No matter what feelings I had, I chose to either call on a lady friend or tap on the worn keys of my trusty Spinet. They were inextricably interwoven. Each influencing the other. Today, Freddie Is on my mind. She is a feisty dame with attitude to match a mans but she had won my rogue heart. I married her and have written songs to her since. Freddie is my music. Now, I am dying in a sanatorium. People think that I’m out of my head but I know what’s going on. I’ll miss you, babe.

The prompt this week was to write a short (100 words or less) using the picture prompt above. Rochelle inspired us with the tragic life and love of Scott Joplin and his wife, Freddie Joplin. I followed that idea. For more information on their story see the above link. 🙂
