:bigthumb391622925:The ComeTogetherProject is all about encouraging community.
What are we all about?
Our goal is to bring the community directly to the members, in an attempt to inspire members to be a more active part of the community. With our focus on the "spread the love" concept, we encourage promotion, features, compliments, constructive feedback, random acts of kindness, reviews, support, and above all a strong sense of community.
We promote and feature community projects and events, bring deviants and groups with a focus on community to the forefront, post articles that educate members on how to get involved, and encourage collaboration of all kinds of art.

My Midnight Lover.I spend the darkness<da:thumb id="410243846"/> <da:thumb id="410123241"/>
Waiting for you and your gracious splendor
In the midnight shroud
Your touch to graze upon my skin
Your lips like sweet roses
I have tasted none other...
Your scent has captured me into a game
A life intertwined within my veins
My heart now, full of burning desire
I crave you more than ever before
Your love and lust are all I ever need
To declare to the world that we are twisted
Now let us make the solemn night
An anthem for the lonely hearts
With you and me touch by touch
For your teeth graze upon my whim
As I wait patiently for the crimson dawn
To never come again...
To never come again.
I Like The NightsI like the Nights. What about you? It gives me time to think; to get away, to focus. I can rest my mind and spirit, as well as see what to do. The Nights always will be there, with time to think and time to breath. The Nights relieve your stress, as well as keep you calm and sane. With them, my spirit will never wane. I see the truth with Night. I feel safe with Night. No matter what, I feel no fright. I need no other light.
When I speak to the Night, I ask myself, 'What do others think? Why am I so different? How is it one can be so wrong yet so normal?' Things are different with the Night; I can speak freely and no one will care, I can see without being seen. I can think upon the hate and see it right. I can change my opinion in one moment for the better. I have a friend, the Night, she stays with me and leaves only for a short time; I need no other. I have my friends, but none of them can see me the way they should. With Her, I stay sane. People come and go, but Night, my love, will
ClairvoyantMy eyes are always open. From the rise of dawn to the moon's reign in the night and even in my dreams, I see.
My sight shifts, swirls of clarity come and go. Sometimes it's all tinged blue around the edges like I'm underwater and I can stay down for hours without having to breathe. It can be surreal, seeing that way. A waking dream that captures my vision, so entrancing I can't look away.
Sometimes it flashes; a glint of a knife, a smile, a scream. Bits and shards of pictures- puzzle pieces giving them selves to me but some mysteries are better left unsolved.
It's a burden and a safe guard with an ocean-tide mood ruled by something not at all in my control.
I think that's what freaks me out the most. The randomness of it all, the tiny things I choose to ignore that could be important.
But I can't chase every one of them, can I?
This morning in the shower it was a storm, dark with raging winds. A broken window and wet shards of glass at my feet
UnderstandIn my dreams
To all the hurtful lies
While I dream
demons come for me
take my soul
let me go
death is calling
take me home
my agony wails
despairing of a hell
mellow of danger
call me forth
through all my anger
a little stranger
sun setting on the endangered

I'm no supermanA young man walked down the street, staring at the sidewalk and tucking his hands into his jean pockets as he tried to keep himself from making eye contact with anyone he passed by. He needed to be invisible for as long as he could and, due to a very terrible mistake, he was having to quit a lot of things he used to do and go under the radar. Nick was the superhero of this city, and his identity had been leaked.
Everyone knew now that the completely average Nickolas Fletcher-Hodgkiss was the incredible hero, mainly known as Wonder Boy. Nick could never come up with a proper alias for himself, so he just stuck to the name given in the paper headlines, and he felt it suited him well enough. He was able to protect the city at night, and go to school and play his music at local bars during the days and some evenings. He was a badass, and yet still could maintain his normal personality, but now...now that had all suddenly been ripped away from him.
He couldn’t be the same average joe
girl, unknownShe believes in ghosts, draws flowers in the palm of her hand, little graveyards to all those skeletons laid to rest in her mind closet. She believes in another life after death because there's got to be more to it than this, she knows she must be missing out. She doesn't have a God but she believes in faith, everyone needs to rely on something, no matter how intangible the proof. She believes in love when he falls asleep next to her and the silence isn't too much. When she doesn't have to count her heartbeats before she falls asleep. She believes, she believes in everything and in everyone without restraint. She doesn't know otherwise.
(maybe she stopped believing in fairytales after the girl, but we'll never know)
Faye's resolutionFaye didn’t like the plan much, but it was a good general idea, what she detested was the fact that will have to go underground; originally she didn’t mean to follow Laetitia but knowing her it was better to do so, she could be too passionate sometimes and lose control once she already had it. Her contribution mainly was to get them a place that was safe enough to not attack attention and selecting the group that will accompany them.
She had been there before and the Master showed her the ways to hide in those tunnels. The Claudia Aqueduct was a large set of waterways and sewers and even if not the best smelling place in Rome it wasn’t so horrible. When they came back with a hostage she pitied the older woman, got her to her undergarments and instructed for her to be kept safe and alone, she might serve another purpose later on.
The sound of explosion resonated through the walls and long corridors, she made sure the improvised cell was properly locked and went to the

