W9rds (Cronkri)I had just broken my vow of celibacy with Cronus. It may not have been the best decision I'd made, but right now, I wasn't going to worry about it. At the moment, his arms were around me. Not just another woman he'd picked And he was whispering into my ear. We were both growing sleepier by the second, and his lullaby of words was easing me to sleep. And this time, his song was toying with my heartstrings instead of his gutair ones.W9rds (Cronkri)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"I love you, Kankri.. And I know I've said some pretty hurtful things in the past, but I just really wanna be with you, chief" he said. I smiled a bit. I could forgive him. He had been trying to get into everyone's pants, occasionally succeeding. And the apology he had never given to me was being offered up on a silver platter. Right now, triggers had gone out the window. I wanted to be with Cronus. I just didn't know if he'd still be here in the morning. What if he has another one night stand tomorrow? No, now was not the time to be thinking about such

There he is again,preaching on a street corner in the dead of winter in the dorky looking red turtleneck with fog wafting from his lips and why the fuck were you staring at his lips anyway. You growl and kick at the ground for even coming across the thought,which gets you a questionable glance from a passerby. You sigh and cross your legs. For some reason you can't seem to take your eyes off that bastard and his thick fluffy hair that you can't help but want to run your fingers through. No. Focus,you're here to people watch,not gawk at Kankri for an hour. Why are you so warm near the neck? You brush your fingers behind your leather upturned collar and find your fins have been fluttering intensely and look at that dork how dare he make you feel flustered someone should knock that little shit silent.

"Kankri are you ready yet?" I hear my father calling from downstairs.
"Yeah, I'll be down in a in minute." I draw a few whiskers on my cheeks then head downstairs. Both my little brother and my father were in the living room. Karkat is dress like a little vampire and our dad is a Pirate. This year I'm taking Karkat out trick-or-treating, while dad stays home and pass out candy. Our mom has to work tonight and won't be back till later.
"Ready to go Karkat?"
"I've been ready for the past half hour."
"Right, let's so." The two of us heads out the door before the first set of kids showed up. We went from house to house getting candy and having some fun. I would go up to the houses with him sometime and sometimes I would stay at the sidewalk.
"Kankri why do you take me trick-or-treat every other year?"
"Well, our parents and I agreed that we'd t

But the devil has taught me that my sorries will constantly be synthetic like my emotions.
So I cheated on my happiness with melancholia because my respiration has no gravity in this universe.
I can't be alive to tell you I actually mean it, to say I'm sorry means I love you a thousand times times infinity.
All wrapped around my pinky with a red ribbon
Pointless PainI listen for a special moment to sing this songPointless Pain2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Hoping that you would be able to hear
But in the end you probably wouldn’t care
Still it won’t stop me from making an effort
There’s nothing else to do but to try
Can I ask you why you don’t believe?
What do we need to prove?
Just to show that we’re good enough for you
I don’t know what it is but that is why
The question is being asked
Hopelessly I try to see the day to the end
Trying not to pretend that you actually like me
But in the end I could just admit the truth
And say that you hate the sight of me
How can I know just why that really is?
Super powered to the point of addiction
I don’t see the point of being this way
But yet people dream of being full of power
Amazing to think that such people can exist
However in the end it’s really not that surprising
When you think of the fools that live in this world
Stuck in a lonely way I hope to stop powering up the fans
That causes the fires to
Sonnet XIDear Death, thou art shunned, yet I welcome thee,Sonnet XI3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I fear not thy shade nor thy trailing shroud,
Whilst mankind greets thee with a teary plea
I shall embrace thee like a monsoon cloud.
Why men fear thy presence I cannot say,
Nor discern why in thy company, weep,
For life bears us all: love, woe, ceaseless sway,
But death, kind death, cares for every man's sleep.
My love for thee exceeds mortality,
And as seasons sweeten the sweetest wine,
Lend my fruitful years to vitality
And I shall remain eternally thine.
Ring my vows from my grave O timeless wife
We eloped at birth for the afterlife.

