Roses Every Year, part 2

| Part 1 |

Dear J,

I’m leaving. I don’t want to, but I have to.

I trusted you beyond all others. I believed you would never hurt me and I believed that you would always protect me. You didn’t.

I was yours, from the moment we met.


Dear J,

I’ve met somebody new. He’s good to me, I promise. You don’t have to worry.

I hope you can be happy for me. You’re my best friend.


Dear J,

You were right. It seems I chose wrong.

I know you want us to be together but I can’t be with you. But I’m glad to have you.

I hope you’re alright.


Dear M,

I still can’t believe you’re gone.

I’m sorry that I wasn’t with you and I’m sorry that I was too stupid to let you go.

I hope you’re happy now and I want you to know that I remember what you said a long time ago.

Love always,



Descent Into Madness, part 1

I woke up late, as usual.

My mother used to berate me about it, telling me that the animals would be gone by the time I went hunting. I told her she was crazy, animals were everywhere in the forest. It didn’t matter what time you got up, I could always get enough food for both of us.

I was wrong though. Food became scarce.

He usurped the throne, took over the kingdom and taxed the people. He and his knights hunted for sport, slaughtering animals left and right until their population dwindled considerably, leaving almost nothing for the rest of us. He killed her.Read More »

The Mad King, part 1

Once upon a time, there was a young but powerful king who sought to take over all the kingdoms around his own. He was bloodthirsty but fair and while people respected him, they also feared him.

He was successful in taking over most of the kingdoms except for one. This kingdom was ruled by an old crone, rumored to be a cunning, vengeful witch. The king would never admit it but he feared this woman. He delayed his attack on this particular kingdom, telling himself that he didn’t need another kingdom as he had amassed enough.

On the king’s 28th birthday, he grew restless and his desire for power overtook his fear. He decided to attack the crone’s kingdom at night, with five of his most loyal knights with him.

They invaded the enormous castle, slashing and hacking their way through the crone’s guards. The king reached the throne room alone where he found the crone waiting for him.Read More »


Heat spreads all over my skin
Biting my lips, reeling it in
Dazed and confused, wondering why this is
When all I can think about is asking for your kiss

Heat pools in my core
I’m looking at you and wanting more
I’d beg for you without hesitation
Butterflies in my stomach, tingling with anticipation

I want without end, more than anyone can imagine
I feel intense desire, my patience is wearing thin
I long for your touch, here I am holding my breath
It’s you and me against the world from the moment that we met

I hear you whisper in my ear, voice soothing and deep
These memories we’re making are all for us to keep
You see me and your eyes light up, I feel my knees shaking
You smirk at me and you know exactly what I’m thinking

It’s a different kind of love, what I’m feeling every day
It’s too bad that you can’t hear all the things I want to say
I wish you felt for me just what I feel for you
For now, I guess I can pretend that you want me too


I know it’s not real
But I like to pretend
‘Cause it’s the only way I can feel
Your heat upon my skin

I know it’s strange
For me to feel this way
But if you could hear me
I’d always ask you to stay

You don’t know who I am
And I hardly even know you
But sometimes I’d like to think
That the world is just us two

I’d follow the path you take
No questions asked at all
And if you decide to jump
I’d join you when you fall

I can’t look you in the eyes
I’m blushing all over
But when you smile at me
You blow all of my covers

Sometimes I wish he was you
With the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen
But this is all just a fantasy
Today, real life begins.

Roses Every Year, part 1

Dear J,

I can’t ever say I’m a good girl but someone up there must think I deserve something good. That’s the only way I can explain how lucky I am to have met you.

After all the shit I’ve done and all the shit I’ve slogged through, I found you. You make me feel safe, you make me feel important, you make me feel loved.

That’s all I’ve ever wanted, really. To be loved.


Dear J,

In just a few hours, I’ll be yours, like you always said you wanted me to be. My heart whispers your name and I know you can hear me call for you.

We’ve been together for only a short time but I know I’m making the right decision with you. I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine.

You’re my star.


Dear J,

I don’t understand.

Why do you hurt me? Don’t you trust me?

I love you and only you. No man could mean more to me than you. This is just something that I like to do — that I have to do. Please understand.
