"Memories from baptism" by !stupidvagina
The poems and the artwork, likewise, the name
pull no punches. Not for the faint, she tells things like
they are and drills the ink onto the page. It's hard to
look away, but then again, why should you?
What she's showing us needs to be seen.

36. Precious TreasureI am maps of olden worlds burnt
to a crisp and motion-sensing globes
of red-pink that hang above kitchen
chairs and forgotten dinner plates
you're love drunk cocktails reverberating
against the hollowness of my breastbone
and restless nights filled with too many
shiny, golden-white galaxies
I can't help but notice that together
we're like rusty copper latches
locking treasure chests full of
ship-in-a-bottle's and letters
written in Latin on sheets of
"36. Precious Treasure" by ~irpinkrobotx3
The metaphors in this poem are delicate
and beautiful in that wistful way, and it can have
so many different interpretations to it. ~irpinkrobotx3

is always an in-between blend that's just right.

emphasizes the form and flow of
the words. Well worth a look!

Comfort With Vodka And Pills 1 I quickly vomited the mixture of vodka and pills I had taken ten minutes before onto the filth-ridden pavement. From behind, the flat sounds of bass and trance thundered out from the brick walls, as flashes of red, green and blue burst through the gaps of reinforced door. I leant, unsure of myself, on the cold railing with my head hung down with heaviness. Fumbling for the bottle of water in the back pocket of my WKD stained jeans, I wretched once more over the railing, but only adding a little spit to the foul discharge on the pavement. To my dismay I found the bottle empty and I cast it away before slouching over the
"Comfort With Vodka And Pills" by ~Aquitius
~Aquitius carefully constructs this piece
to read both as a romance and as a transgressive piece.
Mixing the cliches of both genres, the piece takes on
an original tone and uses understatement throughout,
allowing the reader to interpret a personal reading
of the piece. A well thought out and constructed piece.

A Fragile Door Between Us
I can hear my man breathe in the next room. He is digesting his daily dose of Jack, and I've taken the opportunity to lock myself into the bedroom. The door won't hold if he sets his mind to opening it, but it still gives me some sense of security. Why, I can't say. I lean myself to it and press my ear against it. I can hear him muttering under his breath, occasionally raising his voice in curses. Then there is a shattering sound, as if something has been thrown across the room. Glass.
It is my job to clean up after him. It has been for nearly three years now. I always try to make myself invisible while I pick up the broke
"A Fragile Door Between Us" by ~celestial-elevator
A horrifying piece that captures readers into shock.
It's the story of a girl and a drunken man, and how
she must live through the pain he forces upon her.
