Earthfall (Prologue Part I)

The currency of Earthfall is despair.

  Prologue   When the Heavens Fell   Clear skies swirled above him; sunlight magnified the contentment reflected on his face; wispy clouds spun lazily in a sea of blue and the breeze carried the scents of summer across the land—blooming flowers, grass, trees, and the ever-present smell of animals that came with living so far away from the city. All those things created the peace...Read On

The Other Woman

My dear, I can't help wondering what I've done, You've become so cold and distant these days, And yet we always used to have such fun, Happy together in so many ways. You could have tried a bit harder honey; I asked you not to be late home last night, It was only our anniversary, And a simple gift would have been all right, Flowers, and perhaps a bottle of wine, And we could have ordered...Read On

Adventures Across the Starways - Chapter 22

Sive stuck her head out the open panel with stun gun in hand and shot Darla.

Smithe fell to the floor, suddenly going limp. Darla's breathing started to slow. Blinking in puzzelment, she stared at his still form. " After all that time wanting me, is that all there is?"  She thought to herself as she bent over the unconscious man. She frowned feeling cheated. “Hey we aren't finished,” she cried out as she shook him. Sive stuck her head out of the open panel, with a...Read On

Spring Song

There is a land of sweet delights A place by love defined, Where I have wandered oft by night, Exquisite joys to find. Its gentle hills, so soft and round, Are ripe for each caress, Their swelling curves, in beauty, crowned Await my lip’s impress. My hope is that the lightest kiss Reaction will inspire, And buds of red in search of bliss Break forth in shoots of fire. On hidden paths...Read On

Dear Mr. President

I cannot send this message to you. I was going to write to President Obama, and I forgot to. I wanted to write on my behalf for help. I cannot do that now. You like to grab women; you have no respect for them. We must protect all children from harm and give them all the tools we can. We must raise them with self-esteem and to use their voices. They won't speak up for themselves or others...Read On

Romance on the Railway

Come follow the tracks to my heart

Each night beneath the kindly moon’s soft radiance We make again that joyful connection of love Vulnerable in our emotional nakedness As we bare the most profound feelings of our hearts All too soon the hour of parting is upon us Catching us unaware in our communion The whistle of the passing train is the sad signal That we must reluctantly say goodnight, sweet dreams Come away with me on...Read On

Kiss the Bride

This was, after all, the night

Randall was propped against the Formica and vinyl-clad wet bar at the Alverton Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall. At the opposite side of the space, next to a long table of cookies, the polka band had launched into a zesty rendition of the Chicken Dance. Guests wove through a garden of dining tables toward the dance floor. Randall tipped his glass toward a purple-chiffoned bridesmaid...Read On

The Lollipop Gangster

It was the turn of the century before bubble gum filled lollipops had become the obsession of every Zambian child. Cola flavoured lollipops were all the rage back then. I would never quite go as far as saying I would have done anything for one, but I did do something quite shameful once. It was a hot summer morning in the city of Ndola. My mother had just sent me to the neighbour’s house...Read On

French Kiss

It's just a chance we live; we die in France. It could be anywhere that love may thrive But this is where we did our lover's dance. Our lustful joys will flourish, still, survive, A lover's touch caresses, filled with fun, And shares a fervor vibrant, so alive. In light still bright, we see our poem's done, And share a pledge that we will make tonight, True promise these two lovers...Read On

Smokes

In the dark when everything can happen in your imagination...

Alone again in this stone of a cell These four walls I called home Humidity is rising inside my room I am going out for a quick smoke My hiding place at the rooftop Where no one can see me in the dark The rain suddenly pouring hard Humid, no air, not even a breeze Still hot and yet it is raining hard Out of nowhere you appear to me In the dark as black as a raving crow Standing before...Read On

Burden Of Love's Death

Only memories and unrequited feelings remain after betrayal and shameful actions...

