Thinking about topic for P led to thoughts about a dear departed friend and then my head became too murky to write. So decided to go for short fiction instead !

Pictures speak louder than words, her mom said.
She wondered what the fuss was all about
when she recited the poem the boy from the picture taught her

She looked picture perfect in her wedding dress
Only he knew her imperfect tattoo
That she had unsuccessfully tried to remove after their breakup

Picture yourself in a happy place, the yoga instructor repeated.
It was always in his arms,
Even after all these years, they refuse to let her go.


  1. bitter sweet memories..and wonder how many thousands of tatToos there are in the world where the person wishes them away, wishes them undone?


  2. Short and deep.
    Nicely written. :)
