Bitter sweet symphony

Bitter Sweet Symphony “Daddy, where’s mummy”?? My 6 year old son looks up at me from his bowl of kellogs corn flakes I had just served him, with milk dripping from his lower lips and worry in his eyes. “Daddy, where’s mummy”?? He asked again I couldn’t look him in the eyes, what would I say?? How will I explain this to him?? Where did my loving wife go?? I had asked myself that question for almost a year now, where did my loving wife go?? Funto was her name, I called her my Elf, not because she had pointy ears, no, I called her elf because she always managed to stay beautiful, look the same way all through the time I knew her. Where did my elf go?? She was the girl your parents prayed for you to find, the perfect wife. Loving, caring and ooh boy could she... [Read More]

Ophelia- someone like you

Raven Black

02 Jan, 2016 01:52 PM

See the mirror and it'll reflect the truth of who you are. It's not your reflection of you, but a glimpse of dark reality that exists on the other side; reflection is the truth and you are not. Dark Ink greyish black clouds engulf the whole light out of the sky. Drizzle wets the grass and rough stones that stand erect at the headside of graves. Figures in black clothes mourn in the miasma of rain. A cackle of thunder followed by the flashing light on the horizon silences the dead souls; highlighting the face among many who never sheds a tear over the loss of her sister. She is standing starring at her reflection in dimmed glowing light of fire in hearth. But despite the burning fire, the room is still cold as if someone's chilly sighs freezes it to death. She isn't starring at herself but it is... [Read More]

My Name Is John...

Just before this story, I’d like to tell you that at this time I was 13, and I'm 14 now. This is back in April 2015. It all started when my parents had to leave for about two weeks. They were going to be in Las Vegas. I was 13 at the time so they didn't really feel comfortable with leaving me home for so long. And my brother had just moved out at that time so it wasn't really much of an option to leave me. They came up with a conclusion, leaving me with my friend Cole, that had just purchased a new house in Sandy, Utah. I was going to stay with him for as long as they were away and I would be able to get to school from his mom. And just know at the time when I was friends with Cole, we were really... [Read More]

The Countdown

ThePerfectlyImperfect

60..59..58..57..56..It's pointless. Why should all these people live? These teenagers. Of course, I'm one too, yet I feel as though I'm much more than them. Their lives mean nothing. All they do is have sex, do drugs, drink, bully. What use are they? What use am I? It's time for someone to do something about these awful people.To get rid of them. There are others like me. Others who think they should all die. They're nothing. They should all burn in hell for their sins. If we come together, we can rid the world of them all. Everyone will see what good we've done. They'll thank us. We'll be remembered. 40..39..38..37..36..It's so exciting. Here we all are, in the gym together. And once again, our school team is losing. 8 to 0. All they do is dribble the ball and shoot. So pointless. What good will that do in this... [Read More]

Forgetful

Ryan

27 Aug, 2015 06:27 AM

I sat on to my bed, starring up at the cracked, old, concrete ceiling and drifted in thought. I was once again trying to find a reason behind what I do, but came to the same conclusion every time. There was no reason, I just loved it. Every little second was a free-fall, so much adrenaline but no outlet, other than screaming or laughing. The best part was the last few seconds, as strange as that sounds the exact moment when you see the light and life leave there dull eyes, there last pitiful breath. I’m addicted to killing, or rather the screams and blood that comes along with it. I smiled, taking a break from my thoughts, and reached for the plastic cup sitting on the floor with shaking hands. Downing the contents of the cup, I cursed, and decided to get some more tonight. As I walked down... [Read More]

The Unforgiving Magic (part one)

Jack Sorenson

01 Aug, 2015 02:52 PM

Synopsis: Olivia Sunshine and prairie grass–well in the foreground over grown thick and untamed. For the background, perhaps a thousand miles away or more than half a decade removed in time. In the blue sky a meadow lark’s love song, and in the grass the boom of the prairie chicken’s wings are the only sounds that break the primeval silence, excepting the lisping of the wind which dimples the broad acres of tall grass–thousand upon thousand of acres–that stretch eastward for miles toward an old farm. To the left the prairie grass rises upon a low hill, belted with limestone and finally merges into the edge of the far horizon. To the southward on the canvas the prairie grass is broken by the heavy green foliage above a sluggish stream that writhes and twists and turns through the prairie strong winds, which rises above the stream and meets another limestone...

the making of legends

Jack Sorenson

12 Jul, 2015 05:20 PM

This happens quite frequently in the making of legends. In small towns after all, who really believes that some old man’s disgruntle tales of his family home being invaded by a werewolf fifty years ago on a Halloweens night would ever come true. By a young boy’s dead father last words before he died. Jack and his Mother Deborah accounts to there his son, now being an old man himself many many years later. The belief was real in fact, the boy’s father believed it so much that there was a silver barrel shotgun with a homemade large thick wooden stock to hold its adamant size and weight by the front door remembering when he was a young boy. In that and a water stained cardboard box of silver bullets was all that remained to his father’s true belief carries with the shotgun as the shells rattled in his pocket... [Read More]

My letter to the world

Dillon (Blood Tears)

09 Jun, 2015 03:24 AM

When you are told one thing for so long you believe it. I know I look good, I know I'm not evil, I know I'm not an addict, I know I'm not a mistake. But I am. You can't grow a rose in a burning pit of tar, no matter what people say. It may look like a rose but inside, inside its a rotting weed. Tortured by its thoughts and feelings. Broken down by everything and everyone around it until it decides to break its self. Its sorry for everything its done to you, it doesn't know what it did, what it said but its sorry. It cries itself to sleep because it doesn't understand why it doesn't belong. It gets high and drunk to finally love itself, to finally feel some peace. Only to be screamed at, tossed around and disgarded like trash because it can't get love... [Read More]

The Thing that Came From the Moon.

Pride Ed

18 Jun, 2015 09:13 PM

“I hate the moon — I am afraid of it — for when it shines on certain scenes familiar and loved it sometimes makes them unfamiliar and hideous.” — H.P. Lovecraft, What The Moon Brings. Studying plant-life had long since taken hold of my attention, so I resolved to earn a degree in botany. Although I was still considered an amateur, I had my fair share of academic accomplishments; my manuscript on the characteristics of non-native plants had been the object of scholarly inquiry for months after a scientific journal had agreed to print my work. I sought more knowledge, — and more specimens as my expertise and credentials grew. Eventually, my endeavors lead me to a secluded part of land located in the French countryside. My colleagues had boasted that many rare specimens flourished in this part of the world, many undiscovered or scarcely examined. The cottage I stayed... [Read More]

No help

Alice was panting frantically. Her right leg was bleeding and something was dug deep in her shoulder, she started realizing that as she moved, she went no where. Then she saw that her left hand was caught inside a net. She wildly pulled her hand free and slowly stood up, clutching her right leg. "Zane.....Zane! Zane! Answer me!Where are you! Zane, Please! ZANE!" She moved away from the crash and sat on the dry, cold grass. Still shocked burying her hands in her face, sobbing. "don't leave me" It was the year 0. After the destruction of the world when the virus broke out. It practically made everyone turn into a Dracula combined with zombies. Well, whatever they were, they are now called 'the viculas'. The people who are still living in this world have lived long enough to know their weaknesses. They have missing bones in their neck to... [Read More]
