Writing 101 – Day Four

Today’s assignment: ‘Write about a loss’ – something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more.

I’ve decide that I will write something more abstract…not really a personal experience, more the feeling of loss transferred into a short story:)

Love makes the time pass, but time makes the love pass

” It was very early in the morning…the sun was nowhere to be found as the dark grey clouds covered everything like a heavy uncomfortable blanket.

He felt tired…so tired; he spent the whole night awake, analysing everything that happened, every word, every gesture…

What was the reason?

How was all worth it?

Questions to which he had no answers, at least not now.

Life it’s funny sometimes…you might think you know what you want but in the end you’ll get what you need…it takes a while to realise what’s best, but loss it’s not always a bad thing.

Deep, somewhere in his heart, he knew that they would never have a future…”distance can slowly wipe away even the strongest of feelings”, they say.

But the truth is…that wasn’t the reason he lost her; what they felt for each other once, might have been just a child’s notion of love.. but with time we can grow apart, even change slightly, we look at the world differently…we realise that what we thought we want it’s not what we need!

Note from the author:

I really learned something today…it’s not that easy to talk about loss but there are different perspectives of it, change it’s one way to lose, but losing something means you’re gaining another!

    1. Promise I’ll make it a three piece story…which I didn’t mean to do initially but I do appreciate the feedback and the interest…thank you so much:)


  1. Your post is very interesting. I agree with you, today I learned something about me, about my capacity to express my feelings. It’s not easy to talk (or write) about a loss.
