Slivers of light(French version below)Slivers of light2 years ago in Free Verse
The most dreadful winter of my life came.
I abandoned the idea of a blossoming future,
Fled the misery of my own motherland,
For a woman I have far too often dreamt of.
Among the singing buds of the Shinto shrine
A white plum caresses my back,
Its petals lull me, my eyes are sealed, sweet reverie,
A convent of grass
The junk of my thoughts
Send me to Amaterasu.
Blushing Lotus, enticing Lilacs, panting Azaleas,
So many mistresses!
Enough perfumes to be drunk from them.
Why, my promise, have I been waiting so long to join you?
Your hair like Sakura flowers
Your laughters sound like Shamisen.
Over the pond, a dragonfly sits down and begins to dream

You looked at your classmate, Light Yagami, he was gorgeous, all the girls liked him and you had an extremely low chance with him. But you still had a huge crush on him. One you knew wouldn't go away easily. He glanced over at you with a confused look. Oh no! He caught me staring at him again! You felt a blush run across your face and you hurry to look back at the teacher. After moment you felt a tap on your shoulder and look over to see Light looking at you "____, Did you need something? It looked like you needed to ask me something" You panicked for a second "Um, yeah. I wanted to take notes but, you know, I um don't have a pen on me." He smiled at you and you felt your blush grow "Here, use mine. I already know this stuff so I don't really need to take notes," You took the pen and accidently brushed his hand "S-sorry" He laughed his usual good-tempered laugh "It's ok" you turned back to the teacher and took out your notebook. You couldn't pay attention to the class; the feel

L and Light were in their office, working on a new case.
L sighed as he looked over at Light, recently, L realised he had an odd feeling whenever he was around Light but he could never seem to quite figure out what it was that he was feeling.
After a moment L looked at light again, at his brown hair, his amber eyes, his body... I wonder...this feeling...is it - could it be -
"Ryuuzaki? Is something wrong?"
L was brought back to reality with a thump.
Amber eyes locked with deep black, and L felt a light blush grace his cheeks.
"N-no, I'm fine, Yagami-kun,"
Light stood up and walked over to L
Light was standing right in front of L now, and he felt himself blush even more. L cursed under his breath at himself.
"Are you sure about that, Ryuuzaki? You seem...kinda, well....different, not yourself,"
L looked away for a moment, and Light had a feeling that L was rather nervous, well, as far as he could guess, anyway.
Light?Enlighten me,Light?1 year ago in Free Verse
For my stellar light turns feeble.
Do I want to see?
I’m trying to find shelter into my own shadow,
For it drags me to The Hollow -
The hungering night that bends my mind.
Will I ever be refined?
For my stellar light is flashing,
Do I really want to see?
Instill blood into my veins,
For I have been dehumanized –
I’m tangled up with an eternal haze.
Only the darkness remains.
For my stellar light has died,
I don’t want to see…
Embracing the LightSilence...Embracing the Light6 years ago in Free Verse
Through your mind streams
Nothing but delirium dreams
The uncountable cost...
Of who you were!
Not who you are!
A soul forged from fire and pain!
Brighter than the brightest star!
Is so different now!
You can see you own way,
You can your way out...!
Embracing the truth,
Embracing the light!
Will take away forever,
This endless night!
And all your nightmares...
You are so self aware...
And you are scared...
And although the past is still there,
You know it, it follows you everywhere,
You have the strength to stand firm,
The strength to let loose your fire,
The strength to learn...
Each of us burns...
With a fire that can't be denied,
Through your mind screams...!
A forgotten dream...!
No more loss...
No more of what was...

Sepia LightHe could be the lead of a silent movieSepia Light4 years ago in Free Verse
in all its sepia glory. There is
dust on the film; and light-
that shines hazily through the smoke and jazz
of the old world.
She smiles while beauty marks pepper the screen
and nobody notices. Not even him.
There is a woman stroking the theater piano lovingly to hide
the voices floating through the air as silent as ash.
He waits with impious attention for old-fashioned lines
to cross over the stage and whisper something,
something new to him.
But anything that could waltz off their tongues
is caught and held by the cigarette filter projector.
Left to crackle, as the piano moans under the woman's
coffee stained caress.

A cool wind blew across the Banishlands, causing the gray mare atop the hill to shiver. Winter was retreating, but a deep gloom still flickered over the land. Dark storm clouds loomed high in the sky, and to the southeast, the Lorarem Mountains soared into infinity. The mare snorted, tossing her light gray mane. The rainy weather disturbed her. In a life before, the black clouds above her head would have meant more than a wet coat. But now, they were a simple sign that a moist night was closing in.
Letting out a deep sigh, Yalda arched her neck to glance at the black stallion that stood at the foot of the grassy hill. In the shadowy light, Razarrs coat shone like ebony obsidian, powerful muscles etched out in his fur. Letting out a high-pitched whinny, Yalda swished her tail, blue eyes flashing. Razarr lifted his massive head, turning to gaze at his mate. The st

What is it Ryuzaki?
Yagami-Kun You havent a single blemish on your face
Light tried hard not to smirk at this small remark, but instead replied, Thats why girls love me They fall for smooth faces like mine.
L Smiled, and then wiggled his toes. But before L could look away, Light stroked his pallid face slowly; His fingers cold against his tender skin.
L Looked up at Light, Yagami-Kun what are you--... Light silenced him by looking up sharply into his dark eyes. L Shut his mouth quite tightly; he did not trust Lights gaze, and didnt enjoy locking with it, so he looked away quickly, standing up from Lights grasp.

