Writing Challenges

Gone

Welcome to Day 21 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 [insert profession here] agree is the reason for [insert problem here]. Today’s prompt is Last Train,  and, it was CheesyMike’s idea. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you participated in today’s challenge before [insert attempt at humour here].

Gone

subway tunnel, train, metro

I am alone on the platform.
Except for the rats.
He is gone.
The last thing he said to me was “I’ve made my decision.”
I guess I have too.
I wonder fleetingly if he’ll feel anything.
He is gone.
Why would he?
I don’t. I won’t. I can’t.
I see the lights in the tunnel.
The wind rushes past me, trying to push me away.
I push back.
The last train.
Deep breath.

I am gone.
