My breath comes out short,
My vision begins to contort.
All i see is the blood around me,
As she stands above me.
That feral look of hers, electrocutes my skin.
Her tattered brain, couldn't handle being a has-been
True i stole her everything, the things that made her smile.
Maybe I wanted to be special, if only for a little while.
Yet here i lay, on my hands and knees.
A bullet in my gut, because I'm who she wants to be.
I thought i could just throw her away, like yesterdays trash.
I'd never guess she'd spring up, and become uncontrollable whiplash.
I'm in the house she's dreamt of dreaming.
I look at the tile, as my blood keeps on streaming
The man she'd die for, is happily mine.
He left her heart to cauterize, she couldn't handle it this time.
Toxic envy poisons her thought.
From all the love, friends, family, and things we bought.
She slowly pulls her hair, utterly distraught.
Why couldn't she have all these things?
Shes dying for answers, but questions ring.
She splintered, alone,
Autumn LeavesDry autumn leaves are the carpet beneath my hooves.Autumn Leaves3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Moss under a young sapling provides me with what few amount of rain drops have survived these parched last few weeks.
Stars are beginning to shine in the dim light. By this time of year there should be storm clouds filling the sky from dusk 'til dawn. But this year has been strangely quiet of thunder and scarce of rain.
I scratch my long antlers against a strong oak tree and tingle with the pleasure. The forrest has it's small comforts.
Squirrels dart up an Oak, chasing each other ever higher. They dare each other with their leaps from trunk to trunk and catch themselves on the thinest of branches. They do not comprehend the impending danger that I sense.
A twig snaps to my right. One of the does. She is exceedingly lovely in this twilight glow.
I approach her slowly and tip my head to make full emphasis of my pointed rack. She bows her head the slightest bit in response. I come up by her left side and brush my hide against
Between the WavesThe day's last sun ray's danced on the low swells of the North Atlantic.Between the Waves3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The steely gray waters were alive with hues of crimson, orange and gold.
Night was coming fast, but that didn't mean I couldn't dance in nature's spotlight for one last moment.
The frigid temperates of the water felt like soothing as they surged against my side.
I breached the surface to breath in the crisp air. My dorsal fin weaved between the currents like a rudder and I steered my own course.
A long day of chasing fish and feasting on the ocean's bounty was behind me. My hunger was satisfied and I had no thoughts except the ocean and how far I could go.

the 22nd day, yeah
I will never forget...
Oh yeah yeah yeah..
The clouds were placed perfectly
and the trees, swayed so majestically
I still remember
as if it were yesterday, oh yeah
The red leaves, the pond was dashed with green
Come back to me
My memories are still crisp and clean
One day, I want to return
to that place, and escape.
Be at peace, and be reborn.
Find that bridge, be on the ledge.
I want to return, one day, someday
Maybe one day...
Red LakeRed Lake3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Along the road I'm going through,
The shortcut doesn't exist.
I have to go straight through the
Heavy path full of broken wrists.
In my chest there is one heavy stone
Instead of a live beating heart that
Once was there, but it suffered so much
That it killed all living signs of human care.
The fire burns in me, you can see
It in my eyes. The blue ocean has
Turned into the red lake filled with
Dead bloody rhymes.
A beautiful angel was here, but
It has left me because of my
Fear. It killed it inside and now I must
Fight with the cold chills.

If my f e a t h e r s could speak volumes ..
can I bring you out to accept me?
If miracles waited all their lives ..
would you want to see through to the end?
Walkingaway fromthe things I adore ..
if truth was a sign,
can I escape the tragedy I endure?
Pattern isn't in my veins ..
Fathering my beliefs ..
gathering moss for my frustration ..
floating irrationally without fruition.
What hole can give me a light?
goodness could breathe me my morphine ..
but my fears idle me to tears ..
forcing me to begin alone.
Couldn't see you there ..
were you believing in something?
After eating my hopes into your selfishness ..
Can you look into my eyes in r e g r e t?
Never could you place yourself in my circle ..
drinking on depression ..
and numbing on airless excitements ..
Are you happy?
Separating memories, Separating moments ..
shattering mercilessly into the unknown
diminishing goals of guidance ..
putting my sanity to price ..
could I forgive myself

I'm in no hurry to change,
If I grew to fast-- wouldn't that be strange!
Consider the flower, see it grow?
I think it's best both nice and slow.

You ask me why I'm still standing,
even after all the pain,
after all my bleeding,
and tears dripping like rain.
Maybe it's because I forgot,
but I don't think that's it.
I think it's because I remember,
who never let me quit.
I remember ever tear,
and still hold every scar,
but even though I'm gone,
I remember you're not far.
I may have given up,
and I may have moved away,
but who was it that used to tell me
in my heart you'll always stay?
Even through the loneliness,
and indecisive days,
I remember who stood by me
and made me change my ways.
So every time I forget
why I never went down,
I remind my myself who it was,
who never let me frown.
Though there aren't many,
the few friends that did stay,
like you all have done for me,
I'll love you anyway.
Desert Rain Lightning flashes, illuminating the shadowed sky.Desert Rain3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Rains will come soon, bringing life to this desolate land. But how long the reprieve would last no one could be sure.
There is a flit of tan as the gazelle passes me in my crouched position. It is unaware while it races on that danger is so near. I smile at it's ignorance and lurch forward.
My sharp claws latch into the dust, and bring bursts of speed into my stride. The chase is on.
Another flash. My prey is lit for a fraction of a second. As it turns to look back, fear shines in its eyes. It desperately pushes itself on, trying to go faster.
The gazelle has speed, but I have stamina.
I have no pity, no sympathy. My determination conquers all second thoughts. This is just another kill, another meal, another day of survival. There will be no prisoners.
Mere feet away I didn't even think, only adrenaline is needed. Thunder rumbles in my ears and my feet pound the earth.

