A Million Blazing Colors

I searched for inspiration and I came back with nothing. The rain, and everything around me felt suffocating and I escaped into the gloom and the drizzle outside looking for a spark—a tiny glow to set me on my way. The beach was cold—the water grey and angry. I brought a blanket and laid it... Continue Reading →

We Return Lost Time

I responded to an interesting ad today. I saw it in the paper, right there next to all of the other usual things being advertised. It was only four words. "We return lost time." Underneath this there was contact information. I read it again. What did that mean? Unable to resist, I got my things and went to the address advertised.

The Anchor of Your Thoughts

We sat next to each other in the sand overlooking the water, both of us thinking, neither of us talking much. We had been this way for what seemed like hours. It was the kind of day I had really needed, the kind where you can put everything aside for a little while. Where the... Continue Reading →

The Girl with No Future

I sat alone, in the dark. Through the window I could see the glow of a streetlight, but it was weak, illuminating very little inside the room. Outside the traffic was gone, nothing but the sound of a drizzling rain to break the silence...nature awakening to retake the Earth while humanity slept. I looked around... Continue Reading →

Write it All Away

Will  you be my escape...I've been calling for you. Where will you take me? Wherever it is, I want to go with you. To that place that exists in memories, in dreams. In imagination. There are friends there, people that I knew, people I know, people I will know. They live in a world in... Continue Reading →

The Maze I Built

I watched them from far away, until the sun sank in the sky and finally slipped out of sight. At first glance there didn't seem to be very much that was interesting about them. The scene before me wasn't anything spectacular. No drama, no intense discussions. No fighting or situations in urgent need of solving.... Continue Reading →

The Wheel of Answers

It had been a soul-crushing sort of day. The type of day that makes you question why you continue pursuing your dreams...and not only question but totally reject even the thought of getting back up and trying again. The sky opened up as I was walking home and I entered my house drenched. Too tired... Continue Reading →

Conversations with Fear

I met her at the end of a long winding road. It had not been an easy trip. Thoughts ran through my mind as I traveled down the path. There was anger, sadness and regret. Dozens of things I wanted to say. Questions, accusations...I wanted to yell at her. To ask her why. Why she... Continue Reading →

Bring Me Your Words

I sat on the ground beside her, watching the sun set over the fields. The light here was always golden, a place perpetually bathed in the last sunshine of the day. For hours we  sat, without speaking. When I'd arrived I'd greeted her, quietly. And she'd smiled and nodded. She had seemed happy to see... Continue Reading →

Tea and the Tiny Voice

It was close to 3 in the morning when I finally left the computer and headed downstairs. I still felt awake, even though I knew that I should go to sleep soon. Thinking that some tea might help me fall asleep, I headed into the kitchen. I opened the door to enter and then immediately... Continue Reading →
