Writing Prompt: The Photo Prompt: No Love for You

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

This week’s prompt is a photo prompt. Write whatever comes to mind, be it a description, a story, or even a poem.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, let’s get thematic and write about unrequited love.

Write something inspired by this photo. 



  1. "I sm ticked. You can stick me in this iced Avian all you want, but I'm still gonna spit nectur in both your eyes at first blink this morning."

  2. It was accidental. He ran into her in front of Macy's Department store on 34th Street. He was entering as she was leaving. After a second of silence and hesitation, she hugs him. They stare at each other.

    He says, "ahhh..."
    She says, "hmmm..."
    He says, "ahamm..."

    She reaches into her handbag and retrieves her Iphone and texts, “Hello”
    His Iphone chimes. He retrieves his phone from his waist holder. It’s a text, “Hello”
    He texts back, “hi”
    Her cell phone dings, a text, “hi”
    He sends another text, “whatcha doing?”
    She texts, "Valentine shopping for hubby. Can’t find anything interesting.”
    “Get him something he wouldn't get himself”
    “Like what?”
    “What's he like?”
    "He's like you"
    "But not as handsome and sexy as me."
    She smiles at her screen and texts, "You would have made a great husband."
    He smiles at his screen and texts, "Another time, another place."
    "Yes, another time, another place."
