She was called fat
He was called a nerd
She was called ugly
Each one with a different story to tell
Each one dealing with a different hell
Each one's cries of help ignored
Until one day, they heard someone say
Shocked,the boys and girls watched
As that lone person stood tall."you don't know what they go through! You might be making there lifes worst!"
It was like she knew
She brought the boy to his feet
She called the girl thin
She helped the boys study
And called the girl beautiful.
"Work with what you have, and never look back
Don't let them get to you
Don't let them stab you in the back
Don't let them twist the knife
Don't let them laugh at your pain
Do what ever you need to
To keep yourself sane"
She became friends
With the bullied and rejected
She stood up
And soon they all did
They all laughed and talked
And goofed off together
Until one day
The girl felt under the weather
Soon a note was found
On the chalk board of her first class
A message was written
The Season Without a NameBlazing, crackling, blistering, searing;The Season Without a Name3 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
A glorious death for a glamorous season.
Summer ends with a detonation of color, Autumn,
Painting all, even the winds, with fire,
Trying with its last breath of life
To die in the most memorable way.
And so the world burns
Like a phoenix in flame;
But flames cannot burn ceaselessly.
All fires succumb their heat.
And they leave behind no remembrance of color,
Only charcoal coated shells of what was left before.
Then the cold blows in like the relief
Of a cold press on a fresh burn.
The charred, blackened earth
Is quickly numbed by the slow, pulsing cold.
Winter quietly slips in
And world is soon covered in delicate frost.
A plague quickly breaks out,
The thin leaves chilled to the bone.
They drop like stars, or corpses,
It really depends on your point of view.
Disease riddled bodies quickly cover the ground,
Covering the ashes of a world burned away,
Tucking in what is left of the Earth’s life,
Wrapping it up, guiding it home.

FixationFrom the day we are born we look for things to entertain usFixation1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
Jumping from one fixation to another,
Each time believing it could never get better,
And then it's lost.
Like wind-blown leaves mixing in with the vibrant colour of death
That lies already crunching beneath our feet.
Yet we still believe our next fix will be found again,
So like hound dogs we breathe in the scent of our dying addiction
And begin the search again.
In these moments of friction, when our co-operation with the world dwindles
And we stand on shaking legs against the river's current,
We start to question our purpose.
Are humans simply dolls set nicely in their place?
Expected to do nothing but take what they're given,
Are we a lost case?
What is the essence of life, when we strip it to it's core?
And if we do, will we see ourselves as 'people' anymore?
What would change,
If we could stop time in the moments before the world went to hell
And just watched?
I would pull up a chair for me and you too,
So we could absorb

curtaining memory in smoldering grey..
the ice and the snow fall down today,
as the spinning world, grows still.
blanketed in ice, reflections of moonlight
as the stars dance across the sky
and the beating hearts linger, locked in stand still
like breath drifting up in spirals,
and a fire lit, dancing smoke through the miles
brought down into the ice,
taking back the mind through time..
huddled close, winters' survivals
encampments, in cabins, walking through the snow
the crisp and the scent, and the tracks we've spent
ice fishers casting tirelessly
all found in a moment, looking back
furs and fireplaces.. survival and alive,
again, in the thrill of winters bliss..
the snow blankets down,
and it gives us this.

and gaze up to its leaves
eventually you'll see
a road to green
until it fades and the road
leads to warmth or danger
a path that leads to some
a scarlet, frail blood
and some to
a dainty, jonquil sun
a trail that arrives to
ruthless, fiery lava
and maybe to
dry, unfurled raisin
but even the blood and sun, lava and raisin perish,
to the grounds of being ragged and torn, speck by speck, and sad
the road led to nothing
but stiff, brown pigtails that came in
frizzy oak, with nothing to hold
so look down again, instead, and study the land ahead
it won't be green forever, as it is iridescence at its finest endeavor

sprinkled with shredded coconut, stars
in the night sky of my summer blackened hair
Wind's delicate hands pinch my rose cheeks numb
blue fingers nibbled by the tiny canines of cold
Thoughts dissolve in the sweet chills that coat me
And I watch them drifting, tossing
Tumbling in the wind
An inviting embrace of ice
A blur and rush of white
Trembling lips stilled
by the kiss of frost
Shivering heart stilled

