He smiled faintly as her hand brushed his face one last time,
Her scent still lingered on his skin.
It had only been one night;
Yet for that night they had been one,
Brought together through passion and intensity,
So much more - yet never quite the same forever after.
As she walked away, she cast him one last firey look,
Her olive green eyes undressing him once more,
Burning themselves into the back of his mind,
Forever branding him as hers.
And he knew as she dissappeared over the hills,
That the woman he longed for more than any other,
Was the one he'd never see again.
Never fall in love with a gypsy.
Gypsy Perhaps she'll drop out of college, use all her bank account money and take a train to New York. Or maybe Seattle, for she likes all the cafes, the art, the vintage. Perhaps she'll return to California and live with friends and tell her parents that she's still at university.Gypsy1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Yeah, that could work. That's one way to disappear.
Maybe she'll meet a rich, married man that will take care of her as long as she's good with her tongue and her curves. He could take her to San Francisco where being strange is the norm, and she could find home in old houses smashed together for equity's sake.
She'll grow fond of small towns with simple heroes an

Provide the support
To my empty rib cage
Evening the structure;
Would be something great.
Taciturn tea leaves
In a ceramic urn
Allow some comfort
From their steam
While the lines
On my palm lie-
My bracelets of fortune
Can't be that short.

To a road less walked,
a road to nowhere,
a road to nothing in particular?

To the hunter,

What say you to any man,
who says they have no home,
who speaks of worlds they roam,
who cries for lost time?
What say you, Gypsy...

I am a nomad, just a wandering lad
I am the gypsy prince I will slay them all, not even wince
I can't stay in one place for fear that they will know my face
I walk around now in dark silks and fine lace, look all around I own this place
As I grasp my sword a fine shining blade I will fix all the mistakes that I have made
I cut them down where they stand. Sore and bloody now I must seek a new place
in time they will forget my face and I that place
I am the Gypsy prince all covered in blood.

you've got the know-how,

Let's be nomads, coin-catching Capricorns
singing for the common folk
just like in the books.
We'll dance for a dollar.
We'll rhyme for a dime.
We'll travel on the cobblestones
if we find the time.
Rattle our rattles,
vocal chords and tom-tom drums
keep feet light upon the ground
shout to heaven, show your gums

sharp like a knife, only a woman who knew
the pen is not always mightier than a sword.
She brought her family with her
in every fold of her sunset skirt, her careworn hands
eager for a new world, the Roaring Twenties, even
the name called her, barefoot with a warrior's soul.
She held her sister's hand on a vast ship, tight,
and never glanced back. She sailed the seas on
her high cheekbones, dark-lashed eyes
that looked into mine years after the world
heaved like Pangaea, after the names of her people
had changed, she looked into my unfamiliar
and saw herself.

My little brother is nine years old the first time I decide to kill him.
During the night, snow fell over the jagged wreckage of our land. In the morning I realize he will follow me outside if I call to him. Like an awkward-limbed colt he'll stumble through the snowdrifts, and I can leave him to the ice and wind in the shadow of a three-walled building. No one will see me. Our father will think he has gotten lost on his own. I too will cry when they find his body. When the mourning is done, however, I will be my father's true and only son. 'Cam,' he will call to me, and I'll kneel down before him.

My name prophesising
A renowned showmare
My challenge to all
Better them at their own
A veil to my insecurity
Ponyville, my downfall,
A minor setback
Confronting an Ursa true
Revealed my act a shimmering hue
Upstaged by a librarian
Saved by the Goddess
A disgraceful dethroning
Mirrored sparkle, fading
But an illusion...
A lack of appreciation

Theatre is but fiction
None but that mare could provide contradiction
News will travel
But Trixie will endure
After all, the world is a stage
And Trixie, its premier mage.

and the inverted, does that
make her the light?
She can, without a doubt, sparkle.
She has made me feel confident,
like no one else has,
but she also has set me in my place.
I am not good enough.
She is still unstoppable,
dancing in my thoughts;
the gypsy, whispering
of demons and voices,
prophecies in my head.
Fantasies that will never become reality.
Still, I wait for the day
when the crystal ball may tell
of a new fortune;
a new future in which the light
and the darkness collide.
I will continue to watch my gypsy
dance circles around the controlled flames
Gypsy and the Warrior I laughed as my brothers played their instruments for the crowd and danced along with the tune. It was my job after all. My sisters and I would dance with bells on to entertain the people who came to our little show. Others would visit the fortune teller while they were here. My cousin would eat flames and swallow swords.Gypsy and the Warrior1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

And you don't know what to do
Because novels are dull and dramas are daft,
And none of the stories sound true....
Our existence is a story told with schemes and different themes
And we live through them most every single hour,
You'd see if you just took a little look, it's like a book,
And as we grow up the plot begins to flower
Our lives unfold in stages, and are written down on pages
in a book that's hidden deep within our souls.
This dear town is just a setting and the people that you're getting
to know well are only characters and roles.

Looking to be discovered, like a diamond encased in coal
Known the touch of a man, but not the right one
So I keep going on, legs carrying me at a run
Hoping to unhitch the wagon, unharness the horses
Kick up my feet and stop fighting all the forces
Go for a trail ride along the country side
Watch the pull of the moon at tide
Put away these wild dreams that'll never come true
Like how the sun soaks up the morning dew
Get a better head on these shoulders of mine
Something more strong like the boulders past the pines
All these emotions I can't keep hiding from
So I'll sing

"Help! Help!" She cried, looking around in fear. A man opened the door, she pushed the bundle into his arms. "Please take care of my daughter and run!" She cried and ran, before he could say anything. He watched as she ran into the darkness. When he closed the door, he heard a gunshot fire off before silence. He hoped that she got away safely.
"Tino?" He turned, meeting the Swedish man that loomed over him. "Who was that?" He asked.
"I don't know Berwald. However, she gave me her little girl." Tino lifted the baby up to allow Berwald to see her face.
