The TideThe Tide
Salty air clings to me,
Salty water carried by the sea,
Flows against me, hitting my feet,
It ebbs and flows, in the air so sweet,
This was the place where ideas meet,
In the soaked sand,
Footsteps were indented in the land,
There used to be two, but one set is missing,
Eaten by the sea, the waves are hissing,
And memories are fading, of our shy kissing.
I drop to the ground, the water licks my cuts,
I, such a silly, hated klutz.
It's been so long since someone cared,
Since anyone has asked how I fared,
So alone, I cry, scared.
My footsteps in the sand ease away,
Slowly, grain by grain, nothing will stay.
A little crab scuttles along,
Dancing to the seagull song,
And I stay, knowing I'm wrong.
The burning in my calves from salt of the sea,
Has caused welts to form, and my soul to flee,
It consumes my mind, but I push it aside,
I will remain on this beach; a forgotten bride,
I will wait; wait for the tide.
The sun had set, and the moon had rose,
The water on my skin had nearly
SasuSaku Week - JealousyIt was a nice, relaxing day in Konoha, if you didn't mind the heat, Konoha's summer seemed to be a torture for all the people, ninja or villager. Naruto dragged Sasuke to Tsunade to complain about the fact that they couldn't rest because they were on duty, waiting for a mission. Naruto stormed through the door and woke up a drunk Hokage.
"Naruto you baka! You have to knock! You can't just storm into my office!" screamed an angry Tsunade.
"Chill Baa-chan, you can continue sleeping when you allow us to rest, we want to be able to cool off, just waiting for a mission is boring." explained the yellow-haired annoyance. Tsunade sighed.
"And you swear that you will go away and won't disturb me again?" came Tsunade's question, she sounded like she didn't believe that Naruto wouldn't burst into her office like that again.
"Believe it! Come on Sasuke-teme, we gotta rescue Sakura-chan!" and with that, the door closed again and Tsunade's head dropped on her desk.
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
