Tell your 55 Word Story

55 Word Story



Frightened, nervous and still excited
Hoping, dreaming
Everything will turn out good
People watching
I am singing, acting
Remembering advice
Curtains close
Feeling relieved

Back on stage
Almost dying
People watching
I am singing, acting
Enjoying attention
People laughing
Applause

Actors kissing, hugging
Feeling great
Director happy

******************************
Dreaming, crying
All feelings gone
Missing actors
Farewell...

"Ik weet dat wij ons erdoor slaan, dat we zij aan zij blijven staan
Tot alle stormen zijn verstomd en er een nieuwe lente komt
En alles weer begint van voor af aan..."

Over the years, dogs had dogs that had dogs, so that there were always pups in season. The best we tried to rear by pampering, but ironically died just as easily from pampering as from neglect. The worst were given away or eventually met their demise under the patronage of fleas or inconspicuous puppy vulnerabilities.

It was really hard to get it down to 55 words. Although some words you think you need and then you get rid of them and find that it still works.

Being closeted is knowing half the people who love you wouldn't if they knew, and it hurting like hell when someone says gay and means stupid and you're paralyzed, but the alternative is having those eyes follow you like you aren't human but a spectacle as you're the same as yesterday- not to them.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

Wow you guys. That's kind of deep.

I did 2 "stories", but I'm afraid they're rather shallow, lol. Just trying to be funny.
Ah well: here they are.

WTAworld: world full of egos-- big, ugly egos, always trying to outdo one another, be it in knowledge about tennis, politics, or war… or in writing stories of exactly 55 words. Pathetic egos too: searching desperately for the unobtainable assurance that one is liked, loved, popular…

But
I, dearest Majo, am not one of those!

Fifty-five Words


Fifty-five Words (title included):

“Write me,” she said, “a story
of five and fifty words
It ’s not only for nerds!
Please try: you won’ t be sorry…”

But that I dare to doubt:
I ’m sorry to confess here
That I ’m (no more, no less, dear)
A nerd – There! now I 'm out...




(Note: I counted "I'm" and "it's" and "won't" as 2 words)

People typing on their keyboards, their eyes staring at words forming on a screen. Still there’s real people behind those pixels. People scattered all over the world. Tennis brought them together in the first place, but soon some became more than just fellow tennis fans. And that’s the magic about this virtual place. Ain’t it?

lost

dreaming, daring to be more than those that came before
working, trying, fighting to be me - to find me
succeeding, yet failing; graduating, yet faltering
lost, adrift and wondering where i could be
hopes, dreams and aspirations fading faster daily
what will the future hold
and will i be brave enough to venture forth

Fifty five words. That's all I have to write. Fuck! Why fifty five? I can't even think of twenty. I just saw my dog humping a cow. That should count for a couple more words. Maybe I'm a slut. But maybe not. I lack sex. I want sex. I might hump that cow. Go figure
