Hybrid 3, Chapter 40: Truly AloneChapter 40:Hybrid 3, Chapter 40: Truly Alone by CommnderShepard117
In a dark room, Alexander stood in front a giant window, staring blankly into deep space. Images of Cahan’s death and the destruction of the Garden of Eden kept flashing in his mind. He could still hear Seiton’s last words repeating. “I didn’t bring the Spacers to extinction, you did.”
Alexander couldn’t believe Seiton did this to him. His arch enemy found the surviving Spacers and turned them against everyone in the galaxy. His hand shook as he stabbed Cahan to death. He felt as he failed this battle despite saving Earth and most of the World Leaders.
Colonel Chan walked in the room with crutches and slowly got up to Alexander. Alexander didn’t hear him walk in. Colonel Chan stood next to him and Alexander continued to stare through the window.

He doesn't write poetry anymore.He doesn’t write poetry anymore,
even if he still collects it, reads it, saves it, treasures
faded verses from his wife the way connoisseurs

voiceless boys in white and draymen carting the dead to saltwater lakes,
elegiac undertones that haunt historians and forlorn painters.
He doesn’t write poetry anymore –
except when he does.
Just Have a Good DayBy Marshall Norman McCarthy
Just have a good day. He dragged the razor across his cheek, wincing as it tore instead of cut. Just have a good day. Were his eyes always this sunken; were the bags beneath them always so dark? Just have a good day. How was his wife still able to look at him with that old spark, the one that hadn't guttered out over the years?
'Just have a good day,' he repeated his mantra to his reflection, putting down the razor and checking his work. Free of stubble, yet his face seemed haggard, worn; another day's journey towards the end.
All his life he'd been told that men age gracefully, that they get better, more handsome with age. Thinking on that as he scrutinized the ever unfamiliar man in the mirror, he believed he understood now the word conceit.
'Just have a good day.' Now he was speaking to the cat, who sat on the little table near the front door watching him pull on his coat. How many times had he wished, in childish fashio
