these lessons mean nothing

you- with a day, a word,
a breath of used air.
you want to dive back into that place
between my folds of sanity
where you can unravel the strands
and manipulate them in your hands
so I can't stop to think about
you can't change the blood
which surges through the cold,
forgotten parts of your body.
but you can tell yourself
if you shut your eyes,
you can pretend the scenes played in those weary lids
are the life you finally received.
because darkness hides the truth
but you can't rewrite your story
because you think you're different, now
(and different people don't make the same
you're falling down the same hole
with honey trap words
we can't rewrite history
or deny the similarities.

How you taunt me so.
Plump from my ideas,
With none for me to show.
Your mouth always open,
Waiting to be fed
The words that roll about
So messy in my head.
Each scrap a banquet,
Each page a tasty treat.
You grin at my failure
And swell from my defeat...
The ElfThe elf walks lightly wherever he goes,The Elf3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Leaving no footprints in dirt or snow.
He travels alone and knows no friends,
Under the bridge and around the bend.
He passes invisible before our eyes,
Cures our hearts and puts an end to our cries.
He's a wanderer with no home to his name,
A hero who gains no glory or fame.
He returns lost children who cry for home,
And still he has no one to call his own.
He leaves a faint scent of trees and sunlight,
During even the darkest hours of the night.
He works from dawn to dusk and from dusk 'til dawn
A miracle worker who does no wrong.
His rest is not sleep but a moment's pause,
Before he pulls a toddler from a cougar's jaws.
In his good deeds, the elf seeks a pardon,
For a crime all have long since forgotten.
A nomad of necessity and not of choice,
Only the mountains remember his voice.
Although he carries no pack his soul is heavy,
And should death come he has long been ready.
The elf walks lightly wherever he goes;
Empty solitude is all that he k

Neither your body.
I never needed your sex, nor your gentle kiss.
(Though I broke myself in two wishing for it.)
Instead I fell for your smile.
Though you gave it out rarely.
I fell for your naivety, your intellect, your laugh.
The best part of loving you, was the look you gave me.
(As though I might have been worth your time.)

We need rain, to see the rainbow.
We need darkness to love the light.
We need fights, to have a real friendship.
We need darkness too see the stars.
We need to suffer, to be strong.
We need troubles, to appreciate peace.
We need to struggle, to win.
We need to laught to forget the tears,
we need to fall, to raise.
We have to fail, to learn.
But we dont need to see, to believe and
we dont need hate, to love.
Revolution-Chapter 2You woke up in a very unfamiliar room. You wiggled around in the bed in which you had been sleeping. You found that you were wearing jeans, a t-shirt and a jacket rather than pajamas. The last nights events played again in your mind. You sat up and shook your head. After shedding your jacket, you walked out of the bedroom. You found Talia sitting on the couch, drinking a cup of tea.Revolution-Chapter 23 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Good morning, she greeted you quietly.
She appeared to be alone in the common area.
Wheres Bane? you asked drowsily.
I think he is on the roof. You should go and see him. The door leading to the staircase is down the hall, last door on the right.
Talia smiled at you and returned to her tea. You turned, still dazed, and headed down the hall. Once you arrived on the roof, you found Bane. He was facing away from you, punching and kicking a wooden practice dummy. With one particular maneuver,

Apparently we are "famously polite people". Hmm... I wonder why...? Even our independence was quiet and incredibly docile compared to war-waging America. You'll find the odd bully (oh, yeah, they're oddities around here) but the majority of the population are kind and welcoming!
2. You eat a lot of maple syrup.
We don't just pour it over pancakes, like world thinks we only ever do. We make candy, bake it into cookies, and sauté food in maple syrup. Have you ever tried maple syrup-smoked ham before? I suggest you do. MUCH better than that Spam in a can.

Look it up on Google; it's currently our national dish.

Rinaidae InfoLocal name- RinaidaeRinaidae Info3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Species name- Conlis Aelurus
Breeding habits- These creatures only ever mate once. However that doesn't mean that they don't still breed with others. Due to a lack of males, females can produce and give sperm. They lay eggs. Once the egg hatches the males leave the females to teach their children. They usually lay 2 eggs every 8 months.
Mating- As previously stated they mate once and thats for life. However they are a species that 'cheat' on their mates as to keep the species alive.
Young- Their young hatch from their eggs with no horns, no fire breathing or summoning abilities, and only two feathers on their rears. Young's wings are also too small for them to fly until they are 3 months old. They take 6 months to mature to teen age which is when the mothers leave them to themselves.
Measurements- 12 feet tall on all fours. 12 feet long not counting it's tail. It's tail is an additional 14-16 feet long. When standing on two feet, i

