  1. things start to ensue when things go wrong. I’ve never really heard ensue written in a positive light. It could be though.
    “Well, he bought me dinner, we had fun, and then we went to my apartment and hot things ensued.”
    No one would ever talk like that though.

  2. The letters i wrote to him let the whole thing die. I didn’t know why I wrote them to him and then all of a sudden chaos ensued. If only i had let them burn in the fire. If only I had just let them slip from my mind, then maybe none of this would have happened and all would be quiet.

  3. All the chaos that ensued after that moment will haunt me forever. The touch of his hand and the smell of the air in that very second when I realized he would never fully be mine. It’s unforgettable. It’s painful but I long for it still.

    Who knows what’s going to come next? And who cares? We’re just standing here, not worrying about it, and we feel perfectly fine.

  15. The world was a blank grey. It could envelop the total sky in its cloud as it swirled high above the ground. Two pairs of light blue eyes made their way up to stare at the oncoming storm.

  17. I had dream we shared a hug, but then we lingered
    Drew closer, and our heightened proximity led to small kisses
    The emotion that flowed from those silent moments —
    It was always love that ensued, despite everything that shouldn’t be
    It goes beyond simple attraction, or so it has always felt to me
    But that was just a dream
    And the reality is hard truth
    Because there are never soft landings
    In matters such as these

  20. After dragons gorge on our guts, our armored legs strewn around like chicken bones, there comes the ensuing torchwork–a dozen rallied dragons making elaborate burnt labyrinths of our castle, our homes, our farms. My sword far behind me, along with my arm, I marvel into bloodied mud that no one has managed to decipher the pattern. Til now. It makes so much sense to my drooping eyes… Of course, a story, a moral… The ending right before us…

  22. The first blow rang out, steel on steel, and after a second of silence, the battle ensued. Metal screeched against itself as sword met ax, ax met halberd, and shields bashed together. The cries of the dying joined it before too long, and tin the end, all sat silent. One man standing.

  23. I had this word yesterday, but that’s okay. A bugged bugbear bites your brow. Hilarity ensues. You’ll have to put a bandage on it, but your dad took all the bandages and used them for his sculpture for the Annual Medical Object Sculpture Conference.

  24. we are at war again. his words ring in my ear as the bombs drop around me. “chin up, don’t look back, keep your eyes on them.” and for just a fleeting moment, the cuts on my arms seem to dissolve into thin air, and i can finally ignore the pulsating red sky.

  25. On the battlefield, love ensued. Wasn’t that what it was? People drove sharp implements into each other and blood, the liquid of passion, spurted out, a flowering red. Soldiers bellowed, passionately, and then were silenced, by peaceful sleep. And when it was all over you could see the ravages of love, thousands of bodies littering the ground, vultures attracted to the stench welling up like a warm thermal.

    By Holden URL on 05.01.2013

    no sign of stopping

  29. Silence, nervousness, and frustration ensued after the close call. We were interrupted and almost caught in the act, yet it was so thrilling. I could almost hear our hearts thumping furiously as we fumbled with our phones to pretend we were just hanging out. I swear we were mentally laughing at ourselves for the fails.

    Some would call this youth, some would call this foolishness. I call it love.

  32. Hmmm. Well, what ensues from a given situatioN? I think panic ensues when there’s a school shooter. I think joy ensues (usually) when someone is pregnant. I think that agner ensues when kids don’t get the grades they want. Ensue is interesting–wy teh relation to “sue”? Doe stha tmean follow? I like it; an interesting word. It would be neat to write a sory about a woman named Sue.

    ensue is one of those words thats simple enough to make people think you’re smart but also one that most people can understand.

  39. She looked me in the eyes, telling me again and again that nothing bad was going to happen. That no one would step out of this with something missing.
    And I believed her.
    I believed her until she left me.
    And then I missed her.
    And then she was no more.
    With her was my heart, broken and torn from my chest, that was what I was missing, too.

  40. There are always consequences to any decision. These are the risks we take each and every day. What is on the line? Too often, misperceived fears guide us and we lose sight of what positive results are to ensue.
