Just something random that popped into my head. Thought I would write it down.

"Which would you rather? Do you want to live? Do you want to die?" The specter's voice
was sweet, low, and seductive like that of an ocean siren.
I shook my head, I could not answer the specter just yet.
There are so many things that I want to do that I have not done yet.
I wanted to go to the ocean, swim with the dolphins, wrestle with gators.

I wanted to find that one special person that I would be with for the rest of my life,
I wanted to find the perfect mother for my daughter.
I wanted to watch my daughter as she grew and got spoiled by her grandparents.
I wanted to watch her walk down the aisle to get her diploma.
I wanted to be there, giving her away to her husband.
I wanted to have that special father daughter dance at her wedding.
I wanted to see my grandkids, spoil them with love and gifts.

Looking back in my mind, I could see all that I had done.
My past girlfriends, my days in college, that sexy little maid in the office.
My bitch of a boss, my annoying job, all the deadlines, all the meetings.
My family, our crazy reunions, our christmas parties, Thanksgiving dinners.
I missed my mother, I remembered what she looked like in the coffin. Beautiful as ever.



I even thought about her, the one who got away, the one I had wanted to
spend the rest of my life with. The one who slept with my brother and my best friend.
The one who stole my heart and shattered it. The one who told me that she would
rather die then ever marry me, that I was not good enough for her.
Well.. I remember.. She got her wish.. I remember that night very well.. I killed her..

I could hear her ragged breaths as she tried to scream.
I could hear her heart thumping rapidly in her chest.
I could see the sweat pour down her face, making her shine in the dull light.
I could see her body quivering in fear as I advance.
I could smell the fear as it rolled off of her in waves.
I could smell the hatred as I saw it in her eyes.
I could taste her fear, as I stepped close.
I could taste her blood before I even cut her.
I could feel her hair as I wrapped it around my hand, pulling her head back.
I could feel her blood as it poured over my hand as I sliced open her neck.

I sigh and close my eyes, letting the memories fade.
I look to the specter with a small smile.
It cocked its head and looked at me, confused.
"Do I want to live?" I ask it. "You ask me which I prefer,
living, or dying." It looks at me, inching a little closer, as if to hear me better.
"I do not want to live nor do I want to die. But I know I must do one or the other,
I know I can no longer live here, so again, you ask me which I prefer." I pause,
taking a deep breath.


"I want to die" I whisper as the specter quickly approached and all went black.
