She looked up at the watchtower. She had never done that before. All she could remember was being chained like an animal in that tiny room for years on end. They beat her, the starved her, they used her…but it was all ok now, she was looking up.

She looked across the room, across the window, across the bay. She could see her dad on his at the watchtower. But, oh, dear girl, he could watch a lot more people from where he was.

Lindsay stood at the top of the watchtower,dressed in all black. She had to escape. This life was worse than she expected! She braced herself and flung herself over the top.

He stood by the watchtower, gazing out into the vast expanse of the ocean, wondering what went wrong in the recent conversation he had. He loved Danny from the bottom of his heart, and yet, couldn’t let go of the fact that he had a history with Andrew, another person that he loves. He wondered if what he was thinking was right, if it was possible to love two people at the same time. He definitely knew that it wasn’t fair, that both men, as wonderful as they are, would not be able to handle the fact that there was another person in the background, possibly vying for the same man, him. What should he do?
It’s odd how time changes a person. One moment he’s in the closet, forcing himself to date women for the sake of not being ridiculed by society. Next moment, he has accepted himself, and gotten a whole series of men lining up to date him, to treat him like a prince, to make him feel special. The thoughts running through his head was giving him a headache.

i take a vista-view, i climb high to make sure my dreams stay within sight, stay within my memory… then i climb back down and dig the earth, and it’s good, because my mind is staying focused on the prize, and that focus sends life into everything i do.

The guard stood at the top of the watchtower watching over the medieval city. Suddenly a dragon flew over the tower and started destroying the town. Unfortunately, the watchtower did not have any stairs, so the guard was helpless in helping the city from being destroyed.

As I look down on the town where my life revives vitality,
the citizenry glares at me up on above, irrationality,
a gaze of envy, splitting time as does a freckle on a hair,
surging from quick retorts, anxious to polish my glasses,
From the watchtower distance does not halt,
a crickets chirping is heard by neighbors galor,
a dogs weeping creeps cracks of brick walls,
must I stay up high to shun their grasping claws,
for down below, where I see my self equal, they yearn,
with gnarls that an inferno can only reckon
I hear, I hear,
trying to smear swollen whiteness of my burnt finger.

The wind blew in her face causing tears to form in her eyes. The Watch Tower was miles from the town centre. Rumour was it was haunted, abandoned. Katie never believed it, she knew for a fact it was all for publicity.

Her golden hair lifted in the breeze coming through the cobblestone-framed window. The view it offered was glorious: the mountains of Azure framing the blue sky in the far-off distance, the forest of Wanderers nestled at the stony feet, and then the open field stretching to the castle gates.
“It’s beautiful, Stefan.” She spoke to the boy beside her.
By Rosheen on 06.13.2014
She sticks her eyes to the watchtower, her usual regimine, that did cause distraction upon flipping to someone new. A man, who stood above the cherishable yellow and blue window chimes, he glowered back with a fiery zeal. From then on, man met women, love met its destiny.
She didn’t know what she was looking for, just that she would die if she failed to find it. Elisavet had warned her of the repercussions of a failed mission, and she replayed her ominous words over and over in her mind: “If you don’t find it, they will find you.”
They could have offered her a bit more guidance. Now she was stuck, fighting for her life — and against what?

All along the watchtower princesses came and went. We were all speechless as they flocked in full royal attire, head-to-toe, glowing, glistening and happy.
By Nickie on 06.13.2014
The shadow was protected by a layer of dark. A shroud of coverage that could not be penetrated. The light from the watchtower. Searching. Livid. Could not pierce the dark and spy the shadow creeping closer and closer to its mark.
By Sarah on 06.13.2014
All along the watch tower….Maybe there is no way out of here…..We may just keep circulating. Soulds, energy, or just pure nothingness and life. Bounching around this plane of existance forever. It seems to me all the people who think there is a way out of here into an after life…are the ones that casue all the trouble.

All along the watchtower, Jimi Hendrix said.
Though I prefer the rigidness of a big stable stone watchtower to Jimi’s screaming tones.
The tower that watches for ships and has a strong light and not the tower that watches for enemies, for enemies do not exist.

