    the blade gleamed silver in the moonlight. the edge was sharp, so sharp. the lightest touch drew blood on his finger and ignited the bloodlust within. this would do. this would do just fine. he could slip in and out, slip the blade in and out, countless times before it lost its appeal.

    she held the child carefully. fragile, she was. the daughter, yes, and the mother. she was careful, so careful, not to let any harm come to her baby. she cherished the little one, like any mother should. she didn’t even realize the girl in her arms was of porcelain.

  • firelight commented on the post, altitude 1 year, 6 months ago

    the mountain towered over everything in sight. capped with white, clouds obscuring the summit as it soared into the sky. never had she seen such a sight. it stole her breath, made her feel weak and more insignificant than ever.

  • firelight commented on the post, decent 1 year, 6 months ago

    she looked well enough. not particularly beautiful, not particulaly ugly. she was pretty enough, dressed well enough, face made up enough. enough for her, at least. to the world, she was something else. something ethereal, celestial, a miracle of nature.

    she was screaming, her voice reaching new heights with every shriek, yet no one heard her. she screamed louder and louder, but her voice, so shrill in her own ears, was silent.

  • firelight commented on the post, waltz 1 year, 6 months ago

    he waltzed into the room like it was the natural thing to do. when everyone stopped, turned to stare, he danced a little jig and shot a winning smile at the crowd. waltz in, waltz out, just to turn heads, just for the attention.

  • firelight commented on the post, figure 1 year, 6 months ago

    the figure in the shadows, like a shadow itself. flickering in the lamplight. it seemed to fade in and out of reality like a phantom. perhaps it was a phantom. a ghost. a figment of your imagination. your delusion.

  • firelight commented on the post, echo 1 year, 6 months ago

    Echoes in the cave. Resounding, calling out, pleading. Help me, help me, help me. Trapped, trapped, trapped. The voice was haunting, weak and raspy. How much time before the air ran out? How much time before the dust was too heavy to breathe?

  • firelight commented on the post, handle 1 year, 7 months ago

    she couldn’t handle it. not the pressure. not the expectations. not the love or the joy or the pure pleasure of experiencing life. who cared what she did? she was content to live in misery. she was content to live with the hatred and the sorrow and the pure pain of experiencing death.

  • firelight commented on the post, hosts 1 year, 10 months ago

    It was the party of the century. Everyone who was someone was there. No one was left unattended. Not a single guest. Not a single parasitic host. Because they were everywhere, thriving, becoming who they were meant to be.

  • firelight commented on the post, monk 1 year, 11 months ago

    He stared silently out the window of the monastery. The night was cold, the moonlight seemed harsh, and the stars distant. What had he done with his life? A sigh escapes, what should have been a prayer. No words, no words.

    dashing through the snow, on skies and under the sky, clear as day or black as night. cold air swirling around him, snowflakes falling, falling with him.

  • firelight commented on the post, mermaid 2 years, 6 months ago

    she was majestic in her own way. her tail gleamed in the sunlight, the most intense shade of emerald green you’ll ever see. she didn’t come to the surface often, but when she did, she seduced and destroyed every man she met.

  • firelight commented on the post, switch 2 years, 6 months ago

    they switched places, just for one day. learning. walking down another path. it was how they did it, how they survived. all of them, switching places, just for one day. it showed the light and the darkness, the ultimate understanding of joy and sorrow. life as they knew it was turned upside down.

  • firelight commented on the post, lunatic 2 years, 6 months ago

    he was in the institution, and would be for the rest of his life. his crimes were many, all placed by insanity. life as he knew it was over, a life he never knew he had. his memories were vague, if they were memories at all. maybe he really was a lunatic, and all he had to call his own were his delusions.

  • firelight commented on the post, western 2 years, 7 months ago

    it was just like the old westerns. showdowns, duels, pulling out the guns. although not so much a showdown as it was cold-blooded murder. no one was shooting back.

  • firelight commented on the post, rested 2 years, 7 months ago

    restless. how long has it been since she slept? forever awake, or so it seems. forever alone, and maybe that’s why. thoughts spinning, never ending. never ending story. always awake, always wondering. what would have happened? speculate forever. forever alone, forever awake, dreaming of the stories, dreaming of the hope and despair.

  • firelight commented on the post, drummer 2 years, 7 months ago

    drums, drums, drums in the distance. pounding over and over, rhythmically, so rhythmically they may not be real. perfection in their performance, defining the steady beat of the heart.

  • everlasting life, everlasting love. everyone’s dream – or is it? She does not wish to live forever. he does not wish to love forever. the endless torments of day to day life and love – who can say this is such a beautiful thing, to last forever?

  • firelight commented on the post, proof 2 years, 7 months ago

    it was all the proof she needed. clothes on the floor and bottles in the fridge. nothing was as it should be, because nothing was all he was.
