The Agent of the Devil
Published on 09-08-2017 11:58 PM
Normally if I were to plan a murder I would not consider this night. Especially when the demonic auras are dancing wildly. Just staring at it caused my brain to melt like ice. Surely the date could be changed? Maybe tomorrow or next week? But, of course, it has to be today. The beauty of the night w  Read More...

Please, I beg you. Just leave me alone. That’s all I ask. The streets in this bustling city are crowded with motorbikes, a lot more than where I come from.

Cry
Published on 09-12-2017 10:03 PM
I cry easily these days. I shed tears while I watched a cat nursing its young, dabbing the tears away as they fall more when she licked her kitten with tender care. I cried seeing an old couple walk with their hands linked, holding each other for support.  Tears flowed freely down my cheeks w  Read More...

Then and back again
Published on 09-09-2017 09:34 PM
                I always knew we were a fairly odd family. First, there was me. Too tall. Too skinny. Too orange. My mum was lovely but not like other mums. There was something solid about her. Something rectangular, busy and unsentimental. Her fashion icon wa  Read More...

I would do anything to be with you, right now, so I could hold your hands, look at your face, listen to your voice. Just the thought of your laughter gave me the courage and I walked to the window. Jane, my dearest sister, I missed you so much.   Outside, I recognized a reporter from a news cha  Read More...
