girl that lived down the lane

stars pool in the puddles left at her feet
as she walks, and skips, and runs through the world’s broken streets

and the sky laughs in clouds
as she runs her gentle hands through slippery blades of grass, maps the cracks in aging trees


this goddess of kindness and sweet smiles
makes the flowers and trees strain after her fingertips 
even when she has moved on to the next and the next


she walks and she runs 
down abandoned country lanes
in that fine balance between the world sleeping and awakening 


down abandoned beaches 
where the sand kisses the grey ocean kisses the grey sky 
where the world stops and holds its breath 
as her luminescent footsteps press their mark into its skin
remindingpressingwhispering–insisting:
i am here


and the sky laughs in breezes
ruffling the pages of her books, trying to get more than a bright muffled laugh
and the sun shines in doses 
trying to emulate the warmth she wears like a cloak 


and the moon, she smiles
as the girl laughs, and lives, and breaks, and grows 


and the world
it holds its breath
as this goddess walks though its broken streets and reminds it of humanity

the goddess of warmth wears a crown of stars | s.a.s. | wild goddesses #2

I’m late but a little piece for @eunoiaschaos for her birthday–never stop shining bb <333

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

   "Wha….?“ A deep, drowsy voice was heard in the dark room, along with the buzzing and the soft and quiet snoring from another person — or rather hedgehog in the room.

  Shadow, the crimson-streaked black hedgehog who had woken up to the sound of a faint, quiet buzzing in his ears, groaned lowly in frustration as he was woken up from a peaceful sleep with his lover, Sonic, who apparently wasn’t bothered by the buzzing at all as he can hear how the other was slightly snoring and saw him drooling on his pillow, despite it being completely pitch black in the room.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

   He sat up slowly as to not wake up his sleeping lover, then looked down at his pillow to see a bright light shining from underneath it. Oh… So that’s what the noise was.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

  Reaching under his pillow, he grabbed his phone and brought it up to his face, grunting a bit from the bright light but adjusting quickly to it. He raised an eyeridge in confusion as his ruby eyes locked onto a number. Someone was calling him.

   ”Why would someone call me in the middle of the night?“ The ebony hedgehog mentally asked himself as he stared at the number. It was a number he hasn’t seen before, but, something was telling to answer. And normally, if there was a number he didn’t know, he’d just ignore it or drop the call… However… Tonight, he decided to trust his instincts.

   Slowly, he scooted himself to the edge of the bed as he answered the call. I mean, what could go wrong? It was either some person who got the wrong number or maybe some prankster who thinks it’s a good idea to call someone at this ungodly hour.

  Whoever it was, he couldn’t wait to get it over with so he could go back and join his precious blue hedgehog in sweet slumber.

   "Hello…?” He spoke softly, making sure not to wake up Sonic.
       "Um.. Is… Is t-this Shadow?“
       "S-Silver…?”


♫~Honey why you calling me so late?
It’s kinda hard to talk right now~

  “Silver?” Shadow spoke quietly but in a shocked tone, now more awake than before from hearing the ivory hedgehog’s voice.

  “Oh, h-hey Shadow.” Silver spoke from the other end, who also spoke quietly. “It’s um… Good to see you still have the same phone number.”

    To say that Shadow was surprised is a complete understatement.

    He is practically speechless to hear the ivory hedgehog’s voice after so many years of silence, especially at this hour.

   "I find it impractical to change my number. Besides, it’s what everyone has" Shadow finally answered, drawing a breath as he whispers “So, how are you?” Honestly, he had no idea what to talk to Silver about, and the latter seems to sense this.

♫~Honey why are you crying, is everything okay?
I gotta whisper cause I can’t be too loud~

   There was a moment of silence on both lines, both hesitating to speak for a moment, the silence awkward for the both of them.

   "I just want to apologize. For everything" the ivory male began, his quiet voice quivering.
       "Silver, are you okay? Are… are you crying?“ Shadow was concerned; if Silver was crying and suddenly calling him in the middle of the night… it must be something big.
       "Silver, you can talk to me, it’s okay”

 He heard the other drew a breath on the other line, and spoke softly once again.

