This chapter contains racist dialogue, including the 'N' word, some may prefer avoiding.

  “Hey, good lookin’, what ya got cookin’ tonight?” At the sound of Darrell Ray’s cocky, teasing voice, Bebe gave him an unhurried glance. Then she took her time putting away an unread folder, turning off the fluorescent desk light and covering the typewriter. When everything was in order, she leaned back and met his gaze. It was way past the lumberyard’s two o’clock Saturday closing time....Read On

In A Lifetime

A view of the current political landscape

Shadows are falling, and I have been standing here all day, with time seeming to be running away and there is no reason to really be anywhere.

I Ain't Broke

Here we go again

 Okay, fine! I will admit it then. Here goes. I am an addict. Are you happy now? No? Well, what else do you want from me? (Heavy sighs, eye rolls, stomping my feet) My story? Why?

Ouija

ouija

It all started as a game. A macabre game that was transformed into a horrible nightmare. She looked at me. Her sad eyes foreshadowed what was going to happen. And before midnight, in the way hours before had unveiled that spirit board, she died in my arms. With a slight and definite sigh, she left her body. And the spirit board refused to continue playing.  ...Read On

John's Story

Poor poor John

John held perfectly still as he leaned against the tree. The deer moved cautiously out of the trees onto the meadow. First, a doe with her fawn stepped out. Looking all around, walking sort of jerk, jerk, look. Finally, the rest followed, last of all came the buck. Still cautious, he stepped forward with authority, like when Dad came in for supper. Holding his breath, afraid anything...Read On

Seagulls Don't Give A...

Are we sure human beings are the smart ones?

As long as no one tried to shoot or eat me, I'd like to be a bird. A seagull, to be exact. Flying around, crapping on cars, telling people to flock off. Maybe even make a few little ones. It's a perfect life. They are also completely disconnected. Some days, I also wonder what being disconnected would be like - no phone, no television or radio or internet, and definitely, no...Read On

Vampire Justice Part 30

Raven works to save Molly, while Carlo is free.

Raven looked up at Slade, "Can I help you with some information that may seal the case for you?" Molly looked at Raven wondering what her lawyer meant.

"Give me some time with my client, please?" "Okay, but be quick...Read On

Drowning

Every time I swallow my drink too fast, usually water, I am reminded of my near drowning. I hate thinking about it, for I don't wish to remember that time period or anything else associated with that. I fear it may drive me to madness.   I'd feel completely suffocated, unable to unentangle myself and take my emotional health to safety. I don't have any tools yet for when I cross that path.  ...Read On

Adios Irma

And stay out!!

Another Unedited Musing

It's unedited. Enjoy it, or whatever.

I’m not entirely sure I like you. Everything here is too bright and too dark.  It’s a fucking paradox and it doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t even make paradoxical sense. Like, why am I sitting here typing this?  My hands are betraying me. The wind is harsh, yet comforting. Why’m I even drunk? Am I sober?  Do I exist? Ugh, questions! Like, I could just write this out like some...Read On

Back to Eridani

We arrived at this place a long time ago, the place of the Universe to which the souls lost like ours arrive. And we have lived and shared almost everything here. Your children, who are my children, preferred to stay on Earth. This is an inhospitable place, I know, but it is our home. Helpless, how many nights I spent sitting by your bed when you were sick, out of time, not knowing how...Read On

Waiting for Irma

Nothing else to do

I'm sitting here in Southwest Florida, mere feet from the Gulf of Mexico. I live here. I've lived here for 30 years and have never been this scared. There is a storm coming. A huge storm.

Extraordinary wives

It is very difficult to be the wife of a dictator. In addition to all household duties, the husband must be instructed to direct the country well. It's a grueling task. And then there is the issue of the press. They are like vultures, always making offensive statements. On the other hand, and after embarking on charity works we are called hypocrites. And finally, when we spend our money,...Read On

Blue Lamp

Every second is a life time with every minute bringing you closer to God, with nothing seen but red lights which make your body seem to burn. With a minute in the sunshine seems to translate sometimes as a decade in the dark a world away as it takes part in a dream. Still, there are times when it all remains like those finest simple threads when you feel you can’t clear your head, and...Read On

Asylum Ch.2

Sometimes the scariest thing is a smile

The next morning Eric was escorted to his cell under strict watch after completing his three hour therapy session, with the same results as day one. Not a damn thing had changed in his behavior or his way of thinking. As they neared his cell he could smell an unusual stench to say the least. He couldn't quite describe it, but it made his nose curl in disgust. The guards stopped their march...Read On

Small great moments

They watch me during class. They are very brazen. I do as if it had nothing to do with me. They throw paper balls at me. I remember when I was in my mother's womb and could not be born. I was aware of my mother's desperation, and I also thought that I would stay inside her forever. And she was so beautiful on the inside as on the outside. I remember the cold winter mornings when my mother...Read On
