  • 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 ...

  • Empty Space

    The sky is overwhelming sometimes. How big it seems when you look up and realize that… it’s endless up there. Full of nothing. Endless and endless amounts of space. Can you comprehend that? Emptiness… emptiness that never ever ends. I...

  • Pantone 286C

    From the window of her room, she could see the sea and the sky. Hard to see much else from the top of the highest tower in a castle perched on a cliff. On the best days, pale, fluffy clouds floated weightlessly in a cornflower sky, while their reflecti...

    Slow-motion Colors Lovers Let’s go be lovers, in a foreign country. Let’s forget that we ever had expectations, or obligations. Let’s be irresponsible and irrational, let’s forget about things like correct spelling and presentab...

  • Aloft

    Three days from the sea lies the city of Gezze. Gezze has no roads, no alleys, no footpaths. The buildings are squeezed one beside the other, so close together that the sunlight does not reach the ground floors of the homes. The citizens, therefore, do...

  • Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes (Mature)

    I can’t feel a damn thing. My hands drag down walls, bodies and doors. And there’s nothing. The air is heavily scented and too thick to cut through. I step into the small washroom and try to fill my lungs. The colors are wrong, but the colo...

  • The Sky

    The sky is large on large days and small on small days. What the hell does that really mean? Are some days bigger than others? I suppose days can feel longer and shorter, especially if those days have some big event, like a wedding, or a funeral, or a ...

  • Phantom

    There are no memories. Only the wind. Only myself. Even that is gone. I know what things around me are called. The tree is brown, its leaves are green. The sky is blue, clouds are white. The little dots below me are people, and when I move closer to th...

  • Unforgettable

    On the anniversary of Her death, you lay on the lush knoll staring up at the sky – Your sky. You see lucid greens, surrounding you like the rocking waves of vast oceans; you observe majestic golds shimmering with the bond you share together; and ...

  • In a landscape

    I drop down through the clouds and into the forest, my movement slow, almost suspended. The earth is coming up to meet me. My bare feet land softly on the forest floor. I take two breaths, inhaling my surroundings. It is daylight, and the pine trees ar...

    the dark sky is clear that is how we know the stars they are watching us.

  • red sky in the morning

    I woke up in a rowboat with a makeshift sail stitched of gray uniform fabric. The sky had a hazy strawberries and cream complexion that reminded me it was almost morning. I tried to remember what sailors said about rose colored skies, but the saying el...

  • Goodbye, Blue Sky

    It was quiet. Some would say “too quiet”, but she didn’t go in for that kind of cliche. A gentle breeze caressed her body and annoyingly pushed her hair into her eyes. The sun was out. Warm. Here in this open field, far from the cacophony of TV n...

  • The Sky Was Beautiful On Fire...

    As the sirens screamed and the fires howled and the people tore through the streets, and as the ground shook and the houses crumbled and the sky burnt to a cinder, we kissed each other through our tears.

  • Winged Girl

    I breathed in deeply, taking in the crisp fall air. I dipped my left wing, and turned towards the cliff top. I pumped my wings faster, increasing my speed, and loving every second of it. I laughed out in joy. There was nothing better than soaring throu...

  • What the Sky Has Been Crying

    The sky hates the gossip he hears. All of this talk that he has holes. All of this talk that he’s sick. He’s not helping. The sky has been crying. His tears collect with the inches, then the feet.

  • My Island Between Worlds

    I was sitting on a beach with soft, fine sand. I didn’t know how I had ended up there. I couldn’t see any foot prints leading to or from me. It was as if I suddenly appeared. The sky was a twisting torrent of colors- twilight’s blue h...

  • The End part 1

    Luke sat down amongst the newly dead and leaned back against the crumbling stone wall, its bullet scars a testament to the recent battle. Bits of grimy plaster rained down on him as he looked up at the puffy white clouds that swam slowly across the bri...

    He pulled a rumpled pack of cigarettes from his jacket pocket and bit one out, realizing too late that he didn’t have a lighter anymore. He willed his sore limbs into motion and pushed himself up off the floor, and looking down at his seat Luke ...

    He was looking paler and paler as more sweat poured from him to wash away the old, staining clothes that felt heavier and heavier on his body as the minutes passed by. The footsteps were getting louder now and Luke knew that they must be close. Then t...

  • The End Part 4

    The five men took a step back on instinct, but soon recovered and raised their rifles to take aim. He raised his pistol, which in truth wasn’t his having taken it from one of the recently dead, and looked down the sights of the dead man’s g...
