4 Line Stories: Au Revoir


There was a different feel to the chilly autumn air

It was an unusual calm almost a stillness of life

Maybe the ghosts that haunted her had finally gone

Or maybe she refused to acknowledge them anymore

4 Line Stories: Sealed


With their fate being sealed and buried

It was a tearful and heart wrenching goodbye

The hour of their new dawn was not yet upon them

As their clasped hands parted, time became a thorn in the flesh

4 Line Stories: Behind The Scenes

The stage was set and all the props were in place

This was no ordinary production, it was all improvised

This was as real as it gets and the audience was in for one heck of a show

All the actors were well studied in the art of drama

4 Line Stories: The Border

With the odds against, decisions had to be made

Once the walls went up, perhaps they would never see the light again

The border was there only hope and it seemed so far away

It was either life or living dead inside

4 Line Stories: At A Loss For Words

Stammering and stuttering

We couldn’t quite express what we wanted to say

We were completely carried away by each other’s actions

Love seemed to amplify all we said and did
