Stories

  1. Ozzy and Drix: After the glory

    It’d been years since the white blood cell had seen his friend. But now he didn’t want to see him. Or rather, for him to see what he looked like now. As years went by the city deteriorated. Thick smog now infected the lungs, causing the man...

    One day I’ll be like them; Strong. Fearless. Marveled. Wanted. Loved. Cheered. Adored. Desired. Envied. Celebrated. One day I will be them; Passionate. Respected. Adored. Cherished One day I’ll be just like them; Strong… Oh ...

  3. Escape

    I feel trapped. I feel stuck. Everything is just a blur. Day in day out it’s always the same thing. It’s just so boring. I cannot stand the monotony anymore. If I have to spend another day cooped up in this horrid house I think I’m go...

  4. Stale

    Same damn story. Same damn time. Same damn characters. Same damn lines. Same stupid plot. Same stupid ideas. Same stupid plans. Same stupid problems. Everything I write seems to be the same. Only in another platform. It’s getting boring.

  5. Gone so long, darlin'

    It had been months. But it felt like years. Six was finally coming home. Tex had fought tooth and nail to get her home, and had won. He now leaned on a wall, heart racing, icy eyes injected with nervousness as he awaited his love. The warm summer rain ...

  7. A hard night

    “When will daddy be home?” “I don’t know. He has to work in the mines again, sweets.” “But I’m hungry! And I miss daddy…” “He’ll be home. Don’t worry.” However, that wasnR...

  8. Losing a grip

    Six, please. Just… Just keep this with you. “Tex.” I’ll be fine, Tex. Come on now, you and I have fought how many wars together? I think I can survive a dinner with a bunch of politics. “Tex, are you ok?” Politics? H...

  9. That bloody therapist

    Desmond watched as his father and that…. That… Woman stood together. Tears stung his eyes, which were squinted in disgust. He clenched a fist, and stepped into the room. He caught the eye of the therapist, who stopped her giggling to look t...

  10. Haphazard (Mature)

  11. Classic.

    Say, hey!Hear the sound of the falling rain Coming down like an Armageddon flame (Hey!)The shame, The ones who died without a name. Hear the dogs howling out of key. To a hymn called “Faith and Misery” (Hey!) And bleed, the company lost the...

  12. Filling in the gaps (Haiku)

    Voices join the tune, Going from many to one, The chorus is done.

    Maybe. Maybe. It’s possible. Maybe. I. Am. Here. To. Do. Something. Of. Worth. Maybe. I’m. Not. Wasting. Anyone’s. Time. Thanks. I. Will. Try. More. I. Suppose. I. Can. Besides. Why. Not. Try?

  14. Nothing but words

    What. Am. I. Doing. Here. I. Am. Not. A. Writer. All. I. am. is. Lost. Useless. Unwanted. Rejected. Tired. Alone.

  15. Orchestra (a Haiku)

    Violins wail soft, Cellos bellow angrily, such a sad duo.

  16. Safe and sound

    My love, I know you cannot hear me. I know I’m slowly killing myself by sitting here… On a long since weathered tomb while staring at your grave. But it’s all I’ve got. Daddy can’t know, mommy doesn’t get it, and why...

  17. My little Brittish Squishy (Mature)

  18. The boy in the hotel pool

    “Come on Mikaela, hurry up!” I walked behind my sister, holding my coverup as if my skin would fall off if I let go. I hated my swimsuit. Well, okay it was okay, but it showed off my legs. Not something I was very proud of. I didn’t r...

  19. Ode to electronics

    Oh why do you tease me so? I have better things ta do ya know. Better things than yelling at you In fact, I have a lot to do. Yet you still waste my time Day after day you whine And when I ask you say you’re fine, But you keep stepping out of lin...

  20. Pen

    A pen and a writer walked down the streets, painting the world with words. Peace, love, pain, sadness. All in one, one in all. Down the alley ways, through the bleak offices, into the minds of all. Taking their place among the their hearts, glimmer...

  22. Dear Griffin

    I love you. I do. At only our ages, it seems impossible. But we’ve beaten odds. We’ve broken from cages, we are fueled by nothing but the will of Gods. Molded together in a twist of fate. The others look at us with hate. Maybe if IR...

  23. Mendezio and Markoya

    “Markie! Wake up!” Staff Sergeant Markoya De Malfursur, blinked his eyes open. A girl stood above him in standard UNSC crew member uniform. Her long, dirty blond hair was brushed neatly, her blue-almost purple eyes shimmered, and she wore a...

  24. Kantorse

    Rumbles shook the ground, making trees whine and leaves argue with the earth. Was a large being coming? No. It was the heat. The power. The sheer majesty of the core of earth. The heat, pressure, time, and magma had spat forth a creature. A being of la...

  25. Death's loving embrase

    Lights around me were blurred, and seemed to melt into a trail of bright colors. By now the pain might as well have been gone. The fuzzy creatures around me prodded, shook, and tried reviving me. They all should have known better. This was only a more ...

  26. Humming of the silence

    You step into a dark room, and someone shuts the door that provided the light behind you. You swallow, and step forward. Your eyes shut, and heart races. Feeling like it will pound out of your chest, you sniff. The air is musky, damp, and slightly.. Wa...

  27. The words and acts of a hero

    I mustering what I had left, I softly, and painfully chocked out, “They will know me as infamous, and him as famous. America will think it the other way around. But all that is required for me to say is; I killed the bastard. I ended years of pai...

  28. The mad button

    Knowing I had to let the base know we’d been infiltrated, I stumbled to the emergency button. I feel short, and only hit the button when my hands flew out in reflex. Red lights began to pulse angrily, and alarms screeched. How fitting. Quickly, I...

  29. Joy in release

    Pain surged through me as my enemy’s hunting knife punctured my chest. I lost my breath, and gasped. Blood began to billow from my mouth as I gargled in agony. Using the knife, he pulled me to the ground, an ripped it out with a sharp jerk. Howev...

  30. A tib bit from a spar gone wrong

    Vexion grolwed, but accepted the hand. She stood, “Yes we are no-” she stopped mid-sentence. Her face wore a look of sheer horror. She swallowed, and doubled over in pain. She screeched, holding her sides as her legs extended, and grew fur....
