Seems Like Forever
By Revenge

 


A once high and mighty city, now sat dismantled and broken. Its tall buildings now lay as glass shards on the cracked streets. The cars that were once parked so neatly along those cracked streets were now thrown around, and wrecked. All metal seemed to be rusted of age, this did not just happen over night, this damage happened sometime ago. The wind blew through the dismantled city, searching for a form of life, at least one breathing critter. It went on through 10 streets until it finally, hit the back of a young man. He continued to walk quietly, shivering slightly. He looked at the floor as he walked. His dark brown eyes tracing the outline of broken glass shards, defining there shapes. He looked up to where they would be, imagining the building were there, like the time when everything was still good. He shook his head and frowned, it seems like forever...he thought to himself. He looked back at the shards,

staring at his reflection.

Within each shard was not him, but other beasts that followed his every move like a reflection. He stopped and stared at them, they stared back. One of the beasts looked almost mechanical, and was as rusted as the metal in the city. The beast next to him, was black and almost looked furry, its bright red eyes the only color within that beast. The next was what looked like a large and tall human being, its features were barely visible because of the blood that drenched it completely. It looked like a chocolate covered apple, only this was a human covered in blood. This human had blue eyes, that were not dark like an ocean. It's eyes were a bright blue, just as bright as the sky, this beast used to be beautiful. The young man stared at them dully, unsure if he was just plainly insane or this was really happening. He kicked one of the shards roughly, the shard flinging off with the black, furry beast. The young man laughed to himself. He looked at the mechanical looking one, then kicked it off roughly then let out another roar of laughter that filled the city. He looked at the human shard but pursed his lips when he only saw his own reflection. He'd walked down this city thousands of times, in search for people, many times had he looked into these shards at himself, but not until now had he really seen himself.

He saw a pale young man, dark brown hair plastered along his face. Bangs covering most of his forehead and eyes. He knew what he looked like of course, but that wasn't what he saw. He didn't see what he looked like, he saw himself. He who he was, who he is. He saw a pathetic creature who had never appreciated his living here. He saw a depressed thing, that searched for humans for company when before this happened, all he wanted was to be alone. He saw somebody who was being punished for never appreciating those he'd pushed aside, those who wanted to help him.

No one had died on this horrid incident, it was merely the eternal punishment of this young man. He would walk through this city and conclude more everyday that he was selfish, for killing himself. That he was selfish for leaving his family behind, all his friends. Everyday those beasts would grow stronger, everyday those beasts reminded him more of the monster he was and is.

-A/N I don't remember writing this, but while looking through my documents I saw this and was attracted by its shortness. So I read it and found myself staring at the screen unsure of what I was even reading. At the end I found myself so surprised at this. I don't remember when or why I wrote this but...I hope you enjoy it. I just want you all to know that every story I write, has a little bit of me in everything. Even this. REVIEW DAMMIT!
