    The Easy(?) Way Out

    My Grandmother committed suicide, in May, 1998. But every suicide is like an iceberg, there’s a lot more to it. She shot herself with the gun that I touched as a child. The police report said that is was a .38 but I know for a fact it was a .32, I played with it, a child knows their favorite...

    The Jump (flash fiction)

    The Jump The trip was a short one. I had always imagined that it would take a lot longer to fall thirty stories. It wasn’t as scary as I had thought either. Standing on the ledge, I didn’t think I would be able to do it. I thought that I would chicken out. If she wasn’t there to watch, I...

    “Just come with us, Ry. You need to get out of the house. It’s been a week now.” Riley’s best friend urged her further. “You deserve it.” Riley stared blankly into the wall, almost as if she were looking through it. “I don’t want to. I hate the beach.” “You’ve said that about the mall, and...

    Don't Follow Me Down

    This was something I wrote, inspired by the song "Won't See You Tonight Part 1" By Avenged Sevenfold. Be easy on me, I'm normally a prose writer. I finally did it, tonight, I won’t be seen. To put it kindly, this bullet wiped me clean. Forgive me for what I did, but I had to leave Give me...

    Just something I'm working on. *Explicit Language, Sensitive Issues*

    Hi, amateur writer here. This is a very basic story I've started to work on recently. Critiques would be great, and I hope it's somewhat appealing. *** You idiot, you idiot, you idiot, you idiot, you idiot, you idiot! The words repeated in my head. I was supposed to wake up four fucking hours...

    Just One Step (

    First Post: "Comprehending"

    I wrote this poem a couple of years ago for a poetry class and figured it would be a good starter poem for me to post here. It isn't too long or abstract. A nice, quick read that is still powerful. Comprehending I still forget sometimes. I reach for the phone, wanting to tell you...
