The Dance Of The MothFew have ever witnessed the dancing of the mothThe Dance Of The Moth4 years ago in Poetry More Like This
When he flits across the ceiling in the night
A most magical scene as he dances back and forth
And he's never lacking elegance in flight
As he swoops and twirls to a song all his own
A song, of which, us humans will never hear
And at first glance he appears to dance alone
A closer look reveals that something's there
Once he had a partner he loved with all his heart
And when she passed she left a piece behind
For their souls could not bear to ever have to part
So she left her shadow there for him to find
For this serenade's designed not for one but two
It's a tribute for the lovers o

I'd Play The FoolI can be the one to play the fool for youI'd Play The Fool4 years ago in Poetry More Like This
So honey, no more crying, dry your tears
There's nothing at all that I wouldn't do
Hang in there it's just a few more years
I'd do anything for you, you know I would
And I'd play the fool if only for a smile
I'd move the earth for you, dear, if I could
Stay, here, in my arms now for a while
Let sweet slumber take you over, I am here
Darling, lay your head down, rest your eyes
I'll play the knight and chase away your fear
I'd be your angel watching til you rise
And I'll trek the many miles if you ask me
I'd take the pain and sorrow as my own
I'd make everything alright, as it should be

like a flame burning out.
Making their happiness dwindle,
those tragic seconds defining their life.
The quake was now gone,
and the Earth was no more frustrated.
She had vented all her anger,
and had settled back to a state of calmness.
The man had gone frantic,
just like many other men.
Looking everywhere for his family,
a wife, two daughters and a son.
And he was lucky,
very lucky indeed.
He found them all,
and the family reunited with a passing sense of glee.
They were together again,
they were all alive.
It was so hard to believe,
when so many around them had died.

There were glowing glass chambers, containing various liquids, with tubes and pumps connecting to whatever floated inside. Two workbenches were pressed against the front and right walls, and covered in diagrams, bits of electronics and machinery, torture tools, and blood spatter. On the back wall were computer screens displaying readouts from the various experiments and machines. In the far left corner, the door to a

It is a cool fall day. As the scene fades in from black, a man is kneeling on a sidewalk, wearing full regency attire and a giant white wig. His face is powdered white, his lips are red, and he's got a mole painted onto his cheek. He is placing regular silver spoons onto a sidewalk methodically, in the shape of a hopscotch board. The hopscotch board is the kind where it's rounded at the top, and includes all the numbers.
