    I*zz*ie made m*y* heart strings *q*ui*v*er like a bow pulled across a *v*iolin. A herd of ga*z*elles and *z*ebras chased butterflies in m*y* *q*uickl*y* constricting chest. I watched her work the *x*ero*x* machine at Kinkos. I had gi*v*en her a *z*an*y...

  • Hollywood's Full of Girls Like You

    You remember her when you least expect it. She’s a flash of pure white in your mind, like the scarf she wore around her waist, and the scent of the mangoes she was oh-so fond of. You remember how they tasted on her breath when she’d shoved ...

  • A Moment of Realness

    I walk in and sit down at a table. James walks up to me.“Hey,” he says and sits next to me. “Hey,” I say in a cloudy voice and gaze around the room. I smile when I spot who I’m looking for. Chris strides in like everything...

  • Life Is

    Life is… Moments that take your breath away Ice Cream on a sunny day Dancing in the rain for the hell of it Chasing after what you wanna get Doing something never done before Walking along the ocean shore Picking yourself up when you fall Living ...

  • Star of Bethlehem

    He looked confident, but the way he clung to her hand told her otherwise. Their entwined fingers, green and pink, made a strange contrast. They stood before a tree that was also a person and also a cradle for the galaxy. Ten thousand years hung heavily...

  • A Letter From Any Place You're Not

    Dear Julia, It’s been a month or so now, and I think it’s about time I should write back home again. Seattle has been treating me well. The weather is great up here, and things are great at my job. My apartment is nice, it’ll do for now. Peter ha...

  • This Is My Life (Mature)

    Jack returns and asks where we were in our conversation when he had to tend to his wife. I ask him why does he stay with Karie? You’re only leading yourself into a train wreck of a marriage, I say. Actually, I say, you’re fucked already. She’ll c...

  • Not quite a tap,

    I could smell the thunderstorm. Every time I smell them up until now, I shook uncontrollably. Not quite a tap, but nowhere near as hard as the loud ‘pop’ made it seem. Now, the sound itself? That was horrible. You could hear the cracking of...

  • My Memories, Part 1

    Any time I’m sitting at my job, in a meeting, or any place where I don’t want to be, I can always go back to one special memory I had from when I was just a kid. I must have been only 14 or so then, back when I grew my hair out to shoulder-length. ...

  • My Memories, Part 2

    She would always blush when I would kiddingly call her “Barbie”. I spent every single day of that month with Andrea. She told me she had a boyfriend, but I still had the biggest crush on her. I knew she thought I looked cute because she told me bef...

  • My Memories, Part 3

    I remember the last day perfectly. Packing was so hard. It was like everything I put into my bag was one more moment with Andrea that I had to leave behind. That was the shirt I wore when Andrea first hugged me after we had that long talk about love. T...

  • My Memories, Part 4

    We exchanged numbers, so we could keep in touch, before saying our last goodbyes. I was never one for final farewells, I’m still not. I don’t know what compelled me to do what I did; maybe it was just the thought in my mind that I might not ever s...

  • My Memeries, Epilogue

    To this day I still keep her number on my nightstand, just in case I ever have the guts to finally call and talk to her. ~ Looking back, I still don’t think I’ve ever experienced such intense feelings for another person like I did with Andrea. Ther...

  • And Everything Under The Sun

    She stands there, arms crossed in a vulnerable-but-not-really sort of way. It’s not me, it’s her, she says. The words “space” and “time” are used. She needs more of each. I don’t understand, and as an astrophysicist its been a long while ...

  • Gomorrah, Tennessee

    It looked like I was going to have to take the bus home. Where only four hours ago had sat my spotless new silver Mercedes—still proudly displaying the dealer plates—there was now a car-sized lump of rock protruding from the bottom of a crater six ...

  • In Love With Miss Love

    There was a sad song playing on the radio and the evening breeze of summer was drifting in through the open window. I was dancing with the mop again. Mrs. Thompson was probably watching me out her bedroom window and shaking her head again. I knew this ...

  • Upon a Star

    Her eyes twinkled, just like they had years before, when we lay beneath the stars, full of summer love and heat. The grass had pricked our skin, but we hadn’t noticed, completely absorbed in each other and the magnificent starscape above. It was ...

  • The Love Of The Crime Series - The Beginning

    My father use to tell me to never forget the small things in life, you never know when it will drift away into the darkness. I had wasted many aimless nights sitting in a dark lit room, lighting up and drinking the last sips inside the bottle. It was o...

  • The Love Of The Crime Series - The Old Love

    I was only an hour into fixing the old farm when an old voice came from the corn field, a once calming voice. “Well now I thought if there was one person who I thought that wouldn’t come back it was you Mike.” I was almost about to f...

  • Kiss Me

    So kiss me… We talked for hours and hours about absolutely nothing. All that nonsense drove everyone away, but we continued, paying no attention to their jealous scoffing. We were lost in each other, and this time everything was going to go my way. N...
