The Girl Who WaitedLaughter fills the bright skyThe Girl Who Waited2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Children playing hopscotch
And jump rope
They are all getting along
But not her
She sits on a swing
Staring into the deep
They say she is waiting
Always waiting for the one
Who has claimed her heart
Stolen away into the mysteries of space
Exploring time and discovering planets
‘He will return for me one day’
She dared to speak into the silence
Pumping her legs to reach the clouds
Her white dress whips in the wind
She giggled to an unspoken joke
‘Oh yes my love will return’
How they taunted and laughed
‘He is no more but a dream’
Ignoring the jabs
Flicking away those annoying words
They will never truly believe
‘Please come back and finish our game’
Whispering words on the breeze
Leans back, free-falling
Knowing that he will be there to always catch her
‘Tick tock beloved’
The clock is running out
Forever FreeThe little sparrowForever Free1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Knew she would
Have to leave her nest
And fly into
The blue yonder
She perched at the edge
Flapping her wings
She gained altitude
And took off
Halfway hidden in the clouds
She acquired new friends
Joy and Peace
They followed her
To the end of days
She flew into the sun's embrace
Sighing as the ray's kiss her face
Filled with love for her Creator
She sang her own heart song
The Father heard from above

Bumping into the one
Like an air gun.
"It's you!" She exclaimed,
He looked back ashamed,
"I'm sorry for what I have done to you,
I'm not the one for you."
He turned away shamed,
And she restrained her tears,
As she sees the one she cares about,
Ignore her and leave her in doubt.
"What happened to us?"

I approach the doorway with a bouquet of white tulips and look over at Rose. She looks so serene. So content. Her eyelids closed, her dark hair brushed and parted just the way she likes it, her hands clasped gently on the duvet over her stomach. She looks beautiful. At peace. I almost don’t want to disturb her but I need to be by her side. I need to be with her. I only left her side for ten minutes, but that’s ten minutes more than I would like.
Her hospital room is spacious, making her look even

it isn't surprising really. it has been so long since someone said it with any vigour, any affection, that it seems almost natural for her to have forgotten it.
she has lapsed into herself. her shoulders, with their warm-hearted mammal bones, quiver and shake beneath the weight of her own uneasiness. her arms, they shiver and the bruises ripple slowly - rocks in a pond. she has turned fetal.
the voices shudder as they cry out into the emptiness of her soul, their lips casting names against her chasms. none of them stick, none of them strike open the shell of her heart and set her aflame. none of them wake her from this coma, this darkness.
the world contracts and stumbles into yet another winter around her. it freezes her bones and the leafless trees whisper apologies into her matted hair, her flaking skin. the earth sends kisses up through the soles of her feet, the sagging flesh of her backside.
the world apologizes into her and the voices cry but her stoma
Sing and DancePitch me a tempo from the dwellings of your heartSing and Dance11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where I can hear the drum of truth in your heartstrings
The song which sings to me a lullaby of answers
In the otherwise lost world that bleakly shatters around
From your C note that struck down my glass prison
The past that holds me back from the coordination
But your footwork inspires me to join the choreography
I refuse to wear this ball and chain any longer
A declaration for defiance in the name of dance
So that we may twirl and spin with elegant freedom
And when the breath of the music has died low
While whispers of ballet toes sweep across the floor
The scars that blistered my soul and broke the sweet melody
And the festering infection that crippled my legs to waltzing
Are cleansed by your kindness as you urge me forward
For you alone, I swear to sing and dance again

Words are a disease invading our vulnerable minds
Eating its way inside and tearing us apart
disclose terms of endearment
Avoid words that conflict
If you speak, you will become the infected
Poisonous venom seeps in

