Run

The rhythmic pounding of my feet on the rain-soaked pavement calms me as I push myself onward. I focus all of my energy on getting to the end of the long, dark, empty road. The lone streetlamp on this stretch flickered off during my run two nights ago and has yet to be repaired. I like it like this. It's just me, my lungs, my legs, and the pavement. The rain gets heavier as I get faster. My lungs burn as water pours down my face. Am I crying? It's hard to tell. It feels good to get it out. I…

Strong

A lump has formed inside my chest. It is heavy, a true burden. I don't know when it became. It just is. It is rude and interrupting, like a telemarketer calling during Christmas supper. It burns inside of me; yearning for attention, wanting to affect my every thought, my every move. It claws at my heart, my lungs, my ribs; its only purpose to cause harm and distraction. It scars my organs and tears at my throat with a passion so thorough it is terrifying. I begin to feel nauseous, as though…

Creative Writing Challenge #23 - The Fault Line

There are those who say the fault belongs to mining.  Take out so much of the earth's core and it will surely collapse.

There are those who say the fault belongs to Christians who asked God to "open the eyes of the Atheists."

There are those who say the fault belongs to HAARP...  I had to look that one up because I couldn't figure out how old retired people could bring about an earthquake!!

There are those who say the fault belongs Jessica Simpson.  I didn't research…

so the future arives

in full bloom 

and wanting 

 

all i said before 

was candy 

and I glossed my 

over my eyes 

 

over and again 

'til something rang my bell 

alone upon a hill 

I heard the rhythm 

blanking me away 

 

and soon did something else come 

into the empty places 

filling spaces left vacated

by the endless stream of lonelinesses 

dancing in my…

You're IN Love

This is the one I want to enter for contest

 

You’re in Love

Words and Music Sherry Somach

Well, hello

Been such a long time

How are you?

Who’s your friend?

Pretty and special, I’m sure

Is she someone new?



Old memories

Heart skips a beat

Hope starts to rise….

‘Till I look into your eyes



Chorus

You’re in love, I know

When you look at her, you glow

I’m in pain, can’t you see?

Cause that’s…

Written in White









A pear tree drapes herself in white lace,

Blushing behind clouds as she slips on her garter,

Preparing to renew vows to Spring.





A hard mint winter is finished

She trembling in breeze,…

What I Like About Sleep

Eloise and Evelyn got to the top of the escalator, eggplant firmly in hand. As they got off, they couldn't help but notice that a priest, a rabbi and Batman were getting on the descending escalator. The de-escalator, as it were.

 

"What is this... a joke?" Evelyn groaned.

 

"We're going to a bar!" Batman boasted.

 

"Why don't you join us?" rasped the rabbi.

 

"Please!" panted the priest. "Bring your eggplant!"

 

"What the…
