As the worm turns

earthworm

Dusty tunnels wend around inside my heart, cutting through the detritus of failed romances. You worm the tender, untouched marrow out of my decaying dreams of love with promises of happily ever after.

The Trifecta challenge this week is: Worm [ transitive verb \wərm\] 3: to obtain or extract by artful or insidious questioning or by pleading, asking, or persuading

  1. That was lovely, and full of hope. Really well done.

  4. Man…I really am such a huge fan of the way that you string words together. The words that you used here seem like harsh ones when you look at them independently, but the actual story that you’re telling is so sweet and lovely, it’s a great combination.
