The Two Women in my Life #FridayReflections

September 08, 2017

I reach for her but stay my hand as she shakes her head.
"Will we ever be together?" I ask hopefully.
I know the woman in crimson too yearns to be with me again but she needs to be sure that it will just be the two of us. She points to the woman in black clinging onto my arm.
"Divorce her and I will come."
Her eyes water as I hesitate and she turns away.
"You know where to find me." She whispers before disappearing into the darkness.

Six winters have passed but True Love's crimson plea still haunts me. I reach out once more, hoping she will be there. But icy fingers greet my own and my heart turns to lead as a familiar face appears to dissipate my loneliness.
The woman who never leaves my side.
The woman in black.
Lady Past.

  1. Difficult to go on the path we really want to when there's a heavy past holding us back. Lovely story.

  3. This was really deep. A dilemma of this kind always tears a person apart

  4. The women who never leaves my side..... this side has to be buried to enjoy and live with the white lady i.e. the present.

  7. Too true - few of us can divorce our pasts. We cling to the heavy luggage for dear life.

    1. And that invariably destroys us. Stops us from being the best we could have been.

  8. You can divorce an individual but not the memories or feelings. Very nice doctor. Thanks for linking up with #FridayFotoFiction

  14. The baggage from the past always leaves scars in some way. I hope that in spite of Lady Past, you can find True Love :) Thanks for linking up

  15. This is my third time I came across 100 words story. And Everytime it surprised me how you all can write such a crisp story with just few words. Those two words Lady Past described the whole plot.i felt as if I am reading a plot from a movie which is about to release. Very well done.
