The Human SnowflakeWith winter comes the death for which its cold is known,The Human Snowflake10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But joining it are fragile beings of its own,
Containing each a pattern found it in alone.
Could such perfection ever on its own arise?
Or must the detailed harmony that each supplies
Be fashioned by a master craftsman in the skies?
But no such craftsman can be found within their storm,
For only simple laws to which its clouds conform
Are seen to cut the facets of their product's form.
In place of architect is found this sightless force
That every peerless pattern follows in its course,
With nothing but the laws of nature as their source.
And what of this complexity? Is not it found
That chaos cannot generate a form so sound?
And in the squall where ragged wind and cloud abound,
Is not the ruling power one of anarchy?
Would not a perfect product of such forces be
In violation to the law of entropy?
Within the tempest's hidden world of physic laws,
An order that exists in freezes and in thaws
Is sacrificed to cause what

Jesus loves children,
so your Book will tell.
But if they dont know God
Theyll still go to Hell.
You shout in your zeal,
Thou shalt not kill.
And yet your kind God
slays more than we will.
A faith that condemns
the simplest act:
Eating from a tree
the Fruit of Fact,
run by a tyrant
calling for the death
of all those without
His name on their breath,
did not sit with me.
In fact, as I thought,
I slowly became
more and more distraught.
How could this Shepherd
send all of his sheep
and not even weep?
I quit believing
in a faith of gore.
I decided to
be Christian no more.
So when someone says,
I will pray for you.
I smile and answer,
And Ill think for two.
A strange sort of loveA strange sort of love4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Love is a very curious thing. Sometimes it can take months, if not years to fully bloom, even between people who have known each other their whole lives. On the other hand, sometimes a single moment is enough for your heart to be stolen, for you to realise that no matter how difficult a journey it would be you would still do anything to break down the barriers and be with that person. Sometimes a squirrel can even be in love with a human, and the red squirrel that on this day was frantically picking her way through the forest towards a small cottage in a clearing certainly fitted into this category.
When the little red squirrel had first witnessed the squirrel of her dreams (well he subsequent dreams at least, she wasn't claiming to be prophetic) transform into a human before her, she had felt utterly heartbroken. In that instant, the world had seemed to become a terribly dark and dreary place, in fact as she perched on the treetop watching him walk out of her life seemingly forever sh
Impression: Kalia's StoryThe ground shook. Well, not exactly shook, more of a slight vibration. It was enough for Kalia. The dragons were humming.

The dragons hummed.Impression: Kalia's Story8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The Hatching began.
A sense of urgency filled Kalia. Shed worked through a few Hatchings in her three years at the Weyr, working as a Kitchen drudge. It wasnt a good life but it was better than her life before. Shed worked through Hatchings before, but none made her blood boil, her breath bate, her vision spin. She slid the rack of dough she carried into the stone oven and slipped out on the pretense of collecting more wood. The pretense was needed of course, because the Headwoman simply did not trust any drudge who hadnt lived at the Weyr as long as she. Kalia had been doomed

She who cries when I hurt
She who sings when I speak
She who dances when I rejoice
She who lives when I breathe
She who dies when I ache
She who waits when I arrive
She who sighs when I leave
She who answers when I question
She who questions when I lie
She who speaks when I listen
She who dares when I drive
She who smiles when I talk
She who jumps when I ask
She who moves when I do
She who plays when I watch

She who comforts when I cry
She who adapts when I cannot
She who cleans when I spill
She who writes when I cannot
She who sees when I should
She who hears when I whisper
She who guesses when I motion
She who looks when I wander
She who stays when I ask
She who is who I love.

I'll fight my demons again...
When my tears
Will make their way
Down my face
Leaving tracks behind...
I'll give in
To the demons in my mind...
I'll do anything
They tell me to do...
I'll grab the razor
And write everything
On these blue walls with my blood...
You'll find me
Lying on my red bed
With red tears in my eyes...
You'll find my message
Written on these pale walls
And you'll cry
Just like I did...
'I see them coming...
This time I can't do anything...
They came for me
To take me away...
To these whoso demons didn't take over:
Always listen to silence of the night
And protect these lost souls
Because no one should face their demons all alone...'

The boy and the girl
never really loved each other
for you see
loved two different people
they lost their way
lost their place
and lost their time entirely.

