Okay here's the entries guys, sorry there so late >.<

One

We city folk had never seen such beauty,
So we looked in earnest wonder.
We knew these mountains
Were going to become hell's plunder?

We ran in the thin streets,
We noticed the locals.
We bought marbles,
We teased squirrels.

Who knew, indeed, who,
This this was going to turn into wasteland?
This pleasant area of
Woodland, perhaps our dreamland?

And they came with guns
Their armor (and later excuse) ignorance
And today, my beautiful land
Has lost its silence.
The air rings with shots
Fired a dozen to the poke
And I look in horror
And pray it's a sick joke

Their homes are broken,
The doors are ajar.
The land that was beautiful,
Is now the one on which they wage war.

Two

California Dreamin`


It was you and me. me and you.
We talked for days, months and now its years.
We dreamed of one place.


We dreamed of the place where the sun sets high,
its rays glittering on us like happy diamonds,
we made plans for placing that christmas tree in the sand,
to laugh and giggle, all good fun.


We escaped inside of our head when things went wrong
and thought of that place, that one place that was coming
to us so slowly and we felt like maybe it would be okay,
because then we would be together.


Time has all but slowed or so it seems but everytime I see your face,
I think of the crashing of the sea, the call of the birds,
the wind tangling my hair and my hand in yours.

When I hear your voice and smell your skin,
I see the place I want to go.


Let`s go together.

________________________________________________

Three

Even In My Dreams


Every night when I lay my head upon my pillow
I wonder where my nocturnal imagination
Will take me next.

Will I travel to a different country?
Will I go mountain climbing?
Will I scuba dive?

Will I conquer all of my fears?
Will I just take a chance?

All of those would be very nice,
And I look forward to every single adventure
That I might encounter.

But the one I hope for every night
Is the most adventurous of them all:

I want hug him.
I want to kiss him.
I want to love him.

After all, loving someone from afar is pretty
Adventurous,
Exhilarating, and even,
Dangerous.

But, I know,
That in here,
In my heart,
In my dreams,
I could never be hurt.

For love conquers all,
If only in my dreams.

___________________________________________________

Four

I wondered where,
I wondered just how far the river ran.
They spoke so soft and clear and sweet
About the land in the east
And in the west.
“Anywhere but here, lord;
Anywhere but here.”
They spoke to me through pitchfork tongues
About how much they hated home.
And I told myself before I stood to walk
That I would stand to roam.
Brainwashed by the thousands of attic books
Romantic journeys through the wide, deep world;
And I pictured. And I pictured smoke guiding me
Smoke of some unknown enemy, friend, teacher
Brother; The last breath of some spirit I should have known.
I hoped the wind that shakes the sun swept plains
Would whisper meaning through the window.
I wait; and I wait; and I wait for a sign.
It’s times like these when you have to make your own;
Newspaper clippings and old cigars,
Any piece of throwaway culture to sew together new.
New life; New news.
I’ll make a sign; I’ll make myself close my ears
And my eyes; And form a new sign.
I’ll make it. I’ll make it. I can.

__________________________________________________

Five

I made a wish,
Once upon a falling star,
When mother told me the moon, was held by Gods hands
God spun the stars too, on the great canvas sky
And that dazzling dust was solidified lullaby.

They shone the brightest when she softly sang.

I wished,
More than anything to hold a star,
For the moon was in Gods golden hands
And my fingertips were too brass, to brag of such wonder
Lullabies finish and stars die.

And it never landed under my crowned head of delicate duck feather.

Skin ages and the body tires, bone creek and the mind unravels
The stars stay desolate in the heavens hailing ignorant to the north
Though mother has long stopped singing
It’s hard to tell with the drag of sordid soil and pitiful pine
God’s hands no longer hold the moon, nor does he cover it finger by finger
It’s scientific all numbers and long words that never meant a thing to me

All the mystery behind the magic’s gone.

Though the stars remain silent yet snugly mocking

Cramming a treasured trash bag I set out to find my wayward fallen star.

And I'm not going to be posting the prompt this week, instead I'm going to have to ask for someone to take over the competition for a while for me. As you've probably guessed I'm having trouble keeping up with it at the moment because of school. I have exams coming up in like 2 weeks and if I don't get good grades I'm pretty much screwed. I'm gonna have to spend the free time I usually having on friday mornings to revise and stuff and seeing as I work on saturdays, Sunday is my only full day to get stuff done. I should be done near the end of may and be able to take it back over but until then I'd really appreciate someone stepping in for a while. If you're interested PM me and I'll give it to the first person there : )
Thanks for all the support and helping me get this set up guys, you've all been brilliant <3

Here are the entries for this week :]

--------

One


Demons and Monsters

I screamed. I cried.
Convinced that the closet held demons inside.
Check under the bed, is it just dark under there?.

