The Visit

The Visit

A Story by Wordwhirl
"

Being with my love...

"
I wake up to a dewy, misty morning. Its still dark outside. And silent.
 I walk out into the comforting silence and breathe in the fresh early morning air. 
 Once. Twice.


 Closing my eyes, I breathe in again. I hold my breath, letting the freshness diffuse into my entire being. And when I could hold it no longer, I breathe out, into the dark silence, letting go of my regrets.


 The natural detox refreshes me, unlike the drugs plaguing my body. And as if in a trance, I start walking. I know where I am headed. And I don't stop myself. The urge to be with my love is too strong to resist. 


 But I am still nervous. I have avoided this for so long that a tinge of guilt starts ebbing at my core. I walk and walk, distracting myself with the beauty of the breaking dawn. 


And when I finally reach the gates, the darkness I took refuge in had dissipated completely. Carefully, I open the gates. I walk in, soaking in the calmness of the place.

 
And I kneel down beside his home. His grave.

Woah, I did not see the ending coming! It’s such a great, beautiful poem. You really have a thing with imagery and story, and the emotions too!

Emotions related to a lost love is something most of the writers I came across here are well acquainted with. I loved your writing, it did touch a string in my heart.

Thank you so much. Glad to hear that:)
This is a very amazing demonstration about how simple straightforward writing can be very powerful in building suspense. The whole way thru, I was dying to know what this was all about. You did a great job of putting us into the narrator's shoes & having us walk those steps. Great use of body language as well as mental ruminations (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Yes, exactly. Thanks for the read:)
Well written Neetha. A good story as well. The twist at the end is very good ... unexpected and I like that.
I could get a good sense of the surroundings and the emotions the writer is conveying. Well done.

2nd line - spelling mistake 'breathe' instead of 'breath' - but it's a minor thing.
