55 - Be Mine

"Don't give your heart away carelessly," her mother said. "Lose your heart, lose your soul."

Did she listen? Of course not! Love was too intoxicating, promising new vistas where all was possible.

Everything, including heartbreak.

But to those who would say "I told you so," she raised her chin. "At least I took a chance."











It's a little late for Valentine's, but when I saw this lost pin, I couldn't resist. 

Have you written a story in fifty-five words? Let The G-Man know!

Awe. Cute blue pin. Yes, love leaves one vulnerable, that's for sure. Anyway, when does youthful "love" ever take advice?

It's definitely better to have loved. And isn't Valentine's all year round? :)

I agree Ann, but usually not at the time of the separation.
Love your Love-Lost 55.
There's no season for Heartache.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Good for her, taking the chance. You can't get anywhere without trying, and love is well worth trying for.
