thrashing and flailing as if grabbed by the heart.
Covered in ashes or frozen to the spot,
everybody's dying there's no escaping the plot.
This I believe is the reason we die
the population is growing, polluting the sky.
Our endless hunger depleting the trees,
crushing the food chain and causing lungs and stomachs to bleed.
On top of it all
our murderous ways
cause us to kill each other
leaving us mourning for the rest of our days.
This I believe
is the reason we send
others to save us
from our unstoppable end.
Sick Or SaneEverything I built up slowly crumbles awaySick Or Sane4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All the lights in my head have gone out
The poison within numbs my heart to the pain
A tired voice in my head starts to shout
But it just doesn't matter how loud I may scream
After all its all locked in my head
Am I fading away just like all of my dreams
Do I still breathe or am I long dead
Now my tired hands are trembling as I try to push through
Why I'm trying I no longer know
Everything I held dear is now wasting away
Should I hold on or should I let go
Am I sick in the head or is this just me
Honestly I can't tell anymore
What I do understand is that somethings not right
How did these broken thoughts pierce my core
Now I'm trying to crawl my way through the debris
I've been searching these ruins for myself
An emotional earthquake has torn me apart
I just hope I'll escape with my health

From glistening tarnished lips
I hear the Siren's Call
Come and join us here
In a warped suspended fall
In a separated world
Where nothings ever real
It would surely be absurd
To ever have to feel
Just come and take a sip
From the devil's polished cup
Enter this poisoned paradise
We'll greedily hoist you up
Where you can lazily dream
Your bleak existence away
Without any cares
Without any pain
These entities are a paradigm
Of all that you can be
These faces found suspended here
Look strangely familiar to me
The Siren's hypnotic song
So deliciously intoxicating
Someone hurry,please reach out
I feel the weightless falling
So scared that I will leave
The land of the living behind me
Hang by the grappling noose
Of the lost and sleepless dreaming

Deaf Like Me...?I took a course at the University of the West Indies (UWI) called Deaf Language and Culture. One assignment of this course was to spend a day as a 'deaf' person, ignoring what I hear; and to spend at least 3 hours with Deaf people. A very rewarding day! I spent a lot of time with JSL (Jamaican Sign Language). Do enjoy!Deaf Like Me...?4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

4:30 p.m. Begin
4:31 p.m. - On the way to Papine from the UWI, I see an old high school friend and give a gestural greeting. He answers with a wave of his own and a voiced greeting; I keep walking after a nod.
I go on to try to find the Danny Williams School so I will know how to get there in the morning. I realize how much I rely on hearing; at almost every outburst that someone makes from out of a bus window or from anywhere behind me (and there are many school-aged young ones around at the time) I turn around to see what it is; it is very hard to stop myself.
After I find the school, as I am heading bac

Lighting up the dark as each flake reflects the dim glow
of the old street lamps.
The sky is glowing orange,
The ground is shimmering white;
And the tranquility is disturbed only by our laughter...
We run and dance, falling to the ground in a cloud of white.
Lying there, cold and wet, we laugh and laugh...
I couldn't feel warmer.
And to think I was growing tired of winter...

Anyone may say it's deathly, treacherous, and way too risky. For five months she carefully repeated the plan over and over inside her head, spotting out loopholes and twisting it so there were no interferences. There had been no hesitation then. Why only now, is it hard to let go of everything in this world?
Maybe it's because he loves her.
They've been best friends for ten months, and she never gave a pondering thought about a relationship with Skye. Now that realization dawns, waves of shock overcome. The true saying: "Friends come and go" is what she believes. He is a friend. If she goes and kills herself off, he won't care or fall to his knees and mourn. Simply, he'll move on with life and forget all about her.

I can't believe I'm here in Seoul for the third time.
Not that I mind of course, it's just not what was planned.
None of this was planned.
Last time I was here for a little vacation, the time before that I had a book signing for the first book I wrote in Hangul.
That book is the reason why I'm here today. About two weeks ago I was sitting at a café when a man approached me saying he wanted me to write a book about some people who worked in his company. It wasn't until he told me that there were ten members of boy band that I got suspicious.
"A boy band with so many members? Could it be anyone besides Super Junior?" I asked skeptically.
"Yes, yes! That's right!" he exclaimed, surprised that I knew who they were.
"Ahh. But sir, non-fiction isn't my style of work" I said. As stupid as it seems to try and turn down an offer like that, I couldn't fully believe what was going on and I didn't entirely trust myself with such an project.

