  2. Me and my sister were in that blackout in New York. Girl, the cops just started shootin’ everyone! We were dodgin’ and duckin’ and there were bullets whizzin’ all around us! They thought we were the Son of Sam.

  3. There was a blackout in my neighborhood the other night. I know it doesn’t seem like it would be hard to get through, but it was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. I’m guessing it’s because i’ve always been afraid of the dark. This problem has been around since i was a child. I’m the youngest of three boys.

  4. So.. blackout means a lot of things to a lot of people. If you didn’t pay your electric bills black out means they’re on to you. If you are clumbsy black out means you fell down. If you drink too much… well… you know what it means.

  5. It was difficult to understand what went wrong that Friday night. Though, it being another night in Scranton, Pa, with the college children running around in some awkward game of tag, the blackout was easy to understand. The source still has not been discovered but Clay Ave is likely the culprit, as the most college students were concentrated in that area around the start of the widespread darkness, 10 p.m.

  6. blackout. always makes me think of theatre. cue at the end of a scene. Sudden. harsh. Very different from fade to black. The difference between sudden death and long, lingering.

  7. I once had a blackout at a party I was at. I think someone slipped me something, or maybe I was abducted by aliens. I’m not sure. But it was memorable.

  8. i lost my fingerprints
    when i traced the street’s
    yellow pulse,
    stroking it like the belly of a snake
    i am too scared to swallow.

  9. Damn. Another blackout. Musta been, ’cause I don’t remember those curtains, or that couch, or the tattooed man sleeping next to me. He’s wearing a wife-beater that’s probably never met soap and water. Neither has his face.

  11. If the black is out then the light is inside. By keeping the darkness at bay, we can truly cultivate a more true inner spirit, and show our true spiritual selves to the world.

    As spiritualists, we must keep darkness and negativity at bay.

  12. I am in heaven,
    I sit without knowledge,
    without existence,
    No memories,
    no sadness,
    not worrying,
    just bliss.

  13. he stared straight ahead of him.

    except he couldn’t see anything.

    he felt out of place.


    quietly wishing it wasn’t dark.

    quietly wishing that he was /home/

  14. one word is all you need to get a conversation started. You would be surprised what one could accomplish by mentioning just one word.

  15. The lights have all died, leaving me alone in the dark. I silently rise from my bed, unsure of my footing, and fumble around in my desk to find a candle. Once located, I search vainly for matches. Remembering that I used the last match yesterday, I sit in the dark and relax.

  16. The blackout caused a horrific accident that ruined the life’s of many who were involved. The only positive result was the peace that one family felt due to the lack of disturbing phone calls they regularly received.

  17. I have to think of New York city power outages. I’ve never experienced anything like it. We lost power once in Ruidoso for almost 24 hrs. It was a little scary, but cool at the same time because it was so quiet and dark. I don’t think that quiet is usually associated with a blackout, but it is just amazing how much background noise goes away when the electricity goes out.

  19. one night there was a man and he was trapped in a small house, although there was one cat no noise came from him. the lights suddenly darkened. the cat spoke.

  20. We had gone to bed, some resting outside, some inside. We were talking among ourselves. Suddenly blink! The lights disappeared! I opened the door and looked outside. Silence. Then a door opened. Rooms 10 and 12 came to life. I went out into the night. It was mostly the men that had gathered, wondering what happened to the power. The women in our entourage were safely ensconced in their beds, not caring much about the blackout.

  21. darkness… nothing… blank and void. the contrast of what could be or might be the wholeness in nothing. the without, empty… blackout

  22. very black, no light, i cant see anything. Remote control cars, making ramps. Getting the candles out, can’t see anything, we play monopoly by the candles. We go too sleep, wake up and its light agian

  23. Blackout: Obviously an omen; Barack Obama is bad for America. BLACK OUT!! The man’s a joke, he’s just like Will Smith, only with power. Americans are fucktards.

  24. The sky went dark. The land went dark. The air felt dark. Not a light was to be seen. No sound filled the air. No sigh nor whisper. No laughter or sob. No dream was unturned, no nightmare unbroken.

  25. it was a dark night to begin with, before the power went out. But now it was pitch, tar, coal black, a black so deep not a single shard of light made it to the cornea of the eye. And yet it was a warm dark, the dark of mid-july when thunderstorms raged and people sat inside their air-conditioned houses and watched their gardens flood.

  26. the blackout of the city caused not quite what we would call a commotion. it was quiet for once. and from what i believe, everyone who witnessed it was astonished. and for once, the citizens were silenced. everyone stood around silent, staring at something so surreal.

  27. last night. something I’ve been doing too often lately. I want answers of what happens during them. I wish I knew more, I really do. I hate phone calls during these when I can tell someone said something stupid and I can’t remember what they said. I just want my memory back, I don’t know why I keep giving it away. I deserve it.
