By: AutumnMooncakesSeptember 8, 2016

Spyre

By: AutumnMooncakesSeptember 2, 2016

When a sailor’s voyage nears its end

And a ship’s journey is done,

There is a single light they crave

More than the rays of sun.

 

In the distance, upon the shore,

Is a stone that gleams with fire:

It can be seen in day and night,

The grand lighthouse, the Spyre.

By: AutumnMooncakesAugust 21, 2016

It's Okay

By: MuffinsWillRuleTheWorldAugust 18, 2016

It's okay.

those pretty, round words

was the first time I watched

my mother tie a light pink scarf

around her neck

so no one would see

the violet blooming

across her throat.

 

It's okay,

my mother would say.

She said it'd be

better the next day.

 

It's okay.

I don’t play video games, so a good proportion of my video game knowledge comes from fanmade music videos like these.

Warm Felicity

By: WaffleloveAugust 1, 2016

If love is a choice, then I

have happened upon the

most monumentally natural

understanding in this lifetime.

It has become breathing,

a steady beating of the heart

sustaining the color of life

around me.

The stars, brighter.

The skies, clearer.

The music, sweeter in

this new clarity.

It is as if I have not
