Fear of Unknown

FREE WRITING

A darkness akin to velvet lays just outside our humming lights.

Buzzing with life, and yet unknown still to our minds.

Filled with terrors fantastic, never felt before by men and women. 

The darkness peering back sighs and narrows her eyes.

Unaware we wonder what we see in our reflections.

Thoughtless Abyss

FREE WRITING

Put your thoughts on paper, 
Burn the words in your mind, 
Carve them into your skin, 
Never live another lie. 

Put the music on louder, 
Drown out all your thoughts,
For the beautiful and the thoughtless are the happiest,
And in language you are both beautiful and thoughtless.

Fly Into The Sun (Memento Mori)

Memento Mori - Remember You Will Die

Some days I can feel death chasing my heels, 
On wings of iron and steel, 
Silently drawing nearer, stalking me with cold hands and icy thoughts. 

Memento Mori

Other days I can feel the wind beneath my feet,
As I escape from him, only just,
But isn't 'only just' just enough for the moment?
The3 courage to defy him yet another day.

Memento Mori

Set sail on music loud enough to deafen you,  ...

Ball, Interupted, Burial, Incomplete

FREE WRITING

The walls are covered in black velvet,
Pulling all the feeble light from the room.

Candelabras send waves of flickering firelight around the room,
Orange and red and yellow dancers.

The women wear elaborate costumes, 
Dresses of satin and velvet with corsets, or suits.

The men pull them off their feet as eerie music plays,
Masked and mysterious.

The moon shines through the stained glass window,
Panes of blue light shine onto the floor.

Roses are arranged on the tables...

Don't dismiss me!
You're life is busy, I get that. You have problems, I get that. Everyone does. Even Kids. 

Don't invalidate me!
You have a job, a future. If I don't do well in this, I won't. The pressure is crushing me.

Don't patronize me!
I won't respect you based on your age. Grow up, authority doesn't make you a good person.

Don't dismiss her!
She has a valid point. You’re older than her, doesn't mean she isn't right.

One Day, Someday, Soon, I Will Be Freed

FREE WRITING

One day I will escape this, 
Freedom in my grasp, 
Wings outstretched and my face lifted toward the sky. 

One day I will fly,
On wings of wax bound with steel, 
That day shall bring my kismet closer. 

One day I shall meet the Lord Of The Abyss,
The unknown we face beyond our graves, 
I shall greet him with outstretched arms. 

Soon this will happen for me,
As it has for every soul that has lived,
And every soul...

I love this, it may even convince me to watch a few Disney movies. (I laughed at the royal llama bit.)

Fracture

FREE WRITING

I am a pessimist, 
Which I'm sure you can tell.

It's not a problem, 
Sure I jump to the worst conclusion.

At least I can plan and be cautious, 
Even if its unlikely. 

I don't need to be fixed, 
It's just the way I am. 

After all, optimism is just as deadly,
Isn't it?

A fractured view of the world either way,
Everyone is good, everyone is a terrible person. 

At least pessimism comes with benefits, 
I think?

I'm not...
