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
Fur (Remus LupinXReader)
Thanks to Snape still making Remus the wolfsbane potion he was able to transform in Grimmauld Place locked in the room you both shared. This night he forgot it was the full moon thinking it was tomorrow but thankfully had still taken the potion so he'd keep his mind. You were with Sirius, Molly, Arthur, the twins, Ron, Hermione, Ginny and Harry downstairs when you all heard Remus scream as he transformed.
"Wasnt he in the shower?" Sirius asked.
"This is gonna be good" You nodded as a howl sounded next.
"How is that good?!" Arthur hissed a bit scared.
"Just wait" Sirius replied. A few moments later you all heard the sound of claws scraping against the wooden floor before Remus stalked into the room dripping wet but in control.
"Dont you dare Remus John Lupin!" You warned. Sirius was about to hold up his newspaper to cover his face but it was to late. Remus shook his body sending water everywhere.
"Bad Remus! Oh my Godric" You started before you and Sirius broke down laughing. Remus just
Sex talk in class (Young!Remus LupinXReader)You sat beside Remus in your transfiguration class both in your 6th year at Hogwarts. Remus being bored and knowing about what McGonagall was teaching at that moment started running his hand teasingly along your thigh hiding a smirk. You short him a death glare and tried to focus but couldn't with him continuing. After 10 minutes you were fidgeting in your seat as Remus had randomly shoved his hand down your pants before turning his attention back to McGonagall.
"Remus. Get. Your. Hand. Out of my pants!" You hissed so only he could hear.
"Hmm nope" Remus smirked tapping his quill against his chin.
"Now!" You said which caught McGonagalls attention.
"Miss Potter, Mister Lupin what is so important that you have to talk during my class?" She demanded. You went silent and Remus mentally smirked widely before putting his quill down.
"You don't wanna know so I'm just gonna say Quidditch" He replied still not taking his hand out of your pants.
"No go ahead do share" McGonagall smirked thinkin
18 | Modern!Levi x Reader |
18, crazy, pulled up in your daddy's car.
Your right hand gripped the steering wheel, knuckles white from the tight hold. Your fingers shook from excitement while your eyes were locked onto the road, a grin plastered on your face. If your smile was any wider, your skin would probably crack. Your left hand was rested onto the side window, holding a cigarette. You knew that smoking was far from good from you. You knew all too well. But why did you start? Maybe because it made you feel alive? Free? Maybe. It wasn't just smoking that made you feel free, but the fact that this wasn't even your car. You had to plead and beg your father to drive it every single time you wanted to go out. But maybe, just maybe, this would be the last time you drove his car- and started driving Levi's.
When you got back to the Bunker after a successful Vamp hunt you were looking forward to a good sleep and good food. But when you got in you saw smoke coming from the kitchen. Quickly you ran over and ran into the kitchen only to see Gabriel standing there covered in cake and frosting.
"Gabriel?! What the hell?!" You demanded running in before turning on the fan to get rid of the smoke.
"Uggh......surprise?" Gabriel laughed nervously rubbing the back of his neck.
"What?" You asked after the smoke cleared.
"Well I tried to make a cake since your always saying I use my power to much and it well......blew up" Gabriel explained looking to the oven.
"Gabriel sweetie as nice as that is never go never the oven again and please fix it before Sam and his royal highness gets back or they'll both throw bitch fits" You patted his shoulder looking at the remains of the cake he tried to make.
"Darling for once I won't argue with you" Gabriel nodded snapping his fingers making the kitchen go back to
Forbidden love (Lucius MalfoyXReader) part 4It's been a year and you and Remus were still dating and going strong. He stayed over in your house for two weeks during the summer along with Sirius who was close to being disowned by his parents. Lucius was still in a pissy mood and you still hadn't figured out why but you caught him glaring at Remus a few times again. After you settled back into Hogwarts for your fourth year you became close with Lily and Marlene who never brought up why you chose to sit beside Lucius in charms which you did again this year. So far the year was going well until Christmas came. You were walking to the library to catch up on your homework when you passed Regulus.
"You going to the library?" He asked making you stop.
"Yeah" You nodded.
"Watch out for Lucius he threw a bitch fit not 5 minutes ago" Regulus warned.
"Why?" You asked confused.
