Quicksand

crawling

Digging my way out of the quicksand that is my mind, I lie vulnerable, spent and exhausted. Taking deep gulps of acrid air, I realize I’m now in a fire pit of regret.

Trifecta Writing Challenge

The Trifecta weekend challenge is to write 33 words about exorcising a demon, real or imagined.

  1. Holy cow. What a picture! Perfect match.

  2. Dear GOD that picture! Where do you FIND these things? (That’s rhetorical. I know the answer. The real question I’m asking is what is it about your eye that allows you to draw these images out of places?)
