Dreaming Reality

Today's post is my entry into this week's 100 Word Challengehosted by Velvet Verbosity. The 100 Word Challenge is an exercise in which we write exactly 100 words in response to the weekly prompt word. Click the link to read the other entries–good stuff over there! 
This week's prompt was "unbidden"

The thoughts came to her unbidden. Morning, noon, and night the whys and what ifs echoed through her head like a loudspeaker that she couldn't silence. Even as she slept thoughts turned into dreams. Dreams that felt so real they startled her awake. She would sit for hours on the edge of the bed, sweaty and shaken, trying to figure it out. Was this the reality? Or the dreams? What if she had begged? What if he had stayed? Always the same questions echoed in her head. She couldn't stop them any more than she could stop her own breath.


  1. Oh, my. Very good. Taken from my own head.

  2. Regrets. They make it so difficult to move on. Good job capturing that emotion.

  3. Interesting that we both went to the dream world for our entries. :) Nicely done!

  4. Hang on. Is that a new profile photo? Because I love it.

    Regrets suck, your profile photo rocks.

  5. Yes Ma'am. Hubby and I had new photos done a couple of weeks ago. Posted it in blog It Was Time. After losing the weight, I just wanted a new picture to document and we hadn't had any made since right after we got married 16 years ago.
