Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
sometimes it seems it might be, especially when you are always running from something...
This is really cool!
Can hear true desperation in her thoughts. Somber and beautiful.
That picture is incredible!I've dealt with suicide ideation for most of my life. For those who don't know, ideation does not mean that a person is actually planning to commit suicide, although sometimes there can be both. In my case it means that when life gets too hard, suicide sounds like a better option and I think about it a lot, but I wouldn't actually do it because there are too many people depending on me.Anyway, that's what your words make me think of because I feel that way, more of the time than I care to realize.
Helena, yes, I couldn't believe that art when I was looking! I understand and live with ideation too. One day it would be nice not to think about it.
Thank you, Brian, Mama Z, and Angela!
Wicked cool photo to go with a nice slice of flash!

Thank you, Ann, Scott and Anna. Appreciate your visits and comments. Eye issues...couldn't think to write much more. But sounds like it worked :)
Intensity taken to the nth degree. Loved it!
Wow; such a powerful point put across in such a short piece; the desperation is vivid. I love the pic too. http://40somethingundomesticateddevil.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/5-sentence-fiction-flight-part-5-zoe-as.html
Intense and direct. I also understand the emotion. Beautiful.
A poignant portrayal of intense emotions. The picture sums it all up.Barbara @ www.allmylivesnow.com
This makes me wonder what she wanted to get away from. Well done!
How very sad to be in such a place where death seems preferable over life. You conveyed much emotion in these few words. http://injaynesworld.blogspot.com/2013/07/injaynesworld-its-nature-of-flight.html
Powerful emotion. Makes me want to know more about her.
Hello Maggie!Glad to meet you!Such a pressing whirl; thoughts gain prominence over reality; fear takes control and everything seems to sink into death!You touch some secret chord in my soul; I do understand the mortal need of peace!Incredible real in so many words!
I am so behind in responding to comments and reading through these...thank you all so very much for providing such reflection to my words! Liam, your comment is written as a work of art. Am awed by it.
Love the conciseness of this. Can really feel her exhaustion.
