be on the lookout for writings and possibly some pictures, if I get lucky enough to take any.
If any of you have suggestions, prompts, commissions (for free!), or what have you, I would love to see them.
Circlesthere’s no need for hope in an endlessly calculated world of projected outcomes and probabilities, he claims. hope is a useless tool for those stuck eternally in a loop of self-fulfilling demise; a way out of the rat trap.Circles by ~CianTheBard
but who is he to comment on the one who goes in circles? just because his circles are a bit bigger doesn’t mean keeping his ties on a cycle and his appearances up sixteen hours a day makes him any better.
woe be to the one who doesn’t know hope; as a vehicle of change for the downtrodden and an aspiration to the evil. those with pasts long forgotten by the general public look to the few who know, who see what the cruel world is capable of and stand straight in its face, daring it to make a move.
and soon enough, his world will collide with theirs, of drinks in the dark until the bar closes, of nights awake wondering just what this life was made for. the drone , the cog in the machine now screams internally when he realizes he’s greased with th

Its preset presence and morals upon me
“break rules break heads for love” it roared
Never once did it say
Smoking is bad for your health
Then maybe all of those cigarettes would
Have been in that small brown plastic bag back when
I could pretend I knew what I was doing
Hell in the form of santa ana winds
Came to me to tell me I was fired
Long before being hired
You see we’re all time travelers
At the rate of
One second per second
But there is no one to tell you
Just which direction
See my blue box got impounded
And my companion left me for another man
Because she never told me
Smoking is bad for your health
vacation fundvacation fundvacation fund by ~CianTheBard
he wondered once if that old bottle would actually be enough. he called it a “vacation fund" for the end of this small little adventure, except even he didn’t know when it ended.
he brought along no sword, no axe. this was a silent trudging, you see. no pride here, no hope. just that continued slouch into the darkness ahead, torch still lit more for safety than anything. he knew the monsters already, knew when and where they would come.
and so he treks on, that small bottle slowly filling with loose change and loose dreams, the cavelike walls of the silent city surrounding him, nerve impulses flying overhead on the municipal power lines. the maze has him caught, or so he begins to believe. he begs for a quiet alignment, the medicine he keeps swallowing supposedly attempting to give him a skeleton key.
it seems more like the waking dreams are the answer, the days at the beach and sitting along others with empathy, observing and occasionally particiapting.
Seeking a Joke for the End of the WorldArtificial lights mask permanent darkness, worry lines permeate the sky; our blindness has made us lose our yellow brick road. The rabbit hole is closed for repairs, and the population is stuck with the silent reality of our ignorance, our naivete toward the slowly emerging maw of complete loneliness.Seeking a Joke for the End of the World by ~CianTheBard
There is hope in humor, however; the darkest of hearts have been purified by a passing joke, an act of unselfish love on another's part.
Breaking HabitsThe deep dark of spaceBreaking Habits by ~Ren-Takada
Has nothing on the light
Yet it has consumed me,
Caused me to be lost and blind.
I can't find salvation
Prefer my devastation
And yet I find a way,
A way to beat it all.
It's when I'm here,
When I go out with friends.
I make my own decisions,
Decide my own fate
And let naught stop my path.
Tending to my own rose garden
My life is my own design
I know nothing but
In nothing I can create everything.
To become a writer,
To become an artist,
To be proud of myself,
To believe I can prevail.
To be or not be
Tis the question.
I shall and will be
Is the answer.
