Free Write Friday with Kellie Elmore.
Time and place scenario.
You suddenly find yourself standing alone on an unknown sidewalk in an unknown place. It’s night and snowing and the only other person around is walking away from you….
I’ve been here before
In this place
A back turned.
A swell of surprise
How could you leave me?
A promise made;
A promise broken.
Hollow. Forsaken. Bewildered.
I bend to my own
Survival mode kicks in.
I’ll find my way.
What an odd weekend of challenges. A triple whammy of emotionally challenging scenarios … at least or me.
First a Daily Prompt highlighting the “Twilight Zone.”
Then a Weekly Photo Challenge on the subject of “Abandoned.”
And now this.
All topics that hover at a rather deep, and uncomfortable, level for me.
In my blog Eyes to Heart I tackled the subject of “abandoned” as far as I dare take it.
A couple of days ago in this blog I started writing about the “Twilight Zone” but couldn’t finish. Maybe I will as the week (or year) progresses and I can find a way to reconcile the many heavy themes that popped out of the ether and onto the page.
With this free writing challenge it appears the bewilderment of being abandoned and standing in that twilight zone have come to the fore.
Thanks for visiting,
