Mist After the StormHe stretched out contentedly on the huge bed he and his friends were sharing, feeling warm and happy. The blankets were so lush and cozy; he couldnt even remember the last time he had slept in a real bed, let alone one as comfortable as this one.Mist After the Storm7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The boy buried himself further under the blankets, sighing. This was wonderful, pure bliss; a bed to sleep in, a warm meal in his stomach, and no worries about the war. He had no need to worry anymore, since he had ended it just a few weeks prior. His friends had taken him here, and they had been waiting until he was well enough to leave.
So what happened now?
He groaned slightly, not wanting to have to deal with this now. He was far too warm, his belly far too full, his mind much too sleepy
Truthfully, the question had presented itself in his mind several times, but he had never thought about it. Where would the others go? Would they want to go home? Would they leave him forever and never come back..?
No, they wouldnt do tha
JongKey - beauty of Autumn Ch. 1A warm but hard wind swirled around two high school boys wrapped in their brown furry jackets. It wasn't because it was cold they were wrapped like that in their heat providing jackets, no, it was out of habit and manner. Leaving ones house without a jacket was like having a sign on ones back, telling everybody how poor one was, and being thought bad of was not something you wished for. Not in this town, not in the neighbor town, not in any town, city, country or even village. People everywhere needed respect, craved it even. What would they be without it? Mere soulless zombies without purpose? Without meaning in their life? No.JongKey - beauty of Autumn Ch. 13 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Even though most people thought this, that wasn't why the two boys wore their jackets, even though it was as warm as it was. It wasn't because they thought of the respect, no, it was more because of their parent who had taught them to wear jackets when they went out.
The warmth was a peculiar thing. Not the warmth in itself, but the warmth in
Flowers And Nothing MoreThe road seemed to dip down, causing small gathering of puddles to become more frequent during the cold month of December. Rain was common during this time of year, as Christmas edged closer. Snow seemed to become not existent, for a reason that was unknown to the citizens of South Korea. The first snow hadn't come, hadn't showed off the beauty of falling perfectly onto the wet sidewalks, or gathering onto the front lawns of families. And because of the lack of snow, it didn't seem like winter to Lee Taemin.Flowers And Nothing More3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Every Christmas he enjoyed the first snow from behind the glass windows of his family's quiet flower shop. It didn't matter how many times he had done this ritual, he was always amazed how the world seemed to stop for those few hours to watch the falling snow. The flower stand that stood outside the shop would gather snow softly. The flowers' stems would freeze, crystals forming around the flowers' beautiful structure. The colorful petals would shine under rain drops and snow, look

My phone! I scrambled through my bag. Gone. Panicking I began to rush up and down to find a group of young men, by their looks, eye shape, and style; they must be Korean. In a chorus almost instinctively, they sang. "Hello, Hello," completely in turn with the words. My body began to tense up, more and more as they sung. 'Could it really be them?' I thought, "Could it?" The one with light brown hair, diva style and attitude, and adorable cheeks kindly said "Hello!" His English really surprised me, it was good but had that slight Korean accent that made my heart flutter. The youngest looking one with a sweet face said something to the others at an unthinkable speed in Korean, I only caught "미인아" (Miin-a/Beautiful Girl). That caused me to turn a little pink. "Umm " I looked around at the others than back to the English-spe

Mako shifted in his bed uncomfortably, kicking his thick blanket off a small portion of his lightly-clothed body, quickly regretting it afterwards as the cold, unforgiving air of the tundra nipped at his pale skin and filtered through the fabric of his clothing. He had been living in the South Pole for two months, and he still hadn't adjusted to the temperature of the place. At night, when the moon was high in the sky, he was usually at his coldest and so easily dressed in his thickest garments and retired to bed with his heavy blanket tucked around him. But as the night progressed into morning and the sun began to rise, his Firebending became more active and he heated up quickly, causing him to periodically dispose of different clothes each hour until he was left wearing virtually nothing, a sheet or something hanging loosely over his frame. But then he would wake in the morning and regret removing his clothes because despite how overheated he was during dawn, it was s

But I've never known the sea
I could stare forever
At what I will never be
I wish I was the sky
So clear and bright
But I never thought
I would be the night
If this life mattered
If I could care
I almost wish
I hadn't been there
You were the air
Fueling my fire
But one day soon
I'll end desire

that I wished that I could touch you
if only I could reach out
across the void of time and space
and embrace you
or just look into your eyes
then I could survive the torture
of our love
the torture of loving
one so far away
yet still so close
that I could feel your presence
as the warmth of the sun
I could smell you
as each breath was drawn into my lungs
I could taste you
as the air moved across my tongue.
You were with me in spirit
As I also stood by you
our hearts touching
our souls uniting
how I longed for you
as I cried silent tears
wondering if I will ever quench my desire
my desire to see you, touch you, feel you...
I thought I would die from the torture of our love
How envious I was of the towel
that you reached for after your shower.
How tormented I was,
wishing I were
the inanimate objects of your daily life...

Then how will you your secret tell?
When you say nothing.
Because you cannot.
You have not color, for the daylight to see.
So how may I know of your secret, do tell me?
When there is now nothing to look upon.
Because the light won't let me.
You have not kindness in your inherited temper.
So how can you give away so much?
When all you have is love.
You are of so many riddles.
Who, you cannot manifest,
Though I know, you biggest riddle is empathy.

Or paintings stare at them from the wall
While music,silently,listens to us all
In the night,when the moon admires this world
And the wind trembles because of the cold
That rests in a human's mind, a darkness untold.
Maybe books read us page after page
At times when we lock ourselves in a cage
Enjoying the stoyline until it causes damage
Nightmares are the ones frightened by humans
And the clouds just cry on our shoulders
Liberating, throwing their liquid treasures.
How about summer's impatience to meet you?
Or a movie composing its actors and a review
About a sculpture perfecting its artist
And a canvas coloring its painter with mist
What if I sit back, and let the sheet continue it
While the reader struggles to write until infinite.

like a net that I'm trapped in,
unable to break free ..
I'm a prisoner ..
Caught in your clutches,
How can you miss something you've never had,
want something you can't grasp?
It's torture ..
Wishing I was near to you,
so distant ..
I must be crazy,
feeling, feelings like this ..
Allowing my mind to drift like this ..
I'm vulnerable ..
You expose all my weakness ..
take my breath,
you're oblivious ..
What is it you did to me?
broke down my walls,
took my heart hostage,
held me prisoner ..
