Today’s Prompt: write about finding something.
Today’s twist: if you wrote day four’s post as the first in a series, use this one as the second installment — loosely defined.
This is the second part of Day 4 writing, STUCK IN REVERSE
NOBODY SAID IT WAS EASY, NO ONE EVER SAID IT WOULD BE THIS HARD
Standing in the pitch black, that surrounded her, she realized she has stopped struggling. The light outside her was gone and so was the one within her. She stood there as numbness slowly started to infiltrate her senses. Her body was frozen and her brain was in an overdrive. Questions were hitting her like small drones. How did she loose the light? When did she go far enough to not being able to see? When did she take the wrong turn? Did she not know that she took a wrong turn somewhere along the path? Why did she not know? When did she start moving towards darkness? Why did she do this to herself? She felt herself being surrounded by a deep halo, halo of wrong decisions, regrets, self-doubt and loneliness. A halo darker than the darkness surrounding her.
She wanted to run away or hide. There were no shadows to hide and there was nowhere to run. She wished, she was dead so there won’t be anything to feel, but she was alive. She was alive and aware. She closed her eyes, hoping it would make this go away but only more darkness surrounded her. It didn’t change anything; she was still aware, aware of the fact that she has to do something. She weighed her options, she was stuck in the middle, everything behind had faded away and everything forward was vague but there. She had no other option but to keep on moving.
She mustered up all the energy left inside her and started moving forward. She tried to remember, something they say, something about silver linings. Something about, light at the end of the tunnel. Something about, every good thing comes to an end but so do the bad things. So, she started taking baby steps forward, apparently into nothingness. She moved nonetheless because she didn’t have an option.
Wading through the sea of doubt that surrounded her, almost neck-deep, she saw a flash of light. What was that? A firefly?
yaay! A flash of light.
Let me know what you think?
