    Laying inside a field of wildflowers, Lana stretched out luxuriously, feeling every blade of grass slide along her skin. She felt so intimately connected with her surroundings, not just the flowers but the tree in the distance, and the vast pink of a dawn…

  • Darkness Descending

    The darkness ahead grew, looming over Malika like a physical presence. She couldn't see it, but she knew it was there all the same. She rushed toward to it blindly, cutting down any and all of the Lesser Dead who dared cross her path. Morduth burned hot w…

  • Reinstalling my System (8)

    And one day, I will find the way,

    The strength to tell my spouse,

    And hope to Heaven I won't lose

    My love, my kids, my house,

    My inner peace; that I'll retain

    My home, and if I may,

    I'll ask for their consent to love

    In my own natural way.

    So yes, this …

  • Reinstalling my System (9/9)

    And please, my Lord, I beg Thee, heal

    The pain in one and all,

    Which I in my confusion caused.

    Please hear this sinner's call.

    I did not mean to harm a soul,

    But to my endless rue,

    So much frustration, anger, hurt

    I managed, still, to do

    O I was wrong s…

    These moments when I am supposed to be in control are careening out of my grasp. It's not a wild ride, either. It's like a slow plummet. You can see exactly how it will happen and the…

    Day five that Brent has woken up ravenous and exhausted. Officially it's day five. It's been at least five days since I noticed a pattern and decided to track it's course. I'm not surprised that he's exhausted. He told me about his dreams and …

  • When the Cure Becomes Worse than the Disease

    It's been raining for two days straight. No matter what I do I can't see how to stop what I started. Honestly, it's hard to see anything through the wall of water beyond my window. The house across the street was little more than a looming blur and the st…

  • Friendship Anxiety

    I hope that I can find a proper manner

    To make new friends and treat them as they’d choose,

    So they feel safe and cheerful ‘neath my banner

    And not be overwhelmed, creeped out, bemused.

    -

    I know there’s something wrong, but no one tells

    Just where I erred…
