Genital herpes is no laughing matter. There is no cure for genital herpes. It is a lifelong disease. The band Limp Bizkit once contracted genital herpes, none survived. I'm here to raise awareness about genital herpes in an attempt to minimise any casualties within this community. Even though many people actually believe genital herpes to be nothing but an urban myth, I can assure you – It's real, it's alive, it's out there – and it's coming to get you.
Did you know? - You can get genital herpes on your face? Yes, it is true – experts have concluded that genital herpes can migrate, like indigenous nomads – except they don't carry around spears – instead, genital herpes are known to shoot out something known as "herpal fluid" straight from a smal

Walking up the stairs,
Tying some string in a knot,
Not knowing that in my skirt
My knickers had been caught.
I wondered why she had laughed,
Why he had stopped to stare,
But my mind was on other things
And so I did not care.
I stopped at my locker door
And opened it wide
Looking for a notebook,
A boy of a young age
Had been walking past,
He had turned to stare at me,
Hit the wall and landed on his ass.
Looking at him in awe,
I held out my hand to help
But he scurried away on all fours
With a very surprising yelp.
I stood where I was before
Wondering what I'd done
When my friend walked up and said
"Psst, I can see your bum."
I stared at her in shock
As she giggled like a child.
"Well, not your bum really
But it's your knickers you cannot hide."
I threw my hands to my rear
And ran to the loo,
Into the stall, shutting the door,
Trying to fix, to undo.
I managed to fix it all
But was still red with shame.
I knew that from here on out
The whole school would

I dream of you
When you're quiet.
You creep and slide next to me
Naked, perfect, strange.
My end of the rainbow
Is empty as you fade
Over the miles,
A ghost of hearts' illusion.
Your hair was just in
My hand a moment ago-
I felt you close, silk
Against me, cool and soft.
I awake, as you roll
Away from me, shining
That glow alone,
Breaking me in two.
I hear your tune,
The music of your
Breath sighing my name,
Drawing my spirit to you.
I have to taste you,
Touch the Divine...
Drag the stars in your eyes down to me
And make them my own.

I thought of my grandmother the second I walked through the unlocked screen door. She once told me, in that head-wagging way of hers, that unexplainably nice smells were due to the presence of angels. Not that I couldnt explain why my senses reeled in delight the baker had been at work for hours before I arrived, and the products of his labor greeted my nose before I saw them.
I felt faintly ridiculous, as usual. Here I was trekking around this dinky town with its poor lighting, poor paving, and street signs that seemed to vanish just as I needed them most. Bad enough that it was 4 AM, that uncomfortable time when my body cannot decide whether the day is just beginning or over already; worse still that my subject of inquiry fairies would get me laughed out of any reasonable persons presence in two minutes flat.

There is a problem here. I have to make it all last. I have to stretch it out and live with alternating emotions of well-being and deep self hatred. At this moment, you are witnessing the trough. At this moment, you are seeing me at my darkest hour. I refuse to look in the mirror. I cannot cope with the idea of interacting with others.
They are telling me that I no longer make a difference in this world. They tell me that the people closest to me have moved on to better things. They whisper words of dispair in my ear and assure me that I will no longer feel warmth again. Logically, I know that I am being faced with lies. Emotionally, I curl myself up in the deception like a blanket. The demons are fighting for my

He irritates her sometimes, to the brink of screaming.
There are days when the air between them is icy cold.
She has called him names that she later regretted.
He, in turn, has told her things that have brought her to tears.
But when she looks at him she sees a warmth in his eyes,
A gentleness that's only there when he looks at her.
She sees the man who once bought her ice cream
At two in the morning when she could not sleep.
She irritates him sometimes, to the brink of screaming.
There are days when they do not talk, for hours on end.
He has ignored her when she needed to be held by him.
She has criticized him when he needed to be praised.
But when he looks at her, he sees the one who held him
The night he found out his father had lost to cancer.
He sees the woman who calls him everyday at work
And asks how his day is, and does he miss her yet?
He is the strong arms around her, fiercely protective.
She is the quiet presence he can always lean on.
When he holds her in the dark, she whi

