Valentine's Day - LingXLanfanShe knew the day. Secretly, she had been waiting for it. It was foolish of her, as she watched him on that day, to think that a day changed anything. From behind her mask, Lanfan watched the Prince go about his daily business.
Instinctively she flinched every time one of those girls came close. Today it was not only acceptable, it was customary to adorn him with lavish gifts it hopes to pay tribute and win his affections. Those girls, who knew nothing of her prince, would try their hardest to be put in consideration. For if he were to become the Emperor, perhaps he would remember and choose them as one of his wives.
They didn't know a thing about him, and they thought they could just stumble all over him and that that would be enough to win his affections? He wasn't that kind of man. Lanfan fumed inwardly, glaring at the girls who shared her same desire and actually could attain it.

Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
