Flash Fiction #14 – Song of the Maze

Gloria waited, 

crammed in the tight cell. 

Once in a blue moon, 

Only You by the Platters would play. 

Her cell would open, 

she would escape through the maze; 

its walls aglow with brilliant lights 

that danced about 

like the Aurora Borealis.

But even in the dark, 

she could’ve found her way. 

She’d run the maze countless times, 

knew the dead-ends by heart. 

It was that song 

that brought her back 

into Tom’s arms. 

Once there, 

she’d savor every remaining note with him. 

When it ended, 

back she’d go 

to do it all again.
