      A long arm reached through the window of my car. I was too scared to scream. The hand grabbed at me. I struggled to pull away. I scrambled to get out the other door. As I reached for the door handle, the long arm grabbed at my legs. I was panicking. The other door didn't seem to want to open. I tried to scream, but only gasps escaped from my dry throat. The fear was too much. I knew I was going to be killed if I couldn't get out the other side of the car. It seemed like forever, but I got the door opened. The long arm kept coming after me. I pulled away, and jumped out of the car. Still in a panic I ran. Finally, I was able to scream. I heard a noise off in the distance. It sounded like a fire alarm. If I could get there, I could find help. The sound was getting closer, and closer. I must be almost there, I thought. I kept running, and running, but couldn't seem to find the source of the sound. I was confused. Where was that sound coming from? I stopped, looked around, and I could still hear it. I wasn't any closer, even though I felt like I had ran for miles. Beep, beep, beep, beep, kept ringing in my ears.  Beep, beep, beep....

    A long time ago, she fell in love with a mysterious dark-haired man.

    In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn.
    Prettiest woman you ever laid eyes on.
    But a man of low degree stood by her side,
    and he promised he would take her for his bride.

    Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on?
    Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
    Did I hear you say he was meeting you hear today
    to take you to his mansion in the sky?

    Hi mts1098,
    thanks for rattling the few remaining grey cells. A few thoughts?

    A long drop to the end of the rope.

    A long way back from the edge of insanity.

    A long way from oblivion but oh so near disaster.

    A long low sleek smooth single bubble bonnet is how I describe the front of my classic E-Type Jaguar and then I awake and have breakfast.

    A long annoying complicated account number but oh so stuffed with riches.

    A long way till I run out of thoughts but I'll stop now.

    Thanks for the poser,

    MJ.
