Ermilia’s Picture it & write (Sunday 28 April 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.
He needed to say farewell, but was this the right way to do it?
She had promised so much. She said she adored him.
This had taken its toll; he didn’t know what it was to be loved. It had scared him; it had turned his life upside-down.
He had taken her at face value; what a fool he had been.
He thought long and hard as he vacantly looked into the blue sky. What would it matter if he was not here? What difference would it make if he no longer lived? Who would care? Who would worry? What would it matter?
A deep breath engulfed his lungs.
He may care; if he accepted he’d been duped. Surely this had happened to many. Surely this was an obstacle that many must endure. Surely no-one ‘gets it easy’ in the name of love.
Surely; surely he could go on.
