An Atlantic DivorceLies AdornedAn Atlantic Divorce8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A serrated sound
intruded our father - daughter
discussion, though my mind was far
from focused, manipulated
by comfort's trickery.
Your not-so-nimble fingers
fumbled with the flip-phone,
immediately wishing you hadn't;
"I love you.
My naive ideals were deceived
by the screen's pixels of white
and black - no shades of gray,
no room for doubt.
My mother's name is Michelle.
The pressure of adorned
lies rested upon my shoulders,
weighting my body below the surface.
With time the bubble ridden
water cooled, steam escaping
through the gaps from which my own
Ripples tamed, my comatosed
being unable to struggle.
Ice settled in place.
This bath-tub winter breezed
into summer: ice cracked and watered
just at the break of fall;
your lies faltered, and she knew.

It isn't the size of her breasts
Nor is it the way you dress
Love isn't your wealth
Love isn't the jerk
Love isn't sex
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is when you'll be there for him
Love is when you'll stay by his side
Love is when you'll spend eternity with him
Love is when you'll die for him
Love is to love
leitmotif(I will never forgive Millais for painting Ophelia calm in the water. My cousin Noah died shoeless and struggling under a lonely mans hands, his eyes full of rain runoff. Real people dont sink as pretty as oil on canvas: Noah was four feet five on the autopsy slab, no flowers, no frames. I am ruled by the aesthetic, but I would embrace his every imperfection if it meant having him back. This clumsy dilettante still loves Noah with the scabs on his shins, sitting sloppy at Sams recitals in sneakers and shorts. Give me the asymmetry of his eyelashes. For the first time in my life, the art is optional.leitmotif5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
There is a reason I keep this part peripheral: this is not about drowning. Boys in deep lakes know nothing of footholds, and Noah left the rest of us grateful for something to stand on. Don't expect closure. This is about hindsight. Today, we know that we are spoiled by floors.)

You sit on the porch to your house, flapping a handheld fan furiously in front of your face. There is a tall glass of iced tea next to you with exactly five cubes of ice, and you're wearing a loose Union Jack tank, shorts, and flip-flops. Your hair is pulled up into a ponytail (unless you have really short hair, in which case, it's loose), and you're humming a song you've had stuck in your head all day; it's by The Killers, but the name escapes your memory.
You see your neighbor, Alfred Jones, run down his driveway without a shirtone of the reason why you enjoy living in front of him and also a reason you can tolerate these insane temperatures.
He stops to get the mail, and he glances up at you, trying to block the sun with his hand. He waves.
"_______!" he yells.
You wave back.
He sprints across the street and slows down about halfway up your driveway. As he nears you, he blurts, "I hate your shirt!"
You chortle at that. "Arthur seems to like it."

A Spark In The Dark
After I had met you-
I found out that hope can be so wounding
And now I know what meaningful desires can do-
The pieces of my dreams are still crumbling
You made me fade in-and-out of your Heaven
Allowing me the taste of peace momentarily
And then right back to testing my withdrawing patience
While I plunge back into my same old Hell called: vulnerability
This feeling...is too raw
A tug of war between different kinds of torment
I'm missing you...so much
The rift between us seems to be infinite
Don't go...don't leave
Don't let go...of me
But when you left me for the last time-
I knew that the wrong kind of love can be so fucking addicting
I realized that you combined my truth with your lie-
You always made your words so fucking convincing
You forced me to despise what I will never have-

"What's going on?" You hear the confused yells and screams of terrified families and friends.
"It's the Earth. It's collapsing in on itself. The sky is going out, stars are disappearing. Don't you see it?" you reply calmly. The stranger that asked the original question looked at you, terrified and confused at your words and attitude.
"No! That was a myth! The government said it was a silly rumor!" they replied in denial. You avert your eyes from the ground to meet theirs. They are taken aback by the fear and sadness that filled them, after how calm and collected you sounded.

