The Queen's Complaint
In ruck and quibble of courtfolk
This giant hulked, I tell you, on her scene
With hands like derricks,
Looks fierce and black as rooks;
Why, all the windows broke when he stalked in.
Her dainty acres he ramped through
And used her gentle doves with manners rude;
I do not know
What fury urged him slay
Her antelope who meant him naught but good.
She spoke most chiding in his ear
Till he some pity took upon her crying;
Of rich attire
He made her shoulders bare
And solaced her, but quit her at cock's crowing.
A hundred heralds she sent out
To summon in her sight all doughty men
Whose force might fit
Shape of her sleep, her thought-
None of that greenhorn lot matched her bright crown.
So she is come to this rare pass
Whereby she treks in blood through sun and squall
And sings you thus :
'How sad, alas, it is
To see my people shrunk so small, so small.'

Pure black; grey velvet sheets pouring through the window from outside's dawn. Pierrot's eyes blinked carefully open, and peered around the room, which seemed oblivous to the fact it was morning, as everything in it was still coated in darkness. Quietly peeling off his covers so as not to disturb Serious Moonlight, his no-nonsense-before-noon room-mate. Well, frankly, Serious was no-nonsense at all, really, thought Pierrot. Slinking out into the hallway, Pierrot relaxed. He loved this time of day. It was his time. No one was up, and therefore no one could see him. Walking to the loo, he pondered his role in this new house. He never was sure if he was afraid of everyone, and he didn't talk to them because of it, or if they were afraid of him and that was why they didn't talk to him. Either way, he was shy, and no one liked him at all. He wasn't...unlikable, he thought, just very, very quiet, and odd. He rarely even ta

Shave my armpits with a brick
Clean my ears out with a dick
Use barbwire without a doubt
And floss till all my teeth fall out
Wipe my shining pristine ass
On a gravely glass-strewn plane tarmac
Turn my titties inside out
And pickle them in sauerkraut
Garnish that with pubic hair
Plucked from a horse's derrière
Eat it à la mode with knives
Wash it down with a glass of lye
Stand in for a pink piñata
Rinse my eyes with Piña colada
Drink a bucket's worth of sand
And pull my hairs out all by hand
Taking days to finish the task
Until I'm bald from head to ass
Until I'm bald from ass to toe
So devoid of hair I practically glow
Stand in front of a cow stampede
And let them take a crap on me
Lather it up until I'm covered
Then do it some more until I'm smothered
Stand in the humid Florida heat
Till it bakes into a rock-hard sheath
Call it art and pose for pics
Proceeds go to conservatives!
Run naked through the streets of Fallujah

Valentine's DayThat morning, when Ziggy Stardust saw the shimmering quilt being unpacked in the common room, all bets appeared to be off.Valentine's Day4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"This will look wonderful on my bed!" he cooed as he fingered the silver lame lace that edged the night-black satin quilt spangled with sequin stars, button moons, and velvet planets.
David heaved that particularly deep sigh that only Ziggy's antics brought out. "This isn't for you, Ziggy. The Astronettes may have sent it, but you're not the only one here with your eye on the stars."
"Well, whose is it then?" he asked with a pout.
"You'll see if you help us get it upstairs it's rather heavy."
Jealous but as ever unable to resist his curiosity, Ziggy helped David, Major Tom, and Pierrot carry it up to a particular bedroom...
"It's quite an accurate star chart," Major Tom whispered as they each took a corner of the quilt and slowly eased it onto the bed, not wanting to wake its weary occupant. "How long do you think it took the

"What makes you say that?" asked Sers, who had come into his room to borrow some hairspray.
"No one else here uses as much makeup as I do," Ziggy explained, "and I keep this room locked when I'm away. It would have to be someone with unnatural powers and a love of powders who'd manage to pinch my supplies!"
"Powers? Now, now, Ziggy, there's nothing that proves Scary Monster is an actual monster much less someone who can slip in and out of a room without being noticed. You're probably just so busy you're losing track of your supplies."

