the scars on your shouldersthe scars on your shoulders
are braille to me, so that i
can read your skin, so that i
can know you better.
i like to listen to your heartbeat
and how it resounds differently
from mine, just so beautifully
like two songs played in tandem
to harmonise in rounds;
i like to hold your hands
and rub your back
so that maybe my love
can find its way through your pores
and seep into your blood
(never can i find the right words
to tell you just the way you feel to me)
and to think that and how i nearly missed you
makes me miss you more
every minute and mile we spend
i can't sleep with another body
in my bed,
but sleeping without you
He doesn't write poetry anymore.He doesn’t write poetry anymore,
even if he still collects it, reads it, saves it, treasures
faded verses from his wife the way connoisseurs
savor vinyl over metallic rainbows on disc.
I don’t mind not knowing, but I can’t stand not asking.
The record needle hits the groove wrong;
he stumbles over words that aren’t there,
rummaging for an answer he doesn’t really have.
He doesn’t write poetry anymore
and his confusion is strangely endearing.
But there’s a lyricism to his words that I love,
poetic lines inserted between the daily grind
of character names and who said what;
voiceless boys in white a
PocketLeftover religion in the pocket
Of my trenchcoat
A key that unlocks nothing
A penny, a scrap of paper
With half of your name
Written in black ink
A song that is usually in my head
In the shriveled carcass
Of a long-dead dream
In the pocket
Of my trenchcoat
With the lint
SurelyIt was raining
when we kissed for the first time,
for the last time.
sunk into the shrunken space
between our bodies
and divided us
like nothing could before,
like everything will
until that never again
when we will
see each other once more,
Your eyes were
that bewitching shade
of dull brown blue
with all of the light darkness
in a placid pond
around a pupil
overflowing with vacancy,
and my frowning smile.
The winter heat
fell like a rising tide
for our every breath
was another death
so black and full of life --
embracing our boiled ice skin
as we drew apart,
came together and broke free
Condemnedbeneath the beaten earth they lay,
their dreams condemned to ashes,
and our restless bodies stretch,
for forgiveness, for direction –
survivors of the abyss,
amidst wide-eye, silent soldiers –
so many dead, so many maimed,
how many graves are we standing on, today?
Life, Death And A Pork Chop SandwichAll tangled up, hard to breathe
This steel cloud day that swirls
With heat and pounding hammers
I shake in my boots and cough up
Blood, rust and damaged flesh
Waiting for the second coming
Maybe next time around there'll be
Some chance for more than this
A twisted barbed wire halo
Wrapped tight around my skull
Blinding white light aura
Swarming with flies I'm flying
To pieces, thousands of shards
Cannot be brought back together
But I will remember the summer
Of my first Chevrolet in each bit
Gleaming bits of glass in the desert
Each reflecting a different moment
Still, now, enduring until the waves
Of a new ocean sweep them away
A sister is like a soul mate;
Someone who is always there
to guide me through fate.
A sister is,
a part of childhood that I cannot erase;
A sister like you,
is one that I would never replace
because you always know how to
put a smile on my face.
I know I can depend on you
to always be there for me;
This is one hundred percent guaranteed!
I've had great memories with you
in the past;
and I hope there are many more
in the future.
Onceyour beauty lies restless behind those
hills, where you fought valiantly. and
the man you once were was brave and kind,
but now you are possessed by a passenger

the man you once were is forgotten, and
the man you are today, is only a ghost, a
shadow, of what you were before.

There’s a knife turnin in my soft parts
And heat burnin my mind on hard starts
The motors runnin but I lost the wheel
Just want it to be numb don’t wanna feel
Take two steps back and put it in park
Before I leave scarred up black marks
I need a u-turn on this highway
But can’t go back on the by-way
So look ahead, the pavement goes on
Break the rear-view mirror it’s gone
Put it in drive

Lost In ConfusionMy mind is spinning without a rest
emotions whirl and twirl around
A merry-go-round gaining speed
Until the world blurrs before my eyes
What's happening? What's going on?
The simplest thought slips away
Right from my mind, fading so fast
Trying to focus, I stare and stare
Until my eyes are heavy and unclear.
I don't understand, what is going on...
Emotions rise and fall again
Within the blink of an eye
I'm crying, laughing, and depressed
A rollercoaster ride that never ends
Am I losing my mind in this ?
I try to close my eyes and rest
But the world spins me around
I feel like I am failing this test
Voices and noisies echo in my min

