A poemI thought you cared, I thought you knew how I feel about youA poem6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But apparently you knew nothing about the pain I'm going through
Though my pain is easy to see, you just walked right past me
Not even a sympathetic look, which is all it took for me to feel happy.. at least for a while
Until my thoughts drift back to black and what reality really is
You didn't love me, you never cared. These thoughts make me scared, even though they're true
Even so, I still love you!

"That is not true, you are a liar!" Hatchworth could be heard yelling from the kitchen, "Just taste mine, it is better!"
Rabbit stops by the doorway and peers in. Hatchworth was arguing with the toaster oven and was trying to shove a freshly pressed panini in it.
Tick tick tick.
"U-Uh, Hatchy? Whatcha doin'?" Rabbit takes a few steps into the kitchen and looks over his shoulder at the offending appliance, his eyes going wide for a moment. "Hey th-there, pretty lady." He gives her a wink.
"No, Rabbit, you can not. We are in the middle of a disagreement." Hatchworth steps between Rabbit and the oven, blocking his view of her.
"Well, uh, I could h-help." Rabbit comments offhandedly, trying to move Hatchworth over.
He stands strong, "Would you be fair?"
"Cross your boiler, hope to permanently-shut-down?"
Rabbit eyes him suspiciously, "Okay."
Tick tick tick.
"Then you will have to judge who is better." Hatchworth shoves the hot sandwich into

You'll have to scrub a lot harder

Your code of morale.
They dance with your enemies
and hide in their closets.
Smiling as they poke at your weaknesses,
they flaunt their strength in front of your eyes,
laughing when you crumble
Watch them as they live the life you only wish you could have.
Hide behind your beliefs
If you think it will save you.
DisguiseYoure not fooling anyone in that disguise.Disguise7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your scornful eyes show behind the contacts,
and the halo doesnt cover the horns.
Your face is still charred with battles lost,
knees still dirty from falling down.
Your smile is faltering at the edges
and it doesnt quite reach your eyes.
The threadbare lace isnt so handsome
when you stand in the light.
Take a look in the mirror,
Your mask is falling off.

The makings of a soul,
The power of oneself,
The makings of emotions,
Rage and anger flows within all,
No where to run,
No where to hide,
Fire will find you in your deepest thought,
Fire will find you in your most sacred sanctuary,
Strength and power wanted and admired by all,
Earth is used by all,
Earth is wanted by all,
Wisdom and thought envyed by all,
Earned by the stronged willed,
A hair away by the slow and sloth,
Wind brings hope and dreams,
Wind brings tears and end,
Courage and bravery,
Given to only few,
Billions that are in need,
Water is plenty,
yet is so Scarce,
These four elements,
Were the universes tools for making,
These four elements,
Were god's tools for us,
These four elements...

Forgive MeI used you.Forgive Me8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I used your heart.
To make me feel good.
I wasn't supposed to fall in love with you.
I wasn't supposed to feel,
like I can't breathe when I'm not near you.
I wasn't supposed to feel the ache in my stomach.
That ache that makes you sick,
because you think of someone.
I knew what I was doing,
And I cry.
I cry knowing what I did.
How could I,
Play this game,
Over and over again.
How could I
Play this game with you.
For I know not what I do.
The FieldSo many pretty coloursThe Field6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many shiny lights
What am I doing here?
How'd I get here tonight?
I'm in the middle of a field
I'm looking at the stars
The sunset is just fading
Leaving clouded scars
You're laying there beside me
You're holding my hand
I think that you're asleep
But this night is just so grand
Then you whisper softly
And I know that you're awake
"I could stay here forever" you say
"For as long as forever takes"
I'm hoping this isn't a dream
Because it's just so real
The way the stars look down
And how they make me feel
The night sky is so amazing
And believe me, so are you
I wonder if I'll fall asleep
And awake in morning dew
You are still holding my hand
And I know everything's alright
So lets you and I just stay here
Together in this field until mornin' light

Lost, wanting to drown.
Leave it all and live in quiet,
Impossible, until dawn.
I feel myself fall into black.
I breathe in something soft.
I am no longer there.
What's this here? An angel of mercy?
Just a friend to save my life.
Too bad we couldn't go together,
Be in peace.

Shadow on the SunThere's a shadow on the sunShadow on the Sun6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There's a cloud in my mind
Day and night, just thinking,
thinking all the time
About the past, the now, the future
And then further still
I'd love to know what I'll see
What could be and what will
There is only forward
no rewind or turning back
One day we'll have memories
That at the moment we lack
So many possibilities
So many ways to go
So many places to see
So many people to know
If I could see now
Where I'll be in twenty years
Would I see amazing hope,
or unfathomable fears?
So I'll live for now
And stay alive till then
As the years pass by we'll say
"Do you remember when...?"

They moved and walked and spoke as their individual programming dictated, but their breathing was synchronised, in and out with the constancy of a ticking clock.

She had to concede that she was, although the term made her uneasy.
In out. In out. It breathed just like all the other bots did.
Without access to the research databases, she had made a very basic effort at its programming, and that meant it needed to be taught.

fireworksThe boy was an artist.fireworks4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He worked with his eyes and hands in perfect unison. The teachers sighed as he swam through his classes absentmindedly, imagination focused on higher goals. Numbers and report cards were meaningless. Math instructors were more eager to see his artwork, crammed into the margins of his assignments, than to award his effortless high grades.
He didn't think he was special. I don't think he thought of himself at all. The world he had created was one of pure fiction and impossibility, and was as limitless as the heavens. He was not included. Maybe the same way God doesn't participate in the earth he made.
He loved people. He loved me especially for who I was. I'd never met anyone more honest or, coincidentally, more kind. His compliments would breathe life into a dying day, for they were as genuine and precious as diamond. That smile of his let me know that it was free.

In your nose and out your mouth.
Calm yourself. Don't let it take control.
You will embarass yourself.
Don't shed the tears that are welling up.
Cover your face with your hair so they won't see your face get red.
As the tears drip down, don't let them hit the desk.
And the sniffle thats coming should be quick and muffled.
When the hurt gets worse, don't cry hard.
As your body starts to shake, don't make a sound.

And right for you,
And your heart just wants to burst,
And you want to cry,
And you want to laugh,
And you get so caught up in the rush,
And you cant breath,
Because every breathe is full of them.
You cant see,

You are caught in the rush.
Now you can only hope that you'll survive,

Love is Hiding in the ShadowsOne morning I sat upLove is Hiding in the Shadows6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Dreams still turning in my head
When I felt this odd sensation
And looked under the bed
A little box of chocolates
And a note that said:
Love is waiting in the shadows
You must always look ahead
I wondered who did this,
Who snuck into my room
"Someone who's been watching me,"
Was all I could assume
I'll be the first to admit
That I was a little scared
Until I saw a second box
And realized someone cared
Inside the second box
There was another note
I picked it up and read it
This is what was wrote:
Love is hiding around a corner
Look for it everywhere
And once the time has come for you
It's your obligation to share
Love is not just friendship or romance
It's everything in between
You'll feel it in the air
Because it remains unseen
At this point I was confused
What were they telling me?
I went outside and spread the love
And then I felt oh-so-free
Love is hidden in the shadows
It arrives when least expected
Wrap it around your heart and you
Will always f
