As a Leo
It's my duty
To lead when in a time of need
As I Leo, I must be strong
To save those from doing wrong
The fire in my soul
Will never die
It shall burn for all of eternity, in another's body
After I die
All Leos, we never truly die
We pass along our fire to another
They use it
Each time it is passed, it gets bigger, stronger
The more fire, the more courage, the more of a fight for survival
It is my duty to protect those I love
Even if it means my life
I will protect my Pride from those trying to take it
Never will they take it
My kin will live, and grow
Do not underestimate me
I know my own strengths and weaknesses
I have my secrets like the rest
But I love as well
I know right from wrong, left from right
As a Leo, I have an anger that not many people can beat
Do not mess with me when I'm angry
I have been know to…
Bite people's heads off
I become angry
I feel hate
I can cower at the feet of a foe
I can be compassionate
And through it all
I am alive
I am Leo

The Pocky Game and a bunch of cops
I left the school, finally. On my way home I realized the school rooftop was a place full of memories. That’s where I first met Kei and Lia officially and I don’t remember, but I’m sure a bunch of things will happen there.
When I finally arrived home I saw a bunch of cops surrounding my house and suddenly I had a flashback, though’ that flashback was mostly a blackout, which meant, something bad had happened.
“Oh son of a…”
What would you do... if everything you once knew turned out be just a dream? If all the people you once met... are just part of that dream?
I was shocked “What were all those cops doing around mi house?” I dropped my backpack and ran towards my house. I saw my mother with a really worried face talking to a cop.
“MOM! What the hell is going on?!”
“Oh my god! Kei! I was so worried about you!”
She saw me and hugged me tightly.

I am beautiful, loved and worth
It gave me hope
Hope of tomorrow
Even though I denied your words
Yes, denied, my dear.
Hate myself more
I love to hate..
I love to hurt...
You see now..
I'm not beautiful, loved or worth
Mirror shows this demon inside me
This evil heart taking over
I wanted to...
I was too weak
Not ready for your...
You can't see me anymore
I'm not worth seeing
I'm not worth to you beautiful people
Why I'm so stupid...
Grieving day after day
Not letting you through...
I told myself...
I'd survive alone
I was wrong
It's too late
To erase this mistake
I'm asking forgiveness
For what I've done
Hurt you all
... The world
But how can I
Win this game
When it's already over
Just how can I..
How can I..
How can I..
Messsage in a bottleSometimes people cry out for help,Messsage in a bottle2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I think we all have witnessed it,
We watch them break,
We watch their tears,
And we see something in their eyes,
The last piece of hope,
The hope that as well could be a message in a bottle.
Who will ever know if someone noticed that tiny little bottle in the ocean,
Or if they did,
Did they pick it up?
I have seen a lot of bottles in my time,
And most of the time I pick them up,
But I notice quite a few times I don´t,
It is like they become invisible,
Even if they scream loudly right in front of you,
I think something is wrong,
Why do we leave the bottle in the ocean?
I clearly can see they need help,
And I see it,
I really do,
How can you pretend not to?

One of them is the happiest, cutest, most playful and cuddly polar bears in the world. His name is Manny. Manny is so energetic and creative; ready for anything. Millions of wonderful and amazing ideas flow through his mind every day. He could take on the world. He loves everyone and everything. To Manny, life is fantastic; the world is beautiful.
The other's name is Depry. Unlike Manny, Depry is sad. He does not have the energy and motivation that Manny has. In fact, he doesn't have the energy for anything. Depry is easily annoyed by everything around him; including the things he loves; which makes him get mad, and them get hurt. When Depry gets mad at the things he loves, he cries and cries. He does not want to hurt the things he loves, but he cannot control it. It just happens.
When Depry is sleeping, Manny is wide awake. I do not mind it too much when Manny is awake. I feel happy when he visits. However, it's not all fun and games when Ma

C'est mon dernier jour de vie.
Je suis sur mon mur, comme chaque jour.
Je vois passer les enfants, comme toujours...
A l'habitude faillit pourtant une chose : un de ces géants m'a vu.
Il m'a saisit par la pointe de la queue, me rendant ainsi inoffensif. Sa poigne m'a fait souffrir. Ce n'était pourtant rien à côté de ce qui allait m'arriver...
Il m'a placé dans un plastique, un sachet de bonbon. J'étais à l'étroit, j'avais peu d'oxygène. Je pensais mourir là et j'aurais préféré- mais mon supplice à continuer.
Le sachet a disparu dans une trousse, moi à l'intérieur. J'ai été plongé dans le noir, secoué, terrorisé...
Tout s'est arrêté brusquement, puis a reprit quelques secondes. Un bruit de fermeture éclair a fait réapparaître la lumière. Le gamin a reprit le sachet dans ses mains. Je me trouvais alors dans une classe. La fille

