The Fireworks Show

Following my poetry collection theme, a love story, for the Brit Writers Award, I had to have a fireworks show. The boy and girl must fall out before the end. This seemed simple enough. However, my heroine didn’t have a reason to mistrust what she was feeling and my hero didn’t have a purpose to walk away.  Once I’d written the first poem in the collection, The Wounds of Another’s Blade, I was able to complete The Fireworks Show. The big fight at the end where both parties call it a day and walk away from there relationship.
