I Am FlawedFrom body to soul and in between,I Am Flawed20 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
They blotch the parchment that is me;
I know of worse flaws I have seen,
I am flawed.
I sometimes lose my temper,
Use my mouth before my mind;
I ponder things I could do better,
And regret them for a time.
I can be harsh, I can be blunt,
I tend to hide my thoughts;
But this is far from what I want:
To be in someone's heart.
Comparisons are hard to make
Since we are all unique.
But half the time my words are fake;
The real me is a freak.
These flaws define me, describe me—
They make me what I am.
In that light, I'm proud to say that
The WidowHow peacefully he sleepsThe Widow14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
upon soft, silken sheets
as I bend down to kiss
the warmth from his lips.
So softly he moans
and whispers his final breath
so regal and angelic he looks in death.
I gently caress his curled, auburn hair
praying for the angels to take him in their care.
So peacefully he sleeps
upon soft, silken sheets
and I savour the taste
of his last, warm breath
What God has in sacred marriage
may only be parted in death...

The flowers have stopped their singing, and the children can only cry,
So our dear Alice shall dive into the fanciful minds to prove once and for all,
Even forgotten memories can touch their wings to a forlorn sky.
Because the White Queen is Red and the Red Queen is White,
And the Cheshire Cat keeps on grinning throughout the night.
Poor little Alice is late, late, late for a very important date,
And soon all will be lost in the final checkmate.
The cards have all been shuffled; the die has been cast,
The castle walls have slowly been melting

The dreams come
but they are not dreams at all
and I am not asleep.
Your hand sliding up my thigh
and your groan slicks itself onto my neck,
embeds itself into my skin.
I wear the remnants
of your ecstasy in my flesh still.
It crawls when any other nears it.
It came to be that your bed-side clock
replaced my fearful heartbeat
as I laid in stasis and hoped -
for a passing; of time, of fingers, of life.
I cannot sleep with ticking in my ear anymore
I don't think of time running out, but of paralysis.
I think of lapses of concentration,
I think of those slow burning moments

i will never drown again darling, and you,

Ears deafened from the high-pitched scream
Agony streams liquid fire from the sky
A guided missile in a blood-stained eye
Death dances lightly with eerie grace
Tap-dancing over each upturned face
Fools impaled on blood-soaked rods
All in the name of their so-called Gods
And the devil laughs in endless glee
At the glorious stupidity of humanity

Him, above from the silence the lurking puffs of smokey haze lingers in the fire of my loins, as my mind
Drifts and floats as the indulgence makes my eyes burn, as they disappear with the curse of my tears,
Blind sighted I have become to fall in the cauldron of mixed portions of love, my being dares for such a
Dreaded cleansing, for he was my other half of creeping insanity, I have succumbed to the realms of my

Smexy FAQCan he get people pregnant?Smexy FAQ19 hours ago in Profiles More Like This
No, he cannot get the typical human pregnant, it’s like the whole fucking a horse and expecting a centaur thing, it just doesn’t work that way. In fact being a different species from humans, his frequent raping of us could almost be considered something like bestiality among his species.
Is he single?
Technically, he actually isn’t, in fact he’s married, multiple times.
Being the horny rapist that he is, he holds the concepts of relationships such as marriage in such low regard, that all the times he was proposed to, he accepted, seeing the whole thing as less of a binding contract of su

about my skill to paint a grim little scene,
to make the mind creak,
to talk of those things which we don't like to speak.
I was a girl of sixteen and I had a dream,
to exist so broken hearted that I would know,
know to the core,
that love was as real as I thought it should have been.
I was dramatic to say the least and wrote poems spanning ages,
wrote of crashed cars and seeing those eyes again later,
FEELING that stare,
knowing that though time had passed,
he'd not actually gone anywhere.

seemed so lame,
most days in the back with the boys,
getting out of work with the most clever ploys.
Then one day the teacher said,

The Red headed reaper laughed at your expression and rubbed his cheek against yours.
“Aww, come on (your name), you’ll look absolutely adorable darling~!” He smiled at you showing off his shark like teeth as he gently nudged you with his shoulder.
You shook your head in a negative response as you felt a blush creep onto your face, crossing your arms and giving a little huff.

What more can one wish for at the end of the counting of blessings?
Past the limit of their greatest efforts and exhausted breaths?
What love is should be tested, and if true, never broken.
Immortal to beyond a dying breath, where patience is our only friend with faith.
Holding hands and walking through Hell with your head high
and a love for your lover coursing through your veins.
Through thick and thin stays the course on which I tread,
while loving you with each and every step.
For better or worse, until death do we part only to later meet
and love one another again and forever. Persevere, my love, for I am with you always.
