Put my hand above my head, and tease me with your tongue.
Put your lips close to mine, and push them onto my face.
Leave me breathless and excited, longing for another taste.

The voice, it soothes
Rings into my mind again
This voice, it moves
I'm coming, my friend
This voice, it lures
Caving away the walls
This voice, it lies
For this single moment I gladly fall
This voice, it seethes
Stings the edges of my lids
This voice, promises nothing
It's tone forbids
This voice, it reverberates
A nail in my chest
His voice, it slices
The heart from my breast.
At times I wish I could be inside that mind
All the torment I might find
While I writhe beneath those scalding hands
That promise an eternity of anguish
To bend and snap under that guise
And enjoy the perfection of my demise.
Sing to me this lullaby of endless night
The coal rains down, smudging our faces black
Allow me this one insight
To press my soul into the mold
Of your ever deepening gaze
Among the spines of your arms, I fold
Drink away the loneliness of my bile
I'll churn away within your bellied pits
Do you find me detestably vile?

something heartfelt and twisted;
something in her eyes
beckoned if ever so slightly
the forested garden of her irises
illuminated under the setting sun,
enlivened by the hazelnut
nestled between the pitch spheres
recalling the times we had held one another
neath a shell of endless & starless night,
swallowing past tears of bliss -
shallow gusts over her neck,
deep bite marks in my shoulders,
scratches like intoxicating fire up my spine,
fervent cries to the moonlight
drunk on the silver of the elusive atmosphere,
high on everything that smelled so sweet;
confections & peppered kisses
left gingerly on her jawline & shoulders -
like imprints forgotten on her pink freckles;
yellowed bruises & snagged notes
lining her cinnamon waves,
purpling contusions under a veil of
scars in places i hadn’t been able to see
nor lay my kisses upon -
the valley between her breasts,
stitches up & down her visible sternum,
marks & cracked porcelain over h

What have we been playing at
The toying of a kitten's paws
Raking at our hearts
Worship the blue moon
Feel each heartbeat
Compress within your chest
Take an endless breath

Grasp your last
A soul to gasp
Tomorrow will arise
Speaking in riddles
How to survive and smile
When the gray chews
At the fringes of sanity
Pull at those threads
Until the decay gives

We have to live

Engraved 'Forget Me Not'
With opinions of love

True love, abused

Breaking blades on bones
Am I truly... So distant?
Truly so devoid

When it's decided, and we'll have nothing
But nothing is always something
And something means everything
Tear me down, my love gone astray
Do we have it in us
To break the manacles of misfortunates
Really, we've risen and I'm dispensable
But you refuse to acknowledge such misguidance
I'm not trash and you won't throw me away
This divide is where you've permeated
The stigma of my love
Love, what more to say
List the ways I can make your day
And I'll give all of myself to the task
Take me, if nothing else, that's something
Someone more than a lover
More than forever
No less than everything I've ever dreamed
While you rush, dissolve my doubts
Slip the chalky white of you passed my lips
Inside me, where you should be
A pill printed, singular heart
Drug away the formidable foe
What corrupts my smile
If we become infinite would you still give it all?
Fist in my chest, clutch me
Fuse with me, become one with me

in every stare
The images scattered out in rays of broken light
to flicker on the wall
A strange assembly of delight
Now my eyes sparkled too,
though they sang a different song
but under the shadow of my gaze
the pictures could not be wrong
"Won't you blink a little less my dear"
I said without a stop
"I know you're tired now,
but you'll love me when it's done."
His blue eyes glinted
from the glass embedded there
guarded, leaking thoughts
reflected in his stare
"It's just a moment longer,
and I shall read our fate.
I know you'd like to shuffle
but I fear the closing of the gate."
The lights became more dim
as his sleepy lids slid
And though I tried to rouse him
He would not wake nor budge
His eyes glowed with

and the wall ceased to reflect
the red-hot words he wouldn't lend.

A place between here and there
The space between each and every care
Which binds us to every word
And every promise ever heard
Blacken our minds to the Great Divide
Wallow amongst the lurking shadows inside
They claw and mark us to match one another
Ill fated or poorly met, star gazing, damned lovers
Secrets, a sheet of plastic words softly spoken
The depths of swirling madness which had awoken
To lie and bind our hearts in common guise
The truth of our shared embrace, intents surmised
Embankments of the rivers of blood and tears
Where ambitions, hopes, and misery is lost among the endless years
We bring our sorrow as a dish to pass for the thieving mouths
They cannibalize our dreams and leave us hanging on the stripped boughs
Bared of our sins we rest our hearts on the breeze
The whispers of salvation clinging about our knees
I look at you and try to wear my wearied smile
But your chastising eyes strip away my denial
Turning over in our graves, the so

