Writing Prompt Wednesday #32
Song-spiration: Choose a song at random and then select a lyric of that song to serve as the title for your short story. Let the mood of the song and the arc of the song's narrative inform your writing. https://study.com/academy/popular/short-story-writing-prompts.html
NOTE: I put my playlist on shuffle and the song that came up is “Your Eyes” from “Rent”. They lyric I chose is: “Where there’s moonlight I see your eyes.” Also, since Roger is talking to Mimi in this song, I thought it might be fun to do this story as a letter to someone, so it’s a lot shorter than my usual short stories. I hope you enjoy it either way :)
My Dearest Hailey,
We broke things off almost a year ago. I hurt you. A lot. I know that I did. I should’ve only been focused on you, but I lost my way. I lost who I was. And I lost you. It was the biggest mistake of my life.
I’ve thought of you everyday since then. There are times where I’m sitting on the couch and watching TV and I move to put my arm around you and you aren’t there. Or when I go to the cafe and have to stop myself from ordering a large espresso with extra cream and two pumps of vanilla just because it got so natural.
I see you everywhere. I see your hair in the autumn leaves, your lips in the sunset, your eyes in the moonlight. It kills me every time.
I don’t expect you to forget what I did. Or to forgive me right now. That’s too much to ask. But what can I do to get you back? Name anything and I’ll do it. Right now. And please don’t say I can’t do anything. Please.
I miss you so much. Please come back to me Hailey. Please come back.
