the smell of citrus you bring, and your shirt on my floor.
sometimes i think about the spaces between your fingers and
the lines in your lips-
the way you laugh tickles my heart because then
your eyes sparkle like crystals in the sun.
sometimes you remind me of cherry blossom carpets and
the fresh rainforest smell.
you are more than what i deserve.
that pink stain you left on my pillow, those
harp-string lullabies you sang into my eyes-
they are reminders of how much you meant to me.
sometimes i wish for the melancholy of your eyes,
when i dream of past summers. my memories play on repeat:
thoughts of you, thoughts of you, thoughts of you.
time had stopped, right at the moment your eyes met mine,
and on the occasions i'm not crying into tea cups,
the world is the memory of your eyes and they way they smiled,
even when i didn't, like the last ray of light before the sun sets.
but your gaze will never fail to remind me
that i will always be a

sitting in the rain washes away my pain
standing in the forest amazes me
staring at the stars makes me wonder
i can let out all my sadness in the rain
it washes away the tears that i cry
it cools me down when i'm angry
and it makes me want to sing
the forest entrances me all the time
the endless amount of enormous trees
the quiet stillness of calm animals and wind
and the beautifulness of all the different plants
the stars make me think about so much
i wonder about how small we really are
i wonder if there are other planets with life
and i wonder what happen after we die
nature helps me feel happy
even when i am depressed
i will love nature forever
it knows me best

My aurora borealisThe Aurora Borealis is a wonder to behold.My aurora borealis8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Not many know of it in the manner I do, for she
only comes out at night in fear of retribution.
Shes quite shy at times, but can you blame her in this world?
Oh but when she does come out from that black blanket of stars,
her beauty is intense. Much like that of the amaranth.
I am quite fond of spending hours just staring in awe as she dances among the stars.
Some people think I am crazy for spending so much time with
something I can never reach. But It is here in the snowy desolate woods
that I feel least alone. For underneath this amazing light show, I feel no pain,
no fear, no sorrow. Just an overwhelming feeling of warmth, inspiration, and love.
The kind of love that will never leave my side. Not for long at least. I can always
count on her to appear again at night. Sure, sometimes shes gone for awhile. She
always returns to me though.
In a way, shes a lot like Quan Yin. Her many arms embracing me, and keeping me

You Renew MeYou Renew Me5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Burdened with sorrow
I hoped for tomorrow
Man nor Woman could be trusted
I can't believe I lusted
Show me love
So I can trust
I admit my faults
Please don't let me fall
I cry out!
and you hear me
I pray now!
and you bless me
I lay it down
and you free me
I die now
and you renew me
I dwelt in the past
I tried to make it last
The future's now
No longer bound
You showed past's destruction
My future's Liberation
I found you
I'll praise you!
Renew me! Jesus.
You have set me free!
No longer depression's slave
I know you'll show me the way
In Jesus' name, Amen.

I can see that
everyone else is blind.
My Love will save you.
My Grace will redeem you.
I see each and every one.
I see their faults and mistakes,
as well as their passions and inner truths.
I would sacrifice All for them,
as I would for you.
In my eyes,
there is no difference
between the beggar and the king.

The Missionary's Drawing
His eyes are lingering on the bloodstained floor and he wonders just how much of it is left inside him. He should be afraid. In fact, it's what his captors want -- but he is holding fast to his faith. They demand him to refuse his Father's name. It infuriates them so for them to see him take strength in something they do not understand. Because, really, we most fear the things we cannot grasp. It's the unknown that scares a small child when he says there may or may not be a monster beneath his bed or hiding in the darkness. Not that there is one: That there may be. He can see the uncertainty in these men's eyes: There may be a God hiding somewhere and when He finds them, what happens then?
He doesn't hate them. He pities them. Each time they dunk his head under water or beat him with a whip, cut off his fingers, he prays for them. He prays that they be forgiven. They are ignorant, afraid, children in the shells of gruff men. They don't know what they're

The First HourI'm lying here, staring blankly at a barren ceiling. Emptiness fills my mind with thoughts of despair. The darkness of night is beginning to blanket the room. Obscurity, mocking me straight into my eyes and mind taking away the minuscule amount of happiness left over from another passing day.The First Hour6 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Really, where has life taken me? This moment was never in my plans. What is my purpose? No one has an ounce of trust in me. What should I do now? Reality seems to be such a cruel world to live in.
The first vicious battle has been won, but does the war ever end?
Now looking out a slightly frosted window I see a single star brightly glaring amongst a thinly clouded night sky. I am no longer alone in this sea of dejection. Light from a single star has ignited positivity in my mind and emotions.
Is this a new beginning? The dust of massive destruction is starting to clear. Am I born again? This is the first hour of a new life. Where shall I begin? Admissio

Part I - The Big Four: Exploring Plot Types
Before we start, it will be prudent to know what kind of plot you seek for your project. There are four main types that we will explore here:
- The character-driven plot.
- The event- or situation-driven plot.
- The world-driven plot.
- The concept- or theme-driven plot.
The character-driven plot is employed in stories that are propelled forward by the learning, changing character or characters. Harry Potter is an example of character-driven plot. I have one friend who is absolutely certain that this is the future of literature, because of the way we view and understand the human psyche.
The event-driven plot takes as its focus the events or chains of events that affect characters and the world in which the story is set. Choose-your-own adventure books are event-driven. Another example is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, in which the absurd situations that arise out of the setting are the main focus of the novel and the charact
