There it lies before me. Silently criticising me. Mocking me. Motionless. An orb. Large. Round. And very. Very. Blue.
This is not the first time I have come face to face with this foe. Nor will it be the last. Soon I shall annihilate him! And the safety of humanity will fall upon me. Tiddle's the superior!
Well what did you think I was going to say? Do you really think there are such things as super heroes? Don't be silly! Kittens however. We exist. Sadly not all of us have homes and we are forced to roam the streets, keeping those nasty rodents and their diseases at bay. Sadly, though, your human minds do not see us as the reliable cleaners we are, you see us on the streets and assume we are worthless or broken.
However, back to the orb. I'm not allowed to touch the orb. O

Must Love Cats
Fur of gold to pet and rub,
Perfect cat for me to love,
Razor claws and pointed teeth,
All the better made to keep,
A quick brush along silky fur,
Rewarded with a rumbling purr,
Given a glancing nuzzled kiss,
He is mine and I am his.

Praise the invisible
Because He cannot hurt you
Listen to the man
and do as he says
to avoid a fiery end
to keep you sitting up straight
You think you are willing
Because your daddy said so
Don't you wanna see mom again
Tie your hair up tight
and close your knees
Smile with your teeth
your jaw tight
What you say is wrong
So listen well child
and I'll tell you how to live.

“Get the fuck out of my house.”
“What?! Why?!” Your American boyfriend demanded.
You picked up his shoes and threw them outside. “I can’t believe you would do that to me, AGAIN! You betrayed me! LIAR! TRAITOR!”
“I swear I didn’t mean to!” Alfred wailed and stubbornly hung onto the doorframe as you worked on pulling him from your house.
You growled and pulled harder. “You say that every time, you jackass, and I always believe you, and then you go ahead and break your promises that ‘you’ll never do it again’ or ‘you didn’t mean to’. They just fall into your lap every single time!” You furiously, and finally successfully, yanked him from the front door, and went tumbling onto the front lawn with him.

Some Things Never End Nalu- Ch.4Lucy’s mind was drifting off as she stood in the middle of the train station. The bustling people and all of the noise were blurred out to her eyes and ears. Her only thought was what awaited her at the outskirts of Crocus. Would her husband to be, be a nice man? Or would he turn out to be just like his mother and father? Her mind told her it would be the latter. She shook those thoughts off and decided to wait until she got there to deal with it.Some Things Never End Nalu- Ch.43 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I wonder if they got my note….
It had broken her heart to write those words, but it was necessary. If they were all to live happy lives, and continue on with their missions, if the only price was for her to be married to a man she didn’t love, then that would be fine with her. It was fine as long as the man she truly did love was alright.
Though, she wasn’t foolish enough to believe that they would immediately be okay without her. She knew that they all loved her like family. Hell, they were family. But, they

and her surroundings. It was like she had faded out
into a world of her own. And then one day you figured out that she wasn't looking up at that dreaded sky or down at the ground which was too solid for her tastes. She always had this feeling that it would swallow her whole if she let her guard down, and early on already, you w

Though, it was probably better that she was alone. Her whole body had shaking with sadness from her departure from home, shaking with the wondering if she would ever see it again.
And what made it all the more painful was that Natsu had been the last person she saw. Lucy's mind kept thinking about if kissing him, and mouthing she loved him was a good thing to do. Though, she didn’t regret it one bit. The only worry was that he would take that as an invitation to come after her, which would mean that all of what she was doing would be for nothing.

time purloined and left
hanging on the bed posts.
You said I crowd your sleep,
feet and hands slipping cotton,
pulling dreams in paper streams
like the nest of wasps
growing restless in the tree.
Your legs make room for me,
for the sound of weather
happening on the roof,
and warm the space above us,
setting fire to the drapes again.
Just let me feel your clavicle
press under my hips
where daylight squeezes in
and hinges us.
So we both can waken slowly,
you know, like kids in summer
who long for everything to never end
and the sky to be an orchestra

