A succinct ode to longing and becoming a part of everywhere that you go, to questions that most of us face but very few can truly answer. Each of our 100 Word stories is an affecting piece of flash fiction that brings to life a particular moment, idea or setting.


What would you do if you knew you could never return again? What would you take with you, besides the heaviness that fills platforms and terminals? How would you explain your sinking to those who have never felt your regret, who have never built a life that was uprooted, who are whole and not scattered across cities and oceans? How can you explain being torn between one place and another, between true and false, hopeful and broken, solace and opportunity? How can you show them that home is only in your soul, a place that can never be found again?
