Miles Away From Nowhere


I am one of the original Ficletters, way back when Ficlets was on AOL.

Then when there was no where to go, I headed of to Protagonize, nice community, but I couldn't get in the swing of things over there, and then all of a sudden, there was an announcement that a baby Ficlets, Ficly, was born! We were there for a good many years, but alas, some good things must come to an end...

Then, a nice fellow, started Ficlatte. THANK GOODNESS!!

I appreciate the hard work that was put into starting this site here - hopefully that will stay longer than the other two sites.

I am Brebelles,{LoA} League of Awesomeness - Saint Smiley. ^.^

I usually write poetry, but I do spin out the occasional story here and there.

My poetry began back in 2006/2007, mostly 2007 when a very dear friend had passed. I was young, she was close to my heart and I needed to get my feelings out... some way some how.

I love constructive criticism, so please comment, comment, comment!

In the dead of night,

She packed her bags,

Off to far away she went,

Without a sound - she's gone.

Hopped on her bike,

Which she rode for many year,

Old, tired, used and a bit wobbly,

On her way in a sea of stars in a dark sky.

She went for hours without stopping,

Without eating and without sleeping,

Toward her dream, and toward her future,

Away from everything she has ever known...

And with a breath,

Her heart stopped,

As she thought of what she had just done...

Can't go back now - they know by now...

The sun is rising,

Slowly in the sky,

Her family is too,

Always at the crack of dawn.

Her mom is crying,

Her dad stoic,

Her siblings - shocked.

Its done... can't go back...

As the sun reaches the highest point,

She reaches a place where she can see it,

The city.

Her destination.

Just a few more hours,

She thinks,

And I'll be there,

I'm almost there...

Little note about grammar: you'll need "took a breath", rather than "took a breathe". Breathe is the verb; breath is the noun.

Inspired by (sequel to):

There once was a girl,

Who loved her family,

To the depths of the ocean,

And to the top of the heigh…
