All I Want for Christmas

100 words about a Christmas wish; all I want for christmas is you

I know I’ve no right to make demands. I acted like a right selfish cow. I thought, though, I wanted to be free again.

But I’ve been sat here for hours, writing my wish list. All I’ve to show for myself is a page filled with your name.

You know how they say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone? Yeah, that. Should have seen it coming, right? Should have known that my heart didn’t like the decision to leave you. My head has conceded defeat. They both want you back. I want you back.

Come back.

  1. Sounds like someone is in a hard place. I hope she gets her guy back even though she never saw how important he was until he was gone. Maybe there is hope because she realizes now.


  2. Been here. I know the feeling. Brain and heart finally agreed… Wonderful reckoning but also a kick in the gut. Beautiful letter, Sonya!


  3. That’s a tough one – sometimes you take someone so for granted, you pick up on their faults and can’t see their good points through the everyday crap. It’s only when they’re gone and the fog of irritation clears that you can finally focus on what it was you loved about them.
    Can he forgive the pain she’s caused him, though? What do you think, Sonys – do you have a sequel?

      1. So many of your shorts feel like they could be jumping off points for serials or longer pieces. So many questions left unanswered. I’ll be intrigued to read more 🙂
