    The apocalypse hit hard. Really hard. One day, people were walking, talking, enjoying their lives, and the very next day they were coughing up blood and vomiting out organs. The virus was an odd one; the equivalent to influenza, Ebola, malaria, and the Black Death if they all formed a team and learned how to […]

    POETRY: Ode to Happiness

    Oh, that feeling, How your presence alters. Your fleeting statures, How I praise your return and dread your absence.  One minute with you feels like a year, But seconds without you feels like an eternity.
