The lingering light was obliterated by the rapidly falling night. The once salmon and purple sky transformed into a vast expanse of jet-black that engulfed the town. A canopy of luminous stars materialized amongst the ocean of blackness. Some were dull, merely flickering into existence every now and then, but there was an adequate amount of shimmering stars to illuminate the dark, moonless night. The lake glistened, mirroring the dazzling assemblage of glittering stars and the luminescence from the moon. The faint wind brushed against the water's surface, the ripples ruffled the stillness of...
What do you do when the gray waves roll over your head, and your body is too weak to swim ashore. Do you panic and scream and try anyway to break the surface of the water? Do you silently cry and pray and tell your loved ones you love them one more time. Or because you know it's futile to fight submit to the lulling cold darkness kissing at your eyelids? Do you let the salty seawater drain into your lungs and choke to death's waiting arms?
Or do you float to the surface and wait for the storm to pass and sunlight to pierce your shivering mass of a body?.. You choose wisely.. You...
This is my attempt that being deep. Enjoy and I hope you have your minds blown away. ;3
Say we’re up in space, and we remove all the stars or anything that is luminous. Light would be nonexistent. Next we’ll remove all the planets, minerals, materials, chemicals, particles, atoms, and anything in between. We remove thing, we remove matter, we remove time, we remove life. We remove substance. We remove dark matter. We remove reality. What’s left? Space and Darkness. There is no color. There is no thing. There is nothingness. There is darkness and...
As I gasp for breath while I drown the pain in morphine
While my heart beats in tune with the rolling static hills on the metal screen
I lay on my deathbed reflecting on my life
I can say I had a good one although it was filled to the brim with tidal waves of hurt
I laughed in delight while running through the golden fields embracing the open skies and wearing a halo of warm sunshine
I climbed trees and swam in the salty emerald sea
But Moma was always working hard at the diner filling out orders for sugary milkshakes and greasy fries
"Tino?" A hand was probing me awake and I jolted upright, looking around my room and stopping at Laura crouching next to me. She looked a mix of angry, concerned and amused. I wasn't sure which one I needed to worry about facing most. I sighed and sat up from where I fell asleep among all my books and the map.
"Sorry. " I said putting in bookmarks and snapping all of the leather books shut, stacking them on top of each other. I was about to grab the map when I realized that the arrows and papers weren't there. I frantically began to look around, searching under everything near...
"You never did tell me. " I said as Donovan sat with me in my bunk room off the side of the horse stalls. It was a small room, but big enough for me. Pushed up against the corner farthest from the door, I had a bunk bed with my mattress, blankets and pillow sat on the top where I was now. On the bottom, I kept an old worn desk with a small bookshelf for me to keep my many studies. Across the desk was a huge map I haven't had time to look at. Donovan was sitting on the long-ish chest across from my bed that I had draped a deer hide over. There was a bathroom in one corner with a built in closet...
Thanks to that Vodka, I might fall asleep pretty quickly although knowing full well that I am probably going to have one hell of a headache in the morning. Since the- incident- at the Blackstrike League, Laura has been acting like a mother and it's been making me contemplate even going to the cafeteria anymore. I don't eat anyways. I felt my eye shut on me as I managed to plop down onto my bed.
Resting her head on my shoulder, I watched her as she watched the sky changing colors from where we sat on the roof of our three-story building. Our secret spot, just for the two of us....
"Donovan." Someone called my name again, but it was a different voice in my mind. The one that I will never hear again. Part of me was glad for that, but it echoed in my head every time my name was called. "No Donovan. It's mine." She had said when I pointed out that the particular sword she pulled out was Vorom's. It was the last time I had ever heard her say my name. When she was giving me hints on who she was that she had kept secret from me for God knows how long. We had only been back together not even a month when I lost her all over again. My thoughts were still stuck back in time. That...
"Hey! Get away from her!" We could hear Laura yelling and Inali leaned over the balcony, dodging an arrow that flew past her face. I looked out with her. There we saw Antonio and Laura holding off a huge group of red and black hoods, nearly failing, while Mel lay against the south wall, barely breathing. Inali backed up and I knew exactly what she was going to do.
"No Inali don't! You're not strong enough."
"Watch me." She challenged and ran forwards, jumping off the ledge. In the air, she began to release arrows, hitting most of the targets and landing with a...
