A Life Of Shame?What gives you the right to judge?A Life Of Shame?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What gives you the right to stare?
What gives you the right to hate us?
What gives you that damn right?
She's my wife
She's my love forever
I just want to hold her hand
I just want to kiss her
Without the staring
Call us names
Give it all you got
But this is not my life of shame
This is my life filled with joy
Filled with tyhe love of my life
Filled with everything I ever wanted
So this is NOT my life of shame
I will not be ashamed of m wife
So you can judge all you want
But I won't be ashamed for my feelings
Because I like who I am today
So tell me
Who are you to judge what's right?
To judge us in general
Or are you just afraid of something you don't know
Or perhaps even jealous of something you miss?
This is not my life of shame
Lesbians are also human
And we will not be ashamed of our feelings
So who are you to judge us?
Fear the Dragon CallA storm of lighting breaks the sky as the dragons begin to stir and wakeFear the Dragon Call4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their roar will thunder across the mountains as the very earth will shake
These ancient beasts of might and magic, are fury and strength personified!
How many of you will remember the days when we were told to hide?
Our mothers would wrap us in special blankets and calm us down with song
We would cower in holes like tiny rats whilst our parents acted strong
The Dragon would burn our homes away and all would turn to dust and ash
Our entire lives would be swallowed up! In a single crimson flash...
It used to be a time of darkness, where a man would live in constant fear
Yet we have found a special way, to protect the lives that we hold dear
My friends I must now present to you the warriors of the Chosen Eight
A group of our honoured champions, who will slay the beasts we hate!
Now they ride for the Volcanic Wastes where the Dragon call has sounded!
Before the beast can stand its ground they will have it fully surrou
Sweet SerenityI have searched the very depths of my being,Sweet Serenity2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Seeking the essence of the void...
To understand its nature,
To become a part of nothing...
For where else can we be free of turmoil,
Where else can a beaten soul go to rest?
If not in the comforting embrace of eternal oblivion?
Such is what I seek, away from the noise that burns at my ears.
Away from the many voices that drill into my mind.
For these are not the whispers of psychosis,
Nor the delusions of a twisted psyche.
Instead they are the whispers that are heard all around us;
The whispers of the every-man.
He who desires the body of another.
He who desires the fat of his wallet.
He who cares only for self-satisfaction
And He who wishes to stand above all.
Voices, voices, noisy voices...
Eternally spitting their foul words into me.
Even in the realm of fantasy I can no longer escape!
For they are here, and I read their words scrawled across th
Monsoon [three] Jack Frost and Pitch BlackMonsoon [three] Jack Frost and Pitch Black3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
His lips were fire against Jack’s icy nape—a groan escaped the boy’s freed lips, giving Pitch enough fire to continue back up to the Winter’s jaw. His hands felt like molten lava against Jack’s bare stomach, leaving red, hot trails of desire whatever and wherever they felt like conquering.
Jack groaned softly as Pitch’s tongue slid back against his own—Jack didn’t fight; he didn’t feel the need to. Pitch grinned against Jack’s lips, his hands clutching at the fabric of Jack’s tattered sweatshirt as he once more claimed the Winter’s lips with bruising force. Pitch’s grey skinned arms reached around Jack’s waist and clutched him to his chest tightly.
Jack wrapped his arms around Pitch’s neck, panting softly as he planted one, two, three softer kisses on the older man’s lips before pulling away ever so slowly. Pitch almost felt rejected before realizing th
DesperationI wonder how many days you've spent feeling lost.Desperation2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Thinking that you're going somewhere.
Never actually getting anywhere.
You look at the same four walls over and over again.
You can paint them in different colours,
But you know they're still the same.
And you convince yourself that you're making progress,
Nothing's changed, but you're making progress.
Things are getting worse, but you're making progress.
And then you wake up and realise,
That shit has hit the fan...
Suddenly you're forced to do the things you couldn't,
The kind of things that you were never comfortable with.
And you find out you can do them.
You find out that the only reason you couldn't,
Was because you were afraid to try.
It's hard - trying to take that first step.
It's hard - trying to convince yourself to take that chance.
A Thin Thread...A Thin Thread...4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"There's a thin line between love and hate".
I don't often listen to the ramblings of humans. Their fragile, arrogant lives hold little meaning for me; they are not worth extinguishing for life does it soon enough in the end. However, those words could not be closer to the truth. Hate is easy to feel; this world is a diseased place, ugly, selfish creatures hiding under false physical beauty and carefully constructed smiles. It's repulsive, watching them flaunt their pretty little lies while others fall headlong into the web of deceit. Yet it takes so little to unravel those thin intricate threads...a simple cut here, a warning slash there. Then the mask falls, and reveals the truth.
And what of love? I know nothing of this emotion. After my father got himself killed and my mother showed her true face and abandoned the clan, I saw what this world truly is. The clan didn't blame me; they didn't accept me either. I was alone, can't admit I felt lonely. I didn't want their sympathies anyho

A hot, burning desire
Insatiable yearning for the body
Unable to be controlled
That big green monstrosity
Wanting everything and needing nothing
Wishing for all he can't have
Consuming mountains of gold
Indulging on all she gets her hands on
One simple goal, everything
Laziness become her life
Reality is imagination
Her life is spent in a dream
Fiery anger that spreads
Willing to kill all that stands in her way
Blood spills and not an eye bats
Having all and sharing none
Work all for the self and never giving
Unworthy of all he has
Pride and Vanity consumes
While his life is spent away from the crowd
He sits in beauty, alone

Because what you don't like is
simply what you don't understand.
Instead tell me what you do like.

