SeptemberThe summer was so hotSeptember18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
the dogs stuck to the sidewalks
with the newspapers
and the black metal cans
everyone left waiting on the curb.
You could smell it
in the glass pitchers
on table tops,
and the sheets that never
dried on the clothes lines;
the canvas beach bags
mothers dragged wearily
across the sand
and the ice cream trucks
melting across the highways.
Children felt it open
up the windows at night
and find a corner
of the bed to smother,
while fathers baited it on hooks
or mowed it down
in flat, dry stripes
as if begging each other
And the crickets just hummed
beneath the corn silk
and the dry mouth
daring the cats to play
hide and seek -
searching for September.

to say how I really felt,
I'd tell you that
I hope you choke on your apologies
like they're arsenic
and your nails are already
with the poison.
I'd let you know
that I'll never be a body
for you to touch
just because I know that's all you want.
I'll never be a fairy in a bottle
at your waist.
this is no storybook, and
I am no myth.
hear my silence,
feel the cold absence
respond to your weak "I'm sorry"s.
I beg you,
stop digging the hole,
stop, just stop.
Hush and watch the flames
engulf the image you sold me.
you can tell me
I'm beautiful as much
as you want,
but I know that it's not enough,
that you'll always want more,
that you've been a wolf
between my legs all this time
and my fingers are bruised
from holding the leash.
now every time you whisper
"please be okay",
I will always tell you that
I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine.
I will forever pretend
that I've grown up from you,
that I've become a mystery

“If I could just reach for it…”
You stood on your tippy toes with a hand outstretched. Just an inch out of your reach was a Twinkie- on the top shelf of the cabinet.
“Just one more inch!” You bit your tongue. One more inch before you could taste sweet heaven.
Your fingers successfully touched it. “Yes!” Now all you had to do was grab it.
Astonishment riddled your features.
Looking in the direction where the Twinkie was taken you saw Bucky happily munching on it. He took a liking to these little cakes after Steve successfully persuaded him to move into Stark’s Tower with him and you.
Unfortunately like Thor, he too started munching away on your not-so-secret Twinkie stash.
Bucky leaned on the kitchen counter smirking.
“Bucky… that was my Twinkie” You said.
He chewed and swallowed before replying, “It doesn’t have your name on it”
Incredulous, you replied, “That was the l

❝ D-Don't say embarrassing things like that, Kenji! ❞
❝ Aha, sorry! You're just too cute! ❞
"[Name]-chi!" you jump at the sudden yell; thankfully, you didn't drop your food (otherwise it would have been a total waste of money). Futakuchi grins at the sight of you and snakes his arms around your waist from behind, placing small chaste kisses on your cheeks. Your face turns into a deep shade of red and you tried to tell him to get off of you (although stutters only came out of your lips as you attempted to tell him to remove himself off of you).
"I've been looking everywhere for you!" he says. He didn't want to remove himself off of you — he wanted to continue touching you, and holding you in his arms, feeling your warmth. And so, he held you tight, pulling you closer to him — not wanting to let you go. He rests his head on your shoulder, and he could see the colours of pink and red that covered your face. He smiled, "Why are you eati

However, if Cisna was unable to make it to the coronation, her cousin Isara would then be made queen instead. Everyone thought the two cousins loved and got along with each other but deep down Isara badly wanted to become the next queen
On the eve of her coronation some bandits broke into the castle on the orders of Isara to kidnap Cisna.
Cisna who had dark long hair had just finished her bath and was settling down to go to sleep in her bed clad in her long dark pink dress robe with white thick socks and just as she was closing her eyes she heard a soft struggle outside her doors. As she got up the door to her bedroom opened and the bandits came rushing in with her maid bound and thickly gagged and held between one of their arms.
"No! Let her go!" Cisna cried

It seems like yesterday,
We met and laughed,
Such a state.
The day we broke,
The time we spent,
Out in the grass.
The ticking clock,
The time flew by,
Now you’re away.
It ended in,
A brief good bye,
With a few drinks,
And in the words,
Of our favourites,
I totally miss you.

