Knowing The TruthWhen I began to question my sexuality:Knowing The Truth4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
In 8th grade I had a crush on this guy who was bisexual, later turned out to be gay, but I didn't know that. When in the locker room with my friend I said, "How can someone be bisexual?" She seemed to be offended, so I asked her what was wrong. That was when she informed that she was also bisexual.
Being raised in a household where it is known for a woman to marry a man this came as a shock for me to comprehend. Don't get me wrong, my parents aren't homophobic by any means. I just wasn't exposed to that kind of love or lifestyle at the time. Anyways, after I had a talk with my friend and she told me more about being 'bisexual' I began to question my own feelings.
Curious & Changing:
I was told, "If you can see yourself a long term romantic relationship with a female then you are bisexual." So I began to theorize if that was possible for me. After a couple weeks of thinking I came up with the answer, "I would kis

Unless you mean it.
Don't whisper you love me,
Until you can scream it.
Don't make me feel happy,
And then throw me away.
Don't tell me you hate me,
Because I am gay.
Don't call me unnatural,
An abomination of God.
It's your hate, your anger,
You, that is odd.
I like boys,
And I love men,
Because I am gay;
I've always been.

Not because I'm funny,
But because I'm a lesbian.
I've never kissed anyone,
I'm too afraid.
I've never held anyone's hand,
At least not in public.
I've never lost my virginity,
But I am proud of that.
I am NOT proud of the fact I am in the closet,
But I am proud I am inching out.
I am moving closer to being myself,
But I need you to give me room to breathe.

All I did was love you...
You explode with a passion that consumes the air and hushes the flies. Your eyes glow with heavy hate that we all knew would be there, but never are ready for. You curse and spit, your hands fly through the air, waving blindly as you scream, your words filled with icy hatred.
All I did was love you...
Your words are daggers slicing clean through me, leaving me empty. You call me stupid, ugly, short, annoying, emo/goth, over-dramatic, a diva that can't stop complaining. I become rigid with fright and ice over, unable to move or speak and I bite back my tears forcing themselves from my eyes.
All I did was love you...
When the flood-gates are opened they are impossible to close. I've lost when they start to flow, and I can see the victory writ
Valentine's ChocolateI sigh deeply as I look at the person in front of me.Valentine's Chocolate4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It's one of my closest friends, Jay, and she suddenly popped a question about Valentine's chocolates.
Yes a rather random and surprising question.
...At least she's a person I can trust, right?
"So, Valentine's day's almost near, eh? Are you planning on giving anyone chocolates?" she asks me, her voice happy and somewhat smug. The look on her face was one of her Ha-I-know-that-I'm-tormenting-you-right-now. Plus-I'm-only-doing-this-to-annoy-you looks.
...Of course, it had to be on this very sensitive subjects, yes? Well, she is that type of person... She just doesn't recognize it that much. ha, also makes her the lovable git she is, but anyways....
"Why the hell should I answer that, dammit?"
"Becauuuseee.... We're friends right?" she says, with a huge grin on her face.
I look at her and sigh once more.
Apparently, she wasn't wearing the school uniform. It's not an infraction here at the high school though.

She arranged everything for me. Linda was the only one left for me since our parents had the accident. I couldn't imagine life without her too. I'd probably follow her to the other side right away.
She arranged just everything. Spoke to the headmaster and the teachers I would be having. She said they all were fine with it. A beginning. But what would it matter if the teachers were allright with it, if my new classmates wouldn't like me? And probably all the other students?
As said, I expected it. Already when Linda helped me with my corsett that morning. Doing my makeup and styling my hair took me twice as long as usual.
Mrs. Crowley was kind. She defended me. Half of the class got detention after the first lessons. Well, it wasn't actually good for me either. They'd blam
What is love to MeLove is not blind,What is love to Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is all seeing.
Love is not deaf,
It hears the whispered confessions,
On the brink of sleep.
It is not limitless,
Because limitless implies that limits exist.
It is not perfect,
But is mold-able,
To fit around your feelings.
It can not heal all wounds,
But gives you a reason to move on.
It does not think,
It is not unbreakable,
Breaks the restraints within itself.
It is not genderless,
For is does not believe in Gender.
It is not for everyone.
Only those who are open minded can truly grasp it's enormity.
But love is -
Worth this time you must take to find yourself.
Worth the risk of falling.
Worth breaking the rules.
It has worth, but only as much as you give it.

Would rather stay inside
Than go out with her friends
Would watch anime all day long
And never get sick of it
Loves to listen to blaring music
Even if it might make her deaf
Would prefer to stay in on sunny days
To write poems about feelings
Eats and eats and eats
Until she is satisfied
Doesn't care what people think
As long as she does the right thing
Wants to fall in love
But is too afraid to get hurt

I want to melt in your arms,
Scorched by your gaze,
I'd give anything to speak,
It repeats in my head again,
I do so wish to answer you,
But the angels took my voice as a child,
Oh, cruel temptation and torture,
I think I'm going to speak for the first time,
And just as you smile,
You're pushed away,
Allowing the crowd to carry you,
And with no voice I can't ask you to stay...
What if I could speak?
If only you had known,
Every night I cry feeling cold and alone,
What if I could speak?
If only you had known,
How much I ache for you to hold my hand and never let go,
Yet you leave me here because you don't know,
I feel pain and sorrow,
And all it took was for you to say

Waiting for you to come home, well, the one I used to call when I didn't love you.
Waiting, I am so scared right now, needing to know if they know why I love you.
Waiting while everyone sleeps, or whispers about you and me and what we are.
Waiting, and I am going insane, it's too hard to think about anything else but you my love.
Waiting while I try to finish that poem, the one about me being stupid and ignorant.
WAITING SUCKS ASS!!!
So I wrote the words that describe how I felt while trying to finish the poem.
Writers block, writers block, writers block, writers block, writers block, writers block.

