The restless specter of my lost love
wanders so cold,
imprisoned in her dreadful secret garden.
From haunted dreams
her longing spirit intones whispered songs
of undying passion,
of endless betrayal.
Memories echo through this empty host,
their substance vicious,
their meaning shattered on reflection.

Chapter 2: Link, Dark, and Shadow Link
"Magic or physical brute force? Which do you say is better?"
"I say I'm better at sword-fighting." Link replied to his shadow.
"I love magic even better." Vaati countered.
"Pffft. I can deal with both. That's how cool I am." Dark answered his own question.
As planned, the boys went on their hiking trip. They stayed in the woods where the waterfalls splashed down on a small body of water. They all unpacked their things in the land with scarce grass nearby. Trees surrounded the small spot where they were to stay.
"And why am I asking this? It's because…" Dark looked sinisterly at Vaati.
He threw an orb of dark power at the Hylian-Minish, but missed.
"Aaaah, I see. For training?" Vaati said once standing straight after evading the blow.
"It's because I wanted to know if I always pwn you two. And I do!" Dark took off his normal outfit that revealed his short black trunks and dived right in the pool of water.
Vaati merely stared at Dark who alre

Chapter 16: To Heal a Wound
"How could I be so stupid?!" Link said, his fist charging onto a nearby tree. Tears flowed once more from his cerulean eyes.
Dark said nothing, he just looked at somewhere else as he crossed his arms.
"Vaati how could I do this again to someone like you ?" Link stuttered once more, filled with guilt.
"He cast a sleeping spell and a healing spell all wrapped in one. I guess he intended for me not to wake up that night at all costs for me to recover painlessly." Dark figured.
Link continued to cry until he saw that the cucco was there, lying beside Dark's feet. It was still drenched and soiled, still pitiful to the sight.
Upon seeing this, Link wiped his tears with his sleeve. He stood straight and faced Dark.
"Hmph. Well?" Dark said, raising a brow.
"What are we doing, just standing around?" Link said sternly. His eyes were filled with determination.
Dark smiled. "I dunno."
"Well, all I know is that I need to find Vaati and save your shadow f

Chapter 25: Vio
After seeing that there was no other way to proceed but that lone locked door, he decided to check the other rooms he just passed by. By instinct, he went in the supplies room, hoping to find something he could use to unlock the door.
In the supplies room, he found that there were a lot of unused items scattering about. He rummaged through all of them and tried to search for something of importance most of them were but documents or some objects useless in his pursuit.
He stopped for a while and concentrated. He felt that he didn't need to search the whole place thoroughly he decided to come back later to see if he could find anything. He felt that he needed to go to the next room
He indeed went to the next room. The room was a laboratory of some sort, its shelves filled with potions and books alike. There was a center table, probably used for experiments. On it was something covered with a white sheet.
He looked at the potions they all looked ha

I don't want to die
I just want to find a place
Where pain is a metaphor
And God is explained
Where people smile when they mean it
And don't laugh at murder
I don't want to kill myself
This world is all I have
I don't hate the sun
I just wish it would rise
On an earth that doesn't bleed
On hands that rest from pain
Where miracles are believable
And patriots are not scorned
I don't welcome darkness
But darkness is all I see
I don't want to die
I just want to take you home
Where babies live to smile
And families stay together
Where compassion still means something
And I can deserve your love
I don't want to die
And I won't
Not as long as I have breath in my body

They always say, "live each day as if it were your last".
But we don't really listen, do we?
We only truly value our lives when we're staring death in the face.
And it's too late to change all you ever did wrong.
It almost seems ironic, how we think of all the regrets.Â
"If I only knew then what I know now"
A girl like me, always so enveloped in self-pity and suicidal dreams,
Never taking the time to appreciate her blessings,
Was only able to see them when they were pulled away.
Suffering insanely and ripping myself apart,
But I never wanted to give up.
I would still never do it, bleed it all out and give up
But I still prayed for the reaper
And I suppose I got my wish,
When the men tied cinderblocks to my ankles
And threw me into the sewers.
I wasn't thinking, upon my last breath, of the waste in the lungs,
But of all the choices I'd made.
How I should have cherished my life, instead of ruthing it.
How all of those things I dreamed of braving every da

