Quadrille Monday

Lillian over at Quadrille Monday at dVerse has provided us the prompt “spoil”.  We are to use it in a quadrille.  This is a poem of 44 words with no particular rhyme scheme or rhythm.


You spoiled me.
You gave me everything I could ever want or need.
I fell head over heels in love with you.

Conquest made,
You could no longer stand the mistress you had styled.
You threw me away like a spoiled piece of meat.

    A sad tale with great contrast in the first and second stanzas using different meanings of spoil.

    Oh….this is NOT a nice person!
    Isn’t that the truth though, in some relationships? People try to mold a person into someone they love…in those instances, somehow, the clay always begins to droop (so to speak).

    • I agree. I think it is also a power trip for some people. They enjoy destroying the hearts of others. It is an awful thing.
      I appreciate your clay reference. My forefathers were potters and I hope to be one some day.

      Have a blessed day and a very Happy Thanksgiving.😊

  5. Alas there are some who cannot see it different than a game…
    But maybe it is better than those who keep you captive with their fists.

    This heroine does seem to realize that it is not her, it’s him. He might think she’s disposable, spoiled, but she is not the one who stinks. Wonderful precise symmetry and turning of the POV, same word, profound antithetical shift, lands square.
