AnimalsOne Of These Days, on a day in Summer '68 when the Fat Old Sun was visible in the Great Gig In The Sky, in a place called San Tropez, there were some Pigs On The Wing. They were On The Run from Arnold Layne, a Fearless member of the Mudmen. Arnold had told them there was an Eclipse coming, and all the Dogs of the Crumbling Land would receive Brain Damage from it. This would cause them to Keep Talking, and as Time would wear on, their chatter would turn into a Violent Sequence, which would prevent the Pigs' future Embryo from Learning To Fly like their race did. What's more, their power for Coming Back To Life would be lost, too.Animals4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

And noone would say why or what
We used to walk through our whole day
In sunshine of the midnight black
All the world is upside down
Princess goes to save the prince
A unicorn without a horn
We can finally
See the scream of butterfly
The day that will never come
I'll wait for it and it'll be done
Since I left our dull, ill street
And went down the midnight path
Where black is white and white is black.

Stop talking about differences between girls 'n boys and just treat me like a human being. My pussy is the only thing that makes me a girl.And even if I don't feel like 100% girl or just entirely flat 'feminine' one (not that I feel like male in a female body, in fact that kind of things doesn't really matter too much for me) does it mean you have to make fun on me or saying all those ridiculous stuffs? No.
Oh, by the way. Note that it's ME and this is MY point of view. I don't want to say that gender isn't important at all but I think there are too many things that are dependent on it and there are too many silly stereotypes about both men and women. And those who feel 'other' in any way like lesbians, gays or transsexual ones.
However, it doesn't matter much to ME as well as my orientation.
(Well I see this thing is getting less and less concise... I'm really sorry, dolls)

"How long will she be asleep for, Ring?"
"I don't know. I wish I did, but only time will tell. Until then, we can only wait."
A pause, "She looks cold."
"Maybe she is."
Another pause, "Ring, what happened to her?"
"Well," the man, apparently named Ring, sighed, "I think she would prefer it if I weren't to tell."
"Is it bad?"
"Yes. It was."
Again, another pause. Maybe he was bad at conversations. I couldn't be sure. Maybe these voices were all in my head, anyway. I couldn't see their faces. What could I see? Nothing. The darkness. A slightly pinkish hue in a sea of black, small speckled dots. I supposed my eyes were closed.
So tired. The voices were fading.
"She hasn't moved at all since she got here. Is that normal?" a concerned voice. I had gotten familiar with these two voices. There were two of them. Both were male.
"It's completely fine," this man's name was Ring. It was easy to differentiate the two voices because Ring's voice had a reverberating bass masked over something I assum

We are the 'others'
Who isn't equal
Is monster or dies!
We're other than them
The 'normal' and 'sane'
If they don't fear you
You're already dead!
It's not our fault
But we have no choice and
It's their problem, now
Why shall we be just
Like you, poor, poor sheep?
As I just told you
Right at the beginning...
Make them sheep listen
Let them ask you for
Anything, let them fear
Or they'll destroy you
Gotta be strong
Have no leniency, they don't want
to get it
Sad, sad little one

A glistening jewel,
A shiny gem
To us you are
What you were then
Your talent stayed
But your looks strayed
We did not care
What you became
Several smiles and noisy occasions later brought you to us as you were not long ago. The aftermath of one mind-changer dropped you back to earth as a fragment of the living, feeling, breathing creature you used to be. The eyes that were once bright and held mischief and wisdom, darkened and dulled. The hands that crafted silken rainbow threads of music, were slowed by nature and now are stopped altogether.
Echoes of your talent and ability still radiate around with us to this day, and your presence on the planet with us is not forgotten. We remember your examples and ways, and we hold them close now as you rest with ease and watch us honor your name still.
Rest In Peace

Sternwick CH- 7 His Butler Takes a Stand
Dreven and Jerome Baron headed towards the clock tower's outer wall gate ignoring the stares and whispers from the gate guards and Bonders watching them. Dohn straightened up as the two brothers approached him.
"We are here to see the mayor." Dreven said in a low emotionless voice. He tilted his head down so his black hat could shade his eyes and face from the bright sun. His dark hair slid over his pale cheeks while he stood hunched over his black cane.
Dohn, the chief of the Bonders approached the two brothers. "Of course, right this way." He gestured for them to walk towards the gates.
Jerome appeared from behind Dreven and staggered towards one of the guards whom stood proudly at the front gate wearing his new uniform. The guard tensed up and stood still as Jerome lifted his hand and walked his slender fingers up the blue uniform. He touched each shiny brass button

