  • Queen Sized II

  • Waiting for Grace

    This is my pre-coital cigarette. Breathe in. The filters are the only solid matter to pass my lips; I stub them in place. Breathe in. The smoke puddles, drips past the phlegm of my throat, expands into my lungs. Breathe out. The only taste is my tongue...

    Crap… I looked at the time. Was it that late already?! “Hey… uh, I have to go. I’ll see you in school tomorrow. Sorry. Bye” I rushed in a quiet, hurried voice. I clicked off my phone and set it down on my bed just before m...

  • Just Need An Escape

    I lie down on my bed and breathe slowly. I close my eyes, squeezing them shut for a moment because they are sore. My cat meows as she curls up in the crook of my arm, pressed against my side. I look at my fan. I lay watching the blades spin around. I t...

    I opened my eyes. I gasped. I was home! I was in my own comfy bed, wearing my little miss pajamas! Was it all just a dream? “MUM!” I yelled, “DAD! LISA!” I jumped out of bed and ran out of the room. I ran through the house, desp...

  • It's Out There

    Only a soft and fuzzy wall stood between me and the monster. I couldn’t see it but it was out there, lurking among the wooden block buildings and toy cars, pillaging the miniature city. I bet it could smell my fear as it slid along the ground searchi...

  • All Grown Up

    “I know you’re there.” The darkened bedroom was still and silent. A car passed by outside, headlights illuminating the posters of moody, teenage vampires and their girlfriends. Annie leaned over the edge of the bed and folded her arms...

  • Spirit

  • There Are Two Kinds of Pain

  • to hell with saying goodbye

  • Monsters Part 2

    So this daily, or rather, nightly ritual lasted for a solid five years, until I was seven. It was a staple in my nighttime schedule, and I couldn’t sleep comfortably without it. However, as I aged, my fear of these so-called monsters dwindled until i...

  • Unstuffing My Bra

    I lay awake in bed. It had been several hours since I’d “put away” my friend Daisy, tucking her into the place behind my cleavage where I kept things. I’d spent the rest of the day giggling occasionally—it tickled when she squ...

  • Explanations

    “…belong…to you?” she asked. “Well, you could say you’re within my body now,” I pointed out. “If someone doesn’t own what’s inside their own body, what do they own?” “N-no!” she said...

  • Warm Hands

  • (Day 24) While You Were Sleeping (Mature)

  • (Day 27) Hiding Amongst the Furniture
