Flash Poetry: Loyalty
Sometimes Loyalty Really takes it out of me Because "loyalty" Really means "sacrifice." It doesn't mean "here when you Need me" It now means "here, take all of me" Or taking without asking Because "you'll always be here, Right?" And now being loyal comes at a price...
Single Sentence Flash Fiction: “Flowery”
She made me smell flowery as I hacked her to bits; for all its valiant effort, Glade White Tea & Lily spray a pepper spray does not make. Happy Spookytober!

Single Serve Flash Fiction: Poetry. “Missing.”
A bit of poetry today. "Missing" Today, I find myself missing. People. Ideas. Things. I miss having the capacity to think of myself. I miss having little to take care of.
