Blue.  Yes, blue, the color.  It’s all I see.  It’s all I’ve been seeing for God knows how long, and it started the day he hit me with that shovel. It wasn’t an ordinary shovel.  It was his shovel.  It had been his daddy’s shovel & before that it was his grandaddy’s shovel.  Grandaddy made Read More

No Refunds, No Returns

“It’s just one of those things,” he said. “One of what things?” “Ya know… Well… never mind, I guess I just don’t know what I want,” he said. “Well you can’t keep them all.” “I know, but I can’t make up my mind,” he said. I just shook my head.  In my mind, I couldn’t Read More

The Wall

It was three years ago that she came into my life. She was the best lay I ever had, bar none.  That woman would do things to me and make me feel more like a man than anyone else ever had.  The things she did with her mouth…man alive, no wonder I dealt with her Read More

20 Degrees

“Twenty degrees,” she thought as the goose bumps rose on her arms. She walked over to the thermostat to confirm the temperature. The little needle on the dial rested on the number 80.  Outside the sun was shining brightly, the birds were singing, and the children were playing kickball in shorts.  Some of the kids Read More

Freshly Fallen

It wasn’t the sight of it that bothers her, it is the sound.  That initial crunch then the squishing as the spear goes through their brains and blood starts gushing out is what turns her stomach.  It’s the sound that has her on the brink of tears each time she kills one.  Of course, there was Read More

1: The Entryway (The House)

He’d confessed everything that late October night before walking out for good.  Now here it was April already, and this woman had arrived at the very same door he had walked out. Dressed to the nine’s in her designer high heels, pencil skirt, and fashionable pink, sleeveless top, I had to wonder if perhaps she had just Read More

2: The Bedroom (The House)

It took nearly 2 weeks to move all of her belongings into the house.  I thought it would never end. Everything had a place and everything had to be handled with the utmost care.  At least that is one thing I like about her. But right now, right this moment, I despise her. Peeking through Read More

3: Conversations (The House)

There are little things that are really confusing me lately.  I hear her talking to herself, but more and more it seems like she is talking to someone else.  It is as if she has conversations with someone: asking questions, giggling at times.  Some days she seems so happy, and others she has a touch Read More

4: The Porch (The House)

Sitting here on the porch watching her in the garden is the best entertainment I’ve had in months.  What is she doing out there?  It’s more than obvious that her hands have never touched dirt let alone the soil of the land.  I must say, each time she reaches to wipe the sweat from her Read More

5: Discovery (The House)

“JOHN!!!” The scream woke me, but was that my voice…or hers? “JOHN!! NO! JOHN!! Oh My God!!” Hers. As I run downstairs to see what the bitch is screaming about, 100 things pass through my thoughts.  But mostly, why is she calling THAT name? The name of my dead, cheating husband? I can feel the Read More
