Chapter 2

A Chapter by Beverly Jane

I love you dad.


Sinking my toes into the damp ground, I stopped to take a deep breath of the cold night air. The wind blew slightly, and all you could hear besides that was slight cricks and cracks. Opening my eyes I continued to walk, more and more trees surrounding me as I entered further into the graveyard. It was strange that, even though I have been here tons of times, the emotions still hit me like a ton of bricks every time I come here.

Sitting myself on the wet ground, I stared at the gravestone that read, ‘David Jones, a husband, a son, a father.’ Tears enter my eyes, and I dig my knees into my chest pressing my face into my hands. “Dad,” I whisper low enough for only my ears to hear. “Why can’t you be here?” the words came out as a sob. “I need you,” I cried.

Suddenly all my emotions were let out, the only time I ever let them out. Here, in the presence of my father, hoping he hears me. Crying into my fists, I rocked myself. Everything around me spun around in a haze, so badly that I had to dig my nails into the ground because I had to hold onto something. I felt the wet dirt under my finger nails, making my hands cold.

I picked my head up looking at the star filled sky. I wondered if my dad was one of those stars, staring down at me. Shinning to give me hope, and to tell me to stop crying. To tell me that he loved me. Retracting my fingernails from the wet ground I wrapped my arms around my waist. “I love you too dad,” my voice shook.

I lay on the wet ground next to the gravestone, staring at it. Rain started to lightly fall then, dampening my skin. I slowly closed my eyes falling into some kind of dark sleep. That part of me sometimes wished, that I wouldn’t wake up from.

But, I always did.

Hello, wow! It's been a while since I have been on this site, it's almost like looking at a time capsule. It's been a while since I've had the same passion that I had back in high school for writing. .. more..
