Lost for the moment
in a reverie, maybe
past, maybe future
forms before his inner eye.
His person, the empty sky.

Look behind you.
"Are you okay?"
Shapes, forms, bodies, animals, plants
Shifting, moving, being
"What's wrong with you?"
You're a freak.
No one wants you.
You should kill yourself, let them out of their misery
Or we'll do the job for you.
"They're fake, you know."
No they're not.
"What are you doing?"
This is how I live.
Save me, from the monsters, the shadows
"What can I do?"
You can stop.
You can stop being ignorant
Target WeightI am afraid because I knowTarget Weight2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That I will never arrive
At a point where I am nourished
And emotionally satisfied
So to regulate my mood
I consume levels that disgrace
They suppose that this is greed
That assumption is misplaced
I’m addicted to the feeling
The short term stimulation
But that only makes me more prone
To those feelings of deflation
And stomach cramps and pains
Loose skin hanging from my bones
Eyes sinking into my skull
And those deathly grey skin tones
Will I ever fill the hole
Silence those voices for a while
I prepare my gut for sorrow
While I am spoon fed on denial
But life’s too much to digest
An acid reflux episode
Regurgitate my memories
Before my stomach explodes
In a culture such as ours
The blame lays nowhere but my plate
I chose the fats, sugars and salts
The impossible target weight
Now I’m afraid because I know
The end has already arrived
In the form of this addiction
To a staple we need to survive

They sat on that bench,
they struggled with tangled words
that refused to say
all the things they used to share.
They went their separate ways.

"That trial was tolling."
"Is it that obvious?"
Walter gave a sort of weary snort. He was as drained as I was, I could tell. He'd never been quite the same since
"The entire day was awful, to be honest," he mused dully, rubbing his eyes.
"You should sleep." I prayed he'd listen. But he knew me too well. Far too well.
"Where do you plan on sneaking off to, Majesty?" I lowered my eyes from his steady gaze and affixed my own on my trembling hands. "Amelia, little rabbit You can't be thinking of going to find Elliot."
That blasted stinging! I was already crying! How could I be such a simpering, bloody sot? Swearing I rose to my feet, and as Walter began to lecture I could no longer bear it.
"I have to know!" I exclaimed, whirling about to face the old general. I forced my voice to soften. "I have to know. I love him, Walter. I love him."
I knew that face it was the face he'd worn the day I'd asked him to teach me how to fight. Utter bewilderment. He

Who knows how long later, your [e/c] eyes snap open. The first thing you see is the moon through an open skylight. The second, a roaring fire. The third, is Jack.
He doesn't notice you're awake though. His head is in his hands, silvery-white hair poking out between his fingers. Your fingers and head are throbbing along with the beating of your heart, but you don't care.
"Jack!" You exclaim, successfully getting his attention. He raises his head, practically disbelieving at first, then when he sees you sitting up with your eyes open, a smile slowly makes an entrance onto his face. The teenage boy rushes over, sweeping you into his arms as you sob, "Jack, I thought that I would never see you again! I thought that I would become like him!" You bury your face into his chest as his hand graces your lower back that trembles from your crying.
"Shh, shh, it's okay. You see me now, I'm here now… You're too st

Your heart was not made to bleed
Let go, my precious, your sorrow
If you can't find yours, my smile you can borrow
Calm down, let your anger subside
Search for the love burried deep inside
Take my hand, I will not let go
I will always be here, you know
Calm down, look and see
Your smile means life to me
Don't let the smile die
If it does, so will I

Disclaimer: If I owned Mass Effect things would be different.
"Did you know they used you in the recruitment ads?"
"Give me a minute."
"Okay." And Joker sat down next to one of the railings keeping the stars at bay and closed his eyes because he'd seen her too. He didn't need a second look.
Kaiden needed the second look. (He hadn't gotten it over Alchera, after all.) Joker watched Kaidan's boots walk away. Poor lovestruck biotic.
Not that it wasn't weird seeing her face up on that hologram, advertising Honor and Duty and the Alliance. Not that there wasn't something wrong about the fact that the recruiters were using her. She'd sold her body to t

That's all I'll ever be
Once you've learnt that
Defining fact about me.
You'll call me mad
Assume that I'm sad
And that I want
You'll check my arms
Only matters if you can see
But I can hide them
All over me.
You'll think I'm sick
Sick in the head
And that makes me feel
Like I want to be dead.
I don't do it
I don't do it
For a mention
I don't do it
I do it because of
That it's cast over me.
Illusion of needGod is just an illusion of needIllusion of need5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A creation of souls that easily bleed
A comfort for people too weak to try
Living when they know that they will die
For religions God is a useful tool
He allows the wise to rule over the fool
A way to gather around you the weak
The warm light of a lie they all seek
Shackles for those who are too free
Control of what man calles equality
A way to get inside each persons mind
Illusions of free will for puppets, blind

Into infinite concentric ripples
Water seeping slowly down
I hear the water hit the pool
And break the silence
As it echoes around the cave
A reminder of the droplet's last act
Drip, the water continues to
Drop, into the pool and fade
Like the tears that wash away
The sadness of another day
Will never do
