Orchids of white.There's a bouquet of orchids,Orchids of white.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trailing by satin slippers,
And an organ plays, soft and slow,
As I wander to eternity,
To the whispers and glitter,
Of covered faces, and shades of gold
And there stands a man,
Veiled by white,
His steel eyes, meeting mine.
And connected we fall,
Down past forever,
To the beginning of time.
LiquoriceI'd tell you that I remember,Liquorice1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
But somewhere down the line,
You passed out of mind.
And that lasting,
Sugar-baby lie lost its shine.
I lost touch,
with cotton candy,
and Your wasabi kisses.
So i'm back to Aniseed,
To leather and Liquorice,
Our fingertips holding on to melting snow
And lingering glances to tomorrow.
My Soldier BoyHe had fine lines, from smiling too broadly,My Soldier Boy1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And weathered skin, despite his few years,
Not model perfect, but rugged, capable.
His mossy eyes caught mine, their edges
Crinkled, with that beautiful half smile.
It's hard to imagine him now,
Back from the battlefields,
Screaming at night, hollow and alone.
Scars crisscrossing down his sides,
One's I could draw from memory,
That rip my soul to pieces;
My darling, came home to me,
As broken as I was
Before he fixed me.

peppermint sticks grow out of hallowed out eye sockets of the dead
alcohol staining your breath a moist brown
sliding down my throat
sticky cancerous film coats me eyes, my nose coats my teeth
you cant remember
sand in my hair
black butterflies fill my stomach
acidic poppies scorch and scar
i thought we had communicated
in flashing street lights
and stick bugs
through misquote attack
why cant you sing to me?
seagulls of gold
and fish of bronze
monsters dance at the corners of my vision
you seem to blend in so well
ash on my keyboard
the tumors bloom in my lungs
and marijuana sex scenes
all and nothing
i guess i leave it up to you
stay if you want
hollow blush colored shells remind me
i guess ill go to bed tonight
through the dark i slumber
and the thoughts come in like ticker-tape
so ill just leave it up to you

baby, the skeletons in my closet are rattlin'
and they're keeping me awake
them brittle bones are moving
they're shaking, and they quake
i thought the door was firmly shut,
the key turned in the lock
but the pounding's getting louder
don't know when it's gonna stop.
what's a secret without telling?
what's a lie without the truth?
my brain's in fucking overdrive
threatnin' to blow out the roof
baby, the skeletons in my closet are rattlin'
and they're keeping me awake
the wood has started splintering,
don't know how much more it can take
confessions are never easy
unless the gossip's not you're own
but them bones they keep a' rattlin'
they grumble and they moan
one my lips were sealed
sewn up with nylon thread
but my memory's come back to haunt me
regret's reared it's ugly head
baby, the skeletons in my closet are rattlin'
they're keeping me awake
and i am growing tired,
my head's begun to ache
thought is a powerful weapon
but an action's something more
an irreversible decision
FamousI want fame;Famous1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want people to love
Not me but my name and
I want to be loved
By many so that
No one person knows how
Deep my loneliness runs.
I crave loyalty;
Not only loyalty but
Respect that shields
Me from prying tongues.
I want to be
Loved but not
Left to my own devices.
The shallow adoration
Of many is much less
Critical than the tender
Concern of one.
Cigar GirlA plume of smoke escaped her parting lips,Cigar Girl2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Twisting into a vine of vapour above her eyes,
Drifting through still summer air.
A glowing cigar, resting between her fingertips,
A lipstick print on the smooth roll.
She traced the skyline,
For fruit bats, and signs;
Telling her what she already knew.
Her smokey, heavily lidded eyes,
Sultry and uninviting.
Her brief smiles, short; not sweet.
"Whats your poison"
Words came in a deep southern drawl,
"Scotch; on the rocks"
She barely looked to the man behind her,
Closed her eyes and took one more drag,
Of smoke through her blood moon lips,
She teetered on the edge of seduction,
And they were lost in a pool of smoke.

just out of shadows
behind the flares
painting my vision
pulsating off the white sheets of day
slowly like a ghost your wind your way up my spine
wolf teeth grinding on my bones
sand paper in my ear
you grab my arm
pin wheel through the fog
but your gone again
through the thicket
cavernous starvation thickening my saliva with the taste of your skin
hearts echoing through my brain
and were back again
hard ground to my back and your hands in my hair
predator eating the carcass of its prey
maggots swarm my vision
smearing it with red
scratches pulling skin form skin
i don't care anymore
taken hand on wrist
back to the edge of
my teeth sliding out form behind my lips
your freckled skin between my fingers
i don't know what we are anymore.

And flew beyond the limits of my imagination,
She spun at speeds high enough to burn,
Patches of black into the jeweled floor.
She spoke with a lullaby, soft and sweet,
Almost as soft as her satin skin,
That brushed against me,
When she lost her sense of direction,
And fell into me, leaving me unsure,
Of where to move my hands,
Of how to hold her,
Without crushing her delicate bird bones,
For she looked so easy to snap,
So breakable, so lost.
So perfect, to me.
And all too soon, she'd compose herself
And fly away across the meadows,
Her honey eyes warm, her smile light,
Her laugh... Echoing in my ears,
Leaving them ringing,
long after she returned to the skies.

