The View from the Window


Every day it feels like I fail a little more at something that should be easy.

But then she smiles and the world becomes less frightening.

If only she knew what strength she carries in a throwaway gesture.

The power to save a life.

Turning from my thoughts, I carefully place the photos back into my journal. Happy in the knowledge they are safe, nestled within the soft, cream pages. The days go by, I watch her fall in love, marry and leave our small town. Never to know the power she wielded.

In the end, I chose the gun.



After NaNoWriMo I realised that I really enjoyed the world of Flash Fiction so I’m sharing a few pieces on my blog.

I hope you all enjoy, feel free to leave comments below.
