She remained silent, expressionless, her face might have belonged to either a sleeping child or a corpse. However, inside, her head was whirring:
I live life by living. I'm sociable to people, and a select few of those I love. In the day time I go outside and breathe, because the air is fresh and clean. In the night I dream of places I've never been, of bright eyes and city lights. Sometimes when the world gets too big for my head to contain I write it all down, and live on paper. I exhale words onto the page and watch them form their own life and message. In answer to your question, voice, I live life by living.
The voice snorted, "That's not living! Why aren't you out partying every night? Why do you always wear sunglasses? What are you hiding?"
And, as before, she remained silent. Her mind, on the

Steal away the softness from my eyes.
I want your fingerprints on my thighs,
The rainbows you leave there
When I taste your blood on my lips.
Make me beg.
Feed me the emptiness I crave,
Please- kiss me with your teeth.
Fill my head with your throat-sounds,
To chase away the void.
I cannot stand your gentle hands.
They stroke so tenderly,
And though I ache for you
To score with pointed fingertips
The smooth skin of my hips,
You do not.
Bruise away my bitter deeds
Like I long of you.
Rid me of damned innocence,
Flay me with my longing
My raspy yes is barbed within my throat.
Red welts on ivory skin,
Black oceans of bliss
Your name, carved deep enough to scar.
These things I want-
For you to make me nothing,
Free me from myself,
Blind me so that I may see you,
Choke me so that I may breathe.

Magic FluteMagic Flute2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The moment I felt Death courting you
my rib cage collapsed. I curled
into childhood: the strange little girl
always alone, talking to herself
on the playground, thinking she
was whispered a safe solitude
of hush-holy clouds, relieved
to slip away from mating rituals
unnoticed; a detached solitude
seeing only in shades of rock
beneath a surface any touch
or even death couldn't reach.
Listen: Love is the beginning of Truth
you were the first coup de foudre
I climbed and the last amour
out of this place. Wherever
the courtship carried you,
if ever a marriage or honeymoon,
I renounce this waiting of hope;
this solitude of celibate womb;
this misguided Magic Flute -
just to see Love embracing you
before finally surrendering
to my own destined course.
This I promise the Universe.

Jeff the Killer Romance Fanfiction Chapter 13It was the next day and I was sitting in the living room watching TV with Masky and Hoodie. I remembered last night with a smile. I had run all the way home after my kill, with new-found energy; Jeff behind me panting slightly and struggling to stay at my heel. When Jeff and I walked into the house we were greeted with cheers and millions of questions asking how it went, did I run into any trouble, did I have fun, etc. I told the story of my experiences to everyone with breathless enthusiasm, and my friends remained supportive and happy for me all throughout it. I tiredly left the room to take a shower and go to bed with a chorus of "congratulations" following me out the door.Jeff the Killer Romance Fanfiction Chapter 132 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
What surprised me the most was the fact that as soon as I got up the next afternoon (I hadn't went to sleep until about 5:30 AM) I felt ready to kill again. Like my lack of energy was due to the fact that I needed to see and smell blood; needed to hear the screams that meant another life gone at my hands. T

I sat in a nearby tree, my grin even wider than usual, just watching the two of them converse. I couldn’t BELIEVE Slendy was so agreeable to my love for a mortal. In fact, he was even willing to talk to her on my behalf! I had to admit, the guy could be cool at times. I really had to give Meg points for not panicking when Slendy first approached her. Yes, she did seem rather shocked, but who wouldn’t? Besides, when it came right down to it, she didn’t even run! That’s something I’d always found admirable about her; she always seemed so calm, cool, and collected. And she was going to be mine before she knew it! I giggled at the thought, and then set off to get a kill in before Slendy finished talking to her. Might as well be freshly sane (as sane as I could get) for the news!

The happy, carefree feeling that I hadn’t felt in years was so quickly diminished as I stood alone at the edge of the woods by the school. Someone had just tried to hurt Meg. MY Meg. This worried me as I began to realize what kind of danger she really was in. She could barely defend herself against a pathetic human like Marquise, and there would surely be much darker, more powerful things after her if I didn’t better protect her. I’d have to do something about her current living situation. She needed to be with me 24-7. As for that pathetic excuse for a man, Marquise… oh, it would be so easy to stalk that loser as he walked home, bloodied and mangled, his wounds dripping with the red gooey goodness… weakening him… oh, I could smell it from here. It would be all too simple; a drawn-out, painful death, of course, as punishment for hurting her… I snapped myself out of it, with some difficulty. Would that be what she wanted: his bl
Moonward MothAnd so the lonely moth foregoes its solace by the cloudsMoonward Moth4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To seek your foreign majesty above each human need.
It fails and falls but higher still it forges 'gainst the breeze;
Too strong its wings are powered by a blind uncertainty.
For love unknown, for light unseen, the moth is pushed before
Its ancient drive runs dry with bitter hopes of yesterday;
Whence time forgave us not for being both this way, it swears
That one day soon or never shall it touch your angel face.
And on it flies, your patient glow -- unwavering -- its guide;
No constant pain, dear moon, suffices to give up this dream.
Pervading rhythmic time, the moth shall taste eternity
As life peels off one scab, then next, and destiny redeems.

Abruptly the horizon disappears.
The concrete is soft and welcomes us.

Get dressed, oh, and try to dress in dark clothes." I rolled my eyes; I hoped he wasn't going to be this annoying and instructional all night. After I was dressed in a black sweater with a short black skirt, leggings, and black boots, I put a black beanie on and headed out the bedroom door to the living room. Surprisingly, most all of the residents besides Sally were still awake; I guess I was the only one who slept in the odd hours of the morning.

I hesitantly took his outstretched hand and he led me to the edge of the dance floor. As I looked at him, I couldn’t help sensing… something. Like I knew the guy from somewhere but just couldn’t put my finger on where. He put my arms around his neck then placed his hands on my waist. I blushed, secretly enjoying the warmth and immediate comfort I felt from his hands protectively holding me. I wasn’t sure why I felt this way, so comfortable, at ease, and protected, but it was a nice feeling. As we started to sway to the music, I couldn’t help but stare into his shockingly gorgeous blue eyes, which were in such stark contrast with his black hair. This guy was… quite handsome.

the sun wanted no setting,
And heat waved down in constant time
For mortals through with waiting.
Why heat should choke and burn and kill
Evades the dire, misshapen hearts;
Much better this, a glitch too real,
Than questions razing worlds apart.
Such thoughts forbidden wind around
Her print and place where life once lay,
Where rivers lush run dry for now
And ebbs with waste of dreams ashamed.
And questions come as always here:
Will Sun return with perfect heat
So to be cursed by scores of pain
For masking her heart's lost beat?
