What happened?

I’m packing up this house tonight

The agent’s been paid her commission

I don’t want to lose any more time

This dump is no longer mine- hurrah!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

A few hangers, an old photo frame

Boxed up in miles and acres of tape

The irony is that I’m free from stricture

I tap my feet happily- ho hum!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

Her closet; I left that junk for the last

She always needed all those damn shoes

I delve into its insides to clear it all out

Snap my fingers impatiently- clickity click!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

Magniloquent, her voice buzzes in my ears

Everyone calls me the quiet one

Truth is, I never got the chance

The clock hurries me now – tick tock!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

Everything neatly organised

Dresses, skirts, pants and suits

Her smell churns my stomach

Bitter coffee makes me calmer- slurp burp!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

Murky dregs remind me- I marinate on the thought

Thick, grainy incoherent mess.. where before?

Oh yes, that’s right.. I twiddle my thumbs

Crack my knuckles one by one- pop pop!
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

I shift my boxes to the waiting truck

Driver’s seat, grab the steering wheel

Turn my head to wave goodbye

For a moment, I ponder, biting my lip

I put up a pretense of having two minds

But my brain’s a lurid reservoir

What goes in there, rarely comes out.

Oh well, you win some, you win some..

Off I go for a new adventure!

Goodbye garden, goodbye shovel-ta ta!

Dear Readers,

Here’s another response to a wonderful word prompt by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.

The words were:

1. Delve

2. Tonight

3. Murky

4. Reservoir

5. Marinate

6. Commission

7. Stricture (an adverse criticism, an abnormal contraction of any passage or duct of thebody, a restriction)

8. Dregs

9. Magniloquent (speaking or expressed in a lofty or grandiose style;pompous;bombastic; boastful.)

10. Frame

11. Tape

12. Lurid (gruesome, revolting)

Use at least 10 of the words to create a story or poem

The words can appear in an alternate form

Use the words in any order that you like.

Hope you all enjoyed it as I did writing it!
