Sublime Sublimation

Today’s writing prompt at MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie is Opposing Forces. We must use the following antitheses in our writing:

– whisper and shout

– humid and dry

yet, you whisper them sweetly

— those cruel, ugly words —

that shout at

the tender places of my heart

too often

your hateful ways make me

wish I were deaf

Our love, once sublime

has sublimated like dry ice

on a humid day.
