Stranger in the Rain at Midnight

Glancing up from her paperwork, Books gazes out of her balcony doors, noting how hard it is raining out. Odd, it had been snowing yesterday. She sets the paperwork aside and crawls out of bed, grabbing her shawl.

She then notices a figure on her balcony and suddenly feels her heart jump into her throat. She then tries to calm her fluttering heart. Maybe it is just an animal.
Books swiftly opens one of the balcony doors, seeing then it is a more human-like figure.

"Or not.."

"Reckless creatures always one another find
Stealing features, each a diamond to be mined. 
There are facets to stake, And crooks in our neck,
we’re like moths to a flame, Get ready and set
Now tarry no longer, let’s burn one another
We’re one and we’re twain, now
Let’s play a game”

So I have this new obsession, The Dog and Her Reflection from The Devils Carnival.  In the movie 3 people start off dead and go to hell.  They have all done something wrong (unconnected from each other) and are going to be punished if they take the bait. Our Dog here, is a Clepto and she has been caught. She wakes beside a pile of jewels with a sign that says “take only what you need” and of course she takes it all. When she walks into the carnival she reads the pamphlet that says they have a huge diamond that can be won.  here in her greed she is willing to bet her soul to get the diamond. "Lord Lord that greed it will kill you, lord lord go on pass the hat will ya, your purse strings are tight bleed for a sinner I just need a few pennies more" 

You can find her song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSSdsKWJ7wE

Happy Belated 51st Birthday to the most beautiful man in the world, John Christopher Depp II, also known as Johnny Depp. You’re the reason why I’m still here. You allow me to believe in myself, and stay strong when I’m down. ‘Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.' - a quote I'll always take in mind and think about. Thank you for being who you are Johnny. - deppication[.tumblr].com

You know what I think? I think that we’re all in our private traps, clamped in them, and none of us can ever get out. We scratch and we claw, but only at the air, only at each other, and for all of it, we never budge an inch.
