Tale 2: Worlds in the AtticHe was very old by now. His long, white hair, uncut for fifteen years, was loosely spread all over the back of his coat. His shoulders were brought forward by age, his fingers weren't as deft as they had been. If there was one thing he was very happy for, it was that when he had started, he had used the higher shelves first. It meant he didn't have to climb steep, uncertain ladders all the time now.Tale 2: Worlds in the Attic4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
There were hundreds, thousands of jars and bottles and little tin boxes neatly stacked on the shelves, hung from the ceiling by thin chains or ropes, some small and precious glass containers brought together by ropes hanging from the ceiling like clusters of grapes or braided into garlic-like strands.
The man had wanted to be a writer, or a sculptor, or a painter, or some other sort of artist that could show all the worlds that lived inside people. A long time ago, he had understood the fact that he had no talent. It didn't affect him now. He was content to be nothing else but a keeper of w

when my hair is a mess
after you played with it on the pillow?
When the scent of my perfume
is just a remnant of the sweetness
I offered you last night?
And my nightdress is on the floor
on top of your shirt
after we undressed ourselves
to love all night?
Will you love me in the morning?
When my body is naked on your bed
entangled in the sheets?
When my skin expels its plain fragance
and my eyes look at you
with the freshness of a new day
and my hair flows untidily on my shoulders?
Will you love me in the morning

see how the brittle grass bends
as though bowing at the knee
and the wooden fencepost
with its halo of rusted iron
still longing for the lost days
when it too

surely our old gods slumber
in the womb of this land
where clouds ceaselessly tumble
toward a stark horizon
and the dirt roads
on an altar of earth

the bitter autumn frost
his mirrored eye flashing

"But I don't want to." he whines.
I stare at Jayy as he dances around the kitchen, eating Twizzlers, in a pair of booty shorts we plan on adding to the merch store.
As he does some belly dancing move, I feel my jeans begin to grow tighter.
Shit shit shit shit shit! I think frantically. He looks over at me taking a bite of another Twizzler, then his eyes trail down my body to my lap. I feel my face flush red as he smirks and walks over to me.
"Well well well, what do we have here?" he asks in a tone of voice that makes me get even harder.
He's just so fucking sexy.
His hand brushes over my crotch, and I suck in a breath, a shudder going through my body.
"Jesus boy." he growls, and I instantly know he's nearly as turned on as I am, "You're hard as a rock."

Sakura waited anxiously for her team mates, she'd been fetched by Shizune a short while ago and been told that the Hokage required to see her urgently. Upon arrival she had been told she'd be given details of the mission shortly once the others arrived. This news had shocked Sakura slightly, it was unusual for ordinary teams to be called urgently for a mission. If there was an emergency it was the ANBU who were normally sent to deal with it. Sakura rubbed her eyes sleepily, she'd had a ten hour shift at the hospital and could feel it taking a toll on her, her chakra depleted by the long days work.
After slightly amending her blurred vision she glanced at the Godaime. She looked tense and her face was frozen into a frown. As her apprentice Sakura had a good idea of what the older woman had to deal with as the leader of Konoha and the stress it must be causing her. The thr

He disappeared only to reappear at Itachi's side a moment later. He observed the scene with wonder. Itachi had the pink haired kunoichi in a lock, with a kunai held at her throat. The Kyuubi container was shaking on the ground, seemingly trying to stand but failing miserably and the younger Uchiha was stooped over a little, a deep frown set upon his face.Facade - Itachi X Sakura.

To be honest he wasn't entirely sure what to make of the scene, to him it seemed as if Itachi had everything perfectly under control, just as he usually did. He couldn't fathom why they were leaving but then again it was Itachi who was the genius, not him, so he simply resigned himself to the fact that whatever his stoic partner had in mind was the best course of action.

Her son was born to cold darkness, has never seen

Some days, what she misses most is the sky,

Now the horizon chokes on ash and she on useless words.
She never lets him see her cry when her words

Hands pressed up tight against the walls, so hard my palms hurt, all my body soaked with sweat, everywhere numb with fear but also with the knowledge that once he finds me I will no longer be numb, I will be able to feel every horrifying, disgusting thing he does to me.
I hope he kills me quickly.
I can't see. It's so dark. The lights are gone. He must have done it. I would flip a light switch, but the sound will let him know I'm here. Not that he doesn't know anyway. He always knows. Always sees me. Eveywhere. Besides, it wouldn't work. If he can make my camera go batshit insane he can certainly kill the lights.

He lies rapt in stupor.
The windows tilt from his halo, the dry
heat ticking, each death rattle measures light into
reflections- form a periscope. One eye is all

stutter along streets, gloom draped. Voices
soften and stretch, heard through memory and dreaming-
one hundred shadowy watchers meld to tarmac. Only one enters.
Yard lights convulse, scald twilit moments, birds
settling on flares. He blinks,
old as time- skin a coral of waxes, leather from his own glow. Eyes,
molten yolks still glimmer beneath lids, fat sunken. She watches,
notes of orange blossom form
a noose: all her palettes collide. She mothers
all earth- cannot . A beginning with no end, future, past.
Roots run transatlantic, languages bud- tiredness. Immortal,
he doesn't breathe.
He wakes to light dappled through glass and birch.
He was the oldest and the first,
his house heavy with rotting decades. TV

Go, now, to the high places, the thin spires
of mountains and skyscrapers
the roof of your house, tipped with snow,
and fill yourself up with the air.
Drink it in, taste it, roll it around
on your tongue, feel it settle
in the caverns of your lungs. Feel the dust
and the ice crystals and the scraps of newspaper
brush your lips, and fill yourself with them, too.
Fill yourself up with the moonlight, the frost,
the dusky rose of the rising sun,
the night, the morning, the calls of birds,
the sillhouettes of telephone poles,
the shadows of people and clouds and alley cats
that dance across the pavement.
Fill yourself with the feel of your lover's hands,
the smell of the cold wind (mint and forests)
the taste of afternoon tea, the sight
of birds pinwheeling in the snow.
You do not have to be empty.

And i know i love you unconditionally,
And i know we fight, we argue,

And i took a chance at love.

But with you,

In the simplicity of your soul.
And i hope,
