Friday Flash – Shattered

Felicity at The Dark Chronicles – http://felicityjohns.com/2015/03/27/friday-flash-shattered/ has a wonderful Friday prompt called Friday Flash.  This week’s challenge is called ‘Shattered’.

This is a prompt – to paraphrase Felicity – this is not of ‘word’ only, but of thoughts. It’s feeling the word you see, writing what you feel and revealing a “break” – whether the “break is mental, physical or meta-physical…the point of no return.”  When I saw Felicity’s post, I knew exactly what she meant and knew I had written a piece which, in my humble opinion, describes all of the above.  Incidentally, it is the first poem I ever wrote (not counting high school) and posted on WordPress.

 ~ Numb ~

I want to feel numb – feel nothing.

Feel no love – when it goes away, I do not have to feel so bad.

Feel no hate.

Feel no guilt – for feeling no love or hate.

Feel no hurt or pain – just a nothing existence.

Numb – be dead.  No feelings of anything, just nothingness.

 

A brief explanation:

This piece was originally written in October of 2010.  I shortly, thereafter, revised it as a result of a derogatory comment made by the person who encouraged me to start blogging in the first place.  As a result of his comments (he was not Bill), I buckled under the pressure and lightened it up a bit. I was uncomfortable with this decision, so I posted it – again – word for original word in March 2012 – this being four days before Bill passed away.  What came next was a nightmare I could never have foreseen.  A long story made short:  when I found Bill’s lifeless body, I went into shock.  My neighbor, who had read this piece online and understood my emotional state at the time, was worried for my physical well-being and I was sent, against my will, to the hospital and kept for the day, under ‘supervision’.  I will continue no further on this matter, except to say I had never felt so blindsided, violated, helpless, humiliated, scared, distraught and completely – totally – alone in all of my life.

I did re-post this one more time in February of 2013, after I began writing again.  It was also a few weeks before what was an extremely difficult one year anniversary of Bill’s passing and I had fallen as emotionally low as a person could go.

Love in Ten Sentences x Two!

Yes, I have been challenged again….. twice.  I thought about declining or sitting one of them out, but this morning a flood of 4 word sentences came barreling out of my brain.  I made it to 16 without realizing I had 16, so I thought would I squeeze out 4 more.  They are not mind-blowing or anything…they just are what they are, which is what love is or what I believe love to be…make sense??

A recap of the traditional rules:  10 sentences, 4 words each with one of the words being ‘love’.  When all is said and done, add a favorite quote about love or using the word love….

One more thing – my awesome challengers are:

A Labor of Love

love can be painful.

love can soothe pain.

love can bring tears.

love can bring laughter.

love can be feared.

love can be fearless.

love can bring sadness.

love can bring joy.

love can be sneaky.

love can be obvious.

love can be difficult.

love is being human.

post it

Anytime my boys tell me they love me, I am reading my favorite quote about love.

 I am supposed to nominate 10 blogs to step up to the plate

~ however ~

I am going to leave this to be an open forum.

Whether you feel up to the challenge or prefer to sit back and reflect…I say…

Knock your socks off!
