Desire Unfulfilled (Flash Fiction)


Looking into his eyes

she wanted to comb through his thick hair.

Her fingertips stroked his cheek.

His lips conveyed unspoken love

The top button of his shirt taunted her

“unbutton me

explore”

Desires are taut.

If only he could feel her caress,

return her touch.

Would they ever be free

from his

Coma?

For more Flash Fiction go to the G-Man

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is a sad one but I like it anyway. Should I rant that you made me cry all over my keyboard and now I’ll have to buy a new one? *winks* Thanks for you visit to my 55.

    2. in a earlier post death and ilenlss is something I feel like we will all face no matter what specialty we choose to work in, but oncology must see more than its fair share of sadness. I have heard from nurses and doctors that they seem to become numb to it or push it out of their minds, but I also think I would have a hard time dealing with it.
