Wish For Another DayThe first ingredientWish For Another Day by RollingTomorrow
Being together with you
The second component
Another day together
The third element
Every moment of memory
There's nothing more important
Everything else can stay distant
I only want a holiday with you
Nothing else will do
A perfect recipe
Containing you and me
Naught could make a holiday better
Than another day together
Days may be numbered
But memories cannot be altered
So as long as we are gathered
These simple wishes will be answered
Ophelia DreamsOphelia Dreams by AryaMay
Thus we came to rebehold the stars
And the other globes of the celestial skies,
Lady Luna with her blunted horns renewed-
The darkness haunting us left somewhere behind.
Or maybe not quite, so the Heavens do taunt-
While the Sisters Fate laugh as the devils cry;
And the mechanics of the world turn counter clockwise,
They pushed on by the mortals who plot God's demise
But you, my dear Ophelia, what do you see?
Do you envision your ghosts with those sightless eyes?
Or do you see anger, bitter desperation, hate?
The river as my arms that you refused to take?
My faithless lover, to the world a queen
A queen that it lost, like the others it had seen-
And your lips (now cold), how many lies did they speak?
Your hands (now damp), how many others did they seek?
None, and that's why you're a treacherous fool:
You denied yourself yours and now you're so cold
And dead, my Persephone, forever running away-
Like all women, our world's primary cause of pain;
The Melody of Christmas~The Melody of Christmas~The Melody of Christmas by ScarletDevil1503
Snowflakes drift like notes of a song...
Softly, gently, moving along.
Coming each with a wish of good cheer...
Hope for the dawning new-year.
The wind ebbs and the flurries die,
But too soon another stirs up the sky.
Beyond the frosty trees and homes,
A threesome of jolly carolers roam.
I silently gaze at the wonder around,
Knowing that no greater is found.
It comforts the cold and tickles the air,
Snow gentle snow everywhere.
Then, as these soft moments do fold;
This heartwarming melody sings in the cold.
And, for the fear of it passing away,
Merry Christmas to all; have joy on this day!
A Pensive FallI want to fallA Pensive Fall by Suphyx
New words for me
I mean them all
I've flown so high
And walked the sky.
Soak up the light
and float I might,
My heart it races,
Smiling as I face the stars
Wings carry me on to mars.
And yet I need to fall.
BarrierHow can I express,Barrier by Suphyx
through this barrier
all that goes on in my head?
with words coursing,
my chest bubbling,
with passion and feelings unsaid.
But this barrier,
This vast fucking barrier,
leaves me grasping
only the air.
There's only so much
I can put into words.
Without a voice,
only text that I hate.
I want only to hold you,
Bring you close,
and console you.
And live in that soft warm embrace.
That longing of closeness,
I work for it daily,
But the barrier looms ever still.
That barrier causes my pain.
Disjointed my thoughts,
feelings exploding in dust,
with out any way to release.
That barrier won't stop me,
No wall or mountain can stop me,
I'll hold you again some day soon.
My thoughts flowing clearer,
Serenity peaking, peace nearer,
My dream will finally come true.
Though it may take some time,
All I have is this rhyme,
To confess what I'm feeling to you.
You complete me, my angel.
My guiding light you're my angel.
That beacon of shimmering
Untitled Do not look to find me on the edges of cliffs.....I tend to ramble.Untitled by paolinaki
Neither the pavilions of despair.
But I tell you not to worry.I'm spending well...
I am hidden in a shell deep in the ocean...
There I learn the corals songs.
Wait for me...I will come to get you in!
Words to sayI know that words count lessWords to say by FuwaFuwa--chan
Than actions do, but even so
The words I write here
And think about now,
They come from my heart
And I mean every sentence they build.
You see, in our past,
We shared lots of things together.
Sad times, happy times, they all together
Build memories and feelings within my heart.
Even though we live far away from each other,
There’s not a minute where I wish
To be with you right in this moment
And show that the world isn’t as bad as it seems.
I know, those are just words that I say,
But even words have a deep meaning,
So will you listen to what I have to say?
Even if life can take away
Everything that is dear to us,
We have to continue fighting,
So that in the end, we will find our happiness.
My Love of BeautyI like beauty bold and cheap -My Love of Beauty by Rhiannon44
tinsel trees with greedy blue stars
and the kind of candles
that smell like fruit,
rings and ribbons so gold
they stain the furniture
when I shift
and black tafetta dresses
that stand up in the corner
and welcome in the crowd.
I like oil paint
smeared across the canvas
and red velvet sofas
that swallow up the simple,
on my porcelain cups
and my men
so thick and gaudy
they wear out my kisses
with stains upon my lips.
Your FaultCrawling through the floorYour Fault by owen-sixes
Trusting you to keep me safe
I feel a pain in my head
Something red and warm runs down
Blurring my vision
A cry echoes from my lips
As this metal barb hangs from my skin
You drop your graphite pole
And rush over to check on me
But I don’t trust you now
You didn’t keep me safe
This blood shouldn’t be flowing
This is your fault
I already hate you
PranksterPranksterPrankster by Dandin-of-Redwall
Among my memories old and new,
The first of all, I gained with you,
Remember that day when I was two,
My innocent face I bid adieu?
Sitting content within my chair,
Pleased I was to watch and stare,
And just await my pretzels fair,
From the bowl you gave with care.
While munching on my salty snack,
I heard dear Mother's voice then smack,
Warning you to take it back,
Her green bowl that I might crack.
I listened when you said it's fine,
To take it back, you'd make me whine,
You said to leave me alone to dine,
That I'd break nothing I thought was mine.
Now I then I had to disagree,
Though little, I was smart you see,
So in my own baby glee,
I thought to make your senses be.
And though I couldn't really speak,
I made a grin from cheek to cheek,
I dumped my munchies with a squeak,
Then smashed the bowl with happy shriek.
I still remember how you gawked,
Your poor demeanor completely shocked,
And Mother tutted as she talked,
How you had been surely mocked.
From that day I plot and
HyperthymesticIt's like looking through a crystal ball,Hyperthymestic by AMWeitz
I can't get
knees to elbows
like a prehistoric carving
on flat pink jewel,
an old philosopher born anew,
thinking of nothing and
signifying everything —
senseless and parasitic
and beautiful was I,
all in midair.
I could never forget,
and it's not that I don't like baths;
I just always end up face down
trying to breathe in the warmth
I once knew
