Past ashThe clouds were rolling in as the second hand ticked away the timebringing the hands of the clock closer and closer to the witching hour.
I sat in my armchair, watching my pocketwatch which was currently resting snug in my palm, the gears busily working and spinning, burning away the time. The gold along the edges glinted, reflecting the light of the nearby fire I had going.
I just wanted midnight to come and go. Another day wasted. Another dreamless night. I couldn't bear to let myself sleep, for I knew what my mind would conjure up for me.
The hands finally touched midnight, and I snapped the pocket watch shut. The noise echoed in the silence of my room, louder than the crackling of the fire. At this time, I would usually force myself to get up, and sleepusually when I waited long enough I never dreamtbut I felt no reason to move from the armchair. My eyes simply drifted to the firethe flames catching and eating away at my thoughts. The fire, too, was burring
LithiumA single trickling rain drop
Like gossamer silk strands
Gliding along my third eye
Whispers wind's secret caress
I exhale. Lungs releasing-
Pressing translucent memories;
Fragment of a fragment
As water kisses rose petal,
Drifting down stream's curtain
Pretty little curtain.
Where the wizard lies.
He smiles up at me
With his monocled brow-
Sipping on warm tea
And fingers quacking casually
To the rhythm of his notes
This is a safe-zone. Free-zone.
Innocent eyes sparkle,
Imploring it to be true. I breathe.
Keep in Touch!
