No one was left; nothing but
Blood stained floors and grisly walls

31 Nights of Halloween: Night 11

Something tricky
Wicked cruel was waiting
Out in the desert
Hooves and horns, red eyes flicky
Searching for prey, big trap baiting

Deals to make and sins to abuse
He had one vision in store
Souls to take and count
King of the Crossroad Blues
An evil lore

31 Nights of Halloween: Night 10

There was something in the darkness, that called her name. It was summoning Geneva, begging her to join the forces of mischief and chaos, pleading for to endorse her free will and choose to do the wrong things. That was the important piece, the monsters wanted her to choose corruption. They wanted her to consciously select the path of damnation; they needed her to want and desire, with her entire being, the life of a villain.

And for a tiny moment
A small fraction of Geneva
Wanted to be evil

31 Nights of Halloween: Night 3

Vex Me Love
Ice cold, holy kiss
Seya’s lips pure bliss
Vie was vexed by the love witch
Deep brown skin, jewel tone
Queen atop her throne
Her voice made Vie squirm and twitch

Vie would have died a
Thousand times for a
Kiss from Seya’s sweet full lips
She would have slain all
Monsters just to crawl
Between her enchanting hips

Through Enough Already

Take all the chances
Harbor my hurting heart
Roll through the credits
Over the top with my loving
Under the stars with my sex
Grainy and static voices
Heal me, cause I’ve been through the gutter

Even after I’m all used up
Nothing stops you from chasing after me
Outside the world is dangerous
Under your sheets I feel safe
Galaxies revolve around our bed
Heavens shed tears for you and me

All you got to do is show me that you’re always there
Love me slowly; love me wild
Restore and renew
Every night something different
Am I fool for meeting you so late in my life?
Do you see ions of love and descendants in my eyes?
Yes, I see our future in your smile.

Me, on Beat (A Blitz Poem)

Hideaway with me
Hideaway from me
Me and you
Me alone
Alone in pain
Alone with regret
Regret the past
Regret the memories
Memories of tears
Memories of heartbreak
Heartbreak song
Heartbreak hotel
Hotel of broken dreams
Hotel of shattered love
Love lost
Love strain
Strain to hear me
Strain to feel
Feel the weight
Feel something real
Real love
Real life
Life alone
Life together
Together forever
Together for now
Now is the time
Now, here’s your chance
Chance to relate
Chance to reveal
Reveal what you feel
Reveal what I mean
Mean to you
Mean and rude
Rude love
Rude noise
Noise of my heart
Noise, blank
Blank page
Blank and empty
Empty, like my soul
Empty, never whole
Whole damn year
Whole damn heart
Heart and soul
Heart beats
Beat away the pain
Beat down the feelings
Feelings
Pain

Lines 3 and 4 should be short phrases or images using the last word of Line 2 as their first words (so Line 3 might be β€œhouse for sale” and Line 4 might be β€œhouse for rent”). Lines 5 and 6 should use the last word of Line 4 as their first words, and so on until you’ve made 48 lines. Line 49 should be the last word of Line 48. Line 50 should be the last word of Line 47. The title of the poem should be three words long and follow this format: (first word of Line 3) (preposition or conjunction) (first word of line 47). No punctuation.

Hardly Holding On: Photography & Poetry

Please don’t make me beg for your love
One touch and I’m yours forever
You got me where you want
I can’t control myself
I’m begging you please don’t hurt me again

I’m hardly holding on

Photography & Poetry

Memories of the times we shared
Rush over me like sea foam
Hand in hand,
You and me against the world

A time when we had no care
All around the world we roamed
Hand in hand
You and me against the world

When things were simple and seemed fair
You always kept me close
Hand in hand
You and me against the world
