Thread: can you write a 50 word story? try it!

    It was a blind moisturizer test. My left hand was placed in glass dish that felt like lotion. My right was placed in another that felt soft, cool, and textured, somehow. When the blindfold was removed, I was shocked to see that the right-hand dish was full of human eyeballs.
    Sometimes, I wrestle with my demons. Other times, we just snuggle.

    At the console Alex could observe the multiverse, billions of years unfolding in front of his eyes within seconds. Big bang, big crunch, big bang, big crunch. Whole universes built, flourished and ended all in time it took Alex to sip his coffee.

    The crooning of the night birds set the procession of his funeral with a solemn night-song that was befitting to Argnor. We placed his body upon his galleon and watched as it burned, his soul melding with the smoke. In time, the remnants of the ship sunk into the water.

    This was a fun! More difficult than I was expecting to keep below 50 words.


    His arms and back burned furiously. 15 minutes, an eternity, had passed since a bystander ran to find help. He was staring into the face of death praying for the stamina to continue. As he collapsed in agony, he closed his eyes and reached for her neck. Finally… A pulse.

    Eep-eeep-eeep … I slam the snooze button, then remember. 2:00 A. M., we said.

    Cardboard box under the bed, right. I yank it out and stare at the spraypaint cans, their black nozzles like black seeds, ready for planting in the streets, in the concrete and brick.

    It’s time.

    In my mouth, if there be sweetness,
    It has come from my Creator;
    If my hands are filled with beauty,
    All the beauty comes from God.
    ~ from The Kalevala (paraphrased)

    Whom have I in heaven but You?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides You.

    ~ Psalm 73:25

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    “I’m Shania D. Bennet. I’m from the moon.” That’s how she introduces herself.

    She has a reputation for loopy behaviour—sprinkling Lucky Charms in the woods, drinking heavy cream from the carton, pouring honey on her steps “for the flies.” I say, she’s an honest-to-goodness space alien. Also, my second-to-best friend.

    In my mouth, if there be sweetness,
    It has come from my Creator;
    If my hands are filled with beauty,
    All the beauty comes from God.

    And earth has nothing I desire besides You.

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    Looking up.
    In tub.
    Underwater.

    Weight on chest.
    Mommy's hand.
    Call for Mommy.
    Bubbles out.
    Water in.

    Can't breathe.
    Mommy, Daddy yelling.
    ALL LOUD. TOO LOUD.
    Call for Daddy.
    No bubbles.
    Water in.

    Can't breathe.
    Weight on chest.
    Mommy's hand.
    CAN'T BREATHE
    WEIGHT ON CHEST
    MOMMY'S HAND
    CAN'T BREATHE

    Blank page.
    Fingers drumming next to mouse.
    A sip of black coffee.
    Clean glasses with T-shirt.
    Reach for cigarettes that aren't there anymore.
    Why do I do this to myself?
    Deadline.
    Sip of coffee.
    Typing now.
    The basketball rolled slowly past the overflowing rubbish bin...
    All is well again.
    The problem with understanding people is: the more you understand, the less you will believe in miracles.
