From the fabulous Trifector folk – this weeks words is STONE. The word lithium comes from the Greek word lithos, which means stone. This weekend, we want you to give us a thirty-three response using the word stone as one of your thirty-three words. You can use any definition of the word that you’d like, but we are specifically looking for serious, well-conceived entries.
I attempt to have a well – conceived, serious entry, but as we know thoughts, like words at times are never set in stone.
Ooh err Missus… That is very profound.. Awesome..
That is such a compliment and I thank you SO much. I seem to still be in my dark side 🙂 xx
This is brilliantly painful. It comes across as the person is being evil But I don’t think that’s the case at all. I think this person has just been hurt really badly over and over again. Very good writing.
Thanks Bo – yes, my intent, having been abused (in this piece) she finds no fulfilment in his death for the wrongs that he did to her. Thank you for such a great comment.
Such a powerful message in such few stanzas. Great work.
Thank you my darling. xx
This is excellent – well done, Ramblings! 🙂
Thank you too Lyn! 🙂 x
still the satisfaction or closure is incomplete. The continued frustration so apparent.
VERY much so – she wants to prolong the agony for him…as he did with her. Thank you Amber xx
This one was truly awesome…death will not undo the scars left on her soul…so very true
Well said RG, they will not. Thank you very much hun. xx
Fortunately it’s a start on her finding her equilibrium and allowing scar tissue to form. Well done! Her frustration is evident.
I thank you Steph, though I think with the last line…her frustration has a way to go before she is completed satisfied 😉
He took away everything that she cherished -her dignity,her self respect,her “life” & his death came too late -thus this venom,I guess.What a terrific piece,loved the apt pic supporting it too-he was rotten (inside)when alive & now he rots (from outside as well)below-fabulous!
So glad you like the pic and that is exactly why I chose it! Clever lady you 🙂 Thanks for your comments sweet – you always delve into what is written, far more than what I delve when I write! x
:-)Glad I delved in the correct direction.Funny you say that but I feel the same way when people come & comment on a post & I go,”Oh,I never saw that” & I am the writer,lol!That’s the fun part about being a reader-one can sit back & look for hidden nuances-that reminds me of Robert Frost’s “Road not taken”-every time I read it ,I find a different meaning:-)
whew. no mistaking the feelings there.
No pretty blunt and brutal – thanks HT for your thoughts. x
I think she had some leftover pain she needed to inflict upon him. If she endured his torture for a long time, death might be too quick. (It’s kind of sick that I’m thinking that much about this, so I’m going to move on now :))
🙂 Janna you are correct…I laughed at you moving on…I felt I could write more to describe what she would have liked to have done to the ‘bastard’ but 33 words made that a little tricky! Thanks for popping over and your thoughts.
There’s no mistaking her feelings here! Well done.
Appreciated Stacey – thank you.
This is a great expression of very specific emotions. The death of an abuser is hardly ever a triumph; it is simply, in some cases, a necessity for the victim to feel safe again. Kudos.
Eric I am honoured for your visit and your words – thank you very much.
A very powerful voice. Nicely done.
Appreciated badguy – thank you.
ATRM you are one amazing lady 🙂
Very powerful. I love your use of stone and the strength of your MC.
Thank you Sarah and also for visiting and commenting, I appreciate your thoughts.
Wow. Very powerful. Great job.
Thanks for reading. 🙂

wow pain and hatred oozing fro this piece. great work:)
Just a little bit perhaps 😉 thank you kz x
Your lines remind me of my own from a play I was in called the Cemetery Club…only my favorite line from that wasn’t a spoken one…I said it all when I snuffed out my cigarette on old hubby’s headstone.
Touche to you lovely- sometimes actions speak louder than words 😉 xx
Yeah! Show him how much he hurt you! Bastard indeed!
There were so many words I could of used – but I tried to ‘play nice’ 😉 Thanks Draug! x
Death ends the abuse but the memories and torment of what happens lingers forever. Very, very sad. But, I’m glad he’s six feet under!!!
Sadly yes memories do remain. Those that abuse give no thought to their atrocities. I am glad too, though I think she wanted to ‘get even a little more’ than what she had 😉 Thank you for stopping by Gina and your thoughts.
Preach it!! I’m a firm believer in letting those feelings rip! *hides behind neighboring tombstone*
Come out..come out where ever you are 😉 thanks Kymm x
Ow …. that was very venemous. Remind me never to tick you off!
I would never get angry with you sweetness 🙂 xx
Not even if I made your head sore with talk of time travel?
I burst out laughing KK… Um errrr possibly 😉 xx
biting.. well done in so few words.
xx thank you hun.
