some flash fiction for a stupid day

she wasn’t a ray 

of sunshine she

was the entire

sun, vibrant and 

beautiful and all

he wanted to

do was touch 

her. so he built 

a staircase that

could reach her 

and he climbed 

step

after

step

after 

step

the sun slowly 

melted his flesh

but he kept climbing 

step

after

step 

–  –  –  – 

the gun barrel

is cold against

his temple she 

comes into the 

room his heart

slows she puts

her hand on 

the gun she

says

it’s okay

she pulls the

trigger for him 

–  –  –  – 

the walk to the

ocean is a short

one from his house

when he hits the

sand he doesn’t

take his shoes off

not even when he

hits the water

he keeps walking

until he can’t 

and he has to

swim but he

keeps going 

he hums 

just keep swimming

just keep swimming
