Black and White

Black and White

A Story by Minyonka
"

A personal narrative written using a black and white motif.

"

A world of light was the world in which we met. The white sea of purity spilled our words for each other. He'd examine my work, a perceived chuckle on his lips, and tell me his thoughts. He loved my words; my alternate persona. He'd send me his work, for review, for words of encouragement, for critizism. Only silence could be found as I forced away the sounds of the television. Only he was my focus.

 

A world of darkness is where we talked. An ocean of black portrayed red words of truth. More smiles, more tears were displayed between us. I needed a prayer, he answered. He needed a shoulder, I answered. The clicking of keys was the only sound that penetrated the bubble of silence I'd engulfed myself in.

 

The promise we'd made to each other bound us together. 'See the light in the darkness,' we had said. Never give up hope. I'd made a personal reminder for myself, to always wear when times were hard. White and black, just like our worlds. He'd found a reminder of his own, to always wear. Black and white, light and dark. The foundation of my most trusted companion, stemmed from a mutual love for black print on a white computer screen.

This is my first time ever doing a personal narrative, so I would very much appreciate it if you were honest with me (even brutally so, if you must). I hope this turns out well.

A very unique piece of writing. I can safely say I've never come across a work of prose such as this. It has a nice flow, in that you want to find out what you're going to say about the world of darkness once you've mentioned the world of light. It would have been even nicer if you included something about how we humans, the fragile mortals, live in worlds of gray rather than anything specific, such as black and/or white. Rarely is anything specifically black or white, because it's very opinionated. For example, to one person, murder might seem something in the world of darkness, whereas to someone else, it might seem something in the world of light.

However, at the end of the narrative, you kind of summed it all up with how you infused the concept of black writing on a white computer screen. Very beautiful indeed.