When I cried out for you, mother, you cam running.

Where are you now?

He`s here, mother, its just daddy but the monster is back again.
Hands grabbing me, covering my mouth,
putrid, rotten breath, hot, sweaty and animalistic.

I screamed. I cried.

I checked the mirror before I lay down to sleep
and I see the evil, the demon staring back at me,
clawing, howling, fighting to get free.

When I was a child, the innocence hovered
and I grew out of believeing in monsters.

I have been forced to believe again.

Check under your bed and lock the door,
the boogeyman isn`t just for childeran anymore.


----------------------------

Two

Silent laughs
and whisps of smoke
the candles on the table
that turn out now
the ghosts within
are winning with each breath

More and more
they hold onto me
and whisper in my ears
to keep you still
to watch you writhe
and end it oh so slowly

and as they win
i can't feel myself
i'm not me anymore
and when i'm still sane
i'd like to say
stay away from this message board

----------------------------

Three

It lets itself die
or at least it tries
a feeling too good for words
and too bad for anything more

hours would pass
far slower than the days
I don't know what I was thinking
but I don't think she knew either
with the flick of a finger
and a few vocal chords strung
something with in me had
been rekindled

I don't remember the days before it
and I don't remember anything after
but the puddles of mud around my house-
a bit too colorful for my taste,
told it all

it says separated from me
from itself

so it can't be disturbed while
recharging

until next time it wins;
we're safe

or we can at least try.

-------------------------------

Four

Monsters

Monsters watch me through his eyes,
judging, cautious, waiting for me to flinch,
drawing me closer like a moths to a light,
deep within his soul.

Monsters taste me though his mouth,
tempting with sweet kisses and heart pounding moments.
They’re always hungry, never sated,
calling me through soft, parted lips.

Monsters touch me through his skin,
an itch never scratched all over my body,
always searching for the right spot
for his evil hands to lay.

Monsters control me though his words,
all too beautiful and never altering,
sweet nothings into a vacant heart,
filling it up until there’s no truth left.

Monsters crave him through my body,
his eyes, his skin, his lips, his demons,
completing me in every way possible,
until I have become his monster myself.

--------------------------

Five

My granted innocence

Celebrating wraths, anniversaries
Celebrating more that the death
Of a tortured day
As sweet as candy and strawberries
On every July,
And every May

But beneath them lays a phantom
That which my soul cannot remember
That which my mind in haunted with
But I look again,
On the third of September
This day is the reality of my mistakes

How to recall my anger, my monster, and
My ghosts aren't cotton white
They are the weakness of my might
Their bodies have no shapes,
But they all look alike
And the spirits of deep cursing eyes are shipping away

Flake-like fire flares fall on that day
Shaking heaven's temper
The day life saw your eyes,
The third of September
What a greatness, I stepped on a clue
Wingless beasts inside of you

And curiosity's doors my heats breaks
To walk behind the trace of my mistakes
To know what your anger tastes like
What a fire it can strike,
Inside my centre
And my drafts covered with blacking

Temples built by the living
Built for the sake of the dead
A depiction of what's hid inside
And more deplorable words laying ahead
All are the ones to decide
What sort of monsters I am

For how long can my strength hold on?
And enforce the chains, so to be unbreakable
The chains my monsters are attached to
Don't let the sun see my ghosts,
Don't let my ghosts see the sun
And cost the mortal world less anguishing stories to tell

----------------------------

Six

Jack's Ripping London Apart.

Drinking this jinxed Jekyll elixir to hinder horrid Hyde, pity we never believe in ancient wicker and witches of white.

We mourn for the forgotten signs of the zodiac and scream praise on the day of the sacred solstices.

For Atlantis rots under watery depths of death upon the sadistic violins to sinking ships, bands play broken melancholy on top decks.

Jacks ripping London apart betweens the chimes of Ben, while Lucifer lives between the pages of every student’s biological study.

Pale moonlit fingertips are luring us into stagecoaches with sharp smiles and crow clawed eyes.

There’s malicious murder at the foot of St Paul’s.

And I never liked cathedrals.

One


They say
Among the blind the one-eyed man is king.
But what of a king
Who can't speak, or communicate what he sees?
What if he sees fantastic visions, visions the blind can never be
Able to imagine in their life, let alone see?

