Forever?

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?

  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.
