Happy Father's DayI'll never tell you he was a monster
He was just a man
Who could fault him for that
He was never made to love
And he was never made to live long
Existing as an oppositional force
Pouring white salt on the wounds
And kicking dust in the eyes
Roaming late at night
And twisting in and out of memories
An apparition of a godlike figure
The man behind the curtain
Pulling levers to navigate childhood nightmares
Getting sucked under trains and leaving everything behind
Mothers, daughters, friends
Your absence is relief and pain in one breath
Happy Father's Day
LETTING GOThere's a lot of pain being wrapped up in you
It stings deep and boils inside my chest
I remember you in those moments before sleep
Dreaming there would be better days
And that those days would be full of you
Yours eyes said you dreamed the same
even if your smoky words wouldn't admit it
That closeness we shared, nose to nose
Isn't an everyday sort of thing
I won't say I'm obsessed, distressed
But I will say that I kinda loved you
And so I'll let you go
I WANT TO HELP MY BABYPurple and pink bows hanging on my lymph nodes
I try to blow my nose
And all that comes out are freshly ironed clothes
Hazy daisies singing out the maybe's
Listening to the couch sing hymns about Tracy
Yes I got a fast car
So get us out of here
You said you had a plan, but first you gotta
Deal with your old man.
You're drinking for two
And you've got nothing to lose
Nothing to prove
Shapes of my face show how long I'll live-ia
According to an old lady from Bolivia
Turn me around and take me down town
I'll teach you some more trivia
Just get me some more tea
THE SEAWe can twist in the sea
Salt and foam mixing in our fears
The sun licking off our tears
Just you and me
Sailing for hours forever
Building an empire of awkward glances
Some quiet romances
Or I could find you on the pier
Counting down the years
When you and I first met
In your arms
Warming my bones
This is my home
Memories as precious as a pearl
Your heartbeat the waves crashing
Give me a distance smile
Hand in mine and so many things to say
My brain giving way
I forget, fragments of moments I wanted gone
I'll weave them into a song
And if you put your ear to the shell
You can hear it
The SquidThere was once this giant squid that lived in an old lady's aquarium for four years. He was dead inside because he had dreamed of becoming an actor at the age of 3. He was four then and felt like since he missed his chance, he'd never act again. He'd swim around and cry all day and night and eat snails straight from the garden because he had really long tentacles.
LISTEN TO THIS, after he ate a bunch of the snails, the old lady had had enough of the carnage since she was a vegetarian and only ate grass. She threw the squid out and told him to get a job by Monday or she wouldn't take him back. Well, what was he supposed to do? So he did the only thing a squid can do in a tight pickle. He ate her alive. That is just nature. He ate her whole, too, with no breaks. He had had enough also. The only thing he didn't eat were her shining pearls her grand-nephew had gotten her for her two-hundred and thirty-fourth birthday.
The squid was a monster but he wasn't a monster. Eating some
TREASUREI am golden starlight trapped under the skin
Hovering around the corners of your eyes
Seen the sun shimmering by and by
Twisting around your spine
I love the sound
Tinkling shining flying
Whispers and laughter
Dusting the outsides
And sinking into
Deeper and darker
With visions of treasures
Hidden and curling like smoke
ZIONHeading toward Zion I saw a man
Scraggly and old
An apparition of strength
A ghost of his youth
He called me over to the side of the road
His breath smelled like honey and mold
Toothless grin, he said he had a cure
For dust covered lungs and fissured skulls
For hopeless dreams and hearts caked in doubt
I didn't believe the airy way he talked
Every word a whisper, and every syllable dark
But I listened because I was headed toward Zion
Toward home and toward promise
He gave me three wishes trapped in three goats
I had to lead them to pasture he said
So that they would grow
I took the task gladly, seeing as I was a shepherd
For his own flock
He was tired then and died then
I covered him in silk and put stones on his eyes
So that in case he did rise
He wouldn't see he wasn't there
I led the goats behind me
On back toward Zion
They could pasture there
And give me my three wishes
When they were ready of course
These things take time
ODE TO BREADMy dearest bread
Thou art my life
Without thee a tear I shed
And I surely live in strife
Thou art the wind beneath mine wings
Thou art the reason the caged bird sings
Soft edges and brown crust
For thee is truly whom I lust
And wouldst the holy firmament crack
If it was thee I did lack?
It is thee that keeps me whole
It is thee that I lay in my boot!
Bread! Thou art sweetest in a roll!
