In Other Words — Beyond Repair

4F22CEEA-4DA2-4B49-9B0B-39EDBFFC8189Ever since our first date, the chemistry between us was undeniable, and our relationship fell into a comfortable rhythm for both of us.

Yet the concept of true love has always been a nebulous one for me.

Sadly, over time, a fissure in our once beautiful relationship occurred, and that rift began to tear our love asunder.

And as much as it pains me to admit this, I lack the tools to repair our broken love.

I’m so, so sorry, but whatever this thing called love is supposed to be, I just don’t feel it anymore.

In other wordsWritten for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the picture above and/or the word “repair.” Photo credit: Steve Buissinne from Pixabay.

Also written for the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver prompt, where the challenge is to write about the word “sorry.”

And also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (date), Daily Addictions (rhythm), Word of the Day Challenge (love), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (nebulous), Ragtag Daily Prompt (fissure), and Your Daily Word Prompt (sunder).

    It is funny how we got the same plot from these random words!

      They just seemed to fit…at least we both apparently thought so!

    A journey captured beautifully! They say that love lasts only 2-3 years. Whatever occurs after that is caring, understanding or …. what you describe.

    It does happen over time. I still like to believe there is someone out there for all of us, just waiting to be found. I know, a hopeless romantic I am! Great job on all the prompts.

      I hope you don’t mind my “multitasking” by incorporating other prompts with yours.
