Cat Lady
She is a paradox, puss and me. Every woman is a cat exhausted by love until she is alone in an empty room where even echoes dare not whisper. She wants someone to see her with less-than-human eyes. She wants to be consoled in her frailty and revered in her ferocity. She wants a warm place to sleep without the heaviness of strings. She wants to eat without shame.

Intrusive Thoughts Repetitive Behaviors
"Characterized By Intrusive Thoughts & Repetitive Behaviors" Even as I swore to never hurt her again I could feel the lie as it coated my teeth, questioning what she had done to deserve food that day, let alone my love.

Not To Be Sung While Accompanied By A Lyre
I wanted to be you, Sappho, with words that drip like so much nectar from the flower of my heart. Instead my poetry runs like blood and water down my legs before circling the drain and leaving me to rot somewhere, discarded. "You try too hard," he said. Just toss me off the Leucadian. "You don't try hard enough," she said. And that leaves me here, an island caught between a black-and-white conclusion I had no part in deciding.

Heck this day. Too cold and gray. Don't want to work; don't want to play. I want to nap my life away.

RAAVE: ThomasInTheClouds
Sharing Communion Amongst Creation by ThomasInTheClouds I. The sun stretches her caressing hands. Balancing on the horizon, it seems. Last rays of day scatter across the lands. I like the personification of the sun as female; very often the sun is personified as male, so you make an interesting choice to use the pronoun "her", and it adds a deeper layer than it may initially seem with a connotation of gentleness more often attributed to femininity.  Bearing that in mind, the beauty of the first line is weakened slightly by the second.  The image of a female caressing the earth would be strengthened by a simple change of removing "on" in

RAANT One: Part I
 Bonnie let the frustrated car pass her and gathered her wits enough to pull over before she caused an accident for lack of clear eyesight.  She turned at the next right, which happened to be the local Catholic Church parking lot. There's nothing wrong with beating around the bush and getting into the meat of the story, however there's a couple no-no's right off the bat here, not limited to the grammatical error of capitalizing "catholic" and "church".  If "frustrated car" made you blink, then you've caught on to the fact that this is just bad description.  It's an attempt to marry two differing concepts that doesn't work here.  When using

DFC 2015 Day 15: Phantasmagoria
Bird girl knows that          she can fly. She spreads her arms          free and wide-- the surf down low,          the sky up; toes at cliff's edge,          set to glide. He takes her wrists,          holds her back. He speaks to her,          a soft plea. His words are wind          on her back. She steps. She falls          in the sea.

I'm going to be writing more.  I don't care if it's shit, I just need the garbage in my soul to be out of me.

DFC 2016 is Here!
So...this year has been really shit.  Between death and insanity, I'm ready to tell 2016 to not let the door hit it on the ass on its way out.  But...let's end on a high note. kiwi-damnation (https://www.deviantart.com/kiwi-damnation) has yet again done an amazing job of creating the December Form Challenge chart and (as always) it looks amazing. So friends, poets, artists, I encourage anyone and everyone to give this thing a shot!  Every year has turned out some really incredible poetry from all participants, and I'm really looking forward to reading what poetic contributions turn up this year. %ProjectDFC (https://www.deviantart.com/projectdfc) is a go-go, baby!

lol, that's okay; I am very scatterbrained when it comes to my own following of others and frequently think I am when I'm not.  I really need to go through and follow everyone that participated in DFC, for instance, that I'm already not.  ^^;
