Ends and Endings


There are many kinds of endings. There are those with literally earth-shattering exclamations, moving and rearranging mountains with great frenzy and wave upon wave of sea crashing unto every bit of human civilization.

There are also the quiet types. Those with solid, sordid and solemn periods enveloping existence with eerie silence. Silence is scary. It connotes tips of icebergs hiding what's underneath with a veil of false serenity.

But there are also the commas. The endings of novel trilogies. And while the author contemplates the grand finale, the characters lie still in the cupboards, also contemplating the pseudo-life they just had.

  1. Well what could be worst than an ending without any punctuation. Has it already ended? Being clueless sucks. Wow may pinaghugutan hahaha :)

    1. True. Nakakabitin. Nakakabagot. Nakakaloka. Hehe.

      Let's just say I write what I see and feel. It's easier for me that way-well most of the time at least.

  2. When you think about it, there is hope of another episode, another chapter to the characters whose fate is to remain in suspended animation inside those cupboards.

    1. But sometimes it is the hope that scars the inside. And it's all really up to the author to either write something or completely trash the characters. To be trashed sucks. Even for a work of fiction.
