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”

Jealousy

She loses her cool as if a rock tossed at a glass house,breaking through the tension of napalm skies,coming like a villain,staying like a lifesaver in the hills of California.Smoke billows through her flared nostrils.Embers hover under her eyeliner.When she slips through the door, calmness cascades in waves of dopamine, resting on the hillside.

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”

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”

On Second Thought, I Want a Prenup

Witnesses gathered as an audience around the pews, looking at the bride and groom–donned in the radiance of their gloom. Doom sets in the brisk October moonlight, traveling among the cumbersome graveyard of future divorce lawyers. (© 2021 AC) (Wattpad, Amazon Kindle.)

Buried Alive

Shannon hated her mother. I didn’t care for the woman either, but I had no reason to see her dead, at least not at first. But Shannon, Shannon wanted the bitch dead as fuck. I couldn’t reconcile the sweet, long blonde-haired churchgoing girl with the vicious, spoiled brat. But here she was, and here IContinue reading “Buried Alive”

Let’s Go With, Lexy

Natalie looked down and away as tears streamed from her cheek to her jacket, resting on her tight blue jeans.“I’m sorry I lost the–““I’m not worried about–““That’s what I thought. You didn’t even want the baby.” Natalie held her head in her hands, letting out the tears that trickled through her voice.“I wanted the babyContinue reading “Let’s Go With, Lexy”

The Uber Date – Kindle Edition

Where is she? I glanced at my watch. She should be here by now. I folded my arms across my chest. It’s too cold to be waiting for an Uber. The December air whipped through my jacket and numbed my fingers. My first date in ten years, and I was going to be late. Screw myContinue reading “The Uber Date – Kindle Edition”
