If You’re Reading this YOU are ALIVE

This is a exert from an unfinished story I was writing. Somehow this is the only part of the piece that moves me or that I think is worthy of sharing.

“When your young you think love is the easiest thing to give and receive. As you grow older you learn love is hard to attain and even harder to keep. Love fades, love cracks, love disintegrates. There’s an old adage that says it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. You don’t believe that do you? To love someone so deeply, so passionately and then have that love ripped from the heart of your being, leaving you broken and wounded; Left to patch yourself up with temporary, makeshift relationships. The hole never fully heels and the memories you had together are like bullets shooting out of the darkness hitting you when you least expect it. A sight, a smell, a touch and the pain of loss comes rushing back to you, causing a tsunami of emotion. Collapsing to the floor you weep for your loss, your family’s loss and the world’s loss. Then you pick yourself up out of the pool of tears and continue on, not because you want to, but because you have to, because You are Alive.”

    I like the honesty and feeling of this post. It has authenticity, it’s unexpected, and you can play with it more, I think, to make it progress into a great chapter. All the best and thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you for your words of encouragement, I think I’m going to go back to the story and see what I can do!

    It is definitely better to have tried to love than not tried at all. Even if you make a mistake, you can learn and try again.