The Most Beautiful PlacePeeking in the shadows of your soulThe Most Beautiful Place1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Drowning in the dark secrets of your heart
I lay quiet where I can hold my breath
Waiting for you to ease your eyes upon me
Hidden in the crevices of your memories
Our chamber which we have come to know so intimately
Here I can be lost with our synced rhythms
Where it's difficult to tell the difference between you and I
Within the depths of your eyes I find my solitude
Embraced in your warm arms: my safety
Laying in deep slumber of our promises
Only to melt at the touch of your lips
Your smile is the home I've never had
And locked deep in your thoughts
Hearing you whisper how eternal I am
As you swear to love me forever
bATTLE "Oh heck oh heck oh heck....." Devin stuttered, looking around frantically, panic etched into every detail of her innocent features.bATTLE1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
The huge, freakish spectre let out a monstrous, loud-as-frick roar. The Shifter simply blinked its oozing ebony eyes, clearly annoyed at the long-eared, blade-armed beast. I simply rummaged through my pack, finding an orb that blows up. I think. I hadn't tried it, so I can only hope the image of a nuclear explosion in the bloodred orb meant that it would blow this spectre to smithereens. Unfortunately for Devin, she was stunned mid-panic and could only blink and glare at the spectre with her black as coal eyes. Oh... this guy was that dumb 'Rogue Epee' I've heard stories about. Stuns people with roars, impales them on its vicious blades, suffocates them with its spiked tail...
Devin let out a weak "hhh..." and tried to break free of the stun, to no avail.
The Shifter turned to me, "Uh, nerd, you

vestida de recuerdo
y maquillada de tristeza,
en los cristales
empañados de pesar

su triste cantar,
en el vacío
ante el cambio
que arranca alaridos
a la inseguridad,
primogénita del fracaso.
Corazón que se desgarra;
joyas del dolor
que se desprenden
de húmedos alfileres.
Pesar que pesa,
en medio del caos
de una existencia sin rumbo.
Cuando las palabras se diluyen
en un pensamiento
con la nada,
la luz se apaga
y encuentra su redención
en la oscuridad.
“Ven a mí…”

de la desazón
con lacerado corazón
aquellas oscuras entrañas

"Huh? Of course, but not as wonderful as you..." I grinned, blushing furiously behind my mask. Shit, that was corny.
Devin didn't seem to mind. She turned a shade of pinkish, smiling shyly. She stuttered, "O-oh gosh thank you! B-but I'm nothing really... just another Elsen..."
I papped her cheeks, looking into her black orbs she had for eyes, "No, shush," I said, keeping my eyes locked with hers, "You're not nothing, you're very, very, very, much something. Don't ever forget it." Oh fuck, the cornyfest continued.
"Oh wow Coralie... thank you. I-I love you..." Devin turned an even deeper shade of red.
Ahh, I was speechless. She said the words. Those three damned words... she did the do! She-she actually said she loved me. I guess it was sincere considering she gave me a kiss

Altered morals with a skewed perception
Starting riots without expressing cause
I throw kerosene in fires and treat it like applause
Want my name spelled out? Here you go:
I lean away from order, as I enjoy the night
I’m only a straight edge because my straight jacket’s too tight
They wish to wash away my pain
But it’s only part of a gauntlet as I train
My brain to catch up with my thoughts
I’ve always had this mind, why say that it’s lost?
You claim my heart is frozen cold
It’s just armored up while yours is exposed
So jump in my head tell me what do you see
You’ll be staring at your self, looking back at me!
I want to love the Chaos
I tend to ensue
As I embrace the madness

I want to love the Chaos

As I embrace the madness

Smile as I guide

Letting it settle in you like an infect

My wit's so quick it leaves behind thunder
It got me arrested the other day
They said 'sir, please put that knife away'
But it was sharp enough to slice right by
Subtle enough to slip and hide
Imagery so visual there's spotlight and stage
Bow to the audience and present the Word Play
Abstract, deep, or maybe pretentious
If that's weak then save me sweetness
Or just be bitter all the time
I think we need more flavors in our lives
But some phrases are too sour
Some spicy hot
Combine them in a daily diet
Eat up the lot
Synesthesia hides in these words
Taste the color of what you just heard
Compare the senses that I stirred
As each sentence takes the third
Oh Santa what have you got this time?
Were you there to spare a fair
But lazily placed rhyme?
Yeah right twas the night
Before crisscross applesauce
When all through my head
Concepts, points, tangential joints
Changed all of the topics instead
Now say 'bye'
To your mind's eye
As it all becomes
