    It hangs around my neck Touching my very heart That has become poisoned An irreversible curse Signaled by the devil Who tempts the monster out of me A lust for blood Is all I need To satisfy my greed And as I drink It weighs heavy on my shoulders Forcing me to pull back And look upon the...

    The piano resonates its soft tune as she slowly moves her fingers from key to key. She had played this song so many times over the years that the intricate notes in the book were of second nature to her. “Start slow, finish big.” He once said to her. She laughed at his words, not believing...

    The wind rushed by as the car sped down the road. Light snow fell from the gray of sky that stretched millions of miles over the horizon.