♫~Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you~

   "I’m alright. Really I am" Silver continued “I really just want to apologize. F-for suddenly disappearing on you, and not contacting you for years. I guess I couldn’t bear to face you for my own stupidity”

   The ebony hedgehog only hummed, keeping his voice as quiet as he could as to not wake his partner peacefully sleeping beside him, a space Silver used to occupy before.

    Just what exactly happened between them? The ebony male couldn’t recall how he and Silver just… fell out of place.

♫~I guess we never really moved on~

   On Silver’s end, his partner shifted in his sleep. The ivory male tensed suddenly, gasping, fearing he had woken Mephiles up. He stayed quiet, careful not to make a single noise, before calming himself down. Mephiles didn’t wake up. Good.

    “Silver, are you still there?” Came Shadow’s worried whisper. He realized he must’ve went suddenly quiet for a while. Biting his lips, he replied in a more hushed tone, now being much more careful.



    “Yeah, I’m still here. Mephiles suddenly moved, and I thought I woke him up. Sorry for going quiet all of a sudden” Silver explained, his heart still pounding from the fright he just had.

   "It’s alright. I’m trying to keep as quiet as possible too; wouldn’t wake to wake Sonic up"
       "But really, sorry about that"

   A small smile formed on Shadow’s tan muzzle as he slowly shook his head.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

   "You know Silver" The dark hedgehog began “This reminds me of when we used to stay up late and talk back then”
       "It does?“
       "Yeah; you and I talked a lot about ourselves, and share our problems with one another”

    Shadow heard a small chuckle on the other side “Yeah, you always had helpful advice and you listen attentively” Silver answered with a quiet sigh, and a smile on his own lips. “I on the other hand didn’t have any helpful advice”

    Then Shadow continued “Remember that time when we found that butterfly with broken wings?”
       "I remember that one; we nursed it back to health even though you said it was impossible"
       "You were persistent, and I couldn’t say no; you wouldn’t accept a no to someone or something that needs help"
       "But we managed to fix the wing didn’t we Shadow?“
       "Mm hm; you had such a wide smile when the butterfly started flying”

    Chaos above, Shadow hadn’t realized how much he missed hearing the ivory male’s voice saying his name until this moment. He couldn’t help but smile.

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   "And when I made you breakfast, you always liked your coffee with only two tablespoons of sugar and creamer" Silver continued on.
       "And you prefer having hot chocolate over coffee"
       "Remember when we were watching that chick flick cause there was nothing else good on tv? You nearly knocked yourself out at how laughably cringy it was"

    This time Shadow’s grin widened “Who wouldn’t laugh at that line? ‘You… complete me’ it was over the top in my opinion”

    And he heard more light, soft chuckling on Silver’s line. Hearing the snow-furred hedgehog speak after so long was making the dark hedgehog happier.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~

   They continued to talk about the memories, with Shadow recalling all the happy moments he had spent with Silver, recalling how happy they both where when they were living together. Everything was simply perfect, like straight out of a fairy-tale perfect.

   The two males traveled further down memory lane, both are now very much awake but still kept their voices low as not to wake their respective partners.

    “There was also that one time in the beach, it was a small summer blowout, but everyone was happy and enjoying themselves” There was a melancholic tone in Silver’s voice as he spoke “Everyone had fallen asleep, but, because of my stupid thoughts and self-doubt and insecurities, it was keeping me awake and couldn’t sleep at all… remember that?”

   This time it was Shadow with a sad smile “Yeah, I remember that clearly. You were crying a lot that time”

       "And you stayed by my side even though you clearly needed to sleep and get up early for work the next day"
           "I was rubbing your back to calm you down…“
           "And I got your shoulders wet cause of the tears falling from my face”

   There was a short pause “I thumbed away tears from your face and stared into your eyes. You were simply mesmerizing underneath the moonlight”
       "Then…“ pink dusted the pale hedgehog’s face as he continued "You kissed me passionately, and held me tightly, promising me the world.”
       "Then you were finally able to sleep peacefully"


   A longer pause was held between the calls “Y-yeah.. I was, wasn’t I? It was all thanks to you. You were always there when I needed you the most”

   Listening to their conversation, Shadow couldn’t help but think to himself ’What went wrong? When did it go wrong? How did it come to this? Why did he leave? What did I do to him? Did I lack in anything? Was there something I had done to make him leave? Did I unconsciously push away? Was I at fault?’

