These Ficly scribblings are hardly fickle, sometimes fictional, and often based on actual events, but rarely told exactly as they actually occurred. Strap in and prepare to follow narrative bread crumbs down a rabbit hole deeper into my mad mind than most have dared to tread.

Stories

  1. Wayward Embraces

  4. Lunar Flare

    I stay cool cause I make moves in the dark, staying in a shadow you may as well think I’m shady… but don’t say it son. I’m so hot that when the sun looks at me it gets dimmer. Try not to get burned ‘cause I got that fire a...

  5. Just A Glimpse

  6. Careful What You Ask For

  7. Miniscule & Untied Yet Massive & United

  10. Row, Row, Row Your Boat

  11. Between Sinking & Swimming

    Some things don’t change. New country, but same state: Just out of range. Could I be feeling fate? My love for understanding unfamiliar surroundings, keeps me embracing what’s most challenging. They say we learn from each mistake, so I keep...

  12. Blackouts and Other Minor Malfunctions

  16. Bleeding Hope

    Some nights… I want to cut out my heart because it sounds so sad beating all by itself. One rhythm of two, echoing only loneliness, again. Then I start to think, maybe i ought to drink… until my tears fall, in to my alcohol. Yet, since I...

  18. Eager Hamster Escapes the Wheel

    Time…If it were a river could you get to the head without letting it become the tail from another perspective? Is it possible to catch the future and prevent it from becoming the past? What if we could transform it into a lake? Make it a prominen...

  19. The Little Things In Life

    Savoring papercuts on still nights with slow-toned music and soft lights. Reading. Moments seem to stretch and shrink, as I work around my kitchen sink. Cooking. Extending heart and soul and fingertips, rapidly trading electronic blips. Chatting. Presu...

  20. Voyage of the Damned

    With so much out of reach here and abnormal back there, how can I blame the biting cold weather for my stale mood? From my frozen frame of mind, I force thoughts away which bring more misfortune. Quitting is not an option. Yet knowing that there’s no...

  21. What Awaits Us All

    “How is it you seem to know so much more than the rest of us?” Something about his quizical behavior reminded me of and engaged my own childhood wonder. “It happened so fast. When the light came I could not struggle, nor was I worried...

  22. ...That's when it happened

  24. Milking the Moon - V1

    It’s not completely dark out yet, but when the moon is up and the sun has set, we celebrate every chance we get. The freaks come out to play, careless for the next day. Consequences and their significance may over their decisions, hold no sway. H...

  25. Reoccurring Natural Disaster

    The quiet storm rages to life. Desires are pursued with the unmitigated ferocity of Mother Nature’s fury. With no more warning than from a strike of lightning, the earth between us begins quaking. Despite efforts to steer the freight train away, ...

  26. Lesson from Poseidon

    Panic is pointless, but my heart is still racing. Sinking, faster the more I relive my sinning. Be it delirium from drowning, or a vibration from unbeknownst…I heard / felt sinister laughter. When my lungs couldn’t hold out any longer, the ...
