It's funny how a few letters
Strung together by spaces
Can be so meaningful
Can roll off the tongue so easily
Can make me so happy
It's funny how we are given three names
Which all sound so generic
So many joes, johns, sarahs, amandas, marias, billys, matts, adams, caitlins, ryans

You're watching the clouds fly by
I'm watching time run away, dragging the clouds with it
You wish on a star

You lay down on the sidewalk because you're tired

I lay down because I love the feeling of drowning in my own gravity
You mock a lonely girl in the corner of the room

Heavy Metal coupleSo there's this story, see? These two guys were walking in the woods. One of them was a blond, his hair was all big and fluffy with big brown eyes, he had a blue bandanna wrapped around his neck, a Megadeth t-shirt on, and tight jeans, his name was David. The other guy, Chris, had black teased hair and blue eyes, a Metallica t-shirt, black fingerless gloves, cowboy boots, and tight black leather pants. These guys appeared to be a Heavy Metal gay couple. They looked like opposites even in height but they were very much in love.Heavy Metal couple2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I razed the blonde threads,
Watching as they fell to the cold bathroom floor.
They kept me warm for so long,
They kept me here.
I remember that boy with the mane,
The smile, the sparkle.
I'm not that boy anymore.
He died there, in that cold room.
He disappeared between the razor and the floor.
And I got up from the cold floors,
Ran my finger along the line of soft points,
And strode outside.

This is what she craves. The loss of yourself and the finding of something more. The thrill being swept away.
It's odd she supposes, that she finds this serenity when bodies are crashing into hers and her eardrums are slowly being stabbed numb. But, this is all she has ever known. The happiness of music that connects strangers and families and cultures and lovers.
Her lover. Onstage and the most mind-breakingly gorgeous thing she has ever seen. Alive and not drowning

I wasn't addicted to the drug, itself. I was addicted to the lifestyle: nightclubs, the music; the dancing; the bright lights; the fashion.
I was a loner, a naïve eighteen year old, looking for more friends in this world. Most of the time I would go to clubs with my friends, but on most occasions they wouldn't want to go to the clubs that I wanted to. They didn't mind going to hear the same kind of music that was played repetitively on the radio's top 40 countdown. I was into hard trance, and my friends were into pop, so I would go to these clubs alone.
There is one Saturday night I will never forget. I was getting

A Boring Essay about a Boring Topic by Wanda
Okay, no one wants to read about grammar. It's boring. It has no plot, no characterization, no humor or tragedy or drama, and let's all admit now that you fell asleep in class during the grammar lecture.
But let's face it. Schools are cutting grammar from the curriculum, because apparently kids know it all, what with all the "OMG so kawaii i luv u sooooooo much" etc. hanging around our society.

The people at Disney.The amount of people in Florida is astounding considering the spastic rain showers, suffocating humidity, and overpriced soft drinks. Such things would keep me away from this state, and yet people gravitate to it. The attraction is undeniably theme parks and the beaches, two admirable qualities of Florida that cannot be overlooked. But it's exactly these two sites that cause the strangest humans to emerge. In just one week, I have encountered these people and, unfortuantely, had to interact with them.

People who judge us for being metalheads.
First, they label us for what we wear.
Parents AUTOMATICALLY assume were "thugs" because we wear black almost all the time
(a very stupid steriotype that only works in the 1950's)
Some tell us we look 'dirty' because we wear baggy jeans, camo shorts, leather jackets, band tshirts etc...
Most of them are "gangsters". Which is ironic because they wear Nike Cortezes that look so bat fucking dirty!!
For Pete's sake some of em don't even bath!!

I know most people in our generation don't listen to metal.

as i fall further into her gifts and purity of perfection

Perfect WomanThe ideal woman portrayed by the media in America today is a permiscouous, tall, skinny, blond 20 year old ditzy model, computer enhanced to "perfection." It's embarrassing that the first image of attractiveness that comes to mind is a faux - someone who only exists on shiny magazine pages - a person with no personality except percieved coquettishness. Of course, there's always an alternative; some of us repect intelligence, serenity, independence, talent, or the presence of vital organs in a woman (eg. heart and liver) because the truth is: people aren't perfect and none of us are the same.
