Flash Fiction No. 78

#flashfiction

The Love of Tragedy & Beauty

Serrated metal rakes bone. I grit my teeth, swallowing down the pain and closing my eyes real tight. The bone vibrations reach right into my shoulder blades as I grip the knife harder. Blood glistens on steel.

I am sweating, but I must complete my task.

Breath heaving in my chest, I shake off the pause and keep sawing until I almost pass out. Then I realise I must stop again. I must breathe. I must let the oxygen reach my near-mortal lungs.

A Fiery Throng Of Muted Angels

Giving love but getting nothing back…

I think that song is rather beautiful. I’m listening to the Birdy version, of course, instead of the original Cherry Ghost version, but I shall probably check that one out too. I also have a dog cuddled tightly to my chest.

Terrible picture, but there you go.

I am so tired this week. The two weeks Easter holidays have not allowed me to rest up at all. In fact, they were more stressful than being at work.

Aut Vincere Aut Mori

The funeral was yesterday. It was a beautiful service. There was laughing and there was crying – a true celebration of a life.

I’m not sure what else to write this week as just a journal entry. I’m sure there’s so much I could tell you, but there’s so much that I don’t know how to say. I don’t really want to talk about the funeral.

Maybe it’s because it’s too soon or maybe it’s because there are certain things I need to internalise before I can really express anything about it.

Everybody’s Fine

And nobody is.

That seems to be the theme right now. In case you didn’t read the beginning of the last post, a friend died on Sunday evening. He was a good guy and I went to school with him. Poor sod even took care of me when I was paralytic and distraught at one point in the past few months. I’ll never forget him for that. I really needed that half an hour or so of company and he wasn’t about to let me go anywhere on my own until I’d calmed down.


[And we all know he’ll be hitting on the angels by now.]

I hate thinking of that night for how distressed I was. It was probably one of my lowest points in this whole shitty charade (excuse my language).

7th #SatSunTails Winners!

I’d first like to start off by apologising for the lateness of this judging, but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to postpone judging. A friend from school and a great man passed away rather unexpectedly. & so (on a rather more sombre note than usual) we have our #SatSunTails winner.
