Now We Build

Now We Build

A Story by C.N.Moore

So deserted…desolate, I’ve never seen such vast emptiness. Ive seen chaosdestruction, I’ve even seen death; but this?  I’ve never seen anything quite like this.  There, right in front of me, that was the shop I got my first haircut at, and there just… well, it wasjust across the street; that was the cafe we would have lunch at once a week.  And just up the way, yes right up there… there was the giant clock tower that overlooked the entire town.  I remember sneaking in and climbing the stairs to the top, just looking outwatching the daily commotion as it hurried along.  Some days I would spend hours up there, now its gone… merely rubble, ashand debris.  What could have happened?… It hasn’t been so long since my last visit… and last time I was here it was so busy, so much was happening… my precious imagination what has happened to you? Where did you go? Where did I go?  Did I abandon you for so long that reality erased all we made together?  Well i’m back, its me, i’m here for good this time and we have a lot of work to do, a lot of lost time to make up for, lets start with this pebble, yes this one here… now we build.

I felt as if I were with you, and you took my hand guiding me, showing me everything as we walked through an old memory. I like the personification here. If you ever do decide to leave again, I hope I can come with you again to find your way back.

Art is creation - you can not create without destruction. Never be afraid to destroy the fibers of existence inside your mind, paying close attention to how everything works, and when it comes time t.. more..
