Perhaps only once a century, she emerges from the sea and leaves trails of saltwater on sidewalks and asphalt streets that normally never touch the ocean. Sometimes she slithers toward the closest drive-thru and orders a large milkshake and fries – never a burger. You can hear her slurping down her fast food close to the shore; even monsters of the deep get hungry.

It’s been a century since I’ve last seen you, and for that, I’m shamed. I miss the way you held my hand, and the way you looked at me after we finished our extracurriculars. I don’t miss the lies. This century has painted my horizons a new shade of orange-restart.

The Last Centurion- waiting twenty times his namesake.
I had to concede to his role in the middle rather than the side of what would have proven to be a torrid affair.
Weak and helpless, every story about his revival required because of his own faults.
Next to her
like a mirror
The humor he lacks
the adventures he
the story he couldn’t recreate
if he spent his life trying.
Yet he waits.
His own doubts and yet he never walks away.
The look in her eyes when the universe is sprawled before her, dismissive pat on the cheek. Now darling, why would you ever want to go home?
And yet he stood guard, no
swish of her hair, no
warmth of her skin, no
Only words and
enough of a war to
chip his sword and
dull his armor.
Shame for not seeing how different
strengths can be.

this century. or the last one, i can’t decide whether i would be happy there. i think if i had to choose, i would be stuck in victorian england, the 18th century. so much to learn, so many progressive ideas.. that would change the way the world turns. i think, i really think, i would like it there. after all, who wouldn’t want to meet charles dickens, the dreaded author of books i hated in highschool. however, as reluctant as i am to admit it, i like them now. for some reason his logic makes me laugh, his heavy handed satire hysterical.
yes i think the 18th century would be my thing.,

I feel like it’s been centuries since I’ve last seen you.
It’s only been a night, but everything has changed. The person sitting across from me is a whole world away from the person I saw yesterday.

I’ve been wandering for over a century, a ghost passing through lively towns. I’ve watched the world evolve, I’ve seen wars start and end. Being immortal is a blessing and a curse, and I wish I’d known that before I made the deal.

Days make centuries, decades fall. One moment in a millennia, crush the rushing suns.

Over a century ago,
I would barely be able to get these words on to paper.
I wouldn’t be allowed into a school that could teach me about the eloquence of language.
How to bring my thoughts to paper.
How to express the groaning of my heart.
A century ago, I would have been the first generation of free men in my lineage.
I would barely be able to be.
To be black in America

A century it may take,
for me to walk that stage again,
above proud parents,
and prouder scholars,
but a century of ostensible vigor
will mangle this sportsmen
into a book-men.
How i dare to shackle my frontal lobe
to a corner of a room for hours a day,
riddling my pencil until the deemed
answer screams back at me. Chipper.
I walked into the nebulous cloud of the future,
with a flexible umbrella, one that is prepared for hail

a hundred years. he opens his eyes and it’s a hundred years later; the war is over. everything around them has been decimated. jagged, razor-sharp edges of skyscrapers glisten under the sun like a mouth of teeth. like artifacts of history. rain falls without clouds. the land is empty. this is all there is left, he realizes, but then thunder cracks and it turns to gunshots and he opens his eyes and the war is around him again

When I think of a century, I think of a lifetime. Now this might be a little weird because most people don’t live to be a century old. But a select few do. I’m sitting here at work complaining that I have a 10 hour shift, when 10 hours is so insignificant compared to the 100 years that some people get to live. What amazing things you can do if you have 100 years.
By Kenley URL on 05.26.2017
Its 100 years thats a long time! someone would be dead or 100 if they were really healthy!
By Rebecca Buck on 05.26.2017
A century is so so long i bet i’d be dead if it’d had been a century long wow i like the word century its a fun word.

She was the sight of a century and more. An unfathomable being that I never thought I would ever see in my own lifetime- or for a thousand more for that matter. Her eyes were the sea and her hair the soft flowing wind, and her love the milky way that I couldn’t seem to rip my eyes from until the sun hit my skin in the morning for all of its hidden depths I uncovered only with every passing night.
By Morgan Riddell on 05.26.2017
a long time
what can happen
Will you make it to a century?
Not many people do
Do you want to make it to a century?
What would it feel like to be 100 years old?
What changes in 100 years?

A century is a long time. I’m not exactly sure how long it is,though. In movies sometimes they go from one point in time to a century later.
By Trinity on 05.26.2017

What I think of century is like someone died Very long time ago so that is a century.
By Nicole URL on 05.26.2017
I don’t like a century. A century is a hundred years. If I had to wait a century to see or do something, I wouldn’t be able to. I probably wouldn’t even live that long. A century is a long time.

Green fluorescent tea cups. Orange radium cooking pots. The past century has left us with many weighing frights that will carry the world to its demise.
By Macha Dubois on 05.26.2017
100… I could live a lifetime and not know love the way I do with you. You have made life sweeter and full of life. Without you I have just existed in a dark despair as the more depressing world has creeped into the everyday.
By Rachel on 05.26.2017
It had been over a century since it had felt anything like this. It was like infinity, dripping like honey dripping from his life, like those grand forests and wide oceans that it was doomed never to be able to touch. It was the delicate sweetness of a sunrise, gently folded into dreams of a child.
By TheAIndex URL on 05.26.2017
On the 20th… (it’s a musical.) I remember the commercial’s music for it. I also had a poster for it in my room.
100 too of course. I think of that.
I could live to be 100….
How the heck would I pay for all those years ahead?