   
He could feel the tears building up.

♫~It’s funny that you’re calling me tonight
And, yes, I’ve dreamt of you too~

The dark hedgehog took a deep breath, willing the tears away. He could feel a warmth enveloping his heart, the more he spoke to the ivory hedgehog, the longer he listened to his soft voice.

Chaos, he missed it, missed him so much…

   

Shadow’s voice quivered as he spoke “It’s funny that you decided to call me on this particular night” he tried to lighten the mood and hide from Silver the fact that his heart was breaking and swelling at the same time.

   "Is it really?“

       "It’s… It’s just been 5 years since you’ve made any contact with me, or any of us”

       "… sorry"

       "It’s alright. I dreamt of you recently actually"

       "Y-you have?“

       "mmhmm..”

   There was a short silence on Silver’s end.

   "What.. did you dream about?“

       "You leaving me”

       "…. oh…“

       "You must’ve had your reasons why you left”

       "…“

   The ebony male bit his lip. What he said must’ve upset the other even further. Commanding his voice to calm down, he decided that it’s important to cheer Silver up, given how the younger male went out of his way to call him. The silence that hovered between them was thick and enough to choke air out of a man. The last thing he wants to do now was upset his former lover.

  But what the ivory hedgehog said next was the last thing Shadow had expected to hear from him.

   "By the way, how’s life with Sonic? Looking back, it’s sort of funny how you and him are together because you really didn’t like him; Don’t get the wrong idea tho! I’m really happy you two are happy with one another, honestly!” Silver quietly explained, wishing that Shadow doesn’t think otherwise.

   After all, it was him that left, it was him that ruined their happy relationship by leaving. He didn’t have the right to get mad or jealous of who is now taking his place beside Shadow’s bed.

   Shadow took a breath before answering “He made my life better, and he’s been there for me since” he replied. However, his thoughts were slowly becoming a mess as his more honest feelings were coming out.

   

'He helped me when I was at my darkest moment in my life after you left. He was there when I was was lost, guiding me back into reality. He found me, and never left. He stayed by my side after you left me alone, hurt, heartbroken, confused, lost, angry, betrayed. He made me feel what it’s like to love someone after spending so long in desperation and desolation. You ruined me, but he brought me together again’


   The dark male could feel his blood boiling as he remembered the pain he endured when Silver left him without a word.

♫~And does he know you’re talking to me
Will it start a fight?
No I don’t think she has a clue~

   "Shadow? Shadow? Did you fall asleep?“ The younger hedgehog spoke, bringing Shadow out of his thoughts. It was only now that he realized how tightly he was grabbing the sheets beneath him. Clearing his throat, Shadow did his best to calm his raging emotions. He had gotten over that; he’s supposed to have gotten over that.

   "I’m awake; I saw Sonic move” A lie “Anyway; How are you and.. Mephiles? Does he know you’re calling me? He might get mad”

   This made Silver look over his shoulder and see his sleeping lover oh so lovingly spooning him. Smiling softly, he put his hand over the other’s and intertwined their fingers.

   "He won’t. He was actually the one who insisted that I’d call you"

♫~Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you~

    ’He did what?’

Crimson eyes widened, and the only words he could think of was “Why?”

   Shadow heard Silver take a deep breath “He said I needed it. For closure” A sigh escape from the other’s lips “I guess I really do need the closure; it’s been so long, and I want to tell you everything, but it’ll take me forever to explain. B-But I want to say that, after disappearing for five years, I hope you can still find it in your heart to forgive me”

♫~I guess we never really moved on~


   

The younger male then squeezed his lover’s hand in his, his thumb gently caressing the engagement rings.

   "I had to find myself, Shadow, find myself for who I am and what I can do. And while I was searching… I found him. And he helped me find myself Shadow. I never left you out of hate; I left because I thought it would be for the best"

   When Silver didn’t hear a reply from Shadow, he continued.