the rough callouses on my heels caking with cold mud
there is a lane in front of me that has always seemed endless
rolling and stretching through trees and blades of grass
i am carrying suitcases that are fuller than they were two months ago
weighed down by rocks, letters, string, paint, and water
freckles adorning my hands, the pink colour fading from my skin
there are memories in my chest, of tears and laughter, sunlight
of fireflies and turtles, hares and coyotes
my back feels weighed down, the red and green of canoes reflecting in puddles
my body is full of these things, always carrying, always remembering
always singing and feeling the heat of fires, the distinct hum of the forest
a guitar buried underneath a decaying picnic table
walls covered in notes from twenty years ago
the river soaking into the palms of my hands, curling my hair
summer fills my bones with these things, imbedding them in marrow
and the road towards autumn leaves them s

I’m finally done with school today
Just leaving school after a so long day
Not to mention the extra detention hours
And student council throwing their jobs on me
Using the nice talk and words, full of flowers
Before I realize it, it’s already five O’clock
Oh! I’m so late! I need to reach the street block
I ran for so long, and now I’m lost
Must have taken the wrong turn somewhere there
Now I’ll have to pay the cost
I found myself in an open place,
No road, no signs, no single face,
The grass is the only thing on ground,
With the sun going down in its background,
Such a beautiful sight I missed for so long,
Since our last trip to east of Hong Kong,
I called home to ask for a ride,
With a punishment waiting for me where I reside,
I sighed and looked at the horizon,
Oh! Pretty sun, with your steady downslide full of pride,
I can smile peacefully and let my troubles slide.

Imperfection steps on top this plot
Where lies the remains of vivacious lives
Viscerated like imperfect threads
Where come the seekers to be blessed
Gathering for an essential prayer in hopes of avoiding hell
That their imperfections might skip that deeper well
Rotting is above and below the grave
From the core of the Universe
Change eternally rides
In Cosmos and Chaos transistion comes
And tombstones, like fingers, point it out
Our imperfections, like graves, play their part
There lies the awful truth of change
Kept at bay by nothing above or below, not even hope
We are imperfect and perfect proof, Eternity's rule is absolute

They shined with pride as the sun died.
I wish I could be like them,
Sparkling when no one could judge them,
but hiding when they could.
Happy as can be, the moon watched his kids.
He was lonely until they showed up,
every night he would wait, shining in pure bliss.
They all laughed and danced till the sun was over the horizon.
It was time to say goodbye,
The stars disappeared and the moon stopped shining.
The sun shone brightly and day began,
but the moon was happy for he would see his friends again and dance the night away.
I went to bed and got to sleep, so I could once again,
see my friends and dance once more.

The sky is overcast with snow.
Meadows, woods and fields are
Firmly captivated in winter.
Life has well hidden,
Seems to observe only with timidity.
But hare and venison migrate lively.
I see the traces in the snow.
They are looking for food that
Nature still provides for them only sparsely.
The frost, it carries on too much.
A hard time for animals.
Therefore we will preserve them carefully.
The manger at the forest edge is richly equipped.
Winter Blessings may make humans and
Animals in the country happy!

nor the dead deer’s shank
chased by amber draught
In the forest’s heart
cold streams through gnarled digits
The matted beard clings

In the forest’s heart
cold streams like a river
through halls of myrtle and beech
And the bent shoulders shudder

January 13, 2015
I was alone today
Wondering around, finding new places,
Discovering new things.
I kept a field journal
Jotting down ideas and things I find.
Most are ordinary items,
I was going my normal route.
I looked up and spotted something,
It looked like an animal;
But wasn’t certain.
Carefully I walked closer
Making sure I wasn’t to fright it.
It looked like an elk,
But instead antlers,’they were branches srouting
From where the base of the antlers started.
It stood still
Birds nestled within the branches,
I sketched it in my journal
Writing down my observation,
After sketching this creature out on paper,
Insuring that it was indeed real.
It looked at me
Slowly turning from profile view,
And simply walked away
To another part of the world.
It made e think
About what other creatures lurked within the shadows.
Hiding so well
That you would have never noticed
Unless you moved closer,
Or opened your eyes.
