I Cannot Cry Thank God Dad held onto me when we walked in. I probably would’ve fled from the room. This small gesture of comfort kept me from breaking down. We’d already waited a while. But I wasn’t as ready as I thought. This was a day I’d feared ever since they’d taken Grandpa away two months before. But nothing could’ve prepared me for this. Even before I saw him, it felt so unreal. Dad knew it too. I could tell from the way he massaged my shoulder as we all watched: me, him, Grandma and my four uncles. Surrounded by his wife and children and he couldn’t see it.I Cannot Cry by FireKATLit
No one said a word. While everyone stared at Grandpa, I stared at the foot of the bed, glancing up at him every other second. I couldn’t look at him and I felt terrible for it. Every glance threatened a flood of tears. Words can’t describe the hurt that loomed. It left its mark on all of our faces, his sons especially. Saddened, grief st
The Genie and the Girl: Part 3The genie raised an eyebrow. “Right… really, what do you want?”The Genie and the Girl: Part 3 by FireKATLit
“For you to be free.”
“I’m serious, kid.”
“So am I… I wish you could be free.”
Before the genie could react, she’d tossed the lamp away. The vapor around him disappeared and he no longer felt that same chill when he stayed in one place too long. He looked down at himself. Those puffy pants and uncomfortable pointy shoes were gone. He was fully clothed in… well, he didn’t recognize what he was wearing at all. He presumed it must’ve been some sort of formal wear for humans. “Is this what people wear these days?” More importantly, he no longer felt bound to the lamp. It looked like nothing more than garbage lying in the puddle the girl had tossed it in.
“First wish? That was your only wish. I can’t grant you anything now.”
“Yes you can. You can grant me the satisfaction that you no longer need to tend
Charleston ShootingR.I.P to the nine victims who were shot Wednesday June 17, 2015 during Bible study in Charleston. The person arrested for it claimed he almost didn't do it because they were so nice to him.... They were nice to him and he shot them anyway! I hope he rots in jail!Charleston Shooting by FireKATLit
The Empty ChairThe Empty Chair by FireKATLit
Picture perfect scene of tranquility
Comfort’s deceptive guise
Its owner kept quiet
His loved ones in the dark
Silence aids his downfall
His attention stolen from them
By fast cars and charismatic stars
Have they the heart to tell him?
The warning that hovers over him
And rains on them with heartbreak
Indolence leads to his departure
His stay is cut short
As is his life of leisure
Loved ones gather, his wife among them
Drenched in pain and loss of hope
Their faith has been shattered
The confidence that times would change
And that the elder’s chair need no longer fear his absence
Warmth and comfort remain
But will the two ever meet again?
“Bid farewell to your companion”
Did the elder hear her?
Can he recognize his lover’s voice?
How can she pull him away?

The Genie and The Girl: Part 2His arms crossed, the genie looked down on the girl with utter contempt. He tried to imagine what he was in for. What would a kid her age want? She might feel like she’s too old for toys. He thought he remembered something about smart phones. Only he was in that lamp so long he had no idea what that was. But he had a pretty good inkling that’s what she was going to ask for. Actually, she may not even ask. A lot of them didn’t even say “I wish.” They often replaced those two words with “Gimme” and “I command you.” He grew so tired of having to remind people that he granted wishes, not demands. Their needs had to be voiced in the form of a wish. It was just a reminder of how he was to serve mankind forever.The Genie and The Girl: Part 2 by FireKATLit
“Greetings,” he said wondering why the child hadn’t reacted. She stared at him with a look that suggested all he did was bore her. She was probably so spoiled nothing could impress her anymore. Not even a real gen
