Faded Page Of Life

Copyright – Kelly Sands

There was sunlight when you left and now the clouds above have given up too, just like me. Sometimes I wonder if I gave up too soon and then I think maybe not, since the decision to leave was solely yours. You wanted to go out and explore a new world, of which I clearly wasn't a part of, atleast that's what you proved when you left me with just a note. Today it doesn't hurt so much, as I have come to realize that I am worth more. Your name lies faded in some old page of my life.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Pages' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 11th July.

  4. the writer is obviously coming to terms with the breakup - well written.
    A small point - you wrote 'of which I clearly wasn't a part off'' - which is one 'off' too many! :)

  19. Nice piece... but what went wrong that she only left a note? was she that immature - and did you not wish to see who she really was? It is not that deep a wound. Let the clouds be your guide as sunny days return anew.

    I'm feeling a little philosophical.... got any m and m's? Randy

    1. You probably did not get the story right. He left her without telling her anything. He just left a goodbye note, it sure is a deep wound.

  20. Soumya, Well written. At least she's now put that terrible hurt in her past and is moving on which is a sign she's healed. Good for her. Good story and well done. :) ---Susan
