Paradoxical, instinctual hatred.
Kill the listeners,
Beat the speakers.
Let the blood run black.
May He help you,
But only through his plagues.
Crawling below my skin,
Running through my hair,
Corpse after corpse rises.
I cannot make them fall.
Offer me your hand,
And I'll turn it gray.
Infect you with my infestation.

A wry grin and a twinkle in my eye.
If I'm a know-it-all,
Then why don't I know what I want.
A sick heart, a throbbing throat.
My subconscious has retaliated against my ego.
Lately, I've been retracing my steps,
Only to find it broken once again.
I know I shouldn't act so eager.
However, I've wanted you like nothing else.
In an empty space,
I manage to grimace.
Some say I'm a poor idealist.
I'd like to believe I'm a dreamer, a visionary.

Most of the time, I don't mind them.
They keep me company between the thrice daily nurse visits.
Not even the doctors find time for me anymore.
We sing a lot, the voices and I. I use to write red words on the white walls but they took out everything but them. It's amazing what you can do to make yourself bleed. hehe
The other day I bit the tip of my tongue off but you couldn't read the words afterwards so it was a useless gesture.
I tried to explain that when the people in blue jammed a mouth guard between my teeth but no one would listen.
Except for the voices of course, but they were too busy being distracted by able calloused hands and glimpses of creamy cleavage.
Once I gave them names but then they started talking in funny accents and giggling so hard I couldn't tell one from another.
So now it's just them.

staining the cedar floor with my goodbye note.
Passion tightens at my throat.
My cry for help echoes uselessly in the empty barn.
I choke on sweet promises and force them down with a glass of self guilt.
I'd give it all if you'd just say you love me.
I jump into the lie of needed.

die for oil on foreign soil
high an mighty sit and eat
mothers beg for a retreat
through sandstorms so high
war torn faces look to the sky
no apple pie its time to die
sun goes down children cry
swaying date palms lush
straight into an ambush
roadside bomb shattered
your body lying battered
ricochets echo in your mind
its all black but your not blind
crippled senses cracked contact lenses
shit runs down legs
only a coward begs
take me now
take your final bow
no way out of this deafening hell
shredded into laces by a shell
this is war
want some more?
takes one bullet to end a life
makes a widow of a wife
your dead in your head
thats what history said
now just bone
your name lies in stone
rest in peace on your throne
bring our troops home
It Rained on my Way HomeCold corrodes the rims of my earsIt Rained on my Way Home4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And the air smelt numb (so cold it was warm) as it
Sighed through my hair and
Bit against my leathered back
black jacket sodden.
My hair does not form
Protective insulation this time.
Rain licks my scalp
And tattoos meanders down my forehead
(wet white like silver)
With its bitten tongue.
The water is alien and vacant;
Like on TV, Like I've borrowed
Someone else's tears.
Heel click toe click is met by hollow
Thud on concrete's new
High shine mirror finish
Reflecting the yellow white glow of
The security light.
Stiff hand grip the door handle
And sniff exhale through.

Watermelon gloss trying to cover up the rottenness of deceit;
Whatever truth you hide spoiled as well.
Don't touch me.
Truth hurts for a moment but lies hurt forever.
Especially ones crushed between the inviting petals of your lips.

Fingers reaching, bodies breaking,
still we struggle to be undone.
Unreal stances of bigger chances
and little white lies of need.
I am but a heart breath away from waking.
Holding to the mind's watery image;
they fade like pixie heroin.

The moonbeams smell clean and remind me it's ok to live.
Till they burn like sun rays upon my gentle trusting skin.
Vanillas rolls over me like a smooth velvet
Amaretto and Frangelica assault my palate
The almonds and hazelnut swirl together in my glass
The leather is like a bit I want to bite.
Sweat reminds me of exertion...
I long to down the liquid but I'm already dropping fast
Denim is like comfort
Wrap me up in your pants,
To chase away the pain.
I've been walking too long in my shoes,
Let me try yours for a day.
and blood is like dishonesty.
I've wielded the blade,
your life's water
puddles at my feet,
Covering me in the warmth
of your deceit.

all my pieces on the table
neatly sorted and well labeled.
At least it's not haphazard.
Just because my flesh is iron,
and my oily blood can't congeal
does not make me no less the real.
Do not touch my parts that way.
Do not gaze with your proud contempt.
I want to hide myself from you
but my bits are all out to view.
You make me feel quite dirty.
I understand the autopsy.
It's what you've done or something near,
only to explore new frontiers.
I am not your new found toy.
I would most appreciate it
if you'd put me back together.
It does not count why or whether
you want me that way or not.
At least I had the decency
to 'deactivate' my subjects

