His anger and rage threatened to never cease.
In the prison of Hell, looking up at the sky,
His only soft feelings of hope began to die.
His soul rotted for years.
The inhumanity dried up any remaining tears.
A baby's cries erupted one night.
The sound was foreign and inspiring, as was the sight.
The broken man, his heart so charred,
Watched the baby grow up, his expression hard.
Hatred manifested for the mother, who brought the girl into this hell.
Didn't she know how many prisoners had tried to escape and fell?
How cruel was that mother, to bring that girl straight into death.
She'd never feel warmth and happiness on her breath.
Especially not after her mother was taken and killed.
In the commotion of the screaming struggle, the broken man's arms were filled.
He held the girl close and dashed away,
"I will protect you." She heard him say.
The guards weren't concerned with the abandoned five year old.
They had done what they'd been told.
Outfits"Harley, leave me alone." Joker clenched his teeth as he growled at the dancing woman in front of his desk. She didn't seem to notice the seriousness in his animalistic but distracted warning. She held two shirts suspended in the air by hangers, glancing back and forth between them and biting her glossed lips in thought.Outfits4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"First, tell me which one you like better!" She squeaked, holding the shirts over her body one by one. She had her "pajamas" on; a cottony black button up shirt she sewed herself with red hearts all over it, paired up with matching sweat pants. Joker kept his focus on the long pencil in his hand, sketching routes through a complex blue-print of a building.
Once the sirens rang, these doors would be locked first, then these over here.

That Voice (Star Wars - Boba Fett, Ailyn)Her earliest memory is an impossible one: that of her father. He left her, and her mother, when she was only an infant, but he is deep and secure within her memory. He is unforgettable.That Voice (Star Wars - Boba Fett, Ailyn)3 years ago in Drama More Like This
The only memory she has of her father is the memory of the night he left her forever.
What she first recalls, however, is her mother's voice, talking to him at the door: "What are you doing here?"
Her father's disembodied reply had been flat, almost mechanical, and as cold as the night outside. As a babe she had chilled to hear it, her whimpers silenced by its stark monotone. "Sintas," he said in the icy voice, "you will let me pass."
"If this is about your possessions, I threw them away."
"Did you, now? I don't think you disposed of all of them.'
There was then the sound of a slight scuffle, then a strange, inhuman visage came into her view, where it towered above her. She was lying on the floor on a thin blanket and could only stare up at him. He knelt down over her, until his blank mask filled her fi

I stare at this confining wall,
Thinking about how I lost it all.
In this defining moment I feel myself fall.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
Here I am sitting in this prison cell,
Wondering how it is I fell.
Fell from grace and straight to hell.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
At these walls my angry soul batters,
As the chain on my hands and feet clatters,
As if this prison really matters.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
Release is in my control,
No one dictates to me my soul.
As I fly from this hellish dream,
Freedom is my only scream.
Time to rise, time to succeed,
Justice and vindication my only need.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.

- The Next Morning -
The sun's rays warmed the road as the yellow taxicab drove up to the entrance of Wayne Manor. Stopping at the gate, the passenger doors opened, allowing Matt, Eddie and Charlotte to step outside. Heading for the trunk, Eddie reached for his friends' bags and handed them out to both of them, slamming the trunk shut after. As Eddie and Charlotte walked up to the gate, Matt reached into the back of his trousers and retrieved his wallet. Feeling how each note was folded, so he could tell the difference between the notes, he pulled out the amount required and handed it to the cab driver.
"Keep the change" Matt insisted, getting a grateful nod from the cab driver as he walked away. Reaching the gate, Eddie noticed a speaker attached to the wall beside it. Pressing the button beneath the speaker, he heard a static sound on the other.
"Hello?" Eddie asked, nervously awaiting a response.

A red and yellow autumn breeze,
The leaves had fallen from the trees,
Onto our golden heads.
I remember the crunch under our feet,
The winter's cold and the summer's heat,
And this is where we would meet,
When autumn came.
Everything washed with crimson red,
This is where we both fled,
And I remember you had said,
You will always protect me.
Our eyes were like blue fire,
You helped me over the rusty wire,
The leaves were a glorious choir,
When we were together.
You grew up and moved away,
As little sister, here I stay,
But I still remember autumn days.
I will always love you.

The morning comes, a pale sun brightens my room
and in shock and pain, I awake from a dark nightmare
But I understand that the void that fills this room
also occupies my heart, and it's more than I can bear
Gone are the lives of the dreaming innocent
Gone are the lives of the fighting, strong-willed men
All who followed the myth into a room for entertainment
and fell victim to the atrocities of a madman
All is gone...
Mourn the great loss of those who believed
Pray for those who face the trails of death
Despite our efforts, such pain cannot be relieved
as we watch our friends choke on their own breath
All is gone...
Yet, with all that's happened, we should not lose hope
For a hero taught us to have faith and to endure
So many are the deaths with which we need to cope
But we shall not let them become the poison to our cure
The lost lives will be remembered as heroes
Who have saved ours and taught us to live

The sea of people continued to scatter around the bright streets until multiple copies of the man appeared before them.
"I said...KNEEL!" The horned man and his copies struck down their scepters to the ground. Everyone in the center of them fell silent and went onto their knees. He smiled at the sight. "Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel."

You hesitated for a moment and then gently slipped your hand into his. He jumped a little, his cheeks turning pink, and shot you a confused sideways glance. You just flashed him a reassuring smile in response, giving his hand a little squeeze, before swiftly removing it, not wanting to make him uncomfortable.

In one all too lucid and agonizing moment, the six year old ____ was lying broken and bloodied on her kitchen floor. Her aged gaze was dulled, with no glimmer of hope like any other child her age would have. Comforting lullabies and the loving warmth of a family was replaced by unreliable meals, the constant roar of an argument and the cold, unfeeling fists that pounded her into the lifeless shell she had become.

Why can’t I just go away?
