This Game We Call RomanceThis is a strange game we all playThis Game We Call Romance4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A game we call romance
Just like a chess piece we take turns
Its one mysterious dance
As we grow up we learn our role
Our tongues learn to deceive
Nobody wants their thoughts revealed
Who knows what to believe
We're told that there are many maps
They say our heart will guide
Yet broken ships can sail off course
We question things inside
This ancient game has great rewards
Treasures wait to be found
We have to find the correct key
Great warmth hides underground
We bide our feelings behind masks
And hope we'll find the one
That special someone to dance with
This game just might be fun

Oggi sono andato a
scuola e c'erano tutti quei bambini che ci avevano il casco. I bambini
che ci hanno il casco sono i cocchi della maestra, ma io non sono un
cocco. Infatti io ho i capelli lunghi. Lunghi fino al culo, anche se
culo è una parolaccia e mamma non vuole che la dica. Gengy
dice che però farsi la vita vendendo il culo che c'hai fa
guadagnare tanti verdoni, così tanti che non li vedi nemmeno
negli alberi tanti verdoni così messi assieme.
A proposito Gengy è
il mio migliorissimo amico. Lui non viene a scuola con me perché
dice che alla scuola ti fanno il casco. Secondo me ha ragione. Però
io non ho ancora il casco e non lo vorrò mai.
A scuola ci sono cose
che ci obbligano a fare come andare a capo. Avete visto sono andato a
capo prima, perché la maestra vuole che andiamo a capo e se
non vai a capo ti prendi un cazzotto sul capo. Semplice no?
Secondo me è una
cosa stupida..intendo andare a capo. Se tutti and

She tugged on my fur like I was a teddy bear,
Her tiny fingers curled in my thick gray mane.
My fluffy tail is her blanket of warmth.
She laughs and giggles at everything I do.
And I laugh at the joy she so easily receives.
As she rests on her mother's lap to sleep-
My master and I slip from the cabins nest.
Evening approaches as dusk settles in the air.
My ears pricked for the slightest of sounds,
I keep my nose pointed down- for the scent of elk.
It fills my nostrils as if they stood before me.
A bark emanates from deep within me,
Then I dash across the snow-covered terra.
My master followed at a distance, trusting my senses.
My prey cannot hide its tracks along the forest floor.
And before they know it I am upon them.
The bull turns to face me to protect his does.
He will not fear me nor do I fear him as he charges.
I dodge his antlers with the swiftness of a ghost,
I sink my teeth into his hind leg then release quickly.
He calls out in pain as he rings his head around.
Closer Than BloodYou tense at everythingCloser Than Blood8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Already hurt by it
Even if it's harmless
Just in case
You run away
I can't stop you
It tears my heart out
I can't stand to see you hurting
And I want so much to protect you
From myself and the world
But you won't let me
Too used to the way you've done things
For so long
You're so strong
It's like nothing can break you
But I'm the same
And I know better
I know that
You're only so strong
Because you've been broken
The wild spirit I love
Reduced to nothing
Trapped in the cage of society
Where the rules bind you
And bring you down
You need freedom
And the promise
Of love and protection from harm
I can't promise you that
Because although you and I run from pain
We've also been taught to fight back
Sometimes against each other
When our flight gets too hard
How I wish I could
Make that promise to you
We've got a bond
By our sad habits
And you break my walls down
As I do yours
No barrier can come between u

Play that guitar like its the only thing out in the world,
The only thing in the world that can bring peace.
And let the songs ring inside the ears and souls of your audience...
Let your music ring and rejuvenate the souls of the listeners,
Revitalize the souls of the audience,
And give them pleasure that no other thing in the world can bring.
For no other thing in the world can bring peace...
Stand before us and sing out your soul,
Feed us your anger, your pain, your pride,
Feed us with your lines of truth and of lies,
For we are gluttonous pigs,
And our gluttony keeps us alive...
Man who stands before us,
Showing every aspect of his own personal being,
Playing away at the strings,
Calling out to life and those around him,
To simply sit and listen,
To simply sit and absorb the knowledge that he has to bring...
Man who plays stairway to heaven,
Only one who deserves for it to come down for him,
Never receiving it him
Midnight LullabyGo to sleep my dear oneMidnight Lullaby8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Close your pretty eyes
I don't expect some happy dream
I know it's from nightmares you hide
But love, the circles beneath your eyes
Are just not fading away
You need to rest a little while
Yes, I'm here to stay
I won't leave you in the night
Won't leave you all alone
To face the endless terrors
That your mind makes its home
Please don't fight this anymore
Stop shaking yourself awake
I'll hold you in my arms, darling
When you scream and quake
Cover yourself with blankets
And let your precious head
Fall back onto the pillows
Of your cloudlike bed
I know the silence screams to you
Of dark and future things
But I'll try to block it out, my pet
As to you, sweet, I'll sing
A lullaby composed for you
From the fingers of my hands
To guide you through the storms of life
Into my arms again
As you breathe a heavy sigh
Let conciousness slip away
I will kiss you sweetly
One last promise I will say
Go to sleep my dear one
Close your pretty eyes
And everything will be differen

