Tonight the rain cascaded round
Its voice like soft laughter
Then I looked beside me
On the bed
And her soft laughter was like the rain
The heaven may cry or it may laugh
Like the one I love
She was made there for me
She reflects all there is above

To the tune of Mozart
Around my room the rain cascading
Like a Heaven-sent waterfall
A gift of those who came to earth
To bless me for keeping her
The voice of the rain is soft laughter
Shared by those inside
Outside nobody hears the rain's laughter
Nor knows that inside we echo it
Heaven's secret is shared
Soul CollectorsThere are those that dependSoul Collectors1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
upon the sun, they cling around
its edges, afraid of losing sight of it,
plastered against it, they follow
wherever it goes, trusting only
its light to lead their way,
and when it begins to stretch
far out of the reach of their eyes
they are rendered paralyzed,
and like the shadows find a way
And there are the more daring ones
who navigate by the stars,
entrusting their bodies to those
celestial lights which burn through the night,
over womb-like, yet often hungry,
devouring seas they follow these
ghosts of the sky, reminders of pale
gaslights, they beckon home.
But this is nothing to the often neglected
ones who give themselves over to the
borrowed light of the moon,
they are the collectors of souls,
and eaters of sorrows,
upon their backs they carry
the dust of dreams
how closely they dance with death,
how strangely fragile they appear
for all the mysteries which
they carry away to bury
beneath unmarked graves.

The only reason
We do not hear the screaming of trees
Is because they have lost their voices
Being so locked up inside
That terrible madness that comes

In the sultry
gas is stranded
in a shallow
The full moon
rises, gripping ghostly
shades, with its glow.
In sun or moon, held
prisoner by this place.

I was pretty much dead. Just... Lying there, bleeding out, starving to death and... Utterly heartbroken. The door opened. It slammed against the wall. I didn't even look. The person who had entered shouted: ''Today, you go to the factory! Making sugar for the citizens! I'll give you five minutes to get ready." He left the room.
I had to get up... My back stung like a Scorpion and my limbs had less power than a phone without its charger, being used constantly. I swung my legs around and eventually got up, limping a lot. Then, Crimsoon arrived, carrying a small Ducklett! Food!
He landed and split it... In my favour. He claimed I needed it more. I devoured it like a tiger without food for a year. It was sweet and above all, divine in taste. The sweetness of it ran through my veins and revitalised my body. The pain was still there though.
Crimsoon suddenly fluttered away. Then the door opened. He was back. This time, I could see him. He was a tall man with

They burst forth with such zeal that it’s almost
as if they’ve been crouching all winter like little green cats
muscles coiled and tails lashing,
leaping out in snarls of violet from their earthy dens at the first
sound of birdsong.

Big white fluffy clouds.
Adored by little children,
And sometimes fickle crowds.
Swirling ones bring lighting
Black ones bring the rain,
Winds display your writing
Thunder’s drum scream pain
Before the cooling breeze
White ones bring the shade,
Cov’ring little bees
As they putter ‘round the glades.
And just as it begun,
Is it time to sit, or run?

Where am I going? No one knows.
Within the woods I spy a bird
Whose music I have never heard;
And coming for me is a snake -
My coming here was a mistake!
And in the pond I see a frog,
A little thing with eyes agog;
And hiding somewhere in the sand
Are insects, spiders, rodents and
A million things I haven't seen
In life or death or in between:
The streets are twisting threads of gray;
Where am I going? Far away.

Summer has claimed the parched life.

the moon rises high.
She’s so beautiful,
like a big and glowing white flower.
The moon’s blood falls on my cheek
as it reaches its highest peak.
It falls on the pavement
like a sparkly, dazzling rain.
Except this rosy rain is blood.
Suddenly it stops!
The wound has healed.
But I know,
the blood of the moon
will come again soon.

they look for absolutes and often
it is found
they have no concept of how much they are swallowing.
Fighting AbuseI hate seeing the protection of abuse. If you cannot fight abusers or speak up for the victims, at least for the protection of your own loved ones, if not for your fellow species, then you are weak in my eyes. We need more openly strong and honest people in this world if we are going to overcome the destructive abuse epidemic that continues to spread.Fighting Abuse6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
If you are affected by the craziness around you, that means you are more sane than the people surrounding you who wander around pretending that nothing is wrong, quietly defending and enabling those who have hurt you and others. Do not be afraid to break. You're only breaking a shell that your mind used to protect you. You've gotten stronger, hence the breaking of that shell. You no longer need protection. Stay strong and aware and you will always win.

I woke up that morning... Feeling... Peculiar. I then remembered why. The web bandages were still being used. I stood up. Then... Sat down again. I was still too tired to do anything. I sat there, thinking what I should do. Then Shider came in.

"Yes. I did. Thank you for the bandages." I replied.
"You are probably sssssstill injured. Isssssss there anything I can help you with?"
"Yes... Actually. Would you mind buying some things for me?"
"What do you need? I'll do my besssstesssssst."
I wrote a small list out. Meat for Sombra, food...
Then I put a note at the bottom saying he can spend the rest on what he wants.
I handed him the money needed and some extra.
He left immediately and came back, sooner than I expected.
"I'm back. I've got the ssssssstuff you assssssked for."
"Thank you very much."
"Mind If I assssssk a quessssstion?"

My bare feet tapping on the ground
Stirring around and around to thunders sound
The smell of electricity lies in the air
Wet drops of water flying from my hair
The lighning shows us our way
With strength in our heart
And wings by our soul
Its what makes us whole
Laughter ringing in my ears
We've been following the bears
Just little kids on the run
And I am dancing in the rain

i told you all about the stories i took to heart.
the trees were alive and they were wise and
i told them all to smile,
and you tried to get the science behind it.
you can't measure happiness in science.
you can measure dopamine,
and how tall a plant is and how green,
but you can't measure your feelings with such a rudimentary process.
you made up something about vibrations
and brushed me off
and i feel a little bad because i guess
people don't believe
that their houseplants feel loved
and their gardens are full of life
and their world is littered with living things
with souls and feelings
that are not people
