Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction – Beacon

Checking again for any message at all, I find nothing. The more time passes without any word, the more my heart breaks. I didn’t think I could go through this again, but I’m still here, waiting. How long will I wait, heart wanting everything, mind expecting nothing?

I check again. Nothing. Tears fall again. Is this going to be my future, filled with desperate searching for some word to prove you’re still there, or will I finally dry up from hourly crying?

Am I waiting for a beacon to point me to the light out of this dark sadness?
