  • Fog of War

    They were waiting for us. “Ambush, that’s original.”, thought Alberts. It’s dark; feels industrial in here. I look at the team. These are kids, not soldiers. Got more teeth than pubic hair. “Sir, I smell ambush.” I g...

  • Mind Games

    “Listen to me, get on the train.” He said in a nervous tone. “No, i’m not leaving you.” she replied, tears streaking her face. “Take the kids, get on the train and leave, get as far away from here as possible.”...

  • Out Of Mind

    I stared out into the night the moon shown brightly on the lake, it called to me. I wished to answer it, I yearned to answer it. My heart thudded in my chest, ‘go’ it said ‘be what you are’. And what was that exactly, I still wa...

  • I Know Now

    I am from the future. I know this may sound specious, but let me explain. In the future, time travel to the past is possible, but seldom employed. In the future time travel to the past has no thrill, it’s not possible to learn from the past because t...

  • Tequila (Mature)

    “You know,” Irene said, taking a sip from a bottle of cheap, two-year-old tequila- the only thing her ex had left in their apartment. “We had a dog when we were kids. It was the sweetest thing in the world.” She was pacing, leaving tracks on he...

  • On My Mind

    What do you see when you look in my eyes? A tiny brown box or open blue skies? Maybe a happy, simple-mind, indecisive young teen, With no worries, no cares, nor faith to be seen? I have had my share in the tears and the sighs, With cheery hellos and so...

  • What's On Your Mind? (Mature)

    “What the..! Fuck! Shit! I mean, fuck man!…It’s alive man, it’s a-fucking-live!” “Easy!” He looked at his friend, shocked to shit in his psyche nurse whites, stained with drool and goo that echo the sick mashed...

  • Mind Your Head As You Enter (Mature)

    The neo-nuclear post-oil-crash age was a disaster for Cryonics Inc. The lack of faith in the future, more than the lack of cold cash – too little custom, no investment. And there hadn’t been any positive results – cryopreservation did...

  • An Invitation

    My mind is a mess, but I think that I’d like to let you peek inside.

  • OT 2

    I’ve always had this gift. I remember it from when I was younger, not understanding it, but knowing not everyone had it. I would have these dreams when I was a kid, they were so real I wouldn’t know if they were over when I woke up, or just...

  • Somnambulism

    The caffeine wearing thin I drift asleep But then In dues of time I find myself afoot In lucid dreams I walk On glowing streams Of course I know I dream Yet motor control lack The text I do depart I ad lib now A scene My mind projects From my subconsci...

  • A Kind of Fascination

    I find my mind inadvertently drifting towards you. It’s not heading towards any specific thought, just your “idea” of sorts, your essence. I’m not really sure there’s an attached emotion, either. Perhaps a touch of happine...

  • My Jedi Mind Tricks (Twitter Me This Challenge)

    “Sam, jedi mind tricks are for kids. Plus they arent real,” my older sister says with her all knowing tone. “Whatever,” I say with a growl while watching Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. “Go do the dishes,” she barks a...

  • Continued...

    I wipe the tears from my eyes with the sleeve of my sweatshirt. With my left foot resting on the ledge, I step up with my right. My whole body trembles, I do not dare to look down at the bright world below me. Instead I concentrate on the quiet world i...

  • In My Mind I'm Going to Carolina

    I looked around. “That must have been some kiss.” She laughed and stood, and the dog came bounding over to sniff at my ankles. “Well, it’s your fault. You distracted me.” “I should distract you more often.” Eve...

  • Here Comes the Rain Again

    She glared back at me. “I told you it was an accident! It’s all because you kissed me and then stared right into my eyes. I wasn’t prepared for that! I told you I was deep, and you said you’d take that chance.” I winced. S...

  • The Tracks of My Tears

    Another hour passed, and Jackie hadn’t returned. I messed up, and I messed up big. I knew Jackie was an amazing girl; that’s why I kissed her, after all. But until she had pulled me into her little mental dimension, I don’t think I re...

  • My Side of the Mountain

    There were some old, spooky-looking books at one end of the shelf—with heavy bindings and even padlocks. I was almost positive they were just props—from what I’ve read, inside your head is the last place you’d want to keep the Necronomi...

  • It's a Beautiful Morning

    Sunlight shot into the cabin through one of the windows, causing me to sit up with a start. The fact that I was inside the mental dimension of a lovely yet powerful sorceress notwithstanding, I must’ve fell asleep while I was reading. I guess tim...

  • Company for Breakfast

    The island was slightly larger than it looked from the shore, and consisted of a beach around a small copse of trees. In the middle of the trees was a picnic table, and someone had laid out a breakfast consisting of assorted pastries and a pitcher of o...

  • Breaking Bread

    That small, brief squeeze from behind. It was a small detail, but one that sparked a pleasant, tingly rush at the base of my spine, one that radiated up to the back of my neck. I inhaled sharply, letting the breath out in a sigh, trying to reach back q...

  • Into the Blue Again

    “So what happens now?” I asked, after we’d finished with breakfast and put everything away. “Well, I could keep you here forever,” Jackie admitted. “It would be nice to have someone there whenever I daydreamed…R...

  • I Can't Get Her Out of My Mind

    Any notions that it might have been a dream were dispelled when I had to go across town to pick up my car from Skinny’s. Jackie never did tell me how she’d gotten back to my place without it—she just said she didn’t have the keys. I...

  • In the (Not So) White Room

    It was cluttered, I had to admit. I mean, I didn’t really use my mind any more than the average A student; I worked hard, was good at recalling facts, but didn’t really use my brain outside of school for more than quoting movies and calcula...
