The shredder at my work. Some days it likes you, other days you put one damn piece of paper in the thing and it goes "OHMAIGOD TOO MUCH! D:", says that it's jammed and I feel the urge to throw it out the large window behind me. (Hopefully it will have enough momentum to roll down the hill, bounce across the street and then tumbled down another hill onto the freeway.)
Waiting for video games to come out. Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Halo 4 are killing me right now. So much so that I'm ready to eat a puppy. :C I play the other games in the series in order to dull the need a little. So far it hasn't worked.
Writers block. I don't always get total writers block, I get different levels. Sometimes I just can't write for the thing I'm writing (a novel or an essay) and anything else while other times I can't write on the c
Beauty and the BeastI'm the beautyBeauty and the Beast4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And you're the beast.
Like wilting flowers
In house pots,
We seek the sun
But never truly see it.
Like ocean waves
That lap the shore,
Striving to become
One with the land.
Like cirrus clouds
That look down,
But are too high
To touch anything.
I'm the beast
And you're the beauty.

Upon his pillow
Holding whispered remorse.
Neatly tucked away
With a shadow of rain.
Melting with diamonds
That fall from my eyes.
Filled with love,
Filled with hate,
Filled with me.
The note lies,
Waiting to be opened
By his shaking hands.

ForeverThe black is as black as the night sky,Forever4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Shining with tiny stars like the night sky.
Edged like a razor, made to cut deep,
Making lines through which my ichor seeps.
You stare, frozen, at the ground,
As it pools around the hem of your new gown.
You grab my hands, pale and white,
And try to pull me away from the afterlife.
My head is in your lap as I smile up at you,
I tell you I love you and you say I love you too.
I see you grab the offending knife,
From which I defended your life.
You whisper that you can't go on without me in your life,
And plunge it through your heart with a sigh.
You smile upon me and with your last breath,
You speak in a whisper.....
Together forever, even in death....
A Tinge of DesireLost in the starlightA Tinge of Desire4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stuttering through love-flushed dreams
and waking up
with the taste of desire
carved across my torn, ever-blooming lips.
You are a whole new world,
almost too beautiful for my scarred eyes to bear.
I want to explore you;
let my fingers traverse the length of your spine
play hide-and-go-seek within the hollows of your collarbone
learn the untamed winds of your breath
and the way it feels, ever-so-soft against my neck.
I want to play the piano keys of your slender ribcage
and sing to the metronome of your miraculous butterfly-pulse
I want to dance
along the contours of your hips
and breathe in the scent
of your spidersilk-tangled hair.
Beautiful girl, I want to hold you in my arms
and kiss away each and every
to ever scar your wrists.
I could thaw your delicate,
between my callused hands
if only you'd trust me
enough to let me try.

He's dreaming of seeing the ring on her hand as she tosses the bouquet.
She keeps smiling; it's gone too far for her to crush his fantasy,
but inside her head she's trying to find a way to word it nicely.
He's trying to be meaningful, writing his heart into his vows.
She left her pen on empty paper, as down-hearted as her head would allow.
He's got love on the mind, and marriage encircling his ring finger.
But the ring on her hand burns her like a bee stinger.
He's the one who asked, the one who begged, but he just didn't see
that she gave in and settled when he decided to get down on one knee.
He goes to sleep with thoughts of the wedding filling his head,
but she stays up crying late at night, together but alone in his bed.
He wants her to be happy, that's the only reason he's trying so hard.
He just hopes she'll feel better with him as her husband and his fond regard.
She doesn't know what's wrong with her, why sh

But no measure of time with you will ever be long enough.
Because forever is just as far as tomorrow.
And even that might slip out of my grasp.
Now never lasts, because it's always changing.
Seconds tick by, and baby, you're all I need.

'Cause baby, that'd be all I ever need.
Because your forever with me,

when we were small
and the world seemed so huge
but we knew one day we'd be tall
back when we were still innocent
we didn't steal or lie or hurt
and our world was so black and white
and we didn't even know what that meant
back when we were naive
and we still believed
that grandpapa was just sleeping
and Buddy was on that special farm where people couldn't visit
and daddy always came home walking and talking funny
because he had to work long and was feeling tired
back when the world was flat
and the moon was made of cheese
we didn't try to understand
what we didn't know we made up explanations
we believed all our parents told us
because we didn't know better
back when life was no
Second ChanceI'm sorry that I broke your heart,Second Chance4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I now have realized in time.
That I broke my heart I gave you,
Which explains why I'm still obsessed with you.
You say that you forgive me,
But you won't give me another chance.
So I'm stuck here feeling like a hopeless boy filled with romance.
Don't we all deserve another chance to shine?
Another chance to prove that we learned from last time?
Another chance to make you smile, to make you laugh for a little while?
But you say no, never again,
We'll never be more than friends ever again.
You may have gotten over me,
You may have forgiven me too.
But know that I will always be in love with you.
Safe KeepingI find it sexier to slide in through your unlatched window.Safe Keeping4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's why you started keeping it unlocked, isn't it?
Trailing delicate fingers along cold bed sheets
I ponder your kisses, (I love the tingly way they burn),
and silently wonder where it is you hid your heart.
You gave it to me for safe keeping,
I am your secret hiding spot.
Your hearts inside me, isn't it?
Pulsing rhythmically with me own.
That must be why your kisses burn.

Because we can't run fast enough
We love our friends with all our hearts
But they still leave us one way or another
Because we weren't good enough
We focus on our school work
But fall just short of all A's
We must not have worked hard enough
We put our feelings into art and poetry
But can't even win one contest
Because no one liked it enough
We're called the losers, however
We're the ones that shape the world
And that knowledge is enough

you're in a house.
has been your home
your whole life through.
You were a child in it,
you grew up in it,
it's where you buried beloved pets,
where you hid your head in a storm,
where you took your first steps,
when you hugged your first stuffed bear.
But your house is falling apart,
it always has been;
the foundation was laid wrong,
but you stay
because there is nowhere else you can go.
You can't fix it,
you don't have the means yet,
and it's still standing -
no immediate threat -
so you leave it as is,
and go on with your life
in your house.
a storm rocks your world -
the beams creak,
and your whole house tremors
under a heavy gale of wind.
But your house is still standing,
still holding strong,
if only a little rocky,
so you stay,
in the back of your head
you picture the beams snapping,
the roof swaying,
and your beautiful house tumbling down,
the walls caving in and catching you while you sleep,
your love and life take

You were always there for me no matter what.
