And when I think back to the day when we first
Stumbled across one another, red sneakers hanging off gutters
Cherry cola voice overs and dilated pupils
We led one another on to believe in the night sky of connect the dot constellations
You wanted to dissect me and peer into the insides of my lungs
Only to find witches breath and dandelions
Slicing iron vowels you locked your hands in mine
And we fell into the static of dreaming disease
The operating table broke away to reveal a sky that never existed
And we couldn't help but laugh at the irony
Because wishing was never an option

Kagekao sat on the roof of the house. Time had passed, and he was all healed and doing well again. There were still a few minor aches and pains, but they would go away in time.
It was the late afternoon, so the sky was filled with color as the sun prepared to drop below the horizon. The clouds appeared pink and orange, the sky was streaked with red and yellow, and the sun was a large orange sphere; it was the type of scene and color scheme that made one feel warm and content.
Kage gazed out at the sky, unaware of what was about to happen next. To him, it was just another normal day. Sun rose, sun set, everyone is alright.

Epiphanies and alike.The moments when you realise something so raw and real, it triggers an emotional train of thought, new to you. It is like waking up, in your waking life, from a dream segment you thought to be as true as anything else; due to perception.

Upon the weak who fear our stay
Its natural to feast and slay
Their hearts bleed in our jowls
We all wear masks and masquerade
As decent creatures, folks who pray
But deep inside, our demons play
Beneath cowardice cowls
The others claim to know the way
Those neutered, tamed, trained to obey
Condemning us for what we say
Look down at us with scowls
They lock our voices in a cage
Restrictions bind, we’re blind with rage
Liberate yourselves, you slaves
Let free your hungry howls
To the vermin calling me scoundrel
I will not heel, I will not bow
You’ll hear the hatred in my growl

The SecretKristen has a secret. She holds it in place with fine slivers of metal that clasp her hair tightly to her head, as if a wisp out of place would be it's undoing. She hides it under a gentle brush of blush across her cheek bones, as if the coral tone granted her the ability to create a new face for herself, a new body. She stuffs it up her sleeve with a freshly laundered hankerchief, knowing that every corner must be finely pressed until any flaw is smoothed away, undetectable.The Secret6 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

yet only darkness you see because you search so hard to find the light
When I look at the moon and stars and see a heritage in me as old as time itself
Why is it then when you peer into the night you see only objects?!
Insufficient glowing objects to be classified and categorized
The heavens are vast, there is no end
because there was never a beginning
Is this confusing to you?
Then maybe you've become too complicated
for the meaning to you ends with you (simply)
I am the silent one because I choose to observe the world in its neutrality
A favor neither one nor the other
For I have learned without the Sun the Moon would never shine
and nor would I
My roots are deep because I know where to plant them
Without saying a word I point the way
Subtle as the wind yet strong enough to move a mountain
I suppose I really am nothing more than a fool.

Her dreams would be big and her worries would be simple
And you’d say “She’ll be going places”
If you looked at a young girl with a toothy grin and a giddy laugh
Her pride would be strong and her conscience would be clear
And you’d say “She looks happy”
If you looked at a shy growing girl with her forehead covered and sleeves down to her fingertips
Her eyes would be distracted and her heart would be a drama queen
And you’d say “I don’t know who she is”

Neko!Sweden x Reader Chpt 2 It had been about a week and everything seemed fine. Berwald actually decided to look around your house, letting curiosity guide him about. Of coarse, this only happened on the fifth day. Otherwise he stayed close to you no matter what. When you went off to school, you'd see him looking out the window and watching you leave. While once you got back he'd be at the door to walk with you and listen to how your day had gone. He always stayed by your side, but never in your feet. Respecting your distance but keeping close to watch you intently. He was an odd endearing cat. You were sure that if he could, he'd be fallowing at your heels during school and glaring at the people who bullied you. Today you decided to bring him to the shelter with you. You didn't want to leave him waiting for you after having gone to school all of those days. He at least deserved a bit more time with you instead of waiting for you to come home.Neko!Sweden x Reader Chpt 218 hours ago in Settings More Like This

Once I let you go.
You said, "I'll come back."
And I said, "I'll be here for you."
How many years have passed?
I don't know.
But still I'm waiting for you.
The path of yours is now
Full of colors of the spring,
Still I live with a dream,
When will you come back?
In the noons of summer
When the sun shines bright,
I am still standing at your door,
To see your thirsty eyes.
In the rain,
When the fountains stream down to the rivers,
To join the endless sea,
My eyes follow their paths,
If you come back to me.
May be in an autumn,
You will come back;
I am here waiting for you forever.
May be the wind will sing

In full moon and twinkling stars
With still air and cool atmosphere
Bringing forth a halcyon mind
Restful bedtime of prime
On plush bed and snug blankets
Next to the cracked window
Giving entrance to the numbed twilight
In sleep, buds bloom
Creating astonishing worlds of wonder
Exploding in stunning technicolor
Paving the way to greater imagination
White sky emerges over the horizon
Eyes flutter to the source
Tweets give the morning tune
The mind wakes
The typewriter clicks and snaps
Leaves stir in the breath of air
Sun rays glare off the glass pane
Such a writers delight.
Emerald grass rolls in waves
