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.

Stories

  1. Idle Hands

    I always thought lighting the tip of the high heel aflame was a nice touch. One could always just toss a match into the fuel-soaked dumpster, but hey… You have to have your signature. Sticking around just long enough to ensure the flame would cat...

  2. I Am Fear

    I know you can’t see me, but I relish in the taste of your fear from here. My voice approaches from the left, so you dart right… Only to hear it approach from before you. It may not be pleasant to hear, but well… I’m not a pleas...

  3. Bring Me Your Weary

    He’d been riding for days. How long didn’t really matter… After his escape from the last batch of gangs roaming the wastes he just wanted to find a place to bed down and call his own. Accompanied only by the voice of his iron steed as...

  4. Solar Campfire

    Stoke the fire Make it burn There’s so much more to learn. Toss the soil into motion add some air plants and ocean Other orbs large and small rock or gas cover them all A final flourish life and sky Five billion years Before it dies A Solar Campf...

  5. Freedom From the Light

    Four days. Or has it been five? I guess that’s the point of these things, isn’t it? With the constant music and blazing light, I’ve barely been able to do more than grab a few moments of unconciousness. I used to love bright, shiny da...

  6. Getting Nowhere as Fast as I Can

    Who am I? I’m noone and everyone. I’m an introverted extrovert. I’m a claustrophobe who loves a small dark room and a sociophobe who just wants to chat. Who am I? I’m consistently inconsistent I’m calmly hyperactive. I...

  7. Where Angel and Demon Collide

    The worlds “Angel” and “Demon” now play host to a planetary collision where gods and man fear to tread. Angel’s populace had lived a blessed life since time immemorial, but now they faced panic as the demons prepared the c...

  8. Time Travelers

    We are all Time Travelers, Though not to the naked eye. Forward we go Be it ever-so-slow The past we may draw quickly nigh.

  9. The Last Mariachi (Fin)

    The ground’s mist mirrored my mind’s panic as I ran. I lost track of whether I had passed that damned shack… 4, maybe 5 times? The music which had calmed me only a short time ago now grated itself across my ears like a cat’s ton...

  10. The Last Mariachi (Reprise)

    My ears tracked the lonely music as long as I could. It was a welcome reprieve from the ever-present music of desert fauna that one would normally expect in the wastes of Mexico. The moon hovered in the sky, pleasantly full and illuminating the land qu...

  11. The Last Mariachi

    A low-lying mist swirled about my legs as I trudged along the dusty road. Considering how crispy the desert could get during the day, it was surprisingly cool right now. I jammed my hands in my pockets and peered at the road ahead. In the distance, I c...

  12. Do I Not Destroy My Enemy...?

    Serendipity smiles upon me, Apprehension has been shed. While searching for an enemy, A friend was found instead.

  13. Building the Prison from the Inside

    A mason by trade in this glorious land. The buildings in this city owe themselves to my hand. I take pride in my work. But this latest job lurks O’er freedoms which now have been banned. Mixing mortar and forms to fill with concrete No spring to...

  14. Chrysalis

    No longer the form I was Now something better My wings produce not a buzz But simply a light flutter Many fewer feet On this new body of mine Antennae and wings complete Shod with colors of the divine. Goodbye to the worm I was Now a butterfly. Goodbye...

  15. No, I expect you to die!

    Years of planning have finally come to fruition. The best minds in the world have worked on this project… Some might call it a Doomsday Device, I call it the rebirth of mankind. These minds have now been completely bent to my will and while retai...

  16. Land of the Northern Flame

    They told me not to go, but I had to make certain that what I saw was not just an illusion. While keeping watch two nights ago on the shores of the Sea of Okhotsk, I could swear that I saw plumes of fire rising up in the far distance. I whispered about...

  17. It's Alice

    Who are you again? My wife? (laughs) That can’t be. I don’t recall ever getting married. Though if I did, I can see why I might have chosen you. Oh, it’s such a beautiful day outside. Seems so new and fresh. Maybe we should go for a...

  18. Lifeguard!

    /————————————————\ Help! I’m drowning in your eyes! \————————————————/

    /————————————————\ -— I hope to be ‘we’ forever. -— \————————————————/

  20. Darklight One

    “You’re on final approach, Darklight One. Ten seconds to radio silence.” “Roger that, Control.” Sounds so routine… Like some milk-run to the dark side of Earth’s moon. Nothing like the mindbending stunt we’re attempting. Nature may abho...

  21. Realization's Dawn

    Every day, a father and his son went onto a nearby hill to watch the sun rise. The child could not understand why he was pulled from under his safe, warm, and comfortable blankets so early in the morning, just to see the light he took for granted appea...

  22. God of the Petri Dish

    I could be considered a God to the inhabitants of a petri dish. My ways of creation are to them unknown. My method of existence and of manipulating their universe would be completely beyond their comprehension. Perhaps the only thing that sets humanity...

  23. A Farewell to Morning

    There’s a slim chance that our worst fears will not come to pass, Though all signs point to a continued loss of mass. In the star which has given us life, and illuminated our eyes Now we stand both husband and wife on the brink of failure after c...

  24. ...and many more to go.

    A quick look back shows the space that I had just left. It seemed so far away… certainly the effort was nothing insignificant. The feeling of exhilaration at this progress has inspired a wide grin to cross my face. Perhaps I’ll even hazard ...

  25. Keywords

    This campfire society is a call to isolation. Away from technology’s test, no need to duck bullets. Sequestered away from that teeming death hole, One may take pride in life and philosophy, comedy and fears. It is a speed run from darkness to lig...

  26. Must be Tuesday.

    Blinding cacophony about. Must focus…. There we go. Now the world’s coming into focus. Still alot of input to sort out. Sun’s still there, Grass is green. Brook’s babbling happily about the rain it just got on Thursday. Thursday...

  27. M.E.O.W (Mature)

  28. Log Entry: Earth 071710-A

    I stand here in an open plain. It’s a rather lovely day… a light breeze toying with nearby tree leaves, waves lapping against the beach. Quite Idyllic. I can’t help but enjoy this temporary stop despite what it represents. The all-enc...

  29. Swept Away

    I struck up a conversation with one of the nearby Marines as their leader started randomy demanding series of twenty push-ups to try to keep the troops’ minds off of the tense situation. I had heard this Marine speaking Spanish before, so I decid...

  30. I Love You Only

    I love you only when the sky is there. I love you only when there is a sun to light the day and a moon for the night. I love you only when the stars burn. Simply because I love you only.
