Why Should I Name it?

Why Should I name it?


I walked into the dim lighted room. The blood red cocktail hugged my curves. Giving the impression of an older appearance. I heard the pompous rich men talk about their mistresses to mask their failing businesses. The small taps my heels made against the expensive marble reminded me of me reasons of being here.

Stop, the chilly words whisked across my senses.

I always see him, when he’s a ‘him’. He takes on another face every night. Sometimes I am that face. Reminding me of the proud darkness I hold. Our eyes link. He drinks my gaze, making chills run down my spine. As he gets closer I see he takes on a strangers face. We never touch, at least not here.

He's wearing a jet black suit to match his pitch black eyes. We dance, not touching. The crowd turns its attention to us. They give us strange looks. We don't care in the least.

Panic attack hit. I feel the pain rake through my body giving me chilling reminder that I am real. I look up to the crowd wondering why no one seeks to help me. They have no faces, not that I complain, but their voices are what put fear into my body. They get louder, and more pronounced until everything becomes one. Sound become nothing, light brings the true darkness, and I see myself in his pitch black eyes.

We needn't no sound. I know where it ends. When this first occurred he was a small dot, and became bigger over time. Now he is towering over me tearing apart my soul with each second. I see his hand race, and almost break our silent rule of no touching. I wait for the contact, and he slashes through me in a clean cut. The black blood oozes with another reminder that I am, in fact, human.

I slip into a new darkness.

Beep, Beep, Beep

My simple alarm goes. No sweat, or fresh tears. I am used to these new 'dreams' or whatever you would like to call it. Didn't I tell you that I always break free? I came to a conclusion to the world I resign in.

We are of the Heavenly torture, and the pure Hell mixed into one being called a human to make this world we call a 'home'. The imperfect balance. How does imperfectness have a balance; that's just it, it will never be equal. Those types of things don't truly exist. We are the excess of Heaven and Hell. You don't believe in those things, you say? Well we are the fear in joy of everything. I was still too tired to join our primitive society, and slipped under my icy blankets.

I let the pitch black take me under its hold. I never touch, never speak, never hear but see....So why in the hell should I name it?

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves. I ...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

mcase: I really enjoyed this story. Felt drawn to Cami as a genuine person. Great characters with funny honest perspective. Many subplots made this continually interesting. I was never bored and thought the overall plot was intriguing. I do wish that some elements had been excluded, such as some extrane...
