Writer's Cramp Entry 88 Words
"Your name and mine
inside a heart upon a wall
Still finds a way to haunt me,
though they're so small"

My father's store, a simple shop
becomes my Taj Mahal.
My lover smiles and paints a heart,
our names upon the wall.

The alley holds our whispers
of a love that never parts.
Our wedding date is set
with a kiss beneath the heart.

A heart is just a symbol.
the wall of hate divides.
My lover in the alley,
now a stranger by my side.
