her voice showers like rain on a spring night
and feels so gentle that people misunderstand
They mistake water for weakness
and she indiscriminately swallows garbage
letting words stagnate and pollute her
She tells me ”Baby, I don’t have that passion you do
your fire is so wonderful and brilliant”
and I want to cry because even water can sear and turn to steam
My oceanbaby, you don’t need the tiny flame in me
the sea is home to the largest creatures in the world
and rivers reduce mountains to sandstone
I want you to roar like crashing waves
and let the world know you have the power
to drown mankind
GalateaSometimes, she is my mistressGalatea2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sneaking in through my window and seducing me out of sleep
She keeps me up past sunrise, whispering sweet promises in my ear
Silencing me with her smoldering passion, stripping me until inspiration strikes
She makes me sing, until the sheets are slathered in a thick skin of poetry
Sending shivers up my spine and igniting my senses with her ghostly fingers
She is a lover and a shadow, nowhere to be seen when I wake
Sometimes, she is my psychosis
Suffocating and strong, I can do nothing but submit to her grasp
She seethes, like a snake constricting around me until my sight blurs to smoke
Slowly, she consumes me with sick reverence and searing obsession
She stifles me because she refuses to be restrained, yet I long for her kiss
Severing haggard breaths from my lips, leaving me stunned and aching
She is a succubus and a nightmare, haunting me
Sometimes, she is my saint
Stifling sobs against my shoulder, shaking me until my tears start to fall
She has so much

Bad HabitsS.Bad Habits2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
She always rubs her mouth,
like there’s a secret she can’t say out loud.
Tracing her own lips to prevent a smile, a frown, or a tear.
Sometimes her real smile peeks through, but you can only see it in her squinted almond eyes; dark amber, and soft, just like that bashful grin.
Sometimes a frown shows when no one is looking, followed by a wistful sigh and a simple wipe of the palm across that silent mouth, trying to push the bad feelings and words away.
Sometimes tears roll past her knuckles; she fails to catch them at the source because she’s scared to wipe her eyes raw, so she brushes them away after they’ve fallen in the crook of her pink lips.
She always hides her mouth,
as if she’s afraid to speak.
She never faces you completely,
like you’re not worth her full attention.
Averting her cold gaze, she walks with a haughty, empty stride.
Even when her striking blue eyes are pointed at you, her chin is always tilted up and shoulder

She doesn't like caramels, or creams, or sugar of any kind. It's odd, she thinks, because she has a distinct memory of sitting on the floor of her parents' house, downing Pixi Stix and wearing dozens of Ring Pops, pretending that each came from a prince or a movie star or a millionaire; someone who was handsome and rich and would whisk her away to far-off destinations, where she'd be lavished with every single indulgence she desired.
She wonders when that changed.
She thinks she knows.
Coca-Cola makes her sick now. It's hazy and cloudy, but she can almost piece together why. She remembers sitting in a sleazy bar, twirling her fake ID between her fingers, feeling a strange sense of pride whenever it clacked up against her blood-red acrylics.
He was sweet too, she kind of remembers. She remembers he had a silky voice, and straight white teeth, and a charming way about him.

Speeding off, you look back at the ranch. The purple shadow that you were fleeing from seemed to vanish into thin air. Relieved, you relaxed your muscles a bit. You turned back to face the front of the horse, and saw that you were going in the direction of Hyrule Castle Town.
Looking back at the boy with a questioning look, you asked him, "Where are we going?"
He calmly replied, "I think we should report the incident." You nodded,
"Right. By the way, my name is [y/n]."
"That's a nice name."
You smiled at his compliment, and let out a quiet murmur of thanks.
"I'm Link, and my horse's name is Epona."
Link pulled on Epona's reins, instructing her to slow down. Looking around, you realised something.
"Hey, Link, why are there no monsters anywhere?" Realising this, Link also had a quick glance around, and soon saw that you were right.
"I'm not sure... I'd assume that it has something to do with the purple glow from earlier," he suggested.
"Yeah, you're probably right," you nodded in agreeme

The thought always hits me in the quiet moments, you know, the ones in between talking and making out, and you yelling at me not to embarrass you in front of everyone. Those moments.
I mean, don't take this the wrong way, but I could do better.
(no, never. there's nothing better than you)
You're kind of bland and boring-looking.
(and beautiful and amazing and everything I've ever wanted)
Kind of a dime-a-dozen, really...
(how are you even real? people like you only exist in fairy tales)
So, why do I need you all of a sudden? Wasn't I doing fine before you?
(I was living to meet you)
Why do I look forward to talking to you, to seeing you? Why do I worry when you don't respond to my texts fast enough? Lord knows I don't care when other people ignore the beeps...
(I didn't know there were so many ways you can say "fuck" and feel bad)
Maybe it's the way you worry about me; the anxious voice messages when I sleep through

