I never meant it…

When I said I wanted to be alone…

Yet here I am in the gut of the earth, bounded by time-eaten stones.

I told you.

Though in different words. Like “I can’t go on anymore.” Or “I feel so hopeless.”

Even in bed as you shuddered on top of me… my spasmodic moans laced with stifled pleas. Help me.

If you listened, you would’ve heard how my slippers sighed sadly against stone.

Yet… I was alone…

When I embraced death and it embraced me…

When I sobbed and my head throbbed… and the darkness took me.

  1. Dear Kz,

    You put a lot of thought, pain and emotion into your story. I am glad to be able to read it as the loneliness you tapped into resonates in me. A moving piece. Very good job.



    • thank you. i wasn’t thinking much when i wrote this, really. i was just pretty down the other day and needed release. i almost didn’t post for FF this week. but i’m glad i was able to express the emotion. 🙂

    • hi Hefty Journie. i’m not sure yet. probably not. i’ not too familiar with guest posts, haven’t done one before. but it’s two things really, first, i barely have time to post 2x a week and second, right now, i’d like to keep this blog personal, my own one woman show ^^ lol hope u understand 🙂

    • my fancy way of describing my headache. lol anyway, it was too vague. i did remove the bob word entirely. it was pretty odd. thanks 🙂

  2. I particularly enjoyed the line, “If you listened, you would’ve heard how my slippers sighed sadly against stone.” You did a great job conveying the despair of this individual. Well done.

  3. You never cease to amaze me with your writing expertise. All those cold, hard surfaces depicted in the photo bring about morbid thoughts. It sounded like she’d suffered so much.
