Running With the WolvesThe howl goes up,Running With the Wolves8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My blood goes cold,
I will run with the wolves,
Before I'm too old.
I watch the pack streak down the hill,
Grab my coat and out the door,
I run to meet them,
Mind full of old wolf lore.
A bark and a nod,
A space in the pack,
I join their hunt,
Without looking back.
We frighten a deer,
And begin to chase,
Catch it and feast,
Raw meat and blood on my face.
When it is over,
I return to my home,
A head full of memories,
To take to my tomb.
And for just one night,
I knew true freedom,
Running with the wolves,
In nature's kingdom.

with strokes of ink
running dry within the pen,
with pencils shrunken
so small that the point
i coloured myself with shades
of black and blue,
begging for the shadows
of my bones to come forth
and tell everyone
the things i can never remember
i swam in coral reefs
til my arms were marred
and my wrists tattered
because the silence beneath the water
was too much to hear.
today i am painting myself
in roses and peaches,
white teeth and red lips
because smiling and marker
speak so much louder
than the things i've tried
and shout with no pause
today i am choosing
to swallow health
and spit my words
so that finally
i can be heard
the memory in my jaw
that make my smile

The pain comes back strong.
You hurt me so bad,
Made me feel so wrong.
I reached out for you,
But you weren't there.
I told you I would die,
But you didn't care.
I really don't know,
Why I didn't die that day.
I've tried to find out,
But I can't really say.
Sometimes I really wonder,
If I am still living,
Or if this is just a dream,
That some coma is giving?
When it comes down to it,
I really should be dead.
I wonder if you understand,
How bad it is what you said.
In between life and death,
Is how I'll spend eternity.
I wish I could understand.
Why you would ever hurt me.

That run through your head.
Sometimes you've wondered,
If you'd be better off dead.
You may have found a reason,
That will allow you to live,
But the things you've done,
You could never forgive.
You hold so much guilt.
You hold so much fear.
You're terrified that,
You'll hurt everyone near.
You were so afraid,
Of letting your secret out.
You should never feel,
That my love would have doubt.
Whatever you think,
I want you to understand,
I'll always be there,
To hold your hand.
As long as you work with me,
I'll accept whatever you do.
Whatever your past,
I will always love you.
You've given me more happiness,
Than I could ever say.
You're the reason that I smile,
Each and every day.
You're helping me change,
To accept myself too.
You help me through the fear,
Of something completely new.
You've helped me so much.
I just want to see you smile.
Let's just live in the present,
For a little while.

Open my eyes,
The sunlight creeping past the blue curtains, laying its essence across the ruffled sheets on the bed forces you to open your eyes. Tiredly you glance over towards the window, a yarn slipping past your lips. Slowly you sit up, sheets sliding down to pool in your lap as you lightly rub at your eyes.
And I can tell it's gonna be a good day,
I can tell it's gonna be a good day
Arms raised above your head you stretch, ushering the sleep from your body and inviting the energy to face the new day. The rising sun on your body is warm and yet another yarn escapes you. Lazily you let your arms fall back down and you turn to see the alarms clock on the other side of the bed, glowing neon green digits the only other source of light to illuminate the room. The soft glow gently lights up red hair sprawled about the pillow and you can’t help but smile at the sight. It isn’t very often you’d wake up before the Russian, if ever.
Sunset (Lucifer x Reader One shot)You stood at the window of a tall office building, looking out at the world below. It had been some time since you’d been a hunter. You’d gotten out after a particularly bad hunt where you’d lost both of your partners to demons. You were the only one who came out of that encounter alive.Sunset (Lucifer x Reader One shot)10 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
After that nothing seemed right, so you quit, retired, gave up… what ever you wanted to call it, you were through with hunting. This world of clean lines and large windowed walls was your domain now and while it was dull you reasoned dull was good.
You ran this branch of a large corporation, having climbed to the top over the two years you’d been here, and now you could enjoy it. The sun was starting to set over the city and you smiled, this was your favorite time of day.
There was a rustle of wings behind you and you stiffened, those two idiots and their stupid angel had been trying to pull you back into their fight, their little war with both angels and demons, and you

You stumbled over to the kitchen, your head feeling like it had been split in two. You knees were shaking and by the time you reached the fridge, they gave out from under you. You clawed at the fridge, trying to find the handle to open it since your (h/c) locks covered your eyes. When you finally found it, it took some strength to get it open. You groaned, seeing almost nothing in your refrigerator. All you had was a half eaten strawberry donut with sprinkles, a carton of milk that was two days old, a tub of butter that was a quarter filled, and a plate of left overs from yesterday's dinner. You leaned against the door frame of the fridge, your ha

Most of the furniture were you signature colors which were (favorite color one) and (favorite color two). Fandral had been kind enough to escort you to your room.

