Who is the narrator?

Broken Soul

by Maria Jose Garcia

I taint everything I touch. It all withers and dies. It's been like this ever since I was a child. Dad left, Mum died of tuberculosis...

The dark hand of death comes out of my chest like a tentacle ready to grasp its prey and I cannot do anything to stop it.

I turn to the written word to forget my sorrows and create black tales of fear and horror. It does help a bit ... sometimes. I also turn to the bottle and it blesses me with the oblivion I crave.

But nothing can help me now. The love of my life is dying and I'm unable to alleviate her pain.

I know what it will be like when she's gone. I won't be able to go on. She's unwittingly sentenced me to death.


The narrator of this flash fiction post is a famous person. Can you guess who?
