...old song...The sea in the throat of a shell...old song...2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The wind blowing over the steeple
Faith in the voice of the evening's last bells
Life in the murmur of people
A song for the final embers of day
Made from colours plucked up by the wind
As it slipped through the grass, tangled in hair
Swept the blush from somebody's skin
Older than cities, though sung in their voice
In the late afternoon's lilac haze
Older than voices, than shells, bells or gods
A song for the last light of day

Knowing as they shed tears, seared blood in the flames falls
Why death alone they think, cleanse us from their sins in which we'd die
The sin of being born a woman, which is never only the sum of our parts
For all the wives killed for delivering another feminine division
To a world so vivid, imperfectly shaped, going wild
The soft arms and broken fingers in vice
For the budding breasts ripped with fire tongs
For all those who are neither ugly nor splendor, but only a women
Those whose beauty & ugliness brought their torturers to furry
Who were pricked and broken on wheels for an inquiry transgression
And for all those who screamed in vain to the Great Goddesses.
For all those which sang and drank in the law of Nature & LOVE
For theirs is the secret door which opens upon the land of youth
For all those who died, stripped naked as a
MasksEveryone wears a maskMasks2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Whether it be of smiling or pain
Hate or Love
Shame or pride
Ego or Anger
Everyone wears a mask
It cracks sometimes
People can see through the chipped paint
See past the fake
See past the facade
We all wear masks
Ones of animals
Ones of other people
Ones that we would like to be
Ones that we hate
We all have a mask
Something we can hide behind
Something we can use to fight
Something that keeps us safe
Keeps us okay in the beginning
Keep our secrets
Hold our treasures in locked vaults
Keep our hearts from breaking
Keep the tears from showing
We all have masks
You can paint them up
It can be anything
Because no one can see past the mask
No one knows what anyone's face really looks like
Humanity is made of Masks
What is yours painted of?

"Excuse me, is this seat taken?"
"Huh!" waved the young man sitting at the table. "I guess not. I mean, I suppose you could sit here if you liked, but "
"Now now," started the newcomer. "I'm going to be here whether you need a drinking buddy or not." He took a causal swig from the younger man's glass, and smiled at him. "What do you want from me? It's mine anyway."
"Pssh! I could care less what you do. There are bigger things on my mind than some street bum."
The older man (who was not old, but rather young himself), smiled and hunched over in an attempt to look as dirty as possible. "If I was a true bum, like you say, I would have asked for your seat with this!" He took out a knife and waved it playfully at the young man, drawing looks from the nearby patrons. "Tell me though, what's got you so grouchy?"
Parasitic LoveI want to dive into your bloodstreamParasitic Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
drink you dry from the inside
as I swim in the last warmth of your dying.
And when it all goes cold
I am still alive
to preserve your beautiful corpse.
Here you will stay sleeping forever
while inside of me you live eternally,
I want to devour your heart
and feel it beating deep within me,
like a parasite I lodge myself inside of you,
and once my hooks are set in place,
I will never let you go.

Sleeping demon composed of words is
Awakened thanks to your encouragement
Giving me a brand new purpose
Skeleton within my head
I thought the poet was long dead
After the comment from you I read
I know it was just asleep instead
Now it's out and wreaking havoc
Door wide open
Free to offend
To mach and shock
Gaining force like a falling rock
These things I write are all your fault
It was you who unlocked this here vault
Don't get me wrong
I'm deeply thankful
But if I write something quite awful
Or even something near unlawful
It's only because you were so thoughtful
I'll never forget the leap this year
I can write again and instill fear
So you see you're like my pioneer
A giant thanks to you my dear

31. Show The Love After An Argument
Yes, we all argue and we should every now and then. But nobody likes to keep resentment after an argument. After an argument, BOTH people should apologize and you should then proceed to make up. Holding on to any negative feelings only makes the situation worse for both of you. Also, stay with each other after an argument, don't just hang up, block them, and storm off. Once again, this makes matters only worse. When you abandon the argument in a bad mood, you avoid fixing the problem entirely and leave room for more tension to come. Both of you can take some silent time to cool off, just stay on the line with each other.
After an argument, strive to still go on to say "I love you". It can be immediately after or half an hour after, but try to say it within a few hours of the argument. The sooner the better, and showing that you still care and love your partner even after
Our ScarsScars fade, but never disappear completely. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Scars remind you of the battles you've fought, the trials you've faced and overcome. They show the world that you're human. You've struggled through life just as everyone else has at one point or another. You came out of the battle, not unscathed, but alive. You won the fight. If you hadn't, you'd still be bleeding. But you're not. You're wounds have healed and all that remains are little scars. But these scars aren't ugly. They're beautiful in their own way. They show your weaknesses that have or soon will become your strengths. Sure, they do stilll hurt somethimes, but that just proves that your wounds are slowly, but surely healing. The pain will lessen, it just takes time. Be patient.Our Scars2 years ago in Emotional More Like This

