FLASH FICTION FRIDAY: Bridging | #flashfiction #pictureprompt

Bridging

my eyes linger on the other side,

was it any better over there?

glancing behind me, the pain is still there

it’s hunting for me, not able to sink it’s debilitating teeth into my psyche…

for the moment at least

I want to cross over, to go, to live in another space

a space of light, laughter, love

all I needed to do was run to the other side

cross over the wooden rails marking the trail of redemption

but would my feet carry me, would they fail like everything else?

not knowing the answer, I lunge forward,

taking the first step toward freedom

toward a life of less pain, less misery

the path was clear, open

but the teeth sink in, the pain has me

can I ever break free?
