I could only ever watch from a distance
Watching as he destroyed himself
He never did listen to me, nor anyone else
"Listen to the song of life" I told him
"There is no song. Not for me."
He sat alone, always alone
He pushed everyone away
He didn't trust humanity, not anymore
Scars that would never heal
"Can't you see what's around you?
Not everything is cruel. There is beauty."
"No. There is no beauty. Not for me.
The world is a harsh place of grey."
He would not fight and the darkness drew him in
He waited patiently on a black sea shore
Waiting for the tide to come in and claim him
I woke one morning to find him gone
His waiting was over
The sea pulsed with him, with his life
The dark water tugged at my ankles
A caressing touch, the touch of a lover
I could feel him in that touch
I could taste him in the ir I breathed
He was all around me
The black sea called me back to it's barren shore
I was the one waiting now
And still his precense wrapped around me
A Lesson On Brick CareA Lesson On Brick Care9 years ago in Humor More Like This
Bricks are excellent pets. As well as being cheap, clean and easy to care for, they are extremely long-lived. They are extraordinarily loyal and have few requirements for housing and feed. They are very hardy, do not trigger allergies and extremely easy to tame. They rarely scratch, but can be a nuisance if left underfoot. However, with proper treatment, you and your brick should have a long and loving relationship. The most common brick is the Common House Brick (brickus brickus), which is normally a red colour. They also appear as other colours, ranging from a creamy-white, to black. Brown is another popular colouration, as there are many shades of brown bricks. The more unusual a brick is in colour, the more expensive.
Bricks have been associated with humans for many years, but are most often used as working bricks. They have only recently been adapted as pets. Closely related to the brick is the rock (rockus granus), which has become quite popular as a pet in recent decades. Hopefu

Hi there, my name is Ahsroth, and I am here to help you, with my five part basic guide to the 'Real World'.
There are times in our lives we just can't avoid it. Times when we are dragged from the comforting glow of our computer screens. Times when all our online super powers are of no use. Yes, I'm talking about the times we have to enter the 'Real World'.
So please, read on, before it's too late. Because if you're not prepared, the Real World will get you…
Part One- What Is The 'Real World'?
How do I rightly explain the Real World? Until you have been there yourself, you can never truly know. There are some things you must remember about the Real World.
1. You can actually get hurt. Actual physical pain. The Real World is a very dangerous place. You cannot heal yourself with magic, you need things called bandages. This takes EFFORT. And also, if you flame people in the Real World, they can beat you up. I will later teach you how to avoid situations like this.
2. People in the
Fork Tales II: Kingdom of MathFork Tales II: Kingdom of Math9 years ago in Humor More Like This
Hi there. My name is Bob, and I am a fork. Not just any old fork. I am the legendary fork warrior; Lady Bob the Fork! You may have heard of me. My last quest was of considerable fame, as I was sent by my good friend Cat the Carrot to find out if her mother was a turnip. It turned out she was. After that terribly exciting adventure, I was more than ready to take a break, but duty calls, and it calls with the voices of a hundred mimes.
We resume my tale ten seconds after the last one ended, only to find me standing with dear Cat, having just informed her of her mother's true vegetality.
"Thank you!" Cat burbled, "For finding out the truth about my mother."
"'T'was my pleasure, my dear friend," I replied graciously.
And that's when I heard it. The cry of a being stricken by need. The cry that I, as the greatest fork warrior, was honour-bound to answer. And answer I did.
"I must go!" I cried to Cat, leaping astride my noble llama. "Ride forth!"
We galloped far and fast o'er deserts and mou
