but I remain
alone and mourning
I would devour the earth
I would drink the seas dry
I would burn the sky
and boil all human tears to nothing
I would put out the stars
I would spit on the sun
and salt my wounded eyes
to touch your hand once more.
But I am a servant
a child of dust
with no power to touch the sky.
So I will touch my heart instead
and since you cannot come back to me,
I will go to you, my hope
touch my heart and still it,
and I will come to you.
FriendshipWe would sit on your porch, drinking lemon iced tea that your mother would bring out on a tray for us. I never liked it that much, but I drank it anyhow. I liked having a friend. I was always afraid of losing you to better people. The other girls would laugh and giggle, and chase the boys. We sat on the playground instead; talking. But I could see the longing in your eyes; you wanted to go play with them instead of me.Friendship6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
One day you finally did, you left me to sit alone on the swing set.
My tears burnt my eyes, but I didn't want to let you see me cry.
The playground supervisors watched the other kids play. Every so often I would see one of them glance in my direction, but then look away. I didn't know what that meant; all I knew is that I didn't want to be seen alone.
You sat with them at lunch. You never once glanced at me alone eating my peanut butter sandwich out of my pink lunchbox with butterflies on it. I wanted to transform from this ugly caterpillar into a beautiful b

With her dancing eyes that see the world and its secrets. With lenses that catch the fairies and goblins, and the trolls that live under the bridge. With laughter reserved for the unicorn and the dragon, with his thick talons and fiery breath. With wonder for the mysteries that lurk in the darkest of corners.
With fingers that type, type, type away on the keyboard as she struggles to pour out her soul. With a mind that thinks, thinks so hard, trying to figure out a way to capture her imagination and unleash it onto the paper. With words that fall from her lips like diamonds, sparkling in the pale moonlight, as she tries so hard to reveal herself.
With the courage of a soldier who faces the heat of the battle, his limbs empty of all energy and his spirit all but shattered. With the bravery of a skydiver, hurtling towards the ground so fast that the bones might split upon impact and she might finally break. With the mind of an inventor, so
Mirror Mirror on the WallYou stand in front of the mirrorMirror Mirror on the Wall5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking for some answers
You hope that in your reflection
You'll find some truth and clarity
Believing that life will be easier
If you saw yourself the way others did
As you stand clueless staring into the mirror
Your reflection mimics your every move
You twist your lips and fake a smile
And the world concludes that your ecstatic
You cross your brows and frown
And they assume your enraged
You force yourself a chuckle
And your counterpart copies your movement
Yet no sound comes out of it
You scream to let your agony out
yet the reflection remains speechless
You finally hold your clenched fist up
And punch the mirror with all your might
As its pieces shatter to the floor
You break yourself free from the judgment of the world
You lay your eyes on your bloody knuckles
But you smile as if you feel no pain
You finally realize that there's more to you than meets the eye
The shallow world may judge on your appearance
But only a few will truly hear

I want to cram clouds into my mouth until my cheeks bulge, choke myself on them. I want to feel clouds pouring from my ears and my nose in fluffy streams, tickling the back of my throat, lovingly whispering for entrance to my padlocked heart.
When the moon comes out to play, I'll capture it in my hands, like a firefly, and I'll press my eye against a crack in my fingers to watch its star-studded wings flutter frantically against my palms.
I'll suck handfuls of stars like boiled sweets until they're fragile enough to crunch, exhale peppermint star dust into the black sugar-paper sky and laugh at the beauty of it all. I'll floss my teeth with lightning bolts, capture thunderclaps in bell jars, use rainbows as shoelaces and necklaces and bracelets.

My footsteps echo...
I come across a bench
mostly covered in fog and leaves.
As I stand, I stare down at the bench.
It appears old.
Obviously, no one has sat on it for years.
The bench stares up at me, returning my sympathetic gaze.
We're both alone.

