As a rule of thumb, I don't believe in love at first sight. It'd be such a pain, don't you think? To have that moment of horrifying clarity when you see her, alone in a downpour, brown hair and blue eyes being the only colors that... (more »)

It was a warm day for October, but I was oblivious to the unseasonably-good weather.  Birds chirped happily as our grey Lexus pulled out of the driveway and headed up the coast toward the funeral. I pulled at my grey tie, and looked down at... (more »)

The elaborate swirling designs on the back of the cards are blue. She just bought this new deck yesterday, so they are still glossy and pristine, a bit slippery to the touch. Running her fingers over them, she expertly shuffles them into a neat... (more »)

Were there people that cared about me? Are they as scared as I am? I was ready to get going when I woke up. Today might be a good day, hopefully. I took a step outside the room to explore. After glancing around, I spot the man who I have seen a... (more »)

I look at her, and my world stops turning for a beat. It’s like every once of her is keeping me so damn grounded that the everything halts. Her eyes, they’re so brown. I love them. I don’t think brown eyes get enough credit, or maybe... (more »)
Written Beyond the Eyes

I looked down at my feet, my legs, my arms, my chest. One leg was bent in a position that didn’t seem normal. There was a blood pressure, heart rate, and oximeter machine in front of me. I was hooked up to at least two hundred different cords... (more »)

The Dark Room

“Are you cold?” “A little bit.” The rain was pitter-pattering down from the sky, cascading from the dark grey clouds. Peeking through the clouds was the orange light of the setting sun, the burnt sienna tint a small streak across... (more »)
