She Is Me

Time again for ‘Friday Fictioneers’. A weekly 100 word fiction prompt hosted by the ever creative Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. I’m addicted and proud, get yourselves over and read the others, even better, join yourself. A bit like turnip, how do you know you don’t like it if you never give it a try.

She is the other part of me, theΒ light to my dark. Like the wind that whistles through the trees, she is my freedom and my release. While she dances in the sunlight, I wither and fall. While she walks through the barriers, I turn and I run. She is the colour beyond the grey walls, the grass that is greener and the dreams that evolve.

She holds out her hand and bids me come over, but the fear I carry is too strong to ignore. I feel the gap widening, the mist closing in. Maybe tomorrow I’ll walk through the door.

  1. That’s beautiful, Helen. Really, really beautiful. I can see this recited by a groom about his bride on their wedding day.

    Five gold smiles! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. aloha Helen. i like the cadence in your writing here. and the world-sense we all face in one way or another.

    ps. i have to say thank you as well. as a result of seeing your post, i found Friday Fictioneers. into the water i plunge. fun. aloha.

  3. Beautifully written. I hope he takes the plunge and crosses. On the other hand, the dark side of me saw her as his lost love, passed away, and he’s trying to gather the courage to end it to be with her.

    • I actually wrote it as being someone’s subconscious, not necessarily sure if male or female. It’s funny that others see a partner or someone lost. It’s good that it ho it reads is determined by the reader πŸ™‚
