The FallLet me tell you a story. The story of two best friends who ended up being a tragedy. This story was long before Romeo and Juliet ever came out, and the result is not quite the same.The Fall in Short Stories More Like This
There were two people first of all. Two guys, one a vampire and the other an immortal being. They knew each other right when the vampire had been born, and they had stuck through it all.
Until something came between them.
Or rather someone. In a rather cliche story almost, a woman came between the pair. Her skin was of porcelain white, her hair the color of a raven's feathers. And her eyes....
Her eyes that entranced a man as soon as they dare look into those emerald orbs that knew too much and saw too much.
The vampire met her first. A chance encounter, a brief touch of hands, and they were smitten with each other. Or at least the vampire was, and his heart opened up for the one woman he thought he would have for a lifetime.
Until the immortal claimed her for his own, that same night. Despite the years

No more stars twinkle

It is what it is
Down to the deepest shadows
Your heart knows
Song of stars, survive...
Like all the stars
In the dark of night
One by one
The painted sky
Stand with all you can

Winter Sleep - One NightThe snow seemed strange to her...if only because it felt like she was seeing it for the first time.Winter Sleep - One Night in Short Stories More Like This
Moments before the lights of the bus station had turned off, leaving he snow-blanketed side walk in shadow. Orange street lights from across the street lit everything in an awkward amber glow, shadows crossing each other from each lamp's cone of light. The world seemed so alien to her then, until the snow began to fall again and her vision focused on the individual flakes, small balls of ice.
Somewhere in the back of her mind she remembered being told that every snowflake had it's own design, it's own pattern. Each snow flake that fell from the sky was an individual.
It felt a little silly now, since she was standing there alone...an individual. The idea seemed a little lonely, now...
The station's security had informed her it was midnight after waking her up and had politely, but sternly, ushered her out the door. It wasn't until he had locked the doors after she was out that she realiz

Good and bad
The written story of a life
Gone, done and passed me
I remember all the things
All the words, you'd never say
I walk among the trees
And feel your hand in mine
Listening to the leaves
Hiding us here
In a secret place, our little world
Sometimes...I could see a smile on your face
Maybe you're real...
Maybe you're there...
If I close my eyes and feel
The rain coming down
Pounding the ground
I wish I could fall too
Into warm arms
No more games
No more pain
Just us in the rain
It's a trickling, tickling feeling
Of a tear leaving a trail
Down cold skin
It's a spark fighting
The dousing, chill pain
Fighting back loneliness
Our fire in the rain
Maybe I'll see...
Maybe I'll feel...
I'll call out
Just one word
From your unseen lips
The most beautiful moments
Are both good and bad
And most secret wish
Shining like a fire in me
Still having the hope
You always, always be

Is the invaded sea
Row on row
In the poisoned rain
Silent screams of memory
Harpooned and netted
Choked on greed
And inflamed insanity
Into an endless pool
Of shattered dreams
Don't shed a tear
For the tides
Don't shed a tear
Don't hang your head
Screams that wont be denied
On harpoons and nets
Choked on greed
And your insanity
Into an endless time
So long as there is you
There will be
Lost in time
So long ago
Not so far gone
To not be remembered
No wreaths of red
No prayers are said
No memories, just
Choking on your
First Snow::A PostThe flakes of snow that fell were large and heavy, but drifted down on the evening air like feathers from the clouds unseen above. Everything had a blue or orange tinge to it, depending where you stood near the street lamps, some new, some old. It was a definite change of seasons, watching the lamp lighters moving around to the old fashioned stores, lighting the actual lamps for the night, while the more modern electric lamps buzzed to life one by one as six-o-clock rang up on everyone's clocks. Even the town's clock tower, a part of the old town hall, dinged and donged like always, but seemed more subdued, almost in reverence of the soft and quiet, first winter snow.First Snow::A Post in General Fiction More Like This
The older customers had been talking about the coming snowfall for a week, making sure their vegetables were taken in, rose bushes covered and fallen leaves raked and cleaned away. Talk of the Halloween not long before and the Thanksgiving coming up, and even comments on Christmas recipes this year that all the old ladies

Starving ArtistShe held an aquamarine crayonStarving Artist in Free Verse More Like This
in between her chubby little fingers
Her small hand swallowed it
A glow enveloped her cyan eyes,
like firecrackers on the Fourth of July
She scribbled wildly,
with no direction
She held a marigold pencil
in between her slim fingers-
no longer chubby, but she thought they were
Her collarbones smiled through her skin,
even though she did not
But she still doodled,
eating her mistakes
She held a ballpoint pen
in between her brittle bones-
they were supposed to be fingers
Her ribcage protruded like shelves at the market,
however held no food: only pain
But she still drew,
and devoured the ink
She was a starving artist,
and art was all she ate.

crossed pinkies like grade-schoolers,
I could only believe those words
lodged in your heart
like they did mine
because every time I think back
I can't help but remember the
under star lit constellations,
and study sessions where we
learned more about each other
than we did Biology
but now it's clear
that each beat of your heart
has made those words fade,
and you could care less
about crossed pinkies
but I'll still see you,
and hear your voice
and I'll still wish
the meaning hadn't changed-

AlcoholicYour tux is the colorAlcoholic in Free Verse More Like This
of a coal miner’s face
after a long, hard day of work-
something you’ve never
had to experience
yet you talk as though
you’re just as worn out;
your trivial chit-chat
is turning syrupy with every sip,
although your sentences
aren’t getting any sweeter
you grab another glass
of the effervescent liquid,
hoping the sea of people
will turn to black dust,
and it will be dark enough
for you to fall asleep
as you walk tipsily to the bathroom,
the overpaid opera singer
belts her last high note- a bit too high;
your crystal glass shatters
into a thousand pieces
And with it, you shatter too.
