Lacunae

What I love is defined by what I lack.

In the absence of light: music.

In the absence of sound: stars.

In the absence of sleep: dreams.

Without you, I fell for her.


This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge Trifextra prompt:

One of the most famous songs from [The Sound of Music] is “My Favorite Things.”  Since its inception, the song has been covered by countless artists, and we’re asking you to follow suit.  Give us a few of your favorite things, in whichever form you want, in 33 words exactly.

Not much like the song, I admit. But some of my favorite things nonetheless.

Also, I have a bit of writing up for critique at Trifecta. Please take a moment to check it out and leave me some feedback! Many thanks in advance.
