Fiction and RealitySpiraling into my own little Hell,
Nightmares coming true,
fears alive and hunting me,
Death will not come,
Tortured within my own mind,
being psychologically broken down,
There is no escape,
Hope has long since retreated,
Faith broken long ago,
My mind shattered a long time past.
This darkness never ends,
The screams echo in my head,
the pain unbearable,
I won't make it out alive,
I won't make it out at all,
It has me in its grasp,
never loosening its grip,
I am the prize
Forever here ill dwell,
Fiction has become reality.

The story of our lives.
The story of this world.
The story of death.

Nowhere to hide,
It stalks me like an experienced hunter,
It looms over my shoulder like a shadow,
It plays its game with me endlessly,
It has me caught; i cannot escape,
It has claimed many; none are released,
It leaves you cold, blank, unmoving,
It fears none and claims all,
It has me caught and my fate has come.

It controls us.
Stops us from chasing our dreams.
Causes us to live in solitude, away from potential pain and also happiness.
A fear of heights is illogical; it's the fear of falling that scares us.
A fear of water is irrational; it's the fear of drowning that consumes us.
A fear of a dangerous animal is unfounded, it's the fear of pain if we're attacked that frightens us.
Our main fear is of fear itself. This is true.
But what causes fear itself?
The unexpected, the unidentified, the unfamiliar, the mysterious, the unexplained.
This is genuine fear, for how can we not be frightened of things we do not know?

I'm having a little trouble building an environment for my character. I am a stickler for that sort of thing in writing and role playing, and since I'm in a bit of a rut I find myself unable to really come up with much. I am enchanted with the array possibilities of artistic liberties and interpretation, so I figured it was due time to pass the torch and see what others had in mind for her!

Into interrupted ideals of imagined importance.
Liberate the lived literature learned in limb.
Endure, emulate, and enlighten early,
Naught for nerves, nor nearing night,
Crave the ceaseless command clearly.
Earning enunciation for enviable ease.

Sunlight seeps through the cracks and crevices in the stone obelisks.
The light distorts as it collides with the opaque nebulas. Red. Ruby. Crimson; as the luminescence bounces off the stone cold walls. Water surrounds the conurbation of old and new; forming black shadows on the stagnant wash below.
The connecting veins of the city are full of the hustle and bustle of the mundane ways; carrying the cells of life. Antagonistic technology lives in perfect harmony, throughout the civilised metropolis. River life contrasts against the constant commotion of the city life.
Lifeless Motionless nothingness.
Factories far in the distance churn out clouds of thick, congealed soot; which covers the conurbation in black.
Down in the heart of the conurbation, the soul flows through the streets.
People walk, talk; going from place to place. As the distant incandescent wa

Neither can live without the other.
ToxicA breeze blows through the air,Toxic3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Death and decay surrounds everything,
The only living thing is the air itself,
Only the wind moves,
No green is on the trees leaves,
The ground itself is only shades of gray,
A stream of black sits unmoving on the earth,
Fish float on dark green waters,
The world is dark, dead, bleak,
Red spots splatter the ground,
Yellowish skeletons are everywhere,
The only color is the air's green hue,
The air is filled with heaviness and despair,
This is the result of our thirst for power,
Humanity will be its own undoing,
Peace never seems to last,
Always men rushing off to war,
Bombs, guns, fires, death,
Children crying for lost parents,
War touches everything and everyone,
None are left unscathed,
We are the harbringers of our doom,
We are the makers of our destruction.

Fish swim in tranquil waters,
Animals walk the still earth,
Time sits in place, unmoving, uncaring.
Birds fall dead from dark skies,
Fish float in toxic waves,
Animals lie on the burning earth,
Time sits in place, unmoving, uncaring.
No more birds fly in peace,
No more fish swim in tranquility,
No more animals walk earth's stillness,
Time sits in place, unmoving, uncaring.
Death claims more than humans,
War affects everything around us,
Most don't worry about others,
And time sits in place, unmoving, uncaring.

Falling down deeper and deeper,
No one to save me,
I am alone.
A light at the end,
Barely there; almost fading,
Reaching out for me,
I have hope.
A shadow in the light,
Hands reaching out for me,
Grasping at my soul,
I am wanted.
A heart beating again,
Almost dead but alive,
Struggling to contain itself,
I know love.

Shed a tear for the dead.
Cry for the words that are left unsaid.
Cry for the children,
They'll grow up so fast.
Cry because their innocence won't last.
Cry for your soul,
It's darkened with sin.
Cry because life's a game you'll never win.
Cry for the elderly,
Their bodies are weak.
Cry because death is what we all seek.
Cry for the lovers,
Even the ones with a ring.
Cry because love always goes with a sting.
Cry for the future,
Shed a tear for the past.
Smile because life can't forever last.

Heaven or Hell shall be our reward.

But let me say it here.
This poem is about
What I hold most dear.
A few simple words from him
Can make me feel so glad.
And when he insults me,
I don't even feel that mad.
I'm the girl who made the vow -
To never fall for someone.
My heart once woven tightly,
Has suddenly become undone.

No. Those-- those monsters-- are not my parents, he reminded himself. They killed my real parents, then kidnapped me like dingoes from folklore. Tears stung his eyes, but he wiped them away. He couldn't cry now; they would be home soon, and if he showed any signs of weakness when he confronted them, it would all be over. The gun felt heavy in his hand, the cool metal long since made warm and slick with his nervous sweat. Even if he did manage to get the drop on them, they were still trained professionals; they'd killed far more dangerous targets than a ten-year-old with a handgun, at least. In all probability, he was going to be the one to die today.
He whorled the swivel chair back to face the stainless steel desk and reopened the laptop he'd brought into the sub-basement along with the toolkit he used to bypass the securit

Sometimes I wish to love

Sometimes I just want to live
