The Phoenix spaceport was vibrant with activity as I languorously strode past the various gates in my journey to the one that would be my doorway to the infinity of space. The atmosphere hummed tangibly with electricity and CPU-harnessed machinery, lending an almost androgynous life to the very air I breathed. A deluge of uniform expressions and empty azure eyes hastened towards me. I ducked away from them into a labyrinth of benches arranged around my designated gate and sunk myself into an uncompromising seat, my meager carry-on situated beside me.
I deliberated on my impending 24-hour voyage, in a vehicle ten times the size of my rural
Fair the bitter cold
Palms open on a night
Lit by the crescent moon
Will not draw nigh to me
Are tainted with the light of love
Not for the touch of it
For the lack of love
Doth mine heart lie restless
In my breast
It flutters, ne'er ceasing
As a hummingbird
The sunlight gleaming on its wings
That sun's kiss
Is not there for mine heart
My lips are dry
In want of
My lover's lips
With soft touch, to draw nigh
I bid him come
With naked arms
Those tears now upon my lips
It's frigid shroud about my shoulders
Grants some comfort

My vows are always true.
Trust is frail when broken.
To find it whole is rare.
Much less is said with roses
Than is shown with time and care.
I know you have my number.

"Friedrich, mail today. From the banker…" Friedrich - sitting in his reading chair in his small, four-room apartment - grimaced mightily. The banks were never as reliable as they had been before the war, before his war. This might mean anything, this letter.
"Mary, I don't want to see any mail from the bank today. I haven't had a good day looking for work, and I…" he was cut off by Mary as she entered the room.
"No, Friedrich. I really think this one can't wait."
The white slip of ever-so innocent paper took flight in the short drop from her hands to his lap, turning over face-down as if ashamed of its content. Putting the newspaper he ha
I've taken up knitting. Because I'm broke this year, I thought I would knit scarves for people. :P
I may slack a bit in my regular posting. I have an artistic equivalent of a writer's block. On top of that, I'm trying to lose 20 pounds and tone up. I want to be sincere about it... run, do yoga, lift weights. :blahblah:
Anyway, send me good thoughts if you think of it. :D
