Bolted to the cement ground in rows and columns.
Some are still empty
But most are filled with people grinning with anticipation
Drumming their fingers
Sending texts, making last-minute phone calls,
Talking to people beside them
Or simply just sitting in silence, emotions filling their heads
Waiting for the moment when it all begins to happen.
Returning to their seats with refreshments,
More people fill up the spaces
We climb the hard grey stairs up and up and up
Until you feel you can touch the nearest cloud
Farther up still until you find the place where you're supposed to be.
Not only the place that the slip of paper tells you
But the place that you feel you want to be,
need to be
and you are so, so glad to be there.
I hang the jacket over the back of my seat, and watch the sunset.
To the right of us, children scream in happiness,
And to the left of us, the sun is slowly setting, casting an orange glow on our faces
as we count down the minutes.
War Changes Everything -GerItaLove is better left in your dreams, not in the present. Especially not in this time period. It was World War 2. A horrible, lifeless, time. It was where I lost everything: my freedom, my people, and, most importantly, the love of my life. He's always been with me till the very end. Well, I guess it's the end now.War Changes Everything -GerIta4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I slowly opened my eyes to the sunshine coming through the open window. The pillow I rested my head on smelled like beer and pasta. I could hear heavy breathing next to me. I sat up and looked over to my lover, Ludwig. He sat criss-crossed on the soft and messy bed. I could tell he had been up all night.
"Germany, what's the matter?" I asked him, holding his icy cold hand. His eyes were empty pools of blue. Ludwig's skin was paler than normal, which was not a good sign. His chest was rapidly rising and falling with every breath. Germany looked so scared; I've never seen him like this before. Ludwig opened his mouth to speak, his voice cracked slightly.

"You're here again," He smiled.
My throat got hot and I nodded. I looked all around and said "Yeah...I guess I am."
"So tell me," he started. "What do you need me for? Not like anyone really ever needs a reason," and he winked. I felt my hands get sweaty as I said "I don't have anything I can think of."
I racked my brain, and no. I actually couldn't think of anything right now, except for him. This man, with angelic face and intense dark eyes that held a gaze that lasted forever.
"I think you missed me," he said, and he grinned, rubbing his own knee with his own sweaty palm, as I was.
"I did. I did so much." and I felt tears begin in my eyes.
"Don't do that!" he almost shouted. "You can't do that, love. It hurts me to see you that way, you can't ...you can't do that." he trembled. He brought a finger to underneath my eye, and pushed away a tear. he slid his hand under mine, and held tight

We see Muriel, Eustace, and Courage, driving along the Spanish countryside. Once again Muriel won another vacation, this time for a glorious week in Spain, but the only problem, they're lost.
"Eustace, are you sure you know where we are." Asked Muriel.
"Yeah. Stop questioning my sense of direction." Said Eustace.
Courage looked out the window at the Spanish countryside, and shivered. The landscape seemed to be getting creepier and creepier. The forest they were driving through was turning a sickly shade of brown and the trees looked very dead. And a strange fog seemed to be getting thicker and thicker.
"How can you see anything in all this fog." Said Muriel, "Face it man, we're lost!"
"We're not lost!" shouted Eustace "I'm just not 100% percent sure where we are."

The river runs through my soul
George Harrison woke up in the bedroom of his sixteenth floor apartment in a sweat. He'd had the strangest dream that he had been in a Vietnamese rice paddy helping villagers harvest the rice when the sound of giant propellers on a helicopter came whipping through the fields and scaring the workers, and him, half to death. He saw the pilots as green people; not like Martians from vintage posters from the 1950s, but more like hairless chimpanzees with green skin and dark orbs for eyes. They grinned at him and he told the villagers not to worry. And somehow, though he was speaking Vietnamese, he understood them and himself. But there was cause to worry, for the green chimps cast nets over the workers in the rice paddies and began to lift them off the ground to take them to some mysterious place. George tried to grab on to the nets and the struts of the helicopters. He tried to call out to the kidnappers and the people in the ne

Italy sighed as he bounced around the house, hair pulled back under a bandana as he dusted. He needed to work off his nervous energy, and cleaning had always calmed him down.
The war was over, the dust had settled, and he would finally see Ludwig again.
He'd gotten a letter, just this morning, saying that his boss was finally letting him visit. As soon as he'd worked his way through enough paperwork to justify visiting to himself, Ludwig would be on his way to Italy. He would be arriving sometime today or tomorrow, and Italy could barely contain himself.
It had been far too long since he'd been in Ludwig's arms. Letters just weren't the same after you'd had them right next to you for years.
Far too soon, the house was spotless, and Italy sprawled out on the couch at a loss for what to do next. It was too early to cook, but in his cleaning frenzy he'd m

