Pain of Reality

The glowing light from the sun above me shined upon my invisible spirit. Everything around me appeared to be gone, and all that remained looked dead to me.

My family lost in another world that was impossible to contact them to. All the small tales that were told to me are just tales. Childish stories for only the mortals to feed from.


But why did it all have to end this way? Why couldn’t those small fantasies of a god be real? What about a perfect paradise where everything is glamorous? My eyes widened from the truth that I already knew, always knew. It was just reality.


The image of everything that happened kept coming back in my mind. Like a lost puppy that wouldn’t stop following you. Exactly what I knew what was happening to me.


A lost puppy that followed life as it went, but could never stay away from the thoughts that happened that night. Like that bullet that hit me through the head, ending the pain all together.


The pain of being stabbed multiple times around the body, strangled till you choked. The memories always came back though. My body covered with the remaining blood that always brought them back when I looked at them.


The area around me gave of absolutely no sound as I brushed my feet through the leaves and grass as my body walked through anything that I came in contact with.


As if I never existed anymore. Perhaps I don’t really exist though, and all this around me is just one big lie. How about the ruined homes that got destroyed?


Perhaps the damaged vehicles that rest on the road right beside me? Is any of this just a lie? Has everything been just a lie the second I fell into the hands of death?


The author's comments:
Author's note: As you have finished reading this exteremly short story of mine. I hope that you enjoyed it.

There is more that I might do with the short story in the future. Some more editing will be done if I ever attempt to stretch into perhaps a novel. Continue the tale of a young girl who died, and what exactly happened.

There is nothing that really "inspired" me to write this out. It was first just a thought that same floating into my mind that I soon felt that it needed to be written.

As I said before. I hope you enjoy it. All constructive commentary is accepted and much requested from all of you.

Please take your time to share your thoughts about the story, and as always, have a nice day.

I don't think that you can take things off of this website.  I think it is a once it's published, there is no going back type of deal.  Good piece, by the way.  Very descriptive.

Thanks for the advice in your comment. This was something I wrote QUITE a while ago. Its been a while since I've been on this website, for sorry for the late reply.

Anyhow, its great to see someone likes what I wrote. I was wondering though if you knew how to take stuff off this website. I hope to do so with this story since I wish to work on it without being on the internet anymore. Any idea?

Ooh, first to comment yay! Haha, anyway, I think this isa really good idea. Hmm how shall I put it. Okay, so I don't really know how you speak, but the story felt kind of formal-ish I guess is the word. If that's how you talk, wonderful, I wish I had such eloquence. If not, you might want to make it more your voice-ish. The other thing, sometimes sentences confused me a bit. i.e. "The area around me gave of asolutely no sound...". It might be my own fault for just being ignorant of such style, but if not it sounds a bit awkward. Really that was all I could find. Great start! Truly, it was wonderful. Please comment on my work as well. Thanks so much. <3, Mikki-bug
