Hollow Reality #flash fiction

The room was filled with smiling faces
Each appeared so sincere
Every eye filled with laughter
“Why do I feel out-of-place?” she wondered
It seemed every where she went she never belonged
Then by chance she happened to see a placard on her way out
“leave your masks at the door when you leave!”

Thanks to G-Man @ http://g-man-mrknowitall.blogspot.com ( sorry my hyperlink isnt working)who always throws a great party over at his place. Bring your words  no more than 55 tho. Masks are optional

  1. Ha…Leave your masks at the door. Good advice that we should all take. My mask was getting stinky and ill fitting anyway. I like the freedom I have now that I removed it and tucked it away.


  2. Look at you MDW…
    All cooly written and twisty at the end.
    Most Excellent piece of mico-fiction.
    Loved YOUR 55 My Friend.

  3. Very good, Leslie! Long time since being here, it still feels like home, though–grin! I like this. Good words for those signs outside (Protestant, of course–grin!!!!) churches. Also other churches, BTW!
    “Come one, Come all.


  4. Truth be told it’s been a little bit since I swung through old friend, but I’m loving the new style to the blog. Dark yet sleek theme to the background.

    Lovely 55 to a great photo! It seems that all of life is a masquerade at times…