If anyone else had asked you who you loved, you would've said the truth. You were in love with Clint. It wasn't the puppy love that happened in high school though. No, it was the type of love that made your heart burn and squeeze with pain whenever the idea of him rejecting you crossed your mind
Mercy in MonstersThere is nothing humorous about a man slogging his way out of sight and mind. To see the cruel output of intoxication is humiliating and depressing, like watching a being of flesh and bones absorb the liquid he is drinking into his body until he assimilates into a liquid himself.

Poking your head out of the door, you looked around to see if Fandral was anywhere nearby. Feeling quiet silly for your actions, you simply got out of your shop and began your search for the man. The Warrior's Three had just come back from there battle just hours ago so finding him could be difficult. You searched around the medical rooms and then the main court yard, after that the training rooms that were held both inside and outside. When you found him nowhere in sight, you decided it was time to go to the bar in town. He would most likely be in there having a beer and relaxing.
Going back into your shop, you grabbed a brown leather bag that contained your coin purse and wallet, a comb and mirror for whenever the time calls to pretty yourself up, some lipstick, and finally the two shirts that you now stuffed in your bag.

Arthur Kirkland, the mighty British nation, paced his house lividly. The house was silent, save for the rain that splattered against the roof and the creaking protests of the aged gutters and walls. The dark clouds outside seemed to penetrate through the windows into every nook and cranny, reflecting the darkness of not only the epoch, but of Arthur's heart.
With every single step Arthur grew angrier, making the search for the answer he was so desperately trying to find near impossible.
Well, that wasn't entirely true. Of course, the most obvious course of action was echoing through his entire being, from the cries of his nation's leaders, his people, half of Europe, and of the entire Allied forces.
Without him, there was no hope of winning this war.
At this thought, Arthur abruptly ceased his pacing and fisted the wall both impatiently and helplessly. Why? Why did it have to come down to him? The

It hurts me every single day
A piece of glass for my heart
It too easily comes apart.
Torn by hurtful words that came from you
“Why do I breathe the same air you do?”
My existence wavers on this Earth
Soon will I become one with the dirt?
No one ever seems to notice me
Will I ever be set free?
To be valued and noticed by you
Is all I ever want to do.
But I don’t know how much longer
I can try to reconquer
The space I once held in your heart
While it turns more tart.
With flowers on my grave
This I dare say…

And my experience I shall keep.
Here I shall say adieu
And become a person anew”

Or the acid that I drunk when all else had failed.
It was that tone of voice that whispered secrets to me;
How malevolent it was when it spoke of innocence.
All of it was clarified, masked by the benevolence that were your eyes—
The dancing cyan flames that rippled like a drop into the ocean.
They were dangerous, violent, if I must say,
Alluring young girls into your embrace, caging them
And fulfilling the pleasure that was not given properly away.
“Kill me,” they chanted, “love me…hate me…traumatize me…
Punish me until I know better, and I stand with you beneath me,
My knife plunging into your heart this time.”
Let these thousand of knives carve your body inside out,
And we’ll feast upon your corpse and get drunk from your blood tonight.
We’ll watch you closely as the eclipse phases,
Watch the benevolence be devoured and the flames be extinguished

I walked down the long corridor of the hidden palace to the room where Loki has hidden Thor. I quickly put the fire place a flame, revealing Thor bounded to the wall. A smile appeared on my lips, a smile of triumph. Thor was asleep, breathing softly. I gently brushed his lips with the tips of my fingers.

Thor and I talked for a while. He told me about how he lived on Asgard all his life with his brother Loki. Loki and him use to be close and always play together, but sometimes would fight a lot.

He explained to me how as they got older Loki started to envy him more and more just wanting to be his equal.

Forgotten in the flawing currents of time
Left out in the endless motion
I care for the dying wound
Rotting the flesh
If a soul holds a ground
Then I must be soulless
And if free to roam it is

Draw near your weapons
For I let mine go
Hold up your shields
For mine is broke
Let the imperfection die
The need forgotten
Only cheap escape
For a dying bed
But something is out there
Drawing me near
May I ask you my angel
Are you here?
But truth be told
There's nothing at all
And if lying is a sin
Then we're out of control
So here's my lullaby
Here's my last breath
