Concerning a Disorderly Breath

Beyond the bars lie not freedom, but the pleasure of merciless nature, and certainly escape from a disjointed breath upon the ear.

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...

And because of this the unknown stays so shortly lived in it beautified death sheets, so shortly lived in the resides of the underbelly,...

After spending over a year at North Forsyth High School, I had come to the conclusion the school was ordinary. Students in this education facility act as typically as any other high school I have come into contact with, and so I made the archetypical mistake that most modern citizens made: There is nothing...

Jack of the Lantern

When the candles are lit on All Hallow’s Eve and sneering faces glow across the darkness, whose path do they light?  Whose darkness do they ignite?  Listen closely, and you’ll know the tale of Jack’s foolish deal with the Devil, and why his face lights our doorsteps the night when the spirits return.

Sticks and stones. Skulls and bones.  Of honor and bravery, no legends are told. Sneers and Cackles. Wails and shackles.  Of blood and madness, birth stories of old.             Across a midnight forest dashed a pair of panicked feet. Faster. FASTER! thought their bearer, heart po...

And so the dusk came fast that day, as it did on the days before. “The days are growing short.” She whispered into my ear. I nodded, mute, against her shoulder. We all noticed; no one had to say it. But whimpers and whispers floated around our small campground, almost drowned out by the silence....

The Game of the Devil

The man sat at the table, alone except for the board game in front of him. He sat there for a while, staring at the board as if the people milling around him did not matter. He wore a hooded cloak, which covered most of his face, and all black shirt and pants. He could have been Death himself. I walked...
