Bedroom

I love my bedroom.

It’s a nice and roomy place.

I mean, this is where I hide away

When there are problems to face,


And it’s funny because I never leave.


It’s not that I want to leave;

I love it here.

It just took me a while to realize

The truth behind what I really fear.


Loneliness.


Loneliness feels like you’re trapped

In your own private world.

Except there’s no heaven there,

And God is barely a word.


Maybe He just doesn’t want to help me.


They say God is always present;

That He’s always with you, even if you don’t need him

But if that is so,

Why can I only hear my own breathing?


I think He’s mocking me.


He’s watching me inhale and exhale;

Maybe he’s planning my inevitable doom.

I’m holding my breath-

Wait-

Why can I still hear breathing in my bedroom?


Now I'm wishing for loneliness again.

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied!
