There's Blood on the Sheets by ~BlueMeadow193
The strange complexity of this poem stuffs
a puffer fish down the throats of the readers
and beckons them to decipher it's meaning in a

Life in four songs01.
Sitting in the back of the train, life going by so fast, yet so slow. Nothing to see, nothing to talk about.
The same four songs repeated over and over, my head on your shoulder, your head on mine. Almost asleep, we stand up, both at the same time, head back to our seats, closing the glass door, sitting down without touching, in a room of laughter.
Always without words.
We didn't need them.
Laying on my bed, side by side, close enough for our one pair of headphones to reach both of us. Arms barely touching, feet up on the wall. Comfortable and silent, listening to the same four songs, over and over,

A very impressive work.

I could die, you know.
(It's sick how I can sense your presence in a room. It's positively sickening. And once I finally see you, my eyes automatically stick to you, despite how much I don't want to want to. Still, though, it makes more sense than my eyes darting back and forth toward you and away from you, back and forth, unable to restrain myself, looking like the pathetic freak that I am.

"Disorder" by ~lookatyouall
With a beautiful touch of humor,
"Disorder" describes just how dangerous beauty
can be. The tone is perfect, a balance of disgust
and longing, that goes straight to the heart
and rings true.
