It takes me hours to get ready but it takes my date only minutes? What kind of bullshit...Read On


Look At Life

I look at life As if riding the tail on a kite More of the wind and distance of a thread Un-twining as if being carried away With seashells and echoes of the rising surf  On crest of high tides we sail our full moon With sensual sea salts of our endearing love As if riding the tail on a kite In jubilation of a ball of...Read On

Our True Love

True love is worth any price ...

Time stood still as our eyes met Feelings of pure love without regret Needing to meet during the night Avoiding others glaces while holding tight Forbidden love comes with a price Though sometimes it's worth the sacrifice Never has there been a reason To step out beyond this cold season Romeo and Juliet is not who we are inside I will not die for my father's pride I will leave behind...Read On


Through a Child's Eyes

This was our trip through The Badlands.

The sun rose behind us, as I drove my motor home out of the campground in St. Mary's, Montana. We headed west, our destination Badlands National Park in North Dakota. This was the end of the first week of a five-week trip driving around America. The girls sat at the table playing games and watched, as the miles flew by. They giggled and yelled, when they saw something they liked. We...Read On


Monster's Bane

The early years

I remember.....

It was like any other June 5, hot and humid, a slight breeze came up every few seconds. A yard full of kids ran around and had fun with no care in the world. I was nine, good looking and intelligent for my age. Jacob was eleven, sweet, kind, and way better looking than me. He was a genius for his age; well that’s what my parents would say. You could say we were the popular ones with the kids....Read On

What happens when we eat too much chicken and eggs?

Here I sit writing. Pardon me a moment. Something is poking me in the butt. Ouch, that hurt, as I pull a feather out of my butt cheek. I feel several other pin feathers there. I scratch my head with wonder. Why am I growing tail feathers? Am I changing and if so why? I eat a lot of chicken and eggs. I think I developed some chicken traits lately. I scratch around looking for nothing...Read On


Mixed messages

He came to her, but who was the second choice?

He entered their room online and she smiled and said, “Hi.” He simply replied, “I have something important to ask you...” Noticing he sounded nervous, she asked, “What?” “Umm... how would you like to go out with me?” In shock and needing a little time, she asked him, “Can I have some time to think?” He said, "Okay." An hour or so later, she was about to message him back to give...Read On



A fight between a medical droid and a patient...

NARRATIVE OF GORDON ARTHUR OF MARS - CHAPTER 3 : THE ROOM “ We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat. They do not exist. ” Queen Victoria 1890. Tiredness overcame me and I drifted back towards the sullen inkiness of sleep. I knew then in my soul that something terrible had overcome the ship and its crew. Unless I found a way out of this grey room in which I had...Read On


Divine Justice

Sometimes crime doesn't pay!

Arthur lived on his own, in the same council flat he had brought his bride home to 51 years ago. Where they had raised three kids and seen them fly from the nest out into the world. It was also where he had held his Irene as she breathed her last breath in their bed. The last seven years had been difficult and lonely. Life was quiet, too quiet. But that was going to change on a cold...Read On


Love's Angst

don't be defined - stay proud

being catergorized

Do not let growing up in the streets define you as a person? You are older now and don’t need to talk the street talk and slangs. Educate yourself to what you can be, not what you was. I do not want to be defined as a street thug or a ghetto rat But as a person who has learned to talk properly and has Left the streets to the streets. Because I do not have a college...Read On


October Mist

With wine and October mist Comes essence of grapes Corn silk in your hair  Wafting scent effervescence The aroma of love  Like a vine I cling to you  Sensual caresses  And morning dew kisses Early morn in fall meadows  Sparkles in your eyes Like Autumn leaves fluttering  And flower tiara in auburn hair My heart belongs to you With wine and October mist Simple things at best  ...Read On


The God That Always Was

Architecturally flawed demise Revelation gone unheard by the oblivious amassing Slow to realize what is happening Unfolding right before their puffy eyes Passing underneath every stuffy nose Watch as religion that no longer grows Like the communal virus that it is As it slows Continues to wither Then dies Dies Dies D-I-E-S ! Dioceses eaten away by the heresies Over the centuries...Read On

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Smears of glowering grey Roll smudged across the violet sky, Dusk sinking to Twilight sinking to Star-studded velvet Roiling night. A whispered curse is a wraith in the pit, Phantasms flying across the soul Where emptiness weeps And the echoes of pain And the twisted limbs of The fallen oak lie....Read On


The drive

The drive home from the supermarket

Looking at the head in my lap Moving all over as I drive The bad shape of the road  Making the head move all over Looking at the head My mouth waters Looking into the passenger seat Looking at the buns Admire the big buns Thinking of the buns with the meat in between I feel so hungry for it The melons are so big Sitting in between the seats hard to change gears I wish I had...Read On


These Arms

These arms, must hold you and Never let go. There is an invisible, permanent tether attached from me to you. That cannot ever be broken or pulled apart. The material is stronger than steel or iron for it is made of love. Hold my hand so I may kiss yours again and again. My lips shall never tire of you or of all the places I have never been. If you are not within reach of me you are too far...Read On


London Love

For J, mon amour. Je t'aime.. We danced slowly during dawn in Scotland Pink, blue, lavender with the golden sunlight Peeking its way through the beautiful morning hues We kissed beneath the blanket of stars in London The dark indigo sky wrapping itself around us Kisses so gentle, sweet, so very full of love Sipping petit noir’s avec de la crème in Paris While staring out the...Read On


My fears

Sometimes past tortures will haunt your future and destroy your dreams no matter how long it's been

She wanted him To see what's inside Tired of the fear Not wanting to hide A heart beat of promises Ready to be fulfilled So much love Ready to be spilled Body forever aching Needing his arms Missing his voice Captivated by his charms He sends her a rose Each and every day To remind her that It's not a game to play Time to let him know That things aren't simple Deafening his ears From...Read On


Hidden Inside ~ 11

A girl finds solace in the eerie woods

My throat ached, my ears pleaded, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't stop the scream from tearing through. Pent up fear rushed out like water through a broken dam. My eyes watered with it. The monster from my dream was standing just in front of me, her jagged teeth glittering with a cruel smile. A sharp crack sounded as a hand connected painfully with my cheek. My screams fell silent...Read On

Tomorrow: Chapter Eighteen

If I told, would you take me in? ~Philena.

It's an understatement to say that Stepmonster wasn't all too happy when I got home twenty minutes late. But because he was hungry, he let me make dinner first. Small reprieve, but a reprieve all the same. He had me sit down next to him and watch him eat. Not that I was hungry. In fact, it made me even more thankful for the stop at the cafe that Adam made. Stepmonster tried his version...Read On


Why is the sky so silent

Thou shall not kill

Why is the sky so silent. Clouds hang around like junkies. The sun, floating mountebank, hides slyly, and is as clever as he looks. On a black branch sits a crow, its ragged feathers an insult to decorum. He pretends to preen, but gets on with his real business, the old amoral spy. We won’t find meaning here, in this devil’s back- yard. One of the higher branches lifts its bony...Read On
