in the graveyard with the fiddle

i have plumbed the depths and extracted nothing
from the scattered fragments of my blighted soul

thoughts have limits
on these bleak pages … of
black and white signs … yet

i write
of Madness … oncoming with
the gravitas of unkempt demons
living in the bowels of the Vatican

i write
of dark things
filling pages with
salt and sulphuric acid

waiting for the wind to carry them off
to some unrevealed worn down cloud

and a jukebox
dances inside
with crazy hips
ticking like a clock …
when morning charges into me

and i brusquely walk out of my dream
changing my flesh for another day of

saturated anxiety
rambling beneath
the texture
on the surface of
daylight saving time

and everyday is a handshake
with some irascible demon and
everything i write is edited in the
underground of indigo botanicals …

but tomorrow the warlords
will come to claim my poetry
and i’ll be hiding on the moon
fighting ghosts with my illusions …

while my other body
will sit in a graveyard
learning to play the devil’s fiddle
where i’m at the mercy of no one …

Queen Jealousy, not Consolidated, (no pun intended...)

 Mr Queen :

2x8 :  Who’s this kid whom hits on my Felicity in front of me ? 

2X10 :  Oliver in a way : I don’t care about Felicity’s absence and I keep my selfcontrol when I learn she’s still at Barry’s side, look at my poker face...

3X5:  Oliver is so jealous that he becomes irascible

3X7 :  His disappointement is so obvious, he can’t hide anything about his jealousy for Ray and even after watching this episode again and again,  for me seeing his puppy face is still a master piece. 

He seems to walk toward his death penalty and at the end he sees the executioner : Ray Palmer ! 

Of course you’re fine Oliver. Everything is going to be ok, keep calm, and take a deep breathe.

And the icing on the cake of the 3x7 : the worst synchronisation which is possible to exist and an Oliver heartbreaking

I’m still hiding my eyes like I’m watching a horror movie and saying NO, NO, NO, please, NOOOOO

3X16 : I’m sorry not ot have the sound to hear the modulation in Oliver’s voice : EPIC ! and if Oliver’s eyes were a weapon, Ray would have been  killed instantaneously

“Nice to see you again Mr Palmer“ “And please, call me Ray” “ Ok, Ray” : MOUAAAAAAHHH !!!! Tremendous

I know the list is so long, but as long as was Oliver’s pain during the S3 not to have his Felicity, because of his stupid choice.

Mrs Queen :

2X6 : this is more disappointement than jealousy, Oliver is really a stupid guy sometimes and Felicity is hurt.

2X9 Felicity seems exasperate by the Oliver’s secrets

I just say, only 2 times for Felicity and I don’t talk about 2x14 with Sara because Felicity deeply admires Sara and even there is a little bit of jealousy, Felicity is a good girl, she loves Sara without any hate.

Oliver, 8 times and I’m sure I forgot some times, Oliver is really, really a jealous guy and I love this SO MUCH !!

I want to see more Oliver jealous in S4 because this is so funny AND HOT.

anonymous asked:

There's this Gemini guy we hang out sometimes due to our mutual friend. He has found that I am really irascible and there are some things that I am really sensitive and opinionated and serious about(ex. politics) and he goes against me about those stuff and anything in general all the time! I try to talk to him and connect somehow, you know make a decent conversation. And he always teases me! And I somehow respond the same.But I feel weird, like I have to play a game.Why's that? :/ I'm concerned

Because he’s a fkn Gemini and to them life is just one big game.

The Likes of Us

     For God’s sake Alistair, get your bloody act together –

     Brow furrowed, the tension creeping up in the strained area between his eyes, former chief inspector of Her Majesty’s secret service Alistair Martland struggled to get a grip on himself as he sat in his now-unnecessary BMW 7 Series stationed outside a London remedial centre. He exhaled forcefully and then straightened up in his seat, thumbs drumming distractedly at the alcantara steering wheel as he glanced up at the building and who would be waiting for him inside.

