Remnants Of Someone’s Wishes

I still feel your words across my skin,

in the nights of summer breeze and moonlight,

those tiny letters inked into the places un-found

by anyone’s kisses but yours.

I still feel you writing yourself into me,

finding hiding places for all your secrets.


It’s Monday and that means dropping by to the dVerse Poets Pub to see what’s on offer behind the bar. Tonight’s poetry prompt is to write a quadrille using the prompt breeze. Can you write a poem in just 44 words?

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


  1. Everybody’s gettin’ all romantic with this breeze thing. I love it. Those last two lines, especially, are gorgeous.

    Oh! How romantic this is and yet, I feel like the person is missing the inker. Love all the lines in this. I’d have to copy and paste the whole poem.
