Habitual PatternsCircles, always circles. The juncture of an end and beginning, bringing about lightheadedness, which too becomes cycles of circles; spinning and twisting. Trapped in dizzy revolutions; a prison of the infinite, holding and containing like rope rubbing raw bruises and scars. There's no room for escape, for breath, or thought, just an oval path that lures desperate feet, slapping their shoes off pavement as they outrun themselves, but arrive nowhere.Habitual Patterns3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
And I'm guilty as charged: a marathon runner motivated solely by the buzzing desperation of fear. I outrun my footsteps, my shadow and thoughts myself; I'm so sick of circles, their continuous lines of motion that stir bile and saliva. They get me nowhere nothing; just disoriented thoughts, and an overwhelming sense of vertigo.

Vein and artery cradled me
Within open womb;
The origin of safety and adulation.
and so I burrowed, nestled
finally accepted into your heart

Tu si eu.
Ma uit la tine si parca ma vad pe mine.
Tu te uiti la mine si ai vrea sa fiu tu.
Stiu ca eu sunt faurit din tine, dar nu vreau sa recunosc asta.
M-as simti vulnerabil.
Tu esti sensibil. Foarte sensibil.
Eu nu plang in public.
Cum as putea eu sa recunosc ca eu sunt parte din tine?
Imi e frica. Acesta e secretul existentei mele:ca eu sunt tu...
Sa nu ma tradezi,te implor...caci daca faci asta, vom muri amandoi.
Ne vom muta intr-o stea.
Vom exista, intr-un fel sau altul, impreuna.
Oare cat de bine ne-am intelege tu si eu, eu si tu pentru o eternitate doar noi...?
Tu esti sincer.
Eu pretind ca sunt .
Tu ma certi,eu ma fofilez.
Iarta-ma,dar nu vreau sa mor.
Ar insemna sa te ucid pe tine.si nu pot!
Te iubesc. Tu ma iubesti? da?!? chiar daca te reneg?
Iti sunt recunoscator...

Candva vom fi doar noi.

those same goals that slowly change to dreams,
reflected in your eyes not just the aspirations

The smallest of smiles,

UnfoundedI cram words within murky, hollow spaces,Unfounded3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
replicating ways in which blood fills a wound.
I squeeze articles and adjectives
supporting metaphors and similes
into tight-fitting corners,
until that which is empty begins to bloat.
The ache of something missing,
the loss of one internal, now painfully unknown:
it finds no satisfaction within passion
and phrases so desperately created, upheld.
Why give transparent, misleading hope
Does pleasure derive from humiliation
the catalyzing of previously weakened hearts?
Where is the limit of cruelty defined,
if not in the cries and weeping of dreams:
Language wilts on my fingertips,
turns to ash in my mouth
the gorge in my throat which partakes in
how significant is agony endured within silence,
inside pitiful thoughts?
It is nothing notable of specific emotion,
only biting veracities upon repetition
and foolish belief:
"I am no poet of words."

Let it be known I died loving You, my dear.

Divine energy trickles grimly through the arteries,
Crackling wildly in his veins like overcharged batteries...
The power-hungry presence is a majestic hall of illusion,
But the pure aberrance inspires disgusted confusion!
The far-flung fancy of this new desire,
Shifting like the archaic Model-T,
Turns his scholarly engine into an intellectual fire,
Grasping and reaching for fuel constantly.
His living, beating scholarly heart,
Merely a crystalline orb containing fiery passion,
Yearns for companions of a similar fashion,
And waits anxiously for that joyous time to start!
For the sweet, numbing taste of camaraderie,
For any discussion, be it friendly.
Turn me on to your deviation and interest, said the Maddest Construct,
For I love to see your best, for the power of Art is hardly defunct.
Burying SeptemberIf you were a person, then I'mBurying September3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
something you've forgotten; something inadvertently lost,
discarded on damp, cobblestone walkways where tattered
beggars are just lingering sympathies.
I think I now can relate to unintended loners,
the ones more enforced than observed
Lost within themselves, as I remain lost in darkness;
They without company, and I without you.
If those like you are people too,
then they are all virtual, resembling you with acute precision;
your glow, your warmth, your light,
all which bring about feelings of belonging, and correctness
Yet I find myself abutted to clinking cans lacking of change,
huddled within people-filled corners
beneath tender aches of darkness.
Forever searchingstudying, passerby upon passerby,
eyes half blind to hopeful light;
they've adjusted to comfort of night,
and shady withdrawal.
Maybe we're no longer yours to claim.
Maybe you've given us up,
like ash to the wind.

