Day 233 – Years End – Short Story

As the year comes to its closure, its last day, the final night, our worlds, also comes to its end. I’ve tried to tell anyone one who would listen, some who wouldn’t, although regardless of their standing, the answer was always the same, they don’t believe me.

So, I came here, online, to this forum, hoping to find someone, anyone who would listen to my story, to understand, and, to spend the last few moments of this world, on the same plain of existence, on the same level of thought, as me. Well, that’s how I planned it all to work, how I thought I was going to start this message. I know, I know, I’m not making sense, but I don’t mean to, I mean that as honestly as I can, because, for you to understand, at first you mustn’t, damn it, all I really want to do is tell you why tonight, you’re all going to die.

People are surprised when reading Matthew’s stories that he’s a sane forty something year old, happily married, father of one, employed full time and dream of dark disturbing things that any sane person would never even contemplate thinking of. But it's true, he’s toyed with writing for most of his adult life, but has always found the peg a writer must fit into is not the shape he wished to be. His writing can be described as lamenting, long, concussive (yes it smashes you in the head), compulsive, and stuffed with rhythmic communication and violence, let’s not forget the violence. His own opinion on his writing is this, “You see, I don't just want the words to seep into your mind, but into your soul, showing you images of blood and beauty through, volatile language, violence, sex, love and sin. My muse takes different shapes, and every now and then you can see her shining her wicked smile in some of my stories, tempting you with her promises, but ripping your heart out instead.” So have a look, and take a seat in my wayward ride, as you join me while I purge through, this twisted road of madness.
