trapped between her fingers, buzzing in her ears.
A heartbeat lost in the echoes of her rib cage.
And yes, of course: the intermittent pounding, the thundering, the rush of blood through her veins.
Was that fear?
She'd once been foolish enough to believe that no one could lure her in to this. A ribbon of smokescreen smiles, flashes of deceptive lies, and she was sold for the price of forever. As the cold air smacks into her face and turns her hair to tangled strands, she struggles to maintain her hold on the tattered calendar. It's ripped from the wall, December 2011 in bold Serif typeface filling the upper left corner. Eight dates circled in red. Eight trials, none of them easy, and her mouth runs dry at the thought. She folds the calendar and slips it into the right pocket of her jeans.

Jesus in IslamMuslims greatly respect Jesus and await his second coming. They consider him as one of the most important messengers of God. A Muslim never denounces the name "Jesus" without adding "peace be with him." The Qur'an confirms his miraculous birth (in the chapter called "Mary"), and considers Mary Immaculate Virgin.

"And behold, the angels said: 'O Mary, surely Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of worlds. O Mary, God gives you a happy news of a word from Him, whose name is Messiah, Jesus son of Mary. He will be honored in this world and the Hereafter, and will be one of the rough. He will speak to the people in the cradle, and as a mature man, and will be among the righteous. ' She said: 'O my Lord, How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?' He said: 'Even so! God creates what He pleases When He decrees a thing, He only says:' Be! ' - And it's becoming. "

Diana sighed in relief as the Javelin came in for a smooth landing at the Watchtower satellite. Flash was piloting the ship back with Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, in the copilot seat. She, Hal, Wally and Superman were on a deep space mission that took them away from Earth for two weeks.
Upon return to Earth, they were caught in an asteroid storm. Flash was piloting and even though the Javalin shook violently under his control, he didn't want to put full control of the ship in Hal's hands. He argued he had enough skill to pilot the ship during the storm. Hal argued with him, citing his piloting expertise. They bickered like a couple on a long trip.
Diana couldn't help feeling a little unnerve at the constant shakes of the ship. She wasn't scared but she didn't want the ship to split apart in space either. Sitting next to her was Clark who briefly squeezed her hand and assured her it would be all right.
Diana also knew if something were to ha
Money Makes Us Go InsaneWhat is money?Money Makes Us Go Insane6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Money to me is the means to acquiring our basic necessities we need in life in order to survive and it is rather unfortunate that we have to PAY just to survive. Many of us splurge on useless pieces of material that sit on our vanities collecting dust while a greater proportion of us struggle to keep a roof over our heads, heat in the house, food and water on the table. Why indulge in unnecessary items while people are dying of starvation? Why not help a stranger out? Challenge your assumptions and lend a hand and before you know it youll begin to learn that those who struggle are not the typical assumptions we have learned to believe.
Its minimum wage or nothing at all. Its the scrounging, scrambling and the scuffing for change but in the end its never enough regardless of what we make. Once its gone it hits you hard and never leaves your mind. You constantly wonder, constantly worry and constantly wish you would have just learned to
I AMI AM3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am extraordinary
My mother would describe me as her beautiful girl
My friends call me "Smiley face"
I keep dreaming
I remember the bullying
I've learned that not everyone going to understand me
I hide my tears
I read my stories
I shout "you don't understand!"
I see the world around me
I hear people whispering behind my back
I taste rain
I feel emotions
I think a different way
I whisper secrets
I am flawed
I want friends
I will go home
I won't ever judge for what I can see
I can inspire people
I pretend to be famous
I sing songs that I can related to
I am a teenager
I dream that i'm in six feet under the stars
I fear death
I reach for the sky
I say sorry when I'm wrong
I love art
I declare for the world to see people are different
I am an original

Becoming The Darkness
Hope is slowly falling away
The shadows are consuming me
Please, relieve me of my guilty conscience
Because these memories haunt me to no end
Please, make me another one of the departed
Allow me to ascend from this lament
My sorrowful heart has been forever weighing me down
But I still tried my very best to carry on
My lonesome soul kept corrupting me even more
So I was never really brave or strong
The birth to a new side of me has risen
One that harnessed the tragedies
The gift of a curse is what I have been given
I'm in control of my own insanity
A tranquil calmness on the outside
A black storm rages on the inside
My eyes attempt to remain closed
While this inner chaos tries to take over
And these twisted thoughts grab hold
I am no longer my own oppressor
I've transformed into my best nightmare
And also my very own worst enemy
Because the light
