senses of you.I can taste it in the air,
as it lingers in my lungs.
I can hear it's whisper,
speaking in ancient tongues.
Understanding this is nothing,
something that isn't new.
I've struggled with it daily,
since the last day I saw you.
I see it in my dreams,
in the darkest hour of the night.
I feel it at my finger tips,
washing away each fright.
And somewhere lost in time,
the memory keeper kept it atop.
In the plain view once opened,
the chest that was never locked
But I'll never touch again,
the thing that burned me once before.
I'll never taste the burn,
in my mouth, or deep in my core.
Memories still linger,

Leap of FaithHe's living in a world where
it's wrong to be happy,
where people don't want to hear
about the way he pulls rainbows
from the sky for paint, regards
the world as his easel where
mistakes just add to the beauty.
No, people want to hear the way he

wound too tightly after repetitive
heartbreaks to songs written in Minor,
about the price of every tear he sheds,
each a shard of his stained-glass soul that is
p i e c e s.
But he doesn't want to know the true cost of
pain, because he knows that happiness is
Leap of Faith by ~Wynt-rs

~Wynt-rs creates a beautiful picture of the leap
including what it takes to get there.

Rabbit SkinThe sky was clear blue, cold, fierce and wild as a coyote. On the vast and weather-blasted earth below it was an envoy of men and one boy, brown-faced and all covered in deerskins, riding painted ponies and followed by small wolfish dogs.
The boy squinted into the close, cold sunlight, frowning and pulling his rabbit-skin cap close around his face. His father called him after that hat, as he always wore it, and the boy had longed to shed that name. To be satisfied with a name such as Buckskin or Bearskin would have to wait another season, he had ended his first hunt in failure and Rabbit Skin he would remain.

Mirror ImagesCouples walked hand in hand. Women with other women and men with other men. That was the way of things. They were taught from an early age that reproduction was for survival of the species, so in order to bring forth a new generation science had long ago discovered the art of artificial insemination. Men would donate their sperm, and in the case of a couple of two women one would bear the child; in the case of two men, a close friend would agree to bear his child and share the child's up-bringing with the couple of men.
It was sacred in their society, this way of living. However, there were always the odd ones who would go astray. A boy woul
