Youre so far away but so real my dear
I go to sleep to dream and to see you clearly
To quiet my mind and to know that you love me
And in the morning I wake
To the sound of your voice on the phone
But I had just spent the night alone
So for days and days its something repeating
Most of the time Im okay, I swear
Even though my hearts weeping
Especially during those times that are creeping
Around the corner, theyre misleading
I have to stay strong, its unbearably tough
After so many weeks Ive about had enough
But boy its so worth it when we finally touch
I look into your eyes, theyre so green
Who am I kidding, youre only on the screen
This long distance thing is harder than it seems
I scream, I sigh, and I cry
Though I know youre mine, all mine
Its about time you understood these lines
More than words, theyre my thoughts
Bleeding from inside
I cant hide them no more
Wont you come walking through my d

I laid there all night. Eyes open watching her breath and turn in the night. I wouldn't call her a peaceful sleeper. Well at least she doesn't snore. Though another positive to staying up to monitor her sleeping, is she isn't glaring nor is she talking. No offence to her, but I don't always enjoy peoples company. Unfortunately I actually need her. I exhaled loudly.
I lifted myself gradually off the awkward position that I lied in for six hours. I really hope it was worth it. My back also seemed to be in the shape of a V. I limped over to a clear space and cracked my spine back into place. What's that smell?! I raised up my arms, and blubbered. It's me!
With that I sprinted to the bathroom, ripped off my clothes and jumped into the shower. After scrubbing off my horrid smell, I grabbed a towel wrapping it around me and walked over to the basin. Looking into the mirror I gasped. I had an enormous smudge of mud on my face.
"Scarlet " I muttered, wiping the embarrassing slu

The Care and Feeding of Your New Pet Drow!
Thank you for shopping at the Underdark Exotic Pet Store! Remember- mind flayers, drow, svirfneblin, deurgar, aboleths; whatever you fancy, we have it!
Your drow may start out small –common sizes range from three to five inches- but soon it will grow up to a ten inches tall! Remember that your drow needs space, so keep it in a proper sized cage.
Your new drow and you!
Your relationship with your new drow will start as soon as you see that special one in the pet store window, but by now you should have brought him –or her- home. Carefully remove your new drow from the carrying case by lifting him or her out by the scruff of the neck with your fingers. Gloves are advised, as your new drow will likely be disoriented and may react with violence and/or darts, knives, scimitars, short swords, polearms, longswords, and snake whips. If your drow does try to attack you, shake it gently while utt

1.) Gesture drawings: Yeah, I know, it's one of the most annoying criticisms you'll get "you need to do more gesture drawings!" Stifle your reflex to kick them into a volcano and do it. Your art will be better for it. Try to set aside at least 15 minutes a day for gesture drawing.
2.) Draw from life: If you've been drawing or painting for any significant amount of time, you've probably heard this one too. Second verse, same as the first. Do it, your art will be better for it. Observational skills are KEY to representational art and the more you hone them, the more skilled you will become. Try to imprint on things you see around you; think of life as like a big How To catalog.

FactoryThe room was dark, no Murky would be a better word, murky, lifeless and silent. Trying to move or even call out for help from the spot where he lay was Mark, but it was not going to happen and all he could do was watch the light flash from under the door as uncaring footsteps walk uncaringly past again and again, as if they didn't even acknowledge the existence of the room. He turned to his memories, searching through them trying to work out how he had arrived in this situation.Factory4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Factories were large these days, with multiple uses usually being carried out in the same building, and the workforce which was made up of robots doing menial jobs, with humans doing some of the more complex ones and management roles were just as interchangeable. Though they never really interacted with one another. Robots mostly stuck with robots, and humans stuck to humans unless it was necessary for combining jobs