Hello Mother, Hello Father
This is me your son or daughter
I can't stay long, so I'll say it fast;
I need to go over things of the past
Listen closely, now don't you fret
This letter is to you so you won't forget;
It happened quickly, I understand,
Just listen to my reprimand:
This first part is to you, my mother
The one who didn't even bother:
You brought me into this dead world,
Then you left me to die
You never said one word to me
You never said goodbye
An infant child no more than one
Cries long into the night
The yearning for its mother's tone
To play in its ears has died
As it grew it never knew
Of what a mother would be like
You left me alone in this world
And I cried every single night
The next is to my father so,
You held on tight and never let go:
I love you much
You know it's true
It's not all your fault
So don't blame you
You were young and stupid
In this world
Every night it changed
It was always a different girl
You weren't there

Where Trolls meet Biology: Part 1, BellybuttonsWhere Trolls meet Biology: Part 1, Bellybuttons2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Let me begin this rant with the disclaimer that I have nothing against Andrew Hussie's imagination, and I greatly respect the webcomic Homestuck. His work in creating an entire species cleverly based on human culture and even moreso the internet subculture is ingenious and I love it. Unfortunately, Hussie is not a bio major. He is not an expert on evolutionary biology, and he has made mistakes.
Trolls, biologically speaking, are a nightmare.
We start by taking an insect-based species and giving them mammalian traits. We make them comparable to Homo sapiens in proportions, height, weight, and function. Their intelligence level (on average) is also comparable to the human species. Hussie has established that the trolls are closely linked with humanity, both biologically and culturally. Now the problem with this concept? You're taking an organism from the Arthropoda phylum and trying to make it meet the functionality of an organism from the Chordata. It just doesn't w

Divided We StandBrother, little brother, why did you let me go?Divided We Stand4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You let that Slavic giant steal me from my home
He dragged me from you through the cold, cold snow
Believe me, brother, I put up a fight
But I was no match for my wintery foe.
Brother, he made me build a wall through Berlin
I know it's separating our people from their kin
It's a dividing line stopping me from seeing you
So tell me, brother, do you miss me too?
Brother, it's been a while, and my people have changed
No longer do they speak the language called after your name
Even I learned his strange alphabet, but I'm growing weak
Communism isn't all it's cracked up to be;
Brother, you're lucky to have a democracy.
Brother, it's been longer still
And as the years go by, I'm growing ill
For these people will forget about their once-proud nation
And they must welcome these changes with forced elation
Brother, I tried to cross the wall
But the guards shot me, and down I fell

with pools of light streaming out of their torches like car headlights in the rain.
Tonight is long and lonely, and voices wash over me in the dark.
Night checks, and rays of light pour over the sleepy shadowed forms of us,
into our eyes. Each black silhouette,
the shape of a patient in the middle of a dream.
I can feel insects crawling under my hands
but I can never dig them out.
Early morning cups of sweet black tea bring
a sense of comfort and normality to being an
involuntary psychiatric patient locked up in solitary.
Sleepless nights lying with outward eyes
at the disembodied hands pushing through the ceiling.
I curl around myself and wish I could disappear.
My hands are red and raw from trying to scratch
out the bugs that crawl underneath. I try to show
the insects to the staff, but none of the nurses believe.
One of the humanless spirits holds my spine
while the disembodied voices whisper "stay as low as you can

Who should dictate who people can marry?
Who should say you can't love that special one?
No one should.
It's not a choice.
It just is.
From the day you're born.
It's never going away.
If I wanna love, who I wanna love,
Then why can't they?
There no different
Were all humans
We all have feelings
We feel pain
And we all feel love
Whether it might be a boy, loving a girl
Whether it might be a girl, loving another girl
Or a boy loving another boy
It doesn't matter.
We're all one.
So embrace it.
And get over it
They ain't hurting anybody.

SamI am SamSam3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sam I am
Laid to rest
In my master's hands.
With the world bent around me
With buildings on their side
The one thing I want
Is is the one thing you can't find.
Death, in his cloaks
Has ravaged the lands
While on my arm
I wear his bands.
For I am his slave.
His servant to kill
While he sits and drinks
From his old copper still.
I used to be someone
With fortune and fame
'Til I lost it all
In one little game.
Now I walk the roads
Damning the few
The ones that figure out
That I'm not like you.
I'm soulless, but powerful
A demon alright
So keep your lights on
For I strike in the night.
The shadows empower me
Giving me abilities unthinkable
To the average man
Who's problems are undrinkable.
I am Sam
Sam I am
I ravage the land
With my own two hands.
Death to my right
Destruction to my left
All that's for me
Is the life of an adept.

I'm not sure what I feel
But I'm positive it's a big deal
Sometimes it's sad, sometimes lonely
Sometimes mad, but that's not the only
I know I am not alone
And I know you'll always be there
But my heart isn't made of stone
It's not like I don't care
Because I don't know what's happening
Can this ever be repaired?
The slightest relief could mean anything
I'm not sure how I'm going to make it through
But please don't come for my rescue
I believe I need to be on my own for this
Whatever situation this is.
I will be okay
In the future someday
Meanwhile, try to stay strong
Because I'm sure it won't take that long
