#about giving up

When you say it like that, you make it so believable. – And Even If Love Was Lost, Unknown Chapter – When you say it like that, you make it so believable, I say. I can still remember the scenery. The sky is blue, the sunlight passes through you, and the faint shadow of summer […]

#leave a message

I will call you back next week. K. I will be checking my mailbox more often. M. She’s a wolf. When the moon strikes at midnight and its blue light paints a shadow of pain, she turns into this hideous creature moving along the shops’ window panes: her claws leave red blood on the pavements […]

In A Coffee Shop

I drank a cup of coffee to outgrow my madness and sadness; Never know whence they come nor when they’ll leave. You ask me, What’s wrong with a little sadness? And I say, Honey, if the human condition means the sadness will never leave or let me be, I refuse to be a human or […]

A Rose for My Mother, Part III

One Sentence Story #1

You said you liked my hair, so I shaved it.

#pretend

You say when you are walking out the door that you will be back home when the tide hit the shore and honey, I don’t know if I should believe in you or if I should believe in the Schrodinger’s cat: fearing the tomorrow that you may or may not come home to where I […]
