Heels Over Head



Prompt:  We want you to give us a 33-word example of personification.  Wait.  What?  You forget what that is?  It's the practice of attaching human traits and characteristics with inanimate objects, phenomena and animals (http://literary-devices.com). 


Love marched up one day and smacked Rita May cross-eyed, tripped her up, and knocked her flat on her back,  heels over head, and now won't let her go.

Not that she's complained.

  1. I have always found that I fall head first into love, fast and hard, often losing a shoe. :)

  6. Love can be rough, but still we continue to look for it. Once the injuries from our initial fall have healed, it can be such a beautiful thing :)
