can't get HERE from THERE

Horror is what you make of it I suppose...I was just bored at work...

I know the grammar in this is horrible, trust me I know it better then you think.

I could write it at my desk and no one would know or care.

I am at work with nothing to occupy myself but this attempt.

You might peek over the cubical wall or even snoop lightly over my shoulder

You may or may not understand but that is not what is important.

Is it?

Not really.

What is important is that I am here waiting to complete my assignment but I have become bored.

Made myself busy enough not to realize that there is blood from my heart dripping

From your mouth onto the desk below the crimson morbid herald

And onto my skin where I still continue to write as if nothing was wrong.

More droplets fall as soon as it drips to the floor merciless upon the carpet.

I look to my pen with it’s fading ink that refuses to revive it’s life for my intent. 

A buzz prompts an end and I put on a cheerful smile while speaking.

Thank you for calling.

How can I help you?

I say these words as my pen plunges into a piece of my heart dripping on the desk

Sucking the blood as if it were an ink of its own and I watch both forms slowly pass on.

I finish my service as the shadow of you lurks elsewhere and once done I choose another pen.

You released the stress of the office with this one. It is on the dark side, but we need to hear all sides too. It is wonderfully written. Don't give up the ship, stay with your job.

Loved it, a little on the dark side but that is okay for the imagery is brilliant. I too used to write and do a lot of my personal writing at my office in between assignments in fact wrote one of my published works there. Great writing here kiddo...enjoyed.

One Halloween by Carol Fowler

This is a suspense-driven, nail-biting horror story that is unimaginable. If you were on the receiving end of this tale, you would end up with bats in the attic It's hard to figur..
