Escape Scene continuation
1. From my vantage point high above the courtyard, I surveyed the scene with a critical eye. The castle itself was built into sloping mountain, carved out of the living rock, and constructed in tiers. The lowest tier was also the largest, the market and the commons, filled with bustling commerce. The second tier was a grand reception area for visiting nobility or honored guests. A ramp from the market would lead the approaching party up to the second level. After that, the higher levels could only be reached by entering the castle proper and following the wide, winding hallways. The third tier was the large open courtyard; a semicircular plane with a low wall at the open edge. The wall was low so as not to interrupt the view on pleasant occasions, and to discourage an escape on…less…pleasant ones, for the drop to the reception area was sheer and far, and nothing but cold stone waited to greet anyone who fell.
Today was one of those unpleasant occasions. The young man in the c

Maybe I'm Okay
I stood in line; hands folded politely, eyes cast down.  Not really out of respect, as they should have been but more to avoid betraying my growing frustration at all this.  I should be devastated, I know.  Honestly, something like this should have me curled up in a corner somewhere, either wailing hysterically or staring at the wall like a vegetable.  Instead, I really just can’t wait to get out of this place.  The smell of it, the heat, and all these people, crammed shoulder to shoulder, some in tears, others just downtrodden.  It’s clawing at my nerves.  I can’t leave yet, of course, though my patience only shortens with the line.  I have to at least pay my respects, see his face one last time.
Dear god, it hits me with the full weight of realization.  His face…I’ll have to see his face.  My ire is gone.  Very suddenly I find myself becoming tense, v

Answer to the Human Condition
You think and so you suffer;
Do you suffer because you think?
Without feeling you could not suffer;
The reverse is also true;
You suffer to feel;
Pain can accompany pleasure;
Heartache may accompany happiness;
Just as water teaches thirst;
Such is life;
But life is more than such;
Life is more than fleeting;
Life is more than pain and pleasure and heartache and happiness;
Life is more than a discordant, resonant, cacophonous, symphony;
Emotion signifies a soul;
Your emotion to me signifies the existence of more;
The soul makes us all human;
But you have seen the soul and what it holds;
And thus you transcend the human condition.

Visit Down
One day, a couple weeks ago…mighta been a month or so, but not more than that, I was just hangin out in my room.  I was reading a book, listening to music on my computer, and also carrying on some half-hearted IM conversations.  So, I was just relaxing and all when my cell phone rang.  It came up as "Number Unknown," so I didn't answer, cause I hate telemarketers.  I waited to see if they left a message…they did.
I called my voicemail, and put in my pin…then I pressed pound.  I listened to a 20 minute recording that basically amounts to "press 1 to hear your message."  I pressed one.  Then I listened to fifteen more minutes of crap about when the message was left…the date, time, weather conditions, alignment of the planets, my horoscope, etc.  Then it finally got to the message.  My eyebrows raised a little.  It was Satan.  I really didn't expect to hear from him that day.

Hm...
His waist was twisted at an awkward angle, and the sand beneath his towel was damp, the moisture starting to seep up through the cloth and his jeans.  His elbow ached from being locked up for so long, supporting him, and trembled occasionally, as if threatening to give out and drop him in the sand at any moment.  For all his discomfort, he refused to move.  Instead he let his head fall forward, resting on the shoulder of the body that in turn rested with its back against his chest.
His love smelled the same, just as he always did; his own musky scent with a hint of whatever deodorant he used.  For whatever reason, that smell always relaxed him, bringing calm into an otherwise worried mind.  He wrapped his free arm around his love's stomach, and his love in turn began running his fingers over his arm.  Neither said anything for a long while, content to enjoy each other's company and watch the sun begin to fall beyond the horizo

Damn right they are! Sorry for the (exTREMEly) belated response, I pretty much gave up on dA. Been writing again though, so everyone can look forward to some angsty, self-satisfied prose in the future
