while I was walkingI once went walking in a wood where I met a man of that place. His skin was tan, his hair tangled and knotted. He wore rags and his teeth were sharp. I ran with him for a time and he taught me the joys of that life. To chase and to catch and to feed and to rest. Always his eyes were bright and clear.while I was walking2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I once went wandering in a city where I met a man of that place. His skin was cared for and his hair was coifed. He wore a suit and his smile was sharp. I tarried with him for a time and he taught me the joys of that life. To talk and to persuade and to thieve and to hide. Always his eyes burned with the joy of the game.
I once went dreaming in a library where I met a man of that place. His skin was pale and his hair was long. He wore what he chose and he chose well. I sat with him for a time and he taught me the joys of that life. To read and to think and to hope and to feel. Always his eyes were smiling and peaceful,
Now all that is past and here I sit. I look at my
freedomdark, heavy clouds flicker with lightning. there is an unpaved foot path, wide and much traveled. everywhere surrounding there is statuary, reminiscent of a graveyard, but there are no dead kept here. off to the right side of the path there is a large obelisk of grey stone. From the front juts a platform that tilts forward, the better to imperil its occupant. His arms are bound behind his back, bound together from wrist to elbow by thick straps. He slumps forward from exhaustion, his long black hair obscuring his face. He kneels upon his platform, leaning forward as if he would fall. A chain from his elbows to the top of the obelisk's face keeps him there. A trickle of blood leaks from his mouth. His wide, grinning mouth. Tears flow from his eyes and mix with the blood on his chin as he whispers the words, "I'm free!"freedom2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
today and tomorrowI woke up one morning and took a deep breath. I could feel the return of the sun. I decided that today would be a good day to stretch my legs with a nice stroll and maybe visit my neighbors. I started down the path and smiled, relishing the feel of the sun through the leaves. It was going to be a good day.today and tomorrow2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
When I woke up this morning I knew I had to get away. It wasn't even 9 and they were already fighting about something. They're a couple of alcoholics. I haven't seen them get along in years. I've occasionally wondered if they drive each other to drink or if they stay together to have more money for alcohol. It didn't matter. I wasn't wanting to listen to the accusations or the shatter of thrown dishes. I slipped on my boots and climbed out the window. Today was a day for not being home.
It was a nice day outside. The sun was out and there was a bit of a breeze. It was warm for April and I smiled as the sun warmed my back through my jacket. I headed out of

on music boxesWhen was the last time you sat down and listened to one of those little wind-up music boxes? I recently came into possession of one and I found I needed to write this. You wind it up and it starts to play. You can hear the whirring of the spinner below the sound of the tines being plucked. You may or may not particularly care for the song it plays, but you listen anyway because it's there. As it starts to slow you can almost imagine that somewhere in all the delicate little gears there's a person playing for you. Just for you. A tiny little person, with a tiny little life, whose only purpose and joy is to play just this little song for you. It gets slower and slower and you can feel them slipping away. You can hear the whirring of their little heart slowing down, but they keep playing, hoping to make your life just that little bit brighter, even as they slip away. The last few notes are so slow and stretched that you're almost not sure that they've stopped playing and have gone, but thon music boxes2 years ago in Emotional More Like This

princely companionsDoes a prince have friends? I would have to say no. Friend is too vague a word. From a certain unrefined perspective a prince could be said to have friends, but he does not. A prince has allies, people who do for him and who he does for. A prince has advisers, people with whom he may choose to discuss courses of action. A prince has teachers, people who help a prince to sharpen his mind. A prince has vassals, people he has a duty toward, to ensure their safety and well-being. A prince may have a confidante or consort, a person to keep their secrets. A prince does not have friends.princely companions2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
