The deeping twilight silence heard
In the whispers of a half dreamed word,
With new moon in a dreamless sleep
And sun, nostalgic vigil keeps.
The black-red light, a pulsing flood.
The ocean sky, from her virgin blood
That drains a living death, is born-
From the edge of time are softly called,
Two women walking, their sacred feet
On either side of the horizon meet.
One stares with eyes of burnished gold
And round her shapely figure holds
A robe of molten, blinding light,
Her face, in which, is hid from sight.
Each footstep burns an eternal road,
A tuneless song around her flows.
The growing things she once did mind
Have quickly withered, slowly died.
The other weeps from cloudy eyes,
A world of pain in each tear she cries.
Buried in a grey-mist gown,
Her face of steel, once more cast down.
Each footstep is a sodden march,
Her moaning wind is drifting past.
She regards her charges with a shifting frown,
All living things, she slowly drowns.
In the world upon the line,
We, between the tw

"Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry you guys. I didn't mean to, er, interrupt " Bianca sputtered awkwardly, blush rising in her cheeks.
Touko, still slightly disheveled and flushed from her embrace with N, felt thoroughly humiliated. "You didn't interrupt anything," she mumbled feebly as she glared at the floor. Her denial felt flimsy even to her ears, especially considering that there was a man in her bed. Bianca looked at her skeptically, glancing at N, who was still unkempt from their embrace. She smiled at Touko knowingly and playfully bounced her eyebrows at her.
"Sure," she said devilishly. "So, were you kids playing Wii then?"
"Shut up, Bianca," Touko whined miserably. She hated feeling foolish.
"Oh, Touko, you're blushing!"
Touko groaned and let her face fall into her palms. "Sometimes, Bianca, I want to punch you," she grumbled. Bianca giggled and swatted her lightly with the large bag of clothes she had in her hands.

just for a taste o' bitter drenched ruth.
Thou coated that harsh surfaced wedding cake
with gleaming White chocolate Lies a little too fake.
Thou muted these blood curdling screams
lulled away with thy violin's Symphony o' sweet dreams
Thou placed a fancy mirror in front of reality
just to pretend it's a gateway to thy Sanctuary
Thou brush off Monochrome Land's bitter cry
an attempt to paint a rainbow on a stormy sky.
Thou put ancient Memories to sleep
then broke into a run, into a forest too deep.
Thou dropped suitcases along thy journey
rid off the past like it's some plain ol' history.
Thou put an end to this tale
slammed this book with a hand so frail.

"My dear let me tell you a story about the past, about a feeling that never goes away no matter how hard you try. And that when we believe in the theory of reincarnation."
July 4, 2000, was the moment I first saw you and noticed you. A memory that far away of course it would be vague but what I could remember was the year after that was when we became classmates. It got me curious on how could you skip one level was when I first saw you, you were only in nursery.
June 13, 2001 was when we became classmates; it was when I hated you and at the same time fell in love with you. At first our relationship was just similar to a cat and dog; I was the dog and you were the cat, back then you were always trying to start a fight with me, trying to provoke me that would lead me to chasing you around our little campus, at first I felt annoyance when I was determined to catch you and beat you up afterwards, but then that feeling slowly dissipated and transformed into fun and enjoyment, I knew you we

for us to lose our minds in,
for hopes to become the cloudscape
and for dancing to become the norm.
Tonight's moon is a promise made
to us to keep our dreams within,
for us to build a starlit staircase
and unlock that gilded cage.
Tonight's dusk is a champagne toast
for us to drown our sorrows in
and the reminder that tomorrow
our lives go supernovicly astray.
Luciferian NightmareAs with thine name, thine essence breathesLuciferian Nightmare5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The light; Of truth mine hands hold so tight;
Oh Lord, Oh Lucifer, in you I believe;
But mine eyes are shadowed, void of fright.
The darkness of thine walls surround; Abound
And around from ash drawn from thy words;
Shifted about by hands that are silken gowned;
They shepherd thine herds, en masse, not thirds.
Though broken, thine eyes hath been opened again;
And lead in pain, through redemption, disdain; One
Herd hath remained; To lead, to gain,
Thine loyal men and beasts a liken the sun.
And though shadows exist, my Lord, I see;
Thine light is divine and all that remains is me.

The idea that there is beauty in the world, I doubt is true
I'm tired of being on my own, lonely as a sparrow in the rain
Walking alone, never someone with whom I can share my pain
Not knowing where I am going to, coming from or why
This happens to me so much because everyone says goodbye
I know that, for you, this is not going to be the hardest part
Because I know you will be there, to see the end of my beating heart
I cannot help but think depression will drive me to a last resort
But when my time has come, please don't leave me on life support
I know it's too much to ask, but when you can, turn off the power
I don't want to be kept alive beyond the point of my destined hour
When your time comes and you stand before god, the father, the saviour
He will look upon you and ask you to please explain your behaviour
All you will have to do is explain it's a kindness that you have done me
Being the creator, the honesty in your hear
The Convenience of EqualityThe Convenience of Equality2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The topic of marriage is no stranger to Americans in recent weeks. The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 split decision, ruled that DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) was unconstitutional because it failed to offer homosexuals “equal protection under the law” and that the purpose of DOMA is to “humiliate” and “injure” homosexuals who seek marriage.
No doubt a number of individuals celebrated the ruling, happy, perhaps, to see the archaic edifice of ‘traditional’ marriage burn and establish a sleek and modern “marriage” in its place. Many rejoiced at the new building, but many of us looked on and asked to see the building plans.
Arguments for “marriage equality” are many times the product of convenient reasoning. The typical strain of equality reasoning usually goes along the lines of this: We can’t expect everyone to go by one definition of marriage, nor should the government force one view over the other. Moreover, th

