Jojo's Problem Everything was well in Whoville, not a thing out of place.Jojo's Problem7 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
But somewhere in Whoville, there was a sad face.
Who could be so sad, so blue?
Why, it was Jojo, the very sensitive Who.
Jojo sat on his bed in his room. He was on the brink of crying, until one of his 96 sisters came into the room.
Jojo! Dad wants you! It was Holly; she had pink hair, pink clothes with a white fur collar and white fur at the end of her sleeves, and pink everything. She was the total opposite of Jojo right now.
What? Jojo looked at her and got up from the bed. She was a little taller than him. Then again, everyone is taller than Jojo.
Dad wants to see you, and have you been crying? Holly saw Jojos sad face.
Not yet. Jojo whispered to himself as he glumly walked out of his room. Holly skipped behind him.
Do you think Jojos in trouble?

Jojo was scurrying, faster than a mouse,
He wanted to get ready, for his brand new friend
And he wondered about a new fashion trend.
Jojo, you need to wear brighter colors! Holly was saying while Jojo scrambled to the front door. They both had backpacks on their backs. Jojo had a black mesh one, and Holly had a pink mesh one. Of course.
I think she already noticed the pinkness in my cheeks when she saw me looking at her. Jojo said, opening the door.
Listen, I know all about girls. I told you that yesterday. Holly followed Jojo outside where they would walk to school together. Jojo always walked alone, but this time is different. Way different.
But Holly was right. It was only yesterday when the girl first looked at Jojo.
Well just tell me what to say and do, Jojo
Death.The flesh from her bonesDeath.7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Worms and mold
Her eyeballs averted,
and fell out of her head.
her bones turned to dust
and they left her for dead.
The gravestone all crumbled
and Ivy Coated.
Death came to soon,
and nobody saw it.
A loud honk and screech
she skidded so well-
Across the pavement,
but now she's in hell.

Those days we played flicker and fade
From the first day
You approached, Asking
And I acted like you cramped my style.
Now that you're gone I see
How lucky I was
So long ago, how lonely I've been without you.
I remember when I saw your teeth
They disappeared when I saw your smile
It shone through, lit up the best in you
To me, you were the best I had.
How ungrateful I was
Looking back on what you did
Enjoying my company, Following
I file your name under 'friends gone'
Now I long for you to be here with me.
I saw less and less of us before you left
I'm returning to in my memory
Filming and Singing together
Missing you, all the while.
Jojo's Problem Pt. 7 It was now three days before the big concert, and Jojo was in school surprising, huh? He was getting books out if his locker and looked at the clock on the wall. 12:40, hes late for lunch with Candace. Candace is a year older than Jojo, and shes taller, too. (No surprise.) She has long brown hair with light blue and is a total hippie. She is obsessed with the earth, (or in this case, a speck,) and also loves to donate. Shes a care-giver. Today, she was wearing a white t-shirt that says HEAL THE WORLD on it. She also has a flower in her hair today, like everyday. She is one grade higher than Jojo. Now, of course, their world is our speck, so we should respect that. Oh, and she has braces and is a vegetarian.Jojo's Problem Pt. 77 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Despite The FlamesDespite The Flames6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
We received the call as we were watching National Treasure, late the evening of December 13th. My older brother answered the phone, and before he even spoke, I felt a pressing ache in my heart. A look of shock shadowed Cameron's face as he listened to the man on the other end of the call.
I told my youngest brother to pause the movie, and get his shoes on, though I wasn't sure yet what the emergency was. Scrambling to obey, also feeling the sudden tenseness of the moment, ten-year-old Landon grabbed his winter boots and coat, while I hurried to my bedroom for mine. Landon was visiting, staying over for the night because otherwise he would have been home alone. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, or chances were he would not have survived.
Cameron, myself, and our two other adult sisters, were splitting rent on a single-wide trailer house about twenty minutes from where our family lived. We'd only been sharing this trailer since the beginning of November, and h

Come on! I dont think I can wait any longer!
Well how about if you try going to sleep or reading a book or something?

I thought I could make things clearer,
that it was you I sought.
I love you Bella.
But you wouldn't listen,
couldn't you feel your love for this fella?
Beyond my limits I hastened.
Thought that you'd change,
but your mind was forever his
and your heart strange.
I will always remember this.
The feeling of loneliness,
when your heart stops beating
and when I plummet to my abyss,
as I think of your feeding.
I love you too.
I thought there was a chance.
But soon I saw through.
You didn't love me, in that way, you never spared a second glance.
Though I felt it when you kissed me back.
Your mind was his, you were gone.
I wasn't your Jacob Black.
I will never see you during dawn.

The agony spiraling through me.
I was the one damned.
How could you let me be?
Come back. Stay.

