World And Words

We promised each other the world when our worlds were slowly falling apart.

We loved each other before we even knew what love was;

Maybe that is why it took so long to define what we were feeling.

And sometimes, not knowing how to express this feeling left me feeling helpless,

Like I was exploring the unknown alone,

But then I'd reach out and grab your hand and realize

I'm never alone. 

We'll rebuild our worlds together and never be left in the dark again.

We don't need perfect,

We'll create our own perfect all on our own.

There's two things I rarely see on Prose. Happiness and, well, prose. Right me a happy prose. It doesn't even have to start happy. Happy endings, funny experiences, angst with good rewards... that's all happiness, too!
Written by dustygrein in portal Fiction

The Game

"Lie to me, again."

"I love you!"

She jumped up out of my arms, and punched my shoulder hard. "You suck at this!”

“Sorry, it was all I could think of to say.”

She grabbed my hand and pulled me up to my feet, facing her. “Wait! So, you love me… is a LIE?”

I stepped in close to her, and she made a show of trying to push my arms away, but it was a very feeble attempt. As my arms slid around her waist, she she reached up and took my face in her hands.

“You’re lucky you are so damn cute.”

I saw the twinkle in her eyes. “Hey … we’re not playing the game now, are we?” I tried to pout, but she squeezed my cheeks and pulled my face down to hers. The taste of her lip balm, added to the softness of her lips, the scent of her toothpaste, and the merest hint of her tongue grazing my lips was enough to drive me nuts.

She knew it too.

Just when I started to sink into her kiss, she placed her hands against my chest, and pushed. I wasn’t ready for it and stumbled back a step, landing my butt back on the tree trunk.

“I suppose you’ll have to catch me and find out.” She grinned in the sly-as-a-fox way she has, turned and was suddenly off at a full run across the meadow.

I couldn’t help but beam as I took off. It was time to catch my love, and show her just how true my feelings were.

What's the difference between love and lust? (I dont have anything particular in mind, so just run with it)
Written by Harry_Situation in portal Micropoetry

Love vs Lust

Love is a cure

To sadness, loneliness, and sorrow

Giving joy and delight

Lust is a poison

To mind, heart, and soul

Causing despair and spite

Where the Wind Blows

Where the wind blows you will find me

where the wind goes you will find me

my hands fall in the stream 

in every single dream

but it's not as it seems where you find me

When the earth falls down you will find me

a queen in ivy crown you will find me

the mountains fade away

and nothing seems okay

but it's better if you stay where you'll find me

Where the songbirds fly you will find me

where the children cry you will find me

a mother trapped within

the comforts that you win

allotted to your kin where you find me

As the petals drop you will find me

as the times stop you will find me

waiting down below

a daughter to the snow

where the wind blows you will find me...

I might be nothing to you

I might be nothing to you

but if I'm nothing to you then why would you kiss my forehead so gently as if you're worried you'll hurt me?

and if I'm nothing to you why would you hold my hand, squeezing it as if to remind me that you're there?

If I'm nothing to you why would you hold me in your arms so tight as if you're afraid I'll leave?

If I'm nothing to you why would you kiss me as if you'll never kiss me again?

and if I'm nothing to you why would you stay awake all night with me as if your sleep is far less important?

and why, if I'm nothing to you, would you look at me the way you do?

why would you look at me as if I mean something to you?

I might be something to you

but if I'm something to you why would you leave me questioning my worth, as if I'm merely a dandelion alongside the roses?

and if I'm something to you why would you let me feel so insecure, as if I'm in a room, all the walls preparing to collapse at any given moment?

if I'm something to you why would you leave me wondering whether you'll want me when the seasons change, as if as it gets warmer you'll no longer want the warmth of my touch?

and if I'm something to you why would you not let me be yours, as if I'm only good for the chase?

I might be nothing to you

but goddamn you're something to me

what went

missing

biting my

squeezing

the ink

that settles

in the bent

On a Rainy Day

In the window

In the window

I saw the future fall to pieces

In the window glass turns to snow

And all I've ever felt

All I've ever known

All I was ever shown

Begins to go

In the window

I see a kite

A child's smile

After a fight

The roses bloom

For Ellis and Daisy

Alone in a room

And carelessly lazy

A painter at work

In an old garden shed

And millions of flowers

That once lived are dead

But the roses thrive

And all is alive inside

Too narrow to see

Too wide to be

Without breath, he left

And all that stood was me

In the window

All I see is all I know

The only light we feel

That floods in to make us grow

Is stolen from a memory

That took place long ago

And all we have is ashes

And ashes and ashes and ashes

Without fault and blame

In the game the rain plays

In the window

In the window

I saw the past mend itself...

being in love

Being in love is very funny thing

You tend to be very sharp when in love

you remember how she smells,

that smile,

her nose,

Her eye color,

Her eyebrows,

her fingers and toes,

everything about her is recorded in your brain

Love is not blind

Last Call, abridged

He calls me darlin. And angel, and pumpkin.

He calls everyone darlin, but his tongue snaps the roof of his mouth a little differently, when he says it to me.

We met in a bar. It's where I've met most of my men. But the night I met him, my past evaporated. The bar was empty. It was a grand opening, unadvertised and failed.

But not for us.

That night, I wore a typical first date getup. Something grown up. With a veil of confidence, stating "I know what I want," laced with some, "Don't worry, I'm a sure thing."

I ordered a manhattan, extra sweet. A splash of maraschino cherry juice, to remind me of my childhood.

He doesn't drink much, he has an ulcer. But that night he ordered scotch on the rocks. I guess he too was playing a part.

I've worn nothing but torn flannel and heavy eyeliner since that first night. And I almost always start with draft beer now.

He did get lucky that night, but that "luck" has since unfolded into a friendship birthed outside of time. His soul welcomed mine back from before time. Before creation. Where it belongs.

And, darlin, he is now and always will be my angel--guarding and walking with me--into the end of time and beyond.

Chapter 42 of Of Love, Loss & Loneliness
Written by Cross in portal Poetry & Free Verse

L'amour Detruit

And I have said it before.

And I will say it again:

Love Destroys.

Relentlessly, she corrodes

Everything.

And you cannot hope

To escape

Her deathly grasp.

She feeds on your desires.

She intoxicates you with lies.

Let your guard down.

Let her in.

Embrace her.

She will devour you alive.

And you will feel no pain

Until it is too late.

Love, coupled with time,

Leads only to

Misery, and grief, and loss.

She claims all, and still

Hungers for more.

Love Destroys.

And when your time comes,

She will destroy you, too.

As she has done

To countless others before.
