A dark story about a woman's battle and life with depression. Warning: thoughts of suicide are expressed.
I was good. I did everything right. I helped others, I spoke up for those without a voice, and yet, I’m in this deep dark pit. This unescapable black abyss.
George and Abraham
Was his country beyond repair? Were he and his fellow revolutionaries’ dreams of a country free of tyranny too radical and unachievable? He didn’t believe so at first, but 200 years of hindsight alters a man's perspective.
My Own Worst Enemy
I can never seem to outrun or escape him. No matter where I go, or where I hide, whenever I look over my shoulder, he’s always there. He mirrors my actions and mocks my words. I once believed my only escape was to run further and faster, but it doesn’t make a difference; he always catches up.
Captain Henry Pierce
Captain Henry Pierce shivered as he inched closer to the small fire. He sighed and grabbed another stick from the small pile beside him and tossed it into the flames. It coughed up embers as the new branch crushed the ones below. The sun was beginning to set below the dunes and the temperature was dropping fast. Henry removed his helmet and ran his fingers through his mangled mess of brown hair. He needed one last look.
The Friend Zone
You unlock this door with the key of desperation. Beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sadness. A dimension of loneliness. A dimension of emptiness. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance of heartbreak and neglect. You’ve just crossed into... The Friend Zone.
Seize the Day
Although he was apprehensive to jump into another relationship, something told him he needed to take this leap of faith. He needed to gather his rosebuds while ye may and seize this day.
