Love Again

You never realize how the last one fucked you up until you try to love again
In your arms
Up all night 
Wondering will the pain ever end
Perfect seems crazy 
Too good to be true
Even if you're trying 
All the things he didn't do
Empty inside 
Nothing left to give
Trying hard to live in these moments
Even harder to live
I want you 
I need you
Just words to be spoken
I love your silence
Comfort to the broken
Your actions make me love again

Dog Eat Dog

I know I'm crazy
Unhinged and mean
But I'm not as tough 
As I may seem
I took the beatings
I had to be tough
I didn't breakdown
Even though things were rough
To hear myself 
I had to speak 
I had to fight
Though i was weak
Don't advise me
You don't know my life
You may think you know
But you wouldn't be right
In this crazy world the weak are eaten alive
Know my truth
Only the strong survive

I know what I don't want 
And I can't be convinced otherwise 
Soft lips 
Piercing eyes
Long tales 
I love the way you sound
You make my childhood fantasies linger 
And I'm a dreamer now
Wake up 
I tell myself
This is all just a dream
The things I use to want
Are not as golden as they seemed
I must continue through the open door
And leave locked ones behind
Shame on the these snakes
Poison to my mind
Your words were slick
Your beauty is rare
But you will lead me to trouble 
And leave me down there

48 Hours

“But she did not love you back though Mr. Buckner,” Detective Parks said. “You were stalking her she filed a restraining order against you two weeks before she was murdered” said Detective Parks.

“No, she loved me it was just that new guy she was seeing!” Tony yelled. “He made her get a restraining order against me!” Tony screamed.

“Do you mean her fiancée?” Detective Parks asked.

Leaping up from his chair in the small interrogation room Tony yelled “She did not want to marry him, he was forcing her to!”

“Again Mr. Buckner where were you on the night that Ms. Ackerman was killed?” asked Detective Parks.

Tony took a deep breathe and slowly sat back down and calmly said “I was at home.”

“Can anyone corroborate your story?” Detective Parks asked.

“No” Tony answered as he looked into Detective Park’s eyes. “I did not kill her, I loved her” Tony said. “I’m telling you her fiancé did this?” Tony screamed.

“Okay Mr. Buckner lets hear your side of the story” Detective Parks said. “Start from when you first met Ms. Ackerman” The detective added.

“Okay, it was two years ago in a coffee shop” Tony started. “Amber was sitting at a table going over a script for an audition for a commercial” Tony said. “I told her I would help go over her lines because I knew a lot about the business, I’m a camera guy” Tony said continuing his story. “Ever since that day we were friends, hung out and went on dates” Tony added with a sad look on his face. “Then she met Jason Stubbs, he was rich, handsome and young; everything I wasn’t” Tony said.

“So when Ms. Ackerman started dating Mr. Stubbs did she tell you she couldn’t see you again?” Detective Parks asked.

“Yes, she said Jason didn’t want us hanging out anymore” Tony said.

“So why were you still calling Ms. Ackerman non-stop and showing up at her apartment, Mr. Buckner?” Detective Parks asked.

“I loved Amber and I knew Jason was wrong for her” Tony said. “I saw him cheating on her and I wanted to warn her but she didn’t want to hear it” Tony said.

“Is that why you killed her?” Detective Parks asked.

“I did not kill her” Tony said through clenched teeth.

The door to the interrogation room opened and there stood a young fresh faced officer. “Detective Parks there has been a breakthrough in the case” the young officer said.

“Okay I will be right there” Detective Parks said. “You know what Tony I’m going to be honest with you, things don’t look good for you right now” the Detective said. “The way that girl was hacked up you will be lucky if you just spend the rest of your life in prison” The Detective added as he left the interrogation room.

Tony was nervous as he looked around the empty room. All he could think about was his little brother and if he went to prison who was going to put him through law school.

“Well Tony we found the murder weapon” The detective said as he shook his head.

“That’s great I’m free to go then, right?” Tony asked.

“No Tony, we found it in the dumpster outside your apartment with your fingerprints all over it” Detective Parks said.

It was like everything was moving in slow motion when Tony heard the detective say his fingerprints were all over the murder weapon. As soon as Detective Parks finished his sentence the interrogation room filled up with officers. In seconds Tony was in handcuffs and was being hauled off to a cell.

When it was time for Tony to use his one phone call he called his little brother Bennie. “Hey Bennie it’s me Tony I’m in jail and I need your help” Tony said. “Look just listen, they are trying to pin Amber’s murder on me” Tony said. “I need you to get in touch with her sister Sarah and find some proof I didn’t do it and her fiancée Jason Stubbs did” Tony said.

“Okay Tony” Bennie answered.

“Okay I’m counting on you, I have to go now” Tony said then he hung up the phone.

