Why did you do it?
You wanted friends for years.
Why did you ruin that?
You shouldn’t have shared your words.
Why did you ever think it was a good idea?
You have destroyed your most important frienships.
Why did you write that book?
You lost everyone who was important to you.
Why did you make that idiotic move?
“You idiot! How could you do that to me? How....”
I sobbed as I clutched my friend to my chest.
He gazed up at me, straight into my soul. A thin trail of blood dribbled from the corner of his mouth, and blood from his fatal wounds seeped around us in a crimson pool. He smiled faintly, gripping my arm.
“It was my time, Yu. Now go before it’s too late. Don’t waste your time here with me. I am already fading.”
More hot tears dripped down my face and onto his stained white jacket.
“Tadashi, no. You can’t leave me now. You said that family never abandons each other, so you can’t go!”
“Did you just call me family? Thank you, Yukio. Take care of yourself.”
His grip slowly loosed on my sleeve and his small body fell limp. His expression of peace and longing remained on his face.
“Tadashi! No. You can’t die. You promised you’d come with me to see a new future where all children can live in freedom. You’re family... my family...”
Footsteps began clattering down the halls, getting louder and louder. Unwilling to leave Tadashi, I simply sat beside him, staring in silence. However, when the first sentinel rounded the corner and sounded the alarm, I got to my feet with resolve. I would avenge all of my broken family, especially Tadashi. With that thought, bare feet slapping cold tile, I fled into the night.
Master of Disguise
You idiot, you thief of love, you tyrant.
How could I have viewed hell as some kind of oasis for so long?
Your devlish charm was mistaken for love and acceptance;
Your nonsense lies were sticky sweet, like cherry lip gloss.
I thought for so long that you were smarter than I,
More level-headed, more wise in the ways of this world.
The bodies scattered across the dirt floor seemed to bow before you.
Some of them even reminded me of myself.
I met someone with crystal eyes and rosy cheeks,
Hair like an ocean at sunrise.
I wanted to kiss them and they reached for me too,
Only to surround themselves in high rising flames.
Someone that lovely could not be an evildoer,
But you told me that the devil is a master of disguise.
We met in secret from then on,
Like some kind of Shakespeare play.
The day I found out was a tornado.
All at once, your lies crushed you.
How could I be so blind?
The fire around us was your doing.
My darling dragged me into the sunlight,
I had forgotten what it felt like to feel true happiness.
They took my hand and kissed me as you burnt yourself to ashes.
Zombie survival 101
There is a loud bang in the shed. Monica and Mel make there way outside to investigate. When they look through the windows in the door, the man's bloodshot eyes are peering back.
Mel let's out a scream while Monica clutches her chest.
”YOU IDIOT I thought you said you killed him!” Monica is used to Mel fucking up.
Mel looks as surprised as she does. ”How do we explain to mom we are harboring a man we thought you ran over now he's alive?”
”I heard his bones crack under the pressure of the ti-” the man is moaning but not speaking.
Mel's eyes grow wider ”I made him brain dead” she panics Monica is in hysterics her hands shaking next to her linky body.
”Okay, we explain it was an accident he shouldn't be mad right? MEL!!” Mel is taken over by fear.
Monica pulls herself together, and she opens the shed door. To explain to the stranger what happened. The man throws himself atop of her his mouth wide open like he wants to take a chunk out of her face.
Mel takes an axe and lands his back. His body is still ontop of Monica who is now covered in blood and drool. He is still trying to chew her face off.
”YOU IDIOT HIS HEAD!” she lands another blow to the back of his head exposing his brain.
”Its harder than it looks YOU IDIOT!”
A friend in need
To say i was livid would be sugar coating it. It was 3:00am and i was doing 60mph on a 50 road. Honestly i didnt care about whatever charges i would likely incur from this, my only worry was getting my friend - who was currently vomiting into a bin i had so graciously provided - to the hospital. Why are we heading there you must ask? Well let me enlighten you.
Earlier that morning.... lets say around 2:30am i was sleeping when my phone started going haywire with insistant buzzing. The screen lighting up like the 4th of July. Through hazey eyes i read the name at the top: Serra. Serra is one of my only friends in the world that i consider family. Without hesitation i answered.
"Hello" i mumbled
"Chris....Oh thank god, you gotta come quick!"
Instantly my body was on high alert
"Darren? Why do you have Serra's phone? Whats wrong?"
"We dont have time just get here quick!"
"Where are you and for god sake tell me what the hell is going on!"
"We're at Vinnie's...... It's not good, I.....I did'nt think this would happen oh god"
"God dammit Darren, i'm on my way.... keep on the phone and explain what happened. Where is Serra!"
I could hear shuffleing in the background followed by vomiting.
"We were at the party and she was very tense.... i just wanted her to loosen up a bit.... i did'nt think, oh god i swear i did'nt know this would happen"
My blood ran cold through my veins, it was as if the world had turned to absolute zero.
"WHAT DID YOU DO!" i roared
"I gave her some pills i got from vinnie. I have no clue as to what they are! " he sobbed
Silence. In that moment i could honestly say i was about to commit murder. How DARE he drug her. She.... no, i trusted him with her. A stupid decision on my part and one that i was going to make him regret.
"Darren let me make this very clear.... i am pulling into the driveway now. Bring her outside, give her to me and run. If i see you within a hundred yards of Serra after this i will kill you. Not only do i know how to make your death seem like a natural one, i also know how to make somebody suddenly dissapear. Do you understand Darren. I am angry, truly angry. It takes a lot to make me lose my temper but by god you've done it"
That takes us to where we are now. Well almost - we made it to the hospital and she was wheeled away. I was the one left to phone her parents and tell them that there daughter had suffered an OD because thats what happened. She had overdosed on those god damn pills and not one of them had the balls to call an ambulance. So here i am, sitting in the waiting room with her sobbing parents - all the while only too words run rampant through my brain.
Masking your hate with lies about your love.
Claiming from below that your goals are from above.
You unbelievable idiot.
Your hate and your intolerance claimed to be justified.
My own position somehow vilified.
I'm the one preaching tolerance.
I'm the one talking about a future for all.
I'm the villain, I'm the intolerance in your world.
You're the future.
You liar. You charlatan. You idiot.
