I lie, I cheat, I steal
I love, I hope, I dream

Every human makes mistakes
Every human is just like me

Though you may not agree
Its my imperfections that make me perfect
In each and every way

Though you may not agree
If I were meant to be perfect
Then I wouldnt be me
Im the perfect person

Your eyes glazed over in perpetual thought
And I wondered how many times you've left the toilet seat up,
Ate from my fridge, and did not pick up the tab.
I waited anxiously for that breath of life that would free me.
The moment seemed to last one moment too long.
Then it hit me.

Once upon a time, (Your Full Name) and Daniel Miccile fell in love and got engaged.
(You make think this'll end with "and they lived happily ever after."
But, it most certainly won't.
Let us continue.)
However, their jobs didn't pay them enough to allow them to tie the knot.
So, let us progress two years forward from then.
They have saved up lots of money to finally be wed. Every spare penny, every dime on the ground, and any gift money was donated to their cause.
But then, one night, fiance Daniel Miccile went out to a bar with several of his friends. He was a well-behaved man, so he only had two drinks and then sat down to discuss life with his friends.
Suddenly, a fight broke out between two men. What it sounded like it was about was of course, a woman.
The fight started out to be shouts and insults, but soon got very psychical.
Soon many men foolishly joined in. This was partly caused by their lack of being sober. Other people just thought it was fun.
Daniel ran over and bravely st

Yes, I wear guy clothes- they're more comforable.
Yes, I have short hair- it's easier to style.
That doesn't make me less of a woman.
So why all the dirty looks from other women,
As I walked out of the locker room, eyes down,
Wearing my dark androgenous clothes?
Underneath I am still a woman.
Why all the looks from the lifeguards at the pool,
When I was swimming workouts with a group of guys?
I'm wearing clothes over my bikini,
But I am no less of a woman.
Yes I have a stern face and tense jaw.
If you knew my thoughts, you would too.
I am stoic and reject my emotions;
That doesn't mean I'm not a woman.
CagedHave you ever been locked in a cage?Caged3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dog crates can be unlatched from the inside.
I can pop out ceiling tiles over an equiptment cage.
With determination, I can scale a barbed wire fence.
Every physical cage I have been in, I've found a way out of.
But not all cages are physical.
For years I was trapped in a cage called Abuse.
Through fear and "respect", I was unable to fight.
Another cage layer was depression.
With time they were unlocked
By an unknown keeper of keys.
There is one cage today
That still locks me tight.
It wards away hugs, and kisses, and love.
For years I have tried to break out
Of this cage some say I built for myself.
This cage is called "______sexuality"

Only in his mind. No time to look upon the unique bird as it catches a current

"Winry," A kind voice spoke from the small kitchen, soft eyes turning to look at her daughter as she smiled kindly, "Honey, could you please take this basket and pick some cherries for me? I'd like to make a pie for your Father when he gets home."
The little girl came running into the kitchen as she heard her Mother's request, hugging her leg gently as she smiled brightly up at her; nodding her head. "Okay, Mommy," Winry mumbled happily as she was handed the basket; unclinging herself.
"Make sure to be careful--"
"I will!" Without another second's notice the little girl was out of the house in a flash, holding the basket in her hand gently. She started to run towards the field where the trees were, if anyone from Resembool needed cherries or apples, then they all would go. Everyone knew eachother there, so it didn't really matter if they shared them all. Winry came to a slow stop when she spotted one of the smaller trees, pouting lightly.

Put some music on to the set the mood, just right.
I see you looking at me like I've finally lost my mind
But I'll just smile and reassure you "I'm doing fine."
I'll make excuses and claim that last months bill was too high
And I'll pray to mercy that you'll let it slide.
Oh, and the music? Well look at my collection of CDs
Love songs are all I have, you'll see.
Let me break out the strawberries and some cream
I've been trying to eat healthier--just let me be.
Isn't this to die for? Oh please don't leave.
This is a night of innocence. Please just believe.
Except I'm feeling nervous. You're looking at me strange
I try to busy myself and begin to rearrange--
Ah, yes, the pillow looks perfect right there.
Now I'll just comb my fingers through my hair.

From a womans mistake and a serpents grin
The action that started it all would be me
In that place of beauty and that forbidden tree
My first meal was one of hate and rage
My brothers death. The first of that age.
I tasted his blood and hungered for more,
I waited, wondering what fate had in store.
For years I went hungry, unable to feed
Until the rage of the creator was freed
As the waters that poured I consumed them all
I devoured the world, but for a ship floating small
From that boat they regrew, alive yet again
I happily plagued them, the bane of men
Doing as commanded, I punished when told
Eating crops as locusts, swallowing sinners whole
But it wasnt enough, my hunger remained
so I slipped from my leash and all chaos reigned
as fire I consumed them, as beast and disease
but the creator that loved them was hearing their pleas
So I was chained, my freedom was lost
The price of my service was too great a co

Germany's palms began to sweat as he watched Italy move his paintbrush gracefully over the piece of canvas. A drop of sweat trickled down the back of his neck, and his stomach seemed to be caught in his throat. His knees shook slightly, and a hint of scarlet tinged his cheeks and the tip of his nose.
The German scanned the sheet of music over once more, hoping that every error had been fixed, and everything was absolutely perfect. It had to be.
I've played this about a thousand times, of course it's perfect! He thought, looking back up at the cheerful brunette. I just hope it's perfect enough for him
Germany walked nervously towards the Italian, his knees shaking violently with sweat dripping down his back. Italy didn't seem to pay much attention to him, as he was focusing on putting on the finishing touches to his painting of a bowl of pas

America was coming over to celebrate with him, and he was bringing the Turkey and some of his friends over.
