Tell me, can you do it?
Can you keep the disgust

Can you believe

But make no mistake
this bleeding heart won't

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

*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.

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.

You're only safe when in disguise.
Remove your mask and be betrayed.
There's every reason to be afraid
A stranger's frozen face, flashing eyes,
Life is a perilous masquerade.
A look sharp as a tempered blade.
Honeyed wordsdo not listen to their lies.
If you remove your mask you'll be betrayed.
Dance, smile, and nod; a silent shade,
Hide deep your heart and beware of spies.
Life is a dance, a whirling masquerade.
Difficulty comes with your temper frayed
Take courage, and let no one hear your cries.
Dare you remove your mask, risk being betrayed?
Discover who you are, before you fade.
But keep part of yourself secret, if you are wise.
Life is nothing but an unending masquerade
Remove your mask and be betrayed.

"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."

a message for the world.
'If I scream as loud as I could,
would you be able to hear me?
Thrown into the ocean
for the sea to swallow
the single sentence.
As the sea swallows its prize
she lets out a horrible hollow cry
for the world to hear.
The world does nothing
but capture her scream
and store it for later
when it asks why she cries
and why she hurts.
For if she screams as loud as she could
would the world listen?
Or is it just a message in a bottle
meant to be swallowed by the sea?

One morning she awoke to find workmen in her garden. They had already pulled up the sage bush, dumping it unceremoniously, root side up atop the rosemary, atop the basil so that it looked like a miniature baobab, or whatever they call those trees in Africa with the habit of growing upside down. She wished she could shrink down and scurry off into that diminutive landscape. She wished she could call to the workmen and tell them to get out of her yard, to tell them that sage could be burnt to ward off evil spirits. Instead, she let her teacup slip through her fingers. It greeted the floor with the expected crash, a hundred tiny shards singing and reveling in newfound freedom, tracing wet trails across the tile.
She stepped over the puddle and pressed her forehead against the kitchen window. One of the workmen was standing in the corner of the yard, conversing with the policemen she knew would be there. Another trekked slowly around the yard with a metal detector while two more stood wais
