New Year, New You

Every year, he goes through this. Resolutions are nearly impossible to stick to, but he intends to do it this time. The wall is covered with trophies; remnants of the pattern he intends to leave behind. With the gentle hand of a museum curator, he wipes dust from one of them. "It's time for a c...

I guess there's no accounting for perspective, eh?


To the Up, everything is down
To the Down, it's all up
And to the Near
It's all lost where the lines converge

True enough.

'Season's Greetings' From Ferguson, MO.

Tear gas fills the air, and protesters fill the streets. They cry out for justice, while victimizing their neighbors, and breaking the law. Candlelight vigils devolve into full-scale riots, as those who've lost a loved one stoke the flames with vitriol. Talking heads spew rhetoric, and personal agen...

Running Late

"Where the hell are they?" he bellowed, as he unceremoniously cleared his desk of papers, and garbage. "I know I left them in here!" Doubting himself, he left his office, stormed through the living room, and began tossing the pillows, and cushions. "Damn it to hell!" Th...

Trick Or Treat

Peering out my window, I can see the parade of little ghouls, and ghosts making their way through the neighborhood. They collect their treats, and watch their bags swell with each visited house. I clutch the bowl to my chest; waiting for my turn to bring my brand of Halloween into their tiny lives. ...

Paying The Rent

The sickly sweet aroma filled his nostrils, as he seared the meat on the stove. Work’s been slow, he thought, There’s not much else I could’ve done, right? His ears delightfully devoured the sizzling sounds emanating from the pan. Not many people dine at expensive restaurants in a recession, do they...

'Two Shakes' Is More Than Enough

Alan awoke in the middle of the night, feeling his bladder's oppressive weight. Each step, a test of his bodily control; the impact of foot-to-floor threatened to 'burst the dam'. After an 'eternity', he stood dazedly before the toilet. With the ease of a practiced professional, Alan removed his 'Li...

Mars 2064 A.D.

"Sir! We picked up a distress signal from space." "Can you get the signal's origin, Lieutenant?" The lieutenant taps some keys. "It's coming from Mars, sir." "Mars?!" "Yes, Sir. It's coming from a U.S. colony on Mars." "You're obviously reading ...

The Shark-Man

The light of the moon shone on its glistening skin as it cornered its prey. Eyes as black as pitch peered at the young man hungrily. He tried to call for help, but his voice caught in his throat. It opened its hideous mouth, revealing several rows of serrated teeth. Backing away, the man felt the co...

The Blank Screen

I'm sitting at my desk, as I always do when writing, staring at the blank screen before me. It's not 'writer's block' that's got me like this, that would be much simpler to handle. An hour's passed since my glass ran empty. When I got up to refill my drink, a pale, emaciated little boy, dressed in a...

Don't Look Under The Bed

He undressed and got himself ready for bed. It had been a long, exhausting day. A brief sensation of being watched occurred to him as he shut off the light. Making his way around the bed by memory, he cursed as his shin struck the frame. As he drew back the covers, a massive, clawed hand lunged from...

Fatherly Instinct

[The crying commences] He applies the pacifier. [Crying continues] He changes the diaper. [Crying continues] Inspiration! He administers the bottle. [Crying continues] His frustration mounts as he grabs toy after toy after toy; all to no avail. [Crying worsens] "What the Hell do you want?!"...

Re: A Young Knight's Final Test

I'm probably displaying ignorance here, but what, or who, is 'Twill'? Cloth armor vendor trash (no armor benefit) in world of Warcraft. Ah! I can grasp the WoW application. I did know twill was a fabric, but the 'ftw' threw me off the scent. *NOTE* I do know that ftw means 'for the win', hence my c...

A Young Knight's Final Test

His sword thumped lightly against his leg as he moved further into the dragon's lair. " This overgrown lizard won't know what hit it " he thought confidently as the air grew thick and warm. He'd fantasized about this moment; it was his destiny, and he knew it would make him famous. So what...

While this story is a little dark for me, we got room for all types around here. Pull up a chair and sit for a spell.

Thank you very much for the welcome! It's good to be able to bring a little darkness into the otherwise sunny lives of others!
