Perpetual Slow-Mo

Today’s word at Word of the Day Challenge is “wish.”


Wishes, no matter

how heartfelt how

life-or-death-impossible

can sometimes

surprise you and

come true and life

is suddenly perfect.

 

Other wishes don’t

stand a chance in

Hell

of turning out and

when they don’t

your heart shatters like

great grandmother’s

Christmas ornaments—

in sudden, perpetual

slow-mo.

And you truly

aren’t

that surprised.
