I search and look for hours,
But last night while out of my mind
I wrote it down,
surrounded by words of love and flowers,
What a funny secret, what a funny way
to fall in love with someone
and not know what to say.
Its a matter of misunderstanding,
a matter of asininity,
that makes one fall in love this way
and lose the longing to see.

play roulette with the gun in the table drawer,
wish we could,
wish we would
blow it away,
throw it all away.
We've all had our moments
and we've all had our days
where its been easier
to look away,
just look away.

if only you would try...
striped the walls in grey and blues
thought your mind could take a fall
and wrong I was, wrong we were,
come again when the days come
light and early,
when dawn breaks at noon
take a yellow one to touch the sun
in your blackened mind,
along the edge of darkened rooms
to wonder at an empty space,
fill the world with walls,
fill those walls with words
and kill what won't conform
In the end you've got you
and the time
could only matter in your lonely, logical ends.
Sitting up nights with circles growing darker under ocean eyes,
told the night to give it a try,
sleep comes hard when one can't speak,
words come hard when that sleep is weak
I'll write you a poem if its the last thing I do...

but not the sound,
silent film loops
of a voiceless face
going through and through
the back rooms
of a place I wouldn't know anymore.
I remember your guitar
but not the chords you played,
forming half-assed chords,
the sound was rough
but I asked you to play it just the same.
And sometimes you would,
sometimes you would.

"Welcome," a voice spoke as a young girl stepped into the pitch-black room. "Please state your name."
"I-I'm Kate Yamaki," the young girl spoke nervously. This wasn't what she had expected when she signed up.
"Take the Styler from the desk next to you."
Kate reached over, taking the small device in her hand. She noticed the device was round in the front while it then led back into a small handle from there. A small flap covered a set of buttons and graphs on the back of the device. "Now what?"
"Step forward and use the device to capture this," the voice spoke once more and in an instant a small yellow rodent jumped forward. It had long pointy ears that ended in black spots at the top, while its tail was long and shaped like a lightning bolt. It also had smell red circles on its cheeks where electricity seemed to spark from. "Simply pull the switch on the Styler and the Capture Disc will release from it. Guide the Disc around the Pikachu and capture it."

Dances back and forth in between neuron transmittors.
Rapid fire thought, day-dream believer, hippie, lover.
She tastes the rain like good tea,
feels the rain like thunder in the vein.
Second-hand life, worn out couches, strife.
Two wrongs never did make a right &
bombs never did have sight
so she wandered out

the sky wasn't clear.
Your nights reign supreme

in my mind she sways
in my mind she's back
and that's the only place she'll stay

“Hey, Yaya.” You said as you adjusted one of the wigs at Yaya’s booth, smiling as she smiled at you.
“Hi __y/n__!” Yaya said cheerfully, grabbing a lollipop from a bag underneath the table.
She popped the pink end into her mouth and sucked on it, flashing you another smile as you reached into a box to get a print out. You arranged them neatly on the table and chuckled in amusement as a cute little girl stepped nervously up the table, shyly asking Yaya for a picture.
Yaya agreed immediately, stepping away from the table and placing an arm around the girl while her mother snapped a photo. The girl squealed quietly as she walked away with her mother, practically bouncing in excitement.
That was one of the things you adored about Yaya, she was so genuine. She was sweet and nice to everyone, always willing to take a picture or sign a photo.
“How do I look?” Yaya asked, spinning around for you as she was preparing to leave the booth again.

Ten years and no flying cars
Just zoomed-in poon of TV stars
Good girls gone bad, reality shows
A decade blooms, and man, it blows.
No Rapture, no Jesus, no Holy Ghost
Except on some chick's cheesy toast
Where's my house that talks to me?
Screw this lame reality.
A president who sneaked inside
For a two-term party ride,
Towers falling, hate groups rising
(and bathroom stall infidelitizing)
Floods in Asia, floods in NOLA
My favorite song sells coca-cola
There's a war on this, a war on that
And it's all because of body fat.
Abu Ghraib and waterboards
Preachers falling on their swords
Sure I fucked him, but I'm no queer!

Mac ads by the Dalai Lama
ODs, emo, balloon boy flights,
It's our Garden of Earthly Delights.
Moral panics, paranoia

A fucking documentary
I think we're growing up too fast
This whole damn century's half-assed.

