Blank mind, rid my memories,
take all that I've known and learned.
Fully filled and fully drained,
for I am truly burned.
Mental pain and mental ease,
are going head to head,
Being only strengthened,
by the comfort of my bed.
Lay me down in silk,
lay me down in suede.
Cover me in linen,
from my head until my feet.
Release me of my efforts,
release me of my stress.
Take me past the horizon,
don't want anything less.
he ran towards the finish ahead.
No turning back, always forward,
he ran himself literally mad.
knowing he would get there soon,
for the finish was so very clear.
And while it always seemed close,
it never seemed to get near.
He always got closer and closer,
perpetually chasing the finish.
But closest to the destination,
it would just slowly diminish.
Then reappear slightly further,
so he kept on going ahead.
He kept perpetually running,
until he dropped finally dead.
The Velvet Drapes
allowing one to see the world, and take view of the scapes.
To make the room fill fully up, with precious, liquid light,
to set the world in motion, such are the velvet drapes.
Separated, that they are, to witness all life's beauty,
until they reunite again, as would be their duty.
But the loop is not perpetual, for everything ends,
one can ponder, one can fear, one day they will not open.
That time is when the endless night, shall quietly commence,
when the drapes are shut and the window will be broken.
They will shut for all of us, to that there is no escape,
only to catch a glimpse of light, such are the velvet drapes.
The Pointless Journey of the Simple Minded
As the sky started to darken, it was suggested that they'd set up their camp on what seemed like a rather suitable spot. In reality, this spot wasn't any different from anything in a radius of what had to be at least a 100 miles, but everyone was tired from all the walking. Cristina started complaining about how Margaret had eaten too much of their food, while everyone else was rolling out their beds. She then told Margaret to fix up her bed as well, in order to make up for her inaptness of contributing in any other way. After these orders were accepted and executed to the best of Margaret's abilities, Cristina still managed to complain, to which Sanderup jokingly responded: 'If you don't like your bed, you can always stay in mine, sweety.' This wasn't as funny to Cristina as it was to Sanderup, who got his ass verbally handed to him in the moment following. Luckily for him Cristina was interrupted by Jejo, who had just finished cooking what seemed like a lot of groceries mixed together into a brown stew. Next to him stood Doyle, who stated with a grasping voice: 'Looks like it will be only 2 or 3 more days until we're entirely out of food, so you better enjoy it.' This was barely a surprise for anyone in the group and the update was received in mutual silence. Even Cristina's ever-yapping mouth had come to shut, realizing how very small their chances of surviving were.
It didn't take long to fall asleep, as the journey had thoroughly tired everyone's body. However, as silent as it were, there was sound to be heard from Cristina's bed that night. Margaret who slept close enough to Cristina to hear was awoken by the muffled sounds coming from her neighbor's sack. She slowly opened one eye to see what was going on, which she immediately regretted. Not much more than 5 feet away from her she saw a big manly silhouette that could be no-one, but Doyle's. Cristina's pushing a turning made it very clear that Doyle had invited himself that night. “It will only hurt more if you struggle, but it's up to you.” He whispered in Cristina's ear, while he pushed a knife against her throat with one hand and unbuttoned her blouse with the other. Margaret had seen enough. Silent as she could be, she turned around and closed her eyes.
Cristina was no-where to be found that morning. After some brief searching they all just assumed Cristina had taken off on her own and it wouldn't have much use to spend any more time on her. They were lucky enough she didn't steal their food anyway. Sanderup was rather disappointed by this, as Cristina was one of the very few things around here that was worth looking at, but decided to march on anyway. They had another day of walking to do. He did not know what the next day would bring, nor did he want to. He knew all that mattered right there and then was to keep walking. This time they were only with four, but Sanderup figured there was little purpose in focusing on what had been and decided it was more purposeful to think about what's ahead. “Whatever crosses my path, I shall conquer.”, he said to himself while he took another step in the vast desert.
