CW: Vision – is it everything?

– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.
[Source: iScribIr]


I cannot see you,

but I know you’re near.

I smell your peony perfume

before you even enter the room.

Your intention is to take me by surprise,

but I hear you tiptoeing towards me in the hall.


As you gently place your hand on my shoulder,

I tremble, filled with warmth.


I cannot see you,

but I can definitely taste the love on your lips.

    1. When I read that “vision” was the prompt I automatically imagine someone who is blind. I wanted to showcase how other senses are heightened once one is lost. But it can totally be the dark, too!


  1. I really admire your creative writing pieces. The mirror one inspired a writing idea that’s I’m still working out the details for. I like how these one focuses on the senses. It reminds me of how there are others ways to describe than what we see. I like how people’s voices and laughter can single them out in a crowd.

    1. I’m super happy to hear that the mirror piece of mine sparked something in you. Can’t wait to read it once you’re done.
      Most definitely. We rely on so many things to know the world. Seeing is not the only one.

  2. Very creative and interesting. I think I felt as though the person was in the dark because I am not blind so I didn’t think of that when I read it. But after seeing some comments are re-reading I can see the other perspective more clearly. Great job as always Goldie!

    1. Thank you, Christy.
      It’s definitely open to interpretation. Andrea thought of the dark, too. I can totally see that.
      Hearing what different people see and feel after reading my pieces is absolutely phenomenal.