But not for fixing my writers block for that poem, but that's how I came up with this one.
So here goes an experimental poem, which the whole waiting thing was an introduction to.

I'm biting at my lip- a childhood nervous habit I can't quit- until my sister gives me a solid glare as if say "Wtf. Stop it."
And I do.
My heart skips a beat as I think of those words.
The words I'll be saying soon.
I'm nervous. No.. Excited?
I bow my head, trying to hide my cheeks, again.
I toy with my curls a bit.
All down. No straightened bangs I used to have as a teen.
I loved them, but you always said you loved my curls.
And, hell, I always wanted what you wanted.
I hear faint scrapes of chair on the ground, pulling me out of my own head.
I look up to see everyone turning their heads to the back.
I hear "Romeo and Juliet(Love Theme)" playing softly in the background.
That means it's time.
I never really thought this day would come.
My parents will forever laugh at me.
Those times I said in such a bratty tone:
"I NEVER get married!"
How wrong I was.
But, it's not like they were pretty acurate eit

Letter from the Devil
I saw you yesterday,
As you began your daily chores.
You awoke without kneeling to pray.
As a matter of fact,
You didn't even bless your meals,
Or pray before going to bed last night.
You are so un-thankful,
I like that about you.
I cannot tell you how glad I am,
That you have not changed your way of living,
O Fool of mine
You are mine.
You and I have been going steady for years,
And I still don't love you yet.
As a matter of fact,
I never will.
I hate you because I hate God.
He kicked me out of heaven.
So I am going to use you,
As long as possible,
To pay him back.
You see, Fool,
God Loves You,
He has great plans in store for you.
But you have yielded your life to me,
And I am going to make your life a living hell.
That way, we'll be together twice.
This will really hurt God.
Thanks to you, I'm really showing Him who's boss in your life

I smacked the alarm. As I rolled out of bed, I noticed the ugly uniform hanging on the doorknob. I sighed. I slouched out of bed and got dressed. I left my room to go downstairs. "Keep your back straight, Catherine!" My mom yelled when I got to the bottom of the stairs. I sat in the dining room chair and ate my soggy cereal. "Your hair is a mess! Go clean up! And where are your pantyhose? You are never going to be a proper lady!" Nagged my mom. "Mom, I still have time so can you-" "DO NOT SPEAK BACK TO ME! And do not call me 'Mom'. I am your MOTHER." she scolded. "Yes mother..." I sighed. I walked down the hallway, and looked at myself in the mirror. I was pale, my parents never let me do anything over the summer. I grabbed the brush from the bathroom and brushed my ratty blonde hair. After I got the uncomfortable pantyhose on, I grabbed my backpack and put on my shoes. "Seeya, mom!"

But never let someone make you feel like you lack.
Then there are those who bully and tease,
These are not the people that you should please.
Remember the sweet phrase that you learned as a child,
Sticks and stones may break my bones, your words are only mild.
Then there are those who hate others must obviously themselves,
For what they want and do not have is on top of life's highest shelves.
Do not let these people bother you in any way,
For you are the one who controls your day.
You are perfect in your perfect other's eyes,
Be glad this is something you will one day realize.
It gets better, I promise.
WonderlandI watched a movie;Wonderland5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's genre was fantasy.
The main character's name was Alice-
She discovered a world of malice.
Poor Alice fell through a hole in the ground;
Both friends and enemies were what she found.
A hatter who was obviously mad,
And a queen who was nothing but bad.
As I watched the plot progress,
My imagination was hardly at rest.
I became part of a story
Altered and controlled by me.
I was friends with the hatter and hated the queen,
And couldn't stand how she was nothing but mean.
Me and Alice stood side by side;
I was happy and never once cried.
She fought the Jaberwocky and won;
And a sad truth was revealed under a setting sun.
So when it was time for Alice to go back,
She dropped the bottle and said with a laugh,
"Shall we make this a never ending dream?"
It was nothing but a made-up scene;
But in my mind when we held hands,
I kissed Alice in Wonderland.

Looks Aren't Everything(4/10/2011)Looks Aren't Everything4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
When I get up on Sundays to go to church, the usual that I would deal with is this in the mornings:
"Wear something else."
"That doesn't look right."
"You can find something better to wear."
"You're wearing THAT to church?"
"People are going to think_____"
"...and people notice_____"
My mom would normally get on my case about what I wear to church, and I would just shake it off and go as I am anyway.
Here's the thing...
At some point in my life when I started going back into the habit of attending church, I used to make some attempt to get "dressed up" to church. It was always something expected of me from my parents that I make myself look "lady-like" or formal in some way. The dressy clothes that I do own, I discovered, were actually not all that comfortable for me to wear
