Centus Review – Tina
Well Jenny Matlock has certainly rolled the red carpet out for the Golden Anniversary of Saturday Centus! Rather than writing our own pieces, we have to choose one from last week & review it! The same rules of 100 words still apply! The piece I am reviewing was by Tina over at Mummy Diaries who wrote:-
Devastated, heartbroken, that empty feeling inside. Would I ever get over the love of my life April?
Times of staring into space, lonely moments in the dark, ready meals for one. Would I ever see past the 2 year love story that we shared together?
A knock at the door came. Making my way there slowly passed the drawn curtains. “Just go away” I muttered.
3 months on and I was still miserable in my own skin! But this woman’s grin would brighten up anyones day
“Hi I’m May. I’ve just moved in next door”
Then something inside me suddenly took away all that pain and I thought “April showers bring May flowers!” ……
This piece by Tina has all the hallmarks of a passionate writer. She has encapsulated not only the despair of someone who has been recently rejected but also the loneliness of living alone after sharing your life with someone. The self loathing and guilt of the hero comes through the writing with the physical descriptions Tina uses. I wondered if a man would have those feelings or if they came from the author being female. One thing is certain, he was certainly likely to perk up when a pretty smiling girl came to visit!
Tina – I enjoyed reading & reviewing!
Now pop over the Jenny’s & see what other reviewers have got up to!