They ask
Were you born...? Or was it an accident...?
There ought to be a third option.
Blinded. Blinded by the world.
We aren't born blind, we become blind.
Sweet, sweet irony, when we see we actually don't.

And those babies-
Despise them as I do, for their worthless existence-
Can see them. Angels. Demons. Ghosts.
They laugh and they gurgle;
They cry and scream;
They seem to know.

But them babies? What's the use?
What if you can see the most beautiful things in the world
And then forget, and spend the rest of your life wondering
If God really does exist?
Why can't we see them?
Perhaps we do and don't see them still.



-------------------------



Two

With a touch of laze

"A baby!" life says
The gleam of it's eyes awake the cheer
Like bright angels charmed by hope's desire
You can almost sense the Angels while they near
To welcome it into our venality!
So long to grow and be a liar
Maybe even lower , a criminal,
A killer, maybe even higher..

And no one knows who babies are
How high they've traveled through heavens
And if they were touched by a star
Called " Innocence and Purity"

With matches it plays
What's hiding inside it's eyes other than fear?
Eyes made of soft tender paper in a world made of fire
Sampling the funniest words it can hear
Nabbing the days that shake our stability
Then drowning your dog, and breaking the hair drier
Innocence cursing the direness of life
So long to grow and be a liar

And no one knows how far,
Or how long they’ve been traveling,
Or how long you can stare
At their eyes as fine as silk

With a touch of laze
It knows when to let it's smiles interfere
But the blackness it's hiding will grow higher
Then it'll live to be a teen with a whole life to steer
Don't stop now, not here.. Enjoy it's benignity
Before the nightmares come to life
So long to grow and be a liar!


-----------------------------


Three

The Tarnished Fakers

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear,
you`ve been blind again,
didn`t heed the warning.
Stupid, stupid, stupid,
how could you have forsaken the word?.


You`ve read the bible,
have you not?.
Angels radiated and dress with innocence,
sweet little babyface,
save us from the fall of man.


Disgrace. Ignorance.
Shunned.


Death



You have been fooled by the very best,
as gentle as a babe, tiny cherub fist,
fight against Hell with the seraphim.
[Golden angel, how you have tarnished]

Nasty. Dirty.
Murder



In this fight,
we pit against the "angels",
we call them Painseekers, Soulstealers,
they pose as childeran and babies,
we can only see them with our real eyes.
[ The fakers ]


Warm blood. Beating heart.
Ripped from your chest.



------------------------


Four

The light sky blue
of her trembling eyes
the sandy hair
on her small, round head

The manic laughing
that i loved so much
and her soft body
that i held close

An angel
come down in disguise
her angelic burble
her amazing giggle
a wonder to behold

Okay, so I was thinking of something creative that I could use as a prompt and I stumbled across this, it will be interesting to see what you guys come up with.
If you know the book from which this passage came from, please do not say it.
I would like it remain anonymous since I do not wish for the whole plot of the book to be associated with the prompt. Here we go :]


They were in the smoky mountains at their favorite bed-and-breakfast. David was smiling down at her. "What do you say, gorgeous? Marry me?" Looking up from their canopy bed, she knew he was the one. Forever. As she stared into his deep-green eyes, somewhere in the distance a deafening bell began to ring. It was pulling him away. She reached for him, but her arms clutched empty air. It was the sound of the phone that fully awoke Susan Fletcher from her dream. She gasped, sat up in bed, and fumbled for the reciever.

"Hello?"

"Susan, it's David. Did I wake you?"

4 entries this week...

-----------------

One


Beneath The Breaking Point


I was swimming, head submerged.

I was clawing for the surface,
palms and fingernails never scraping
but I was reaching my breaking point.


A face shimmered, distorted, sunlight behind it,
in and out of focus.
The voice, thick, distant, familiar.


Laughter bestowed upon the memories,
play out for me.

Forever, baby, forever and ever

Finger heavy, shining so brightly,
happines bubbling forth, I would surely die.


Body floating, random pieces drifting by,
catch a piece and put it back together,
you might make something of it,
something that makes you happier,
something that you could love,
something thats not me.


Kisses pelting my upturned face, eyes closed,
teardrops, drops of Gods tears.

I`ll always love you, baby.
We`ll be together forever
.

Strong sinewy arms holding me down.

If I was ever to reach the surface,
I would just like to say
"Thanks for the disillusionment".


