The GirlShe lives in a fantasy world in her mindThe Girl9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
where life is so easy and everything's fine
She knows she can't stay there, but she sure as hell tries
It's better than facing her own web of lies
She hides from her problems and runs from her fears
She drowns herself every night in her tears
Some call her a coward, some call her insane,
I'd like to see them take one half of her pain
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside
She knows that suicide isn't the way,
though she thinks of it at least once every day.
Too proud and afraid to face her own mistakes,
She just hates herself more with every heart she breaks.
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside.
These thoughts just fill her head
She thinks she's better off dead

I want you to turn away, ignore me for a while…
I hear them talking about me, I know what they say
That I haven't a heart, that I drove them and her away
So maybe I'm lost, and I've no clue s'what to do
One thing I do know, I won't ever need you…
I don't have time for lectures; I need to pay my dues
There's things I must be doing, and I don't have time for you
So step out of my way, learn to let me pass
In the end it's all the same, you'll be one of my past
It's not like I'm lonely, or bored, or confused
I'm just sick of her games, of feeling so used
I don't quite know how, and I'm not quite sure when
I'll lower my shields, and learn to trust again…
I know I'm missing something, that I'm somehow incomplete
As I wander down the middle of the empty, barren street
But I will not ask directions, for I need to find my way
Back to where I'm welcomed, back to someplace I can stay…

When you do something because your gut tells you to
When you do something for the love of doing it
When you do something with no monetary goals.
is When it doesn’t matter how many times you talk to someone,
Every time you do it again, it’s a new, exciting, experience
When you do your job without ever having to work
When you can look in the mirror and feel pride without vanity
When a smile is on your face and you don’t know how it got there.
The state of being when you
do what you Love, and Love what you Do;

Love is down
Love is going through
When you want to go round
"Love is never having to say you're sorry"
But you say it anyway
Love is all those secret smiles
When there's nothing more to say
Love is having scars on your feet
From wearing the shoes they bought you
Love is listening to 'I love you's
And knowing every word is true
Love is writing silly poems
Exactly like this
And love is not actually knowing
Exactly what love is
Heavy Metal Is The Law --I live in metal.Heavy Metal Is The Law --8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I die in metal.
My bones are made of steel.
I am a metal demon,
A dragon of the rock,
A warrior of alternativity.
I live by the law of metal.
The blood of vikings flows through my veins.
Like my fore fathers I was born to inflict pain.
Heavy metal can't be beaten by anything,
But only because of us;
We must all be willing to die for metal.
Heavy metal is the law.

Go on and try it.
Search my eyes.
Look long and deep.
search the shadows as the creep
across the dark recesses
because anyone's guess is
as good as mine
when they ask me why.
Search the sunbeams,
and the broken dreams.
Sift through the pieces
Left lying in the creases
of the folds across my mind field.
Watch your step.
It's a long way down
Look deeper inside
Each little cranny I used to hide
Each fortress and parapet
Way down as deep as you can get
in castles and moats
and little sail boats
skipping across the bay.
Look in my eyes and say
Because it's all there
and I don't care
if it all breaks and tears
and the tears roll free
and send me sinking back in misery.
Because this is my chance
someone asked me to dance and I'll not say no
so on I go,
up to the moon
never to come back down again.
So I ask you to look inside
I've got nothing to hide anymore.
So look me in the eye and deny it

Day 1 - I said a fond farewell to my identical brothers and sisters as we left the production line and went our separate ways. We are all equally perfect, our components sized to tolerances of mere micrometres. May we all live perfect lives, with each of us a perfect user.
Day 2 - Bah, I am still waiting in this warehouse to be loaded onto the freight plane. At this rate I'll never leave China. DHL has a lot to answer for this.
Day 3 - Alright, after that unnecessary delay, I am at last loaded up with a pre-paid SIM card, and ready to meet my buyer. I can't wait.
Day 4 - My buyer is unboxing me all wrong. Oh well, I suppose she's my user now. I had better get used to her. "Slide to set up."
Day 5 - My user has waltzed through the setup process without even bothering to set up an iCloud account. What a philistine. Still, I am quick to judge. Maybe she will understand me better when I show her the 1 million plus apps in my curated App Store.

