Cricket
The night was winding down.  All homework and reading had been drawn to a bittersweet close.  After all, who would ever want to put down a college textbook in favor of the comfort of a mattress after a long day of work?
The day had been a long one, full of stress and work, but now, now it was time to finalize the day.  It was time to punctuate the events of the previous 16 or so hours and recharge.  It was time to journey to that period between conscious realities.  It was indeed time to sleep.  Yes only for a little while as the stresses and expectations of the undergraduate world would soon be calling once more.  It would soon be time to awaken from slumber and press on towards the goal.
My roommate and I had the fortunate privilege of being able to turn in at the same time.  Roughly midnight, however, usually turned into roughly 1:30 AM.  This was not an item of concern as naptime often reared

Circus Baby
The circus was in town today, and her hair was dressed in ribbons and curls. Her silver hair was flowing, down in waves and waves, matching the embroidery in her dress. Hair down her small back, and eyes up towards the big top. It was so very big...So very, very big...Too big for her to take it all in, and the wider her eyes open, the more her smile grew. It stretched and stretched, as her mother patted her shoulder, not turning, "Don't smile too hard. It might stick."
Still, her eyes darted and wandered, catching a flicker of color here, or a brush of hot popcorn air there. The seats, the tickets, the candy, where did her body stop, and the rest of the experience begin.
Rush, rush, whirl, whirl, bright lights, noise, silence, then darkness. There, the figure in the center. The man that controlled it out. From the acrobats, to the jugglers and lion trainers, to her mother, to her.
"Momma?..."
"Yes dear?"
"I wanna be just like him..."
"When you grow up, dear?..."
"Yes, Momma..."

The Battle for Citadel Keep
The itch was under his skin. It was a burning desire for all things new & foreign. A pair of fingers lightly brushed the serrated blade at his hip. A nervous cough escaped his parched lips, as he fumbled for a water skin. "We should've left hours ago." The end of Marquee's grumbling was muffled by the glug, glug of a freed 'skin.
"Ah, quit your belly achin', Marcus. With the weather as it is, ya best be restin'. They might be a bloody daft lot, but I doubt even they'd dare to attack in such a windy mess." Marcuee's companion was a bit daft himself, old beyond human years, quite a stumpy ill-mannered dwarf to be sure.
Marquee grumbled as the high winds shifted their direction, and rushing knife-like over the poorly cut wall. A gloved hand drew his grey woolen cloak across a grotesquely blistered face. "I told you, Craven. The name's Marquee."
The lich's thumb clicked the snap restraint of his jitte free, sliding the large grip into an open and waiting palm. "And by the by, Craven MacGre

Mommy Dearest
Rainy. Always rainy, always cold, always dark. Rainy and dark everywhere, soaking into the skin, chilling down. Too far down. Too cold. Too dark. Too rainy. I want Mommy. Where's Mommy?
I'm here, baby.
But. but Mommy. I can't see you. It's too dark. I. I'm shivering. Too cold. Too dark. Mommy. Help me.
Just believe, baby... I'm here. Even though you can't see me... Just believe...
Mommy. I. I believe...

Sin Eating the Self, Intro
Where to begin...Where to begin...That is forever the question. You see, with every telling, a story changes; it shifts, becoming more and more skewed...twisted...That is the way stories have always been. Skewed to benefit the reader & twisted to serve the writer.
So why am I telling you this, you ask? Always a valid question...Always. And I may yet answer it, when the time comes. ...Or I may not.
It has been 18 years since the start of it all. The demon within me. The sin-eater I created. All of it started the day I died...The day I was born...

Follow the Rain
Follow the rain.
Follow it to the ends of the earthÖ
Follow it to the mountain,
Where it slides down in waves.
Follow it to the rivers,
When it crashes to the banks.
Follow it to the groves,
Where the roots sing its love.
Follow it to the Man,
When he drinks the hidden water.
Follow it to the ends of the earthÖ
Where the Man and ocean meet.
Follow the rain,
Made by Man,
In return for God's sacrifice.

