"Here we go again!"
Here's mine! https://www.gayauthors.org/forums/story/myiege/promptedtotheedge/4
I took a shot at this. Tried to make it less dark and twisty than my usual. https://www.gayauthors.org/story/totallyy/myintern/1
Myiege - very poignant and touching. Loved the couple's interaction even with the drunken mess.
Totallyy - great tension between the main characters. Loved the last line.
Great work from both of you!! Loved 'em!!
Here we go again
Jarred from slumber at 3am
Thunder booms, rattling the windows
Lightning slashes through the rooms and the lights go out
The lights always go out when it storms
We check the windows, make sure they're closed
Then scribble a hasty note as we grab our cameras
Jump in the van
Tires squealing as we race towards the edge of town
Lightning is easier to see
Without power lines in the way
And silos to block us
We park by waving corn
Ready the gear and watch the heavens
Trying to catch flashes of light in a rain dark sky
Most times we fail and drag tail home as the storm is faded
Rumpled and wet and smelling of rain and cigarettes
Sometimes we’re rewarded by pink steaks and bright blue explosions of light
Just enough to make us eager for another storm
When the thunder booms and we laugh
Racing through the rain
Here we go again.
great poem and great flow Layla. Awesome job. Really encapsulates the environment.
Mann - thanks, I'm glad you liked it!
