"'Never turn down a challenge, never look back, and never give away your name.' These, as I was told by my mother long ago, were the only words my father had for me. Wherever he is, whoever he is, I'm sure he's disappointed. Elle is here for me though, and she calls me Scíath, her little shield. She tells me I protect her from the real world, save her from insanity, even. Strangely enough, though, whenever she calls me that, even if only for a fleeting instant, I feel like I have a real name. Six years ago, I lost it, lost my name, and I'm sure the time I've spent in this rank pit is a repercussion of violating that geis my father place
Virza Round OneThe cold.Virza Round One5 years ago in Horror More Like This
Stanley Soak had always hated the cold. This was in part because his body, unnaturally kept alive by all manner of conditioning and genetic doping for 34 years, had to stay hot to stay alive. If his body temperature dropped below 90º F, his brain would die, Nature would take back its turf, and he would become a corpse.
The cold was an itching, burning, nauseating, stiffening sensation. The cold was the enemy. The cold blinded, stole your hearing, the feeling in your fingertips, the movement of the blood. Stanley Soak hated the cold.

You should be playing with friends of your own.

And couldnt believe her emerald eyes
When, sitting on top of a flower by her side
She spotted a fairy, its wings open wide
Isnt it lonely playing on your own?

Youre losing all direction without
Any glimpse of meaning, desperately,
Pathetically, just clinging to the

In your arms, something that can keep
You out of harm's way, some reason to stay
With us, right here, right now.

Would you greet me with a kiss, or kill me for the methedrine under my fingernails?

After so many sunny afternoons,
Laughing the day away
Our worries floating away with the wind
Even though I cannot see,
You have shown me things I would not have thought of
You keep telling me,
Stars are beautiful, Ill show you one day
You told me
I always believed that there is no such thing as beauty
But I was proven wrong
No matter how hopeless,
How long the road is,
I kept walking
And the beauty in my sky
I am here now,
But where are you?

A voice that speaks in dreams
A voice that talks in urges
A voice released in surges
A calculating mind of subconscious will
A mind unleashed in time of need
A mind that knows and understands all
A mind never left still
A mind that leaves me naught but a thrall
A mind held by primal deed
A second voice,
A second mind
How powerful must I be?
To understand all that I see

A Perfect Shade of Blue
The wispy clouds in the sky a perfect shade of blue appear to be floating on the face of the glassy water as my eyes sink a few inches below the surface. The nights stars are blurred by the ripples of my pin drop into the water.
These stars were blurred even before I had submerged myself, when I was on my buckled knees and gripping the cool, pebbled sand. I was distraught, shivering, and tearing the sequins off of the ghostly, white dress that my mother had crafted for this formal night. My long, dark hair fell past my eyes as I trembled, unable to bridle the shaking, and strands stuck to the ho

Grasp another puppet to take the light.

Slowly gathering dust.
Write my heart out in it.
Rip it out.
Change it into music.
Melodies run through my mind.

They are cages of God
That capture only humans

Separate, but forced under one roof
To love unconditionally
And to worship one God
But what of the free spirited?
What of the soulless?
Are they left to die?
For after death, there must be something better
The free spirited
Wanting only to live their life
Not the life prescribed for them
By some dusty book
Filled with sorrow
Because God hasn't shown them
Convinced of their own ways
Rebellious against teachings of an old preacher
Because they have nothing els