If I told you this story happened once upon a time, would you believe it then?
Perhaps, perhaps not.
Whether you believe me or choose not to, it happened. There were two little girls, and a bear.
And that is all I know.
At least, it is all I know for certain.
You were expecting more, weren't you? Very well.
One little girl was blonde, with skin white as snow, the other rosy and raven-tressed, so they say, but that doesn't seem very likely unless they weren't sisters at all, and I have always assumed they were sisters. It is almost inevitable that they were sisters. No story ever says much about the father. He was dead, or abandoned them. Perhaps they had two different ones. It's impossible to say.
I could tell you the girls were beautiful princesses who ran into the great dark forest to escape their wicked stepmother. Or perhaps they were abandoned by their poor woodcutter father who could no longer afford to feed them but could not stand to see them starve. Or were they just two ordin

Everypony is out and about this fine day, but among the crowd of ponies and other fine creatures that walk about the streets of Tambelon City, a hooded figure strolls on down the sidewalk...with his head and body covered in a fine, white cloak; Hiding his face and his wings apparently it seems...though the horn on his head is partially visible.
After walking for almost ten to twenty minutes, the brown coated stallion in white takes a turn to the right and passes by the front gates and lead to a fancy mansion just a short stroll up the hill.

rest here a little while longer with me
let me run my fingers in your long hair
I'm so glad that together we are free
you gave me a connection to share.
I had once thought you would leave
forever gone and I would be unforgiven
you said that I simply didn't believe
but you had never stopped being driven.
Feeling your skin now as it is bare
I can see the scars I have left on you
yet they're worn with pride and without scare
you loved me more than I ever knew.
Lay here with me, let me soak you in
into your warm, sweet scent I burrow
run your fingertips along my chin
wipe away my brow's furrow.
Yes, just as you've always done for me
through agonizing heartbreak and pain
even after you left me at that tree
after that, we both stood in sorrow rain.
I had been so foolish, so selfish before
I feared you would never take me again
but I ran hopeful and scared to your door
and it was a lack of love you couldn't feign.
A smile and kiss bound us together

Two young women got out of a car and started walking toward a slightly run-down hotel. They were both dressed in jewel-toned knee-length dresses, and looked almost like sisters, especially with their long brown hair done up in identical up-dos.
“Seriously, Maria, what on earth possessed the student council to have prom here, of all places?” asked the slim one in the shimmering green dress.
“It was cheap, Ginny,” replied the slightly taller one in the wine-coloured dress. “We had to find an alternative to the gymnasium thanks to the repairs. Besides, there are other advantages to the location.”
“Other advantages...” Ginny looked around, and her eyes widened. “We’re right next to a freaking nudie bar, how is that an advantage?”
“It’s a topless bar,” Maria replied absently. “My uncle Leo works there, though he’s taking the night off t

"Apparently so...The audio from the camera didn't come in very well, but you can see that-"
"Shut the f*ck up, Geek Girl! I know what I saw and I'm going over there to kick there asses straight back to Hell!!" The Goth was ready to storm out, but Suspender tried to keep him calm.
Breeches was worried since you and Boxer had been out for so long. She ended up finding a way to hack into the security system of the mall cameras and saw everything that happened; even out in the parking lot.
"And once I'm done with them, I'm going to f*cking slaughter Boxer!!" Sock then had his anger targeted towards Boxer as he saw the screen where Boxer was in the mall.
"Save your brotherly love until he gets back, idiot." Suspender continued to keep the brother relaxed.

She sat crying into her hands; invisible to those who surrounded her. She had been in the same spot for hours- unmoving and wretched, as the sun began to set in her blurred vision. With each fresh tear she shed- another person passed by.
No one saw the battered and broken young woman, because they didn’t wish to see something so awkward and ugly. They didn’t wish to be involved. So they willingly stayed blind.
The broken figure- a young girl on the cusp of womanhood- sat alone and abandoned, where someone could have helped her, but no one did. Hiding in plain sight, and shunned by all.
There was so much pain . . . broken and bloody and deranged. . . So much fear. . . More than she could take. . . More than she should have had to bear.

Watching them as they float,
Up and up,
Wondering where they will fly.
Hoping that one day,
They d reach him.
The one that disappeared,
And she has been longing to see for years.
But she knows that could never happen.
And she screams at the night,
Trying to see past the stars,
Wondering where her dead friends are.
The sky holds no answers for her.
And so she sends more balloons,
Of words she never said.
Wondering if the dead,
Watch down upon her.
And if they can hear her cries,
And how she d like to die.
Just to be by her lover's side.
More balloons float,
In the air.
To who knows where.
And she sits and waits.
Hoping one day,
She ll get an answer,
From the stars.
