And when the inverted demon began to speak to him in tongues, Billy’s tiny heart fluttered painfully to a halt - for he had been crying out to the devil all along.

“I regret my childhood was cut so short by my adulthood.”
Joseph DiFrancesco

“I love when truth is stranger than fiction. It authenticates my wild imagination.”
Joseph DiFrancesco

“Your life is not A story

But rather an assortment of small ones

Some endings are happy

Some, sad

Others - ironic

In some stories you are the hero

In others - the villain

Still others, a bit player - in someone else's saga

We all are but players

In story, after story, after story

Without being afforded one rehearsal or script

But collectively we share the hope

To bow out gracefully”

Well said. Interpretations abound. That's what I love about all artistic expression. I see art in life and life in art.

Thanks, Gina. It was just an observation on human nature - how throughout our lives we play many roles, some intentional, others not. We really don't know how we are perceived by others at times, no?

Glad you liked it, though. And thanks for friending up!
