Solitude ch 2"...and I was in so much trouble that I didn't tell her it was broken right away. My mother was so upset because it was one of the first vases she ever crafted on her own." Siyyu Sen was discussing one of her embarrassing moments with some of the other crew members. Her close friend, Jeuno Kali, among them.
Siyyu was a technician who was rather new to this ship. She had never been on a battle cruiser, it was a big leap from a frigate to say the least. There were so many people and other technicians that did their job much better than her, she knew the only reason she was on the ship was because of Jeuno's, the ships navigator, recommendation.
Jeuno and two of the other crew members were listening with interest, while a taller one with exotically shaped blond hair was lying back in the booth with her eyes closed. She was apparently an engineer of some sort Jeuno had befriended since being on the ship, and was easily the tallest Alarian on the ship since Siyyu barely came up to her shoul
Solitude ch 3It was a bit of a rocky start, but how often had first encounters been smooth throughout human history? Derrik was still a bit shaken by the whole ordeal, not sure what to take from it. She seemed very 'human', though the term, scientifically, was a bit bias. To him, it implied that what he witnessed from this intelligent creature was something that was not expected from anything but a human, and it did not sit well with him.
Her... race? Species? Her PEOPLE were easily as far along the evolutionary process as Homo Sapians, and they probably had their own word for 'humanity', a fact that rattled Derrik a bit, though he knew it shouldn't. He was a scientist, a person who did not hold biases, but lack of a suitable example left him with nothing more than the sense to get over such things. One thing was for certain, nothing he could say would offend her, because they had no way to properly communicate.
After Derrik had knelt there for a time, holding his face against the soft blue skin of
A Week Of KissesA Week Of Kisses
The first day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your shoulder,
Well before I thought about your lips.
Because I don’t know what I am doing, firstly,
But more importantly,
It’s because I know things can spiral quickly,
If things start shifting
After we lay down the concrete.
So I kiss the foundation,
Before we reach the soil.
The second day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your elbow,
Because it holds together the touch
And the flex.
To exhibit it,
I must kiss the joint that bends
And combines us together.
The third day I told you I loved you,
I lay my lips to your temples,
As I learned about the temple of reform,
For the Youth in North America.
Kissing you there signifying I will protect you,
As well as your temple,
As we re-form, into something more.
The fourth day I told you I loved you,
I’d kiss you softly on your forehead.
Because that’s what holds your brillian
Stranger LoveI am not the sunlit wing-print
splayed out on the bedroom wall.
I am not the dark mass forming
in a corner of an airless hall.
I am not the viscous vengeance
where you sink your spinning wheels.
I am not the leaky bucket
hung up on your wishing well.
You are not my soul mate missing
wandering a winter's night.
You are not the sound of angels
singing by a candle's light.
You are not the rasp of fingers
fumbling with a hasp of steel.
You are not the tattered towel
soaking up the things I feel.
I am the oblivious child,
dancing where the wildflowers are.
You are my unwitting captive
lighting up a jelly jar.
