Love after Miscarriage

Love after Miscarriage By K.L.Newton    It hurts. I’ve been bleeding for three weeks now. When will it end? Why did this happen to me? To us? I glance over at my husband, David, and the guilt crashes into me again. The sobs rack my body all over again, and he reaches for me. Sorrow in his eyes. I pull away, unable to be held by the man who I let down....

The Not So Perfect Date

“Ughh, how long is this class going to last?” I asked myself as I started daydreaming about what my date with Mikey might be like. “I’m so excited to finally get out of the house after being grounded for 2 months. Ooh, I wonder where he’s going to take me” I thought as I started beaming, “what should I wear?”  An hour later, the class is finally ending, “RINGGG!” cried the lunch bell and I couldn’t be more excite...

Selective Emory

Emory Parker arrived at the Forked River service plaza off exit 76 on the Garden State Parkway at two o’clock on a summer midweek afternoon when the temperature was high and her expectations even higher.            Although a business meeting at a parkway rest stop was one of the least conventional things to which the attractive graphic artist had ever agreed, her acceptance gave her an earnest sense of optimism, both about her personal life and her career. Perhaps th...

My Older, Estranged Reflection

Today’s sunset is so cloudless and nostalgic, when it disappears I fear it will take a piece of me with it that is drenched in her memory. I feel out of sorts sitting here on the veranda without her. She should be sitting beside me right now and asking me to read from the holy book the scripture that her pastor was preaching on Sunday. She would complain how hot the weather is, but still find her sipping on piping hot te...

Mildred and the Sea Lovers

Mildred and The Sea Lovers Once, there was a poor starving artist named Mildred Armstrong. She was a mid-thirties female, somewhat attractive, but really down on her luck.  The previous week she had been kicked out of her loft and now lived on the beach in a cave.  Mildred fished for her food and drank the water from a nearby spring. She didn’t own very much having sold everything to pay ...

I Remember.

I remember this place like the back of my hand.I remember the treehouse in the woods at the back of my house. I’d climb the trees with her, and we’d just read and enjoy each other’s company. One time, I was down about a test in school that I’d failed. She made sock puppets and put on a show until I smiled. She made up silly little songs and storylines. She didn’t stop until I was crying of laughter.I remember the school playground where we met and grew up together. We’d always run out to the playground ...

Red Oak

Hamza lifted the hoe and brought it down with force. The earth gave away under his strong blows and soon he had a big hole. Hamza stood up and wiped his forehead. The day was at its peak and the clear skies did nothing but help make it hotter. Walking to a shed at the side of the yard, Hamza saw a baby tree. Quickening his steps Hamza looked around. He needed to talk to Ray about the type of tree he was going to plant bu...

Race Against Time

RACE AGAINST TIME "I just can't afford to end the year without completing this goal. Grandma has to receive her gift before she leaves us. Why did I delay in getting my single recorded?" Those were the many thoughts that clouded my mind when I received that phone call; Grandma had but a few hours to live. When I received the news, I cried my eyes ...

RESTART

We hear a voice, although it's not clear where it is coming from. Our eyes open and reveal a spotless and sparse room with only the essential pieces of furniture. Everything in the room is coaxed in a white plastic laminate. There's a a young girl, around 16 or 17, laying with her belly against the bed and her heels kicking her butt. "Are you coming tonight?" We can finally hear that it's Brandon and he...

His Last Wishes

A familiar madness stirred within. He tried to suffocate it using his starving eyes to search the room for distraction, for solace. The space had drastically expanded it’s aura of empty material weight. Out cycled a heavy sigh and he went back to crumpling up the sheets where the ink left unpleasant splotches. The kinds of decisions that were about to be made intimidated him perhaps more than death itself. Even wasting paper had given him an unfamiliar guilt because of the outrageous costs nowadays, t...

Shady's Shadow

Mrs. Sherwood assigned our class to write a romantic poem regarding anything we see on campus. As she let class out for us to look around, pondering what we’d want to write about - I already had my subject in mind. I fumbled down the crowded university hallways, trying to maneuver my slight stature through the flocks of students fervently racing to their classes, tutor sessions, meetings, or whatever occurrence had them in such a hurry. Inhaling one giant breath, I pushed open the east end doorway, closing my eyes while doing so.

Ceaseless Cycle

Red. Red like blood. Blood red. Dripping down the walls, spinning, spinning, never stop spinning. She grabs her cheeks and holds them hostage in her bloody fingers; her nails sliding down like blades. She screams gleefully, laughs, and slaps her legs raw. Her cheeks now have blood marks on them. Fire. Covered in the fire. Red, bloody fire. Blood vessels burst open in her legs and blood rushes to the surface of her pale skin.  “What a great friend!” she ...

The Outpost

I’ve been alone for 30 years now. Well—30 years here, about three months in Earth-time. This crimson planet travels around its sun at a mind-boggling speed—3 days to make a trip around the sun as opposed to 365—but just like on Earth, you don’t even realize you’re moving. You can really only tell by the position of the sun, or the gradual movement of the stars in the night sky. I never really thought about how my home wa...

Gila Bend

The clock on the dash read two a.m. and Christmas music had been the only thing on the radio since Denton Kline left his sister’s place in Gila Bend. He reached over and shut it off, hoping to get a grip on his thoughts and maybe… just maybe the voices in his head would shut up.   Why the hell did he even think of surprising his older sister by driving all the way to Arizona dressed as Santa? He shook his head and pounded on the steering wheel. Ardell left home when Denton was fourteen. She moved to a commune way the hel...

An opportune moment

Slamming my laptop closed, I ignored the cries of my stomach and flopped on the bed.Why is it so hard to find a job? or better question, why can't I find a job? Closing my eyes I lay in wait for the dark wisps of slumber to ...

To Puerto Rico And Time

She had never felt so stupid in her 5 years career.In a jiffy, her bags were ready."I'm so sorry I'm late." Anna Stevens said over the phone, running out of her condo in her dove-gray slender gown, her black hair flapping in the air behind. "I'm on my way. Give me thirty minutes."
