The Way You LiedShe loved to hear you talk. She used to be able to sit there and listen for hours. Life was good when you weren't screaming, yelling, or cussing at her. Because you were always sorry. And you meant it. Because you loved her. And she loved you. She remembers wanting to leave here. Anywhere was better than here, because you loved her when you weren't yelling at her. You listened to her, understood her. Felt for her, sympathized.The Way You Lied3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
She swore up and down, all her life, she'd never let a man treat her the way her father treated her mother. She was strong, and she didn't deserve that from anyone. For the longest time, no one did. Then she met you. She was ashamed to love you, because all her life, she hadn't been good enough. But there you were, there for her, and willing to insist it was she that you wanted, and no one else. So she believed, for once, that she was good enough.
The first time you shouted at her, you apologized right after. Told her you didn't mean the ugly things you told her,

An always open window allows circulation. Wind filters through, dispersing through a room plagued by disarray. Oxygen enters the nostrils, air particles reeking of musk and dust and memories caked onto the floor.
Because why sweep away dirt, why even disinfect the the filth? If it could dredge up cherished times of singing drunken stupors? If it could revive the words shouted to the stars in an anarchistic rage?

What did she do to me
I think I truly love her
But I'm limited to what i see
Her eyes are just so beautiful
Hazel with a dash of green and blue
I haven't heard her voice yet
but maybe that wish'll come true
She writes these awesome poems
That I'd love to read all day
But then i wouldn't talk to her
And I'd keep my feeings at bay
Now at the end of this poem
I'm absolutley sure
All I am trying to say is
the one I love is her

Depleting the oxygen as they flew away
And in their silence
my knees attach themselves to blackened soil
to the al.oneness of their owner's sins
They hold onto what prints of life they can find
As flesh surrounding them gives into the stillness
to the meat that is torn away
to the bone upon bone of brittle gazes
that burn into a soul not meant to exist...
Fingers pointing at me
Reminding me of the shadows I once knew
The spine is lost

Islam is incredible
To be a little suitable
Quran is lyrical and truthful
Humble when I read it
Humble when ever I hear it
Islam is a way of life
Islam is my way of life
Islam is the only truth in this life
Now tell me whats right
Mistaken for the wrong mind
Just let the creatures
And the human preachers take all the wounds of this nature
Too hard on paper!
God did give you the past the present and the future written
All you got to do is look into it and start pitching
And if your ashamed of the way you livin
Open the doors of Islam and youll be full of blessings

I don't want to suppress something of myself.
I don't want to fake it anymore.

I Wish Life Was a Cartoon...I Wish Life Was a Cartoon...6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wish life was a cartoon,
Were my school was a litteral zoo,
I would visit my friends on the moon,
Were every Friday there is something new.
I really would want that soon.
I sometimes want to cry,
When all my hope is gone,
But my imaginary friends would be by my side,
To sing me a sad song.
With the Grim Reaper would be my personal slave.
Hed bring me drinks all day,
The consequences are grave,
but I'd stand up and try to say,
"I want my life as a cartoon; and I want it to happen today."
I want to fight adult tyranny,
and reign as a supreme authority
All those who withstand me?
I'll just bribe them with candy.
I want to sleep the day away,
Dreaming of car chases and taking flight,
In my bed I would lay,
I would dream all day and all night.
The sun would sing a tune,
The clouds floating with glee,
The flowers would hum when they bloom,
Smiles as far as I can see.
The trees would greet me with preps,
And then high-five me fast,
And the grass will complain of my s
Review-rant of twilightI was bored and felt the need to write this out. First off, I have read all the Twilight books. Three times actually. I wanted to know why some people would say that Its the best book ever!! and SMeyer is a genius! etc. After reading the quartet for the third time, I still think its just an Anne Rice AU fan fiction gone horribly, horribly wrong.Review-rant of twilight5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For now Im going to write a review for just the book Twilight. Later if I feel like it, Ill do the other three. So lets do this.
SMeyer starts off by telling us all the details of Bellas departure. First off, a good writer will show you what she wants you to know. They wont tell you every little detail about what the character is wearing and the weather in the city and ZZZZ its boring!
Also, right away I was put off by Bella because she has this façade of Oh Im so self-sacrificing for my mother but at the same time she is whining about it.

