  • Peaceful Serenity

    She breezes out of her house, closing the door with a soft click behind her. She is careful not to make a sound, she doesn’t want anyone to know where she is. She walks to the black forest bordering her backyard, everything pitch black because th...

  • Departed

    The chicken wire fence was gnarled; it bloomed outward in a metallic flower of sharp, rubicund-tipped edges. Something thick and heavy had encompassed the atmosphere. Outlines and shapes seemed dull and colorless. The building before her was whitewashe...

  • Unescorted

    It used to be an office building. Inside, the lobby was deserted. There was not much of a surprise in the fact. This did not stop her from walking inside, carefully closing the door behind her, making sure it didn’t make any noise. She wasn’...

  • Discovery

    The cafeteria was no better than she expected it to be. It was already ransacked and destroyed; tables were upturned, vending machines rent in two and counter islands practically ripped from the ground. She did not dare eat the food knowing they had to...

  • Stupid Decisions

    The minute he was out of the oven, he stretched his legs and looked around curiously. His expression twisted slightly, as if he couldn’t comprehend what he was seeing. Suddenly, his eyes scrunched up and he turned to Beatrice, dark gaze pleading....

    “B-but – my mom – " “How old are you?” A sniff. “Nine. Ten on June seventeenth.” “Come with me.” “My mom!” “What about your father?” That stopped him. He faltered for a ...

  • Unlikely Companions

    Why the hell is it so cold? I knew that there would be some discomfort involved, but I didn’t know that feeling the cold would be one of them. I’m not supposed to be conscious. The day before the lights went out, I sat in the park with . . ...

  • Alone

    He was gone. She was alone for the first time in months, her darkest years flooded back to her, the lonlieness and fear of her past. That lonliness changed because of him. It changed when she met him. Not instantly though. At first it was worse, choos...

  • Home Alone

    I walk through my empty house humming to myself. I head towards my kitchen to grab snack. As I rummage through the cupboards looking for a decent snack that isn’t to fattening, I hear the floor creak. I freeze and look towards the hallway that le...

  • Monophobe

    I used to have my parents. My mother would sit with me at the bus stop. She would meet me when the bus dropped me off. She slept in my room. I think that’s why dad left. She never said it was my fault, but I knew. When she died, I was lost. IR...

  • Who but I to look?

    The craters dictated the route he took. With their upheaved and unweathered edges, as he’d discovered when he was first dispatched here, shortcuts weren’t worth the risk of a depressurizing boot-tear. The guiding beep was loud in his ears, ...

  • Nothing but Time

    Darkness. Darkness darker than anything I can describe surrounds me. I have taken countless attempts at my life, but still I float. Alone. I was insane for some time, perhaps a hundred million years or more. Those were nice years, they passed right by ...

  • One of Many

    At the toy store, our “Mom” tells us we have 15 minutes to meet back up with our selection. We each get one toy, and if we haven’t made our decision by then, we get nothing. The only bad thing about today is that everyone gets to go. ...

  • Time Starts

    It’s not a bad life, right? All the necessities provided, everything I need to survive. But I can’t stand it. I used to pace from one blank plastic wall to the other, trying to think who would have a reason to imprison me, who hated me this...

  • Magistra Vellini

    I walked swiftly down the street. It was the same street I’d walked a million times over, but never with such fear. Train had offered to come with me, but I’d declined. It was a place I had to go alone. I hadn’t spoken to her in year...

  • The Final Decision

    He looks at the metal monster sitting on the table in front of him. He doesn’t want to touch it or even go near it lest he do something stupid. Taking a deep, trembling breath, he continues to stare at it. It sneers at him, daring him to do it. T...

  • Never Alone

    She was never alone. No matter where or how far she went, or how hard she tried to leave them behind, they were always there with her, nagging. All of them, except the one that mattered the most. Never alone, always alone. She wondered if it would e...

  • The Sound Of Silence

    Hello was the beginning; good-bye was always there to end it all. The streets were cold and empty. The cars sit idling in the road way, while rusting away in the eyes of Mother Nature’s course in the world. I sit and listen to the swings blowing in t...

  • She Looks Like You {Poem}

    Something about the way she sits, sending warnings to all around. They leave her alone; except for a few men, either brave or stupid enough to try getting within her fortress walls. She holds her umbrella, point down, like a sword, ready at any second ...

  • Replacement

    It was a dreary Monday morning when I walked into the office. I knew the rainclouds wouldn’t make for a very pleasant view from the windows on our side of the building. I couldn’t wait to see her face. I hoped to see a smile. She had the ki...

  • Everything That You Don't See

    It burns to feel things I wish it would stop I love you, it burns I hate you, it burns I’m angry, yet it’s still burning The fire is out of control It all hurts endlessly My words, they all come out senselessly And as always I bear the pain...

  • Ten minutes, 600 seconds.

    The suit’s vacuum seal is slowly starting to depressurize, and I feel the light tingling that comes with the sensation of losing all the air in my suit. I check my gauge: 10 minutes. 10 minutes. It takes less than that to fall in love. 10 minutes...

  • Paranoia

    I went and got my lunch slowly. Walking back to the empty table felt just like it did the very first day. I could feel everyone’s eyes boring into my body from every angle. My face was set in a firm mask. I didn’t want anyone to know what I...

  • Alone

    No place to hide Nowhere to go No one who cares No one to show The tears beneath Those happy eyes She’s faking it At night she cries Because she thought And she believed That he still cared She was deceived Her broken heart Is not enough His word...
