This short story is one I wrote a few years back when I stumbled upon Hoarders on the Television.  I think - in a way - we all want to hold on to things a bit too long, whether it's an object, a  memory, or a person. 
Let me know what you think of this one, Creepsters.
Let me know if you can relate to Gigi...

Her Secret Stash - Nightmare # 11:
Gigi knew she held on to things for too long; she always had that compulsion.  But now, it was growing.  Growing at such a rapid pace that she, herself, could not control it anymore.

She knew things had to change - would change - with or without her.

Sooner than later, there would be no place left for her clothes, no more room for her keepsakes, not another spot available for even a single newspaper.

She never thought it would come to this.
Never once in all of her 72 years would she have imagined it could get this bad - this cluttered.

But it was bad.

Bigger than bad.

And it was growing.

After all, the newspaper came every day; mail piled up on the germ-infested floor; and although her trips to the market were dwindling, she still managed to gather and cram as much as she could into that Chrysler from flea markets and supermarts.

If only he hadn’t left her.  That's when the condition worsened.  If only he had kept his promise.  “I’m right here, baby,” he had assured her numerous times throughout their 44 years together.  “I love you and I’ll always be here with you.”

Gigi flung her dirty teacup onto a mound of garbage that used to be a kitchen counter and headed to bed.  She needed to rest; clear her mind; dream away the misery of the day.

She needed to let go.

Let go of everything. 

But it was too hard.

It was too damn difficult. 

This trying-to-change idea just made her anxious and crazy - crazier than she was now.

It broke her heart that he couldn’t hug her and let her know everything would be okay; it crushed her that he would never again give her a peck on the forehead to soothe her; it killed her that he lay beside her –lifeless and swollen – unable to comfort her anymore. 

Sure.  His lump of decaying flesh was better to hold onto than nothing, but she missed him – his voice; his laugh; his heartbeat. 

His skin was melting now, no doubt from the humidity of the past few days.  And from the smell, she knew his body was beginning to feed upon itself, and soon, he would be unrecognizable - even to her.

She knew it was wrong.  Not like the cheating on a math test kind of wrong, but a biggie-kind of wrong.  The wrong that you don’t bounce back from; a wrong that people will never understand; the kind of wrong that follows you not only through your life but long after your death. 

But she didn’t care – not in the least.

She’d stay here with him, just a little while longer -just until it was her turn to join him.

She nuzzled his chest and draped her arm over his torso.

“I'm right here, baby,” she sighed.  “I love you and I'll always be here with you.”

What's Good For You...

It's best not to talk about your nightmares,
Do not let them see the light of day.
Let them dissolve; let them fade;
Make them to go away.

It's best not to keep track of the monsters,
Because they crave the attention you give.
It's best not to heed them, feed them, or believe them;
To ignore them is the only way that you'll live.

It's best not to show any fear.
It's best not to go about alone.
It's best not to tell anyone you know.
It's best that we're the ones who take you home.

We know the way...
Follow us...
Follow us home.

Leave My Wings Behind Me...

I am a big-time fan of these crows.
And I really do think that these are some of the best words ever written...

....Someone stole my shoes
But there's a couple of bananas 
And a bottle of booze...

That is pure poetry, my Creepsters.
Anyone else out there a fan?
Anyone else feelin' this jam?

Save the Devil

Are you a fan of Lucifer?
Here, at Night Lights, we are a HUGE fan of the show. 
Neil Gaiman got this one right and we want to show our support for the cast and crew and writers of this amazing show.  So, check out the following video for some insight into its effort to salvage itself from damnation.  If you are on Twitter, use hashtags #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer to join the movement.  And finally, there is a Petition going around to try and find a new home for the devil.
Make some noise for this show, Creepsters.
Show some love for Luci and his followers...

Best. Quote. Ever.

I read this quote and it resonated with me immediately.
I love the work of Dali and was lucky enough to view some of it in Florida a few years back. 
Madness is sacred. 
So, too, is our imagination; our ideas; our thoughts and our words.
Hold them close and keep them safe and then share them with the world.
There is comfort in crazy.

Quote this one...

"How fine you look when dressed in rage. 
Your enemies are lucky your condition is not permanent. 
You're lucky, too. 
Red eyes suit so few."

Never walk alone
at night
in the forest
without a light...
For the creatures
will find you
and unwind you
then squeeze you tight.

Here is a haunting piece of dark poetry that I wrote a while back.
I hope it resonates somewhere in your darkened soul.   :)

Nightmare #20

The darkness will find you
---living large
---stuck in the light
---free from worry.
And It will trick you
---get you
---and drag you
To where the flame flickers no more;
To where there isn't a key for the door.
And you can scratch
---and tear
---and pick
at the wood forevermore.