   "I found it funny tho; I never thought that I’d fall in love with someone who looked like you. I guess, in a way, I’m never over you" He let out a bitter chuckle.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

 

   "I missed you a lot Shadow; I really do.“ The ivory hedgehog added "I missed talking to you, I missed hearing your voice, so much. Looking back, sometimes I imagine how our lives would be if I… if I hadn’t been stupid. We were happy.”

'We WERE happy’

Shadow mentally repeated, ruby eyes wandering to the sleeping form of his partner. Then, his eyes ventured to the necklace dangling from Sonic’s neck, the main piece being the ring he bought. His heart broke into two.

'That ring was supposed to be for Silver as a surprise; it was a ring he always looked at whenever we passed by the jewelry store, so I began working extra hours to earn enough money for it. I wanted to surprise him, I got promoted as well. The day I finally bought it to propose to him, I come home only to find that Silver was gone.’

The dark hedgehog felt a lone tear down his cheek

'Now, Sonic wears it around his neck; a promise that he’ll never leave my side’

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   

Blinking away the tear, Shadow finally replied “If you’re wondering, yes I forgive you. Maybe it was for the best that this happened.” he said “I’m not saying that I’m glad you left; maybe that incident can be a lesson for the both of us”

   He heard Silver hum “Y-yeah… maybe it is. And thank you Shadow. For forgiving me. Honestly, I was expecting you’d drop the call the moment you found out it was me” he younger one admitted.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~


   

A part of his heart was still yearning for Silver, wanting to hold his precious ivory snowflake in his arms, to have him sleep by his side and to wake up to his bright smile. Another part however, is completely filled with his love for Sonic, and the wish to never hurt the azure hedgehog, just like how Silver hurt him. Then, a thought came to mind.

   "May I ask actually" Shadow began “Why did you call me suddenly? And closure for what?”

   Silver hesitated.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

   Silver glanced at his lover once more, as if he trying to gather the courage to tell Shadow. He squeezed Mephiles’ hand tighter

   "I called because… Mephiles and I are getting married in a few weeks.“

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   

Hearing those words, Shadow felt his knees go weak.

They were engaged? Getting married?? All these years of silence and he calls to tell him he was getting married to someone else??

   

The crimson-streaked male felt a lump form in his throat, his mind blank. How would anyone react to that?? Your former lover leaves you behind for whatever reason, have not contacted for five years, suddenly calls one night only to say they’re getting married!

   Shadow felt his heart break even more at the thought of Silver getting married to someone else; his precious ivory whom he’s made so many promises and dreams with. Then, he felt another part of his heart form, saying that Silver belongs to him and no one else.

   As if sensing his distress, Silver gratefully spoke "It’s a shock, I know, I honestly… I couldn’t… Mephiles said that I really needed to talk to you for closure.” His voice began to quiver again “These past few weeks after he proposed, I couldn’t sleep well; the guilt was beginning to eat me alive. I remember all the promises we’ve made, and m-my thoughts were getting the best of me again after fighting against them so hard in the p-past years and…” He had to stop; the tears were threatening to come out and he was sure that if he continued to speak, he would end up sobbing again.

   He loves Mephiles with all his heart, no doubt there. He wouldn’t trade Mephiles for the world, since he helped him grow stronger. Shadow may have held his heart, but Mephiles was the one who fixed it.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~

   

And what Shadow said next made Silver tear up even more, and break his heart.

   "Shhh, calm down Silver, please. I don’t ever want to hear you upset.“ Oh Chaos even now Shadow was the one calming him down, even now he’s still the stronger of one of them, and even now, his concern for his well-being is heartfelt, just like old times.

   That was one of the things that Mephiles lacks; yes, he comforts him but for Silver, sometimes it was never enough. He missed the way Shadow was overly concerned for him. His fiance is not as romantically expressive as his previous lover, and in a way that was good, because he realized that he had become dependent to constant praising and assurance.

   Still, it didn’t mean that he longs for it from time to time.

   "No more tears, okay Snowflake?” The dark hedgehog whispered softly, using the pet name he gave the other all those years ago. And funny; he could almost see Silver in front of him, and, out of habit, reached out a hand to try and wipe the tears on the ivory male’s face, only to stop and realize that Silver wasn’t actually there.