"I'm sorry, I don't have a choice." Ludwig said as he bent down to grab the handle of his bag.
"You can't!" Feliciano pled, fresh tears blinding him.
He reached out for the German in front of him and grasped onto his uniform, entangling his fingers in the fabric. "You can't leave me! You can't!" he continued to cry
Ludwig tightened his grip on his bag. He let out a shaky breath. Why did it have to be so hard?
"I'm sorry, Italy." He said plainly, trying to keep himself calm.
Ludwig continued walking but Feliciano's grip tightened, making it slightly harder for him to continue as if nothing was happening.
"I-I promise! I'll get up extra early to train if that will make you happy! I'll try to be stronger if that's what you want me to be! I'll be anything you want me to be! Just don't go!"
Ludwig squeezed his eyes shut, trying to keep himself from getting teary eyed. He didn't realize how desperate the little Italian would be. He didn't say anyt

Your voice echoes over these hills,
Past the Marmalade skies,
And through the open expanses of my mind,
Do you remember those words,
Well Youre here again.
People sit and wonder what your like,
Were you wrong or were you right,
Is it a dream ah yes but it's all wrong
It doesnt matter much to you
The Newspaper taxi's wait to take you away,
You sit and turn and your Julia is waiting
To take you away from the storm
Close your eyes together and your gone
You walk away across the universe,
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough your open mind,
You Walk away to your newfound home,
Back Home a little girl sits alone,
Head phones on singing along to your voice,
She puts down the headphones,
28 years on- people whisper she should get a life,
Get new music get new strife....
But she still listens to your peaceful voice

The Club Abba-Maroo was filled with couples dirty dancing and people drinking cocktails and hard liquor. George sat at the bar and looked down into his glass of Jim Beam, downed the drink in one swallow, and promptly asked for another shot. The bartender poured another half-inch into the glass and stopped.
"Hey hey!" said George. "Put a little more in there, mate."
The man rolled his eyes and poured more in until the glass was half full of whiskey. George nodded and threw the liquor down his throat, barely even tasting it but feeling the burn of the alcohol run down into his chest and begin to course through his veins. Drunk. That's what he wanted to be. Drunk as a dead badger. Drunk and passed out so he couldn't feel the dull ache of the finalization of his divorce. Drunk, and perhaps dead.
"So, you're feelin' that bad, huh?" a voice said from next to him.

The Cobras, so strong and so patriotic,
Little did they know how their future would be chaotic.
They helped helped us through wars and D-Day,
Yet soon they would soon die and decay!!!
First fell The Sorrow by the hand of his lover,
It was The Boss working undercover.
Sacrifices had to be made, The Boss had to survive,
There were once six Cobras, now only five!
The Pain was next, he had to kill Snake,
So The Pain was killed in an underground lake.
He was at deaths door,
Of the six Cobras, there were now only four!
The Fear sought revenge for another,
Yet he met the same fate as his fallen brother.
The endless fear he could now see,
Of the six Cobras, there were now only three!
The End next, and his trusty bird too,
The End had a job to do,
He died as his companion flew,
Of the six Cobras, there were now only two!
The Fury, an ex-astronaut you see,
But no-one could beat snake, not even he.
He died, and it was done,
Of the six Cobras, there was now only one!

"You took yer sweet time gettin' here, son," John said in greeting when George walked through the door to his office.
That stupid poster of the woman's vagina mocked him, and he decided to ignore it. George raised his eyebrows and said: "So how do I go back to 1945?"
John nodded. "Yes, of course. Well, first: I hafta blindfold ya!"
George's eyes widened. "What?!" he shouted. But by then a hood was pulled over his head.
With the hood on he could not see, but he could hear and he could feel movement. He was obviously being taken to a place underground; the lift was going down so fast he felt a tickle of fear in the pit of his stomach. And he was going so far down that his ears popped and he had to swallow every two minutes.
When at last the thing stopped, John guided him out of the lift and onto a floor of concrete; he could feel the texture scuff on his shoes.

Her mind runs far away-
So easy when she learned to lie,
She had nothing to say.
Her hand holds tight to one last hope
And her spirit has long been broken.
But since he gave her a fraying rope
Her words are never spoken.
Hiding in her house of past
She has nothing but time.
She stares out windows of broken glass
And remembers when she was fine.
But every time the clouds come round
She worries more and more-
Could it be her fear to have found
Some peace within this storm?
As she steps out she wears her coat
But she's finally facing the rain.
She's letting loose of his old note
And crying away the pain.
