The Pumpkin King

An empty husk walking amongst the living. Followed by curious spirits and mischievous ghouls. Dark omens stay hidden in shadow. For the Pumpkin King has made their presence known. Large back birds gather on rooftops. Watching the makeshift parade of misfits and tricksters. They knock on doors, demanding sweet treats. Anyone who turns them away... Continue Reading →

Keep The Night Going

Writing Prompt: “The Yellow lines on the hallway sped by in a blur, and we flew through the night, and we felt free. But we weren’t, and we knew it. We were running away from something, and running away was never the path to freedom. I thought about telling John to turn back. I thought... Continue Reading →

Desolate Traveler

On the road after the people drift off to sleep.Only the blinking red lights of pointless stops to guide me.Empty roads that rise and fall lazily.The sputtering street lights in front of me and the dark absence behind. Some travel with heart.A glorious purpose forward that guides them forwards.Not me.I am running.Running away from the... Continue Reading →

Long Winter Night

Writing Prompt: “You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry. You'd better hide, and not make a sound. The great forges of the North Pole roll like thunder. Great beasts are yoked to their sleighs. Proud evergreen forests groan, fall, and crash. Bells toll across the globe. Santa Claus is coming to town.” “Papa! Papa!”... Continue Reading →

Still Awake

Late night wandering.While still lying in bed.Mind racing.Heart just trying to keep up. Thinking of you.Thinking of us.Wishing on every star in the night.Hoping you are watching the sky and thinking of me. The night is quiet.But my heartbeat is in my ears.When will I will fall asleep?So I can see you in the morning.... Continue Reading →

A Haunted Night

Pumpkins carved and sitting on the doorsteps. Their faces twisted and laughing with light spilling out. Ghosts wander the streets as their howls mix with the chilled air. Wisps of fog obscure the sight of the haunted souls floating around. The sacred veil that separates the dead from the living is thin. Spirits take this... Continue Reading →

Depression In The Bed

Laying in my bed. Feeling like quicksand. Sinking into the sheets. And the pillows follow. Dark thoughts and swirling stars. Monsters have moved from underneath the bed to the corners of my mind. Looking down I see a depression left in the bed. Just an impression of my former self.   Header Photo Credit to... Continue Reading →

Streetlight Escapades

They were safe for the time being. But it was not time to let their guard down. Slowly, Samuel opened the car door, trying his best to not make a sound. He looked both ways down the street. All he could see was...   ...the flickering of the streetlights and the small shadows of moths... Continue Reading →

Saving Daylight

A blood ritual on the altar of time. Rolling back daylight for another hour of sleep. Trading an hour of sleep for eternal night. The people blame it on the farmers. Or blame it on Benjamin Franklin. But we still bring our sacrifices to the altar. Falling backwards in time. Springing forward in time. Trading... Continue Reading →
