Reluctant Bride snippet"You are to smile on this day..." Conyer demanded as he fixed the bodice of Lupine's wedding dress, the young woman looked away in disgust with a loud scoff. Conyer grabbed the reluctant bride's arm and gave it a harsh tug, forcing her to look at him. "If you ruin this day for my son, you may bid farewell to Nicholas and any other soul you hold dear." The man sneered, his greasy black mustache framing a sinister grimace."How am I to smile when the real man I love lays dead with so many other innocents..." Lupine said, looking at herself in the mirror, truly she was a bride to be jealous of, the dress fit her curves perfectly and framed her silhouette like a second skin.

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.

bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
