A word I didn't know the meaning of
Not until you held me in your arms
Not until I felt your breath on my face
And the beat of your heart in my ear
A word that had no meaning
'Til I saw the mask you wear shatter
And for once I saw the person that was inside
A person with weakness but so much more strength
A word without meaning
Until you wiped away my tears
Until you let me cry as you held me tight
Until I sobbed into your chest only to have you pull me back together
You are my strength
You are my power
You are my weakness
You are my everything
For you I will be strong

blinded by hate
seeing only what rage allows
scars that won't heal.
brands that won't fade.
hiding pain behind
painting eyes in darkness
a darkness that torments.
inside it dwells
regret of a wasted
feeding this hate
won't change a thing
nothing done has made life better.
take the chance
grasp the outstretched
hand of freedom
to the future
walk away from this hell.
La buena criticaLa buena critica7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Como realizar una buena crítica
Los seres humanos estamos acostumbrados a dar nuestra opinión acerca de lo que pensamos, sentimos y hacemos, ya sea en los demás o en nosotros mismos.
Generalmente la palabra critica es algo que no nos suele gustar. Muchos lo toman, tal vez con más frecuencia de lo que parece, como algo negativo. Ejemplos: Estoy cansado de tus criticas! Eres un criticón! Siempre criticas todo!
Incluso a muchos les asustan frases como: ¿Te puedo hacer una critica? (Pregunta de la cual siempre esperamos lo peor )
Muchas veces queremos aliviar este tema de la crítica, suavizándolo, diciendo la gran frase: crítica constructiva (la cual muchos hacen o toman como destructiva)
La palabra critica proviene del griego (kritikós) que significa capacidad para discernir. ¿Pero que se entiende por discernir?. Es diferenciar una cosa de otra, y se asocia
Goodbye ForeverSo we havent talkedGoodbye Forever7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
And its almost been
That you used to hang around
Since youve been here
And the clouds they turned white
After they faded from your glory
No one knows
But I still remember your story
I thought youd return
But now it is clear
Youve faded into the crowd
And it looks like the missing girl
Is never coming back
So now youre gone again
So long again
This time forever
You let me down
You watched me cry
My heart wavers
And all my trust was in you
But you threw it out
You didnt pull through
I guess you feel like youre home again
But youre wrong
It tore me apart
The day you left
I didnt smile for months
Not even when you tripped
I thought I wanted to end my life
Or it would all be better
If I made you cry
I thought Id feel alive
Now I dont feel like
Theres anything to believe in
Youre moving on
Youre really leaving
So now youre gone again

Miss Lady Love // thezimchick
It was a foolish thing to ever fall for
That something special, that something more
There's no waking in the dark of night
When there's no alarm-clock or morning light
That's why she has her claws 'round your soul
Scissor-like nails to keep it under control
And when push comes down to shove
She'll rip you apart: Miss Lady Love
You thought you'd forget the feeling, (feeling)
But the gears in your head keep wheeling, (wheeling)
You thought you were in heaven, but you were just dreaming
And they left you broken hearted, screaming, (screaming)
Stuck in your mind like post-it notes
Everything they said, everything they wrote
She keeps the archive nice, tidy and neat
She wouldn't want you to forget the deceit
It's your fault, your loss, and you are to blame
Start shedding those tears, "Oh, what a shame"
Black-hearted and bitter, that vindictive little bitch
She's that part of your brain you just can't itch
Her laugh, it haunts you, ringing, (ringin

"What is it?" He asked, taking it.
"It's a one-way, listening devise. I can talk to you, and no one else can hear me." Tai explained, "Put it into your ear." She instructed.
He put it into his ear, "Can you also hear me?"
"Yes, I can." She said, "Hold on, one sec." She went into the other room for a minute and came back out with a mircophone. "Hello. Hello? Can you hear me, Ash?" She asked into the head of it.
"Hey, I can hear you, awesome!" Ash exclaimed, "Okay, let's do it!"
"Wait, let's get you.... presentable." Tai said, running over to his closet. "Hmm... What's her favorite color again?"
"Blue, why?" He answered.
"Wear this.... oo, with this shirt." She said throwing out a blue shirt with a blue colar, and jeans with a little hole in the pants leg.

Baby, you're dying hardcore.I reach for a hand that's not there. You smile and fall and put on a stare, you're scared, you're lost, and for christ's sake, your eyes aren't deceiving your biggest mistake. You skip hearts you drown beats and you're starting to scare me, losing grip, fighting reality, you're starting to tear away my biggest defence, my violent arguments and for once in your life you're shutting me up. You're telling me you've had enough. And with a simple brush, of lips you declare you're going to give me your courage, your everything. Even that burning sting developing behind your eyes when you're dying to cry, covering up lies, devoring obvious ties. I know it's not the same (fingers moving, heart racing) and it's definetly not the fame (shaking arms, kissing teeth) but maybe it's the shame. Yeah, it's gotta be the shame.

