they push up through my skin;
rupture through my cheeks.
crack open my lips in a grin
hungrier than words;
a cheshire cat
stripped of summer innocence
made terrible in blades and blood.
switchblade teeth rip holes through the still air,
knife through your heartstrings like paper.
you stare at me with eyes pulled tight,
your pupils shrinking away
as my hands curve into claws at your side.

it's just a step forward.
it's just a breath:
it's the whisper of wings; the ghost of a spiderweb across my fingers.
it's the white noise that sings along my skin, and the cool air on my lips.
i can breathe blue skies and winter and white sunlight

i can close my eyes to the distance

it's just a movement of muscle.

it's the simple synchronicity of white pressed to white; intertwined.

and I no longer have to hide the laughter perched like doves in my throat.
in cracked voices, we whisper timeless words, and press them tight against each others lips.
you let me steal away collarbone kisses and hide small inside your ribcage
and contrast skies hang low overhead.
the lights are distant, shrouded in the hazy heat that spills from open windows and open wounds.
you are rust-blood-red, and I see you smile with scissored lips.

I told you that here is where the clichés began, but somehow you defy and define them all
your voice is thrown low, and you sing the melody that makes my mind fall away.

No hay nada más frustrante que un artist block y para mí no hay nada más frustrante que leer eso de alguien más.
Sé que deben haber otros tuts con cómo salir de un artist block, así que simplemente me basaré en cómo pueden cazar la inspiración, estén bloqueados o no, pero primero deben responder a la pregunta:
¿Me satisface lo que hago?
Si están bloqueados es porque necesitan simplemente un cambio de aires, uno se aburre hasta de lo que más le gusta hacer. Ahora, si están bloqueados tipo "nada me sale" o "no puedo hacer nada" y el cambio de aires no es una idea a aceptar, lo tomaría como que son esclavos de lo que hacen y por eso tanto su imaginación como su cuerpo (el "plasmador" de obras) se rebelan. Pongan atención a sus estados y no vayan en su contra, eso empeora el caso. Si ya no pueden dibujar, escriban, si no escriben, lean, vean películas, hagan deporte, jueguen videojue
Miniature sandstorm (GaaraXPregnant!Reader)The soft buzzing of the incessant sand storms sounded outside, though this wasn’t what had perturbed your well-deserved and much-needed slumber. No, it wasn’t the small sighs that escaped your husband, nor was it the familiar gushing, grating rustle of sand particles as they spun around and in between Gaara’s slim, outstretched fingers. What had roused you was the fact that your doting husband of few words was no longer curled around you protectively, his large hands leaving the spot where he normally placed them – circling your big tummy.Miniature sandstorm (GaaraXPregnant!Reader)2 years ago in Romance More Like This

“What is Corporal’s obsession with those birds? Every single time he sees one, he stops and stares until it flies away.” Eren’s eyes flit over to the stalky, muscular soldier, the man who everybody believed to be perfect, untainted, without flaw. Hanji’s expression contorts to a somber frown, the small bluebird suddenly fluttering away. Back was the old Levi, the same irritable grump.
“Eren, whatever you do, never ask him about the bluebird.”
Eren’s curiosity is subdued with the gloomy glint in Hanji’s gaze. The Corporal turns his head signaling with a lazy flick of his hand to follow. Hanji leaves a confused and awed Eren behind, ponytail trailing lowly with the bob of her head.

"Ith thomething wrong?" She shook her head, pulling him close for a hug. The sudden contact caused his mouth to open slightly, then shut almost immediately. His arms went to encircle her waist as his head went to rest on hers. A sigh whispered past his lips, and Mituna buried his nose in her hair to inhale her scent. She peeked up at him, a small sparkle in her eyes. His heart stopped as did his breathing. Slowly, he moved his hands up to cup her cheeks and he pressed a tender kiss to her lips. Her body froze, too shocked to move. Mituna dropped his hands to his sides, feeling utterly rejected.

There was an extra heap of buoyancy springing from the corners of his orotund voice, and you knew in that moment that something nettlesome was going to be querulously shoved in your face. Bokuto's potent steps resounded through the hallways while you stayed lounging on the couch, but seconds later he skittered into the living room with something hidden behind his back.
You shifted gawkily in your seat, staring up at his heighten figure in the utmost curiosity. "What is it?" you questioned incredulously, instinctively switching from his slanted orbs to his bulky arms to scrutinize any detail on whatever present he had in store for you. Your shrewd vision soaked in the dorky red sweater he garbed, little green stitches poorly woven together to resemble something akin to Christmas Trees and multicolored buttons were splayed across the green terrain as ornaments.

Your eyes slowly fluttered open. You had apparently fallen asleep during the last half of the movie, with Tavros curled up on your chest. You poked the sleeping grub, giggling a bit when he grumbled at you.
"Sorry Tavie, but it's time to get up. I can't feel my legs." You explained. He chirped up at you sleepily, but didn't protest when you got up.
By now it was quite late, but from the sound of the wind it didn't seem like the storm had calmed down any. Great, now you'd just be stuck in the house. House trapped, or something.
You turned your attention back to the little grub and sighed. "Well, I don't know about you, but I'm kinda hungry. What d'ya say we grab a bite to eat?" You proposed.
A happy squeak served as enough confirmation for you, sending you skipping into the kitchen to grab some food. However, the strange feeling of someone watching you made you pause.
You quickly shook it off. If there was someone in your house, Mi

The recollection of that fateful vow evoked vehemence from the depths of your soul, resonating the quintessential heartfelt emotions gyrating ever since that day through the weaving of your being. The scintillating water emitting from the hose sparkled against the iridescent sunbeams as you sprinkled the contiguous florets flourishing from the sopping soil - the aligned bed of them located on the ridges of your shared house: you kept your promise to him.

Squinting acutely, you tug an arm from the covers, extending it groggily to the annoying mess next to your bed and knocking over a few unidentified items you’re bound to trip over when you wake. Too soon did the screen toggle black, clipping your only source of light and abandoning you in the darkness of your icy bedroom, where memories peeled off the walls.
You were used to it. The whispers of your past echoed unrelenting in your ear. Literally or figuratively, you were used to the lack of light. At least recently, without his smile in your lackluster life, you sensed as though the vigor of living was sapped from every ounce of your blood.

There were many annoying assholes in this world. You came to realize that, especially more than ever since you've been living in Ikebukuro. It was a bustling city, and with that, a bunch of underlying violence was spawned. It was your personal mission to steer clear of that.
However, a man who you were starting to slowly despise enjoyed roping you into dangerous activities. You'd continue spewing out your deep rooted hatred for him, if it weren't for a cough triggered by your cold.