To talk about me
And my feelings
But I'm afraid I don't know how
Because I can only seem to show
Never the whole
Because I don't know it myself
You want me to explain myself
Tell you what's going on
When I don't even know
I'm kind of lost
Not to mention scared out of my mind
To be left with myself
And look inside
And see myself
Who I really am
Not who I pretend to be
With my overly loud laugh
Dressing up and smiling
For the people who will never care
So I guess I'm a little beaten down
Downtrodden with disappointemnt
When no one looks my way
But I make my way along
Still smiling for those who need me
Or say they do
Because I can never trust
Motives or people
It takes just about everything I've got
"Why?' you ask me
I can't tell you
Beacuse I don't know myself

You were trapped in a corner by a mad man wielding a bat full nails and dried blood. His
hair was a dark brown-red, sitting on his head were a pair of cliché sunglasses that most
people would see someone from the mafia wear. His jacket was covered in blood stains and
had a plain black t-shirt underneath. "Y-you a-aren't Alfred ."you stuttered and let out a
small squeak when your back hit a metal fence and you knew that you had nowhere else to
go. "Of course I'm Alfred, im just the better version of him." He said with an evil grin

He watches her, like her own dearest angel
While he sleeps on the other side of the world, his sleeping seconds belong to her
He wants her to claim him, sending living hints in his waking words
She puts to clues together but doubts their reality
Frustrated sighs in the sun and under the clouds
Their separate reasons are close to the same revelation
They are each other, connected by unseen fibers stretching
Threatening to snap them together
He draws the curve of her smile in his mind, the shine in her eyes
She tries to taste him around her, not quite failing nor quite succeeding
Clueless wandering, orbiting around her
Hysteria rising in his throat, he screams against her skin
Cries into her neck, she only feels the memory of whispers
Locking his eyes on her face, he steps back to reality
Dreaming of when shell join him there
LostThe noise all aroundLost7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Tends to drown me out
The crowd that surrounds me
Is pushing me out
I'm fighting against them
But am losing the battle
I slip everyday
Down low to the floor
Where no one can see me
And nobody cares
Stepped I try
To get up and get air
But the noise all around
Drowns me out
And the crowd that surrounds me
Is leaving with me on the floor
I don't move a muscle
I don't make a sound
It is finally silent
But no one's around
I am tired of fighting
And now there's no point
Then out of the dark
I hear a clock tick
As the rest of my life
Is passed without bliss
I've lost inspiration
I try closing the door
To close off all feeling
But I don't want to live
If I will just be hollow
Deprived of emotion
Lost without sorrow
Forever longing for joy

Because it's the color of her eyes
Music captures the heart
Because of the melody of her laugh
Art is beautiful
Because the colors are reminiscent of her
The wind blows
Because of the way her hair dances with it
Because of the way she can be so warm
Because they smell like her
Love stories are written
Because they give her hope
And make her smile
The ocean is deep
Because he loves her
DepartureI'm taking leaveDeparture7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
To the world I know
Because I can't breathe this air
I'll drift away
Where tears float up
No gravity in place
I can still see your face
And the warmth I held inside
Now you're gone
Left me here
Waves move quicker
From the view I seek
Where heaven knows no kingdom
Inside I believe
There's something more
But tonight I feel so bitter
I know I can't grasp them
I wish I could
Replace the cold
With something slightly numbing
Inside this fog
Coming and never clearing
Waves move quicker
From the view I seek
Where heaven knows no kingdom
Inside I believe
There's something more
But tonight I feel so bitter
What We Used to BeI see youWhat We Used to Be7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Across the room
And it's almost like it was planned
This chance meeting
As if it's an old date,
Set but never broken
And I almost call you over to me
A force of habit
In the memories of
How we used to be
Back in the times
When I looked into your eyes
And they always said
What you wanted me to know
Even when words were impossible,
When my hand would only have to reach out
To find its place in yours,
When my scent was forever mingled
No matter how much fabric softener
I dumped in the wash,
And when I could find comfort
At the mere sight of you
Right up until it ended
And we we became who we are now
On our own
And left the memories
Of who we used to be
To fade into the past

