ME/CFS strikes again!

Hello all.

I had hoped to have written and posted my vignette for the second Weekly Writing Challenge by now. Annoyingly my ME/CFS has been a bit worse recently and I've not really felt up to writing anything. I might catch up within the next few days. I might not.

Hopefully I'll feel better before A215 starts in October.

Poem for Weekly Writing Challenge - Week 1

The challenge was to write a poem of 40 lines or less with 'Brutality' as the theme.

I decided to go about this a slightly different way rather than writing a dark poem. Please let me know what you think!


Waiting. Anticipation.
Eyes pinned to spoon, mouth.
Quiet but for the chewing and swallowing.
No thought process visible on face.
Nothing. Blank.

Impatience. A question.
Umming and ahhing now.
The same question repeated but louder.
How does it taste?
An answer. Brutal.

Humble Beginnings

Hello! I've decided to jump on the bandwagon of my fellow A215ers and start a blog. This is my first experience with Blogger so please bear with me while I iron out the imperfections. It is also going to take me a while to add all the other A215 blogs to my following list.

My next post should be my poem written for the Facebook prompt. I probably ought to get on with writing it then!
