Friday Flash Fiction

Is it still watching?
Is it still there?
Does it know?
Does it care?
She sent it to watch.
She sent it to spy.
I look out the window.
There in the sky!
Why does it taunt me?
Doesn’t it know that she had to die?
Now I sit here nightly staring at the sky,
as it watches with it’s big evil eye.

  1. I like it! Very well done! Here’s my link…enjoy! 🙂 http://theforgottenwife.com/2012/05/11/friday-fictioneers/

  2. Interesting interpretation. One of the few poetry contributions this week. I like that the narrator’s guilty conscience makes the watching moon a reflection of ‘his’ evil. Wish I had the courage to try poetry. Here’s mine: http://melodypearson.com/flash-fiction/friday-fictioneers-photo-prompt/

    sounds like someone’s guilty conscience is working overtime. I love poetry and would like to see more of it on Fridays.

    Thanks for your nice comment on mine.

    I like the undertone of obsession, of watching the sky each night. And who had to die…?!
    Ours is at http://www.lazuli-portals.com/flash-fiction/moon-and-sky (about 160 words)

    • His mother maybe? This one was the result of emptying my mind while staring at the picture, then writing what came to mind. Kind of me being a character medium. Lol.

  6. A nice expression of paranoia and guilt; the characterization of inanimate nature as something thinking and watching is always a powerful way to go. Nice job!

  7. Dear Amanda,

    Poetry under the full moon. Nicely done, sad and mysterious, too.

    Aloha,

  8. OooOOOOoooo… a guilty conscience and the definition of lunacy. Nice snapshot of madness.

    • Glad you enjoyed it! I thought of trying for the voice of a homeless man but couldn’t get my mind into it with all the scrambling I had to do this week.

      • It has been a nutty week! And who knows? Maybe the homeless man’s just hanging out, waiting for a different prompt.

  9. I know that moon! It’s she same one that shined through my window when I was small and would waken from the nightmare of being trapped in the museunm and the mummies came to life!
    poingnagt poem, well done! http://bridgesareforburning.wordpress.com/2012/05/10/howling-at-the-moon-flash-fiction-for-51112/#comments

  10. The way used a poetic format for the prompt was very effedtive–delightfully spooky.

  11. So as i read this I kept looking back at the prompt. And by the end the moon did look like an eye watching. Of course I also had my screen tilted up so it looked like dragon. I like how you laid heavy on the guilty like peanut butter. Your main character did something bad. I enjoyed it. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Here’s the link for others in case they haven’t blog hopped enough today: http://remakingme-atiyatownes.blogspot.com/2012/05/friday-flash-fiction-birthing.html

  12. I like the way you personalized such a cosmic event. It brings paranoia to new heights.

    Paranoia can do strange things to the mind. Loved this! Great job!

  14. Wonderful, reminds me of The Tell-Tale Heart by Poe. Can’t go wrong using guilt as a medium for paranoia.

  15. Oh, I love this. The Moon is casting down a life sentence, without time off for good behaviour. Poetic justice?

  16. Nice, Amanda. Not only does it watch, but it will follow you as well, steady, unyielding.