   Shadow heard Silver take deep breaths, calming himself down.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful~

    “I’m still as useless as ever after all this years” Silver joked, his voice still quivering but he has a better hold of himself now. “Thanks Shadow” He let out a breath “B-but yeah.. I really needed to get the weight off of my chest. Mephy was right; I really needed closure. I just wish I’d done it sooner than well… now. I called at a terrible time”
       "It’s alright" Shadow had to tell himself over and over that it didn’t hurt him one bit when he heard the nickname Silver gave his current lover.

   And he’s gonna regret asking this, but he was curious “What ring did he give you?”

   Now it was Silver’s turn to be confused, but he answered nonetheless “He bought me the ring I’ve always wanted; I don’t know how he knew that I really like the silver one with the turquoise finish since I never said anything. He just said that it suits me and complements my eyes”

   'So it’s the exact ring I bought for you…’

   
He knew he was gonna regret it. Oh how his heart was breaking even further, and he was starting to become possessive of the ivory hedgehog once more but he stopped himself. No, he shouldn’t be selfish; Silver deserves to be happy, even if it meant that he was no longer the reason the other was happy. Even if he was no longer the one making him happy. What they had in the past was part of the past; Silver has Mephiles, and he has Sonic. That is the present. That is the reality they are facing with right now.

   He has to truly and finally let go.

   "I remember you always looked at it when we passed by the jewelry shop. And your fiance is right; it does suit you. I’m happy you found someone who’ll make you happy for the rest of your life Silver, and who you’ll make happy" Shadow managed to smile softly. He meant what he said, every word.

♫~With the lips of an angel~

   

Ruby eyes darted to the digital clock by the bedside table, surprising him.

It’s already 3:20 in the morning?

   

“Oh wow” He uttered

       "Why?“

       "It’s past 3 am in the morning”

       "Really? Wow.. We’ve been talking for over three hours"

       "It would seem so"

   They both shared a moment of silence.

   "I’m sorry for keeping you up this late" The ivory male was the first to break the silence.

       "It’s fine; it was good hearing from you again"

       "And it’s good talking to you again. I feel like something heavy finally lifted from my chest. Thanks for listening to me Shadow"

   Shadow felt his heart grow warm, and hummed as a reply.

   "Oh and Shadow?“ Silver suddenly added.

       "Yes?”

   Silver cuddled closer to Mephiles, who’s embrace tightened around his waist “You and Sonic are welcome to the wedding. I’ll send you an invitation, if you want to go, that is. I’m planning on sending everyone invitations actually” he yawned. He hadn’t realized just how tired he was.

   "Of course we’d go. Although, you better prepare yourself for the barrage of questions they’re gonna ask" The ebony male chuckled softly in the end

.
       

“Y-yeah. I’m still actually mentally and emotionally preparing myself for that, if they ever want to attend at least”

      “Trust me. They would all attend. They miss you a lot, and are very worried about you”

   This time Shadow had decided to finally lay down beside Sonic, his free arm wrapping around his lover’s torso and his head sinking into the pillows.

   "Does this mean that you’ll contact us more often now Silver?“

       ”… yeah actually. I’d love to hang out with everybody again, just like old times.“

       "Silver, I just need to ask you; are you truly happy with Mephiles? You don’t have any regrets?” Shadow suddenly added. He wanted to make sure that Silver really was happy with his decision

   "Yes Shadow; I am truly happy and I am truly in love with Mephiles. What about you?“ Silver returned the question. And Shadow immediately answered.

       "I am very happy with my life with Sonic, and I wouldn’t trade him for the world.”

   Another yawn, although it was uncertain whose line it came from. Both were tired but both didn’t want the call to end, but they knew they had to end it, no matter how bittersweet they both felt. They had their own lives to live now, after all.

   "Well, thanks again Shadow. For everything. See you at the wedding?“

   Shadow nodded on his end "We’ll see you on your wedding day. Goodnight Silver”

       "Goodnight Shadow"

   And Silver was the first to drop the call.

