An Enemies Love, in 100 Words

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

Pulling my hand free from his grasp, I looked my life long enemy in the eye, finally ready to stand up for myself.
"Leave me alone," I hiss, meeting his dark green eyes. "Go get a life, so I can live mine."
Freezing, Austin's eyes flashed down to his feet, as his hands dropped by his sides. The laughing stopped, and the spark in his energetic body went out. His tan skin seemed to flush a slight red.

A Broken Family #cliffhangerqueencontest

    I have lost everything. My mother, father, brothers. The rest of my family is out to kill me, thinking that I was the one who murdered the people I love most. I have lost my wealth. And I am on the lam.

    I race down the filthy, moss-covered streets, allowing my feet to leave no sound. They will have to find me by sight, and even that will be difficult. My black cloak flies behind me....

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

He tried to forget her, but she was always there.

Faine. Sleeping in his head, just out of reach, making him think about doing things he knew you should never think about doing with your best friend. 

Faine. Her face angry, or just feeling. It was always hard to tell. 

Faine, smiling. Faine, laughing. Faine's clothes that came straight from her grandma's closet. 

Faine listening to music, feeling it with every inch of herself, singing even if she didn't know...

"First Reformed: Will God Forgive Us?"

PROMPT: Film Review Competition 2019

    Will God forgive us for destroying His creation?  That is what Ethan Hawke’s Reverend Ernst Toller puts on the sign outside of his church in First Reformed.  It is the essential question and thesis of legendary screenwriter Paul Schrader’s pièce de résistance.
    Indie-darling Hawke stars as a minister of a Dutch Reformed church in upstate New York.  The church is a dying historical artifact of a church called the “souvenir shop” by the community.  The only reason his...

We wander the world like ghosts
Our passion a sputtering fire.
You say all is our fault, but,
we didn’t make the world a failure.
 
You cause wars, wreck the world
Then flee, expecting us to fix it
Is this what we deserve?
No wonder we don’t have spirit.
 
Your wisdom stretches only,
As far as your greed.
We have not caused global warming
We have not destroyed our buildings.

The girl

But refuses to participate
Because she is strong enough
To know what she wants?

She is art

Her cinnamon brown hair like autumn

Her mint ice cream eyes dreamy and warm like the best summer nights

She's got these lips

but they look perfect for kissing
perfect for whispering lyrics to songs I know she'll love into
She, like all the best statues

Flurries of snow sink down to the white crystalized blanket under my horse's hoofprints. The sludge is melting away from under us as we walk on. Our heads are dipped low and our vows are veiled. My eyes look up to meet him. The Prince. Blood colored hair resting upon a face chiseled from stone, his eyes burning coals, the Prince. 
In my ruby cloak, I shiver, trying to stay warm. The blinding sun seared my pupil and I squinted as the...
