Here We Go Again... Chapter 1I awoke to the scent of fallen leaves and the cinnamon candle I left burning in my room the night before. It wasn't the smartest thing, I know, to leave a candle burning while I slept, but I fell asleep before I remembered it was even burning in my defense. I sat up in my pink bed and rubbed the grogginess form my eyes. While doing my morning arm stretching, I looked at my clock. 8:36. Why do I always wake up so early? I asked myself. In my (right) opinion, 8:36 is much too early for waking up during the summer. Well, at least I had more time in the day to spend doing activities with my sisters and my friends. I finally got up out of bed and walked downstairs to the kitchen. Surprise, surprise; the Professor was already up. I could hear the clanking of test tubes and such from down in his lab.
I opened our cupboard and looked for some decent cereal to eat.
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
