[finals]
this is the last time,
we say, but we never mean
it. there is no end

to us. first time for
many things but we are not
things. we are lovers.

[pen pals]
only a letter
to bind us together, they
say, but words are strong.

[blind date]
I do not know your
face, but I know your heart and
that, I think, is better.

[marching band]
the world goes by in
cacophonous glory but
we are happy here.
clarahow: (leaningbny!marg)
do not save your smiles for
a rainy day. the
world deserves all of your
joy.

[ran out of time]
My blood runs cold as
my heart of Snow, but I leave
fire in my wake.

[restart my heart]
If it is not in
battle that I die, I have
not yet died at all.

[waking dreams]
Perhaps this life is
naught but a nightmare that will
never end in me.

[horrors of the night]
fucking hell, sweet sleep
why do you elude me so?
please fucking stop it.

[providence]
if I shall scream for
justice, dear Stranger, please let
it be my own voice.

[shades of grey]
there are many worlds
within this one where I live;
none of them are mine.

[ghostly visitors]
our castle is filled
with the ghosts of the
lives we had before.

[to be a man]
broken, beaten down,
and bent: who do I think I
am? I am a prince.

[literally]
he looks me in the
eyes, says I am nobody.
wrong: I am no one.

[just a kiss]
just a kiss, I tell
myself, and I survive as
I begin to bleed.

[speechless]
what has been done is
unspeakable - that is why
I must never speak.

[testing the limits]
what has been done to
me is unspeakable, but
I will survive it.

[heavy duty]
I can see myself,
alive and well and fighting,
howling with the wolves.

[renew your vows]
noble house, house of
fallen glory, I am yours.
I shall boast my name.

[raisin in the sun]
there is the sun and
there are dragons. both will burn
you no matter what.

[in the ballpark]
the girl they want has
not been me for a long time.
they may have her yet.

[broken down]
Stitched together of
broken pieces and tears, I
know myself too well.

[super glue]
they may break my heart
and rip my dress, but they will
not take me apart.

[layered cake]
lemon and sugar
bitter against bloodied lips
I used to love sweets.

[on hard times]
we crash into the
snowdrift and live a life worse
than what we have known.

[wild card]
no one knows who or
where I am. I am No One,
watching from afar.

[spilled milk]
my world is ending,
but I do not cry. there are
less important things.

[ruined forever]
He has taken me
and bedded me, yet my heart
can never be his.

[love at first sight]
I should have stayed with
he who loved me when
I did not know love.

[Snow White, Rose Red]
the blood of Snow stains
snow with its Stark hue. Today,
the North remembers.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] rebelwaste at Poetry Project: Lament for the Dead
I wanted to extend an invitation here for a poetry project that will be occurring this summer. It is called Lament for the Dead, and I'll copy paste the description with a website link here

LAMENT FOR THE DEAD IS AN ONLINE COMMUNITY POETRY PROJECT WHICH WILL MARK THE DEATH OF EVERY PERSON KILLED BY POLICE THIS SUMMER, AND EVERY POLICE OFFICER WHO LOSES LIFE IN THE LINE OF DUTY, WITH A POEM.

lamentforthedead.org

I really like how this project is dealing both with police brutality and those who are lost in the line of duty protecting their citizens.

If you would like to participate I have the email of someone you can get in contact with. Otherwise read the poems and support the poets work in Lamenting for the Dead.

I’m gonna be released from behind these lines
All I want is nothing more
there's a fire starting in my heart
I’m thinking it over
this is the end

When I was just a little girl
I threw a wish in the well
if you could only see
I’ve got ten fingers to the sky
have you got color in your cheeks?

Spotless skin, piercing eyes…both the color of the ground when the sky clears after rain.

[x.]
clarahow: (Default)
Long nails with cyan polish, her crooked-toothed smile...hiding that she could skin me alive.

clarahow: (Default)
She'd come dressed to kill.

Whether she knew it or not, she was closing in.

I.
she brings lipstick to
a sword fight; and oh my, she
wins by a long shot.

II.
starry heavens sway
with her favor; her
king kisses her feet.

III.
her voice fills the air
with color; she stirs up storms
to do her bidding.

IV.
her womb and wisdom
bear demises of kings; she
is alight; she schemes.

V.
he thinks he owns her;
she rules his iron throne with
flowers in her hair.
