chokeHere's how it happens.choke2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You meet someone. You like them.
Their smile makes you smile. Their jokes make you laugh. Their friendly hugs make you feel too safe and their half flirting stupid remarks make your intestines turn to insects-those pretty day-flying ones that tramp stamps are famous for.
And then romantic comedy style it all goes to shit.
Except it's not like a movie at all.
Because you cry yourself to sleep over misunderstandings
and you choke down revealing gazes
and you brush your hand over your own hand instead of theirs
because all this not knowing is better than knowing and finding out it's a no go
- how could you stand spurned if you're drowning in unrequited?
No AtlantisBeneath the mossy bones of the ocean deepNo Atlantis5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Great spires of stone stretch their fingers high
While weaving angels wrap each rocky keep
And strands of strangling seaweed scratch the sky.
Descending deeper in the waiting dark,
Where sea-bound corpses hold a hollowed hall
And gnashing teeth trace their bloody mark,
The rotting planks of piracy that fall.
What mortal man whose breath could sway this land?
What lung could draw in words to speak its part?
The cruel soul of the sea won't spare his hand
To those who've earned his wrath with silent start.
Can souls find sleep in such a strangled thrall,
Where the waves find rest and stop their ceaseless crawl?
Where the waves find rest and stop their ceaseless crawl,
Raking salty claws in sandy shores,
A vain and panicked grasp before they fall;
The home of homespun hypocrites and whores.
The moon reflects in heartless pantomime
A silver orb of glowing innocence
That mocks them as they're punished
Autumn AutopsyAs lovers,Autumn Autopsy3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we were reckless;
in a field of mines.
We traded kisses
and carefree caresses
and blackened skin.
at the cost
of darker afternoons,
of the dying season;
We didn't ask,
we never questioned
of our expenditures.
I shed my skin
in the Autumn of youth,
the viscera and
bared the bone --
a scarecrow of worms
and raw meat,
amongst the stalks
of reddened corn.
to dusty artifacts,
laden with memories
of decaying potency;
rising from the cooling wick
will never be
as sweet as
when the flame

"Is there anything as disheartening as a blank computer screen?" Cid's voice filled his studio apartment as he leaned back in his chair. Music flowed out from his small computer speakers inspiring him to be the best. Got to be the best. Got to change the world. His hands ran through his thick dark hair and rubbed his neck roughly. "Must work avoid internet " he muttered to himself as he found his urge to write waning even further. A cursory glance around the room made him acutely aware of the letter posted up on his whiteboard. It was from his editor, reminding him that the deadline for his next book was encroaching upon them rather quickly. He leaned forward in his chair, gaze returning to the flashing cursor at the top of his word document. "You write one decent book and suddenly they're breakin down the door for more.

Cecily is in the kitchen cooking up something hot and spicy. The food she planned on to cook has something to do with jalapeños and red hot pepper. It would be no other than pork and pepper stew. She grabbed the cook book out of the shelves and flipped the pages until the recipe for the food came up.
"Just I wanted for a quick lunch," Cecily giggled. "Eating some hot and spicy will make me a cute super-hot girl."
She got on with the cooking as the ingredients were gathering according to the cook book and prepared the meal but cutting the jalapeños into curly shapes. The yellow, red and green bell peppers were cut into strips; the onions are thinly sliced as the intense aroma causing her cry with tears to flow down like a waterfall as if the violins were playing a sad tune.
"These raw onions are powerful than a tear-jerking movie," she giggled in a comical way to reli

At Lunch you had planned to meet up with Kaito again. You weren't sure if Miku was up to anything, but you tried to not let your curiosity get the better of you. Whatever she wanted Kaito to see wouldn't be too bad. She had already had history with him, dumping him once in the past, so he definitely wasn't cheating on you with her. That settled your nerves a little at least.
The bell rang and you made your way straight outside. It was a habit now. Every day, Kaito and yourself would meet there and chat and eat without anybody else bothering you. You didn't have to wait long before you saw a flash of blue hair as he pushed his way through the crowd. When he saw you he burst into a run. He seemed extremely happy and pleased about something.

During one of her aimless strolls in Wonderland Woods, Alice stumbled upon a clearing she'd never seen before. At first Alice thought this was odd, considering how often she walked through these woods, but then again, this was Wonderland; things were always changing.
The ground Alice walked on had square tiles like a chessboard, which alternated between healthy grass and white, chipped stone slabs. Surrounding the clearing were these huge, olive stalks that were so close together that there might as well have been a wall keeping her in.
The one thing that stood out the most to Alice was a small circular table and blocky chair. On closer inspection, Alice found a muffin resting on the table. Alice glanced back at the entry to the clearing, her Vorpal Blade already in hand. Nothing was seen or heard by Alice, so she eased up after while and sat down. She still placed her knife on the table in case any thing got any bright ideas.
Alice peeled the paper off the muffin and

“I told you so,” Traci said firmly, “I told you it wouldn’t work the first time you did it.” Cassidy had just returned back to her world after crossing dimensions, bringing her coven the news of her failure.
“Yeah well,” Cassidy said, “How was I supposed to know my body I take over was going to act on its own. Hell, how was I supposed to know that even my emotions got screwy afterwards?” She had merged with a host back there, her target’s girlfriend named Rachel. To her own surprise, even after Rachel had transformed into her and Cassidy’s taken over her mind, the body still acted on its own. The Rach-Cass hybrid took qualities from both individuals and acted on its own accord.
“Well the book did mention that as a side effect,” Traci shrugged.
“What?!” Cassidy said angrily, “Why did you tell me?”

Today after school I went over to Violet’s house. My relationship with Violet was easily the most complicated of all my friendships. I couldn’t tell if she hated me, loved me or merely viewed me as a form of amusement. We met back in middle school, and remained on and off friends to this day - our junior year of high school. She was a fairly attractive girl with a naturally slim and curvy build. Despite attending public school, she hailed from a very well-off family; Her mother and father were both highly lauded research scientists. As a result, they often neglected to spend much time with their daughter, leading her to seek attention from other sources. Fortunately for her, Violet had inherited a great deal of her parent’s natural inclination towards intelligence. She was a very bright girl and despite possessing a nice body found fulfillme

On the outskirts of the city limits, at a small rest stop that was little more than a picnic bench and an old cooking pit. Two men approached the sign welcoming them to Angel Falls. One stood about 6'1, the other 6'7. The shorter one was of a lean muscular build with dark hair that when the light caught it, gave off a blue shade. The other was built like he belonged in the line up of the Mr. Olympia competition and had jet black hair. Both men had piercing blue eyes.

Run away with me all the way
to the coffee shop down the street,
where I'll buy you one of those
stupid peppermint coffee drinks
that cost five extra dollars
because of the logo on the paper cup.
Hide with me between the cushioned booths
and tell me again about the sports you play,
the meals you cook,
the boys you've kissed, and
the girls you've always wanted to.
I want to know everything about you.
I could count on my fingers what I do know.
You have an accent, English,
and it took me too long to figure it out.
Long enough for me to realize
that you're bold and brave and strong,
and that your eyes are blue—
I've never been good at noticing
those little things.
But you make me want to.
You make me want to
notice that red plaid looks great against your skin
and how my face turned the same colour
when you sat down behind me.
I want to notice the way you laugh too loudly,
the way you want the best for everyone
