A Missed Engagement

She:  you lied to me in September

He:   my dear I don't remember

She:  you said we would wed in spring

He:    I don't remember a thing

She:   you promised our love forever

He:    now that would be an endeavor

She:   are you mocking me now, kind Sir?

He:    no, my mind's a bit of a blur

She:   then you never meant a word

He:    I'm sorry, this is absurd

She:   then leave me now, you swine

He:    madame, the pleasure is mine


Izy's Challenge - A document for discussion

NaPoWriMo #10


  1. And another one bites the dust.
    I have to wonder if either of them really meant it, or if they just got caught up in the conversation, throwing, as it were, the baby out with the bathwater.
    Whichever it was, you did a magnificent job of writing this in apparently effortless rhyme, Ellecee. Good work.

  2. What a dialogue ~ Perhaps its just as well it never came true ~

  3. I love the Dorothy Parker feel to this piece: reverent and relevant, and rhyming for all the right reasons. Thanks so much for documenting this discussion for my prompt!!!! viva la

  4. HA! Now that is quite a conversation. And your rhyming is spot on.

  5. Entertaining to read and I enjoyed the feeling of couplets. Sounded like everyone was happy in the end!

  6. True love gone awry...poor lady or actually...she's better off given the character-hood of that guy! :)

  7. You rhymed a conversation! My hat is off to you. ha

  8. lol! bold and in your face!
    Great job on the prompt

  9. what a mighty fine a Victorian fancy..
