They  had taken everything, more than everything, leaving him with nothing but a bent and broken soul. He hadn’t missed the things at first, not for a long time, and when he had it was too late. From then on, nothing made sense, nothing remained, nothing mattered. His was the reflection of emptiness behind stolen eyes.

He stood on the bridge over the river, staring down at the dark memory of dark water.

Spread his arms and fell forward like a broken bird, remembering flight.

If he closed his eyes real tight and made a wish on a falling star, then maybe he might wake up tomorrow and have his life back.

-CS Knotts, The Cobra Effect

Or not. Probably not. Definitely not. Life was fucked. End of story.

He slumped down against the tree, feeling the rough bark through the thin material of his shirt. Smoke filled the air, lying low over the ground, filling his nostrils with the memory of his loss.

He’d lost his job, his house, his cat. What else did he have to lose except his life. At the moment, he felt losing his life might just be okay. Everything he owned, all the memories and all his past had been inside his house; now everything was gone.

He wasn’t sure how he had survived. Couldn’t untangle the quagmire of thoughts and memories of the night before. Anyway, he wasn’t sure it mattered.

There was nothing left.

Pushing himself up, he stared at the smoldering remains of his life for a moment and then turned away. Nothing left.

Stepping onto the road, he started to walk.
