Ash Man

You smell like an old book,

Like dust and chemicals and mold,

Do you not care of how you look?

So worn, so tired and cold.

You remind me of death and decay,

Stinking like a funeral home,

If I were to leave would you be in dismay?

For only side by side is where we have roamed.

I fear you may blow away if I dare let a breeze in,

As your ash is spreading about as you stand,

Tell me, would you even feel the gentle prick my pin?

If only better in life had I planned.

Worth everything and nothing at the same time,

Your life was up far before I can recall,

Perhaps we should leave and stop this crime,

To better us here in the wall,

After all, you smell like an old book,

And they’re bound to find you if they just look.

Sun and Moon: 'Something out there' is great. I love how you word their fear and his guilt, and how you give your details. The plot is a little ruff but it's still really good. I had trouble putting your book down as I wanted to finish it. You made it sound like this can happen in real life and that put chills...

Kristen: An incredible short story that grabs you at the start and takes you on a wild ride with twists and turns you won't see coming. I can't wait for book 2! If you're looking for something good to read click here!

JefBirk: It's very nice. Not bad. I just needed a little more horror to it. I like my stories with blood and guts. This is a nice read though, your characters are fun and the plot is very good. I will recommend it.

garmonswayn: Love that Willows story is really just beginning. Now Thomas and Max will follow. Awesome.