Maybe she couldn’t tell you the size of the universe or rattle off each planet within it, like some talkative bean poles, and maybe she couldn’t half-understand the Doctor’s ramblings and wasn’t as gung ho about history, like some h/c companions. But she could tell if a certain bean pole and a certain companion wanted to… to… dance around the maypole? God, never mind, the metaphor got away from her.
Point: Donna Noble wasn’t blind, not like the lovable idiots she travelled with. At least not when it came to the biggest, brightest elephant-in-the-TARDIS that trumpeted “Love Me Do" in their faces.
At first it had seemed a little questionable. Maybe she was over-reading things, being a little too set on seeing what she wanted to. Because of course she wanted to see it. The two of them deserved to be

Another lost life in the news or on tv
Due to the hate being spread
Leaving people scrambling through a world of dread
How is being discriminated against for who you are okay?
Just making it harder to get through each day
Being told it's immoral
And we'll burn in Hell fire
Driving people to the brink
Making the situation dire
Love is love, why can't you understand that?
It isn't a phase I can take off like a hat
Gender doesn't matter when it comes to emotion
So why do you hate us for showing that devotion?
Denying our rights like we're some kind of criminals
Bringing us down, making our feelings minimal
Pushing us right to the edge
Shoving some over the ledge
Never to return
Doesn't the loss bother you?
Are you ever gonna learn?
It isn't our "choice" that's sending us over
It's your intolerance of the gender of our lovers

The chill air plumed from her mouth as the horse cantered along the river’s shoreline. Spotting the ford to cross, Mira grinned, shot a look over to the other rider whose fair hair was flowing loose from any bonds, matching her steed’s pace easily. Kicking her heels into the horse’s ribs, Mira laughed as the horse bounded across the shallow water toward the snowy plains on the other side. The horse wickered at the sudden freedom of running. Mira could hear a yell coming from Ulfric as he urged his horse to chase after her.
They ran wildly over the snowy plain sparkling pristinely in the pale sunshine, enjoying the bit of freedom from war, politics, and the troubles of the land. It was if they were transported back twenty years when they were young and doing the same chase. Mira swerved her horse, to which Ulric laid a parallel run to Mira. Slapping the reins, Ulfric le

What was this game to you? You know, other than countless hours being wasted . Other than that, there really is no significant reason to be attached to the game.
You didn't have a significant hold on the game, your friends pretty much just made you play it at one point. Although you particularly liked using a bow and arrow on enemies. Made you feel safer with Creepers and Endermen running around.
But you rarely thought about what it was truly like inside the game though, in the system. What did the world look like from your avatar's perspective? What did your avatar see?
You see boxes on the surface of your screen. Trees. Houses. Even water. Just cubic boxes.
To your little avatar though, the world was different. It was more like reality, the world that you lived. Animals were real in the game so if you needed food, you'd have to kill. If the game was luckily set on peaceful, you didn't worry about killi
EndermanAs the young blond traced small details onto her map, she wiped a bit of sweat from her brow. For early fall, it sure was hot... Or perhaps that was just the heat of the furnace getting to her? Sighing, Fleet dropped her quill and stood up, dragging her hand through her short, fluffy hair. The day had been long, and the evidence of this was all over her body- Dirty clothes, a small smudge of coal dust on her left cheek... Not to mention the fact that her hands were stained with ink. But all the dirt, all of that dust had been worth it. It was always worth it. Sitting back down again, she didn't even notice the sun setting as she her mind floated in the lala land that most refer to as reverie. Nor did she notice the tall shadow striding towards her house, a diamond block in hand.Enderman3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

You swim back to the surface of the water with a huge gasp for air. You play around in the water a little bit, unaware of something watching you under the water.

Mysterious as a distant star
Red like my love.

Fleet tilted her head and took the block, looking into the Enderman's eyes. It stared back and seemed to quiver a little, but it could still move. Why? Just... Why?
The answer was because it liked those big bright blue eyes, and the shiny hair. The Enderman wondered whether or not the hair was soft. Fleet didn't understand why it was staring at her hair... Did it want to pet her or someth- Her question was answered as it raised it's hand to her head and ran it through her short hair. It sent a small shock through her, jolting her body.

The one who suckled from your breast
Showed you her first missing tooth
And hated you too

And thrown away the key to my door

In need of a repair

To get me tuned
Wired back into the shape

Can you not handle who I now am?
Can you not help me yourself?
Can you not show me the unconditional love
You promised me from birth?
Do you ever consider the possibility
Of this thought process
Being one of the reasons
That I shattered
A reason that I built up so man
