Lounge – Six Sentence Story

Demons love to lounge and blame and curse beneath a pretty sky.

With ugly words they seek to maim. Demons love to lounge and blame. Avoid them when they’re taking aim. Reject the shameless words that fly.

Demons love to lounge and blame and curse beneath a pretty sky.


Denise offers the prompt word “lounge” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories. As a poem I posted this on Poet’s Corner.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Nice bit of poetry, Frank. Brings to mind those individuals who, for whatever reason, feel as if hurting another will somehow make themselves feel better. Best to walk away, and not get caught in the crossfire of their barbs.

    1. Good point about putting on the full armor mentioned in Ephesians. Thank you, Mimi!

      I enjoyed your descriptive story of a restless night wonderfully filled with prayer. In Jesus’ name may all the illnesses you described be healed.


  2. very cool Six*

    *not only the ‘content’ but the style. It’s no secret how much we like the ‘way of saying’ as much as the ‘what of saying’
    ok… I’m not sure, but I’m hoping the correct rhetorical device here is ‘anaphora’ rather than repetition. Mostly ’cause ‘anaphora’ sounds more bad-assed
