    Default Some Thing

    The man in the dusty black suit
    had rather large feet stuffed inside
    cracked leather half-boots
    And a long thin face shadowed beneath
    The flat brim of a black hat
    He came to a town that
    was locked in deep winter's frost
    And suddenly all innocence
    was lost...
    To be continued....

    Default Re: Some Thing

    Her given name was Sarah
    however they called her "Red" because of her flame
    colored hair,
    she ran a diner on Hara Street
    which was still open at this late hour.
    Red liked to greet
    her customers with a smile
    while
    offering them hot, rich coffee.
    On this certain night her mood was blue
    for earlier she had lost someone who
    had meant some thing to her
    And when "he" eased through the
    door of the eatery on a shadow as slippery
    as midnight oil he brought with himself
    a scent of snow like old pennies
    and ice.
    The little bell above the door never tinkled though
    Red didn't notice.
    "Hi there. Hello." Said the man in black offering neither a smile nor a frown,
    in fact his face was blank at all times except
    for a brief glimmer of some thing way back in his
    eyes.

    Her given name was Sarah but everyone called her "Red" because of her flame colored hair.
    She ran a diner on Hara Street and it was still open at this late hour although empty.
    She usually greeted her customers with a sunny smile
    while serving them hot,rich coffee in
    generic white mugs.
    Tonight her smile froze in place
    as "he" eased through the door
    on a shadow as dark as crude oil
    bringing with himself the scent of snow
    like old pennies and ice.
    "Hi there.Hello". He said without offering a smile or a frown.
    In fact his expression was neutral from the nose down,
    Although a brief spark of some thing glimmered far back
    In his eyes beneath the flat brim of the black
    hat.
    (Was how I intended to write it) I ran out of editing time.Oh well..shrugs...

    keep it going - it's an old story, but you have made it interesting to read
    with your personal touch...

    Which movie was that? I've seen my fair share of movies featuring the man or a man in black.This thing that I'm writing about is a mixture of a nightmare and a Stephen King novel that I've recently finished.The nightmare happened about the time my wife had me served with divorce papers.
