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
Poem of SeparationI stand before a hollowed ground.Poem of Separation7 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 know not w
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
DirtAnts.Dirt7 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.
Eulogy for MankindThat man who worships a different god that you.Eulogy for Mankind7 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.

'no,' you said.
'could we give it a name?' i asked.

ScreamsSlit my throat and watch the blood,Screams7 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.

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.

Names for bonesShe say's she's in loveNames for bones7 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
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.

Snow White QueenI was walking down a long door less hallway. The tile was a pallet of ice beneath my feet. Although there was no light, the walls seemed to reflect the smooth ivory floor. Im not sure where I was, but the air hung heavily with alcohol smell of a hospital. The scent clung to my skin, and burned my senses. I was alone but I felt them watching me.Snow White Queen7 years ago in Horror More Like This
The ghosts and screams followed me. Then, suddenly at the end of the hall, there appeared a door. It glowed with an un-earthly light. My thoughts told me to evade it, but the spirits lead me through it. Inside the only light came from the glowing floor. Their voices followed me. Their faces beckoned me closer, only one I remember clearly.
All of the spirits were female, but when I close my eyes I can only see her. She was blond, her eyes were wide orbs that shined and innocent azure. Her pale features were thin, but soft. She parted her ruby lips and spoke two icy words. Help us.
The message haunted me, it covered my bones with

How much, and exactly when,
But the wounds are raw, and I'd rather not be

The tears still scorch like the sun,
Yet my weakened heart still beats on,
The way it has always done.
BetrayedBlack smudged skies of a humble city,Betrayed7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
with embers of fiery homes
and luminous blood that flows
down into the riverside roads, merrily
They fire bombs and shout codes,
brushing the blood on mosaic walls
like depictions of hell or bloody moors,
toxic is the air
like a chamber of a memorial holocaust
on the cold winter days.
They stand on our hill
holding swords to glimmering shields
with a bewitching glare that threatens the Gods
and they'll torture your limbs and laugh, and
we who are now slaves to their betrayal
that suffer the consequence of being beat.
The minutes will be clear
as we build upon the hilltop
plotting to overthrow
for our young, and lose it all over again,
but thinking back to times of a blue night sky
with blushes of strawberry lights
and flow petal glows, that slide.

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.

We parted in July. I loved you too much. I had not thought that would become too much for you to handle. And that we would part on a technicality.
It was a stormy eve. And the lightening broke us apart, so easily it almost made you glad.
I know. The storm outside matched the storm in your voice.
I'll always be surprised at what can happen when two people begin to hate each other.
We fought in June.
When your work was getting you down and your parents were putting pressure on you and your world seemed to be falling apart.
I wanted to help you. I tried.
You told me to leave you alone.
We talked for hours in May.
And you told me about your life, about the broken dreams and the mesmerizing aspirations that you once had. And I told you about my responsibilities and my hopes. We understood each other.
We thought we would have an eternity to discuss other things. Like a future and the distance and the friends who thought you were not good enough and that I w
Fallen SnowYour words are fire,Fallen Snow6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying to burn into my mind.
They'll never break through,
Because I am the ice.
The coldest of them all,
I tell the truth.
Words you don't want to hear,
Words you'll never use.
Bold and burning,
Your words transform.
As you spit words like knives,
You change more and more.
You become so white hot,
You almost feel cold.
Your fire is no longer,
You're fresh fallen snow.
You're numb at the core,
Maybe you'll melt away.
Don't mess with ice,
Truth can't be changed.

no one to tell them, that you've passed away.
It makes me sad to think some day I'll leave them,
It makes me wish I could never die and just stay.
Whats worse is the fact that the people I want to,
know that I've gone, probably never will.
What if I die, in a flash, in an instant,
No chance for goodbyes, what a feeling, cold chill.
So much to think of and so much to see,
people to talk to, places to go.
I'd like to think that I've fulfilled my purpose,
maybe this lifetime, I can't truly know.
Death at the doorstep; silent and still.
There's nothing for it, no action no cue.
So many ways to leave without knowing,
Remember me, and I will remember you.
