  • Drowning

    I took a deep breath and jumped. I crashed into the cold ocean water. The waves and currents pushing me under. I didn’t resist. I could’ve swam to shore, saved myself. But instead, I let my arms and legs go limp. My lungs were burning, scre...

  • Epiphany (I)

    She knocks again, and when I don’t answer, she begins to knock harder and eventually opens the door. It wasn’t locked, but I assume she wanted to give me privacy. I hear her gasp, and grab the pills from the floor. “Damn!” She s...

  • Epiphany (II) (Mature)

    I stop halfway down the hallway and notice that I’m naked. Fuck. Should I go back and face Ruth or not? I decide I’m done letting people seeing me naked—especially Denny, who God knows, where he is. I walk back into the bathroom and s...

  • Suicide by Poseidon?

    I had gotten used to tempting fate and getting away with it. Cheap drugs, fast women, and wild gambling streaks all left me unaffected. Hell, I’ve survived savage animal attacks, car crashes, earthquakes, even lightning strikes… but this ca...

    Nestled in my lap, dense curls of red, Bouncy spindles of fragrance, Further down, soft white canvas, Her face, Little red vein under left nostril, Peaking behind concealer, Pursed doll lips, Summer eyes like algae at the bottom of a pool, Engulfing, A...

  • Lesson from Poseidon

    Panic is pointless, but my heart is still racing. Sinking, faster the more I relive my sinning. Be it delirium from drowning, or a vibration from unbeknownst…I heard / felt sinister laughter. When my lungs couldn’t hold out any longer, the ...

  • Prisoner of Aquaphobia

    I am afraid of water. Of giant expanses of dihydrogen monoxide that could bury you alive without a moment’s hesitation. I am scared of the mere thought of being surrounded by something that is poison to my lungs. I have nightmares of perishing in...