What if I held you like you were made of glass
And out of my dreams you would never pass
I'd like to think you'd know just what love is and was
Because in my arms I'd show how to really love and be loved
My world would be complete
If I could just lay at your feet
And tell you all that you mean to me
Oh how my heart and soul would be so free
I think a love like this would stand a chance
And be more than just a simple little romance
I would take you and hold and never let you go
I would never let this love grow cold if you'd only say so
My heart feels like a fire is waking from a dark cold slumber
And if you touched my chest you would certainly fall under
The spells of my love yes my love that's who you would be
Just say the word and I will be your everything
I'll even take the time to learn what makes your heart truly sing
I'll be your everything if you would swear upon all you hold dear
That you'll never fall out of love with me not once ever you hear
Cause with my love in yo

You know it's gonna be a bad night when the stairs freak you out, when you want to barricade your door because the stairs freak you out. The stairs are right outside your door, and they freak you out and you don't know why but they do because it's a bad night.

It looked exactly like Hanatamago did in the anime, a white puffball with glittering black eyes.
But it was strangely warm, like it was alive.
Geez, talk about having a Stephen King imagination. Next thing you be thinking is that it would come alive at night and eat you.

You tried to toss it onto the bed. But it wouldn't budge, because it was stuck on your hand.

Well shit, you couldn't cut your arm off (And didn't want to) So now

Hakoda wrapped his arms around his children and looked into their shining blue eyes. They sparkled in the sunlight just like Kya's did. The wind whipped Katara's long hair and softly brushed his face. He took a deep breath and embraced his children more tightly. And as the three of them stood there, the wind whipping their clothes and making them sway ever so gently, they could feel her presence and their hearts swelled with love and relief, and at last the bitter emptiness that had haunted them for so long drifted away with the wind.
Finally Hakoda gently broke the peaceful silence,
"I know your mother would be proud of you."

Ororo loved it there, loved the delicious familiar warmth and having her beloved plants around her. It had always, she told him, been her private sanctum. Her place to escape too.
When he'd asked tentatively if she didn't mind that he 'd 'invaded' that sanctum she'd laughed quietly at him and pressed a burning kiss to his cheek.
Now they sat as they did on most evenings, too close together for decorum and talked in the low whispers only used by lovers and thieves.
Yet they were not what the wildfire scandal of the school rumour mill made them out to be…he had never even kissed her. Yet there were other things, other things he knew he shouldn't dwell on- the touches she would bestow on him and no one else, the way she would press his hand as she leaned in to whisper a secret from her childhood or how she took his ar

I don't want to be the one who "might or could have been"

Because I'm not there.
And of this fog with which I've been ensnared-
How to escape it, I am unaware.
For life I do not feel prepared...
And I am scared. I am scared.
Then I feel that jump in my chest
That always seems to get the best
And there's the quiet pitter-patter
That really doesn't matter,
The former's just withdrawal.
The latter means that I'm still living.
I wrote this on the paper by my bed
Where I sometimes laugh, and sigh, and weep, and sometimes wish that I was dead.
But the former's just withdrawal,
And the latter means that I'm still living.

She was pushed to the muddy paddle on the ground. Her disguise torn apart, the red paint from her face was washed away by the pouring rain. She coughed as she tried to pull herself up with her tied hands only to be dragged on her knees facing the sneer of one of her attackers.
He was rather harmless looking, really the weaker from the two men. But fury shone in his golden eyes above a bruise on his face that was caused by her previous water whip. A failed attempt to get away.
