None of which are exciting, scandalous, or even the least bit blissful, but all of which are rather inwardly illuminating, to say the very least. I am scared; of you, of myself, of life, of death, of the warts that speckle a toads cranium. Alt ... Continue Reading

He was riding along the tail of his father's sadness and soon it would whip out and fling him off with a loud snap. Julian's hands were at his sides.
