Once Upon a Day

So, I want to improve my writing (since I'm lazy and never update) and I have decided to write at least one short story or paragraph or poem or SOMETHING once a day. And I hope to get some feedback and CC's to help improve my writing more. This is a collection of the stories and stuff I will be writing once a day. Some of it may be words of wisdom or questions I want to ask you all, so I hope you answer!


4. The Day I Was Alone


        Time stands still for me on this day. I am frozen in a deserted wasteland of unhappiness and guilt. It's always the same on this one day. As I grow older, my heart grows even more distant than before. I don't think. I don't breathe. I don't do anything.

        Not on this day.

        This day is one that plagues me. It's a sickness that attacks the body with relentless stress and pain. No one understands. No one feels the way I feel. They couldn't possibly know how it feels to be alive on this day.

        They couldn't possibly understand that, on this day, I'd give anything to not be alive.

        Things would be a lot simpler on this day if I weren't here to wallow in self-pity. I'd be much more at ease if I were with them.

        On this day, I am still a scared little girl waiting for someone to pick me back up again.

        On this day, my family left me for a better place.
