The Darkness of the NightIt's the middle of the nightAnd you stumble towards the light,Completely drunk and yetThe voice in your head makes a betThat it is nowhere near drunkEnough to stop the thunkAnd thud pounding in your head.You make it to the light and now it is time for bed.You sleep and you dreamBut you seemto be being invaded by a noiseso you wake and step over the toysthat litter the floor,which your niece left by your door.You carefully undergoAn operation to avoid the legoWhich is scattered about the roomAnd you know your feet are doomedAnd you feel the pain as the brickEnters your feet and so you pickIt out and hop in silent agony,Across the floor to safety.It's pitch black and you edge towardsThe stairs, care full not to tread on the board Too late!

dA village entryShe walked around the empty town of the unknown, portfolio case tightly tucked under her left arm. She pulled her thin, multicoloured coat around her, partly because of the cold, and partly because she was frightened. Down town dA is a scary place to be. A tile fell off the building below and a scurry of small children ran over to it with deposable cameras. Blinding flashes lit the dark ally way which she walked down. She lifted her grey eyes up to the black, imposing clouds above and let the watercolour rain splash on her face."Are you alright darlin'? Wanna see my profile?" screeched a high pitched voice. She turned around and came face to face with a Pageview whore. She backed a way from the whore who had now returned to feeding her fursona, and something which the whore referred to as an "Ego".
