Seducing your toes to step closer, wade further
Its a cool day, and I offer warmth and comfort
Begging you to swim, even though you know
That danger lurks with me
I entice your senses,
A single dance with the darkness
A sway into danger,
Cant be that bad,

Let the sun slide of your face
Lose identity and purpose
Lose the never ending race
For a brief and sacred moment
Hear the river softly sway
Feel your skin embrace the torrent
Watch your troubles float away
Feel the water tug your hair out
In the rolling, rhythmic tide
See like ghosts the sparkling lake trout
Feel them splay your fingers wide
Let your feet float up above you
As your fingers brush the ground
Listen, as this glowing vacuum
Twists and wrinkles every sound
As you float beneath the surface
Feel your spirit bob along
Into some ethereal heaven
Captured in the rivers song
In that single stillest silence
When the current arches strong
Lose yourself, and lose your purpose
Listen to the river's song
WaterAll I asked was for a single glass of water. A glass, a cup, an ounce, a single drop would be enough. I knew you could see me dying there, my body draining itself of whatever resources were left, I know you heard me crying in the night, wasting precious tears in the hope of a little mercy. I licked them away as they fell as best as I could. I couldn't afford to waste them. It was a wonder I could produce tears at all, and there came a day when they finally stopped.Water6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
And I thought you had broke, when you came to me in the day, when the sun stole what little I tried to preserve. You held the thing I craved, you held life as far as I was concerned, and I drank without thinking, and you watched as I threw it up and convulsed. You tipped over a bucket of rainwater and watched me lap it up from the floor like a dog.
I asked for food. A crust, a crumb, anything to end the pain in my stomach. You gave me meat, stinking and crawling with maggots. You gave me bread hard as stone, my feeble

I can take it away again.
A little of me is never enough,
but too much will kill you.
I am a sculptor,
carving new landscapes.
A mover of mountains,
even if only a few pebbles at a time.
I am a rare treasure,
a jewel in the desert,
though taken for granted
many other places.
I flow, I ripple,
I can freeze time.
I fall from the skies,
run from the mountains,
wash upon distant shores.
Complex and simple at turns.
A thing of reality and of myth.
The only thing I fear is man,
and what you do to me.
I am water...

Pairing: none, Cloud centered
Rating: cute and worksafe
Summary: Cloud finds two familiar pets. Or maybe they find him.
"Sorry little friend. This one is mine." Gently but firmly Cloud nudged the big dog aside with his knee and took another bite of his hotdog. His stomach grumbled with hunger and the hotdog was just as he liked it; hot and spicy and covered with onions and ketchup. Shiva knew where Midgar street vendors even got meat for their hotdogs these days but it was just the thing after a long day of deliveries.
A whine and a scratch at his leg made him look down again. Huge, liquid blue eyes stared up at him. The dog pawed at his leg again, whining and licking its chops. It was a big dog, huge even, with a ragged black fur and the signs of a hard life on the street apparent in a few scars but it didn't seem aggressive. The bushy tail wagged and the almost exaggerated behaviour made it look like a puppy. If it was a puppy, then Cloud feared to s

It's tough not to sound soppy.
Honestly, I'm not used to having this. I'll never really be used to it. I'd been lonely for a long time before I met you. I didn't think I'd have the kind of relationship that you watch on the cinema screens or read about in novels. I genuinely thought I'd be alone forever.
How wrong I was.
You smiled at me as I walked into Falmer bar and we made eye contact. I returned the gesture nonchalantly. It had been a hard day so far four hours of academic obligations back to back. Getting up for 10am was still a struggle, even in my third year.
Your smile stuck in my head as I faced away from you, leaning against the bar counter. I ordered a portion of cheesy chips and walked through to the sofas in the back bar, grateful for an oppo

I take whoever I can
give me a life, I'll take any,
but a swift death isn't the plan.
The way I go about my killing
is not for the faint of heart,
it will give your blood a good chilling.
Once I'm done, they'll roll you off in a cart.
At first you won't notice
but you'll learn quickly
You'll see how bad I can be
Soon, you'll start to look sickly.
Your body will become weak
and your bones will show,
through your weakened physique.
Despair is all you will know.
You'll only care for your next meal
or your next glass of water,
but pain is all you will feel.
Soon you'll beg for the slaughter.
You'll look dead
long before Death comes.
Your only wish will be for bread,
but you'll even beg for crumbs.
Hunger is my spear
with it, I will make your fields barren
and your strength disappear
for I am Famine.

Somewhere...in the ocean
There is a whirlpool...that is...frozen
I no longer had anything keeping me bound to this world
You were my love, you were my chain, and my heart was a link
And I couldn't bear the thought of never seeing your face anymore
So my knees gave, as I let my thoughts break, and I forced myself to sink
Somewhere...in the darkness
There is a soul...which became faithless
All those memories down the drain
I feel the bitterness of hope
While my tears rain
I cannot cope
Somewhere...in the depths
There is a spark...cradled by emptiness
My pain will always remain in time
As I never wanted to let you go
But I still got left behind
Only to dwell in remorse
Somewhere...along the path
Came a point...where I couldn't stand
I knew there would be no moving on
And there would be no going back
Because I can't stand the thought
Of potentially losing any of that
Somewhere...in my mind
There is a time...when I loved my

