Writing with many facets. I’ve been dabbling in the Art of the Word for well over 15 years. If you leave a rating, kindly leave comments as well. What am I doing right? What am I doing wrong? You can help me grow.

Random thoughts along with the occasional Haiku or Alliteration play may be found on Twitter @TesseractUnfold. My personal site (link above) features some written works that are not here, as well as some photos and drawings.

  1. A Miracle of Vowels

    Facetiously

  2. Living in the Retrograde

    I was born at the moment of my death. Progressing through the ages against the oncoming traffic of humanity, I didn’t age like most would have expected. By my twentieth year, I had dedicated myself to learning that which I could take with me. Phy...

  3. Left with a Bad Taste

    Dabbing my mouth with my handkerchief due to the lack of napkins at the table, I wave for my check. The food was just palatable enough for me to not have to excuse myself to the bathroom during my meal, though I couldn’t guarantee that I’d ...

  4. The Snail's Lesson

    Patience

  5. Dinner Time!

    “What is that?” Riskardoo indicated the rabbit in Padarmic’s arms with disdain as she entered the hut, followed by the massive hulk of a bodyguard they employed. Padarmic looked up at his sister. “It’s my bunny. I made it ...

  6. "Hello, My Bunnies!"

    “OH, I’m a Padarmic Suskaflee I barely come up to anyone’s knee Nobody knows what it’s s’posed to BEEEEEEE But I’m a Padarmic Suskaflee!” He had the demeanor of a child initially, but there was something else g...

  7. The Spelling Bee

    H-O-N-E-Y

  8. The New Black

    “My God, Jen… I’ve never seen anything like it!” Lexi’s eyes boggled at the new shirt her roommate was sporting. It was black. Not just black like what you find at Hot Topic, but it actually looked like light was having a ...

  9. Please Remain Calm

    Fed by my suppressed fear, the plague spread. I found a newly vacated hotel lobby with a giant TV and sat down in one of the chairs to watch the news coverage. CNN, BBC, al-Jazeera… It was planetary by now. On some occasions, the reporter would d...

  10. Amplification

    I made my way out of the cell, still in my white hospital robe. There was lots of yelling and screaming going on, but none of it appeared to be directed at me. “Vy zashchishcheny. Pozhaluĭsta, uspokoĭtes’.” Another reassurance ami...

  11. Life Isn't Always a Sci-Fi Show

    Black Hole consuming All life we know is at risk Where is our White Knight?

  12. Work Time Fun

    I’m writing this from work to spice up my day with fun. My boss knows well my quirk, not the strangest thing I’ve done.

  13. Anathemous

    Noone knows my name, but they all know what I do. I am here to take the blame of all those souls in view. From birth I was groomed to take this nameless role The village no longer doomed to demise by angry troll The curses of life transferred insult a...

  14. Faces in the Wall

    As this is being written, I find myself in a padded cell. The faces continue to manifest themselves in the carpeted floor, the padded walls, every surface in the world has become a skin from which their features emerge. They speak to me from time to ti...

  15. River Karma

    This is my hand it’s covered in blood as I stand amidst the flood. Full of hate born of rage. I couldn’t wait for the next page Waters at my thigh I passed through the door He simply had to die Couldn’t wait any more Life for life bro...

  16. Born of the Snow's Crystal

    Anati pulled the collar up closer around her neck in a feeble attempt to restrict the last of her body heat from escaping her coat. It’d been blind luck that lead her to this cave in the middle of a storm. Escaping the whispers of the snowbound w...

  17. Ashes to Ashes

    Against my better judgement, I removed my mask. I needed a better look at the destruction we’d brought down on these people. Not a single artificial structure remained standing. Not a single soul in the streets, aside from my fellow soldiers. The...

  18. The Final Verse

    A tale had been told since the dawn of time of the song that began the world: “That wondrous hymn, that heavenly chant which caused all being to be. On the end of days, so the tale says, another song will end Sky, Land and Sea." Armed wi...

  19. Daybreak on the Other Side of Infinity

    Stories are told Older than old Of the flame which once burnt in the sky Nightfolk are we in darkness we see All that we need to survive. Some strangers have come to our permanent glum Proposing to re-light our sun But we’ve come so far without a...

  20. Born for the Fourth of July

    “Are you ready, men???” “Hoo-Rah!” “That’s right. You are the BEST, you are the BRIGHTEST, and you are the ONLY ones who can get this job done. I want you to get out there and show the people watching out there JUST ...

  21. And the Shadows Decline to Fall

    When one speaks of failure, it is generally something that they could have prevented: A situation where they had the chance to change the course of events and were unable to effect that change. I inspire a different sort. Shadows simply fail to fall up...

  22. Flatlander's Lament

    Ocean to the West Impassable at best Mountain to the East Guarded by beast Tundra to the North Unable to go forth Desert to the South Dunes in a sandy mouth Beyond these dangers the world gets stranger Though none have progressed as far No soul has ari...

  23. Demon's Awakening

    The oncoming calamity did not solely affect Angel. The gargoyle Artemis felt an odd stirring in his heart. His daily deeds held less of the satisfaction that they once did… What was that? Compassion? Regret? These weren’t qualities one typi...

  24. Final Lullabye

    “Time to sleep close your eyes, Count your sheep nighttime flies…” Shilah’s voice had a forced sweetness to it, and she was sure her children could detect it. Everyone was on edge since the merge began. She had managed to get th...

  25. A Ryddil's Beginning

    All stories have a beginning, and this is no less a beginning than most. Dawn had broken over the emerald fields, crowned by golden plains of wheat. The Ryddil clan had made an early start of the day’s harvest and were already hard at work. For some ...

  26. Will o' the Wisp

    With the old man’s final breath, a wisp of crystalline smoke rose from his lips. Llani took in a surprised gasp at the sight, then a second as the smoke disappeared into her mouth. She vaguely recalled seeing other Ryddils arrive as she collapsed...

  27. War Chorus

    She dreamt of war. Streaks of darkness shot past her: arrows fired by the foe. She witnessed her hands directing energy toward the enemy to keep them at bay. A steady cachophonous hum emanated from the shrouded battlefield, a counter to the War Chorus ...

  28. Shadow Song

    Llani continued in silence for some time, with no further attack on her or her mind. She sat down against a tree and spoke aloud. “Pertiné… Why did you say ’I’m Sorry’ as you died?” A wry chuckle crossed her mind. /...

  29. Ahead on our Way

    Her father and brother were called in. Llani knew in the oldest stories that this sort of thing COULD happen, but noone had been a witness to it for a thousand years. Her family were whispering out of earshot, but she could sense what they were saying ...

  30. Pertiné's Demise

    A sudden chill crept across her frame. Llani looked up and saw no cloud. The sun was still blazing brightly, but seemed darkened somehow. Her gait slowed as she glanced behind her position and saw nothing. She turned back to the fore and was face to fa...