"No idea just started throwing books around" Regulus shrugged before he left back to the dungeons. You watched him go before continuing to the library. When you
Thunder Buddies (SteveXReader) OneShot(F/N) (L/N) hated thunder. You could even say she despised it. In her world nothing was worse than the noise. All the crashing and booms, as she put it. It irritated her to Oblivion and back. And today was one of those days were it was raining, lightning as striking everywhere, and worse of all there was lots and lots of thunder.
And because of this (F/N) refused to go outside. Most of the day had passed by with her watching movies in her bed, and stuffing her face with cake. Steve had gone out to the store to pick up some more milk leaving (F/N) at home with no supervision. This is never a good idea…
“Fuck you thunder! You can suck my dick!” this was the first thing Steve had heard when he walked inside his small apartment. ‘Not again’ he thought. After putting his groceries away he walked into the small bedroom the two shared. Then he was met with a puzzling sight.
(F/N) was hidden under a pile of pillows and blankets on top of their bed, cursing Thor fo
FUCK YEAH (Drunk!Rick GrimesXDrunk!Reader)
There were some moments you loved your brothers but being stuck in a car with Rick for 5 hours because they didnt want to be was not one of those moments. It had only been 10 minutes and already you were literally banging your head off the window out of boredom and thinking of ways to murder Daryl and Merle and make it look like Glenn did it.
"Will you stop banging your head off the window it's annoying!" Rick snapped after another 5 minutes.
"But I'm bored! I don't think I can go 5 hours sitting in a car with you in awkward silence!" You whined.
"If this is you bored I'd hate to see Merle" Rick shivered at the thought.
"He almost stabbed a farmer" You said shaking your head at the memory.
"Rick, Rick, Rick, Rick, Rick, Rick, Rick......" You started.
"What?!?" Rick said looking at you.
"You have a nice beard" You said reaching your hand over before petting his cheek.
"...................." Rick just stared at you before leaning away from your touch turning his eyes back to the ro
Stay out of it (Lucius MalfoyXPregnant!Reader)
Spells shot left and right barely missing you as you deflected spells aimed at the students of Hogwarts some of whom were barely 12. On either side of you stood Remus and Sirius (I didn't have the heart to kill him again so he's alive deal with it) your best friends since you started school with your twin brother James. Somehow you managed to get separated from them when Greyback got involved in the action and found yourself near the courtyard. When Voldemort called his forces to retreat you made a move to go back to find Sirius and Remus before someone grabbed you around the waist and dragged you to the sidelines away from the doors.
"I told you to stay away!" Lucius growled turning you to face him.
"And I told you I wasn't gonna let my nephew and friends fight alone!" You replied shrugging out of his grip.
"You are in no condition to fight and ill be damned if anything happens to you or our child" Lucius said eyeing you.
"I'm perfectly fine to fight Lucius!" You defended c
Date? (Young!Sirius BlackXReader)The day started out normal for you. Wake up, go to breakfast with Xeno, go to class, do whatever in your free time, go back to class, go to dinner, do homework, go to bed. Until today. You were walking to charms with Xeno as normal with Sirius Black the school manwhore and one of the Marauders stopped you.
"Hi" He grinned flirtily.
"Umm hi?" You replied glancing at Xeno who was looking at a butterfly that landed on his hand.
"Your (Y/n) right?" Sirius asked leaning against a statue.
"Yeah" You nodded.
"Well (Y/n) I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of coming to Hogsmead with me this weekend?" Sirius proposed still grinning.
"I'd love to but I'd rather not be one of your hook ups" You shook your head.
"Come on one date!" Sirius whined.
"No.....besides I have a date" You lied.
"Who? Loony Lovegood?" Sirius pointed to Xeno who was still intrigued by the butterfly.
"His name is Xeno and no it's not with him" You replied.
"Who then?" Sirius asked curiously.
"......Regulus asked me" You
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.
A Bloody, Stupid Miracle The day we’d cured the human condition was the day I put a bullet through my head and didn’t die. It was also the day I realized how scared I actually was of death, and after hours of muscle ache from holding that gauze against my open skull, after the wound closed and everything went back to normal, I had myself a good old-fashioned brainstorm. How ironic.
But when summer came, everything had fallen to shit. The air scorched my skin and parched my tongue every time I took a breath. The sun glared down on a rapidly-collapsing world, full of the undying bastard children of cruelty and misfortune. What was one to do when their cells regenerated faster than they decomposed?
My feet hit the pavement, now littered with jagged bits of glass to snap at my toes, thoroughly baked by the blazing ball of bitter disdain high overhead. Today was worse than yesterday. Though I’d often wondered the purpose of it anymore, I
