Dark Open Road

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned, and I am not sure where I should begin, as I ask those questions about the faithful being rewarded and will I miss the final call or warning for having lived this lie of a life? I can only name where I have been, and I know that I have been there and back again, as I ask that you stay inside the confessional until you hear me leave. While the darkness...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XIII

Claudia practices her gift alone.

Entry XIX – Practicing my gift has been quite the undertaking, especially when I am all alone. It is not that I am saddened by my loneliness, but it would be much easier to train if the Prior was still speaking to me. Nevertheless, I have attempted to replicate the process of sight into the Realm of Death through memory, and have had . . . some success. My first few efforts were...Read On

Welcome to Hell

I finally found the key to my memory. I'm so scared now that a firing squad would be more pleasant than the truth. I can just see what has been awaiting me, eluding me, all of this time.  It's the place where I used to work, a restaurant.   My body feels like a werewolf metamorphosising as the truth slowly unravels. I feel like Michael Jackson in Thriller, each time a new truth is known....Read On

Exuviae

Thunder echoing across these high desert plains, and the smell of rain in the air as my mind races as to what options I should be taking if the storm should head this way and unleash its fury as it breaks. Thinking back for some unknown reasons as to what we once did in the name of fun, and looking back has me wondering why we aren’t all dead or at least having been hurt badly. All of...Read On

The Lost Wish

Be careful what you wish for...

The caravan made it to the last oasis before finally getting home. The trip by all accounts had been successful. After the camels had been bedded down and the men had finished their evening meal of mutton and couscous, they began to talk of finally making it home and what they expected from their homecomings. The graphic details were too much for the old man. He had lost his wife and sole...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XII

Claudia and the Prior have a quick chat.

Entry XVII – I had a dream last night. A beautiful one, indeed. When I awoke, I did not want to rise, for I truly believed what I had experienced was real. It may seem strange, but in the dream, I was lost in the forest, and I very much enjoyed the wandering. The trees and ground were thick with freshly fallen snow, and the sun was high in the sky on a cloudless midday. My senses...Read On

Boom!

"Boom!," I hear a little voice coming from the bathroom. "BOOM!" I hear again, this time louder, and then there is the unmistakable sound of laughter. Children just love playing in the bathroom, running all the taps in the basin or filling the basin with paper towels to overflow them and create 'baths,' or making a mountain of bubbles with the foamy soap. I prepare myself for the worst as I...Read On

Renegade

Having it seem to be that I am caught off guard and not really prepared for the rest, and have the feeling that some prayers never reach the sky and I guess the same can be said about some wounds never healing as well as there being some wars that never end and continue to rage and sting. I have been a rebel for most of my days, and have always strived to be an individual, and not go along...Read On

The Dollmaker

A lonely 17 year old doll maker who creates a doll to be his companion and their struggles.

Year xxxx. Central Tech, the center of surrounding cities. Rain began to pour from the grey; cloud filled sky. Within the confines of the city's tallest building, a mature featured boy had set himself down in a chair, body parts surrounding him. Goggles placed over his eyes; he glides a hand over pale, supple skin. The boy tinkers around with a heart, closing up the chest after...Read On

Miracle Drug

There have been times when I want to take a trip to the inside of your mind and possibly spend the day there and see, and hear all the things you haven't said. I would also like to spend the time looking out of your eyes and seeing all that you see, as well as watch your thoughts form and then come about. Wondering if you would feel a thing when I hear you when you call? Maybe you would...Read On

Lowenna and the secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 29

Lowenna is alone, her magic almost gone, and what awaits her on the other side of the door

Chapter 29 Other Side Of The Door Lowenna looked at the large imposing door.  It was the first one she had seen since entering the labyrinth.  She didn't want to go back, not through the room with all those dead bodies. She tried the latch, it moved, and with a strong push the door creaked open.   Lowenna froze.  There was a dead body in the corner, not a skeleton, but an actual body....Read On

Message in A Bottle

Being a kid, no one minds him as he collects wine bottles around the neighborhood. Every night, he carefully takes out a piece of paper and scribbles anything that comes to his mind. Sometimes a rhyme he learned from school. Sometimes a drawing. Most of the time, little stories his mom reads to him at night. At dusk each day, he runs to the shore and places the bottle on the hollow of a...Read On

The Show Must Go On

Is this the final act

The final act. Today, on February 24th of 2017, we open another play. It's Billy Elliot the Musical. I have the role of George, and it's the biggest part I've had since I started acting in plays. This one will be the fourteenth that I've been a part of since I began with A Kansas Nutcracker. That was in December of the year 2013.  In this past December, I was in Nutcracker: A Kansas...Read On

