A Little Whisper

It begins where all stories begin.With a thought.A hopeful idea.A little whisper after the moon rises. But as the clock ticksAnd the hours fly by,The whisper becomes a voice,So clear,So rich,So true. It tells me of things I want to hear.Things I’ve fantasized about.Things I’ve asked the moon for. It tells me of you. TheContinue reading “A Little Whisper”

Fear and Love

It was fear and love that sealedMy fate. The fear of dying again,Without the warm touch ofLips pressed to my cold skin.The fear of saying goodbye toThe ghosts in the shadows,That kept me company.The fear of another night,Trapped in my tomb,Hoping to see the moon,Once again. But it was love that resurrected me,For the finalContinue reading “Fear and Love”

Monster: A Short Story

With tears streaming down her face, she cried out, “You can’t keep me here.” He stopped playing with her hair, and began lightly tracing her lips, with his cold smooth fingers, “Oh, I can and will, little one.” “They’ll be looking for me,” she hissed. He leaned in close to her ear and whispered, “YesContinue reading “Monster: A Short Story”

Crush

From the moment I saw you, I knew. I do not know, what I knew, but I knew it. You were standing outside the doors of the library, on your phone, arguing with someone. You looked defeated and heartbroken. No matter what you were attempting to say to them, it was falling on deaf ears.Continue reading “Crush”

Class

She sat in front of me in History class. Chocolate colored hair, that hung down her back in waves. She would look back at me and smile at me, with those grape chapstick lips. When she would turn away from me, her hair would flip and swish in my face. It smelled of strawberries. SheContinue reading “Class”

I had been walking in the woods for what seemed like hours. I was incredibly, indelibly lost. Somehow my hiking group and I had gotten separated. The ideaContinue reading “Before Dawn”

Mask

There’s heartache in your eyes, my love. Peeking out from behind the mask, you so bravely wear. You hide your fears behind it. Smiling away the sadness. Laughing away the gloom. A caricature of who they want to to be. But it won’t always be like this, my love. The fear won’t always burn thisContinue reading “Mask”

The Last Goodbye

The look on her eyes was unmistakable. Betrayal and disappointment shaded her perfect features. Her voice cracked when she told me. Her throat tight, tears trying not to fall, she was strangely calm. I had hurt her for the last time, she said. I begged her to stay. Begged her not to leave me alone.Continue reading “The Last Goodbye”

The Woman

The night air here in New Orleans was sweltering. He’d remembered how humid it got in summer evenings but even he wasn’t prepared for this. Sweat rolled down the sides of his face as he sat perched on top of the low roof, waiting for the “target” to come out. The street was deserted atContinue reading “The Woman”

She: A Short Story

“Take my hand, little one,” she said to me. Her pearl white hand reached through the glom to pull me up. My skin tingled at the touch of hers. It was icy and hardened like stone. “Are you an Angel?” I called out to her, “Have you come to save me?” I tried to makeContinue reading “She: A Short Story”
