Daily Prompt: But No Cigar

Tell us about a time things came this close to working out… but didn’t. What happened next? Would you like the chance to try again, or are you happy with how things eventually worked out?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CLOSE.

I held you in my arms long ago
never knowing that I’d lose you
so quickly, too short a time
for me to remember
just how you felt then.
Partner in crime,
you were


Nonet: A nonet 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. Hi Mme. Muse, to be honest. This is my first time reading a nonet. Quite interesting because you have managed to say a lot in just a short duration. Thanks for dropping by my home!
