Last Morning at Home

I hadn’t thought much about my last morning at home before I left for Fleet Academy. Being sentimental isn’t really my thing, which probably comes from knowing first-hand how fast you can lose something you care about. I didn’t walk around saying goodbye to my things like a little kid, I’d just rechecked my pack... Continue Reading →

His Sunset

You’ll never forget that phone call. The one you knew logically would someday come but could never have expected. You’ll never forget that politely ill-fitting greeting you gave to the officer on the phone that preceded the awful news he bore. You’ll never forget the oft described but only truly realized by experience gut punch... Continue Reading →

Throwin’ It Out There

Today is a free day in the Prompt Challenge, for me coming off a busy weekend where I wasn't able to post yesterday. But it was a worthwhile reason- time with your family is always worth it! So I thought I'd share a thought that's on my mind today as the residency and Writing Popular... Continue Reading →

Sonnet

We stand there together, my love and I, Hand in hand we examine the blue paint, That so gracefully has become the sky; Artists’ brushstrokes so fanciful and faint. This gallery bustles with those who stare, Looking for the secrets to what art means, Yet none in this room begins to compare, To my love... Continue Reading →

She could still hear the unholy wails and shrieks of those things that had once been her colleagues echoing down from the... Continue Reading →

Morning Wakes

Like a bookstore shelves’ dusty tome, Bound timeless and forever.   Such joy we once had, Such love and desire. Where did it all go bad,... Continue Reading →

From His Hotel Window

“Mom… Do you feel better yet?” asks the boy at the hotel window overlooking the park. “Not yet, sweetheart. I’m really sorry,” moans Mom from her pillow, the greenish pallor of her face not completely faded. Accursed shrimp cocktail from last night’s dinner… unavoidable, of course. But to happen in the middle of his special... Continue Reading →

The Girl With the Honey Colored Hair

Before I begin this short story, I wanted to let everyone know that I am starting a 30 Day Restart Prompt Challenge created by and alongside my writing buddy Jean over at her blog Miz Writer Lady. She will be posting her writings on these prompts as well, so please check them out! At the... Continue Reading →

Major Updates and Other Ramblings

Greetings all! It has been 11 months since my last post... Yup, total slacker. I have my reasons- reasons that really only make good sense in my head and probably sound like lame excuses to everyone else. But hear me out! First of all, the creation of this site was done as a school project... Continue Reading →