All along, I should have known. They were not our protectors, our gaurdians ever watchful. We were their pets. Nothing more than cattle kept in their cage. Disposible, worthless, just amusment.
By EV Hadley on 06.13.2014
eren looks up at the tall tower and sees a soft, sullen face staring back at him from a window.
“hey!” he calls out, waving a hand up at the man. “i’m here to rescue you!”
eren is ignored, save for the man grimacing down at him. “hey! can you hear me?!”
“shut the hell up down there!” levi calls back. “i’m trying to read and have tea. if you’re going to break me out of here, come back in an hour.”
eren stares up at him, expression incredulous. is this really his princess…?
By heartful on 06.13.2014
It loomed, just in the periphrial of your vision, but you weren’t meant to see it. No one was. Eyes cast downward as they passed, mumbling incoheriant pleasentries. But it was always there, always watching. Just don’t look back and you’ll be alright.
And I ran forward, trying to get to the watchtower. I don’t know why I needed to get there, but I felt a strong feeling coming from the tower. I could hear the footsteps behind me, chasing me. I don’t know why they were chasing me, but then again, I don’t remember anything from the past four days.
By Amy on 06.13.2014
there are watch towers by prisons and they usually have guards in them and sometimes have lights on them. They might also be connected by fences. I always associate them with prisons. Do they have watch towers in places besides around prisons? I’d have to look it up.
By Julia on 06.13.2014
They tower over us like vultures ready to attack. I know they won’t but to know they can is an unappealing sense of fear. They look so dominant up in their watchtower. They may think they’re better than us, but we know better. We are not arrogant… we may not be strong… but one day we will gain freedom… whatever that is.
By Annabelle Stewart on 06.13.2014
Along the watchtower solders waited for the opposing army to come. Towers immense and formidable against the weather and with-standing time itself. One to another they connected by solid stone walls to oppress the barbarian tribes. Those barbarian tribes who where only looking to preserve their culture. Soldiers leaving in wake young women and children for what?
Emily waited at home well aware of her husbands fate.

I was waiting by the watchtower, looking around to make sure nobody had followed me. After I waited for a while I entered the watchtower. And now my adventure begins.

Teal, like the deep blue. Aquamarine, like the bay, crystal hues. Watchtower, hover, dive. Watch her. Come back up alive.

as i was walking, i took a glance up and i saw the most amazing sight. what color was it? i dont even know what it was. i think it was a watchtower. i dont even know what a watchtower is. is it a tower that you watch? is it a watch that you tower over? im not even close to sure what it is.

as I lay dying, in front of the vast majority of heavens above me and down under, existance of the universe, blinked slowly and fell away from my body. And it happened in vantage point of god’s watchtower.

The man looked up from the controls and took a look at the ocean. A ship was coming. Next thing he knew, a canon was coming his way. With his last breath, he turned off the light and closed his eyes.

There was a watchtower inhabitet by watchman. His role was to watch over Queen Alicia’s realm day and night. He was good at this role. The queen gave him a reward.

when i was a child, my mother used to sing all along the watchtower to me to make me fall asleep. she sang janis joplin while she washed the dishes, and joni mitchell while she brushed my hair. she made the best pie.

There must be some kind of way out of here,
Said the joker to the thief,
There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief.
Business men – they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the wine
Nobody of it is worth.
No reason to get excited,
The thief – he kindly spoke,
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour’s getting late.
All along the watchtower
Princess kept the view
While all the women came
And went bare-foot servants too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl, hey.
When sit and look outside of my window on the 22nd floor in brooklyn, ny, sometimes I feel as if I am on top of the world. Brooklyn is changing, and some say that it will soon be the new Manhattan. Ive only been here for about a month so I have no idea what this city has in store for me. I am eager to meet new people and expand my network. The more i know, the higher I rise, which again, reminds me of a watch tower. Currently, because I am new to the city, I am feeling a bit like an island in the middle of the ocean, observing everything around me and trying to determine where I fit into the large abyss of commotion around me. Although it may be lonely at times, I still find peace in knowing that I am on the right track and moving closing to my ideal life. I definitely and testing my boundaries and my comfort zone, which, in my opinion, means that I am progressing and evolving into the brave, strong, intelligent, influential, successful person that I want to me. I am eager to start my rotational program that will open up a variety of doors for me and I can’t wait to learn about topics that I don’t even know that I do not know. Knowledge is limitless and I plan to soak up as much as I can while I am on this earth and pass it on.

The view from the top is not as impressive now as it once was; it’s hard to believe that this was once a necessary defence against invaders. Nothing remains but cracked earth for miles, and not a soul to be seen

There once was a lonely old man that lived in a watchtower next to the sea.

“Get to the watchtower, Marie, hurry!” cried Isabel, struggling to maintain her balance on the jagged rocks. She could still feel blood oozing from the wound on her leg, and her vision started to blur. “Get the message to Bartholomew…just go.” And then, she stumbled.
“I’m not leaving you!” Marie yelled, wind blowing her hair every which way and rain splattering her face. She ran down the short path, hoisting the unconscious girl on her back. “We go together, or not at all.”

Watchtowers are things overlooking towns,villages,etc. They are building but noble guards themselves. People look up and admire them. They can be humanlike if you interpret it that way. Tall and brave.

i am afraid of why they are watching. what are you watching for
so high up
able to see all
or innocence that will soon be unfairly lost
due to a war?

I drive home on a valley road
high on a rusted hill
exploding wild green
in the heavy rain
northwest twenty miles
to the sea
southwest twenty three
to the city
and I thirst for you
over all things
I could lay the rainbow
in the river
bite the sun
like an apple
but i am dust
until we two