the pale shape of you sleeping
rising and falling in the heat
I run my hands over the curves of your form and the walls
the curling corners of posters and
the four poster bed.

the sound of the floorboards creak

conchi can't afford another museconch by Hfeather53
(i gave what was left
in my pockets
to the man that taught me how to float).
he is gone;
i hear his wet footsteps in these hollow halls
as his voice rakes clean
the sands in my mind
and he is all i see in these impressions.
i am only a conch
left with lonely echoes of what was
or what could have been
and he is the wave
gone to kiss the moon
while i wait ashore.
Loving a WriterWhen you read their work –Loving a Writer by SilverInkblot
and it is work,
and you will often come second to the job –
it’s best to know which pieces are fictions,
which ones are wishes,
and which parts are for you.

drying on her cheeks, fingered her wedding band
and told me, “love hurts, sweetie,
that’s how you know it’s a good love.”
two days later, my father came back home.
he was missing his wedding ring
and when he left again,
he left a handprint on my mother’s cheek
that she carried with her even after the bruise was gone.
i grew up without a father influence in my mother’s world
and without a mother influence in my dad’s.

i grew up a thin string attaching one man and one woman
together in a way arguments and resentment could never snap.

trading me across the asphalt and steel like a

The Day She DisappearsIt is the day she discoversThe Day She Disappears by aMidnightMasquerade
she has ears
but no mouth.
She realizes that she said nothing
but in her imagination, the words between
her ears never escaped.
It is the day she discovers
she cried every tear allotted to her
for this lifetime.
She thinks of her brother trapped,
a life-long night terror, imagines fish
nibbling ashen remains, her father
in the lakebed, her father as a spiral,
her family as an old treehouse on fire,
blasted by lightning.
She feels a hysteria build in her brain,
the swarm of wasps rage.
The eroded ridges of her cheeks never fill.
Her eyes don't even shine,
two desert oases forgotten by the rain.
The wasps fly in and out, bringing paper
bits of leaves to create a nest inside
her brain. They lay eggs.
Feed the wiggle white larvae
pieces of grey matter,
all the wrong memories.
Wasp nests never slumber.
She can't either.
It is the day she discovers
time will not heal the double-barrel
shotgun wound she's taken to the stomach,
as she shovels her intestines
AshesHomeAshes by the-iron-queen
is the pulse of waves against my ankles
slowly rising up to my knees, thighs, ribs
until the water is over my shoulders, in my hair, on my lips
this is your embrace; I feel you still here
the strong current, pulling me deeper in
caressing me with sand and ashes
is what this feels like
the breath of life at the end of resurrection
the sun breaking through the darkness, penetrating the smoke
I feel you still here, in the ashes and waves
The call of the birds in the air, and the wind laughing in the grass
Soothing my tired muscles, easing my mind, singing me to sleep
You are still here, where the water meets the rocks
You are still here
Because I am still here

There is a white bear
lumbering on my porch.
He slams his weight
against my door;
eyes glazed over like a shark-
and he is hungry,
he whispers to me:
I have seen the sunset through the trees
and that is not enough.

SheShe - the dreams that once told me of...She by shehrozeameen
Could she have been what I sought?
As evanescent as the stars in the night sky
As crystalline as winter snow pouring lightly
Like the dreams that told me of her
Like my nightmares where she saved me.
Was I truly alone? Did I atone
For these lullabies and reveries
Dreams as I watch her fly
Towards me, away from me
Like Newton stones, keeping a balance
As fragile as the crystals in winter
As luminescent as the stars in night
My darkness, my light
Frozen in time, she is my abstraction
Watching over me, waiting for me to come
And lead her onward, to where the path lay
Not to trek gently, by the shades of the night
Not to halter in my way, as I watch her, a dream
A dream like no other
Could she be a dream? Could I be flying?
