#NaPoWriMo What she is and is not


Believe me, tha’art not the love of my life

Lo, nor thou the guardian of my heart

Ostensibly we were never together

Gladly, though, neither of us wish to depart

We never viewed this state with desirous eyes

In accidental writerliness there was no strife

For there, connected at the mind and

Eventually wed through words, we chose this hardwired life.




Prompt: Describe something in terms of what it is NOT.

  7. I agree with others Lizzi – I enjoyed this a lot and the last line is definitely my favourite too, it is a killer, that whole first part too “Eventually wed through words”, classic. I also missed it was an acrostic on the first read until I read the comments but the fact that you managed to slip that in there suggests that the piece had enough power to hide it very well πŸ™‚

      Why thank you very much indeed. There’s a whole back-story to how I ended up with a BlogWife, but it’s very sweet and…not on this blog, but it’s an adorable little story of serendipity and two writers who are apt to get a bit carried away.

      Thank you for such wonderful compliments πŸ™‚