The music flowed out of the small radio/alarm clock Otera used most often, with the clicks and crinkles that would confuse her younger sister, the second one. Otera understood the song on a level her little sister never would be able to. Otera was a child of the 90s, but her younger sister wasn't. The thudding of little elephant steps on the stairs up to Otera's room warned Otera of her younger sister's oh-so-stealthy approach, so she hit the stop button on the clock-radio, turning off the music. Tigre, Otera's sister, came you with a small scowl because the computer wasn't working, one that almost made Otera laugh, as the computer was: a) turned off, b) unplugged, and c) disconnected from the internet. "Otera, the computer won't work! I can't play!" Tigre complained. Otera frowned, what

"Michael Jackson buries them all!"
The music world lost a legend today...
At one point, he was considered a god among men.
He serenaded the world with his smooth voice...
Dazzled the world with amazing dancing skills...
And won over the hearts of millions.
Now...all of that is but a fond memory.
As the King of Pop...has died.
Though he may be gone in flesh and blood,
His soulful spirit will continue to live on.
Aspiring musicians and music artists will carry the torch,
And older music vets will, somehow, pay homage to him.
RIP Michael Jackson - August 28th, 1958 to June 25th, 2009

(This part is played slowly with acoustic guitar and vocals only. Its sung to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic.)
Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the burning of the school
We have tortured every teacher
We have broken every rule
We have sat in every corner
Of the whole damn school
As truth is marching on
Glory, glory, Hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a ruler
I met her at the door
With a loaded 44
As truth is marching on
(Actual song begins here)
My parents and the government say
An education is great
I watch as my family waves good bye
As Im marched right through the gate
Then they turn around and lock the door
Im going to be bored forever more
Because schools like a prison but with less ass rape

They put you into a crowded cell
With a bunch of people
Whore noisy and who smell
You have no chance for par
The Guide to PrepsTHE GUIDE TO PREPSThe Guide to Preps9 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Regular prep: A person who normally conciders themself higher than everyone else, almost all of them are females. They can be nice or bitchy, but most of the time bitchy. A prep (or preppy) will normally get good grades that they don't really deserve, and will constantly socialize instead of doing proper work.
Midget preps: This is not saying that everyone who's short is a prep, but rather, shorter preps seem to be the most annoying. They seem to think that they are SPECIAL and that everyone should BOW DOWN TO THEM and crap similar to that. When in reality, it makes them look pretty stupid threatening someone much larger than them. X3
Okay preps: These preps are one of the few "nice" preps. They still act similar, but they don't really bug you if you don't bug them. Basically, they're the ones who don't scream at you, give you stupid looks, or insult you unless you do something like that to them. If you think you may be this kind of prep, good fo
ToleranceBefore the Bible was writtenTolerance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
People danced around fires
Animals were worshipped
The earth was respected and revered
Before priests blessed damned children
Spirits possessed bodies
And caused miracles
Healing what Holy Water could not
Before marriage was dictated
Love was boundless
Man and woman, woman and woman, man and man
The Gods cared only for true love
Before Church said what is good and evil
The Gods watched with grateful eyes
Luna guided in the night
Sol lit the sky for those who danced
Before witches burned for others amusement
Before Thor was a heathen
And Gaia a piece of rock
Valhalla was Heaven
Since I am represented by the pentacle
Those under me are heathens, outcasts
Even black sheep
But they follow me with pride
Even though you say 'to each their own'
Why do you seem to contradict?
See me for what I truly am
Not what your book says I am
Provided that you stole from me
Yule, Samhain, the coming of Spring
And twisted my tales
I am not bitter
Provided that you took my creed
The Mary SuesOnce upon a time, in the clouds above the land of deviantART.com, there was a small clan of original characters that were yet to be used in stories. One by one, they were sent down to aspiring writers to cause them trouble. No, they weren't special or memorable. In fact, there was a dirty name for them. And this name was a "Mary Sue".The Mary Sues5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The Mary Sues were responsible for mass flaming, lulz, and Encyclopedia Dramatica articles which made the authors infamous. The thing was, with the Mary Sue's hypnotizing powers, they could convince the writer that they were the best character they had ever come up with.
Besides that, almost everyone else hated Mary Sues, except for the store in the mall, Hot Topic, because the store gets several new customers as a result, because most Mary Sues do indeed promote following the Goth subculture.
But there were several other types of Mary Sues as well, which included characters who lost both their parents to mechanical rice pickers, characters who were effor

1. She brought back plaid.
For that alone she should be thrown in jail. Plaid is fashionable for lumber jacks. I don't take fashion advice from sweaty dirty men who haul wood thankyouverymuch. Bringing something into style that is as ugly as plaid is a criminal offence for which she needs to be punished. Because you just KNOW the redneck white trash girls are just SHITTING themselves over this. It's like they found a kindred spirit or something. I can't wait for the camouflage. Because when that day comes, I'll be in another country. Preferably Germany. With the hot guys who have the awesome hair.
