Escaping the harmAlone he sitsEscaping the harm12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In his room
Quiet and still
Envisioning his doom.
He has no-one to talk to
So nothing to say
But all he wants
Is to take it away.
Alone he sits
Quietly he stands
For the usual demand.
Insanity stays as
Faster and faster
Making blood flow
Seeing new faces
Telling no lies
In this world
They welcome demise
Old pain goes as
New relief arrives.
If only he could,
If only he would
Then it will go
Her PerfumeShe bites my lip, bites her ownHer Perfume4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and there's something glorious about her
and the careless, controlled caress of her palms
I kiss the freckles, paled by maturity
beneath her autumn-eyes
and she smiles, oh God, she smiles.
I inhale the heady scent of her throat,
cigarettes and spice and that perfumed mist
she keeps in a vial of absynthe-green
beside the bed.
I wish my skin would melt
so that I could crawl into hers
and feel her pulse more clearly against my soul
I wonder how to explain this to her,
this dark-bright drowning in flames
like rough velvet
but I've lost my reason long ago
Instead, I stutter an incoherancy and she
she smiles, oh God, she smiles.
I knew she'd understand.

All the men stare and follow her lure wherever she goes
When she turns to them her perky breasts call out
Instincts take over, friends become foes before her
The men tustle to get their chance with the goddess
Standing before her gaze they see wanton eyes
Her lush lips say hello and ask their names
The men tell her all about themselves
There is little truth to the stories they tell
They must stand out above their rivals
They must taste her sex appeal
They must continue talking
They ask her nothing of herself
They feel they've seen all she has to offer
They'll never really know what's held within her body
That the heart behind her bosom is filled with love and poetry
Shifting Nights (JohnXKarkat) Chapter 12You freeze.Shifting Nights (JohnXKarkat) Chapter 123 years ago in Sketches More Like This
The words Karkat had said echo in your mind.
You can feel his hesitance, his hope in the warm lips that are pressed against yours. He presses gently, eyes closed tightly, leaving enough space as if expecting you to suddenly pull away from him.
You snap out of it when he begins to lean away. Your eyelids flutter closed. Your lips follow his, seeking to regain the warmth. Tentatively, you reach out and take his hand, twining your fingers with his.
Now it's the shapeshifter's turn to freeze. His entire body goes stiff, as if the last thing he expected would be you holding him, keeping him close.
You slowly begin to kiss back, to lean into him, his warmth. Your lips move against his and he reaches up to cup your face.
His touch is so gentle, as if you might break. It's so different from his rough personality.
Karkat pulls away slowly, but doesn't pull away, still cupping your face. You open your eyes and meet his.
The pure, raw emotion shocks you once more. But it's different t

She is my world,
She is my life
She is my sunrise,
She is my night
She is my lover,
She is my friend
Her love flows over me,
Just like the wind
She feels my sorrow,
She feels my pain
She feels the love,
That I cannot restrain
She is the power,
That gives me strength to believe
She is the one who holds me,
While I sit and grieve
She is my tomorrow,
And she is my today
And I can't help but wonder,
Just how she came my way
Maybe it was destiny,
Yes I believe it was fate
She makes me shiver,
Everytime she says my name
She holds at bay the darkness,
That threatens to consume my soul
She prys my fingers away from anger,
That I don't want to let go
She looks me in the eyes,
And tells me things I don't want to hear,
Through all this time,
She has remained so near
Because of her, I have been tossed,
Swept away on the ocean
And I could never leave her,
I can't even entertain the notion
It's how she makes me feel,
When she is so precocious
That's when I know she is real,
She is p

Entwined our lives weave

Who ever gave up on you?
My heart will never give up!
No I won't, No I won't
I will never give up on you.

Vincent stared back, in equal confusion, until Cid opened his mouth.
"What the fuck was that about?" The ex-Turk looked at him, completely unfazed by the expressions on his comrades' faces.
As if things weren't already couldn't have gotten any weirder. Everyone simply stared at him, mouths hanging open. Vincent seemed unfazed by the reactions. "Is something wrong?" He asked calmly as everyone looked at him like he was crazy.
Slowly, Tifa got to her feet. "Okay, let me get this straight: that kid is actually your son?" Vincent simply nodded.
Tifa and Yuffie looked at each other before being sent into a fit of giggles. Cloud merely stared at him in disbelief while Cid's mouth fell open. They all stared at him until Cid broke the silence again.

for you are my muse--
your eyes are my couplets,
your heart an immaculate sonnet,
your lips like redolent lyrics
of a song only your voice can sing,
your hands are jingles
that tickles my laugh niches,
your kisses are a million haikus
succinct and sweet
always an unexpected twist
in every final line,
your love is a verse sublime
a ballad on an infinite loop
eternally enduring the ravages of time
with your metres and rhymes,
our life together an ode
to everything lush and beautiful
rapturous and blissful.
Every stanza I now compose
will be a paean to our lyricism
for I long abandoned prose
when I met you--
the most fulfilling poem I never did write.

imagining the music within
tighter, looser, finding the perfect sound
that will make me sing
I feel your bow dance across me
releasing my soul
soft at first, ever so light
I'm dazzled by your touch
the need for more aches my body
and stiffens my wood
I resonate all that is you
as you fulfill my demand
you play me harder and faster
making such noise
as would make the gods jealous !
you've made me a fountain of notes
bursting in the air,
waxing and waning with your motion
I feel your every thought
as you pour yourself into me
the last note echoes for a moment longer
as you finish your song and cradle me in your arms

