Unworldly Attackers

( #unworldly #attackers #flash #fiction )

"Looking at Paris in this light makes me wish for the safe times of our youth."

"But when was the last time you had this much fun?" came a smoke filled voice from behind her.

Jill glared at her brother's ash covered face. How could he consider this fun. She had just survived from being crushed with the burning beams of the Eiffel Tower. The hairs on her neck had been singed by the heat coming from the molten metal.

Reaching back she rubbed her neck to ascertain the damage. Her cooler hand touching her neck provided some relief to the pain that she was feeling. She looked around the dry dusty water for some sign of water that she could use. Resigned to her situation she gave up the look.

She looked back out the opening in the wall, just in time to see the unworldly projectile flying towards them. There was no time to escape, the world was doomed.

Create

( #create #acrostic #poem #poetry )

Churning through the mud
Radiated from your mind
Every single thought
At your beckon call
Till you are crushed by
Everyone

Calling her name

( #poem #poetry #free #verse #name #gas )

The nice quiet night
Sitting there without fright
What a time
What a night

How could this peace end

Without warning,
sight, plea, or writ
A rumbling began to grow

Oh please
Oh please No.

How could this happen now
The pressure growing within
The displeasure showing

My mind anguishing
What if she hears
What if she knows
The terrible sound
It will come.

Brrraaapp!

She did wail
"Did you call me"

Time

( #time #poem #acrostic #BradyLB #pondering )

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick 
I drink this ugly center link 
My demons bring me to the brink 
Every time I think 

 Though I have no time 
If I could only stop this crime 
My life would be able to chime 
Even Deep life's rhyme 

 Time is running out 
Is this my worst thinking blowout 
My mind is full of selfish doubt 
Even you should shout 

Time to get going 
In all things that you need doing 
Move your demons aside knowing 
Endings are showing

Write

( #write #acrostic #poetry #pondering #BradyLB )

What is the next line of mine?
Rhyming all the time
Is it as bitter as lime
To do this crime
Everyone may leave on a dime.
