AJ: Change Part 1I walked along the fence-post of the cows' pen, balancing easily. I haven't done this in years! I thought to myself, amused. I had done this all the time during my early years on Thain, when I first arrived here. That was back when I was still considered an "orphan", before Miss Celia and Mister Anders had taken me in when I was ten. They were my parents now and being an orphan was just a long distant memory. Even so, Hamley had become my home in the year and a half I had spent living there without any real parents or guardians, and it still was today.

Behind These EyesBehind These Eyes4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Behind these Eyes,
Flows a river of tears;
Tears you never see;
Tears you've been blind to.
Behind these eyes,
An ocean of pain rages.
But calm is all you see;
All I allow anyone to see.
Behind these eyes,
Hangs a curtain of thorns,
But you will never see the scars.
They've been hidden well.
Behind these eyes,
Lies the truth of my heart.
But it remains unseen,
Buried by the mask I wear.

The shitty black pickup truck pulled into the tiny gas station, kicking up dust from the road in its wake. It sidled up to the lone pump and shut off. The mechanics in the open garage didn't look up from their work.
Door opened and slammed shut. Tall hombre got out. No, he wasn't a man. He was that wolf. Couldn't miss those ears or tail for a mile. The station owner, sitting outside in a plastic lawn chair, exhaled a sweet-smelling smoke from his handrolled and grunted in acknowledgment.
Syl ignored him as he patted down the pock
SnowA soft white flake gently kisses the ground,Snow4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Its siblings delaying, blown to and fro.
Aroused from my humdrum life, I look around
At a silent midnight fall of snow.
Each crystal point shines stark against the sky,
Tracing paths determined by the wind and chance.
By a myriad of unique routes, they try
To slow their unavoidable advance.
Many melt , but more still come to rest;
A thick white blanket settling over time.
Our routine paths become an arduous test,
Made treacherous now by a frosty rime
Left to melt come dawn, cast down from on high,
As someday we all must surely die.

Life might be a little wilder, like life in a mental institution.
We might get creatures just like this
Whos excitants wouldnt be a meth-induced illusion.
A creature like this, that stood tall and wobbly,
With moosie horns and purple spotties.
With gems on his back and claws on his feat,
With bendable legs,
And a toucan's beak.
Hed have green scales,
No, maybe fur.
And eyes like an insect
From another world.
Hed wobble when he walked,
And almost fall over,
Hed never topple over.
His purple spots would be like chicken pock

I am alone for the night in this house of mine.
But, something is here, watching me
I know it isn't a person, for they would have done off with me
Therefore, I am afraid
I run and hide from these creatures who watch my every move
I try to escape, but they locked the doors and windows
I try to fight them, but it seems as if they aren't there
I scream all throughout the house
The next thing I know, I awaken from a nightmare, being put in a stright-jacket
But I know, they will be at the hospital, waiting for me arrive....
To Be Something More...To be born human, yet die something more It is a path that few will ever take. Some good and some evil, but it is a dangerous path nonetheless. Those who seek these paths will most likely live a troubled life. For no matter which path they choose, they will encounter those who find fault in them and will be hated for it. So even if they choose to be good and help others, they will always need to fear that one day, someone will try to hurt them. To be something more is a gift, but it is also a burden like no other. How does one follow a path of good when they know they will be rejected and hated for it? The only reason why I am focusingTo Be Something More...4 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This

I've held it all in
For too long now
Yet, I still can't let go.
Every second of every day
Poisoned by your presence.
Your laugh, your smile
Addicting, like a drug.
Your words, your eyes
I can't get enough.
Such a short time
So much passion.
I'll never tell,
You won't know its love.

Paradim frowned. Listen, Kai, we have a deal for you? Kai returned the look but remained silent. If I see no sign of any elf we will give Andras back in a year. Every time we see one or sense one I will hold him another year.
What about the children? How long are you going to torture them too?
Do you really think Dios is a good kid? Paradim snorted. He is your son and has gotten kicked out of four different schools for beating other children.
Kai glanced down. I swear, if Andras dies I will hunt down anyone who hurt him. Children or not, those who caused Andras pain will pay

Feel the fluttering
The warmness spreading like spilt milk
Smell the scent of a thousand roses
The bitter intoxicating aroma
See the smile
The soft, chuckling smile that dances across the face
Taste the sweet blood filling your mouth
The scorn, the malice and love mixed with the metallic
Hear the bitter tunes
The pitiful sonnets of love that's just to far-fetched

Where's Daddy?He's gone. He left. It's as simple as that. I felt frozen in time when he didn't return home that night. After all the screaming and crashing, who would want too? I laid in bed all night, listening for him, but the garage door stayed bolted too the tar, and the doors never creaked their usual alarm of an intruders presents.

Is this still Really Debatable This Thursday, my political science club (really concervative club, I like fucking w/their minds) was supposed to debate about gay rights and the overall acceptability of homosexuality. First of all, I didn't even realize that this was a real two-sided debate topic until I started talking to people in that club. I figured, being somewhat logical, that gay marriage for example, is perfectly fine and this is just like the whole civil rights movement. However, some of these people are so fucking ignorant, they think that every homosexual should go to hell.

I stand in the doorway, then step into the room, closing the door after me.
The grip on the handle is unfailing, very secure.
Guess that'd be convenient in the shower.
Once in the shower, I slip off my socks, then my skirt, and finally my panties.
Stacking my clothes in a neat pile, before I approach the curtains.
Enjoying the serene moment I have before me, a hot shower.
At least I hope there is water hot enough for that here now.
Since I was alone, I had not even bothered to check if I could look the door.
I had always loved to have a hot shower when I was alone, this was no difference.

In the trunk of my mothers car,
Contemplating those troubles in life,
That are so close and yet so far
I peer out at the tall, tall trees,
Blossoming in the spring,
And I cant help but think of,
The misfortunes life will bring
How is it when new life is born,
Growing up to fend,
Somewhere in this small, small world,
Another one will end
How is it so peaceful here,
When the world is filled with chaos,
And endless list of trifles and troubles,
That one can never chase off
How is it that the sun will set,
And rise again tomorrow,
When some shall never rise again,
Leaving others filled with sorrow

For a few moments Toki turned his attention back to the cat, who was splayed out on his back waiting for the Guardian to wiggle the long feather tipped toy over his head again. The toy had been bought as an afterthought while buying cat food and was nothing more than a long plastic handle with decorative feathers at the end, but it was Charlies favorite.
