Lie With Me

Icicles creaked on the eaves as wind whirled and murmured in the pines. Cool turned to frigid as they enveloped themselves in layers of clothes and quilts seeking warmth. He’d pulled her in with,

“Would you lie with me? Lets forget about the cold.”

Back to front, his warm breath sighed in her ear as he implored,

“Close your eyes. Show me a garden that’s bursting.”

The room grew bitter and frosty as the warmth was wrung out. Noses chilly buttons as heat vanished under the shroud. Weak and listless, sluggish words beseeched,

“Lie with me and forget the world.”


100 Word Song from Lance at “My Blog Can Beat up Your Blog”. His lovely wife Deana chose this week’s song “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol. I decided on a piece of flash fiction. You can find the post HERE as well as the linky with other writers pieces.

    I love the use of cold. It’s a character. Great 100.

    I also enjoy Chasing Cars and winter time, but I had not heard this song before and don’t expect to experience a winter here in Hawaii 😦 But your words brought it back.

    it begins so cuddly and comforting, sharing warm…and by the end it seems as if the cold has won, the world is forgotten.
