Most MorningsMost nights, I can't sleepMost Mornings5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not unless I arrange the blankets
Somehow I manage to mimic
The shape of her body
But I can't recreate
Or the way her chest
Moved softly against my back
With every measured
Most nights, I wake up
And she's not here
Maybe she got up
To get a drink of water
And I don't even know
How long she's been gone
But somehow I know
That she's never
Going to come back to bed
And if I would just reach over
And touch her side of the bed
I would know it was cold
But I'm afraid
I don't want to know she's gone
I don't want to know I can't have her back
And I'll fall asleep again
But most mornings,
I'll wake up thinking
She's still here
And I'll lie there
For just a moment
Wondering where she's gone
And then I begin to wonder
How long I've been alone

Sally was sitting on the back of the couch, her legs swinging next to my shoulder... Nothing bad really was going on, aside from the fact that Jeff was being... Well. Jeff.
Jeff made another victory lap around the couch as BEN continued to brood. “It's not fair.”
Jeff smiled and came to the front of the couch again. “Are you calling for a re-match or what, little man?”
BEN gave Jeff a tight-lipped frown and rolled his eyes. “I'm bushed, you ass, Sally can go or something.”
Jeff shook his head. “Wha- Does Sally look like the dancing type to you?”
Sally gave Jeff an obligatory look, not quite sure if he meant that as an insult or a compliment. “Does the game have singing?”
“No. No singing,” BEN clarified, sending Sally into

The call happened on a cold October night. No one walked the semi-misty streets. The orange lights coming out of all the Halloween decorations have a warm, yet eerie feeling. No one thought something wrong might happen. They were all wrong.

It was the voice of a scared little boy. It seemed that he had cried. At first, the dispatcher thought that the call was an accident, until the boy said.
"He's covered in blood, and he won't wake up."
His voice cracked.

The birds chirped happily just outside the window of the kitchen as morning light streamed onto the tile floor. A gentle summer breeze brought with it the scent of afternoon rains as Caitlyn Jones busied herself with the usual household work. Occasionally, she would glance up at the service banner that hung in the window, smiling distantly.
America was off in Korea, following the orders of their boss. She was rather used to this sort of thing occurring. Her husband had fought in every war they were ever involved in, meaning she knew well enough by now what must be done to keep the people going while America was over-seas. She still had secondary power to America, but this was expected. If it was anything major, he would be contacted and removed from service temporarily to deal with the issue. She found that system worked rather well, as it gave her the opportunity to see her husband whenever he was called home.
There was a brisk knock at the door, followed by the usual yippings of her

No need to act all sissy-like.
But...China, as you demanded to call him, was so nice and caring, you had to fall in love. So today you slowly worked up the courage to confess to him.

Mako sat at the desk in his and Bolin's shared room, looking over his never ending pile of paperwork. He was so lost in his work, carefully reading over and signing each form, that he didn't even hear the door open or notice anyone walk in until she was right next to him.
Mako jumped. Realizing that it was just Korra, he calmed down.
"Please don't sneak up on me like that."
"I didn't sneak up on you. I thought you heard me come in." She looked down at the paperwork on his desk. Trying to see over her very pregnant belly, she leaned forward the slightest bit. "What're you doing?"
"Work," he told her, turning back to it, "You're kinda crushing some of it."
"Oh, sorry." She took a step back. "Don't you have enough work to do actually at work?"
"Apparently not. I had no idea there'd be this much paperwork to do to become a cop." He wasn't complaining, though. He couldn't have been more grateful to have been offered such a well paying, respected job.