Self promotion? Some of you may be thinking I'm crazy, that that's just being shallow...but the truth is, if you go about it the right way, self promotion can boost the amount of notice you receive without harming any one.
For example, someone gives you a favourite; go and thank them! You don't have to go all out, with a page long comment; a short and sweet comment on their profile page (perhaps add

Generally, I’m a good kid. I pay attention in school, earning the high grades that decorate my report cards. I may not be especially popular, but I certainly have friends. I usually do as I’m told, don’t flagrantly disobey rules, and I try hard to please people. I retrace my steps in my mind, searching for the slip — the fall — that landed me here, on this cool, clammy table, wearing not much more than a requisite thin gown.
A crisp knock on the heavy wooden door to the exam room startles me, bringing my attention back to my predicament at hand. After

And smile big and wide,
Because all through the show,
I'll have big brother at my side.
100 Themes - CLICHESThis 100 Theme Challenge is about taking old cliches and twisting them to write something unique and intriguing. These can be inspiration for any type of literature: poetry, fiction, nonfiction, scripts, etc.100 Themes - CLICHES4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The list of cliches below was compiled mostly by scrolling through our own deviantART poetry gallery. It's appaling to see how many cliches are still being used in their original form with no effort given to making them new or interesting! The struggle for a lot of writers, I think, is that they make the cliche too much a focal point of their writing, rather than using it simply for inspiration or relatability.
I want to say this to all the writers out there who desire to be better: You can make a piece accessible without making it cliche.
If you choose to use this list, the cliches themselves are only your jumping off point. If you're writing a poem, you may decide to focus on the image evoked by the cliche and write something that surprises the reader. For a
Arachnid LoveTraveling over sticks and stonesArachnid Love4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A wayward lover is coming home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound
Never to emerge again
A spider entered his lady's den
Thoraces were hanging everywhere
Her abdomen loomed--white and bare
Afraid, he took the thread to seek, and
Nature told him what to speak
Awed eyes sparkled in recognition, and she
Embraced him in a quick decision
Languid love followed repetition
Evening came and the moon looked down
At arachnid lovers together bound
Glared at he who lay so still
Leered at she who made the kill...But his dead
Eyes stared back, happy and filled
Traveling over sticks and stones
The wayward lover has come on home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound...of arachnid love.

As you're there for me,
I feel we are family,
You are a sister to me,
And as sisters can grow apart,
You'll always have a special place in my heart.
We laugh, we cry,
My fears are set aside,
Knowing there's nothing I can't face
As long as you are near.
I know that someday,
Our paths will fade away,
We will have to say goodbye,
Nothing lasts forever,
Just know this,
No matter what the end,
I feel privileged to call you

skipping 'cross the seventy percent water

I am slipping through, sliding into
a seamless cervix, and she's serving
throat lozenges in the mean time,
mean time and mean country
serving time in this union, this marriage,

held the infant to the sagging bosom of
Hollywood and serfdom and surplus
as the nagging empress struts her new clothing

"This place is never clean!" Blaze would yell at him as he walked in the door from work. "Don't just stand there watching me, sweep or something!" She hissed fixing the pillows on the couch.
Shadow glared at her crossing his arms, "Tone it down your highness. Sit down, don't over work yourself."
She's gone into the nesting stage, where nothing could be as perfect as she wanted it, nothing could be too clean, and the bed had to be made in perfect symmetry. And not only that but her mood changes have been a living hell.

"Strawberries!! Go to the store and get me strawberries, and whipped cream, the one in the can." She said already pushing him out the door.
Ah, cravings. Shadow did his best to keep his temper while hers flared and spiked all over the place. Some times while they watched t.v she would start crying over the cereal commercial.

Silver bit his lip and twittled his thumbs nervously. "N-no. I mean, that's great but That's that's not really what I meant "

"Well I care about you. As maybe you know more than just a friend?"
Silver had just admitted to having a crush on me! Oh, gosh! I looked down at my feet and tried to think of what to say to him. Then it dawned on me: if Shadow wasn't interested in me, then I shouldn't throw away this golden opportunity I had with Silver. After all, we had known each other for a long time and I knew he truly cared for me.
When I looked back up at him, he had his eyes closed like he was bracing himself for heartbreak. I stood up

Draining every last drop from the human, the human did not jerk any more but acted motionless. After the young vampire hedgehog had drank all the blood he had felt very guilty.

But it hurts when you get angry
And you don't say why
You look at me in tears
Sometimes you almost shout
The frustration you bring upon me
The anger you bring out
I'm mad because I care
I want nothing more than to see you smile
I just want to help
And believe me
I'll be here a while
When you cry
My eyes tear at the seams
When you're sad
Rain clouds haunt my dreams
But when you laugh or smile
My lips curl up too
You still just make me so happy, I only wish I could express
How much I still love you.
