Deepfake Tribulation

Posted in Flash Fiction, writing with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2019 by dustus

Whiskey-shooting away professional tormenting failure, The Plaintiff, slipped fumbling sideways off a sky-high cliff.  Your Honor, his fractured ego denied having been pushed!  As if privacy exists in our defamatory deepfake world.  Consequently, it took many arduous years of gradual rehabilitation before self-loathing dried and creative fire reemerged furiously brighter than The Defendants’ life-threatening malice.

Sometimes it takes the worst despair
To unearth what’s in your heart
Enduring pain rekindles flames
From sparks to raging hot

And sometimes it takes all you got
Rising up from grief
Getting through with faith renewed
Then letting go in peace
