the darkened room to rest on a wall
as lonely as i am, a wall that could
tell stories older than the blood in my body.
i think of how we are just people
who organize their lives and loves
into boxes of respective sizes, and
yet these boxes hold more than our
memories - they hold ourselves.
in this room, so many things have
happened: a lost innocence, a lost
virginity, a lost sense of self.
i cannot help but remember how this
room was just a futon and bunk-beds
when we first met, i also
cannot help but realize that this
room has cocooned and evolved
with me, over time.
in an attempt to rid you from where i
sleep, i switch beds.
in an attempt to rid you from myself,
i chance myself nightly.
and though i cannot see anything in
the unlit cave i call my bedroom, i
find comfort in the ceiling, for that is
where my memories, bad dreams, and

The wind blew gently as the leaves danced and sung in the light breaking through the dense canopy of trees. As a young Paladin gazed upon the ancient trees that lifted their reach as far as she could see; an enchanted dust fluttered and filled the forest with an ambient glow. It was a foreign beauty to behold to this young Draenei. Ashenvale had always been a natural wonder, untouched by corruption and eternally growing. That is until the Orcs made their appearance; harvesting and pillaging the bounty & gifts that the Night Elves held dear.
The Paladin had heard that reinforcements were needed to drive back the callous invaders. The Orcs had defiled the pristine land by burning and cutting everything in their path with their crude machinery. She was there to provide aid to the Night Elves, for they, had once welcomed her into their home when she had lost everything she held dear.
As she arrived to the small yet heavily armed town of Astranaar , she witnessed several Senti

i gathered my things and
stood naked in my bedroom,
weeping, calling out to
everyone i had ever loved,
for they would never know the
weight of this pain;
it was the eighth of july,
and you left your heart on
the counter along with
your feelings for me.
and the seasons happened
as if they were love-drunk
and dating each other; there
were summer days in winter,
and winter days in spring.
i hurt as if i knew the definition
of the word and not the feeling.
the last time i saw you
was in a high school hallway,
black hair glossy in the
fluorescent light, lips pressed
to the sickly air.
your eyes drew mine in
and i saw the death in yours.
there are some people you
can pray for all you want,
but when the medication doesn't work,
there is no god.

The dreams come
but they are not dreams at all
and I am not asleep.
Your hand sliding up my thigh
and your groan slicks itself onto my neck,
embeds itself into my skin.
I wear the remnants
of your ecstasy in my flesh still.
It crawls when any other nears it.
It came to be that your bed-side clock
replaced my fearful heartbeat
as I laid in stasis and hoped -
for a passing; of time, of fingers, of life.
I cannot sleep with ticking in my ear anymore
I don't think of time running out, but of paralysis.
I think of lapses of concentration,
I think of those slow burning moments
that stretched out longer than I wanted
and lasted longer still. I think of the tears.
I am not enchanted.
The days pass
but they are not days at all
and I am not awake.
I am pacified by the numbness
of lobe or cortex that controls memory,
a self imposed strike out against you,
a strike my hand should have made.
Regret is buried
six feet beneath my fingernails.

It was his fault they were gone.
You could never forgive him.
The Full Metal Alchemist.
You had followed him to his next location. It was a village that looked so much like the one he had destroyed.
He was staying at a local inn. You knew it was the best time to make your attack. He would pay for killing your parents and ruining your life. Knife in hand you snuck into his room.
Raising the dagger above his sleeping forum you grimaced.
“Stop!” an almost hallow voice called grabbing your arms.
“Let go!” you shouted trying to squirm from the unknown person.
An alert, but still sleepy voice asked, “What’s going on.” He was awake. The Full Metal Alchemist looked at you. Your knife had fallen to the floor. “What were you…?”
“MURDERER!” you shouted angrily still struggling madly. “Let me go! You cold hearted murderers!”

"Sasuke. Orochimaru would like to see you." Your voice carried through the breeze behind his door, reaching his ears in a soft tone.
"Right." Came his reply, stoic as ever. Sasuke never was one to show too much emotion when he spoke, trying to keep his cool at all times.
Truth be told, he despised that Orochimaru, for what he'd give to get rid of him forever. But he knew that was out of the question as of right now. He still had tricks to learn from him after all.
Sasuke knew all about his grand-master-plan to retrieve his body as soon as his skills had matured and steal it all for his own.
Like hell he'd let that happen.
All that mattered to him in this sorry hideout was training and of course, (Name), the woman he had brought with him from his home village. His liking of her was too great for him to just leave her behind.
He never admitted it, but she was a big part in his life.

Wha-...What was that?
I wake up from a dreamless sleep just in time for the second blow.
The walls shudder and suddenly I'm on the floor, gripping the carpet fiercely as the room rattles around me. I shut my eyes tight, hoping for the worst. Then, all of a sudden, the shaking of the house comes to a complete halt. No aftershock, no rumbling. Complete silence.
I stand up, dazed and confused, as I hear a small patter down the hallway coming towards my room. Scared breathless, I had no idea what to expect. Was someone trying to bomb us? Had someone broken in our house? I had no time to think.
The room was pitch dark, so I felt down the plaster walls frantically, circling my bedroom until I found the closet door. I opened it slowly and jumped inside, leaving a small crack to observe the inside of my dark room. Sitting down amongst clothes and other personal belongings, I waited silently in a blanket of darkness.

I then heard the sound of something falling. I just kept walking. My umbrella wasn't doing me to good either.
Then two minutes later I felt a little tugging at me coat. "What?" I yelled. But when I turned around all I saw was a little homeless girl no older than 4.
"You dropped this." She said holding out my cell phone with important files. Luckily I had it shut off with a password. I took it from her. It was miraculously dry.
"Thank you. Little girl." I said. I was thinking of just walking away but then I realized her appearence.
