First to Fall Well it’s that time again, as the outside temperature gets colder and I can stand to be here no longer. I know the onslaught that devastates my kind is coming soon enough and I can’t afford to be late for my demise. Ironically, it is my turn to usher in this new era of death and decay alone. I will be the first to fall.First to Fall3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
My family eagerly awaits my fall as I look around at all of them. We’re all identical to some degree, I feel. Sure, everyone around these parts are just inbred copies of each other, we all look alike in some aspects, but I guess that’s just genetics. I look around as my flesh starts to lose it’s lustrous color, fading into a dingy, dirty yellowish color. Is this what dying really felt like? I see my brothers and sisters around me, bits and parts of their bodies were already undergoing this change, but I guess I’m the unfortunate one to be the first one to have this co

Reluctantly creeping back to my room
Waking to promises of the perfect day
"Just one more kiss" was all I could say
I lay there in silence, inhaling your scent
The landlords were coming, so away you went
Those days spent living a lucid dream
Launched my new life, how different it seemed
Lying in bed, wishing to stay
The plane ride home: I cried the whole way.
Your scent on my skin lingered a while
I spent that whole day forcing a smile
Sadness and joy made my tears flow
As I gazed at the ocean, so far below
Your endless blue eyes can take me away
In just a few years, forever we'll stay
Locked in perpetual love till the end
Till the laws of society finally bend
For now we're locked in our separate cells
Temporarily living our personal hells
As I lay here in silence, I remember your scent
Still here it lingers, long after I went.
I'll love you forever, and so it shall be.
And I'll remember your face till it's all that I see.
The Day Before Judgement Night The day of salvation has begun, sadly. The hours of Judgement day were starting soon, and I had little time to see my love, Sibyl. I ran through the black forest, a maze of black bark, black leaves, black branches, and blacker earth not towards the land of salvation, but moreover the land of damnation.The Day Before Judgement Night3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Blood-moon castle was a jail, but not just a jail for criminals and thieves, but a prison of the damned and the final resting place for the forsaken: a holding-cell for those poor souls that are possessed by the devil's minions, or those who renounced their salvation; many called it the house of heretics, but this demonic house held what was closest to me. I arrived at a clearing, a wet, muddy field where the evils can be felt in the ground beneath me; a place where the faint scent of rain-water is the only peace one feels as the sounds of pain and suffering crowd the air like an orchestra of
Thin LinesHave you ever wondered,Thin Lines5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
or even pondered,
What it's like to cross the line?
That thin white line?
Between body and mind?
Between space and time?
Between death and life?
Between peace and strife?
Ever considered crossing that line?
Such a thin line,
Between right and wrong?
Between noise and a song?
Between love and hate?
Between chance and fate?
Walking from white to black,
Or even considering to cross back?
Ever wanted to see
From prose to poetry?
From dream to reality?
From darkness to light?
From suffering to delight?
From joy to sorrow?
From today to tomorrow?
Have you ever wondered,
Has the thought ever thundered,
As to where these lines are?
Where they stretch, and how far?
They lay as you say!
Define it! Chaos and dismay!
Perception is yours to command,
Take this thought, and expand.

And they are here to test us
I know You put burden on us sometimes
Burden enough that we could carry
But dear GOD we are too weak
To withstand these miseries

Who are going through worse than us

And I am pleading to You
Ease away our pain
Turn our miseries into blessings
We are all aware
That you love Your creations
We humans are Your most beautiful creation
I know You will never turn down our prayers
You never did

His arms enveloped me as I inched closer to him. A warm pair of lips pressed against mine as a hand trailed up my back. A familiar aroma fills my nostrils as our lips moved as one. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I begin wonder who it was I had been kissing. His hands trailed back down as he leaned in closer for a deeper kiss. My back presses against a hard cover, causing me to desperately try to open my eyes. Suddenly his lips were lost to me. He had pulled back, stroking my hair. I could feel his hot breath on my neck as he sung silently in my ear. My eyes cracked only slightly to reveal to me black hair.
I suddenly awoke to the warm comfort of Ronan's arms. Had I dozed off with Ronan by the tree? A cool breeze sent chills down my spine, causing me to scoot closer to Ronan's chest. Just then, I had realized we still had a mission to do. I carefully removed Ronan's arms from around my waist and shoulders, getting up on my knees to awaken him.

The struggle to suppress
These seconds of duress
Along with these moments
Longing for lost enchantments
Wishing to forget
To get lost in the net
Then this tale could fade
Slip into a dark shade
Giving us another chance
Another try at our dance
If memory was merciful
We would simply forget
And if time was remorseful
Regret and hope could offset
We could get lost in the glory
We could live another story
Without painful memory

Love, when you're fifteenLove, when you're fifteen8 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
We crushed ourselves together, as one, and not for the first time. We imagined and believed ourselves to be in love as much as fifteen-year-olds do, and thought that love in our hearts meant that we needed to consummate it with our bodies. So we were in my bed, pressed together, in love, in lust, happy to be alive and together.
Love, when you're fifteen, means he carries your books and sits next to you at lunch. You think you know everything and no one can prove you otherwise. Love, when you're fifteen, means he calls you when you're babysitting and that you understand when his mother makes him go to church on a Friday night. It means you forgive him when he gives a "pity kiss" to the other girl who likes him, even though you know better. Love, when you're fifteen, means going all the way.
So we did, and the first time it hurt. But after that it was fun, and we did it as often as we could get away from our parents. And I loved him, really I did, but in the back of my head I knew we wer

I still lend you my strength
Even when my eyes are their darkest

Someone has to bear the light

All my deeds are of the same kind
I need not your thanks
No relief can fill this void in my life
No rest for the wicked / No love for the abandoned
No hope for the innocent / No pain for the departed
I'll give you my all / I'll rise while I fall
I'll answer your call / I'll serve until there's no pulse
I'm not looking for acknowledgment
Remember not my face
I don't consider labels an accomplishment
Forget to speak of my name
I will leave none a victim of relinquishment
You will not witness that pain
I'm merely here to cure the inhumane infections
For we are all one in the same

I will come to turn the tides
Even when I'm left powerless

There are far too many strangers
In this drunk mess of a crowd
Anywhere I look
There is some strange guy giving strange looks
And my head is spinning round
As if it's nowhere to be found

Drinking pints of foul tasting beer
Because we need this to have fun
Because right now we have no fear
So drink away the worries
And don't care about the money
Get it down, we're in a hurry
To lose control
We're far too intoxicated
To care what they think
So let's talk a bit more loudly
And go buy another drink
We say it's only for tonight
But we know that's a lie

Puking up her dignity
And the guy that everyone likes
All these people aren't so pretty
When the alcohol kicks in
So why do we let this happen?
What a strange world we live in
