You and Me



The first time I saw you, I knew you were the one for me. 

Fate had stepped in and brought you to me. 

We fell in love.  

My best friend, we vowed to be one for all time.



This was written for the Trifextra writing prompt #100.   They challenged me to write a 33-word response to the following snippet:
The first time I saw. . .
Here's the catch: all of the 33 words must be one syllable each. 
To clarify, we were given 5 words and asked to add another 33, for a grand total of 38.

    1. jyothisdayout.com, yes it sure was!! I agonized about this one forever, posted it, then agonized about it more. I am so glad you liked what I came up with. This one I was sure was a fail, but maybe it wasn't as bad as I made it out to be. Thank you so much for your sweet comments. Comments really do dig a person out of their pit of despair and see their work in a different light! ♥

  14. I like this! Great photo, too.

    I couldn't write about my husband. The first time I saw him, I had a boyfriend... oh, and he was my boss. Too much mess for 38 one-syllable words, haha :)