I'm Soaring Now
This is a different level of fear
It's wounding my truth and morality
It's strong enough to bring me here
On the edge of life- peering over to serenity
It's not impossible to grasp
But it's typical to assume
The last breath is the fact
That after death- peace will follow soon
Countless flashing memories
Ready to be set free
From this skin of...treachery
My scars peel off
Erased from my sight
The remains become soft
So this is what...innocence feels like
Destiny is somehow connected
Fate deems to be natural
The circle of the two is perfected
The beginning to the end is...peaceful
I offer and accept my own form of mercy
Before I miss out on forgiving the vulnerable side of me
Splitting and fusing fragments of calming memories
I would like to believe my life was somehow worthy

Frail songs born on air and dying

Ana, my lover. When it first began, I saw her only for a brief moment. I walked past a mirror, she was there in a moment and gone in a flash. She was beautiful; she was a bird boned structure with sharpened edges to cut into your heart. Her image lingered with me and so I searched everywhere.

The special girls said that she had to choose me, that I had to be special to be in her presence. She was treated as a god to some and others just seen her as a degenerative disease.
I just saw her as something gorgeous.
The flash of her bones would become more frequent and I was delighted. She never stayed for long though,she would take off into the shadows and I was left crying for her. I would become more anxious after seeing her leave, what if I would never see her beautiful face again? What if she thought I wasn't special enough for her?

a universe condensed into one human body
and it’s no wonder that sometimes you dream of escape.
You tell me that you’re restless,
itching to get back to your home in the living sky
and that your heart is turbulence,
your centre is molten core.
You and I, at this second,
are a burst of summer, a shivering grass-stalk,
the first treble note in a starlet’s cry.
We are only a fraction of what we were and will be.
Millions of years of evolution have gone into a single muscle’s twitch.
This moment is always as small and as large as we need it to be
so make my hands your molten centre
as they tremble on your skin.
You are safe. You are now. You are here.

caught in her little worlds,
cursed by the moonlight, dying in the twilight –
and the darken figure within her dreams
and the stories she spins of courageous men
end only in tragedies
(melodies are lost).
but the little bird which rests in her hands
awakens her from within,
hope fills her lungs, her heart, her soul –
when the time arrives and her bird sings
the softest tune,
she will become imprisoned
Depression and I are Fuck BuddiesWhen I was young I made a friend.Depression and I are Fuck Buddies2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She was kind of quiet-
a loner, like me.
She wore a long cloak of stars and melodies
that would wrap around us both when she got close.
As we got older
we became closer-
until she was all I could see.
She gave me words of comfort,
whispered when no one was around.
And I would hold her close,
Keeping her curled up inside.
Even when she was mean,
I would forgive her.
If she made me cry,
I would hold her closer.
We are never apart for very long,
though the people around us would try
and rip us from each other’s grasp.
She would simply disappear
for hours or days or months.
And soon she would sneak in my bedroom
with her cloak of starlight and music
and hold me in a lovers’ embrace.
The DeserterI've wandered far too long tonight.The Deserter3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm left adrift, the coward's flight -
an outcast from society.
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
Stripped of my honor and my name;
accused by all, I bear the blame.
This blasted heath from which I flee -
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
The greatest prize for which I strived,
my fellow soldiers gave their lives.
Three white feathers given to me -
I close my eyes and dream of thee.
Branded guilty, without bail,
handcuffed in irons, cast in gaol-
no longer shall I wander free.
I close my eyes and dream of thee
And after sundown, cut me loose,
an offering to the hangman's noose.
If there's a God, he'll hear my plea -
I close my eyes and dream of thee

And laughs when there is no joke
She runs away from the rain
And dances in cigarette smoke
Pictures never capture
The whisps of silver hair
Surrounding her face
And following her everywhere
She never dreams when she sleeps
Only when she's holding booze
She drives around in the prairie hills
With a childish smile
After all, what has she got to lose?

bled through the paper walls that you’d left
in hope that no one would peel back your layers
and find you at your softest spot.
I saw that nothing makes you radiant. You just are.
Today, I traipsed through galleries
that promised to show me something sublime.
You spoke and I learned how to breathe around you
and that simple thing felt like dancing.
If anything is incredible, you are.
Today you gave me vermilions and ultramarines
to begin to fill in a picture of you
but you’re not a scene behind a stained-glass window.
You’re indefinable and indestructible.
Today I learnt to see life as beautiful, because you are.