Be My Frost QueenBe My Frost Queen2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The soft lash of winter winds,
Exploring the air around you and whipping through,
Caressing every inch of exposed flesh,
The cold holding itself softly to you.
Your feet stop as if frozen,
Closing your eyes in the embrace,
Letting the aura of cold pass up and down your body,
You feel it getting closer to your face.
You try and fight back your smile,
But the more you feel you cannot hide,
The soothing presence of frozen snow,
Exciting as a late night sleigh ride.
Warm breath blends with cold by your ear,
Sending shivers down your spine,
Feeling the arms reach around your waist from behind,
By your stomach you watch the long slender fingers intertwine.
You dare not ruin the moment,
Sweet fuzzy feelings fill from head to toe,
His chin rests upon your shoulder,
And softly in your ear he does blow.
“Such a cold winters night,”
He said, snuggling lightly into your back,
“And you all alone in our special place,”
The light kiss to your ear; a most pleasant attack.

I knew that it was love.
Even though you are far away,
there was a connection between You and I.
For the first time in awhile,
I knew this was more then lust.
You showed me the love I needed,
and taught me how to trust someone.
You never broken my heart,
you were always sincere to me.
For the first time in a long while,
I knew there was happiness for once.
You are the love of my life,
I knew my dream finally came true.
The moment you became mine,
was the best day of my Life
In The EndThe broken baseIn The End5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Shattered memories have broken the glass
While the lost petals drown around
My heart floods the floor
The rose has died alone...
And in the end
I still love you
Will you be there?
When I need you most?
Will you embrace me...
Will you be there in the dark
When hope has faded from my eyes
When the map leads me nowhere...
The pen and paper
Lie taunting me
The letters I wrote
The envelopes never sent
However, a song lay by the side
It may be
That I still love you
Will you protect me from the pouring rain
Will you tell me it'll be ok
When everything is lost
Will you be the one to calm my broken mind?
Will you be there as light
When hope has faded from my eyes...
Will the map guide me to a safe place?
And I cant believe
It all came to an end
On a quiet night
Like the one where I stroll the deserted shores
I still remember when
We held hands
I wrote you poems and gave you a golden rose
We slept, dreamt and flew
Will we get there..
Before I forget your embrace..

let my nails leave bloody

i want to burn in your arms,
fall into your eyes,
& cast them off like clothing
until there is nothing
but your skin & mine

when there is lust in your heart.
I am the sweat caressing your brow and breasts as you look longingly upon male after male.
I am the primal thrust, the gentle kiss
rhythmic passion, and lust fulfillment.
Inhibitions are awakened, taboos broken
with each uncontrollable release of pleasure.
Say my name? No... no, there is no need
For I am Everyman... but not to every woman.
I shall leave no body part untouched
as I explore the nooks and crannies, dips and curves
of your wet, pleasure drenched temple.
I long to enter you,to be so close to you
that it becomes impossible to tell where you end and I begin.
To grind so deep that your cries of passion
permeates my very soul and sends us into an ocean of
wave after endless wave of climatic ecstasy.
And as we lay...hot, sweating, and spent.
I am the voice that asks you, "Now...what can I cook you for breakfast?"

From the same goblet as Christ.
I was promised eternal life.
And yet I'll die tomorrow
Protecting her heart.

But the ghost of a smile.]

Follows-stalks natures path
The perfection of being in love
The bliss of finding an ever white fantasy
Ever thought about me?
Your dreams I'll keep alive
Ever sang to me?
I'll entwine happiness in the seas
Within your steps mankind shall live
Keep the faith alive.

Enough to become a memory
My honest heart will heal you
The pains and sorrows will wane
I'll think of you every single day]
24 hours of life
A cold baren land brings me death
The iris of her eyes
My ever glowing warmth
And in her face I see
Perfection of a night-skies
For the life I gave up for thee.

The ghost of a memory
The faint smile in your tears
The fading ghost: Time

I want to claw sonnets on your back,

I want fingerprint-bruise-couplets

I want you stretched out and
tied to the bedposts like new paper,
clean and begging

I want to etch my love into you

I see you smile
While whispering to me
[And all begins to shine]
It isn't gold
Not silver, nor bronze
Its the melody or your song

The colors of the rainbow
Reflect vividly on you
The stars shine brighter
With your wishes too
You're the waves of my world
You're the grass and the trees
The Golden Rose of my world.
An orange-colored rose
Under a silver rain,
While the white moon shines lime-green
The sight of your perfect World.
In your peppermint dreams
I was just born yesterday
And see how scarves connect our necks
And our hearts our far-fetched dreams.

Living in peppermint dreams
Its happier with you here

Loves and Hopes
If life had an answer it'd be you.

And our dreams roam free

You pull me up to you, and hold me so closely I can feel your heart beat. I open my mouth and try to relay to you the admiration and adoration I feel, but I cannot find words that are strong enough to express the depth of my emotion. So, I simply hold you closer, and try to breathe you in. I want to inhale you, carry you inside me, feel you, taste you, experience you. Why do you shape my world, why are you in my dreams, why do I feel strange when I talk to you, as if I were naked, and you could see into the depths of my shaded soul? Tell me, what do you see?
