When you knock on the door of a vacant home, silence will ensue.

The man started running away, and a chasing ensued, with the detective and his friend in pursuit. The criminal thought that he was invincible, and he would never be caught, but he’d underestimated the detective. The detective tricked him, and he accidentally ran right into a trap. They caught the thief.

The fight that ensued was terrifying. They were yelling and screaming and throwing things at each other. My brother and I cowered underneath the dining room table, and I covered his mouth to keep him from whimpering. We didn’t want mom or dad to see us, especially when they were both drunk.

I hope that this doesn’t ensue our break up. I’ve always been the jealous type, and I hate seeing you with her. I know that we’re together, but still. She’s known you so much longer. Even if I wasn’t jealous, why do you even like me? Is it because I’m smart and pretty? Those aren’t reasons, those are just characteristics of myself. I feel like you don’t know me and that really sucks. I just don’t know what to do, to be honest. I really like you. Hell, I love you. And that, it means a lot to me. Love. So please, please stop saying it like you don’t know what it means.

what ensued, still rang crisp
in her memory halls.
the train crumpled like a bad love poem
that missed a wastebasket in hopeless

And they talk about a perfect world
where leaves fall like sprinkles
and snow melts like frosting
And those are the only things that will fall
And those are the only things you will feel
And they project on the signs
swirly letters of vulgar rhymes
They say this is necessary
They say that war cannot ensue

I really don’t even like this word and I don’t know. What the hell ensues? Hilarity ensues. Trouble ensues. I feel like this is a really, really ugly word. I don’t even like hearing the sound of it in my own head. Ensue. There are so many other better words that mean the same thing. This one just seems like a puss.
By Karen on 04.30.2013
“All kinds of trouble will ensue if you pursue this ‘plan,’ if that’s what you want to call it. How can you expect me to support this kind of decision?”
“But after the trouble burns itself out, happiness, peace, and security will follow. That’s what we’ve always wanted isn’t it? That’s what we’ve spent our lives trying to achieve? Help me, Miriam. Take this risk. Yes, life is going to be awful for a while. Maybe a long while. But this story will have a happy ending. I promise.”

There once was a man, for the purposes of this story, his name was Adam. Adam loved to go on adventures, and never shied away from one. That would explain why in 2004, he chose to go the mountains. The trip that ensued was one he will never forget.
By Adam on 04.30.2013
The ensuing onslaught of unkind words was more than she could bear. She had no other choice, truly. The only recourse left to her by this utter nincompoop, was to curtly nod her head in his direction and wish him better luck in finding her replacement.

A sudden burst of anger ignited my body, standing against the chilly air. Catching my breath, tranquility ensued, and my felt myself lean against the stone wall.

Standing here in the dark. Lonely and waiting for something good to happen. Like the breaking dawn after a burst of starlight. If only the clouds would blow away in the wind.

what does this word mean
“happen or occur afterward or as a result”
well things ensue from every single action
everything has a consequence or a success
or a lesson afterwards.

The embarrassment that ensued was unavoidable. First kisses were always awkward but it was made worse when said kiss resulted in one of the two parties falling over a trashcan as a direct result of the first knocking him over.
By Foshizzlebeth on 04.30.2013
And so it ensues.
“Ensue” sounds like such a great beginning. I would love the story of my life to start like this. It sounds adventurous, courageous, epic.
It sounds like a starting point that leads to wonderful things, hard times, or both, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
By NightOwl on 04.30.2013
It was just one simple action. Who knows, maybe she didn’t have the intent of crushing my heart. But my emotions were now scarred, and today was the sad depressing day, when I couldn’t call her my best friend anymore. I felt the gaping whole inside of me, as my now biased thoughts turned everything she said into something I hated. The delicious taste of our friendship was now spoiled.

After the death of her father, she couldn’t take it anymore. Storming into his building, clomping up his stairs, slamming open his door, and cocking his gun, she held the barrel up against his head.
“You have already raped me, hurt my family, and killed my father. What more do you want?”
“Nothing,” he replied, calmly removing the gun from her shaking hands and pressing her up against the desk. “Nothing but what I have already claimed as mine.”
With that, his bittersweet lips were pressed against hers.

