• BasedOnFiction commented on the post, feud 8 years, 11 months ago

    When I moved back to town the family feud began. Today we are strangers, living in a strange land…tomorrow? Who knows what tomorrow shall bring?

  • The echo of the siren wailed through the night, announcing that something was terribly wrong. I found her in her bed, bottle of pills in her hand, computer open beside her. Word was up on the screen with one short sentence. I’m sorry, I just can’t do it anymore.

  • He stroked me with his rough hands, his whiskers stinging my face. I was only a child, yet he stole my innocence as a thief in the night.

  • Whipping in and out of the gusty winds, the sails nearly tearing, I raise the telescope to see if I can spot any sign of land.

    Death is coming home today. I feel his icy fingers as they twist around my ailing heart. I shudder and don a warmer sweater, but there will be no stopping him. I can already smell his decaying breath.

    Under the down blanket, next to the fireplace, snuggled in flannel is where you’ll find me this winter.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, sunlight 9 years ago

    I saw his face in the sunlight, and he bowed his head. I wandered down the beach toward him, but he continued to elude me.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, chatter 9 years ago

    I can’t tell you the day I noticed it…all the chatter in my head drowned out any thoughts I could ever hope to hang onto.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, left 9 years ago

    It was all I had left, those memories. They paraded through the dark corridors of my mind, taunting me, torturing me with the scent of lost innocence.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, tallest 9 years ago

    It was quiet in the autumn woods. The creek sang and the crickets chirped into the night. I climbed the tallest tree and waited for the moon to take her flight.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, walk 9 years ago

    I didn’t have to walk away, but it was all I could do. She looked at me with eyes that said she didn’t care, she wouldn’t be there for me anymore.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, buildings 9 years ago

    I lay on the cool ground looking up at the trees and buildings that surrounded me, feeling very small. Am I as really insignificant as I feel?

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, tale 9 years ago

    She slinks into the darkness of the night, searching for any kind of trouble to get into. This is the tale of my cat, Maggie.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, jazz 9 years ago

    I often wallow in the songs of yesterday, feeling those old feelings and all that jazz…

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, hostage 9 years ago

    I am stuck in the dark corridors of my mind, hostage to the shadows and memories that taunt me through long hours. Only death can set me free.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, help 9 years ago

    I searched forever for you, still I look, but know that without help, I will be lost for eternity.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, help 9 years ago

    I needed you, and you were there. I didn’t have to ask for help, you already knew. So when I hanged myself today, where were you?

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, without 9 years ago

    Without her I would be lost. She is the sun that awakens me, the breeze that rocks me to sleep.

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, without 9 years ago

    She was without a heart, that bitch. She took what I had and threw it in my face. She screwed my brother and my sister. How’s that for evil?

  • BasedOnFiction commented on the post, formal 9 years ago

    It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I was going to wear my tie dyed shirt and holey jeans, she was supposed to wear nothing at all. And now….it’s all gone formal – she’s wearing clothes….
