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

Summary: Korra was giving 110% of her effort to everything, but sometimes she just needs a break.
Training was going to be the death of her.
She was up at sunrise to train with Tenzin, well more or less get knocked around by the spinning gates, until both of them lost their patience. They would meditate for what seemed like days under the gazebo looking at the ocean and she would day dream.
By lunch time Pema would order them to each lunch and the children would ask her a million and one questions about everything before she would leave to Probending practice. Practice would consist of dodging, diving and dishing out things thrown at her. She would throw water around and get told how to control her element by a fire bender, setting her off on a ra

The night looked breathless behind Republic City’s skyline. It was the ‘Night of the Spirits’ where people all over Republic City dressed their best and respect the spirits with celebration with family and close friends.

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

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...
PrisonerIt's some sort of gravitational pull you possesses over me,Prisoner4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
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 ..
