This is a very nice - but sad- story, well written and straight to the point.
It show us that, sometimes, our own eyes can fool us and rage and impulsivity take us nowhere.

This dark piece is very haunting and effective. The emotional reactions seemed real, if uncomfortably so.

Interesting piece that reads more like a character study than a story. It has a description of the psychology of a relationship and then it transitions into a very intense slice of life scene with a tragic conclusion.

A Thousand Tears is a short story by J.C. Martin, 1780 words long. It's a very beautiful story, depicting a complicated relationship. It's very well written and shows us as much of the story as we need to know. As much as I wish there were more for us to read, I think the author has conveyed enough information to get a full picture. Though we don't know much about each character and their backgrounds, I think the author has left the majority of that to us where we can imagine our own characters and histories to them. Overall, it's very well done and quite enjoyable.
