Could Have Been

Drabble 100 words story

La douleur exqise*… the words that explained how he felt.

He knew that she would never be his. But when does love follow rules?

For months, he felt a heavy stone on his heart, with sad tears washing it.

The pain was killing him and he believed that he’d never get over her.

Then just like a new day, change came his way.

He realized that he was done with regrets. He had to move on.

He understood that some people can be a part of your history but never your destiny!

Slowly, he felt his heart begin to heal…

*La douleur exqise – It means, the heart wrenching pain of wanting affection of someone unattainable.

  1. I think everyone should go through this phase once in their lifetime. It makes them appreciate life better.

    Better still, it can make some of them poets, artists and bloggers :p

  2. “La douleur exquise” I like that. Even more the mouthful it translates to “the heart wrenching pain of wanting affection of someone unattainable”.
    Nicely done and woven well into the story.

    Personally I’d go with La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin meaning: “Life is too short to drink bad wine”.
