Writing prompt: write a short story using the title/lyrics of a song.
These songs just came on my ” Sweet Soulful Sunday” Spotify player randomly. Here’s a short( love) story using the lyrics from the two songs.. here we go!
I keep forgetting we’re not in love any more, I keep forgetting things will never be the same again. It all started a year ago, we fell out of love. Slowly, like a cancer eating away at an organ. It started in one area of our relationship , then spread and took over every other aspect. Before I knew it you were asking me to leave. To give you space to think and reflect on exactly what it is that you want.
What happened to us? What happened to the days when I thought we were happy? Sometimes I sit down and wonder why? Why are you gone? I thought our love was real and true.
It was spring when we met, like a breath of fresh area we got caught up in the whirlwind of dates, laughing, joking and getting to know this wonderful new person. But now you’re gone, and I no longer lay down at night with you. I see you in the street, at the library, at the cafe and every time you’re near, every time I see your face, and hear you say “hello you can only stay awhile” it makes me want to break down, and cry. How comes I keep forgetting we’re not in love anymore? How comes I keep forgetting things will never be the same again?
Every time I hear how you never want to live a lie, I wonder why? Was you ever happy or just her for the sake of it. The love went, then the intimacy . What is the lie, what is it that you can’t stand anymore. Are you hiding something from me?
Here’s a response from the other person in the relationship!
I’m sorry I told you to go, but it was the best thing for me as I needed to grow. Every morning I wake up, before I put on my make-up I say a little prayer for you.. wishing that you will be OK, and you will find someone new who can love you and be true. While I’m combing my hair, and wondering what dress to wear everyday, I say a little prayer for you. That God can send you someone new and true.
We were together for a year and I swear that forever and ever you’ll stay in my heart, I will always love you. But I don’t think I am the one for you.
Break ups are hard, especially when you can’t understand why a relationship fell apart, to live with out you will mean heart break for me. When I was with you trust me darling there was no one for me but you, yes I’m still in love you .But I must do what’s best for me. I wish you well but now I must say fair well.
Aww! How sad it’s never nice when things fall about in relationships, but sadly they do. Be careful who you give you’re heart to.
Happy soulful Sunday people!
