Unopened Letters (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for L is Letters.

Unopened Letters

“Dear Latika, I wish I could tell you how much I love you.”

I had opened the first two, and didn’t have the heart to open the rest.

I still wonder what might have been, if he had come for me that day.

He knew I loved him too. I had told him so under the old mango tree.

I remember when the car had sped away, taking me and Amma to this new city.

“Rajesh, I shall always love you,” this blind girl had whispered, hoping the breeze would take it to her mute lover.

Liked this? Maybe you can read some of my earlier posts: Stories | for A to Z 2018.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