With baby's breath and rose buds,
Weaved into wild chestnut curls,
That fell into bright watching eyes.
She spoke of pixies and sprites,
That left a haunted glaze on her smile,
And a faraway look in her absinthe eyes.
Though, the stories never really finished-
One morning, when dew laden grass
Sparkling like crystals,
Caused light to dance among the trees.
I finally opened my eyes to what she saw.
Though perhaps not what I expected,
A young man, with smoky skin,
Kissed my hand and drew me in to dance.
I lived in Somer Wood that year,
Becoming more like my dear Evangeline,
Who wore baby's breath and rose buds,
On her death bed, where the light shines brightest
In the midst of the dark, her lifeblood slowly drained,
By the dances, the necromancing, the lovers and lies.
My sweet Evangeline,
Your lilac skin awaits me,
With a greed, like our own.

My mum used to tell us stories;
When we sat around the camp fire,
And lost ourselves in the flames.
There was one story, that stuck with me,
And haunted my dreams,
So late at night, I'd hear
The cackling of the traveller woman,
Who graced my bedtimes.
Night after night.
She had a toothy smile,
That was smeared in red,
And the weathered skin
Of a woman traveled well;
Who came to rest, by the fire,
Late at night and cackled as she
Flirted with the stars, and
Kissed the moonlight.
Beads adorned her neck,
And twinkled, vermillion, gold,
And occasionally a vivid green,
That matched her mossy eyes and the
Scarves that hung from her waist,
Around her neck, and trailed
Behind her, as she drifted from
Dirt track to grass, Bright
Shadows cast as she walked
Her well worn path.
She had a caravan, a serene,
Light hitting the tips of the
Leaves green, with lilac shawl
Curtains, that swayed as she pushed on,
Along the road, as she smiled at the
Slowly setting skies.
Hunter Killer Part OneHumans advanced quickly using technology, constantly making breakthroughs. They had made Angels almost 100 years ago now; they had wanted to make them as weapons creatures to take over the other inhabited planets that had been discovered. The angels were perfect in appearance, named for their likeness to God's angel's described in the bible, a book almost forgotten.Hunter Killer Part One2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
They were stood at an average of 6 foot, stronger and faster than humans, with massive bird wings allowing them flight, they held the ability to harness energy around them and convert it into destructive balls of light. But most of all they could travel in space at breathtaking speed giving them the power to lay siege to other planets.
However they could also breed among each other allowing their numbers to grow freely. That was the human's first mistake.
The second had been their attempts to control them, when those with young children had refused to leave their babies in order to do as they were told the children were use
CassandraA few years ago I met a girl by the name of Sally,Cassandra2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She was sweet and young and silly, and never knew when to shut up,
She giggled at the most inappropriate moments, and had a glint in her eyes,
watching the world pass in front of her, she was ready to grab it,
With both hands, her teeth, everything she could,
Because she knew somewhere out there was something better than this,
At the age of ten they changed her name from Cassandra,
To Sally, they said that it'd help with the memories,
With her difficulty in hearing her own name,
They thought it for the best, And Sally was the name
Of her favourite childhood toy, a little bear,
Mocha brown, with black button eyes, she'd sewn on herself.
When she turned eight, the police came knocking,
Her next door neighbour had heard the screams,
There were strange voices and odd sounds,
And Cassandra didn't like it,
She burst into tears under the musty bed,
And grasped her bear to her chest.
Back when she was five she found her mummy crying,

Storm clouds gathered and the rain began to pour from the sky as if Heaven itself was in mourning which it probably was. Tossing his head back, tears hiding among the raindrops Castiel screamed his ochre eyes awash with pain.
"He was all I had! You took the first shred of happiness I had from me! I don't deserve this! And he didn't deserve this!"
Castiel screamed until his throat was raw and he sunk forwards his face pressed to the ground. Sobs wracked his body as he shook his head, moaning in agony. He'd held it together as he sat at his deat

Perhaps you have heard of me too. My name is Raphael, Angel of Healing.
Now here is my problem, I have loved Michael since I was young. I have always looked up to him, as we must all admit he has done more for Heaven than any other angel. As I matured though I realised just how deep my feelings ran for him but at the same time I realised just how impossible it was.
You see I mean it when I say Michael is the most loyal, his faith and our ways come before anything else, he's even too blind to see how much I care for him. I've attempted to tell him on a few occasions but it has never gone according to plan.
Then I found out he was getting married...

Two hours later it seemed things had calmed down. Remiel had taken Lucifer far across the city to a house that it seemed that blonde demon now know as Vesper lived in. They had been watching a breaking news report on the fight since they arrived.
The fight had gotten very bad, almost completely destroying Gabriel's house and a large area around it. It had been almost impossible to tell how much damage each one was taking however as it was impossible to see anymore than a vague outline through the intense glow Michael and Gabriel were admitting. It had seemed as if the fight could have gone on forever, mostly due to Gabriel's acrobatic skills in the air which allowed him to avoid Michaels much stronger blasts. That was until Raphael rejoined the right and hit Gabriel's from behind sending him plummeting to the ground, from which he was carried off by a resigned looking Michael.

CHAPTER 3: Savior of Worlds
Only few hours had gone by yet I was already worn out from repairing my ship. I lay on the couch in the forward lounge, just staring at the strange planet I'd found myself in orbit around. An empty doughnut box was on my lap, the very last of the pastries were dissolving in my stomach. They were good, but not even the Liddell family's famous baking could cheer me up. Things were bad, really bad. Not long after I'd arrived I started reviewing the navigation logs. After a little persuading and adjustments to the near-fried system, it calculated my current position within the Small Magellanic Cloud, and irregular dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way. The trip home would be problematic, I was about 197,000 lightyears from Sol. Even with the Yellow Brick Road's Phase Drive back up and running at maximum output, it'd take me at least a couple centuries to get back.
All the numbers, figures and calculations pointed to one harsh conclusion...
I was totally screwed.
