55 Words

She looked in the mirror.

“Where did I go?” she whispered. “What happened to that beautiful, intelligent woman I use to be?”

The image returned her stare with the same look that she was feeling. Disappointed confusion.

You’ve got to be kidding, the answering thought persisted. I’m still here. You’ve just got me buried. Alive!

DISCLAIMER: This is a fictional piece for '55 Flash Fiction Friday', where participants are required to tell a story in 55 words. If you give it a go, be sure to go tell g-man.

It's not fiction at all. It's what our minds say to us that rob us of our youth.

Very well said, CC.

Thanks for the visit and the comment on Jaded Heart's Magpie this week.

Love your post and you and I must have been riding the same wavelength...

here's a poem written back in April. Great "crusty" women must think alike. ;-)

Oh, yeah. The image in my mirror frequently says the same thing.

I'm pretty sure any of us with that "mom" badge or the 40+ badge have a time when we feel like this. Really strong stuff....way to go.
