12 Virtues1. Courage
When you encounter a challenge, and are unsure what to do, never hesitate.
Go with your gut.
Have the integrity to realize what is right, and the courage to stand up for what you believe in. Always stand up against those who mock you and those you care about. And always have the courage to admit when you have done something wrong, or are doing wrong.
Take hold of your body and seal it.
Sex is the gift of completion.
The mind and heart must be truly fulfilled, before you engage in the act of lust. Let yourself not be alleviated by the stirrings in your body, but rather by the care and affection of others.
Sex is connection between you and the one you truly love.
NOT mere lust.
Do not put your cravings farther than necessary. Eat food and drink only to keep yourself in good health and in good spirits. Waste none.
Food is the essence of life.
It is NOT the essence of being alive.
If you have all you need, do not
DirtAnts.Dirt6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walking up and down their hill,
Collecting food, living as one.
Think not of yourself, but the colony as a whole.
Spend everyday, the only motive being to gather dirt.
Dirt is why we live, Dirt is all that life is.
How precious this dirt must be.
You work all day with no reward or thanks.
Your sacrifice is all for naught.
The cold harsh winter is closer with every minute.
All your efforts are in vain.
For even the thoughtless ploys of a child's hand,
Can destroy everything you live for.
Investing your existence on pointless, ephemeral things, on dirt?
Is truly sad.
Run back and forth like a little ant on the ground, running in line.
You will never find happiness this way.
Do not become a cog in a machine that will soon cease to exist.
Do not give into the world and accept what is put upon you.
You have a mind.
You can reach for the skies.
However, you cannot achieve your dreams,
If you still care about the dirt.
Poem of SeparationI stand before a hollowed ground.Poem of Separation6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All the air around me is pure and golden, devoid of all sin and regret.
In front of me, is a large gateway, glowing with life.
This doorway ahead of me is made of solid lead.
I cannot see what lies on the other side of it.
There are two pillars on each end of The Gate.
The pillar on the left is made of pure diamond,
Decorated with thousands of tiny scratches.
The right pillar is made of tin, painted with a thin coat of gold.
There are a few marks on it, scratches tearing off the false gold.
The diamond glows a magnificent light,
And the false gold glows an ominous black.
In each and every person, The Gate waits to be opened.
The gold is forever happy living in denial,
Fleeting moments, pety arguments, and little achievements.
Yet I chose the Diamond, instead of the easier side of life.
Why did I chose the more difficult of virtues.
Why was my life pre-destined to end here?
The Gate opens.
Warm and tender hands run down my body, I am loved.

i pointed to one and said, 'that one doesn't have a name.'
you smiled and said, 'let's name it alyssa, then, so it'll have an identity.'
but names and identities are not the same, and i wish i knew how to tell you this. it didn't matter anyway, though, because the alyssa star exploded the next day.
'do you think the moon has a name? and do you think the moon is keeping it a secret from us?' i asked another night.
'no,' you said.
'could we give it a name?' i asked.
'no,' you replied irritatedly. 'it doesn't need a name. it's only the moon; it's only the earth's moon. it doesn't have an identity outside of that. it doesn't need one.'
but it does need one, i wanted to say. it really does.
because i know what it feels like to only be known as a possession of something or someone else.

Eulogy for MankindThat man who worships a different god that you.Eulogy for Mankind6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That woman who is in love with another woman.
The family who's skin is a different color than yours.
Such trivial things.
We are all the same.
Each and every human being lives by the same code.
A code of chivalry, and morals, and pride.
There are some minute differences, but all you do is squabble.
That man's uniform is different than yours.
You do not know that man.
But you look down on him.
A general spews out an order that the man is evil.
That he is your enemy! You must fight him!
Fight with that man, without even knowing why.
He is your brother, he is no different from you.
Your brother, a fellow human being.
Judge not by how you are different, but how you are alike, for we are all the same.
We all wish to love and be loved.
We all simply wish to believe what we want.
We are all one, don't you see...
We all wish for our dreams to come true... Yet in order for us to believe in our dreams, We must mock the dreams of others.

ScreamsSlit my throat and watch the blood,Screams6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Streaming down my skin.
It only hurts a little bit,
But the screaming never ends.
Follow me everywhere,
Pretend I will never know.
I don't know where you're hiding,
But I do know that you're watching.
Sing me a love song,
To strangle me to sleep,
But don't feel guilt,
I'll pretend it's just a dream.
Cut me in a thousand peices,
Hide them in the sea.
I know you won't remember me,
But you won't forget my screams.
Red Temptations, The beginningShe lay there, cold, lifeless, her body sprawled in different directions like a ragdoll dropped by a small child. His hands, gently cradled her head, a low growl coming from his throat. "Leilah..." he growled, eyes darting warily. "I swear I will kill you for this! For killing Lunaria!" He hissed, his eyes darkening to a pale coal. He lowered his head to the unmoving girl's neck, restraining another growl. He gently set his mouth on her neck, his sharp teeth piercing the soft skin. Her body let out a small yelp before going limp. The blood poured, darkening the concrete to a dull crimson. He drank it, faster, hungrier. He had to save her. He growled, bringing his mouth back. "It's all I can do...she'll be in extreme pain....but she'll be alive." The frail girl wriggled in his arms, wincing a bit before her eyes opened slightly, revealing a pinkish tint to them. She coughed, blood pouring, flooding her mouth, her eyes widened. The males name was Cethin. Lunaria remembered him.Red Temptations, The beginning6 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This

