    The glowing of the moon, with my cat, following right close behind
    Holding a balloon in my hand, walking this tight rope of life
    But if the light shown as bright on my dark side as it does on these raindrops
    then I might hold the line, yet, its hard finding footholds until the pain stops
    With numb steps, as I become wet, the marks lining good soles strain, pop
    Charging along this train of thought with split shoes and lost hope
    I've long closed the distance to just turn back, its too bad, soft toed
    Shit, even if I tried, I'd probably just trip over the cat, leave his paw broke
    and me falling, then this all coming to an end as a small joke
    but it doesn't, and I keep plodding along through the howling wind
    Thinking to myself... this reminds me of Owl Creek Bridge
    Just how it seems a bit like I'm getting to somewhere
    But I realized the truth along the trip, this is unfair
    No reaching the meadow and breathing fresh lungfuls of air
    Just a sisyphean trek that's left both my feet bleeding, cut close to bare

    week 17


    The nightskys filled with stars, such subtle sparks
    Erasing the dark, aboard my dream as the shuttle starts
    Me & my feline friend, ascend to dreamland to apprehend
    The eater of dreams who sits in wait for us at the end
    Up high we rise past the stars through the sherbet nebula
    & prepare to disembark to find you wherever you are
    The land of make belive, where dreams are made, we landed
    On marshmellow surounded by cotton candy trees enchanted
    This place was magic, centered by a milkshake fountain
    Due north was our distination beyond chocolate mountain
    Me & moggy set course, we headed forth feeling hazey
    & on the horizon marched an fierce army of jelly babies
    Now it made sense, we arrived in the palace of his highness
    Moggy & I made a dash for it, leaping over the high fence
    A close shave indeed, it seemed dreamland was on red alert
    As I find myself holding moggy, wading through custard dessert
    On the air I can hear music, sounding much to my amusement
    Picking up the pace I run still careful of my movement
    The music gets louder, sweet to my ears, a carnival theme
    Bright lights & vast stalls, the ground, vanilla ice cream
    This was heaven it seemed, I could see moggy looking at me
    The one place in dreamland where all stay happy..
    Amoungst the crowd I could see a tall man in red bellowing loud
    Such a magical sound, his voice screaming, dashing & proud
    Then I felt his gaze as he headed this way, I was glad tho
    As the closer he came, the more I became, engulfed in his shadow
    "Hello young sir, im the Ringmaster, how may I be of service"
    Feeling nervous I informed him of my misson from Realitys surface
    "My great godfathers!, then I guess the prophecy is true
    That the Dream Eater is upon us, & that the chosen one is you
    You must scale chocolate mountain, so here take this balloon
    & hold tight as you take flight, up towards our golden moon"
    I held the balloon & moggy firmly as we ascended with haste
    As I embraced the air all around us, bearing a sweet taste
    We soon settled down, the balloon now rendered worthless
    Fulfilling its purpose, the moment it left the ringmasters circus
    Now nothing but a keepsake, to make me feel safe, all was quiet
    A thick mist for miles as I stood before a thin liquorice wire
    I set moggy down, mustering courage one step at a time
    We balanced along the liquorice line as tears fell from the sky
    Hours went by, this was hopeless and there was no way back
    It seems we trusted too much, now caught in the ringmasters trap
    Forever lost, myself, my feline friend & an useless balloon
    Endlessly wondering in Dreamland, in front of the golden moon

    In the Rain


    Throughout the night Jamie would walk
    Alone, scared too ashamed to talk
    Accompanied by a balloon and an alley night stray
    Drenched in the rain waiting on the light of day
    The moon acting as a spotlight in the interrogation room of God
    “I didn’t mean to upset you.” Jamie muttered as he began to sob
    “I knew you wouldn’t understand, why did you beg me to be honest?”
    “You said I would be protected. You made me a promise.”
    Jamie losing his balance, neglected while God holds a knife
    Wondering where he could go to regain a new hope of life

    It was a normal afternoon when his step dad came home
    He was stumbling again and Jamie hated them being alone
    Mom ignored his habits as if they didn’t exist
    Assured that he was strong enough to resist
    Hoping he was the prince charming to her fairytale
    But Jamie knew better, trapped within a scary hell

    Jamie went to his room waiting for mom to get off work
    Arriving hours later as Jamie was changing his shirt
    She sounded angry as they walked in and told him to sit down
    Holding a bag of weed, she asked him if he knew where she had found-
    it; “I don’t know.” Jamie replied with a puzzled look on his face
    “You can talk to me.” She said as they approached on his space
    She said that she would help him if he came clean
    He was hesitant hoping this was just another dream
    “It HIS bag,” Jamie replied angrily, “He is always high!”
    “Liar!” he yelled as she viciously slapped Jamie in his right eye
    He went crashing to the floor, “Get out!” she screamed
    Jamie stumbled out of the house as the night sky beamed

    He ran down the street hoping she would change her mind
    Hours had passed and there were no sirens trying to find-
    Him as a man passed him and handed him a balloon
    “When you are down, make your spirits rise, like this balloon”
    Jamie was too young to understand but smiled in relief
    The man seemed nice so Jamie decided to worship his belief
    Walking the tight rope of life with Jamie’s head held high
    “Maybe mommy will love me now that I’ve said goodbye…”

    i'm the lone voter... i can't handle this pressure, omg... i'm tempted to not vote so we'd have some free-for-all 5-way madness next week...

    breathless: c'mon man, you had all week to work on this and you post on wednesday? sigh... its an improvement, but i feel as if you let the picture cage you in. the piece was really by the book in that you described it.. gave a few details in what was going through the characters head... but there wasn't much development and some of your lines (like lines 3-5) didn't fit well with the rest of the piece structurally.. you also wrote 15 lines and didn't meet the 16 line minimum requirement for RSTL, but not docking you for that.

    kuja: you actually showed?! i'm stunned... the rhyming was better than i expected, but i typically have low expectations from you on that end, tbh =p pretty interesting take on this picture, certainly one i wouldn't have thought of. the great thing about writing about fantasy worlds is that you can write virtually whatever the hell you want and it still makes sense. Example: jelly baby armies.. same goes for writing about being in a drug induced state. but i digress.. the story read smooth and was a very amusing read. have the ringmaster trick them in the end was a smart decision on your part, cause i didn't see it coming.

    shadow: the start of your piece came off as really awkward to me.. the first two lines. you started your piece at the end and then retold it from the beginning.. you mean to tell me you're capable of doing new things?! =o overall a pretty solid piece, other than the awkward beginning nothing i can really pick at. but i can say the ending sounded like you just wanted to finish off the piece and decided to toss in some man with a balloon..

    vote: Kuja - his piece was the most enjoyable and most solid this week
