my mind will still be a mess,
and my heart will still be a wreck,
but I will have an understanding
of how friendships
form and fall apart,
but it won’t be your fault;
it’s never your fault.
But my eyes are still dry,
for the time being,
and I am okay that we may
not be friends next week,
but I will keep our happiest
memories to myself to
use when my heart wants
nothing more than to
call you and ask you how you

I Bóg pomyślał, że chyba człowieka stworzył
Że ostatniego dnia pracy nie wyszła Mu doskonałość
Ulepił, zważył i zmierzył
i sam musiał to przyznać
iż miast ideału stworzenia powstał jedynie
Więc zebrał się w sobie potrójnie
pot tęczą zwilżył Mu czoło
i zaczął poprawiać sam siebie
Wziął żebro i nieskończoność
ozłocił pyłem piękności bezkresy wdzięku, talentu
Duszę w ten sposób powstałą przyodział w gwiezdność diamentów
Oprawił w ciało z kryształów
kwitnących wzdłuż mlecznych dróg
Tak powstał pierwszy poemat
(bo pierwszym poetą był Bóg)
Idea tworzenia przyświeca
z przedwiecznych marzeń i złudzeń
A Strange Letter FoundA Strange Letter Found8 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
A much-folded and faded letter was found among the personal papers of Professor Howard Rice after his death in 1936. The contents, more than a little puzzling and troubling, are presented here unedited for your review.
June, 17th, 1908.
My Dear Friend Howard,
I am writing to you, from my room at the Kempler Arms, a run-down inn located in the God-forsaken port of Rockfish Harbor, North Carolina. I have just drank the contents of a bottle of brandy in the vain attempt to calm my nerves enough that I may commit the events of the last few days to paper before I collapse into much needed slumber.
I came here, as you may recall, to study the lasting enigma of the disappearance in 1587 of the English colony on Chapanoke Island. In my mind, it is a great mystery, more than worthy of ranking alongside the more commonly known tale of the Mary Celeste. As you may remember, she was an abandoned ship found off the coast of Portugal in 1872. None of the her crew or passengers were ever found

I listened to you cry and heave empty breaths of air into the phone for ten minutes straight, all the while trying consistently to hold myself together.
I wouldnt allow myself to let you see me in pieces.
The thought of being without you hurt like pins in my heart,
But I wouldnt give in. When did I stop being so strong?
My mind rotated at miles a minute and my heart just thumped irregularly, so bad that I actually had to count my breaths in and out.
And what am I know? What relief do I have from all that pain?
Im too stupid to admit that I still need you,
But Im lenient enough to say that I do miss you, that maybe this was something a little larger than another relationship to write down in my little black book.
I remember how you would lay your head on my chest and listen to my heartbeat.
I would give anything to fall asleep to that each night.
And my fingers feel numb without your lips,
And how youd kiss each tip,

A Vampire's KissMy teeth,A Vampire's Kiss8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Long and sharp,
Run up and down your shivering body,
Gently, like playing a harp.
Long, soft strokes,
My snow white hand moves,
And grabs your head,
While my voice soothes.
I whisper calming thoughts,
Putting calming things in your mind,
With my voice and my eyes,
I hold you in a bind.
Yet that does not stop the shivering,
The fear in your face,
You do not understand,
Me, or my race.
Tempted, and temped no more,
My long-since dead heart beats,
Wanting to live again,
Wanting to taste your blood like sweets.
It is no longer I can wait,
I sink my fangs into your flesh,
Into that skin so pale with fear,
The skin of a maiden, so very fresh.
I wait for but a moment,
Until your fear turns to pleasure,
Still in my bind,
The pleasure I can measure.
Higher than sex,
But only good for one,
At least you don't have to worry,
About bearing me a son.
Your blood, filled with pleasure,
Seeps past my lips,
It's texture, it's power,
I drink it slowly, only in sips.
Strong like wine,

What is Democratic Socialism?What is Democratic Socialism?3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.
Doesn't socialism mean that the government will own and run everything?
Democratic socialists do not want to create an all-powerful government bureaucracy. But we do not want big corporate bureaucracies to control

In a mad dash we go quick
Into the unknown
Sirens blaring loud
Red lights casting dark shadows
Into the night air
Unsure of what is
We venture into the night
To help a victim
We do it for them
Not for gratification
But to help someone
Many dont get it
Its a firefighter thing
Thats all I can say
To save a person
Or a belonging or friend
Is one thing we do
Protection of lives
Is another specialty
That we believe in.

