FFfAW – Boneyard Bustle

Buried beneath a boneyard of battered tombstones lies hordes of insomniacs that clatter through their stretched coracles.  Open eyes and empty mouths remain ingrained to their one-manned vessel while they should be traveling the tributary to hereafter, but inhumane mock mourners fancied Charon’s obol too overpriced to inhume.

I can still hear the hum of hamstrung hopefuls: murmurs of eager souls.  Restlessness resumes even after a formal curtain call if relatives leave residue from roguish relationships unresolved: irresolution to vocalize merciful verbiage in a favorable vein.  Oblivious people speak a hostile vernacular comparable to Narcissus himself, at least until their retributive day.

Speak honestly.

Speak openly.

Few claim to be clairvoyant.

    1. Ha, no worries! It didn’t come off negative at all! Even if it did, it’s not a big deal. I wouldn’t get upset over negative comments, but I’ve seen you enough around WordPress to know better. Feel free to be as sarcastic as you want here (;

  1. A very creative and dark use of the picture. In a way, this reminded me of Corpse Bride by Tim Burton/ Mike Johnson and the Underworld below the Land of the Living.

      1. You are most welcome 🙂 I am fascinated by writing techniques and most don’t get used enough today, so when I see some fine writing like yours, well I celebrate 😀 Keep it up!
