'How did I survive that' ... (In 99 words)

I had planned to write some poetry this afternoon, but, whilst searching Twitters writing prompts this morning, I stumbled upon the following ... write a 99-word story using this ending: How did I survive that?)

I may still ponder the poetic later on this evening, but for now....

I don’t remember how I got to my bedroom that evening with a full bottle of tablets and a pint glass of water. I don’t remember contemplating suicide, or for one single moment wishing I was dead.

I don’t remember feeling suicidal. I don’t remember wanting to die. 

I do vaguely remember taking the pills.
There was no lining up of tablets like you see on TV, no thoughts, no fear, no emotion - only *nothingness*.

I tipped the pills from bottle to mouth until there were no more pills to take. 

Oftentimes I wonder... How did I survive that?  


28 years (and four children) on - I feel incredibly blessed to be here.

'Forget Me Not' #poem

Copyright©2015kimmie All Rights Reserved 

Life's throwing me more than my fair share of 'yukkity yuk yuk' ATM, and I'm having to go with the flow,  I'm muddling through (in my own way) but there's not much time (or head space) for my efforts to keep the blog flowing until I'm able to write more, I thought I'd share a 'here's one I wrote earlier' poem..  - Normal rambles will resume soon, I hope!

Thank you for allowing me to share

God bless you and all those you love
