In Search of the Goddess
I wander through quiet woods, tears of frustration and anguish streaming down my face. I feel lost and afraid, but something pushes me to blindly venture into the unknown.  I stumble over roots and hear the crunching of gravel and hardened soil beneath my feet as I hurriedly make my way into the dark forest. I feel a force that is propelling me onward, and yet I do not know where it is I’m going. Finally I fall to my knees amid a bed of flowers, unable to run any further. I look up into the night sky, the pale moonlight cascading across wisping clouds. Nothing but the sound of a calm breeze flowing through the leaves penetrates the silence of the tranquil forest. I let out a cry of desperation, searching in vain for a sign of hope through the bleak nothingness.
And through that darkness comes a voice, Her voice. A voice that is maternal and ethereal, that touches my very soul. A voice that I have never heard before, and yet seems so familiar. A voice that holds immense power

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

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

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

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

I wander through quiet woods, tears of frustration and anguish streaming down my face. I feel lost and afraid, but something pushes me to blindly venture into the unknown.  I stumble over roots and hear the crunching of gravel and hardened soil beneath my feet as I hurriedly make my way into the dark forest. I feel a force that is propelling me onward, and yet I do not know where it is I’m going. Finally I fall to my knees amid a bed of flowers, unable to run any further. I look up into the night sky, the pale moonlight cascading across wisping clouds. Nothing but the sound of a calm breeze flowing through the leaves penetrates the silence of the tranquil forest. I let out a cry of desperation, searching in vain for a sign of hope through the bleak nothingness.

And through that darkness comes a voice, Her voice. A voice that is maternal and ethereal, that touches my very soul. A voice that I have never heard before, and yet seems so familiar. A voice that holds immense power, and yet a feeling of tenderness. I hear Her speak to me, as though She’s known me my whole life. “I am with you, my child. You have nothing to fear. Your search is nearly over, and soon you shall know the touch of my power. I am your Goddess.

A sudden chill runs down my spine, my hands beginning to tremble as Her comforting words float through my mind. She feels close, as though She is whispering these words into my ear. And yet, I also feel as though I am not yet close to her. I quickly rise to my feet, hoping to look upon whomever the heavenly voice is coming from. As I look around for Her a faint smoke weaves through the trees, obscuring everything in sight. I feel the pleasant scent of the smoke begin to calm me, lulling me into a feeling of security in Her presence. “What is your name, my Goddess?” I call out. “I must know, that I may find my way to you!”

A moment of silence befalls the forest, a moment which feels like an eternity. The breeze suddenly goes away leaving no sound but my heart, pounding as though it would burst from my chest. Finally, She speaks again. “You will know my name, in time. Your spirit mate is your guide, she will help you to find your way. I have willed the two of you together, that you may both know my embrace. Once you have found me, all will be as it is destined to be. Have patience, my child. I will always be with you, and soon enough you will know who I am.

And with those words I feel her presence fade away, the smoke rolling back into the inky night. The gentle breeze returns to my ears, and I look around to find the forest once again still and peaceful. I feel a wave of longing wash over me as I slowly fall back to my knees, Her words echoing through my mind. I sit in the bed of flowers, contemplating what She told me and trying to make sense of it all. As I close my eyes and take a deep breath, I begin to feel myself becoming one with the nature around me. The Goddess wants me to find my way to her, and I will stop at nothing until I do.

I know that my journey is far from over, that I must know more before She will grace me with her divine embrace. I eagerly await the night the Goddess comes to me again, but until then I must continue to learn. Once I am ready, She shall reveal all to me.


The only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.
