The Worst
When you talk I do not hear it
I'm all hearts and so I fear it
won't be long that I'm discovered
as someone whose half a lover.
And though with many days I'm cursed,
I don't get better for I'm the worst.
All your tears are an invention
of a fraud and by extension
what I feel is not quite real
but I lay down and I will kneel ...
Through all the pain I am well versed
in being droll, for I'm the worst.
And I'm the best, and I'm the last;
I am spell and you're the cast.
Say the words, that incantation
into the depths of some damnation.
Still I could never quench your thirst,
just my own, for I'm the worst.

Now and Then and Never
The real world to me is now new
and so I cannot sleep,
all the things I have to do
but still I cannot keep
the dreams that I have kept in lieu
for I was in too deep.
The night is calm, the room is still,
but there is yet a sound,
and I don't know how long until
the listlessness is crowned
with heartbeat wailing, crying shrill
because the hurt is found.
It does not hurt now like it should,
perhaps it might not ever;
it simply pains me how it would,
now and then and never,
but if it hurt me like it could
then I lament forever.

You, who are a child, I let go.
How you have not grown,
caused me pain,
stayed in the same place,
looked to the wrong way.
Where are you now?
Is it where you want to be?
How could you let this happen?
How could it all go by ...
Let go and I will no longer hold you.
The time for tears is done.
You, I say to my self of minutes ago, who are a child ...
I let you go.
:iconaudley:Audley 2 3
All There Is Now
Now I'm going you can have the words,
have your say while something stirs ...
I don't need from you, nor will I sway
from letting you have your last say.
Though I've failed, I can face it,
all your coldness ... I can take it.
All your anger, and all your blame,
I can take it all the same.
Now things have passed and there's no confusion
as I have escaped from this delusion.
Don't look for me - I can't look for you.
There is all there is now.
:iconaudley:Audley 2 1
Take it away
give nothing back
turn it around
change all the facts
Lie in your bed
wish you were dead
say some things aloud
leave others unsaid
What do you keep
inside of your heart?
Relive the end
or replay the start?
Why do you think
that it could be easy?
What do you do
and how does it please me?
All that it does ...
all of it frees me.
I want to get out
but no one believes me.
:iconaudley:Audley 0 0
The Longest Breath
Am I your favourite?
Have you forgot me?
When I'm myself
or when I am not me
you are the same
when you have lost me;
I am the same
and you're what it cost me.
When you wake up
all will be changed-
just for a moment
and then it is same.
Just for a moment
you can pretend
that things won't go back
and won't start again.
:iconaudley:Audley 2 1
Half of the Else
Look far away to the night and the day,
to morning and evening, ho'ing and heaving
one after another, sister and brother,
enemy and lover, child and mother.
What is born must have an end,
what is real becomes pretend;
what it was and what it could be,
what it is and what it should be.
Fall in the night into darker sights:
crying, relieving, accepting, believing.
Half of one, half of the else,
all of you and none of myself.
:iconaudley:Audley 2 0
why it always feels this empty
when the scars inside can tempt me
what has hurt I barely feel
covered over, but not healed
lust for blood and forward breaking
underhand and overtaking
in her side and out her aching
heart asleep and never waking
whenever pain, here ever words;
whatever same ill will conferred
unto the quiet lover spurned
sometimes heal, but always burned.

Title a little misleading as PeriodicFable is only a little new to dA and likely not to writing, but they were the winner of Haiku Contest #2: Something New and thus the correlation. Here is the winning entry:

I opened my eyes
marking my life's beginning
you're now beautiful

Part of gaining enjoyment from reading haiku - or anything, really - is putting yourself in the place of whoever wrote it. What they are thinking or feeling or their intent is not always clear, even when it appears to be spelled out as plain as day. This particular haiku reads like someone awaking from a darker past and seeing value in themselves which they might not have before. It could also come from the thoughts of a second iteration android who finally has sentience and the ability to recognise beauty. Anything goes.

Evening of felines    The spray can felt cumbersome in my hand. Jeff, in his plaintative manner, was spraying carefully behind me, not at all ruffled by the potential consequences of what we were doing. Everything felt so much more suspect in the dark of the night.
    "Could you maybe please spray a bit quieter?" I whispered to him over my shoulder.
    "Would you just relax? Keep watch, it'll be fine. Besides, I already told this was commissioned." Jeff whispered back, clicking his tongue in slight annoyance. He had long since mastered the ability to speak through his particulate mask clearly.
    "If this is all fine and legal then why do I need to 'stand watch'?" I felt my goosebumps grow into what might as well be splinters of cold, splintered skin. Of all the nights, the five degree night Jeff picks. Sometimes, I can only trust that my friend and small business counterpart is doing the right thing.
    He doesn't really disappoint though. We've bee
light my way
when nothing is clear
the stoic
and austere
dark too present.
swarm in twitching clouds
of unseen childhood
a sweetness
out of this world.
with the music
that lights our souls
be real
you bright
flying butt.
Of the unisex corsetLaces and laces
tie you into strung out knots
Tearing out your teeth
That wind around
the foot's clothings' long tongue
Straddling you in
For a bumpy ride
'round your taut and haunting past
Stretched and holding
You back from pleasure
the strings that lace you within
Never asking why
Lest the pop seam thinks
that the strings aren't tight enough
For your restraints.

I wanted to feature some other pieces written by PeriodicFable and I really recommend visiting their gallery - a lot of different styles and types of poetry as well as a good collection of short stories. You also won't be disappointed if you end up in conversation with the author as they are definitely sugar and spice and all things nice.

No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,  that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.


 (Jesus said this to Nicodemus and the Holy Spirit moved John to record it in his gospel. The reference is John 3:13-21)


Now to give you a bit more insight into what God is saying here, because we know assuredly that what Jesus said that is recorded in the Bible (as well as what His Spirit moved His chosen prophets and apostles to write) are the Words of God. The word for “believe” in the Greek is pisteuō which means “ think to be true, to be persuaded of, to credit, place confidence in.” And we know from James that belief is not mere mental assent. For example, even the demons confessed that Jesus was the Son of God and knew that it was true, but that doesn’t mean they have everlasting life. For “faith without works is dead.” (James 2:14-26) The angels who do have everlasting life are those who “excel in strength” and who “do His Word, heeding the voice of His Word.” (Psalm 103:20) James also said that we, likewise, are to be “doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving ourselves.” (James 1:22) So we cannot stop at just believing that it is true what God said, though it is true, and some people take a while to even come to that conclusion, calling the Bible “a book of myths” or “a book of lies.” But that is not enough to save us, we also must do what God said to do in His Word, “purifying our souls through obeying the truth”, as Peter said in 1 Peter 2:2, or even as Jesus says here, we must be those who “do the truth, that our deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” As for the angels that sinned, Peter points out in 2 Peter 2:4 that “God did not spare them, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment.” This is also the fate of unrepentant sinners, and of those who “turn from the holy commandment delivered to them” (1 Peter 2:21.) So I am just writing these things to you in case you didn’t know them, that you could repent of your sin, and start walking in accordance with God’s Word, because that would be of eternal profit and value to you.


With all the love that is in Christ Jesus, and with full faith and assurance in His Word,

Hi Tiffany. Thanks for your comment.

If you want to talk to me about something like this, you can message me directly. I am inviting you to do so under the proviso you are willing to discuss the topics you've brought up and won't simply proselytise me without hearing a different view.

Hi Audley.

I would like to hear what your views are. :) We could compare them to what God's Word says. That's what I do with my own views too, compare them with what God's Word says and see whether they match or whether they don't.
