I sometimes wonder if he loves me at all.
Long months pass in bristling silence. He
will not listen to my inept protestations,
I'm forced to realise that I can never earn his fickle love.
Yet, in the depths of an arid night the drought will be broken,
I'm swamped with more love than I can endure.
He tells me I need only be patient,
our final embrace will be sufficient cure.

Going to an alley soon to meet a man called Shady Dan
If my manic depression's in control I might dig a hole
In my backyard somewhere to bury freckles, warts and moles
Loose as a goose and ten feet tall the clouds float past my eyes
Shaken to my roots but I don't have the ducts to cry
I dropped them off in some old shop somewhere to be repaired
Now I can't find my way back even if I wanted to go there
Brimming with suspicion the fat neighbors glare in synch
The free-range monkeys pull and tug and bring me to the brink
Of having what I used to have but can't find anymore
Before I started yodeling and opened all those doors
The doors that open up to rooms with doors and then more doors
Until I'm tired from traveling nowhere and become more than bored
Even killer clowns in a drive-by spree can't wake me from my dream
And so I go to sleep in stasis and forget about every-anything

The Fable of the Stray Fox
Just like people the animals hold their own societies, but whilst we elect to live in houses within or outside of cities the animals choose to remain outside all together. Take the fox, perhaps the most cunning and certainly among the dangerous of all animals to roam the woods. The foxes reigned proud in the centre of the woods, kings and queens among the animals there, feared and respected by all who wasn't a fox.
However like the societies of man, the foxes were capable of being unjust and cruel. In the coven of the foxes was born a youngling, he wasn't a runt nor was he a high ranking male but yet he was spurned by all whom was a fox. He wasn't sure why, he didn't feel too different from all the others. He walked like they did and acted like they did yet no matter what his endeavours it only got him shame from his parents and hatred from the coven. So the young fox grew to be alone.
The years and the foxes were unkind to t

Tears running down her cheek, her hair covers the deep wounds.

The Siren - 3It was only reluctantly that Sandie went to work on Friday morning, but she had to admit that her nails looked awesome. She had settled on neon blue, and Connie had loaned her an eye shadow to match. It gave her a tiny bit of extra confidence, just enough to face a steady stream of coffee-hungry commuters. She flitted between the espresso machine and the rows of syrup bottles, filling orders while she deflected curious sympathy from her co-workers.The Siren - 33 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Connie was the worst.
"So, he didn't take anything?" she verified for the twentieth time. She popped her gum and flipped her glossy black mohawk to the other side of her head.
"Nope. At least, I haven't noticed anything missing yet."
"Nothing?" Connie asked again. She leered and winked. "Nothing at all? I mean, you don't think he snuck in and ravished your unconscious body?"
"What the hell? Where do you get this stuff?"

This particular ball gave way to spiky tips and deep depressions. She held it up and blew on it to speed its drying. When it was ready, she brought out the paints. The low parts became blue and fluid, and the spiky places turned gray. But she didn't stop there. The in between places were painted green and brown, and she came away a little and painted white puffy shapes. And then she waited.
For a long time, nothing happened. Then there was movement, but still she was disappointed. This one didn't glow the way some of her creations did. She moved in for a closer look at the globe. Perhaps she could figure out what had gone wrong.

Its white hands rested, motionless, on Its denim-clad thighs while Its expressionless eyes stared through the wall into nothing.

On the other hand, it was hard to be sure that this visitor was the same one that had shattered her window. The faces were so different, and this one was not dripping, but the voice in her head was the same. It felt the same, what few flashes she had gotten from It.

Light flooded through the large multi-paned window. Though some of the light from the sun's fresh rays didn't succeed in this, and in their place was a large, long shadow in the shape of a grid that stretched across the room. The shadow constantly changed as small pink petals from the large and proud cherry trees behind the glass panes floated on the wind towards the ground, and occasionally gently caressing the wooden frames holding the panes of glass together.
The seventeen year-old lay in his bed, the moving shadow embracing his body, his hands above his head and his eyes closed as he continued to lay there motionless in a deep slumber.
There was a quiet click as the door to his room opened, but he didn't stir. In the doorway stood a tee

This wasn't something that he did often when he was alone, but Kaoru was on his and Hikaru's laptop, listening to music while playing a computer game.
He didn't understand the lyrics of the song, but whatever they said, it spoke to him. The song was sad, somehow nostalgic, and he could see himself with his brother while listening to it. Hikaru didn't know that he had gotten into a habit of being angst-filled and depressed, though. His older brother had gotten pretty oblivious, it seemed.
He clicked on the paper airplane in the computer game and sent it flying. The game was called Flight. He had the game's happy-go-lucky music muted specifically so that he could listen to Discovery as it looped again and again, further filling him with sorrow and loneliness.
Why did he do this to himself? Why did he intentionally try and find and excuse to be sad when he could be happy if he wanted to. There was plenty of happiness

His brother was awake and mumbled something to him that Hikaru probably should have heard, but didn't.
Kaoru nuzzled into his brothers neck, at ease.
What was wrong about this?
When Hikaru was with Kaoru, it wasn't wrong. He didn't want to be with him out of a selfish vanity to be with himself. No, of course not. He wanted to be with him because he loved Kaoru. They understood each other in a way that no one else in the world could ever even comprehend.
He understood how he felt, he knew how to calm him down, he knew how to make him happy and how to tear him down at the same time.
It was that beautiful connection that made them so close.
Hikaru never knew if it was just because they were brothers. Maybe in some other life they were soul mates, and in this life they were connected so strongly that they had to be brothers.
He never knew.
Kaoru never questioned his feelings.

It was like no voice Sandie had ever heard before, bizarrely tonal, as though the speaker could not decide whether he was talking or singing. The sounds came slowly, laboriously, elongated by effort and intense concentration.
She rolled over to find the creature standing in the doorway.
