Friday 55 Flash: Lost

Blue Demon Jr

You don't go crazy
You go to sleep
When you open your eyes
When you get up and dress
The nightmare doesn't stay under your pillow
It gets up with you and follows you around

 You're stuck somewhere
Between awake and asleep
Where you can't run from the demons
Where you can't scream them away

 ~From "Blue Harbor" by Nara Malone

  1. well now...that was like a cold slap of reality there....yep they tend to follow you around all day poking their heads up...mine does not look like a lucha libre though...smiles.

  2. That last stanza is chilling...stuck and lost ~

  3. Is that Ray Mysterio Jr?
    That would be a very disturbing!!!
    Not your usual erotic stuff, but it's your usual creative brilliance.
    Loved your 55 Nara Malone...
    Thanks for the awesome entertainment.
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. ...it doesn't stay under your pillow! Love that. Very nice 55.

  5. I love it but it kinda scares me as well.

  6. The sense of menace is almost as strong as the sense of loss of control--and the illustration is quite an archetype--it could be something from an Aztec wall carving of murder and sacrifice as easily as a modern face. Chilling--my favorite thing.

  7. Nightmares in daytime - nasty!

  8. The picture prompt and your 55 gave me the sense of urgency and despair. Awesome work!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work. Have you a blessed weekend. hugs shakira
    Mine is here

  9. So tough to live in a nightmare, but I guess we all have. You capture this well.

  10. I've had those type of nightmares, the ones where you wake up but yet you don't really know if you are awake or not because the dream is still with you and so real... Yikes.

  11. Between awake and asleep can be an awful place or a wonderful one, depending on the dream/nightmare!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
