Company Front

PROMPT: Unconventional

The marching band spans 
the entire field,

end zone to 
end zone,

coming forward
altogether

in step,
playing perfect music.

They came to
dominate,

and this
is where

it counts.

It's stunning to watch
the power

of a 
company front.

PROMPT: Unconventional

what hope have i
when sleep is
the only thing 
i live for

what hope have i

when i ponder
the future

i have no hope
im empty
but charming penpals
tell me

to have no hope
is sexy

Dmoral (United States) published:

People are like Words

PROMPT: Unconventional

people Are like WORDs
WE choose who leads
and MAKE them better
like capital letters

and the others who
we claim ARE insignificant
don't get A LETTER
in the abbreviation

WE also CHOOSE when a sentence
of a persons' LIFE gets to end
that is punctuation
my friend

lastly WE leave little
obstacles like a comma
with WORSE oNes like dashes
in our world for others

Tamed

PROMPT: Unconventional

To think something thought they
of all people 
could tame me--
Taste the storm on my lips
the lightning on my tongue,
feel how the rain slicks my skin
--is this 
a person who could be tamed?

Falling For Nothing

PROMPT: Unconventional

why do i
even try


to fall in love with you?

you are like a shadow...

                                                You will eventually vanish...


and chasing something no longer there, is sheer stupidity.

Love?

PROMPT: Unconventional

he presented her with a bouquet of roses and swore 
never to let go of her hand for he
loved her with all his heart and only hoped for
her smile to never fade
 
his sweet smile was intoxicating and his
actions made her heart skip a beat for they
are truly made to be with each other and
lies would never be told

That Side of Me

PROMPT: Unconventional

you know that i am happy
happy as can be
you know that i smile
every single day
you know the side of me that flies
the side of me that still has wings

but you've never met the side of me
that cries herself to sleep
the side of me
that cares what people think
the side of me that isn't perfectly happy

where's that side of me
that doesn't hide anything
that side of me that

desire

PROMPT: Unconventional

i want
everything 

i want to grow flowers from my hands and to make the garden of my body grow 
i want 
to bloom tulips from my scars and make sunflowers from my crooked teeth and grow vines from my stretch marks 

i want 
to scream 
and let all the emotion 
out
and watch it skip through the air
and i want
to blow it all to oblivion 

i want 
to burn
and burn everyone
because the anger inside demands...

shining through the green
light cascading down

crisp and cold air accompanying the sight

making me shiver
despite the warm light on my skin
cold seeps through

falling

PROMPT: Unconventional

darkness encases me
falling
endlessly

reaching out
into nothing

attempts to end my descent
fruitless

ringing fills my ears
my eyes open to the world

i feel no relief

there is still good

PROMPT: Unconventional

in a world with color
i sit in darkness

i think of the world
the world that surrounds

of how disconnected
disconnected and disinterested

we are in each other
in ourselves

about how we only ever put out the positive feelings
because anythings else and your labeled as an attention seeker

but it's the bad that we need to get out 
not so much the good

keeping the bad to ourselves 
it only weighs us down

so pick yourself up ...
