Riddle, Anyone?

Smooth, flawless scales camouflage, beware.

Gliding on land, on air, in water.

An often lethal bite, uncanny accuracy. 

Unblinking eyes and flicking tongue terrify.

Ruby petals blossom from

A mottled frostbite 

Blue and black stem.

Roots pale as death 

Suck the joy and sanity

Out of the hearts of humanity.

Shrapnel, shattered glass, blades

Glisten as they jut from

The stem as thorns.

A perfect rose.

A horrifying abomination.

War.

Sunbeams pour like

Streams of warm honey to the

Far side of milk clouds to

Spill upon the earth.

Dripping, oozing, through the 

Soil to reach the

Glowing core beneath.

Soft opal feathered wings spread from its back.

It hovers there on the warm current of tranquility.

Rare. So very rare.

It is unlike any other, utterly unique.

An angel.

Angels.

Angels?

We, the artists, are compeers to the angels.

Not perfect beings but messengers, light-bearers,

Mouthpieces of the mute unseen glamour.

Multi colored auras pour from our souls like water falls

That solidify into beads of beauteous creativity.

Those wings?

Talents. Dreams. Balance.

Those things that we do, have done, wish to do.

Those wings are the life of the individual.

Those wings...

These wings...

These wings...

Fighting the Current

Poked, teased,

Laughed at, "pa-lease"ed.

An outcast, a nerd,

Considered totally absurd.

When seen, ignored.

When heard from, deplored.

But when I am writing,

That is how against them I am fighting.

What do I think?

I care what thee says because thou hast been understanding.

My Armour is thick in other ways.

My castle walls are constructed deeply but with emotion, not numbness.

A pin of disapproval from one dear to me can be like the hit of a 

Colossal stone thrown at glass walls.

I am alone in a world that won't cease to disapprove of my thoughts and actions.

I am destroyed by the aloneness.

I have yet to build strong enough walls to keep out the pain.

To keep out the judging sense of dissatisfaction.

I have yet to truly be able to resist the unopposed expectations of society.

My freedom is my fantasy.

In reality my freedom is controlled by everyone but me, it seems.

Fantasy is a safe-haven, an unpuncturable and uncontrollable imagination.

You asked about lies; 

Lies are true to a person until that person believes otherwise.

But you asked what I think.

What do I think?

I think that I will fight.

Dew and Dawn

A glimmering diamond;

A liquid crystal on a thread of

Steel-strong silk.

Emerald clad ladies dance

For the breeze,

Showing off their finery on

The meadow's floor.

Brightly coloured youth is

Returned to the 

Dull withered forest.

The teardrops from the 

Soft cheek of Dawn;

Fallen to nourish 

The Earth.

Love is like a...

Love is like a rose; 

Sweet, vibrant, dainty.

Love is like a book;

Unique, inspiring, magnificent.

Love is like a dragon; 

Fierce, elusive, ethereal.

Love is like a star;

Bright, warm, amaranthine.
