DestinyAs I watch the clock tick time away,
I realize my time is coming.
I do not know the hour or day,
But the song of death is humming.
I can feel the grip of darkness
Closing in around me,
The Reapers sharpened scythe
Hovering over my body.
With one flick of his wrist,
The blade comes crashing down,
My silent form unmoving,
My soul no longer bound.
I see the light of Heaven.
Loving arms surround me.
The pain of life is gone.
And I am finally free!

Trees conform to a playful sway
Natures sins shall be washed away
The crystal flood comes flowing down
The wind is howling all around
Lightning flashes in bright array
Hear a distant cry of dismay
A worn travelers somber sound
The storm is quickly rolling near
Vicious thunder growls everywhere
Shelter now is needed to hide
The monsters fury plagues me here
Gloomy despair imbues the air
Slowly filling me up inside

From the bouncy trampoline and the mini desert in my sandbox.
Im from the smell of freshly fallen pine needles
The blooming pear tree teeming with life
From the dark shadows under our porch.

From Rugrats and Scooby Doo
From when my uncle lost his life in a car crash at age 15
From the family pictures scattered in random spots around my cluttered house
From the empty feeling of knowing that Daddys not here.
I am from those moments
A bright green leaf tainted with holes and spots
Dangling from a small, broken tree.
Coma"Sonic?" Tails asked his blue hedgehog companion. He squirmed uncomfortably in the starchy chair beside the hospital bed. Sonic opened his eyes slowly. Weariness hung over him as he painfully sat up, letting out a groan as a dull throb once again settled in on his body.Coma8 years ago in Scraps More Like This
"Hi Tails," he replied hoarsely. His voice had sounded rough as sandpaper for the last few days.
"How are you?" Tails put his hand on the bed.
"Fine, besides the pain… though it has rather toned down," Sonic weakly smiled, and a raspy cough escaped his lips.
He looked up at Tails, who was trying to smile back, but concern had flooded all other emotions. Tails yawned, and Sonic noticed prominent bags under the fox's eyes.
"You can't stay here forever, you know. Why don't you go to the workshop and get some sleep?"
"I want to stay here, Sonic. I'd be feeling sick until you came out of the hospital," Tails said truthfully.
"How much sleep have you had in the past 24 hours? Have you been sitting here the whole time?" Sonic
