The Beginning and the End.

Apples...........

Cold was the room,

Cold..so cold like a mothers love and so very, very white.

The ghost of all hopes lost was there reveling in the sounds that are never heard again. New plastic and broken dreams fill the spaces between.

Nature abhors a vacuum and the vacuum abhorred anything natural within these 3 walls , walls that made up the white, white room.

Glass partition on the forth. The world can see inside and it trembles.

I walked in, hoping... but not much.

I watched that which were once human souls being sucked dry until the beings that were once humans, But are human no more stare blankness into the glass wall.

She comes at me like a starving beast Clipboard at the ready... I shiver.

Words I cannot understand, but lips that move.

They must mean something

I bow my head in frustration

The golden pigtails are talking at me.

I vow to escape, give up it was a farcical dream.. I shall never return, but my time is linear, and hers...? Sigh.

The room is colder now, it has been 3 hours I shall never see again and my soul is my will and my will is gone.

Behind the white door she has taken my life. All that I was..that I AM still, perhaps, behind the white door. Yes it is my life. I need it back.

Along the walls clones stare blankly at no one, machines glued to their hip eyes glued to themselves

They smile and a room filled with people shudders with delight.

I tap my finger, and scowl, but it doesn’t help.

I shouldn’t be here, the fault is within names, not mine are called to their fate.

And still....I wait.........A Clone, not my own golden pigtails doth come with a silver flash as she handed me back my life

“Sorry but it can’t be fixed. The battery is irreplaceable”

I feel nothing, I paid nothing. I owe... nothing

I lose 80 GB of all that I love, for nothing. Screw you Apple.

Horror, thy name is Future shock.....Will I take a 160 GB NEW version of the same model for $60?

Hell yes!
