    The boy sat, doubled over in pain,

    on his hands and knees, clutching at the forest floor as if he were holding onto a lifeline. Pools of silver moonlight surrounded him, gathering on the ground like blood. Sweat slicked his face, plastering his longish chestnut-colored hair to his forehead and cheeks. He gasped...

    Hello Darkness My Old Friend

    It wasn’t fear so much as feeling unsettled. It was as if things were just slight out of kilter; warped, even. He lay there, staring at nothing, as the darkness was complete. The thin nylon surrounding him could have been inches or miles from his face, and it was only by...

    It was in the middle of the night

    when they came. Their eyes like fire, their horses like shadows, they burned her city. They killed her family. They left her in a blackened world of ash and cinders. Her world had fallen apart. But still, she could dream.

    Unlike most men he always showed his love

    through his actions. His actions were sometimes slow, fast, soft or hard punches to the head. Kicks into the stomach he would let me know he loved me and it was all my fault. This excessive love, hatred, control and fear... Something we both felt. He'd hit, we'd make love. I...

    I love writing and reading short stories.

    They are fun and it's interesting to see what people come up with. I even try to write some but I'm way too embarrassed to show anyone because I think they're really bad. Anyone else like this?
