The Color of Dreams

“How ya doing?” I say to the empty chair next to me, like I actually expect it to talk back. It won’t, of course – I know it won’t – but there’s something refreshingly simple about being able to talk to inanimate objects and know they’ll never talk back. You don’t really wait for a response because you know one’s never going to come. It’s a known, and I find myself liking knowns more than...Read On

DAUGHTER’S LIGHT

Man’s oath for a better tomorrow despite hardships.

The time was of misery, the time was of treachery, the time was of backstabbers. It was the time where evil won, it was the time where good lost, it was the time where the poor were pulverised to dust; it was like any other time, in any age, in any era. He sat in his chair and gathered his thoughts; like a ghost he found himself flowing through time. The events of his past, the incidents he...Read On

Charlotte Sometimes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_defwv03IfQ

She fled. The tears tore not just from her soul, but from those who took the time to notice her escape. "How could he cut me that deeply? Preying on my insecurity, preying on my pain," she asked herself. It was a crowded throng. She had thought it was just another date and a walk along the boardwalk, but then..... She fought through the tears back to her car. What went wrong? What did...Read On

The League of the Young and Supernatural (5)

A supernatural organization founded by rogue aliens fight to protect the human race.

Ch. 5 *Elian* Maybe if I hadn't been raised on a planet full of outcasts, I'd be more extroverted. Public places made me uncomfortable, especially ones full of drunken humans who could get violent at any given moment. If it weren't for my mother granting me my ghost abilities, I'd be a complete loss for a son. Life would become unbearable. I gripped the door handle and pushed it...Read On

Dedicated Love

Iris Marie Rose, foster kid, is surprised when she catches the eye of the attractive Harry Styles.

|| Iris || I sat at an orange picnic table, waiting for my interview. I ran my hand through my chopped hair, letting the winter sun warm my scalp. The families weren't supposed to be shopping, it was supposed to be a 'getting to know you' visit, but it was an audition and everyone knew it. I was worried- I didn't want to get placed. I would rather stay at this crappy foster home until I...Read On

Ancestor Chapter 1 : Xaine

Um well hello I suppose. My name is Xaine as you probably already know if you're reading this I guess. I've never written my own record before but, as I am approaching my seventeenth birthday, my father Barrek gave me this book and said that it was time I started. You see I am a human and we humans value our ancestry very highly. We believe it is our duty to record our lives for the benefit...Read On

Things happen when you least expect them

Chapter Nine - Oasis I grab the saddle clothes off the railing, put them in place on Marina’s back before proceeding to put the saddle on her. Once I have everything put on her properly and have checked that everything is secure, I put her bridle, reins and the bit on her.

Did You Betray

My trust. Did you betray it? Did you? I trusted you implicitly. I did. Did you betray that? I know you didn't. Because you adore me. Right? So you couldn't possibly have betrayed my trust. True? I'll continue to believe that. I'll always, forever, believe that. The doubt seeps in. It can't help but seep in. Something tells me you did. You did. Oh my god. I trusted you....Read On

Dave's Place Chapter 2 - Janet

"Welcome to Dave's Place." Walking in was a cute latina mujer. She was about 5' 4" with curves in the right places. I was obviously interested. I could only hope she'd pick up. I try to just flirt lightly with the customers, but sometimes I can't help myself. "Hola," she replied. "¿Como esta?" I think she was trying to catch me off guard, but I've lived in Texas a long time. " ¿B ien, y...Read On

Amber Part 32

The seconds seem to drag on as Bruce sat there with his mind struggling to understand what he had just been told. The stunning blond sitting next to him had just admitted to forging his signature on Lea's birth certificate and he was at a loss for words. Part of him understood why she did it. She didn't want the name of the baby's Father to be listed as unknown on the legal document because...Read On

The Identity of Joyce Whitman

written from an idea that came to me at work.

Joyce tapped a pen against the IRS Auditor’s desk nervously. The dark haired auditor was quietly reading from a stack of papers. “So, this year you have worked in twelve states, earning $448,227 dollars from 37,000 some odd hours of work this year.” The pen tapped faster. “Yes, that is correct.” “How many identities have you sold this year?” The pen rattled against the table now. ...Read On

A supernatural organization founded by rogue aliens fight to protect the human race.

