distant tail lights
like dreaming dancers across the grass.
all the sounds are sad like midnight air
in my lungs, on my tongue,
in the desert there.
we're stepping silent down the road,
asphalt cold under our toes,
a thousand eyes up in the sky-
we're being watched, and
that's how you feel when there's

when i know now that i have lost.

this was just an easy win?
how could i have thought

i was so sure i would be
pain-free. now i'm hurting myself.

Laughter filled the cold winter air,
as the two young students ran through the thick snow after a good day at school,
happily holding hands.
After running for what felt like forever the two boys finally collasped
to the white grassy surface out of breath,
still giggling away.
"That was fun." squeaked the small raven haired boy.
The rebel looking dredlocked boy could only giggle at the other boys cute comment.
The both lay there together still holding hands enjoying each others company,
while watching the snow gently fall onto there pink cheeks.
Letting time slip through there fingers.
It was getting late..
Suddenly the dark haired boy spoke up.
"Do you think.. we'll be friends forever.?"
A smile spread across Tom's face.
"Without a doubt my little Billa."
Bills face lite up with glee and wrapped his arms around his best buddie,
snuggling into the crook of his neck.
He loved his best friend, but most of all he adored Bill just being Bill.

the inside of her mind is a spanish lullaby
just gentle chords strung into a
beautiful tapestry of sound. her skin
smells of oranges and cloves, and her hair is
cinnamon brown. she reminds you of
the feeling of waking up in the morning,
thirsty. she is the song you play for
every kind of weather
every kind of mood. you feel her
fingers on your cheek when you sleep,
you dream she's there with you. and even
when she's far away,
you hear her like the voice of a flute.
a haunting sound carried on
the wind, past hills and fields and
home to you.

made of pools that ripple when they blink,
and shed droplets that wash up onto
her riverbank cheeks

river girl, hands soft that will
gently tug you under

soft swells in the bed of sand.
she's hollow and yet full of
sorrow, with silvery
fish swimming in and out between
her ribs. with lips like seaweed
that caress you, your wrist
your shoulder, your

body, like a lover
she'll always hold you-
always trap you.
untamed, she is
unwanted. unloved, she is the
lonely river girl.

Bill turned around to recieve a face full of fist.
His fragile body fell against the hard lockers and onto the cold floor.
'Why?' 'why do they always hurt me still?...'
Tears began to fill up in Bill's eyes.
He tryed to hide them from rolling down his bruised face,
Wishing that this would stop happening to him.
The big brutal boy started to laugh with his head held high.
"That right, go cry emo kid!"
The boy then walked off disappearing around the corner leaving Bill on the floor crying.
Luckily for Bill school had ended so nobody else was able to torture him and further.
But that didn't make him feel any better.
Ever since the day when Bill lost Tom everyone blamed him for his best friends death,
calling him a murderer.
He was only 12 with a fragile soul that could easily be broken.
Now that four years have past the bullying still goes on.. would they ever live it down?
Bill knew full well that he would do anything to save his friend.
Heck, he would even jump infront

my arms stretched long and my hair turned to leaves.
i'm dying, dying to be alive, but all the rain is all grey
with sincerity. they don't hide; the cloud people. instead,
they hide you. and so i've lost the sun for so long,
and the stars, and your smile is only timid memory.
if i let my feet roam as they pleased, they would never stop
until they were before you. over cool clover and through smooth streams.
over the through and river the woods. step step step dance. never fly,
i'm bound to the ground by my toes. i'll run, though. run through
curtains of wind and away until my pulse no longer
blocks my ears and i can hear silence again.

musical, thoughtful, smiling.
you're a dream within a dream, and all heartbeats,
and gentle movements in your sleep.
i swear songs sleep behind your eyelids and in your veins-
as you play guitar up and down my arm i hold my breath,
careful not to move, careful not to wake you
(or us) from this pleasant summer night.
all the sweetest memories we make,
dipped in moonlight or laced with candlelight,
kept safe in mind to be smiled upon tenderly
i can't think of you without my heart taking flight,
and my hand craving yours.
the hours are empty without you, empty like
the lingering smell of blown out candles,
or the hush after a long solemn rain.
somehow the faraway thunder is comforting,
and the silent lightning just another blink.
just another heartbeat buried in your chest-
here i'll always find it safe to rest my head.

to press my fingertips to your lips-

A star shines in the deep
A promise I hope you'll keep
A light in the darkness,
A love that is boundless
You leave me breathless
Wrap me in your arms and hold me tight
Please protect me from the night
Wish away my hopes and fears,
And always remain to dry my tears
Will you stay through my darker years?
Take me to a place
Where I don't have to save face
Make me burst at the seams
Don't forget how my eyes gleam
You are the subject of my dreams.

I miss you so much
I don't know how I could have lost you
It wasn't the things we said
It was the things left unsaid
I can't believe I'll never talk to you
Or laugh with you
Or just stare at you from afar and think
Yeah that's him
I refuse to think that we'll never be together
And my friends will never tease me every time I blush
Or ask how we're doing
I wish I could have told you
All the things that were concealed in my heart
And written in my journal for only my eyes
If I could I'd see you once more
I'd hug you before you could speak
And I'd give you the kiss I've been saving for you
But I know that I'll never be able to
Never, that word strangles me
Even as the tears fall all I can think of is you
If you're reading this and if you're out there
I just want you to know that I love you
And I'm sorry

We may be kids but we are tough
We live how we want and do what we please
We are the children of the peas
Go ahead and laugh, we feed off scorn
We're just as bad as those kids o' corn
'Cause they're just stalks blowing in the breeze
But we're the children of the peas
So technically our folks aren't dead
We asked them to leave and they went ahead
But we'll still bring you to your knees
'Cause we're the children of the peas
We know you mock us, but you'll believe
We'll come to your town and you'll want us to leave
Heed my words, I do not tease
Fear the children of the peas

DisownAnd it broke my heart but IDisown4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
killed every trembling thing. The yearning
spaces subsided, they were reddened, they
were convinced to stillness.
And it broke my heart but God
became God-in-exile, became
yearning spaces. I buried my demons
with a knife, and left them to it. Exile
was the new love, it was a barren land,
it took no prisoners.
And it broke my heart but the pieces
hardened, they were as clockworks,
they counted down the hours. I was
waiting, my body was a sharp angle,
a border, I was waiting, everything
had already happened, I had killed it,
it drifted through the motionless diaspora,
the hours turned on me and they had teeth.

Pakistan is my home. It's your home too; you were raised up on its soil. You grew up here out of the resource it had to offer you, you ate the food grown here offered to you, lived in the homes built here offered to you, were cared for by the people who lived here and wanted to care for you. By Pakistan I don't mean the dead land and its border. That's just a bit of earth. Pakistan is the living, throbbing collection of people. Pakistan is you and me, and all the people within this borderland who form this nation and have made it what it is. You don't live on a Pakistan. You are a piece of it. Whenever you go somewhere else you are still a bit of Pakistan. And whether you like it or not, you have taken from it. You've taken from it your friends, your houses, your food, your clothes, your possessions anything you have that was made in Pakistan, you've taken from it. That's why you owe it and have to repay it. If you don't, you are a thief and nothing more.
You go, fed and