The empty house contains her quiet sobs. In the house, not much is left. There is a queen-sized bed that creaks when laid down on. One unbalanced table fit for four seats is placed in the center of the room. A moderately clean dark brown wooden closet is well on its way attracting small spiders. Cupboards and a sink are starting to break down, worn out and falling off their hinges.
Three words: "Let me go." Refusing to meet his gaze, she stares at the ground and clenches her fists. At any moment now, she can strike a blow at him...but she won't. He hasn't done anything wrong. This...is none of his business. "This is what I want." Her mouth twists into a grimace. She desperately aches for it: that only wish, only desire. The only thing that's stopping her...

Wise PineappleMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after dogs because you'll only end up with a pineapple in your leg." I never quite understood his advice until one Valentine's Day, I was gardening with my best friend Rylie. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was squishy and spooky sounds came from deep within. Rylie saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again.

"Hey Gwen." My best friend Jack cheerfully greeted me as he entered our carpentry. He was carrying his axe, so I figured that he would be chopping for some lumber.
I smiled nervously at him, my heart racing.
"Hey Jack. Nice weather we have today." I said as I felt my cheeks warm. "Do you need anything?"
"Just came to see you before I go to the forest to get some lumber." He laughed in his husky voice that I have always loved. "Anyway, here you go!" He took out a Gold Milk from his bag and carefully passed it to me.
"Whoa. Thanks!" I happily took the milk from him and placed on top of the table.
"I'll share some with the guys later. Anyways, thanks so much. You really do know what I like."
"Of course, I'm your best friend!"He scratched his head and chuckled lightly. "Hey, I'm off to the forest now I'll pass by again maybe later in the evening. You know, I have to visit Ly"
"Yeah, sure. Be careful and good luck." I cut him off mid-sentence and gave him a quick smile. It hurts

Speak peace to the sinner's soul
As spring holds back so as not to reveal
The sins of summer's shady past
And autumn's slow death toll
The grace of clouds that pass in icy chill
To hold in time the hope that fills
The sinful heart with joy
To know that at winter's end
All will be forgiven
In spring to come, life will renew
As thawing rivers wash away an unfruitful past

Key stood awkward with his hands in his pickets, shaking from side to side, rocking on the balls of his feet. Yunkyung looked at him pointedly to tell her what they were going to be doing next. Key ignored it, smiled mischievously like the little fox he was, and started dancing to SHINee's new song on the street.
She laughed but applauded at his show.
Some people gathered around, taking pictures and applauding too. When Key stopped, she thought he'd do some fan service for a couple of people that had recognized him since there were a lot of Kpop fans in LA but he surprisingly grabbed her hand and took off running. She hoped nobody recognized her and put pictures up on the internet.
They ran for awhile, Key holding her hand naturally which was becoming a habit she sinfully admitted she loved. They ran into an ice cream shop.
Once they caught their breath, she smiled lightly, looking at where they were. It was their favorite place to go together,

Key loved and hated his flight back.
He didn't like that he was alone and bored out of his mind because his iPod had died after 20 minutes when he needed music. But he also couldn't hate anything about this day because he was still living in the 24 hours that had been the most amazing day he'd had in a while.
Because he'd finally been able to see Yunkyung.
Even if he hadn't said he loved her, he'd shown it in so many ways as he was sure she did too and he was able to just simply bewith her and make many more memories. He could barely remember a time when he hadn't felt nervous, giddy and pleased just to be in her presence.
Though he could remember those first few weeks he'd known her, he didn't understand how he could be feeling that way then now.
Key wasn't sure if he'd seen anything so ugly on even ajummas living on the streets in the middle of winter.

When Yunkyung woke up in the morning, she'd been tossing and restless most of the night, rather than crying, so she was feeling very groggy. She noticed through fuzzy vision that there was a plate of eggs and toast with a glass of orange juice on her bedside table.
It made her smile but also saddened again. It seemed even when she wasn't around Key, as long as there was Kevin around, she'd always be reminded of him. Making her breakfast and setting it somewhere so she had something to eat as soon as she woke up had always been something Key had liked to do.
Now she wondered if Kevin usually did this for his family, or if he had some sort of intention to get on her good side. Maybe show he could take care of her and be the perfect boyfriend. Then she felt bad for suspecting that of her friend, who was just doing his countless number of good things he did a day like always.
She sat up and stretched, fixed her pajamas and flattened her hair, tucking
