Short Story- SiblingsThe sun shone through the canopy of green leaves above them as they walked along the trail toward their destination. Susan stared ahead with a sort of grim determination as her little brother skipped along beside her. Suddenly, she couldn't take it anymore. Stopping abruptly she turned to the child, fury set on her features. He blanched when he saw her expression and stopped as well. "Do you think this is a game? Do you think this is funny?" she growled.More Like This
He trembled visibly as he looked down at his feet. "No, sister..."
"Mom and Dad are dead, and you're prancing around as though nothing happened! Next you'll be singing as well. You need to be serious, for once in your life! This is not a joke or a prank, Stephen. This is serious."
He seemed to shrink the more she spoke, and by the time she finished he was on the ground, crying. "I'm sorry, Susan..."
She sighed, and her scowl quickly disappeared. "No, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have yelled at you like that. You're just a child..." She hugge
His Love for HerAs they danced he noticed the light radiating from her aura, her very soul alive with her love for him. The comfort of her warmth filled him with slow desire. He could never be without this fiery repose. He leaned his head away slightly to look upon her beautiful features, her eyes shining like the light from her body, her lips parted and damp, her golden blond hair tumbling in gentle waves about her face, and he could not contain himself any longer.More Like This
Leaning toward her, he watched her deep, sea green eyes darken and slowly close. She relaxed in his arms, and he pressed his lips softly against hers.
As the kiss deepened he lost a part of himself, a part he'd never really known before. That place in his heart that had always belonged to her. She took it as her own, and she must have felt the change as well because she pulled away and met his gaze.
She stared, and her lips moved as though she wished to speak, but he stopped her. Reaching into the pocket of his pants, he pulled out the rin

I know you'll be there.
Warm as the quiet spring behind my house;
As refreshing as the gentle breeze coming down from the rocks above us.
You are my inspiration in a time of emptiness,
My happiness in times of despair.
You are my lover, my fighter, my one and only:
ItDo you know what waits for you;More Like This
In the dark, under your bed?
Do you know it's after you;
This thing inside your head?
It's coming for you, little girl;
Just you wait and see.
Its teeth are sharp and glistening;
It's mocking smile of glee.
It loves to torture, yes it does.
It feeds off fear and pain.
You see it in your dreams at night;
It's laughter far from sane.
Its skin is charcoal black, you know.
It's burned right to a crisp.
The very prospect reeks of Hell.
It gives your heart a twist.
Its eyes a misty white
It stares into your own.
It eats your sadness, hungering tears.
It loves when you're alone.
If you could see it's just not real
It wouldn't mean a thing.
You could write a poem about it;
Laughter it would bring.

Wings rippling in the wind,
This is where life begins.
Peace all consuming
Heart beating slow,
The bird gracefully swoops down
Among the trees.

But I heard lovely things about you.
You were gentle and kind
And purely defined
As a wonderful human being.
You saved her life
And for that you are timeless.
You will always be close
In our hearts.

Destruction all night,
Waking the neighbors
and searching for mice.
They're begging for wet food
And making a fuss.
Oh the children,
They love them,
Pulling they're fur out in tufts.
With anger and fear
They escape the small hands,
And watch safely from under
The couches and chairs,
Avoiding the inevitable,
For as long as they can.
Then, late that night
When all are in bed
They get their revenge
With their ruckus again.
