by Harmony Kent
GENRE: Short Stories/Poetry
Take a moment to delve into tales from the dark side, have fun with fantasy, dabble in dystopia, and court danger in a little science fiction.
These tales touch upon death, grieving, war, fresh starts, hope, courage, change, choices, and encouragement.
And then, after all that, you’ll find the poems.
From the lonely echoes of an empty house to the soaring heights of unexpected love and joy and learning to live as free as clouds and water.
For each of us, a moment encompasses a lifetime and, yet, passes in but the blink of an eye. In but a moment, everything can change. And in this very moment, life beckons in all its potentiality.
When the shadows fall, what will you do?
The pounding in my skull wakes me. I rather wish it hadn’t. Not much, at least that I can think of, can be worse after a night of over-indulging than waking up next to a stranger.
Unable to recall his name.
Or how we met.
And—perhaps, most important of all
—why he’s dead.
That realisation snaps me out of my hung-over fog. With a groan, I roll onto my side and push myself upright. Once I have my feet on the floor, I prop my elbows on my knees and cradle my head in my hands. Please, please, please tell me that I didn’t do it again.
Is it too much to ask for a normal life? A normal relationship? A normal lifespan?
I pray, dear reader, that you’re not a Twenty-Niner. That your birthday doesn’t fall on the 29th of February. That you don’t age four times slower than everyone else. Or suck the life out of other folks to do it.