The light is going dim,
And I'm seeing these demons again.
They are telling me I have nothing to live for.
I try to talk back, but I'm getitng ignored.
If you could only hear what I hear,
Then you would fear what I fear.
They're flying all around me,
It's getting hard to see.
The only way I can be saved,
Is waking from this nightmare.
But then this nightmare becomes a reality.
And the demons start following me.
But todays the day,
It's all going away,
Because I'm going to fight my way through it.
Crying WolfRivers of water filled the lands,Crying Wolf6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Flooding by with wicked stride,
Weeping wolf, crying over the loss.
The pack once grand now is gone.
Lone wolf crying by the river,
Look up and howl to the goddess,
The river growls for more as she cried,
Weeping over the loss of her friends.
She cried as the rain ceased,
Never more will she know how great the loss.
As she cried, her tears formed a stream and in the reflection,
She saw not just her own but another staring up at her.
It was odd for her to see,
But her weeping called the goddess.
She stared at the wolf within the tears and at herself,
What more can she take before she breaks more?
She felt the goddess presence next to her,
Turning she saw the goddess and nuzzled her for comfort.
The goddess gently laid her head on the crying wolf.
Do not be afraid or sadden. She said to the wolf. Im here for you, my child.
The wolf cried more and leaned closer,
She knew of this goddess only from stories told to her,

Cutting does not deserve that honor
For when you press that sharp blade
To your flesh; one thing alone will happen
You will bleed.
There is no set way everyone cuts
Cutting is not all the same sort of relief to all
I can tell you; I prefer a knife and I cut my arms
A bitter sweet moment of life and death balanced
In my blood.
People form habits an addiction
Cutting becomes part of your life and liberty
It is not safe, no certainly not safe;
Even the careful make mistakes and loose
More than blood.
I am not going to give in
Cutting does not control me, I am strong
There will come a day, when I do not think of it
For this is a habit; I cannot help and I write this
In my blood.

Youd never know.
Not a damsel, and not in distress
Not a maiden, and not locked in a tower.
She would wear heels,
But they get in the way of kicking the bad guys butt.
Never week and never scared
She laughs in the face of fear.
Spiders, snakes, even bears
Are no match for her.
No matter how tough she seems
And no matter how far she roams.
To him, she will always be,
His little girl.
Wearing a dress;
And sliding down the slide.
Six years old
And naive to the world.

TravellerOnce upon a timeTraveller5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when voices were voices
and weapons were weapons
I wished for something better;
come, look where it got me.
Once upon a time
when kissing meant kissing
and killing meant killing
I'd have given it all for you;
look where it got me.
Across the seven seas
and through a universe of stars
I'll wait for my September breeze
to take me back to Mars.
I've searched eternity in vain.
From the kitchen to the bedroom;
from the cellar to the rooftop
every step I take is prayer
for a ship that takes me far,
far too far away; to you.
And in cryogenic stasis, I await
the seven minutes left of what they call my life
I feel you enter through the door
and in our final hour, peace.

That smile of yours; no matter which way you look at it;
Makes the whole world bow down to their knees.
Then again, I can only speak for myself.

Forget your ties with hate.

Try to relate
Try to erase your pain.

It churns your heart with guilt.
Watch as your heart turns to wilt.
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
With mankind unkind
We're blurring up this fine line.
Forget their kind
Don't let your sky die
It will revive in time.
Stretch out to those who doubt.
Spread to the dead
Raise them up
Tell them enough
Say to erupt
With light abrupt
Fade to corrupt.
Speak your words
So they can see our lies.
The Caiman and the JaguarThe mother guardedThe Caiman and the Jaguar5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her precious brood
Ready for life
The eye fled the mantle of dusk
A rare dry season reprieve
From its fire
Cupped in moonlight
A terra borne infant wailed
And across the basin
The encounter was brief
She raised defences
Squat form tense
And he rolled in leaf litter
He never touched
Lest she flare
But umber eyes adored
The sleek ectotherm
Powerful in essence
Yet still dwarfed by her peers
The nuisance scared sustenance
Blind to her lethal potential
Yet jaws remained bound
But to warn
As crimson orbs
Guarded clumsy paws
That ruined her feast
They had grown together
Despite her wishes
As she woke
To fur brushing slates
Tan on ebon
She fascinated him
And from afar
Or not so
He was once overcome
And swam to her flank
Wet whiskers on hard scales
She had not growled
And he had stood vigil at her side since
Ten years passed
And curiosity tore at him
"Why do you not take a mate?"
She had smiled in her way
