Zutara: Dying To Survive 2
Dying To Survive
Chapter 2 - Prison of Silence
Facing your foe, even though he has changed, was never an easy task. Pride usually gets in the way.
A bird started to chirp on Zukos windowsill. He groaned and rolled over onto his back as the song chimed in his ears. Rubbing his eyes, Zuko sat up slowly. There wasnt anything he liked more than watching the sun rise. Standing next to the window, the sun cast its warm glow onto his face, and he smiled slightly. The yellow bird flew into the air suddenly and Zuko turned away. His eyes narrowed and he clenched his fists as the memory of the previous night weighed on his mind.
What am I going to say to her if I see her again? he asked himself quietly. Suddenly he jumped as a loud repetitive knock banged on the door to his room.
Weary traveler, its time to get up!
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,
Keep in Touch!
