Warm, fuzzy nest
Sleeping, safe and timelessly
The whole world was the nest
And all was right with the world
But then the wind picked up
And the little sparrow tumbled
Tossed into the howling gale
All the way over the oceans
To fall into her prison of wishes
Locked up with her shadow
Lying to be happy

Are you scared? he whispered
No, of course not
Yes, how could I not be
Do you miss your home?
I don't remember much
I see it in my dreams
Why are you quiet?
I have nothing to say
It hurts me more to speak
And then the shadow asked
How will we escape?
So she spread her wings and flew
I sang the song with you
Faces to the sky
Voices spiraling to stars
Our story, lifted off the world
Breathed gently into the heavens
Enchanting those glowing suns
Not a happy tale, nor a sad one
A tapestry of truth
Not of love, not of tears
But one of life

And oh, how they shone!
Drinking in the light
And passing it on
The immortality began here
And will only end far, far away
With the rest of the shining blackness
A channel of golden threads
Pouring into eternal night

One voice grew weak
One voice faltered
Trying to live on
Yet was swept away and claimed
Even though you fell
I kept on singing
The story will not end
The stars will not dim
But now I'll sing twice as loud
The clock’s summited
Standing taut and rigid, guarding the seconds
The day’s fallen, lying dark and askew
Broken and defeated, life ebbing away
The stars smile sadly, waiting for the ascent
And the world is a cesspool of shadows
Breeding and feeding and maiming and dying

The cold whiteness numbs her nakedness
Soothing and whispering promises
She lays bare in her valiant coffin
Wishing and dreaming and flying
Bequeathing cobwebs to herself
Because no one else will take them

Needing proof of a soul,
She begins the hunt
Blade to skin and mind to metal
She must make her final stand count
Find the true you, they said
Now she’s dug more than they ever will
There are no tears, no regret
There’s no time for anything
Because she can finally control fate

Her sparks flow out
And she marvels at their beauty
Struck by crimson ecstasy
They leave their homes slowly
Saddened by the quiet
The soul leaves with a breath
Flitting uncertainly above dimming eyes
She tries to catch it, but she is broken
Yet it’s free now
And as the shade claims her light
She grasps the darkness, never to let go

They'll find her in the morning
And think what they will
It matters not
She beat thought in the end
It was a race to die, and she won
The sun shines once more, blazing with defiance
As she never will again
Because she stared at her Maker
Until He looked away
A Godless Boat
So this was a single word prompt from a friend (well, I asked her to give me a random word out of the blue, and she said "Bathtub". Didn't even explain what it was for till I was finished.) 
As always, feedback is much appreciated; but above all else, enjoy! Thanks.

A Tangible Shadow by Avix215
A Tangible Shadow
Photographs are truly the shadows of the past: not because of their pale projection of life, but because of the fleeting ghosts they leave in the mind.

Water turns me to dark white
Filth turns me to pale black
I slide over skin and follicle and hair
Wiping and gliding at the behest of cleanliness
Down from the heights, onto the body
Thrown into the wet hell
And then the dry one
Back to the cliffs to flutter sagaciously
Brushed disdainfully by a scornful breeze
How can you live so? he mocks
How can you bear watching me fly
Peeking into windows with deep dark secrets
From mountain to mountain and rainbow to rainbow
As you hang limp and used
A slave to your own purpose
Jump from that crest and join my freedom
Flit away and be gone

Ah, but you see, you are not free
You are bound to yourself and your dreams
I am bound to skin and damp
To a mistress who calls incessantly
A relationship of need and use
Your lands may be vast for your body
But mine are small for my heart
You may be the freest being
But also the loneliest soul
You may live everywhere in the world
But my liberty is one of cautious love
Towel
So a friend of mine recently challenged me to write a poem on any given topic, since I said I didn't mind. Just to spite me, she gave me 'Towel'.
Think I won.

Hey, I'm from Sunnyvale, Calfornia, and I'm a writer/poet.

I get flashes of inspiration, and so I just scribble them down. I don't take classes or anything, but I write all the same. I'm mainly into poems, short stories, and long stories/hopeful future books. I also do photography occasionally.


I'm a polyglot, and currently speak English, Hindi, Marathi, French, and Japanese. I'm an AJATTer (Google was invented for a reason), and have Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin in my long-term polyglot plans. I see language learning as a way to test my mettle, a source of fun, and a fascinating tool for connecting people and places around the world.

Oh, and I'm 16 and a high school senior.

Je parle un peu de francais aussi. J'espere que vouz aimez mes ouvrages!
少し日本語も話せますよ.良かったら僕のガラリを見てください、ありがとう!
Hope you enjoy my stuff!

Remember me? I certainly hope so.
So I've been off DA for a very long time, like a year. And by 'off' I mean actively off. I've still been coming on every few weeks/months to check on things. Haven't submitted anything or even favorited anything. But I swear I'm going to try to send in more things, one at a time, bit by bit. So yeah. (I have 4500+ DA messages to go through btw)

I'm very sad to announce that my frail brainchild, the Animorphs/DW Crossover that so many of you loved is being discontinued. Please save all your anger and tears for this deviation, which has a longer explanation/apology as well as previously unreleased material/ideas to pacify you guys. fav.me/d7c82k2

...No seriously, check that out.

And that's a wrap!
