Our characters have discovered all worlds have merged together as one. It created chaos and disruption, even in time, some people were already here for months, while others still keep appearing now. One thing is certain, most souls have disappeared and all the places you once called home lay in ruin.
Our characters went through a lot of hardship, they battled monsters and spirits and animals that were consumed by evil forces.
But then something happened, a few chosen people saw a strange vision. Fate, the deity that had created all worlds spoke these words.
"Children... my dearest children...
Harm has befallen upon thee...
Hear my words... for I am fading...
The worlds have merged as one... yet I was shattered...
All living souls are perishing...
My children... you must find me... find the elements... fi
Asphyxiai am a summary of pain;Asphyxia4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
i am nothing more
than bruised bones
and tender tendons.
give me morphine,
give me novacaine;
give me anything
except that sad smile
that took your goodbye by the hand
and led you away
where i couldn't reach you.
you left, you left me here
empty and alone
and i still remember the warmth
that was your hand in mine.
God, how you broke me.
i am hollow:
inspiration at its worst.
i am full
of trembling words
and tender pains
into the light
of examining angry
i am empty,
yearning and angry,
as i wait
for your sea
to fill me up.
i am a medical emergency,
stretched and thin.
my seams pull apart
with the exquisite precision
of agony and apathy,
and all the king's horses
and all the king's men
don't know how to
put me back together again.
i am slipping back
into old-age habits.
i put too much sugar
in my bitter morning coffee
because it reminds me
of the sweetness
that was the taste
of your lips;
i inhale and exhale
in my empty, cold bed

being called "whore", nicknamed "insane".
The case closed, feelings buried,
emotions that rose are no more carried!
If you asked me directly:
"What is love?"
I'd answer: "It's a lily
in the Heavens above."
If you asked me wistfully:
"And the lily, does it exist?"
I'd answer: "Don't be silly!
It's illusive, just like a mist.
You sense there's nothing in there,
even though eyes tell you otherwise,
somehow you push yourself to dare
to enter that place where love lies.
Walking through the labyrinth
of white curtains weaved of lies,
you fight a war you cannot win
that makes insane from the wise.
The mist reshapes through time and tears,
You eventually see the feels were mock!"
My man's got a heart like a rock
cast in the sea.

And shelve it with every book ever burned.
I want to build a library
And invite in all the pastors and preachers and woebegone popes-
Send them wandering through the breathing books,
Willingly lost in the dust motes and the cinnamon paper and the quiet conversation of
Wilde and Shakespeare and Darwin and Plato.
I want to build a library
For all the puppets and their strings.
And there, in that long-awaited Church of Thought
Let them decide

A shadow to swallow the brightness of light.
A flower to bloom under guidance of fear,
Death's colour to draw ever so near.
A fire to burn the ashes of greed,
A flame to flicker just to mislead.
A heart that lives a passion of desire,
Blood thirst soul that dies to conspire.
A nightmare to eclipse the silver moon,
A fear to darken the early noon.
A painting to portray the death to come,
Abyss to show what this world has become.

Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea, it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio. In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified, and reserved, yet affable and courteous; they sometimes possess penetrating eyes which make their shyer companions feel naked and defenseless before them.

The flower of midnight blooms
As the wind will sway the trees.
But my corpse will dangle helpless
As it is blown by the breeze.
Feel the prick of final judgement
As I am cast into the flame.
Born again into this world;
Where my life is just a game.
I think and try to remember
But the night is simply cold
I return to the ancient tree
where once my soul was sold.
I gather the rope and ladder
while the moon is shining bright.
I kill myself again;
In the quiet of the night...
A lonely obscure defiance;
Where my silent tears will fall.
For none will ever remember
A quiet broken doll...

Chapter 1- Flame: WishThe car shuddered as it was drove carelessly along the narrow lane. Flame felt the hard roof pressing down on her as she awoke from her disturbed sleep. The car jerked again and Flame yelped as a sharp jolt of pain coursed through her body. It slowed to a stop and the boot was lifted so roughly that it nearly swung back down again onto her. Her vision swirled and she couldn’t make out who it was standing in front of her, until she heard him sneer ‘Get up then’. His voice was mocking, he knew she was weak and wouldn’t survive another violent blow. Flames eyes had focused now and she closed them, not wanting to see the man who had nearly killed her and her unborn young. The man had had enough and shoved her body aside; careless that she was a living animal that had feelings too. As Flame hit the dusty road she struggled not to whimper as the sharp gravel dug into her back, the man nudged her body with his foot ‘She will be dead in an hour’Chapter 1- Flame: Wish1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

It took time and plenty of effort, as well as plenty of wood. But rest assured, Skye had built her first house. It was small, yet humble. The handiwork of a first-timer.
Harley smiled at the sight of the little home. "Nice job, Skye. Not bad for a first-timer."
"Thanks." She said, smiling at the praise given to her. She looked towards the west. The sun had just begun setting. "Something tells me we better head inside. I have a feeling bad things happen at night..."

162. Actually don't wonder about what lava would do to it even privately.
