Imaginary friend

October 23, 2014 Leave a comment

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)

He works in strange ways
This follower of mine
He wakes up at morning
And trails me all day

As I brush my teeth
He mimics my actions
And as I walk to the busstop
I see he is right behind

Is he friend or foe?
This shadow of mine
Will he show his face?
Or always lurk behind?

Then one day as I walked
A construction site
I imagined –
He tried to hit me with a forklift

My shadow

September 24, 2013 Leave a comment

Write a post about anything you’d like, but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph:
“He tried to hit me with a forklift!”
Photographers, artists, poets: show us a NON SEQUITUR.

Death – do you ever die?

July 17, 2012 16 comments

Lurking in the shadows
Casting sly, furtive glances
Treading slowly without a sound
Thief who steals precious life

Hiding behind window blinds
A cold, silent stranger
Lying in wait for the right moment
To devour his prey

With a coy smile
He takes you in his embrace
Showering kisses all over
Taking your last breath away

Writhing in pain and agony
The sick pray for him
Yet he turns a blind eye
To their fervent pleas

He acts in mysterious ways
Sometimes striking a fatal blow
With bullet wounds, blood and gore
Or taking you away in your sleep

After the job is done
He flees the crime scene
Without leaving a trace
Of his presence behind

He dances in joy
Ignorant at his folly
The heart does not beat
But the spirit lives on

Death – Are you friend or foe?
Should I love or abhor thee?
Trailing life – like a shadow
Death – Do you ever die?
