When I turned eight, my parents sat me down and explained why we were different than the vampires and the humans. At the time I didnt really care, since all of my friends were werewolves, and the school I went was a werewolf school. The news that there were other human-type beings out there was surprising, so I became fascinated with who was which kind.
The vampires were just other creatures like us, more or less. They had their abilities, their ways of defending themselves, and their unique eating habits. They were pretty much indestructible, unless they were injured and the bleeding couldnt be stopped. A lot of vampire deaths occurred when bleeding injuries werent stopped in time. Maybe thats how Erins parents died.
The humans seemed interesting because of their mortality. They could be hurt and killed so easily, and their fragility was something new to experience. Of course, my father had to hold me back when I said I wanted to
Her Navy LoverIts for the best,Her Navy Lover6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But still she cant take it,
Its getting too hard,
For her to fake it.
She just wants him back,
Needs him to be there,
She cant take the fact,
That the Navy wont share.
Shes trying to be patient,
Barely holding it together,
Still waiting by the mailbox,
For his first letter.
Shes sleeping in his jacket,
Its taking his place,
You can tell its not enough,
By the tearstains on her face.
Friends are getting tired of it,
Most just cant understand,
How much she loves him,
And what the navy demands.
Theyre breaking him down,
And keeping him from her,
But they dont know,
That you cant stop lovers.
Shes writing her heart out,
In letters each day,
She wants it to seem like,
He was never away.
Being his support,
And staying so strong,
Hoping and praying,
That he hears this song.
Wants him to know,
That she still cares,
Wishes that he knew,
How shell always be there.
She still cant wait
The Sound of HeatIf heat was a colour, it would be the colour of a sunset.The Sound of Heat6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If heat was an emotion, it would be love or anger or passion.
If heat had a sound...
Heat is many different sounds...
The sound of a flute on a low tone
The sound of the vibrato
The sound of a cello or a violin
Heat is the sound of a trumpet
The sound of a beautiful voice
The sound of a guitar
The voice of heat can change...
It can be welcoming, loving, passionate.
Or it can be hateful, spiteful, cruel.
Or exciting, vigorous, joyful.
Heat can be inviting one second
But in an instant it can be bitter
Like the strongest sandstorms of the desert.
Heat sings many different songs...
The poping of popcorn in a microwave
The shining of the stars
The blaze and burning of a fireball
The flicker of a candle
Yet also the bite of a snake with venom
Or even the scream of hatred itself
Heat is a master of disguise
The belle of the ball in a masquerade
Yet forever fighting
::She LOVES Fruit:Part II::On Tuesday, I caught her in the lunch line and placed an orange, bumpy fruit into her palm.::She LOVES Fruit:Part II::5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
She looked up at me and smiled widely.
Thank you, she blushed.
All I could do was smile and nod. Taking my own fruit into my hand, I walked to my tree where I could peel my prize in peace.
She really seemed to enjoy the things I brought for her. Lucky guess I mused. I had hoped that she would enjoy the other fruits that I had waiting for her at home as much as she enjoyed these.
I looked up after a bit, tearing into the fleshy interior of my orange foe, and saw her sitting down at her table with her girlfriends, doing the same.
She bit into a piece and looked up at me. She smiled even wider than before until her friend noted something, making her blush and laugh.
I ripped the skin to pieces and pressed the remains in between my fingers and chuckled to myself. My own thoughts about the redness in her cheeks cause mine to echo hers.
What were they talking about? Was it about me and how

I walked up behind her and nudged her gently with my elbow as I sat in the seat next to her. Her friends walked up as soon as I touched the warm bench and gave me looks of suspicion. But she turned and smiled at me.
What have you brought today? asked one of her friends teasingly. I just smiled at them and opened my bag of daily surprise and pulled out bright green grapes clinging desperately to their vine.
The girls flew into a fit of laughter with the shock of my present. I handed the stem to her and she took it carefully and laughed a little in amazement.
I stood up and turned to go to my tree when she called out after me, Would you like to sit with us?
This only put her friends further into amusement, bubbling laughter high and ringing. What an offer.
I turned to look at her, walking backwards as I did, and put up my hands and shook my head.
Nah, Im good, I replied, removing the be
Under the Icy GlassI find you somewhere,Under the Icy Glass6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Maybe in a dream
Where you and I are better than this.
Better than the white noise
And the pecking sounds of a heart ticking fast.
We lay on frozen lakes,
Near the large crack to keep the pain alive,
To maybe hope for us both to drown.
Maybe it would be better there,
Under the icy glass,
Trapped for all eternity
At least there we would be together,
Bound not by love
But by reality and the lack of it.