"Just 5 more minutes' honey," responded Mandy as she dug her head deeper into her pillow.
"Just be out of bed before I'm out of the bathroom please honey. We have a lot of work to do today in preparation for the horse race we have next week," said Robert matter of factly.
That is when both of them heard what seemed to be clomping downstairs. Mandy suddenly was wide awake and jumped out of bed. Robert seemed confused but attentive.
"What is that!? Is that a horse I hear downstairs?' said Mandy puzzled. 'If that is our daughter downstairs ruining the tile floor then she is deep trouble." Mand

That was a year ago, when Slender man came. I still don’t believe it, a killer who didn’t kill.
Christmas Eve, yet another snowy day of December. I walk down the cracked pavement towards home. I hug my puffy coat against me. Cold air whips against my face. I lick my cracked lips. A few snowflakes scatter to the ground.
“Hey Chris,” I turn around and narrow my eyes at a dark figure behind me; my ex-boyfriend TJ. Who else would call me by my nickname, Chris, instead of Christina, my real name? “I said never to talk to me again.” I growl, trying to sound intimidating. He walks over to me. Huh, his cheek is still swollen from the last time I saw him, when I punched him, hard.
“C’mon babe,” he touches my shoulder. I jerk away. “Are you still mad at me?”

I gasp as we plummet to the ground. “You idiot!” I shout, hitting his chest over and over again. “I’m dead now!” Maybe that’s what he’s been planning all along.

Oto miejsce gdzie w mroku
łózko leży samotnie
Patrzy w sufit i tęskni
z ziewającym wraz oknem
Z boku na bok się rzuca
ale zasnąć nie może

Ile nocy upłynie, ile gwiazd jeszcze spłonie
zanim w nim zamiast "o mnie"
będzie "o mnie i o Niej"
I wypluwa mi pościel
i odgryza mi sen
Ja zaś mylę cierpliwie, kiedy przyjdzie ten dzień
że już przyjdzie ta noc, gdy ten pokój

kiedy razem z poduszką będziesz kłaść się co wieczór

kiedy razem z talerzem, kotem, stołem i ścianą
zjemy szybko śniadanie i wyjdziemy gdzieś żyć

"Just another day, the shame is gone, hard to believe, that I've let it go, let it go." Zev sang quietly, staring at her reflection in the bathroom mirror. Her darkly-lined eyes stared back. She sighed and looked over her outfit. A red and black striped shirt adorned her torso and a simple long black skirt adorned her lower half. Tall black boots reached to just below her knees. They made her about three inches taller.
She walked out of the bathroom to the brightly lit hotel room. Mustis lay motionless on the bed, staring up at the ceiling silently. He wore long black pants that met simple boots. His black button-up shirt clung to his frame.
Zev stood, leaning in the doorway, watching him. She sighed and walked over, sitting down on the edge of the bed next to him. She looked from the half-empty bottle of Absinthe on the nightstand to Mustis' hollow green eyes. Next to the Absinthe was a pack of clove cigar

I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.

Fare was not your average 14 year old boy. No matter what he did, no one would accept him for who he was. Sure, you could blame it on the fact that he was a four-eyed brace-face looser who did nothing but watch T.V., surf the web, and play video games. But the real problem lied deeper than that. The real problem was his personality. He was what most people would call "immature". Although he was 14 and in fact was mature, he had a deep, burning, passionate obsession, Dragons. Of course everyone teased him about it, but he didn't mind. He was more of a loner himself and liked his space. If he could he would much rather hang out with his pets and talk to them instead. He always felt so awkward in large groups of people, but seeemed to feel right at home with animals.