Every time you hold me, even in a small way,
It becomes all I want to feel,
Everything I want to last,
And the only thing in this world I don't want to end.
Sometimes I wonder if you could feel it too..
The way I try to wrap you in my arms,
The way I'm torn between the feelings of wanting more,
And the fear of losing myself in your warmth.
It's like the warmth in your voice when you speak to me,
The warmth in your eyes when you see me smile.
It's like a sense of love I crave to no end,
And something that always makes me hungry for more.
Bipolar DisorderI am a victim of a shadow named fourteenBipolar Disorder3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And a little girl, my old best friend who turned into a demon.
Fourteen human figures without a face… they attack my soul
And everybody’s staring at me without an honest reason.
I am a victim of the people of the world
Who only want to hurt me, and my innocent family
Terrified of the ones around me, even those I love
When a nightmare becomes my reality.
I can’t take a shower without peeking outside the curtain
And I can’t close my eyes when I wash my hair
Because I’m horrified, afraid that when I open them
I’ll see somebody with a bloody face angrily standing there.
Sometimes I unlock the doors and then lock them again
And to be honest, I’m not completely sure why
And I can’t go upstairs at night, because what if there’s a fire?
I won’t be able to make it out in time.
I am a victim of a shadow named fourteen

Shou sighed. What was he supposed to wear? Should he dress casual? Wear something fancy? One of his outfits for concerts?.. Was this even an official date? The vocalist lightly smacked his head on the wall. Then, he got an idea.
- Kai's house -
The door bell rang.
"Coming!" Kai called. He ran down the stairs and opened the door. The GazettE's drummer smirked as he saw his visitor. "Nice."
In front of him Shou wore a jet black sweat shirt with a white tie and black skinny jeans. It wasn't fancy, but it wasn't casual either.
"It was kinda hard to pick out clothes today." he scratched his cheek, smiling pathetically.
Kai smiled. "You look nice though."
Shou took a good look at Kai. He wore a tight blood red shirt and navy blue jeans. He was dressed nice, but casual. A pang of attraction hit Shou's stomach.
"Come in." Kai said.
Sitting on Kai's kitchen counter was 3 different dishes of food. The simple scent of the food made Shou's mouth water.
"Choose whichever you like." Kai smiled.

Reita still on his knees; staring on the floor; waiting for his father to give him an answer. No matter his father forgive him or not, that would never change his love towards Uruha. He closed his eyes, prepared to get pound or a lecture from his father. Being the only son from the Akira family, it is pretty hard for him to choose in between being a good son and find a wife or continue to protect his love.
"Reita, I have been always supporting you, giving you freedom to choose and you choose a man instead of a woman. How could you?" Mr. Akira gave him a cold stare. He felt that he wanted to take back his words when he saw Reita's gloomy face. Mr. Akira was glad that his son would tell him the truth like he always does.
"Dad, I know this is my entire fault, I should have loved a girl but I love him more than I could love anyone." Reita tried to convince his father to accept what he had chosen.
Mr. Akira glared at Reita after slapping on the table, "You are going way too far!"

He walked into the living room searching for Reno. Usually after their intercourse, Reno would have a smoke beside Ko-ki's sleeping body.

The Illusion of TimeSome say time exists only in the mind, that it is the greatest illusion .

And yet, for those who can step beyond the curtain, who can step into the backroom and witness the mechanics of how time coils around itself, how it traverses the inner spaces of hearts, encompassing everything, everyone How it is time that is the thread that links the universe, holding all things in perfect harmony with fragile gossamer, until it's time to cut the chord and find eternity.
All that's been said can be seen as truth, unless you're thrown in the current of time like two birds from the hands of a grand illusionist.
In time, they'd grown to accept the petrified state of the ungraspable abstract, time, that the two forevers effortlessly flew amidst and in between like the flow of time

And expose the truth,
With steady hands that will not fail.
Hold still despite the stench
That wraps around the cold night air,
Sweet like cigars
And nauseating like nitroglycerin.
Pull away the rickety seal
That bleeds beetles
And rains mildew upon a father's face.
Within the parting silk it lays,
Two letters with poorly typed names
Of abandoned children
Who only have a mothers embrace.
Sitting back against moist ground
Feet pressed idly on coffin walls,
The answers come to life.
Jumbled words of New Zealand and Australia
Stand out amongst the tainted surface
And whisper the simplicity of this angst.
Love cannot bridge oceans.

Shrapnel flying through the air
As my friends run for cover,
Me among them.
I have heard
The sound of bombs, of gunshots
Cries of terror of the frightened, the fallen
Wailing sobs of those who mourn.
I have seen
The darkness of the night
Lingering over a stormy ocean
With only a single boat sitting there
As I make my way across the harbor.
I have heard
Only eerie silence of escape
Stifled tears of my companions,
Wondering whether we will live.
I have felt
The dismay of seeing neverending sea,
Fear for my life, for others
A want to be only back home.
The horror of gunshots raining down
Anxiety and worry as I pretend to be dead
While others are not pretending.
I have heard
My classmate cry out in pain,
Begging for water from his father
To sooth his bleeding eye.
