Five Sentence Fiction: Letters

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction. PS: I found my inspiration while looking on Wikipedia about Rose Wilder Lane (daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder) about she gave birth to a son, but the facts about the birth and how he died haven’t been cleared. So while I continued to read on, I found I could use that in some way as well to this week’s word prompt. So I hope you enjoy!

This week: LETTERS

The sadness still set in my mind, as the tears still poured out of my eyes.

As days continued to come, the love of my husband and I once created grew apart.

He no longer looked me in the eyes, nor touched me when we slept.

It was only a month ago and I am still grieving a loss of a life that I cherished for only a matter of time.

I sit in this dark room writing this last love letter as I have no more to give to this very life that has taken so much from me.

  1. Hi Meghan

    Interesting point of divorce you’ve created here. While on one hand she’s glad this guy is now totally out of her life, on the other hand she’s missing all the wonderful intimate times they’d once shared. Is this the image you wanted us to get, or have I gone and read too much into what you’ve written?

    Anyway, next week my OH is having a birthday we’re celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Would love to hear your feedback on my endeavor for this week.


    1. Hi Robin!!

      Well I can see how you got that with my little story, but I was going with a loss of a child. I liked how you thought it was about a divorce though because it could really work, so you’re fine! And awesome! Congrats! 😀
