Unpolished and torn
What a beautiful time
To feel so forlorn
Apollo above us
A quite blinding smile
Giving up on the Lord
It seems so futile
The heavens above us
Dotted up in the sky
I lie on the grass
An emerald glade
All the numbness I feel
Yet I sense every blade
A jab on the finger
My arm, slashed and skinned
A battalion of swords
On the sound of the wind
What a wonderful day
Just a bright atmosphere
But I feel so depressed
I lie on the earth
All the clovers I see
Are of four-leaf descent
But all bad luck to me
The dandelions dance
In summer wear dress
And the daisies just sweet
It's my cheeks they caress

The City of the FacelessI walked through a desert, sand on all sides,The City of the Faceless4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No water, stricken, barren, destroyed.
But as I stumbled, choking on dust,
I saw two large doors.
They protruded from the sand, fifty feet tall,
With a lock and inscription, calling to all:
ERIS QUOD SUM, ERAM QUOD ES:
I was what you are; you will be what I am.
Slowly, they opened.
The world shook, the monsters let out a roar.
Behind them lay nothingness, yet fulfillment.
I strode through, and awoke in a different place.
There were people all around, just like me,
But they were Faceless.
The Faceless let loose a sad, mournful wail,
The eyes are the windows into the soul,
Their windows were boarded, shuttered, closed.
The Faceless let loose a sad, mournful wail,
Lips form strings of syllables, creating sensory delight.
Their strings were cut to shreds.
The Faceless let loose a sad, mournful wail.
Hair, as individual as every man's own personality,
Their personalities were identical.
The Faceless let loose a sad, mournful wail.

If this is how it ends, I'd have no regrets...so I said.
I'll remember all the memories we had, you and I...be it sad or happy, I don't want to forget.
In our little spot, with a bench and a swing...we'd always be there, under the Sun smiling.
Hey, do you remember all this? Why are you saying it's raining? It's a bright sunny day!
I understand how you feel.. through that look on your face, and I know you understand mine.
Is it raining? I'm starting to feel it too, under this grand tree we take shelter under.
I wonder if we'll stay like this, or will we lose each other? Why do I think of things like this?
But for now, it doesn't matter...for all I can think of is being with you.
If we were to seperate, we'd definately still be here...waiting for one another.(Am I right..?)
Hey, why are you so quiet?! Aren't you the one that usually talks alot?
Are you troubled..? Don't worry, I'll be there for you, don't tilt you

Rainforest FinalOnce there was an old woman who lived in a rainforest.Rainforest Final5 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
She needed a walking stick.
And so she made one.
The walking stick was strong, and it gave the woman new strength and she found it easier to walk around the leafy, cluttered forest floor.
The old woman and her tribe were called the Penan people. They lived in the rainforest on the island of Borneo.
Living with these people, the walking stick learned about them and the way they lived in the forest. He listened to the old woman tell stories to the children:
The forest is our home, but it does not belong to us. The land belongs to everyone, and so we take what we need and move on
The walking stick loved his home with the Penan people, he loved the hot, steamy, wet rainforest and he loved the old woman.
But soon the old woman grew sick. Walking grew harder and harder. It was hard for her to get up in the mornings. And then one day, she didnt get up at all.
She was buried, and the Penan people moved on.
They left her w

Milky-blue eyes reflecting the dying sun.
Plastered fingers curl a lock of copper hair
Behind an ever-listening earlobe.
Worn coats, scarves, woolen gloves,
Strewn carelessly across a firelit rug.
She buries her ivory face in my shivering arm,
Pressing a smile to my goose-pimpled skin.
We huddle together in a cold-haunted mess,
Watching the light slither carelessly
Into a canopy of curly, breathless smoke.
Across the whitened tarmac,
I catch sight of wind-whipped auburn,
As she waves between the passing cars.
A warming smile tugs at my lips,
As I take a baby step forward,
Into a suffocating oblivion.
In the space of a winter's breath,
A lover's heartbeat,
She steps into the frostbitten air,
Before soaring on snowy wings,
With the aid of a moving metal shell.
Her tears, replaced with a gush of thick red,
Pouring from her open mouth,
Gaping in a silent scream.
Her godly halo disappears,
And she comes a-crashing,
Head first on the ice-glazed conc

A label read wrongly.
The scream of thought,
I provoke my inner mind.
Drowning in the pleasure
Of reading out the future
And creating my own view
On the events around me.
Though this song is so alone,
So very deep in solitude.
But I'll hum it while I
Drink my tiny imagination
and the beautiful arrangements
Of my crystalline ideals.

Saw me once before
Waved me into the seat beside you
That first day of school
A year it would be, me being so clueless
Not noticing you right there
Oh you tried
You tried so hard to get me to notice
Smiles on my papers
Volunteering the same place as me
Taking an interest in my hobbies
Always greeting me with that bright smile
But I caught on
And I realized how long you'd been waiting
I didn't wait long to tell you how I felt
I still regret not doing it in person
Though I doubt I would have had the courage
My first confession
My first girlfriend
It's good that you were so patient
You'd have more waiting to do yet
For that first kiss
My first first kiss, as it would happen
I was so new at this, you know
My first time buying jewelry for a girl
Anything for a girl, really
My first time going on a date
I was so, so new
I made mistakes
Made a fool of myself
But you stayed with me
Heaven knows why
It wasn't long before you were
My first love
Those early days were like a drea

Smiling at you
Trying to get close to you.
Look at them in their shorts
With their cleavage
And remember me
Waiting for you
Thinking about you
Replaying that day
Imagining your arms
Look at those girls
And tell me if you see
A person willing to take a bullet
As willing as me...
Look at me now
And ignore all the fights
Because between the words
I've thrown around
"I love you" are the only three
I've ever meant...

With red blood that runs
Through vein and vein
With lesser thought in mind
Slow throbbing of the body
And closeness in touch
The brain is out of proportion
To see the stars and planets collide
Touching the dark velvet of the sky
Bring back to me
Inside this heart
Of red blood and aching.
Your storm am I.

Stuck within consuming bind,
in such a web you'll flay.
Piece by piece I steal away;

Soon the sun that starts your day
will be a memory.
So do not ask what I think,
lest you taste the truth.
When you toy with such a link,
my feelings are uncouth.

Why the Wind WailsWhy the Wind WailsWhy the Wind Wails4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Long ago, when gods and demons were more numerous and powerful than today, there lived in one corner of the world a Jaguar.
Now this Jaguar was no ordinary beast, for he grew far larger than others of his kind, until he towered over the greatest trees and began to rival even the smaller mountains. He knew hunger then, for being so large there was no game that could sustain him for long. Ravenous, he left the jungle and trekked north in search of better hunting.
He entered a desert, where at first he found only jackrabbits and the occasional coyote, neither of which was more than a tiny mouthful at a time. Besides which, the thunder of his belly rumbling sent most of them scurrying for their burrows before he ever got near.
The Jaguar was nearing the point of despair, about to lie down in the dust and wait to breathe his last when a musky scent wafted teasingly across his nose. Cresting a mountain, he sighted in the valley below a herd of gigantic pronghorned antelope

To give all glory to God above
To know who I am

To know where to go

To understand you're here for me
To look in the mirror and love what I see
To play to laugh to dance and sing
Music taught me everything.

where I sometimes curl up beside you,
the poetry books,
books on everything, anything,
the bed and the soft smell of your skin.
I need home.
