  • Two Impossible Things Before Breakfast

    Face down on my couch, I reached out blindly searching for my glasses. I vaguely remembered them falling to the floor in the middle of the night. My fingertips brushed against brittle softness that crumbled at my touch. Had I tracked leaves into my apa...

  • The Girl of Twigs and Glass

    A girl. She knew she was a girl at least, but nothing more would come except tears. Tears in the middle of the forest, trickling from her Murano marble eyes, down her cracked mirror cheeks hidden by her willow wand hair and finally wiped away with her ...

  • Too Much is Never Enough

    What do I fear most in life? It’s hard to describe or explain, like a forgotten classmate’s name you just can’t quite put a finger on. It has been called many different things by many different people, and has even drove men to kill. ...

  • Dear Father.

    Dear Father, You ruined me. And you don’t care. I believed you that day, when you said you were just going to the grocery store, and that you’d be back soon. Funny how I never saw you again. You left, and you took an essential part of me ...

  • Once Lost...

    I still haven’t been found. The moss, pungent with loam and decayed leaves, has returned. The rains have long since leveled the slight mound that concealed my body. There are bones, my bones. Mostly healthy, once framing me with veins, muscles, m...

  • Your Eyes.

    Your eyes. You know how I melt in your eyes. They’re lies, they hypnotize, disguise. I despise your eyes. They look They stare without a care, everywhere. Do I dare lose myself in your eyes? I’m lost I’m found. All around there is no...

  • Lost!

    “Mummy? … Daddy?” the little girl cried, lost in the cold, heartless crowd surrounding her, trapping her. A tear of confusion, fear and utter misery escaped her sea blue eyes that would normally glow with delight. They fit well with h...

  • The End

    Forget me and leave me I am not but a lie A shadow transending from another life Your anger causes anguish But makes it easier still To become stronger in my valued will My thoughts are in shambles And my hearts screaming why Why must all we have be go...

  • Lost

    Now all my joy has turned to mud And the anger leaks into my blood It poisons the stream and boils the flow Makes me wish I could let go Take my life it’s not worth the pain To have to run away again Since I’ve lost what made my heart beat so stron...

  • Sunlight Over the Water

    I continue up the hill, and a stunning view of the forest lies before me but I don’t stop. I continue down the other side of the hill and the trail forks. I choose the less beaten path. I like running trails that most other people avoid, theyR...

  • Reinforcement.

    Do you understand you hurt me? Do you realize I cried? I gave my heart I sold my soul I bought your every lie. Do you feel bad when you see me? Can you even sleep at night? It’s only you, ’Cuz my heart aches Each time I turn out the light. ...

  • Ran So Far Away

    I just lived in the TV and the magazines that summer. Posters of Sheena Easton and Slash flickered blue against the walls of my room. “Sleep tight,” I’d say, and leave the TV on until morning. Some nights, I’d dream right into a...

  • The Wandering Ant

    Redgar, at least he thought his name was Redgar, had been travelling a long time. His memory had holes in it. He knew that much. Was he running from something? Was he cursed? Redgar wasn’t sure. It was frustrating not to know but he did know one ...

  • Barren of Life, Abundant in Inspiration

    Stephen walked home, bent under the weight of his backpack. The sidewalk was cracked and barren, reflecting the worst parts of the area. Stephen didn’t mind though. He saw every step as an opportunity for adventure. A grim-faced mafia don rides b...

  • Tales from the Sidewalk: Lost and Alone

    Shelly was terrified. Nothing looked familiar. She had no idea where she was or where her mom had went. All she could do was keep walking forward, tightly clutcing the bone charm her gandmother had made for her. She felt tears coming and shook her head...

  • A Reckoning Postponed

    Desperate, the three crept through infinite darkness. They shared one flashlight between them, and crowded each other while trying to stay near the narrow beam. Around them water dropped from the ceiling in irregular, almost musical, patterns. Sarah sl...

  • Waves

    In hallowed halls an angel sings of sin, redemption and something lost. Sand and salt. All things fade, and fill. A tide awash with feelings. All the empty cries of humanity collect in sea shells. Hold one up; there is a sigh, released. The waves move....

  • Repercussion

    I tried to get you out of my head, I even got up and out of bed. I know already that love bites, But you know i’m never giving up this fight. Once you give your heart away, It doesn’t matter what you do or say. It will never be entirely you...

  • Sophia

    I confess with red eyes hidden behind despair clenched fists, it is my fault she’s gone. Life with her at my side was so easy, so pleasantly bearable. She sat with soft, pale brown eyes fixed on me as I would inscribe my emotions upon her heart. ...

  • Stranded Without A Life Jacket

    I am lost at sea, clinging to the only bit of my mast I have left (The rest was destroyed by the lightning bolt). The waves rocked and took us captive without our consent and we tumbled through the choppy water and succumbed to the sea.
