I stared at the heavy steel loop around my thumb. My world was a sand castle, constructed by the subconscious in a vain hope that it would stand up on such a treacherous foundation. The ring was an unfamiliar weight and the foundation of my castle started to crumble. I did not remember it. The tide was ebbing in around my mind, whispering that my carefully imagined world was wrong. That it was lies. That the 'when' and the 'where' were pure fancy. I stirred in the nest of wires that poured information through my brain. There was a man with me, his bare back against mine. He, too, was lost.
An anchor's duty was to the pilot and the pilot alone. Not to their employer, not the guild, not even to themselves. Two.
There was an image engraved on the ring, a nautical anchor from the days when man sa
Suffocate MeI told myself I wouldnt care, Id burn the links and cut the chains.Suffocate Me4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I told myself I wouldnt swear upon a love by any other name.
An open canvas now, my life would need to paint away this sin
by seeping in and weeping out, a cut too close beneath my skin.
And for the longest time, I had you rendered.
An evil foe that I had surely slain.
But you've shown me now that you have not surrendered;
Theres an overflow of woe within my brain..
And though the words are painful, suffocate me, please..
Cus I'm not dying here for you..
And I wont get down on my knees..
I told myself you were the worst mistake, and that I should have known........
I told myself you were the humble hatred in my world alone.
then I saw your new love, heard you'd moved on, and I was cold..
Poisoned honey in the ears of someone too scared to admit that it was so.
And while you broke my body, I just let you.
Because the crown of guilt weighs so much more.
Though I told myself I wouldnt forget you,
You gave no seco
Tiptoe RiverDo you remember days spent sunning on the banks of Tiptoe River? The sun reddened our skin the color of my cherry popsicle. You thought I didn't see the way you watched it dribble down my jaw. I'd spent far too long looking at your eyes to not know the feel of their stare when they gazed upon me.You held a grey May sky in each almond orb. Each time I looked in them I knew you were seeing the same image of me that you always did; a diminutive, pale girl crossing her arms over her chest to cover her breasts that were visible through the wet white cloth of her shirt as she stood soaking on your front porch silently begging you with earth-quake heartbeats to love her too.Tiptoe River3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Do you remember the day we played hooky on the banks of Tiptoe River? We laid down near the waters edge and turned our heads to our sides but for miles around not another soul could be seen, and the forest hid us from the high way. Then I turned my head back up to look at the sunny September sky and I felt your gaze on me

Her presense, that of an Angel. Her voice, a guiding light.
In everything she does she would try her best. Never giving up and hardworking.
Virtue above all else, supportive to the end. Understanding and forgiving.
Vivid and outstanding, she is exceptional in every way.
Youthful for eternity, Neither her grace or her charm will ever fade.

Your HeartI took your heartYour Heart4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Out of the freezer
I put your heart
In a canning jar
Hoping to make it sweeter
I took your heart
Out of the bath water
I wrapped it up
In a hot towel
Hoping to make it warmer
I took your heart
Out to dinner
I placed your heart
In the seat across from me
Hoping it will see only me
I took your heart
And broke it
I put your heart in my chest
And gave you mine
Hoping to make amends

So wünschte ich mich am Firmament
Dann löste mich der sanfte Wind
Vorsichtig und behutsam auf.
Langsam schiene der buttergelbe Mond
Immer klarer durch mich hindurch
Leuchtende Sterne kämen hervor
Wie kleine glitzerne Sommersprossen.
Ich wäre nunmehr ein schwacher Nebel
Atme mich, spüre meine Nichtigkeit
Und so würde ich unsichtbar
Und unhörbar - vom Winde verweht.
Und zu einer anderen, unbekannten Zeit
An einem anderen, namenlosen Ort
Wieder von Neuem erwachen
Vollkommen - Neues wagen.
France x Joan of Arc - MemoireFrance x Joan of Arc - Memoire3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"I fight for you, and yet, I know not of your name. Pray tell, will I ever be given the chance to have the honor of learning what it would happen to be?"
Joan smiled softly, her shoulders hunching slightly as she eyed the taller blond that stood before her. Cerulean upon cerulean locked for a long moment, her softer shade contrasting greatly with the surprised, nearly wide-eyed look the ageless male shot towards her. "I take it that I'm still not worthy of such...?"
When his eyes flickered from her's, the blooming pangs of regret began to ebb at her stomach. Perhaps it was too much to ask for after all, she was nothing more than a lowly servant working under this man. This man, whom God had asked her to fight for, to serve without question, and to protect to her very last breath
The last thing she wanted was to upset him. Surely, doing so would displease her Lord.
"You already know of my name," he answered, unable to meet her gaze again. "France. Onc

two flowerings of the black-stalked
Kurinci flower beneath the moon.
Too many long nights have I walked
through the Hill Country's sweet thunders
the rain tears the earth asunder,
the dusted Kuyil soars higher;
bamboo ploughs the earth like gunfire.
Nightmare.Hey..I had a nightmare yesterday, wanna hear about it? Hmm...I'll tell you eitherways.Nightmare.5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Don't laugh, or cry! It may seem a bit childish, but I don't care.
There was a light...a very faint light, signaling for me to follow, it seemed urgent...
I didn't know where I was, it was pitch black,except for the light...I was scared.
I followed the light, as we moved it seemed to grow brighter, slowly and slowly...I could see
my surroundings! What a weird colour it was, but the setting was of a park, with trees and everything.
I kept on following the light, and soon after...I saw something, I started crying, I didn't want it to happen...
...I saw you......fading away, slowly..out of my grasp.
CherishHow long has it been, since I've first seen you? It felt like an eternity,Cherish5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
If this is how it ends, I'd have no regrets...so I said.
I'll remember all the memories we had, you and I...be it sad or happy, I don't want to forget.
In our little spot, with a bench and a swing...we'd always be there, under the Sun smiling.
Hey, do you remember all this? Why are you saying it's raining? It's a bright sunny day!
I understand how you feel.. through that look on your face, and I know you understand mine.
Is it raining? I'm starting to feel it too, under this grand tree we take shelter under.
I wonder if we'll stay like this, or will we lose each other? Why do I think of things like this?
But for now, it doesn't matter...for all I can think of is being with you.
If we were to seperate, we'd definately still be here...waiting for one another.(Am I right..?)
Hey, why are you so quiet?! Aren't you the one that usually talks alot?
Are you troubled..? Don't worry, I'll be there for you, don't tilt you
Have You Ever FeltHave You Ever Felt2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Have you ever felt alone, in a room full of people?
Have you ever felt dead, when you 're alive?
Have you ever laughed, but cried your heart out on the inside?
Have you ever felt free, But still trapped?
Have you ever felt the need, the big need to
Fake a smile, and act like it's okay?
I have, and I will do
But staying true to yourself, knowing who you are
That is the most important thing, a human can do
