butterflies
by Gionna Braddock
In my stomach is where you live. Each time i look at him and get butterflies i feel as though it is wrong. I look at him and think of you. More than anything i wish to remove you. The hollow hole for a belly i have contains only you.and sickening butterflies. Oh how i wish to clip their wings…

The tribe and other related observations.
by talltalker123
The night shines dark and gloomy upon the tribe gathered before their god-chief, they dance drunkken and numb before the orgy of the world Bask in light-whisperBask in light-speaking voice Bask in light-scream Now the orgy begins as the women lay thrice with every man and every man thrice with every woman. Scream,speak, and whisper. Ecstasy and pleasure, the…

On Your Toes, Held By Strings
by AshlynneDietrich
 A useless dollStrung up so obscenelyThat smile isn’t realNone of you isLifeless eyes stare back, unblinkingForced to move in ways that seem humanA false personality being presentedYou aren’t seeing the full pictureNot realA pawnBeing controlledYou don’t see the one behind the stringsAnd you haven’t noticedThe strings are on youEven when all this timeYour reflection was…

Unrequited Garden
by AshlynneDietrich
 For every day you stare at themA seed is planted in your chestFor every time you swoon and sighA leaf is grown in your lungsFor every stutter you make in their presenceA bud is formed around your heartFor every “I love you” thought but never saidA flower blooms within youBeautiful flowers of loveSuffocating youIt’s unrequited,…

Dead DOG
by luckyalade
You are dead...yes---you are deadYour grave was dug In the Eden of my heart Years after years You watch me fadeYears after years my sun set in your horizonYet you blamed the serpentI watch me die in your silenceYour words are light---a dim light under a bushel My tears flowed unto your crownYes you answered...you answered back with rain and lighteningYet 'Ask' you asked me…

When we were childrenWe had the most beautifulPlum treeThat could feed you all the way to heavenYou could climb up like an angelIn the arms of the azure skyAnd exhale in butterflieswe existed in watervolorAnd the branches danced in the summer breezeAnd blessed the grass with its fruitOn its loving arms hung a summer swingWith…

Today we Ride a Sailboat
by wordsinthewillows
Maybe we might catch a sailboat todayAnd try and find the origin of a tiptoed waveOr at least follow one,As it journeys Like a kind sisterBreaking on a childs footstepsLike a beautiful soft ballerinaWho wasn't bitter sharing the stageOn those days you see the sailsFull like iron lungsProud and full of lifeSo WantedLike a soldier…

Will they?This is a continuous nightmareI am as miserable, as I ever wasAn empty bottle adrift in a vast, raging oceanI am…
