Lies Truth

This is me, I know you won’t want to read this because it will make you sad but I can’t be a coward. And that doesn’t make you one. But it does make some. And I won’t be. I want to make you promises but the risks are huge, you know that and I know that. I have to raise Lazarus from the deep and when I do everyone will benefit from it and that makes me proud. I know you have said it before but I can’t lie to you. I

Hi, this is me. I’ll be home later tonight! Love, John

Parts in space and time…

Rolling through, what seems to be, time. All that is, all that was, are particles in time of visit. In time travel, we tend to wonder about each decision we made, each choice for shame.

‘I Think I Have Too Much Money’

Scowls as I enter into the marble-decked hall I call my ‘second living room’. Jealousy maybe, or its more vicious brother Envy. As a man who has ever uttered the phrase, ‘I think I have too much money’, I have become used to the twisted faces of the people who were once humble. Strange to think, those in a less wealthy place would look at me with such demeaning distaste, fueled by the thought that chance (and not hard work) should have put them in the place of me. Well, I’m never inviting THESE people to my holiday mansion ever again.

‘Escape the Heat’

Under the scorching heat. Where to go, where to turn. The heat penetrates my very skin from every direction, the one layer I cannot shed. Where water has escaped into the sky, I cannot follow. As I walk the dry asphalt that seems to flake, thin crisps like feathers in convection dance around my red and blistering feet. Where am I trying to go? My clothes have long burned and my skin soon to follow as the first pop and smoke of my hair ignites in red flames. I turn to see my doom as the mushroom cloud rises.

‘Bitches’

A boy meets a girl. But the girl is a cat, a little feathery long light-grey haired critter. It looks at him with big jade green eyes and says, ‘dude, I thought you like bitches’. The boy looks at him, confused. Is love only reserved for humans? No, love is for everyone and everything! ‘I mean like bitches. Like. Dogs. Swag.’ The cat meows. ‘oh’, the boy says as he turns to see his dog beside him, keeping him company as always. ‘yeah what the hell man’ the dog barks.
