A Whisper In A HurricaneFor my soul-sister, Dana. Hang in there. I love you.~ -:- ~1. She's out there sailing so alone tonightTossing left and rightAnd torn away from all she plannedI watch her from the safety of my shoreWishing all the moreThat I could pull her up to landUncharted waters crash like tearsHer sobs are thunder in my ears(Chorus)And I know there's nothing I can sayTo make the storm clouds go awayYour voice alone can calm this sea of rainThough I can't know what she's going throughPlease let me be a light for YouJust a whisper of hope in her hurricaneJust a whisper in the hurricane2. Her brokenness is all that she can seeA shipwrecked destinyA fog that hides Your arms so nearI'm stuck here like a lighthouse on a beachThere's so much I can't reachAll I can do is just be hereAnd I wish I could be in her steadIn these oceans I have never tread(Chorus)(Bridge)Even as she struggles not to drownYour hands are liftingAnd even as she cries out in the darkYour Son is
Music Drabbles 3Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist"Undone" - FFHPinako cradles the broken boy in her arms and firmly hushes away another night terror, rocking back and forth as he trembles and clings to her. She feels his hot, silent tears on her shoulder, but she doesn't say a word, for fear he will swallow them back and poison himself further with his own guilt."I'm so selfish, Grandma," he whispers. "Sometimes, I wish me 'n Al could switch places...and it's for all the wrong reasons." He speaks through gritted teeth, voice laced with self-loathing. "My brother would give anything to feel and dream, to sleep again. But sometimes, I..." His breath hitches. "Sometimes I'd give anything not to.""Not one more word, Ed," the old woman snaps, pressing him closer to her as grief overcomes her heart and she shuts her crinkled eyes tightly against her own tears. "No more of this," she murmurs to him in a gentler, pleading tone. "No more."Again, he cries himself to sleep in her embra
Music Drabbles 2Fandom: Narnia"Mirror" - BarlowGirlFor the umpteenth time that night, Susan reached into her purse for her compact mirror and peered into it with scrutinizing eyes, trying to fix what didn't need to be fixed. She wiped and dabbed and wiped again at her lipstick for several long seconds, and sighed in frustration. She just couldn't get it right.She felt Warren's eyes on her and turned to face him, an unexpected pang in her stomach. There was no condemnation in his gaze. Only disappointment. Which was almost worse."I wish you'd get rid of that thing," he said. "You really don't need it."Normally, with anyone else, she would've smiled apologetically and slipped it into her purse again to forget about it.But this was not normal, and he was not just anyone, and she suddenly decided to do something very childish and very wise. Still clutching the mirror in her hand, she turned and ran from the cafe to the nearby river; and with all her strength, she flung the mirror away.
Music Drabbles 1Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist"Unforgivable Sinner" - Lene MarlinSwallowing back grief, Al pushes open the door and sees the shadow of what once was his brother, sitting slumped on the floor in a sea of books and alchemic formulas and half-completed (half-hoped) human transmutation circles - maps charted to nowhere to find the missing piece of them that can no longer be found."Ed?" He calls his name softly, steps into the study and drops to his knees in front him, silently begging his big brother to look up, to come back him, to remember how to live."I never told her," says Edward, in a voice as empty as his eyes. "She waited, and waited, but I never told her and she...she never knew, and now she's gone and it's...too late to say it." A sudden, unexpected wave of pain crashes through the numbness and he chokes on tears that won't come. "She never knew I loved her.""Brother, it's alright." Alphonse blinks back his own tears and reaches out to squeeze Ed's s
