Dreams, come and go but ideas flow out this head of mine.

+ = ---- ---- = +

I'm a creator of worlds. I bleed to put words on a page. I dream of people wondrous, creative and intelligent people, people I wish I knew. I put reveal my true self to others, inner thoughts, hopes, dreams and values.

I fill computer screens with words, paper with ideas, and my head with dreams.
I write stories and share them with you.

PROMPT: Flashlight

How dare you
Sit, gloating behind a glowing screen
Tearing hearts to pieces on the floor
How dare you

It's fine, isn't it
You can't see their reaction
Tears running down their face
Creativity, livelihoods destroyed
Their minds running rampant with horrible thoughts
You can't see it
And you never will

That's the attraction, isn't it
You're too scared to say those things out loud
Behind a screen
No-one knows who you are
And you live for that

You kill yet leave no bodies
You set the fire but leave no ashes
You hurt, abuse and ridicule yet have no real weapons

Because it's so easy
Isn't it
So, easy
To type those words
To make that image
Just press the enter key
And forget it

How can you do these things
Why are you so cruel
But you'd never do it in real life, would you?
Weak little coward
How dare you destroy others
Just because they're happier than you
Just because they have something you don't
Get off the internet
And never come back

Within masks, we find power
Within masks, we find hidden ambitions
Within masks, we find out who people truly are
