On Writing, Writing Prompts

Writing Prompt 19

My favorite Led Zeppelin song, “Tangerine,” from the band’s album III, is a song about lost love. Whenever I hear the lines

I was her love
She was my queen
And now a thousand years in between

I imagine some epic love story and subsequent heartbreak spanning lifetimes. It might be a sci-fi story, it might be a ghost story or some tale of horror, it might be a tale supernatural in nature. I haven’t figured out exactly what it means for me yet, but today’s your chance. Let the lyrics inspire you (listen to the full song if you like). What does it speak to you?
