Mirror

He looks into the mirror and asks - 'Do you wish to become a monster?'

The mirror pauses for a moment and then says - 'No, I'd rather remain a human being.'

It's interesting to note whom the question is for. At first glance, it does not become apparent.

Interesting enough. The more I write, the more I realize that you can convey far greater thoughts by writing as little as possible. The more you explain, the more you screw it up. Nice (Y)

I am reminded of your favorite statement... "Let ideas speak for themselves, not the words!" So little of words and still so much!

Piper, u are getting pretty good i'd say

Piper said...

The most amazing part of writing fiction is that often, different people take away different things and meanings from what have you written. This post is a great example of the same.

Hey Piper,

I am back! hehe. Don't worry this time, I will be civil.

Interesting... if you look at the mirror as the consciousness that most humans exercise within themselves.

But I guess I would just request to not call it fiction... its a snippet at the maximum. Not fiction!

Piper said...

Ya ya, its only a snippet. The thing is that everything that's not non-fiction can be classified as fiction. I'm sure you won't disagree there.

Welcome back! I am not sure about your not-going-to-kick-your-ass resolution though.
