By the River A red-haired girl sat down next to the quiet river and gazed down at her reflection, trying to understand the meaning of the happenings throughout the past few days. With a glare she splashed the water, contorting the image and startling the speckled cat curled up next to her. "Is something wrong, Alicia?" She turned around to see her black-haired companion heading towards her, concern clouding his features. "It's nothing," She said, gently rubbing behind her cat's ears to calm him. The boy fixed her with a stare, his golden eyes shining with worry, and when he saw her lap and the ground around her splattered with water he sighed. "You can't worry too much about not remembering--" He tried to continue but Alicia had stood up, and again the power her presence gave off astounded him. "October, it has already been too long since I woke up here, not knowing who I was or where I came from. I know better than to hope to remember som
A Dance in the Garden A golden-furred kitten swatted playfully at a falling leaf and meowed when it became stuck on her claw. Shaking her paw in annoyance, and fully focused on shaking the leaf off, she whirled around in surprise when an amused chuckle sounded from behind her. Seeing the tall redhead she bolted towards him, the leaf forgotten and as she ran she transformed into a petite girl with the same golden hair and blue streaks running down from the hair tucked behind her ears. Hugging him tightly she laughed and tugged his hand gently towards a stone bench that was sitting on the edge of the clearing. Seated next to him she turned to face him, smiling brightly. "Isn't it pretty, Eiez?" She asked, looking up at his face with a playful grin. "Sure," He responded, gently tucking her bangs behind her ear, causing her to giggle. After a moment she laughed again and stood up, twirling in a circle a few times before giggling and pulling on his arm.
LifeA sad love,A walk of fameAll that comes in lifeAre those ups and downsBut once againYou must sit and wonderWhy life must beSo complicatedWhy the problems;Why the pests?Life is nothing but a churning river,Always changing,Never the sameYou expect what you knowYou cannot haveBut you wantWhatever you can getYou like to imagine you're importantWhile the tiny flea knows bestLife can be an enemyHated at bestOrLife can beThe friend you loveLife is many colorsSymbolizing many different thingsGreen and Blue and Black and OrangeThey all mean somethingTo you and meNever clear,But life can do thatIt's good at hidingThe secrets of our heartsIt takes a true friend to help unlockWhat the color's codeThe message we send ourselvesBy choice of what we wearLife isn't fair,Life isn't nice,But life is what it wantsAnd helps us be ourselves
Forever Friendship LostTo find a friendForever lostIs a blessing in disguiseFor once you thoughtThey were gone for goodYou realized what you missedThat playful smileOr teasing attitudeWas why you stuck aroundBut when they leave it hurts a lotAnd their return is much, much worseWhen you see themThe first reactionIs something like a screamThen you run and hug themAnd soon they'll have a new bruiseFor pissing you off,Scaring you like thatThey'll never forget your eyesSo full of anger,Hurt and hateThey'll want to stay foreverBut not for long will that wish lastFor once they leave,They'll leave againNo matter what they saySo cherish your time'Fore forever comes aboutBecause when it doesYou'll miss the peace and calmOf a normal life of no betrayalYour guard was downYou let them inYou have no one else to blameForever is a foreboding wordIn all its glory cameNothing but a simple warningOf what is soon to come again

NightmaresShe was sobbing, arms wrapped around the blood-soaked body of her brother. Someone was yelling. She couldn't hear the words but she knew they were directed at her. They pried her off of him. Suddenly the scene changed. It was that guard, he was aiming his gun, she went to grab it but- oh no.Zaphirix woke up with a start and quickly jumped out of bed, chanting silently to herself."Just a dream, just a dream," She was saying as she finally got outside. Breaking into a run she went into the forest, watching the trees fly past until she came to a stop in front of a large, scarred tree. She climbed into it and settled on a branch, trying to seek comfort from the memories."I should have just gone to Ery
She probably would have something to calm me down
" She rested her head against the trunk and closed her eyes, taking a deep breath."He's only been gone a few days
I can't start breaking down like this again
