I want ever sigh and scream and
I wish for ever moan that mingles
in the air between every kiss.
I want your hot breaths against my neck.
I need the scratches on my back as you
squeeze me so tightly.
I want the exhausted panting on my bed and
I dream of the smile between gasps before
you lean up and kiss me on last time.
I want the three words you whisper in my ear before you fall asleep.
I want you.
I love you.

I awoke to the terrifying shrieks of townsfolk. I quickly got up and dressed. It was a terrifying sight outdoors. Barbarians everywhere screaming something that I could not comprehend, the townsfolk running and screaming trying to run to their homes, and then fall silent with an arrow through their poor bodies. I could not believe what I was seeing! I, being a frightened ten year old, ran to my parents' bedroom, "Mama! Papa! What is going on?!" I shrieked to them. They were standing at the window, gazing with alarmed expressions, at the terrifying scene outside.
They had such startled stares and expressions, I wondered i

The cell was cold and dark. Trip huddled in the corner listening to something dripping onto the floor, every drop seeming to reverberate as loudly as possible. He sighed for what seemed like the fiftieth time in five minutes.
"Ain't no use huffin', boy."
"It's not like you're concerned," Trip muttered into his knees. He got up and started pacing again.

This path I took, it was never meant to be walked alone
But I fear that you're starting to veer off
Leaving me to walk this road all alone
I hate this feeling of drifting apart
I need you, I can't do it by myself
Please, I'm scrambling in the dark
You are my light, my life
I fall into the dirt, crawling around blindly
I look up but all I see are the dark trees
They swallow up the sky and smiles evilly down at me
With tears in my eyes, I call out to you
"Please, don't leave me, you're drifting away from me"
The wolf keeps pulling you closer to him
With his evil grin, he looks over his should at me and says

In 1964 some energetic hippie bought 'er off a seattle merchant
And put 'er down in a basement of lava lamps. It's new love.
But the tie dye wears off after a couple years.
The couch was put on the corner and swept up by new hands.
Now a couch isn't one to give up,
She found a happy family from Wisconsin to fall into.
She would hold them all for saturday movies.
But a family can only live in one place so long.
The couch was put on the corner and swept up by new hands.
So her cushions were a little faded, so what?

Run, run, run away
Away from the tormenting kids
Away from the questions
Run to home
Walk in the door and see her
That's all that matters.
He ran up to her and held on to her as she cried.
And the bottle of pills she was holding dropped to the floor.
Every day he did this.
Every day he ran.
One day he was late.
One day his bus was stuck in traffic.
And that one day he ran home to an ambulance at his house
He didn't go to school for a week
And when he did
He walked home
He had no one to save now.
The City of Us Ch. 2All night I was tossing and turning, and at around 2:30 in the morning, I stopped fighting. I sighed a breath of defeat, and grabbed my phone. Shuffling through the contacts, I found exactly who I wanted to talk to. I sent a quick text to Scarlet that said hey, Scarlet. u up? I closed my eyes once more, waiting for the vibration of a reply to wake me from this drowsiness. Nothing came, and I waited a few more minutes. I cracked open one eye and was just about to turn it off, when finally the reply came.

though I still don't know your name.
The scribbles and twirls that make my world,
for a short while, your essence tamed.
Pen after pen, running out of ink,
in a desperate sprint towards forevermore.
It seems I am trapped by a mapped out life
that I do not remember signing up for.
The edges of this book scream freedom
but the border is no place to rest my hands.
My fingers grow tired, filling pages with desires
but within these boundaries and contours I am damned.
Each time pen meets paper, the void slowly fills
but the words never match what I wish to exclaim.

The gentle tug of felted tips and pen on skin

Let the shivers take me,
I wish you could experience something similar,
But I wouldn't know how to explain,
How wonderful it feels,
When I become your canvas.
Closing my eyes,
I listen to your steady breaths,
Your soft but precise movements on my skin,
My arm stretched across the cool wood,
My knuckles lightly touching your chest
I think, if I lay still enough,
I can feel your heartbeat through my skin
When you set that ink upon my skin,

A fog that cannot be cut through.
With nothing left to say, the darkness rises,
A shadow that is opaque.
Everyone settles in, an eerie chill climbing,
A pair of eyes that stares you down.
Lights blink out, cries of fear calling from closed doors,
A nightmare keeping them from reality.
Goodnight, goodnight, little children say goodnight,
Close your eyes, never blink, a shadow out of sight,
Good night, goodnight, little children say goodnight,
Or the monsters under your bed will...
Come after you.
EpiphanyThe curious natureEpiphany9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
of an epiphany,
in a moment
of enlightened solitude,
the blend of creativity
between the soul
and the heart and mind
of a mental dawn anew,
a sunrise reflected
on eyes that have learned
to perceive differently,
a golden flow of sunshine
in tumbling waves
into a dark, unlit valley
of a gap filled,
or a new crevice
to be excavated,
senses to be awoken,
to be activated
by a new perspective,
taught to see things
with new perception.
The Western HillDiscussing on the eye color of their future child, the two young lovers lingered too much on the western hill, beneath the ancient solitary tree.The black hound of the night swallowed the sun,and the moon, its mistress, forced again the world to see her face.When they finally noticed the late night, it was too late: a sinister growl grew closer...fire-birds seemed to run towards them, floating in the air.When these demons became closer, the boys discovered a horror even worse: the beasts, impaled on horns of unicorns, were the living torches of the trolls.Everything seemed lost, when the sound of a wooden-horn from far away made a griffin reaThe Western Hill9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

upon my wall,
my reflection is not beautiful,
not beautiful at all.
My skin sags,
and dullness lies
where a glittering spark
within my eyes.
The palette of violet
beneath my eyes;
to a passionate indigo.
Skintone, once golden,
The crow's feet
the flight that ended
at the corners of my eyes,
I look old and tired,
a lifetime spent
dabbling in frivolity,
and wasteful fashion.
My wrist tips

Walking on my own two feet, but
Inside I understand that I am just

Imperfect world. When all my hope
Collapses, and all I can do is weep,
I need something beside me, but
The only thought that comes is that
I am just a nobody, a speck of unwanted
Dust in this world, this harsh, cruel

No matter what you believe
And sweetie you have a kick-ass personality

The necks of their shirts pulled down low,
Their skirts cut short.
It’s like that with the boys, too,
Their pants sagging lower than they really should be.
They all hold up their joints to their lips,
Taking long drags,
And giggling like idiots afterwards.
Then the boys,
In a pathetic attempt to impress the girls,
Pull out their pocket knives,
And the girls take a step back,
And the boys’ pathetic attempt to impress the girls,
What’s the big deal?
I carry one everywhere,
Not to impress anyone,
Just because I like the fact,
That I have protection if a guy like that comes up to me.

drums are playing as we speak,
guns are fired in the moment,
we are here subjected to torment.
Bloodied, wounded, everywhere,
a battle on the field always gives a scare,
wave the flag for we have won,
though we shed blood for everyone.
Bullet piercing soft white skin,
fall to the ground and cry out for your sin,
tears will fall and memories shall haunt,
and all they do is fight and taunt.
Death fills the air and it's terrible scent,
medics going around to fix the rents,
none shall succeed and all shall die,
what we do is fight and lie.