The words that made me feel this way,

Remembering HazelI remember Hazel really well. Sometimes my memories are so clear that I can almost feel her sitting next to me, or walking by my side. Seven years have passed, and I miss her like she went away yesterday.Remembering Hazel8 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I met Hazel for the first time when I was twenty; I was an ambitious guy studying psychology who thought that he had already reached happiness, buying a nice car and hanging out with friends. Hazel opened my eyes and, thanks to her, I discovered how beautiful it is helping others and giving them second chances. Hazel helped me grow with her generous words, her patient work and her strawberry candies given to everyone.
She was the most helpful person I've ever known, because she liked to help everyone who needed comfort and never asked for something back; Hazel was happy to receive your smile, and felt satisfied hearing "Thank You", and for her that was enough.
Mostly for its nice sound, her unique name, Hazel Daziel, earned her many nicknames; for someone she was Hazie-Dazie, for some
Valentines SkateValentines Skate9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Valentines day. No one had expected it to snow. The village looked like Christmas. The parks canal was frozen to ice and everyone was skating or having snowball fights or just enjoying the beautiful view.
Haruno Sakura put on her skates and carefully stepped on the ice. She had never stood on ice before. Lee, as great he was in everything, came skating towards her with an amazing speed. "You can do it, Sakura-san! Do you want me to help you?" He smiled but Sakura shook her head. "Thanks Lee, but I'll try first. If I've fallen for a hundred times you can help me." "Sakura never accepts help! She's so strong! It must be her youthful strength!" Lee skated away and Sakura grinned a little. Silly Lee.
Slowly, she moved forward. It sucked. She was so bad at it. Another little step. Sakura almost fell now. She moved her arms to regain her balance when she saw Ino fall down on her face, hard. Sakura burst out of laughter.
"What's so funny?" A cold voice said. Sakura turned around, well, she tr

Day of BloodTwo soldiers on a dead plain meetDay of Blood9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Two champions of the bitter end
Their weapons raised, the dawn to greet
Their kingdoms' honor to defend
One knight in black, one knight in red
Both covered crown to sole in steel
Standing amidst the bloodied dead
Ten thousand men whose fates are sealed
They face each other, standing tall
Shield-crests glistening in the sun
Each knowing death is this day's call
Though both are far too proud to run
No word is said as each steps near
Seeking out the other's faults
No sound is heard save clash of steel
As they begin their deadly waltz
The two fight on through hours long
As the sun arcs overhead
Despite their wounds, they struggle on
Knowing soon that they'll be dead
And as dusk falls, a blow strikes true
The black-garbed knight slumps to the ground
Now joining all the blood-red hues
That lay silenced all around
The red knight now held victory
He knew that was the bitter end
He staggered once, fell silently
And laid beside his one-time friend

Spring should not be time for goodbyes
Trees budding. Forsythia blooms.
A harbinger of Spring--
Robins boasting on the lawn
Pecking, preening, singing their song of Winter past
The Song of Hope
No, Spring should not be for Goodbyes.
In Summer, with the grit of sand
Almost a comfort between our toes
The clack of cobbles on an empty stretch of beach
Singing the Song of Sirens
Of love deeper than the Sea
No, Summer should not be for Goodbyes.
Autumn with it's Indian Summer
Laughing warm upon our faces
The bright Harvest Moon
Shines as perfect kisses are given
Moonlight caresses and beckons us to love
No, Autumn should not be for Goodbyes.
Winter, when the snow has shrouded the rich earth
In wispy wedding veil
The bare trees shudder against a cold, grey sky
As one bereft leaf clings to its yesterdays
Its lonely song adrift, a lost murmur upon the wind
And from far away, far, far away
Goodbye is heard
In the stillness
Understanding myself - V.1I though I knew what love was. I was so sure about it. But then I met you.Understanding myself - V.17 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
I still remember when we first met. Back then, I would never thought I would fall in love with you. You were just so simple. I didn't know how else to describe you. You were so quiet and reserved. I even thought you were kind of weird.
But later, we talked. When I heard your voice, it wasn't loud, but neither insecure. You knew what you were thinking about and had the right way to put it in words. You were rather talkative - the complete opposite of what I though you were. When it was about the things you were familiar with, people almost couldn't stop you talking.
But we still were just two strangers. No matter that, you have run to me when I was in need. You helped me in everything I was confused about. And you did all that with a gentle smile on your face. You were never complaining if it was hard for you.
We soon became friends and later the best friends. I have never found another person who could understan
MoroseShould you wish to find MoroseMorose6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A trepid task awaits you
I'll give you directions, but you'll have to go it alone.
If you slog your way past the Morass' of Melancholy
Through colossal, archaic stone arches heralding nothing for there presence
And continue through dingy cobblestone lanes of sepulchral ruins beneath a gloomy grey sky
You'll arrive at Sorrow's courtyard, bordered by dim and flickering lanthorns of macabre design.
At its marshy center staggers a massive and gnarled weeping willow
There, in the shade beneath its looming branches
Amidst gritty detritus from the pipe-work of an elaborate drainage system
Perched on one of the two remaining rope swings will you find him.
Morose is not great company I warn you
His skin, all together translucent from the lack of sunlight he receives, stretches over his lanky frame.
He has long, unkempt dark hair about his brow and armpits
And yellowing nails which curl beneath his toes and fingertips.
Morose has a downright disheartening air about
The beauty of PoetryThe great thing about poetryThe beauty of Poetry7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is that it doesn't need to rhyme.
Well, Unless you want it to.
It doesn't need to make sense at all.
All that matters
Is what it means to you.
It doesn't need to have some great
Mystical, Underlying meaning.
Wouldn't it be fun
To confound people with your poetry
Way off in the future
Where people think you wrote about
The war between Heaven and Hell
All you wrote about was sprinkles on a cupcake.
The dirtiness of your shoelaces.
Another great thing about poetry
Is the fact that
You can interperate as whatever you want.
A simple poem
About a red balloon
Could mean the sociopolitical destination of the world, to you.
To another it might mean
The spread of communism through out the eastern part of the world.
And to another
It means the innocence of a lost childhood.
Poetry is the true form of individualism.
Poetry can take so many forms.
Poetry can become lyrics to a song.
Poetry can become a friend you pour your deepest secrets into.