Huddled in a hallway,
in a corner of an old two story house.
A girl sat, knees ageinst her chest,
breathing as quietly as she could.
There was no where else to go,
she had run there.
She couldn't have turn around.
It would find her then, she new it would.
Tears streaking down her cheeks.
Crying as quietly as she could.
Staring, like a frightened deer, down that hallway.
She told them.
She TOLD them it was there.
That it was here, in their house.
Now the young girls' parents were dead,
and she knew it will come for her too.
She's to young and doesn't know what to do.
All she can do, is wait.
Frightened in the corner.
Breathing softly she closed her eyes and listened.
It was faint...
and getting closer.
She tightened her eyes before opening them again to stare down the hallway.
She bit her lip trying not to cry again.
Now at the beginning of the hallway, it stood hunched over slightly.
It's skin gray, like

Wind whistles through my feathers, I feel alive now more than ever.
My prey, so unaware and naive swims through the sparkling crystal waters.
I feel bad for it almost, but this is instinct and my chicks were waiting.
The only sound the kill made was when my talons breached the water.
I made it quick and seized my prize.
After all someday I could be the fish and the fish the falcon.

I don't live in a gutter
Or a shelter
I have enough to eat
And then some
I have family who care
I have friends who're there
I have time for leisure
But I am
I have a house
But not a home
As much as I try
To fill that void
I found home with nature
It faded to a shadow
Of its former self
I found home with friends
It faded to irritation
I found home with my family
But I didn't belong
In their home
I found home in your arms
But I didn't belong there
So I found home
In your company
But you deprive me
Of even that much
I don't want much anymore
All I want
Is to feel home again

Love is something that can't be taken back
Or so some say; though I've seen it turn grey
I've seen love slip away like sand through a crack
Poof, gone, done. Sometimes love doesn't go your way
She was the greatest gal in all the land
And just to see her smile I'd risk it all.
Happiest in the universe, holding her hand
None would have guessed that our love here would fall.
Winter came, she grew distant; she'd fallen for another
Glimmering in the snow, he came for her
Begging eyes glistened; held tight to my brother
Cried 'he was the one who made her heart stir'
With a heavy heart I sighed and said 'My love,
Without you I'm nothing, but ill watch from above'.

Sitting on the desk
s i l e n t l y staring
everything gone gray
Pouring out the tea
hoping the steam from it
helps me see
through this i l l u s i o n
The storm comes n goes
but the papers stay still
as i watch the whole table crumble
and pens clatter to the floor
It's r a i n i n g outside
the dews that came lay forgotten
the grass droops for comfort
but the weeds don't oblige
Kids splash through the mud
their voices ringing hauntingly
but the windows are fastened
and ears don't comply
A sigh of relief is unheard
from the sounds of frustration n regret
that don't relent
for all the times we spent
Thoughts caress my base of blues
but with holes that easily bruise
thatching up loose ends
that don't make real sense
Twittering away nonsense
all by myself
hoping for a new revelation
with every sad sentence
Pushing away a strand of hair
I just sit back n cry
and waiting in the evening sun
hoping for some pleasant surprise

Green, as bountiful as a hidden, untouched, unexplored forest
A secret of the ages, a wonderful landscape to see, so please, let me experience the loveliest
You are untainted, and still so innocent, you are a passion that has always been sought, and promised
The Earth below, the grass in between, the trees up above, the wind, I've waited for you the longest
You are my bountiful forest, everlasting, eternal, undying, immortal, you make me so selfish
Because I want you all to myself, always, and I will never, ever share you with anyone else
Yellow, as bright as a million Suns
A bringer of life, and in the center of it all, there is only one
You are the center of my heart, you are the meaning of my true love
Yet, you stray from my sight sometimes, leaving me cold and blind, I'm abandoned from above
You are my bright Sun, meant to be so far away, and if I get too close, you will get too hot
But I still yearn to hold you in my

The Best Brother EverThe Best Brother Ever3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I met this boy on a bus ride;
It was headed to L.A.
He sat all alone,
So I asked, "Mind if I join you?"
He said it was fine;
We hardly knew each other,
But we began talking as if we
Had known each other for years.
I learned so much about him on that bus ride,
And it inspired me to ask,
"Wanna be my brother?"
A shrug and a smile was his response.
On the ride back from L.A.,
I was kind of sleepy,
So I asked if he minded me,
Resting my head on his shoulder.
He cared not and he let me;
I never knew
That having a brother,
Would feel this good.
Teasing though he may be,
And sometimes annoying,
Never will I tell him to leave me alone;
He's the first to make me feel more confident when I feel shy.
He told me something,
Something that shocked me so much,
To the point of shaking.
I never knew he was
I never once thought
But no matter what he is,
He will always be my little brother.
I need to let him know,
So that he can feel reassured,
That everything will be okay,
