A World of Hurt

Rated "G" by the Author.

Uh - oh. LOL

Image (c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

Touble came two stepping into town on the heels of  a Texas twister.  Knew it when I saw her:  she was going to cause a world of hurt.

Her raven hair swirled in the wind; her hips, dangerous ... and she was coming after me.

Hate it when that happens.

She was a girl I met down in San Antonio.  Beautiful.  Dark eyes promised a night of passion. 

And what a night it was.  We turned the sky inside out and back again.

Had to leave in the morning, with only memories to keep me company; over time, they faded.

They came roaring back to life when I saw her. 

She held a little souvenier of our night together:  a baby.

A little carbon copy of me.

Now what was I going to do?

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (12/12)

Oh, my, Karla, you surprised me here! I thought for sure we'd be talking about one of those Texas superstorms. And I was right. What I got was a superstorm of shared passion which really started moving my emotions with your "Dark eyes promised a night of passion."

But I just hate the thought of a baby, a tiny but real person, being thought of as "a little souvenier." For sure, that attitude brings "A World of Hurt." Yes, I say it's time for this stud to stop being a sperm-donor and to start being a man. Babies need fathers, not visitors.

My dear Karla, you packed an amazing amount of drama in so few lines!

A terrific piece of literature by a great writer. Well done!

With all the winds you've been through, I understand the inspiration...Your imagery and word choice more visual than any picture; powerful, and quaintly sexy. You seemed to have written this in December, but of course a good write is timeless.
Great work.
