hi :) I write short stories and poetry about emotions, experiences, and interactions with the universe, others, and nature!
Most my stories are fictional, but some are my real life experiences as I remember them.
Tunnel of Ashes
A small girl sat cross legged next to a sickly figure in a mass of stained sheets. The girl held something in her pale bony fingers, a teddy bear. Her face was dark with wisps of stringy blonde hair as she stared down at the toy in her hands. She did not caress her teddy, or even regard it with a loving look in her eyes. This girl, this pale, bony girl was prying open her dear teddy’s chest exposing the soft fluff. Snap, snap. She tore teddy’s body apart thread by thread. With each snapped thread, the cold hard hatred within the small girl deepened and the grimace on her sour face tightened. A woman in a short white gown stepped into the doorway of her wretched room.
Stray and Cold
A tabby cat walks the bank of a frozen stream, her kittens swinging in her belly. The sky is bright and still, holding its breath until the return of spring. The trees watch her pad through the snow, their pointed peaks whispering to each other in the silent winter air.
