The days that came after

Well folks it’s Friday again, another week just zipped by! I don’t even remember some of the days happening the week went so fast!!

This weeks creative writing is a bit sad I am afraid. I don’t know where it came from but I must have something on my mind, not sure what though. It must be hidden deep somewhere, but I am glad I got it out in this piece of writing.

T h e   d a y s   t h a t   c a m e   a f t e r

You were taken from me, and the days that came after I couldn’t bear to exist; so I slept instead. Without you I didn’t want to see, I didn’t want to hear, I didn’t want to breathe because you couldn’t.

I felt angry at the sun for shining, at the sky for being such a perfect blue and at the birds for singing their sweet songs.

Without you there I was empty. I blamed myself, as if somehow I deserved the agonising pain of this life without light. I was in a dark place in the days that came after.

Then one morning I woke to a bright shaft of sunlight piercing through the gap in the curtains and I felt you near. I closed my eyes and heard your laughter and that’s when I cried. All the sadness stuck fast, right inside me, until that moment.

After I cried I remembered all the good things; I still felt so very sad but now with a warm blanket of memories wrapped round me I laid my head down and found some peace.

Wishing you a  l o v e l y  weekend x x

  1. Oh bless you I bet you are shattered! Hope you get a break this weekend : ) Thanks so much for your comments about this week’s piece. I am really enjoying this creative writing, I think it’s becoming a little cathartic! Take care J x x

  2. Sad but beautiful too. It’s a bit mad here this week (did you guess? no blog posts!) so I’m just going from one thing to another. Looking forward to it calming down a bit, really hope that its not going to carry on like this until Christmas!! Hope your week is calm 😉

Some weeks are a bit like that aren’t they!! Thanks for your comment on the writing. Take care and even if it is a bit hectic again try to find a bit of quiet time…don’t burn out!! : ) xx
