Drowning The Caged DoveYou used to be alive to me. Once upon a time your skin was warm and touchable. When I held you I used to be able to feel your heart beating in your chest. Now if I dare to touch your rigid body there is nothing but stony skin to brush against mine. I gave up on you.Drowning The Caged Dove4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Recollections of when we first met eat at the corners of my mind. You were as nervous as a caged dove, ashamed to fly, ashamed to sing to me, to kiss me. The last time I kissed your lips they were cold and nearly lifeless. No, not nearly, I know that now. They were lifeless. There was nothing of you left. I ran to you too late. I couldn't save you.
Your eyes are blank and staring. Not dreaming, not aspiring, not wanting, not giving. Just gone. Just nothing. Gazing forever at the black ground above you, the black ground weighing down on you. Six feet of lies and betrayal.

It had been a few weeks from my episode though it feels like it was only hours ago. I can still hear their taunting voices repeating like a broken record in my head. I've spent these couple of weeks pretending to be sick. I've been eating food I know will make me throw up, overheating myself, everything I can think of to keep myself from having to go back there. My mother arranged with Brenan's dad for him to come over after school and bring me my homework, and in the morning swing by to pick up the things I completed. My mother said that "even though you're sick, you have to do your school work instead of just lazing around doing nothing." It burned my skin a bit that she was making me do the work even though I was only pretending. I couldn't help but think that her reputation was more important than me, which was probably true. It's about 3:35pm and Bren will be here any minute with today's wonderful assignments for me to complete by tonight. There was a, 'knock-knock-knock' on

For me I was lucky, the infection has not reached my hometown yet and has given me time to prepare for the worst. People from the south were evacuating to the north towards the Safe Zone for protection by the army. I called my brother Leo about my plan of holding out while the infection passes. He agreed and moved into my apartment with some supplies. He lives by the Airport down south from me. He never stops complaining to me how much he misses the buildings, free running the rooftops with his friends known as a Concrete Jungle Runners. Leo took free running to the extreme by duck taping his trouser legs and his hooded sweatshirt arms. Leo just told me it stops his clothes flapping and catching onto things when he runs along. Yeah right.

Well, expect with the circumstances and all. I stare blankly into the eyes of my heartbroken friend. She has been unable to move since she walked in.

I hear my self protest,
but I'm pushed on a bed,
at least I think that's what it is,
as thoughts of fear fill my head.
I thought I screamed no,
as my clothes were torn off,
I tried to fight back,
but my motions were lost.
I still felt that drug,
plaguing my system,
and my assaulter crawled upon me,
slowly taking me as their victim.
My innocence and pride,
washed away like wet paint,
cleared from the pavement,
as my emotions began to shake.
I was left there on that bed,

and my assaulter vanished,
without the slightest drop of guilt.
I tried to cope,
as I went home that evening,
but as time went on,
I hardly found myself breathing.
Anxiety and depression,
got the best of my soul
my life just shattered,
it came crashing down as a whole.

A cavern of rocks jutted out from the sea where water pooled, lapping the sides of the slate coloured rocks. Queen Ariel of Denmark adjusted her blanket on one of the slippery rocks with a strained smile. After moving to the land, she had forgotten how much noise she and her sisters could make together.
The six mermaids chatted eagerly amongst themselves in the brightly lit cavern. Ariel looked at the ceiling and remembered her grotto. This place looked almost exactly like it, except for its width and height. She brushed aside her fiery waves and smoothed her favourite dress, the one she wore when her father changed her into a human for the final time. It still fit, miraculously, and she kept her fingers crossed that Melody or Adela would want to wear it someday.
Attina shot Ariel a glare. “Ariel, are you day dreaming again?”
“When is Ariel not daydreaming,” Arista interrupted. The others laughed and Ariel grinned from her not-so-high perch. It seemed she also f

However, she forces herself to attend the party because she doesn't want to let any of her friends down, especially Kid. In the meantime, she gives Kid a special gift that was full of gratitude and love. And oddly enough, it heals her illness.

The sky was filled with grey wisps of dark clouds, the air crisp as it caressed her pale skin. She swayed in the breeze, her fingers cold as she watched the leaves beneath her feet, their colours golden and burnt red, touching brown and a light orange. They were broken by her steps and piled high over the muddy ground.
Her hair whipped around her face, catching on her parted lips that were a faint shade of pink. She did not reach up to remove the caught hairs, but left them to do as they pleased. Her hat was beginning to slip from her head although she did not adjust it back over her ears.
Dirt was smeared over her cream colour coat where she had tripped and a speck of blood was evident on her knee where she had scrapped her skin and broken her jeans from the fall. The tear marks down her cheeks were more prominent now in the cold as they turned to ice.
The branch creaked in the wind as spare leaves rustled on the trees, the rope straining slightly as she swayed in the breeze. Her last
Our Kingdom ComeI have a theory.Our Kingdom Come2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My theory is that when you die, as your life flashes before your eyes and your body puts up its last pitiful fight for life before shutting down, you realize what your purpose was, and that's when you know who you truly are.
It's not exactly testable, which means professional scientists wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole, but I think in my condition a little baseless theory ain't the worst I could do.
I'm 25 years old and dying.
I'm going young, I know. I can't begin to tell you how many people are disappointed that I'm clocking out early. Can't say I wanted it is this way. If I could go back in time and prevent the accident from happening I would. But of course I can't, so all I'm left with is this: this hospital bed, these tubes, these slow, labored breaths, these thoughts. All these things that don't matter much because I can't take them with me.
Then again, what can I take?
What actually goes with you when you die?

Dear who I wasI’m sorry for everything I put you through. I’m sorry that I over-analyzed everything and spent far too much time thinking about things that were really black and white. I don’t know why I did it, I only know that I did. And I wish that I could relive who you were with what I know now – it would make so much difference to what you’ll become. I cannot apologise enough for destroying the body you had and I can’t believe I ever thought there was anything wrong with it. You didn’t know what was going on at the time and there was no way you could have known, but you find out in the end, even if it is too late. I'd tell you what to do and what not to do, but I doubt you’d listen; you always did have difficulty listening to anything other than what you wanted to hear.

I looked at his blue eyes. They poured satisfaction as he gave me the news. For some reason, my chest felt heavy.

He took a sip and offered, but I declined it politely.
"So, __________, you still want to bear his children?"
"I never did!" I growled. Francis chuckled, and placed the jar back into the basket.

'Night'"Night" is the longest running show in the universe.'Night'11 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
It started off quite a few years ago, and while some of the original cast have retired, cooled off, (and in one embarassing incident, mostly hushed up, collapsed in on themselves to form a naked singularity, although some of her co-stars were heard to mutter that she'd ALWAYS been a singularity in one form or another) for the most part, it's still going strong.
It was hard going at first. The first billion years was pretty dead. However, to be fair, there hadn't been much in the way of advance advertising, no posters anywhere, so really, you couldn't expect much. The rat stagehands that hang the stars in the firmament were philosophical. Nobody saw them anyway, so the fact that nobody saw the show at all didn't weigh on them much. The rest of the cast, encouraged by this example of rodent stoicism, went on with the show.
After a coupla billion years, however, it started to wear on them. People stopped scanning the seats every night l

She told me she wanted to always smell of the balmy salt water that always crashed on the shore.
She told me that she wanted to visit the Titanic, and the bottom of the deepest trench.
She told me that it had been her dream to see what it was like under all that water.
I told her that it wasn’t normal to be buried out at sea.
I told her I would miss how she always smelled of lavender after the rains crashed on our meadow.
