Sunday 160....


.

.
In the heart of darkness,
once again you are joined by your good friends
doubt, silence, lonliness, tears, fears, frustration.
Where is sleep when you need him?
.

.
Hi everybody, I hope your week-end is Kicking Ass.
Coffee Talk will be back soon, this Sunday I'm participating in my good friend MONKEY MANS little thing that he does called SUNDAY 160.
You write a story using 160 characters, as in a maxed out text message. Of course I haven't quite gotten the hang of a hyper linking within MY post, but thats coming very soon.
See you tomorrow for Micro-Fiction Monday.
Peace...!!!

very reflective soulful piece, hidden during daylight- comes out at night before sleep --shadows playing across the ceiling of our mind.

Very good 160,

Joanny

Hmmm...with friends like that, who needs enemies?

I've had nights like that. Too many of 'em.

Nice 160, g-man. I did one too...HERE

Very melancholy piece from you, G. I like it. Oh, and by the way, if you find that Sleep (he's probably in a bar somewhere), tell him to get back to work. He's really been falling down on the job.

Check the switches that is where sleep most often can be found.

As a chronic insomniac I know this story well.

solitude is not loneliness, but in the dark of night it is hard to tell the difference...nice 160, clear and universal.
HAKAWE what's left of it!

An excellent question wrapped up in a brilliant 160, G. Wishing you only sweet dreams, my friend.
