Loki had a reason behind everything he did in his life, even to that day he had a reason for everything. The one he used to call brother would never know the true reason behind it all, would never know on that day why Loki was upon Midgard. Dressed to be warm, Loki appeared within a very small town in Norway called Brekstad, he had come to enjoy this tiny town and the people that lived there. But one drew his attention far more than anything other and it was that very person he now met in the town square, taking her hands as they were extended out towards him.
Eira, a beautiful young woman with flowing black hair and the most intense green eyes Loki had ever seen. How she had known it was him she was reaching too he would never know, for she was blind since she was a child but she still knew it was him. She always gave the reasoning she just knew, it seemed to be enough reasoning for her and for him as well. The smell of snow hung in the air around them as he pulled her into a gentle e

z błyszczącymi oczami i uśmiechem tak złym
w chłodnej złości oparze, leciutkim jak koronki
nie bój się, nie -
przyszłam po zwrot głupiej mrzonki.
Gdy zobaczysz mnie w lesie, stąpającą po mchu
cicho, szybko i miękko, jak elf z dziwnego snu,
gdy stanę przed tobą, wzrokiem przeszyję do kości
nie bój się, nie -
przyszłam po zwrot naiwności.
Gdy mnie dostrzeżesz przy sobie jasnym dniem, w tłumie ludzi,
pośrodku miasta-maszyny, co z transu się nie budzi,
gdy będę śledzić twe kroki, ukryta w gwarze i szumie
nie bój się, nie -
przyszłam po zwrot mojej dumy.
Gdy nie będziesz się mógł uwolnić od mej postaci,
kiedy gdziekolwiek spojrzysz, mój wizerunek zobaczysz,
gdy będę szumem w twej głowie, huczącym niby pszczół roje

Do you see it?
In the face of a worshiper as she sings out
Eyes closed, reaching up to the One she loves.
The light that shines when she remembers what He has done.
I know how it feels.
A fire rising up in your very being,
Such joy and passion for God fills you up,
Builds tension in your chest,
Like a bird fluttering to be free from a cage,
The praise escapes and leaves,
And then you are lost.
Lost in the wings that protect,
A fortress that surrounds,
A love so complete,
And you aren't aware of singing anymore,
Or anyone who is around.
Your entire being caught up
In this perfect love.
And then you open your eyes,
But don't see,
Because all thought is fixated on Him.
Such wonderful peace is found,
in the most passionate worship.
Even when tears fall down your face,
Because life has brought you to your knees,
God hears more than just the words,
But every hurt you have,
And helps carry them.

'You're doing it again.'
Liara stood watching the cold rain fall hard against the glass, the world behind the silent drops heavy and grey; beyond that just clear sky, the taut blue quality a reminder of the still morning with its retained essence of hardness. A confidence in the warm light that burst through the dark clouds in smoky arcs and bright tracers, the sun piercing the corners and distant edges of a storm that didn't quite reach the severity of its name. She watched the dream-lit contrails that streaked cleanly in the high, distant sky.
Her mother hadn't replied or didn't hear, so she said it again, this time a little louder, a little force in her tone.
'You're doing it again.'
Liara missed a beat. Prolonging the quiet, enjoying the moment.
'Watching me, like I don't know you're there.'
'Watching you?' she asked.
She could barely make out the small figure cross-legged on the floor, the sofa wide and pale between them.
How Great is He?He put the universe where it isHow Great is He?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He measured it with the palm of his hand
Everything we see is his
And it all obeys his every command
His love out shines every star
He will hear my cry
It doesn't matter how far
And will save me in the blink of an eye
In all of creation he made every cell
And designed its every part
On earth every animal he made them dwell
He even designed my heart
Bigger than every mountain
Which will tumble at the sound of his voice
Bigger than the massive ocean
Every creature in it when seeing him will rejoice
Space earth water and even the air
They are all in his control
What do we have to fear
Living for him should be our goal
We cannot imagine his great beauty
For his eyes are like a flame of fire
Can we even look at this deity
For his glory could cause us to expire
I am speechless trying to write this poem
For I do not have the ability to grasp him
I feel like a tiny crumb
Though in a river of his love I swim

*Knock knock knock*
Sheldon's ear caught a faint sob coming from inside of the apartment.
Even though Sheldon knew it would be rude of him to enter withought her consent, he did anyway.
Another sob, this time from the bedroom.
A feeling of shock and depression inked over him when he saw her hunched over on her bed, her face in her hands, blonde hair a cob-webbed mess around her shoulders. Her body shaked violently as she continued to sob.
She didn't seem to notice he was there until he sat down on the bed next to her.
When she looked up mascara tears rolled down her face onto her legs.
Her face cringed painfully, and more tears poured out.
Sheldon really didn't know what to do, or what to say. He moved closer to her. Before he knew what was happening she had her arms around his neck, mascara tears staining his shoulder. And he embraced her back.
"Sh-sheldon...why do men have to be so mean? I mean, even before we go out, I already

