  32. Okay, I’ve never submitted here before so let me know if there’s a limit…or a style or anything other then my generic albeit vaguely poetic self which would give me cause to opt out rather than adjust because, perfection is being yourself. However… rambling’s aside. Here are my submissions.

    1. Together they never forgave each other.

    2. Last night they cried mercy eternally.

    3. Death was the release they longed for.

    4. Each popcorn bite, a silent scream

    and finally.

    5. He stopped my pain, squeezed throat.

    I actually loved this idea and it gave me several ideas for work to add to my own so “Thankyou.”
