Mindlessly.....Mindlessly.....3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have wandered this forest
Mindlessly searching for the end
I have fallen,
Stumbled and cried
Behind each tree a new stare
Each sound echoes
Endlessly searching for the end
Walking in circles
Each figure a figment in my past
Not everything stays the same
The days seem longer
The air seems clearer
Some days I think I will find the end
Break from this dark
Emerge a new person
My life, my own
My heart, for you
Only thing is
You need to find me
I'm here waiting
Just say when

CHAPTER 3: Conner Taylor!
The rest of the school day went by pretty fast. My last class was Algebra II, a good way to end the day. Math actually makes sense to me.
I walk out of the classroom and towards the student parking lot where my CRV awaits me. My parents had bought me the car up in Oregon after I got my license last year with all the textbooks weighing me down in my backpack. Why the hell would this school agree to have all seven periods a day is beyond me!
In my previous high school we had three to four classes a day due to block periods, odd periods one day and the next day even periods. It was simpler and gave the students an extra day to work on homework rather than every class wanting your homework done for the next day.
I turn around in response to see Conner just behind me. "Hey dude, what's crackin'?"
The person everybody seesI want to screamThe person everybody sees3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to cry
I want to kick and punch
And get rid of these emotions
Inside of me.
But I wont.
Because that ruins my image
Of a normal girl.
Outside is a normal
Happy, hyper girl.
Inside are all the
Emotions that I can't show.
I want to scream
And run away
And cry until I cant see
But I wont
Because you all
Wouldn't handle the real me.
The one who's bitchy
The one that's over sensitive
The one that doesn't listen
The one who hates everything
So leave me alone
So I can cry
So that I can be
That no one else sees.
Promise MeIf I tied you to a treePromise Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Told you to stay if you love me
Would I some day return to see
Your skeleton still there for me
Or would you be like everybody
And just abandon me?
If I beat you, almost to death
But then nursed you back to health
Would you love me like your breath
Or view me as the theft to your soul wealth?
If I tied you to a tree
Begged you to never leave me
Would you still try to get free
Never wanting to be near me
Or would you wait and see
If you're the one for me?
If I broke your bones,
Struck you with stones,
Then left you alone,
Would your heart still be my home?
If I tied you to a tree
Commanded you to wait for me
Would you stay obediently
Existing only for me
Or would you become a nobody
And be forgotten by me?

New Year's Eve, 1999
On New Year's Eve in 1965 a young couple stood before a minister in the house
of the young man's parents. The house, now long since gone, built around the
turn of the century, stood in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, many miles from
the Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the young woman.
The gathering there included only the young man's family, all of whom must
have been skeptical about the chances for the success of the marriage beginning
that day. The couple had known each other only about four months, and had spent
most of those four months separated by hundreds of miles of telephone line.
She had ridden the train to Atlanta a few days earlier, back when train lines
had names; this line had been called the "Nancy Hanks." He picked her up at
Union Station, a magnificent depot, now also long since gone. He spotted her
coming up the enormous marble stairs from the platform to the main floor, also
marble. It was a beautiful scene, this pretty girl coming t

Elles sont, dans leur apparente pagaille, dans l'air vibrant de leurs chants de bataille, les petits soldats de l'or, les ouvrières des doux airains, les ardentes glaneuses de la poudre sacrée qui perle au cur des fleurs, semence de la vie par les vents dispersée. Dentellières ronchons que les bourdons d'ébène et les frelons zébrés admirent en secret, elles tissent en chur d'hexagonales niches, des puits de rêves blonds, des temples foisonnant des ocres de l'été, de dorures d'acanthe. Alchimistes des airs, sorcières du soleil, dont elles capturent l'âme et les rayons cachés, elles essaiment tant, et s'aiment tant et tant, qu'elles ne forment qu'un seul corps aux milliards d'ailes, un seul esprit uni par des moissons fidèles, un seul peuple volant au chevet de sa reine. Confiseuses des dieux, déesses des gourmands, leur dessert naturel éblouit de ses feux leur palais merveilleux sous nos yeu

As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine
AloneAlone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You were alone from the start,
But you didn't care back then.
You were special.
So special that no one could understand you.
But that was special too.
No one could reach you in your bubble.
Then the others came.
They were more special.
You pulled away.
While being surrounded you felt so alone.
Until you were really alone.
And no one could understand you.
Not even you.
You tried to change.
But the bubble was strong.
You kicked and screamed, but no one noticed.
That was what the bubble was for.
Then came the time when they pushed you away.
They couldn't have known you are different.
Are you different?
you drifted away,
They won't remember.
They won't remember what they never knew.
Did you know?
Who are you?
Why is it painful?
What is painful?
Why are you crying?
