Equal

If there were no night and day

No darkness and light

Only a constant of one or the other

… or something in between

If there were no top and bottom

No rich and poor

Only a constant of one or the other

… or something in between

If there were no good and evil

No right and wrong

Only a constant of one or the other

… or something in between

If there were no love and hate

Only a constant of one or the other

… or something in between

If there were no joy and sadness

Only a constant of one or the other

… or something in between

If all these things were so

There would be no time or fate

No emotions or feelings

No wants or desires

No choices or mistakes

Nothing to fear and nothing to hide

Everything and everyone would be… equal

Her prompt this week was a line from one of John Mellancamp’s oldies. This is what it inspired from yours truly. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Darkness

Here’s part 15 of “The Last Grain of Sand”. I’m posting it to Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday, but it’s not really what she’s looking for, and I apologize for that. The segments are also getting longer as I move into novel mode, so you might want to print it and settle into your favorite chair. I like short chapters, but sometimes they gotta go where they want to go. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
