You're Only What You SeeI hear them say, one by one, each in their own little way, "I'd like to know that somebody cares, even if it were only for a day." Every thought is simply embedded in the back of their heads, shackled to the complex corners of their walls, transfixed in a grotesque fashion on a detest day, strewn upon the strands of their lives like a feeble flower withering in the pestilence of their waning spirit. Once in a weary morning, you wake aloft to the promising scent of life, its pleasance and prominency assuring the independant happiness that expands inside of you. A few years later, on behalf of my desirous heart, I shall hear them say one by one once more, lacking their fear, "I know that somebody loves me somewhere out here."You're Only What You See3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Get thee goneThine eye doth splinter me like winter's sting.Get thee gone3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Thin dour contempt for yester' careless fling.
So soon hast summer's contemplative dread.
Turned limply as the coverlets on thy bed.
Where icy fingers trailed a loathsome touch.
Belying crackled smile that promised much.
When days with thee shortened with seasons chill.
As beguiling plans so laid promised me ill.
A putrid mix of hoary witches in thy blood.
Erupting forth as icy waters at the flood.
Yet shall I now be free from odorous wench.
Cloying scent doth urge my vomit wrench.
Now I shake myself apart of clawing spite.
To watch thy being dissolve into the night.
God help all men who suffer thy evil thorn.
The foulest corner of hell thou were so born.

alone, tears on my cheek.
at home, third this week.
sometimes, i dont have the strength to speak,
but id say, you mean the most to me.
and even when things look bleak,
we'll be okay, we've got the east coast to see.
it happens again,
you and i curse and scream,
i cant ever wake up,
from this, my bad dream.
four years pass,
since we first met.
back at class.
i will never forget.
things are different now, though.
mistakes were made,
you're sorry and i know,
you should've stayed.
and i just want to say,
baby, im sorry, too.
i pushed you away,
i didnt know what to do.

Is waking up,
no longer wanting to hide
In the depths
Trying to free it's self
From the cage which is myself
In which it hid.
It so desperately wants to be free.
It's killing me from inside.
Until Finally Free.
The wolf replaces my human self.
And the woods become my only friend.

to see him one last time,
smell his scent in my hair.
to feel his heart beat next to mine.
to remember his smile,
hear his voice in my mind,
to keep our memories safe awhile.
to keep his hand in mine,
feel his lips at my neck,
to reconnect him and I, to realign.
to forget his touch,
watch him walk away,
to lose everything, to risk too much.
Shallow SmilesA boy sits beside a hospital bed. Tears stream down his face, but he isn't making a sound. He's just silently weeping to himself he knows he should look up, he knows he should look at her and her endless perfect beauty but he can't, he can't bring himself to do it, so he just sits there staring at the floor.Shallow Smiles4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Hey Lilly" I said casually as I strolled into the school yard. Lilly was always at school early, she only lived down the street from school, you could see her road from basically any classroom.
"Hey Paul, how are you this beautiful morn?" she said cheerily, throwing me one of her heart stopping smiles. These were the kind of smiles that I lived for, they were my heroin and I could never get enough of my fix.
"I'm pretty good thanks, how about yourself?" I love the way she spoke, it was seamless there was never a pause, never a stutter nothing ever seemed to break her stride while she was speaking.
"Not bad, not b
