Weekend Writing Prompt — Oblivious

B9BC02A6-835E-4EAB-8A92-D9F2BC44DA9FDo you remember that night?

I think it was on the 10th.

Everyone in the room turned to the door

And watched her slowly sashay across the floor

Believing it was her moment to shine,

She glanced around the room

And seeing everyone looking at her,

Flashed a gratuitous smile, as phony as she is.

Totally oblivious to the glacial stares

From all the other women who were there.

(Exactly 66 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where we are challenged to write a poem or piece of prose using the word “glacial” in exactly 66 words. Also for these daily prompts: Ragtag Daily Prompt (night), Swimmers (10th), The Daily Spur (door), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (sashay), Word of the Day Challenge (shine, phony), Your Daily Word Prompt (gratuitous), and sammiscribbles (glacial).

    Good use of prompts. It’s not her fault she’s a knockout. I used to get tired of those hateful looks. It’s like don’t worry ladies I’m not going to steal your dates. Yes, I know it’s hard to believe I used to be that hot. Jealous women can be real b’s to a pretty woman.
