Cold as death she sits alone
A fallen angel still as stone.
People point and stop to stare
About her no one seems to care.
As years pass she stays the same
And taunting her became a game.
Then the blows and kicks rain down,
In their hatred she starts to drown.
Bruises spread like spilled ink
Still she doesnt even blink.
Time has numbed her, dulled the pain
They wonder if shes gone insane.
Suddenly time seems to freeze
She feels a warm, gentle breeze.
The people part to make way
None of them know what to say.
A young man with raven hair
Doesnt seem to see them there.
He walks with a certain grace
That belies his angry face.
Why does she deserve such hate?
they reply, It is her fate.
And as his eyes rest on her
His face becomes kind and pure.
His warm hand cups her icy cheek,
She asks him What do you seek?
Then he replies, I dont, Ive found
As he lifts her from the ground.
Suddenly shes no

You don't know me right now, but trust me, I look just like you!
Let me tell you about myself!
I'm a boy, that has brown hair, and blue eyes just like you mommy!
You don't know me but when you figure out who I am, I bet you well be proud and happy!
Today you told daddy about your little tube that appeared a cross after you urinated.
You seemed to be surprised to me!
When you told dad he seemed angry.
I don't think you noticed though.
You said later that night that you enjoyed and loved me so.
I love you too Mommy!
The next day, daddy had a weird smell in his mouth... He punched you.
And he hurt you. I heard your heart that soothed me to sleep, is now beating really fast!
I got scared. You jumped back and put your hands on me to protect me.
I don't like daddy. He is scary. The other day he came up to you and apologized.
I still think he is a bad man. When I grow up, I will make sure no one will hurt you!
Tonight, you didn't talk to me or touch me, or even sing. You usually do,

"Come on Mrs. Carraway one last push." Said her Doctor and Mrs. Carraway pushed hard useing the rest of her strength. A cry was heard as the new baby cleared its lungs.
"Its a girl."Said the Doctor as her husband cut the umbilical cord and the Doctor handed the baby girl to one of the nurses to be cleaned off.
"Here that Jordan, sweet heart a baby girl." Her husband said kissing her sweaty forehead. The Nurse walked over with a pink bundle and handed Jordan her new daughter.
"Oh Jay she's beautiful." She said as their daughter calmed down and opened her eyes a bit and squirmed.

The Ugly TruthThe Ugly Truth3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The Ugly Truth
We shut our ears
We close our eyes
And live in Blissful IGNORANCE
If we knew the truth,
Our minds would rot
Our ears would bleed
And our eyes would be singed from our skulls
The ugly truth has been ignored
We don't want to face it
The world that does not exist
Lives in our mind
And dwells in our hearts
But that world is the true poison
Which infects others like a disease
That world that does not exist is a lie
Yet it is better than ours
The truth is real
Which will you choose?
Other GirlThe exhaustion makes me crazyOther Girl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The hand prints move
My shoes dance
Laughing. I hear laughing.
Just out of reach, somewhere in the distance..
I stumble after it, deluded, hazy
Call out, wondering why I can't reach
The happiness the others have
I collapse, defeated, drained.
My bed wraps around me, devouring me
I sink into is, letting the darkness and sleep claim me,
And I dream
My dreams are twisted, cruel, gruesome.
Bloody macabre horrors of the mind
My greatest fears, come to play
hopscotch with my subconscious
Not even my iPod can drown out
The cold sweats I wake up in
The laughter turns to cackles
The sun to moon
The light to dark
beautiful to repulsive
Is that me?
Am I still dreaming, or is that real?
In the mirror, I see a different girl
She has fangs and claws
blood seeping from open wounds
Stitches run up and down her body
Where they are ripped open, tears and blood wet the area
Her eyes are solid black
all traces of color gone
Hollow, that's all she is, that girl

To find a special guy
A moment all in passing
For him to catch your eye
They say it takes an hour
To appreciate this man
To really feel his presence
To know him as a friend
They say it takes a day
To love him in your heart
To want to hold him everyday
To never be apart
They say it will take a lifetime
To forget such a special bond
To erase each loving memory
To give up and move on
I guess for those who believe it
These words must all be true
But I cannot agree to this
When it comes down to you
A minute yes to find you
But that is where it ends
It didnt take an hour
For me to know that we were friends
A day for me to love you
Thats simply not the case
My heart skipped a beat for you
The moment I saw your face
A lifetime to forget you
Well that could never be
My heart and soul belongs to you
For all eternity
Im sure the words they say are meant
To be advise for all
To make sure its that perfect guy
Before we take the fall

Lost in my mind
I have gone numb
Focused on pain
But pain will not come
Burned to the core of my dead soul
Dreaming of days I once felt whole
My body is empty
My heart has gone cold
My eyes have been blinded
With the reflections of my old.
I cannot breath
I can only lie in this tomb, my mental sty
I lay and I wait in my own decay
And imagine a life not blown away.

