Searching

Late entry this week, but I didn’t want to miss a week of Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word piece of fiction based on the photo prompt provided. Get yourselves over and join the addiction.

On any street in any town, through a sea of crowded faces, I would know if you were there. Just a reflection in a window or a scent that floats on by, a voice within the whispers or a shadow against the wall, but I’d know that you were there.

I’d see your smile in children, your laughter in their eyes. I’d hear your voice in strangers and I’d listen just a while. I’d see your touch in lovers, holding hands across a table. I’d stop and watch them smiling and I’d feel that you were there.

I still see you everywhere.

  1. I found that quite bitter sweet, the narrator seems to have lost someone dear to them? It’s lovely that they still feel them close, though.
    I liked the poetic quality of the writing.
