The Broken Toy
He was broken toy, not much for the world.
And walking high as though he were a king, even the light bent around him, and the sun hid for him. He knew his beauty, fantasized his worth, and walked, and walked, leaving trails of pain in his wake.
Even angels wreak havoc, and he was angelic. And where he tread green blossomed, and people threw themselves at his feet. They fought to worship and offered blood, but he could only nod in assent. Nod because his tongue had been tied years before, when the worship had began.
To fly like he flew, you must shed the weight of empathy. In cars and planes and over plains in trains, the man moved with stealth and without a sound. Though he traveled in adoration, that worship spawned no religion and held no faith, and was an empty belief. The people who fawned over the man did not know how empty their devotion was, and they did not mean it that way, but all the same they had nothing to show for their sacrifice.
And then there was a woman. She was neith
Amazing that he could breathe through all the layers of himself so steeply piled on top of him until he looks like a small beetle wrapped up in a tiny ball.

She was struck by the odd color and fragrance she found drifting from the open bottle at her right, and for the life of her she couldn't figure out why she hadn't noticed before. It was the sickly sweet aroma of jasmine and coconut, and quite frankly it was a blend that made her feel somewhat nauseous, not to mention slightly toothachy. Why has she bought this shampoo if the smell repulsed her so? As a matter of fact, now that she came to think about it, had she bough this shampoo? She couldn't remember doing so- when it came down to that, she couldn't actually remember opening the bottle or lathering the stuff all over her head, either. It wasn't like her to be so forgetful. No, wait. Was it? Was she a forgetful person?
