Ali and Matt arrived only five minutes after the party started, and already the school's parking lot was full. They had to park in the parking lot of the old trading warehouse next door. But Ali didn't mind the walk, despite the fact that there was no sidewalk and the ground was uneven, causing her to twist her ankle a few times. Matt kept her entertained. He was charming and funny. In the back of her mind, Ali wondered why Sam thought he was so terrible.
The school gym was full of people, dancing, laughing, and shouting over the awesome DJ set up on the doors opposite them. Jessica and Peter, as well as the rest of their group, attacked them as they entered. They were thrilled to see each other.
The dance turned out to be great. Ali forgot all about Sam. She danced and ate pizza and laughed with friends and had the best time. Finally, when the night was over, Matt walked her back out to the car.
"I had a great time," Ali smiled.
"Me too," Matt grinned.

Am ieșit azi în oraș. Printre oameni. Plouă mărunt și atmosfera e încărcată de gânduri.
Caldarâmul a devenit umed și alunecos și pietrele unei străzi de pe vremea romanilor au o reflexie de obsidian șlefuit de pașii atâtor trecători.
Oamenii se propagă de-a lungul unei străzi înguste și mă lovesc involuntar de ei.
O doamnă în vârstă, tristă, îmbrăcată elegant, trece pe lângă mine. Îmi feresc capul de umbrela ei imensă, neagră, dar nu destul de repede... îmi ia gâtul și carotida sângereaza abundent, o floare roșie, neașteptată, în după-amiaza gri. Oamenii tresar, incomodaţi de pata de pe caldarâm. Unii mormăie aceleași cuvinte de nemulţumire pe care le aud
I, you, Everyone elseI, you, Everyone else5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I cant hear your voice anymore because it makes me happy and secure and Im not used to those feelings..
I shouldn't see your face anymore because I have already memorized all its beautiful lines and pink shades..
I am forbidden to touch your hand because the last time I did my heart ricochetted inside me and it nearly killed me ..
I must never smell your scent again because it causes damage to my brain, and I lose myself sometimes forever..
And never again spend time with you because I respect you and appreciate you and it makes us both happy and we shouldnt..
But the whole world can hear your voice without really listening to it..
Anyone passing by your office can see your face without noticing the pink shad
+Crave.Her hand, in mine, was warm and soft. And I have to admit, I was scared.+Crave.6 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
There were people everywhere. People I knew. People who could judge. People who, if they noticed, would turn up their nose and look down upon me as long as I lived.
I hate being judged.
So, I was scared.
I twitched my fingers, nervously, weaving them through hers. I needed this. I craved it, the very feeling. I needed someone else's skin in contact with mine. I needed contact. I needed someone. My hand was sore, raw, raw with the absolute need to fulfill this craving that had been denied of me for over a month. Her hand was soft, ladylike, my hand was dry, and rough. Her hand moved, slightly, and I gave it a gentle squeeze.
I was lost, lost in the projection on the screen. There were names, sounds, words coming out of the speaker, flowing through my ear and my brain to be t
The Person I AmWho is the person I was yesterday?The Person I Am6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A person with undying love for the wrong people
She loved everyone besides me
I sat by as they got what I wanted
He never knew what I felt
I was always afraid of rejection
Now what do I have to show?
A problem I must deal with on my own.
Who is the person I am today?
A person who is prepared for her responsabilities
Take care of what belongs to me
I have to step up and do what is right
Only the truth comes out
I will not let lies slip from my lips
Now what will I have to prove?
A problem won't bring me down to their level.
Who is the person I will be tomorrow?
A person who is an enigma to those aro
Satiated SpiritSatiated Spirit6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How can one contemplate
The many ways to satiate
Never know how much it takes
Or how little effort to make
From the dark the sparks will emanate
The spirit, its power will overtake
Take your time, its okay
For its willing captor, it patiently awaits
More than just lust, it fast awakes
So fierce the fire, you levitate
From its hold you cant escape
It cloaks you with its silken cape
You can try all you can
But this one you cannot abate
You've invited it in, so with you it stays
No one knows where it originates
As old as time, yes immortal to date
With its will, it sends a quake
One look inebriates
One touch prolongs, or seals your fate
Living, breathing, moving its way
Making it a mission to have you elated
There is no more fighting
Come night or come day
Just succumb to the energy, even though you pray
Forget about winning and just give way
Missing YouHere we are againMissing You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So far apart
Here I am again
With a broken heart
Wondering if this time
We really have divorced
Feeling as though my crimes
Were the brunt of the source
Of our relationships demise
You're so far away
With your family
I'm right here to say
I wish you were with me
I feel your presence
Surrounding my thoughts
Wanting the abundance
That my relationship sought
I feel your soul
Connected with mine
There is now a hole
I know it will heal
I know I will laugh
I know I will feel
I know I will take a bath
I know my life is great
I know I have friends
But that doesn't change
Me missing my best friend

