Angie tried rising to her feet unsuccessfully, her left leg throbbing, the bullet still lodged inside of it. The pain shot through her whole body as she put weight on it, immediately collapsing back down on the ground with a hopeless cry.

Closing the door, Angie let the crisp breeze brush her face as she got out of her doctors car, who drove her to work every other week. Her heels clicked against the pavement as she walked around the car to where Derek was standing. One hand in his pocket, he held his keys in the other, locking the doors before returning the keys and the other hand to his pocket. He turned his gaze toward her, took in a big breath, and let it out, smiling, before they walked inside together.
The doors at Caduceus opened for the famous surgical duo and closed behind them, as they walked down the halls, greeting their coworkers on another Monday morning. Still slightly tired, Derek walked over to the elevator and pressed the up button, closing his eyes while he waited for the doors to open. His eyes snapped back open immediately as he heard Angie let out an annoyed sigh.

It had seemed innocent enough. Angie had decided to spend her break outside and she took a nice, brisk walk around the perimeter of the building. The fresh air and sunshine put her in a good mood, as she rarely got to experience either. She stretched her arms over her head and let out a content sigh.
Ah! I cant believe it!
The sudden cry of one, Tyler Chase, brought her from her revere. She looked up to see him looking out a window as a bundled packet of papers fell and settled among the vegetation below. Derek appeared next to him and placed his hands on the window sill, leaning over slightly to see where the packet had fallen. How in the world did you managed to drop that? he asked, sending Tyler an inquisitive sideways glance. The latter said nothing more than unintelligible grumbles as he collapsed over the window, his arms d

I gulped, shifted in the chair, and wiped my sweaty palms on my jeans. I didn’t want to relive it, but the officers needed it for the police report. One with graying hair and a kind expression sat directly across from me--his name tag read “Sergeant Cormac”, while an officer with a steely expression whose name tag I couldn’t read sat off to the side. I swallowed hard one more time. “Yeah.”
“I know this is hard, Oliver, but we need as much detail as possible.”
“It’s Ollie,” I murmured, then closed my eyes for a second, forcing myself to go back to this morning.
“I knew something was off about Pete the minute I saw him this morning. I don’t know why I didn’t ask. I just… I was busy, you know? Worried about homework and a bunch of other dumb school stuff just like always.” I ran a hand through my hair. “But I was already la

Such a strange person.
So fearsome and yet so relieving.
Lately death has become a friend of mine,
He and his pals have been close company with me.
Silence is the only person I really like talking to,
The ring of her voice is so soothing.
Isolation is the only company I need,
He holds my hand and guides me around.
Depression is a great friend to me,
She is always there giving me a hug whenever I need it.
These friends are the best ones I know,
I have other ones but they aren't as great.
Happiness for example is always leaving.
She is great when she is around but she doesn't like to stick around.
Outgoing is such a social guy,
But he doesn't seem to have time for me,
Always out partying with someone else.
Sound is just plain annoying.
She never knows when to be quiet,
Always blabbing away or making noise to drown out Silence.
Now these are all just friends of mine,
My best friend who I mentioned earlier is Death,
Who gets along with everyone.
Because he is always around whenever

Cut out the hate

Apologies are empty
My words are lost in deaf ears

This frame I live in can only hold me up for so long
I'm breaking inside and I'm falling apart
Is no one here to hear my silent cries?
I want to escape from this place
And the only way out isn't a choice
The doors are locked the key is lost
I can't see
The darkness is overwhelming
My only sanctuary is when I have lost myself
Far away on a dirt path leading to nowhere
Where the trees change colors and talk to me
And there is nothing I can do
This road is going downhill
And I can't seem to run fast enough
I'm falling to fast
And there is no one to catch me
I'm losing myself
This time I can only go so far.

Limbs have lost motion
Mind running wild
All emotions ripped out
Every feeling cut loose
Rip off the coat
Stand out in the rain
Isolated in company
Lost within the crowd

Gifts with every turn
Close eyes fall asleep
Dream of deaths not too sweet
Dancing in the wind
Singing to the sky
Let it all go.
Good NightWhat is this feeling like? Helplessness? As my soft tears splashed onto my quivering lips I tasted the familiar saltiness, driven from the source of the midpoint of surrender and hate.

You turn now, a gentle kind, who watches me take the first steps of your path. You sense my first stray and lead me back in another way that sets me apart from everyone. How can you see my emotions through my skin yet not sense the slightest bit of the longing I feel when you are near.
I know you will never see me that way, and I could never explain not with a thousand words what pleasure you bring to me. Each time I see Your eyes, Your hair, Your life. I wish to rethink the last words I say before you go to bed. As I texted you "good night", I made a huge typo, I meant "I love you."

