"With The Lights Out (It's More Dangerous)," Sunday, January 22, 2012
This is written to one person in particular, who passed away a fair number of years ago now, but still finds a place in my heart. It's also dedicated to the characters of all the stories I've written, all the worlds I've wrought, as an apology for not continuing those stories; I care too much for my characters, and so I can't bear to see them hurt, even the ones who might deserve it, or might need it for the sake of the story.

"Hey You," Friday, December 2, 2011
I don't remember who I wrote this for, and even though it's a relatively simple matter of going back and figuring out who I was emotionally involved with at the time, I don't really bother. I highlight this piece, not for the piece itself, but for the concept in the final paragraphs: while I may be guilty of burning many bridges, I still keep a profile on the inner circle, watching and waiting. I've had too many bad experiences from exes and friends of exes trying to come back and haunt me after the fact that I can't be lax and let them just fade away.

For all the characters I've made in stories, and for the ease at which I find to make new ones, generating a false persona to watch over a social circle is rediculously easy.

"Hoping For Sly," Sunday, July 26, 2009
Sly is a stuffed animal, a fox stuffed toy. This is a short attempt in trying to create magic in my world, and from the few entries, you can easily judge that I was unsuccessful.
