Dont Judge MeYou people always judge by what you seeDont Judge Me4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
You call us names and cause a lot of pain
Although it does nothing at all to me
You fail to realize there's nothing to gain
All the things you say are not at all true
All the things you say are nothing but lies
Then one day it will come back down on you
That one day is when we together rise
You say you do not believe me at all
But your non believing is you weakness
On that day we will rise and you will fall
And we will leave you silent and speechless
So you should stop and think before you lie
Or you will not gain wings to soar and fly

I walked into the restaurant with butterflies in my stomach.
"Calm yourself Korra, its not a real date "
I put a hand on my forehead,
"I can't do this."
I was about to walk out when a familiar voice caught my attention,
"Hey Kor whoa,"
Bolin had walked up behind me, when I turned around his jaw dropped.
I waved, kind of,
he put his hand on the back of his neck,
"I didn't know it was a real date."
After he said that I wanted to light something on fire, I was so angry it was almost uncontrollable, how could I be so stupid as to being so obvious that I liked Mako, that Bolin caught on!
He can even catch a bolder when we spar each other, I just hung my head.
"Am I really that obvious?"
I couldn't even look at him, just the fact that he knew, and I didn't tell him, made me even sicker.
"Korra, you're not obvious in any way, I just catch onto these things quickly,"
he smiled so innocent that I couldn't help but get over my rage at t

I returned to our room wiping sweat from my neck,
"Hey Bo, you awake yet?"
I was getting my training suit from the closet when I heard hard footsteps coming from Bolins room.
"Mako Mako! This came for you while you were gone, I think it's from Asami."
Bolin was holding a package and letter, that were open.
I looked up at him,
he said with a shrug,
"Your girlfriend always sends me a present too."
He folded his arms and put on a kidish look,
"But this time it's just another invite to a big dinner."
I grabbed the package and letter,
"Thanks Bolin, you better get changed, Korra is going to be here soon."
With that, Bolin ran back to his room, and I just plopped onto the sectional sofa and sighed,
"Another fancy dinner huh?"
I held up the letter and started reading it, but stragely I couldn't focus on it, so I just shook my head, trying to jostle my thoughts around, and laid it next to me.
I stood up and walked over to my gear, but again a thought came back into my

My FearsMy Fears3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
There is a fear
That I will not live up to your expectations
That I will sabotage myself
That I will find a way to hurt you more than I can imagine
There is a fear
That this is a fad I'm going thru
That I'll wake up one day
And my feelings will have changed
There is a fear
That it won't work
Whether it be space and time
Or time and space
Impatience and frustrations will overcome
There is a fear
That I'm jumping way beyond what I can see
That I have expectations
That aren't realistic
There is a fear
I'll look for the easy way out
I repeat, sabotage myself
There are many fears
And I am very scared
But I'm fueled by your faith
And I know that when
The clouds are gone from a rainy day
The sun will shine again
Beauty In Negative SpacesBeauty In Negative Spaces3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The entire world is dark
Or at least life may seem that way
Until you find a spark
The spark then lights a fire
Which then creates a space
One the darkness can not touch
You can now find refuge in this place
Once you make your way to the light
It's easy to see past things that gave you fright
For in this oh-so negative space
There lies beauty and wonder
But in order to see it you must chase.
Chase your dreams, your wonders, your fantasies
Get out of the darkness and into the light
For dark is the way and light is a place
You must push and persevere and fight
The darkness will consume you in this negative space
So you must hurry
You must RUN!
Before everything you know is lost, forgotten, gone!
The darkness will consume you,
And ultimately, delude you
It tricks you
It teases you
And scares you so bad it freezes you
The darkness is a monster
So don't give up on the light
You must keep heading toward it
You must keep it in your sight
The light will save you
And praise you
The One with the EyesThe One with the Eyes2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Just a few months and it was already so hard. Mako sat next to his 6 year old brother. They had been on the streets for 4 short months, and they were broke and winter was slowly approaching. They needed as many yuans as they could get for anything that could keep them warm during the harsh winter nights.
Bolin taught his new found friend, Pabu, as he called him, some tricks and left a jar beside him. Most people walked by and ignored them, some nicer ones dropped a few yuans. Everytime one of these people came by, Bolin yelled "Thank you, kind sir!" in his high, squeaky voice. Mako sat there staring at the jar and folded his arms across his chest.
"Bolin, we need money for the winter. I'm sorry, bro, this isn't going to be enough."
Bolin pouted out his lip.
"Maybe I can run more numbers for the Triple Threats "
"No, Mako, I don't like when you leave for there. Those Triple Threats are some nasty dudes."
"Bolin, how else are we supposed to get money? I can't work at Narook's anymor
The Furnish Is EverythingIt was 183 days ago when Minerva Kisling the Yiddish Mentalist first came to my train station. She toured the Neptune-Aries circuit in vaudeville. I had seen her glossy photographs a few times outside of the Easton theater and The Springhouse when she played there, but I never saw her in person. At least, I never saw her until the locomotive that was supposed to be bringing her husband failed to arrive with said husband.The Furnish Is Everything4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As a redcap for the Southwest Lake Station with a half-dozen sisters, I scarcely could afford the ten cents or the time to see a vaudeville show on a regular basis, but the children working near the tracks would put on cheap imitations of the more popular acts in hopes of getting pennies rained on them. They would dab burnt cork on their cheeks, bug out their eyes, and sing or tell jokes. Often they received the most money when they stopped singing and went back to carrying bags. What the children failed to re-enact, they retold to me on slower days. I was more than pr

