True Stories ~ Prompt 2

As easy as ABC or 123

I've done three pieces of writing for the second
prompt and this is the piece I'm sharing with you.

A Lot Can Change In A Decade

 years ago, there were  people,  lives,
 hearts beating as  home,  person working
supporting the  of us.  dream,  hope,  families
not realising they would be joined by our  marriage.
 sets of eyes looking towards  bright future.

 years on, there's still  people, but now with
separate lives. hearts beating alone with no love.
homes,  of us working,  of us unemployed,
struggling to stay afloat. No us.  dream shattered.
No hope, separate families, no marriage, 
  sets of eyes turned away, each looking for new future.

Who would have known that years ago, these lives would change so quickly, so suddenly, so sadly?
