Nothing I'd Rather


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

There's nothing I would rather see

Than your smile as you walk to me

There's nothing that I'd rather do

Than have the guts to run to you

There's nothing I would rather say

Than "I love you; don't go away"

There's nothing in my future left

I've got no courage; I'm bereft.

The repetition of 'there's nothing' is a good lead up to the end. It's not foreshadowing exactly but it exists in parallel. I think you've captured your subject nicely. I empathize with the narrator. Good job!