Music Is...What is music?Music Is...8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A little boy asked me that today.
I bent down so that our faces were level
And then I said to him with a smile,
Why do you care?
Out of so many people today
Why do you care?
He looked back at me
His eyes too thoughtful for his age
And he said right back to me,
Because I want to make good music.
I liked that answer, and I told him so.
He was happy and he smiled.
Take my hand, I said, and walk with me now
And I will show you those things that proper music make.
He put his small hand into mine and came with me.
I didnt know what to make of this, he trusted me.
But I led him along, and as I did I pointed out
Some of those things that proper music make.
Music, I said, is the harmony in the world
Brought together to create a myriad of sensations.
Music is our footsteps on the ground
Music is my walking with you.
Music is that ancient couple over there
See how elderly they are, yet they see each

"Goddamit!" Christoph growled in a berlin accent, dropping his drumsticks in a temper. It's just this one song...this one song he cannot get the beat right. He leaned back, the chair tipping a bit letting him rest his back against the ice cold wall. He had the guitars in his head...Till singing the lyrics....even Flakes keyboard. He wanted to make the song sound good for this new album...he didn't want to let the fans down. With a sigh he brushed some of his hair out of the way, trying to recollect his thoughts through his anger. Benzin...he had no problem playing...Rosenrot..same old same old just keep the beat and it'll come out right. But damn he just couldn't get the feeling right for this one. He even knew the lyrics because Till couldn't stop playing around with his voice on them in the recording studio. "Cmon Doom pull yourself together and play the stupid song..." He said to himself looking at the carpet floor for his sticks. Lifting the cymbal and moving the snares in

Its fucking freezing, Dev muttered as a gust of cool air slid up his sweater, a violent shiver wracking his body.
It is nearly Christmas, Dev, Jerry laughed, bouncing along beside him along the sidewalk. And you are just wearing a sweater.
Dev scowled. Its a warm sweater, and it isnt that far from the car to Jessicas house.
Then quit complaining, Jerry grinned, seemingly impervious to the cold as his thin shirt rode up an inch or two in time with his stride. Jerry gave Dev a wicked look. Or maybe I should say stop trying to get Jos to press up against you and warm you up. Were going to a party, after all, and I dont think you want to put on a show for people. A delicate pause. Another one, that is.

You smell of sex and cheap cologne
with eight or nine marks across your neck that scream
I am yours.
I asked you silently to count my flaws
so I could tear myself apart
and feel a little less perfect with your arms around me.
Maybe then I could tell you that my tears
are not as useless
as they are now.
I am addicted to the way you move
and watching your eyes drift close just before we kiss.
The passion in your voice when you whisper
I love you
through heavy breathing makes my heart skip a beat or two
and I find myself praying that if I am dreaming
I never wake up.
The tragedy of losing this reality is enough
to make my shoulders shake uncontrollably with broken sobs.
But your skin is soft
against mine. Caressing away my self-dou

The next morning, Kent woke a bit earlier then usual, and was happier then usual as well; his mother noticed.
"Are you feeling alright? Its 9:00, you're awake...and you're smiling...should I call the doctor?" Kent's mother teased.
"Ha, ha, very funny." Kent replied with a half smile. "I'm going down to the park in a bit, kay?"
"The park?" Kent's mother looked at him hard. "I thought you hated the park...what makes you want to go there all of a sudden?"
Kent thought about this for a moment while making some toast for breakfast. To wait for Mike, is what he wanted to say, but he decided against that.
"Not like there's much to do here, might find something a bit better down there." Kent finally replied and stuffed a piece of toast in his mouth.

Jerry huddled in the stands, Rene on one side of him, September on the other, his eyes glued to the ass of the cutie standing two rows down from them. Man, what was in the water here? He thought, casting his eyes around. I've never seen such a concentration of hot men all in one place.
Jerry blinked. Damn, he thought with a twist of his lips. I'm starting to sound like September.
"There must be a high dosage of hotnase in the waters here," September commented, right on cue.
Rene cocked her head. "Hotnase? You mean hotness?"
Jerry waited a moment, then prompted "And what is hotnase?"
"Enzyme in the water," a voice behind them commented.
"Yes," September agreed. "We learned about it."

Sometimes LoveI only love you sometimes,Sometimes Love9 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You are my sometimes love,
Whom I love when,
Memories grip me and,
That feeling returns.
But I do not love you,
Most of the time.
The moments I can control,
I am free,
Free from loving you.
Then that feeling returns,
Again that softens me,
Makes me so vulnerable and
I push it down, down,
Bury it deep within my heart,
A single glance,
Is all it takes to revive it again.
I hate you for that,
I hate that you have so much
Control over me when,
I'd rather give my heart
To a beast kinder than you.
What is that foreign thump thump?
That refuses to obey what
My mind does demand,
Whose thumping increases
A thousand-fold with your smile?
In these moments I hate you,
When you look at me I burn
With anger, whose fire
Once faded, turns
Back into love.
I said I hate you,
I swore I would yet,
Why is it that it is your face
That haunts my dreams
Longing for your love?
