Clear (Part 2)

Clear (Part 2)

A Story by Alisha Martin

part 2


I want to believe that there is real remorse in your voice.

I want it to be a year and a half earlier.

I want to smile again.

But I don't believe, and it's only now, and I can't smile.

"Stop." I whisper. My voice is so weak.

Your hands hold mine tighter.

"Stop." I say again.

You don't move.

"" It's hard to make sentences. It hurts.


I begin to crumble, the wind starts to whisk me away.

I try and pull my hands away, at least I think I do. I can't tell the difference between doing and thinking anymore.

Anyway, my hands don't move.

I bite my lip, feeling the familiar cracked surface.

Oh. No, no no." Your finger-tips are under my eyes again.

You spread the wetness across my cheeks.

I take this opportunity.

I stand up.



and I walk home. Alone. Without you.

I'm kinda confused about what exactly this is about. I understand there is affliction in it, but what kind. The details are good. Just, maybe, clarify what its about and it could be greater than it is now. I'm not saying its not great, Because it is, but i think it has potential to be greater. Great piece.

I like the use of spacing at the end, it exponentially increased the dramatic effect. Also it feels like she's leaving a piece of herself there as she walks away.... might be just me though.

I can actually see little bits of your blowing away in the wind, yet being forced to stay in that spot where you don't know what to do. Could see the imagery and it portrayed your feelings well. Great Job keep writing!
