FREE GIFT

Hey, ya’ll! At the bottom of today’s post, I’m going to let you know about some free stuff I’m giving away to all of you great Man vs. Row subscribers. Now, on to today’s post…

Here’s a writing prompt for you. It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank. You can use one word or several. Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want. The point is to get the creative juices flowing. And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you. Try coming up with at least five things.

“You left my heart as __________ as ____________.”

I’ll give you an example to get you started:

“You left my heart as empty as a Monday morning church.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments. Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating. It’s a family show, after all!

SHOUT OUT!

Thanks to Barney Coulter, Debbie, dju316, Jeff Green, Michael and Mikalyn Hay, Mae Young, Debbie Convoy, Janet Goodman, Matt Martoccio, Joseph Lekkas, Dan Retzlaff, Jerry Childers, Willa Thompson and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #46 (read it here)! Great job!

FREE GIFT

As a way to say “thank you” to all of you who subscribe to Man vs. Row by email, I’m going to give away some cool stuff in July (2014). If you subscribe to MvR, I’ll send you a free report, “10 Things The Pro Knows.” I’ll also send you the guitar/vocal of “Crickets,” which is the title track of Joe Nichols’ current album. You’ll get to hear the song as Joe heard it when he decided to record it. You’ll also receive the lyric file of the song- and this lyric file includes “Baxter’s Boneyard” – all the lines that DIDN’T make it into the song (see if you agree with our choices). It’s something nobody else has seen, and I think it’s pretty cool. But, again, this gift is only for those who subscribe to Man vs. Row by E-MAIL. These gifts will be sent by email, so if I don’t have your email address, I can’t send it to you. God Bless!

  1. You left my heart as torn as a hobo’s shirt. Tattered, in pieces and filled with constant hurt. I keep hearing you tell me goodbye.As I sit in the dark trying not to cry.

  2. You left my heart shattered as sea glass on the shore
    When you told me you didn’t love me anymore
    I lay hear praying that the rain
    Washes away the memory and the pain
    Of watching you walk out that door

  3. You left my heart as dark as coal. Angry from my years you stole. From age twenty to thirty five. All you’ve done is cheat and lie.

    Wasted years because of you
    Lost my swagger and my youth
    I’ll curse your name until I die
    For all the tears you made me cry
    The one thing I know is true
    I’ve wasted years because of you

    Finish it up, Brent.

  4. You left my heart as empty as this bottle of cheap whiskey.
    I can get another bottle, I can’t get another you.

  5. You left my heart as barren as a desert highway
    You left my heart as open as a chapel door
    You left my heart as solemn as a requiem
    You left my heart as warm as summer rain

  6. You left my heart as lonely as a stranded castaway’s, my bank account as empty as a rusty coffee can, my heart as tattered as that worn-out towel I trashed, my soul as broken as an arm in a plaster cast, my faith as strong as that of a man who’s seen The Light

  7. You left my heart as giddy as the first time that I met you.
    Tell me baby could we try and get to how it used to be?

  8. You left my heart as tattered
    As the Star Spangled Banner
    Our words like bullets flying
    On a lovers’ battlefield

    1. You left my heart as tattered
      As the Star Spangled Banner
      Our words like bullets splattered
      On a lovers’ battlefield.

  9. You left my heart as haunting as memories
    You left my heart as fragile as a snowflake
    You left my heart as conflicted as wealth and happiness
    You left my heart as peaceful as a rainbow after rain
    You left my heart as wandering as ships through the Bermuda Triangle
    Bonus…
    You left my heart as curious as next Thursday’s Wordplay

  10. You left my heart as BLUE as A MONTANA SKY
    You left my heart as HAPPY as TWO PEAS IN A POD
    You left my heart as LONESOME as THE FOLSOM PRISON BLUES
    You left my heart as BROKEN as ALL MY SHATTERED DREAMS
    You left my heart as MEMORIES as PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOU
    You left my heart as CARELESSLY as I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU – I think that’s the best one

  11. Geez talk about pressure with using that line 😉

    “You left my heart as broken as our old barn”

    “You left my heart as black as coal”

    “You left my heart as open as wide mouth can”

    “You left my heart as empty as this bottle tonight”

    “You left my heart as fluttery as a monarch butterfly”
