“Writing exercise: write a small snippet using the word “Shape”, with any context you desire”.

August 2007 by Matthew Klein


Darkness strangled the world, a night as black as death overshadowed the streets accompanied by an eerie low hanging fog. The lights from the street signs and building windows were nothing but dark jagged shapes of steel and concrete barely noticeable as the gloom had set in, Only the smallest of ambient yellow light searched through the thick mist. Howling gusts of wind blew as a tin can rolled towards me slowly across the bitumen. I searched in to the darkness, waiting for what I could only assume was the end.
