Of Love and Lightening BugsOf Love and Lightening Bugs4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mommy, I love you so bad
she whispers, with her arms wrapped tightly around me.
her cherub face looks up into mine-
springing auburn curls
and sparkling hazel eyes.
a nose sprinkled with kisses from the sun
the biggest smile you would never want to dim
shared especially with me.
Mommy, can I catch a lightening bug and keep it forever?
her words echo into the diminishing sunset.
I turn away while the words linger for a moment and then fade away
and the lightening bugs dance on the corn tops and stalks of wheat.
She flutters at my feet, much like them
difficult to capture and impossible to contain.
So confident she is, and wistful am I,
I hate to disappoint her, but say anyway-
I'm sorry, little one. Lightening bugs can't live forever.
Windfall - Part 11A sound of hoof steps in the doorway caused the group of ponies to look up and see a tired looking Nurse Redheart, standing with Granny Smith at her side. The ancient mare was dabbing her eyes with the hem of her shawl and grinning from ear to ear. The white medical pony smiled at Applejack. "Cabbage Leaf was wondering if the Apple family would like to come in and meet their newest member."Windfall - Part 114 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The blonde earth pony drew herself up and caught her breath, tears welling in her eyes. Her voice trembled as she answered. "Why yes, I surely would, Nurse Redheart. I s-surely would."
With that she traded some quick hugs with Twilight, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash, and hurried up the steps, pausing and giving Pinkie a hug as well, and then fell into step beside Granny Smith, helping the Apple family's matriarch make her way back inside. Apple Bloom came bounding excitedly down the stairs with a towel draped over her withers, a beaming, disheveled Zecora in tow. The younger sister took up her position o

It was quiet enough in the library that Twilight could almost literally feel the cabin fever growing behind her eyes.
The winter had already set in firmly, wrapping the tree into which the library was set deep in darkness each day long before she was ready to accept it. Even as she went down the steps she could see reflections shimmering through the ice that wrapped the branches outside her windows.
Outside, the world lay still as the snow her pegasus kin had placed there coldly reflected the few lights from t
For A Genius Dying YoungFor A Genius Dying YoungFor A Genius Dying Young4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have always pointed out
That stars are brightest when they've died
And that the miracle, that we can still see their light
Is precious. A treasure.
You burn, not like a candle, not like a comet,
You burn like a star.
And when your fire ceases
Your light will still go on
Blessing all of us still under the same night sky
You will be beaming down at us even after we say goodbye.
I will take the end of you
The flutter that will close your eyes
Knowing that everything bright like you
Too quickly and too unfairly
Departs from us and
Shining, showing, growing soft
Dimming, but bright enough a torch
To Illume still the glory in the heart of you
And leave a small speck of something
Smoldering, but true
The incidental fact
That I know
You loved me too.
Blaze, young genius, burn and bedazzle
Burnish brilliance from afar
Bless us with your radiant star!
Resplendent, you will shame the moon,
And I will grieve you, genius boy

Months had past since that first night.

"How could he do this to me?!" I growled. A fire raged in front of me and within me. "How could I have been so stupid?!" Tears dripped down my face. "I'm such an idiot! God damn it!" I pounded my fist against the wall. "And to think..." My voice hoarse and thick from tears. "I was starting to trust...to fall." The words trailed off into nothing, gone and lost forever.
" 'ello mon amour I'm 'ome." A door shut, my gaze flicked up to the fire. The sickly sweet voice calling made me internally toss and turn in rage. My teeth ground together replacing the silence. "Mon cher?" I gave no answer to him. "Mon cher!" His footsteps got louder and louder as I heard him make his way to me. "Mon amour, you are bleeding."

From tiny screaming babies to speed-demon old women in wheelchairs, the place was a crowded intersection. You peered over to your friend Elizaveta, who promised she would help you hook up with your lifelong crush, the Danish Mathias Densen.

"Ugh, Mathias, not now, I don't have time for your games. I'm really swamped." You groaned at the boisterous Dane. He sat on the corner of your desk, leaning towards you. His blond hair going every which way. You wondered how he got it to stay that way.
"If you need help, I'd be happy to give it to you." he said with a wink. You couldn't help but facepalm at the young man's reply.
"Mathias, please, you're gonna get me in trouble. AGAIN. Please, just go away and let me do my work." You begged from behind your desk.

You felt as if you were on top of the world, although, you found that your boss and his co-workers were asses.