Girls are Monsters in DisguiseWho I look like and Who I amGirls are Monsters in Disguise4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Are two different things entirely.
I am at current a small little girl,
With teeth carved to a metal-sharp.
I wear bloody red bows in my hair,
And lick your bodily fluids off my fingers.
I lurk in the toy department of Wal-Mart,
Waiting for children to innocently enter my lair.
I wear black dresses and gothic rings,
With skulls painted on my thin cheeks.
My green ivy eyes without any pupil
Send shivers down the thin boy's spine.
My voice is as sugary as they come,
Saying 'please help me find my mommy?'
Everyone takes innocence at face value,
And I know this one is mine.
What I am is something quite fearsome--
The she-monster of children's nightmares.
With shimmering scales of blood and sweat
Of my victims, totally devoured in moonshed light.
Green eyes aglow like two hideous lanterns
Embedded in my blackened skull.
Claws curving out like fishhooks to skewer
Boys and girls alike for my ever-so-small meals.
The question that remain is simple, dear:
CattivoPenso che dovrei essere più cattivo.Cattivo4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Così sarei più sicuro di me e delle mie idee, e potrei combattere per loro a testa alta, anche se non sono poi così popolari. E così potrei essere più felice con me stesso, non dovendo mai pensare al cosa dire, al come dire, al perché dire, aprirei semplicemente la bocca e lascerei che le parole vengano fuori da sole, limpide e pure voci del mio pensiero, verità senza distorsione.
Dovrei essere più cattivo per proteggere la delicata costituzione della mia coscienza. La corteccia, dicono. Dovrei farmi crescere la corteccia attorno al cuore, e abbellirlo con rami e foglie e fiori, per essere bello fuori e marcio dentro. Così non mi farei toccare dalle parole degli altri, me le farei scivolare addosso come aria, e non me ne farei ferire, e mi sentirei più tranquillo.
Dovrei essere più cattivo, sì.
Così non dovrei sentirmi in obbligo nei confronti degli altri, e non mi farei influenza

And so sick
Of all this quiet
And the only thing I hate
More than everything
Is all this distance
That makes it so hard to think
Like everything will be okay
And I'll tell you flat out
I miss everything
And the way we could get
So crazy and yet
I want it back
When the memories are so close
I could almost reach out
And grab your hand
Please come back
I want to say
When I can't seem to reach you
Come over so I'm not so alone
And it's not so quiet
So this distance
Won't strangle me
Come spend the night
Spend the summer
Spend your life
And I won't have to miss you
And we can go back
To the way it's always been
All of us together
With no fear
Because we have each other
And that's all we'll ever need
All that's ever mattered
All we have

When I'm gone?
The white ceiling sky?
Those ever present witnesses
To every sob, scream, and sigh
The constant companions
Who've sung me to sleep
With murmurs of protection
The old, stained carpet
Whose feather soft depths
Have cushioned my falls,
Softened my footsteps,
And captured my tears without a sound
The doors that hid me
No matter the reason
Kept sounds secret
So no one could condemn or question
Will the echoes still hold
Some memory of my voice?
And allow some piece of me
To live on in every sound
That the walls reflect
And the carpet swallows up
Will these last weeks and days
Be the last that this house,
Remembers the girl
It's protected, helped, and even loved
Before it's filled up with the needs of someone new?
The girl that felt safer even at the sight
Of it's strong white walls and sturdy floors
The girl who skipped up its staircases
And never forgot
To clean it up
And always be

The kiss before they invaded the fire nation.
She had entirely forgotten about it.
Her first kiss.
With her best friend, who was also like a little brother to her.
The feeling in her stomach grew worse.
Is this what people are talking about when they say you get 'butterflies in your belly'? She had always imagined it totally different, more like happiness and joy instead of guilt and sickness.
Was it wrong to kiss him? Does he have a crush on me? Am I having a crush on him? Am I raising his hopes for something more than friendship?
So many questions and no answers.
Everyone was tugging into their dinner greedily since Katara entirely forgot to fix lunch for them. The mood was lightly and happy and Katara let herself get swept with the mood, trying to forget her worries.

If she only knew Zuko could feel her pain himself because