The DressOver the years, people have gone to truly extraordinary lengths in pursuit of fashion. A catalog of peculiar gowns would fill several volumes, even without getting into bizarre hats, wigs, gloves, codpieces, shoes, eyeglasses, and all manner of other demented accessories, and I will not so tax the reader except to mention a few highlights.The Dress6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Dresses of strange materials are not uncommon. Among the oddest were the mycorrhiza gown of Milicent von Pratt, a wrap of finest fungal threads. This sensational outfit required almost two weeks to put on, requiring Lady von Pratt to paint herself with an agar and compost growth medium and lay prone in a fungal bed for most of that time. It was only worn once, and deteriorated significantly during the course of the evening, requiring her ladyship to retire quickly from the entertainments.
And then there was the finchbone dress worn by the Dowager Duchess of Eastmarch, made from the tiny skeletons of nearly a thousand finches, carefully wrapped and hu
The Spacer's SongI see infinity lying at my fingertipsThe Spacer's Song5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When the moon rises and the stars quip
In their speechless tongue,
Measured in nanometers and wrung
From the union of basic simplicity,
The language of our complicity
In mysteries billions of times
Beyond our scale and sublime
Before our minds ever existed:
We are small, yet we persisted
In walking out of ourselves
Into foreign gravities, to delve
Deeper into the words stars shine
Into our eyes and trace their lines
Back to the beginning, so that one day
We may see a foreign sunrise and say
"It's beautiful" in the company
Of others from another place, and finally
Know why everything came to be.
I don't understand the words reaching me,
But trusting the possibilities of their meaning
I continue in observing the sky and freeing
My fellows from the surly bonds of Earth;
For their meaning I'll give all I'm worth.
For NiamoWe were tangled together like Christmas lights.For Niamo9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You laced your hand in mine
and I watched the morning sun while you slept in my arms.
I heard you gently breathing.
It lifted from your lips like a contented sigh from the kiss of sleep
and I reveled in the warmth of your body against mine.
But I dared not close my eyes
I feared the cruel trick of dreams' illusions
and held you all the closer lest you be gone when I awoke.
After all, when your dreams come true
what then are left but the nightmares of loosing what you have
and the pain of watching them go?
By and by exhaustion took me from my vigil
and I saw you dying in my arms begging to be saved
asking why I had failed you.
With a start I woke fearing you'd be gone,
just another figment of a love starved mind,
but you held me and told me it was just a dream.
And in that moment I understood.
For the first time
I was not alone.

Despite their best efforts, the overwhelming power of the prodigy trainer Lucas proved to be too much for the Legendary Quintet as they were all defeated and captured. Only Lucario remained free, and only regained consciousness long after Lucas had departed with his newfound friends. Alone and disoriented, he continued wandering on a fruitless journey, cursing himself for his failure.
Word of Celebi's capture quickly spread. Legends mixed with rumors and created hope, leaving people dreaming of a new era of prosperity formed from the research of Celebi's alleged abilities.

Love is when you care more about someone else's happiness than your own,
You would do anything for them,
You'd rather be with them than anyone else in the world,
You would die so they could live,
When you lose them it feels like you lose yourself,
They're the only thing you can ever think of,
You never even dream of being with anyone else, because they're everything you want,
They have many faults, but you're blind to them,
You would take them back no matter what they do,
When you're with them it's the happiest times of your life,
but when you're without them it feels like there is this great big hole in you
You always wanna be in their arms,
Everything reminds you of them,
You miss them the second they leave,
you're always worried about them
there is something in you just burning so deeply
you cannot even begin to describe it
you want to be the one they turn to
you want to be the one they trust
they can hurt you so much
but you choose to pretend that they don't

One of dreams, the other reality.
One has you by my side, day and night
The other is making me wait.
I dream of you in faded gray
so close and yet so far away
The days go by, as do the nights
slowly bringing me closer to you
But not fast enough,
as I'm sure you'd agree.
The moonlight dances in your eyes
like incandescent fireflies
Yearning for your touch
Longing for your embrace
I wait with guarded anticipation
for the day when both are mine.
Such joy and pleasure do we find
when joined in body, soul, and mind
We paint time on feathered wings,
hoping that it may be inspired to take flight
bringing the day of our meeting ever nearer to reality.
Our efforts are in vain, as we well know
Yet anything to more quickly close this distance between us
is certainly worth trying.
Sweet nothings dance on fingertips
as we've found better use for lips
Until then, I will keep waiting
since time refuses to move any faster.

There were groups of ponies, mostly colts and fillies, wandering around the town just to look at the colorful carnage. Some of the buildings' owners stood stunned and staring at the eyesore that their business or home had become. Some had hiked up their tails and set right to work scrubbing the walls or repainting. The hardware stores were quickly selling out of paint and cleaning supplies.
The Mayor had taken one look at the clashing argyle that now coated the town hall and had fainted dead away. They were carrying her off on a stretcher to Ponyville Urgent Care, half conscious and muttering to herself about playing tennis with a giant blancmange.
