​There she was crying in the darkness, Bounded by chains, drowning in her tears, In a prison of her own doing, The repercussions of her damaging actions, Pale, scared, half-dead, wishing for it all to end.

He probably has giving up a lot more than necessary to make as much as that … Continue reading His Tears

The Rains

At The Riverbank

The early morning sky was as dark as the night that had just passed, painted with heavy clouds. The freezing air was clouded  with dust and dry leaves as the wind blew them like a hurricane. Bimbo braved the eerie weather and ran to the stream a couple of miles away to fetch the water … Continue reading At The Riverbank

Karma’s Revenge

Addicted (I)

‘Ike! Ike!’ The ball rolled to my feet at average speed, and with high prospects, I expertly controlled it to a stop. I looked up and there was Obi, the burly central defender, charging at me, trying to decipher my next move with the ball. His breath came in short sharp gasps and could be … Continue reading Addicted (I)

Procession On A Good Friday

I remember seeing you that day, I watched you laughing as my flesh was torn away in my great tribulation, my dripping blood and disfigured body brought no sympathy from you, instead, your hands met each other in joyful applause while your heart lept in drunken jubilations.

The Persistence of Neon, A Short Story

Writings By Ender

When she entered the room I noticed her eyes eyes first. They were bright blue and held a secret. She smiled at the clerk at the counter. She came every weekend accompanied by two bodyguards but they weren’t the expected sort of guard, rather two tall men, one rather large and the other openly armed with a pistol. The round bodyguard had his t-shirt tucked accentuating his beer-bloated gut. The woman always dressed the same black mermaid dress despite the weather.

The woman’s name was Raquel and she boasted a peculiar appetite of degrading, violating and abusing android women.
