Welcome to Fiction Friday.
This week I am offering what looks very much like a poem. Enjoy and visit next week to see what I come up with, next.
It is the single tear
Batted away as she gathers up her homework.
It is the little boy pulling up his bed-clothes
As his parents shout in the other room.
It is the man who holds his woman’s hand
As the IV drips into her arm.
It is the couple
Joined together at their first date place signing the divorce papers.
It is the blond girl
Tugging at her sleeves and skipping gym class to hide her bruises.
It is the mother who looks away
When her angry son takes the car keys.
The sound of silence.
