Flash Fiction: Figures

benchIn the distance I could only see figures; not able to make out faces or the names of the two bodies resting on each other.

Their shoulders were slumped and necks uncomfortably bent…stacked almost like a layer cake switching between boney shoulder layer with heavy head topped with boney shoulder.

I walked closer.

Curious as to what made the bodies melt into each other so precariously.


Old age?

Just death.

  1. How about THAT? Whew.
    How long have they been there without someone noticing. Except you, that is. :-)

  2. Aww, could it be love in its final pose instead? Sort of sweet in a dark way.

      It could be, couldn’t it.

      Love in it’s final pose…that’s actually a beautiful thought.
