Trying to be cool.

Now despite being divorced from my first wife I stayed in contact with her and her daughters.I even offered to assist in keeping them off of each other's throats during the Summer vacation from school. So every week on one of my off days I would pick one of the two girls up and take them for a long motorcycle ride and lunch.  Both girls loved my Harley and loved to ride. I would show...Read On

Flower of Youth

The Flower of Youth stood as one.

The people sat in their cottages and spoke in whispers not to offend their King.  Not knowing when the Kings guards would come for their young men. The Flower of Youth to don armor and protect the King and his lands.  For war had lasted...Read On

A child named Ruth

A peak into the distant relationship of an immediate family

The countryside harnessed a strange calm breeze that swept the produce of nature in the settling burnt orange sunset. They had been driving for hours, craving water they no longer took for granted in this relentless heat. There was a growing sense of uneasiness in the city, and their presence alone had made the servants resentful. The thought of a social unrest panicked Ruth’s mother, who...Read On

The Seagull

The seagull crosses alone, from the sunrise to the sunset, the immense blue. It's a long journey back. She remembers when her fellow companion waved the wings beside her, opened her way through the air, and together they wove the threads of each day. Tears prevent her from stabilizing the flight. Air gusts make her stagger and barely can stay the course. For a moment think of dropping. But...Read On

Ugly Monsters, Chapter Four

I was flipping through the channels today and stopped on the old black and white show about a family of unusual and most unattractive family of monsters. I'm not sure if I can name it or not.   What I didn't know was that my feet would feel stuck in cement and that I was as scared as a jackrabbit. The main character, in all of his glorious ugliness, had reminded me of my own stepfather.  ...Read On

The Break Of Dawn

The dawn is coming ...

The moon is full tonight. Black clouds gathering above as the cold winds blowing outside. Chill runs through my body. Warm hand caressing my back, inviting me to curl up. Gathering me in his arms for a warm kiss on my head and hold me tight. His black wings enfold me.  "The dawn is coming; I have to leave soon." With regrets in his voice. Trying my best not to break down and cry, I wrap...Read On

Behind The Clouds

You shouldn't go out...

"Come with me, My Love." "Where to my lover in the mist?" "To a place where no one will bother us." The moon is full, covered by the black clouds. Darkness envelops the lovers as they walk hand in hand going to the center of the forest. Where they kissed amidst the chilling winds blowing, carrying the smell of roses.  When suddenly he howls in pain as if he is breaking, crushing bones...Read On
