My Inner DemonHaunting, it's inside me.My Inner Demon2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Destroying, it's living.
With sharp teeth, it devours.
Strong, I rise up against it.
The deal is my soul or suffering.
The first strike is mine, but from there it's down hill.
It pushes me to the edge of insanity.
Tipping on the balance, I manage to push back.
But I never win, I never manage to land more than two blows before it strikes again.
With chains, this inner Demon of mine, binds my heart and mind.
Separated, they fight me.
How do I win?

Cut into my skin causing a crimson flow,
Oh how harsh, how cruel is the edge,
As like a knife they into my soul rip.
Broken hidden ties of golden hue band
Lie on the ground, tattered, shredded so
I cannot see even a seam worthy to mend
Answer me why with your words you flung your hand.
Sparkling stars, captured and set in gold
Look not like a heavenly constellation as before
One, two, three, four, five, the number of stars falling this night
Oh how did you so skillfully blind my eyes from seeing your red flag folded
Come night, come shadows, come nightmares, to me
Haunt me, torment me, as only you can
I lie here waiting, listless and broke
Ravage my dreams that were heavenly seen
Come Lord Of Shadows, dance ore my window sill
Slip into the light of one candle as you used to
Call to me, then take these white wings and turn them black
For I have had my fill of this commitment so ill
Ah, how I see you, a mere whisper of a shape, beautiful

why is it so hard
to say, "i love you"
those three words,
my whole mentation of you
i know that what i feel
is strong, so true
yet i'm still scared
to express myself, like
holding a 50 pound weight,
sinking in water
and i know this sounds stupid,
but i'm afraid to let go of it,
afraid to lose what i now have
knowing that, in reality
i could have so much more,
but i choose to constantly
drown myself, in love
and what i'm saying
no sense to you
but love, itself
is not sensible
and wasnt made for
us to figure out
to say, "i love you"
would be giving you
and i'm not ready, for
it to be broken, so those
in my mind
tickling my soul
roam in my thoughts
(i wish there was another way
to let you know that,
i love you)

Missing in the Back of ClassThe kid who sat in front of me in class was really quiet today. It's weird, because we usually talk a lot when we're both actually here at the same time. It was a weird day, because it seemed like everyone was in class. Like, all the seats were taken and that hardly ever happens. And when everyone's here, it's never really quiet at all. See, I go to a D.C. public high school, which, if you live anywhere around here, you'd know that we have an incredibly high absence rate. And even when there's like half the kids than normal in class, it's never quiet. I mean, sometimes I think you learn more not going to my school than when you actually go. So, most of the time it's kind of thin in school. But, there were plenty of kids in class today.Missing in the Back of Class9 years ago in Horror More Like This

Isolated against all.
Violating me day in, day out.
I give you the knife, you cut me open,
Leaving me to see what I've done wrong.
While you go play with other lives
Day in, day out.
The only people who know think I'm so happy with you.
I guess I don't want to disappoint.
And, its only when I've stopped being your shadow,
Built this wall of glass between us
While trying to fix myself with rainbow tears
Blue black and red.
Do you come back.
Apologies and kisses
To stitch the wounds, you created.
You make me feel so loved again that I stupidly forgive.
Day in day out.
Dreams become our lives,
Untill the time you do it again and,
With every passing hour I'm left,
Bleeding the black,
I sit whispering, telling myself.
You'll come back soon.

Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.
Let your lying lips come close to my ear.
Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.
Shrouding me in darkness
Have I pleased you now my "friends"?
In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

I watch my comrades die all around me.

Why don't I just throw my sword away.
Why do I still go on with this battle,

Day after day men fight and die.

What land is better then the other.
What's the use of money,

So then why do I fight,
I fight for another reason.
I fight for freedom,
I fight for those who can't defend themselfs.
I fight for the children, the elderly, the weak,
I fight those who would take away their freedoms.
That is why I still hold my blade, it is a blade of death,
but it is more, it is also a blade of justice and freedom.
I will continue on, for I must if I fail,

The one on earth keeps the other grounded.
The other in the heavens lets the other fly the sky.

The Snake's Embrace - Part 2My legs burned as I sprinted back to our house. I was in our driveway when I remembered that Sachi had taken the car. Only then did I look back at the way I had come.The Snake's Embrace - Part 26 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
There were more. A lot more. And a big group of them rushed right at me.
Though my brain seized up, my body ran. I didnt look back this time. Everything burned but the giggles and childish sounds receded. I scanned the neighborhood as it blurred past. I knew that whatever was keeping me going wouldnt last long. I had to get to a vehicle.
I noticed colorful shadows around the houses I was approaching. I guessed that those creatures were already in front of me as well. A decrepit station wagon was the only safe-haven I could see. I seized upon it.
The drivers door was locked, as were the other doors. I kicked it a few times and considered finding a brick to use on a window but, thinking ahead, I knew I would need a secure vehicle and I had no idea how to hotwire.
The giggles swelled again. I decided to bre
After Independence DayThe 10-megaton nuclear device, in the most probable outcome, would have caused serious but not irreparable damage to the Mother Ship. The world-ship was, after all, some 550 kilometers wide.  Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen design error, the main Small Craft Embarkation Area was only about 8 kilometers from the space-twisting drive, which was destabilized by the blast.After Independence Day3 years ago in Settings More Like This
As a result, the ship's mass was accelerated rather violently in all directions at once: the majority of those directions being space-time other than our own, which, combined with the fact that what mass was in our dimension was usually moving beyond earth's escape velocity, meant that although the giant ship was in a near-earth geosynchronous orbit a mere 22,000 or so miles up only a small proportion of its mass actually hit the earth (and that was generally in pretty small pieces).
Still, it was an awfully large ship.

She held her hand out and pressed it to the front of her hospital gown. Her lips trembled. She shook her head and turned away. I put my arm around her shoulder.

Alcan didnt remark this time. The kid cautiously reached out and touched the edge of his hand. She looked at him. She studied his features. He rubbed his finger against the back of her hand.
He asked her, softly, Are you happy?
She watched him, looked up at me, and asked me softly, Should I answer, Mommy Pygo? I felt stunned. It was most Id heard her say yet.
As I absorbed the idea of being called mommy, I answered, Uh sure.
The son leaned away from me and watched Folsek. She said softly, I feel very calm. Is that okay?
