Cave FishCave Fish14 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Once I swam, weightless,
In a red-gold sea both vast and small
A sightless cave fish tethered
Light and dark, both were warmth to me.
Once I swam, kicked, spasmed,
A sound like waves, two heartbeats colliding,
And then an inexorable tide pulled me under,
Drew me out, and I began to scream.
My tether cut, my memories poured out
I forgot in the fear of being cold and alone
For the first time.
I forgot and breathed and slept and dreamed,
A translucent veined cavernous sky,
Of liquid breath and lost gravity,
Lost every morning as I woke.
Until one day as I opened my eyes
Morning sun washed the walls of my room,
And I lay there curled around a secret cavern
A Capricorn's dream carried in water.
A tiny earthquake, and blood poured out,
A long slow agonizing geyser, warm and dark,
A first and last time.
I woke and touched my skin, and cried,
The cave fish is gone.
The sunless sea is empty.

you will return to me
in due time;
without failyou will return
and my hesitant heart
(retreating, retreating, retreating)
will be a far-off beacon at dusk
to your false ardor, a poetry of obdurate conceit
whose interval seems unceasing;
All darkness and brooding winds
You twine and spin in savage dance

But failing, failing failing
while this distance increases (curing
the suffering amid our pleading eyes (yours
of forgiveness, mine for freedom)

In a year long ago, a monster was created.
This was no mistake, although many people thought it was a grand impossibility to create a monster of this caliber. In fact, many of the people who knew the man who made it still doubted its existence, before he unleashed it on the world.
The maniac's name was Clay Hart. A common sight in the kingdom, he was an unemployed scientist to the king. After a massive scandal in the King's upper court, most of his employees were fired. But that is another story for a different time.
What Mr. Hart did after he was dismissed is what we shall talk about now. Disgruntled that he was fired so suddenly as he had no part in the goings-on of the higher-ups, he applied himself to creating his monster.
Finally after much preparation, Mr. Hart was ready to create a new being. A book bound by ancient runes and such laid in front of him on an altar of stone, Hart himself clad in a robe dyed as black as midnight, flecked with droplets of something that loo
Enuo into Exdeath TheoryEnuo into Exdeath Theory7 years ago in Historical More Like This
Too far for any mortal to comprehend, the Great Forest of Moore, a magical and sentient forest of unknown wonders, had been home to many sealed evils. When humans of the world would defeat and seal the wretched monsters within the trees in the forest, they would forget about them and peacefully lead their lives, blissfully unaware of any disastrous outcome.
However, terror had not even shown its face in that time of invisible darkness.
For many years now, an incredibly evil and powerful sorcerer king named Enuo ruled the world with an iron fist. He, of course, had achieved eternal life through some unknown force unseen by the people of that world. It was well known that even through eternal life this unstoppable being had not given up his quest for even more power.
Shortly before his ultimate demise, his search had ended.

"Juvia can not. Juvia doesn't believe her heard could take rejection." She replied shaking her head vigorously.
"So what do you plan on doing?" Cana asked bluntly. "Just stalking him till he confesses to you? Or gets another girlfriend?" Juvia just stared down at the table.
"Juvia I know you think very highly of Gray so don't take this the wrong way. But have you thought that maybe Gray is as dense as Natsu?" Levi added in. "He might not realize you follow him like that cause you like him." Juvia shook her head roughly again.
"Juvia, you don't know he'll say no." Mira chirped in. "He could surprise you and say yes."

Four couches were set up around a table in a lavish room, each a seat for an incredibly strong mage. This room in the Phantom Lord guild building was the private room of the guild's crown jewels: Element 4.
A fireplace blazed in the south wall of the room, in front of which, Totomaru was sitting on a red couch, leaning over the table. He peered at a map of a city called Magnolia.
Aria, who sat on a green couch across the table from Totomaru slouched, his arms spread across the back of the couch and asked, "How's it look, Toto?"
"Good," the fire mage smiled. "Very good. Their guild building is right on the shoreline, so it'll be easy to get Gajeel in and out without having to make a scene through the entire town."
Aria nodded. "Yes, I think Jose's plan will go over very well. All we have to do is map out where the target will be and how to best execute the capture. Juvia, Sol, you two will be the ones to collect the target."
Sol sprang up from the brown couch on the east side of the tab

He currently didnt feel like he needed to train in the techniques Orochimaru was willing to teach himhe knew them by heart, and still by far his own borrowed Chidori techniques were better. After all, hed managed to defeat a Jounin, a member of the ANBU root division, and his two friends who were at least Chuunin level, but he doubted it was really that low.
Instead of the new techniques hed been taught by his master, he found himself going over old jutsu that he should have already mastered, seeming to find them more difficult than he ever had as a child. Was it his new strength, or the memories attached

Darkness…that was all he could see, and yet it was a blessing that Knuckles was even conscious. The echidna felt a dull numbness throughout his body, and he could still feel pain in his chest and head, though less intense than it once was. Slowly…his memories of that day returned to him, and he remembered having a depressed feeling…one so powerful that not even he could escape it. He fell victim to his own weariness…a weariness of the reality that was his life of isolation on Angel Island…a life with seemingly only one purpose: To guard the Master Emerald. All he could remember at this point of a severe feeling of hopelessness and despair. Yet that all faded from his memory when Amy returned to him. As he lay injured and jaded in Amy's arms, he recalled rediscovering his will t

Fur of gold to pet and rub,
Perfect cat for me to love,
Razor claws and pointed teeth,
All the better made to keep,
A quick brush along silky fur,
Rewarded with a rumbling purr,
Given a glancing nuzzled kiss,
He is mine and I am his.

You saw her once, twice eating petals off the roses in your garden. Youve forgotten how to converse with children, you cussed between the wheezing and she stared right past like you were simply a knurled twig catching the wind in its leaves.
One morning you found her; purple stockings, blush mittens and a head of sunlight curls- asleep with your cat, Ginger, in your backyard. Her face was lost in the fur and repose and she slept soundly as you cut through her curls, knife icy in your recycled paper fingers. You tied a ribbon around the hair and sewed it in to your next doll. You named her Lucy and stitched a red heart into her chest. At nighttime the beating is so loud y

Hes made up of burnt frog skin, white-red cobweb veined eyes and a collection of missing pebble teeth. Sometimes we play scrabble.
(The first time he was just a mechanical hum beneath the bowing wooden planks, he was just a faint smell of green and he was just a hot cloud of fog around my lips. Its the wind, its the wind, I breathed. Then he breathed back, heavy and loud and monster-like; AM NOT.)
He always spoke in capitals; MONSTERS ARE MUCH TOO SCARY FOR LOWER-CASED LETTERS, he informed me one night under pink covers. I shined the flashlight into his eyes until they changed colour and he bared his teeth.
He sometimes visits my dreams. The grass turns sickly where he trudges and the woodland creatures whimper and scramble in his wake. WHERES MY HUG? He holds his warm monster limbs out, palms snatching me from my happy-ever-after and grins gap-toothily. I manage a chuckle as I buckle in his embrace.
