Beware of the Attentive Psycho

” Grandpa’s Secret”

My Valentine Was A Sociopath

     Before I met a sociopath, I was clueless. I never thought that I’d run across one. Sociopaths were only in the movies doing horrible things to other people. Surely I’d never meet someone with such evil intentions. Boy, was I wrong!        Valentine’s Day was upon...

Who Wants Me?

Who Wants Me?        My heart ached. Nobody wants me. I dreamed I was sitting in the middle of an auction. People everywhere. I glanced down at myclothes, all stained and torn. Every eye in the place focused on me. It was my turn on the auctionblock. The...

My Second Best Christmas Gift

My Second Best Christmas Gift         “Okay now, here we go, just keep still, it will be over in a few minutes.”  I’ve heard those words every day for the past seven weeks, as I gave my body over to the monster machine that’s been doing my radiation. ...
