Remission

I had always imagined I’d meet the love of my life in the most romantic of places like a cafe or on a train and we’d fall in love from the moment our eyes met. But then I met you in the most mundane place imaginable and everything I had imagined was wrong. I didn’t […]

Tenebris

Vision failing, black veil encroaching. Something is not right. No light to define darkness. No shadow to pronounce light. What place is this? Umbral figure appears, cloaked in cosmic dust. Extending hand, beckons me near; cannot turn away. Voice, like splitting glacier demands payment. Quoniam sapientia carnis. Hands meet, my flesh seared encased in Mantle, […]

Scope

To mirror the world, Or to hide behind glass What better way to perceive the world than through the lens of our own truths? If we are what we have done, and not yet what we will be, what do we reflect? If the glass will not betray you, why do we hide? What really […]

Unshelled

An antimony core housed in a jacket of copper. A powder as dark as the shores of Iceland and a primer that grants the life-giving spark, to be expulsed from a lubricated chamber to ensure maximum accuracy. Unlimited potential all packed tightly in a 9 millimeter shell. But let us not fool ourselves. The intent […]

Transient

What are you afraid of, young one? That maybe, for once in your life, you’ve found happiness? Do you fear losing it? Good. That is how you know it matters, how special and fragile it is. Does that mean to forsake it? Of course not. Let yourself feel the power of this love, let this […]

Infinitum

Reprieve

The rumble of thunder passes by overhead. The clouds break screaming as lightning rends the sky. The Earth grows to a fever pitch challenging the Sky above. The heavens consumed in rage hurl bolts of blistering bitterness upon the callous Earth setting fire to His works. Thrice does she strike and thrice does he respond […]

Ebon

Must I show you? Walk with me, won’t you? You believe to know me, all that I was all that I am all that I will be. But you haven’t the slightest idea. I am the result of a thousand loves that have spanned across the ages. The blood of my ancestors courses through my […]

Solemnly

I know That I am no good for you. That I do not deserve you or the love that you could give. I know that I am not worthy of you; but listen. I know that I cannot promise you that dark clouds will never hover over our lives or that the future will bring […]

Trial

I pity the beings born in my time the most. They believe that it is well to not care to harden their hearts to suppress their own emotions and heart for the sake of what, exactly? How is it that we have become so ashamed of ourselves that we find our own emotions more blight […]
