Thanks to Popping Bubbles , I found a new challenge! I love writing drabbles. Containing my writing to exactly 100 words is a challenge and I've been writing them for years. I was delighted to find this link today. The word for today's challenge was "unspoken".


Four months, three days, six hours and several hundred odd minutes. An eternity that had been filled with hurt and longing, aching to take back words that should never have been uttered in the first place. He had ached for every single second of every day. Fool! What had he done?

He had gone off to find himself, to discover exactly who he was, but all he had needed to do was ask her and she would have gladly told him. He was hers, her one and only love. All of the things he had said should have remained unspoken.

Velvet Verbosity's 100 word challenge is here. I'd love to see your response!


  1. If you'll pardon a crude-ism, my wife taught me a long time ago to "Never let your alligator mouth overload your Hummingbird ass."

    Love your piece. And welcome.

  2. I love it! It's heartbreaking and gave me chills!

  3. Wonderfully written, so moving and heartbreaking.

  4. Very well done. It's happened to me, and to most of us, I suspect. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies.

    My 55 is up here.

  5. sometimes we speak of things we can never take back, and it's sad!

    great job!

    Silent Goodbye
