She came by today, the message on the door says.
She was wondering whether you had her scarf.
She didn't want to call you, it seems to say.
She worried that would give you false hope.

It was a different scene, that night,
(Just three weeks ago, but it feels a lifetime!)
When she came up to you in the hotel bar.
She didn't know you, but she liked you then,
Liked you enough to let your transparent flattery get the best of her
And get the best from her in your bed.

She left it there then, the scarf she had been wearing.
It was still there in the morning when you woke up and she had gone.
You kept it on your bookshelf against the time when she would call.
But she didn't call, and as the weeks melt away you know the scarf is all you will remember of her.
Pity you weren't here when she came by, said the note, you could have seen her face.
But all you will ever remember now is she wore paisley.
The prompt for this came from a question on Yahoo answers.

Shush. You stop that right now. You can draw whatever you want. (Do you still have those TS Eliot ones, by the way? Just curious.)

No, I love them, but I can't draw them because I don't like drawing things I won't do well at *sobs grossly*.

But you will do well. Has everyone not told you? Artists are always the last people to like their own work. Everyone else lurves it.

Mine sucks though, can't imagine anyone wanting to draw any of it.

They aren't really characters...
I guess she's the pretty, slightly-past-her-prime-but-not-too-old perennial barhopper and the narrator's a bit confused as to why it didn't work out.

All of the things. Your mind is brilliant.

My mind is too easily bored. But since you want to draw things, give me some phrases and I'll write you stuff from them that you then might want to draw yourself. I have no inspiration.

"His idea of beauty was a red head, eleven shots of burbon, and six lime wedges,"

Look up things that happened in 1872, make story out of it.

Google sad songs about love/pumpkins/stockings and expand on it.

One words prompts: cheesecake, stripes, flatscreens, gramophone, sprinkles, dimwitted, scarf, frozen solid, reckless abandon, confusion, pecan pie, "Pa, we have a lot of land, we could sell some,", horses, Raining Men - Bette Midler, frosting, pathetique, antisympatique, Algernon, Return to Cranford, the actor Tom Hiddleston (:| do one on him, I'd cry), and loosing wisdom teeth.
