[Poetry] Bully

You thought you could kill me?
With your words as sharp as knives
And the venom dripping from your lies,
Well I’m sorry to disappoint,
But I won’t roll over and die.

[Flash Fiction] Jealousy

Icy stalactites hung from the ceiling of the devastated room like jagged teeth ready to devour. She stepped over the frozen debris—bricks crushed into frosty cubes, a lone chair wheel spinning aimlessly—and approached her ex-lover pinned to the wall. An icicle jutted out from each of his shoulders.

“Oh honey, I was always the stronger one.” She cupped air in her palms and turned her wrists outward. Her ex-lover screamed as the icicles twisted further into his flesh. Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Jealousy”

[Flash Fiction] Traitor’s Gate

With every step she took, frigid mist rolled over the sand, devouring the little grains’ warmth. The crackling of the sand freezing under her feet echoed through the air, announcing her presence.

“Knock knock, guess who?” She lilted in a sing-song voice, pausing at the broad stone gate guarding where he dwelled. Bending down to the gate’s bottom beam, she scratched into the stone with her fingernail, as sharp as an icicle and as hard as a diamond. Traitor’s Gate. An apt name for her traitor of an ex-lover.

[Poetry] Three Months

One Month
The sun is shining, but I can’t see it.
The dirt’s been scrubbed, but I still feel it.
The room is silent, but I still hear him.

Two Months
I remember the rocks shredding my skin, but he’s okay.
I remember the blood staining my legs, but he’s okay.
I remember my screams bouncing off him, but he’s okay. Continue reading “[Poetry] Three Months”

[Poetry] The Last One

A long time ago, I trusted them. I trusted them to take care of my creations, and to protect my saplings from harm. It never occurred to me that my creations would need protecting from them.

A long time ago, I gave them life. I gave them the cleanest air to breathe, and the freshest food. I gave them shelter from the elements and wood to burn for warmth. It never occurred to me that they would refuse to put out the fire.

A long time ago, I gave them a chance. Now, I know better. Now, I’m taking back my last surviving tree. Now, I’m taking back the life I gave.

[Poetry] Another Argument, Another Regret

Another argument, another fight,
Another regret buried deep inside.
I face you each day with a defiant stare,
Yet every night, I muffle my cries.
More harsh words meant only to hurt,
I purposely do what I know you hate.
I face you each day without a care in the world,
Yet every night, I return to my broken state.
One day, for sure, the pain will fade,
I promise you, I will treat you right,
But for now all I can do is whisper “I’m sorry”,
As you sleep on through the night.
