day you threw my ashes to the winds, you'll
regret not being able to piece me back together

you're dead to me too, love
What Mental Illness Feels LikeIt feels like you're a prisonerWhat Mental Illness Feels Like7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In your own mind
Holding you hands up to your
Looking glass eyes
But not able to escape
It feels like being close to yourself
All the time
But not knowing who you are
Wanting to get close to others
But terrified of letting them in
It feels like wanting to kill all your emotions
So you don't hurt anymore
It feels like the physical pain you cause yourself
Just to kill all the pain
You hold buried inside
It feels like starving your body
Because you feel like a bad person
And like you need to be punished
For all the things you've done - past and present
That those around you say weren't your fault anyway
It feels like memories
Haunting and teasing you
Always there, and never going away
All the things they did to you
And the way they made you feel
It feels like fear
Fear that this is all you'll ever know
That all hope is lost for you
And people will give up
And label you something you're not
It feels like being free
Finally finding someone else

Reluctantly creeping back to my room
Waking to promises of the perfect day
"Just one more kiss" was all I could say
I lay there in silence, inhaling your scent
The landlords were coming, so away you went
Those days spent living a lucid dream
Launched my new life, how different it seemed
Lying in bed, wishing to stay
The plane ride home: I cried the whole way.
Your scent on my skin lingered a while
I spent that whole day forcing a smile
Sadness and joy made my tears flow
As I gazed at the ocean, so far below
Your endless blue eyes can take me away
In just a few years, forever we'll stay
Locked in perpetual love till the end
Till the laws of society finally bend
For now we're locked in our separate cells
Temporarily living our personal hells
As I lay here in silence, I remember your scent
Still here it lingers, long after I went.
I'll love you forever, and so it shall be.
And I'll remember your face till it's all that I see.

The next morning, both children were awakened sharply by Aunt Spiker screaming, "Aah! Spider! Vermin! Oh, beast!" She was standing by the window, smacking frantically at the spider with a flyswatter and gasping sharply. She had missed, but managed to smash the spider's web flat.
"No, wait!" James exclaimed, jumping out of the bed. Anna-Maria climbed out of bed as well.
"Sponge!" Aunt Spiker screamed.
"Wait, I'll get it! I'll get it!" James climbed onto the chair, grabbed the spider, and got back down.
"Kill it!" Aunt Spiker exclaimed repeatedly and frantically, following James and smacking him with the swatter. Anna-Maria stayed back against the wall, not wanting to be hit as well.
Aunt Sponge came into the room with bug spray. "Where is it?" She yelled, spraying gray smoke into the room. James was hit in the face, and crashed into Aunt Sponge. They both fell down to the foot of the stairs, unharmed. Anna-Maria ran down as well. She was glad her brother was u

Once they were dressedJames in an oversized green shirt, a white T-shirt underneath, blue pants and brown shoes, and Anna-Maria, who had turned three years old at that house, in a dirty, old, brown dress and black shoesthe two kids gathered the tools they needed for their chores in a wheelbarrow made from their toy chest. James pushed it out the door and down the stairs, while Anna-Maria followed close behind. She usually couldn't do much work aside from handing James tools and picking up trash, but it was better than staying with their aunts.
After their parents died, the house they lived in was sold, along with most of their possessions. Then, with only some clothes and other items in their names, James and Anna-Maria were sent off to live with their terrible aunts in an old house that looked like it could fall off of the edge of the cliff it sat on. It only had six rooms: the kitchen/dining room, the living room, the aunts' two bedrooms, a bath

That night, when the aunts came in and were counting their money, James and Anna-Maria heard their Aunt Sponge call in a sing-song voice, "Yoo-hoo! Come down here!"
James stepped down, holding Anna-Maria's hand as she toddled alongside him. "Yes, Auntie Sponge?" They both said.
"Oo-ooh! You two are all spiffed up." She said.
Indeed, James and Anna-Maria were dressed in their best clothes. James had a black suit, tan pants that ended between his knees and ankles, black shoes and socks, a white dress shirt, and a patchwork tie. Anna-Maria wore a little dress that flowed around her knees; ironically, it was peach-colored. She also had white socks and black shoes.
"We wanted to pway with the childwen." Anna-Maria explained.
The aunts glanced at each other, saying, "Awww." The Aunt Spiker told the toddler, "The children have gone."
Anna-Maria looked up at her brother, her lip quivering. "But the two of you can play with their garbage." She said, taking the bristle

