CRASH! The sound filled the woods as a piece of wood flew through the air. Kota looked down at the pitiful mess. "Try it again", he commanded.
Skye jumped, she hadn't seen him there. "I can't", she whimpered. She had been trying all day.
Kota jumped down from his perch, and stared her straight in the eye. His eyes lacking all of their familiar warmth filled her soul with dread. She had failed him. She waited for the fallout. "Don't you ever say that again", his playful voice had gone cold.
Tears came to Skye's face. Who was she kidding; she would never be like Kota. He was brave, and cunning, and strong. Kota walked over to Skye and lifted up her chin. "It takes time. Concentrate. Let the magic fill your soul." He kneeled down next to her to look her in the eyes. "Close your eyes. Open your mind. Feel the woods around us. Concentrate on the piece of wood."
Skye nodded and closed her ryes. She tried to tap into this magic Kota kept saying she has, and opened her mind like he had taught
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
