Trifextra: Ignite

Woman on Fire


I stood there, in the rain, trying to remember something good.

The hurt is overpowering. Gasoline in my wound.

A rebellion begins somewhere deep inside.

I am hollow. I am on fire. And you are gone.

This weekend, we are revisiting a prompt we’ve done before.  We are giving you three words and asking that you add another 33 to them to make a complete 36-word response.  You may use the words in any order you choose.

I want to say thank you to everyone who read and voted for Monsters At the Gate: Part 3 — it makes my day to know that people are reading and enjoying my writing!

  1. Suzanne, the emotion, how it’s felt physically is so powerfully written in this piece. WOW! Love. It.!

  2. Congratulations on placing the top three for this week. Yours was one of my favorites but someone missed the voting. My first trifecta 😦 Look forward to reading more of your work.
