Autumn Gazebo

Guys like me don’t usually do things like this, but I’ve been up since three o’clock, sitting here in the dark, waiting for the brisk October sun to retake its position above the day’s forecasted clouds. A pumpkin spice candle flickers on the kitchen table—the wax puddles beneath its wick. The TV is on, butContinue reading “Autumn Gazebo”

Love at a Cemetery

It was the bone-chilling Northwest winter of 1994 when I stood with my shaky hands folded before Granddad’s grave. I stared at his name with a million things on my mind. His name was Shawn Black. Even during prayers with Mom, I didn’t close my eyes; I was always thinking, eyeing everyone else’s closed eyes,Continue reading “Love at a Cemetery”

Tables Turned

“Where have you been, young lady?” Mark said, folding the newspaper and adjusting his glasses. This was the third night in a row that Hannah was out with her shady friends. He’d talked about this a thousand times, but it never sunk in that Mark was looking out for her best interests. She thought heContinue reading “Tables Turned”

Rekindled Holiday Love

 The brisk December breeze carried with it flakes of the white kind. Sliding driving conditions gave me a ticket for reckless driving. Well, pardon me. The kitchen sink pipes froze ice to the led. I was good with my hands; at least that’s what she said. I kept her out of my head. That isContinue reading “Rekindled Holiday Love”

Lake Love

Macy whisked me with her soft, pale grip. I followed the footsteps of her hourglass frame to a salty lake. A nervous smile in her enchanting eyes sparkled a clever disguise. Hearing but alibis hid white lies over the wind, whipping waves into a frenzy. There and then, Macy strips to her — I’ve neverContinue reading “Lake Love”

Stop Slamming The Door (Please Stay)

Drizzle slapped rattled windows, and joyless smiles in cracked slanted frames collect memories of dust to a heart of distrust, rearranging rusty door hinges on a careless phrase—beyond that of a shout—tucked in your back pocket, let out when you left just like before. Faces of traces of indecision send chills the length of myContinue reading “Stop Slamming The Door (Please Stay)”

The Prenuptial Agreement

“I want a divorce,” I say. “Nice one.” Anna laughs and continues filing her fingernails. “No…I’m serious. I want a divorce.” “I can’t live without you,” Anna says. “And I can’t live with you,” I say. “It’s not you; it’s me.” “What’s gotten into you?”  “I’ve had it up to here,” I say. “I cheatedContinue reading “The Prenuptial Agreement”

Vicious Love

Emptiness crawls the length of my spine, spinning insecurity to knots. The redlight exchanges a sly glance for what’s better left unsaid in a house full of dread. A candle closes in for a winter wind, taking her six feet beneath a calendar page. A die casts an awkward summer-fall, beating to the drum toContinue reading “Vicious Love”

Winter Holiday

Snow had fallen to sheets of frightening, sliding driving conditions, wondering whether the Christmas tree lights would turn on at night. The pipes froze ice to the led. I read the words you said left on my side of the bed, and now red is what I see through a tall glass of blood-red wineContinue reading “Winter Holiday”

Mindy’s Secret

Mindy’s father hated me, especially when he found out we were more than friends. I couldn’t help that I fell in love with his daughter, and she couldn’t help that she fell head-over-heels for me. She was white, and I was half-black. Mindy’s father, Jim, said people should stick to their own race. Mindy andContinue reading “Mindy’s Secret”
