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?

crystalholes: This is a great book, I've read several on here that I've literally had to grind my teeth just to get through. This was engaging, witty, and smart. No grammar problems plaguing so many of the pieces on this app. Definitely publish-worthy.

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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.

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 ...

Deleted User: As a teacher/scholar of British literature, there's nothing I like more than a well-informed tale of historical fiction, particularly one dealing with the murky events around Elizabethan England. Black Dog is full of gritty, well-chosen details that make the period come to life, and a plot that ...

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!

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

alisonward: If you like the paranormal then you should read this! Easy to read with a great story line and the characters are likeable. A few grammatical errors which made me have to reread a few sentences but could be forgiven as they were minor..I will be keeping an eye out for the next book.
