A Painted Poem

June 27 Flash Fiction

This post is for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch.  In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that involves paint. It can be fresh, peeling or in need of a coat. What is being painted and why? Go where the prompt leads!

*****************************************

I had a picture painted in my mind

But where was I going to find

Someone who completed me

To give them my hearts key

 

Then one night

My heart took flight

Meeting you, such a delight

 

I want to paint you a picture in a poem

How long it was, how long I roamed

To find a person that would love me

One who wanted to spend an eternity

 

The night I met you I started a new life

One year later we became husband and wife

Thirty-two years have now passed

Baby it has been a blast
