reminded me sometimes of the estuaries
a mix of clear and calm with

exhale of expectations turn
flower into weeds
and saplings into
kindling – igniting
the boarded up home with
a spray of sea salt
the green flames turning
a plot of a memory against
the sweet swell of the sea
into a mirrored image
of blue and green
Lone Wolf No More01/29/15 22:23-22:42Lone Wolf No More6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The eternal night,
Is coming to a close.
The dawn has come,
Lone Wolf no more.
For the Lone Wolf,
Possibly, a mate...
A small playful creature,
Younger than he,
Beaten and abused,
He saw himself in her,
Something he wished to not see happen to another.
He took her in,
At first she was shy,
For good reason.
A strange unseen creature he was.
He helped her any way he could,
The Little Tiger shy,
Grateful, but quiet.
Yet, she warmed to him.
Good friends they became,
Happiness growing in another,
Like a cub,
The Little Tiger was very playful.
At first, the Lone Wolf merely watched.
But, began to play as well.
Slowly, but surely,
They fixed another.
But, not without doubt,
For the Little Tiger always feared.
The Lone Wolf merely assured,
Through play, the Little Tiger,
Put a spark back into his eyes,
A pulse in his body.
She fell for him,
Taken back he was,
For only one before h

Not too well, as much to my dismay
Somebody came down one night and told me, “Here. You can have it.”
I replied, “Gee thanks. You’re such a git.”
I was struck by a car on Thursday
Not too well, although one had to say:
“Watch where you’re going! I had to take the turn!”
The other turned around and snarled, “Where did you go to learn??”
No punches were pulled. Silence was the violence.
I retreated to my nest, I retreated for a rest.

Wallflowers IIIWallflowers II1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The Wallflower that wilts even as she tries to bloom,
wants to step away from the dark corner in the room.
And mingle in the jungle of what it means to socialize,
But she fears the derision spied in judgemental eyes.
Petals are littering the floor.
Crushed, scattered, and torn.
The stem, her spine, curled into itself.
And she has absolutely nobody to tell,
What it's like to live in someone else's shadow,
as she lays her head upon a tear-stained pillow.
With the notion she might not belong anywhere,
placing a strain on a heart that used to soar high,
The Lonesome weeps and prays someone will care,
to counteract the insecurity that's rendered her shy.
The Wallflower huddles even as he fights to straighten,
with the hope his awkwardness will magically disappear.
Because the side line can be such a humiliating location,
and he s intimidated by the antagonism from his peers.
Petals are littering the floor.
Crushed, scattered, and torn.
The stem, his spine, curled into itself.

Pillars rose to unknown gods
A pantheon declared by neon
And in their divine light
I sheated my silver tooth
Claws rusted by living machines

Divided by neon gods
Crimson scourges their temples
As the concrete jungle rises with the sun

the Gods themselves were only to be restrained by the reflected concept of brace scarlet
Pitch feather's screech, inflict calamity reverberate throughout the scene

Theyre the brightest green with hazel specks.
The "portal to your soul,"
And part of mine.
I can see myself within you.
When Im home I get lost in your smile,
Your lips that are soft and pink.
The ones I yearn to kiss each day,
And speak to my soul.
I cant wait to kiss you again.
When Im home I am in your arms,
Theyre surprisingly strong and gentle.
The strong embrace that warms me,
And I know Im home.
I cant wait to be home some day soon.
The Real MeI'll admit, not many people know about me.The Real Me19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's mostly because of how shy I tend to be.
Now don't be discouraged,
I am a social butterfly on the inside, I promise.
It just takes some coaxing to bring it out of me.
If it would help, I could tell you what I like?
I like winter, for starters.
There’s just something about the wintery sea.
To tell you the truth, it excites me.
And video games, I like to play;
To waste my boring summer days away.
Movies even, and the good kinds.
Lord of the Rings and Star Wars,
The kinds that some call ‘geeky’.
I like going to the mall,
But only to go into the book stores.
I love weaving between bookshelves,
Looking for the next awaiting adventure.
If you were to get to know me,
I just might surprise you;
For, I’m not as I may seem.

BIONICLE SONG - OUR DESTINY (toa mata tribute)
The evil started, canisters have fallen
Matorans panic, some masks are stolen
The main shadow is still hidden
Planning to take them freedom breathing
Where are those ages full of inovating
Peace everywhere, no one gives a shit about hating
Makuta is risin', their god's asleep on a safe place
So we are here to change it, take down his dominating-
-argh, Rahkshi are everywhere
We don't know our fate, but it's on our hands
We need to unite, make it through the end
We won't let them steal our dearest friends
Our mission is starting, we want to find our destiny
It's so easy, isn't it?
Those shadows hates our vision, they're gonna expire anyway
We can't choose to die, so sharp your blade!
If Mata-Nui is still not awoken
Then we gonna let him rise!
Doesn't matter how many of us are fallen
We won't stop and gonna fight!
We were built to protect
Doesn't matter what are our choices
Our destiny we keep inside of our heart!
Maybe we are young

all swagger; you, smooth talker,
enjoy making girls fall for you,
so you can kick them in the teeth.
I was just the challenge,
the girl who wouldn’t swoon.
I should have seen you coming a mile off,
but circumstance, and such…
You feigned the friend, you fiend,
and bit by little bit, drew me in.
Was it all just your little game?
Where rules are subject to change?
Now, you smile with fangs,
a coiled viper, waiting for me
to give that one last thing:
precious cargo you didn’t need,
You push. I bend. But,
my pulse outweighs your greed.
You’re all rouge and smile,
all swagger; you, smooth talker,
enjoy making girls fall to their knees,
so you can kick them in the teeth.
You did not expect, I’d still have mine.
And I stand on my own, just fine.
