    Claim my heart
    If you’re brave enough to try
    If you’re fully prepared to laugh with me
    And wipe away my tears should I start to cry

    Claim my heart
    If you’re man enough to care
    If you’re strong enough to […]

    Love is a science. It’s a give and take, trial and error. We form theories, ideas, make predictions…But in the end we sort of know what will happen. Art is also a science in some ways. You try and you try again […]

  • Jamie Locke commented on the post, chapped 7 years, 5 months ago

    The smoke curled away from her chapped lips in a thick cloud of memory. At that moment she was much older than 16. She felt as though time itself was angry with her, and as punishment there she was: 72 in the body […]

  • Jamie Locke commented on the post, camera 7 years, 8 months ago

    Huh…Not a good topic for fiction. Fine, real life accounts then.
    I’ve always been camera shy…I’m just too self conscious for photos. It’s always been annoying at family gatherings, seeing as I have relatives […]

  • Passionate. Love comes to mind but so does work…My work is in writing, and that is like love to me. Some people never find something that they are truly passionate about. I feel sorry for those people…It seems like unless you can find something you really love in life, you haven’t ever really lived at […]

    A little thing, just a faun. It stared up at me, over the barrel of my metal monster, as though it didn’t know what death was or just how it close it was to the wrong end of a bullet. I couldn’t shoot it. I had no reason to…I mean, it wasn’t good for meat […]

  • Jamie Locke commented on the post, straw 8 years, 3 months ago

    A single piece of straw hung from the corner of her mouth. She cocked her head to the side and shielded her eyes from the blazing mid-day sun. “I’d give ‘er three days ’till she pours.” Far on the horizon there were storm clouds, although there was no way she could have seen them. The […]

    Daily chores was never one of my favorite activities. Cleaning never caught my interest in any ways. It must be done though, according to the parents all over the world. Sometimes I wonder what teen actually wants to do their chores. Not me! That’s for sure!

    A feeling of hate rose up in his throat. He was the older brother, shouldn’t he be the one doing whatever he wanted? No, no. Apparently he should be the one setting the example. Oh yes, setting the example for the kid who hated him oh so dearly. He spat at the ground and mumbled […]

  • Jamie Locke commented on the post, maroon 8 years, 3 months ago

    It’s odd how I could be described that day as maroon. Not quite angry, no. Not angry enough to be blazing red or crimson. But certainly not reserved enough to be brown. Oh heavens no, brown would have been far too dull today. Today I was in uncanny resemblance to that color maroon. Irritated, misunderstood, […]

  • Jamie Locke commented on the post, cast 8 years, 3 months ago

    Cast out from society. That’s all she ever was. She cried each night as she poured over the daily rejections and she worked still each day to put on the right dress, the right mask, the right persona depending on who it was that she had to please. But she forgot to please herself. Never […]