Tearing me up inside
I can't let it out though
For fear of harming someone I love
I wish to be free from this anger
Can you help me?
Save my soul
From this burning fury
Sometimes it's too much too handle…
And I need to let it out
Help me be able to love
So I might learn to let go
For I fear this rage might consume me
Help before it takes over
One word is all I need from you, one word is all it takes
One word of reassurance
Just to know you'll be there
When I need you
I'll try not to hurt you
With this anger of mine
It's unpredictable, I can't control it
But if you help me, I can try…

I stepped inside the flame!
Hoping to be forgiven for what I became!
Have I no shame?
Have I no guilt?
There's no such thing as blame
For all of the wrongs I've been dealt
Point the finger
Only at the world
Watch you band together
And witness you antagonize another
Wrapped inside of society's shadows
And little did they know
They were only born to be scapegoats
That's the harsh way to say it
It's only because the truth is filled with hatred
Bystanders just turn a blind eye
As they feed their relief with made up lies
That's all they know how to do
They're too afraid of being dragged down with you
They know what's right
But it's clouded by discriminative eyes
We're only given the gift of a last glance
A half a second of pity slips through our hands
It's all we will get

Without the IndividualWithout the IndividualWithout the Individual2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can you imagine a world, directed by a single mind?
A collective conscious, a living hive.
Each time we are born, we receive a part of it
And when we return, we share in the pool.
There would be no fear of death;
No fear of the unknown…
For a thousand souls would bolster our hearts.
We could live—truly LIVE—to the fullest extent of our capabilities.
And when we succeed?
That success returns to the hive…
That success can be shared across the next generation.
We would become an ever-evolving organism.
One with a thousand faces, but a single driving purpose.
Can you even imagine how that would feel?
But…I suppose that you can’t.
For you, as with all humans, share in a single flaw:
The nature of the individual, the ego of the singular man.
Existing in a void of his own thoughts—he has no point of reference.
He is alone, even if surrounded by other humans,
For he shall never share in their minds…

This hollow pain in my heart won't die.
I hide the agony I feel deep within my soul.
I am heartbroken, my soul is broken and bruised.
Everyday passes in a blur, my heart sinks, and I die a little more.
Scars cover my wrists, mind and soul
I've bled for you, shed tears for you but you still don't want me.
You used me, you made me cry, broke my heart, and now I want to die.
My heart can no longer endure any more sorrow, or pain.
I am overwhelmed by guilt and shame for my past mistakes.
All that is left of me, is an empty, broken shell.
Incapable to love, to live; dead inside.
I am numb, my heart is broken by all that I have endured through the years.
Please come and save my soul, heal my heart and make me whole.
I am nothing without you.
You complete me, my love; my soul is yours forever.

Another achievement is plastered on the walls of the city. A smiling face here, a wicked grin there, teary eyes holding an embarrassed expression. Snap shots of these praised students are pasted next to their name and their teacher's.
Each student a tired example of friendliness. Each teacher basking in the glow of their work. Popularity and pride heated into a delicious caramel, sweet and bitter, coats his lips and burns his insides. It's so tempting, and yet he finds himself sickened by the taste, delicious to some and vile to others.
"Is that... What I have to do?"
Faces of those he'd said merely two words to the other day now appear as royalty on a proper listing on the city's electronic bulletin board. Those standing below hold their heads high, seeing the names scroll from one to the next, each student a king in his own right.

"Only one way to find out, hm?" His eyes focus on the bubbling simmering mixture contained safely in a glass beaker. The violet syrup rapidly boils once the glass touches the hot plate. Slowly the tongs are removed, the warm container absorbing the heat to keep the mixture in constant stimulation.
"I'm sure it will work this time." With a pair of goggles over his face, the sly smile holds true confidence behind his words. However, the scientist beside him, still focused on the beaker, fails to share the same sentiment.

Class was the next day. I mostly came to this college because of the soccer program they had, I think that is why the other guys came here too. When I asked Heracles, he said he came for the history classes. "The history classes here are so... cool," he told me.
His voice was such a soothing tone; I always found you could calm down when talking to him, no matter your mood.
Mei was more into the 'wife courses,' as Gilbert liked to put it. She was a pretty good cook, and she could make a dress easily if she wanted to. I found out later we were completely different from each other, like she hated soccer! I got along with her, but we didn't really share any of the same interests. She would also ask me weird questions.

A hug is a wonderful gift to share,
A way to show each other that we care;
There is so much a hug is able to do,
When you feel those arms holding you.
A hug is a place to feel safe and warm,
A comfort for a sad heart that is torn;
An expression of the love in our heart,
For ones who we wish, never to be apart.
A hug is a greeting when we meet to say hello,
Or to say goodbye when we have to go;
It can hold us up when life gets us down,
And makes us smile, instead of frown.
A hug can be given for no reason at all,
And given to those, both big and small;
We're never too old to feel the joy it brings,
As it is one of life's most pleasing things.
And for all of this beauty, a hug is free!
It costs nothing, yet means so much to me;
We should all hug another to show we care,
For to feel a warm hug, nothing can compare.
Here's Your Hug from ME to YOU
All for just one reason and that is…
A good day to you!

The night breeze was cool on your face, banishing away the humidity for a mere moment. Not that you minded the humidity. It was something you grew up with so you barely noticed it anymore.
