Folding












     At six I believed


     all my lies were written down and collected in a bag.







     To this day I always hear the sound of paper folding








   

     when you say you love me


     but





     that wasn't what I meant.

                                                                                 33 Words







This was written for the  Trifextra Challenge and this week the challenge

is to write a 33 word piece ending in the line



that wasn't what I meant



Why don't you pop around and see what it's all about?
Maybe take part and connect with some fab writers and lovely people.

  3. The things that we carry over from childhood-they make it hard to know how to live in the real world sometimes.

    Ally-you nailed this prompt-I really liked it! Excellent work!
