    Is it possible for death to break you little by little, all at the heads of your friends?

    “You’re insane.”

    She sat there, pressed up against the wall, a hopeless look in her eye. An inch from her face he held her gaze, hand leaned on the metal frame by her head. Nothing could escape him, and no one […]

    You’ve given me a problem.

    We met on a ship above the streams of blue. A blur of excitment, thrilling adventure. You said you couldn’t live without me. That you would try to win my heart, no matter what.

    One hundred laces to tie
    Meals to make
    Lessons to learn,