Train of Thought Some of the lights flicker off and on occasionally, reaching the end of their useful life. The train's wheels rattle and grind along the tracks, making noises that sound particularly unhealthy, echoing in the tunnel. The tunnel walls flash past in all their uninspiring glory. On the train people sit in silence, some reading books or newspapers, some listening to music. One is puzzling over '29 across' in the latest crossword. They oscillate slowly with the motion of the train but otherwise remain almost completely still.Train of Thought8 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Its the end of spring, heading brightly towards the beginning of summer. The sun is streaming through my window at the start of each new morning, and the wisteria vine in bloom outside my window smells beautiful, occasionally sending drifts of bright bluish-purple petals floating past like so much warm-weather snow.
And here I am, stuck inside, sitting on the floor with my back against my chest of draws, staring at page after page of notes, knowing that Ill never learn it all in time. I occasionally turn and gaze longingly out of the open window, but at the moment the sun is just an inconvenience. It means I have to put on sun cream when I go to see my friends. It means I have heat rash making my elbows itchy. It means Im sweaty and uncomfortable if I have to go anywhere, and the humidity makes it more difficult to sleep.

PumpkinPumpkin. I have been called that name for years. I hate it. I hate my mother for calling me that, for instilling in my naïve young mind the idea that I was actually a pumpkin. Clearly, Im not. I dont grow among wide, green leaves, nor did I spend my childhood whispering to ants and cutworms as they crawled over me. No eager children turned me over, checking for rotted spots or discoloration. I do not have rotted spots. I hate that my mother could imply that.Pumpkin7 years ago in Horror More Like This
Pumpkin. I am not orange. Not naturally, I mean. I once used that spray-on tanning solution when I was sixteen in an effort to convince myself that it was not February and I didnt have fish-belly pale legs, thus turning myself into a skinny, five and a half foot tall carrot-colored young woman. Maybe that makes me closer to a carrot, but not a pumpkin. Im not built like a pumpkin. I hate the idea that my mother could imply that I was. Thanks, Mum. Thats good for my self-esteem.

lined with pretty white lace,
that burned the inside of her parents' nostrils.
She was born with a hole in her heart,
that the doctor's never noticed,
and no one bothered to fill.
She met Death on the playground,
when kindergarten was bending her bones.
Enticed by the glinting of his scythe,
as it preyed on a malformed baby rabbit.
She made a pinky promise with him,
swearing that she'd never forget his face.
He came and went,
swayed by corpse breaths
and east-coast winds,
but always leaving her alone.
He showed her how to hurt,
in the worst kind of way.
And each time,
he paid her a visit,
he'd take someone back with him.
She often asked where he would go,
when his curled claws would drag her mother,
and every love she'd ever fallen for,
into the darkness that he crawled from.
All he'd say,
was that she'd find them again someday,
and that he would take her to them, personally.
But as February,

Living with the Dead We got used to the zombies. They appeared six or seven years ago. There was a huge furore at the time, of course... people fighting them in the street. But you can't go on like that forever, and there didn't seem to be any way of stopping them from rising, so it was just a case of living with it. They moved so slowly anyway that as long as you had a fairly brisk walk they wouldn't be able to catch you. They just wander along. Unless you're caught in a confined space with a bunch of them all coming at you, you can get on fine with them. Just make sure you lock up tight when you go to bed, and you're safe as houses.Living with the Dead8 years ago in Horror More Like This

But no matter how distant, no matter how faint, I can still feel it, deep in my chest, like a warm touch, telling me that change is on the winds. Autumn is coming. Its strange really. Autumn is that special sort of season that brings about change summer into winter that short transitional period where you can feel death in the air, wandering around, turning the leaves from green to a myriad shade of red and brown. Autumn is the season that precedes death, the death of the winter cold, that last glimpse of warmth before the end. Its funny, because if I only paid more attention to how the autumn represents the prelude to death, I wouldve done things much differently.

Her hands stopped in motion as she heard rubber pop on gravel as it slid to a stop outside and instinctively she knew. She listened as the car door creaked open and heard the footsteps as they climbed each stair one at a time, just like before, the wood creaking slightly, heels tapping lightly to come to a halt just outside her door. Her throat tightened slightly and she exhaled not realizing she had been holding her breath all along.
