“Are you staying?” I already knew the answer, the small, chilled word in my chest. “No. I can’t.” “You mean you won’t.” A silent moment there, neither daring to touch the jagged edge. He stared down at his hands, beautiful, smooth, “I just can’t.” A blinding white-flash of rage rose up inside me. “GO THEN!” I grabbed my bag and rushed out of the cafe. He caught up and we walked in silence for some time. “Starry starry night,” he sang softly as we walked toward the pier. I squeezed …

The lights were soft, yet not too dark, like they were in need of a change soon but not enough that management would deign to buy more. “I’m sorry Alex, did you hear me?” Brought out of my reverie, I looked back down and noticed Lana standing there, a nervous smile playing across her lips. I didn’t notice she’d come in. She’d chosen for us all to meet at a little quaint coffee shop that was modelled after the old-fashioned Swedish coffee-houses of the past. It looked like the late …

A lone table lamp near the window caused a strange haze in the room. Piled clothes were trying to escape the crack of half-open antique wooden wardrobes.  Hard binds and paperbacks fought their way to establish supremacy in random spaces. Those lucky books treasured childhood photographs with an infecting smile as bookmarks.  The chair in front of the perfectly squared table seated a tall, fair, hunchbacked stature staring at the infinite. As he scratched his immature stubble that painted polka dots of sorts on his face, he touched the familiar …

I used to think that people were only capable of loving one person but I guess I was just ignorant. I recently read that there are three distinct types of love that one can feel for another. While the ideal would be to experience all three with the same person, I can’t say the same for myself. Looking back, I realized that I’ve encountered three different people who represent these three forms of love in my life. The first of which is lust. At my age, I thought the raging …

Dan has always loved this about her, her ability to see more in a picture then must people. Dan he was more of a practical guy with a “If you don’t judge a book by its …

Decorated was the word that first came to mind when he noticed her cheeks. Breaking eye contact only very briefly because he wanted to hold her gaze as long as possible, the strange patterns on her cheeks caught his attention. They might have been scars, burn scars or, had they been located somewhere else on her body, the kind of scars left after a surgical attempt to remove tattoos. The thought intrigued him for a moment and suspended the moment of greeting in time.   Suddenly aware of her soft …

I met the Devil today while driving home. No, he does not have horns nor does he have a pitchfork. He is a man, an ordinary man that blends in with everyone. He is neither black nor white, but he is a human being. The Devil can control you without you even knowing he is doing it. I was driving on the Interstate and something told me to pull over and pick a hitchhiker up. I would never do this! I told myself. “You are crazy if you pull over.” …
