I enjoy writing, regardless of how good I am at it. it also represents, for me, a pleasant outlet of excess emotion. this is why a fair bit of my work is not the happiest of content. however, I also write for enjoyment when I do not need to vent my feelings so I hope you can find something which takes your interest in the stories I write.

PLEASE prequel or sequel if you feel the inspiration. I LOVE seeing different interpretations of my work and new takes on my somewhat over-explored themes.

Stories

  1. In case of emergency, break glass.

    Now here is a familiar situation… No doubt we’ve all been here. A man sits dozing on a simple chair, in a simple room. Magnolia paint coats the walls and a small fireplace burns in front of him, set deep into a stone box in the wall. the ch...

  2. Smiling Lies

    Save me from smiling eyes. Save me from shining happiness, gold and fairy dust. Save me from smiling eyes. Save me from gleaming, glistening polish. Save me from smiling eyes. Save me from walls of silent, expressionless stillness. Save me from smilin...

  3. Icicle.

    bites. gnaws and grinds. stiffening sinews grow taut and ring, quivering and humming as they strum like a harp. touch becomes tangled. signals cross. what was once brush becomes tingle and buzz. what was once pain becomes wakeful awareness. The air sin...

  4. Gentle-man, Defender of Good Manners.

    Running a gloved fingertip along the brim of his top hat and allowing his monocle to shift slightly in his eye socket, Gentle-man, defender of good manners, smiled politely, displaying his perfectly white teeth to the world. His tailcoat swirled gently...

  5. No accounting for taste

    Fingers dancing over the myriad of knobs and buttons, sweat beading on his forehead and a determined grimace on his face, the DJ wove his web. Throbbing sound thundered from the great speakers like a torrent of molten gold, touching hearts and souls al...

  6. Last Stand

    The fire door shook on its hinges with an ominous splintering noise, muffled slightly by the thick wood. Jacob wrenched his gaze away from the hallway long enough to force a reassuring smile. “Go on, then. you haven’t got all day.” He...

  7. The Airing Cupboard of Despair

    A swirling mass of inky blackness buffets the glass of a long, glass tunnel. Deep in the shadows a light flickers, and then another. Now, as you advance through the Tunnel’s roaring silence, with the sound of every breath sucked from the audibl...

  8. Delete

    The room was silent. The gap between songs was always the hardest part. Music was sustaining him now like petrol fumes in a thirsty engine and any unwanted silence filled him with nausea. He clicked, glassy eyed, on the tiny two-dimensional logos. High...

  9. 326, 49, short book. bugger.

    “…” silence swirled around the room like an angry snake, coiled to spring. There she sat, blinking politely, her head tilted slightly to the left in a quizzical and mildly condescending way. God, he loved her. He wanted to leap across...

  10. Musings on Muse.

    Even as life flickers into being, a bright light enters our consciousness. It is what makes us unique, and what brings us our joys and sorrows, our creativity and our truest expression. It still rests there. That vital nugget of molten gold, embedded a...

  11. Literary Torture

    True pain is running out of letters just three away from the

  12. A Vision of Equality

    The cracks in the road were growing. The mob, wild and panicked, like stampeding cows, was a mass of crushing flesh writhing across the rubble. The edges of the massive human beast began to fray as the way forwards became tighter. The animal’s si...

  13. Unexpected Interruptions

    “Ah…” The old man seemed quite startled as he pressed himself against the wall and glanced back and forth for the nearest exit. “I’m terribly… urm…” I blinked. steam was still wreathed around my lower bod...

  14. Burn, Baby, Burn. (Mature)

  15. Gate-crashing

    Love sat, cross legged on a thick rug in front of the blazing fireplace of my mind. There she sat, bare toes wriggling in the plush strands as she eyed Lust uncertainly. Ah yes, Lust. There she lounged, sprawled across turbulent sheets, eyes inviting a...

  16. Dear...

    Dear Diary. Why do I speak to you like you will ever respond? For that matter, why do I keep you at all? It is a rare occurance indeed when I feel the urge to flip back through your pages and even then I am remembering details which I opted not to comm...

  17. Look closer

    Here, in my palm, is a small country. It is green, lush, with trees and ripe fields. A patchwork of healthy landscapes. Now, look closer. There, in the bottom left hand corner, is a little brooke. Chuckling water bubbles and gurgles over multicoloured ...

  18. Ups and downs

    Life is a rollercoaster. This seems to be the general concensus. Ups and downs, twists and turns. Blah blah blah. People are alway going on about the ups, and how each down comes before an up… and when you’re at the bottom, the only way is ...

  19. Aztecs, Man...

    20th of December. The room was quiet. A barmaid was collecting empty pint glasses from beer-soaked mats. “Aztecs, man. I’m telling you…” Pete rolled his eyes. All bloody year he’d been hearing this. “They knew someth...

  20. No Fear

    The whump and crack of bullets hitting dirt filled the air. Blurs of hot metal tore the air in two around his ears as the soldier crouched low behind a lump of earth. Grit kicked up by impacting shots caught in his eyes and nostrils. Fear filled his mi...

  21. Freedom

    Climb to the highest point you can find. Fling your arms wide. Feel the winds of the world whip around your life. Are you there? Then yell. Scream. Let your soul out into the fresh air through your vocal chords and let rip. Don’t worry about peop...

  22. Childish

    “GOD! You’re SO CHILDISH!” I feel a hot bubble pop silently in my chest. It’s been almost a month now, dealing with this awkward situation. I say awkward. I mean hellish. He told her he couldn’t be friends with her anymore...

  23. I Think, Therefore...

    She flexed her fingers, feeling the skin shift and stretch slightly to accomodate her movements. Fascinating she thought, lifting her left foot with visible ecstasy and placing it with infinite care on the cold linoleum flooring. She registered a tinny...

  24. A True Story

    The coated man strode down the path, eyes fixed glumly on the concrete at his feet. Through his headphones tortured notes were pulled taut and shaken violently and in his mind floated hateful faces with twisted smiles. His coat billowed as though tryin...

  25. Road to nowhere.

    My options are open. I can be anything. Do anything. The world is mine for the taking. Give me a chunk of that brave new horizon. Grant my a slice of that ludicrously extended collection of chances. Get me away from here, through the ever widening worl...

  26. Inspiration.

    My inspiration. It was this for which I searched, and yet none came. Silence prevailed. My mind was blank. Then, I had inspiration offered to me. “I’ll be your inspiration.” Very well. You shall be the spark to ignite my artistic fla...

  27. Love

    Love sneaks up on you like a thief. In the darkness it pounces, grabbing you and pulling at you, caressing and cajoling you, pressing you to stay but a moment longer. Love is like water torture, with an incessant drip drip drip of emotion. drip. joy. d...

  28. Unique taste

    “Mmm… lovely.” Geoff licked his lips, digging his fork into a chunk of meat which bobbed in the stew, savouring the smell as he bit into it. “You’ve made another GREAT stew, Rob.” Rob gave no answer. This was hardly ...

  29. No more.

    No more, please. I’m full. I’ve had enough. No more feeding. I cannot eat another bite. I just want to sit now. Silent and comfy. I swear I will burst. Pop my seams if I take one more bite. And yet, I want one more bite. I would risk one mo...

  30. Sound effects included

    In an infinite universe anything is possible. Anders stepped into his cubicle, flicked the switch on his moniter and fell flat on his arse. Standing unsteadily, he looked accusingly at the damp patch of cheap carpet where his economically priced desk ...
