Grief

Love was no longer the reason they were together, rather, it was the fear of impending grief that hindered their separation.

What could be worse than tears welling up within you, and yet not finding a vent to express its gratitude to the heart that often melted in memories past?

"Let's just carry on, the way it is, 'cause breaking up would be all the more painful," he said, and she agreed.

Years passed by in monosyllables, dragging along summer, spring, autumn and winter, their beauty lost in the chasm of a deceptive future.

When love ceases to be a passion, and finds itself lost in the cacophony of mundane chores, the cross - roads of fiction confront reality, and often we are posed with the question, the answer to which can never be definite - "Is it the time to let go?"


This Micro-fiction is shared with Five Sentence Fiction - Grief.

  2. May be you do not want to let go.....because you are addicted to each other....it has become a routine.....when you think of separation your thoughts cease....you can think no more.....the passion always wanes...it cannot stay forever...but you cannot let go because somewhere you are used to...addicted to that person...cannot live without this person....is it not love then....yes it is love living disguised in day to day world......beautifully written..

  5. When we age, our hair may lose it's luster, it's shine. It can become dull and gray. But we have hair dye for that! Thank goodness! Lol! Marriages can also lose their luster and their shine but sometimes you have to keep polishing the stone before you can see your reflection in it and sometimes, it's only worth what you put in it.
