Whether tis best to not let a drop of fallacy
come from thine lips, nor holdfast
the fullness of the truth even upon areas of taboo,
or to navigate the trials of everday discourse
with well placed flattery and false truths,
and in fibbing, maintain thine social position?
To placate, to survive? With a tongue of silver
and lips of gold dost not the crowd of thine peers
smile upon your entry and beckon thee to
accompany them? Can you not, with this
specie of mouth, simultaneously soothe both
solicitous supporters and slithering
snakes with one, gilded speech?
By one platinum word, an entire party’s
attention is forced to focus on your treacherous
diction with reverence commonly reserved
for the divine. However, although this clever
facade will grant thee a bountiful harvest
in conversation, does it not act
as a drought upon one’s conscience?
For the ability of man to speak their mind
is a gracious gift bestowed
upon us by the Lord o

pressing in like the bends
a hospital bed; a prison cell
you came to me like a scalpel
two-faced, three heads
that makes Six: this must be hell.
I've been churned over, remapped, flipped rightside-back by home surgeries to keep me shut away from you. I've spent countless days and sleepless nights, stitching closed the curtains that play with your phantom breeze flirtatiously, taking my jealousy out with a bonesaw scotch. The liver shakes when the heart aches, but it's just another damage on this canvass brain unwound for yards. It's become a football pitch of sorts, soil fed with so many headless graves for variants of myself, buried and unburied, all pushing daisies, counting petals of 'love me, love me not'.
Even or odd, I've still found loss.
I could write you ten thousand ballads, and it might never be worth the right kind of cologne. It might have never been worth one fuck in the dominican, the right kind of muscle, the jawline of a craggy neanderthal,

Frex: "You two are in a great amount of trouble!"
Zoot: "But sir we-"
Frex: "Silence! Not another word from you."
Shadow: "Uncle, please!? It wasn't his fault! I'm the one that entered, he didn't know."
Frex: "Young lady, that is no excuse. He should have been watching you. Do you have any idea what could have happened had you been caught?"
Shadow: "...I'm really sorry, uncle. I promise that it will not happen again, but please spare Zoot."
Frex: "...(Sighs) Very well, but you are to take his punishment instead. You are not allowed to leave the grounds for the next few moons, and you are strictly forbidden from the training area; its time you started acting like a princess."
Shadow: "But uncle-"
Frex: "No buts! Flog! Jen! Take the princess to her room. Zoot, you stay here. We need to have a talk."
Zoot: "Yes sir."
Shadow: "(Holds Zoot tightly) I don't want to leave you!"
Zoot: "(Pats head) Now, now, I'll be fine. Just go with Flog and Jen, and we'll talk later. Okay?"

The two young warriors gazed into the other's eyes; the tension between them was electrifying, an incredible display of strength and skill none had seen in one so young. For those that had still remained from the rest of the group of boys; they had taken a moment to stop fighting one another, and watch as the two fighters prepared to go head to head. All had remained deathly silent, even the audience had become captivated by the entire scene; it was extraordinary to see someone who was very skilled for once.
Jackal: "I hope you're ready to lose, Zero."
Zero: "We shall see. I have a feeling that Shadow, will leave you breathless by the end of this match."
Jackal: "Bah! Your thief has no chance, not even a little hope of getting a tiny nick on Leon."
Clue: "That may not be the case for very long, Jackal. Look. (Points to arena)"
Clue was right; Shadow and Leon's swords clashed, creating a loud echo that rang throughout the arena like thunder. As big as Leon was, Shadow had managed t
The Crow and the Storm - JENNAIt hurts to talk about my childhood, much less think about it. So much pain. I don’t know what went wrong, or why it did but my happy childhood came to an abrupt end when daddy started drinking, then he would get violent. Some days when he came home, he would beat me and mom, badly. It got so bad that one day mommy stopped coming home, I don’t know what happened to her, and after that the beatings continued until I ran away from home. The police would do nothing about this ordeal, most likely paid off by dad, or not important enough to the Zaar to start an investigation, it was probably his money again. I find my escape in school, where I found true peace, friends to confide in, faculty that was warm and welcoming, and even though the Zaar cut us off from the sun, I did my best. I wanted to prove to daddy that I was not useless, that I was not some genetic fluke to be tossed in the trash. I swore to him that I would prove himThe Crow and the Storm - JENNA8 hours ago in Drama More Like This
The Crow and the Storm - TALLOSAs a child, I had a wonderful family, a strong father who taught me the secrets of subtlety and stealth in both combat and civilian uses, and a kind and loving mother who taught me how to be creative, both on canvas and in the kitchen. I get the feeling this is why dad loved mom so much, everything she touched brimmed with genius level creativity, her paint strokes, a goddess of the brush for sure! I remember these times well the sun was shining so bright and felt so warm, I often found myself in many of the quiet zones of our land just soaking up the atmosphere, watching the weather go by, such great times. I spent any days just drawing in my sketchbooks and capturing the souls of my subjects on paper! If only I knew sooner that times would change so much so fast.The Crow and the Storm - TALLOS8 hours ago in Drama More Like This
