This week’s 100 Word Challenge is a photo prompt

Hey you,

I’m sorry for writing to you…but I need to share this photo, this pain, with you.
This morning I woke early, and slipped out of the house.

I intended never to go back to “our” cabin, but today, I needed to be there, to allow myself thoughts of you.

Remember…the heady excitement; the passion; the dreams we shared?

Remember how, within those walls…the world disappeared; nothing mattered; we could be forever?

Today every minute pierced my heart, ticking towards…your wedding.

Our cabin’s still standing.

I was there.

You have a new forever.

I ceased to exist.

Didn’t I?

  1. Stunning passion here Gill! I’m sure there are lots of people who can empathise with these raw emotions. ‘New forever’ – fabulous!

  3. Thank you Julia, it’s always such a compliment when you comment 🙂

  4. Powerful stuff. I love how it develops and esp. the choice to phrases towards the end. Great post!

  5. This is a really moving story Gill. “You have a new forever.” “I ceased to exist.” Such emotion in he contrast of their two situations.

  6. Oh how sad. I understand so well. something in me wants to know she merely wrote this, didn’t send it out. You’ve evoked these emotions so well.

  7. What a moving piece this is- no mean feat in so few words. Loved it. I hope that when she got through the pain, she got mad 😉 Great post.

  8. Having been there myself, I couldn’t have described it better. Genius writing!

  9. Thanks, glad you liked it 🙂

  10. Love how the cabin continues to be “ours”, Robin
