Blogging Challenge, Courtesy of OM. “Her Smile”


Here, I’m doing part of a challenge from OM’s blog. You can find it here, if you’d like to give it a go: Also, feel free to read the rest of his blog, as it’s pretty damn good. You won’t be disappointed, though you might possibly be offended at some point. Suck it up.

” 1. Write a love poem and stop in the middle. Change the mood of the poem and see how it ends.

He reaches
toward those young, wild cheeks
gasping for breath
beneath storm clouds;
toward full lips and eyes
that look into some other place-
some place darker, brighter, more alive.

He reaches toward her-
her hand quivers in the wind, limp
nearly severed by mangled steel.

He reaches toward her soul
through the shredded cage;
shards imbedded in the frame.
She smiles,
endorphins and sirens sing
angry lullabies and she knows.

Soon, child.
