Time goes by, bringing some, and leaving far too many. Life creates to watch its creation flourish. Life is the novelist, and Time is the passionless publishing company, telling Life that what it has made is not enough and denying its work, a piece entitled, “Humanity.”  Life nurtures and cares...

Let it be known I was there from the beginning of that fool’s dash to the end.  Quite literally I was, for I stood as the first to meet him after thirty years of his imprisonment.  A nation had risen and fallen in that span, his time being of the former, yet when the new era began and those convicted...

Everything was perfect, But only for a moment. It couldn’t last Because no beautiful thing can.   It was a delicate thing, Fragile, as if made of glass, And it cracked Right under his fingertips.   All at once, Everything shattered. In the glass cascading...

One of the differences between me and the person I love is that she has conversations with the sun and I have conversations with the graveyard outside my neighborhood. It makes for interesting chitchat. I’m sitting beside her having a picnic on the tombstones, and she talks to the sun and God and I...

Waves came rolling in to break against the craggy shore.  He watched as they scurried back, only to gather themselves back up and ram against the rocks once more.  Straining his eyes, he looked as far as he could into the distance, but it was futile.  The sun was setting, and with it went any hope...

The day began with a bright sunshine upon her dreamy face. With one eye, Ines looked around only to illustrate her showed expression once she looked at her surroundings.

Even if God gave me the stars and told me to paint a masterpiece with my only medium being cosmic, and ordered me to paint the most beautiful thing he’s seen, An apology would be conjured in truthful excuse I would say he could surely not expect me to create the greatest thing when already,...

The walls weep with perspiration, invisible silhouettes crawling along the edges of your periphery like silent...

A hearth not of fire, but of the cold moon might well have been the wretched prisoner’s sole comfort.  Certainly, this window served the only constant of mention.  The stones in the walls simply infuriated him, for they never seemed to remain consistent in their rows for any length of time.  For...

The town rose dully before them, with little fanfare from anyone in the wagon.  They were tired, far too tired to cheer or work up a smile.  Reaching the town was just another milestone, scratched away from their to-do lists and left to collect dust. Jess shifted the baby in her arms and leaned...
