He Knows It All...As Long As It's 55 Words Or Less: "Message In A Bottle"

G Man's Friday Flash 55 happens, you guessed it, on Fridays. Write a Story, in 55 Words Or Less.

This week's entry is called "Message In A Bottle".










A missive. A note. A letter.

A plea from the past, delivered in the present.

How to get her to listen?

To read? To understand?  

To accept what I have to say?

To see how very sorry I am?

Why should she?

Back then, I didn’t listen to her.

  2. Pensive, sad, rueful, I like the guy's attitude at the end. I hope she does read, listen, understand...
