in their sleep;
of red bitten necks
wet with spit,
the birds dream of their eggs
and runny -
the mice dream of hearing
that tabby cat scream
as the teeth of life rip

in a pool
Crystal, sky blue
in the air.
Clear cloud white
bubbles bursting with
warm summer sunlight.
The cool beauty
against your skin
takes your breath away.
No Fury Like WomanNo Fury Like WomanNo Fury Like Woman20 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
No man alive can play dumb
Why the weather bureau gives a woman's name
To a tropical storm
When eventually either comes
She is a raging tempest
Bound to wreck his home
The storm bears woman's fury
And the man must leave them in a hurry
But I stay calm
No storm has the name Puabi
"Please come and rest with Puabi, beloved."
Winter's KissI am a child of snow,Winter's Kiss10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
An ice-touched queen
With a heart that burns as
Bright as summer and hot as hell.
December calls with frozen chimes
And songs of long dead travellers
Trapped below a frozen lake where
Sails flicker in static motion and history
Gathers dust amongst the rigging of time.
But the spring brings warmth and life and death
To all things I know. The frost melts, the ground thaws
And my heart begins to go cold against the heat of my chest.
I am a child of winter, touched by the cold dead fingers of a witch
Whose kiss tasted like the melting ice of the spring rains.

Written by Naturalselection001.
The lawn is covered in white diamonds,
Twirling round and round.
Their soft petals come free at once,
And fall onto the ground.
The soft puffs of summer breeze,
Carry them all away.
Until the stalk and the centre,
routed firm, they do stay.
The wind puffs relentlessly,
At these jewels of nature.
Yet they stand tall, strong and proud.
And thrive, they can be sure.
For daisies are strong flowers...

Come out to play.
The night has arrived and
The sun's fled the stage.
Two, three, six, twelve
Can manage this game.
It isn't hard to pretend
That life is long,
But that the nighttime
Jousts are longer still.
Do not doubt the darkness
Because it has hands and claws and
A mind of its own,
And pawns on its chessboard,
And a black painted queen
On a throne
And knights to protect her

über einem tintenschwarzen Meer.
Es greift bestimmt schon nach meinen nackten Füßen
flüstert leise "komm näher, komm näher"
Traurig seh ich in der Ferne,
wie ein neuer Tag erwacht.
Das Rot erstickt Millionen Sterne
und sie fallen in ihr nasses Grab.
Wie viel ist ein Leben wert,
das in dieser unbekannten Schwärze,
so leicht von seinen Fesseln lässt
was in Schmerz und Not hierher gebracht?
Mir träumte, ich sah dies Meer hier wandern,
tiefer, dunkler auf mich zu.
Wäscht es mir doch von der Seele,
was ich trage, schenkt mir Ruh.

When I woke up that morning, I couldn't see anything. The sugar, from yesterday, was sealing my eyes shut. I spent a solid five minutes rubbing my eyes to get rid if it. I looked at my reflection, in a small pool of water, in the corner if my room. The stuff was undrinkable though. With the amount of whiteness on my face, I may as we'll be a clown at the circus. I rubbed my face in attempt to get the stuff off. It hurt a lot.
I just sat there. Quite thirsty. It's been nearly a week since I last drank. It's a good thing that Zoroarks aren't like humans and can survive without water for a bit longer. I'd say I've got... About 4 days left. Unless I die in other ways.
Crimsoon arrived again, carrying a large slab of meat. We began to eat it. He was pretty hungry too.
"So, Sombra. What have you been forced to do, so far?" He asked.
"Terrible things-" I replied, "I had to walk constantly for hours and have my face thrown
Wolves DanceThe swish of the grassWolves Dance1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
The sway of the trees
All so comforting on the cool summer breeze
A lonesome howl floats on the wind
Singing a prayer to the moon
Soon another joins the first
And now the forest rings
In a land burned red by the dying sun
The wolves dance has begun
The smoothest motion like water on glass
The moon does sway as the caribou prance
Mother earth sings her song
And the wolves wildly dance along
The swaying grass and the sweetest breeze
Flowing through a chorus of trees
A fleeting movement
A gentle step
A sudden burst of speed
The endless motion of prancing feet
They swing as if in a dream
The caribou fleet and the wolves so fast
They leap high into the sky
At last it is done
The song has been sung
One less dancer on the floor
The passion and joy in that final echoing note
May the wolves dance forever more
Lonely CurbsLonely Curbs1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
He looked at me with blue eyes
Street lights washed a hue of deep orange, over
Blades of grass,
Tall buildings covered in glass,
A blue lighter that only sparked,
And smoke that billowed like white, Silk from a cigarette.
Keeping company to lonely curbs
We talked for hours, in snow
He looked at me with blue eyes
My hands covered in gloves too big for me,
But they weren't mine
His wrapped around now cold coffee. But sly smiles and orange light kept us warm
Held tight in the bleak grip of reality We saw hope
And sat around its fervent flames to delude the harsh truth of our lives,
If only for a second.
He tilted his head down
Cocked slightly to the side
Slumped his shoulders toward cold pavement
And looked at me with blue eyes,
That burned a scare into my memory.
He used to look at me with blue eyes And everything else he had
Now I'm left with orange lights and white silk.

been more satisfying
Is all I feel
Till I've grown thirsty
I've had my belly filled
But what I want
All I want
The ever elusive one
Faster than Gazelle
More stamina than Hyena
And I want you
This last is
Do or Die
If I don't catch you
Full of bullshit
Roaring out the mouth
And then cats will once again
Feed their king
But if I catch you
Every step pushed forward
Ounce of strength
It will be all on my own
my biggest struggle
My greatest triumph
The king is hungry
Live or die

The Saint in the Sepulcher“The tiger’s rising,”The Saint in the Sepulcher9 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
the mist told the chapel
and the chapel told the saint inside
“The tiger comes,” she said
and the saint
than a rosebush high
and two fence posts wide
cried aloud in delight
it was never known which
or whether it was both
and he took his tapers and fled below
to the sepulcher
among the bones
of lords and ladies
clutching their rosaries
drinking their tea
and rotting beneath
the green sickly moon tonight
the stars gasping
and the mist dancing foxtrot upon the belfry
in taffeta and a tippet
the whippet hounds howling high
“O’ holy night, the Christ child comes,”
sang the saint
in the sepulcher
with his hands ‘round his hymn book
and a cross ‘round his throat
and then the tiger rose
silent as the snow
and ate the mist in the churchyard
so the chapel stood unshrouded
bright and shining
a song rising from her bowels
the saint still singing, weeping
“Hallelujah, hallelujah, tonight is Chris

Die Sandkörner darauf erstrahlen noch ein letztes Mal in allen Facetten des Regenbogens,
bevor das Licht verblasst.
Der Tag stirbt, doch du hälst mich sicher in deinen Armen.
Und der Südwind und das Salzwasser waschen unsere Herzen aus, wischen die Anker fort die uns am Boden halten.
Was bleibt ist ein Gefühl von Stille und von Dunkelheit.
Und der bittere Geruch des Meers.

brechen sich die Gewalten bahn.
Brechen Bande und der Wille
zu sinken wird unendlich stark.
verschwinden in den tosend Fluten,
ertrinken in dem dunklen Nass.
In grünen Tiefen Land vermuten,
kein Leid, kein Zorn, kein Hass.
Doch rauschend steigt man aus den wellen,
ein leeres salzgewaschenes Geschöpf.
Will nur noch für einen Moment verweilen
In absoluter Schwerelosigkeit.
