Strange Beginning and Odd Endings

Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: Odd

I cannot  wake up

I cannot fall asleep

I feel like I am drowning on dry land

and if that is true there is probably a shark

watching me from behind a rock


a ghostly Pirate’s ship floating above my head – with a murderous thieving crew

watching me from the deck

waiting to strike

me dead.


We are on dry land and the rules of normal do not apply

to a world

where nothing makes sense and everything is Odd

and I am sure that Shark knows I am drowning, it knows I am weak.

It is  going to eat me.

I am sure of it.

If the Pirates don’t get me first.

Because I cannot wake up

and I cannot  fall asleep.
