In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “An Extreme Tale.”
“It was the Best of Times , It was the worst of times”
She, who was once Burnished Gold,
Today let her own sad story be told
Let tears, her eyes no longer can hold
Tell their story of love’s pain untold.
The girl, she met her soul mate
Together they defied all of fate.
That kept them for eons, from the other, apart
Yes! They felt – they were never meant to part!
The love story over, her dear hero remembered a pledge
Made to another maiden, driving her now to the very edge !!
Alas! The gold that glittered and was ever Burnished
Now looked dull and dark, sad and foreverTarnished !
The very best of times and the very worst of times
Are for some unlucky souls, the very same times !
