You know, that movie that came out?
With all the songs and notes about fixing the words, "don't cut down tree's" "plant a tree"...
If you watched it?
Maybe you went off and said you're one of those people who do it.
Today, I saw a truck driving through the high way with 200+ neatly-cut tree trunks on it's back.
Not a single person looked at it twice.
I imagined the Once-ler hanging his feet off the end and slumped in a sad expression.
A few minutes later we crossed the bridge and I saw a large sloud of black smoke.
Just sitting there.
Many Humans are monsters.

Light among darknessLight among darkness5 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
A sunlit rose shall arise with the sun.
With burning desires betold, higher than the blue beyond.
And a passion unmatched by any other.
Everlasting love in red.
Moonlight lillies bloom in the glowing aura.
With absolute tranquility within the night sky.
The stillness of the water unbroken by its presence.
Delicate within a beautiful space.
To admire a beauty from a distance.
Because we are all waiting to be picked.
Whether in the light...
...or the dark...
You will be noticed.

I cannot start sentences with 'i will', because we don't make the choices anymore, we just choose from the remnants. i am too young for definitives. i want to go back to dreaming, and not making choices - they said i could do anything, but they lied.
take me back to when lying was just telling stories, "just tricking", take me anywhere provided it's backwards. I am too young to be th

The World of Black and White
Written by michael.m
On Friday, April 6th 2012
I never know is it morning or dark
I never know is it a beauty or a failure
I never know which road I am treading on
I just know how to walk and walk
With all the rest of my power
And with my eyes closed
The wind blows my face gently
Brings me cold and chill to my ashen skin
Finally I find my own freedom
After so long I was a prisoner
Of my routines and boring days
But not anymore
The scent of flowers softly fills my lungs
With the aromas I never smell before
Sweet like the Scily Isles
But tender like roses
I believe there is a garden laid before m

DioramaI could hear an ocean crashDiorama9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon the shore, where I stand frail
The shadows are dormant
As shadows stand vast
And cloudbanks shift
Merely to emphasize the emptiness
My lands are frozen
My artistry defiled
As the moon shapes crescendo
In stillness, when voices be heard
Empyrean desire, coursed through misbelief
Lays emphasis on the emptiness
Memories, steeped in disconnection
As shadows dance in folie
The diorama of post-mortality
Deliver me emptiness
HomeNow as the dusk will emergeHome9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And our mourning comes along
The dew drops will shimmer
As the green grass waves goodbye
There is a streak of sunset in my eye
The hidden shell of light
As I stretch my fingers before
To touch the waves ashore
The waters rushed, but found their calm
And so the snow-white came to me
She found my spirit in her palm
I said there'd be no other way for me
And so the lovers took their hone
And play the roles that fate had shown
"It doesn't matter where we go
Your heart will always be my home"

I look for the stars
I'm searching for escapes
That I still can't find
This star is your light
My father, you've died
But yet I still find you
In dreams of what I knew
The sun slowly goes down
My shadow is cast far
As I feel the winds blow
Onto trees that I don't know
My hands have yet tried
To hold on once more
When you lived at night
But embraced me no more
LimitlessThe skies are without limitLimitless11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And pathways without end
I look aside myself
And see my memories fade
When cities have no structure
And oceans never crash
Please, look beside yourself
Please, embrace me now
For I have stared here without reason
Did you once feel the same?
When I feel the limits fading
I wonder if you feel the same..
the search (poetry test 1)I knew her before my time and after.the search (poetry test 1)1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I looked for her my whole life.
Searching for the other side of my heart.
Searching for what I knew I had and what waited for me.
I passed through my tears and pain.
An endless room of darkness and screams.
And the fear that she will disappear when she is mine.
And that she might not feel the same.
Hope was my fire in the dark.
I felt that she was close.
My fire grew and cut through the darkness.
I saw her and I knew I had found it.
Our eyes met, she smiled.
She was looking for me too.
We ran to each other.
Our embrace felt like an eternity.
But lasted for only seconds.
The darkness close

the shade and the fire draped about my throat
like so many jewels.
I met the mist as an old lover,
let the dew paint my lips
with the scent of harvest.
In a white memory, you are still walking away,
down that same road.
Your hair was shining like the fall.
Your shape in the fog beckons;
ghost or vision, I care not.
I lose myself.

The path is rocky
The climb is steep
The journey is difficult
The reward is great
Anything worth having
Is worth fighting for
Anyone worth loving
Is worth dying for
Rising early each day
Finding a reason to breathe
Smiling all day long
No longer clinging to the night
Meeting life head on
Taking things a step at a time
Not rushing through the door
Knowing it's all worth while

To ForgiveThe battle was over, and Morgana was ashamed. She had failed her sister, she had failed her people.To Forgive2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
How could Merlin have turned out to be The One? How could he strike down their people - how could he betray them?
How had they lost the battle? Everything was precisely planned. Her sister had given her hope; her sister had led her towards the light. Her sister had reassured her over and over again that it was going to be alright.
But it was not alright, and now, broken and lost, she was to be cast away from her home only to be remembered as a traitor to both her kind, and Camelot.
Where would she go? What would she do?

He's usually inside when the first rumbles are heard, and then, there's no stopping him.
Today, Merlin is inside his room, cleaning it up without magic. Yes, he decided, it would be easier to clean it with magic, and probably no one would barge in and see him doing it, besides Gaius. But Merlin doesn't like taking chances with things like that unless he is using magic to save Arthur.
Merlin is making up his bed when the first murmurs are heard, and then a soft whisper incases the world.
Drip, Drip, Drip.
Merlin immediately feels the urge to run outside and
