  1. Regrets

    You need to understand something. I never meant for anyone to die. I know that what we tried to accomplish usually has… what’s that phrase? You know, the one which politicians and generals love so much? Oh yeah, collateral damage. I never t...

  2. Dawn

    The screaming had stopped at last. The Land Before the Forest was nothing but a black skeleton of charred, wooden bones still smoking in the pre-dawn half light. You took my husband. You took my soul. You took my innocence. Now, you will take nothing f...

  3. I never watch the news

    Until I am the news. Go to YouTube. Type in: Perth Fire / Bushfire There’s not much up there yet. Look for anything dated today or yesterday. Do you see those houses and trees that are burning? That bridge which just burned down? That’s the...

  4. World Serpent

    I Sleep. Waiting. Under the ocean. Old and scarred and bitter, coiled in the deep and sunless dark. axe-age, sword-age, shields are cleft asunder, wind-age, wolf-age, before the world plunges headlong; no man will spare another Until the day the sky tu...

  6. The Price

    “Lorelei!” called a man at the end of the room. So, I finally had a name for the woman who’d taken everything from me. An odd name, but then again, who knew when or where she’d been born. “Yes, Jack?” Lorelei called ...

  7. After

    “Take it.” “We’re not supposed to. It’ll kill us.” “I took it and I’m not dead.” “It’s against the rules.” “The rules be damned. Take it.” “What if he finds out?&...

  8. The Land Beyond the Forest

    The windows of the building were broken and boarded up. Entropy and decay were slowly eating the walls, breaking the roof tiles, rusting the gutters. “An abandoned pub?” “You expected a cave full of bats? A mauseleum, perhaps?” ...

  9. Feedback

    A rogue in the middle of Central Park. Kill count: 97 and rising. Every sniper that had gotten inside his range died before even loading their rifle. The rogue was listening for them. A sniper’s mind is very distinct. We walked over the bodies. R...

  10. The Ghost Part V: Edges

    Sharp and clever knives Broken pieces of glass A mirror is the greatest weapon Show me what I really am. Will my reflection turn me to stone? Show me for the monster I am? Will it destroy me? Burn me to ashes in holy light? Or will it show me something...

  11. The Ghost Part IV: Limbo

    Suspended, Stagnating, Despairing, Raging Against An Unjust World. Purposeless Meaningless Waiting For Something To Happen. Waiting. Just Waiting.

  12. The Ghost Part III: Angry

    Separate my feelings From my perceptions Is that a patronising sneer? Or an encouraging smile? Are you my friend or my enemy? My salvation? Or my damnation? Love and hate Are woven closer Together than we Sometimes think I love you. But I hate you, too...

  13. The Ghost Part II: Trapped

    Why can’t I move on? Shackled to my past A prison of memories and regrets. Torn in two, Lost ghost Caught between Two worlds Life and Death Truth and Lies Real and Unreal I just wish I knew Which one was which.

  14. The Ghost Part I: Void

    I am wrapped in silence An island in a sea of people A space An absence Faceless Placeless Without a home Or even a name Am I what I was made Or what I made myself into? A ghost in the half-light A dancing shadow A shape that dissolves into the wind

  15. Faith

    “This isn’t fair! A choice between… this… and death is no choice at all!” I screamed at her. “If you didn’t want this, your body would have rejected the change,” she replied. “Yeah, and rapists tell...

  16. Relativity

    “… and some people-” said Sam, his discourse on all the evils of the world looking like it was rallying for another offensive. “Please,” said Ian. “Don’t get us chucked out of Borders again. I swear I will deny...

  17. Laughing Eyes

    My vision swam strangely. I looked up at the sky; it was a vivid dark purple… like looking at a photo taken at night that had been overexposed. It was night again. I must have slept through the day. “I do it often enough,” she said. S...

  18. I exist

    I am here. Right now. And I exist. Yes, I was created by 22 year old Englishman sat behind a laptop on a wednesday evening. But merely because I was created doesn’t mean I’m not real. And if you’re religious, there’s a strong po...

  19. The Will to Live

    I started to turn my head. “I wouldn’t.” The voice sounded seductive and playful. And very clearly female. I felt a stab of anger at that, as if it somehow amplified my husband’s betrayal. “It is difficult to find a bloodl...

  20. Autism

    She walks towards me and I stare at the mole on the side of her cheek because it is very small almost a freckle but it is a mole. She says, “Why did they let the Speds in here? Get out, freak, you’re in my way.” Her eyes go up and the...
