Come Here, Gluttony, DearAs I yawn crumbs fall down my chest.
Stroking my already disgusting shirt,
Grease from my hands are transferred.
Still mucky, I move onto my pants,
Realizing they're stained already.
I reach out again,
Tongue caressing my lips.
They taste like what I crave.
I move slowly,
Oh, so slowly!
Finally the goods reach my lips.
I reach out again.
It seems my love has burdened me,
Causing me to not move so fast.
And torturing me.
Please, just a few more bites.
Next To Die pt. 3I was high in the sky when I could see again. Looking down, I saw Kyle hugging my lifeless body, his head entangled in my white hair. A remembered what he said, how he used to keep me warm. He was right. When I first came to the elemental institute, I was scared and cold almost every night, and he would hold me, as I feel asleep. At the cabin, lying in a sleeping bag next to William, he kept me warm. Then, I was shocked back to the present, watching Kyle stab himself, and then his life passed too. When the green eyes lost their life, I cried again. But my sorrow was short lived; eventually my mind was thrown back, into the past, back to the first day.
Back in the cabin, I saw Kyle, holding my hand. I was staring dreamingly at William at that moment, while Kyle was doing the talking. Time skipped to that night, where I slept on the second floor. My body was curled up, and I was sound asleep. Kyle, on the other hand, was staring up at me, sorrow in his eyes. More flashes, and I saw Willi
Next To Die pt. 2The days followed in a routine matter. Every morning a girl named Becky would serve breakfast for all 12 of us, and then William would announce that day's mission. Eventually I learned that Silvia had seen me as one of the four leaders, and then I was destined to be with them or at least so she said.
"Alright, today we're going out on a hunting mission," explained William, on the 7th day I was there. "We'll be hunting a group of rogues, 15 total. So get equipped and head out."
I was excited for this mission we had been doing surveillance up until now. We got out the door quickly, and the air leader, Daniel, was telling me a pointless story. Out in the open air, I found William and went up to him, smiling. We chatted for a bit, mainly about today's mission, before he went off to start leading everyone. Looking after him, I suddenly felt a tap on my shoulder. Turning around, sad emerald eyes filled my vision. A tender hand brushed back my white hair. "Hey," he said solemnly
Next To Die pt. 1I ran fast, and I ran hard. We were still so close to where we escaped, yet so far from where we needed to be. Eventually, we stopped running, and I looked up to him. Green eyes met my blue ones. "We can't jump over this trench," I told him, panic covering my voice. Looking back down, I remembered again why we had to stop. The cabin was only reachable by the other side of this cannon, a 300-foot drop, 20 feet across, and no matter how strong or fast we were, it was unlikely we could make it. I brushed my long white hair out of my eyes, exhausted from how far we had run. Kyle, the boy I was with, thought about it for a few moments.
"Back there," he said, running behind me, "there's a small drop back here, a hill almost, we can go down there." My step fell easily into his, and only a minute later, I saw what he was talking about. It was a rocky and steep decline, but much better than our other option.
"Lets go then!" I shouted, surely we didn't have much time.
Bruised and beat
Last WishClamping down on my fears
I hide in darkness
Holding on tight to what I know.
Or at least,
What I thought I knew.
Is this a lie?
What I've learned?
Hugging myself tighter,
I believe that I can close the hole
The hole that lets in despair.
Are you a doctor?
Can you sew?
Stitch me up
So the fears will be locked
Locked away deep in my heart.
Like I am now.
Please save me,
I beg of you.
I'm lost in this everlasting doom.
Being ripped to pieces,
My last wish is to be freed
Of the continuous misery.