'I never meant to let you down.'
Draven lifted a stray curl of his wife's hair from her face. She smiled in her sleep as if knowing he was there. As silently as he could, he leant over the bed and kissed her softly on the cheek.
'I've tried everything.'
Rising slowly, as quietly as he could manage on the wooden floorboards, Draven retreated from the bed. By the fractured light from the shutters he made for the bedroom door. The walls of the house were thin and he heard a creak from the neighbouring room.
'Best be off before Kale wakes.'
Reaching for the door behind him, still facing the bed and his sleeping wife, Draven paused. Drawn, painfully drawn like poison from a wound, he found his eyes stray to the chest at the foot of the bed. Shut away from the world under key and lock, he linge

There was no lightning, in fact, it was too quiet for her liking, but she kept walking through the narrow street. Lamppost's lighting her path as she listened to the rain.
But, it was calming, a stark contrast to the feeling, of being followed.
She broke into a slight run, and swivelled into the alley.
A fence put a halt to her movement and she slowly took the last few steps to reach up to it, grasping the small gaps as she leant her forehead against the cool metal, slowly sighing.
The silence of the rain lasted a while, only broken by someone hesitantly stepping into the alley.
She recognised the voice.
An old friend.
"I think," she slipped her hands away from the fence and sluggishly turned to him, "I'm a little lost."
He leaned against the wall, casually sliding one hand into a pocket. "I'm surprised to see you here."
"Yeah, I am too." She said, as she looked straight up, catching droplets with her eyes closed. "I need directions."

The sudden torchlight from the open door caught Draven full in the face. Laid bare in the night, with nowhere to hide, he shaded his eyes with a hand and stepped inside.
'Even having to ask that is answer enough.'
"Ah, but I see ya've changed ya mind!" the blacksmith's tone was neither gloating nor bitter, but Draven still swallowed a reproach.
'Forgiveness can be taken back...but what about when you go back on a promise? Back to the old ways.'
He more felt rather than saw the huntsman brush past him, still blinking smudges from his eyes. The sweltering heat of the forge forced Draven back a step, the breeze tugging at his shirt. Knuckling the felling axe, Draven rallied his wits.

'If the others could see me now...'
Withdrawing into the folds of his cloak, Draven caught his head nodding. Eyelids drooping, each blink taking longer than the last, he fought the waves of exhaustion that beat down upon him like the sun. The sun itself was nowhere to be seen, and the moon held sway, cornering Draven with an army of stars, offering him terms of surrender in sleep.
'Would they laugh?'
The sound of his own half-choked snore jerked him awake. Muffling the sound in the crook of his arm, Draven throttled the axe haft in his grip. The rough wood bit into his palm, though callused as he was, the splinters offered little respite from the temptation to sleep.
'Would they offer a hand?'
His leg twitched, and his whole body snapped to, alert. Clarity, though sharp in the bitter cold

The hours stretched long, all the longer for Draven counting their passing. Be it heartbeat, breaths, footfalls, or the tallies in the Tax Collector's ledger the day had been measured in wearing patience. Made all the worse for the lack of event, stifled by the heat, choked by the dust, Draven had all but torn his bandana after wringing it out again and again.
'I've been more of a nuisance than the Tax Collector.'
Draven squinted after the slight figure, a hand shading his eyes from the all-too-bright, dusking sun. The Tax Collector was an oddity, hardly worth the bother of notice let alone escorting. For a man of his disreputable profession, Nicolas as he had introduced himself, was a far vial of poison short from the serpents that snatched coins like eggs from a nest.

To lay your heart out
In the rain and watch it
Soak with despair.
As you wait for that break
In the clouds,
For a beam of light
To revive your numb mess.
You wait for warmth and comfort.
For cherished moments,
And endless gleeful joy.
And the rain does cease.
The clouds part and the sun shine.
And for a few seconds
Believe in hopes and dreams,
Of butterflies and blood red roses,
Of starry nights and waning moons.
That love is here to stay,
To hold you hand
And beat one with your heart.
And you're happy.
But you forget of the seasons.
That eternal painful yet beautiful cycle
That somehow sustains us.
Then you're reminded.
When the rains beat down on you again,
When the floods wash your heart away,
When the hail comes and the lightning strikes.
You are reminded that
Is to be human
And the sun will shine once again.