And now he was here, in this place. He wasn't able to talk to Butter, who was too far away. Not that he was in a talking mood anyway, as he was feeling pretty down about the whole abduction thing. He was just sitting there, looking around him and considered trying to get some sleep. All the others in the box seemed to have done the same, but Egg could hardly close an eye with this uncertain faith floating above his head. After what seemed like hours of sleepless pondering, the lights in the cell turned on and the giant prison-door was starting to open. A familiar hand put a dead fish, wrapped in see-through plastic, right next to the box Egg was sitting in. 'What kind of fucked up joke is this?', Egg mumbled before the door closed once again. 'Maybe he's still alive, ask him a question.' The egg next to him was woken up by the bright light and heard Egg's mumbling. Egg knew him well, as he was one of the few eggs that were close to him in the box. Even though this had to be the nicest of all eggs, this was very much compensated by his lack of intelligence. Egg frowned at him in the hopes to make his neighbor aware of his stupid question. The egghead looked back confused and a few seconds later it turned towards the obviously dead fish and started screaming 'Hey fish! Fishyfishyfish! Are you alive!? FIIIISH!'.
Unsurprisingly there was very little response. By now the screaming had drawn everyone in the fridge's attention. An almost empty bottle of Heinz ketchup shouted angrily: 'Could you shut up!? Screaming isn't gonna resurrect that damn mackerel, so if you could just lower your volume it would be very much appreciated. Besides, it's not gonna be long before you'll be just as dead as him.' This statement didn't please Egg in the slightest. He felt his yolk sinking to his bottom and had to catch some breath before he was able to respond to his predicted doom. After trying to find the right words for a moment, all he eventually managed to spurt out was: 'How do you mean, dead?' After about 15 seconds of dramatic silence, the bottle of slaughtered tomatoes responded: 'I've been here for quite a while, but the same cannot be said for you dairy products. Especially little eggs like you aren't gonna last very long around here. I've seen the likes of you get taken by groups and never returning again.' It was then that Egg praised the lord that he wasn't cursed with genitalia, because he was pretty certain that if he were, he'd definitely wouldn't have been able to keep the box dry. 'You'd be one of the luckier ones though, I've heard you yolk folks get a pretty swift death out there. Your buddy Butter of there, whom I saw you entering here with, probably won't be as lucky. Chances are he'll get cut up, piece by piece, over the next couple of days. Most of 'em last about one or two weeks, but at least they'll be dead within the first few days. In the end, it's going to be tough for all of us, I can tell you that much. Me, I've been emptied bit by bit, I'm guessing it won't be long before I get to meet the good lord either. Every so often I'm taken out of here and so they can spray my innards over others. Whoever is doing this to us is a fucking maniac, I can tell you that much.' Egg didn't know what to say after that, so he decided it might be better not to say anything at all. Instead he'd rather silently feel bad for himself, he decided. It took quite a lot of self-pity for Egg to finally fall asleep.
The next morning (at least that's what he assumed, there wasn't really a clock anywhere), Egg was awoken by the giant door that got opened again. This time the hand wasn't there to add more residents however, this time it came to take. The hand opened the box and as if it were destined to be, both Egg and his neighbor were taken from it and were transported from the cold cell to what seemed like a much larger prison, only this one had windows. 'Oh boy, here we go.' Egg regretted that he most likely had to spend his last moments with a grade A moron. He tried to look at the face of his capturer, but wasn't able to do so as a big camera was right in front of it. The lens was very clearly pointed at him. Egg started looking around. He was placed on a stone cold, flat surface. Not much farther from him he saw what looked like a giant, silver snake, only instead of a head it had a flat, round end where a few drops of water fell from. When Egg looked back at the guy with the camera in front of his face, he saw that the man had also taken the dead fish with him. 'What the fuck are you planning to do, you sick fuck!?', Egg screamed at the man, who either didn't hear him or just decided to ignore Egg, as there was no reply.
He then proceeded to grab Egg's near-retarded neighbor and before he could even let out another 'Oh boy', he had already been smashed to death against the face of the fish. Egg looked in horror at what had just happened before him. He saw the hand come closer. From there on it was all black for Egg.
About two hours later, the man was done editing his video and was all ready to upload it to his popular YouTube-channel HowToBasic. 'This is going to be another classic.', he chuckled while he was typing in the words 'How To Impregnate a Fish' and hit upload.