You back up against the tree trunk as much as you can and pull your sword out of its sheath. One of the creatures had already reached your branch. Slashing your sword at it, you manage to knock the skeletal creature out of the tree. Every time one got to your branch, you thrusted the sword at it, sending bones flying. Right as you were about to bring the blade down on one in front of you, an arrow hits it. In shock, you step back a bit and move your head to face the direction the arrow came from, and you saw a boy with golden hair who looked your age, clad in green. In his hand was a bow, and a quiver on his back. The boy skilfully reached for his back, pulled an arrow out of the quiver and fired it at the skeleton that was now on your branch. You gasped in awe and looked back at the creatures, one by one getting shot down. Arrows flied past your head like streaks of light. You didn't dare to move.
After all of the monsters were defeated, you jumped out of the tree and cautiously moved

Trying on spectacles seemed almost no different than trying on a new pair of jeans. Instead of revealing the new attire with a dramatic swish of a dressing curtain, it was the turn of his head and the swish of wavy blonde hair that preluded the reveal.
You had no idea there could be so many different kinds of glasses; sure, there were the different patterns for the earhooks and maybe different shapes, but there were just so many! In fact, each time he spun back around to you, he'd found a completely new variation. So many to choose from, how would someone decide on just one?
Each time Matthew turned to look at you with a new pair of specs balancing on his nose, he just made every one of them look good. Was it how he was choosing them? Did he just happen to find the ones that fit his face well?
Or perhaps you're wearing some rose-colored glasses of your own.

His eyes stopped swirling as he eyes snapped back to normal. He looked at me and gasped in shock, running his fingers through his pink hair.
“I’ve gone mad, have I poppet,” he asked, as he got on his knees with tears close to coming down his face.

A day or so had passed, and you were sprawled out on the roof with Skull Kid sitting next to you, staring into what you assumed was space. You stomach, apparently empty, made a loud noise comparable to that of a dying whale. The Skull Kid, still daydreaming or whatever it was that he was doing, didn't seem to notice.
You sat up and looked at him, "Skull Kid?"
He grunted his typical grunt in response.
Another grunt met your ears, annoying you somewhat.
"Do you expect me to sit here and starve-" He cut you off before you could finish.
"Yep, pretty much," he sniggered.
"This isn't funny! And when are you gonna turn Link back into Link?"
He made a grunt that seemed to have three syllables, which you assumed meant "I don't know."
You glared at him and stood up, heading to peer over the edge of the roof.
"Don't fall," he muttered. You weren't sure if it was because he didn't want you to die or if he didn't feel like using his magic.

But yeah, a weird thing happened this morning that I think I should tell you. It's kinda your fault anyway.
So when I woke up, I stretched, and yawned, ya know, all the basic stuff people do when they wake up. And then I did my quick inventory of myself. A guy like me with God knows what kind of lifestyle needs to be aware that he has both hands and kidneys every day.
So I counted, ten toes, ten fingers, two hands, two feet, both kidneys, I assume. No scars, at least none I can't remember. I didn't wake up in a dingy apartment (no dingier than mine at least) in a tub full of ice so I guess I'm good.

The windows from outside were almost completely frosted in snow and ice. Intricate little patterns weaved around the frame and served as an interesting barrier between the warmth of the small cafe and the chilly world outside. Inside, friends and family shared warming drinks, and lovers played gentle battles with their feet beneath the tables. Outside, though it was too foggy to see, folks scurried through newfallen snow while couples huddled together for warmth and an excuse for intimacy in public. That itself reminded you of someone back at home, and a small smile tucked the corners of your lips.
"So how've you been with your Canada model?"

Summary: Three years after the events of the movie, Astrid makes a choice.
Astrid had been out of sorts lately.
She wasn't sure why. Nothing had really changed. Hiccup was still Hiccup, kind, intelligent, and awkwardly self-confident. Ruffnut was still vain, crazy, and wild. And the guys still teetered the line between being amusing and being annoying. The only thing that seemed to have changed was Astrid. It was confusing, and frustrating, and the only thing she knew was that she had to do something about it.
Of course Hiccup could tell. He bore the brunt of her bad moods, obviously. And he wanted to talk about it, had been trying to get her to increasingly often over the past few weeks. She always brushed him off, because how could you have a talk when you had no idea what to say? Well, he'd get his talk tod

Even during the busiest hour of the day, the chill and the stacking snow only slightly hindered the usual bustle of the city crowd. Figures hidden in desperate warmth skittered down the streets and sidewalks, either alone or in groups, the promise of indoor heating beckoning them to swiftly reach their destinations. The warmest coats were donned, and thick caps and heavy scarves hid the identities of once-familiar faces. Older women shuffled their children indoors as quick as they could, hoping in exasperation that perhaps the younglings would stop complaining about their frosted fingers; beneath the snow-covered awning, long forgotten by a forgetful shop employee, stood a shivering couple sharing a rapidly-cooling mug of hot chocolate, to which they'd exchange sweet kisses despite the cold; heavy-coated businessmen quickly shuffled across the snow-stained sidewalk, cursing under their breaths as each misplaced step nearly send them flying.
