Dreams, Foreshadowing

I have seen these days like a dream. At the time I had little understanding of what these dreams meant. I wake to the sun intruding like a thief stealing my sleep. Someone once told me that I should write down my dreams as soon as I wake up, before […]

DEAR…

I search your eyes for meaning, your words for reason, waiting for you to say what I have always wanted to hear. These days are the longest days I’ve known so far. Waiting for the unknown to be my destiny. I hear your voice though we have never met. I […]

Alone…

Late at night I watch the stars. I can hear the wind through the trees and a dog nearby barking at the moon. I close my eyes for a moment to recall things of dreams almost forgotten. In my dreams I am not alone and when I open my eyes […]

Ghost #2

I feel nothing as I walk the halls of a new school. I was sent to the guidance counselor. She talked about feelings but I feel nothing. I met a teacher while waiting. He told me to come by his class after school. After school I walked in to an […]

Fragments of Memory…

The trees sway in the wind like laughter as I walk alone tonight. The dogs and birds are fast asleep. I hear my footsteps on the wet pavement. Walking alone at night my thoughts are random. Strange things come to me. Like, when do bees sleep? The volume of the […]

Tree to Nowhere #1

I woke up in a strange land surrounded by nothing familiar. I followed a stranger to this place I first thought I had imagined. I followed through a door in that tree down into the ground and up out the other side. I don’t know where things turned upside down. […]

Country Song #1

My story has no proper beginning. There is stuff about my story that occured before I was born. My story began with my parents. The problem is that to tell you this story properly I have to start somewhere in the middle. I was living with my grandparents because my […]

Ghost #1

They said it was sudden. They said many things meant to make me feel better. I wanted nothing to do with their good intentions. I wanted to be alone. No one tells you the truth when your dad dies. They want to make you feel better. In truth they want […]

LAte Night Writing

It’s late and my mind wanders, with each passing second, from one thing to another. Random. It’s like I’m searching for something that I can care about but all I find are useless things. I guess I should write something. This paper will not write itself. I like to write. […]

When Words Fail…

I see the stars. I see the trampoline. I hear your voice in the dark. I feel your skin between my fingers. I think so much of what could have been. I imagine us now if there had been more to us then. I loved you then and maybe I […]

You and My Memories

If I never hear from you I will never miss the words you could have said. I look back in time and memory to when you kissed me. I travel in time if only in memory to relive what we once had. You are now distant but once you were […]

The Prelude…

The week is nearly over as the alarm clock wakes me once again. I can hear my boss and i’m still in bed trying to imagine life without this job. I get ready for the day like I do everyday, a step by step process done without much thought or […]

Untitled New Story

I found myself on a Greyhound leaving the bright lights of the city for a place I’ve only heard about in stories. What brought about my exodus is another story. This is the story of how a gay boy went to live with his conservative grandparents. This is your warning: […]

Gone

The house shakes with each gust of wind, the thunder echoing throughout the empty house, and I stare out into the dark wondering if I’ll ever see him again. It was a minor disagreement that led to him storming out of the house. I could have stopped him from leaving […]

Where to Begin?

I think you know by now that these doubts linger with me everyday of my life, I wish I could take these things and remove them so easily but I don’t have the answers to the riddles of my heart. Where do I start to tell of the history and […]