Climbed the social ladder. Received awards.
If there was anything admirable to be done, I did it.
I landed a high-paying job. Married the perfect wife, fathered two exquisite children.
I provided for them. I serviced the world.
And, in the blink of an eye, it was all torn away.
My wife was banging some pretentious jockey half her age.
I refused to divorce when I found out. What about the children?

the royal, velvet blue--
So much happier than you.
Look how thoughtful she is!
A half, sheepish smile
her fist on her chin
the 1000 mile stare
glittering like gems--
She basks in her reasons.
Look how mighty she is!
Brave like a tiger
coniferous and bellicose
full of brimstone and fire
She has courage, and so much of that--
While you don't even know how to act.
She is a paragon, a pillar
strength, beauty and resolve
yet still something is unquiet within her
as her head nods just slightly
and then nods no more--
This echelon of a woman

the wind is warm now like then, the boats anchored firmly
the rhythm of the waves still beats like a heart,
pounding on the bare rocks on this shore that I have chosen for myself
These years have yielded me nothing of permanence
few memories to call my own,
no worldly possessions or prizes from pursuits undertaken
I am looking into nothingness, this decade of empty days
into memories that are not tactile
maybe not even memories at all?
I was always wishing I were somewhere else, someone else
not reaching for the distant while the people hurry past
taking cover in their laughter and shelter in their touch
I have lived like a wave itself
ever distant and only the sound is what people will remember
the quiet whisper of a life that could have been
reflection of starlight on the surface of the water,
light that shall be gone come the sunrise
just like the silent figure on the rocks
the silhouette among the trees nea

Behind the pretty words hides a mouth of razor fangs
Quite frankly, I'm completely deranged.
So few know what lurks in my mind
What nightmare places exist for you to find.
At times I picture kissing your lips
All the while my knife slips
Into your innards and rips
Away your trust.
Stacked behind the allure of my pale eyes
Are rows and rows of myself in disguise.
The masks I wear to convince you that you're safe
Alone, you realize you're the victim I've raped.
I took away your innermost emotions
And placed them within the hands of my devotion.
Now you're trapped in my toxic web
I swallow you and you sink like lead
To the bottom of my heart.
The way I love is violent at best.
For instance, I'd like to tear your heart from your chest
And drink away the nectar of your affection.
Your body, subject to my dissection.
In this game, only I will win.
My tongue is dripping your blood and sin,
Drop by drop it sprays away
And from you, your life I take

Glorious days brought forth from sunshine rays
made all the more finer with you by my side
with soft voice, delicate touch, bright eyes and feminine stride
to hear you say you love me as your smile grew wide
as your sexy slender fingers approached me
to touch and stroke
to caress and poke
to sooth any pain
that of no one spoke.
To sense, to feel
to melt away what cannot peel
to warm the soul and light the heart
to make me yearn for dessert to start,
to congratulate any gain
to soften any bane
a warm lady's hand to hold in the cold rain
and once again, to make me happy and sane.
A pretty happy glowing face to see when the days grows old
and when my spent energy no longer makes me feel so bold,
You are there coming from anywhere
waiting with your renewing light
shining through the evening
making me feel oh so right.
That the day's not just through
and the night had only just begun
A cute Diamond Dear
A pink-lip smile oh so clear
In pretty prim outfit you wear

*note: this is old. I never subbed it so far as I know.*
In the distance, far off on the horizon
My heart sits under the sun
As it sets, crushing my eternal soul
Bruising my silent lips
In your shadow I remain stunned
Consciousness swinging, rocking away
Like tidal waves racing through my thoughts
Your fingers tracing my skin softly
Icy paths in between each chilly tip
This moment long sought
Did you ever think you would run away
When you realized I was the one
Did you ever consider my tears crashing down
When you turned to run
Set me free, release me from your gaze
Do not torture me any longer
Let my soul slip
Through your fingertips
Stop trying to catch me as I fall
Making me lose my grip
Living for this moment
It's all I've ever done
With you holding my fears between your lips
Soothing my nerves as the frost of your breath
Breaks the sanity I preserve
On the cusp of bliss

