Looking for the years?
You'll find them in my watch
Where they click away,
An instantaneous mess.
I'm searching for them in the sky,
The memories I've lost
A waste of time,
You'll find them hardwired in my arm
Along with my nerves.
When I set fire to my home,
And patched my soul with staples,
I kept whispering
through clenched teeth:
But something tells me

Chapter 7: New Developments
It was early enough at school that the hallways weren't yet crowded with students. There were already a few milling around, but not crowds. This was how Nolin preferred it. At least at this time of day, none of those guys that bullied him were usually here yet. Usually. Still, every corner he turned, every time he opened his locker, he was wary. This time was no different. After looking around to ensure no one was around, at least as far as he could tell, he opened his locker carefully, slowly. Nothing happened.
Opening the locker quickly the rest of the way, Nolin began emptying his backpack into it and replacin

Right now, what he really wanted to know was, if an engine revs in a city and only mindless zombies are around to hear it, did it actually make a sound?
Kavinsky smirked to himself as he passed another light, one that was no longer working. He thought himself pretty clever. His smile was short lived however as he noticed he was driving on fumes. He began scanning the occasional cars he passed and saw many of them had their fuel tanks pried and left open. Damn.

i can offer you my hand to hold
and my jacket in the rain and cold

Coming to Terms
Shepard rubbed his hands over his face and took a deep breath as the door slid closed behind him. The hollow dull ache inside him that usually followed in the aftermath of a major combat mission like Noveria was, this time, counterpointed by a much sharper piercing ache that was buried underneath the dullness.
Shepard looked up as he heard Dr Chakwas enter the Medibay. "Oh hello Commander, if I knew you were here I would have come down s
The Eyes WithinIt is a dark and cold night.The Eyes Within7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I can see my breath when I breathe.
I stop and stare into a store window.
I imagine having the beautiful necklace,
wrapped around my neck.
I continue walking,
In search of what I'm looking for.
I keep my head down,
staring at the ground below me.
I sense something closing in,
But I pay no attention to it.
I feel the sudden pressure
On my arm
As if I ran into something.
I fall to the ground.
I look up and apologize
To the gentle man I ran into.
He extends his arm out
As if wanting to pick me up.
I grab his hand
As he lifts me to my feet.
I thank him for his kindness.
He looks into my eyes,

Broken by the Unattainable.To love someone you cant have,Broken by the Unattainable.6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is to me torn apart, and shattered inside.
To be broken to pieces and constantly cried.
To reach out with no hope,
Of touching his hand,
To be under true loves constant demand.
With no chance of a future,
With no hope in mind,
A cure to the problem you search to find.
Tried Tried again,
And yet constantly failed,
Youre heart bares the marks of being constantly nailed.
Ripped apart is your oppressors dream,
To scar you, to tear you,
No fool do they seem.
Youre hardly aware,
As they tie up the knot,
It tightens you heart,
its what you had fought.
They tug and they pull,
Blinded from the goodWe all search for something,Blinded from the good6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Something deep within,
To tell us who we are,
And where we should begin.
Our hearts flutter,
With a simple thought,
Our minds wonder,
On what they should not.
Our eyes open,
To see this dream they had,
Our ears listen,
But hear nothing but the bad.
We say we search for good,
But the bad is all we find,
We lie to ourselves,
For from the good were blind.
There is a lot of evil,
Eroding at our lives,
But just keep walking on,
For in your back there are no knives.
We envision how they wronged us,
And we are made to look the fool.
Wasting our energy,
Always using the wrong tool.

and im so sick of being burned
and im tired of all the love ive given
being given back but not returned
and im tired of wasting my heart
and im tired of giving it my all
and the place where you heart once was
well its getting pretty small
and im so sick of love, but am i love sick?
and im sick of falling in love
and its so hard to fall out
and does love really exist?
well as for me ive got my doubts
cuz open hearts they dont come easy
and the closed ones are so cheap
and i find one more on the 'for sale' rack
i swear ill bury it six feet deep
cuz im so sick of love, but am i love sick?
thoughts on lovewhat is love do you think?thoughts on love9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
is it something you hold?
and if you were to blink
would it turn to cold?
does love wain and wax?
or fail under pain
or does love never vex
or put others to shame
love makes you act like a fool
and makes you not think straight
if your not careful you can be her tool
but thats not love thats hate
yes love sometimes hurts
and you arent sure where to turn
love can throw you lots of curves
and to normal you cant return
but if you love that girl with all you have
and she loves you back
then you will truely never have
a life for to turn back
for when you are in love
you can say that it doesnt hurt

And I died a little inside
The first died the First Of All
You are two, what did you do?
You've yet to hear death's call
We are three
You, him and me
But it wasn't always this way
though we are happy
The world is pained
Everyone suffers and every edge is frayed
Before we were three
I was a lonely young man
Locked away in my room
No talent nor friends nor family tree
But one cold grey day
A familiar crept upon me
With black, oozing grip
It choked my soul away
Our number one
Went to and fro
red hot fast until
His ride was over his days were done
His body was never found
an empty coffin was lowered into the

a derelict building shifts its swollen form
wire cage elevators moving carefully as it swallows
nestled in a womb of fragile concrete fibres
the child of paint and pastel colours stirs
searching blindly for that energetic outside world
it stretches its delicate arms like an earthquake
Tell me where you come from, what you remember
of the black ground. Talk in riddles only your kind
understands, talk in flowers, talk in thorny branches.
You crack the foundations in starlike patterns, and
you stretch the heart of you for the concrete above,
longing to carry the sky as a bed for the Sun.

Clu for the most part never complained about his everpresent shadow. Sure, at times, he would shoo Rinzler off for a moment alone or intentionally play games with the enforcer for his own amusement.

My transformation could not be stopped
A weakened heart is to blame
Remnants of tears are left
I will never be the same again
So tired of everything / These memories of suffering
This is my dark reincarnation / Oh thou have forsaken
I am not your messenger anymore
I'm blind from keeping faith
I no longer recognize a savior
There's no more numbing the pain away
Lock me up
Destroy the key
I'm not strong enough
To ever be free
So please clip my wings tonight / Never again will I take flight
Allow me to be useless / I yearn to be powerless
It won't be wrong
To take another shot at me
I am done

One very more sealing
So ill look and be near
But i will fear
You will never love me
