Last Week’s Prompt:
Start a story or a poem with the phrase… I SHOULD HAVE READ THE CONTRACT.
Title: His Contract
I should have the read contract
but now it is too late
He took it all away from me
My looks that got me somewhere
my knowledge that got me everywhere
He even took my memories
which is why I’m writing this down
So every morning when I awake
It will be with a frown
Never again will I make a foolish mistake
such as the one I made last harvest
He got the whole village fooled
but their hearts were still guarded
He sensed my vulnerability
and took it all away
I’m writing this down to remember it all
and what happened on that horrible day
Now I sit alone in my tent
With nothing more than a mat in my name
For on that day, that horrid day,
He took it all away
when I should have read the contract.
Next Week’s Prompt:
Much love, XOXO,