Falling deep into a slumber,
Here I stay,
There I lay.
When will it be my time?
Why do you, seem to be,
Like that one, who I held lovingly?
Two hearts, connected as one,
That guides everyone.
I know you can be strong.
Why do you feel wrong?
Why is your pain unheard?
I will be here, waiting forever.
Until you come, my love….
I will be waiting…
Here where I thought we can be free….
Those sky eyes, happily.
Never seem to lose their glow.
Yet I know,
I will have to go away.
I cannot leave you behind.
While darkness clouds your eyes.
Why is this true?
Because of you two,
I could smile,
In this world for awhile.
I could love again.
Don’t cry my friends.
I’ll always be here…
The Obstacle CourseThe second big challenge of the competition was the obstacle course! Here's a recap of the actionThe Obstacle Course4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The wall of stardom was an imposing first obstacle. Even without his magic, Jareth scaled it nimbly and took an early lead followed closely by Monte, who apparently is used to being on the run, and Glass Spider, who certainly takes after his namesake! As for the others, Newton and Pierrot's light, slender bodies gave them an advantage in this challenge, while Sir Roland Moorecock and Vendice Partners proved a little well, to be sensitive as possible, slower with regards to their physiques and came in last.
The moss garden leg literally kept the competitors on their toes. The Thin White Duke's anxiousness served him well, as he did not step on any of the mines. Lodger was nervy too, but though he did trigger a few mines he was not fazed by the explosions. As for Ziggy Stardust, who already had problems scali

Do you remember?
The fall season had finally settled down, but a constant warm breeze kept playing with the womans hair as she walked down the silent path filled with dead but colourful leaves. On each side of her, rows of tombstones were stoically reflecting the last sunrays of the day.
Step by step, the woman went further in the territory of the dead until she reached the end of the path. However, the purpose of her visit was still feet away. She had to cross more rows of tombstones which were beginning to be less organized, the stones being scattered around, breaking the symmetry of the previous ones.
The woman continued to walk on the cold grass, her feet barely making any sound, excepting the seldom crisping of the dead leaves. She walked forward until she reached a solitary tombstone. It was small, barely as glorious as the rest of the symbolic stones of the deceased, but it was clean and still polished, revealing its recentness. It also had a beautiful golden coloration be

Toby kicked against the door. Im already six, I do what I want!
Sarah pulled open the door and Toby fell forwards. A six year old kid lay on the ground. Blue piercing eyes bore in hers and blond soft hair fell over his forehead. He looked angry at her. Why do you always have to shout? You can say things normal, and she will hear you to, you know?
Why did you kicked my door? That was not necessary! She gritted her teeth.
Toby let his head fell to the ground. I dont know, I just dont like it when youre so angry. He said muffled.

"I'm ok" He said and climbed the stairs, hearing Marlene and Denzel laughing at some random TV show and pushing each other around. His lips curled up slightly in a small smile as he shook his head: he liked it here, it was peaceful, at least while the two kids were in school and Tifa was at the bar working. His job was going pretty well too, it provided him with enough gil to help Tifa with the essentials, buy the children a toy or two and still allow him afford a couple of things for his bike and himself. However, he was never at ease in his room, there was a constant presence there, lurking around the lifeless place, making the piece chilly and giving it a dark aura.

For my whole life I have thought of this moment.
When it would come, how it would happen.
It is my fate, so inevitable and inescapable.
Ive always known it would come.
Ive always be prepared.
But I never realized how much it would hurt him.
He can be like a child, when lost and fragile.
A man so strong, yet so weak.
I knew him so; I did not want to let him go.
The pain I would leave him would scar him.
The regret I would give him would burden him.
My decision would break him.
As I sunk deeper into the darkness,
I saw much sadness in his eyes.
The sight pained me much; I never saw him as such.
I wanted to reach out to him.
I wanted to let him know that I was okay.
But he would never know of my presence.

But I would never return; it was only later that he would learn:
We would never be together again.
