Loser (United States) published:

Adventure Calls

PROMPT: Word Collage

I know not all that may be coming
The adventures first
Seek hazardous adventures
Unending, endless quest
The hope of the hopeless resides in a quest

Some, however have
No use for adventures
But
Even the mediocre have adventures
If we perish in the seeking, why, how small a thing is death!
To die will be an awfully big adventure

This is the way adventures begin

while rhyme or reason are away, the heart comes out to play

PROMPT: Word Collage

On what wings dare he aspire?
For everyone deserves the chance to fly
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door
Helpless to resist the notes I write
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
How much delight before we collapse?
Before I lead with the worst of me
Close my eyes and leap
You alone can make my song take flight
For a heart, once stolen, can never be returned

Never Again

PROMPT: Word Collage

We've all got both Light
and Dark inside of us.
What matters is the part we choose to 
act on,
That's who we really are.
It is the Unknown we fear
when we look upon
Death and Darkness,
nothing more

They've promised that
dreams come true -
but forgot to mention that 
nightmares are dreams too.
Let us step into the night
with everything
you were ever afraid of

This recurring nightmare in its
arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity. ...

Water fountain

PROMPT: Word Collage

If he ever goes back to the water fountain, 
It may be possible for him to remember,
For never was a story of more woe than this,
The time when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory
Where she said, "Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." while staring at the water 
and at the time he didn't have a clue to say
But now he felt as if he understood and could feel...

An endless beat that won't let go

grieve for no one but yourself

PROMPT: Word Collage

i couldn't utter my love when it counted
but i suddenly realised we were on borrowed time, that time was always borrowed
and beauty is terror - whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.
i love you more than the world can contain in
the smell of rosemary on hot days, the frantic rattle of cicadas in the afternoon -
a warm, hazy-gold, and resurrecting kind of beautiful. 
i think of your hands all those years ago

Love is...

PROMPT: Word Collage

Did my heart love till now?
Love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship
I was swallowed up in an abyss of love in an instant
There I was, way off my ambitions, getting deeper in love every minute
If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more
But never doubt I love.
You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you
Love is a great beautifier
If your love...

Bittersweet

PROMPT: Word Collage

A happy morning, a merry heart, 
A pretty a day.
In that sweet mood, pleasant thoughts 
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.
A strangely aching heart.
So many things I wanted to tell you 
When you returned, 
But you didn’t. 
The world’s heart breaks beneath its wars.
But in the dark,
Found loveliness,
Found light.
There’s meaning in the middle of this emptiness, 
There’s a dawn waiting at the edge of every midnight.
Through the closed blinds the golden sun ...

Set course for the Virgin Sea.

PROMPT: Word Collage

Often I think of the beautiful town
That is seated by the sea;
I must go down to the seas again
And the magic of the sea.
Come sail away with me.

I remember the black wharves and the slips,
And the sea-tides tossing free;
I must go down to the seas again
And the magic of the sea.
Come sail away with me.

I'm sailing away
To a speeding wind and a bounding wave,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s...

Every Savage Can Dance

PROMPT: Word Collage

I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend.
I'm not a bit changed--not really. 
There's no great loss without some small gain.
I defy you, stars.
Every savage can dance.

That's Showbiz, Baby

PROMPT: Word Collage

Never let me go, 
The day after tomorrow
Is grey.
I see the signs
Of the event horizon;
A shutter island
Held at grosse pointe blank.

The verdict is out, 
The serenity 
Is clueless.
The green mile
Is 28 days later.

The lawless contagion
Is our sin city
Tomorrow, when the war began. 
The eternal sunshine of the spotless mind;
Sunshine
On the day the earth stood still.

The impossible.

Love From Taylor Swift

PROMPT: Word Collage

Loving him was like driveing a new Maserati down a dead-end street
If you could see that im the one who understands you
And I promise that you'll never find another like me!
Your so gorgeous, I can't say anything to your face
Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone, I love you and that's all I really know.
I would dance in a storm in my best dress, fearless!
He's the reason for teardrops on my guitar ...

Word Collage: Androgynie

PROMPT: Word Collage

To stake dominion over all that one surveys
The mighty war-spirit endured for a season
The wild waters in this roar.

Do you think that God stays in Heaven because he lives in fear of what he has created?
Floating through the darkest reaches of space,
He is only a man with flesh and bones and bleeds just like you do.

Like the brutal autumn sun
Pressed against the walls of your world,
Doubt comes in and leaves a trace...

Living it all

The finest pleasures are always the unexpected ones
Live in sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air
Life's too short to worry about the things we got wrong
Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it... yet.

Album Pamphlets and Dr. Suess

PROMPT: Word Collage

It keeps me awake at night
The realization that I might be a drag
No one wants to inhale
Mama said, "don't give up
It's a little complicated 
All tied up
No more love and I'd hate to see you waiting
A person's a person no matter how small."
The kids all wrong, the story's all off.
No, I don't care what momma says
You'll wind me up
Or you'll wind up dead
When I grow up I want to...

Pull the trigger
Gun goes off
Room fills with smoke
Not My Fault
Bullet hits 
Heart stops
We fall back in unison
Not My Fault
Laboured breathing
Visions blurs
Screams
Not My Fault
Locked up
Only a window
Hours, days, weeks

Whispered words

Lots of yelling

Beautiful, Beautiful

PROMPT: Word Collage

Composed by my favorite books in the history of the world...

She turns; her white curls glow in the moonlight
I let my eyes drift shut.
Her hair has been combed into a ponytail.
Despite my nervous stomach, a thrill rolled through my body.
She bent down and whispered in my ear.
No one ever says goodbye, unless they want to see you again.

yet
man is born free and everywhere he is in chains
it its like

man is wolf to man
and a women needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle
in a world where
i will trust the government with their guns when they trust us with ours
and
taxation is a form of theft

each time a daughter cell divides

PROMPT: Word Collage

each time a daughter cell divides, the free surface
finds that punishing others provides temporary relief

the gyre widens, from behind the red in my eyes
to be effective as a barrier

I have permitted myself to say choirs
praying "don't let my baby die"

alack the day, he's gone, he's killed, he's dead.

i thought that love was a kind of emptiness

PROMPT: Word Collage


Lying in bed, I would think of Heaven
I would miss my old friends and also wartime
When people lived on little more than one thousand calories a day

They said to me, nobody's got control
That's
when I started to starve myself 

Sometimes it was still pleasant and fond and warm and breakfast and lunch
Sometimes it was hollow days 

Lying in bed, I would think of Russian nesting dolls,
of Legion, for we are many
Look at how filled...

Nosedive, Limitless (EXO 2 NCT)

PROMPT: Word Collage

When things are hard, you can just cry in pain

    You'll always have me, even if the world turns cold

        For to have faith is to have wings. 

            Mortals tend to see only what they understand

                But you, your existence is limitless.
