Three Stations

Standing here in the courtyard and leaning against the wall wondering why I have been directed to be here at this moment, and instead I know I should be heading out and keep on keeping on down the line. I know that there is one out there who will haunt me along with those secret souvenirs shared, and those are some of the thoughts that keep me warm at night along with the symmetry and...Read On

Tangled In Blue

Sitting here after getting off of a call with an old friend who can be rightly labeled as the person who saved my life roughly thirty-three years ago. As I am still calling in order to touch base and I know he is still on my side through all and the aftermath we have both been through, and there are times when it seems as there is nothing left at all I know he is still there. Making me...Read On

Lowenna and the secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 31

Run Rique, She is after you.

Chapter 31 The new hunter of the maze Rique was running as fast as she could, but Lowenna was faster.  The only advantage she had was her long or high jump.  Still, Lowenna was gaining on her.  She ducked as a pale pink ball of fire shot over her head.  She couldn't die, not like this.  She had to save everyone.  She had promised Callan that she would destroy the crystal and save everyone. ...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XVII

Entry XXIII – I was awakened in the dead of night by the sound of a slow drip of liquid somewhere within my living quarters. Rancid air filled my lungs, staining my heart with a dreadful terror to open my eyes. There was a voice I heard in the distance; faint, but sharp, that of a woman. I curled the blanket closer to my face and sealed my eyelids tight. She moaned in a struggle for...Read On

The Approaching Disaster

It was precisely that which had been implemented to prevent the disaster which ultimately ensured it. The great minds of old, abandoned to dusty shelves and the weathered ways of some, shone beyond the populace. War to end war. Theft to end theft. Slaves to their desire, their noble goal distorted. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  ...Read On

silence

I laid on a couch, and she sat on another couch in silence. Then she had uttered with a mockery smile who is the older? You or Laura? I had answered "I don't know," and went on during the study period; we had been in the same grade. The stupid elder women: ooh! I had remembered your birth; I had visited your parents to congratulate them. After six months Laura came to the world. I...Read On

Delusion

Delusion. It exists, at least to some degree, before us all, shaping our perceptions to varying degrees, allowing one to hold so steadfast to a position which denies the humbling reality of honest introspection. Yet, it is through the apathy of others that such deceptions persist throughout, unchallenged for want of integrity or desire, knowledge or power, respect or honesty. And so, it...Read On

The True Glory

In the end, we doing the right thing...

Fellow future reformers, lend me your eyes, hone in your ears and silence your mouths; The mind has fallen, and we bathe in its downfall. To be in such Republic, and no matter what class you are from, we all take sips from the same cup of misery. From a lowly vagabond, to a common sense plebeian, or a humble aristocrat, we have our disdain towards the most failed of statesmen who happen to...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XVI

Claudia meets with Vukan.

Entry XXII – I arrived at the library just before the twilight hours, searching through the cases of books for a few minutes to find where Vukan had been waiting. At first, I thought maybe he had returned to his own quarters, as he was seemingly nowhere to be found. There were a few students throughout, but not nearly enough to consider any part of the library occupied. I was going...Read On

Acronym

Having heard some people say that some prayers are never heard or answered, along with some wars never ending and some wounds never healing. I know that I won’t grow old gracefully, as well as knowing I won’t go easily and will probably be found in the dust somewhere near the road I was following. After having been a rebel or an individual for most of my life, and usually having been...Read On

Night Flight

There are times when it seems I just can’t understand some things that just might be so clear, and yes, I am guilty of being hard on myself just like many others are on themselves. Still, there might be a last time that might be drawing clear with the second hand catching as it always does. Yet, so much has been wrong and it is doubtful if it can ever be put to right, just like hearing...Read On

Sailing away to a new life

Sailing away to a new life

Sailing away to a new life There was a clash of thunder and a flash of lightning.  The rain lashed down, soaking Peter Donnie as he stood there looking back at the city.  His rucksack on his shoulder, and a carrier bag with some of his clothes “All I have in the world.  Not a lot to show for ten years of marriage.” He thought to himself. He stood there no emotion showing on his face as...Read On

She grabs another, this time a bar of chocolate and stuffs the whole bar to her...Read On

Fearless

When fear must conquer....

He is thinking ... "Jump high..." "Free falling..." The voice in his head said. "Trust me" "Close your eyes" "Spread your arms" "Now jump!" Taking a deep breath as he follows the voice talking in his head. Taking the flange. The winds hauling from where he is standing. He jumps off from the top of the rocky cliff to the ranging sea below. Waves smashing to the big rocks. Floating...Read On

I discovered gardening recently. Yes, I know I didn't invent sticking some seeds in the dirt and hoping it turns into something, I mean I recently discovered the hobby, which is now an obsession of mine. Growing up, my father had a vegetable patch. I remember very vividly each summer looking at the bumper crop of sweet corn, tomatoes, cabbages and herbs that had grown. Back then it...Read On

I wrote this on like 2 hours of sleep, but it was in high demand

Earl had finally driven away from the isolated home in the middle of nowhere. The home was obviously rundown and in need of repair, but the obese middle-aged man couldn’t be bothered to fix anything. He didn’t care about the condition of his home so long as the fridge had cold beer. A lone black car pulled up to the residence, and a tall, thin man in an overcoat and fedora stepped out. He...Read On

YEAR 10 AG (AFTER GODS)

*The roaring crowd cheered as the gates opened and a lion came out. The lion slowly walked out, basking in glory as the crowd roared on. I watched in horror; I couldn’t believe the madness in front of my eyes. In the center of the arena was a young skinny fragile looking boy, he was chained to a cub on his left foot. He had a thin stick that was poorly sharpened on one end. It had bite...Read On

Winter Sun

Sitting here and hoping I can find assurance that my doubts will finally leave with the first step being the one that’s believed in. I don’t know if I am heading down or falling from grace, and feeling those warm winds blowing here under those hard-blue skies and wondering if I am heading into the calm of an eye of a storm?

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XIV

Claudia thinks of her future marriage to Henry Beauclerc.

Entry XX – Throughout much of the morning hours, my clustered thoughts have left me wondering what exactly my wedding to Henry Beauclerc will be like. If I may write honestly, I do not know where these thoughts have come from. Perhaps it is the light of the morning sun, rising into the cloudless blue sky. I have not seen the sun in a few days, and its warmth has romanticized my mind. ...Read On

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
