    Summary

    Daniel was banished to a mission in the Antarctic. He brushes sigils into the snow with his fingers and the sun never rises.

    David was whisked away into the forest, never meaning to intrude. He is thrown down cliffs and sleeps through the scorching days, insects crawling and buzzing even when he is not paying attention.

    They are two different weather patterns, given neither pity nor time to rest. One is prepared for the storm, but still falls.

    Summary

    There’s nothing wrong with George. Everyone tells him so. But nobody has ever known anything because if nothing was wrong with George, he wouldn’t be suffering the way he is, rosary around his neck more like a collar or a rope, tying him to a lady he can’t love and a man he’s not allowed to love.

    George’s God is a lover of purity, and he forgives him. George’s lover is purity incarnate, and she loves him sweeter than he deserves. George’s guilty pleasure has eyes the color of ivy and damnation and apples that fall from trees too early.

    Come Sunday, George will be gone, gone, gone.

    Summary

    And stars don’t kiss boys.

    Stars don’t kiss anybody. They’re fuming balls of toxic gas burning so hot they melt the skin of anyone who gets too close.

    Stars are lonely in the vast expanse of the universe.

    Summary

    This is a series of essays I wrote a few years ago. Most of them are poetic enough that I thought I'd share.

    Look to tags for a sense of the essay. Excuse the titles.

    No. 2.

    "The night around me is clear and dark, with only a halfmoon attended by a bare smattering of stars, just enough to claim this city has a night sky."

    Summary

    Realism is an illusion, after all, a mosaic of dabs and splotches of reds and whites. Still nature, deer rutting – things people look at and nod in understanding, then promptly forget.
    She doesn't like to be forgotten.
    Gwen is in a pickle. And in Paris.

    Summary

    Sora perks up. His eyes are a shiny blue. “Oh? You think so?” he asks, as if the ends of his pants don’t drag on the sand, as though his gloves aren’t catching on his fingertips, as though tragedy isn’t waiting to burst from its shell underneath his skin. “Other people say they suit me just fine.”

    Summary

    This must have been what Icarus felt like, Tooru thinks, before he fell from flying so close to the sun.

    Her fingers skim over Hajime’s cheek, and it feels like they’re burning from Hajime’s warmth, scorched by the heat of touching a star. Hajime is not meant to be touched, at least by the likes of Tooru, and Tooru feels like she’s on the brink of falling from where she soars in the sky and plunging into the ocean’s unending depths.

    -

    Tooru has been afraid to face the truth of who she is all her life, but maybe Hajime is worth risking it all for.

    Summary

    The concept of inevitability scares Dream almost as much as the idea of moving on does. He fixates on them both, turns them over and over in his head until his waking moments and unconscious mind is consumed by thoughts of inevitability and moving on and fear. 

    The sun waits for Dream outside of the curtains, impatiently slithering through the gaps in the fabric in the early mornings when it’s just begun to rise. Dream dances out of the light, and in his attempts to dodge the sun, he misses things gone by, like the glory days and his friends’ birthdays and a time when he did not feel as exhausted living as he does now.

    Dream thinks there is something horrifyingly addicting about feeling sorry for himself. Dream thinks every moment he spends not doing so feels an awful lot like withdrawal.

    Summary

    A riptide, or rip current was a movement of water that happened in the ocean. If a swimmer got caught in it, they would get swept out to sea. It was deadly, impossible to fight, and terrifying. The only way to escape one, was to swim horizontally out, parallel to the shore. Eventually, you would be able to escape the dangerous waters and swim back in. Riptides were one reason Sakusa Kiyoomi hated the beach. They were also one of his life philosophies.

    Summary

    Every human being is born with a darkness inside them, but the darkness Xiao Xingchen has always known is far more sinister and insidious, seemingly twined with the gold that flows through his meridians and pools in his core.

    Summary

    It called him, the darkness below him.

    He felt earth beneath his feet, but before him… nothing. And it spoke to him, whispered gentle things to him, promised him relief, told him he would be okay. He took a step forwards, sobbing under his breath at the weight of the approval of the darkness at his arrival and put one foot out over the dark void, and let it take him, embrace him.

    The darkness tugs at Frodo long after the destruction of the Ring.

    Rated Mature for something akin to a suicide attempt.
