Better Off"He'd be better off without me"Better Off9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
That's what I told myself as I faded from his sight
"He'd be better off without me"
A sentence to dull the pain of parting
I wanted him to be normal
Wanted him to have a normal life and once day have a family
But if I dared intrude after he lost his powers
I knew I'd ruin his chances of normalcy
"He'd be better off without me"
I would repeat that over and over again
So I wouldn't crush the normalcy he deserved...
Months went by - life carried on
I couldn't stop wondering if he was well
Then, I was told that he was to receive his powers once more
And I would be the one to give it to him
I wanted t
Hansel And Gretel My EditionIt was a dark and stormy night, and a near poor factory worker drove his wife and kids home in a rusty pickup truck. There was a middle seat, and three seats in the back. The factory worker's second wife suddenly piped her whiny voice from the back seat next to the twins, Jericho and Jennifer. Her shrill voice cried out, "Gerald! We do not have enough money to keep these brats! Your wife doesn't pay child support, and your foodstamps needs to be renewed." She kept blabbering.Hansel And Gretel My Edition1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

The day had finally come. The day Denae would venture into the Deep Roads along with her friends to find great riches. Well that was the idea at least. Worse comes to worst all they would find was Dark Spawn and bones. Which was why she was currently hoping for treasure and not death. Looking up she spotted Carver walking out of the room with his bag. He was dressed well and looked ready for a fight. Hopefully not with her.
"Are you ready sister?" He looked at her.
"Thank the maker. For a moment there I thought you were going to rip me a new one." Deane teased and was given a small smirk in response.

From The Other SideWe take from one anotherFrom The Other Side2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Steal what we think we need
Its really not a wonder
This world runs on greed
Personal gain affects the mind
Morals have gone and died
To our own actions we grow blind
Look from the other side
A fresh perspective is the key
Our chests we may unlock
Though some are not afraid to see
Some just can't take the shock
So many eyes will look away
The truth can hurt sometimes
The walking wounded know dismay
Some just can't see their crimes
Its not too late for us to change
We can choose not to steal
Maybe at first it will feel strange
In time most wounds can heal

down my spine.
Falling onto the hardwood
right where I thought you stood.
Reappear before me,
take me away from my home.
I swear I won't say a thing,
I promise everyone

The moon and sun collide
and make such a beautiful sight,
but be careful,
it burns our eyes.
Walk in front of me,
I'll hold you hand.
Fight the monsters with
your bow and arrow,
I'm chilled through and through
down to my bone marrow.
The stars shine down upon
the ocean wonderland
as you grip my throat
as tightly as you can,
and threaten harshly,
throw me into the sand.

ever met, now let me tell you this -
You knew me, when I still wore satin and lace
I shall forever bow in Gods' grace
For you knowing me then and yet still look at me now in the face...
Back when I was a spoiled brat,
A tomboy at heart,
Yes - a fact... I must add,
You knew me, before I wore black...
Before I thought I knew-all-that...
I laugh at myself, of who I was, now...
And the fact that you can see me as a precious gem!
Makes me fall from the clouds!
I don't see how!
When my hems were white, and my voice loud,
When my satin was pink, and my voice quiet - and I didn't speak...

I must say you are odd.
Why, you might ask.
Well, you make me happy and sad.
You make me smile and cry.
You make me feel safe and ill.
If that hurts your feelings, I am deeply sorry.
I shall rephrase my statement:
Heart, you are weird.
Why, you might ask.
Well, you are brave and scared.
You have pride and conscience.
You are gentle and arrogant.
And, unfortunately for you, you are my heart.
So I might as well say that I am strange.
Well, of course I am.
You know what Heart?
I think we might have a lot in common.

And we never give up.
