What is friendship?
A relation which makes you happy 
Can you describe it better?
A feeling of trust and strange emotional safety?
Yeah i am grasping it but a little bit more
Anyone could be a friendship's bond bearer a person or a book maybe? The bearer trickle you with mischievous act and sometimes can even annoy you but when everything falls you don't have to turn and shout at the bond bearer "don't walk away". The bearer would be...

The Rabbit Hole

FREE WRITING

Fairies lead with light
As a child shall flirt with fright
She’ll follow limbo despite
Everything that’d be willing to bite

Deeper into the dark she follows
She’ll meet the joker who borrows
Hearts like borrowed from A Queen
Her companion drawing her first step to clean his aches, dreaming of what could’ve been

A Tormented Reality

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

He sits rigidly, ensnared in his own reality but in the comfort of everyone else's. Unable to escape, unable to endure what's to come. White knuckles, sweaty palms, shallow breaths. A boy sitting in his grandmother's rocking chair late at night, rocking back and forth, staring ahead.  His eyes dart around the room. 

They've come for me. Small spider-like creatures scuttle across the walls in swarms. The ones that visited me in my dreams as a small child. I'd wake...

The Thing

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

You can't sense this thing. It senses you, though. You can't listen to this thing unless it beckons you to. It was a she, a generally nice she. Until she was hungry. That's when she became the thing​. Unreadable, unrecognizable, intolerable. Anything was a snack to it when she smelled the fresh blood, but the only thing to quench her thirst was a human. Able to disguise herself as a human, she stays hidden until you least expect it....

PROMPT: Friendship Tweet

Friendship is running through the dark, empty streets of your town on a Tuesday night, hand in hand in flimsy pajama pants and large, woolen coats on a 1 am McDonald's run for an Oreo McFlurry and a Happy Meal because he broke up with you over text. Friendship is watching How to Be Single together, huddled under blue cotton blankets, empty family size barbecue chip bags laying scattered across the covet, the fairy lights in your room casting a...

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

It’s there in the spaces you don’t want to see, the spaces where time isn’t there and reality is just altered enough to make you want to leave. It lurks in bathrooms in concerts, abandoned 7/11s, the highway at 3AM and the only sound in your car singing through the nights. You can feel it when you’re in a school that’s out of session, drifting past the lockers that have the echo of a slam that occurred hours before. It’s...

Dreaming Dream

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

I am furry. Tall. Black. Pointed teeth. Sharp claws. Maybe scary. Maybe not. I don't know.

All I know is that I am different. I am invisible. But I can see the humans roaming around me. Around their systematic place. Busy.

I'm bored. With nothing to do except watching these working people all day and night.

Until such time, a human, white boy, with black hair, became able to see me. 

"Hi Mr. Monster!", he said smiling.

In No Time

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition

    Our setting is a dimly lit bistro, a counter man being strangled by a necktie, and a picture box on an infinite coil.
The indicated sub-zone bum palace of shoplifted one-liners and wasted boozers, deprives the general public of it's preferred
animating vigor, in advance to a covert band of wired characters. I may call the dank lighting an atmospheric selection, all the same a means to screen away migrants. This misfortune of an inhuman counter man, cosmically vivid lounge,...

The morning stretched calm and silent. The alarm clock went off in Jake's room. Cutting through the silence like a sharp blade. He woke up. Dazed again. Same old breakfast that he had everyday. At the station, he noticed a kaleidoscope churning colours and was mesmerised. The train stopped with a whoosh. The journey to the office was a blur. Inside his little cubicle he stamped away at the papers. Slowly, his eyelids drooped over heavy eyes. Ding. The bell...

To Kassandra

The entrance 
To the room
Was low
And old.
A young 
Lady stood
In the
Doorway.
The prophetesses
Red ringed 
Mouth 
Opened,
"I See
Death In
Your Wake."
Her voice 
Rasped like
Sand and 
Her eyes
Bore into 
Mine.
"I doubt it."
I replied 
foolishly.
She stumbled
Forward, screaming
About how
She was not
Crying wolf.
Her hands
Were strong
Around my neck.
My vision faded
To
Black.