There's no reason nor any rhyme, How raptured my heart was with you. Impassioned kisses stopped all time, Even after our love withdrew. Your lies! My lies! Were everywhere! Of truth from many words did seep. My lies! Your lies! Cannot compare! For not a shred of truth did keep. Cursed memories thought divine, Timeless claims no longer remain. Haunted each day by loss of mine, And...Read On

Pastoral Visit

Brother Pitman pays a call

"You've been good today, so when we get home, you c'n have some ice cream." Aunt Charlotte holds his hand as they walk out of the white clapboarded church into the spring air. Up ahead, at the foot of the steps, Brother Pitman shakes a hand, then another, smiling at each face of a sister or brother. His preaching lasted forever today, with lots of rumbling breaths and flipping his bible...Read On

Scars to Tattoos

I no longer need to make marks on me A professional who tattoos has set me free When certain thoughts return and intrude back into my life for reasons unknown I try to quiet them appease, silence the poison but I am unable to stop or cope I wear a myriad of scars Self-inflicted not that long ago Shocking and saddening myself family and friends at a time when I was so very low The...Read On

Falling

A passionate addiction will always have risks...

Our love This connection Is a free fall Something We both want And need But Is it worth The risk Maybe Our chutes Have Already deployed The decision Has been made And We are floating Back down To earth Safely And no harm Will come to us Maybe But we wonder Will we land In an open field This once Escaping injury Deciding Never to Go up To soar again But we know Life Has No guarantees So Do...Read On

it is a story about love that takes an unexpected turn when evil is done in the name of ''LOVE''

  A LETTER TO AN IMPRISONED OBSESSOR.   I gave you my heart but not my mind even though I had always lost myself in your presence, you had me, you took me, you used me, but because I had always lost myself in your presence, you could not find the real me, and you lost me.

Torment

This strange feeling that I can't shake ...

This strange feeling inside It's so hard to explain Turmoil and torment Making my head spin Despite my compassion and honesty Trying hard to make others feel good about themselves I often retreat to my lonely pathetic world I live in With a sense of shame and tears swelling from my eyes Violently wanting to throw up To escape this sense of loneliness Seeking comfort and friendship from...Read On

To My Wife Preparing For Bed

My love, you looked so radiant tonight, Seated at your dresser combing your hair, Crowned with a bright golden halo of light From the lamp on the stand beside your chair. Though you demur, I only speak the truth When I declare, that ‘spite of time, your face Has never lost the rosy bloom of youth, And though the passing years have left their trace, Those marks of grace serve merely to...Read On

The Old Front Porch

They approached the front porch hesitantly, passing between two blooming Rose of Sharon bushes with red flowers. A new place, strange to him, with dust specks dancing in the rays of the sun that flickered through the trembling chinaberry leaves down onto the weather-beaten wooden flooring. Everything had been painted at one time. Now just flecks still clung desperately to the surface of...Read On

Advice To New Parents

A new baby is always so much fun A little bundle of joy to love There's nothing better than a little one This is a gift sent from up above Take photos every day And a video diary too They change in so many ways This will be nice to look through A video diary of all milestones It's an incredible gift In a flash, they'll be grown They'll thank you with a kiss Save a few of their things For...Read On

Utter Desolation

Lost and alone, abandoned to my fate, I wander in the barren wilderness Despised and forsaken, longing for death. The cold and bitter ashes of remorse Fill my mouth with gall, and blister my tongue, And utter self-loathing darkens my mind. Broken on the wheel of my arrogance, I bend my head to this desolation. No act of abject mortification Can cleanse my soul of my iniquities, And condemned...Read On

We Danced

"Don’t look back," she said, and both of us were victims of the night, and we were also it seemed to be each other’s form of physical kryptonite, and somehow, I knew we were bound to be together. She also said to keep your eyes on mine as we took the floor in the fading dark light of the setting sun. It felt like thunder and the sound of heavy guns in my chest when she looked at me, and in...Read On
