Flash 55 - gag*

I can’t breathe. 
I’m suffocating because I haven’t the courage to suck air. 
Sharp pain shoots down the right side of my neck. 
My throat contracts like a twisted rubber band 
ready to snap and shoot me in the eye 
so I’ll have a real reason to cry. 
There’s nowhere I can go to scream.

*My babies are moving to Florida in less than a month. 
I think I'm taking it rather well, don't you?


  1. Awww Vanessa, believe me I KNOW how you feel!
    My firstborn child lives in POLAND!
    At least you are to Florida in a day.
    And yes you ARE taking it rather well...:P:P
    Loved your asthmatic 55
    Thanks for playing, just stick your head in a pillow and screetch one out.
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. Like how I'm about to scream...

  3. smiles....yeah, sure you are...smiles..
    what part of florida? we lived there for several years
    letting go is def not easy mom...smiles.

  4. I'm sure you are taking it as well as you can....sigh.

  5. OK, I can breathe again ~~ you aren't having a heart attack. BUT, I do know that pain you speak of .. hang in there.

  6. It breaks your heart when they go but at least you can visit. I was round one of mine recently and made to feel like Royallty. God knows how long that will last!

  7. I know that awful feeling. When my son moved to Durango for six months, I struggled with it but tried never to let him see how much I was suffering. I can only hope that things work out well for all of you.

  8. When we were living in California, my daughter moved to Trinidad so I'd say you're doing just fine. She's my one and only and I thought my heart would break.
