InstaFic

Here’s where you’ll find quick bites: 55 fiction, 99 fiction, 6 word stories, one sentence stories and twitteratti stories (the forms of  micro-fiction I know). If there are other kinds of micro-fic, do introduce me to it. I don’t do Haiku (rather can’t).

Maybe some day, I’ll start 69 fiction too (erotica in 69 words or less ;-))

# (4) – Adolescent Acrimony #

I say:
1) don’t give me your: sympathy, empathy, apathy, unwarranted benevolent encouragement, disparaging declarations, pearls of wisdom;
2) share with me not your: love, hate, anguish, bitterness, frustration, sorrow, amazement, amusement, musings;
3) trap me not in your: rules, regulations, norms, customs, expectations, broken dreams, irreparable aspirations;
for all I ask is give me nothing; yes, let me yell it out loud and clear to you: give me NOTHING, allowing me to be just me, and
leave me to the peril of my consuming and ravaging journey embarked upon in search of me; which lies in ruins, shattered and tattered in this conformist world of yours; the pieces of which I shall find and glue together to discover my identity.

# (3) – Lost Opportunities #

In my late forties, with regret defining every moment of my life; one day after days of deliberation, having finally resolved; from my cupboard I retrieved my wedding dress, carefully gift-wrapped it, wrote the address I got from the orphanage on it, put a note within it which read, ‘Like many, I’m a victim of circumstance and I understand that no word of mine can ever pacify any of your grudges; but I dare share one parting gift with you: this dress that I could never use and hope you’ll find it in your heart to pardon this unworthy mother’; went out to post it, returned home to smell the leaking gas, and mustered the courage to light a match.
