Day 28/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 2017: CONNECT

Day 28

I’m transported back in time to my one bedroom row house in Baltimore.  I’m sitting on my Ikea sofa, freshly gleaned of any loose change so I could buy gas.  I was so lonely, desperate to connect with someone.  But it was one of those days when nobody was around to answer their phones.  I’d dial my parent’s number holding my breath.  As soon as the voicemail clicked on, my throat would tighten like a string, and the pitch of my voice was sharper, holding back cries as I calmly left my message in that strange voice.  Another number, and the same thing happened.  It was an invisible day.  When it felt like nobody even remembered or missed me.

About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
