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

“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?”
“I found out after you left,” she chuckled,

A young princess warrior is seen venturing through the open field.

and I won't make a move
to answer your call.
I am dishonest,
it has been since my smallest years
that I let my truth into others ears.
I am a composer,
of a great many lies
yet carry luck like a clover
I never break my disguise.
Through those heat filled faces surrounding me
I can just barely see
and sometimes I find nowhere to run
they take over me.
I am rarely awake with sun,
so that when everything slips undone,
I will not be exposed
I will always stay composed.
I keep my secrets like stars keep distance
burning bright beneath my skin
defining my existence
out of reach and filled with sin.
Never trust a word I say,
I lie to everyone every day
and this is the only time
I will admit
that I am unlike you in many ways.
Who I am is just this: a secret to hold
and I will show no one
no matter how bold.
