Friday 9/25/09 - "NIGHTMARE"


FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55


"NIGHTMARE"

Midnight nightmare found me inside an active alcoholic's brain.
To the right - masses of twisted tissue of guilt, shame, remorse, dread, despair.

To the left - locked compartments, no apparent keys, filled with problems of love, jobs, finances, health.
Total confusion and denial reigned.

My eyes opened and brilliant light entered my sane mind. Thank God.

Your 55 words are always so inspiring to this AA "newbie". Thank you for the reminder that G-d is always there to help us sort it all out.

Take a gander at my 55 for the week.
