two magpies and the dull ache of menstrual cramps
tapping on. Death's window
sleeps in all our bones,
a dripping water faucet.
Brittle things--like love,
a jar of not-quite-nothing--
small and fragile and ours
are the presences we carry
while running from the moon.

you glance down at the table. His stare is piercing.
"Embrace the possibility that you're not even here, that this is all a dream."
You keep your eye on him as he leans in closer…
"Now release the presumption that it is your dream."
He gets up and walks away. You stay seated watching the smoke rise from the still lit cigarette in the ashtray.

Thrice DeniedIf you asked it of me;Thrice Denied2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I would take the stars,
and throw them to earth...
...so you could watch the cities burn.
I would paint the sky with blood;
and raze the mountains to dust...
...if you should so wish it.
I'll play God,
and like Peter, you can reject or accept.
While the rooster lies fallow;
and the incredulity shivers.
And yet, with all this destruction at my fingertips,
you ask me none of these things.
And I am left hanging from the universe by a thread frayed to the last filament.
Hanging onto existence by the mere proclamation of your love,
and the promise that I should fail...
...if only you would fall with me.

on illuminated streets
under starless skies
painted an abysmal black.
Fraudulent counterfeit lamps
glow brighter than the real deal
as long as they stand
within arms' reach
and eyes' sight.
Whilst emitting their deceitful luminescence,
these too-good-to-be-true stars,
so close to us,
mask the glow of those they imitate
with the dazzling daze they produce,
and it sadly seems as though
most of us accept these fakes.
So, under starless skies
painted an abysmal black,
on falsely illuminated streets
is where I speak my wishes;
I wish I could see
those stifled stars again.
What do you wish for?

After lunch was over, everyone went back to their seats and the teacher returns to continue his teaching lesson, and Tomoko couldn't stop thinking about you and what you said before. Be friends with her? It's the first time she ever heard in her whole life. It's like it was from a manga she read a few weeks ago.
While she's in a daze, she didn't noticed the teacher walking towards her, "Um, Kuroki?" She didn't hear him and was still thinking about you, "Kuroki?" No response. "Ahem!" This time she noticed and jumped by the teacher's loud voice.
She slowly turned around and faced to the teacher with a nervous face, "Y-Yes...?" she stuttered, "Do you remember what page we are now studying?" the teacher asked, which caused Tomoko to panic. 'Crap! I didn't paid attention! If I screw up, everyone will stare at me! Think, dammit!' "Uh...well, I, um..." Tomoko couldn't think of an explanation and was about to lose it.

The teen let out a cry of agony as you slumped on a branch, un-moving. The beast that had caused it all was reaching towards you to finish the job.
With determination firing his movements , Jean sliced though the titans neck , effectively stopping it from touching you. It smashed to the ground with a crash , defeated.
Once Jean made sure the thing was dead, he quickly maneuvered to the tree you resided on. You were still immobile and though you were breathing , he still couldn't help but rush to get you.

and told him he had a heart of gold.
But behind the scenes and cheery talks
they were both just as damaged and hurt
with so many secrets floating, untold.
He had his monsters to battle,
she didn't stand in a better place
yet she pulled him up to his feet,
and glued all these cracks in his soul.
She was a strong lady,
a hidden gem among many rocks,
she shared her dreams and laughter
but sometimes she cried on his shoulder
and pointed at the demons,
who forced a lump to build in her throat.
She always insisted he was being sweet
when he spoke about her majestic allure
truth be told, he never understood
how can someone go through such hurt
and still have enough power to stand tall.
He learned the answer later on though,
when she took his breath in awe
and taught him how to smile anew
Along came an angel, he'd joke
yet for her, he swore a vow
to never let go, until death takes its dues.

feeling the weight, gripping it tight.
Unworthy of life, unworthy of love:
is it worth continuing the fight?
Everything I think I know
is proven to be a lie.
I cut my finger on the edge;
with one more cut, I can die.
My life is unnatural, a deception,
and a farce worthy of satire.
I feel that my deeds will go unnoticed
in the long run when I retire.
I have left no lasting impression
on anyone who knows who I am.
I will leave as I came in to life:
slaughter given to a lamb.
A mess of red will be all that's left.
The air will escape my lungs.
I may smile the way my grandfather did.
I may be nothing more than a ladder's rung.
Once I'm gone, people won't have to care
or worry or fret about me anymore.
They won't have to think about me as good,
as bad, as a person, as a whore.
Do I die for the betterment of the world?
Do I die for selfish reasons unknown?
Do I take my life to fertilize a doomed planet,
which will become desolate and overgrown?

After that faithful night that you had encountered Jean, you two began to try and get to know the person your lover became in this life. It was a little strange at first, but all of the emotions you carried for him in that past life never seemed to change, and neither did his. Even just through talking to him, your life seemed to become manageable again, and you were happy.
It took only a month before you two had decided to move in together. All of your friends were very concerned that you had only been dating this guy, who they had never even heard of before, for a month and you were already moving in with him.