Three Hundred Theme Challenge
When she was alive, Sloth had loved books. No matter what the weather was like outside, she could always be found in her town's local library, sitting in a corner with piles of books surrounding her like the walls of a castle. Some people had felt it strange for a young girl to spend so much time in the library, but as she got older people stopped caring.
With such a deep love of books, it was only natural that she would start to want to write a novel of her own. Sloth would have loved to write a book just as wonderful as the fictions she had spent most of her life reading. However, fate did not seem to share her wish as she died at the young age of eighteen; burned to death, surrounded by the very books that she loved so much.
After that, writing a novel had been the very last thing on her mind. Between training, fighting the Virtues, and exploring her new boss' massive library, she had almost no time to work on her own personal writing. Once,

Why must I be tested like this?
Is there a reason.
There is no destiny,
Only what you make of your situation,
That is what counts.
I want to have a steady home,
I want to have work,
I want to have a purpose.
Right now my will to live
Is only that,
I have no ambition but consistency,
No joy but in the long term.
My wishes are for the future,
No plan to change the present.
I will myself to know who I am,
Yet have failed at many a turn.
I wonder if all people feel as I do,
If they all hurt like this.
Are they hiding it like I am?
How can I tell.
Who are they,
I would like to know.
I want deep conversation,
Yet I want less some times.
Some times I want more.
Tell me what it is that I want,
I will tell see to it that you find your wants as well.
I want to be happy,
But I want them all to smile too.
These things can't happen at once.
What is it that I feel?
I can not tell,
And I am scared.

from the darkness and hurt
from everything that scares you
keep going and it will leave you
just keep running away from it all
until you come to realize something
you can never run
never get away from your problems
from everything that causes you pain
it's always there, eating away at you
until you face it head on
confront what angers you,
what hurts and leaves you alone and hurting
don't run away from it
stay and fight it until it goes away.
HerPain and love....Her3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's what I always feel around her
That there must be something I can do to help
I guess just being there and listening can do it for now
But it is so hard to just sit there and not be able to reach out and just
hold her and tell her that things will get better
That she can depend on me to be there for her
I want to be
But I don't know if she wants it
Whenever I try to ask, my tongue sticks to the back of my throat and my lips dry out.
All I can do is watch and listen to her and the pain she suffers
Even though it cannot be seen
I feel there is a glass wall between us
No matter how hard I try, I cannot break through
Only she can open the wall and let me in
But I don't know if she will

Wrapped up in memories...
I lost track of time
I felt so lost
And my tears fell
The day was cool and clear
All was peaceful
I remember it all to well
I miss you so...
And my tears fell
Wrapped up in memories
Now I think back to that day
And how the first crash looked like an accident
But now I know,
It was an attack
Now I know the truth
And then the second plane hit
Your panic-stricken face looking down at me from the 100th floor
It was almost as though you knew,
Knew that the end was near
Wrapped up in memories...
The explosions I remember all feel so real
Like they keep happening over and over
And my tears fell
I am lost without you
But you are gone,
Gone with the Twin Towers
And my still tears fall
Wrapped up in memories...
I will never forget you, or the terrible attack of 9/11,
You will always have a place in my heart,

The cold wind ruffles my fur,
The icy wind stings my eyes, is out searching for food
I shiver, and fluff out my fur.
A mouse searches for food.
I stalk it,
All my numb paws meet is cold snow...
That had been the only prey I'd seen in days,
And I missed it...
Suddenly I haer a crack.
I look up in fear, rooted to the spot.
I tried to run but I felt petrified.
The branch fell,
All I felt was immense pain all throughout my body,
The last thing I heard was a snap.
Then there was black.

With a brilliant smile that that tells you she cares?
She's strong and she's smart and you know that she knows
Now, it might surprise you (Oh, I know that it will)
That six months from now you'll run up a hill
With two glowing smiles you'll sit in her sun
While holding her hand and swear she's the one
No, you don't deserve it, you've been through enough
To know that when there is wanting, the going gets tough
But gather your doubts and just let them go
Because her laugh is a balm for the wounds in your chest
Her sweet voice will promise it is you she loves best
So showered with roses where you were unclean
You'll have to find comfort in having love seen
You know they betrayed you and left you alone
And still you insist that it's you who atone
And never again let your caring side show
Well, all that will change when you here her soft plea
"I must have misheard, but, do you love me?"
Oh mysterious beauty in her shower of curls

And my heart thrashing about in my chest, as if to get get free from it's captor
And the forced words of a reporter crying tears in front of the camera
And the stern voice of a President, bearing a grim visage, saying that there is nothing to fear
