Seasons: Part 1

My soul still searches for you.

For five long years, I was able to avoid this street. I was able to forget this area. I wanted to avoid you. I wanted to avoid us until my car stopped.

It ceased to move, for reasons I don’t know. I guess it brought me here, to the corner we call our own.

Winter, spring, summer and fall, this bench was ours.

It was a cold December night when you found me in this corner. I said my name, you said yours.

It was a blooming April morning when you asked me to be yours. Of course, I said yes.

It was a hot yet so bright July afternoon when you gave me that ring. I said I love you and you said you do, too.

I waited for you on that fateful day of October. I can vividly smell the earth scents and feel the sky winds as I saw you walk towards me.

I thought it was you. But it wasn’t you.

I thought you will come for me. But instead, I went to see you. I waited for you on our corner. But you didn’t wait for me. It’s humid autumn, but you laid still, chillingly frozen.

“Enough,” I said to myself.

I went back to my car because I cannot stand to be in this corner anymore.

I ran, then stopped abruptly when I saw my bloody-self inside my crushed car.

  1. Ohhh this was heartbreaking Rosema! But I’m glad you’re reposting some old writings, because otherwise I’d have never read it. It may be flash fiction, but this was written with a poetic touch.


  2. Oh my another story with a twist at the end. What a thing to see your own battered corpse. Interested in reading Part 2. Keep up the great writing!

    1. Actually sya ang first love ko talaga. HAHA!
      P.S. The first full-length story that I wrote when I was in highschool (the one about me and my first love) actually involved death din. Geez. Mamatay tao kaya ako nung first lives ko? HAHA
