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

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?
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

Startled, Souji’s eyes shot open. He looked around and found himself lying on a bed. He soon recognized where he was– the school infirmary.
“Souji-san, you came to…” A soft male voice said. “Thank goodness…”
“Huh?” Souji looked to his side. “Naoki? How…”
“Minako-san pretty much crashed into me when she was heading here,” Naoki explained. “When she told me you had been hit by a soccer ball, I called the nurse, while Ichijo-senpai and Nagase-senpai helped Minato-san bring you here. The nurse said you got a nasty hit, but luckily, not bad enough to get a concussion.”

Never straying by my side,
never going far.
But bra, dear bra,
I must confess it this day:
At times you can be painful,
and my skin tends to flay.
Oh bra, dear bra,
why must you be so conflicting?
Meant to hold up females modestly,
yet force us into awkward itching.
So bra, dear bra,
I am afraid I must ask:
For being such a wondrous garment,
why must you be such an ass?
Oh bra, dear bra,
so tenacious around our chests.
Would it kill your rigid fabric
to alleviate our suffering breasts?
Yes bra, dear bra,
I mean my words today.
Kindly stop your aches and pains
or a dirty game I'll be forced to play.
Oh bra, dear bra,
I wish it this truth to not be so.
If only you were reasonable
and rid us of our feminine woe.

Wcześniej kierował mną rozum, który odrzuciłem, mówiąc Nivowi wszystko, co leżało mi na wątrobie. No, prawie wszystko.

Rain patters the window as Souji eyes open. Today is Showa Day so he has the day off from school.
"What should I do today?" The Fool spoke to himself almost immediately after he started to wake up. Quite the pattern for him, but today was a day off from school, so he couldn't do much. Nanako was preoccupied with the television after he made breakfast for her, His mind and stomach is still recovering from the Mega Beef Bowl he had from yesterday, so that was out of the question. He did come up with one thought though, Yukiko is supposed to return to school tomorrow after being rescued from the TV and since then has been recovering; according to what Chie said a couple of days back.

Who wants to make this journey that's so very cold?
Where hearts are dark with no room for love
Blackened their soul, twisted the raven to look like a dove.
Inner demons flooding my dreams
making the most normal thing not as it seems
Wildly dark demons penetrating my mind
searching for secrets, never for me to find.
The deepest trust given to ones I care for
turn to deceit and lies, friends no more.
The cruelest ways and words left me in sorrow
ripped out my heart like there's no tomorrow.
Feeling foolish and feeling so hurt...
as my heart no more important than a piece of dirt,
As I said, "Who wants this walk down this road with me?
Feel this pain, despair and my sorrow see?"

Run away with me all the way

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

“Parker, why are you doing this?” There was a slight quiver in Ryan’s voice as he looked up to the house, which was one of the oldest in the town. In daylight the building was painted a light pink and blue, and it sat on a hill with perfectly manicured groves and trees. It looked for all the world like a dollhouse come to life. But in the moonless night it looked just as any other house, and perhaps a little more ominous.
“I just . . . I need to, honey.” Parker whispered in reply. She pushed her brunette brunette hair behind her ear and turned to him and her companions, “I really want you both to see her. I want you to see how beautiful she is.” Ryan, a tall and handsome boy with shaggy and dirty blond hair, took a moment before nodding.
