from our throats to pour into squares of newly open sky
where the stars grew aches and darkened lakewater
once bloomed into bruised winters. Somewhere
beyond the thick of snow, prayers are strung
on moon-rattled winds
and birds' teeth tear apart the poetry
of our hands. They will raise something beautiful
from these ruined words.
Continents shift slowly. They are
dirt-bound titans, these beasts;
rootless giants that mold themselves
to fit the vision we hold inside our heads. Oceans sigh
and their tides crawl ever upward.
II. Our shadows become umbilical
in certain light. Unknown children cast
dark shapes of water
to nourish the gardens springing forth
from the dirt's wrist like a eulogy for lost sky.
Morning doves sing because they see what we cannot:
the years between us laid out like miles and our feet
that never mark the reddened earth and
the passion-trees birthing flowers of such cold, untamed souls.
We are walking in the wombs of

Sometimes people remind
me of machines.
They go about calling
facts of the task at hand
to mind in bleak
We condone convention
to panegyric oaths
mouthed in boredom
by shameless shamans.
"Thanks for a job jolly
well done," becomes our epitaph,
and the joke of history
is, "I think
I . . . huh?"

THE PRISON WITHIN
Child too old, why do we build the prisons within.
Pain and fear, alone we are cast, sanctuary we seek, a prison we find.
A freedom most difficult to find.
Better safe in our prison, than lost outside?
Some prisons seem nice and cozy, while others are filled with horrors.
Chains bind tight, it is impossible to grow, is this what life is all about?
Know your prison first, seek the cracks of light, a glimpse of what freedom could be.
Courage is what you need, change is your key.
What is inside, behind the door
that is not outside, on the other side of the door?
We are choice, so choose, unlock the door?
Imagination, beauty and love, all contained behind tall walls.
Outside, these things know no bounds.
Imagination's only limit is within yourself.
Freedom once found, how sweet it is...

I can only imagine some of the things you would be thinking, but they would all stem from one rationalization: that what was happening defied logic.
To make sure we are on the same page, let me give you some quick facts about the Bible: The Bible was written over a span of about 1500 years (from 1445 BC to 95 AD) in 3 continents, in 3 languages, by 40 authors, and has 66 books. It's mostly a collection of letters written to churches. We can verify the dates of the books of the Bible through the efforts of historians, linguists, and archeologists.

Can I accept this person as he is now, without trying to change him or expecting him to change himself?
Am I willing to tolerate his imperfections and respect his thoughts and feelings even when they are different from my own?

Do I trust him?Do I enjoy his company?
Gorillaz - Emotions ch 2Cyborg Noodle looked at 2D for a while. It felt like hours for 2D. He wasn't used to Cyborg Noodle in anyway. She never did anything else then only keep an eye on him. He always thought that she would hit him or anything like that if he went near her and that's why he always tried to stay out of her way. Murdoc only laughed when 2D backed away from the Cyborg in fear. But that was because he was scared of her. Even if she looked like Noodle she was still a killer machine. But right now when 2D saw the Cyborg acted this gentle to him he felt like he could relax. Maybe she wasn't going to hurt him at all. But he didn't want to thrust her to 100 percent. She maybe acted like this for a strange reason. Maybe Murdoc had told her to do it and then she would hurt him. 2D shook his head and tried to get rid of all those thoughts in his head. It gave him headache. He noticed that Cyborg Noodles hand were still on his knee. She didn't remove it.Gorillaz - Emotions ch 24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"But Muds, I only meant to-"
"I said no."
"Pwease, Muds, I-"
"I SAID FUCKIN' NO!" Murdoc roared, glaring deeply into the trembling singer's eyes. Tears ran down his pale cheeks, glimmering slightly in the dim light of the Winnie.
"B-" He was cut off by a sharp punch across the face. His trembling hands flew up to his cheek, fractured dents stretched wide as he stared up at Murdoc in fear.
"GIT OUT, TUSSPOT!"
The lanky man shrank back, stumbling towards the door as the tears began to fall faster. He just couldn't believe.. he'd really thought.. all those times they'd..
The door slammed shut behind him, knocking 2D off of the steps and chin first onto the cold carpark cement. He groaned, rubbing his skinned and bleeding jaw. He didn't feel it, however; he was far too numb by the already gaping wound in his heart.
Sobs racked his thin body as he forced himself to sit up, glaring regretfully at t

2D gave him an odd look, as though not understanding his reaction. "Jus' 'at I love yew, Muds." A smile crossed the younger's face as he leaned in for a kiss, confused further when Murdoc released his warm grip on the singer and stepped back.
The bassist glared at him, baring his fangs slightly. "Yew wot?" He growled.
"Ah.. love yew?" Stu's smile faded to a nervous frown as he searched Murdoc's eyes.
Murdoc's glare only harshened. "No." He replied in a low, flat growl, not lessening his intense glare as tears started forming in 2D's large, black holes. A sickening feeling came over Murdoc as he stared into those dark eyes. Eye's he'd fractured. Eyes that'd caused the younger unbareable pain because of him.
"Mu'doc, I-" He began, tears of frustration and rejection welling up in his eyes.
"No." The tears only served to remind him of all the times he'd beaten the man until he

I can see that, he said, a faint touch of amusement in his voice. Come on, have some coffee before you go see Wentz.
Before I could protest, he led me off to a sort of faculty lounge, complete with coffee pot. I poured myself a Styrofoam cup of the steaming coffee, dumped in a packet of sugar, and started taking big, scalding gulps.
Looks like you needed that, Joe laughed as I downed the last of the coffee.

Bothering to Reply"Yew guys 'ave fun!" 2D chimed, sniffling and dabbing at his nose with the sleeve of his over-sized jacket. He was standing next to the Geep as the other Gorillaz all piled in for a quick trip down to Essex. The singer had contracted a cold and would have to stay home; which he didn't mind as the others had promised to pick him up some medicine and some soup.Bothering to Reply4 years ago in Sketches More Like This
"Course we will, 'D." Russel nodded from the back seat, buckling himself up and glancing over at Noodle as she spoke.
"Yoo go get some rest, 2D-kun! We will bring yoo back some soop to help!" She gave him a light hug, tugging his jacket a bit tighter around his thin frame and zipping it up. He thanked her quietly, then backed up a bit.
"Bye guys!" His voice easily gave away his stuffy nose, making himself and Noodle laugh a bit at how funny his high-pitched cockney accent sounded when paired with a cold. Stu turned happily to Murdoc, a grin still bright on his sickly pale face.
He gazed up at the singer with an unamused look as he
Love You Hate YouHis body was trembling numbly as he forced himself not to look out his window. He knew he couldn't rest until he was sure there wasn't a whale watching him, but there was also a chance it'd be there and he'd end up scaring himself even worse. Hugging his knees to his chest and lowering his head so his hat blocked his veiw of the room, the frightened singer squeezed his eyes shut and hoped it would be over soon.Love You Hate You4 years ago in Sketches More Like This
Of course it wouldn't and he knew that full well, but the sounds of the lift told him that he'd at least have a bit of a break from his constant fear. A moment later his door swung open loudly, bouncing off the wall with a slight crack. A bit of the moldy garbage fell to the floor. Sooner or later that little section was going to fall apart completely.
There were footsteps coming towards the bed but he didn't bother to raise his hat. He already knew who it was. A pressure beside him on the bed told him that the other was beside him and, as expected, he heard the curtains pulled
