I am entering this 100 word essay for a friend of mine. I have told her in the past, how beautiful her writing is and so I’m taking the initiative and without her permission and posting her 100 Words. This great piece of writing needs to be in Velvet Verbosity and so I’m doing it. Hopefully it will spur my friend Laura to enter her work on a regular basis, she is a superb writer.
I never knew black could be so , well, BLACK. I mean, I have worn black clothing, eaten black food, driven black cars and even , I am ashamed to admit it, appeared in blackface….. But never ever experienced a black this dense, this thick, this so purely without color or light. This is not the soft, caressing black of a velvet summers night nor the ” char-cold” black of a January midnight frost. This is not the black of sleep, nor the black of sorrow…No this is Black without end, without comfort, without sadness. Heavy. Grim. Chilling.Terrifying. Just black……
