BrewNSpew Cafe – August 12, 2019


thundering moments

nature shares stormy assaults

echoes fall quiet

“There are many who don’t wish to sleep for fear of nightmares. Sadly, there are many who don’t wish to wake for the same fear.”
Richelle Goodrich

Presenting the week’s challenge – You may use the words and/or the image for this week’s prompt.

daymare – (noun) –  A terrifying experience, having the characteristics of a nightmare, during wakefulness.

nightmare – (noun) – An oppressed state during sleep, accompanied by a feeling of intense fear, horror, or anxiety, or of inability to escape from some threatened danger or from pursuing phantoms or monsters. Also, called incubus.

laugh in darkness

ghosts tango in moonlight

scrawled footprints on vaulted ceilings

bad dreams


daytime drama

shadows menace sunlight

upon walls like spidery webs

      • It is being held hostage again, just like my phone has been. I have working aimlessly with help desk, as I was lock out my own account. I have screen shots and been in communication with the help desk. This is sad, my work and now my account. I don’t have the energy right now. Thanks for letting me now.
