I can’t criticize
I am too little
Too belittled
I probably can’t
Even spell it

Creative Writing, Poetry, Writing

Swathes in fields
Too many

Black and white
The headlines
That sowed the seed

The problems
The ethics
The guns

the gas
and the memories

Creative Writing, Fiction, Short Stories, Thirteen Tales, Writing


We have a love/hate relationship with it.

We do not want to be afraid. We want safety and comfort.

Or do we?

Underneath, secretly we crave it. The thrill of fear, the arousal of danger.

So turn off the lights. Open the pages and delve in.

Find the thrill in the words.
