Today’s Tiny Tale: Broken Pieces

He thought he had broken her.

He was right.

Yet, yes yet, she pieced herself together again.

    1. You are right, Samyak. Not every man does so. Nor does every woman. My lines could be applied with the genders switched too.
      It’s about those one in a hundred who actually leave their partners in a complete mess – emotionally as well as physically. Yet, the other one survives and how!

      1. That’s true…very well said and I appreciate your rationality about it. Many take it one dimensionally quite normally “Men”.
        Keep writing such intriguing stuff. Hope to read more from you soonπŸ˜ŠπŸ’™πŸ’™

    1. Yeah… but when you really fall for someone again, you become vulnerable, again. πŸ™‚

      Also, while writing this, I had in mind a bit more than the breaking of the heart of a person. As in, those people who suffer abuse of some kind while in a relationship or otherwise, be it mental or physical.

  1. Spare in its style, Mia, yet intensely powerful in its effect.

    Some do smash, if they must (and, sadly, they really feel they must). The wreckage seeps nothing but despair.

    At first, anyway.

    Yet, more common is a person’s quality and resilience, which allow her to gather the pieces and to make them sparkle again, eventually.

    It often takes a while, and for some it never happens, yet it does happen. Our life force, our idealism, will have it no other way.

    1. Thank you for your appreciation, Keith! πŸ™‚

      You are right. Our life force, which can sometimes be translated to finally having enough of something, even if it’s pain, does force us out of the abyss.

      When I wrote this, I was in a way thinking of they who suffer from some sort of emotional or physical trauma bh the hands of their partners or otherwise. A scenario such where the perpetrator does what he does knowingly yet the victim is eventually able to rise above it. For example: rape.

      1. Ah, I see, Mia. The circumstances you contemplate certainly are more dire than I had imagined. That effects the intensity, though not the tone.

        “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words don’t hurt me.”

        Oh, but they do!

        How is it some have reserves to overcome even the deepest injuries and to continue the journey? Extraordinary!
