A Horror StoryPart 1A Horror Story8 years ago in Horror More Like This
The lights flicker and go out. Darkness blooms across the ceiling the way blood blooms in water, spreads and fans and twirls, dark and wispy as fraying ribbon. There is a flare of red in this suck and swallow of darkness, this maw of black. It is an ember flash, the burn of tobacco crumbles in a pull of air. Neil longs for a smoke. He hasn't had one in so long.
As frail and fleeting as a swallow, Neil bobs low. He pulls in his neck and sharp chin and weaves toward the door across the room. His lungs burn and the empty bag of his stomach seems to tighten around them, squeeze hungrily around all of his withered organs. His parched muscles ache, his teeth sing with bright pain, and his bones creak noiselessly from disuse.
Despite this encompassing dark, Neil fears his captors. He is ducking and dodging the greedy, imaginary eyes that punch holes into the back of his head. He fears that they are waiting for him, watching him with smirks accented by cigarettes short from waiting, wai
Best Before EndWe walk in a world of plastic treesBest Before End10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Which can never be green
We walk amongst thistles
With safety edges
And in the volcano
We always see
The fire exit
Beware the midnight predators
Which have had their teeth removed
And sit in boxes by the bakery
Where poison smells like danger
And there is a sign to tell us
The sun is hot
This is the derived environment
The overdeveloped weird mass
It is the perfect world
For the proud and the dangerous
On the day that the signs fall
And the plastic façade decays
Here's to the small boys
Who reach out
And burn their fingers on the sun.

The Odeon of steel and glass that surrounds me has one of those distasteful smells, so repulsive, that it serves no other purpose than to remind you of other times in your young life you would do anything and everything despite your face to make the smell go away. Today's smell of the hour was a busying concoction of oil, heat, pavement, and dirt. Dingy cars chucking out carbon refuse did nothing to help the already soiled walls, and worse, the already soiled sensibilities of this cities inhabitants.
If ignorance was bliss, then this was the happiest place on earth. Seeing as how, as I walk to my car one block over, I was almost struck by no less then three cars in my short jaunt. The smells changed and I could have sworn that I was standing in the middle of my elementary school cafeteria. There was this smell of cheap meat, over cooked cheese, and Government Issue corn taco shells that is so unmistakable, I honestly believe that it is a required part of the building code for al

Like drawing a line;

Not losing patience
But seeing it through.
Agapé is something

To spread all around.
Agapé is something

We open upon an opened home: imagine an apartment building minus the façade, like a doll-house, its rooms exposed for the divine female from beyond to reach inside and pose its plastic inhabitants in humorous situations. We do not see the little girl playing with her little world, but we can picture her: blond, of course, and pony-tailed, immersed in her own miniature play. She breathes life into those static toys and settles their fates between luncheon and dinner.
She is not malevolent.

Sakuras eyes shot open in the dark room. She realized the images around her were blurred by the fact that her eyes were damp with tears. Her hand stroked across her eyes slowly making them clearer. When she looked around the room she finally remembered she was in Suna. The sound of Naruto shifting to her right confirmed that she was indeed on a mission in the sandy village. Sakura wondered if she had woken her teammate, but he grunted and mumbled something about ramen so she figured he was undisturbed.
She stood and made her way sleepily to the large windows of the tower her team was occupying. Placing her hand on the cool glass she tried to remember what had happened in her sleep to wake her. As she gazed over the sleeping desert one word came to her mind, 'Sasuke' Just his name made her emerald eyes sting, she slid them shut to keep any more tears from falling. 'I've lived withou

Hey, reader. I could write a book of different ways not to have to eat. I dont know what it is, it may be a control thing, like they say, the doctors, but I think, you just feel better when youre empty inside. Its like youre getting somewhere you have been waiting to go. Every time you eat it feels like a huge detour and you spend your time waiting to be empty again, so you can get back on the road. Speeding wildly until you have to detour again .

The lake was serene at the end of the afternoon. Twilight enveloped the world in a gray-blue shadow, and the first stars shimmered just above the tree's dark, lacy canopies. Sakura sat by the large oak tree, feeling the grass wet with dewdrops. The air was cooling down very fast, making the whole landscape shiver at every blow of the Autumn chilly breeze. The park's visitors laughed and spoke, but from her side Sakura could only make out a consistent buzz, only louder than the rustling of water and leaves.
The cool air also smelled of popcorn and candy cotton from the street sellers that made their business at the park. The atmosphere was that of a pure, yet controlled joy. Sakura liked to watch the life from far away, not quite belonging in the other people's world, neither in the darkening woods. She simply existed, not belonging anywhere, not being anything, just there. It made her forget the painful days. It healed her heart.

How long must we wait?
Waiting takes a lot of time from us.
We suffer all the time,
From loss to pain,
From fear to anger.
We all suffer in our own way,
Why must it be?
It has to be this way,
One day we will understand why.
We learn from our mistakes,
We change all the time,
Just as the winds shift changing with the seasons.
It's all part of life.

Oneshot: Demonic LoversThe Blood family was rarely called upon personally to take a hand in the affairs of humankind, despite their pledge to serve and protect humanity. Typically, they were relied upon as allies of the Batman, (and occasionally, the Justice League,) and were considered experts in all fields of the supernatural, primarily magic. But for the most part, the world left them alone, and they were content.Oneshot: Demonic Lovers4 years ago in Drama More Like This

The jarring ring of the phone interrupted their reading, drawing their attention. Jason made to rise from his chair, but Julius was already on his feet and crossed the room in two long-legged strides.
"I got it," he murmured, bringing the handset up to his ear and pressing the answer button. "Blood residence."

The Knife Falls
There is a park somewhere, with swings and a slide. It is much the same as every other park. It is only differentiated by the children who play there, the toddlers that are pushed there in prams, the teenagers who try their first cigarettes there. Night descends, and from one point of view something is lost in the park. From another point of view, something in the park takes its place where it has always belonged.
A boy of about twelve is playing in the park. He is shuffling through the long grass at the borders, looking for interesting things. Recently, he has found several golf balls, magazines that his parents would not approve of and a dead hedgehog. The hedgehog had been used as a football, or possibly a golf ball to replace the ones lost in the long grass. The sky is the colour of peach-and-barley, and the boy is thinking of going home when he finds something Special in the long grass. He is too scared to pick it up, despite the way it glitters at him and m
