A starless sky stretches overhead, the glimmer of dawn seeping into my field of vision.
A pale strip of light dividing the tips of heaven and hell, opposing realms reaching out with slender fingers, ghosting over the faces of sleeping children.
A scentless breeze caresses my own cheek, dances through my dark locks of hair, whispers forgotten secrets in my ear, before soaring high into the distance.
Death, cloaked in a mantle of fear twirls gracefully by, passing me time and time again, acknowledging my unrest yet thinking nothing of it.
The Kingdom of Dreams, a day's walk East from where I stand now, beckoning, tempting, calling out.
Trapped between galaxies, unable to glide so peacefully from one to the other.

However, when he flicked the switch, he found it refused to turn on.[Animal Crossing] A Bone to Pick12 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Oh stuff and nonsense!" the owl harumphed, fixing his spectacles as he flicked the switch off and then on again. "The light bulb is gone out! Stuff and nonsense again I say!" H
