My compass was broken. I was lost.
I didn’t panic at first.
Then the cold, hard reality hit me in the gut. I felt my heart race, my breath quickened. I started to run. Briars scratched my arms and face and tore through my clothes. I didn’t care, I was too numb.
My run slowed to a jog and I grabbed my side, and screamed. Everything hurt.
“Oh shit! Oh shit!” He screamed into his iphone, “She’s not due ’till next month!!”
I casually watched as the man who’s name may or may not be Daniel ran from Starbucks to his car. He was 23, with a wife named Sarah and an nice ordinary life. If he had lived passed today, he would have watched his son grow up, and the son’s name would have been Isaiah.
Unfortunately, he won’t live pass today. Some truck driver (who’s name may or may not be Seth) will spill hot tea on his lap and crash into Daniel’s car. Daniel will die, and I will collect his soul.
It is how it is. Being Death.
October 12th 2011 was the day the doctor told me my wife was dying.
Well shit, I thought.
My wife and I never liked each other. Our relationship was mutual. Separate rooms, separate sides of the house. God knows why were married. God knows why we stayed together.
The entrance was cold, broken. It wasn’t the kind of entrance you’d walk in without thought, nope…not those. It’s the kind you’d walk in with fear and hesitation at what is behind that entrance. Reality was off a bit.
I am not in the zone.
I am in a half empty glass and am too lazy to look at it as half full.
I am staring at a blank screen wondering why am I so bored.
I stood by the balcony, counting my losses. Job. Life. Any chance of a relationship. Family. Purpose. All while I edged closer and closer to the edge, cars zoomed by 8 stories down.
Tears streamed down my face, […]
I really needed to make a statement in this world, otherwise, I’m just another human being.

“Dave!!! Dave where are the freakin’ instructions!?” I screamed
The microwave wouldn’t turn off, and it’s an autolock that stays locked when something is cooking. I had accidentally left my spoon in my tea-cup […]
It seemed to be a nice enough company. Roy was in charge of hiring models. They were NOT a nice enough company, and Roy was in charge of hiring victims.
Models were a cover-up.

Slipping silently into the bushes, I made a mental head count.
Okay, 2 guys in a tower. 4 on patrol.
I can do this.
I waited until all the patrol guards were out of sight when I zoomed towards the gate.
One of […]
My eyesight went fuzzy a few times while I lay on the stretcher.
I couldn’t move.
I saw blood, lots of it. Was it mine?
I couldn’t feel anything, I felt numb.
I just kept thinking about the terrible, terrible […]
Sighing, I took down the old and completely worn Christmas decorations that have been proudly shown on my grandmother’s porch for 40 years. One of my favorites, a china doll Santa Claus had so much wear and tear, […]
I raced to the cupboard, trying not to have a panic attack.
“Where are the freaking bandages???” I screamed

Reading this right now, you’re not safe. No one is safe, they just don’t know it yet. Oh, but they will, they’ll find out pretty soon. It all started with an innocent search online, I was searching for writing […]
I stood on the rail road tracks. I think I was in some sort of dream. I could see a train coming up ahead. It’s whistle blowing every few seconds, getting closer by the minute. I was overcome by insane fear.
Man (As in ’sup man?)
The back end of the broken train hurtled down the hill, making me seriously motion sick.
“Hooolllldddd OOONNNN!” The conductor screamed.
Every single passenger was at risk, the train was going the wrong way. […]
