Scattered MirrorWhy deafen me, silence of that long ago dear to myself? Why do you not comfort? Why does your before comforting pillow of solitude turn to rock that smothers me beneath its solid walls. Locking me and trapping me. Leaving me. Is this what I am to become? A speck of forgotten memory floating past hallways of remembrance that cradled our laughter of bygone years or an afterthought that only drifts to the core of your mind in the deadest of nights when all other company is gone? You said my name, once, and said it with glee, with fondness and love, that deceivingly genuine love.Scattered Mirror by sukuangtou
Well, will you say my name now? Will you look at me with that same bittersweet glint in your eyes and take me in with the open arms I loved and craved? Will you even look at me now?
My nails, in times past a lion’s claw, now clipped and cracked.
My hair a tumbling mess of seaweed swept in the seas revolting waves.
Eyes dripping with the wild chaos that dances around my ankles wherever I set f
Dark CornersHumanity, humbleness, hope; all words that lay stale on my tongue as if heavy rocks or stones that wish to crush my sentences into perfectly moulded letters. The looks of despair are like poison mixed with the swirls of sickly love it makes my stomach turn vile.

Dank darkness lingered on the ground, scuttling across damp earth, scattered cobble stones and curling around curved empty tombs like evil-eyed rats fat on the rich spoils of death. Heavy night flew above the twined limbs of the ruins, bleak stars high above, creating a shimmering cloak for the gigantic moon dripping light onto the delicate pools of rain water, creating swirls of tears on the surface in the ivory light. Striding shadows lean outwards painting dull, shaded soot what danced around the few trees growing. The innocent trickles of river water hitting the edges of land echoed in song off the surroundings, deathly quiet. Disturbing the scene a raven, thick feathered, drifts lazily across the sky, floating out across the water and towards the world beyond, like a silent reaper. Three feathers disturbed by the flapping motions of the creatures fine, charcoal wings tumble softly towards the ground, one landing on the stilled
