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.Water5 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

Such a scary place to be
Standing in the middle of nowhere
And there's really nothing here to see
Everything inside is screaming
Go and set your mama free
But I'm young and not strong so all that's left to do
Mama I'm coming home
And I'm gonna try my best
Never to let you go
To the deep, long rest
And sorry if I let go
But I won't be alone
'cause if you go
I'll put myself to rest.
Sitting by your bed for hours
I'm too scared to walk away
Sitting by your bed fro hours
Maybe that'll turn to days
And mama, I don't really care it
Goodbye, is all you say
'cause at least it's your voice..
But I was walking home
Mama I was all alone
And I ran without looking both ways
Red inside the street still shines
'cause i didn't run in time
Sorry mama, what was I thinking?
Mama, I can't come home
Sorry I tried my best...
Never to let you go
To the deep long rest
And sorry, Ma, I let go,
Hard to think I'm alone

You wouldn't know,
If you just weren't here.
There is no feeling,
Because you can't feel.
You can't interpret.
You just aren't real.
It's so lonely here,
Where you used to be.
I look around,
But it's only me.
The River's SongPush your head below the surfaceThe River's Song2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
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

Slowly, as the innocence does take her darling life
Please do watch now, as the magic wand becomes a knife...

Yet, people are calm, and the children aren't fleeing
Quiet yourself, for you're the only one

Learn how to fly, rather, learn how to fall,
The face at the door... well... there's no face at all.

I reach up for them, fruitlessly grasping at the crisp air
Only to be met with an empty clutch.
And I stare at the barren field of innocence
After so many years
That I am just now coming home.
“Am I alone?”
Met with a haunting resonance that settles
In between the sheets of my life.
“You are lost,”
And I try to speak
But there is nothing to say
That can measure my grief
Without sounding hollow like a lonesome tree.
So I lie inside the barren field
And let the earth wrap its lifeless grasp
Around my body.
For it has died
And so have I.

One little thought can bring back little girls

One dose of glitter can shine through the night

Notice the beauty within every dream
Hush, little girl, there is no need to fight…
One dose of glitter to light up the night.

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,

Ripping pedals off a flower

And bury your castle,

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

"You've kept me waiting for quite a while."
He wonders "Shouldn't death you fear?"
"I've always thought that death was near."
The girl turned away to sink what she said.
"I have always felt I was already dead.
I float through this world without a care.
It's almost like I'm not really there.
So, no I'm not afraid of no longer being.
You can see that I'm already nothing."
Death just nodded. What she said was true.
"Regardless it is time for me to take you."
The girl stood up, all ready to go.
An afterlife she thought, wasn't likely to show.
Death did his duty, and took her away.
The girl finally had her awaited day.

Lest I rest through autumns crest
For many moons of discontent;
To thine soul mate, I professed
This cabin echoes my lament.
I wonder where thou hast gone
My once sanguine spirit of yore;
And why thy visage is withdrawn
From tranquil waves upon the shore.
I keep hearing whispers from the lake
Day by day, the voice draws nearer.
I find myself begin to shake
As the message becomes clearer.
“You have to…”
“I have to what?!”
“Please tell me!”
The spectral voice then faded away
I swear I’ve heard that voice before.
Before my mind begins to fray
I long to hear that voice once more.
I took the boat out passed the birch tree
Then sat there, floating for hours.
Yet could not resonate her voice with thee
Then sullen skies brought forth showers.
On those placid days that followed
I dreamt a dream of darken waves;
That engulfed me, yet left me hollowed
Deep beneath their watery graves.
Tis mid November, I still remember
I shall not leave this bed of
A Black Hole (My Dear Friend)My dear friend,A Black Hole (My Dear Friend)6 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Why must the good things always end?
Like the times when fun and mischief blended
And indefinite life never frightened.
Youthful camaraderie helped lighten
Our coming depression.
Inevitably disrupted by lights,
Did these sessions blow an underlying lesson?
My dear friend,
When will the past come to an end?
Chained by painful loss for you alone to fend -
Tossed in the pouring rain by current trends.
Surrendering this mean war will not mend
Your lasting depression.
Trivially ignored by daily routine,
Did these transgressions transcend into obsession?
My dear friend,
A black hole absorbs with no end.
Corpses are swallowed whole - Please comprehend.
With intentions of love, not to offend,
I will observe, staying away from you,
Afraid I, too, will be consumed in its vacuum.
My dear friend,
The good things do not have to end.

The chill in the breeze,
The frost on the ground,
Crisp on a moonlit night.
A young boy's figure
Glides through the streets,
His breath a clouded fog.
Eyes like crystals,
Hair like snow,
He walks with staff in hand.
Alone in the world,
Unseen by all,
He strides like a ghost through the town.
Young children seen
Through a window pane,
Bask in the glow of the hearth.
Unseen goes the boy
Who stares unnoticed and lost
At the joy before his eyes.
A tentative move,
A soft hand to the glass,
Which freezes beneath his touch.
He turns away,
To the dark of the night
And raises his head to the sky.
A tear flows unseen,
Silent and soft,
To be dashed on the frozen earth.
Calling winds forth,
Around him to swirl,
His feet lift off from the ground.
Invisible and alone,
He flies higher until
He melds with the sky and the stars.
"I want to be seen
And I want to be heard."
Only one hears this desperate boy's cry.
The Man in the Moon
Stares down on the scene,
At the lost and forgotten child.

"Antonio!" A voice interrupted the lovely stumming of a guitar on a lazy August afternoon. Antonio, who had been called, turned his head to meet beautiful brown eyes , making his heart leap in his chest. There was only one known female who had the power to make him feel like a silly school girl with a crush. Maria Ramirez, the human personification of the Latino country Mexico. Antonio represented the country of passion, Spain. A big grin formed on his face as he stood up rapidly to greet his crush.
"Hola, Mari~! What brings you here?" He greeted her and shook her hand. Their painful past had been put aside which was good because it would be awkward if your ex-wife was visiting you. Maria smiled back shyly and kissed his cheeks in greeting. Toni wasn't sure if he picked that up from Lovino or what. Not that he was com