Life's Solemn SongLife's Solemn Song3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
These lines they speak of love and life
Because times are hard and filled with strife
Love and friendship keep us sane
So that our lives can sojourn the pain
Friends come and go, love never dies
The seasons change, and death we descry
Flowers grow bright and strong, in the sweetest dew
Memories are everlong, nightmares we can't undo
The feather of our wings keep us afloat
From the ravines of our despair remote
We can hide and struggle, grin and bare
Or follow calm, without resistance or snare
Life is hard, but we must persist
There's somethings in this life we must resist
Blue skies go gray and rain pours down
Pray that we don't lose hope and drown
Things change, life goes on
Spread your wings, like a beautiful swan
The Sun will rise, Night will fall
Rivers run dry and trees recall
Don't give up hope, for things will get better
Keep your head held high, and don't fetter
Walk straight the path in which you choose
Have confidence in yourself and you'll never lose
Friends will remain, Fam
Making a Naruto OCNaming your OC: Some people find that naming your OC before designing them, choosing their abilities, choosing their personality, etc. is easier than creating the character. I usually do this step last. Anyways, it's important to understand how the Japanese choose their children's name. Naruto doesn't take place in Japan but it is based in an Eastern Asian culture and world. Japanese people don't have middle names. Also the Japanese don't usually name their children after a relative or themselves. They usually take a kanji from whomever's name they want to give their child. For example, if the father's name is Daiki the son might get the kanji "dai" and might be named Daisuke. Some names that are ridiculously common among Naruto OCs are Ookami, Tori, Yuki, Akuma, Kumiko, Mai, Yumi, Kiyo, Kyo, Nami Yuri, Ai, Ken, Dan, Kei, Keiko, Chi, Emi, Emiko (I do have one but I chose it for the meaning. ) Akiko, Sora, Ryu, Rin, Rei, Tora, Yuu, Amaya, Aka, Kuro (I'm such a hypocrite), Gen,Making a Naruto OC5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Funny Computer poem for seniorPOEM FOR SENIOR COMPUTER USERSFunny Computer poem for senior6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A Computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note
A Window was something you hated to clean
And Ram was the father of a goat.
Meg was the name of my girlfriend
And Gig was a job for the nights
Now they all mean different things
And that really Mega Bytes.
An Application was for employment
A Program was a TV show
A Cursor used profanity
A Keyboard was a piano.
A Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
And if you had a 3-inch floppy
You hoped nobody found out.
Compress was something you did to the garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you Unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while.
Log On was adding wood to the fire
Hard Drive was a long trip on the road
A Mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a Backup happened to your commode.
Cut's what you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A Web was a spider's home
And a Virus was the flu.
I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper

The Morality of HomosexualityA father picks up his newspaper the morning after he buried his son, a Marine Corps Corporal. He found the front page dominated by a story about protesters thanking God for killing another soldier.The Morality of Homosexuality7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The protester's justification? Their message is supported by scripture: God is punishing America for being tolerant of homosexuals and the death of soldiers is a welcome sign of Gods wrath.
How is a parent supposed to feel when their beloved child, who happened to be different, dies fighting to protect a people who's only response is Youre going to hell! and God hates you! ?
The claim in question today is "Homosexuality is morally wrong, because God says so." I disagree. A person's sexual orientation has nothing to do with morality.
Let's look at what parts of the Bible support this claim. A few sample translations from various publications include:
King James Version, first published in 1611: "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is ab

The Second Tale: What's in will someday be out.
Taij had been gone for approximately two hours when Tajina went out searching for him. It was only the second week that he'd been with her, but he'd begun venturing out on his own most times. Sometimes she would come home and see a small note posted on the fridge. Sometimes Taij left a witty comment, other times it was a simple "Check you later". Of course, the contents of the note depended on his mood. His mood in turn, was affected by his music. Yes, his music.
It had seemed strange to her at first that her character, Taij, had been wearing earphones when she hadn't ever given him any in the original story. Yet, when he'd come to life, they'd been placed right over his earsstrange thing was, it looked like they belonged there. What was even stranger than the earphones was his personality.

The moon was high in the sky, the sun long forgotten by now as the stars danced around to penetrate the darkness. The hour was late, and the slight chill created the perfect conditions for a sleep-friendly atmosphere. And yet, your insomniac of a son still decided that he couldn't sleep. Or rather, he didn't want to go to sleep. Little Justin had become quite the literature lover; even at such a young age, and this fondness of book required his father to read to him every single night. After all of children's books had been read, his little mind was still abuzz, unable to rest properly at the moment.
"Daddy, one more book, please? Please?" he begged.
With a sigh, Levi glanced down at the boy; all bunched up like a caterpillar in a cocoon. His precious little eyes, identical to yours, left him unable to resist the lad's request.

A snort escaped him as he turned back to the path, clearly the woman had lost her mind.
