Embrace Or Burn?

Image Source: The Magpie Tales

Sleep eludes me tonight, as I toss and turn on my bed with darkness for company and beads of sweat trickling down my face. Of course, I am excited but fear takes over me too. A new fate awaits me tomorrow, as I wait for the release of my debut film. Just like these moths being attracted to a flame, I am drawn to fame. Tomorrow I shall know if the light embraces me or burns me.


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

  6. Beautifully penned. But have to admit, it does make me nervous to see my frame of mind so lucidly portrayed by someone. My debut novel 'Twists Of Fate ' is going to be out this October. As the wait is nearing its end, I can more than just relate to the lines you have penned. I can actually feel them :)
