Screaming At The Moon – Jason King

Poignant, deeply human read from Jason King

The Lithium Chronicles

I’m standing outside….smoking a cigarette….it’s dark….it’s cold….I’m pulling my leather jacket around me….trying to keep warm….it’s not going to help….the sky is perfectly clear….so many stars out tonight….it brings back memories….those damned things….I’m a child….possibly five….six….I’m down in Tennessee with my father….it’s dark like tonight….we are standing on the edge of a field….he shows me Orion….how I can always find it….it’s one of only a few memories I have of him….but that’s a story for another time….

It’s the holidays….almost Christmas time….I have a birthday coming up in just a little over a week….reminding me my time is passing by ever quicker….I guess I should be grateful I’ve made it this far….many are denied that….but if I’m being honest I don’t really care about that….Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas….hasn’t for many years….I know on my birthday I’ll be alone….same as the year before….guess it may be too early to start…
