A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments and that is right here. Remembering the less than fun part of dating, back when I bothered.
Why is it that the more aloof and unresponsive you are,
the more they pursue?
And from the moment you show interest and eagerness
you are left hanging, wondering what the hell just happened
This is an absurd paradox, a contradiction in words and actions
when from their lips come “I want you, I desire you”
while their demeanour, if not hands, push you away
It’s a cruel and useless game
