“There’s an entire world already inside each person, much less a neighborhood. Each will remain colorless and flat, however, unless fleshed out by stories.”

Creature Of Freedom

Sometimes I look up at the twirling blades. The blades of the wind creator on the ceiling. I will turn it off and watch as the speed goes down to a slow dance. Moving in a perfect rhythm, like the melodic beat of a heart. I will be […]

Always And Forever

She seemed to always remember. Always remember the way the sun reflected in his eyes. Flecks of gold dazzling through and through. Golden perfection that matched his dark, wild hair. Gorgeous and magnetizing, she thought to herself. “What?” he asks, noticing her gaze. “Nothing,” she shakes her head, […]

Miss Midnight

Oh, Miss Midnight. The splendid marvels in the sky are such a rarity to me. An exhibition of heavenly curiosity. Imagination set up in the grace of allurement. Stunning display of wonder. A sensation of passion spreading through the gleam of your eyes. I write best late at […]

The Stigma (Chapter 1)

“Keegan Jones! Belongs to the Stigma!” The announcer yells this out as if there should be applause to follow. As if the crowd should be proud. His rough, withered hand grabs my wrist and lifts it into the air. As if I should be proud. I wasn’t proud […]

Nocturnal Fairy

The lights that flicker and the one’s that just turn on by themselves, aren’t done with the perceptions that the unexceptional human being would instantaneously evoke themselves with. The lights did not behave that way because of an electric malfunction, a storm, a rat…and come now…the light is […]

Canyon of Lost Love

There once was a girl. She was one of beauty. Gorgeous, golden locks of hair that reached her waist. Eyes that were a sapphire blue, as blue as the bluest oceans. She had straight, graceful movements that kept her tall and proud, whether she was in a rush […]

Sapphire Witch (Chapter 1)

The stage towered far above the crowd and for a moment, it felt as if they were bowing to the power I held. I stand still, hiding away in tremors of fear I might have. On top of this stage, staring back at the gazes of the considerably […]

Monsters Are Not Real

It’s only half-way through that I can’t stand the consuming, dark gloom of the room any longer. I stand, my movements clumsy from my quivering legs. With shaky steps, I make my way out of the room. The grief and misery was too overpowering, and I wanted to […]

Silent Breathtakers (Novella – Part 2)

I awake with a gasp and sit up in bed, the world slightly spinning. Bed….my bed…in my bedroom. There was no way I could have dreamed all of that, could I? Was my mind really that creative? No. I jump out of bed and rush to the bedroom […]

Silent Breathtakers (Novella – Part 1)

The pavement was drenched with the burden of a past downpour from a vigorous thunderstorm. The darkness that was developing over the slippery streets was overcast with shadows of a moonless night. I had to wait in the library for the cloudburst to pass by and by then, […]

Dead Man Jettison (Novella – Part 4)

Everything around Gale seemed to be going in slow motion as he raises a hand and a huge wave splashes onto deck, washing the crew away from his father, the area around his father completely dry except for the blood starting to drip. Gale feels like his breath […]

Dead Man Jettison (Novella – Part 3)

“What do you think you’re doing Blinky?” Blinky? Gale thought to himself, why would he want to do this? Blinky was an old pirate with a horrible limp and a gruesome eye-twitch, giving him the name, he had. He had always been quiet and held-back and nobody knew […]

Dead Man Jettison (Novella – Part 2)

Dead Man Jettison (Novella – Part 1)

The exorbitant, baneful waves crash over the already, slippery deck, as another horrible and cruel storm went through the process of going over the dark sea and frightening the crew aboard it. The ship rose and fell and rocked and creaked as the violent waves slammed into its […]

The Holiday Disease

It’s as if the New Year was only yesterday. Now it’s time for the holidays to start the yearly explosion that spreads the airborne, extremely contagious, holiday disease.

Writer And The Window

The Writer sits alone. She is in a booth at a restaurant. No food at her table, no people beside her. Her family is there, but she’s chosen to sit apart from them. Not because she’s angry, but because their table is full, each seat occupied. The Writer […]
