Use Your Words: October 16, 2015
Hello and happy Friday!
Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them.
My words are:
tattoos ~ pumpkin ~ bats ~ candy ~ mice ~ zombies
They were submitted by:
She blinks her eyes,
wondering if she bats her butterfly lashes hard enough if they could take her away from here.
Far away from these mindless zombies, who wander aimlessly and hold painfully dull conversations.
Their souls are satiated with candy, mindless chatter and boring sex. Where she craves a hard unforgettable fucking, discussions that flair into thoughtful debates and anything sinfully savory she could sink her teeth into.
Her tattoo stained skin, poetry leaking fingers and star speckled eyes caused others to stare and keep their distance.
Or so they told themselves.
Really it was because they were fearful silly mice. Scurrying to and fro, snitching a treat here or there just to get by, too busy or distracted to enjoy their days, their lives, any and every moment.
She wanted to fit in at one time.
Wanted to feel pretty and walk around with the perfectly carved jackolantern smile on a empty seeded pumpkin head. She wanted laugh with the sycophants and sneer at absurd suggestions that differed from her own.
She wanted a home.
Luckily, she was brave. She was different. She was odd.
Whoever she would form a tribe with would be weird and silly. They would cherish her art and her silence. They would understand that you don't talk anytime Joplin or Sinatra was on and that it was okay love everything a little too much.
But until then, she formed her own home-her contentment to be who she truly was.
