Softball is many things. Today, softball is a broken heart.

“I’m sorry, but we don’t have a spot for you on the team this year.”

A single tear rolled down her cheek from beneath her blackened sunglasses.

Softball is many things. Today, softball is a broken heart.

  1. I love the simplicity of this post, and the repetition cements the sorrow that this slice brought to your life today. I love the power of writing to capture these moments. When the next door opens, this post will remind us of the certainty in the uncertain.

  2. Your pithiness is your power! What a difficult exchange to edit. I’m sure there was so much to say but the metaphor works so wonderfully without a lot of extra details.

  3. Woah, this is brilliant. This is so many things – sad and honest and thought-provoking and beautiful. I am wondering so many things right now… was this you? Did you witness something like this?