----------------------------

Two

A wedding dress
that gleamed like snow
"white gold" they'd say
as i beamed so proudly

The man at my side
his smile so slight
but that meant more to me
than the worlds combined

And as i woke
i felt the voice
that was so dead and bleak inside

and dreading what came
i closed my eyes
as the dreams bew into dust

and that's all thy were
just dreams to cling on too
but a new dream wll come
a new gold will find home
and more hopes will come my way


----------------------------

Three

The view from the room was special
More special than you can imagine
But the body that lay in my lap
Was the most special thing there

The view in my mind was silent
More silent than her grave
And the body that lay in my lap
Was the most silent thing there

The sunlight that blew through the trees
Was brighter than tears of an angel
Your body that lay in my lap
Glew brighter than everything else

The mountains that stood in the distance
Had promised a brand new land
But your body that lay in my lap
Was the only promise I had

The hope a brand new life
Had brought us all the way here
But my loves body that lay in my lap
Destroyed all the hope that I had

----------------------------

Four


Distorted luck of Lucifer

In warm sheets we spot their soma
Almost merged in one, as my heart supposed
There arouse the lively aroma
To die out near the window's own artistry
Mountains like her fake flake-white wedding gown
Capped with pure winter fume

For what she felt when being near his eyes
The ascendancy of love
To own the ability to distinguish
What was meant to be unreal
And what was not
To discover the eyes of the arsonist's plot

And a smile made of warble
It looked down at her pupils
In them reflected the coalition
The way David coaxed her attention
"What do you say, gorgeous? Marry me?"
To him, to her green-eyed David she spared her strength

This had to strike carnivals inside her curved heart
There she marked the sunrise of her dreams
Her humbled pleas and wishes
It’s what she has been asking the carver of souls for
In the magical mystic music, there she lost her doubt
She felt like a toddler still trying life out

His tuneful breath clutched her soul
And she clutched his,
So to immortalise this moment
What letters her eyes sent
Written by a pen, where desire was poured in its ink
Flirting with her roses, coating her face in pink

But one strange tinkle tore them apart
And the clashing feelings had to dart
The death of a leaf of spring
The awful death knell, the phone's trodden ring
Marching right into the sight of her half-closed ear
Demolishing the noble moment

Who could be calling when dreams were still taking over?
Why this use of one slang complain?
His image hovered away from her hands
Before she realised what she had to do
"Hello" muttered the clueless voice
"Susan, it's David. Did I wake you?"

One

Mommy, mommy,
Are you there?
I went to play, without a care,
Then i heard a deafening sound.

A minute ago this was our home,
Not a trace of you left,
Not even your comb.
What happened mommy?

Where are my brothers?
Fighting the war, just like the fathers.

Sounds of bangs fill the air, mommy,
I'm scared, mommy.

I don't want to leave,
But i fear i must.
Or else I too might get blown to dust.

Goodbye mommy,
Tomorrow, I'll probably join you.

-------------------------



Two

The Ceiling of the Sun

Houses built to reach the ceiling of the sun
Paintings, of safe homes, sinking in the rubble
Flawless daemons couldn't do what we have done
This destruction, an artistry by the duce of trouble
Insane blood stains to live, double.

Erase the err thoughts as our nails turn to claws
The human attrition burning revenge into war
The forehead's sweat. Forehead of the one who knows
That this world is bloated. It has a face just to lour
Killing us from the core, growin' more

The amorist enlarging the leaks in the boat..
We're all trapped in! Cursing the endless sea
Whores muting the minaret's light. Music of a dying note
Defaulting the right, living the wrong. Letting it be
The ascendancy of them, or me.

The falling leaves all watching us, as eyes.
Cutting our hands, hands holding the holy pen
There sleeps the light as a sheaf of clouds flies
Hiding a sun, counting the number of killers we've been
Today's dying boys, they are but dead men

The rich, shod nations were pleased just to stare
As the rocks got shaken, dipped into our blood
The rose's awe is being unveiled! Their selves, their dare.
To kill! But Still.. Some hope is planting by a dud
Right below the rubble, the blood and mud...

-----------------------------


Three

As I walk this path,
of words left unspoken,
the smoke fills my lungs,
the fire leaves me broken,
and there are tears that fall,
for the ones that fell with it,
I'm wondering why,
this world is so selfish.

My feet hurt now,
my eyes are getting heavy,
I don't now how,
I'm ever going to make it,
are the angels here,
to take me away,
oh please god please,
don't make me stay.

I've found my place,
the place that I belong,
among the ashes,
we've all grown strong,
and look at my wings,
look at me fly,
I can finally leave,
this selfish world behind.
------------------------


Four

]Tell Me I Have Something Left


It was a little wooden house,
not even that, held together by mud and sticks.

