Anarchy for Broken Hearts

Reality was nothing more than a myth to Darren. Tangible objects and logical notions wavered on solid ground as he tried to detail his life doctrine. Perhaps onto a parchment he’d list the contentions of doubt. Upon a yellowed note he’d post onto a wall the reason why everything he…

Shoulders for the Rain

Were if not for the frost, I would have left. Were it not for the rain, I would have scampered. But, existing in such an unbalanced world of celestial paragons and mortal souls, I found the sky’s sympathy most welcoming. It shared the same dreariness as I – the same…

Council of the Dejected

I think it be best we all gather The minds of the wise, the hearts of the broken And form a council of dejected – Souls torn, emotions dead To comfort those new to such a wicked game I remember my pain, as old as it was But when I…

Winds Pass my Keep

Are you listening, calm breeze? Do hear my farewell I need you to pass on When I am too weak to tell Can you hear my faint whisper? Keep close, for it is your’s To you, I confide My great love from before My heart is left broken It cannot…

Shadow of a Dream

In unlikely hands, I was presented to a forgotten memory. I thought little of it at first, but as I followed the world down in rest, the sapphire of such thought beguiled an immediate focus I had never given before. It was under the crepuscular blanket of night I gradually…

The Roman Valentine

I arranged to meet at Central Het Park. ++++++++++“Come at midnight,” I told her gratifyingly. “I know just the way to end our Valentine’s.” Despite the unfortunate exhaustion that comes with eventful days, Lily eagerly agreed. This was the finishing touch–the lovely velvet bow that wraps all the cards, flowers,…

My Red Box

I shot up. The gentle drift of the morning air startled me from my quiet dormancy. I knew it was more a dormancy rather a sleep, for I knew not where I was or what I was doing. The room appeared rather pleasant. I spread my fingers along the bed…

The Mirror: Banner Design

I was eating my lunch when a school journalist confronted me. “I need you to make use a banner right now!” he cried. “Not a problem,” I said. Thirty minutes later, I’d beat the school newspaper deadline. A round of applause and hugs, but I don’t mind the attention. :D…

Memory Rain

It was raining that one day I found myself idle. Ennui crept upon me as quietly as shadow, and I ventured to stare across the room. The classroom was dull with silence – only the simple drips and patters of the rain’s journey from the sky sounded in the shallow…

The Manor’s Guest 2

In centuries of Fychester tradition, sunlight had never been so harshly rebuked. Lord Darius ached from last night’s, well, childish tantrum of wallowing fervor — he would never again embarrass himself. Not in front of Anderston. He eased himself up against his pillows, intricately woven by a tailor up north,…

Verse XXXXIV – XXXXVIII 2011

Verse XXXXIV Our love… it’s like broken glass Sharp and rugged, shattered and worthless As natural as night to day, we pass by one other Unaware of my presence, unaware of yours Why do you ignore each other so? A tacitly-turned table, rotated remote and away It’s too high –…