Un-Invited

I am a stranger in a strange land standing here alone at the balcony railing, as I have done so often in the past looking down watching the scene un-fold below. With it, all like being something out of Dylan’s Desolation Row, and being able to see all yet, not being seen. As I stand here in reflective thought and contemplating the reason(s) or the folly of my being here as I stand here...Read On

Knife-Edge

Take just a step cried the sad man, and take a look down into the madness along with the patient queues headed for the gallows as songs can be heard for the hallowed. With only fear breaking the silence as all kneel and pray for guidance, as you tread the road above the abyss with a look down at the madman. While only spectres are the only ones who still have pity out in the alleys and...Read On

Outcast

The leprechaun sat by the tree in complete dismay, chained and cursed by his people. In their coming of age, leprechauns prove their worth to their kind by transforming stone into gold through mere touch. Each one is capable of doing it,  but the degree of purity varies. Those with purer feelings make the purest of gold. “I felt your touch, but your feelings are too strong and pure for...Read On

Sound Of Thunder

Lying here hearing the sound of thunder coming from the front that rolled in during the night, and sometime during or after the midnight hour as I find myself drifting off to dream. Starting to begin the crossing of those blue hills on the border there, as I enter into the realm of Morpheus, the dream lord and finding myself drifting deeply and crossing the river. Knowing that you are also...Read On

The Darkness

Time passes like it always does. But, this time here is different. This time I am alone. Alone, I have never been this alone before. It is not that sense of loneliness one gets when surrounded by people but no one who knows you. This is the loneliness that aches to one's inner soul. The kind one feels when their heart has been ripped away by a sudden loss. The loss an orphan, a widow, or...Read On

The River

My grandma and I sat on the bench, watching the river. I was eight, and she was almost eighty. “You see how still the river is, love?” she asked as she drew me close to her. “The deeper the river, the stiller it becomes.” I nodded. “Be like this river as you grow up. So deep, they will wonder and be drawn towards you. So still, you reflect all the beauty around you. So strong, you can...Read On

Blue Days

Every day seeing those passing looking like a chain of fools, and looking up at those blue skies above knowing that those blue days have arrived with every day seeming the same right now, and all the people are the same. Knowing when those blue days descended when I woke up with that blue moon in my eyes just about the same time these days dropped those blues down here on us and they...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XI

Claudia learns to control her gift.

Entry XV – I am troubled by my interaction with the Prior yesterday, as I may have brought about some ache to his mind. This morning I awoke and went downstairs to the dining room, expecting to find the Prior waiting for me by the stone fireplace. But he was not there. It came as a bit of a shock, really. He has always been awake before me, even throughout the journey to Sigtuna. I...Read On

Rumbling in the night

"Oh please God, make it stop!” she whimpered.

She first noticed it when she awoke in the dead of night. A rasping sound which was growing louder as she listened. She nudged her husband beside her, but he didn't stir. Louder still and rumbling, increasing in volume until she could bear it no longer. She nudged him again, harder this time but still nothing. She covered her ears and pulled the pillow over her head. “Oh please God,...Read On

When Teardrops Fall

How many paths have been tried by us and then failed? For there has been no one there to point a finger and no one to blame, and we are standing here in the dark light of the sun together out here at these distant crossroads as we have done in the past. Looking down those roads and wondering which direction to go, as you know that I will accompany you which direction you might choose...Read On

The Nurses. Chapter 42

“What have they done to you?” he whispered, his voice cracked with emotion.

Gibraltar, April 6h 1941.   Katarina and Maria remained at the hospital in Gibraltar for two weeks. Katarina's wound had healed quickly, at least enough for her to be released from medical care and return home. For Maria, it was the longest fortnight of her life. Never before had she been so idle. The hospital was very different from the sickbay on the Lakhota. It was far...Read On

Prelude To War

Having been down through the wild side of life where innocence dies, and where the coffins stay where the judges have lied and had the innocent condemned. Having looked in the mirror and stared at myself and wondered if that is really me or just the enemy to make peace with staring back at me from the shelf? Sometimes I wish for the confusion to come and wash over me and carry me to those...Read On

Her Freedom

Then Megan remembered the nine millimeter.

Megan sat cross-legged on her bed, the math book for her master's program open in her lap, when she heard the gunshot and Freeman's yelp. He had no time to protect or react. Not even the slightest growl. She sprang up from her position and shook uncontrollably, unable to move, knowing he was in the house. Her room door was closed, but not locked. She needed to lock it, but the shakes had a...Read On
