(continues from here) “What are you thinking about tesoro?” Luka’s voice was as lazy as the fingers he was combing through my hair as we sat on the couch, a tangle of limbs as a movie played that neither of us was truly watching. He was thinking about his work and I was thinking about… other things. “My parents.” “What about them?” “Just how happy they are.” “Are we not so happy then?” Luka asked lightly. “Of course,” I answered quickly, maybe too quickly as I found myself flat on my back with Luka hovering over me, looking deeply into my eyes. “Then why don’tRead More →

I’m no paragon of virtue, vice is too much fun I’m never being chased, yet I’m always on the run I’m lusting over here, and preening over there Everything is to excess, consumption everywhere Don’t be jealous of my ways, you know we’re all the same We leave the mess for someone else, and go on with our games There’s a question in your eyes, am I proud of what I’ve done? I don’t have time to think of that, I’m too busy having fun! I might leave you sad and broken, I might leave you mad and crazy I might care for you anotherRead More →

Have you all met Alex? He was in a story I wrote once but at the end, he walked out of it. I was confused. Why didn’t he like the way I planned for things to end? “It wasn’t my story babe,” he says with a patient sigh. “So you’ve said, but-” He yawns, bored with this conversation already. “No buts. That’s it. You know this, get over it.” That’s Alex. I’ve written about him before here and in a lot of other places too. He’s one of the voices in my head, an imaginary friend you might say. “I am not!” he gasps. “PrettyRead More →

Days go by in increments Seconds, minutes, hours Still I’m here alone Staring at the flowers You sent them to appease A token of your regret For that thing you don’t remember The one I can’t forget You radiate such charm No one would ever know The real you that you hide The one that lurks below The face they’ll never see That haunts me in my dreams The monster that you are That loved to hear my screamsRead More →

  I was going to start this post like so… This is my impression of an interesting post… I was going to write something about how you need a hook to draw readers in, maybe something funny so I was going to have a funny meme… But then I came across this tagged ‘Do your best Batman impression…’ It doesn’t get much better than that… does it?Read More →

(continues from here) Dean came to stand beside me and draped his arm over my shoulder as I leaned against him “Who else has seen this?” “Just us,” he said and I puffed out a breath in relief. “And me.” “Hunter!” I shrieked and turned towards my twin’s voice to find him stepping out of the shadows. “I hate it when you do that,” I said with a scowl then turned back to the painting. “Fuck, how long have you been there?” Dean growled glaring at him as Hunter came to join us. “Well that’s a cluster fuck Cass,” he said with an arch ofRead More →

(continues from here) Luka had cooked dinner, my favourite chicken and pasta, and we were lingering over bowls of ice cream as we caught up on each other’s day. Nothing unusual, except the ice cream, we didn’t eat that every night. Luka was telling me about the testing he had been doing the last couple of nights how it had identified vulnerabilities that led to more testing and how excited he and my father were about it all. Yes my boyfriend worked with my father but that wasn’t how we had met. Luka’s dad and mine were old friends so we’d grown up knowing eachRead More →

(continues from here) “Why do you come here?” I didn’t startle at his voice. I’d heard him following me, heard him swear and scramble at a couple of the jumps too. Couldn’t deny I’d been grinning then either. What did surprise me was that he didn’t sound out of breath. “The view,” I said as I braced my hands on my hips and looked out at the city. “Why do you?” “The view,” he echoed and I turned towards him. “Uh uh, don’t look,” he said softly and I stopped. II didn’t know why I was following his order, the command in his voice. IRead More →

(continues from here) Five weeks ago… I climbed out of bed and stretched my arms over my head feeling pleasantly sated but restless. Luka reached out a hand and ran it down the side of my body to give my ass a squeeze as I grinned down at him. “Where do you think you’re going?” he asked in a lazy voice, doing a little stretching of his own making his muscles ripple. I let him grab my hand and tug me back down beside him then lowered my mouth to his for a lush kiss. Everything about the man was lush from his lips toRead More →

Life in a big city should be easier than this, but when everyone knows who you are, getting into trouble can be difficult. I huffed out a breath as I leaped across a gap between buildings, my arms pumped as I ran for the next edge then I was hurtling through space to land in a crouch, dust rising up around my boots. I paused there for a minute, breathing, listening, waiting, then I stood up and walked to the edge of the roof to look down at the city. “You pick the strangest places.” I closed my eyes at the sound of his voiceRead More →

It was the qualm before the storm The cats were stacked against us We were banking up the wrong tree We’d put our legs in just one basket It took two of us to tangle And we’d really lost the pilot Up the creek with just one peddle There were no clowns with silver linings To add assault to injury We weren’t playing with a full duck And the elves had left the building What’s that saying? Just my luck!Read More →

Watch me cry my bitter tears Slowly washing away my fears I’m standing stronger than before Since you don’t love me anymore The words you said you can’t recall We were always headed for this fall The time for change has passed us by There’s nothing left to do but cry Cry baby, as I walk away Cry baby, I wont rue this day Cry baby, we weren’t meant to last Cry baby, now I’m in your pastRead More →

I love this prompt! Everyone’s singing Sympathy For The Devil and that’s totally my jam. Pleased to meet you indeed… Me? Let me introduce myself… hahaha. That’s redundant and maybe bordering on plagiarism. You already know me. I’m the little voice inside your head who tells you to eat the cake, drink the alcohol, spend the money, break the speed limit. All those little things you know you shouldn’t be doing. And what do you do about it, about me? You feed me. You give in to my urges. You eat and drink. You live to excess. All the while moaning about how life isn’tRead More →
