Between Kisses by Katie Hale

Thu, 20 Mar 2008 15:00:00 +0000

What I really mean is, I'm content. Not dancing souls together bent like rushes, our two hearts close but not touching - beating hearts that do not beat in time. We do not rhyme; I do not echo you. There is no raw red passion when we kiss - no spark, or darkened corner in a dim-lit room - no bliss of midnight ecstasy, but just the misty grey of shadows on my heart. I say my secret silently, and do not share my tired no, but whisper a resounding yes - nor do I smile as now you stroke my hair and tell me how you love me; it's so much easier to say I love you too



Broken Hearts and Torn-up Letters by Rachael Carlyle

The house had really begun to stink. Passers-by wrinkled their noses, eyes darting for the cracked sewer pipe or the dead horse that could produce the offensive stench. Neighbours muttered darkly about their house value. Something had to be done, not by them, naturally, but still, someone more suited to the job would have to do it.



Fix by Naomi Rose Geraghty

It takes precisely thirty-three and a half seconds for me to realise just how much tequila it's going to take to obliterate the past forty eight hours, and only a further eight seconds to remember that I don't usually keep that kind of alcohol around the house, presumably for some insidious, preposterous, ludicrous and inexplicably worthy reason like not getting faceless on a work night.



Quilted Secrets by Elizabeth Ann Thexton

Cartmel Fell, 1886.



A Secret Revelation, A Hidden Cry For Help by Eleanor Calsy-Harrison

Fri, 01 Feb 2008 08:00:00 +0000

The screen is my counsellor and typing is my therapy. Tap, tap, tap; my fingers are fidgety, dancing on the keys and unsure of where to start. How to explain, how to begin, Sometimes things are best kept within.
