    A crab scuttled around my feet as I watched her walk away, the sight of her footprints in the sand blurring with the tears in my eyes. I didn't know if I would ever see her again. How could she have left me? What had I done to make my mother hate me?

and when i gaze above, the stars spill their tears on the cold, dry earth

PROMPT: Star Wish

the stars cry to me
they whimper of the past
beautiful clusters
of blood and ash

the skies pour on me
they cannot soak the ground
tumbling breezes
carrying the dead

planets sing to me
they offer a new home
watchful beginnings
too far from my reach

"tell me, my friends, how to save you."

i cry to the stars
i watch as they fly fast
wonderful wishes
of fresh air to breathe

creation of the storm seeker

In the howling of the storm, some part of you breaks free,
singing on harmony with the crashing of waves

Khazishanah - Please Provide Feedback

    Shadows taste like rust, rough and grating down the throat. Their aftertaste is bittersweet, honeyed and stinging. A bit like whiskey, actually, Sal always thought. Maybe that's why he took to the alcohol, because it reminded him of darkness when there was none available. But here in Deglendark, shadows and demons seemed abundant. Darknesses of all kinds roamed the forest, and the caves, and the cobbled streets of Smiffiton. 

    But not for long, Sal thought, smiling as he strode through...

There Is Nothing Left Between Them And I Can See That

They buried their hearts in the backyard this summer
They buried their love underneath the cold earth
They buried the hope that they could be together 
They buried their feelings hoping to forget

I remember the held each others tiny hands
I remember they thought they’d be together forever
I remember the feelings they tried to forget

To my late cousin, Fiona. I miss you, angel.

In the silence, I can hear you. 
Darkness comes and you are there,
Your voice calls out to me.
But you left Earth eight months ago.

In the darkness, I can see you. 
I close my eyes and your eyes are there,
Searching mine for reassurance. 
But the bus crashed eight months ago. 

In the night's still calm, you are restless. 
I try to sleep but to no avail,

Tempest tides, how high you soar! 
You break the silence; I can’t ignore!
You tumultuous tides grasp the land!
You break the beach with your hand. 
Before my eyes, you slash the sand. 
Your rage echos across the land. 
You block the sun, you dastardly knave! 
I stand here; watching, you cave.

PROMPT: Music Is  | GROUP: True Stories

Music. Vibrations of air that we can hear. I absolutely adore music in its many forms, whether I am listening to Spotify or playing my guitar. From a very young age, I have been an avid lover of music, singing along to the radio when I was barely a year old, putting on little concerts for my family, picking up a tin whistle and playing a tune. It is not only my hobby  or potential career, it is an escape....

So you called my name?
The hairs on my neck stood on end
I panicked for a moment
And I looked around a little frantically
 
So you tried to reach?
And still I missed the message
I didn’t think it was you calling
So I dismissed it and carried on

So you called me friend?
And my heart skipped a beat
I felt so warm and happy
So familiar and yet still too far off to see