My love for thee, finest bread
Will stay with me until I am dead
Detective Le Cactus: IIDetective Le Cactus: II
There was an eerie feeling to the abandoned factory as Le Cactus pulled up in the cruiser, followed by the Grape squad in their wagon that was being pulled by Spinach.
Le Cactus looked over his sunglasses at the place, taking in the tulip-py aroma. "Let's do this " he whispered to no one in particular unless there was a ghost in the car and then it was to the ghost but since ghosts are usually invisible I'll say to no one in particular.
With the cruiser parked, Le Cactus slowly made his way toward the factory, followed by the Grape squad with weapons drawn as well. Spinach stayed by the cruiser in case back up was needed he could call for help on his plant cellphone.
Scanning the area, there was nothing seen but instead heard. Le Cactus heard a cruel laugh erupt from inside. Motioning for the Grape squad to hold position, Le Cactus crept closer, pressing himself against the wall by the opening.
"That dumb broad! Haha! The look on her face was pr

Dreams And Nightmares
(Shadow)Italy x Reader
What if everything you dreamed became reality? But wouldn't it ultimately become a nightmare at some point?........
I snap out of my thoughts and gaze at the ballroom I was in. Many people were around me dancing gracefully in long dresses, with mask hiding their face away. I looked down at myself to see I was in a long (f/c) princess gown that had flowers, and butterflies on it, reminding me of a meadow. I looked up then touch my face, to feel satin touch caress a hard yet smooth surface. This was a masquerade party, yet why couldn't I remember getting here.
More people started to dance while a orchestra-in which I couldn't see-as they started to play a light, soft song that reminded me of a "forest". The more they played, the more I had to move away from the crowd. When I was starring at the crowd whom wasn't dancing, laid a familiar man. He must have felt my gaze because he suddenl
Quiet night in (Sam.WXReader)The motel room was quiet and you were enjoying the silence until a moose came and ruined it. He plopped down beside you on the couch and turned on the TV to a Sci-Fi movie.
"Turn the TV off Moose" You glared at the freakishly tall hunter.
"Nope. Dean free night I want to use it to relax and watch TV" Sam shook his head before tucking some of his hair behind his ear.
"I want to read in silence!" You whined.
"To bad" Sam chuckled. After 10 minutes you became more and more bored so you started braiding Sam's hair.
"What are you doing?" He asked.
"Trying to tame this mane Simba" You replied.
"Bitch please I'm Mufasa" Sam scoffed.
"Fine Simba" Sam pouted.
"So where is our dear Squirrel?" You asked raking your fingers through his hair.
"Strip club where else? And stop using Crowley's nicknames for us" He replied shaking his head.
"Their catchy" You shrugged moving so your head was on his lap.
"What am I a pillow?" Sam huffed.
Dreams And Nightmares Ch 2 (Shadow!Italy X Reader)
Dreams And Nightmares Chp. 2
(ShadowItaly X Reader)
I opened my eyes to see I was in a meadow. I rolled my head on what seemed to be bark from a tree. Flowers were scattered all across the field and small hills. Fairies dance away in this distance, as glitter filled my shocked (e/c) eyes. I try to pick myself up, still mesmerized by the things I was seeing, and lean on the tree. I look over from the tree to see a crystal blue lake.
"What is this place..." I mumbled to myself,"Why do I feel this isn't really real," I mumbled. Close my eyes and think for a moment. I couldn't remember how I got here, almost like the same with the dream I had. Wait! I had a dream like this, didn't I? Why do I feel like I'm missing things about it than? I growled in frustration, but stopped when I felt a presence behind me.
"(Y/n), I'm glad your awake," said a wicked voice behind me. I slowly turn around revealing a man, who seemed to be half human, and half shadow. My eyes widen in fea
Set Up (David AndersXReader)
It was a bright sunny day and you were at the beach with your best friend Leah (If your name is Leah pick another name) chilling on a towel under a large umbrella (dunno if they have an official name). Looking around you saw your friend scoping out guys still trying to find you a boyfriend.
"Leah can you stop trying to hook me up with a guy?" You asked.
"No! Its been over a year since (ex's name) broke up with you and you need to get back out there" Leah shook her head. You rolled your eyes at her and adjusted your sunglasses before you heard her gasp. Looking over you saw her grinning and instantly knew she was planning something.
"Lets go swim" She said dragging you to stand up.
"Leaaaaaaah" You whined letting her drag you towards the ocean. Leah just smirked and before you reached the ocean she pushed you into a guy who had been pushed towards you by his friend ending up with both of you on the sand with you on top.
"Oh god I'm so sorry" The man apologized.
