A lover of all the impossibles if only they are in my head.
Dark Side Chapter Three
Birds are joyfully singing in the breezy chilly air. Insects such as crickets and flies are joining in with the melody. Joseph is surrounded by trees that have turned deep reds, oranges, and yellows. He notices that he is laying on the ground his head propped up on a rock. He hears a soft spring of water in the distance. There is laughter, but there is also distress that he cannot make out. Possibly other campers pulling jokes on others. Straight ahead there is a buck. He is quite handsome with his curved face, large eyes and body. There is something rather odd about the face. The animal looks as if it is smiling in an ornery manner. Joseph could hear a noise coming from it. It was in between a cough and wheezy laughter coming from its throat. The buck starts to walk in his direction. Joseph puts his hand out to touch it as it draws near. It walks right up to him, only to face the other direction. Warm, chunky brown liquid shoots from its butt. The liquid, which is raining down all over Joseph’s chest, smells like digested chili with a hint of jalapeno peppers. Joseph is horrified at what is going on. He tries to get the feces off of him but cannot. It just gets worse as it smears and relentlessly stays on his hands. At first he cannot call out. He can not scream. His mouth is open but no words will come. Joseph takes a deep breath and lets it out in an attempt to yell.
Dark Side: Chapter One
Heavy footsteps stomped up the stairs and loud laughter had awakened her. It was a familiar laugh, so she smiled. His laugh never bothered her because she loved Joseph so. She also heard other familiar voices and laughter of Ray, Cecil and Jacob. They had better keep it down once they get once they get inside, thought Sarah.
Perspective of the Imaginary
Neil would come home from school and I would be waiting for him. As soon as he saw me, his face lit up. A smile so big and bright it filled the room and also my heart. He said, "There you are! Right where I left you. Were you a good dog?" I always answered him, "No, I terrorized the cat and blamed him for eating all of the treats. I got into the dirt and tracked it all over the carpet. Then, right before you got home, I dug out all of the folded laundry and rolled in it. " Then Neil laughed and laughed. He laughed in that little kid laugh that was instantly infectious. I always told him about my day, just so I could hear it. It was what I lived for.
Fun Gone Awry
Dear Journal, As I write this, the walls in this cell feel like it's closing in on me. I am just not used to living in such tight quarters. A prisoner across from my jail cell is swaying side to side, saying things like she is going to rip my throat out with a spoon, then shit in its hole. Another one laughs. She is in the cell next to mine. I hear her whispering loud enough that only I can hear her. She says, "I will do much worse, you cunt. I will pull out each hair on your head so slowly, you will beg for death. Then I will turn you inside out from your pussy." I've had similar things said to me. My reputation has slowly grown over the last three months, each person only seeing what they want to see and not what I want them to hear. I know that I deserve to be here. I have thought about it since these doors shut the first day. It haunts my dreams each night and sets the mood for my days here. I see a counselor weekly to talk about the trauma. It's helping, but at the same time it's not. My counselor says that I should write it all down. She said that if I did that, I might be able to come to grips with it, maybe even forgive myself. So, here it goes...
The Phoenix and the Dragon
There was a phoenix burning brightly as she flew into the air. She was off in her head day dreaming. The phoenix should have been paying attention to where she was going, but she seldom did that. She thought that she was the only one that could fly as high as she, so it didn't matter to her. Since she was so deep in thought the phoenix didn't see the dragon that she was about to run into. She snapped to, but it was too late. The dragon and the phoenix collided!
Just Five Miles
Alexa begrudgingly got ready for the annual beginning of summer party that her parents hosted. She knew good and well what was going to happen. Half drunk people asking her life questions that she had an obligation to give answers to. Alexa didn’t know why she even felt a small urge to go. It’s not like she would really be missed if she didn’t show up. By the time she got there, her parents would be trashed beyond logic anyhow. They had always spent a metric fortune on alcohol to begin with. She guessed that it was better than staying home being pathetic.
