Windows When I was a child, no more than just seven years old I was frightened of my bedroom window. Other children were frightened of the monster in the closet or under the bed, in the basement, attic, what have you. Not me, I knew where the real monsters came in. They liked windows and they liked doors. Windows were good for seeing inside little boy’s bedrooms. They could be opened quietly so parents wouldn’t hear and of course little boys were always quiet as if hiding under their covers and closing their eyes and mouths tightly, hardly even able to breathe would keep the monsters away. I knew better but I kept quiet anyway. My monster came in through my bedroom door sometimes and watched me through the window. It laughed silently to it’s self when it caught a glimpse of me shivering in my bed one little eye looking o
The Burning Of Eliza CarfaxThere was an air of carnival as I made my way through the milling, soon to be spectators.A man sold roasted nuts from a wagon and an older woman, little faceless cloth dolls hanging from a stick. Children begged and their mothers and fathers gave in to them buying the awful things so the children could join in on the “fun”. Somewhere, off away from the actual burning there would be a small bonfire where the little ones could hold the dolls in the flames pretending to burn their very own witch, watched over by one of the church elders. There were other games for the children and gambling for the men while the women stood by gossiping. Eliza Carfax stood silently in stocks, the center of it all, no expression on her face, seeming as one of the dolls waiting to be hung from a stick and set to flame. The old tree in the center of town had mostly died off, just one of the many crimes Eliza had been convicted of. “I seen it with my very own eyes!”, said
That She May SeeI made the offer to my dead wife to use my eyesto see her grand children grow up. Now every timeI see something I probably shouldn't, every time Ilook to the darkness all I can think of is her eyeslooking back at me.They do not judge only seem sad at a broken promise.My mind is changed as is my heart. I wish only for herhappiness wherever she may be as I look once more tothe photos of our Grandchildren that she may see.
Dead At My FeetLeft standing in the aftermath of that battle within myself,blood and terror, total war of the soul stains the earthas fire licks razor cuts upon my fine ideals to smokethat stings my eyes and leaves a taste of burnt fleshupon my tongue. Gods and devils liedead at my feet.
Hell An' Damnation!It'd been hours since the funeral and wake of Pappa Joe, the oldest living family member and my Grandfather. I'd eaten more than my fair share, drank too much and told too many of the "colorful" stories I remembered the old man telling over the years and so when it came time to leave no one made even token attempt to get me to stay. Granma stayed behind. There were family members she only ever saw at funerals and weddings she'd explained. I'll catch a ride with........ she'd said but my mind was a blur from the booze and I'd wandered away and out the door without even hearing, or if I'd heard I didn't comprehend.Hell an' Damnation! I heard immediately upon entering my Granma's house. Hell an' Damnation! The familiar voice gave vent to all the frustration of a man who'd walked into his home only to find he no longer lived there. Hell an' Damnation I heard again as I stood transfixed unable to look away from the scene of Pappa Joe standing, his back to m
I Keep DreamingThe world shakesI see my face in the broken mirror.Facets of existence,a million different mes falling from my bed.The floor is hard and cold.I want so much to be warm.but I keep dreaming.
Troublemakers. Marauders x Reader〖 Remember when we used to be rascals? 〗“The Forbidden Forest? James, have you gone mad?!” [Name] nearly shrieked, trying not to catch the attention of other students. This was a bad idea. A very bad one. In fact, all the schemes that James (and Sirius) have thought are always up to no good. They would just get in trouble, get scolded by some Professors, and go to detention.“James, it's called the ‘Forbidden Forest’ for a reason. It's strictly forbidden.” Remus pointed out, putting down his latest new book on the side. [Name] nodded in agreement. At least there was a sane person in this group. But even with Remus' and [Name]'s protest, James still wanted to go to the Forbidden Forest. He didn't tell why, exactly. But he wanted to.“I think it would be fun,” Sirius finally had said. “don't you think so too, Peter?”The poor boy nervously fidgeted and nodded his head slowly. “Y-Yes.. Of cou

Owned (BTT x Geek!Reader)You sighed as you grabbed your books for the next 3 periods left at school. You carefully closed your locker and headed to class. Only to be greeted by the 'players' at your school. All vary tall. And pervy in the head. You didn't pay much attention to them. Which of course, gave them interest. You loved video games more then people. You were in the state of thinking about Amnesia when Francis, being the perv he is, smacked you butt making you blush a dark shade of red."Pervert.." You mumble as Toni winks at you and Gilbert laughs a bit. You glare and head to Social Studies, your favorite class. Social Studies was your favorite because well, All you have to do is memorize things, write it down, put it on some homework, and BAM! take a test. But that was all.Your Teacher Mr.J, got off topic and didn't really care about the rules. You could be in the middle of working on a paper and he'd start a conversation with everyone, have a rap battle, or a 'Yo Mama' face off.He high-fived you o
My Spider Wears a Tinfoil Hat Murder is wrong. Murder is usually, most entirely and for the most part extremely bad when it comes down to it. Shockingly enough, people thought murder was so wrong that they made laws about it. You can't murder people is what they say and they say that you can't harm animals either. That doesn't stop one from killing alien species. The alien in question was tall, black and had eight legs. Eight long, entirely gross and disgusting legs that scurried away into dark corners with its equally—if not more-so—ugly eyes. Spiders sucked and that is really the point of it all. There are a lot of options on what one can do when they spot one of these alien creatures. Scream is always the first option whether one likes it or not. The louder and higher the scream depends on where one happens to find the spider. If it's on the floor about fifty or so feet away, a quick “ah” is sufficient. However, if you find the s
