Honey

I never wanted someone so bad. You looked at me, my insides started to disintegrate. My skin came alive, started to buzz, hum. Your kisses set all of me on fire. Our hands, mouths were everywhere; touching, pulling, tearing, tasting. You writhed under my skin. Our passion set the world alight. Then they came; put…

Shame

vodka haze, too much music, head pounding, blood pumping you dance, close your eyes, sway your body to the beat vodka and coke clutched in one hand, raise your glass to everybody / nobody swallow the lot in one gulp he starts to dance with you, feel his body move against you, voice whispers filth…

Such Sweet Sorrow

Her: I still love you. That makes everything harder. I love you but don’t want to be with you. How can such a thing be? We’ve always been complicated. I love you, not with the passion of a wife/lover, but like someone loves an old friend / beloved pet. I don’t mean to be cruel….

The Cruellest Month

Juliet felt the baby in her stomach kick just as she was opening her eyes. She lay in the dark for a few minutes, resting her hand on her stomach and feeling her baby shift inside her. Her eyes were filled with tears which started to run down her cheeks by the time she finally…

My Little Eye

One look is all it can take to tear your world apart, shred all you know to pieces and make the ground beneath you shake. I saw you with him. You had no idea I was even there, too wrapped up in his fudge eyes, lost in that too-sexy smile. From a distance, you looked…

Cleaning House

‘Huh!’ he said. ‘I never would have thought that would fit in there’. Wiping sweat out of his eyes, he continued to hold the tatty old holdall open with one hand while cramming Julie’s severed right leg inside with his other hand. Blood sprayed his face as he worked and he continuously had to wipe…

Empty Places

Leaving does not mean you never loved me. I know our love was fierce once. I know it in my heart. There was a time, too long ago, when we couldn’t get enough of each other, when we spent days in bed, lost in the smell and honey-taste of each other. Your name used to…

Dark Little Things

1 Kids had avoided the old house since Nate Turner killed his whole family with a shotgun and hung himself. It had become a place of legend, fear and superstition. You had to hurry past, as quickly as possible with both eyes closed or. Or what? Or bad things would happen. Nate Turner would chase…

500 Words A Day For 31 Days, Hell Yeah

So today is the first day of a New Year. I am determined to make 2018 a whole lot better than 2017. I have decided to undertake a different writing challenge each month. I will also be planning and writing a novel as well as working on a poetry collection. I need to do this….

The Naughty Drawer

When did I stop being enough for you in bed? I thought we had a healthy sex life, not every day, but a few times a week, nothing to fancy but satisfying enough. How do you think I felt when I opened the bottom drawer and found all that stuff – handcuffs, flavoured condoms, fishnet…

A Slip Of The Tongue

You can’t talk your way out of this one. I know I haven’t been the best husband. I’ve not always told you how I feel, spend more time with my mates than you, forget stupid anniversaries like our first date or the first time we had a meal together. None of that makes me a…

What’s Left Of Me

You fell out of love long before our bed turned cold. For years I pretended not to notice; all the late nights, whispered phone calls, love bites, late night text messages, credit card bills for cheap hotels, gifts that never found their way to me, phone numbers hidden in your pockets, lipstick smears on your…
