Morning Memories

Mornings have become my favorite time as my thoughts and dreams dwell on memories we create. The way my fingertips tingle as they caress your bearded lips, idly stroking hair covered cheeks.

Listening

I am listening for that pin to drop and a moment of complete silence before everyone starts talking at once. I am listening for someone to interject common sense into the mix of babble. I’m listening for that perfect note sung in a choir that resonates to my core. I am listening for that dinner…

Dreams of Peace

May

As the gentle rays of the sun dance around you may their warmth remind you of me. Whereas my dreams of you smolder deep waiting to become a blaze burning wild and free. As the mist of a soft summer rain clings to your skin each dewdrop will murmur my name As my soul was…

You

Roulette

You look around the room at the hooded twelve. They stand there as the silent witness and most likely one of them will finish you off if you can’t manage to pull that trigger. Again, you wish it could be something kinder like pills that make you go to sleep and don’t let you wake…

Dragons

The scaly fire-breathing lizards are everywhere by living in my fertile imagination.

Prey

Here is another offering for the deities of storytelling.  It was written from a prompt I receive a couple years ago.   “Make your Protagonist a monster and have him/her meet a bigger monster.” Writing this story was kind of fun.
