The distance between their hearts widened,
one harsh word at a time.
By the time realization struck,
they were miles apart.

That was quite tragic, I know! I’m sorry. Earlier I used to hate tragic tales too. You can read my rant (as to why many critically acclaimed works are tragic) here. But recently I’ve accepted that even tragedy has a certain literary appeal. (Case in point – this tiny tale. I think that it’s one of my best works so far!) I promise that tomorrow’s post won’t be so tragic. If you’re still with me, thanks for reading! 🙂
