after you have left it.
We all saw the topic "Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan" and we all thought,
"What did he do this time?"
We continue to read the words,
"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts"
And our hearts also sink.
This could not be possible.
Of the five he seemed the most
First we think it could be a joke.
That the guys are messing with us, teasing us before the release of their new material.
Second, we are stunned, as are our bodies;
they quiver and our mouths hang open.
Overcome by the realization that this is no jest.
He is gone from this Earth.
Thirdly, we become either angry or
swollen with tears.
Our hearts plummet to our stomach, we hit things, we cry out, we vomit, we scream
Of the fourth, we become numb.
It's what creeps up our failing arms, our kicking legs
It's the pain in our throats from our tormented screams
It's the tears simply falling out and our useless hands that have no intention of wiping them
Only the Good Die YoungTonight I leave youOnly the Good Die Young5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In tears, in memory, in fear.
But I will always be with you
Wherever you go, hiding in the Shadows.
Please do not forget me
As I work my way to the Gates.
So far away, I know this.
But this is my unchangeable fate.
Do not seek Vengeance on my behalf,
It will only do more harm.
We'll be alright, in the end you'll see.
In time we'll meet again.
For Christ's sake and mine, do not worry.
Because only the good die young.
Only the great rise above the others
And pay the forbidden price.
I love you all, you are my family.
As the Fallen, we shall rise.
I'll remember you in my heart foREVer,
For I won't see you tonight.
The LoraxI bumped into somethingThe Lorax7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walking down a street one day;
A furry little creature
It looked so tired, so worn
I asked if I could help it on its way.
It would not accept,
though it thanked me kindly.
For it was the Lorax,
And, as he told me;
"I speak for the trees-
The bears, the birds, the bees
For they have no tongues.
But you people plunder us of trees,
Of land, food and shelter
My bears and birds, homeless
Die slowly from lack of these.
So I send them away
But you notice not,
No matter what I say;
And the number of my charges
Grows less every day."
He sat, sighing tiredly
"You can help me after all-
I wish to lean against that tree-"
And pointed to a pole
That was very close to me.
I told him what it was
He sighed again
Called himself a dunce
Then said "Well, no matter.
It was a tree-once."
So I propped him up
And we said our goodbyes;
Then walked away sadly
As the Lorax quietly died.

Daniel H@#&- Demented One
A common staple in many B-movies, Zombies are often depicted as taking over the world. Having watched many of those movies I have decided to compile my own Zombie Survival Guide after reading the one at Kuro5hin.org. This guide will be posted in many places I know of so that if anyone comments I will be able to make a better one later. To date I have not read Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, though I intend to. As for the debate I've seen on the Fast Zombies vs. Slow Zombies, this guide is written with Slow Zombies in mind, for if they are really dead bodies they would have series body control issues, and under the assumption that the outbreak is a large one that would last several years at least.
Preparation: (what you did for Y2K)
If you are already preparing for a Zombie invasion, lets face it; you don't need this guide, and are probably a little crazy, like me. Preparing for a Zombie i
On a WindowsillI perch on your windowsillOn a Windowsill9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Long after you've drifted asleep,
When dusk has drunk its fill.
I posture as gargoyle,
Church-pew silent and stone-carved still,
Made mortal only by an evening breeze
Rustling aimlessly through
This suburban zoo
Of children's bikes and tended trees;
And as I watch the moon, and you,
I pose of her, "My lady fair,
Are you really so jealous of my view
That you must sit so pale, so far,
So stubbornly aloof-
When I think both of us know
The view is better from my roof."
But the moon is firefly breathless,
As she glowers, restless,
And the stars are all aglow.
And the stars are all aglow.
IsaacI saw your faceIsaac3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in the post office
It was one of those
eight by elevens
with black lettering,
It was an old picture
as if your chin
had not grown up yet
and your hair
framed your cheeks
as if to say
I, too, am a visitor.
They spelled your name wrong -
there are two A's in Isaac
and you looked
like you had been caught
wearing someone else's skin -
the scar at your temple
was a faded moon,
crescent and grey at the corner
and I could tell
you had not slept

I am waiting for you little taffer
My scream, my laughter
Will frighten you ever after
Only once, look at my eyes
You can see where the death lies
Even If you manage to leave here
You won't be able to get rid of the fear
I don't care why did you come or how
Hurry up, hurry up and JOIN US NOW!
For Jimmy Sullivan 'The Rev'Cold metal tableFor Jimmy Sullivan 'The Rev'6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Many times before supported the cages we call bodies
That once held the souls of the great and the lowly.
Some spend awhile here
Some spend only a short hour or so.
Sometimes fates are revealed
Others aren't so easy to determine.
A Y incision rimmed in crimson
Thin lines holding you together again
After they opened you up
Looking for what happened so suddenly
Artwork spread out over your pale flesh
A walking canvas painted by a mind
Soon set into skin
You never cared what anyone thought of you
You never edited anything you said.
Skilled hands found a way to match the beating of our hearts
In all your songs
Words that you wrote
Lifted us high above the world
Where we stood with the band
Vanquishing whatever fears we had
Behind your drum set.
You were you
We loved you.
We still love you.
We will always love you.
Hardly begin to describe what they feel
We feel the fringes of these things
We don't know you like they do
