Tell Satan Hello for Me

He, once her lover,
shattered all illusions of faith,
stabbing her with the brevity
of harsh words spewing
from his forked tongue,
and an utter lack of remorse
on his handsome face.

He carved love out of her chest
with a masterful finesse,
leaving her bleeding and reeling
and but a bitter nostrum to ease her misery.


As she throws gold coins
and the diamond ring
into the cold dank wishing well
for him she has no love or empathy
and this is her Cri De Coeur,
‘Tell Satan hello for me
as he welcomes you to hell.’

Author’s Note: Use at least 10 of the words to create story or poem. I opted to use coins for money.
