100 Word Challenge

My first attempt at a 1-word prompt. Let's see how this goes, shall we?

Velvet Verbosity's word for this week:


Once tender and soft,
now calloused and thin,
I give you my skin as I scour your
and muddy clothes.

Once streaked with red and styled with care,
now streaked with white
and split at the ends,
I give you my hair as salon money is saved for your
favorite books,
shoes that fit only briefly,
and extra cheese pizza.

Once saved for lengthy, pulse-pounding stares across smoke-filled rooms,
now saved for pistaschio-flavored kisses over Lego-strewn floors,
I give you my heart.
Every ounce of my love,
Every bit of my hopes,
rest within your 6 sticky hands...