In a cotton ball
The way Lilly pads
Travel over a pond's surface.
You tell me—with lips drawn down
"Pay attention, you always do this."
In a haze I nod and tap
My twice chewed-over lips.
My head floats
In a cotton ball
A sloth on a branch.

Parted without any goodbyes…
falling from the highs
fresh and beautiful!
Just falling freely, with no rule….
All those eyes watching,
see a bright smile, and sing,
"wonderful, delightful, how free!"
The real truth can anyone see?
As it dropped off the leaf,
all eyes gone and solitaire engulfed it's belief
of someone to understand,
that there's a frown behind that smile
None stretched their hand, let it dissolve in the sand
the dew drop's worth just lasted a while…
nobody to understand the story
of the one that lost it's melody,
waiting to be freed from melancholy:
The song of the one, who's lonely…
ButterfliesTake notes my friend, and do as you please,Butterflies2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
for butterflies can be killed with the quickest of ease,
This may sound stupid, it might sound absurd,
but let me paint a picture using nothing but words.
Butterflies are fragile, simple and small,
but with only one wing they are able to fall,
They don't come in one, they come in all colours,
but just seeing one of them doesn't make it summer.
We catch them by chance, hold them in our hands,
and let go when we want them to find new land.
We admire their routine in the sun-shining day,
and feel nothing but sadness when they fly away.
Now back to business, what I said at the start,
compare the butterfly to the love in our hearts,
yes, the two are different but make no mistake,
love falls like a butterfly when one half breaks.
TreasureI found a treasure on the street,Treasure3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
More precious than anything I ever saw.
He was hiding in the shadows,
Unnoticed by those who never look.
But I saw him, filled with light,
With a heart of gold and calming warmth.
I saw him, hiding in the darkness,
Hoping for some light to reach his eyes.
I knew what he was waiting for,
I knew how he felt, day for day,
Where hope seemed unreachable,
That boy whose life seemed worthless and dark.
I saw the surprise he felt,
When I stopped and reached towards him,
"What are you doing in that corner?
Look around, it's a bright and sunny day!"
Slowly he nodded and stood,
his large eyes finally turned towards the light,
his children's face almost too thin
to hold that rare smile, more precious than a diamond.
But as he stepped towards me
His smile wavered and died,
As doubt invaded his mind,
And happiness seemed just a dream.
"Why would you help me?
I have nothing to give."
I smiled and took his little hand,
Leaving behind the darkness he knew.

Her endowment lies in the borrowed eye,
And whilst man's first sense remains to see
So lives sweet Charm, and she will not die.
Yet, as her aspect forms a chosen home
As each lonely moth seeks the candle's flame,
Alas! T'was pride which lit pompous Rome
And its blaze will char Charm's cherished name.
Beloved Charm long hast thou been warned
In painted lines or eternal verse,
For every poor soul that thou hast scorned
Thy blessings perish, born thy worst curse.
And live thou a life, much pious and outspoken
Much less gashed thy soul by the shards of the broken.

Caught in bedeviled compass.
Such a fragile separation -
Should we try to break the confinement?
Raindrops soaking a bitter world,
Fringed with red wine.
Should I have traded life's tincture
For a glimpse of solemn ghosts
Shadowed in puddles on the cobblestones?
Rotten iron and tin -
Pity to be distressed, love
Given for a lifeless spectrum.
...Would it be too much for me to mention -
Your prices are ridiculously expensive.

"Sorry." You mumble, and he squeezes your hand a little bit to tell you it's alright; but you do look back at him. You swear that guy looked at you funny.
John looks at you like he's worried you'll do something stupid. Well, that was a possibility.
You wouldn't tell him this, but you were in a horrible mood today; you felt like shit and you were sure you had a cold, and you hadn't had the best night's sleep. To tell the truth, you were more than a little bit cranky, and you were pretty sure despite you not saying anything rude to him; John knew that.
He was extra snuggly today; that made you feel a bit better. But he knew you got protective on bad days like this, and made sure to act extra laid back.
If you thought anyone was making him uncomfortable or was making you that way, you'd take them out.
Or, at least you'd like to; hearing the anger in John's voice like a moment ago was enough to make yo
