Agony like shattered memories coughing out my throat. Razors in my lungs, in my mouth; acid in my eyes to carve trails down my cheeks.
Agony like chains around my bones, tugging at my knees until they fail and the ground rushes to meet me. Steel around my mind, loops of thought capturing my will, making me as helpless as a bird without wings.
Agony, agony; the sky is shattering into multicolored fragments; filaments of some reality that is no longer mine. Isolation, desolation; time stutters in its even steps and gasps, clutching its heart and retching along the cosmic tunnels that used to carry me like flotsam. But now I'm lost, lost to space, lost to feeling until I am no longer bound to my broken body.
Agony, agony... when will it end?

She plays, her fingers dancing along the white steps, the black voids which cry a fractured tune against the spirals of each fingerprint. Her soul flows into each refrain, each beat marked by the simplest kind of heartache.
To play, to speak, to play, oh what's the difference anymore! It's just as well that she'll only be declared mute when her fingers are shot with arthritis enough to discourage her, or she should lose the fingers altogether.
To speak, to play, to speak, to play... oh how she can play, but cannot speak. Can she speak? Perhaps, perhaps it's still buried in her throat; a voice like songbirds and snowfall and wind battering trees. Perhaps she could be, perhaps she could be something again, and not dance with her fingers but with her voice. She had the most beautiful voice, but she was mute all the same. She hasn't learned how to turn her words from folly into fruit, from listless sugar drooling from her gums to things of wings with hearts in their throats. But that she c

Hello you :happybounce: I have a passion for learning new things, and love to experiment with art forms. Creative writing is my life, and I’m in the process of writing several novels. There’s nothing I enjoy more than exploring our creative inclinations and connecting with those who feel the same.


Good morning!

I went to the zoo last week and got some pictures :D The animals generally looked like they were planning prison escapes. It was a super fun time :3

In other news, there will be a flood of chibis soon when I un-lazify myself and get them up. And to celebrate the life of Club Penguin (my childhood) I'm going to be posting a few Club Penguin themed pieces in various media. Hope you're all doing well!

  • Reading: I'll Give you the Sun
  • Playing: Subnautica
  • Eating: Blueberries
