Daily Prompt: Love Never Lasting

Do you have a tattoo? If so, what’s the story behind your ink? If you don’t have a tattoo, what might you consider getting emblazoned on you skin?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERMANENT.

I have a tattoo between my breasts
Inked there for a boy I once loved
Long gone now though ink remains
Forever there it taints
Each day reminding
Innocence fades
It taunts me
Stills me


*Nonnet: A nonnet is a type of poem which has nine lines, with the first line having 9 syllables, the second 8 syllables, the third 7 until the ninth line has only one. Some nonnets may also have an iambic meter (stress on every other syllable).

  1. Great poem and I love the image you’ve made out of it!
    I imagine quite a percentage of the population has a tattoo celebrating a long-gone lover. A permanent reminder, as your poem says.

    1. Thank you, Dr Ali! Yep, it is permanent,that’s for sure! Still finding a nice tattoo to append to it LOL maybe something in dwarvish or elvish,who knows…as long as it doesn’t cover my whole chest though 😀
