A to Z Challenge Acrostic Poem: TEMULENCE
Definition: intoxication

T   They was no way around it it’s done

E   Evangelina had his heart he is now intoxicated in a less traditional way

M   Moonlight strolls and four hour conversations have never been this effortless in the history of time

 Unable and unwilling to give that up he had succumbed

L   Lately he had come to accept that without her

E   Every passion she awakened was headed back to obscurity with him in tow

 Not one to reverse his fortune he resisted fading back into the background

C   Conscious choice brought him to complete surrender

E   Every living breathing part of him was titillated by her presence

B  Belligerent should be his given name he was referred to as such often enough

L  Lived to make them bigger

I  In the past when he had a girl he had tried not to be overly aggressive for her sake

C  Continually trying to pull back on his reaction to things and sticking to it was hard thinking about consequences and end results was not how he was wired

O  Officially he was supposed to be working on it he was incapable of looking at things all the way through to the other side

Since the last time he completely lost it people that he truly cared about were hurt and disappointed in him

E  Ever since his dad passed there was no one saying – boys will be boys anymore – reigning it in was now up to him




Scoundrels and Madness


On my car radio this morning there was this story..a blurb actually.

A young woman went out on a blind date with someone she met on the internet. After the date they went back to her apartment. She went into another room for something and when she came back her TV and her Dog was gone. In reporting this to the police she didn’t even know his last name.

I’d say she was lucky!!. What is going on out there????

We keep expecting monsters to look like monsters!!
