the man says,
his whistles echo
like choking screams
from the passenger side window.
in a moment the car
has swept into the distance
in a windstorm of red-brown dirt.
it's two months after my twelfth birthday
and for the first time
I feel the fears of a woman.
we were in middle school
at some friend's pool party,
swimming in orange afternoon sun.
they crossed the dried grass
in their bikinis and the cars,
I can still hear their honking,
all of us startled like little birds
by the sound--
squealing out beneath grinning faces,
our bodies barely out of the first gate.
stubbornly crossing my arms
and wrapping in my towel,
staring at the shutters of the house
I couldn't hear.
she was barely old enough
to ride her bike by herself
when she came home crying--
auntie was dying of cancer
and all she could think of
was the laughter of the boys in her class
at the word "breast".
they were jokers cack
It's OkayIt's okay to be sad.It's Okay1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's okay to be mad.
It's okay to cry,
To not have the strength to try.
Sometimes people just need to
Let it all out,
Scream and shout,
And that's okay.
Admitting something's wrong
Doesn't take your strength away.
Ask for help
If you need it.
Don't feel weak
Just because you
Enough to move mountains.
Crying is good.
If you didn't cry
Just bottle it up
Until you burst.
You don't even
Need a reason
Just have a good cry.
Take a long bath
And watch a movie
That makes you laugh.
Bake a cake
Just for the sake
Of making something.
Lay in bed
Until the bad thoughts
Leave your head.
Just sit back and relax.
Because it's okay
To not be okay,
And to take a day
Just for you.

Words Are Powerful ThingsYou’re so angryWords Are Powerful Things4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
You let words swarm up inside.
Screaming to get out.
They yell and shout.
They sit there,
Turning into horrid things that should never be even whispered,
In the softest tone.
You get so angry
Cause you’re so afraid.
Like so many other people
You let your fear burst into rage.
The monstrous words inside of you
Refuse to remain in their cages.
You let those words escape your lips,
All of the sudden you feel like your words have killed someone.
As you see their face.
Words are suddenly bullets.
They’ve pierced your victim’s heart.
Fragments of a once pretty, friendship scatter on the floor.
The pieces so broken, I doubt you could find all of the shards to make it whole again.
There’s a slamming of a door.
Whether that be real,
Or just a metaphor.
To say you’ve been locked out,
From this once dear friend of yours.
I hope one day.
You’ll find better words
To form a key.
So you can find your way back to them.

Amidst the towering trees in the land of fire, there was only the green of leaves and the brown of bark to be seen for miles. That changed when something landed on the branches and sprang off, yet it was so fast that all to be seen as it landed was a blur that disappeared to the next branch just as swiftly.
It raced through the treetops until it came to the edge of a vast clearing with a lone stone pillar right in the center before coming to a halt. By now, it was possible to make out just what this speeding object was: a teenage boy clad in a black-and-orange jacket and pants, traditional Konohagakure sandals, and a headband that bore a plate of metal with a leaf-shaped symbol carved into its surface.

Her Butler, Valentine
It was February 14th and as the sun rose on this very special day, the snow from the night before sparkled as if it had been touched by magic. It was Valentine’s Day once again, and all of London seemed to embrace it with welcome arms. Every shop and café had decorations of hearts and red and pink banners, and there were more flower bouquets than could ever be sold- in spite of the cold weather. And though it was still quite early in the morning, lovers walked through the cobbled streets hand in hand with nothing but smiles. All in all, it was the perfect scene to symbolize the romantic holiday. . . Though in the center of the great city, there was one stately town house near the center of London’s elite class, where there was not a single decoration to be had.
It was the second abode of the Earl of Phantomhive- and current

Mitch and his friends were working in an office for a smaller company in their town. They had pretty boring jobs and were mostly slacking off everyday without doing much. But their boring jobs enabled them to hand around with eachother and become such close friends.