  The ebony hedgehog sighed, placing the phone back beneath his pillow. He held Sonic close, taking in his scent. His heart was filled with so many emotions right now, and he had to sort them out once he wakes up from his sleep. Shadow buried his face in Sonic’s soft quills. Eyes closing, he finally joined his lover in slumber.

♫~Honey why you calling me so late?~

Dear person who I’m going to fall in love with one day,

I haven’t written to you in a while. How are you? I am thinking of you often, especially right now.

I have moved, my love. I have moved to the city of my birth, to our largest city. I wonder if you walk along these volcanic paths? Do you see the crowds like I do?

I have moved from a city of 40,000 people to one of 1.3 million - so forgive me if I seem a little overwhelmed. Yes, this is the city named on my birth certificate but I have not lived here since I was eight years old - and now I’m 22.

Will you laugh at this small-city girl? Put your arm around me and tell me I’m safe when my anxiety rears its ugly head?

Oh, my love, will you hold my hand as we walk down the street and tell me of your tales? Will you laugh as you tell me your stories, your secrets, all the things that make you who I’ll fall in love with?

Then will you come with me? Will you let me lead you down a trip down memory lane? Let me pull out some photos, some journals, curl up on a couch with you and let’s talk. 

I’ll tell you that although I love looking at the sea, I yearn for ranges and rivers. I’ll tell you that although I am slowly learning to love our city, I ache thinking of a simple town. I’ll tell you that although I love the fact that summer lasts all through April here, I wish for cold nights like home.

What will you tell me that night? Will you tell me of what you wish for? 

I am curious. Over half of the population of this city is foreign-born - do you have an accent? Do you come from a different culture? Will you tell me of the history, of the traditions of your family?

I lie in my bed alone at night and I think of you.

I know I’m not ready to be what you need yet. And you may not be ready for me. But when I am, I’ll be yours completely. 

I’ll love you with all I have, and I’ll be the best person I can for you.

I’ve lost count of these letters now, and yet, I am still asking the same question - will you love me?

Love,
The girl who will be yours one day.

Blank Space Parody

Hello, Jessica here! This is the first parody post for our blog! The song rhythm is Blank Space by Taylor Swift. I switched the lyrics to something I made and the song now has a voltage meaning ;). I hope you like my lyrics :)

Song rhythm: “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift 

Nice to meet you all you guys 
You can show me incredible things, 
Mobsters, castles, magic, lies 
Saw your faces and thought oh my god, 
 Who do I choose? It could be you, you or you! 
Love’s a game, I’m gonna play. 

New money, suit, and tie, 
You can sell me at a black market. 
Wait a second, I have no eyes 
Makes no sense ‘cause I always cry. 
So hey, I’m moving in, 
Even if I’m your step sis or friend. 
Get your heart, in my hands 
I can make princes common for a weekend 

So it’s gonna be forever, 
Because my house went down in flames. 
You can let me come over, In the demon house so I won’t be toast 
Gotta love all them ex lovers, 
Their love isn’t hard to explain 
But I still love the players, 
And I have no shame! 

Because we were young and lovers, 
You’ll still love me from afar. 
I’ll see you in ten years, 
With everyone at a coffee bar. 
You still see me as a lover 
And we’ll go down memory lane 
Because I’ve had a blank space baby, 
So please write your name. 

Gramps paintings, 
Thieving guys. 
You can show me incredible things. 
Stealing dresses, saving lives 
Or you be king and I’ll be your queen 
And I’ll still bake, tasty croissants 
Or I’ll be your girl for three months 
And the best is yet to come, 
Oh oh
Kissing, hugging, perfect dates 
I’ll teach you how to cook watch and learn 
More love, to be born 
Yet keep you busy and oh my god, 
Soon you’ll see! I get drunk in everything. 
I’ll be passed out cause I’m too naive, 
And you’ll bring me home while I’m stuck in a daydream. 

So it’s gonna be forever, 
I don’t care about your fame. 
Or help me find a four leaf clover 
And see it was worth the grass stains. 
There’s still so much to discover, 
And criminals to restrain. 
We’ll see who’s the liar, 
And they’ll be ashamed! 