A Riorti Story
The next morning, Sam and Ali walked to school together, Jake in tow. Sam hadn't told Ali about his suspicions about who Scarlett's inside man was. He knew it would only spark a fight. He knew he'd have to tell her eventually, but for now, he did his best to keep her in the dark.
When they got to school, Sam and Jake headed upstairs to the senior hallway, while Ali stayed on the main floor in the sophomore hallway. Sam cringed when he saw Ali met up with Matt, but he kept his mouth shut and continued upstairs.
Meanwhile, Ali and Matt had joined a big group of their friends. They were all talking about how excited they were for summer, how much finals, and studying for finals, sucked, and the end-of-the-year dance at the end of the week. It was then that Matt spoke up.
"Hey, Ali, can I talk to you for a second?" he asked, his signature goofy grin plastered on his face.
"Sure," Ali shrugged, not thinking much of it. They wandered away from the group, talking about r
LeavingYou say you want meLeaving3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And all it seems
Is you want a pillow
To fall on
When the me
Isn't the me you
Want me to be
I start fights
I end fights
That's your guarantee
I'll get a fight
I might not get
At the end of the tunnel
But you'll fight
And show you might
Give me love
The second you show
You run and hide
behind your excuse.
You might feel silly
Showing the sentiment
But its endearing when
It peeks over the
Edge of your war wall
You leave me
Don't look back!
You might lend
The notion of someone
Who cares about the soul
Inside the body
Doing the best she can
Face your fear
And grant your ear
The mercy of a loving word
I never left you
I always loved you
What you don't seem to get
Is that this me
You can't even see
Is about to leave to be
Where she can find
That she needs

Hate is love
Love hurts like a cut on your hand
Hate hurts like a broken hand
Childhood crushes hurts like a bee sting
Teen love hurts like a car crash
True love hurts like your heart is bleeding out
True hate hurts like a scar that won't heal
Fake love feels like you're about to faint
Fake true love,
Isn't love at all

ZileTe speli pe dinţi de dimineaţă,Zile10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
zâmbești oglinzii solitar,
uiţi robinetul... îţi vezi pieptul
cu coaste fine de ogar
Mănânci fără prea multă poftă
ceva ce-a fost odată pui,
îţi iei pantofii de sub masă
și haina ruptă dintr-un cui
Te duci la lucru, vii acasă,
fără să faci din nou nimic,
îţi faci curaj și-ţi zici că poate
de mâine-ai să lucrezi un pic
Şi obosit, frustrat, pe gânduri,
citești un rând, adormi târziu
și te trezești de dimineaţă
de trei ori mort, o dată viu.
My SecretI miss you all the timeMy Secret7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Even though I've never held you.
I dream about you, but I've never seen your face.
I wonder if it's okay
Is this right?
This is my secret to keep.
It's only mine to share.
If I choose, I'd give it all to you.
But I know, this will never be more then it is.
Why do I let you get to me, in the ways you do?
I hate how we both care, but hold so much back.
I wonder what you'd ask of me if you could
But, this is my secret to keep.
You and me, that's my own private fantasy.
I always want what I can't have
And I know I will never have all of you.
But my deepest secret is
You have anything and everything you want from me.
markings on your skinI forgot these memoriesmarkings on your skin9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Screams echo from years past
I can't hear these dark dreams
But the scars will always last
Shadows clear for awhile
Hiding nothing in their game
The sun sets, the lights dim
These marks stay the same
Golden lyrics sing to me
In the grass children play
Scratches still dance on this skin
At the end of the day
You can't hide from yourself
Or forget where you've been
The guilt and shame is always hidden
In the markings on your skin
What Surrounds MeOpen my mind to this world,What Surrounds Me9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ive never disappeared before,
Now I find myself loosing hold,
of my insanity and soul.
This power that I now hold,
Cannot be controlled,
I wish to plunge myself into the darkness,
Until I am no more.
The darkness that I now face,
Is now Reality,
You cannot stop these forces,
And I cannot be freed.
My soul is locked into this place,
Ive chased the souls of many,
And all of them are now free....