Why meI wanted sleep very badly
I tried my hardest to rest
I closed my eyes and laid there
But sleep didn’t come easy
I would doze off
And wake back up
Why me? When I know I have to be up at 3 AM.
FossilizedLiving proof of fossils alive,
and no horseshoe-crab am I.
Nor, inhabitable harsh compression of plates,
residing under humid marsh-scapes.
I mold into the walls, as chalky old coal.
But I am no mineral, no era.
I am not, Mesozoic.
Through the ages
silver, gold and heroic.
I remain a still-life; and no Iduna's apples would retain my youth
No magic fountains, or time devices, or wrist watches.
I am the machine of time.
The watcher, omnipotent, the wise.
no God am I
Somewhere, sweet tangy sap trolleys down cracked bark.
Somewhere, celestial bodies erupt unseen.
Somewhere, a abrupt breeze blows overturned bi-cycle tire
Depth of the Heart pt.2Part Two
Asher and Samuel leaned against a tall shady pine, watching Valencia at the edge of the lake. Samuel, a tall, lanky boy with sandy hair, wrung his hands in anticipation.
Shes weaker, Samuel snarled, manipulating two squirrels to battle. Asher sighed. Mind controllers were very cocky, but upon closer inspection, Asher realized that something was wrong with Val. The little American mutant, seeming so lost and alone when Asher found him in a railway car, was actually very crafty.
Valencia sat by the edge of the lake, her jeans soaked up to the knees. The day was warm and damp, but Valencia felt cold shuddering
Depth of the Heart, pt. 1The Depth of the Heart
A joint collaboration thought up by Chloe (padfootpal) and written by Amber (moonymarauder)
The rain dripped steadily onto the town of Campbell River, a small town thought very boring by most inhabitants. This very rain encouraged most of its inhabitants to crack out umbrellas and rush for the dryness of their own homes. However, no two people are the same, and it was on this day that two extraordinary people stood in the soaking November rain. They were a boy and a girl, and they were both very upset.
The boy, dressed in fading grey jeans, peeling Converse, and a blue band jacket obviously too big for him hung his h

A Lovely Death beside youLovely Death by Your Side
Come dance with me,
Come dance with me,
Beneath the waves and foam
Of the sea.
The tide is high,
The tide is high,
Storm clouds overhead,
But you dont sigh.
Under I go,
Under I go,
The sunlight gone,
But where you are, I dont know.
My breath leaves,
My breath leaves,
Through gently parted lips,
It doesnt come back, and everyone grieves.
A Nasty AffairCould you hold in my gaze,
Drinking in our separate ways?
And spiting the world
With your eyes?
Would you love me today?
Holding me close, fall away
Until nothing remains
And nothing restrains.
And the book, it unfurled
While everyone sighs.
You tired to distance yourself,
Putting me up on a shelf.
But that was wrong, as you realize.
Because putting me away,
While with another girl you play,
Spells your out immediate demise.
Around the headstone the wind whirls,
And everyone cries.
I threw the stone first,
Your perfect world bursts,
But nobody cares.
You hold your tears in,
Pretending you win.
But inside the sea
Let me paint you a picture:
Do you see its wonderful splendor?
See the cloudless spring skies,
Taste the stormy seas toil.
Gaze at its impeccable quality.
Prickly needles on a pine tree,
The shiny skin of an apple.
Put them together.
Just Blue and Green?
A warm summer sky, the wind cooling your brow,
Whispering through the soft blades of grass
Never just Blue and Green.
A Reason to LiveIf only she had the guts to actually do it, to just leap among the cold waves and sink in death among the fish. She breathed in the smell and taste of saltwater, and water sprays hit her face, neck, and chest. She shivered slightly in the breeze from the waves, but she wasn’t really bothered by the chill. What weighed on her mind was something much deeper than the weather.
A pang of apprehension penetrated her heart as she envisioned her body being plunged into the water and weighted down by the strong waves. She thought about what it would be like to gulp in mouthful after mouthful of water, choking and never feeling any relief, b
