Friday Fictioneers-Cursed

Posted on

Word Count-100


She is on self-imposed exile.

I watch her taking long walks all alone.

Singing ‘I’m cursed to be alone’.

I tried to be friendly with her but she declined.

She said that she is cursed and everyone she will love or become friendly will die or go away.

She recalls.

First time she cried when her husband died suddenly, then one by one her dear ones died in a procession. Slowly her tears dried. Her eyes were like Dead Sea.  Now no one’s death moves her. There are no tears left in her eyes.

She prefers a lonely life .

( This based on the story of someone I know)


About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. What a tragic little tale, made all the more emotive by it being based on someone real.


  2. Dear Indira, I’m so sorry for the person you know. What a tragic life she has had to bear. I hope things will get better for her.
    Nan 🙂


  3. Dear Indira,

    On a grammatical note, I think you want ‘when her husband died…” past tense.

    Aside from the nitpick, I feel for the person you know. What a sad way to live. Tragic that her lifestyle is self imposed. My heart goes out to her.

    Nicely done.




  4. Bleak. I like it.

  5. My thoughts and prayer to your friend. It’s never easy to see someone we care about loose so many in their lives. I hope and pray she will find reasons to smile one day.

  6. Indira, I’m sorry to hear your friend is suffering from such deep depression. She needs help from a professional if someone can get her to accept it. Your story is a good description of this state of mind. She’s punishing herself for something she didn’t have control over. Well written. —Susan


  7. A sad tale well told.

    Unfortunately widows in India are often blamed to be unlucky and are severely discriminated and often suffer from psychiatric problems including severe depression.



I would love to hear from you
