in pieces at my feet.
the world around me lifeless,
all joy lost in a flash
no place to go, no kindness
just silent, whirling ash.
My dreams have finally crumbled
the path before me bleak.
I kneel before death, humbled
hardly able to speak
he stands before me silent
an eyeless, breathless god.
he raises his scythe skyward
and plants it in the ground
I stare at him in wonder
he utters not a sound
his hollow hand extended
shrouds waving in the breeze
he gives me one last gift.
A chance at life, one final gasp
before an eternal sleep.

A loud sigh escaped your throat as you walked back from the training ground. It was dull, dreary and cold out this evening, all things that added to your current displeasure. Your body was tired and sore from a long day of training and your shaking legs were more than ready to give out.

Skinny fingers ghosted along the bark of an elderly Sakura tree like the gentle touch of a butterfly. The light breeze that whispered by, bringing with it promises of a beautiful Spring, made blossoming cherry blossoms flutter and dance as they twirled gracefully to the ground. Luminous eyes watched intently as the fragile little flowers began their journey, before resting comfortably in a bed of plush green grass. His silken kimono sashayed to-and-fro with the wind, and he let his eyes flutter shut for a few brief moments, allowing momentary bliss to wash over him. He sighed happily, opening his eyes once more, those bright, oddly-colored orbs flashing with glee.
He turned as he heard footsteps ascend towards him, and he came face-to-face with a rugged, tough looking man. No not a man; for this person was only slightly older than he himself. The boy adorned in silken attire let a smile blood across his features as the stood there, staring into each other's eye

A young boy at the approximate age of ten swore as he clawed at a pair of hands hands that were clasped firmly around his slender neck. "Please!" He begged voice feeble "let go of me!" His voice was pleading; desperate even, for he was short of breath and his vision was growing blurry. He felt tears dripping down his cheeks; his strength lacking with every passing moment. Suddenly though, he fell to the floor air rushing into his lungs as he let out a mighty gasp.
He stared up into his attacker's venomous eyes, his chest heaving and he felt fear course through his veins.

Ran blinked his multi-colored eyes open in confusion when he heard a soft vibrating sound come from the other side of the room. He was about to sit up and investigate, when he heard the light "tap, tap, tap" of fingers hitting a keyboard. He then assumed Hisoka had received a late-night text message. He rolled his eyes in frustration and pulled the blankets over his head, letting his eyes closed again. He heard another vibration, followed by that same tapping sound. Once again, he attempted to sleep once more, when there was another vibration.
He grew frustrated and pulled the blankets down slightly, subtly rolling over so as not to alarm his roommate and peered at his through narrowed eyes. His raven-haired companion looked disheveled in the soft glow of his cell phone, and the luminescent light turned his skin a ghostly white color, revealing small bags under his eyes, and blood-shot sclera. He honestly appeared to be a mess, in the raven's opinion. Not to mention his mess

I was born here. It is the only home I know, and the only home I ever will know But why? "Papa " My voice sounded melancholy and dazed as I stared up at my blonde companion. My mind was muddled and incoherent, and I could hardly breathe that was typically the case with me. I would find myself in a confused state often; and my chest would hurt, making the ability to both inhale and exhale nearly impossible. No one knew why; not even Papa. "Why am I Here?"

The blonde was tied to a chair with a large distance separating him and the mermen. He was unable to get closer to them and attempt a rescue because the chair was connected to the ship.

He tilted his head to the side, the wild black locks falling daintily to the side, brushing his shoulders.
