Ermilia’s Picture it & write (Sunday 17 March 2013)
Once again, here is my offering to ‘Picture it & write’ hosted by Ermilia (Ermisenda and Eliabeth) who invite others to join them by writing a fictional story or poem to accompany an image presented on their blog.
This was how she saw life; as if through a lens covered with lost memories and dreams.
It had been a difficult few years.
The loss of sight, physical and mental had taken its toll.
When would she regain it; she didn’t know. Possibly her visual sight would never return to normal. However, she hoped one day she may experience the joy of mental sight once more.
The accident had been horrific. He passed, she lived.
Huh, she thought; she lived! If this was life, then she was living.
No more tears; her eyes were no longer capable. No more love; her heart now bled, unable to love.
The doctor advised. “You may never regain full sight, I’m sorry.”
Upon reflection she thought physical sight meant little, now that he was no longer in view.
Mentally, she knew life would never be the same.
