‘Skin’ – FFF43

Matt has a corker of a song for us this week as our #FFF (Flash Fiction Foray) prompt this week!

Neon Music Sign

Skin by Rag’N’Bone Man.

And here’s my take!

You.
The almost perfect one.
The one that got away.
We never got past that initial stage, before our future crumbled before my very eyes.
I can still remember the feel of your touch upon my skin, as you brushed past me.
My eyes followed you, as you strode purposefully ahead, my heart and mind conjuring up images of our ‘happily ever after’.
Then, as quickly as I had imagined our future, you destroyed it. Crushed it.
With that one kiss.
Not on my lips.
But on the mouth of another man…
Why do I always choose the wrong blokes?!

    The almost perfect one – but there always has to be a catch! Very nicely captured, Ritu.

    You really grabbed the melancholic feel of loss from the song, and I really liked the self-depreciating humour of the end – thanks for taking part!
    Best wishes, Matt
