I don't know if that's what he wanted to ask me, but it's some-
thing everybody wants-for someone to see the hurt done to them and set it down like it matters.

from the hand of God
weighing down on him.
it hurts to find out
nothing is truly mine
that i have nothing

Timetime is a runner never ceasing
if you wish to have a word
you must spot him and jog beside, ready to sprint at any time.
Time grabbed Child's Heart
and held her in an iron grip as

My lovely tomboyShe had never seen the sun

how will i rest my head?

Cyan"you really loved him, didn't you?" Belial gazed at Murmur from the side. She watched him look down at his hands;
"there's no such thing as love."
Belial's heart seemed to deflate and sink like a balloon, she didn't know why.
"but i...." Murmur turned his eyes to the blank wall in front of him, "miss him."
He spoke quickly, as if those words were food that had given him a bad taste and he wanted them out of his mouth, out of his mind.

BravelessNewWorld"saver the day" said the narrator, "with card games and pallor tricks"
that day, the sun wasnt too bad and there was a cool breeze that stopped by every few seconds to caress a girl who stood waiting by a broken telephone booth on the side of a back road called "xross," which traveled all the way from DDMMYYY to uPTin and had narrow alleyways that were sequestered and hidden from any light seeing eye. val waited patiently for them, watching cars that looked even sketchier then she did, drive past for about seven minutes until the two mediums she was expecting arrived. andrew, who was holding what looked like a pistol-sized water gun, looked her up and down and then snickered at the ground "she looks like a fucking hooker" koral, who was tall and beautiful and carrying a backpack, nodded indifferently.
val reached into the bag that was slung from her shoulder, "i am a fucking hooker" she said simply. Then she handed them each a small plastic bag, about the size of a playing card.

flying over large and loud with silent noise, like whales.
Our one house seemed to be a whole town
I was the only one who survived
everyone was dead, except me. out of the
smoking chaos and shifting rubble
my father's old bible was the only thing left
the bible he said was so old it was signed by jesus
i carried that bible away from the remains of our house
but it burned my hands
demons followed me with hungry mouths like i was carrying a sack of meat
the devil rolled a die, i was being used to settle one of his bets
god himself pointed down from the sky
a bloody jesus hung on the cross, eyes closed
then i began to drown
