Heaven Is Not a DemocracyHeaven Is Not a Democracy2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It has been said that there are two forces governing over this universe: those of "good" and those of "evil". Both are necessarily in direct opposition to one another, yet this is not to say that one is absolutely right and the other absolutely wrong. Thus great care should be taken, when examining both sides of ANY tale for the forces of "good" have often been known to blind the eye far worse than the lulling comforts of the darkness ever could.
High above the physical planes of Earth, amidst the brightest of stars, exists a celestial dome called Heaven which houses legions of Archangels and is permanent sanctuary for the self proclaimed deity Jehovah. In foundation the dome is sustained only by the softest, most divine array of primarily feathery white clouds which change color sporadically. For its walls there grew miraculously spectacular twisting vines of ivy that interwove lotus flowers that were adorned in periwinkle and lavender. Brilliant globes of light illuminated down from

Lying in bed. The sheets kicked off. The darkness broken suddenly by the vivid strobe of light. It fills the room with the charged energy of anticipation. The fan whirs its hypnotic rhythm. Counting; "one-one hundred, two-one hundred, three-one hundred " waiting. Waiting for that sound to slice open the entire fabric of the sky. Thunder approaches with smells of memories drenched in childhood, forgotten tears, silent squeals of innocent excitement. Senses saturated as the rain begins to fall. Eyelids heavy. A lullaby of rain on a tin roof. A sleep of all that heaven must be.

I have you
I hold you
No need to
Ever let go
You love me
As much as
I love you
Nothing else matters
Nothing else really
Needs to matter
Not when you
Are with me
But that's only
in my dreams...

Luxurious colours lick earth's bare skin,
Her majestic radiance flourishes,
A finger's touch breathes life upon us kin,
While fair divine complexion nourishes,
Furious machines tear life to its doom,
As our future in everlasting fate,
Syn woven in life by destiny's loom,
Then eternal possession lands the wait,
Wishing by metamorphosis as aim,
Fiery complaints wash innocent sight,
Shadows lift while glowing truth becomes tame,
Quivering thoughts emerge; taking free flight,
Convey: images, power we can find,
When more novel lives begin to hatch blind.

You are the cause of my wrath
The cause that blazed through my path
My life I have sat in the cold
Just waiting to be told
The binding curse fills me
I scream in my soul with agony
To me you are a little tease
You look at me all pleased
I shall haunt you with my fury
I shall rip your flesh apart
I shall prove your lies to the jury
I shall tear your heart at last
My eyes are what has become
Bleeding with what I have sung
The tip of my tongue licks my lips
My bubbling blood starts to stick
As my teeth sink in flames
I wonder who is to blame
I walk I glide I run
Looking around to see the fun
I laugh at the sky
Though I do not know why
Red, orange, yellow and blue
Cripple the leaves under the winter hue
Everything starts to burn black
Everything starts to crumple
Everything starts to bleed
As I point my finger at you
I smile and whisper a word or two
My eyes are filled with one emotion
Now I really wonder what is all the commotion.

Oh toi rose de chair qu'on assassine!
Oh rose tendre en pétales de chair
À frémir sous cette pluie à te plaire!
Oh rose adolescence à se complaire
En cette évanescence de l'étale!
Oh rose en déchirure des pétales
À gémir de tant d'ennuie dans le jour!
Oh rose adoré depuis ces toujours
Dessous la rosée qui perle et qui pleure!
Oh rose en ces flétrissures qui te meurent
À dormir sans plus de bruit qu'une fée!
Oh rose, dans la vent, ébouriffée,
Ne vois-tu pas ce temps qui t'assassine?

Petite rose au jardin.
Petite rose au jardin, ton temps déjà compté,
Ta tête sur ton cou, quand ta tige chancelle,
En cet ultime chant du bruissement de tes ailes :
Métronome arrêté de ton temps écourté.
Oh Rose juste née! Quel feu déjà te brûle,
Petit bourgeon éclos au jardin des partout?
Tes beaux et longs cheveux, et puis, plus rien du tout ,
Com' dans la nuit soudain, un klaxon qui te hurle!
La chimie t'étourdit, et vacille ton ciel
Où n'a plus ses couleurs, tout là-haut, l'arc-en-ciel ;
Au jardin, au jardin, tant de beautés se meurent!
Quand il pleut le malheur, les petit' roses pleurent
Dans ce sombre pays de froide Leucémie,
Là, où la vie, hélas, n'est plus du tout amie!

motionless as the world goes by.
Under the sparkling sky we are,
stars and planets oh so far.
Let's just eternally stay here,
where time stops with you, dear.
We'll hold hands and stargaze,
while I start to just daze.
Let's just lay here, as you hold me so tight,
as we sleep during the starry night.
No words between us said,
thoughts of you fill my head.
Let's forget the world and stay,
I'll cherish each blissful day.
Just enjoy each moment together,
oh if only it was like this forever.

Love me, want me
Kiss my soul
Hold my heart
Make me whole
Show me life from
A different view
Tell me secrets
Let me know you
Open yourself to
My sweet embrace
Trust me to love you
Pace by pace
Closer we grow
The rhythm of our hearts
Beat in time
Even when apart
It has become so easy
This love we share
You are in me, as I am in you
A unique loving pair
Calling HomeI close my eyes to all the filth,Calling Home1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to speak but there are no words
Empty silence flows so smoothly,
Down my throat until I choke...
Just a blank, empty screen
Where all of my worst fears
Are brought to life...
And there is nothing,
But a dull, empty void
Where nothing grows
Except the endless, lifeless abyss...
Which I call home.

Ten thousand corpses follow me
Everywhere I'll ever go...
Tender to touch, but cold to the hand...
Glimpses into a forgotten land...
Dark as pitch and black as night,
As I am pulled
Ever farther from the light...
All I can think of
Is how great it feels
To give in to the nothingness...
Feels like floating on waves of dreams,
Anger melts into sorrow;
It all falls to dust...
And there's no more tomorrow.
I was there too...Once upon a time. I was carefree, I was enthusiastic, I was joyed by the simplicity of a ladybug, choosing to ride on my arm. And the cool wind, choosing to flow through my hair.I was there too...1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Once upon a time. I was abused, and beaten, thrown to the ground by a group of kids who's only joy was to find me everyday, find me and dehumanize me. I was hurt by the complex emotion of helplessness and anger.
Once upon a time. I was starved, hungered and weak by the lack of food on the kitchen table. I was upset by the sound of my mother's cries in her bedroom, stressed and hurt for not being able to support her children, angered by the men who chose to leave her there alone.
Once upon a time. I loved someone, someone who I thought would be there forever for me, die by my side, and be with me through all the twists and turns in the long road. I was enraged by the sight of them with another, telling me that I was nothing to them, that they never met me.

;: Love is not simply a heart :;
Love is much, much far apart from a heart,
It is complicated, but it runs in between all of your vains,
Like the drips, and drops of rain, the time may come, with some pain,
But he isn't worth it.. I hope..
Pitters, padders, Drips, drops,
"Give up your heart; it's left broken.
And let that mistake pass on;
'Cause the love, that you've lost,
Wasn't worth, what it cost. And in time, you'll be glad it's gone.."
"It's the worst kind of pain I've known.."
A long blinding end is always to come, the worst pain,
In the world, but you'll soon be finding a new twirl.

her wrist is her interment,
