The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

Here is something new and different. Make of it what you will. This one is probably my very favorite piece to date. In the sense that it holds a true bit of life and means something to me. I hope you take something from it.

Shades



  Life banished me to the land of ash and slag. Everything around me was reduced to subtle shades of smoky soot. Moving through each day left me fearful that the color in my life would remain forever absent.

We met by chance, or accident, or something more ordained. You began to show me how to live life, and find fun, even in that drab existence. Days turned into weeks, which turned into months. Time moved forward, even as we grew closer.

 We lay damp limbs entwined in the dark. We talked of silliness, seriousness, satire, and nonsense. It meant nothing, and it meant everything. You kissed me before we parted.

Driving home in the gloomy gray of a rain-soaked night, I saw the red light and slowed to a stop. That is when it became noticeable. The red light leaked down onto the wet pavement in cherry red swirls. The light changed to green and the pavement became smeared with muddy teal waves. Shock and surprise left me blinking.

 Vibrant shades of color were standing out from the subtle shades of gray. In some way, some how, you brought color back into my life.

I am a writer, lover, parent, friend...I don't know I find this awkward.
