I have chosen to post my short stories here. I hope you find as much catharsis in their reading as I found in their writing. However please be warned, these stories are for adults only. They contain content of a violent and sexual nature. There are no Disney princes, no animated heroes. As the medieval cartographers used to say, "Here there be dragons..."
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
“Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling, where alone I sing my tearful song, which has charms only for me.”