And shadow through my heart
My body stalls to find me
My memories apart
The world is always fighting
Searching for something new
And in this world of sorrow
Our beating hearts are two
Blowing gently through my hair
Like a love without direction
So won't you take me there
Blowing through the autumn trees
How many lovers have you had
And were they hard to please?
Soaring swiftly to the sky
Looking for a place to die
So come with me forever
Our life for now is one
We'll find our space together
Our problems we will shun
And when there's no tomorrow
That flashes, crossing sides
We'll throw away our sorrows
Our destinies collide
And the tides are always turning
Turning far away
And I can only watch them
From my place upon the bay
These careless sorrows are wrapped in joy
Enclosed within the floating buoy
Don't blow my hopes and dreams away

With the universe as my canvas
I'd dip my brush into the Milky Way
And paint with the stars
All my adoration across space
To see you smile
At a universe of color
Fulfilling my one and only wish
Would tears well and fall?
To know would quench
My needy heart
Which longs to please
Longs to be held
No matter where you were
You'd know it was I
Who'd rearranged the Heavens
To send you a message
The words my lips
Would say if your ear
Was but inches away
All others could envy us
And we could remain clueless
Star crossed gazes turned upward
Eyes sparkling a thousand heartbeats
Swimming through aeons
At the speed of light
I'll race through your veins
And warm away the chill of loneliness
All I want is to give you something beautiful
That you can call your own
Even if that means
Stealing the stars
From everyone else
I'd endure the hatred of worlds
Just to know I made you smile

The slip of your fingertips, your palms as they mesh
A slick mess of your ideas written through vivid color

Set my passions free
Your breath trips through my being
For once I know who I'm seeing
Within my haunted eyes so full of allure
Fall into me, take the tour
While I am quiet and too far gone
Do not allow me to remain like that for long
Lost inside the nipping shadows of my mind
Let your voice be the one I find
Lure me to the surface, grab my attention
Keep me bemused through suspension
Share that which paints the walls of your nightmares sable screams
Allow me to share in those tormented dreams
I'll toss with you upon the tide of sheets
Unconsciously pleased as our bodies meet
The comfort of your biting

She sleeps there all alone.
She can’t quite take the silence,
The quiet that her sorrow brings.
He sits under a cloud of anger,
Boiling to the core.
Nothing seems to help at all,
It will just keep gnawing at his soul.
They share a common anguish,
A similar demon squirms.
Yet a simple solution awaits them.
It’s just hidden far too deep.
He pulls away her blanket,
She pushes away his cloud.
They chase away the silence,
And together burnt the demons down.

So tomorrow I might smile?

Keeping me from my soul's claws inflicting harm

He was always in my dreams. Every night without fail he'd be there.
I sat up in bed, breathing heavily, a cold sweat clinging to my skin. Putting a hand to my head, I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to calm myself. Why was this happening? So much time had passed since I'd last seen him, so why did I still think about him when I had no reason to?
I jumped at the sound of a soft knocking at my door. "Katara? You up yet?" Came the familiar voice of Aang, my best friend and boyfriend for a year.
"Y-yeah. What is it Aang?"
"We got a letter from the Fire lord! Hurry up and join us in the kitchen so we can open it!" He always sounded so enthusiastic. I smiled to myself and pushed away the bed covers, hesitating as my blue eyes caught the paleness of my skin. My hands trembled as I held them up, a flash of memory coming back to me.
The lighting, the pain. 'Help him Katara! You have to help him,' was all I could think.

Katara stared at the door in front of her. She took a deep breath and pressed down the door handle.
This was her fourth visit with the broken princess. Azula was being kept in a smaller room in the furthest corner of the palace. There was a bed and a table and a window with view of the royal garden. During Katara's first two visits, she had found the princess sitting by the window, staring numbly at the little pond, providing home for turtleducks. Both visits had ended up with Katara sitting down at the table and talking to Azula, trying to get some sort of response, without success.
This visit started no different, Azula's back facing Katara as she stepped into the room. The princess wore nothing but a red dressing-gown, the long black hair falling messily down her back.
“Hello, Azula”, Katara greeted the way she had yesterday, and the day before that. As expected, the princess didn't even acknowledge her presence. She just kept s

The weeks rolled by and Mother Nature was drawing her winter to a close. The last day of the frosty season arose, luring the equine inhabitants of Ponyville from their homes in the early hour to ready themselves for the long day of work that awaited them. There were many tasks to accomplish on the annular day known as Winter Wrap Up; snow needed to be cleared - shaken from trees, plowed away, and melted in order to make way for tilling and sowing fresh vegetation. The frozen surfaces of waterbeds required breaking up, bird nests needed to be built, birds led back from their designated migration grounds, and the animals in hibernation needed to be roused from their lengthy slumber.
Fluttershy had recuperated from both her injury and her sickness - though she was under the weather for nearly a week, and her hoof took another to heal. She had grown closer to Smokey over the weeks, often being wit
