TITLE: Only One Left
WORD COUNT: 100

I love to punish myself because I learn how to be strong from it. The sun is kissing my skin and I gladly welcome it. I touch my head and find nothing left on it.

Three chairs, forming a triangle, and two are already vacant.

I hate them; both of them, honestly. They gave up as if they ran thousands of miles. They told me that they would always be with me. They lied.

I look above and the skies look beautiful. I wish I can see them up there, but I should not hurry. Soon, I’ll be joining them.

  1. Dear Matthew,

    Wow. You are up and on it. His head is empty? I’m not sure what you mean by that. This sounds like someone who’s dealing with abandonment issues. Tough thing.

    Grammatical note: Third sentence- two ARE already empty.

    Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    1. Thank you very much, Ms. Rochelle. In the head part, I meant to express his loss of hair (due to cancer, my main reason). I agree with you in abandonment.

      I apologize for that. I am careless at times, and I hope I will be able to fix it soon!

      Thank you very much and God Bless you.

  2. Intriguing story. The part “I touch my head and find nothing left in it.” took me into completely different direction, it seems I see aliens in all possible and impossible places. I was wondering if “I touch my head and find nothing left on it.” would clarify things more, considering he is a cancer patient that lost his head. Just my two cents, feel free to ignore it.

    1. Greetings! Thank you very much for your words. What I meant in the “I touch my head” part was about his hair loss due to cancer. Still, thank you as you have decided to want clarifications. God bless you!