Ch. 4 *Sakura* It wasn’t clear as to how long I was being carried. 20 minutes, Maybe half an hour? All I was focused on were the noises happening around me. Maybe if I listened close enough, I could navigate back to my apartment after breaking free. Whoever was carrying me was definitely smart in his actions. He batted the sack around as if I were just luggage being transported from one...Read On

Time

more precious than anything

I love my boyfriend. He knows me. He cares. Last birthday, he gave me the perfect gift. He didn’t buy shoes or clothes, didn’t splash out on expensive perfume or jeweled adornments. He didn’t sweep me off to a fancy restaurant or ply me with French champagne. He did so much more. He plotted, spent days negotiating, organising, to give me the one thing he knew I needed - time. ...Read On

Carnivale

Deals with an event that took place and the circus it became

Postcards have been made of the circus and it’s parade that was recently in town and are being sold on the streets, which I observed with the girl from the north country fair on the balcony at the turning of twilight as the stars turned red, and we both looked out on the sea of madness which was like either a view of the abyss or a pitching queue to the gallows. As the circus parade’s...Read On

It's complicated

Well this isn't exactly a poem, more of just thoughts.

Some people feel the need to end their life, I don't understand why. I know I've felt this way and sometimes I was so close to actually doing it. The thing is, I know that maybe one day living will be worth the struggle and hopefully all the things that I've gone through, or that you've gone through, will all be worth it. I'm not saying that it will for sure be worth it and I'm not saying...Read On

Ch. 3 *Jinx* “Zeta, you can’t just waltz into someone’s house unannounced,” I argued, my eyebrows aching from furrowing over my eyelids for so long. “It’s not like they’ll know we’re there! We do this in public buildings! What makes this any different?” Zeta inquired, looking more confused rather than annoyed. “It’s someone’s personal space! Their private property! Plus, it’s twice...Read On

Daria comes back to hound and haunt Stefan. He and Polina save Marcia and Naomi.

As she sat, she shifted from the shimmering wraith to her human visage. She...Read On

Beyond The Broken Window : Chapter One

I’m sitting in my room doing my homework when I hear the doorbell ring. I get up from my desk to go answer it. Before I can get there my mom already answers it. I can’t quite make what she’s saying, or who she’s talking to. I can tell that the other person is a girl, but I’m not sure if it’s Scarlet. I keep watching as my mom moves away from the door, and invites the person in. I don’t...Read On

Spiders: A Caution

Trigger Warning: Lots of spiders. Lots and lots of them.

This is a public announcement: Spiders are everywhere. You will have no doubt seen them, crawling about. They may appear normal, but they’re far from it. Many of them have evolved to understand our language, and due to our sensitivity about them, are gearing up to wage war upon us. Spiders normally aren’t harmful, until you hurt their feelings. It is the emotional hurt that makes them...Read On

Why?

Prepare to hear the oath of a screwed up introvert with feelings.

The main reason for coming to like you again was for self-inflicting pain. Our friendship was reconciled, and immediately afterwards I was engulfed in a sea of guilt. And yeah of course, a shit ton of time passed on and you had dated two other people. Moving on is a thing, I get that. That's all fine and dandy. But pain was shot at you for no correct reason at a point in time that...Read On

How Long, The Wait

Michel Legrand is playing. Music from The Other Side of Midnight. Moving. Moving me to wonder if I will see her on the other side. Of midnight. I've counted the midnights as I stay up late. Waiting. Perhaps a message will appear. Perhaps not. So. No. Have to go. It's time to go to bed. Finally going to sleep, until the dawn. Dawning realization that no message has come. ...Read On

Last word

Her face was like thunder. Her familiar open smile was replaced by a thin, grim line of compressed lips and eyes which usually sparkled now flashed like lightning.  Fittingly, rain and unseasonal hail bounced off the restaurant windows as she stared intently into my face. No, she stared at me with piercing blue eyes. I offered a tentative smile and shrug of shoulders. “I mean it,”...Read On

The Circulation of Shadows

Sitting here late at night and half asleep I seem to hear a voice calling me, as I listen and wonder if it is only in my mind or is it coming from someone I failed in some way or merely left behind? To sort it all out I let all of the good and bad guys I have been along with the demons and angels who defeated them come together in me now as I greet them like a cast that’s been assembled like...Read On

Bugged

He loved killing insects, until one day they'd finally had enough.

When he heard a loud, sharp crack, he instantly knew what it was. He checked the sole of his sandal and saw that he had stood on a cockroach, one of its legs still twitching. It didn’t matter. He was always standing on them, most of the time on purpose. Stanley Marwood was on his way to the fridge to retrieve milk. Upon opening it, the sudden light sent more cockroaches scuttling around,...Read On