She panted, heart pounding as she stood in the center of town. She could hear the blood coursing through the veins in her ears, sounding like the roar of a distant ocean. Her mind was numb, barely registering where she was or that she was covered with a sticky red substance, the pungent scent of copper filling the air. Her eyes slowly fell to an object on the ground: a stained knife that glinted in the midday sun. Next to it was a growing red pool. Her eyes trained on the pool and slowly moved to its source.
The deed had been done.
Luna's Moon hung high above Equestria, its gentle rays bathing the countryside in an eerie glow as it slowly trekked across the cobalt-hued sky. Near Ponyville, the light illuminated a lone figure winging somewhat less gracefully than normal above the town. It was very late and she was exhausted, but Rainbow Dash didn't ca
In The Dark, There Is Always LightThere are places so darkIn The Dark, There Is Always Light4 years ago in Free Verse
That we can't see
There are places so dark
That we feel lonely
There are whispers in the dark
That makes our ears bleed
There are whispers in the dark
That makes us scared
As the darkness surrounds us
We look for a light
As the darkness embraces us
We start to fight
We don't want to live a life
In the dark
We don't want to live a life
In the shadows
As we look for a source of light
As we look for a small hope
There is always someone there
Even when it's dark
There is always someone there
Who will ignite your spark
You're never alone
Even in the dark
You're never alone
Not even in your heart
In the darkness we find light
But we forget who helped us in the start
In the darkness we find our fright
But we never forget how it fell apart
We live in shadows to hide for ourselves
Cause we know that deep within us
Is something we do not want someone else to see
A monster of a kind, something that's not really you
But it will always be a part of

Right there for you to see

If it's still there?
And if you're not afraid
Of losing yourself

The clock tower has the most lonely
view of the industrial sunrise,
rising like the old Indian song inside.
From where I sit, sunlight
drips like honey fresh
from the earth over concrete elegance.
Sometimes autumn feels like winter.
Once a classy hotel
and now an urban puzzle,
consumed by kudzu creeping
all along the broken windows,
choking the windchimes.
How do cities understand
what soul sings behind their windows?
There’s so many different suns
desperate to connect;
the light through a dirty
windshield; the sun in an empty
room; something ordinary in the quiet
presence of light and shadows.
Some moments are golden,
as if even the city knows
the art of being perfectly still.

Then I will run as fast as I can.
"Hang in there, get through the tunnel!"
Believe me, I'm doing the best I can...
I run dead ahead, trying to reach the light,
But the shadows surround me, and hold on tight.
As I break free from them, it takes all my might,
As I run, it seems to just get further out of sight.
But yes, I see it! That glorious light!
As I keep running, and the light gets brighter.
I propel myself forward with the last of my might,
Too late, I realise, the light is a flamethrower...

Without you I am lost,
But when you're there,
You light my whole world.
So be the light,
When I am the dark

I waited for the stars
And they shined
I waited for the sun
And it rose,
But I know you're my sunshine,
That's why you're there,
That's why you're my light.

Time is a human construct ably abetted by the sky, the stars. We looked at the sky and decided to delineate day and night, to make them into two halves, when in fact they were just fine whole.
Prehistory – our prehistory – we were overwhelmed by the sky. Cave paintings and inscriptions are a myriad of hypothetical disasters, stars falling, bursting, chelating. For we saw the Milky Way in all its wonder, all white dust, blue light and rosy curls, a solid mass hanging heavy in the sky.
A girl has prehistory as well. Before she is born, before she is even the star twinkling in her mother’s eye, her parents meet. They fall in love because the stars deem them compatible. The mother, an Aquarius, full of intellect and dreams. The father, a Taurus, rooted so firmly in the ground that he has enough foundation to lift the world. Both are fixed signs, revolving around one another, becoming the binary.
The Kalahari have a myth: deep in the desert, a

Rivals' Kiss. L x Light.Rivals' Kiss.Rivals' Kiss. L x Light.7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word
So, it has come to this,
I'm trying to kill him,
He's trying to catch me,
And yet I shared this kiss.
He's a strange dark eyed fellow,
With baggy clothes and bare feet,
Astute and watching everything,
Crouching on his high red seat.
I managed to get close,
He finally let me in,
He thinks I'm on his side,
But I'm just trying to win.
My intellectual rival,
We're polar opposites- very clever,
When he catches up with me,
I'm at the end of my tether.
I act as his friend and ally,
And I know that he suspects me,
But one day soon I'll learn his name,
Write it down and I'll be free.
So why has it come to this,
When I want to kill him,
And he wants to catch me,
That we share in this kiss?
This is no time to kiss,
Especially not him,
He's my nemesis,
Is HE just trying to win?
No, it must be a fluke,
But I can't pull away,
Perhaps opposites DO attract,
Perhaps he feels the same way.

then I'll disappear
