Trees lumbering from the light. Yeah. And I guess if a few of them got together they could have a log jam session. :)

Did they really lumber away or did they larch away? ;)

Once more, I kiss my baby son goodnight.
Once more, he looks up at me in wonder.
Returning to the grave I pray, "Once more."

Our life bubbles extend before us for most of our existence.
At some point they begin to shrink.
Sometimes they just pop.

I didn't understand this the first three times I read it. I think I do now :)

I'm not certain, but I think punctuation is a requirement in Twabbles ;)

My first post here!

Tortured for uncounted days
Walking without rest
And the screams

Finally, the exit

Vlad was catching up on lost sleep after several nights on the village.
He woke briefly as the wooden stake was driven in.

Yes, I might not be well-adjusted or sane by any measure of the words, but that just means I have more options to work with.

The desperate screams and the rattling of chains were becoming a nightly incident... I'd have to sedate grandma again.
