Silent night

I heard today the world was ending! It was some Elfin preacher talking in tongues or gibberish.

Sometimes the man on the corner with his “The World is ending” sign and the one behind the pulpit sound the same.

The preacher said “swimming against the tide, will find you drowning in the deep end and alone”. “Come to church on Sunday and like a life guard, we’ll pull you out of hell!”

So, I set my life in order. I called all my friends, informed them about the world ending, before getting in my Car and driving the long journey north to the Church of Christmas.

I left an Envelope with my last will for my mother to take care of my pets.

My mom’s a giver!

She doesn’t believ...

Circumscribed

I tried to go on an adventure, but I was confined to my delusions of grandeur, as I sat on a porcelain pot, releasing last nights botulism.

Popular it may be to eat Tide pods,
Rumor has it they eat you inside
Out, now you’re puking bubbles,
Mom told you so, don’t play with
Pods or you will be in the ER, and
TV famous!

Suckubus:

Mirror, mirror on the wall, how far will I fall, and can I take you with me?
How many generations of my kin, will have bad luck, because I was a klutz?

Is that a demon I see reflecting me, a Soulless succubus, ravishing the sweat off of men while they sleep. Depleting them, draining them dry, in a flyby sextravaganza of the outer limits kind.

A Flame, deep in my love tunnel, has been burning hot, making men melt with the slightest touch. Without the proper fire proximity suit, you’ll perish with a tinge of regret.
My canal, is now closed to adventure seekers, a Reve...

Flawless:

It was a battle, a war for her beauty, a battle between demons and angels for her soul. It was jealousy conjured up by society to make her insecure, but at the same time they made her a heroine to young girls.

She was worshipped as a god, untouchable, unreachable, unrealistic to say the least and she began to believe she was a GOD!

She made mankind cherish her, they whispered her name in public and wanted to ravish her in private, rip off her clothes and devour her goodies.
Yet they couldn’t walk in her shadow or have the backbone to walk along side her.

They were... inept

Asphyxiation

I woke this morning being asphyxiated by her soft tender lips. My lungs felt like they were bleeding fire and searing my tastebuds with after death mints.

Believe it or not, I wanted to kiss her more on the lips, like a child wanting to nestle amongst his mother’s plump breasts for nourishment and warmth.

She was my everything and I was her rube. I’d stand in the cold, the rain, even if a tsunami came knocking, I’d breathe her in deep, leaving love trails on my tender lungs, causing me to exasperate my unhealthy condition.  

Even though death was evident, I couldn’t stop sucking, no matter my willpower or lack there of. It was futile to think otherwise and a bit shameful h...

Crevice

Subsistence:

My journey has been a Hard one, no one can argue with me on that. I started as a seed planted deep, then covered over by man made street, but I am not New to Life, for I live it.

The cobblestone street they thought would dwindle my spirit. I think not, because I can feel the heat of the sun above me, enticing me to carry on, despite the chemicals they shower upon me, when they see a tad bit of green peeking through the cracks.

I am able to trudge on, with just a wee bit of sustenance i.e. water & sun.
Luckily for me, I live in a city polluted fog deep. I’m not sure how the humans can breathe without me.

Molested

I once traveled by rail, but it’s long gone.
It’s been molested by nature and left for dead.
Smothered in seasons, like condiments, she coats every crevice with her love.

When beauty steals your breath
She kills you in the most beautiful way.
But still, you beg her to take every ounce that’s left by way of a kiss.

I was wondering if any admin or lettrs staff could help. A friend (Vyxyn) is having trouble getting into her lettrs account. She says it doesn’t recognize her password and when she’s requested a password change, she receives no email to change her password. Is there an email account she could contact for assistance?

Thank you

Fighter

It takes every synapsis in my brain not to call or text you.
Every molecule wants to add pen to paper or thumb to phone to reach out to you.

My earnest heart wants to write you a beautiful work of art, but my soul fights to let you go, fights to set you free, fights to remember who we once were in this world of misery.

Fights to bring back life to what has died from lack of oxygen, lack of spark, lack of... LOVE!

Wannabe pirate

I took a trip on an old rocking ship on a sea among many ships
A floating boat that rocks to and fro on waves that grow
I felt the need to bend at my hips and do some dips
In agony I winced, I needed to go as I looked for a place to blow
my stomach felt tremendous pain, I cringed, as I heard rips  
I blew out my back door goo & poo, I felt a messy lava flow
I'll never forget last nights Carolina reaper avocado dip & chips
This will forever be a memory of my worse vacation trips.

Comfort

The journey I travel is tough and without you as the guide I'd be lost. You are all the good in a world of unknowns. In a desert you are the waterfall, the shade, the moon that brings solace to an otherwise unknown journey to my bewildered mind.
For in a desert I am the sun, the prickles on a cactus, a mirage of empty promises and the missteps on my own journey. I am lost, traipsing a crossed a world of unknown origins and you are the path I will follow to my final destination.
To my mind you are butterflies, warm bread and hot apple pie. You are comfort.

Misquote me not

For every dozen, there's a rose garden.
For every poem, there's a soul.
For every heart shaped box, there's a bite of chocolate waiting to tease your tender lips.
For every ounce of love, there's two waiting on a connection somewhere between purgatory of friend zone and true love.
For every two hearts, there's a war raging on between Cupid, and lost love!
For every battle fought with Cupid's arrow against the cold steel of your heart, there's misplaced, mistook, mislabeled signals floating in open space waiting for a good connection.

For some, the battle changed their status and for others it hardened their heart just a wee bit too much and now nothing will grow there.

The battle can be rough, it does the most harm to your soul, when the struggle is within.   
Resist, till death comes for you in your sleep, then resist death, till she no longer breathes.
