2 am magic

I don’t like wasting time. The fire is slowly creeping up, tar turning into orange and then into ash. I gave it a soft puff: to heat me up inside and to turn more orange into ash. Breathe in, breathe out. The smoke rises as it obscures my field of vision, blocking my already failing […]

Clara

I try to escape the confines of this mundane world. With every blink of my eye behind the glasses that it grew accustomed to, with every breath that my tar infested lungs take, I try to escape… even for just seconds, minutes. Hours? Even better. Living life is about escaping it: to look forward to […]

Her eyelids are still heavy from last night’s work; grades and names of […]

Everywhere you look there’s something going on; there was laughter, squeals, girly high pitched tone, and a lot more laughter. I didn’t know anyone; […]

The Red Matriarch

The floors creaked as the tall heels of her shoes collided with the wooden floors as she walked. She was a strong woman; tall in stature, about forty or fifty years of age, dominating features, a strong nose, luscious lips, slim yet curvy body and eyes that glare at the soul of those who behold them. She […]

Satisfied

“Are you satisfied with your care?” – Baymax (Big Hero 6) I looked up at the horizon, expecting someone to show up as I hold my Nintendo on my hands playing a game about monster hunting. The smell of freshly opened can of coffee filled the area around me, the air vents of the convenient […]
