acting as if

Just having a bit of fun with the wonderful words chosen by @wordoftheday on instagram. I used their words that they chose for the past 15 days to write the story snippet below….

Here’s their words: newel, renowned, monolith, integument, panache, furtive, whimsical, repository, array, tread, impend, acrophobia, demarcate, obliterate, enthrall

And here’s the story that I wrote using them. Can you find where all 15 words are located in the story below…..

“Acting as if”

it had all seemed
so easy
enthralled by the claims
of the renowned experts
in a burst of inspiration
she ventured forth
attempting to leap
across the demarcation line
between phobia
to fading fears
“acrophobia no more”
she muttered to herself
as she clung
to the wobbly
newel
the single rusty post
that secured the spiral staircase
the rusty post
that was her lifeline
as she tried to sidestep
her monolith
of terror
by forcing out
a whimsical tune
from the back
of her throat
as the sweat
beaded
and slipped
down
her integument
rolling down
between the cleavage
of her chest
she acted as if
she was ok
she acted as if
she was just fine
she tried
a stance
of panache
as she climbed
attempting
a half-hearted
carefree tread
but with one furtive
glance downward
as the wind shook
and the metal rattled
and screeched
and screamed
an array
of possible horrors
sprung up
and her mind
became a repository
of terrors
and her
faked
confidence
crumbled
plummeting
down
down
down
off the side
of the railing
obliterating all hope
plummeting down
into a sense
of impending doom
quickly
she made
one
more
resolution
resolving
never
ever
ever
ever
to
make
another
resolution
again
