  • Broken

    Lips touch. Spell is cast. A pause, eyes closed, savoring the moment. Further. Deeper. Eyes locked into oneness. Then, confusion. Doubt renders the holy unity broken. The leap of faith falls short of the other side.

  • Morning Treat

    Ryan paces into the living room, Jessica sits in the breakfast nook, silent like only a woman can be moments before an argument. Living together for only two weeks, and I’m already in trouble Ryan thinks. Jessica reviews their thirty days as a c...

  • Oh love...

    It’s that beginning stage of being of being in love that’s the only part that’s really worth it. The one where you are all happy with butterflies in your stomach, dreaming of all the possibilities you have with the girl you love. You imagine what...

  • Funny Someday

    This is what nostalgia is, though hunting it down is cheating a little. The city air is hot and dry, and the lake smells like summer vacation. He’s in dress shoes instead of cowboy boots, and he buys the bottle because it is her favourite brand, ...

  • Stains (Mature)

    “I didn’t think you’d care! I mean sure, she’s your sister but it’s not like we’re an item or anything. Jesus, fuck, Christ! Call me when you get this.” With an unobtrusive little beep, I hung up the phone and ...

  • Vapor

    She knows that when she steps into a room all the air turns to vapor. Whisked like a blender beater, pulling that moisture to her like a hydration vampire. Saturated by the moment, people can do nothing else but freeze like cubes of perfectly formed cr...

  • Delete All Details?

    I deleted the number from my phone and the ‘Are You Sure’ dialogue box came up forcing me to perform the painful button press once more. I knew it was a futile gesture, I’d long ago memorised the number I was now deleting. It’s ...

  • Garden of Remembrance

    Jon’s eyes drifted to her. Bev sat chained by her kennel, rocking on her haunches, and staring at him like he was a stranger. She wants to kill me. He let his gaze move to the willow by the gate. He still remembered the summer when they met; he&#...

  • She came

    “Hey, we should probably talk about something.” I hadn’t realised how much I’d dreaded hearing those words until I did. I just nodded. “Can I come in?” She asked, and again I nodded, quashing the urge to correct her ...

  • She left

    “Please?” There was an edge of desperation in her voice that made me look up but I couldn’t stand the pain in those blue orbs so I turned away again. “What? What do you want me to say, Cherise?” I regretted my tone but I w...

  • And again

    “I can’t do this any more, Chaz.” She stood, pushing herself up and standing over me. I didn’t follow her gaze with mine, I didn’t even look up. “Let’s just be neighbours from now on.” She walked toward t...

  • Once more

    Without realising it, I’d walked out into the middle of the room as I stared into the past. Fear made a metallic taste rise in my mouth and I swallowed with some difficulty. What was happening to me? I hadn’t felt like this since…sinc...

  • Meadowsweet

    She grinned, reminded of a lyric, and suddenly burst into song. John loved that about her; that uninhibited beauty, that fearless, vivacious joy. She closed her eyes and swayed into the words a little, her simple summer frock a lush red berry against t...

  • To Tell You Goodbye

    I don’t know how to turn this pain into words I don’t know how to tell you how much that I hurt. I don’t know how to say that its all because of you but I know its getting harder for me to say “I love you too”. You always...

  • the Parents (Mature)

    “Why do you have to do that? You know how my parents are!” Emily was furious with me. “Yeah, they’re overly conservative, uninformed, biggots!” I cried angrily. “They were raised that way!” “I don’t...

  • the Couch

    It was uncomfortable to sleep on a couch after having shared a warm bed with Emily for over a year. It didn’t feel right without her body snuggled next to mine, or her breath on my neck and her leg nestled betwixt my own. My conscience weighed on...

  • Sophia

    The hardwood floor creaked under my weight and she sat up in bed with a gasp. Through the dark I could feel her eyes on me, hurt and disappointed. “I…” I didn’t know what to say. ’I’m sorry’ sounded so lame. &#...

  • Janet's Pain

    He’s looking at her again. Tammy something. That girl from his school. They’ve barely known each other for years. This is like the second time I’ve seen her. She’s this fragile thing with flowy blond hair and big blue eyes and s...

  • Blind

    “You will have great fortune in love.” I read the fortune cookie’s painfully ironic message again for the eighth time while Jon continued prattling on. I think he was still going about his job, some self-inflated middle management pos...

  • Where Passion Dwells

    Where does passion dwell when it ceases to show? Where do the potential smiles hide when there is no joy left to know? Passion, smiles, laughter and butterflies; the things that disappear when a relationship starts to die. Growing more distant with eac...

  • What Changed?

    You never used to tell so many lies; you always used to apologize. But now there is no honesty and not a single apology. What changed? You respected me and showed me how to turn my hopeless life around. You no longer listen, you no longer hear, and I&#...

  • Girl Noses

    I like this girl’s nose. It’s kinda-sorta bulbous at the end. Starts poking up at the middle of the bridge, and practically curves upward at the tip. It’s just a little bit too big. But it works, damnit. It seems to point at the place...

  • The Gift

    “I made it just for you.” She held out a small brown package to me, her eyes bright with anticipation. “Should I open it now?” She nodded eagerly. Tenderly I pulled the piece of string that held the package together. The bow came loose, and I p...

  • Back In Town

    She pulled back her long brown hair, and put her bangs up with a tiny clip – they were getting in the way of her interesting read. She was reading one of those teen books that everyone raves about. Her phone beeped. She put the book down, holding...
