DreamsDreams are beautiful things.Dreams in Short Stories More Like This
They are so precious to make, to come up with the vibrant colors and motions to place into someone's mind while they are in that unconscious state of sleep, to see them smile in their sleep as they are transported to a different world.
Dreams take away the pain that is there when you awake.
Which is why I like my job so much.
There are 4 different doors that control how much pain one can take, as a wise philosopher that I knew once told me.
The first and perhaps the most important door is sleep, compared to the other three: Forgetting, Madness and Death.
Sleep gives one protection from pain and distances a person from what they have experienced. Similarly, dreams, even though in most situations are nothing but an illusion, provide a temple of sanctuary for those who have endured the most traumatic experiences they have in their life.
I try to ease the pain for them, but for some the pain never ends, not even in dreams.

The Black DeathI can feel it already, eating away at my skin.The Black Death in Short Stories More Like This
Clinging to it like some potent, nasty black lecherous slug that refuses to let go.
It's disgusting, the way that it chokes every bit of life around it. It spills into every molecule, every living fiber of life.
It doesn't matter where it is, land or water, the Black death kills whatever it can get its sticky hands on.
For some, once its coils wrap around you like some anaconda from the Amazon, there is no coming back. Your life is over. Goodbye.
And for others, they live, but the mark is still there. Black splotches covering skin, fur, scales, feathers. It's almost impossible to remove.
And for those who live in the sea, they cannot run, like those on the land. We were not blessed with that option. we can only swim so far before it catches up to us and entangles us in its deadly embrace like some beautiful yet deadly seaweed.

Sick isn't something
You can see.
When I'm standing there -
Fists bracing -
For 'no reason at all',
I hope it makes you
Feel big and tall,
To tell me I'm being stupid.
When I can't talk to someone -
Because my throat is dry,
And I feel sick,
Like I can't
Catch my breath,
Like I'm going to cry
Like I'm hurtling
Towards death -
Don't tell me to
'Get over myself'.
When I'm crying -
And my knees
And I'm too scared
And every heart
Makes me jump -
How can you tell me
I need to 'grow up'?
When I can't get on a bus -
Because so many people,
So many eyes,
And my mind is force-feeding
Me so many lies -
Don't tell me I 'think I'm better
Than everyone else'.
I'm trying my hardest.
Really, I am.
Would you tell someone with a broken leg
To just get up and walk?
Would you tell someone with no tongue
To open their mouth and talk?
Would you tell a wingless angel
So tell me why -

You are the smiling face,

That helped everything turn out
Better than planned.
You are the voice

Make a vital choice.
You are the joke
That made them laugh
And gave them that stroke
Of happiness that they needed.
You are the bright eyes
That light the way,
A lantern of hope
Through the fog of lies.
You are their push towards
Their positive afterwards.
And you are far from worthless.
Are the most important person
In the world.
We are all characters
In someone else’s story.
That pivotal point,
That pushes them from misery,
And leads them to their glory.

And play with pretty dolls;
Your laughter warms our hearts,
Your smile lifts our souls.

And you can’t say my name;
You dance to invisible music,

You have curly blonde hair,
And big brown eyes;
A smiling flower of a face,
And chubby baby thighs.
You will grow to be big,
And you will change;
You’ll learn the world’s scary,
As much as it is strange.
If I could give you one tip,
And know that you’d follow it,
It’d be: be who you are,
Live like there’s no tomorrow.
Don’t strive for beauty,
Don’t live for lies;
Find beauty in living and
Keep putting beauty into
Other people’s lives.

Her small hand swallowed it
A glow enveloped her cyan eyes,
like firecrackers on the Fourth of July
She scribbled wildly,
with no direction
She held a marigold pencil

no longer chubby, but she thought they were
Her collarbones smiled through her skin,
even though she did not
But she still doodled,
eating her mistakes
She held a ballpoint pen
in between her brittle bones-
they were supposed to be fingers
Her ribcage protruded like shelves at the market,
however held no food: only pain
But she still drew,
and devoured the ink
She was a starving artist,
and art was all she ate.
