My entry for this months writing prompt at: Velvet Verbosity:
In the depths of the night there is a random grey creature, pale-faced and ashen. She sits in her car watching the people come and go. Such normal lives compared to her own life.
Then she looks again and sees the absurdity of each and every soul on the planet. How we conflict with each other. Never knowing or seeing who or what we truly are.
Every time she thought she’d got a grip on it, it had slipped away from her. She knew almost everything about herself but what she was. They hadn’t been able to teach her that.
I like this! I like the concept of her being a watcher!
Thanks, and thank you for stopping by. 🙂
Very nice. I enjoyed that. Mysterious actually. Really left me wanting more.
Thanks for letting me read!
Thanks very much!
Mysterious and gripping. I think we’ve all at some point felt that way (some more than others)…very cool entry!
Thanks Sarah. x
Ooohh… kinda spooky. I want to know more too.
Yeah, this one is more on the spooky side . It even scares me a little and I wrote it.
I found that really deep!! I think it goes really well with the word prompt because it has so many layers…a very interesting and enjoyable piece!! 🙂
This is spooky. Have you heard of the watchers? Supposedly creatures before the biblical flood and the reason for it that were the offspring of angels mating with humans. Read a rather creepy book (kinda liked it though) called “Angelology” that dealt with the myth.
I haven’t heard of that one before. Sounds like a good book. I must look that one up. Thanks!
I really like this. Great job! I especially love the second paragraph. So very true.
Hm, interesting. One of those entries that makes me want to know more.
