The challenge today is to focus on [Promises in the Dark] and use it for a short story, a piece of flash fiction, or a poem that you can share with the WordPress writing community.
Lifetime stretched, caught between love and isolation
Sun’s bright spring, sunset’s fall, heart’s full and starved nations
Peaks of sweet ecstasy to caves flooded with tears
Barren haunted dustbowls, choked with cloying fears
A place is reached where tired hearts, seasoned eyes can see
That numbness’ wall behind’s the kindest place to be.
