Flash Fiction Thursday~ Sanity by Mikael

I got this idea this morning–this is going to be a five minute free write (my schedule right now is insanity so I’m lucky to do that). I already have an idea of where it’s going to go which is nice, but it is going to be very stream-of-conscious-like. Please enjoy and feel free to comment.

It’s ten-thirty-two in the morning and I’m sitting on a bench. I’ve been waiting for what feels like hours. For nothing. A bird flies overhead. The bird doesn’t like you. The bird just wants to fly. I wish I could fly. There have been days where I wish wings could just burst out of my shoulder blades and take me into the skies. You’ll never fly. My brother said he’d meet me here. It’s three minutes past the time he said he’d be here. He’s not coming. Maybe he ran into an old friend. Maybe he thinks you’re crazy. Maybe he forgot he was meeting me. Maybe he thinks you’re not worth meeting. Whatever the reason, it’s nice to be outside. I don’t get to do this very often. Usually I sit in my house. Alone. with nothing to do but watch television. Only more voices to add to your head. He said we’d get coffee. Coffee makes you sick. Coffee is bad for you. I think I’d rather get tea and a scone. You pansy. You’re not worth meeting. You would think my brother would be here by now. But he’s not coming. He said, “Come on, Lucy. Just come outside and meet me tomorrow. You won’t regret it.” Yes, you will. So far I don’t. It’s beautiful out here. That’s because you’re uglier than everything else. The sky is blue. How your skin should be. The flowers are in bloom. Like you never were. And I know that my brother will come see me for the first time in years. If you only knew…

oh my goodness. i dont know if you really truly just meant this to be emotional or just a ramble or rant of sorts, but so many of the little thoughts you threw in even though they seem to be random ideas or thoughts crossing your mind at that moment… they are SO STRONG. really touching and makes me remember that we all are the same really. we fear, we doubt, we dream, we lose faith in ourself, we worry, we wish, we hope, we are all just human and now when i walk passed someone on a bench, I will remember that I have sat on that bench thinking probably more than likely the exact things she is thinking. and we are not all so different after all. so, we are NOT strangers. :) of course i still wont take candy if she offers lol! anyway, didnt mean to ramble bout my thoughts on that, but this really struck something in me.