My winter rain.
My safety blanket.
You held me together,
Kept me alive.
But I tore you apart.
It burns now,
Almost six months after,
Because of me you are only a memory.
I wake up screaming,
When Ive had no nightmares.
My dream world has become an abyss.
I cant breathe.
Im being ripped into.
There is no falling star.
Someone touches me,
I cringe away.
There is no winter rain.
But alight with raging fire.
There is no safety blanket.
Yet still. . .
You are my falling star,
My winter rain.
My safety blanket.

because of the world that we share

ChoicesThese choices I'm hearing clearly all each represent,Choices6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Voices of the fallen calling hard to reach my ears.
Steering practices of mine, gearing lies to weave behind,
Seldom graced facets in my mind I leave alone.
And so blinded foes with their hands in every jar,
Are reminded of their woes as every digit's past is scoured.
Every time they twiddle thumbs and every day that ever comes,
Distant past at last emerges and derives them from their wrongs.
Policy of what you will, what you may.
Something else wanders from the hole that you made.
Gentle fear monger spills his guts on this stage.
Not a single soul would see his outbreak as strange.
What Happened?You stare into my eyes,What Happened?7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a broken star.
So lifeless and dull,
Without a care in the world.
What happened to you?
To make you this way?
You were so full of life,
Your just like an empty soul.
I remembered the days,
When you laugh out loud.
When you shout to the world,
That you no longer care.
That you would live your life,
The way you want it.
To live your life,
Without regrets and without problems.
Your eyes say differently.
It screams of regrets.
It screams of worries.
It screams of everything you swore you would forget.
What had happened to you?
I have seen things,
I shouldn't have seen.
I have heard things,
That shouldn't be heard.
The day that you left,
My life had went down.
No matter what I do,
They simply would go wrong.
Days have passed.
It's been forever since I last saw you.
And how deeply I have missed you.
And on that day,
When I saw you walked by.
All I could do,
Is stare at you with these eyes.
Truly I was baffled.

Loss and GainI am on a ship, surrounded by the people that I love.Loss and Gain6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We crash into an iceberg, a berg that breaks the ship into a thousand pieces.
I thrash in the water, desperately trying to salvage anyone,
Clinging to anything that I can find,
Trying to save just one of the people that I care about.
The merciless ocean takes them all away from me.
Did I make all these friends, just to lose them?
Why do I fall in love, if in the end, she wasnt what I thought it was?
Why do I cry now, when some day I will smile again?
Why do I feel so much pain inside, yet sometimes so much joy?
Do I gain, only to lose it all?
Was I born, just so that I could die?
I float alone in the water, all by myself.
No one is salvaged.....
Life is just like the tide.
It ebbs, and flows.
Sadness and anger come in, pulling me down into the depths with them.
Then love and friendship come back, pushing me back to the surface of the water.
Life grows, life dies
You lose some lovers, you lose some friends.
Names for bonesShe say's she's in loveNames for bones6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
only because she's lied to herself
lied about who he really is
She cant close her ears
she throws her arms over her head
trying to block it
block it even in her sleep
from entering her pores
and it seems to work
it never gets deeper than her strength
because his name
are chiseled into her bones
and his touch blocks all the words
words that are thrown carelessly in her direction
in her head
words that are telling her
telling her to give him up
telling her to stop before its too late
telling her to let go now
while she still has a say
because tomorrow she wont know if she does
and it makes a person feel so helpless
when they cant say stop

The EarthThe rain hits the flower gently. To help it grow from the earth. The earth is pure and soft and beautiful. The flower rises from the ground. It blossoms as beautiful as the sun and closes up as the sun sets and the moon rises so bright in the night sky. When the moonlight hits the flower it give it a beautiful glow in the darkest of the nights. You can see it glow. As you watch the flower glow all your hopes, dreams and all your wishs come into realty. Like wishing upon a star you treasure all the moments of the world. That you live in that you hold in your hands gently with Love and care.The Earth6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

I can hear myself breathing,
and I can hear the rhythm of my heart.
I feel the bones move,
and I can feel the muscles stretch.
I say that I'm in love with a guy,
and I dream he has a secret crush on me.
As I bath, a hair gets glued to the tub,
and its shape looks just like him;
I had to change it.
My stomach feels like it contains a balloon ready to burst;
and I can see the body changed,
got ready for winter or
it's not satisfied with the stress it gets,
and the lack of exercise.
My roommate is strange,

I make up stories when I'm sad,

We would be playing with our gazes

Please dont say,
Those things to me.
If you hate me,
Leave me be.
Every single time I make,
A simple little mistake,
It seems you have to tell me,
How stupid I can be.
If I gain a pound,
You drag me to the ground,
And tell me Im a hog;
As lazy as a log.
If I trip and fall,
You laugh at me, thats all.
You never offer me a hand,
And lift me up to stand.
I love you, and I let it show,
And in return, you want to go.
If you fall, Im there for you,
And in return, I sicken you.
Your words, they cut, and tear,
Breaking my heart, without a care.
So much, Im crying out inside,
To run from you and hide.
For me, its not so easy;
Never flippant, never breezy;
To rip your heart asunder,
And try to drag you under.
So please dont say,
Those things to me.
If you hate me,
Leave me be.
