I was the lucky one

Another Inspiration from Trifecta Week 70  The word is   LUCKY (adjective)  The 3rd definition to be used. Please remember: Your response must be between 33 and 333 words. You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
The word itself needs to be included in your response.
You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above.

1: having good luck
2: happening by chance : fortuitous
3: producing or resulting in good by chance : favorable

I am the Lucky One

Lives interwoven as folded leaves
upon the vine love coursed through my veins
pumped to my heart
kindred spirits found in time
 promises of
…..forever more
who knew we would have these
moments this chance
… experience love so rare
a meeting of two strangers
unity of body and of mind
…..this mate of souls
it was luck that brought you to me
sun filled morns’ and candled nights
shades of your face smiling
…..reach out to me now
your voice
I hear you whisper
…..”I will now and forever be yours”
but as I stand
…..beside your grave
my pain cannot be doused
my tears are molten gems
that spring from the red volcano
…..known only as my heart

I welcome your critique – hopefully I written as indicated in the 3rd meaning.



I am yours to Infect

Ahh Trifecta here we go again. Week 69.
Sadly I do not get the prompts arghhh! yes frustrating, I have tried to get them emailed but it doesn’t work, so I rely on seeing others post and then I jump in to join these extremely talented ‘artists’ who put forth their submissions. For they are artists those who write…in my humble opinion anyway. I have not read any others. So here I go again and good luck to everyone.
This prompt is to use the definition below. The word is INFECT.3a : contaminate, corrupt <the inflated writing that infects such stories>    b : to work upon or seize upon so as to induce sympathy, belief, or support <trying to infect their salespeople with their enthusiasm>

You have the ability to corrupt
should I be wary?
the control
the influence

Drawn in by you
mesmerised did you know
this is how I feel
my mind races

No one else
to blame
no one but myself
I continue just for you

I attempt
creme de la creme
I wish

The front
the middle or
back of the line
I shall persist

You infect me 
and I hang on
your words

I care not  for sleep
partaking in your
tis’ part of me… who I am

contaminate and bring
out the best of me
I dare you
entice, allure with a single word

Make me believe
that what I write
is worthy
for I am enthused


For t….t…. Trifecta – Picture11-1-1

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,  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

What have you Done

She was reminded of her child-hood
her days in the park
playing on the merry-go-round
not a carousel with painted horses
that majestically rose and fell
when she pretended she was riding
a ‘real’ horse,  but the iron circular
playground ‘swing’
she knew it by no other name
holding onto the iron, her feet running fast
beside it, trying to gain speed
so that she may then jump upon
to enjoy the ride
though sometimes giddiness happened
her head would feel light
she even thought she would be sick
this is what she felt like now
the scenery around her was blurry
her stomach did not feel well
she wanted it to stop
she wanted to get off
the merry-go-round memories
came flooding back
a hotel room the two of them
he handed her a cocktail
did he doctor it
and why?
