Daily Writing – July 19th, 2016

Today’s prompt is thanks to Figment.com which recommended I use the following quote as inspiration/include it in a piece.

“I’m just the backup friend.”

I ended up going with a very short, first person perspective of an inanimate object.  Any guesses as to what it is?  I’ll put the answer way down at the bottom so you’ll have to scroll.  😉

Orbit

Everyone seems to notice her, even when I’m right beside her. She casts a light in the darkest of times that they can’t help but notice, and I must admit I’m a bit envious.

But in the middle of the night when I feel most alone, I hear her. I see her. Off in the distance or right by my side, she’s there.

It is in these moments I remember that as long as she’s around, someone will always see me.

It’s the moon.  The moon feels like the sun’s backup friend.