My release and my design,
This ridiculous swirl of feeling
Resonating off the walls of my mind.
Burrowing me deep under the water
So thick, it compresses my lungs
And it is beautiful
To drown in the sheer raw of emotion
So dense, I cannot breathe
And inhale pure empathy
Close your eyes and see
Touch and hear and smell and taste and
You find yourself
In the cascading storm of sensation
So heavy you're forced to your knees
Weighed down by rain and gravity
In the violent passion
Caught up in the brutal whirlwind of sweet sentience
Keeping you still with the crushing pressure of it all
Too much for paper thin skin to hold
But liberating a soul that thirsts
And it enthralls.
This is poetry
My design and my release
Hitting me like a truck plunging forward at 100 m/h
And the inundating agitation transcends thought
And flooding thought translates words
And the words spill out onto the page

HP and the Christmas SpellIt was that wonderful time of the year for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as Christmas was just a few days away and classes were dismissed for the remainder of the year. As students began to head home for the holidays some of them remain behind at the school to enjoy their holiday in peace and quiet. Even though this was the plan for Harry, Ron and Hermione they would soon realize there was a plan to disrupt the peace of the school.HP and the Christmas Spell5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Trapped forever in its frame
And put upon your wall
Such as you would shoot an animal

Isnt that all hunting is?
An art, trapping something forever
Capturing something that will be stared at
For the rest of eternity
Is this what art has become?

You consider yourself superior to all those that surround you
Your undeserved ego rises beyond any possibility of calculation
You feed your pride by demeaning others
To tear them down with your spitefulness
Is psychological masturbation for you.
You claim to possess intelligence
But let me tell you something
Memorising a textbook and then vocalising information
Does not make you intelligent
It only shows your lack of knowledge on all that is truly significant
Quoting facts that were not discovered by yourself
Shows that you can only utilise other peoples knowledge
Not your own.
True wisdom comes from real life experiences
And what you learn from them
A book will never teach you
What life teaches you
No person can ever teach you
What you learn for yourself
You can only learn from what you witness with own your eyes
All else is passed-on information.
That voice you so passionately use
To convey your intelligence
To prove your superiority

"You should come over here." Fu Dog, Jake's animal guardian said. "I made a potion that should help with your dragon powers."
"Why would I need help with my powers?" Jake questioned. "I'm doing pretty good already."
"Maybe," Fu said. "But after that last battle, you could probably use the energy."
"Okay, Fu." Jake said. "I'll be right there." he hung up. "Yo guys, I gotta split." Jake said to his friends, before riding his skateboard to the shop.
When he got there, Fu wasn't there. He found a note on the potion shelf, and he read it. "Kid," Jake read to himself. "just drink the potion that says it'll create more power and life."

All that autumn her ghost haunted the playground;
no wisping phantom, but strident bits and pieces
clamoring for attention - a pair of black patent
leather shoes waiting expectantly by the teeter-totter.
And Sister Teresa had to pry red woolen mittens
off the jungle gym every morning.
Jimmy Boyle kept seeing her sweater at the swings,
its green wooly arms daring him to go higher
and trying to tag him "it".
And her best friend, Jenny Black
could see the flash of her pigtails
throwing copper across the kickball field
where recess waited to swallow them.
The toys vanished from the sandbox every evening
leaving nothing but a soft trail of disappointment
in their wake -
their accusations of neglect
and longing crouched under the
maple trees, swarming with the bees.
But winter proved a discordant grave -
the protest of frozen ground
an errant melody in the schoolyard
and her shoes kept shrinking
and stumbled down the slide,
leaving a thick crust of frost
like somber tracks that said good-bye
Little TragedyThe snow just keeps falling,Little Tragedy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And so do I.
Still can't get over this,
No matter how I try.
Despite all my reason and rationality,
I fall for a little tragedy,
Plagued by nightmares and anxiety,
Tired blue eyes, full of melancholy.
Many surprises in the situation.
The interest and infatuation,
The sudden openness and passion,
The tacitness and expulsion.
I kept wishing for things to turn around.
The brain knows while the heart believes.
But autumn pressed on,
And my hopes died with the leaves.
Now, the intense heat of her bedroom kiss,
Is contrasted starkly,
By the snow all around me.
Still, her shoulder was immensely colder.
The byproduct of so much irresponsibility,
Making me feel as though I'd lost everything.
In the end,
It was just a little tragedy.

The rain pounded on my car as I drove up the highway to my college. The sky was cloudy and it was rather chilly. I wanted to get back to the campus soon, or it would be too dark to see where I was driving. It had been a good visit back at mom and dad’s, but they had wanted to visit too long and I’d let time get away from me. It was 9 in the evening…and my housemates would probably be up watching TV or something. I didn’t want them teasing me about returning from home so late…because they’d done that before.
The guys I lived with had long put their family life behind them and very rarely visited their families at home. They often picked on me about visiting my family during certain weekends like this one. Because it was the weekend, I had decided to drive home to visit my mom and dad for a while. Unlike the guys, I missed them and I don’t get to see them very often, especially ever since I started college. They were happy to see me of course,

From a distant star you traveled,
far across the Milky Way.
Humanity felt imperiled,
but peace was the Vulcan way.
We never could understand you,
that face without expression.
Thus you suffered so many fools,
and taught us all a lesson.
The differences that separate,
move some to hate and revile.
But the bond made came not too late,
we loved you, if for a while.
Now we thank you for your wisdom,
we'll never forget your name.
Eclectic will be the kingdom,
may the flame always remain.
