The head lights would cut into the night like a rapier and the defining silence would be shattered by the screaming of horsepower beneath the hood and the booming of Devildriver’s-”I Dreamed I Died” over the vehicles system. I could barely hold my eye’s open, the nightmares lately were to almost to much.

Deja Vu - Through the corner of my eye, a car surged to a halt at the blinking red light. The breeze collided with my face, what a good feeling it was, cooling my warm skin.

A bucket sits underneath the sink, a metal desk is soldered onto the floor, a bed is fixed to the wall - all human needs are accounted for. A dusty Bible is slightly visible under the bed. On the desk are some pencils, a tabloid newspaper, a transistor radio that does not work, some blank pieces of paper and a small crucifix. All the objects are smothered in dust. A young man, about twenty-seven years old, sits on a metal chair (which is attached to the floor), leaning on the desk with his elbows....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 550 words

Shadows In The Rain - It was was very late, shadow cast and misty as the rain was coming down in alight steady drizzle.

Turning of the Tides - "How dare you accuse me of such a thing. Why, I can't even think of doing anything so horrid let alone act upon such thoughts!" I knew she was lying. She had this trademark way of stuttering on the ends of her sentences when she lied as if she were reviewing in her mind what had just been said to make sure she was being consistent. I caught it though. I catch it every time. I eased into my questioning: "Then where were you last night?" "You know damn well I was with Kathy the entire evening.

The Vampire Strikes - The shadows on the walls of the dank corridors appeared to move into strange contortions in the flickering torchlight. Slowly but purposefully the cloaked man moves through the avenue of suits of armour. It is almost as though he is hunting something as he stalks down the corridors, like a wild animal on the prowl. He is tall, almost unnaturally so and his face is startlingly white. He is dressed all in black, apart from the lining of his cloak, which is a deep blood red....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 574 words

The Forbidding House - It was a cold winter's night. The wind was whistling through the bare branches of the trees. The dead leaves were dancing noisily across pavements and all was still. That night I was walking down Old St.Paul's Road when the clouds started to build. I looked around as I huddled under a large, dead oak tree. I had noticed that almost all of the houses on this abandoned street were too badly damaged for us to take shelter in, except for one. Lightning split the night sky without a sound, illuminating the skeletal trees outside....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1012 words

The Beast Within - The Beast Within The spawn knelt in the shadows of the corner. His iridescent eyes searching the dark for his prey. A prey he knew very well, almost too well. From the end of the stone corridor the spawn's ear picked out a single disturbance. From behind the mask a man's mouth twisted in a smile and a thought of satisfaction crossed his mind. Rising to his feet the spawn walked defiantly down the corridor. His armoured boots making no sound on the cold floor. A heart that beat no blood, pounded within the unnatural armour of the spawn....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 629 words

Gals vs. Women - Gals vs. Women This article is about gals. It's not an article about women. There are way too many books about women, and most of them are way too serious. Women itself is a serious word, not to mention womanhood and womanly. While being female is a serious activity, there is a lighter side which is rarely examined or written about. But women tend to attach too much significance to womanhood. This results in certain characteristically feminine, by which I mean over exaggerated self-important, behavioral patterns that can produce unfortunate results....   [tags: Creative Writing Journalism Essays]

The Time Traveler - The Time Traveler If you think about it, it's kind of funny for an atheist to have the power of God. It's also funny that I'm one sentence into this narrative, and I'm already way ahead of myself.

The Cold Embrace - The Cold Embrace The night in the city was going to be especially cold tonight. The sky had been overcast for almost the entire day, leading to a brief although torrential downpour in the mid-afternoon. The streets of the Bronx outside the third-story apartment window that Leonard Jefferson Bennings now looked out were saturated from the July rainstorm and shone with a glimmer he remembered seeing from his bedroom window in Massachusetts many years ago. He wondered if he would ever get to see his childhood home again, and, if he did, would the world of his youth still exist even there....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 6514 words

I usually closed the auto parts store at 5:30 and stayed doing paperwork for another hour or so, but not on Fridays. Fridays were the finish line of a usually marathon week of complaining customers and dissatisfied employees. At 5:31, the place would be empty, dark, and eager for an echo. The old man knew this ritual, and when he came on Fridays, he usually blew in the door around 5:15....   [tags: Creative Writing Narrative Essays] 2134 words
