Understand (Not!) (#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 U is Understand.

Understand (Not!)

It had been a week, and yet nothing seemed different. He lay in bed, looking at the ceiling. His favorite books lay scattered around him, but he didn’t feel like reading. His favorite songs were near too, but they seemed as disinteresting as anything else.

“You need to get out of this phase, man!”

If only it were as easy as his friends made it out to be. They didn’t understand his depression, but then again, no one really could.

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.
