In The Dark

Written from the word prompt

It isn’t something I want to get used to.

Not quite blind, it is like I am seeing my world in black and white. Shadows where their faces normally give me clues to what is happening. A smile here, eyes narrowed there, I could always see if someone was fooling me. Now, I have to use my hearing instead.

Sometimes I hear that tone change.

I want to learn, going blind shouldn’t make a difference.

Unravelling my white cane, I swipe right, then left, just like the doctor showed me. I listen to the sounds of other people, talking. A meeting with a friend here, a bombardment of feet there.

I wonder, if getting a guide dog would make my life easier.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
