Tragedy To Triumph

MLMM First Line Friday Writing Challenge – “His smile was like some kind of magic.”

I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired.  Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. 

Tragedy To Triumph

His smile was some kind of magic
but little did she know it would become tragic

Oh yes he had the smile and the swag
that blinded her to all the warning flags

His sensual sounding baritone voice would utter
all the words she desired and would melt her like butter

She was mesmerized into slavery by his command
and gave herself in ways her soul could not withstand

As time went on to his words of love he became untrue
her skin now wore the hues of black and blue

She cried out for help in the silent screams of her soul
heaven heard and cloaked her in a courage camisole

She rose to stand and gave him over to the court’s reprimand
and vowed never again to visit this deadly wasteland

With a redeemed soul her vow she has kept
and remains grateful for the tears wept

She tells her story a song of hope to the broken
that they no longer remain downtrodden

Her tragedy taught her to never trust a smile of magic
instead triumph by always putting faith in Perfect Love authentic