You accepted the lies you heard
And if those lies do come true
It's going to be the end of you
You'll fight to be sane
You'll cry like the rain
Hush little teenager just don't speak
Each day you live you only get weak
And if you are strong enough to stand
It's only because you had a helping hand
You'll pretend you're okay
And smile through the day
On the inside your just
Screaming to be saved
But on the outside you are
Just another lazy teenager
unable to help anyone
not even yourself
Save MeI am lost deep withinSave Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cannot find my way out
Silently crying in despair
I can hear only echoes
Of my unheard pleads
My voice is slowly fading
This sore throat failing me
Eyes cannot see through
Where did the light go
I feel my blood pouring
Running down my body
As I tremble weakly
Pain is holding me awake
They left me all alone
Trapped me down here
In the bitter cold
Freezing ice under me
Making me numb
Save me with your love
Morbid HeartThese painful tears still fall downMorbid Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For the suffering I never give in
Angel wings of mine covered in crimson
Had forgotten how to fly long time ago
This little piece of ice I hold in my hands
For it shows the coldness deep inside
These eyes now empty and merciless
No tears, no more tears I shed
In this forest of darkness I walk
As a deadly shadow of the night
I roam forevermore these paths
There is still lost beauty within
These morbid thoughts better hide
They have darkened innocent hearts
Once so warm, pure and loyal
Turned into the worst suffering
His vicious life
Ends as the dawn rises
This shattered heart of mine I give
... For freezing winter
For fallen leaves
For forsaken lands...

In the beginning, when people first began, they had white skin, white hair, and white eyes. The lived underground, in caves, and never ever went outside. Men and women didn't bond for life and their children were raised by all people.
The caves were cool, but never cold and never hot. The people did not hunt, but lived peacefully with the small night-creatures that shared their cave. All was peace.
There was no religion, no one or many gods. There were only people. They did not travel. Each group thought of their own cave as the only inhabited place in the world, besides the animals which did not speak as they did.
And one day, the children, many children from many different caves all across the world, ventured outside of the safe, cool darkness. They entered the world into springtime and were amazed.
GrowthI remember the day I caught him 'gardening'. His cheeks stained cherry with the brisk wind that trotted beside him up and down the smothered garden path. He dropped a seed as his feet brushed past each other. Up and down he walked, a solemn lieutenant. I asked him what he was doing and those wide sky eyes reflected the ice as he told me he was trying to grow flowers for his mother. I looked at the seeds spilt on the snow and told him that they could never grow in these circumstances. I will never forget the clench in my heart when he responded, with a child's tongue; "I know".Growth2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

I had never met anyone
With so many tattoos
(But I was young and naive, then).
For months, I looked at you
It had never occurred to me
That each pattern you wore
Had symbolism, meaning
And that you had a story
For each one.
When I finally spoke,
I found you affable, garrulous
Kind and open
Your green cat’s eyes
Twinkling with good humor.
We let the afternoon roll off our backs
Like beads of sweat in the sauna
And shared a symphony of conversation
As twilight inked the sky in darkening shades
Of gold and luminous purple.
You came to visit, that winter
We walked beneath the soaring span
The bridge far above our heads
In dark silhouette against the failing light;
I noticed how short of breath you were
As we stopped to ponder the patterning
Upon the walk beneath us:
The outlines of leaves
Inked in autumn’s blood
A burial shroud for summer.
I was walking over the stains of the previous year
That cold spring day I heard the news

People began to stop in their tracks, slowly turning their heads and staring at the strange boy in his scruffy coat playing the too-expensive looking violin. His fingers danced across the strings and the bow weaved through the air and slid across the strings. The music was so rich and strong and beautiful that some of the onlookers almost thought that they could see the notes fly through the air.
Little children came forward through the crowd, swirling around the adults' feet, twisting the women's skirts and accidentally kicking dirt onto the men's shoes. The musician smiled softly at them and winked with his bright green eyes to one of the children. The girl giggled.