I ensued on a journey to vast lands of cold grasses wet with dew. I evolved into a flower form, peaceful at the time of my embarkment. My head felt like it was swelling, as though I were in a dream. My body felt lean and tall, like a stem.

No one knew what chaos would ensue. Particularly John, who thought it was his mother at the door.

Where Joan went, trouble was sure to ensue. Just the other day, what started as a harmless handshake escalated into a big catastrophe involving a watermelon, two baseballs, and a stray dog.

we are (selfishly) blinded
previous to any action
no thoughts cross our galaxy minds
in our entire universe
seldom do we see

And so it ensued. We had never expected it to happen. Not as fast as it did, anyways. Our parents had promised us at least a good 5 or ten years before the overthrow would begin. Enough time for many of us to create a family or even make it away from the dreaded place we have been forced to call home.

I push my eyes in with the palms of my hands. The result is pleasing enough, my head feels more solid; I’m less squishy and fragile. I want to fix all problems like that, with a little force, a little push and shove.
By genahtastic on 04.30.2013
i follow you with my eyes
smile when you grab my hand
and rush me down the hallway
i text you after school
(only because you’ve previously initiated conversations)
and hold onto every exclamation point
cross-examine your periods
with your spaces
hope that i’m overthinking disappointment
and truly reading excitement
with each push of a phone letter key
wanting something more to ensue
By sevenwords on 04.30.2013
In the ensuing fracas she gave no thought to where she was going. She just wanted to get out of there. After believing for a long time that nothing would happen to her she was shocked to find herself in the middle of such a drama. As

I was ensued by the fact that I had to go to school today. I had to deal with thinking and work and teachers and crap; I was then put in an awful mood.

The chase ensued, winding through alleyways and streets. The nimble child dodged and evaded the grabbing hands of adults as he ran with his snatched fruit. Tonight, they would eat.

Like tumbling blocks, the world falls one moment after another.
A snowball downhill
A hurricane lost to the winds
A child in the throws of a tantrum
everything has a consequence.
By James B on 04.30.2013
or gaurantee it doesn’t really matter just as long as you make it happen. Call it what you will but it is still your responsibility, don’t even doubt that at this moment there is any leeway to me not putting you completely and utterly in charge of this situation

what will ensue, enter the bakery with dusty shoes, run your fingers along the glass that hangs above the rainbow cookies, the black and whites, the snow powder icebergs that drizzle when you prod them.

Let it enfold you. So it will ensue. Guitar laying over there under my tv. I don’t like this game. Doesn’t have anything to do with anything. I’m not thinking about it. My fingers hurt. I can’t feel my keys anymore. This sucks. Shake it out, shake it out. God I need another and another and another and another I could feel it now, I felt alone in my fathers house.
By Ashley on 04.30.2013
What will ensue…
when the world feels like its over?
when I can’t move on?
when the flowers don’t grow?
when the sun doesn’t shine?
Hopefully this is a day I won’t know,
a day when beauty refuses to show.

Gahhh, it is so hard to write as someone else sometimes. I’m not a robot, and trying to think like one is going to drive me insane.
As I traveled across the lawn of the park, my lenses could not help but spot the newest technology for search-processors. Though, as essential as this processor is, the need for the advertisement to contain an android woman with curves no natural biological being could recreate is something I find unnecessary.
By A.C. Rooks on 04.30.2013
What would ensue, I wondered? Would things go the way I wanted them to? No way to know. But I had to try. Something. I had to try something. There was no way I could sit still.
I walked to the front of the room, took a deep breath, and looked around at the people behind the dais, people who were really no different than me.
By KenS on 04.30.2013
each thing you do ensues another. you don’t always know what it will ensue, but you know it will certainly ensue something. this doesn’t mean you must live you’re life carefully or safe, it encourages us to take risks, not be so worrisome. we must live or lives carefuly, but not too careful. we must remember to have fun sometimes, not always worrying what it will ensue. learn to live in the moment and you will be happy, although I cannot ensue that
