FOWC with Fandango — Repress


He stood gazing in reverence as the golden light bathed his face.

He had done something he had been meaning to do for many years.

He had finally cleared away the dust of the past. He had been meaning to renovate that dingy old house. It was full of memories that he no longer wanted to repress, but they were part and parcel of who he was.

Instead, he’d decided to torch the place.

He couldn’t help admire the beauty of that wonderful bonfire as it engulfed his past and delivered him from his own private hell.

The policeman put an arm around his shoulders and lead him back to the car with its blue flashing lights. He wasn’t afraid of the consequences, his memories had held more fear than anything he was likely to face and he was free of them now.

Fire is cleansing.

Multiple Word Prompt Poem – Wild Child

In that dingy dell,
A fiend from hell,
Has made his home,
Amidst the gloam.
Ephemeral smoke,
that makes you choke,
billows from under that door,
you’re scared to open and discover more.
There in the gloom,
Of that dank, dark room,
Full of angst and hate,
Is that teenage reprobate,
Your once adorable child,
their emotions running wild.
