What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist, that is, in exactly five sentences.
The scraggly plant I brought home and tended to, the one with dark purple blooms and pale yellow curly stamens, has grown taller than me. There’s this new singer I chanced upon while surfing the net on whom I have a massive crush, and I listen to his songs day and night. The new dish I tried my hand at turned out to be a disaster and had to be hastily confined to the dustbin before anyone else caught a whiff of it. When I finally finished the book I had almost given up on as a lost cause, I shed a few quiet tears because it was over and I felt I would never again find another as good as it…..
So many things I have been tucking away into the recesses of my mind, to tell you when you and I get together some day, will now remain unspoken, forever. Your barriers are up, and I have no strength left to claw through the reinforced cement and reach you.
