I'm just a silver-tongued lover of imperfection.

Yes, there is darkness in this world. Fight it.

Mr. Day

PROMPT: Becoming Human

When first I met the Day, I was a child,
A'dancing on the cliffs beside the sea.
He twirled me round and sung my name and smiled, 
But soon enough ran out of time for me.

I fought the night; I fought to stay alive.
The light in me was dangerously dim.
I found in me a desperate need to dive,
But not a fragment of desire to swim.

One shard of shadow in a world so wide,
I blew...

Goodbye

FREE WRITING

These last five years,
In this town that at first
Burned my eyes with its dazzling skies
And froze my heart until it cracked,
I have lost and found myself like an old toy.
I have harmed and mended a handful of hearts,
My own included. 
I have passed through friendships
Like neon, like moonlight,
And the momentary glare of a solar eclipse. 
I have bent under the pressure of a thousand winter nights
And risen with the force of...

YOU THERE

PROMPT: Open Prompt

You there,
You have some nerve showing up here.
These are my dreams, not yours.
You have some nerve, speaking to me tonight,
When I haven't seen you since there was life in me.
Get out of my dreams, ghost.
Get out of my poetry.
Let me go. 
Oh, no.
Oh, no. 
Oh no, I saw your face. 
I don't love you. 
I don't.
But why does it hurt so much,
When I get so much as a glimpse of you, ...

Bury You

PROMPT: What Came Before

Without a coffin to call home, it takes the human body about ten years to be reduced to a skeleton. 
It only took her two.
How could I let you get her?
I fought with everything I had.  
How did you get past me?
You were the darkness, she was the light, and I was the line in between. 
She was everything I loved about the world in five feet and four inches of strong bones and limitless love. ...

Chapter 5
The Assassin
 
From an early age, Leo knew that attempts might be made on his life. There hadn't been an assassination in generations, but there were always radicals out there. Always men who blamed the royalty for their troubles.  Still, he had to know what to do if someone came for him.
He learned how to wield a sword when he was young. Learned how to throw blades and use his fists if he had to....
