    Blank, black eyes set in a bone face stared back at me. A skeleton clothed in black, it held out its hand. The white bone grasping, begging for something. I stared in horror and knew even before his raspy voice spoke: “one token to ferry across.”

    Vapor, I got nothin’ today. Vapor, vapor, vapor, vapor, vapor, & vapor!

    They were like magic. The words woven around, touching each of our hearts and minds. I believed I could touch stars when he spoke; and swim across the sea to the untouchable lands. A friend told me he felt as if he could fly when the stories were spoken, woven like a spiders web in circles. All making us believe in the impossible but it was…[Read more]

    It crept up on me like a spider to prey. Starting from the inside and slowly coming forth until I was engulfed. Burning. Shining. Scorching. I was the sun. The light at the end of a dark tunnel. The halo over angel’s heads. The flames in pits of hell. I was fire. Fire. Fire. Fire. Fire. Lord of the sky. Fire. I was destruction and rebirth. Chaos…[Read more]

The dark pit that swallowed me whole, attempted to destroy me. But I…[Read more]

    Once great, I was. Whispered praises sounded through the streets. I was the top. They pulled me up like a a god.

Inside I was twisted, all coils and springs.…[Read more]

    It came in a whoosh! and I was a goner. Swept away, spiraling downward. This was time, they told me. This long way down to the ancients. Going over centuries and across lands. Empire’s rose and fell into chaos. I saw it all. This is only one timeline, they told me, they’re many others all woven in possibilities of what might have been.

    In a place with no sky nor moon or stars. Where the ground was brittle with dips that you could fall forever into. Trees did not exist, nor flowers or grass. Water lapped at the edges, a black and murky color. This place was a dream, a nightmare. And I loved every second of this cold world. A world with no sky, not even stars. Where the ground was…[Read more]
