Diary of a short-armed man.

The Diary of the Short-armed Man. (Day 7) By CpSingleton © 2016

January 7th
Good Evening my flower.

I should be in a great mood today, but I feel empty inside and sickly.

Did you really come down to visit me last night? I’m not sure if it wasn’t just a dream.

I enjoyed the time we had to chat, love, but am I greedy to want more?

You said that I must stay strong for the kids, but they’re all grown up now. June has her own life and grown up kids and Kevin…well…I don’t think he wants anything to do with his old Dad anymore. He would have called or visited if he did, wouldn’t he?

My head tells me it was nothing but a dream, yet my heart says you were here, on our bed, holding my hand and smiling at me.

I’m going to stop writing now, love, because I can’t see the words for stupid tears!

Oh, why can’t you come back for good?!
Sorry about that, Mol. I’m better now. A little anyway. I don’t mean to make you feel guilty and I am grateful you came to see me. 

I’m just a greedy, greedy, old man who misses you more than you can know.

There was that insistent bloody knocking on the front door again earlier. I wish they’d go away and leave me alone.

It’s funny how the ones you want can’t stay, or don’t visit at all, and the ones you don’t want knock all the damned time.

I might need to pop out tomorrow, as I’ve not got any bread. I’ll have to wear a hat because I’m having real trouble brushing my hair. Silly, isn’t it?
Missing you more than ever,




About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
