Keep Holding On
Tears welled up in amethyst eyes as the teen's fist hit the wall. He didn't know what to do. He didn't know if there was anything to do. His other half was gone. Yugi had been ripped from his very heart, and all because he was too blinded by rage to see what he had done. The darkness that had always been in his heart had won, letting Rafael get the best of him and letting someone else pay the price.
The Pharaoh let the name of his light, his partner, his very reason to keep walking, slip past his lips. If this were any normal day, he would have confided in his Aibou, telling him everything that was troubling him. Then Yugi would smile up at him with those big, innocent eyes and gently tell him that it would all be alright. In an instant, anything that bothered the spirit, anything and everything would leave his mind and all that would be left was him and his Yugi.
The Pharaoh leaned against the wall, his breathing heavy. He knew how much of a blow Yugi's disappearance was for
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
