Hello! Hello!

Welcome to PoeticalCondition's second Bi-monthly Prompt! I hope you are feeling creative.

This weeks prompt is: "Escalators"

Prompt is totally up to personal interpretation.

Please be sure to submit your work to the "Prompt" folder, and include the group name and current prompt in your author's comment.


The last prompt was "Technology"
It was difficult to choose my favorite submission, they were all very inventive takes on the theme.
However, I chose:
One Possible EndA thousand billion minds join in rapture,
their goal at hand, the end of adventure!
As endless circuits initiate,
countless deities they now negate.
No more need do they,
for tales of dragons and Fae.
No more wishes, hopes, and dreams,
For now, of destiny, they weave the seams.
Into one mind does a collection of consciousness go,
And with them the extensive works of Einstein, Gandhi, and Poe.
To create something they worshiped so dear,
and bring about a fabled Utopia near.
And the universe will stand still;awed.
When man combined, equates to God.
and face full of bluei wag my finger
in front of your eyes

i'm nearly certain
you're unaware
what B.S. O.S. you're running
"You hurt me.
You left bruises
on my flesh and heart."
i peel back the layers of skin
bruised with finger prints
as you gawk with a calloused curiosity
while my heart cowers
in the corner of my ribs
hiding from the over exposure
i watch my words
crash into your face
and slide down your screen
as the l.c.d. flickers
"That doesn't compute,"
you respond-
cold and uncaring
here i thought machines
might learn to love
and maybe that's why
you tried so hard
to make me stop caring
for everyone but you
possession, submission,
ownership -
all words in your bank
but your robot speak
doesn't appeal to me
the way it used to
- the processed lines
manufactured and spewed
directly on cue
with all those numbers
and words
give me figures -
lines, measurements, graphs
and tell me what you've left
when something you thought
was yours says,

I look forward to seeing what you come up with this week. =)

Happy writing!
