Today’s Daily Prompt: Glass Can she see the moon’s reflection? Is she close enough to the lake to see it? I think so. I can feel her nearby. It’s so still tonight. Like glass. A mirror reflecting … What? For me, the moon is the passing of time, it’s phases reminding me how long I’ve been here. I wish it could be a memory of a night under a full moon. Soft skin, gentle touches, sighs of pleasure. Instead it will be a splash of red on pale sand. Or the dark shadow of a fallen body. I don’t want to kill to escape butRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: False “Let’s play a game Alex.” “Sure,” Alex smirked at the agent, no name needed, they were all interchangeable anyway. “I’ve always enjoyed scrabble.” “Yes, very good,” the agent nodded, a faint smile on his bland face. Bland hair, bland face, bland suit. “I thought we’d play ‘True or False’ though.” “You thought that did you?” Alex looked amazed. The agent didn’t dignify that with an answer. “Let’s begin. True or False: your name is Alex Kennedy.” “Was that a question or a statement?” Alex lifted a land and rubbed his jaw as he frowned. “True or False: your name is AlexRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Darkness When the lights go out I think of him. I wait for his voice. I want it, crave it. What will he say tonight? I chase sleep like an addict, I need it, it’s my path to him. The relief when I hear him … it’s the first deep breath you take when you surface from being underwater. The way your body relaxes when you’ve been cold for so very long and the warmth seeps into you. Everything else fades away … I picture us, he walks up to me, black jeans and tshirt, his dark hair tousled. He has thatRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Forbidden “Hey baby, I’ve got something for you,” Alex grinned at me as he walked in the front door. “Oh really?” I looked at his empty hands with a little smirk. “Is it invisible?” “Hmm, nope,” he leaned down over me gave it to me. His tongue sliding slickly between my lips, a teasing lick, a nip on my lower lip. I sighed as he started to back away. The man could kiss. “More,” I whispered as I pushed my hand into his hair, holding him in place as I breathed him in. I loved his hair, the dark strands like silkRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Layers where am I? I feel so alone yet … not? Trapped? I need … her? I can feel …  need her to feel … Me? hello? Can you hear me? who am I? “Alex?” alex. I am Alex. Where am I?” “Come on man, you’re scaring me!” sorry. I can’t find … me? “Can you feel me?” Skye whispers, her breath warm against my ear. “Alex? It’s Joel. Can you hear me?” sky? I know the sky … where is it? where am I?” “Alex?” he calls. “Who are you?” she whispers. Alex “Alex,” I whisper. “Alex,” she whispers. “Oh thankRead More →

I’m surrounded by chaos today, my mind full of voices, my environment even more so. Solitude used to be a friend of mine, not so much lately. I’m trying to listen to the loudest voice but others keep yelling at me, so many fragments waiting. They’re a snarky charming bunch with too much attitude. I just cut one’s hair, a warning to the others maybe? I have the power. Or maybe just the illusion, the delusion. I like to pretend I’m in control anyway …Read More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Autonomy “I can’t do this alone,” Skye spoke aloud as she paced. She couldn’t sleep, had tried sitting and meditating but she couldn’t settle. She was restless, unsettled, had that feeling of expectation. Something or someone was waiting for her, she could feel it but she couldn’t reach them. Reach Him. Six months ago she’d had the first encounter with him. She wouldn’t call it a dream, it had been while she was in that in-between state, not asleep but not awake. He had said two words, “Hear me.” And she had. So much so she’d searched her room for anything toRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Island “Well, did it work?” The anxious question drew Alex out of his meditative state sooner than he liked. Without answering he stood and stretched, paced across the small space three times before sitting back down on the cot. “Alex?” Joel glared at him from his position on his own cot. “Did you contact her again?” “Yes it worked,” he closed his eyes for a moment to better remember the feel of her under his hands. “And? Will she do it?” “It doesn’t work like that Joel,” Alex said, his voice clipped. “It’s been six months, surely you’ve made progress?” “Six monthsRead More →

Today’s Daily Prompt: Burn “I want you to feel what I feel,” he whispered, his breath hot against her ear. “Tell me,” she lifted her hands and shoved her fingers roughly into his hair. “Hard,” he pushed against her. “Wet,” his tongue licked her ear lobe making her shiver. “Hot,” he slid his hand under her the back of her shirt, his fingers rough against her skin. “I feel that,” she said breathlessly. “What else?” “You want more?” he slid his mouth down her throat, leaving a wet trail. “No, you want more,” she tilted her head to give him better access. “Soft,” he draggedRead More →

That moment when you realise you’ve spent the last hour looking at photos of Matt Walst instead of writing! Time well wasted but nor really productive. Stalling, not procrastinating. My progress is impeded by my lack of creative direction. And then I go and do an image search … lost time again. I’m stuck in a scene, like I’ve hit the pause button in a movie, only I can’t go forward because I don’t know what I want to happen next. ‘Casual Sex’ in on replay for this one. At the same time another story is building in the background … maybe I need toRead More →