Soon, they were among the clouds, making it look foggy. While James was by himself on the boardwalk—as they dubbed the fencing stuck in the side of the peach—the bugs kept Anna-Maria where they could see her in the fog. They trusted James to be by himself on the boardwalk, but Anna-Maria was only a toddler, and she could easily fall over the edge. Nonetheless, they told James to be extra careful, and not stay out too long.
Now Anna-Maria was sitting with Mr. Grasshopper and Centipede, and Mrs. Ladybug on the peach. "Well, Anna-Maria," Mr. Grasshopper said, gathering her onto his lap. "How about you tell us something about yourself?"
"I'm thwee!" She declared proudly, holding out three little fingers.
"You mean, 'three years old'." Mrs. Ladybug corrected gently.
"Yeah, tha' too." Anna-Maria nodded.

In time, nearly everyone was down in the peach. Earthworm, with the bell tied around his neck, had his head poking out of the hatch, and was lying on the peach. Mr. Centipede and James were directly under him, the former on the ladder and holding the earthworm's middle in eight of his arms, and the latter in a hollow in the tunnel. Down in the peach pit, Mr. Grasshopper and Mrs. Ladybug had hold of Earthworm's tail, waiting for James to yell to pull him down.
Anna-Maria had wanted to help. Of course, the others told her she had to stay in the pit. She threw a mini-tantrum—stomping her feet, screaming she wanted to help, and crying—before James said she could help Mr. Grasshopper and Mrs. Ladybug to pull Earthworm. Wiping her tears away, Anna-Maria agreed; and so ended her tantrum.
"They've lost their minds!" Earthworm cried out, barely moving his head. "Anything but birds!"
"Don't worry," James said from the tunnel, holding a string to grab a seagull and tie

Would you want to know?
If you could sit and talk with me,
Would you long to go?
If you could look and see right through me,
Would you look away?
And if you knew what went through my head,
Would you know what to say?
Thoughts are dark and twisted,
Full of hate and lies.
Longing to escape this pain,
And the ever watching eyes.
If you could stop and really listen,
Would you hear my screams?
If you could sit and talk with me,
Would you care about my dreams?
If you could look and see right through me,
Would you flinch at the sight?
And if you knew what went through my head,
Would you try to stop this fight?
Thoughts are black as night,
Racing bullet trains.
Longing to escape this world,
Life going down the drains.

It was 3:46 on a Tuesday morning. For most Ooo residents, this was a prime time to be socked out and asleep. This was even a dreary time for the vampires, since this time was like their '2:00' afternoon dragging feeling. Almost every creature was asleep, even if there were some awake, they were simply in a tired daze, not really thinking and instead dreaming and drifting.
Of course, dreaming and drifting was not the style for one Knight, and one Knight in particular.
Havok was not only awake, he was hyped up, he was alert, and he was currently invested in something that required lots of brain power. And yes, it was SCIENCE!

A young boy of seven years stood on the shore of the beach. He was dressed in a yellow sweater, a blue vest, tan pants, white socks, and brown shoes. He had short brown hair and brown eyes. Every now and then, he would pick up a stone, throw it out into the sea, and watch it splash into the water.
Behind him, a man dressed in a blue, long-sleeved shirt; tan pants, brown shoes, and a brown hat grabbed him up. "Hey, I've got ya!" He laughed, as James giggled.

In a short time, the bugs became some of the most famous people in New York. Nearly everyone knew who they were and how they had come to be in the most famous city of the world. And they all had their various jobs.

James stood up, holding a hand over the bag so the tongues didn't escape, and started for the house. Anna-Maria ran after him, struggling to keep up on her short legs. James slipped on one step and fell flat on his face. The bag fell to the ground, and the tongues jumped out.
"Oh! No, wait!" James exclaimed, trying to grab the tongues. They jumped quickly away from and around him, and burrowed quickly into the soil. Anna-Maria tried to grab them too, but they were to fast for her little fingers too.

She made a house from the rocks and wood, then set the charcoal around them to resemble trees, and used the remaining wood as a fence. Since there were no bugs to live in her house, Anna-Maria settled for three pieces of wood. The biggest was the father, the next biggest was the mother, and the last was the child.
