Finding Closure

PHOTO PROMPT – © C. Hase

I took a deep breath and walked down the sandy path, slowly and completely aware of what lay ahead. I have been through so much over the past few years that I needed some time off, just for myself. I know that a heart break is not the end of the world, but I wanted time to mourn, cry, recuperate and let go. I wanted to find myself again and fall in love with her. This solo vacation would give me the much needed closure, so that I can head back with head held high and start a fresh life.

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

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 5th June 2015.

  2. "I wanted to find myself again and fall in love with her"

    This should be the mantra of everyone mourning a heartbreak. Such confidence is the key to move on in life.

  4. Dear Soumya,

    It's always good to take time away. In our fast paced world there isn't enough time taken to rest and regroup. Your story is a beautiful illustration of just that.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
