History is torn​ by fog

Youth was full of fun and games The road a path my small hands made, The clock spins and time moves on Days of fun now beginning​ to fade. With each step across this crumbling bridge I fear I will slip, Falling through my mind’s maze Wondering what caused the trip. Sky is fogged and…

A relationship status

The toothbrush stage. “Is it time?” He asks, staring down the cup holding her toothbrush and a half used squished bottle of toothpaste. “I think so,” she whispers. She shakes the cup, leaving a little more room to one side. “Here I go,” he says, carefully placing his freshly bought toothbrush next to hers. “It…

A real understanding of student life

“It is so cold,” Sam says, shivering under the three duvets layered on top of them. “I know,” Chloe replies. “That is it!” Rose screams, emerging from the duvet fortress and into the sub zero temperatures of the lounge. “I’m turning the heating on!” “No!” The other two scream in unison. “Just this once!” Rose…

A puppy’s insatiable​ fur

“HUMAN!” He screams, tail wagging energetically. “Not now,” you huff. “PET ME” He demands. “In a minute,” you say. “NOW” He yips, jumping up and down until your world is blurred into a blend of white and orange fur. “No,” you sternly reply. “YES!” He says, large eyes demanding to be adored.

Brutal seagulls​ at the beach

“Be careful with that,” she whispers, handing the two ice creams over. “What?” The tourist asks. “The birds are bad here,” she responds.  The man laughs, mocking the girl’s concern. A few minutes later a yell can be heard, the girl leans over the counter and sighs at the sight. Five seagulls circle the couple,…

A woman being watched at a bar

Sam felt strange, blushing slightly she took a gulp of her wine, the punch stinging her lungs and waking her up from her dazed state. Someone was watching her, the stare was pinching at her skin, smothering her until she felt sticky. She surveyed the bar, the afternoon crowd had been replaced with a younger…