I’m sure you’ll soon get jealous, 
Of the random guy at the bar. 
You’ll see I’m as precious, 
As a shining star. 
I don’t care if you’re my step brother, 
Or if people call me insane. 
Because I’ve got a blank space baby, 
So please write your name

Girls only want love if it’s voltage, 
Don’t say that I, say I didn’t warn you. 
Girls only want love if it’s voltage, 
Don’t say that I say I didn’t warn you! 

So it’s gonna be forever, 
Our cakes will never be lame. 
You’ll teach me how to make icing bolder. 
And stay together ‘til we both have canes. 
We’ll always be lovers, 
Drive each other insane. 
Or we might be neighbors, 
Or have royalty in your veins! 

Because I’m strong yet reckless, 
I’ll try to trust everybody, 
I don’t care if you’re a demon, 
A thief, mobster, or a millionaire. 
I want you as a lover, 
Even though you’re part of a game.
But I’ve got a blank space baby, 
So please write your name.

The Poems of Candy Eep

We were so close in our past lives
That folk mistook us for one person.
We were Sapphic brides, mirrored,
Twinned, echoed. We rode bicycles
Down summer lanes, scents of pollen
Teasing our twitching noses. Rose and
Reflex: I have been waiting for you
For decades. Now we are reunited,
What else is there to do but be girls?

lordsparky  asked:

Alex/Lucy bonding (and more?) over drinks about being second best to the super cousins.

“I love Kara,” Alex says, pausing to sip from her glass of wine. “I do. It’s just…”

“Hard to get out of Super Sister’s shadow?”

“Yes! Exactly.”

“Trust me, I get it.” And Lucy does. Really. Which may be how they ended up sticking around in this bar after Kara had to abruptly abandon the “girls’ night” she insisted on having. “My sister is Lucy Lane, and she’s dating Superman. As if I’m ever going to live up to that.”

“You could always date Supergirl. She does think you’re pretty.” Alex snorts into her glass and Lucy laughs.

“Yeah, my dad would love that. He’d rather I date you, and he does not like you.”

“I’m pretty sure he doesn’t like anyone, so you might as well go for it,” Alex mutters before downing the last of her drink.

Lucy rests her elbows on the table between then, leaning her chin on her hands and eyeing the woman opposite her. “And what about you?”

“What about me?”

“Do you think I’m pretty? Because that sounded like a slightly inebriated way of asking me out.”

Alex frowns. “I have both had too much and not enough wine to answer that question.”

“That sounds like a yes, Agent Danvers.”

“It’s… not a no.”

Lucy’s grin is alarmingly cat-like.

“Well, then. You can call me when you’re a little more sober.”

“To spend more time ranting about overly ambitious siblings over alcohol?” Alex laughs.

“Got anything better to do on a Friday night?”

“Okay, so a little back story, I live in a rural area outside of Plant City, Florida and I always take back roads because the main road takes longer. The way I drive does not have any street lights for most of the drive and its always really dark.

I was driving home from work one night and it was 11pm, I think. I just remember it was really late, and I swear I thought a small child ran across the road with a dog. Scared the hell out of me and I swerved to miss it only to nearly crash head first into a car that was on the other side. I got back in my own lane and pulled off the side of the road and looked back in my mirror. The little girl seemed to be standing there smiling and just disappeared after I looked away.

I have seen many things on the drive down that road super late, but that girl was the one I remember most because it nearly killed me.

Another thing is, since I first moved in where I’m living now, there has been a shadow man that roams the back bedroom. I have lived in this house on and off for the last ten years and I always see him when I’m in the bathroom doing my hair or brushing my teeth. My kids see him all the time and unfortunately they now share a room in that room because its the biggest. 

The one time that really stands out is when I was home alone getting ready for work, my oldest was at school and I was still with his dad who was at school in another state, and I looked up because I felt something was watching me. He was standing in the bedroom and he was all black with like a detectives hat on. It was a quick glance so I thought really nothing of it until I looked up again and he was closer to the entry door. I spun around and it was gone. I stopped leaving the doors open when I’m home alone after that. About gave me a heart attack.

People may think I’m crazy, but my son’s step-mom has seen the shadowman and the figures on the back road I take, and I know a few others who have too so it can’t just be me.”