Cedric, First Meeting 1 of 3The Summer's day was bleak, humid and grey, as the weather had been for the past week. It would rain soon. I sighed and shoved my hands into my pockets, walking down the streets. It was a dull afternoon and the people of France had obviously decided to keep indoors instead of melting in the sweltering heat.Cedric, First Meeting 1 of 34 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The heat didn't bother me. It never did.
I sighed as I turned the corner, nearing closer to my trailer. I just wanted to get back inside and have a good long drink. It was the only thing on my mind and it was going to stay that way for a very long time.
I glanced up, and out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a small figure in the gutter. I froze and widened my eyes, trying to get a better look. It was a boy, hugging his knees tightly, and sobbing. Sobbing wildly with his whole face red and blotchy from the tears. He raised his small head and stared at me with huge glistening eyes with a small spark of hope in his face.
I panicked in my mind. Shit. So he was looking at me. Do I stop

It was raining again, April showers as it were. Seemed to rain a lot these days not that Big Macintosh minded at all. The rain better suited his mood. There was a calming effect to the steady cadence of it on the roof, the way it fell on the already sodden grounds. He was cold sitting on the front porch while the storm circulated around the farm. The cold felt good, too. It reminded him that he could feel something other than pain. It had been a year already and still there was a dull ache in his heart, a wound to his spirit that would never heal. It hurt every day like it had in the beginning.
The door of the house opened and Applejack came out. She had a blanket between her teeth that she draped around Big Macintosh's withers. Then she took up a seat beside him and they sat together in silence. She sat with him like this a lot in the past year. They spoke less to each other than they had their entire lives, yet somehow they'd grown closer. He knew that without the support of his sist

Sternwick CH 5- The Baron Brothers
Dohn Gerdan hesitantly stood in front of the dark oak doors outside Jame's office. He had pressed his blue uniform and shined his gold buttons and badges until he could see his reflection in them. He had a low voice and a large bushy graying mustache that he was quite proud of. As chief of the town's Bonders it was his duty to maintain order and arrest anyone who causes any trouble or disobeyed the mayor's laws. The troublemakers are usually caught and taken to prison without a problem, but yesterday was different. He and his men searched all night for the protester from yesterday's announcements, but he was nowhere to be found.
"What's your report Gerdan?" James nervously asked as the head Bonder stepped in.
"Sir we have searched the entire town but unfortunately, he hasn't been found."

Red is the sunrise saluting the sea;

Red is the color of life, love, and war,

Upon my coat lapel; what is it for?
Does it go with my face, my eyes, or hair?
A fashion statement from some time before?
Perhaps it's filled with antioxidants
To keep at bay some health-related qualm.
Or if I get into some accidents,
I'll eat it as a means of keeping calm.
Well, yes, and no. It's really there because
If certain deadly poisons fill the air,
It will turn purple from the green it was
And let me know those chemicals are there.
And after that, what will I do? Who knows?
If nothing else, I'll eat it, I suppose.

Chapter 5: The City of Freaks and the Ax-Handed Boy
There are one or two troubles with dreams, ladies and gentlemen: dreams are beautiful but could become the downfall of some. Dreams tell the dreamer of fantasies that can corrupt ones imagination what with the absurdities that can swim through them yet at the same time could cure insanity. They told what was real, what was unreal, what was safe, what was dangerous warnings. The possibility of being blinded by the fantasy of a dream is grand but there is a humongous percentage doubting that as well; a win-lose subject, I should say. But, as some times happen, the logic of many could become blindfolded by their denial that what they stumbled across was just totally impossible.
Let us take a haunted dimension as our example.
"This is not real this is not real " Sophia repeated to herself unwillingly as she remained still right at the archway to the city. Body frozen,

beyond the weed fields
beneath the dying tree
with flowers it never yields
I am the rag doll
covered in charcoal dust
lying beneath the bed
where a toy car rusts.
I am your favorite song
from when you were seventeen
but now you're fifty-seven
and you only liked me for three months, anyway.
I am the friend you had
before you found out my secrets
before you moved away and found
better things to do.
I am the shed
skin of the forgotten
there is no sentimental
value on my surface.
I am the dolled up
sins of the wrought and
damaged; you do not forget me
but you still toss me away
I am the unsung
song of the villains,
the selfish, the lonely
the betrayed and insecure
I am the friendly
warning of your future,
a cold forgetful satin sheet
of eyes that you "forgot" to meet.

Is like having a lot of friends.
They are all different to one another
and they all have their own little back-stories.
Some are related to each other, joined by working together
Or other friendships from youth which you weren't there to see for yourself.
You might like one more than the other,
but it's always them who's there for you
to offer good emotions every day.
But music is more reliable than people
because there isn't the need for eye contact
or the need to find something to make conversation about.
There are no awkward silences with a song.
