    Huntress Pauses.

    Usually Huntress appears in the poems hunting those wolves...The large slobbering, cunning wolves whose muscles ripple and who kill as sure as looking at you little insignificant sheep...Today she is in a brief story that must be told as preparation...Warriors who know her will...

    Overcast With Tears

    It is overcast here today. The sky is a vibrant blue and the fluffy white clouds scurry across the sky looking for some fun. The skies are grey. No sun caresses my skin or touches my hair or warms my chill. I feel such a loss. The numbness is not as bad, but it remains in this...

    There it is again, The lump in my throat.

    Will it begin? Or shall it start to coat, My esophagus, My intestines, Like a fungus, Like an infection. Dripping down my insides. My digestion, Of a hardship- a pound Of pure isolation. What did I consume, Or it me? A lifetime of doom? A lifetime of me?
