3WW #54



Welcome to Three Word Wednesday. Each week, I will post three (or more) words. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write something using all of those words. It can be a few lines, a story, a poem, anything. I'll also attempt to write something using the same words.

Leave a comment if you participate. Many fun and interesting people might visit your blog.

This week's words are:
Caught
Eager
Perfume


Perfume hint caught
Memory sparked
That year I was in love

Eager heart leapt
Lesson relearned
Forever is but a word

Freely falling fast
Feeling remembered
And missed

Past replaces present
Eyes now tightly closed
Smile grazes lips

Midnight phone calls
Sultry afternoons
Slinky black dress

Past recedes to past
I'll always believe
I loved you best

"Most of what I remember makes me sure, I should've stopped you from walking out the door..."

  1. Good afternoon, thank you Bone for such provocative words this week. My mind immediately thought of sex, so this weeks offering is called "Workout". Hope you enjoy. ;)

  7. I was too eager. I desperately wanted to be caught.

    The perfume that I bathed in left not a trance of scent.

    There were no markers. No way of finding me.

    Once again I was alone in eager desperation. To be caught would have meant recognition.

    The street was heavily scented with the perfume of unknown interlopers.

    I faded into oblivion.
    Perhaps this was my fate.

  8. Mmmm... I loved this prompt! It sent me off in an unexpected direction. It's fascinating to see all the different places the same three words take people.

    Mine for this week is To the Heart of It

  9. A tragic tale of redemption found and lost


    An Accidental Life

  10. I also thought of something risque, and just a tad dark. It's based on the movie, Perfume (which I don't really recommend as it's beyond strange).

    I also did an audio version. I've been playing around with recordings and ... I don't know, I thought I'd start reading some of my work. I think it helps me to look at my work from a different angle.

    Not happy with it - I actually wanted to go darker. But people close to me read my blog ... so there you go. *smile*

  27. Cool poem Bone. I like the slinky black dress and the perfumed memories.

  28. Bone I'm truly speechless. Was up all night working

    This poem hit me so hard--in a good way. Totally related

    Don't know what to pick out. Loved each stanza for what each one had to say and how it was said

    But that last stanza, that last one
    Past recedes to past
    I'll always believe
    I loved you best

    Oh yes, yes, yes

    OK I always have something to say--especially when totally sleep deprived an can't be as eloquent as I would like to be

    ReplyDelete
  29. how do you do this? I'm so in awe of this type of poetry
    That year I was in love

    The second, third...stanza's

    Oh let my sleep deprived self shut up

    ReplyDelete
  30. Bone, your poem reminds me that you are a romantic at heart. I loved your poem. Keep up the good work. And, thank you for having 3WW each week. I have enjoyed writing/ commenting with everyone. Keep up the good work.

    Michelle

  31. Bone, your poem is filled to the brim with youth, young love, and loss. I loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. my poor sleep deprived self meant to say:

    It's over but the feeling of knowing that you loved the best--not the
    most--not the clingy--not the overt whatever in the end--but knowing
    that nobody can ever love that person that way

    There is and isn't satisfaction in that

    I'm totally out of it--3 comments on one poem--but I did love it so much

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wonderful poem, Bone. Makes me nostalgic.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Rose: Thank you. I'm a fan of slinky dresses.

    Pia Savage: There is and isn't satisfaction in that

    Well said, 'tor. I think I kinda like you sleep-deprived :)

    Michelle: Bone, your poem reminds me that you are a romantic at heart.

    I plead the 5th :) Thank you. I'm glad you're enjoying 3WW.

    Writerwoman: Thank you. Those are very kind words.

    Lissa: Thanks, Lissa. It made me a bit nostalgic, too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bone - I loved this poem - I must have a 'forever love' in the back of my mind, too. Nice, oh, nice!

    ReplyDelete
  36. The slinky dress, but the last verse... I hope you find someone to love "bester".

    ReplyDelete
  37. There are not enough words.

    I hope you recognize your talent and can see it in everything you write.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My heart honestly hurts reading this.

    I have read and re-read this poem too many times to count tonight, searching for the right words that would adequately convey what I’m thinking and feeling, and just do not have any.

    I’m positively speechless.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The smell of an old flame's perfume can quickly open a floodgate of memories. Some smells are best left for the past. Slinky black dresses though are timeless.

    Excellent poem.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very nice.

    "Past recedes to past
    I'll always believe
    I loved you best"

    Reminds me of a girl I almost married. A girl, now a dear friend, who just came to visit.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Before anything else registered, the alliteration did. I had read it a second time o get the gist.

    Oldest is difficult to forget!

    Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Here's mine--its a short 3WW that reflects my dislike of strong perfume. I'll post here:

    My nose caught a whiff of her strong perfume, which turned my stomach and made me less than eager to meet her.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Past recedes to past
    I'll always believe
    I loved you best

    I also love this stanza.......perfectly put. The poem was very moving.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I finally posted...and its not up to par but...oh well! enjoy!

    Loved your poem Bone!

    Past recedes to past
    I'll always believe
    I loved you best

    ...Forever is but a word

    WOW! can I say it again...WOW!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Too eager to reach you
    I was caught
    in a net
    of perfume

    Now
    others come and go
    touching my feet
    as they pass.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. I enjoyed the poem sitting in the office in short sleeve, slightly chilly because of the air-con.

    I read it again and felt a sense of nostalgic joy...Summer evening bliss.