If I'm all confidential,
does it mean that I'm clean?
If flying means dying,
does it mean I can run?

Shoes
I've never had the shoes on the right feet. Never. I've walked differently too. I've walked too many places that no person that anyone should ever walk to, to begin with. But, regardless, I have, and I would never suffer a single person to ever have to know the meaning of the things I've learned. But, there is a positive side to all the pain I've experienced. I've learned to never stop walking.
Shoes are a necessity in our day and time. There are shoes for business, shoes for church, shoes for parties, shoes for sports, shoes for relaxing. A shoe for every purpose, and a size for every person. But, like every person here knows, not every shoe is right for every person. It's the same way in life. Every person has parts of themselves that come out at different times, their shoes, as it were. Part of life is understanding which shoes go on when & where, and which shoes aren't yours to put on. Before Show choir, I didn't understand that. I tried to put on the shoes of other people: my frie

Oysters With Grandpa
"So you missed the cruise again?" He laughed, then pressed the bivalve's shell to his lips and slid the soft flesh down his throat. Wiping his face with the back of his wrinkled hand, he smiled playfully, tossing the spent shell into the empty oyster bucket.
"Yeah, but I can always go next year." She repeated the process, watching the ships go by in the calm, slightly muggy pseudo-evening. Tugboat, yacht, cruise ship; tug boat, yacht, jet ski. Her foot slowly pumped, back and forth; her heel kicking off against the red Ranger truck, the air propelling her bare toes forward, her calves slowing its reverse motion, so as not to scrape against the scratched metal underside of the tailgate.
"Oh yeah; right after you take over the world, huh?" His elbow nudged her in the side; she nudged him back. Soon their movements were more frantic and their laughter harder, him trying to push her off the truck, her trying to stay on.
"Grandpa,Ö" she laughed with playfully indignation, as her body was fi

Happy Jade Man
It feels so strange
This separation from reality.
I see myself,
Within myself,
And I wish
I could escape.
I'm as numb as jade,
And I'm getting sicker,
More broken, by the day.
Every time I pass
By my reflection,
I see smaller pieces within,
More broken pieces.
I'm all broken eyes,
And scarred hearts,
And bleeding, bitten tongues.
I'm a fatalist, I guess,
Hoping, and dreaming, and praying
That things are getting worse,
Because I can't deal with
them getting better.
I'm struggling to find
A temporary asylum,
A brief rest,
From the absolute androgyny
Of this masochistic anguish.
I don't know if I'll ever find it;
I don't know if I can.
But there's always use in trying,
If only to say you did.
With my broken eyes,
I can see that.
With my scarred hearts,
I can feel that.
And with my bleeding, bitten tongues,
I can speak that.
After that, I can die
A happy jade man.

Mortal Man
Mortal man was meant to die. It's a simple fact. No rhyme; no reason; just fact. No matter how old or young you are; no matter how healthy or morbid; you still die. Maybe just like Earl Parrott. Only 22 years old. Old enough to see the world; old enough to love your country, and old enough to hate your enemy; but most of all, old enough to die. Yes, to die.
To have your heart stop beating in your chest, to feel your veins futilely pumping; straining to hold your precious life's blood in, as it seeps and gushes out of every rent and laceration. To see it rolling and dripping and flowing down your arms and legs and chest and face. To inhale the acrid fragrances of liquid apprehension, crimson betrayal, and human excrement wrestling for control of every fiber of your being. To taste the copper essence of blood and earthy texture of pebbles and mud sloshing around in your mouth. To know you are perceiving the whining echoes of complete silence as your body falls, slowly numbing, to the gro

So...
So what am I doing?
I'm holding my tongue.
So what am I thinking?
Hoping you both find true understanding,
Right before you rot.
So why am I angry?
Because I know I've been used.
So why do I think so?
Because I'm a toy for Time,
While you wait for another.
