Tom ran to a galaxy far from here

“Somewhere the people care”

He said to the train.

So the driver gave him a book

“This place has monsters too, look,

Watch the people

Watch

Who they aren’t in public

Who they are in private

How they love each other

and hurt each other

~ Bailey Bear, Duckling Dea and the Woodsmen

by ladyliterati

~ Bailey Bear, Duckling Dea and the Woodsmen

They gathered beneath the old oak tree
Bailey Bear and a duckling named Dea
Friends they’d been since left alone
When woodsmen took their mommies home
The sun shone bright as they planned their day
But breakfast was needed before they could play
Bailey searching for a honey hive
Dea beneath the waters where insects hide

war

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

She was all of five years then
An age that should be spent
Begging her mother for stories
Or for the moon on a string
To tie up like a toy balloon
But all she asked over and over
Was if Daddy would be home soon

war is what happens when language fails

whiskey in a teacup

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

He met her at a bookstore
Lost in millions of books and
Tangled in a thousand lives
She wore ugly red glasses
With mismatched old shoes
She seemed at first glance
To be just another lost girl
She was a thin golden slice

Twilight Embrace

by graypoet

Ever have a thought that started as one thing and seemed to have a mind of its own? Is it a story or a poem? I’m not sure, but it is all fiction…

She stood before me that cold dark night
Soaking wet, glistening eyes full of fright
I opened the door and asked her to come in
Not knowing the journey that would begin.

Torrents of rain had been blowing for an hour
Most people around under a blanket did cower
She had taken a wrong turn on roads unknown
And found the house where my light had shone.

Her eyes were trying to hold back the tears
I wondered how to comfort and allay her fears
I offered a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa
There was more going on as I would soon know.

Shattered

by The Blue Madame

For hours the Fairy Queen lay fighting for life.
Time pasted from day then back to night.
Finally she let out a sigh and slowly opened her eyes.
She sensed the wolf laying beside her.
She felt his chest heave and
knew with out moving he was angry.
She tried to turn and felt her body burn.
Pain rippled through her.
Next to her the wolf lifted his head and whimpered.
She tried to recall what had caused
her to fall for she didn’t remember her attacker at all.

Broken

by The Blue Madame

Shimmering wings lay broken and shattered.
Glittering shards across the forest lay scattered.
Through the trees the wind blows.
From the dark the wolves howl.
Fairy dust trails like blood.
It’s liquid silver seeps into the ground.
Moonlight revels the murderous scene.
In a pool of light lays the Fairy Queen.
Naked and torn her life force nearly gone.
Golden gashes mark her form.