"No I'm sorry must'
Spread the love (Heroes castXReader)
It was a normal day on the set of NBC's Heroes and you were currently chatting with Greg and Sendhil between shoots.
"Did you see Masi with that bucket earlier?" Greg asked sipping his coffee.
"Yeah he said he was on a mission. I think he's been Hiro for to long" You nodded.
"Next he'll be trying to time travel" Sendhil chuckled.
"Mhmm" You hummed not noticing Masi sneak up behind you. As if on que he tipped the bucket over your head drenching you in freezing cold water.
"Ohh" Greg stifled a laugh stepping away from you.
"Masi!!" You exclaimed turning to face him. He pushed his glasses up and dropped the bucket with a cheeky grin before bolting in a random direction. You took off after him aiming to hug him to get him wet but had a better idea. Running back you hugged Greg from behind making him shriek.
"Get off!" He said trying to pry you off him.
"I'm spreading the love!" You replied letting go of him before turning to Sendhil.
"No don't you dare stay away!" Sendhil

Bloopers (Heroes CastXReader)
You sat on stage with your fellow Heroes cast mates at San Diego comic con for a Q&A on season 4 of the show. To your left was Robert Knepper who played Samuel and to your right was Ray Park who played Edgar.
"Next question" Chris Hardwick the panel host said.
"Um hi! My question is for (Y/n). From other movies and shows you've been in on the bloopers and stuff you always seem to get your lines wrong or do something to mess it up, my question is what's the funniest mistake or your most embarrassing moment you've made in the season?" The woman asked.
"Im not sure what I'd classify as funny to be honest umm let me think" You said pausing to think for a moment.
"Oh I got one" Adrian started making you look down at him.
We were shooting the scene in the storage unit and it was me, (Y/n) and Milo on the set. It must have been 1 in the morning and we were finishing up the scene.
"(Character name) just come on or keep watch" 'Peter' groaned annoyed.
"I'll keep watch storage un
Ice bucket challenge (Milo VentimigliaXReader)
You were sitting on the deck of your boyfriends house when he came out and dropped a camera onto your lap.
"Any reason for the camera?" You asked picking it up.
"I was nominated for the ice bucket challenge and so were you" Milo replied going back inside to get ice and two buckets.
"Who nominated you?" You questioned standing up.
"Quinto" He said coming back out. You nodded and went over to the tap with a bucket to fill it up while he did the same in the kitchen. Once both buckets we're full you turned on the camera and put it where you were both in frame.
"So we've been nominated by Zachary Quinto to do the ALS ice bucket challenge and we're accepting it!" Milo said picking up a bag of ice handing you the other bag.
"Jesus the waters cold enough without the ice" You commented dipping your hand in.
"Well it'll be colder" Milo replied dumping the ice in the bucket. You shrugged and poured the ice in before standing up straight.
"Leave it for a few seconds to let the ice settle" He
Birth of the Legendary Sucker (Tickling Story)Our story begins in a quaint village nestled in the heart of Fire Country.
The birds are singing, people are milling about just starting their day.
And the sounds of wanton destruction fill the air to ruin all of that..
"That's damned slot machine is rigged i'm telling you!" A young Tsunade raged at the now demolished machine. Courtesy of her fist. As well as to the fearful attendant.
"But..uhm Miss. I keep telling you your too young to be gambling in here. You are only 15..." He jumped over the counter in fear she fixed him with a glare.
" Do you have any idea who my grandfather is? Do you have any idea how many people i have killed since i was 6 years old!? To hell with this place. It's cheats anyway!!"
Quickly stomping out the door she made her way to a well known local hotspring. Attempting to ironicly cool off. Slipping into the water she sunk down and soaked her head.
Thankful that the spring was clear this early in the day. As most are shopping or setting up shop in this merchan
Dear Adventurer or To Skyrim with LoveDear Adventurer,
If you are reading this then that means you are alive unless you are a ghost and I assume that you are not unlike me in the ways of adventuring and taking spoils for yourself. You have come upon me at a most indecent time. For I am dead, or I believe I am by the time anyone reaches me. If you can save me, though, that would be most helpful to me. There is a lot of blood.
Anyhow, I am writing this to warn you of the trials ahead in this horrible dungeon. I understand that there is something of great value at the end but the path there will not be an easy one. For I know this myself as I tried to reach the end myself but then decided against it and tried to turn back.
That was my undoing or is my undoing. I'm not dead yet. Or am I? Well, if I am indecent when you arrive, will you at least make me presentable? I don't mean touch up my war paint or anything but you could wipe my mouth of any blood or vomit? I would greatly appreciate such a notion of camaraderie.
Keep in Touch!
