Loss of Love theme 3

 Loss of Loved     

Activity or Work

How does it come about that you can’t do something any more?   To do with growing up or growing old, being injured,  disqualified, married, being a parent, having to keep up appearances in some way?

How to you describe doing this thing.   Try and describe the activity without telling the reader that it’s no longer possible for you any more.  Make the way you describe it express how you miss it.

To do this you need to focus on the details you remember.   We usually remember details because of love for them (but also from fear, unhappiness as well, alas.

You can write the piece as if it’s about someone else.  Or about something you never did and now it’s too late.

I can imagine, also, a poem in which you make a list of activities missed.   Alternatively, you could reverse the task and write about loved activitities hoped for!
