Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
A bitter taste
I turn from the window. There is nothing outside to catch my attention
The food on the table holds no interest for me. I can’t bear to think of lifting the glass of wine to my lips.
I clutch the chair, frustrated by my inability to pick up the pieces and move on. I wonder if I will ever learn to tell the difference between reality and make-believe, truth and lies.
Perhaps the day may come when I will find that I can live a better life without you. At this moment, though, that day seems so very far away.
