HowlHe’s a dancer in the darkHowl by DeinoLilith
With unearthly rhythm
She’s the moon he left to sleep
In a sky without her stars
Like a poem led by lust
In a world of not to happen
Like a symphony of phoenix flights
On a December night
Singing for the ones they laid to rest
On their holy ground
Without an Earth
He’s the wolf
Howling with regrets
In a world of his own madness
She’s the moon
Without a sky to hold her high
In the night
Like the odds are not in favor
Like the sun that conquers
And the moon on someone else's sky
Like the legends we used to fear
Children by the fire’s flames
We used to be believers
In a world without its hope
Dream, boy, dream of wonder
In a world without sparkle
Like stormy days
In a September goodbye story
Of sleepless nights and awaken dreamers
Stars that pierce the sky
Are just children of regrets
Of a love that never happened
But always echoed in the night
Book Review The Comfort of Strangers,by Ian McEwanBook Review: The Comfort of Strangers, by Ian McEwanBook Review The Comfort of Strangers,by Ian McEwan by vampirekiki
Premise from Goodreads.com:As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked into their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though someone is waiting for them who cares deeply about how they appear. When they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell, they become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.
It's a haunting but intriguingly written book.
The Comfort of Strangers is probably the first book by Ian McEwan, aka 'Ian Macabre', which I have actually finished reading and enjoyed. I never finish The Cement Garden, by the same author,therefore I'm pleasantly surprised to find The Comfort of Strangers so appealing.
The story is very simple: a pair of well-to-do, fine looking, highly educated couple went to an unnamed, tourist-crowded city (strongly hinted at as Venice), they hanged out in their hotel, had many comfortable but not passionate sex, visited a few tou

Shadowplay Part 4
First they opened the windows in the living room, kitchen and a few other rooms on the ground floor in order to let fresh air into the house, and then they had to take time reconnecting the electricity and water supply, making sure those were in working order before sundown. They would try to reconnect the phone tomorrow—if they had the time to get around to it.
Once the two young men get the power up and water running, the rest of the day was mostly taken up by dragging the dusters off the furniture. They also did their best to sweep the floor of the living room, kitchen, bathroom and parts of the hallway, to make sure they would have a more tolerable living condition in the next one or so week.
By the time they got the ground floor done, the sun was already setting, but they still had yet to work their way to the second floor.

Shadow of a DoubtIn time, I grew used to the darkness. After lying awake for hours on end, night after night, it merely became another thing that I learned to live with.Shadow of a Doubt by Cosmic--Chaos
I have tried-- and failed-- several methods to put myself to sleep. Reading, watching dull late night shows, and cleaning did nothing to help my insomnia. I took sleeping pills at one point, but they always left me comatose, weak and sluggish, even when I cut the regular dosage in half. I wanted to sleep; I did not want to pass out.
One night, I got out of bed and began driving around my town until I lost interest and headed home. Eventually, I started frequenting the empty highways and back roads, trying to familiarize myself with the dark environment. The area was plain and unassuming during the day, but after the sun went down, it felt like another world.
At first, driving through the silent, empty darkness made me feel like I was a stranger who was not welcome, a trespasser who didn’t belong there. People with more active ima