Shivering, shaking, thin shoulders that protude with bone,
quivering, shouts and screams, harsh native language,
bullets and sick laughter falling like rain.

and thats when the world fell apart

A thick explosion sinks into the air,
debris, death and things that go unmetioned
trickle down like the revenge God swore he would give.


Smoke in his eyes, rotting stench clogging his throat,
hands reaching, searching, where was his house?

"Mama" "MAMA" "MAAAMAAA"

Stumble, tripping of the core of what used to be his neighbor,
insides on the out, eyes would be blank if they were still intact on his face.


Thin legs can`t hold up his body, sink down, amidst
the garbage, the wreckage, what use to be his life,
fat tears rolling down his cheecks as he curls up into a ball,
his head on something or someone, who can tell?.

He never had anything.
Now he has nothing.

Dreams

Sleepiness
and out of the shadows
comes a dream of many powers
sleep for days
and dream for hours
you could be the one with powers
dream of things unimaginable
until you wake with a fright
of a nightmare that held you tight
dream of things that make you shake
but not enough to make you wake
the dreams you dream
just might seem fake
but take it in and make it real
as real as you could feel
the night around you seems very still
this is to you
so you'll remember
you can always just surrender
to sleepiness
and dreams of powers

Entries for this week!


------------


One

We're standing up for something
We think we feel is strong,
While others will oppose us
For what they see as wrong.

How can anyone decide
What's wrong if they go
By what they have been told?
How can they surely know?

We choose to persevere
Through harsh beatings and lines
With our non-violent way
Of holding up picket signs.

Why, Why, Why?
Let's go! We'll not fight!
I'll defend my heroes
Today-Tonight!

We may not have everyone
Behind us and on our side,
But we have true support.
Look now! We have won!

-------------------------



Two


High Explosive Shades

The collidin' shades,
The colliding screams,
With treacherous dreams
And we're all strength less.
But rearmed by sweet sinful faith,
Caution! Here comes the sky we came to bathe
With this protest!

Grab your MyChem Jacket,
Get your dunest dress
Caution! No more suicidal thoughts,
Mounting the unknown for our own sakes!
Think happy thoughts only,
In the hall of shame!
Send god a last plea,
Before we leave,
That no child shall smell her blood before she dies!
Or wait until her folks sense the hung rope
Right above the self-murder scene
Cross your fingers, they'll see what we have foreseen!

She used to cut her wrists before she dies-
They say!
Thought of suicide
Oh, sweet suicide!
Like the daub of red roses of pain,
Sweetly hovering over her veins,
Exhausted heart with needless beating.
But our Sweet Romance band,
They shouted for her,
Tried to pull her away from the seas of misery.

For her, and our sweet romance we shall march,
Until we reach the sunset,
Touch it with our voices!
And we'll solute your vampires on our way, Mr Way!
On the very last day of May,
We sit in the lap of the sun
To slay the conclusion of all sorrows!
Oh, what the world owes...
Me, You, Us!

Oh, lovely suicide,
Sweet vicious suicide
Go fade to vapour
And melt into nothing as we speak
About vanishing you
From our blackened skies...
From dreams bloated with lies.

And a farewell, kids like us...
Like me, like you.
And our dear Mr. Way!
-----------------------------


Three

The Sound of Peace

Hot asphalt let rivers of wavering heat
rise up in a steady stream
[ adding fuel to the starting fire]

A throng of sweating, slick, tired bodies,
skin flushed red, hair sticking to the base of exposed throat,
arm raised high, unsteady, shaking, relentless,
hand grasping, closing around a cardboard sign of belief.

"Hell no! we won`t go!"

Limp garland of wilted daises perched on her head,
tears welled up in her eyes,
its been so long since she recieved a letter from him.

"Make love, not war!"

They pace in front of them,
plastic shields glinting in the unforgiving downpour of sunlight,
eyes narrowed, hands tightning around weapons of choice
"nasty litte tree huggers" they mutter to one another
"our boys goin` over there and fightin`and dyin` for their sorry asses".


and internal war erupted.

Chaos. screams. feet pouding pavement,
signs defying goverment dropped in fear.

Hands covering faces, backs and legs repeatedly beat
even though they lay crumpled in a listless heap.

Fire. fire?.
smoke billowing, burning, blinding, whose who?.


She stands up, lips swollen, eye blackened,
faint scent of ganja clinging to the thin fabric of her ankle length skirt,
feet dirtied as they stand in sandals,
she lifts up her pale hand and lowers three fingers
and seperates the first too. peace

The bullet went through the seperated fingers
and straight into her head.

"All we are saying is give peace a chance."
