Summary: for 138 words?

*****

In this church I vowed to love you forever,
to forsake all others, to be there in good times and in bad.
I tried to be the perfect woman that you wanted me to be.

It was a lot of hard work, because I was not perfect.
Like a juggler I tried to keep all the balls in the air.
Work. Marriage. Child. House. Animals.

I, however, aimed too high. The balls started to drop.
I couldn’t hold them in the air anymore. I was not perfect.

And you? You, who promised, here in this church,
to be in there in bad times and in good,
you just turned around and found someone else.

Now, I’m alone. It doesn’t matter though.
For I no longer need to be perfect.
I have learned that, after all, I’m only human.

100 word drabble

*****
(The tangram: a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only in outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap.)

My shrink calls it a very interesting experiment, but I don’t care. I look at all the pieces, they are still very ugly to me.
I could use the triangle as the head. And other parts as the body, but I know it will not tell the story of me.
It will not show, that I see myself in the silhouette that I’m making with the pieces of the tangram. Ugly, square, not very elegant.
It is how I see myself. Just plain ugly. And at that moment, I realize my mistake. I see my shrink’s interested look. He knows.

100 Word drabble

*****

He's amazed by the beauty around him. In the bright sunlight the wings of the females are like green transparent dresses. He cannot choose.
Then he sees her. She’s more delicate than any of the others and he knows: she’s the one. She sees him too. She wants him too.
And he is about to fly over to her, when he feels something yank him away from her. A long muscular tongue curls around him.
It picks him out of the air with ease, he cannot fight it and he dies as he gets swallowed whole. Sometimes life just sucks.
