Vivisection - 1 I bit my lip and turned up the volume on my mp3 player in a vain attempt to ignore the paper ball that had been thrown at the back of my head. I knew that more would come, but had learned to live with it. If you could call my pitiful existence living. It certainly didn't feel like it.Vivisection - 18 years ago in Horror More Like This
After school each day, I would die. Well, not literally, but I'd die inside. It sounds corny, but it's the only way I can describe the bitter emptiness of my soul. The empty shell that was my body, me, would enter the empty house that I lived in, with its empty cupboards and empty greetings that would occasionally await me. After the empty day, I try to add something to my empty life.
I don't know what caused me to start doing this in the first place. It can't have been a plea for attention, because I didn't want any contact with people. I hated them all. Yet, to leave them all behind and head off to a better place seemed impossible. So pathetic.
But now, ev

The tears filled my eyes as I watched him dress in hid bright white uniform. It was so pure and clean. Just like the first day he got it. I had promised myself that I wouldnt cry. But when you know that you may never see your husband again, thats not exactly the easiest thing to do.
He took one look at me and put me in his warm embrace. Thats when I lost it. The tears wouldnt go away. I didnt even bother to try and stop them. I was too tired. Too upset. Why did there have to be a war going on? Why couldnt they just leave us be?
Jimmy let go of me and said, Now stop those tears, hon. You know Ill always come home for you.

Bygone DragonsA young mother smiled as she gently laid her infant son down in a little makeshift bed of cloth and straw. He was an unusually hefty baby, with his father's face and soft black hair, but like all other small children he quickly fell asleep once bundled up warm and safe. Looking strained and tired, she loathed to leave him alone, but there was work to be done and he was not her only child nor responsibility.Bygone Dragons3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
So the baby slept on peacefully as his mother took leave of him, her shadow casting on him one last time as she walked towards the door. Then thoughtfully, she looked back, and seeing him there she smiled. After the brief pause, she went outside and shut the door behind her, never to come home.
Quite a bit of time had passed and the baby, well rested, awoke and became hungry. He cried for his mother to come and appease him, but there was no response. The only person who mattered in his small world had somehow ceased to exist. Another hour or so went by before the door at last swu
I CAN Send You a Letter, DearI CAN Send You a Letter, Dear5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
From one man to another
From one man to his lover
Is it taboo to write a letter
On this day, now or never?
Is it scandalous, our affair?
As we float, too high, on air
Though I wish I may, I wish I might
You're the only one for me tonight.
I wrap myself in your perfume
In the sweet embrace of your cocoon
To dance in the stars next to Ursabear
Will the world acknowledge such an affair?
I laugh and cry, you hold me tight
Our delicate love, to my delight
We won't hold back, no love to spare
As we lose ourselves in this affair
When we both are dead and gone
In our graves, side-by-side, along
Our children will accept and know
Just how much I loved you so
Over the sea and far out of sight
I am still with you on this night
My sweet love, my only man!
With love, from Afghanistan.

I'm so in love with my sailor,
yet we're always apart,
and though the days are hard,
he's always in my heart.
I hold him in my heart,
until he can be by my side,
and it gets harder and harder,
every night that passes by.
I see him in my thoughts,
and all my fantasies and dreams,
he's the only one I think of,
or so it truely seems.
I imagine all the good times,
the ones where we laughed and cried,
and I can only miss him more,
and wish he was by my side.
The ocean took him away,
and now I just want him here,
and I really wish in that moment,
that he could just appear.
Though I know he'll be back someday,
It still hurts me when he's gone,
and I wish he never had to leave me,
but somehow I still move on.
I worry for him and his safey,
and secret tears will flow,
but through all of this,
he still loves me so.
I'm so proud of my navy boy,
and I can't wait to see him again,
but this is the hard and joyful life,
of what we call a navy girlfriend.
1: Warning SignsThe atmosphere in my seventh period Honors English class is just slightly more upbeat than "so bored this could cure my insomnia." I know I'm fighting sleep in these last moments. The only thing that can focus my attention better than the back of Jake Sivers' head are the tiny red lights of the clock; counting down the minutes until my salvation. It's 3:17; eight minutes to go.1: Warning Signs5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My eyelids droop.
Sometimes I wonder why we spend so much time learning how to read clocks when they put digital clocks everywhere. I just don't see the logic in that. Then again, I doubt there are many high schoolers who have the attention span to read a normal clock. I know I don't, though it might help me stay awake.
I avert my eyes and let them meander around the room, the 3:19 emblazoned on the backs of my eyelids. My vision is bombarded by the back-lit screens of cellphones as half the class answers texts simultanteously. It seems as if the only people actually paying attention to Mr. Wilson's lecture are

He is sulking.
He isn't sure what he is sulking about; it's just one of those days, where everything goes wrong.
He forgot his eraser, his lunch-money. He forgot to smile at Kirsha.
He stepped in dog crap and messed up in gym-class.
He had a fight with his Dad and his sister, and his brother found a puppy last night.
A puppy that peed on his bag and chewed on his shoes and made a mess everywhere else.
It's just been a bad day, and so he sulks at the spot where everyone comes to smoke.
Only that now it's empty and silent, only the old cigs keeping him company as he skips class for something like sulking.
He should feel guilty, and he does, but the days sucks so far and Vincent thinks he deserves this moment of peace.
Only that it doesn't last long.
Because he hears someone come closer. He scowls and looks up, ready to glare.
But his face slackens with surprise and he stares, instead, at the one that's the opposite of him

A little problem that proceeded to grow,
How big it would get, no one could know.
But if they had, it could have helped so.
She grasped the blade, it touched her skin;
This is where the saga did begin.
She cut herself to remove her sin,
The evil poured out as the steel went in.
She soon realized that each cut brought release
It brought her harmony, brought her peace.
It was a welcome feeling, how could she cease?
The amount of cutting began to increase.
It was a vicious cycle of blood and pain
She'd cut one day, then try to abstain.
You can't understand, because it's hard to explain;
But if she didn't cut she'd become insane.
She kept on cutting she couldn't stop;
Once you've picked up a blade it's hard to drop.
She knew one day her veins would pop,
But all she ever wanted was to be on top.
So she kept on going, she cut more and more.
She felt her anguish melt each time her skin tore.
When she couldn't breathe and she hurt to the core,
It relieved her to s

Army of skeletonsI'm completely lost in the abyss,Army of skeletons2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
all I can see are heads
turning three-sixty degrees
and joints moving in a rather
synchronised, perfect manner -
jolting to one side, then the other.
As I stick my left joint up,
they stick their right
and it seems I will never be able,
never be able to follow this
imposing army of bony skeletons.
I try to march in their rhythm,
moving my skull just right -
sixty degrees anti-clockwise,
then three-sixty degrees clockwise...
making sure I walk parallel
to those that stand next to me, tall.
Trapped, all I can do is pretend
that I know what I'm doing.
As I march in the scorching desert,
a poor and stupid skeleton
trying to move in the same beat.
My fate is inevitable though -
I'm not fit to join this army
and it is only a matter of time
before I fall into the fine desert sand..
my soul will fly into the dry air
and my skeleton will lay there,
alone and helpless.

I was already dead, already lost with no place to go. Nobody loves me for who I am, so why should I be here? I take out my knife and plunge it in my stomach, falling to my knees as a pool of blood formed around me. I looked at his pained face as he was scrambling toward me, trying to save my life. For the first time, he held me in his arms, with my blood dripping on his perfect figure. I looked at him and whispered, "I love you," and my vision went black as I closed my eyes, never to open again.
