It’s been a Sunday where nothing is going quite as it should…even trying to get this post up & the blog updated, my internet simply refuses to co-operate…so, I decided a little fiction writing would do my spirit some good. I’m adding to my collection of Ascent from Madness flash fiction pieces below, as a part of the most recent 5 Minute Friday.
The theme this week: SAFE
It’s so strange, how unsettled I am.
I know it just goes with the territory. That’s what they tell me anyway.
But, I mean, I’m old enough now, I should be feeling secure & safe now, right? Now that I’m “getting better”…
Do I even know that word?
I knew that word once…didn’t I?
I honestly don’t know. But, I must have. Though, even in my earliest memories, safety isn’t a theme.
My home. The one I’ve created.
The creativity in my mind.
These things make me feel safe.
Out there – the world? Not so much.
But, I guess I hide it well.
I “fit in.” I “work.”
No, I don’t really think I am…And, I don’t think I ever really was…
One thought on “Safe (Ascent from Madness)”
Hi Candice! I’m your neighbour this week and I think it’s the first time I’ve visited. What an interesting twist on the exercise… I loved how you instantly took me into the storyline.
This: “I’m old enough now, I should be feeling secure & safe now, right?” No kidding. Safety has nothing to do with age.
Have a great week!
