Black Dog and a Young Man

A BLACK DOG AND A YOUNG MAN

Didn’t I tell you I’d come back?

Didn’t I?

Not everyone breaks their promises

I don’t

I can tell you that right now

I’ll never lie to you

And I’ll never break a promise

You are my only friend

My best friend

I can promise you that

 

S.E.Ingraham

from a prompt put up by Tess Kincaid at The Mag based on artwork “black dog” by Zelco Nedic,

If you're so inclined, I'd love to hear from you ...
