Soul laid Bare

Soul laid Bare

We stroll across the abyss, shoulders barely brushing, taking in each moment together in this place as if it may be our last. My hand, groping for yours, finds solace in these stolen moments with you. My heart beating as loudly in my mind as in my chest.

“I love you,” I whisper softly in your ear.

You turn to be and smile knowingly. “It’s always been you,” he professed.

Quarantine baring down on us, we knew this was the time to say what needed to be said. No longer concerned by daily trivialities, we decided our love changes everything.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 161

As I snapped this image on our last travel before quarantine in 2020, the Red Hot Chili Peppers ran through my mind:

When I use my own images for our prompts, I often preview post them on Instagram where we can follow each other!

Are you on Instagram? If you aren’t, you should! We’d love to follow you there!! If you are, reach out to us so we know who you are!! Let’s build our writing community both here and across platforms!

Let’s get social 🖤

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided.
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I try to read them all and post your submission in the Weekly Windup.
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions!
