Luke’s mouth was burning.
He closed his eyes and pressed his palms against his eyes, relishing in the cold darkness for a moment as he leaned his forearms on the steering wheel. Everything felt dark and gloomy. The liquor store was ringing again, and Luke didn’t have the willpower to put it on hold.
With a deep sigh of guilt, he started up his car, the rickety old vehicle churning to life, headl...
“No way no how I am not going up there!” I said pointing at the stage where a middle aged woman was singing ‘You Don't Own Me’ by Lesley Gore and not well I might add.
“Come on Sare Bear we need a Baby Spice.” Hallie said.
“And you love singing.” said Tracy.
“Yeah in the shower or in the car along with the Radio but not like in front of people!” I protested.
“Oh come on Sarah you have a really go...

It is too quiet. The birds should be singing by now, the insects buzzing. The sun is already pretty high in the sky, the light finding it’s way though the leaves of my small hide-out. It is just big enough for me to be here, laying flat, but not for me to sit up or move around much. I made it the first day, making sure it b...
Our legislated bodies keeps us running for our lives
Outlawed from the beginning, perpetually hunted by the whims of men
Values only placed on them, not our contribution to the expansion of humanity’s fate
Your names never ours imbued you an unspoken right to use your rage, rape, misogyny as intimidation tools

“For you to kill me?” he responded, the edge of the blade hard against his Adam’s Apple.
Ciel leaned in gently lifting Kraai’s head up, every muscle tensing in her arm.
“I am guessing you have never taken a life before”, he nearly spat through gritted teeth.
Ciel sliced his neck and blood poured immediately, s...