Surrender to a time that no longer calls,
To us, No, No calls, I hear no phones ringing,
Nor birds singing,
Try to love the beginning like the end, And spend the middle with a friend,
The cow jumped over the moon, Though the hermophrodite can swoon,
Her down the tree, Where she watches me,
Like the tick tocks of a clock,
That mean nothing now,
Dare you, Dare you ask me how,
Such a sweet melody can dance, If given a proper chance,
Though it spins a princess spin,
Often times it cannot win, Your heart since you can't hear the sound,
Though it does surround, Everything within ones grasp,
Such a quiet whisper like a gasp,
Crown the clown, Even if he'd frown, at the responisibility of that, A silly hat,
That means nothing now,
So bolt me to the cross, It would be no great loss, To have loved and loved alone,
And off away my fears had flown,
To him I dedicate my ode, the one who like a river flowed,
So graciously he did draw words, Swung rou

The pieces were scattered across the floor,
oozing out and melting,
like a colored red ice which seeps into cracks of your life's tile.
Yes I know you didn't want it there.
I thought it was only later but now I doubt if you ever did.
I collected all I could but had to use anger like a wire scrub brush to get the rest out.
Sorry I split your control, but my bloody love was staining your restraining force and I had to at least try to clean it out.
After all it's what's you wanted or at least demanded of me.
Don't look at me that way.
I cleaned the ceramics and no one knows I was here once.
But you know, don't you?
Even though the external proof is gone unseen stains remain.
Though it was not my intent, I left a part of me behind. My own scars have healed and I have no desire to return to your so called life.
But I know I stained you.
No matter how much you bleach, I'll always be there.

You are the center of Our Galaxy,
And before you I am particularly mistifyed.
By your beauty,
By your power,
By your glow,
It seems it'll always be this way,
Circling around you year after year.
Why can't I move to some other place with all this "space"?
Whether you know or not,
It's impossible to just move away.
So long as you are vast,
So long as you are warm,
So long as you are near,
And I'll always look up at you saying,
What if you were too close?
Or too far away?
So yeah, Sun,
I'm gonna stay on planet Earth
While you look down at me from your Heaven.
I won't touch you again.
I won't stare at you again.
I won't come close to you again.

Checking off each line as each shot is fired.
That would be my falling, not hers.
Then there's entrapping, heartache, pain, doubt, betrayal, anger, more pain.
What she doesn't realize is that she's not my first. She won't be my last.
I've been hit before and know how to pick up (most of) the pieces.
Sure I'll leave some behind but I've got scars to fill in the blanks.
I just hope someone finds those fragments so that they'll learn.
So that they'll not be next on her already bloodied hit list.

"Mael is disappointed in Phie's descendant. You should not have come," Mael said, advancing on them. The two stepped back. Lanni drew her sword.
"You should not have come!" Lanni shouted, charging forward.
"No!" Rhis shouted.
Mael stetched out its hand and flames shot out from its tips. Lanni feigned to the left and then jumped back. The flames dissipitated and Mael was thrown back by an invicible shockwave. It hit the wall, breaking the bricks and falling out of sight.
Baku-sama appeared beside Lanni. Apparently, he was able to become invisible too. "I thought you said you didn't want my help?"
"Yeah, but you were still following me," she got the feeling she owed him now. They broke into a run and Rhis jogged lazily after them.
"What's going on?"
"They knew you'd come and I knew that they knew so I gathered some help," Baku-sama said as they descended a flight of stairs. "B-T-W, I'm Baku-sama. You don't have to introduce yourself. I already know you."

Unto the further day that he cannot be re-uprised
I lay thine death upon the soul
The darkness will impenetrate the whole
Unto the mist reveals your lies
your truths, your wrongs, and you will die
With every gasp that courses through
your life will be the death of you
For you have done the greatest wrong
And now you shall not sing the heaven's song
The wings will leave you
Your soul will shrivel
Feathers will fly
blood in scarlet falls like falls
and you will never walk these halls.

One bright morning Fay had awoken, the sky was clear and flowers bloomed. Today was a special day. It was her birthday on the thirteen month of Dia'shi, second day of spring (since Ela Litheh does not snow, its on the west coast). Fay got up, smiling as she climbed out of her bed. Fay was turning 30 (twenty-one to be exact in human years) and a few years from now she would be able to find a soul mate and bare children when the time comes, but it was not the time. For now, Fay would enjoy her day and pray her birthday would be a pleasant one.
Fay walked into the bathroom, she looked at the mirror. She looked more mature and grown, at least three more iches since the past fourteen years. She picked up her hairbrush and started to think about the past events of the Seven Black Jewels and then...Dato.
She missed him, he had left and never returned to them. Even Willa told her a month ago her father couldn't find the traveler or the run away prince of the Spiral of Stars

Kye and the group: Falcon, Almalthea. Pupa, Dato, and Willa including Fay who was still knocked out, had to rest for several times because Falcon kept running and thought it would be great if she won and also because she wanted to cook once they got to their destination. Though Kye didn't want her to cook, she had many moments when she would give him raw meat and blood so Falcon wasn't a good cook. Besides, she only made her favorite dishes and not his. Kye had to check on Fay, but he didn't want to check her wound directly because Dato and Willa would stare at him and he felt embarrassed to look at Fay whenever those two stared.
They finally made it after two hours, and the woods revealed a white cottage with a brown roof. The sunlight pierced through the trees and lighted a path to the cottage. There was a stream next to it. Falcon finally regained her energy and ran ahead of the group. Willa awed at the sight, she
