What happens when the world begins to end? We fight each other; crazy, huh?
The hum of the city just waking up reached my ears and I smiled, letting the wind rustle my hair. It was peaceful; perfect. And then the gunshots began.
There’s is nothing more beautiful than the words that escape a person’s mouth when they are in a state of love. Destroy that love, and their mouths will be silenced for eternity.
I texted my daughter to ask her exactly where I was supposed to pick her up. Just as I hit “send” she bounced off my hood, crashed through my windshield and landed lifeless in my lap.
We are foolish. So much that we cannot even grasp the depths of our own ignorance.
My hands and underarms grew clammy with fevered regret as I doubled over in the simple but cushy chair, head down and fingers interlocked as though in prayer. Then, the grey-haired, bifocaled man uttered the magic words that would grip my body and make it convulse wildly in a fit of rapture: “You are NOT the father!”
“What are you doing on the roof staring into the horizon and wasting your time??”
“I’m just searching for a meaning to this existence”
Bessie, my white-faced golden retriever, trotted over to greet me with a smile and a wagging tail as she always does. She’s the best dog I’ve ever had, and I only wish I was still alive so I could give her the belly rub she so rightfully deserves.
The battle had been particularly bloody with casualty rates spiking on both sides. As the smoke and haze cleared; as the dead were being recovered from their foxholes and the surrounding field; I took pause at how peaceful I look.
My five year old son always wants to eat pizza for lunch while I insist green vegetables to keep him in sound health. He always wins by saying dead people can eat whatever they want, it’s not like he’ll die again.
I looked long into my bathroom mirror, not recognizing who stared back. When I heard a noise and turned around, I saw myself there, grinning, before the door locked shut.
The floor opened and the rope snapped taught. And though she hung by the neck, the witch continued her loud and shrill curse upon us.
“What do you think will happen if we all lived forever??” “The same thing that has been happening since we came into existence; killing each other and ruining the environment out of greed”
As she stepped up and out a sudden gust of wind blew through her hair, and as it flailed wild and free, so too did her heart, which raced with excitement at the thought of taking that next step. Breathe deep, eyes closed, JUMP…
“Tiddles wants his food mummy”My daughter whines pulling on my sleeve. I wonder how to tell her that her cat died three years ago, in the sam accident as her.
I was going to hide in the cupboard, she would never find me there. But it was taken by her late husband.
I looked thoughtfully into the stream. Then I realized it was looking back
“Don’t you dare!” he shouted, running towards me, trying to get the weapon from me.
But I dared… and I dared skillfully.
They were delighted to finally hear I have a dark side after confessing, during our team’s drinking session, that I’ve carefully planned to really hurt people for making fun of me all the time. I was too glad to see them truly happy for me for once that I decided to postpone tonight’s plan for them until the next team gathering.
As expected, I saw another disgusting pile of my roommate’s hair clogging the shower drain. Irritated, I started to forcefully pull the strands out only to hear someone’s screams of pain screech out from the drain pipe.