 Bennie quickly got in touch with Sarah who to his surprise thought that Jason killed her sister as well. Sarah was almost sure she could get evidence to get Tony off. Sarah said her sister kept a diary and she would just go to her apartment and get it. Bennie waited on Sarah at a near by coffee shop while she went to retrieve the diary. Bennie waited patiently until an hour had passed and he became worried. Sarah wasn’t answering her cell phone so Bennie decided to go by the apartment himself.

Bennie pulled up to Amber’s apartment and he didn’t see Sarah’s car anywhere so he decided to go in. The front door was already unlocked and inside there was signs of a struggle and blood. Bennie looked everywhere but there was no sign of the diary. On his way out of the apartment he called the police and told them what happened.

Even after Bennie told the police what happened they still wouldn’t arrest Jason. They said there was nothing linking him to the crime. Bennie knew he was his brother’s only hope. Bennie begin to think if I was with an abuse jealous man who had a key to my apartment I would probably hide my diary somewhere else. Then it hit Bennie where better than my big sisters house who hated him.

Bennie rushed over to Sarah’s house and searched from top to bottom. Just he was about to give up there in Amber’s old room was a huge teddy bear with a zipper. It was like the bear was calling out to him. Bennie slowly unzipped the teddy bear and there it was the diary.

Bennie rushed to the police. When Bennie got to the police station he went right to Detective Parks and threw the diary on his desk.

“What’s this?” Detective Parks asked.

“Proof my brother didn’t kill Amber Ackerman” Bennie said. “Read the last three pages” He said.

Detective Parks read the last three pages. “Officer Sykes release Mr. Buckner and send a squad to Stubbs enterprises to pick up Mr. Jason Stubbs” Detective Parks said.

“That steak was amazing Avery” Miranda said. “You weren‘t lying when you said you could cook” Miranda said with a smile.

“Thanks” Avery said. “Do you want to go for swim in the pool?” He asked.

“No I really should be going” Miranda said.

“Are you leaving already?” Avery asked disappointed.

“Yeah, I got a busy schedule today” Miranda said.

“Its just I have been trying to get you to my house forever and when you finally get here you only stay an hour” Avery said.

“I have to tell you something Avery“ Miranda said as she stood up from the dinner table.

“I don’t think I like the sound of that” Avery said with a laugh.

“I think we should end things.” Miranda said to Avery trying hard not to make eye contact.

“Why?” Avery asked while his eyes welled up with tears.

“I’m just not happy anymore.” Miranda stated.

“So that is it? After a year we are done?” Avery questioned angrily.

“I’m in love with someone else.” Miranda said now staring directly into Avery’s eyes.

“Are you serious!” Avery screamed as he got up from his seat. “I can’t believe this!” he yelled now pacing back and forth.

“Calm down Avery. Its for the best” Miranda said try to comfort him.

“No Miranda don’t try to comfort me!” Avery yelled. “I won’t let you do this.” He told Miranda with a crazy look in his eyes. “I’ll kill you before I let you leave.” He told her.

“Avery don’t be insane, just move on!” Miranda yelled becoming frustrated.

“I’m serious.” Avery said eerily calm.

“Okay I’m going to leave now” Miranda said now very frightened.

“ No you aren’t” Avery said as he grabbed Miranda’s wrist.

“ Let me go!” Miranda screamed frantically trying to get away.

“I knew were cheating on me but I told myself you would come to your senses because we were in love.” Avery whispered in Miranda’s ear as he tightened his grip on her wrist. “I can’t live without you Miranda, can’t you see that!” He screamed. “I gave you everything!” Avery yelled.

“Please Avery let me go.” Miranda begged as she started to cry. “I’m sorry.” She whimpered.

“No you aren’t but you will be.” Avery said. “See I found out where your little boyfriend lived” Avery said with a huge creepy grin on his face. “I waited until he went to sleep then I broke into his apartment.” He said. “He thought I was I you” Avery laughed.

“No Avery.” Miranda begged.

“Yes Miranda! I killed your boyfriend” Avery said. “I stabbed me twenty times in the chest!” He screamed. “He didn’t even know who I was!” Avery yelled angrily. “You never even mentioned me!” He screamed. “The guy that worked two jobs for you! Gave you a car and paid all of your bills!” Avery screamed in tears.
“You used me!” he yelled.

“Avery I met you in the strip club you had to know that this wasn’t real” Miranda said. “I’m a stripper this whole this was just a fantasy.” Miranda said. “Miranda isn’t even my real name.” Miranda said trying to calm Avery down.

“I thought you were different from all those other girls though” Avery said as he loosened he grip on her wrist. “I guess you just like the rest of them only wanting money” Avery said. “I wanted to marry you, Miranda” Avery said.

“Avery I was going to marry Jake, the guy you killed” Miranda said.

“Well not anymore.” Avery said. “You should have married me, Miranda” He said. “What did Jake ever do for you?” Avery asked. “I was the one you took care of you” Avery added.

