I’ve driven through the mountains in search of you; I’ve crossed boundaries – on land and sea – in pursuit of you.
I’ve seen what you can do to people – build them into more than humans and then cause them to crumble. You’re as dangerous as fire, a threat graver than death but you’re salvation, a fate better than heaven.
I remember the first and the only time we brushed shoulders – in a crowded train, in my crowded brain, you entered and left a lasting impression. I remember the moment our eyes met and I’d realised how inept I was at hiding my feelings.
That day, that time, that moment, I was no longer safe – from feeling incapable at life, having lived so many years in your absence. At the same time, your sheer presence in my life, in my brain and in my heart – harmonized all my thoughts, my dreams and my future and merged them with yours.
I was very lucky that I stumbled upon Sonya’s Three Line Tales the moment I got onto WordPress. I had this odd feeling I wasn’t going to get any writing done today until I saw this photo prompt attached to a tiny little update post. Suddenly, in a matter of seconds, the entire scene played itself in my head. I could see the characters on that bridge in a made-up town in a made-up country living their entire lives, giving me the responsibility to write their story. This is why I love writing!
The Bridge of Love
It was here that we first met; it was here that our eyes, our minds, our souls – everything – merged into one.
It wasn’t here.
The moment your breath filled my lungs and my heart pumped your blood, it wasn’t here; we weren’t here; we weren’t anywhere and we were everywhere.
Now that 99% of Instagram users have shifted to Snapchat, it feels like the right time to get back onto the previously popular photo app. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to write a ‘Tuesday Short’ on Friday. Hope you guys like it!
This is slowly becoming one of my favourite challenges – Ben at A Hopelessly Wandering Mind gives us only one word as a prompt every week, and the participants have only six words to write their own story. This week’s theme is Purgatory.
If you missed last week’s challenge, I (and 60+ others, which is a phenomenal response for week #1) wrote on the theme of loss. I recommend that you visit Ben’s blog and check out the other entries, especially last week’s winners – those were some fantastic six word stories. This week, the theme is passion. Hope you like my entry; please feel free to post your thoughts in the comment section below.
Even He couldn’t keep them apart.
