"Here we are." Carter cut the engine and leaned back in his seat.
I looked at the music shop. It was eleven, and the place was totally abandoned.
Inside was pitch-black save for the moon, which splotched inside, light glinting off one lone triangle. It sparkled and glowed among the clutter.
Carter's phone buzzed from its spot in the cup holder. The silence was so loud and fragile. The cup holder vibrated with every buzz. I thought the sunroof above us was going to shatter and fall to the ground and fall from all the pressure. I felt it on me. Surely he felt the same? Probably not. Why should he be afraid?
I was waiting to be dismissed, probably with some blowphysically or mentally. It was a surprise tonight. Nothing was happening. Carter still held the wheel, staring ahead as he always did. This was so famili
MountainsI'm standing in the valleyMountains7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Up around me are the mountains
Seated there like thrones
My faith is so small
That I can't seem to move em
They stay rock solid..
But why can't I now?
Is it my faith thats wrong?
Or is it that they belong?
Still, so stuck am I...
Staring at the mountains
That I can't see your grace
For the train of your robe
Is filling the heavens
And you are seated on your throne...

Kristali natapaju zemlju,

Zagasito ljubičasto platno,

Where is she?That night was the coldest yet, to come. The streets layed waiting for an awswer. As the pitter patter of the homeless pull *their* carts to an alley. Their home sweet home. The Smell of day old bread from the bakery, laying in wait to be eaten. Treasure of one, clutched inbetween her fist. As she shacks from hungry. The hollow sounds of wild animals roaming the city. You glare upon them, as if better. You think to your self as a men gulps the last dripping achole to his tongue. "Filthy" Yes and you with the warm skin. Hidden under your sheild from the sharpened ice, coming to take your warmth. You say "Waste money on that?" Yet, it never comes to your mind. That the drink that is to much to bother with, is their only warmth. What can keep them warm longer?Where is she?2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Just one feeling..
Can cripple a grown man,
can cripple a giant,
can cripple the strongest person.
Hurricanes Can KillHurricanes Can Kill2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Words soft and subtle of a gentle wind.
They quickly turn to a full force hurricane,
Flying left and right with hurt and destruction.
Tears cant help but fall like the pelting rain,
And the lightning fills the void of each little break of the heart.
The storm soon ends and all will be calm in the following moments,
Until the real damage shows and stress becomes unbearable.
And although you can clean up,
Not everything can be fully restored.
Mending the broken hearts,
That is untouchable.
When You're YoungYour sitting at home.When You're Young2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I'm all alone.
I tried to call you
but no one answered.
Your crying your tears.
I know your fears.
I will be there
when ever you call.
You never called me.
But I can see.
I can only stand here
and watch you.
You want company.
But you won't let me.
See that you are crying.
I know you are crying.
I know you are fighting.
You are alone.
Sitting at home.
You are so sad.
Yet you are mad.
is so hard when you're young.
I Hate The WayI hate the way they're happy,I Hate The Way2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hate the way they smile.
I hate the way they pretend to care,
If only for a while.
I hate the way that they're he ones
to always get the attention.
All the opportunities they receive
are just part of my frustration.
I hate the way they're all friends,
How they form a huge group of their own.
A tight circle, letting no one in,
Making you feel so alone.
I hate the way they hate you,
Even though you've delt no wrong.
I hate the way they skip you
like another hated song.
I hate the way I hate them.
I know it's weird, but see:
I hate the way they're something
that I will never be.

A past life that
we'll never see
A song with words
we can't know
A movie with
no one to show
we see and do
In a book
not real or true
led on strings
Not even knowing
they are things

They dance among the stars.
They float in the sky.
They are cute, round and clear up there,
I watch them soar.
They move with such ease.
There are always more.
Those dancing bubbles on the breeze.

he can see it all.
He won't save me,
he will watch me fall.
I will fall,
and hit the ground.
Not ever once,
making a sound.
I'll let everything I told him,
go through his head.
I know it will happen,
when I'm dead.

