Rachel sighed as she brushed her dark brown hair. The last day of torment before her high school had its summer camp. She hoped they wouldn't dump any food on her today
The girls at school were some of the nastiest people she knew. They would tease her and beat her up, and then get away with it. And her foster parents didn't help at all. They didn't care.
She touched up her eyeliner, framing her blue eyes with care, and then threw her things into her backpack. Grabbing an extra pencil or two and shoving them into her bag, she hopped down her stairs.
As she walked out her creaky front door and into the blistering ho

Ursu and Kroga, mothers of the universe, were the first beings. They were here before there was a here, before there was anything. They were the beings that were charged with the task of creating the universe. Exactly the same, but inverse, the most beautiful ethereal creatures that would ever be, nothing in the universe would ever know the true extent of their power. Ursu was the being of light; her white dress would eventually become the stars and the concentrated darkness of her eyes would become black holes. Kroga was the being of darkness;
EDNOSShe's here again. I can't see her, I can't feel her, but I can hear her. She tells me to look at the other girls around me, to notice their tiny waists and their thighs that don't touch one another. I glance at one girl, and take a long hard stare at my legs. Hideous. Vulgar. Who would want to look at this? Who could possibly love this? She comes when I'm most vulnerable; when she knows that it wont be an easy task for me to clamber out of the hole she has dug for me. She laughs at me as I slowly torture myself, thinking that skinniness is the solution to my unstable state of mind. People watch as the transformation takes its toll.

The Serengeti woke up to the first words of three wild dog pups. The alpha female licked them; the male wild dog braced himself for a growl or a sign to leave but nothing, not even a growl. Finally the male wild dog spoke "the black river will be built, no one can stop them." The alpha female spoke "we will die, now Twiga. Go." Twiga left leaving his mate. So doom is in the air, we will be gone. The beasts will win and I bet I'll be raising the pups. He thought about it. He had a small time to think now it was time to choose, The pack or the pups.

I only wanted the best,
and when I wrote something less than that,
I'd get so frustrated that I'd
pull my hair out
and grind my teeth
and scream at the top of my lungs
Now, however, I just write
I'm not quite sure which is worse.

Gather around children
Let's have some fun!
It involves some bullets
And a gun.
Come and form a circle.
Plaster a smile on that face.
Fear begins to grow
As your little heart starts to race.
Oh now it's your turn.
Take the gun and put it to your head.
Close your eyes and pull the trigger,
You hear a loud crash as your body callapses, dead.
Screams echo around the circle,
As the room begins to smell.
This is just a pit stop.
Your next destination, hell.

she sits, and waits.
Her husband comes,
a bit too late.
He puts his coat
upon the rack.
He smiles to her,
but she's long since cracked.
She slowly rises,
to the kitchen
she somberly strays.
Her husband sits,
waits for his meal,
oblivious to her
and her wounds that can't heal.
She appears again,
a knife in her hand.
His eyebrows scrunch,
lost on her plans.
She begins to approach him,
quickly grows near.
He sees her intentions,
eyes wide with fear.
She smiles now,
with the fear in his eyes
that she now fully sees.
She raises the knife

The Nursing HomeThere's something about the way the nursing home smells. Some days the smell is worse than others. I'm not sure if it always smells this way, or if I happen to come by every week right as they are doing housekeeping. It's probably a mixture of the two; it always has an odd odor about it, which is amplified while dirty bedding is being taken from all of the rooms.The Nursing Home8 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

You'll know if you were in my shoes,
Asking me to draw cute dresses,
But what I'm saying is true.
I might draw everything,
But I get that feeling,
When I ignore everyone,
I feel it by a million.
Kids that I don't know,
Tell me to be fair,
But it's annoying though,
So, get out of my hair!
I only draw things that I like,
Only when I'm in the mood,
I'm not willing to fight,
Just for something I don't do.
So, no requests,
I don't take blame,
I don't need those lie tests,
So please, stay in your lane.

In this case however, it was not. Blizzards of whip pacing winds and face cutting shards of ice and snow ran through the air, freezing almost everything in its path. The bitter cold of the north would instantly chap your lips, and crack your skin. It seemed like even a minute out the warmth of a shelter would cause you to freeze, and be nothing but an empty corpse, lying in the snow.

I held the bag in one hand, sliding the key in the door with the other one. The door creaked as it opened and I quickly closed it so the outside's cold air wouldn't come in.
'Elisa? I'm home!'
Elisa was my adorable, 6 years old little sister. She was used to stay on her own since I often had to go get groceries and such and she never wanted to come. Besides I had no other solution, since the 'car crash' it was just her and me. It took so long for her to understand that 'daddy and mommy won't be coming back from the party'...
But she was with me now, safe and healthy. I heard her tiny footsteps in the staircase and smiled, dropping the bag

An image of a boy popped in his once more. It was a familiar blonde who was still smiling and laughing. For Leo, just remembering his face, was just pure torture.

When the demons find new victims to torture
When the ghosts and ghouls find new homes to haunt
When the vampires feast on hot, sticky blood
When the werewolves rip their enemies to shreds
When the witches brew deadly potions
When the zombies feed on warm human flesh
Tonight is the night,

I can't believe her. The doctor is out of the room for less than fifteen seconds and already she's sifting through her purse, looking for something that I confiscated nearly half a day ago while she was in surgery. She was finally awake and talking when the doctor came in about an hour ago to discuss what was found during the operation. If she didn't quit smoking, she'd be dying a lot sooner than she'd intended. The damage was already done, but if she wanted to live longer, it had to happen. It wasn't an invitation to sit-down and go on as before, but she took it that way

What I say;
Whether I am right or wrong.
When I give my notes about things around me,
Someone picks yup a whip to lash;
I may be right, I may be wrong,
But either way, am I an ASS?
I NEVER said I was an expert;
But I know how to observe and analyze.
When I leave my words on someone,
Why should you be so surprised?
But for you, What must I do?
You who are not among my minions?
It may be best for us both
That I claim

I remember when I was young,
You came to my bedroom and tucked me in,
Turned on a nightlight to help me sleep,
Played the snow globes sweet melody,
And say, " Night night."
And I replied, " Love you."
And you did the same, " Love you too."
I remember when I searched my closet,
And found a small snow globe,
That played the sweetest sound a little girl once knew.
Mickey in the glass,
Once faded into the past,
Has brought out that little girl once again.
I now live.
I live in memory of the light bathed onto my bed,
And before you left you kissed my head,
What was once forgotten,