     It wasn’t like him to be so anxious – blue eyes flicked to the empty seat beside him, an unpleasant reminder that Maurice was no longer at his side for the time being – but something seemed to be holding his normally sedulous attitude at bay…and he didn’t like it. This only compounded his chronic irascibility further and he sighed as if to let out steam, loosened his necktie and reached for the door handle. The sooner he got this over with, the sooner he could get back to work. Yes, tomorrow morning the Director General will get his clean bill of health and he’ll hard pressed not to reinstate me as chief…

     A tiny smile drew at one corner of his mouth as he pulled open the front door to the office, assuring himself everything was just a misunderstanding, and greeted the admitting secretary with renewed warmth – and a dash of egotism.

     “Alistair Martland– here for Doctor Hadley. Please.


by David Isle

Modern dandies idolize the tailor as the “doctor to the soul,” the sage maestro who can create gentlemen out of cloth and canvas. But this is perhaps an example of romanticizing an endangered species, the same way the irascible and coarse panda bear appears in the public consciousness as a lovable, downy playmate.

Inhuman of The Day

July 19th - Kristen 

A young man who lived in Norway during the time that the Terrigen Cloud passed over the upper eastern section of the Atlantic ocean.  A bored, irascible and somewhat chauvinistic young man, Kristen felt that he was destined for great things in his life, that he sensed a change on the horizon.  His feelings provide prophetic, but perhaps not in the specific fashion in which he imagined.
Kristen possessed the Inhuman gene and exposure to the Terragin Cloud caused him to be transform and become encased in a Terrigenetic Cocoon.  

This cocoon was quickly absconded by the renegade Inhuman, Lash, who was looking for new Inhuman recruits for his cause.  Lash viewed the surge in NuHumans to be heretical and an abomination.  In his mind, only the worthy, the best of the best, should be allowed the privilege of Terrigenesis; and those whom he deemed unworthy needed to be eradicated.  

When a transformed Kristen emerged from the cocoon, he appeared weak and enfeebled.  His good looks were replaced by a purple, goblin-like form.  It is unknown what specific Inhuman gifts the youth had been endowed with.  Lash was disgusted by the NuHuman’s initial sense of being weak and unworthy.  Placing his hand on a confused Kristen’s forehead, Lash released an energy blast and vaporized him into dust.

Locket & Dust

Locket Take a selfie.

I’m sorry, but I won’t upload selfies here. That’s why I crossed that one out. 

Dust ❧ Talk about your past.

I’m in my twenties, I don’t think there’s a lot to tell about my past. I had a rough adolescence, I was very irascible and my attitude and behaviour gave me a lot of trouble. At that age I started writing to “cleanse” myself in some way, and some friends, relatives and even professors encouraged me to keep doing it; then I had the guts to take part in writing competitions and I won a few prizes. I realized I was good at it and that writing was part of my life, so I decided to be a writer; at first I wanted to be a war correspondent, but when I started college I changed my mind (because journalism in the country I’m living in is awful) and switched to cinema school. I always wanted to study cinema, but most people told me that it was more of a “hobby” than a real career. At some point I stood my ground and decided to be a scriptwriter, so I could combine both writing and cinema.

Thanks for asking! (and sorry for my English, it’s really far from perfect).

A practised pickpocket can be still be flawed
as can a heist maestro can conduct his manifesto
at the wrong time. However, to conclude that a
thief can steal from another is somewhat an
epiphany of irony wasn’t it ? Even as the trench-
donned adolescent kept his insight upon the
fluorescent lighting of his phone, the sudden
dipping weight of a pickpocket’s hand in his
pocket had triggered the Bandit to clasp gaudy
pigments around the girl’s wrist.
But within the resting measure,
he had merely tug her into a
fair pose with his hand now
sincere to her own, her hand
caressed over his own as his other hand
kept her suffused in a sort of dipping stance a
baltering duo would pronounce. Russet oculars
penetrating to the brink of irascibility as he aligned
his shoulders to narrow out & a leering smirk
sufficing to his contours. 

❛ Stealing from a THIEF ? ❜    

he queries, his voice dripping with ebullience
of how he took arrogance to his position in the game.

❛ …now isn’t that a story ?
