His last wish- #55words #Drabbleweek

Alone he lay amidst the filth and the grime
Abandoned, twisted, broken

He had no strength left to stand
She had crushed him without remorse
Tossing his spirit away

He had a frail hope
That someone would find him
And use him just once
Surely, somebody would want one last drag of him, the cigarette?

  1. First it was a paper bag…now it is a cigarette! You’ve been putting life in all these inanimate objects quite skillfully, I must say 🙂

  2. How do you come up with so much imagination? 🙂 This is so impressive. Loved the way you intertwined an important message in this little poem. Very well done!

So, what did you think?
