towers

I built my tower,
Brick-by-brick,
Higher, higher.
I reached for the sun.
But then, you pulled out
One brick from under me.
I was angry, I fought you, I hated you.
And I fell,
but my anger faded away,
As I realized my wings had been melting.
So I flew to you,
Using wings I’d forgotten,
And together we kept each other
From flying too close to the sun.

lure

“Curiosity killed the cat,” I told her.
“But satisfaction brought it back,” she retorted.
“The place feeds off of curoosity. The more curious you are, the easier it is to lure you in.”
“It’s a mysterious labyrinth, of course curious people are attracted to it.”
“It’s more than that, Mae.”
“You’re trying to tell me a maze is alive?”
“Perhaps. No one who goes in ever comes back.”
“Well, maybe they don’t want to come back.”
“If you went in, and weren’t eaten alive by something, and instead came across a beautiful haven full of the people who have gone missing over the years, would you want to come back?”
“Only for you, my love.”
I don’t know what she found in there, but I’m about to find out. She’s been missing for over a month.
I steel myself and wonder if the maze will let me in.
For what draws me to it is not curiosity, but love.

thirst

In the morning there was this dryness of the mouth. Everyday, water was the only thing I wanted, to make sure my tongue didn’t feel like sandpaper. I needed it, two, three glasses, until I finally felt sated. That night my glass would be filled with something different and the next morning, I’d be thirsty again.

cyclical

I don’t like circles. They go round and round and it’s impossible to come out. You dance and swirl and sing and go, but you can’t go out.
I don’t like circles. They’re constraining and prisons. They are closed and impossible to come out of.

elegance

She never wore anything but white or black. A wedding or a funeral, she always thought of those occasions. Was it a happy moment, or a sad one. She didn’t care, those were her colors, the ones she always went to, the colors of elegance, of beauty. She didn’t care about others.

pageant

Misunderstood game for little girls and feminine boys. Though often parents try to reflect upon their childs glory. There seems to be a lot of glory in this “sport”. Many girls win tiaras. Boosts their self esteem.

step

It was your fault this time. I always closed the door behind you, but no, I won’t do it again.

Your hands are cold. Your eyes are dim. And I don’t care anymore. I just don’t.

band

It’s so fucking retarded. It always is when we talk that way.

Your word was the last one and you left me wondering. Yes, I had cried, and yes, I had blamed you. Our union didn’t seem like the perfect setting anymore, and even though I had apologized for a million and one times, you still just walked away.

thunder

“Never hit me again!”
That’s what you shout at me.
That’s what you always shout at me.

Always.

Even though I’ve never even laid a finger on your frail skin.

megaphone

Run, run, don’t turn back.
Regret is the feeling you greatly lack.

cigarette

Her hands tremble as I look down to her. We are the only persons on the busstop, and I feel kind of sorry for her.

Her lips are painted fiery red in hopes to make her look like a woman, and I can’t think of anything else than how badly she has failed.

bow

It is enough, Lin. It is enough.

I cannot raise my eyes from the strikingly red carpet. The words of my noble Emperor echo in my head and the silence deafens my ears. This is not right.

etiquette

She touches me.

She touches me down there where no one else dares to even look at.

I can smell her sweet perfume. It reminds me of those pink and sticky candybars I used to eat as a child.

neck

He buried his face in her neck, breathing in the sweet scent of her shampoo. “have you never noticed how wonderful it smells?” he muttered.
“of course i did, silly. why else would i buy it time and time again.”
he grinned against the warm skin of her throat. “to please me, of course.” she giggled.
