Dancing in the Rain The rain made a steady beat of droplets on her umbrella as the girl walked down the worn path. Her bare feet squished gently in the mud and more than once she almost tripped; she started running then. She could see where the path led out of the forest; that was where she was heading. Voices broke through the silence of the rain; they were yelling, calling out the girl's name. She stopped at the edge of the forest; she turned and looked back down the path, looking for someone. Seeing no one she dropped the umbrella and ran into the meadow. Rain instantly soaked through her black dress. She was drenched in seconds but she didn't seem to care. Laughing the girl began to twirl in circles slowly getting faster and faster, leaning her head back to feel the rain on her face, and throwing her arms wide. Just then a boy appeared in the meadow; he was also soaked and he looked relieved to see the girl. She stopped twirling and looked at him smiling, her dark hair clDancing in the Rain4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

i blink back the tears
with a shaky hand i pick up the lipstick
forcing myself to look in the mirror
i see her
tangled matted down hair
bloody chapped lips
zombie grey eyes
cracked rough skin
i used to be beautiful
now im here
in this tiny room
i bite my lip
the cracked mirror showed a tearsteaming down the girls face
i shut my eyes
so no one can be let in
they cant get into my mind
thats the only place im free
i feel my shaking hand rise
i feel the soft brush of the slanted
tip of the lipstick zigzaging on my face
over my eye
under my nose
through my lips
cross my brow
i open my eyes
i cry uncontrollably
shreik a murderus cry from my frail body
slam my fists into the mirror
whatch the shards fall to the floor
i am beautiful.

i am restrained by adjectives, heart
alone with the vistas, scenarios in my head
everything i can't share;
the imagery i can only hint at
intensities of hope and color,
fictional nineteenth-century airships on
fields of golden wheat,
the touch of skin and whispered thoughts of lovers,
fury at inexpressible injustice,
visions of a future (implausible, but beautiful) with sweeping expanses of
inch-thick glass holding back the cold of space,
surgical tubing and glistening scalpels under bright white lights,
imagined anxiety in the minds of Russian spies
and maybe, what i feel
you see, i am not the shadow of my former self
nor am i some brighter duplicate
but something in between: a glowing ghost
with a clearer view and
no freedom, a thousand images
and self-imposed impossibility
have you ever seen me burn a notebook? did you
know? how many days in a row
i've tried and failed to convey the emotion and stiffening glory
seeping through my limb

Why did you fucking made me like this!
I want the thunder to blind my eyes
Why do you let me see all of this!
I want the earthquackes to take my body away
Why did you give me a body like this....
Sitting there crying in the corner...no one cares for me.
That much I know
I sit there...thinking of the things my mind let's me see...the things that wonder in there, the things that no one should see...And my eyes just help out my mind...letting it expand more. The fantasy world taking over.

Numbers stretched away into infinity...
They were there at his touch, in his idleness they were like the stars in the void he so often saw: islands of light, incomprehensible in their piecing glow, only gentle in their distance. These things stemmed from the world, drawn out by living minds and scuplted with living hands through centuries of history. Those motes of dust, tracing lines as complex or simple as the dynamics of solar plasma or lumbering orbits of worlds, were numbers. In the cold, dim silence, they were salvation and sustainence for a mind otherwise locked in observation of the glinting traceries laid out before him.
Set in a frame of steel, light formed line, segment, and grid. That single monitor displayed what the whole monolithic complex filtered and rendered into an endless waterfall of numbers and data. They cascaded across the screen as swift as droplets hurled by rapids, none missed by th

Everyday I'm happy, I smile, I even laugh
But I know whats inside is taking its last breathe
I try and try to fight back but I can't help
No one sees the pain in my eyes
They see my crystal-clear blue eyes that say nothing
I look around to find nothing not even myself
I, myself, is nothing anymore it has vanished
Vanished where only spirits see what I lost
I close my doors so many times to my room
The feeling of shutting it, is relieving
Almost as if I have a secret hidden in here
I wish not to share with anyone
For it would ruin my last piece of hope
The last piece I've been holding onto
feels pointless to hold on longer
I have yelling coming from all directions
I close my eyes for a moment
I imagine me somewhere free
Free of everything I never had...

Never thinking to douse the flames

How dawns the morn so very bright and bold
that night's dark face can only turn away;
and all our dreams in sunlit skies are sold
as eventide gives pardon to the day.
She feels the cloak of dreams unclasp their sway
and fading softly spun into the gold,
that she will rise from sleep and make her way
ere morning grows another second old.

But I know they are there.
They sprout from my back.
And they let me soar.
As clear as the purest water.
Stronger than mountain stone.
They lift me and my spirit.
You cannot see them.
I fold them or spread them wide.
They feel the touch of the sun.
You may doubt what I say.
But I know they are there.
To me they shimmer and shine.
Scales that reflecy my soul.
You may touch them but never know.
They sprout from my back.
Up in the sky.
Among mountain tops and clouds.
The wind rushes over them.

In a setting that is secretly bound
Nobody knows it is there
from far above its a forest bare
inspiring greenery see miles afar
children inside are mentally scarred
captured and tortured with no ending limit
a child cries but they make no move to quit
two sick men fulfil there dreams
while tearing children apart seam by seam
one little girl cries day and night
never in months has she seen sunlight
wanting her mother to hold her close in her arms
taking her from this nightmare and out of this harm
her door unlocks; she scowls above
to see a tall man wearing black gloves
she cowers away, knowing what's to come
if only she could get one chance to run,
one more beating is all her frail body could survive
one that cold winters night, that twisted man took her life
nobody will know what happened in there
But that little girl was happy, that the angels did care.

I'm okay with that
I've accepted my fate to die
But. . .
I have a question
An important one
Where will you send me?
Heaven or Hell?
I sinned and I know that
But you made me weak
It's not all my fault
The demon offered me promise and power
I wanted the power
I needed the power
And I needed the hope that came with it
So I took it
I made a deal with the devil
And now you're the only one
Who can save
I've made my peace with life
The power was great
For a while. . .
But it drained my strength
And stole my beauty
Now I wear this bag
To hide the ugliness
That burst out of me
Please save me
I'm all alone now
No one loves me anymore
But you still love me
And now all I want

The small words we do communicate is not enough
To turn my heart right side up again
The words spoken are more than heartless, there..
Your heart has turned stone-cold..
The touch of my hand doesn't quiet you..
What have I done to deserve this bitterness
You lost your soft sweet tone
All I have left of you is your face
If that goes..
My heart won't know what to do
My memories will over-fill with you...
Of the times we were so innocent..
So new to the world..
To do great things that turn into love
Please come back to full fill my heart
Which was always yours, first

The Judgment HourDown, down, down, I traveled through the Duat. Book of the Dead in hand I searched for the Hall of Truth. I knew my hour of judgment was near but somehow I couldn't bring myself to be afraid. I had been a proud and fearless man in life and I would continue to be so long after. Reaching the bottom I crossed the great lake of fire. I could see the black marble of the hall up ahead, towering over the underworld like the great castle it was. Finally, approaching the great structure, its doors open like a colossal demon's maw prepared to swallow me whole, I began to feel the first tendrils of dread creep up my spine. No, I would not fear this, I would be strong and proud like the man I was in life. Stepping through the large doors I walked down an enormous, dark hallway with high ceilings before reaching the even larger central room. Sitting in the center was a large scale and at its base, a colossal creature of the likeness of nothing I had seen before, asleep.
