Reimagined part 2It was at the top of the stairs that she felt it, even though her senses were dulled by exhaustion, it was a tingle at the base of her spine. As she walked closer to her bedroom, that tingle turned to a chill so deep she felt it in her bones. She opened the door and what she saw made her gasp.
A man, tall enough that he towered over her nearly six foot self, thin but well muscled, none of that was as important as the glistening silver hair that hung to his knees. Even his hair paled to his wings, yes wings, thin and transparent and they looked as though they'd been spun from a spiders' web. As he turned, those wings glistened in the light, turning all different hues as the light struck them. All the magic that pervaded the room would vanish as soon as you caught a glimpse of his eyes, eyes that held no sight and were dulled black, those eyes bled.
For her there was nothing so terrible as that man finding her. To hide from him she'd thrown away her name, cut her hair from its floor touc
ReimaginedIt had been a dark and gloomy night so far and it was only getting worse. She stared out her dining room window wondering if the snow would ever stop, it looked like a blizzard. She had woken with shock that morning due to another night terror that had gripped her in her sleep.She'd suffered from these for years, I suppose that is what comes with what she had to endure that one far off night. She'd gotten up, tried to ready herself and was going to leave. Upon opening her front door, she found her car covered nearly 3 foot deep in snow and a thick layer of ice. That day had showed no signs of getting any better the longer it wore on.
The events of the day were nothing special, merely grocery shopping and other menial errands that had to be run. Although for some unknown reason, it seemed the vehicles or maybe the people in them had it out for her that day. It was barely noon and she had so far only barely managed to escape from 3 accidents by mere seconds. She'd stopped at a four way s
To Find Another...To be everything you want,
I must give up all I know.
To be together for always,
I would gladly give up everything.
To have all we would need,
I would steal and lie and cheat.
To keep you with me,
I would give myself to your whims.
In the end, I still couldn't keep you.
I will give everything,
If only to find another.
I will sew my heart back together,
If only for it to mend and break again.
I would do anything and everything,
If only to keep this one a little longer.
I would take all the pain and never leave,
If only to have someone to stay with me.
In the end, will you still leave?
To be strong meant nothingIn such a rough and undefined way, I'm striking out with my heart.
I'm pushing all my boundaries, every limitation I've ever had.
Looking past the glamour, seeing through to the soul.
Taking their hand, I'll pull them into my world.
Throw away all the illusions, showing the truth through until the end.
Maybe I'll feel like I'm treading water, Maybe it'll be like walking on water.
I want to experience all the pain, I want the pleasure to heal me when the pain hurts the most.
In a very naive way, I want my heart to burst from happiness.
I'm ready to push through bad memories, I want to feel the good with the bad.
Looking around me and really seeing, I'll take every opportunity that life throws my way.
Maybe that next stranger, Maybe the childhood friend I haven't seen in years.
I want to go through life and be happy,I'll take all the pain that comes with it.
In a very wise way I know not to put all my trust in them, I wish I didn't know better.
I wished I was strong then wished again for
Washing the world away...Its something of a miracle,how the night looks so clear
I can hear music and it makes me feel alive.
The wind is blowing and the trees are rustling,
Its like the whole night is dancing.
Sitting on a porch swing and listening to the cicadas,
Its humid and I can smell the rain in the breeze.
Standing, I feel the wind and I can hear the faint patter of rain,
Soon now the water comes pouring down and cleansing this place.
I can hear the thunder in the distance and it rumbles through me,
Its such a thrill, seeing the lightning is like watching fireworks.
Leaving the porch and stepping into the rain feels so good,
The rainwater is running down my back and slowly soaking me through.
My hair hangs long and wet down my back,
I stand with my face upturned and my eyes closed.
Its like my soul has been washed clean,
All my troubles and worries flow through me,
The water sends rivulets of them down the street.
I have the urge to run through the streets,
Chasing down the storm as it goes to the next
An almost normal day The sunlight was streaming golden through the car windows, I had just passed into the sunny wine country of california. Just three hours away was our new home, a beautiful two story victorian style home. The car was quiet, I had just turned the radio off and the kids were fast asleep in the backseat. It was around one in the afternoon and so far it had been a beautiful day with no sign of rain. What happened that day I'll never forget.
I had turned off the interstate and was on the exit road to a small town when I heard it. A terrible gut-wrenching scream. It scared me so much I lost control of the steering wheel and barely managed to keep the car on the road. The tires screeched as I stomped down on the brake. I looked back at my kids and they were asleep but unnaturally still and pale, if I wasn't staring hard at them, I could swear they weren't breathing. I turned the engine off and despite it being a hot 87 degrees outside, the temperature in the car dropped rapid
A Land of DroughtI once thought there was silence
It was quiet once, long ago
Now all I hear are the screams
The only sound the crack of the whip
I remember the quiet sometimes
It was a burbling brook, fast moving
I feel the pain to my very bones
Pain withers my mind and my thoughts
I once thought there was water
It was cool and wet, long ago
Now all I feel is the parching heat
The only water is mud in the ditch
I remember the streams sometimes
It was a roaring river, engulfing all
I see the suffering all around
It grips tight my heart
I once thought there was shade
It was dark and cold, long ago
Now I see only the blinding, burning sun
The only shade is from the mass of dead
I remember the trees sometimes
It was a rustling breeze, carrying a storm
I was once alive but that time has come to pass.
It was a life, long ago
Now I have all I ever wanted
The only thing missing is the pain
I remember the pain sometimes
It was crippling and devastating
I am now gone away from pain
I wait to be joined by those