relief, calm, focus, release, yes-
but pain? hardly.
a doctor might tell you that the two wounds are the same. but any cutter will tell you that no other scrape or cut will run as read, as true- with as much force as that which is self-inflicted.
a cut, you see, is perfect. it's kind. it's understanding. it washes away all chaos and emotional turmoil with beads of red (and if you're deep enough, mahogany) that quickly join and run down the length of your arm.
a cut is simple. predictable. the slice, the bite. the blood. the scab. the itching the next day. the eventual scarring. the fading. and when you can no longer see the angry marks, the inexplicable and undeniable urge to make them appear again.

Chapter Two: Fun in the Sun?
It was a beautiful day in Karakura Town, the sun was beaming down and birds were singing as they darted through the thin wisps of clouds. Ichigo Kurosaki was enjoying a rare lie-in as the sun rose higher in the sky, that was until something loud and slightly worrying snapped him out of his slumber. Someone downstairs was shouting at the top of their lungs; it sounded as though they were fighting off a mob of megaphone-wielding elephants and, knowing his father, Ichigo thought that probably wasn't far from the truth. He slid out of bed and quickly threw on some shorts and a red shirt before stumbling sleepily down the stairs.
In the kitchen Karin and Yuzu were sitting at the table eating breakfast. They seemed almost bored with whatever their father was doing and so Ichigo guessed it mustn't be very important, he was probably just yelling at another unsatisfied patient. The orange-haired teenager sat down and grabbed a slice of toast from the rack before smo

And he's not even looking for a relationship now?...is he?

I laughed at the last part, but even thinking of my overly romantic friend didn't cheer me up.

From the very start I had trusted you
It had not even been a day and yet still
I had told you secrets no one else yet knew
Your kind heart listened with such skill
You have done so many deeds for all of us
Managing to bring a smile to our faces
The kindness you show makes me feel gracious
I carry this happiness to all places
You helped me speak another language
At the time I had a wound on my heart
You were there for me holding a bandage
I loved you like a sister from the start
You my friends all affected me so
Any time we speak I feel my spirit glow

The little redhead sat on a stool in her mother's kitchen. Looking to be about 5 or 6, she watched as her mother began her own little ritual between them.

Half scoop of Skullcap to ease thy stress and calm mine nerves.
Two scoops of Valerian. May the smelly socks defeat our enemies.
One heaping scoop of St. Johns Wort, help in easing thine mind.
Add five cups of water and let steep for 90 minutes in the sun," her mother quietly said, reciting the recipe by heart.
"Mama, when did you learn to make the sleepy tea?" the little girl asked, kicking her legs as she watched her mother move around quickly.
Looking up and putting a finger to her chin as she thought, her mother replied "I believe I was about your age. I learned it from my mother who learned it from hers."