Another announcement, another point added to the disaster unfolding
I'm here by the T.V, while its hope still that I see myself holding
The sun is but bright, but warm in the sky so blue
Clouds around here are rolling on by too
But by the towers, and by my husband are they blacker than smoke
Through the screen shows another veil, another form of hatred
But why? But how? Answers swirling in my head that I wish were answered
How could someone be so cold, to murder their own kindred
Why would someone believe, their life for sacrifice be achieving something?
Suicide they say, is a permanent answer, for a temporary problem
I believe my husband is still alive, I believe that his hope is still strong
One thousand times I've been right, will this be my first wrong?
The wind but blows softly on my face, through my open door
I wish he could feel what I'm feeling, think what I'm thinking and more
I wish he was safe, that he could see me again, because I want him here

THE DEFINITION OF LOVE
Zelda drummed her fingers on the dark wooden desk. The candlelight shimmered, casting shadows all over the walls. The letters in front of her were hardly visible in the scant light.
Her eyes continued to skim the book, her face in utter concentration and her forehead creased.
These cliche stories weren't helping.
The classic story of love between a handsome, blonde prince and a gorgeous princess who had her face plastered with lipstick in the shades of strawberry...
This didn't seem like love to her. Not at all.
So, if not this, what was it? When did she know if she was in love?
Her hands ran through her blonde hair in agitation. She thought she was in love... but she didn't know. Zelda sighed, drawing her arms around her knees.
She bit her lip, and reached for another story. They were all ones from her childhood... and none of them would help.
She shut her eyes and felt sleep overtake her.

It was oft, and in many ways
That I loved her
Yet she sought me as a sailor does stars
And just as often;
Her room, dark, tempted by
A sliver of moonlight
Is misty by her sighs.
Does she not recognize
The deliberate action of my words?
O, the heavens would have me harshly judged
For the Sundays spent searching
For the hundredth, milestone letter.
That I am a poet, she must loathe
Though I am thankful that her
Loathing loves me still.
I cannot deny
That I am a poet,
And I love her with words.
It was oft, and in many ways
That I lost sleep, writing under a shade of cloud,
Wandered the streets for inspiration,
A glimpse of poetry,
That I loved her.

I woke up in a daze and what looked like a military base. I was confused until everything came back to me...hard. I suddenly remember a soldier coming to my house delivering a message saying that my dad was killed in battle. I was devastated. I'm not the type to exact revenge on people, but this time it was different. My whole village was annihilated. Everybody was killed including the babies. The Huns said that only the strong could survive. That's when all the men decided to go back into the military. As for the women who did survive. They were all taken and either hung, beaten, or raped. It was about to be my turn when I got the news of his death. I made a very risky decision and decided to join to get revenge for my family and village. I snuck out and grabbed my dad's old uniform and cut my hair with his sword. I got on my favorite horse a

I fear for the world today.
A world in which, 'Where you at?'
Constitutes as a question.
'I did good.'
'None of them work.'
You have been fooled.
'Where are you?' will suffice.
'I did well.' Is nice.
'None of them works.' Is lovely.
So, my gentle snowflakes,
Perhaps I love grammar a little too much,
And perhaps I'm just exacerbating things,
But damn it,

The conch's twist holds
an old world. Just beyond the glossy rim
where the shell curves out of sight
a half-full bottle plunges
into the sea. The green glass
has no end, its sides spreading
light like a coloured lens. But this ocean
is a dark edge, as if eyes had never lifted
its hard dermis. A wave curls
and becomes icecream in a turqouise bowl. You
are here, looking through spirals at someone else
who is you. The bowl empties
and a cold signifier stings the skull.
This time it is no echo
of the sea's thousandfoot rush, or the tang
of stale salt inhaled from a pinkwhite lip. This time
you are there. The icecream is just as cold, the glass
of beer bottles still shedding jade. But this could be
any beach. And now it matters
that you cannot swim.

The windows curtains had been drawn but there was not much to see, a storm blew its fury outside but the room was safe and quite, little could be heard besides the womans struggles. Candles lined shelves producing a faint orange glow that flickered and rolled over bead of sweat forming on the young ladys face. The pain was horrible to her but she could not give up, contractions came with increasing frequency, searing pain tore through her midsection and she felt as if she were about to tear in half.
