The Road (Wayfarer themed)

Nothing exists but the road beneath my feet. I thought I was in a town yesterday, thought I met people and that they were kind to me. I thought I spent the night, drank their wine and brought news from all parts of the countryside. But there’s no town that I can see, all I have is the memory. And me...

The Basement

Don’t go into the basement, whatever you do. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not haunted. I haven’t filled the freezer with corpses, nor have I converted it into some sort of twisted Nazi sex-dungeon, it’s a perfectly ordinary basement. The light doesn’t really work, it kind of flickers on and off, and the...

...I'm not always a hit at parties.

“Meanwhile,” I told him, “A child is dying.” It didn’t have any impact on what he was saying; I’d simply used the nonsequitor to shake things up, bored as I was with the conversation. It helped that I didn’t like him. It helped more that it happened to be true. With seven billion people on earth a c...

Grieving

After the funeral, once he was buried and gone, she, still in widow’s garb, trudged back up the hill, forsaking relations and the comfort they offered, to seal herself within the mansion the two of them once shared. It’s said that she’s up there still, in her mourning gown, gazing from her window do...

Starting Smoking

You’d tried everything, but nothing had worked. So you came to me. I sat you down, made you comfortable. Counted down from 100, each number causing you to fall into a deeper state of relaxation, each word causing you to sink deeper, trust deeper, fall deeper under the spell of the soft, soothing wor...

After the Adventure

…I’d switched the idol for a forgery. So by the time Heinrich’s crew found the temple and deactivated its booby-traps, I’d long since absconded with the treasure. That’s where my troubles began. I don’t know the first thing about fencing ancient artifacts, and I’d financed the expedition on money bo...

No Need to Worry (fear of the dark)

There’s nothing in my closet. Nothing under the bed. Nothing outside my window. In fact, there is no window. Everything outside of my most immediate frame of reference, that which extends beyond the nearest reach of my senses, has at some point vanished, and all that’s left is me, in my bed, covers ...

I Finally Get Around to Endorsing an Energy Drink

I am thirsty. Life is empty. Why? Why isn’t there an energy drink for me? Isn’t there? Bev-rage, an energy drink by Goths, for Goths, is finally available, assuming you can face the conformists at your local store. Available in three flavors, Black as Night Black Current, Black as the Raven’s Wing B...

You wrote us an essay. The spelling was atrocious, the grammar a mess, but you assured us it wouldn’t matter, if we’d only look deeper. Looking deeper was, in fact, your central thesis. That you weren’t myopically seeking attention at everyone else’s expense, but rather possessed immeasurable inner ...

The Danger of Mishearing (Communication Breakdown)

They sailed, in search of sirens. They’d heard tales, you see, of women of impeachable beauty beneath the waves, and couldn’t help but set out, to see them and hear their songs. They understood it was likely mere rumor, but to see such figures of myth with their own two eyes was a prospect too tempt...

Understanding (Communication Breakdown)

It isn’t that I don’t understand what you’re saying, I assure you. I’ve listened, intently, as you’ve explained your points, addressed your concerns and itemized every wrong, real or imagined, that you feel has been done you, and through it all I haven’t said a word, allowing you to make your positi...

There are only so many places in a rented space to hide a body. Apartments aren’t large, after all. Buying allows for a lot more room. Behind walls, an unfinished basement you can dig up, the yard, there are dozens of options for the discerning murderer looking to settle down. And with the housing m...

Happy Old Year (Holiday themed)

Times are tough all around. Not just here, everywhere. So when 2012 came to an end, and we realized we couldn’t afford a New Year, nobody was surprised. It wasn’t a big deal, at any rate. We’re celebrating 1991 instead. Yes, the futurist in me recoils, I’d looked forward to seeing what 2013 might ha...
