Friday Fictioneers: Unending

Doorways open into rooms leading to doors leading to rooms and blue skies and nightmares and futures we never even imagined and could have never seen coming.

How can I go on without you?

Years ago, my friend, you promised to share the possibilities, the dream, this life with me, whatever may come.

Now, you say no more, it is all too much, all the twists and turns this life has taken. We can never go back, you know, I am here for you, now and always.

Continue on. Let us enter forever and a life unending.


This is my entry for Friday Fictioneers, where every week we get together and write 100-word stories. Okay so the past few weeks I’ve been under the weather and generally grumpy. =D I’m actually still a bit fuzzy around the edges but hopefully rebounding!

  1. I’m not sure if this is someone mourning a lost love or someone preparing two people (one willing, one not-so-willing) for eternity or something else altogether that I’m missing. The piece read like dreamy prose to me and I liked that. I hope you’re feeling better…

  2. This comes across to me as a story of sadness and confusion related to a great loss: the end of a relationship. Broken promises; discarded dreams. The struggle to continue without that person speaks from the line, ‘How can I go on without you?’ Nice one. 🙂

  3. The first sentence really grabbed me. It sounded very powerful, yet puzzling. Like life has become a huge unending puzzle. So, it left me feeling very torn. The rest of the story had me feeling as though I was performing “actions” and not really living in the here and now. And finally, I feel as though I am hanging onto something that is no longer there but I am going to pretend, horrifically, forever, that it still is.

  4. Dear Anne, This is such a hauntingly beautiful love story. He is dying or has died and she wants to go with him to forever. Sad but very effective! Good job! Nan 🙂

  5. To me, this was a break up. I have lived through a few and felt that way, I will always be here for you. But the you I was/am here for no longer exists.
    I think I am rambling…sorry. Just goes to show your words are thought provoking!
