Free Write Friday, #FWF

Well looky, looky! It’s Friday once again and I cannot tell you all just how happy I am that the weekend has arrived. I’m also excited to work on the Free Write Friday prompt from  Kellie Ellmore’s blog.  Today the free write gets us to take ending lines from a book or poem and write from that.  I chose Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. Not my favorite book but one that I’ve read so many times that I can recall this line without much effort.  The line is “There was the hum of bees, and the musky odor of pinks filled the air.”

I’m going to start off with the line and take it from there. Here we go:

There was the hum of bees
and the musky odor of pinks 
filled the air.
I looked around for you,
slow to remember 
your absence deliberate.
I was bleeding underneath
my skin
aching 
for you, 
for  it, 
the beginning
stretched out
like some
illusion.
 
I could not master 
use of language
for as badly
as I wanted to 
call out, say
to you
goodnight, yes, and please
my tongue,
aligned with the roof
of my mouth, 
was as thick
as perfume.