MeditationI couldnt stand it anymoreMeditation6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
you were being difficult,
and you just stared at me
with those baleful eyes.
It wasnt helping at all--
that silent treatment
not telling me the problem
so I could do something;
to fix it.
You knew I would do
whatever it took
to make it right
I left the garage
(where you were)
and went into the house
(where you werent)
and gathered my things
A comfy collapsible chair
my cooler (with a six-pack and a sandwich inside)
fishing rod and tackle box
and-- I went fishing that day
I walked to the pond down the road
the one surrounded by huge cottonwoods
and left you alone in your stubborn silence.
I un-collapsed my collapsible chair
tied on a black doll fly to my line
and drank a beer without feeling guilty
because I had to drive you home.
The rhythmic cast and retrieve--
cast and retrieve
calmed me down and I could think
about the problems between us.
After lunch, I walked back home
to find you still in the garage

Told in Josh's POV:
"Tim, why the heck are you in Johto while you were in Unova, training that Lucario of yours?" I said.
"You're that kid who punched me in the face while I tried to capture my own Pokemon back!" He held his nose. Tim didn't look anything like the Tim I saw. He now wore some black cape, hat and jeans, similar to Blaine's...
Similar to Blaine's...?
"Luno's mine now." I said, shaking off the thought. "He is my Pokemon." Tim's eyes were still wide open.
"What do you mean, 'He's mine'?! I'm Luno's Original Trainer!!"
"You shouldn't have released him!" Alice said angrily. "Josh captured him now!"
"After he punched me in the face while I tried to capture him!"
"You knew he didn't want to return to you!!" I yelled. "You released him, and you don't know it, but he only evolved into an Umbreon so he could battle you to prove he isn't weak!!" Tim fell silent.

Snowflakes fall out side the frost window.
Trees covered in white grace and beauty.
Cracking of wood echoes across the frozen land!
A peaceful night in the forest!
Inside the cabin the soft fire burns in the chimney.
A dog is sleeping peacefully on the couch!
The Christmas tree is covered in all sorts of decorations.
Lights flash on it in all sorts of colorful softness.
Milk and cookies are left on a table next to the Christmas tree.
They will act as a gift to a very special guest.
Guest who is dressed in red clothes and has a long white beard!
Who gives gifts to all the boys and girls of the world.
In a room, peacefully a small girl is sleeping.
And she is dreaming.
A dream full of colors and magic!
A dream in which she is with Santa and they ride magic sleigh!
All the deer's along Rudolf are in front of them.
Dashing through the snow the red nose of Rudolf shines the way.
A way of joy, magic and love!
But that dream is disrupted by the noises coming form downstairs.

I've tried and I've tried
And I can't tell a lie
These thoughts that pass by
Can bring tears to my eyes
And sometimes I feel like I've died deep inside
I keep trying and trying
To move on with life
But I can't seem to help myself at night
You're buried inside
Killing my feelings
I no longer feel so deeply
For any man
I've tried to be released from your hand
But you don't give a damn
All you want is her hand
All you want is to hold her
All you want is to lover her
Saying you'd never hurt her
But I know your past- you're a cheater
You're also a player
I wait for the day to come
"I've changed!" you'll swear
As her heart begins to tear
She'll realize what she's getting isn't fair
She'll end up like me- calling for repair
I don't know, maybe it's all just in my mind
I feel like I'm overdosed on time
Am I going to suffer for the rest of my life?
Is this just being dramatized?
Ugh, what else can I say?
When's the ending date?
When I run out of pain?
I'm lost and confused

Let their lies consume you.
Don't be afraid.
Let me take you away from truth.
Don't worry all that ugliness will go away.

It will all disappear .
Cant we all just play innocent?
The bitter world will fade away into a endless abyss.

Not all evil resides in the dark.
Be distrustful to the light.
Don't listen to their lies.
All is well here .

What seems to be good is really bad.

şi nu ştiai că prea multă te orbeşte
cu ochii-mpăienjeniţi, te-ai împiedicat

acuzator la mine?
nu e vina mea, nici a lor
că nu mai ai măcar un vis în tine
şi că nimeni nu vrea să-ţi dea unul.
te-ntrebi amăgitor, oare-ai fost
un simplu rău trecător?
te-ai pierdut aşa uşor?
nu-ţi căuta viaţa aici, nu o vei găsi
caută între cadavre de eroi
poate o găseşti undeva sub noroi,
din vremea când erai mai bun.
caută lumina pierdută altundeva
poate într-o noapte prea lungă şi grea
şi fii sigur că eu nu pot
nu vreau să ţi-o mai dau
aştept să greşeşti, să te răneşti
şi poate să simţi iar.
undeva, cândva, altundeva
ai să-ţi găseşti alt drum

It was a clear dark night, the moon shone brightly through the cloudless sky. Ellen, Trisha, Joan, and Lauren were gathered in a small ring on the floor of Lauren's room. Her parents were out for the night, not expected to be back until, at the earliest, one. Now it was what one would call 'scary story time,' and at the moment Trisha was telling the story of the hook.
"They drove away from the hill," she was muttering in a barely audible, but still heard voice. "She momentarily forgot the eerie scratching sound that she had heard mere minutes before. And then they got to her house. Her boyfriend, the gentleman that he was, got out to open her door, and when he got to her side he gasped. 'What?' she asked, 'What's wrong?' Then he opened the door wordlessly, and hanging from the handle was a silver hook."
There was silence for a second or two, until Joan laughed and said, "That was a good one! I'll remember that!" She smacked her knee once, riddi
