Lying silent, wrapped in meager sheets, the biting cold prevents me
From my lovely sleep, prolonging haunting visions left from tales of old.
Feeling through the darkness, grabbing books and tomes to ease the foulness
Creeping through the darkness of my heart: the fears that were untold.
Howling winds that chill and sear the bones are tearing through the cold,
Bitter, burning, biting cold.
Finding light to read the ancient words, the fear that goads me forwards
Halts my progress through the text, but pages and pages do still unfold.
Tales of myth and legend tell of Nazgul leaving none unrended
Speak as though it were but lege

Peribyss' eyes opened to blinding, white light. The warmth of a hearth embraced him, covered him and held him close. The glowing light comforted him, whispered in his ear sweet, honey coated words of comfort. He could hear the song birds chirping in his back field, creating a cacaphony of wondrous sounds with their harmony and unison. He saw his humble home in the middle a vast field, his vast field. The sea of verdant green stretched on into the horizon, where the rising sun smiled cordially upon him. "Welcome home," the light whispered softly in his ears, and for a moment he was at rest, until his eyes rea
Id, Superego, and the Three ProphetsId, Superego, and the Three MagistersId, Superego, and the Three Prophets by ~Peribyss
Many years after the Great Discernment,
The Three Orators, the Bear, Hare, and Serpent,
Disappeared and left the world to lead itself.
Yet the world still sought a wise leader's help.
The creatures combed their land for a wise man,
A hero with a steel fist and gentle hand.
In the beastly wild was no one at all,
Let alone a hero to heed their call.
Having searched from the depths to the mountain's shelf,
They found their hero must lie among themselves.
They searched each other and searched their hearts,
But it seemed leadership was a lost art.
They lamented the loss of the great Three,

Out in the vast and open wastes, where only wanderers were meant to find, the greatest and widest of oceans stretches from here to there. Name any point in any city, country, continent, or planet and the Abyss lies at its shores. Those who search will never find it and those who wander will never escape it. Those without a home and without a purpose are the only ones who may see its shimmering waters.
The Abyss isn't like other bodies of water. It runs like a river but stretches like an ocean. It runs red like the riders that you may find along its banks, and is deep and navy blue like the vast night sky. Its width and b

"Fat," she said. "I'm fat?"
"I'm a machine. Machines don't lie."
"But I'm ten."
"Ten and fat."
"But how can you tell? There's gotta be some mistake."
"Okay, kid, listen up. I've got your goddamn height and BMI right here. Right here inside me.
And according to my records, you suck at boxing, you suck at running, your physical age is that of a 48-year-old male and you suck at Brawl."
"Hey, you're being mean!"
"I'm not mean. I'm a machine. Can't take playing with me? If you don't like it then take yourself somewhere else and maybe go and play with the other babies ou

God's robes flapped around him as he looked over the edge and onto the street below.
"Don't do it! Don't do it!" cried the security guard behind him.
God said nothing, climbing onto the raised edge of the building. Five storeys below, people were beginning to take notice.
"Jesus Christ! Look!
"Oh my god!"
"Where's my camera?"
He turned and faced the security guard, who stopped walking and gazed upon the face of God. He'd been crying.
"But... why? You've got so much to live for..."
God gave a wan smile. "So have all of you."
He spread his arms wide, closed his eyes and breathed a deep sigh, falling back and off the building.
