More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

A disturbing graphic life of molestation, destruction; crime, drugs, and a death wish. Attempts of suicide by cop or "execution style" A moment of selfishness by having children and marrying a “war hero” saved my life. I became human again and I am now immortal to those who are still out to destroy me. http://momentarylapsesofinsanity.blogspot.com/
