I'll dance in front of my television
Just to watch my silhouette
With my feet planted firmly
I'll move my arms and hands
Like distinct, ethereal entities
They'll drift around my form
A misty light creeps through blinds
And frames my shadow from behind
A tree with two branches
That swirl around its odd trunk
A tragic limitation of reflection
They disappear within its form
My focus breaking on a pixel
How can this be possible?
The shape is wretchedly abnormal
This outline can't be me

A thousand hopeful thoughts crushed in an instant,
What a fool I am to believe this time for sure it'd work,
I do not know why I put myself through this,
Time and time again with you I fall in love,
And time and time again that love is shot down,
You say you wish to not hurt me,
Do you not see the pain you cause,
All that sorrow brought on by a few simple words,
Still I hold out and hope for one more chance,
I still believe despite this we can fix this broken love,
And return to how it once was long ago.

That's one word
In one breath it can carry the world
With His hands in mine
I know God who is divine
will lead me to straight paths
Words of wisdom You carry through the birds in the morning
the breeze that cuddles me briefly as it waltzes by
O Father of Heaven my soul cries
Mighty the deeds of the Father
High above high all the earth
Sing songs of sweet justice to the Father
For nothing compares to His awesomeness
Skip by the sidewalk and watch the trees sway
If you press your ears close to the ground
You can hear them sing
a song of victory
How the Lord devoured hopelessness and brought light to the world

When It Comes to Love...There are two different sides.When It Comes to Love...4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
One is the Pessimist. She thrives on doubt, self-pity and loneliness.
She always tries to convince me that giving up is my only option. She told me there was no light at the end of my tunnel.
Every once in a while, I believe her.
The other side is Optimist. She thrives on positivity and every scrap of hope I have left in my heart.
She told me that such love does indeed exist in my life.
Every year, Optimist tells me that something wonderful will happen.
I really want to put my trust and faith in the Optimist side.
But at the end of the day, I know I will be judged and ridiculed, for taking Optimist's side in front of everyone.
Because a person who doesn't know me will think I have no hope anyways.
So I show my inner Pessimist to people around me, and usually I keep my true, Optimist feelings to myself.
I look like I never want to be loved again.
But deep down I am desperately searching and asking.
What am I afraid of?

I am a woman.
On the outside,

Not who I want to be.

Thank goodness for surgery.

So I can become,

From this male prison.
And enjoy freedom,
Freedom of being female.

Trying to find a reason for his life

When at long last
You take your final bow?
Ushered into the wings
To rendezvous with the Reaper
Who will lament your fate?
Can you name anyone whose life
A heart you've warmed
A smile rescued from a frown
A child who has held your hand
On your daily rounds
In the hustle and bustle
Will the record show
That you stood for honor and integrity?
Not with mere words
Adhering to a higher standard?

A Eulogy for My Brother, Gone at 50
God came for my brother at 3 a.m. Not about 3 a.m. but
literally: Right then. It was exact, and I know because I was there.
Apparently, God and Cooper had a pre-arranged appointment to keep,
one we just couldn't find in his datebook. At first,
we were relieved that the merciless pain,
cruel beyond measure, was now in the past.
My mind drifted back and forth; my eyes sought his face, his
hands. I held his hands over and over: dead or alive, those hands
had something to tell me if I could just listen harder! His hands were

She was very sweet looking and very polite, therefore people were always giving her sweets."Such a sweet girl deserves sweets," they said and patted her on the golden-haired head, smiling at her bright-blue eyes.

Blaze groaned and his eye popped open, his pupils dilating. “Ulrich?” he rasped weakly.
I gasped and leaned down and hugged him. “Oh, you’re okay!” I exclaimed. Then, my brain clicked, and I leaned away from him. I cleared my throat awkwardly. “Uh…you’re okay.”
He got up and slowly reached his hand around to the back of his head, rubbing it. “Ow…
The Cottage on the HillThe Cottage on the Hill8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
There is a little house
on a hill aside the forest.
It's quaint, so queer,
but it is more than that.
It is like a little cottage
that should be by the sea,
but someone misplaced it one day
when playing with their toys.
Yes, this house is very childish.
It is a toy in itself.
If you enter the house,
you are a doll.
Or perhaps you are a puppet,
but either way,
strange things begin to happen,
whether you like it or not.
Sometimes the trees have knuckles
that tap on your windows
when you're trying to sip a
lukewarm cup of tea with honey.
The fireplace crackles,
but once in a while
it sings and dances
before it falls asleep.

Walking away is what you do best,
Staying is my fate,
Fingers drawing heart shapes on my chest,

Dew drop memories,
Bending light into a rainbow,
Tear drops making a puddle,
My red thoughts continue to flow,
Happy Valentines Day my Friend,
You are still in my heart,
I know you had to walk away,
From me you will never part.

Nobody was looking at the dark and gabled silhouette on the hill overlooking the town at exactly twenty-two minutes to twelve that Saturday night. It was lucky that nobody had, or more than one of the townsfolk would have added a new chapter to the peculiar ghost story that had insidiously circulated throughout the town over the decades, permeating the life of each and every inhabitant. For one brief instant, every single light in the place had flared on, crowning the whole hill with a blaze of glory.
The man with the scissors for hands had indeed discovered the electricity junction box.

When the low pressure system conspires
with my decreasingly adequate spectacle prescription
and the fact that I haven't eaten
any sufficient protein in over 24 hours,

and I spill Whiskas milk on a freshly washed mat.
I try to read Nabokov

I drink three more coffees than usual,
eat two more steaks than usual,
and every sound at the front door
