I wanted to pluck my ribs
from out my chest &
hang them about my house
like wind chimes-
a taunt for hungry wolves.
I didn’t grab for sharp objects,
I just wrote about it.
I never knew
I wanted to be a writer
until I lost something.
I still don’t know what that is-
(my mind, maybe.)
they fill gaps
that had no stories
to keep them
from hollowing out
in the first place.

Note: this is the first time i've ever written shti about the kids. Im sorry if it is terrible.
...nervously laughing. Yep, there's John. You feel kinda bad for him since he usually is a very happy and silly pranster, but even still he can be an asshole at times, meaning to or not. You watch him splash in the puddles and up your driveway with a tiny umbrella you let him use last time it rained. Even though he was under the small thing he was soaked and trembling.
"H-Hey ______, l-lovely w-weather i-isn't it?" he chattered through his cheeky smile and you get up.
"So beautiful John," you wrap the blanket around him and lead him inside.
"Th-thanks," he huddled into the blanket and left the umbrella outside. You disappeared then came back with a towel, but before he could grab it, you fling it over his head and ruffle his short, wet black hair into it.
"H-hey stop it!" he pulled the towel off and took his glasses with it, pouting adorably,

The beautiful white embroidery and stictchings ont your custom-made dress had dirtied to a grimy brown coloring and torn slightly at the hem. You had lost both of your shoes while being dragged off that fateful day and your feet had gotten splinters from the moist and splintery wood below you.
The sea tossed the ship, making you tumble to the side and falling on the floor. This has happened various times since being trapped below the deck. Above, you heard the captain barking orders, footsteps and other voices.
Every now and then, a crew member would come down to feed you the slop they fed. Though they probably ate extravagantly, you were stuck eating what you believed were leftovers.
The floorboards above you leaked salty water as you heard the familiar captain b

You chuckled, smiling at the Sopor-covered clown in front of you. You have been cooking some Sopor pie with Gamzee, who had scared himself while holding the pie. He had stepped on one of his many clown horns, making him jump into the air. He landed on his rear shortly thereafter, the pie landing on his head, covering him with Sopor slime. Though, in order for it to land on his head, the pie tin had to get skewered by his horns.
You smiled and wiped the Sopor off of his face. He smiled back at you, chuckling. “Thanks my motherfuckin wicked sis.” He said.
“Anytime my Sopor-tasting purple blood.” You replied. Gamzee smiled and looked you up and down. You looked just like a female Karkat. That was because you were a silver blood, a much rarer blood color than red. It had no place on the hemospectrum at all. This was mainly because your blood color gave

Do you know the taste of the universe?One day, when you’re five years old and made out of fractured sunlight and mirror shards, you sit down on the bench of the MAX train. You’re dressed in your winter coat and boots that are too big and one of your parents has pulled your hat too close over your ears.Do you know the taste of the universe?2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
You’re sitting next to your mother, and on the other side is a man that smells like loneliness, something that you’ll later know as cigarettes and alcohol and homelessness. He’s crying quietly into the top of his jacket and you’re scared to look because you’ve never seen an adult cry.
The train ride goes on for five minutes, which is a long time to you, and eventually you sneak a look at the crying man who smells like Portland and loneliness, and he sees you. He leans down until you can see the red lines in his eyes and he whispers to you.
“Do you know the taste of the universe?”
And you look up at him with your little-girl eyes and shake your head because you can’t

"Well, look at this," he said, leaning down to the boy's eye level, "you've brought me a present."
Link glared at the large man, the urge to spit in his face was almost overwhelming.
"I've been waiting for this for a long time " he continued to stare into the boy's eyes. "Now I just have to decide what to do with you."
Ganondorf straightened up and started to walk slowly around Link and the two Bokoblins that held his arms. Link turned his head to follow his enemy's movements, not wanting him to be out of sight.
"I could kill you right now if I wanted." he continued his walk, eyeing the boy as he did.
Link started to struggle again.
"I could tie you to an anchor and let you go in the sea."
Link continued trying to break free, but he was held tight.

“(y/n)! I need to talk with you for a moment!”
Rolling onto your side, you sat up on the bed, rubbing your eyes. You quickly glanced to the clock. 6:30 p.m. You had slept for 3 hours. Pushing your self up from the bed, which took much more effort than it should have, you groggily made your way to the Kitchen. Your mother was still seated at her desk, her hands folded, she gestured for you to take a seat in the little dining chair in front.
“What’s wrong mom?” You asked precociously, slowly sitting down.
“It’s about tomorrow. I have to go and do some work for a client a couple towns over, and I won’t be back until an hour after you get home. Just make sure you have your key okay? I don’t want you to forget.”
A Crack of LightSo this morning I felt like a crab with too much sand stuffed in his earsA Crack of Light3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I wanted the salt of the ocean to just pour from my face
I lugged these pounds of sand tied to my hands and feet
Like a hot air balloon without a course
I was drowning in my own air, ungrounded
And I had somehow swallowed my fist as I went through the numbing motions
It seemed like I couldn't handle the little things
I was plaguing myself with my own pain
And the angry syrup flowing through my brain was like
A diabetic low on sugar, yet it was thick with the stuff
When you can't imagine climbing out of your heartbroken cell
Time seems to run all tortoise-like
Everyone hares in circles about you
Neither dream nor nightmare nor wake is your wake
In truth joy and discovery is simply slumbering a little longer
Peace works so hard that his muscles are fighting the lactic acid inside
Because the reality is
Peace can't exist without lots of pain
Without all of that, none of this purity could exist

we unpacked the car in hundred-and-ten degree heat
home after our three-months, big-haul supermarket run
stared at the late season watermelon
we grabbed on an impulse
I got the cutting board and a bowl for rinds
you got the never-dull, wedding-gift ceramic knife
we tore into our pieces at the same time
swamping desert thirst in southern fruit
pretending we were comfortably cool
believing it during each bite
I opened a new paper towel roll (we had been out)
you gave me the next slice, cut yourself another
we ate the whole damn thing in one sitting, not talking
just munching one icy wedge after another
until I mumbled a joke you made me repeat
(had to slurp-swallow to do it)
I said, “I said, I think this makes us—”
you, with a fresh juice smile, finished: “—a couple of fruits.”

"Copy that HQ." replied another voice again heard over the radio. Corporal Adrian Shephard sat on the passage section of the airplane and watched the cliffs go by through the a window on the door across from him.
"Do any of you guys know where we're going?" asked a soldier next to the door.
"Well, the pilot thought we were going to your mother's house. So far this all looks familiar Carl." replied another soldier that sat next to him. He laughed a little at his stupid joke.
"Yeah, that's real cute Jack." said Carl sarcastically.
"Any time, any where." Jack said back to him. Shephard continued looking out the window. He was trying to figure out where they were going. His commanding officer didn't tell him where they were going, what their mission was, or anything. Just told them to gear up and put them on this plane.

not as reaching branches to climb
but as a resource with a purpose
something to nickel and dime
when did the castles in our imaginations
become the lifeless four walls
of the cubicles that house the
mindless drones that wander empty halls
when did my fairy tale fantasies
stop enriching my mind
and begin to enclose me
and leave the child behind
and why did no one tell me
that growing up would look like this?
that one day I would gaze back
at the photos of everything I miss
