A Place to Share for Writers and Teachers
Lust is defined as a need to claim thorns and shove them in our skin
Making us no different but self-harming our lives.
Lust isn’t just labeled as a sexual temptation but the greed and glutton ways
Coming, from all over us, as needles in our minds.
Lust doesn’t happen inside clubs, proms, or desires from our hearts
But from the flesh that craves insanity thought our time.
Lust is a spirit roaming through a street with choking…Continue

A Lone gunman entered….That is a haunting phrase we hear all the time when media first encounters a shooter in a building. It is one of those familiar catch phrases that desensitize us to the insanity of modern life in America. Just another lone gunman.
Only recently, as we began to unravel the unthinkable tragedy of Sandy Hook Elementary school, did it’s true meaning take shape. The space between the first two words should not be there. Alone is the world…Continue

With a broken heart,
And a weary soul,
I walk alone.
With a tragic feeling,
These words;These worlds meaningless,
Of this life
(KAT,ALEXIS, and ROBERT are camping out in the forest, dirty, and tired. ALEXIS fell asleep, while KAT and ROBERT are still fully awake, however restless)
(sighs) That was kindergarten. I was young, childish, and stupid to make a promise like that to you.
I didn’t and still don’t find it stupid at all. I think about it now and it just seems something like any cute girl would do… Was I the only…

My daughter and I love to watch our cats do some crazy and cute things. Sandy always likes to go crazy knocking over everything the house. I don't know how many times I've had to clean up her messes. One…Continue

I got the chance to spend a little R & R time on Saturday so I decided to check out the movie "Won't Back Down". Did anyone else get to see this? It is a story of a parent and a teacher in the Pittsburgh School district who had just had enough. Both of these ladies had special needs children and were fed up with the school district's refusal to hold a failing school accountable. This teacher had gradually lost the compassion she had first had when she first became a teacher and was…Continue

EARTH, WIND, FIRE AND WATER
As much as humans would like to think they are in charge, it is not so. We are nothing more than another species living on the face of the earth. Like all others, we are subject to the laws and rules set by nature.
No matter how much technology is developed by mankind, he will never gain the upper hand and be in charge of nature. Think about that for a…Continue

Riding the Rain
A short Story Written by: Rick Boutcher
Recall a time riding my bike up Route 17 heading towards Roscoe, New York. I was totally ripped and truly enjoying the vibration of the bike as well as the sound that was following.
I was for sure a free spirit, leaning back into the leather covered seat pan, booted feet up on the highway bars, my hands so very comfortably wrapped around the re-curve handle bars. My black skull cap helmet, mirrored…Continue
