Who are you

Redemption

In the grim back alleys of the city, Mean streets devoid of all signs of pity, Amid the piles of decaying refuse And slimy pools of darkly noxious ooze, Frequented only by the scuttling rats And noisome tribes of scabby feral cats; Here, slumped in doorways, human flotsam lies, Just filthy piles of rags crawling with flies. In such surroundings, one would not expect To find evidence of...Read On

I Wake Up And I Weep

My nightmares knocking at the door

I wake up in the night I wonder if you know? If you looked into my eyes Would my fear still show?   I can't look into your eyes They haunt my sleep I relive all the pleasure you took In making me feel cheap   The things you did I can never escape That you took pleasure in it I've known true hate   Disguised as love Even after all these years I wake up screaming Reliving...Read On

Invisible Ink

I have invisible ink tattooed on me. I will no longer keep silent; I now share my secret. I'm a survivor and those who know Without me, saying can tell perfectly.   I don't look for pity, only salvation. I'm no longer ashamed to admit this. Each time I tell someone else, I do not know, I become stronger, with every breath that I take.   I was lost and alone and I lived in my...Read On

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

Piece of String

Friendship is like a piece of string ...

Friendship is like a piece of string There's a beginning, middle, and end to it It starts with a smile, then loving hugs of sweet words Slowly drifting towards a deep sadness of goodbyes Tears that fall from betrayal, or something simple like silence Forcing you to sever all ties with the other If only for your own sanity and well-being To cut the string in two, clutching one piece as a...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

Dark Angel

Your soul is mine!

I am your dark angel And companion for tonight. Putting on my make up And my red lipstick on. My lacy garter stockings up And the sexiest dress on.  I am ready for the night to Entertain your heart's desire. Choose the kind of poison For your own entertainment.  Tell me your most secret desire, Your want and needs, I would gladly serve them to you In a platter on your sit. I am here to make...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

Fallen Angel

I have to make my stay worth my time...

Face raised up to heaven,  Anguish in her heart.  She has to content herself  Looking up to heaven above. For she is now a fallen angel Where any place will be hell. As she bows down her head,  Tears fall from her eyes.  She is fallen, her black wings  Are the proof for that.  As black as the raven crow  With tarnish dark soul.  She is a fallen angel now. She shakes her head as her  Wings...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 Subversion

The frivolous waste of the upper echelon is what fuelled the re-emergence, but it was not what sparked it. Seven wispy whispers fell from the mouths of the reformers, eroding the long-lasting stability of the fringe. Only the ebbing congeries remained to till the torn totem. If Friday began before the last, it would have none to witness the withering clouds of disdain beyond the slaughter....Read On

Route 66 Open Road

Spring cool breeze blowing, though, nose picking up sweet scents of flowers.  Looking down the Speedo at 65.  Road sign read Gas 20 miles Visit Irv's.  Talking to myself time to stretch my legs and get a Coke.  Never a rush Never late as you travel Route 66.    ...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

The Smiling Mask

This mask I wear, hides the truth of what lays beneath.

This smiling mask I wear Upon my face for you all to see Hides the anguish beneath And the swelling tears in my eyes When I look in the mirror It's not the one you see before you But the real face beneath And that truly scares me The harsh cold that surrounds me Of loneliness and that sense of fear Fills my mind with bad thoughts Of pain and suffering I've endured This path I find...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

For a Friend I'll Never Meet

Alan W. Jankowski, 1961-2017

You always did like surprise endings, A twist no one could see coming, And that last one of yours was a doozy. Days later, we're still reeling, Not from the shock, which dissipates, But from a grief that lingers. You probably never knew The regard people held you in, For it seemed to sneak up As we chatted and laughed About topics big and small. Our esteem grew Alongside your virtual...Read On

Everlasting Friendship

For a spiky haired kid who took a chance on a friend

I wish you could see what you mean to me Where we have gone and where we will be We were two souls connected in the night An email that started a friendship so right  Tears, laughter, and naughty things  Fun times, joys, and stories of ping's Hush Little One and Seduction by Slumber These things we write without encumber  Seeing through the chaos in my head Helping me see what needs to...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

Love Hurts

When you thought he is the one...

Kiera Knightley is singing Lost Stars in the background as she stuffs her mouth with a dozen of Krispy cream donuts till it chokes her while her eyes are pouring tears. "Why? Oh, why?" She said, garbled. Mouth still full of donuts. "What is wrong with me?" Coughing. Kiera still singing in the background. She grabs another, this time a bar of chocolate and stuffs the whole bar to her...Read On

Resurrection

He took a swig of the whiskey, hoping to dull the ache inside. The illusion that he moved on shattered, demolishing all pretenses he built over time. Like an avalanche, her memories flooded his mind and senses with a vengeance that could destroy his sanity. He felt her alive once again, remembering even the taste of her kisses and the throbbing of old wounds she caused. She was his...Read On

Smitten

I await your return ..

Like a foolish little schoolboy Smitten by his first love I find myself waiting each day In the hope, I'd hear from you But you're never there Except in my lonely head Strange voices that whisper to me Telling me bad things My heart feels emptiness On those long, lonely nights Without hearing from you I believe you have forgotten me Just to hear from you Brings a smile upon these lips...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XV

Claudia and the Prior make amends.

Entry XXI – My living quarters have become a little dusty since we left for Sigtuna, and it seems Sister Agnes has continued to make her rounds despite my absence. There are a few things that are not where I left them, but that does not bother me. When we gathered up our things and set off for Saint Ansgar Priory, the Prior was yet again quiet, and again he would not look at me. It...Read On
