Thoth on OS Truth and Lies

I have been going through a personal tragedy. Few weeks ago I decided to go on OS to see what’s new. I was happy to see that Thoth is back. Then I also saw the same bullies still following him around and insulting him. So I kept reading from blog toRead full post »

There is a Man Who Loves Me

There is a man who has loved me for a long, long time.
I know this by his smile each morning as he says, “Good morning, Baby”.
I know this when, as I go out the door, he says, “Be careful. Come home safe.”
I know this by his tender kiss, his arms… Read full post »

Its All About Dick

She slowly waded to shore, the lake her refuge in heat of the day.  The sun overhead burned her shoulders and back.  By tonight it would feel like tissue paper crinkling and burning with each breath she took.  Her blond hair made blonder by the rays of the sun, tumbled over… Read full post »

The Man On the Stairs: a repost

Young, single and full of passion, I was rushing out of the dance club, hurrying to escape the meat market atmosphere.

The band was blasting out Rock and Roll.

He turned the corner at the landing on the stairway down.

Our eyes met.

We both instantly smiled.

He said, "Do you?"

I said, "Yes, I do."

OS Junior High

Recently I have seen comments, nay, entire posts attacking other writers; hell, I’ve seen a post attacking all OS writers.  I stopped posting, save some comments on real posts. These OS bash fests are too much for me. The attacks on posts are one thing but to attack a fellow OSer… Read full post »

101 Words

I stood in the middle of the boxes, the paper and the bubble wrap not knowing where to start or where to end.  A lifetime of prized possessions, held close to my heart and soul.  Some were from my grandparent's home, some from my mother, my sisters and dear friends who

Five Words Open Call

Once young and on  fire
Full of spit and polish
Youth  far behind
No cloak to demolish
In your kiss, I find
All I desire

‘Lady’ had been fondled, kissed, licked and fingered for over an hour tonight.  She remained stoic and stonelike.  Tina had become more than a little frustrated with the lack of gratitude ‘Lady’ gave her.

Fiction Friday: Lady: Part Four

The court room was half full when ‘Lady’ was brought in, clothed in a baggy orange jumpsuit, hair disheveled from a night in jail.  The jail matron had searched her the night before.  She had every orifice examined.  ‘Lady’ had no idea how debasing a strip searc… Read full post »

My Funny Valentine

 My Funny Valentine is one of my favorite,  okay I confess,  my favorite song of the 30's and 40's.  The lyrics are hokey and not very complimentary.  there's nothing like telling the woman you love that although she's kind of ugly, you love her anyway.… Read full post »

Fiction Friday: Lady: Part Three

‘Lady’ finally fell asleep, unable to keep her shivering body or mind alert to new advances by Tina. The morning wake up alarm came just as ‘Lady’ began to dream of her better place, at home with her family.  Fear once again gripped her.  There was no way to avoid thRead full post »

Fiction Friday: Lady: Part Two

The cell darkened as the lights dimmed for the evening.  Tina sat on her bunk smirking at ‘Lady’.  “You know, Lady, you ain’t half bad for a virgin.  I coulda swore you liked it toward the end there.”  ‘Lady’ had her back turned, her handsRead full post »

My Dear Crushee,

You light my days with words of joy

I think you're just a lovely boy.

Your rhymes so sweet

I wait each day for news from you

If you aren't there, I often stew

Fiction Friday: Lady: Part One

I ain’t no fuckin’ lesbian,” she screamed.  The woman rushed her with the makeshift shiv fashioned from a nail file, cornered her in the cell, pressing it at her throat.

“I ain’t gonna do it!” she screamed, her face screwed up in a grotesque mask of anger and t
