Whatever had hit this facility, had hit it hard, and getting the lights back on was key to her ability to fully explore it. The nearby metal wall and […]

A Titan Haiku

A strong female blue, Polished steel gleaming, a wall. Action, no regret. Born of bone and dust. The experience through pain. Bloodied, life repeats. The light inside burns, Air crackles, silence engulfs. Pounding resides, death. The fire crackles bright. Another sun sets anew. Tomorrow begins. Great walls decaying. History silently screams. I enter the maw. […]

Rage, Beyond the Dark Mirror: III

Why do you create this thing of me, This horrid hate I rage of is your doing, I do not wish to be! Not to create with this vernal tongue, Nor annihilate, nor expunge, nor eviscerate, No! I wish to be destroyed, to sublimate back Into the maw of this origin: To be no longer, not […]

Did my chaos feed your singularity, Nurturing on my pandemonium? Do you draw from me, Even as you bleed into my depths? What strange force […]
