The Big Bad (A Poem)

There is a lovely prompt going on at:


where one is encouraged to make the wolf the victim.  It’s asking for flash fiction but…I’ve written this.  I may submit it.  Please pop on over with your own submission!

The Big Bad

He loved her
as though time had stood still.
But time hadn’t stood still.
It raged on
like a flood of droplets
onto and down and over
the roof
into the gutters of love.
She loved him
too much
to bring his roof down.
He loved her too much
to know the difference.
And so they lived
and ever after.
