Flash 55 - Against

       ~ click image to make biggerer ~

What’s behind that ancient door you have shut
against the world,
against me,
against yourself?

Can you feel the thick blackness pushing
against the raveling hinges,
against the rusting locks,
against the corners of your mind?

Will you fight like a berserker
against the enveloping depression,
against the suffocation,
against your desire to be nothing?

Write a story in exactly 55 words.

The G-Man "Mr. Know-It-All" is our intrepid host.
Visit him and give him a tickle.

Merry Meet and Blessed Be


  1. all too real you know...i know a few you just captured really well..smiles.

  2. Nicely done. And now I'm thinking the word "berserker" is one you don't hear nearly often enough.
