I could have saved you.
I know you promised me you’d save yourself,
But I should have known you were lying.
I could have protected you.
I know you said you were fine,
But I should have been able to see all the tears behind your eyes…
The lies, I should have seen straight through them,
I should have known better than to believe you,
I should have known better.
I should have known.
I should have saved you...
I'm sorry Mommy.
I shouldn't have let you save yourself.

Mermaid Bones - a beat poem.
I'm hiding an ocean of teeth under my scales
it's in the forbidden taste of salt on my tongue
the weight of the measuring tape,
of those numbers pushing bubbles through my blood and through my gums.
It's written on the circumference of my waist.
In the words cursing the ghost ship of my shape being plundered against my will.
It's spoken by the fish telling me that I have no right to fill my gills with oxygen
underneath a sea bed of regret laid heavy with the shape of a tail.
You are a whale they said
and they made me push my bones out to see the fish bones that they could wish on
to beach myself on the sand reaching for a reason to say "no"
I will not make sandcastles out of sandwiches, and pick at the entrails of the jellyfish noodles on my plate on the first date with puberty that said
"you will now be endowed with an oyster set with strings of pearls that hang heavy round your throat like a

They Also Serve Who Only Stand and WaitI don't know when we first went underground. I don't even know if it was one mass exodus, a swarm of mankind trickling through the earth's crust so vehement we carved our own caverns by the force of trampling feet, or whether it was a gradual process, perhaps even a repetitive one, a family here, a neighborhood there. For all I know, the echo of the damp subterranean machine has always reverberated off the cave walls, created long past by the Angels, who think of our well-being even while they shake their heads helplessly at our flaws.They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
They say that those who remained on the surface were raptured away in a great flash of light, like a million suns converted into raw energy all at once. While it was rumored once that the flash was our doing, our own horrid creation, we all know better now. It was the Maker who brought it forth from the void and cast it onto the earth's crust, as though shot from an immense sling, taking only those who were brave enough to trust in Him.

Author Note: This story has Iggy [England] in it~
You look around you. You were inside a white room, full with people. Everyone was busy moving around, preparing for something. You went to the nearest person and asked,
"Um...excuse me. What happening?"
The girl looks at you and replied with a sly smile "Haven't you heard,______? Alfred and Elizabeth are getting married!"
"Eh?!" you exclaimed. "What? When? How?"
The girl just gave you grin and left to do something else.
"Here comes the bride! Here comes the bride!" you heard someone singing.
Everyone sat down quickly; you were the only one standing. You saw Alfred in a tuxedo; he was smiling to ear to ear. You heart was in pain again and you chest felt tight. 'He can't get married...No that not right!' you thought. You saw Elizabeth going closer to Alfred. You quickly ran to him, but he seems farther with every single step you took.

"Alfred, are sure you want to see this?"
It was noisy Saturday night, people up and down the streets. Alfred made you go to the movies with him. You expected him to see some dumb,funny movie but it wasn't. Instead it was a really,bloody movie. You glanced at Alfred, he was standing quite normal, but knowing him, deep inside he was about to cry. You stiffly laughed, as you walk to the ticket booth. 'Arthur is going to kill me for doing this to Alfred.'
"Two ticket to (random scary movie.)"
"Here you go, m'am."
You thanked the man, and went to grab Alfred. Every since you were little, you two always watched scary movies. It really didn't frighten you, but to Alfred.... It was like someone coming to kill him. That was the reason you didn't want to see the movie, Alfred will pee in his pants just seeing the first 30 seconds. Alfred happily skipped to the front row of the screen. 'He d

And when I think back to the day when we first
Stumbled across one another, red sneakers hanging off gutters
Cherry cola voice overs and dilated pupils
We led one another on to believe in the night sky of connect the dot constellations
You wanted to dissect me and peer into the insides of my lungs
Only to find witches breath and dandelions
Slicing iron vowels you locked your hands in mine
And we fell into the static of dreaming disease
The operating table broke away to reveal a sky that never existed
And we couldn't help but laugh at the irony
Because wishing was never an option
The anesthesia never seemed to fit in our veins anyway.

A Walk Into An OceanShe's walking into a cold bitter seaA Walk Into An Ocean6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She can feel the icy water touch her on the knee
She continues to walk further and further
Then it starts to hurt her
Her veins freezing like ice
At first the coldness felt nice
But then it makes her veins turn darker blue
And thats when her uncaring thoughts grew
She's shivering and cannot stop
And soon she hears a pop
She falls deeper and deeper under the water
She starts to wonder if somebody saw her
Gasping for a breath and pleading for a rest
Sinking to the bottom and curled in a nest
With her eyes closed and unable to breathe
Then she sinks and goes deeper underneath
She's at her watery grave
It would have been better if she would have been saved
It's a walk into an ocean nobody will forget
Now she is laying in her underwater pit

Look at the wounds to know, where i've been
Throwing me against, my own walls
But I've learned to fly, when i fall
And I know my scars are only on the surface
And I know that I, I, I am not worthless
No matter how they break me, i'm unbreakable
No matter how they hurt me, i'm invincible
You know a heart
Keeps on bleeding
When it breaks it goes on beating
I, I'll keep on keeping on
'Cause my scars prove you, wrong.

I was blinded by a feeling I believed to be
love for you. But as it turned out, the only
emotion I was bound to was the twisted
conformities I and so many others believed
affection was made up of.
Though I knew that I no longer loved you
(if I ever had the pleasure of feeling such a
powerful string of vehement thoughts), I
continued the façade that enabled me to
convince both myself and you that there
was still something there.
I had to persuade you that you didn’t love
an empty shell masking as a human being
capable of feeling, but that the love I was
so sure I had lost still appeared to be
burning inside of me – bright as a forest
fire and twice as hard to put out.
My insides were burning up not from this
fake fire I worked so hard at pretending
was there, but from the future I somehow
found myself able to predict. You were
destined to fall more in love with me – a
big mistake on your part – and when the
courage finally met me to end it, I woul

So she arrives in a flourish of exasperations,
telling me all the family business,
waving her nails in my face

"Do you think we need yellow concealer?
I plan to take pictures,
and the last thing I want
is to remember him
every time I look back,
the purple ghost

"It's not a problem.
Just close your eyes;
when you open them,
you'll never be able to tell
he touched you.
Maybe you'll forget him
in a couple years,
as time washes by
and new experiences
dull what has already passed."
She sets her purse on the table
shaking her head.

It's all you'll get,
Rot my body,
From inside out.
Plague my mind,
With memories of you,
Despite being blind,
You saw right through.
Those walls that I built,
They now crumble down,
Try to re-build,
But is that what you want now?.
You relish no love,
Crave to be shot.
So leave my walls down,
Show what's inside,
Inspires a frown,
But that's my other side.
So take a bullet,
Blow my rotten brains,
Onto the carpet,
Used to be grey.
Now is red,
Now I'm dead.
