Seeking Calm In the Storm
“Daddy! Da-ddyyyy!” The cries tore through tension heavy air as he fought for patience. The bear must’ve come down from the mountain during the storm. It looked malnourished; skin sagging on bone swaying as it tried half-heartedly to get at his daughter through the debri over her. Drought had been bad this year prior to the storm. Rain had come little until it came howling with harsh winds that ripped apart everything at the seams. Tauran wanted to tear the animal away, but fought for patience. Afraid that any reckless action could cause him to lose his daughter to the starved, enraged animal. He’d already lost the t

The Vanishing Stars: Prologue
PROLOGUE The stars were going out. Each distant, shining ball of gas blinking slowly out of existence as though someone had stretched a hand upward to pluck them out of the black backdrop. Those who dwelt below, dancing and drinking, sought to forget it for a little; desiring a night of reprieve from the suffering their world already faced as a result of the voice above them. Away from the revelry that celebrated the union of the Mayor's eldest daughter to a merchant from the capital sat a lone figure. Hands curled into fists as a rest for the chin and contemplative eyes the shade of burnt copper shifted from the void's emptiness to the surr

The Vanishing Stars: Char. Names and Minor Notes
Muirenn Mulloy (Female Main Char. #1) — Muirenn is the overall focal character of the story. Her role is large within the setting especially in regards to the plot. She is the younger sister of Anara. When we first meet Muirenn she is simply tending to her garden. I have not thought much on her as a character yet, but as I write she comes together more solidly. I hope to have more of her to show you all later. Anara _____ nee Mulloy (Female Main Char. #2) — Anara is the older sister of Muirenn. When their parents died it was her responsibility to take over teaching her sister about the vital role she would play if the prophecy sh

“Were ye followed?” The voice was deep, vibrating with strength and energy, and at first Muirenn could’ve swore there was the growl of a wolf accompanying it in the dark. Flickering shadows appeared as the room brightened; the light a comfort to her shaken mind as she processed the question. After a moment her head gave a hasty shake. “Nay.

The lines of his face were angular and sharp where spotted through the scruffy black-and-silver hair along his jawline. The beard blended ea

There's A Hiccup(original draft)
There’s a hiccup shaking my foundation, cracking it in resonating spider patterns And leaving me distraught in their splintered wake — undoing all the stability to toss me into a sea of confusion. Words with the force of a quake tearing at my heart until there might only remain shreds, in the end — if it’s the end. Hope keeps my lips sewn tightly shut, when it comes to telling those close to me; Until only solitude allows sobs to split them apart and I fear what it’ll mean when no longer am I able to hide the tears — Outward evidence of the pain slowly eating me from the inside. More than them finding out,

“Neme, get down! You’ll ruin your new dress.” Whispered words, heavy with their lecturing tone, made the small girl look back over one shoulder to where her Mother waited; the movement worsening her already precarious hold on the railing as her sandaled feet wobbled a little on the bar beneath. Her Mother was always yelling about one misbehavior or another, and they were usually aimed in Neme’s direction — for good reason. Today was such a case, but the excitement of the day drowned everything else out. “I want to see them!” This was the only position where Neme could see the docking spot down belo

A Hundred Times: A Domestic Violence Poem A hundred times I screamed tortured, begging cries — “No, please. Stop, stop. . . Don’t.” that tore from my aching throat; clawed at your arms, pushed at your chest until my body went limp from exhaustion. And all you did was smirk as Your knuckles hit my ribs with a crack! Sending me reeling backward into the wall — again. Body vibrating with pain and eyes closed While hope finally died with my last Gasping sob. . .
