AGOS: Life without Summer

Here’s the 3rd part to A Glimpse Of Summer (AGOS). The 1st and 2nd parts are linked. For this part I used pure narrative with minimal dialogue and descriptions. Although I apologize for the lack of descriptions, it’s been a tough week (no excuses still), so I promise to be back in full gear for the next part.

The day summer left, everything changed. The weather forecast could have been windy with a turbulent storm approaching because that was the atmosphere when the news broke out. Life was never the same for either one of us. I thought I had it bad, but seeing Sam break down when I told him- it crushed me.

We never talked about it- I and Sam, about why Summer left. I was scared of the question and he, the answer. I think Sam knew he was the reason for Summer’s leaving. It was just too coincidental that when he got married she decided to go AWOL. In a way, I was relieved he never brought the topic up.

Each day, I awoke to check the mailbox, hoping against hope I’d see a message from Summer. Days, months passed by and all I got- nothing. With Sam, the question was the same.

“Maybe”, I’d answer back with a lot of doubt. Read more

The Heart Is The Bravest Thing-

The Heart Is The Bravest Thing-

The heart is the bravest thing-
It goes through the greatest tests;
Breaks into pieces.
Fits right back;
Maybe not perfectly,
But enough to still beat.

Time after time-
We try to stop it with pills.
But this heart it keeps on beating;
It never gives up on we,
Even when we do it-
Isn’t that the bravest thing.
