Perennial Loop

I caught hold of her inside my hands, bloodied, yet still pumping wearily with life, the transient moment where I might lose her. She was draining away into the dead, the stone cold ground was the last place she would land unto her death. I held the paroxysm of grief in me, shouting words inContinue reading “Perennial Loop”

Chained Parapet #Finale

  “This is bad. Should we end this experiment now?” I flushed my way through the monks, against the ranks of their fortified formation, I charged with the flow of the situation wanted me to go. There was no bridge below my feet, just the chained parapet dangling over the ferocious sea. Floating, hovering, IContinue reading “Chained Parapet #Finale”

Chained Parapet #11

DANGER! KEEP OUT! the sign was the first thing that came into my sight. “Screw this.” I uttered under my breath, “I’m done with these shit.” I picked up the belongings that I had left there, running to the chained parapet that led me in the first place. As my pace was crescendo, the unfaltering bunchContinue reading “Chained Parapet #11”

Centurian’s Drop

The eclipse settled upon the radiant sun, it was the Centurian’s Drop, a darkness that would envelope Earth for ten whole seconds, where no light, no sound would ever escape, except for the jangle of the ephemeral. I was standing beside him in the concrete jungle of New Jersey, sighting the magnificent view of theContinue reading “Centurian’s Drop”

Chained Parapet #10

The old grandfather clock stood singularly in the dusty, sombre room. “Hello. Human. Glad to meet you again.” it said in a computerised voice. I laid against the concrete wall. my knees were jerking uncontrollably, contorting in a way or another. “Afraid not. Jeckell and Hyde are my underlings, they have received my gift.” whatContinue reading “Chained Parapet #10”

Chained Parapet #5

Darkness did not conquer the sky, it was clear as if the day had just started in this continent. I jogged through a dense forest, it was uncanny, the silence that was emitted in the forest. My pace did not drop, I ran faster, somebody is on me, I sense danger, accelerated through the forest. Hum… Hum… thereContinue reading “Chained Parapet #5”

Chained Parapet #4

Twice the shock, it was no small deal for a boy at post-toddler age. I picked myself up, tiny strides and the sweltering weather, for a few hours, I made it to the nearest house. “John! You poor thing…” Aunt Suzanne ran to me, and I blacked out as I knew I was in safeContinue reading “Chained Parapet #4”

Chained Parapet #3

There was a wooden sign standing at the end of the bridge, DANGER! KEEP OUT!, clarifying the propensity of getting ourselves in deep soot. We moved from the wooden bridge to mired grounds, our feet started to sink, we ran across, Dave pulled me through as if he knew where the spots that would not drown us inContinue reading “Chained Parapet #3”

Chained Parapet #2

I was young, of toddler age, but could sprint as fast as a young lad would. My brother was hiding in the bushes behind the yard, we were playing hide-and-seek, I was the seeker, and he was to hide. We frolicked as we found each other. The cycle was repeated, we were energy-filled little monsters,Continue reading “Chained Parapet #2”
