That no life lives for ever;
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
Winds somewhere safe to see
-from The Garden of Prosperine by Algernon Charles Swinburne

Message from Writer

When we drive away in secret
You'll be a volunteer
So don't scream when we take you
The world is quiet here.

    Cold creeps up my spine, its icy fangs penetrating deeper than any wolf’s. This glacial tundra has sucked all the warmth from my limbs, but I know I must keep moving or else the cold will take me for its own. But I’m so, so tired, and my legs finally buckle beneath me and I drop face down onto the ice. I push my hands against the ice, but the combination of my exhausted body and the ruthless wind prevents...

i whisper in the wind

FREE WRITING

what are your secrets
i whisper in the wind

this world of yours,
you gambol around it
ever changing

you know our greatest laments
and sorrows
our joys
and triumphs

you carry ghosts 
from long ago
flying on your back
like eagles

you have lasted
so
so
long

we do not yet know
what secrets you hold
what demons you hide
what angels you keep from us

i smile as
i whisper to the wind.

But this was totally and absolutely real. I started having feelings for him in about September. Let's call him Daniel.