Nor utter a word,
about this pain.
It hides in my chest,
I won't let it out.
It never will rest,
and that I don't doubt.
Omit MePermit me to omit meOmit Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
From your memory
I am no longer the landscape
The trees, the plane
Surrounding what I mean
I have no meaning
In the greater scheme
I am a thing
Do not share me
Or I will become stale and shallow
Speaking of lists and buying things
Milk, bread, and butter
And you will lose your grip, and I will lose
What sparkle I may have to you
My shine will tarnish
You will become blind and I
Deaf and dumb
Will continue to jump, trying to fly
I will jump higher but remain
Flat footed, grounded
My fallacy is that I am unknown
I am silence in a throne
Of broken wood, blackened time
And bits of bone
Conjuring ArmageddonSpill the virgin's blood on the pentagramConjuring Armageddon2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Summon The demons of darkness
Conjuring the souls of the damned
Bring forth the spirits of hate and malice
Exorcise the rites of hell
Call upon the dark ones
With an evil spell
The righteous ones
They die tonight
Condemning their souls
With Satan's might
The priests all will be slaughtered
And their churches will burn to the ground
In the dark lord's name they'll be tortured
Unleash the power of the goddamned pentagram
The world shall fall to ruin
The beauty of light
Now faces suffocation
Your lord shall bow before Satan
An untold, sinister judgement day
No one escapes this complete annihilation
The earth, a living Abaddon
Unleash the power of the goddamned pentagram
my bodyCan you see,my body2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is nothing more,
Then a rotting cavity,
All of the real me,
I'm hollow now,
An empty shell,
Being trapped in this body,
Is like being trapped,
In a personal hell,
These swarms of people,
Like swarms of flies,
On all I had left of myself,
Their spreading like worms,
Like maggots under my skin,
Through my flesh,
My decaying heart,
Is their new home,
I have no home,
I am the home,
For the parasites,
I can see them,
When I look in the mirror,
Off me as I decay,
My stomach swells,
With the squirming maggots.
The eat me alive,
Can you see,
I'm an empty shell,
A living hell

White gowns and long walks
What my world could be
But not in this life.
The yellow teeth clamp my dreams
Wrinkles fresh memories,which were mine to cherish
A memory of light
Before happiness went astray

standing lone and strong.
Their stance shows they're prepared to fight,
to approach them would be wrong.
Cold fire in those fearsome eyes,
intentions not unclear.
With the night as their disguise,
Poof! they disappear.

For the next couple of days I practically had Katy with me every single second of the day. I skipped school to stay with her, I ditched the gang like eighteen different times, and I wouldnt allow Katy to go to school or anywhere that I couldnt be with her.
"Come on Chris your smothering me here!" Katy pushed me off of her as she walked out of the bathroom, and I sighed. I followed her into the living room, and then she turned to me.
"Seriously Chris, I love you but I need some personal space!"
"Katy, I cant leave you alone."
"Hey, where's Alex? She should have been home like an hour ago!" Damien yelled, and I looked around frantically. OH CRAP! I'd paid attention to just katy and now Alex is gone! Shiit!
"Well call her cell or something!" I nodded, ran to the phone, and dialed the number. She picked up on the second ring.
"Alex where the hell are you?!" I yelled into the receiver, and then I froze when I heard him laughing. Oh.Hell.No.
"Well Chris, it seems like it worked! Yo

I pulled into the one space left in the airport parking lot, and grabbed my bag, stuffing my iPod and headphones back in it. I normally just used my sweatshirt to carry around my necessities, but the weather was getting so nice, a sweatshirt would only be a burden. My hair was ruffled out, falling in uneven cuts down to my shoulder blades. The sunny afternoon reflected on my outfit: a baggy white scoop neck tee, light wash capris rolled up to my knees, and red converse, which I had scribbled black stripes over.
I walked through the automatic doors. People were coming and going everywhere, toting suitcases or making plans on cell phones. A family of four happily reunited with their father in one corner. His business suit was wrinkled and untucked, his rolling suitcase's plastic handle smacking the tile as he opened his arms to them.

I sprang out of bed and began rifling through the clothes on the second shelf of my closet. "Thank God," I said in relief, holding up my skin-colored tights, black halter leotard with the teal corset stitching, and my short black spandex shorts. My neon purple sports bra was lying neatly on the floor. I was unsure if that was
clean, but whatever. It spared a run-in with my mother.
I got dressed and wrapped a few hair elastics around my wrist. I grunted, rummaging around my desk. "Foot undies, foot undies," I chanted, and found them on my chair.
I grabbed my team sweatshirt and threw on a pair of old purple flip flops. A quick sweep of my roomphone and iPod. And my dance bag must still be on my hanger in the studio's closet.
I made a mad dash out the door and piled into my car, pulling out of the driveway without hesitation. It was 6:10 now. I had woken up at 6:00.

Just a group of blurry pictures that fade throughout the day
Sometimes it makes me sad and my heart begins to hurt
Then I feel free of the mistakes from which I've learnt
Pictures and poems remind me of the pain
And to feel alive I'll read them all again
Photos and presents locked up tight
And one day I really hope I might
Find the strength in my soul
To get rid of them all.
And the memories
Will fade into
