Monstrosity to Teach

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

Its short silver claws were the shape of perfectly cut half-moons; the hints of pink on its claws were blackened with dirt, or ink, some grimy substance.  Its unruly purple hair looked like the janitor took a scissors to the mop; ragged dreadlocks hanging over ancient eyes that didn’t hold a shadow of pity, or empathy. The only human feeling one could discern from those slanted, gravel-coloured irises would be a smug triumph, over its poor prisoners, casualties with their...

Conscious Room

PROMPT: Geography of Home

I am afraid of the dark. I am afraid of the things that (might) stare at me, the things that (might) peer at me through their multitude of eyes, and the worst- the things that (might) talk to me in the middle of the night. Every night is a battle to calm myself down as I stare at the ceiling and the unlit light, telling myself that my stuffed toys will magically turn into guardians to ward off the unsavoury...

Six Elements

'Almost 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus' -Wikipedia, Composition of the human body

Humans are made of six chemicals 
The elements of life summarised,
in what some say mechanicals 
in a way only nature had devised.

six elements of life summarised-
they tell me the particles of life,
in some way only nature devised;
ignore the vultures fed by human strife.
