The House
The House
The house was quite. Absolute silence used to make me uneasy, but now it reassures me. Not only was it silent, it was freezing. Ice crept up the windows and doors, enslaving the house. The frozen floors popped and moaned with my weight. I sneaked toward the kitchen. The room wasn’t wrecked like I expected, but a random house in the country wouldn’t get much attention. It was as if the family just got up from their meal and abandoned their life.  
 I shut the doors quietly behind me, careful not to make unnecessary noises. I wasn’t sure who I was so afraid of disturbing, but the thought lingered in my mind like a bad taste. The high ceilings echoed my movements, slow shuffling and muffled coughs. My teeth chattered and my bones ached as the winter wind swept across me.
Why was I here? What would an old house have to interest me? The house was notorious for suicides. Every family who occupied it would inevitably kill themselves. It didn’t take

Literature
Ra
A man hung from a post on a large canopied bed in the middle of an enormous, empty room save the bed and an oversized oak-framed mirror with large oak hooks at the top. He was laughing hysterically. His green eyes wide and frightening. His lips were pulled back in a grin to his ears and colored crimson. His pale skin made him look as if he were dead. His stringy brown hair dangled in front of his manipulated face. He laughed and flipped backward landing on his hands. His cackling sent shivers down my spine. He swiftly walked to me on his hands blocking any way around.  He flipped back to his feet and pounded his palms against the wall putting only inches between our bodies. I closed my eyes and turned my face away. I could feel his breath beating on my neck, I felt his eyes traveling down to the edge of my collar bone.  I opened my eyes. He was a head taller than me, and he crouched lower. Eye level with me, I could see the ridges around his pupils. Red veins shot i

Literature
Digging
I'm tearing at my skin. Trying to uncover another being, trying to find some depth. I'll mean nothing to anyone if I don't prove my existence. I'm searching for someone inside, hoping and saying a continuous prayer with an atheist tongue that I will not lose myself halfway in. Because if I lose me, and who I find is evil...where do I go? Who do I become...

Rebirth
Death itself breathing over my face, inhaling disease into my lungs. I thought this would be painless, thought it would be quick, but the endless questions of it is more torment than I could've imagined. Left to wonder what will be, I'm staring into the darkest blue vast, my empty eyes, my empty soul. I've sealed the windows and I've boarded up my heart. I only hope my rebirth will come soon if rebirth will ever come.

Literature
Judge
This gully is deep and the darkness is coming.  I found myself lost in the world unknown to man, unknown to god.  My soul will not be missed, it was hardly known.
I tried to love, but I could not love myself in the slightest.  I tried to see through closed eyes, but now, in the pit of darkness, I see clearly that I'm alone.
Take the burdens and put them on me - I deserve no more than bearing a cross of pain and remorse.  I wish to feel the thorns cutting into my skin, I wish to feel the insects in my skin reminding me of the waste I am.  Do not remember me for I am not worth it.

Literature
Scream For Me
The faces you made as I took you to the floor, the sounds that echoed only made me love you more...
My prisoner, my whore of the heart, I ask of you, I recieve. I want, I want, I need. Tear the flesh and take the meat.
Tell me what you want to hear, tell me all those pretty little lies.  Sugar coat the grief, sweeten the deal.

Literature
Conquered
Conquered
I dangled the four-leaf clover necklace from my fingers and watched the sun sink behind the trees.  It pulled the memories down with it.  The sun took it's retinue down and hid them from the world - hid them from me.  I was utterly alone, thanking what god existed for the lack of monophobia in my mind.
Rain drops dripped from the leaves as it drizzled from the sky.  It unleashed the scents of the moist earth which tickled my nose as I took it in.  The smell of rain, fighting against my will to forget, brought a memory, an indelible memory the sun had forgotten to steal.
Suddenly, my lungs became hermetic and, in my attempt to breathe, I felt the tears stream down my face.  The tears I had become fond of.  They were filled with fear and uncertainty, pain and guilt.  Four emotions I memorized but they are completely invictus.  Unconquerable.  When the breath finally came, it stru

Literature
The Silenced Pianist
               He ran.  He ran until he felt his lungs were about to burst.  He ran until he could feel his inner core, the deepest part of him, begin to burn and catch fire.  He ran.  What was it he ran from?  What scared him so that he would rather his entire being collapse than to face this unknown phobia?  Was it himself?  No.  Perhaps it was his past.  No.  It was the one thing he felt no control over - the fact that no one could see him.  The sole purpose of exhausting himself was his involuntary invisibility.
Night consumed him as he stopped suddenly and sunk into the murky, wet, disgusting swamp.  He closed his eyes.  His chest rose and fell heavily as if it were about to collapse at any given moment.  
Name: John Doe.  Age: 18.  Occupation: Dream

Literature
Kerosene
Left in the dark
No place to turn
No ears to speak to
Pound on the stronghold, but no success
No friends to call my own
No childhood memories left untarnished
No truth
Nothing is ever the same
Grab the sword and march to battle
Leave the shield, it would do no good
This fight is skin on skin,
Heart to heart
Listen to the sword sing
It cries of harmful words, a ballad of pain
Cold eyes setting the scene
Don't you wish you had a shield?
Crawl away with unclean wounds
Unclean hands and an unclean mind
Broken pride cannot easily mend
Like a broken mirror, your pride shows your face
Look at yourself
Are you happy with the image you've stolen?
The words you've stolen from my lips,
The world you've strung apart will only swallow you whole in a dark abyss
No blessing will sooth your cursed soul
You've burnt me
You've scarred me
But most importantly, you've opened my eyes
Drink from this cup,
A cup of sweet wine
Bittersweet to your tongue
Pungent in ever sense of the word
Feel it numb you
Feel

Wow, yeah. Getting across the world can take some bit of work, eh? :D You'll make it! I'm doing okay, just super busy lately with school and ... I'm teaching now too! Yeah, as part of my PhD program they have me teaching freshmen Engineering students how to computer program. Yikes! hehe. But, otherwise I'm well.

P.S. I Did! I keep meaning to reply and keep forgetting ... I'll get on that!

Teaching, eh? How's that working out for you? I'd end up throwing crap at my students haha. So, did you end up going back to school or retake the test? It's been too long lol I can't remember exactly. Over the past few days, I've been working on a script for a short film competition :D :D It's only to be 10 minutes long, but it's still getting me writing and I may get noticed. Trying not to get my hopes up, but it's the first time I've done it so I'm excited!

P.S. I've been wondering if it went through or not. A few curses to your name may have been said haha. :) no rush.
