The Woman On The RoadI was driving home late one night. It was foggy and cold from hours of rain and snow. My 1 year old daughter was sleeping in her car seat and my wife in the passenger seat. It was Christmas day and we were 50 miles into a 100 mile drive all the way home. The car was slightly warm and the windows were fogged up, the trunk full of presents received by both sides of the family. But this didn't seem like an ordinary Christmas night, something was off. Ever since we drove down this one intersection their have been no cars any where around.The Woman On The Road by XxSerialFirexX
'Hm. Weird,' I thought. Normally on Christmas Day you would expect cars everywhere. But not this night... Not this night..
Not long after thinking that, My daughter, Amiya, woke crying. It immediately woke my wife, Elizabeth. She looked at me and groaned. I took my eyes off the road for a second and smiled at her. She looked so tired and cute with her hair all tangled and twisted from sleep. Before I knew it I was looking longer than a second and my
PathI found it,Path by XxSerialFirexX
I found it even when I had lost hope,
I found it even when I knew it wouldn't end well.
Hope for it was gone,
Only the smallest speck was left,
Buried deep within the dark self and lost heart.
How you managed to make it grow,
From a bland seed to a wild and vibrant tree,
Will always be a mystery.
You feed me with slight words and images,
But the thought of finding it has kept me full,
And I know just maybe,
You'll let me starve.
You found it,
You found it when the odds were against you,
You found it even when it was forbidden.
I was enough to pull you back into it's world,
Enough to convince you that you still had it left in you,
And like gasoline to a fire I lit it up.
The sparks from that fire were real and beautiful,
But you are slowly diming them and drowning them,
You are slowly starving me.
You are joy-filled when I have anything to do with the matter,
The spirit is always thrilled and happy,
But is it?
We found it,
We found it together,
We dug it out and save
In The Air (Sneak Peak)There, the small speck of wonder then flew around. To his eyes it was only a small dust-ball simply floating around. When he went to swat it away from him the ball glowed. In fact it shined and grew larger, enough to fit in his hand. It stopped flying and then ever so gently sank down into the air above him. The glowing wonder fell softly on the wrinkly page he was reading. His presence seemed unable to move, frozen-like. Something about it made his eyes lock into contact with it. Uncertainty and somewhat fear and curiosity began to fill him, but of this he was unclear of. Emotions like that never really quite inhabited him before. Then the light slowly took form. A small, feminine body shaped on the paper. It moved and stretched out a tiny, soft arm and wiggled the fingers attached to it. His eyes widened and in his eyes the light shined. In his eyes the small speck was no longer that but something else...In The Air (Sneak Peak) by XxSerialFirexX
Mad WorldShe looked at the ground and the stone that rested above it. Her hands softly touched the wording that was engraved on the stone. Then she touched the ground. It may have been awhile since it was dug into, but to her it was only yesterday. Only a freshly dug grave where two freshly spirit-abandoned bodies lay, all in a freshly made casket. An unborn life and a man that helped her make it lay there. Her fingers touched a locket the hung loosely around her but was held tightly to her heart. A gift from the very man that resided in the ground with their offspring. When she opened the locket she read what was written inside.Mad World by XxSerialFirexX
"Surrender to what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be."
It was painful at first but now she is numb from it. And she won't let it go back to where they started; as strangers. Even though it was hard to forget someone you made so many memories with, she did not cry. There were no tears left. They were all sucked up into this mad world.
