Thorn (an acrostic poem)

The rose bit Olivia’s finger, releasing a single scarlet drop

Hendrik felt horrible.  She was the love of his life and he had caused her pain

Olivia sucked at her wound with a small pout on her face

Realizing he needed to do something, he leaned forward to seal it with a kiss

Never seeing the rose as she smashed it into his face

The Ring (a 100 word story)

The ring bound him to her.  He wondered what insanity had caused him to willingly volunteer to wear the cursed thing in the first place.  Still, in that moment of weakness, he had accepted her boon and doomed his soul.

He looked at the perfect circle of gold and thought about chopping the whole finger off.  He’d be better off maimed for the rest of his life.  He couldn’t do it though.  She had taken so much of his strength that he didn’t have the fortitude anymore.

Instead he closed his eyes and dreamt of her when she was alive.

Crafty (an acrostic poem)

Catching her eye, Miguel made sure to flash his manly charm

Raquel smiled a shy smile and lightly bit her finger

Assuming he was the man, Miguel strutted over

Flirting hard, Raquel gave Miguel a huge hug before dropping him to leave with her friends

Turning away, Miguel told Raquel she was missing out as he walked away in victory

Yet Miguel never noticed his wallet was missing till he got home
