Friday Word

As per Mona, the friday word is "Hide". I apparently have trouble doing that from this place, despite my last post about being away. Yes I am away in some ways and not in others.

Words…words…
Flowing in a torrent
Fingers dancing in a manic rhythm
Crystals formed from distillates of memories
Jagged edges penetrating consciousness
Mangled.. tangled into knots of hell
Words that wanted to hide
As he tried to form them
They no longer wanted to feel what he felt
That would be his lonesome burden to bear
From this day on there would be words no more
Leaving behind a silent cacophony…

surely, hell won't be a good place to hide .. why are you hiding? hiding is different than taking a break I guess .. i guess u wanna do the latter.
