One mistake that could have been prevented
But not easily fixed.
Stir until the bumps begin to smooth out.
Add a dash or glimmer of hope to taste;
Enough that it can still be crushed
But not enough to overpower.
Let sit until it ferments
Sinking into the crevices in your brain
Leaving you with nothing
But an aftertaste
Of what could have been.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award 🙂
This is genius, I love it!
So happy to meet a fellow logophile! Looks like we enjoy some of the same books on Goodreads too (lets be friends!) Enjoyed sipping on this. Hope to see more of you. Come back and see me again and stop to say hi, won’t you?
Thanks for stopping by Write Like Rowling. I love your poetic writing style (and your blog is beautifully displayed!).
I really get a kick out of how you display your unique and vibrant style. A certain “grace” unfolds while reading your works. Inserting those “surprise” type endings; is a “hallmark” practice of solid brilliance. Good stuff… period.
