Day’s two theme was emotion, and the challenge was to not show any faces.
When I was brainstorming last night, I was drawn to words like grief, loss, death. So I decided to have a stream of consciousness exercise; writing nonstop for 2 minutes (might have been longer), without stopping to think or edit.
The day I lost you, I lost all hope. The world suddenly became dark and bleak. I lost all purpose. The day you died, you took a part of me with you. Now I walk around aimlessly, hoping that it would all just be a dream, and I’ll wake up and find you next to me. The day you took your last breath, I wanted you to take mine with you. I don’t want to live in a world where we don’t breathe the same air.
I’m holding on to what doesn’t exist anymore.
A long time ago, I lost someone who meant the world to me. Circumstances weren’t on our side, and I went through a long period of time where I convinced myself that he’s dead. I killed him in my head. Mourning his death meant his memory remained pure, but grieving over a broken heart meant his memory was tainted with anger.
Whew. That was tough to write, shoot, and edit. I’m reading to move on to day 3 now haha.
