This week’s prompt is bitter loathing. Know anyone who cannot let go of a grudge? Who continues to hate and behave hatefully? Who remains consumed/obsessed with a specific person and/or specific event? Have you found there is someone that even after years you still cannot forgive? A person that brings out the worst in you? A relationship that even if long extinguished leaves the taste of grapefruit in your mouth?

i’m ashamed to admit
Yep, I have those lurking about in my life – but I have learned not to take notice, life’s too precious to allow poison to stay… no anger, no hate is best – learn how to stay calm in the face of them is the ticket, I reckon 😀
Poison is just the right word 🙂
Thanks for the inspiration to write about something not so pleasant, but so important!
Thank you Heather you for sharing your wonderful piece
Fabulous prompt – lovely and dark, my favourite kind!! 🙂 🙂
haha mine too Helen
It’s my bd today and I think I will think about this and write it later. The daylight savings’ time started and I was just robbed an hour sleep but it sure is a great prompt!! I look forward to contributing.
Happy Birthday Oliana! Please don’t think about the prompt today just have fun!
Thanks Yves…by the way my best friend’s husband, whom I celebrated with tonight’s name is Yves…it is how we spell it in French. We have been friends 41 years.
Oh wow! My real name isn’t Yves just my pen name but I quite like it
I do too…it is a very romantic name I find. Oliana is my pen name too.
Lovely I have no idea it wasn’t your name =)
I chose the first 3 letters of my children’s name and it happens to be a real name, meaning Oleander in Hawaiian and another flower in France, and a place in Spain…haha…Oli (my son) ana (my daughter) and Kim is the nickname I called my sis when I was a kid
Well I have some now I hadn’t before
That makes that much more beautiful because of the meaning
Yes, I think we all have someone or something to hate, in my case it is, but not too hard, I can say, “that person I do not like”
I think my hate right now is all directed to the medical institution at the moment.
I wrote this last night, it seems fitting for the prompt. Somethings, we can’t let go of completely.
It can be very difficult indeed
What to write for this when Maynard already described me perfectly 😀
Oooh I hope you do write something
Homework done, now I am going to rest for a while. http://tracesofthesoul.wordpress.com/2014/03/09/bitter-revenge/
Awesome entry =)
Managed to write something, although I don’t think it conveys deeply enough just how much I hold a grudge.
I am going to go read it now sorry for any delays I was eating dinner.
oooops made an error there, http://cheryllynnroberts.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/sludge-the-grudge/
