After dawn they will awake. Then their sanity he will break.
The man who branches like a tree. Will seek me out at three three three.
Until then, I dare not see. For rules broken, he may find me.
You think a knife will bode you well. Little do you know this is a new Hell.
First the Proxies subdue their prey. Then their king takes thee for a day.
HABIT makes the final kill. All of this is for a thrill.
There's no need to lose your hope. this is all just one long piece of rope.
Pry it apart strand by strand. Until you have a tiny band.
Take it and lock your doors. Leave it there 'Till Three Three Four.
After that, you will see. He only cares for Three Three Three.
Slumber of The Great Old OnesAs mankind goes on it will never know,Slumber of The Great Old Ones7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The truth of the world that'll never show,
The horrors that lie from times long since past,
Causing fear and torment like the shadows they cast,
Tucked away below ground and under sea,
Sleeping in darkness they wait for thee,
Their followers carry their praise,
Waiting alone until the end of days,
Until the time they wake from their slumber,
All the souls of mankind they shall plunder,
Their cries for release carry on through the night,
Until their freedom comes when the stars are right,
On that dark day the sleepers will arise
To destroy the world of man they despise
They will envelop the world in madness and pain,
With the blood of mankind the earth they shall stain,
For centuries on insanity shall reign,
What once was theirs shall be so again,
Until that time they sleep alone in their tombs,
Leaving mankind unaware of the danger that looms,
Hidden away from our world they shall never die,
Because that which is not dead can eternal lie,

My God, why didn't I ask for her phone number? This really sucks. For some reason, Victoria hasn't been going to school. Or, at least, I haven't seen her at all around here. I mean, I know last night I wouldn't, for the life of me, admit that I like her, but I can't deny it anymore. Man, that was a lot of commas.
I really wanna see her again. And maybe I wouldn't be such a coward and actually kiss her! That would rock. She has such pretty lips.
So yeah, I'm sitting here during gym class, trying not to scream with frustration. The P.E. teacher, Don Wolffe, is leering at me. He thinks I'm a wuss, you see, and is constantly challenging me to actually do something in class. I guess I'm only screwing myself by not taking up his challenge, but I also know that it annoys the crap out of him. I always ace his theory exams anyway, so I'll scrape by with a C at least.
"Are you ever going to do anything with your life?" asks Wolffe in a low growling voice. I can see that we are out o

Glaring down with malignant intent,
Gibbering with insane laughter,
Reaching out with inhuman forces,
They slowly descend once again upon us,
They are the master of this universe,
Beyond our limited comprehension,
We move on not giving them a thought,
But they give thought about us,
As we move along they just stare,
To them we are nothing,
They move us around like pawns,
Altering our destinies to their own purpose,
Causing chaos to erupt wherever they touch,
Twisting the sanity of men for their entertainment,
Leading a Danse Macabre through our lives,
All to the monotonous sounds of their infernal pipes,
They release their servants into the world of man,
Sent forth to do their bidding,
Twirling and dancing to the droning music,
Always dancing to the eerie tune,
Paying no heed to the world around them,
Once the dance has started it cannot end,
As humanity feels the effect's of their touch,
As The music reaches its hellish climax,

Completely unaware of what lies at the sea floor,
There in the darkness where the old ones sleep,
Lies sunken city of those that dwell in the deep,
This drowned city has no life by any means,
But in his house Great Cthulhu dreams.
That dark city of the depths sleeps still,
Against the waves held together by his will,
The cyclopean buildings contain such wonder,
Locked away waiting until mankinds blunder,
As he sleeps Cthulhu gathers his might,
Waiting for the time when the stars are right,
On the surface his followers grow in mass,
Grouped together for the time when strange aeons pass,
One by one they sacrifice in his name,
After they have given they will never be the same,
Dancing in ritual throughout the night,
In the swamps and the seas of the world out of sight,
When the stars are right and the sleepers awake,
Upon the souls of man their

The one hand clapping question is an ancient Zen Buddhist riddle from a teacher to a student to stop his mind from wandering whilst meditating.
The student keeps hearing things whilst meditating and goes back saying the sound of one hand clapping is music or an owls hoot but eventually realises it is a "soundless sound."
This realisation shows he has entered the true meditative state where his mind no longer wanders and he can get closer to enlightenment, the goal of Buddhism.

Cain wandered from Eden, and his family with him, until they came upon a small oasis. There was a crude structure that stood next to the water, and inside Cain found a young man, a little older than Cain, but still younger than Cain's wife. He had been living in the oasis without human contact. He had been left by Lilith to die in the wilderness, but his sisters would come and care for him until he was old enough to fend for himself. The man saw Cain's mark, and his sickly complexion, and feared for his life. Cain lunged to feed upon the man, but his wife stopped him.
"What is your name, child?"
"They call me as you have, 'child'. Are you the ones that were cast from the forest?"

After Lilith was cast out, Adam mourned for seven years. He wandered Eden weeping so that even Adonai himself was saddened by the loss. It came about that Adam finished mourning, however, and asked Adonai if there was another like him. Adonai again told Adam that he was unique, but that he would make a helpmate. This time, however, she would be made from Adam, and not from the earth. She would always be merely a part of a part. This was a punishment for Lilith's rebellion. She would know that always her kind would be subservient.
Adonai let Adam sleep, and removed from him a rib. The rib was used to create his new partner Eve. Eve was much like Adam, she was innocent and pure. She always was near to him. The two were very much in love, and Adonai was happy. Soon, they had many children, and Adam was very joyous at the birth of his twin sons. He named then

He might hear you.
I am pressed against the wall. My fingers are spread as wide as they will go as my palms press heavily on the drywall. I take a deep breath. Hold it tight. I feel the air escaping my lungs, my circulation; my blood thinning of oxygen as I hold, one, two, three .
I hear Him slither down the hallway. His movements are languid, snake like, as He comes after me. I can imagine it all in my head: the long, thin arms, coiling around every turn and corner, searching for me. Have you ever noticed His face? His eyesor lack thereof? I have a theory. He doesn't have eyes because He doesn't need them. He hears things. Feels things. Smells things.
I exhale, slowly, hoping not to catch His attention. It's a fruitless thought. He knows where I am. He's only playing with me. A game of cat-and-mouse, where He is the cat, and I am nothing more than a rubber mouse hiding underneath old and rusty furniture. He will
