Trifecta Week 58 STONE

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.


Under earth
now, Β your abuse
the torturing of…me
as you lay
in darkness
with rotting flesh
this gives me… no
I spit
on your gravestone
rot in hell

  1. 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.

  2. 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 πŸ™‚ 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:-)

  3. 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 :))

    • πŸ™‚ 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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 πŸ˜‰ Thank you for stopping by Gina and your thoughts.
