Tears for the Garden
I checked the hurt on my tongue. It was hard not to respond in kind, a struggle to not spit red-hot knives aiming for the open wound on her heart.
I wouldn't do that. She's hurting enough already. Even through the internet I could feel it bleeding o…Posted 3 years ago
Panning for Gold
“Why are you here.”
Wasn't it obvious? There were lines around the block to sign up for the E.D.C. and had been ever since the attack that melted southern California. “To fight aliens, same as you.” I tried to keep the irritation out of my voice but knew…Posted 3 years ago
Everything was wrong. I didn't want to be Thomas Tinsley. He looked like a dope. It took effort not to snatch the driver's license back and toss the whole wallet into the woods.
Into the woods.
That thought brought images, feelings, and sounds. Leaves, …Posted 4 years ago
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…Posted 5 years ago
See You Next Time
I awoke with a start to noise from downstairs: a series of thumps punctuated by broken glass, as if someone had tipped out the contents of my liquor cabinet.

I'm having trouble handling my life today
I've been ridiculed, mocked, and I've been clocked
And I have no defense, my senses locked
I've been disrespected, my pride is all infected
The world in online life reflected

Her Eyes Were Shining
It was hard to swallow her pride and her real feelings. Seeing that huge smile and those two brown eyes so crinkly with joy warmed her heart. She loved Mr. Brown Eyes. Seeing the two blue eyes above two rosy cheeks and a line of baby teeth was supposed to…Posted 5 years ago
Shh, part 10
“My names Lennart Larsson. I'm looking for the occupant of 163 C.”
“Goddamnit, Lenny.” A disgusted voice said.
Lenn's gut twisted. The voice belonged to Liv's brother, Ruger. What was he doing here? He didn't even live in Japan. Still, he rallied gamely…Posted 5 years ago
It makes me angry to think that I can never have you and angry that I'm acting like a child. I'm angry that my dreams are crushed and angry that life goes on and you can go on without me.
That's what hurt the most; knowing that I can be forgotten in the …Posted 5 years ago
I hear her words, but I'm listening to their interpretation, screaming liar in my head.
Words are all shiny and sympathetic when they are sarcastic as well as genuine. It's hard to tell the difference. She was so much like someone I used to know, I co…Posted 5 years ago
The Shoe Fits..
"But you're a fairy Godmother!" screamed Cinderella before collapsing on her bed and sending a dozen birds tittering out of her window. She began to sob. It was all right there before her, the castle, the perfect life, the perfect husband, and just like t…Posted 8 years ago
