Literature
The Power of Fiction
Never underestimate the power of fiction
It powers the spirit and fuels the soul.
It may not be real, but I do not lie when I say
that it can swallow you whole.
The strength of fiction
can hold a mirror to the self
be it the magic or science
aliens or elves.
Fiction is a serious thing
Do not make of it, light.
Because who does not tell themselves a story
when the darkness, frights?
So, watch your films
and read your books
let them absorb you
let your world be shook

Literature
Anxiety
I chill to the touch
but thrill to the sound.
I'm running in circles
but cannot calm down
Thrills mean nothing
but they are my everyday
I do not seek them out
but they find me, anyways.
They keep me awake
as I lie down to sleep
Can't relax and can't calm down
my pulse they keep.
They are my pain and strife.
But it gives my life size.
"Not everything can be an emergency"
but I can't lift up my eyes

Literature
All My Little Thorns
All my little thorns
sting so beautifully.
They mimic nails
and prick me perfectly.
Despite my pretty thorns
I am not a rose.
I also bear no fruit
I am not what you chose.
My pricks have a poison
I am deadly to the touch
Let none of your hands embrace mine.
I am not pretty to watch.
But neither am I strong
my branches wither in the cold
and suffer through the heat
I shall not live to be old

Literature
Stars and Tears
A sky full of stars.
A sky full of tears.
Look to the heavens
and it looks back over years.
Sing out the name
of all your gods
and maybe they'll answer
and defy great odds.
Is there something beyond
this veil of stars and tears?
Something we all look for,
a visible ill to cure.
But we float through
space and time
Waiting for an answer,
waiting for a sign.

Literature
Falling Through the Years
Falling through the years
like diving off a cliff-side
but the passing of time
is the only way to know
that we're really alive.
We plummet swiftly
moment by minute
second by day
and we may never know
what the next few inches will bring
Because we're ever falling
past days and months and years
wasting time or spending time
Is there really a difference?
Because one day, we'll hit the ground

Literature
The Sound of Emptiness
Breaths and sighs like thunder
in the silence of a room
Like the sound of emptiness
And the smell of hanging gloom.
For sadness makes you noise, you see
and it's not the echo of tears
it's the unraveling of happiness
and the wiping out of years
In that hollow void, the slightest
movements boom
When you are left alone
in the empty of your tomb.

Literature
Dreams are Coming
Beware! Dreams are coming
They approach in the night
to conquer sleeping minds
and control you in the light.
Dreams drive you forward
but fear their siren song.
Because the goals are endless
and the path is long.
Each step is on
ice that is thin
Dreams cannot pull you out
but can help you in.
So, be on guard
against dreams that may come.
Keep an eye over your shoulder
because they do not sneak, but run.
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine

Literature
Whatever
Whatever gods are made of.
Flesh and bone and destiny,
stars and worlds beyond,
what's left of you and the rest of me.
Whatever eternity is made of.
Dark and light
and love and hope
chasing day into the night.
Whatever death is made of.
endless nothings of cascading brilliance
and, of course, the void:
the stuff of eternal distance.

Literature
Tell It to the Trees
Tell the forest that you love him
but don't miss him for the trees.
Spread your love to fields and streams,
the flowers and the bees.
Fear not the laughter.
Listen not to the scorn
To nature shall you go
and from nature were you born.
You are organic
and so are the trees
You are not of glass and steel
You are the grass and streams.
Be proud of your forests
and nurture as they grow
Be the rain the heals them
and the wind that blows.

Literature
Life at the End of the World
What good is the sanctity of life
at the end of the world?
What good is calling something "scared"
when the bombs start to whirl?
Why call a holy place, "holy"
when those that praise there
lie dead all around
decomposing in the toxic air.
It's the end of the world, boys
Pull yourself up by your own straps
and leave the choices to a men who call themselves gods
We won't survive this, but then, perhaps.

Literature
Pessimist
Don't climb to the stars.
Build a box around yourself
and wait for the sky to fall
So build them strong and tall.
Don't seek meaning in the rain
Just stay inside and cower
until it all goes away
your week and the lifetime of your days.
Huddle and hide
because outside is not what it's meant to be.
It's frightening and cruel
like it was under a madman's rule.
Pessimist, optimist.
All the same in the end.
One is smiling, one is not
One stays in the kitchen, the other's too hot.

Literature
Falling Short
Falling short, again and again
in a million different ways.
Beyond the scope of one man's eyes
beyond what I can say.
Constipated emotions,
short of what I can hold.
Till my linoleum deathbed
which will be before I'm old.
“Lived slowly, fell short, died young”
will be my epitaph
and maybe, one day
it will make you laugh

Literature
Les Miserables - Love in Cream and Sugar
Prompt: A works at a coffee shop and B goes there for the first time. B usually gets a lot of cream and sugar for their coffee, but they are captivated by A and want to impress them, so they order their coffee black and attempts to drink the whole thing
This was a choice that had been a long time in coming. The choice to open a coffee shop was a dream Combeferre's parents had for a long time, and today, that dream was realized. The doors were open and, not having classes that day, he worked at the coffee shop.
At about 3'o' clock, wandering home from class, Enjolras cast his big, blue eyes to the modest sidewalk sign that announced that it was a “grand opening”. The logo was not one he recognized as a chain so he went in. It was a nice place with comfortable chairs and a delectable smell in the air. He took his headphones out and approached the counter. Ordered his black/two sugar coffee and one that was basically a hot coffee milkshake for Courfeyrac.
He thought he'd found

Literature
Soul of Iron
Your soul is made of iron bars
in a cage of folded steel.
It holds all our cares
in a bandage that won't heal.
Lock out the world
while holding in the pain.
Despite what they say
problems shared is not a problem twained
There is screaming inside.
In spite of the facade
But the void within
has sharpened claws

Literature
In The Face of Death
In the face of death,
life is fresh air.
It's the cool water in the desert.
The smile in an ocean of glares.
In the face of death.
There is still beauty in song
and happiness in the world
even if we much search, long.
In the face of death,
there is much philosophizing to be done
Despite the sun in the sky
and children on the run
Though, in the face of death
Sometimes, there is just death
an absence of life
and a lack of breath