Take me to hell
Take me to that place below
Where the demons dwell
Take me to that horrible place
Where the fallen angel fell.
Take me down to the blood bath
Where evil patiently waits
Take me where they use our souls
As evil wicked baits.
Take me now and leave me
In the arms of dead
Take me please I'm begging
Take me to where you dread.
Take me underneath the ground
Where my soul I can sell
Please just take me right now
Take me to hell.

Bittersweet RoseBittersweet RoseBittersweet Rose9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
By: Adam Maloney
A bittersweet rose
So beautiful, fragile
It falls to the ground
With your blood on the thorn
Which has torn open your hand
It's obvious that this is
Not part of your plan
So fall on your knees
And rejoice and say please
As the demons dance through
To the depths
The vase is shattered on the floor
Unsure and quite fragile
Easy to rip open
A crucified head now
From which all words were spoken
His arm and his legs
Are all twisted and mangled
Yet still he holds on
As his life it lets out
Please kill him and end
All his suffering
This vase is shattered on the floor
The scent ever tantalize
It is such an enterprise
Satan is laughing
God smiles on queue
Your clothes do not fit now
All colors lost hue
The day bleeds to night
As my hand bleeds for you
And tears like rain fall
My vase is shattered on the floor
On a gray stormy day
The rose drifted away
And the dread flood rose up

wathcing in the shadows, hes laughing cant you see?!

i give you the right to freedom i give you the voice
choke on my stories, my fairytale lands
ill heal you with sugar encoated hands

without me your nothing, crimson ends
and we leave in a ship that sales in your prayers
on a river of scarifice, for something not there

Why would they lie
This is it
My last goodbye
I'll write a note
And mail it away
Without a stamp
With nothing to say
This is my last goodbye
I'll tell you I love you
Though it wasn't returned
I'll tell you be happy
Though I never learned
This is my last goodbye
Thanks for being there
Thanks for pretending
But I'm not your charity case
I'm not worth mending
This is my last goodbye
I'll pack my bags
With no were to go
..And try to return
But you'll never know
My last goodbye
Stumble and fall
To die lonely
I'm sorry I left
I'm sorry you cried
I tried to come back
The night I died
Blood in the grass
Birds in the trees
Whisper I love you
Lost in the breeze
That was my last goodbye
Within The EyesWithin The Eyes6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Something wicked this way comes
From within your soul this night
Reaching out to me so dark
It causes me to take flight
Sinister, or luring, innocent or no
It tempts me with it's silken touch
It rocks me to and fro as I run
Away from it's brooding lusts
Within the eyes of a lover
One hopes to know what dwells
The mystery that shields the depths of their soul
And the secrets they'll never tell
Within the eyes of a stranger
I can see past forever
The dark, the soil, the light, the power
Of every dream and endeavor
Lurking behind the eyes so deep
Something waits to pull you in
Far past the colors that cloak it's true nature
Be it innocence or be it sin
I surrender to the power you wield
While you flash your silver grin
Seeing into the deepest regions
Of your eyes and everything within.
