    I should have shut my mouth

    I should have stopped before

    the truth slipped out

    In Retrospect

    it did nothing to heal me

    I'm still broken inside

    only now you are, too

    In Retrospect

    Maybe you aren't broken

    Your flaw is that you ignore my

  • F you

    Your moving on, choosing someone who was not me, hurt like a white hot knife to my gut.

    At first I denied the pain, startled that I meant so little to you. I tried to ask you to show or tell me that I meant more.

    You said that I meant just enough.

  • Devils We Be

    I'm a monster. Born of rage, that primordial scream from birth hovers at the edge of my consciousness and beats against my vision like wind-blown torrents of rain against a windshield. Some days it's all I can do to keep lips that peel away from my teeth …

  • Monster

    I'm a monster.

    Every time I share my real feelings I upset those that I tell them to. They fight, they get angry, they take on my monster spawn emotionally inside themselves and struggle to disperse it. My monster has babies that grow and fester and infe…

  • Classy Lady: The Business at Hand

    "Telemetry from the probe has been parsed and analyzed, Captain," Lady responds. The ship's voice is a soothing alto, designed to accommodate for the crew as they recover. "The data has already been uploaded to your stations and synced with your datapad…

    The Classy Lady parks itself in a synchronous orbit above the asteroid Berger-Behregen before waking and decanting the crew. The ship locates and contacts the telemetry beacon planted in the surface of the rock while the members of the crew shake off th…

  • Heart's Desire

    "When will you understand that I love you?" I wrote. "I know it sounds crazy and incomprehensible given the circumstances, but my heart has a mind of its own. I try to rein it in, but it keeps running away after memories of you."

    "Little things, like son…

  • Ice Cream is Love

    I don't ever want to stop talking to you.

    I have trust issues because I love you.

    Love requires trust.

    Trust that I can't have.

    Therefore Love is false.

    False love hurts. It wounds, it stabs in the back.

    Therefore I have to cushion myself. I have to…

  • The Wrong Side of the River

    If you take the covered bridge over the River Ren and follow the twisting road that bisects the stagnant waters of the Coracotta Swamp, you'll find sickly trees in ones and twos that grow more numerous the deeper you go, until their limbs form a spiderweb…

  • The People of Night

    Our train of wagons, ten strong, traveled along the narrow ledges of the Rushaven Mountains. Even as slow as we were going many of the wheels squeaked but we dared not stop to oil them until dawn's blush seeped across the eastern sky.

    From this high up, …

  • An Equally Predatory Replacement

    The Walmart and its parking lot were gone, replaced by a fleshy dome. Colors swam inside, alternating back and forth between contaminated white of curdled milk and the oily yellow of spoiled butter. It heaved and sighed and rippled with jellied motion.

  • Italian Sonnet on my Present Purgatory

    I need to get my mind under control,

    Or else I might not ever find success.

    But when I try to focus, dread distress

    Engulfs me. Like a damn’d, eternal soul,

    I seem to see a future filled with fear

    And torment, doomed to fail the friends I cherish.

    My faul…

  • Lump In My Throat

    "Why won't you go to the wedding?" asked the sister of the groom, with an accusatory tone.

    "It would be awkward for me."

    "What about HIM?! His best friend not there??"

    "I'm a GIRL. I can't go to the bachelor party."

    "Go to the bachelorette party," she sai…

  • Braving the Storm

    Rain pelted the windshield of our station wagon and the wipers carried the water away in wide flat arcs. The radio was turned way down low until it was little more than a generic hum. Dad's fingers tapped the steering wheel as if he could still hear it. D…

  • A Life Worth Living

    Challenge the limits you set for yourself

    When you were too tired to predict the consequences

    Examine the desperation behind daily darkness

    A poisonous buildup within a practice of working through lunch

    And the costly decision to pay for drinks instead of…

  • Beneath the Flat Line

    Pressing into the mirror, I slid into shadow. Coldness suffused every cell of my body until the pain of freezing became numbness and unable to breathe, I drowned.

    Ghostly presences, silent and eerie, faded in and out around me. Seeing details was hard, l…

  • Doubt

    You've been my faithful companion for so long I can't imagine.....

    Not feeling

    your sticky sweetness in my mouth

    your crooked teeth grazing my ear

    your constant whispers

    and sweaty skin

    always accompanied by a shiver racing down my spine


    To cup my heav…

  • My Life's Work

    I've been straining to stretch my smile

    clenching my cheeks along with my teeth

    as sweat soaks my smooth armpits

    and my straight spine begins to spasm


    exhausting myself to keep my comfortable life

    of useless meetings and endless paperwork

    as I content…

    “Haha, mommy. You made a boob!” Kara Jean laughed.
