The Grape Vine

“You heard they’re getting a divorce, didn’t you?”Scoffs. “Well, of course they are. She’s a harlot. It’s about time he came to his senses.”“Why, yes, but what I don’t understand is why he would marry the tramp in the first place.”“Don’t be naïve, Betty.

Once More For the Road

I did it again.A very long time ago, I promised myself that I would have nothing to do with you. I swore to every god in our overrated existence that I would never even mention your name.

Some, he feels, look like decent people. The others are scum. People he would never associate … Continue reading Bottomless

Not Really Sure

Hey! I'm terrible with intros. Man, this week sucked. I mean...it suuuuuuucked. But, today is Friday. Fridays are always good. I haven't really had the best time this week, but a really good friend of mine made sure I survived. She made sure that I was okay, that I was taken care of, and that … Continue reading Not Really Sure
