Preparations
This is the big day, I thought to myself. After all this time of running through the shadows, the princess and I would finally be able to let our love be known to the world. And on her birthday, no less.
I sat at the edge of my bed, staring down at my hand as I watched a pale red energy crackle from my palm. I balled my fist, letting the energy dissipate as I stood up and walked to my closet. I put on my best suit, a deep black leather armor with rose-golden accents. This was quite a special occasion, after all.
Once I had put on all my armor, I put my bow and quiver on my back and slid my daggers into their sheathes. This may be a day of festivities, but I can't afford to let my guard down around the princess. I must always be ready to protect her. I walked to the door and made my way out of my room. I walked through the empty corridors of our castle, travelling down to the king's lounging room. He and my mother were sitting calmly, enjoying a glass of wine on one of the couches. I ap

Literature
Bitter Cold
The bitter cold seeps through my leather
My hands begin to numb
Yet my cigarette beckons me to stay out with her
I watch the smoke float away in wisps, and I wonder
If they float to my love
As I dream I could
My love stays so distant, her form like a sentinel
Watching from the horizon
Always reassuring
I long to feel her warmth next to me
My head upon her soft, ebony bosom
Carrying my mind into heavenly nights
I know my love will be with me soon
Yet my sullen eyes stray to my watch
Whose hands move through tar pits of longing
So I light another cigarette, and brush ashes from my leather
A ritual to pass the time
Until my love warms me from this bitter cold.

Literature
There Is A War Going On For Your Mind
Media mavens mount surgical strikes from trapper keeper collages and online magazine racks
Cover girl cutouts throw ups pop-up ads infecting victims with silicone shrapnel
Worldwide passenger pigeons deploy paratroopers, now it's raining pornography
Lovers take shelter
Post-production debutantes pursue you in NASCAR chariots
They construct ransom letters from biblical passages and bleed mascara into the holy water supplies
There is a war going on for your mind
Industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crack heads
They flash logos and blast ghettos
Their embroidered neckties say "Stop Snitching"
Conscious rappers and whistle-blowers get stitches made of acupuncture needles and marionette strings
There is a war going on for your mind
Professional wrestlers and vice presidents want you to believe them
The desert sky is their blue screen
They superimpose explosions
They shout at you "Pay no attention to the men behind the barbed curtain, nor the craters beneath the draped flags

Literature
Sad and Lonely (Agony)
My pain is constant. My pain is sharp. I may put on a fake smile and tell people "everything is going great", but that is only a lie; a rouse to keep them from worrying about me. I am unable to escape this torment. I am lonely. I'm so lonely, it scares me. I fear this loneliness will be catastrophic. I look into myself and see only pain in my heart. I do not long for a time gone by. I do not wish for what I once had. I wish only for something that will end my suffering. I long for love. Ah yes, love. That elusive concept that has been absent from my life for so long. The feeling that almost seems foreign at this point; an idea that almost feels as if it never existed in the first place. I have tried and tried to find love, and what do I get? Rejection. Cold, heartbreaking rejection. Will I ever find love? That is to be seen. I have almost lost all hope in a happy, "fairy tale" ending to this turbulent story. I fear my strife will never be remedied. My pain, never alleviated. Until then

Literature
War Never Changes
War. War never changes.
Since the dawn of human kind, when our ancestors first discovered the killing power of rock and bone, blood has been spilled in the name of everything: from God to justice to simple, psychotic rage.
In the year 2077, after millennia of armed conflict, the destructive nature of man could sustain itself no longer. The world was plunged into an abyss of nuclear fire and radiation.
But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the world. Instead, the apocalypse was simply the prologue to another bloody chapter of human history. For man had succeeded in destroying the world - but war, war never changes.
In the early days, thousands were spared the horrors of the holocaust by taking refuge in enormous underground shelters, known as vaults. But when they emerged, they had only the hell of the wastes to greet them - all except those in Vault 101. For on that fateful day, when fire rained from the sky, the giant steel door of Vault 101 slid closed

This is the big day, I thought to myself. After all this time of running through the shadows, the princess and I would finally be able to let our love be known to the world. And on her birthday, no less.

I sat at the edge of my bed, staring down at my hand as I watched a pale red energy crackle from my palm. I balled my fist, letting the energy dissipate as I stood up and walked to my closet. I put on my best suit, a deep black leather armor with rose-golden accents. This was quite a special occasion, after all.

Once I had put on all my armor, I put my bow and quiver on my back and slid my daggers into their sheathes. This may be a day of festivities, but I can't afford to let my guard down around the princess. I must always be ready to protect her. I walked to the door and made my way out of my room. I walked through the empty corridors of our castle, travelling down to the king's lounging room. He and my mother were sitting calmly, enjoying a glass of wine on one of the couches. I approached them, bowing softly as I enter their line of sight. "I think this should suffice."

My mother jumped from her seat, running over to me and pulling me into a tight embrace. "Oh, my son. You look absolutely lovely! I'm sure her parents will adore you." She kissed my cheek and smiled up at me, adjusting the straps on my armor to make sure nothing was out of place. My father simply nodded in approval, a jovial smile plastered on his lips.

"I'll make my way to their castle via portal, make sure everything is in order by the time you arrive." I bowed again, opening a portal behind me as I backed into it and transported myself to the castle of my bride-to-be. I made my way through the elegant halls and rooms, trying to find where my love was preparing herself for the meeting.

After a few minutes of aimless wandering I picked up the voice of my darling, singing alone in one of the gardens. I made my way towards the voice, being careful not to alert her to my presence. I peeked around the corner, catching a glimpse of her as she sat pristine upon the small bench. I slowly walked behind her, trying not to scare her as I gently placed my hand on her shoulder. "Hello there, Momophily.."
 
She turned around, looking up at me with surprise. "Cruxician, what in the world are you doing?!" She asked, her eyes widened as they glowed a soft lavender.

I smiled softly, my finger gently tracing up her jaw as I looked down at her. She was so soft, so innocent. Her eyes still sparkled with that same light I fell in love with long ago. "My parents will be be on their way shortly. Is your family prepared?"

She nodded, placing her hand over mine. "Yes, they'll be waiting for them. But why are you sneaking around? If a guard sees you, we'd both be in trouble." She looked up at me with concern. I could never argue with those eyes.

"I just had to see you once more before the meeting. I'll go and take my place, and I'll see you soon." I kissed her lips softly, giving her a gently smile. Her lips were soft and sweet, like wisps of chocolate clouds. "I love you, my angel."

And with those words, I disappeared. I made my way through the halls, ensuring everything was in place before I went to the meeting place to wait for my parents. I could feel the day's potential radiating, Momophily and I standing on the precipice of a beautiful future. Now, I needed only to wait for the moment of truth.