“Listen Avery now that he is gone we can be together” Miranda said. “Nothing is stopping me from being with you now” Miranda said trying to convince him not to kill her. “Just let me go” Miranda pleaded.

“No you are lying, that’s all you do!” Avery yelled. “Just shut up!” He screamed. “You are just trying to trick me” Avery said.

“No Avery I’m not I really care about you” Miranda said.

“Stop lying!” Avery yelled.

“Please don’t do this.” Miranda said through tears. “We can be together now” Miranda pleaded.

“Enough” Avery said as he pulled a switch blade from his pocket.

“Please don’t” Miranda cried out. “Help!” Miranda screamed hoping a neighbor would hear. “Somebody help me!” She yelled as she jerked around trying to free herself.

“You were just like the rest of them” Avery said. “They lied to me and forced me to do things, bad things I did not want to do” Avery said. “I got blood on my hands because of you lying women!” Avery yelled. “You only think about yourselves and money!” He screamed.

“Avery you don’t have to do this” Miranda said.

“Quiet, don’t worry you will be with your love soon” Avery said as he ran his fingers through her long black hair and slit Miranda‘s throat. “See what you made me do!” He yelled as he let her lifeless body hit the floor. “I loved you!” He screamed at her lifeless body. “Now you, Jake and all the rest of those liars can be together” He said as he lit a cigarette with his bloody hands.

“Good boy Avery” a dark figure in the corner of the room said. “She wasn’t good enough for you” the dark figure added. “You don’t need her, you have me” The dark figure said.

“I just want to love someone” Avery cried. “I just want someone to love me back” Avery said in tears.

“All you need is me!” the dark figure yelled as it moved closer.
“Your dead!” Avery yelled. “Leave me alone!” he screamed. “Your not real!” Avery screamed.

“I’m your wife!” The dark figure yelled. “You can only love me!” The dark figure screamed.

“No, no, no!” Avery wailed. “Get out of my head!” He screamed.

“I will never let you go Avery” The dark figure said. “You are mines forever!” The dark figured yelled. “Now let’s bury the body” The dark figure said.

Codename: Bonnie and Clyde 2.2

Chapter 2
2.2 One of them: Unstable Elements

Daniel and Angelica followed the burly bouncer to the back of the smoke filled club. They watched as drunken club-goers danced wildly underneath the pulsating strobe lights in the dimly lit club. They danced to Hip-Hop music played so loudly you could not hear yourself think. Angelica and Daniel pushed past scantly dressed women and overly zealous men until they reached a roped off area which looked like the VIP. 

There behind a red velvet rope sat Kimura and his men on a snow white leather couch surrounded by beautiful women and glass tables. Kimura was drinking a dark colored alcoholic beverage and smoking a cigar while a sexy brunette whispered in his ear. As soon as Kimura saw Angelica he motioned for the woman to move. Kimura’s eyes lit up when he saw Angelica he smiled at her and waved them over. The brunette looked at Angelica and rolled her eyes as she got up and moved to the other side of the VIP area. Angelica smiled back and walked over to Kimura as Daniel followed closely behind her. As Angelica approached Kimura stood up like the gentleman everyone knew him as and kissed her hand. "Welcome" Kimura said. "Please, sit down" he said as he shook Daniel’s hand. "Get them a drink" he ordered one of his men. "What do you two drink?" He asked while gazing into Angelica’s eyes. "I’ll take a vodka and tonic" Angelica answered. "Hennessy and coke" Daniel replied. The man waved down a waitress and gave her their order. 

Daniel was beginning to feel uncomfortable. The way Kimura looked at Angelica made him nervous. Kimura was smitten with her, he had not taken his eyes off her since they got there. Angelica must have sensed Daniel’s apprehension because she grabbed his hand and held it tight. When Kimura saw her take his hand it was like the air was let out of him and he was snapped back into reality. Kimura turned up his glass and gulped down what was left. Then he motioned for the waitress to bring him another.

"So I like you two" Kimura said. "I would like you two to start work right away" he said. "Is tomorrow good?" He asked. "Yeah" Angelica answered. "Good" he said as the waitress brought over his drink. "Okay, tonight I show you how the boss parties" he said with a grin as he took a long sip of his drink then sat it on the glass table. "Chanel, may I have this dance?" Kimura asked. Angelica quickly looked over at Daniel. "That is if its okay with Carter" he added. "Its cool" Daniel said as he forced a smiled. Daniel watched as Kimura led Angelica to the dance floor. This is not cool Daniel thought. A notorious murder and crime boss was enthralled with his girlfriend and he could not break character. No matter how bad he wanted to say hell no you can not dance with my real girlfriend and fake wife he could not. Daniel was forced to sit watch as Kimura shameless flirted with Angelica all night.