Lure me in with silk and gold,
beaded velvet, satin threads
drawn across lips still red with wine.
Draw me down beneath the world
into some secret, wanton lair
while Carnival still beats within our veins.
Wall me up behind the dark
and leave me with my silver chains
to think on wiles byzantine,
Montresor's bleak design.
Hearing FlavorsEasy as a piece of cake?Hearing Flavors4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
That might be what you think.
But easy, for me, is a slice of pizza.
Say it any way, and it still has that saucy, cheesy taste.
A word becomes food. Simple as that.
And that's the simple that yells out, "Baked beans!"
If you are smart, you're intelligent.
But intelligence bears the salt of olives
While smartness has more of a meatball flavor.
To think is different from having a thought.
Thinking is like hot dogs.
A thought is the texture of phlegm in your throat after coughing.
Now, is beauty truly a pretty thing?
Its flavor is the taste of puke in my mouth.
I can't taste an illusion, but if I ate a dream
It would be juicy and sweet like mandarine oranges.
Needing is the syrup placed on the wanted bread.
Rhyme and reason become rice and raisin.
But it doesn't go the other way.
A bird is a blackberry, but a blackberry can't be a bird.
An apple is the beginning. Shredded mozzarella is when you finish.

i am pulsing. my brain is filling with electricity- a blown fuse has been replaced. all the sudden, i see you again. i see you laughing, so far away and yet so close. your face has a way of lighting up like you've always known about him- that man you said you'd find. and inside i am dying, but something sad has a way of holding on.
yet here you are, and i am dying again. a few words written, a thank you, a description of something buried deep inside- the last wisps of snowflakes and shards of ice are churning, desperately keeping in motion, trying to survive.
you have a way with words. you speak in tongues that are both enchanting and undecipherable. i had hoped that someday i would be able to speak with you; to keep myself moving- to survive like those last breaths of winter. nothing ever really happens though- not when

i watched a man speak once. he told of the stars, planets, and people- and how they all came to being. some people say a picture is worth a thousand words, but no one ever gives the worth of words that create images. he created images of blackness- of a non-existent identity.
he told me about the birth and made very clear that it was the only beginning that ever really existed. he said, "the creation of something is the start- and nothing happens before the start. there is no god to shoot a gun or shout, 'go'". there was no time- and time is really the only living thing to this very day.
my head collapses inwards- my eyes explode with small white lights and swirling colors.
i have seen people wearing beige sweaters and carrying meaningless charts, and they always seem to win at life. i see you become one of these people- your dreams are rotten, and your hope is only there as a survival tactic. i used to think that i knew you, and you told me what you thought right.
you spoke about life

It was past Sunhigh; the sun was beginning to drop towards the horizon, though the sky was still bright and clear overhead.
Fireheart had just returned to camp after a hunting session with his apprentice, his nephew Cloudpaw, though here was a lot going on in the fiery coloured tomcat's head. Most of it was the anger he was holding back after an argument with his apprentice. The young irresponsible tom had caught a pigeon, but nearly lost it because of his imprudence and his lack of attention. Not only that, but Cloudpaw had showed little respect to the life he was taking away. Of course, Fireheart scolded him for his behaviour, but Cloudpaw had a mind of his own and refused to be taught.
What was harder for Fireheart's conscious was that he felt somewhat responsible for this kit's doing. Not because he was his mentor, but because he was the one bringing the kit into the clan. Cloudpaw was his sister's son, and Fireheart wanted to make her proud, not make her regret her decision. She t

"Um. . . Adam?"
Adam was staring up at the sky, not even taking notice in his friend. "You're thinking about her again aren't you?" Adam hesitantly nodded before finally meeting his friend's eyes. "Yeah, . . . I know this is going to be a repeat of what I've been rambling on about for the past few months, but I just can't seem to not miss her." Adam let out a faint chuckle before smiling. "Even though she'll be coming back in a few days."
"She went to an art school right?" Aaron asked, trying to break the streak of awkward silence forming between the two. A bigger smile seemed to find it's way onto Adam's face as he nodded. "Yeah, it took some time, but I finally was able to convince her to go." Aaron nodded before lightly smacking Adam on the back. "Well, look at it this way, at least she'll be coming home this week, right?" Adam nodded.
"Hey, um I'm going to head home. I'll talk to you later, ok?" Aaron smiled, knowing well that he was itching to call her. "Alright, later Adam."

When I am mad, sad, suffocating
Trying to run away from my frustration, away from myself
-you're there, holding my hand
There, to help me face it, deal with it, be strong and overcome my hurts and disappointments
Cause you're there
When I am happy, flying high in skies unexplored
-you're there, knowing exactly why I am smiling and you smile with me
I've never seen a hint of jealousy or selfishness in your eyes
Always true, always sincere- isn't that rare?
Cause you're there, even when you're actually not with me
Your spirit lies deep within my soul, keeping my heart warm and full.
You are there.
Beautiful, inside and out.
Let me tell you once again, how much I love you, for being you.
And let me tell you a secret.
I'll be there for you, too.

Come in, come in...
Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Can’t you hear the sound?
Come in, come in...
There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.
Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.
Don't be afraid...
You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!
Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.
No need to bring water, no need to bring bread
