Ode to the ReapersThree things that weren’t men,Ode to the Reapers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lurked in the night,
Insidiously creeping forward,
And shirking the light,
They carried sickles in their hands,
And smiles upon their face,
Be killed by them and your soul,
Will be trapped within a wicked place,
Mighty men wept as they gazed,
Into those emerald eyes,
Screaming in the green fire,
Nobody could hear their cries.

Warm BloodWarm blood fallsWarm Blood2 years ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
in red rivulets,
Weeping from five wounds
to form lovely quintets,
Warm blood oozes from
holes in hues of black,
Leaking from pores,
And descending in
streams down the back,
Warm blood departs
from the veins,
That are fueled by the heart,
A strong man accepts that
the essence of his life
is soon to depart,
Clutching his sword
whilst watching the red,
The absence of warm blood
soon left him dead...

Ode to the RogueHide your jewels and shield your maidens,Ode to the Rogue2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Guard your gold and watch your wives,
Trust no man,
Who carries around lock picks and knives,
For they shall be the ones,
To plunder your hard-earned treasure,
Wear the crown,
Despite not being the true successor,
Steal the pretty girls,
Whilst disguised as a beggar,
Leeching from all,
To satiate their own pleasure,
Veiled by the night,
And protected by stormy weather,
Often acting when it is dark,
And you can hear thunder,
Rogues live to capitalize off of,
Your slightest blunder!

The White MorgueThe White Morgue2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watching, my eyes saw the swaying limbs
thin and starved by winter winds...
Dancing, like moving cracks on the window,
Through which I did stare.
Imagine, the image so morbid above as I gazed.
unnerving to the anchoring blood,
drying up within the veins of my limbs,
much like the branches that sliced the air...
The roots dug deep into my back,
and the anchored blood began to freeze...
My vessels, destroyed by glaciers,
of icy blood, that once flowed.
The travesty, of the bullet plunged into my heart,
whose beat slows, and withers and fades.
Too and so soon, the loss of my life...
Now I play the game of patience...
Ode to the GladiatorThey fight for blood,Ode to the Gladiator2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They fight for glory,
Upon fields of mud,
And inside arenas that are gory,
Built for battle they fight,
Until their last breath,
As the crowd savors,
The pungent aroma of death,
If you think that is cruel,
Then the cruel world,
Itself is to be blamed,
But I have one question,
Are you not entertained?

Mouse, Sausage, and Bird Short Story Fairy TaleOnce upon a time, in a very cold and hostile world, there lived three large rats of the race Skay Wayal deep in the jungle. Their names were Mouse, Sausage, and Bird. All three were cousins, who had inherited a cozy cottage from their late grandfather Moon. They were each unique in their own way, and they each had their own role to fill around the house.Mouse, Sausage, and Bird Short Story Fairy Tale2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Sausage was short and black and fat. His whiskers were long, his ears were small, and his nose was white. His role in life was to cook all the food for himself and his cousins- breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and all the snacks in between so that they may never starve.

Long time ago, there was a heart-warming home of a modest family of three. Before that, it was nothing more than an old abandoned house. When they moved in, the young couple restored it and planned to raise a family there. Soon enough, their son was born and the old house lit up with joy.
Their life, however, wasn't easy. Work demanded long trips for the couple. On such occasions, their son would stay under the care of his grandmother, who lived nearby. She wasn't always in best terms with the couple. Still, the boy would often stay for several days and, among many things, he loved grandma's stories of local folklore, witches, bat wing recipes and magic cauldrons. He liked it there. Nevertheless, nothing compared to mom and dad arriving to pick him up and going back home.
Unfortunately, home vanished from the boy’s life too soon when his parents died in a tragic car accident. His stay at gr

"Quit worrying my boy!" I huffed, tightening the straps. "As long as you do what I say you'll be fine. Besides," I said knocking my fists against one of his wings, "these wings will get us where we need to."
He gave a small smile. "I know, I guess I'm just a little nervous. I've never flown before," he chuckled.
I stepped back, I finishing the last strap around his wrist and smiled at my magnificent work. "You may have never flown before, but to me, you look just as though you were born to glide in the air. This is who you really are, Icarus. You we

Everyone was in school today. You could see them all cramming in the halls, some pushed up against walls... It was raining so many weren’t going outside but instead pushing up to squeeze in. You didn’t like the idea of being so close to one another, so you walked out into the pouring rain. You enjoyed getting all wet and so you skipped through it, whilst others inside looked at you like you were insane. You span around puddles, twirled against railings before noticing someone sitting alone at one of the picnic benches. You walked closer, realising it was your friend and crush Arthur. You felt the blood rushing to your face as you walked closer.
“Hey there, didn’t expect to see you out here Arthur.” You smiled. He turned to you, burning a faint pink before looking back to the floor.

I once observed Nikon chop a tree down with his bare hands,
Witnessed him tear the belly out of a ferocious whale whilst underwater,
Watched as he wrestled a female sabertooth into submission,
Watched as he tore thirty of the King’s finest men into little red pieces right in front of the throne,
And after all that was done he bit the chin off the jester.
Yes Nicolaus, I said he bit the chin off the jester.
Relinquish your sword young lad,
You won’t be able to defeat this man with steel nor strength,
In this task we shall use the golden apple.”
-----Exact words uttered by Origenes of House Haema as he and his nephew of the same House, Nicolaus, conspired to murder the famous berserker Nikon with poison. As recorded by several unobserved and anonymous court chroniclers and agents of the Matriarch.
Unaccepted (Part 1)Ambition is, essentially, a slippery slope. One may risk life and limb climbing up a steep, imposing mountain only to fall back down, or otherwise perish from the harsh, high-altitude atmosphere. On the other hand, personal satisfaction and potential fame awaits one who can succeed where others have tried and failed. Perhaps it's safe to say that, as such, those who take great risks are the ones most desperately wanting purpose and meaning.Unaccepted (Part 1)3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
For Crystal, the quest for purpose is the key tenet to her religious beliefs. According to what she has been taught, the Goddess has a plan for every living being, and every unfortunate event has a profound reason behind it. In her hometown, this is an increasingly outdated notion, and her family is one of the few remaining who hold it to be true. Even so, Crystal dearly holds on to her convictions, because they are her most vital source of hope.
After all, what else could bring light to the painfully ironic and hopeless life of an angel who can't f

LonelinessDean tightened his red-black striped tie and smoothed out his white button up shirt inside the elevator. He had almost a dozen of that same shirt at home and wore them to work every day, despite having many shirts to choose from, ranging from party shirts he had never worn to graphic tees that he lounged around in. His body looked like it was stuck in high school with his boyish face, puny frame and black hair that revealed a dark brown sheen when the sunlight hit it. He easily looked like he belonged in an office job, or playing D&D. He fit perfectly inside the role society had placed him in. Well except with D&D, he never understood the appeal of that. Dungeon Lords was more up Dean’s alley. Dungeon Lords was easier to understand and didn’t require the participants to be Lord-of-the-Geeks.
