The True Life of an IB StudentIts 3am, and you furiously type out the last few sentences of the 2000 word history essay. Red-eyed, you swear as you continuously misspell words. Every back space is another second you dont get sleep. You finish close up the last sentence and click word-count: 1957 words. Saving the document, you say a little prayer that there arent any typos in your paper, after all, it is due in 5 hours, so you dont have any time to proof read your work. Then, you become angry at yourself for waiting this late to write the essay. Seriously, you think, Ive known about this for months, why did I wait until just now to write it. Shrugging, you fall into bed, too tired to change into pajamas. Slowly sleep begins to take over your mind, until something starts you awake once again: World Literature Paper 1. Its due in a month You close your eyes once again and sigh: Ill start it this weekend.

and your gentle caresses,
How you would lightly
Brush your skin to mine,
Your sweet, full lips
And loaded kisses,
And powerful squeezes.
I miss your exploration,
Scouting out my body:
Every crest and valley
With your hand and kiss alike.
I miss your thrusts
and how you swelled within me,
Filled me with love,
But left me so empty.
I miss you so much.
Love in the Eyes of MenWe are apart often. Our duties keep us so. I have my tasks, and she her own. I do think of her when we are apart, but not often. When my mind is idle, it will stray to her, among many things. These thoughts make me smile for a moment, but then I continue with these chores. When we are together, however, it is different. She is all I can think about, care for, or want. I find myself staring at her, so small and delicate. The thought of her in pain is too much, and I feel the need to protect her at all costs. She is mine... none can have her... none can indulge. O day dream of our lives together. Marriage, a family, our deaths. It all seems too perfect and surreal. Could a person ever be so lucky?Love in the Eyes of Men5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Maybe that is why it is over now.

A tiny ember choked for air,
Suffocated by ill use and
weary of the routines of life.
It now begins to flourish with
sight and smell of you. Every
moment that I think of you, the
ember catches spark, a burning
passion of love, unreturned.
What I saw todayShe closed the door behind her and leaned against the wall. As she allowed herself to slide slowly to floor, her eyes closed and a sigh escaped her breath as she reflected on what had occurred. She remained like this for a few moments, with her knees to her chest and eyes closed tightly. As she resolved how she felt, her eyes were allowed to open, revealing someone sitting across from her in the hall. She stared curiously at the person, not only for the reason that the woman whom she never met was in her house, but that there was a burgundy drip from her hair, dried now as though the fateful blow had occurred hours before. Her brown hair was stained from the blood which had flowed from the gash on the right side of her head. Herr pale skin was streaked with the droplets not only from the wound, but from her mouth as well, as though she had been choking on her own blood. Her blue eyes stared into the other's like a knife. Streaks of grey and green spiraled from the pupil, but seem to laWhat I saw today5 years ago in Horror More Like This

Smiling down on me,
Do you see him too
Who fills my heart with glee-
Peaking through the window,
Spying through the dark,
As he slumbers still
With dreams about to embark?
Such joys fill my heart
Just to see him smile
And to be at his side,
Even if not for a while.
Is he well, or is he ill?
Tell me the truth, oh Moon!
I must know, for my sake,
For I wish to see him soon.

Virgin WatersVirgin waters pouring from the skyVirgin Waters5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
From God Himself they are sent
To cleanse my body
and purify my soul.
Dripping on my face, down my back
Sliding to the ground.
Each drop picks up the impurities:
soils and oils and evil.
I stretch my arms wide
and accept the gift from Him.
Love fills my heart with each drop
Soon my own tears pollute the virgin waters
Mixing and mingling.
Then I come inside and go to bed.
Tomorrow I shall be renewed.
SatireHave you been rejoicing about the warmer winters that weve been experiencing? Do you like that we dont have to put on as many layers and wear all that winter clothing and the heating bills? Well it is all thanks to the SUVs like the Hummer.Satire5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
The Hummer uses less than 13 miles per gallon, but thankfully it can hold 32 gallons, that is as much as 100% more volume than other SUVs fuel tanks. This means that youre helping out the oil companys even by using up as much as 32 gallons of gas in about a business week of commutes. Not only this, but you are allowing the oil companies to search for oil in other parts of the world letting us rely on fossil fuel for more time than we would have before! Oil refineries also pump out more greenhouse gasses to keep the earth warmer and to save us from those pesky heating bills and those harsh winters. How on earth did people manage to last this long without Having SUVs like the hummer creating a leading cause for warmth on
The WordsI hear the words echo through my mindThe Words4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Restlessly turning and churning during the nite
Pondering what satisfaction was achieved
And where these morals are deemed worthy.
Sinned have I, but you far deeper.
Such a stain on your soul, forever blacked by guilt,
Yet you continue, unscratched, unscathed
While I tumble into darkness without direction
Repeating and reliving those very moments when
You stole away my life... my happiness
With those words, echoing in my mind.
Pains of Loveunjustified passion pulls us togetherPains of Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
seep into me, swelling and yearning
Let us learn the true meaning of closeness
and of bonding
I say the words, repeating them in a hush:
Our father who art in heaven;
The nerves churn in my womb, they expect
to come soon, being most pleasant, most awaited moment.
What shall come? occur? who knows?
Too shy, or too embarrassed, to ask.
Dream and wonder, I become ill with tension
I can withdraw and say my true sentiments
But how true would that be,
Time can only tell, in that moment.

I find myself in this position:
Stopped before the fork
Where two roads diverge.
So easy to say the one less traveled
But what if they both seem hidden?
It's never easy to make these choices.
It's never easy to say No to one,
But Yes to another.
Through it all, however,
Through this torturous decision,
I only wish for one thing:
Freedom from emotion.

It's been dying for a while.
The final blow was given today
Ceasing the staggering beats.
Try as you might
To resurrect my joy,
My ever-jovial laughs;
They are gone-
For what is there left to smile?
Where is there contentment
In this hallow world?
I once help happiness,
But I let it go,
Tossed it away so carelessly.
And for that
My heart has died.

Berdie's WeddingThe chirping woke me up this morning earlier than usual. Normally we wait til the sun rises to get to work, but this morning the birds were up before the sun. No other sounds could be heard, except for the careless song, as they chatter away outside the window. I groaned and turned over in the bed. The mass next to me didnt move. It laid there, stiff and motionless, with the chest rising and falling in an uneven rhythm as it breathed. The birds did not wake Rubin.Berdie's Wedding4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I closed my eyes for just a brief moment, just a blink, reopening them to a lit room. The yellow beams from the window danced along the bare walls, revealing the cracks and holes formed from impact. Tiny specks flittered in the ray across the room- fairy dust ma told me long ago. They leave it behind when they come and visit you in your dreams she said to me. For many nights after I would try so hard to stay awake all night to see the fairies come but I never could, always falling asleep after bout an hour. Rubin called me si

Stretching far and wide,
Frown upon me now.
As the lite rains dissipate
And the sky clears
And the sun shines
Your arch crosses the sky
Off into the distance.

What do you see?
How I wish to go with you
Ride your stripes
As they sparkle against the blue.
MemoriesMemories come rushing backMemories5 years ago in Open More Like This
As cold as winter rapids
And as harsh.
Tossing you from past to present,
Present to past,
More swiftly than a blink.
Eyes open; eyes close.
They play before you
Projecting from the back of your mind.
How long has it been?
A week? A month?
Does the time matter?
All that matters is one should
Never lose these memories,
However undesirable they be.
So thus they may never repeat.
