A Choice

I know what it means to stand alone, to be of the faceless and unknown, one of the unwanted and unloved, the condemned and shunned   To stand on the precipice of your own demise, with nothing to hold but your own hopeful lies, a disease or your ruin or your own mental maul, whatever it is that promises your fall   In a world that can be cold and cruel, you lie between the hammer...Read On

Within The Thoughts of Insanity

A devastating short story about a schizophrenic teenager going through high-school.

The rain seems so soft and friendly. Comforting; as if its entire meaning of existence is to engulf you like a child in a blanket. Simply reassuring you that everything will be alright. This road is beaten and brittle. The cracks quietly outline the years of torture that this road has witnessed. The withered leaves yawn as they try to cover up my mistakes, tired of knowing I won't listen....Read On

Each birthday that reaches my son, I hope that I have been, and still can be, the father to him that I...Read On
