Between Darkness and DawnDrip drip drip .
Darkness thick as binding pitch did little to stifle the ceaselessly damnable echoes in Loki's prison beneath the mountain. He tried to shut it out, dozing fitfully when he dared to close his eyes. Endless, the stream of poison dropped (drip drip ) into the bowl held above his head, a steady rain of vengeance....
He'd liked the rain, once. He used to sit outside all afternoon some days watching the downpour, wondering what adventures Thor had gone off on, wishing he'd come along. But today .
"Father?" Frightened and sleepy, Loki's youngest son padded over to him on cat-silent feet, folded himself into his lap.
"Narvi?" Loki was surprised; Sigyn had put the children to bed hours ago. "What is it?"
The child buried his small face in his father's shoulder. "Th-the storm s-scares me."
Loki almost laughed, but restrained himself.
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,
