Wherever you want.  

The Case Study of Kaiden Blake
Chapter 2: Wherever you want.

Whomever created the bones that hold me together told me I could go wherever I want.

Told me I could reach the stars, though I couldn't hear their voice.

Though the world has morphed that into a simple expression.

But I've decided today I want to travel to an island in the middle of the ocean. I want to own the island, but not with foreign contracts. I've bottled up all the energy around me, corked it inside and watched it thrash at the glass.

Surely these molecules amount to something. Surely these molecules are worthy of haggling. Matter in this world.

I want to shave off my hair, dye it grey -- for wisdom, of course -- and shatter every mirror in sight. Adding to the poor luck, subtracting those feelings that mirrors give you. Betraying those days in which you wake up to see that reflection in the mirror that sends you right back to bed. That reflection is two-faced, sometimes ordering your facial muscles to create an astrological smile. Sometimes that half-moon is worth it.

I want to run away to an island today, and don't you dare tell me I'm crazy.

I swear my creator told me I could go wherever I want, doesn't that sound crazy?

Are you willing to go where you want to be?

I'll sell the island and build us a treehouse. Deal?

Every time I see "crazy" in your stories I think "normal". Oh my silly life.

But I've decided today I want to travel to an island in the middle of the ocean. I want to own the island, but not with foreign contracts.
-I'm pretty sure you just explained my secret fantasy to the whole livejournal world. Haha.

I hope you keep your marvelous writing coming this quickly, I get so excited when I get "the tweet."

I am equally as excited to see your feedback.

P.S. Your icon looks much too edible. I may eat my computer screen.
but i will not mourn for you: [girl] fishbowlcofmanynames on October 3rd, 2009 02:57 am (UTC)
And then everyone who waits hopefully for them, and I who am pleasantly surprised by three of them when I don't check LJ for a while, would miss these entries because you'd chewed up your screen and couldn't see what you were typing. So on behalf of everyone who comments, or something, except perhaps for that kind of weird guy who keeps demanding answers as to what your species is, I recommend/ask that you control yourself. Maybe real life pancakes would help?

...I can't believe that I just did a whole comment without an ellipsis -- oh, there it is.

Gorgeous imagary there. I almost wish it didn't make as much sense as it does, or feel as real as when the memory was made.

Thank you. :)

Sometimes our most tender thoughts feel as if they should be foreign, but you can't shake off what comes to you instinctively. And that, in itself, is always a great thing.

"Whomever created the bones that hold me together told me I could go wherever I want."

That needs to be in a song! Right now. Something bout that line is just really, really neat. :D

This whole thing is mind blowing! Just every little thing you type it's like, "Ooh that belongs in a novel, ooh there's another one, ooh there's another one!" It's amazing that you're stuck on yourself, in mean with those talents; if you ever wrote a love letter the way you write the girl would be a moron to not get her heart melted. :D

I vote KB best internet writer and soon to be (hopefully) author! Those books need to hurry up. ;)
