Passing of the Doll HouseThis is a FFM challenge and a response to The Dolls' House by *ThornyEnglishRose. There is a link in the artist description and I recommend reading that first.Passing of the Doll House2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
After three sons and seven grandsons, I had come to think the doll house was not meant to be my family's heirloom. I knew the boys wouldn't appreciate or embrace its quiet magic. My boys spent their younger years sprawled out in the dirt with toy cars and little green army men pretending they were soldiers in some gruesome war. Their sons were skateboarders and video gamers. The closest they came to dolls were a few action figures that threw ninja stars or swung swords.
Something in my heart ached over the years I watched the paint fade and loosen of the railings to the front door. Who would I teach it all to? Could a stranger truly know about Clara's willful side or the way Henry rubbed Sukie just under her chin?
And then Lily was born.
She was the surprise. With four older brothers,
This GirlYou see this girl, shes not uniqueThis Girl6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Neither a goddess, nor a freak
Two brown eyes, simple hair
Nope, nothing special there
Yes, thats right, shes ordinary
Whats great about her is imaginary
Indeed, what a wonderful imagination
This girls world is her own creation.
You look through the window, what do you see?
The sky, the street, maybe a tree
She looks through the window, what does she see?
A dragon, an angel, a princess or three.
She will fight all evil during math class
She will search for poison in every glass
She will dance to the music in her ears
She will believe everything magical she hears
And when shes alone she dreams best
Only of love, forgetting the rest
She dreams of walking with a prince in the park
A prince that will keep her safe in the dark
She dreams of that boy with the gentle words
A boy that will be with her in every of her worlds
A boy that will show her love can be true
A boy And that boy is you
You are poisonin
FAQ on Muscle WomenWhy do you like muscle women?FAQ on Muscle Women6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Because we find them sexy! Each fan will give you a slightly different answer, but that's the general idea. In the same way that the media tries to convince us that slim women are sexy, and history tells us that fat women were sexy.
Besides that, some fans find muscular women exotic, especially as a warrior-type character.
Aren't they guys with boobs?
It's about how you choose to see it. Muscular women are still very female in behaviour and personality. Women are inwardly strong by nature and constitution (they gotta be for childbearing and raising a family), and muscles are an outward expression of that. Some prefer more muscles, some prefer less, but like the rush that She-Hulk feels as she transforms into a muscle goddess, muscle fans enjoy the feeling of that exhilaration.
Amazons seem mythical to us, because history often prefers to forget about strong and powerful women. Yet such women have always been a part of human civilisation, and
A cloud of DreamsEverything of my experiencesA cloud of Dreams5 years ago in Surrealism More Like This
Are found intoxicated
Floating in a river of rum
Words are blocked and lost
For I too am lost
A cloud of thoughts drifting
Never meeting me
To make dreams reality
Is this mine to live?
The tides fall low
And I am found by myself
Laying idol in the warm
Though I've been moving so long
I just sit and wait
Time, that oh-so-cruel fantasy
Runs by, but does not stop to talk
For fear it will but not exist
And when I can no longer tell
Like my drunken experiences
In which way the up is
And which way the down
A sweet rain starts
And though pleasant,

I told my mom. I told my brother, and I told my friend.
But they just told me to wait until we got there.
Sing out loud, play with your fingers, or maybe braid your hair.
Do whatever you can.
But until we get to the water park, just please hold it in.
So I dug through Mom's purse and tried picking my teeth.
I kicked my legs against my brother's seat
Until he cried "Mom!" and I was told to stop.
I even thought about bunnies and wondered why they hop.
And when we got to the water park, I was already wet.
My brother cried 'Ewww' and Mom was really upset.
I wanted to cry, but my friend said it was ok.
Lots of people wet their pants and then never say.
So if you're ever on a long car ride
And the urge to go should arise
Don't feel so bad if all that squirming won't hold it in
For you are not alone my friend.
