Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction. If you’d like to share your writing with the community, please indulge me and tag your post with #p0eticlicense and/or #lightm0tifs, and of course link back if you wish. I will try to visit everyone who participates. 🙂
This week’s theme is gone and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “500 Miles” covered by many artists:
If you miss the train I’m on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow
A hundred miles

Penny told him to wait while she ran home to get her ticket which was in the pocket of her other coat. They were headed to Las Vegas to start a new career. She left her guitar with him while she ran quickly back to the apartment.
As she shut the door she heard a train whistle. She hurried. She expected him to be waiting at the station for her. They could trade in the tickets for new ones for a later trip.
As she got to the station she saw it was not only empty, her quitar was sitting propped against the building. He was gone.Tears flowed down her cheeks. He might as well have slapped her.
