Hard

by Lara Wilson

His heart has become stone, hard and unyielding. It had to. All the losses, year after year had become too much to bear. It was either harden himself or go insane.

Sometimes Tim wonders which one he really did.

There are others stones, ones he visits on never forgotten anniversaries. Some are weathered with time, some are new. Carved with names and dates that don't tell the full story because they can't.

But he knows the stories and he keeps those truths inside his hardened heart and wonders if the next loss will finally make his stone cold heart shatter.
