Ode to Sarah KerriganOde to Sarah KerriganOde to Sarah Kerrigan9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I met a snarky ghost
who was prettier than most
her name was Sarah Kerrigan
and no one else came close
She could make herself invisible
and hide from prying foes
she'd spy on them for hours on end
how my love for her did grow
But one day fate swept down on her
and said her time was near
I cursed and howled and threw a fit
'Not a chance!' I yelled for all to hear
Oh Sarah, why'd it happen
Sarah, why'd you go
Sarah, how I loved you
but I never told you so
I put her in a dropship
in the corner of the map
to protect her and to keep her safe
from enemy attack
The zerg rushed hard
they came en mass
foul, smelly, ugly beasts
all pawing for her ass
But my defenses stood their ground
all through the day and night
battle after bloody battle
a grueling, gory fight
Finally the violence stopped
and victory was neigh
the mighty zerg had lost this time
with Sarah safely in the sky
But what was this?!
A voice cried out
'Help me, help me, someone, PLEASE!' Sa

Imagine a rat.
A cute, furry, pet rat.
Now, that rat is picked up.
It sits for a minute...
But that rat will eventually want out.
The rat squirms
the rat wiggles
the rat tries to bite
but the hand holds it there still.
Unable to move, it gives up.
Then, the other hand raises to pet the rat.
the rat is happy.
The rat is no longer scared.
the rat feels at home.
the rat couldn't be more at peace.
Now, who is that rat?
...that rat is you.
...that rat is me.
Who's hands are holding the rodent?
...those hands are God's.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
My self-esteem will drop and fall.
You must be lying, surely you jest,
For how is it I dont look my best?
I stand here, looking, every day,
Why is it I cant look away?
You point out every fault and flaw,
Pick until my heart is raw.
Censure me, show me contorted,
Visions of me, my views distorted.
You tear at me until I bleed,
You sink your teeth in and start to feed.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Whos the fairest of them all?
No-one as far as Im concerned,
Beauty is never truly earned.
Mirror, mirror, in my hand,
Whos the fairest in the land?
Dont know, although it isnt you,
Why dont you ask me something new?
A mirror will be your best friend,
With you til the very end.
It tells the truth, no sugared coat,
It makes you want to slit your throat.
The things it tells you cant be fake,
Although theyve caused you much heartache.
Mirrors are your enemy,

And my womb will not carry lives
A growing seed will never make my belly swell
So my body continues to cry bloody tears
The hips of mine are round for nothing
My soft face and my curves tell lies
Because they tell us that I am a woman
When I am a sexless worthless fool
So my heart is filled with guilt

"But why not? You do realize that you brought this up, right?" Jesus asked, dragging the question.
David looked at the ground and frowned. It was very idiotic to bring up to Jesus that he did not trust Him...now Jesus was "making" him do a trust fall.
"Jesus, You do know that this is not useful at all...right?" David asked.
"How do you know that?" Jesus asked, smirking.
David sighed and turned around.
"Jesus, that's the thing...I didn't know that you were going to do this...You know that I hate trust falls, the person behind me always drops me. Even after they catch me, they just drop my head after my fall. Remember how I had to go to the hospital because of this stupid stunt?"
Jesus did not seem moved by David's almost convincing arguement.
"Do you want to trust Me or not?" Jesus asked, stretching His arms out.
David sighed frustratedly and turned back around, crossing his arms again.
"How do I know that You won't drop me
My Box of SecretsMy Box of Secrets10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everytime I get my hopes up
They are shot down with a bleeding bullet
So I sit behind a locked door
In hopes that someone will find the key
I wish to tell you everything
And for you to just hold me while I cry
But I am afraid
Afraid that you will leave me alone again
Im afraid that you will walk out of that room
Pretending you never knew it existed
that's how it always happens
No one knows what to say, So they walk away
I want to believe you'll stay with me
Too many times Ive swept up the shards
So when you find the key that will give my release
Be prepared for what you'll uncover
Ill be sitting there, waiting
With my box of secrets resting in my lap
Just dont open it unless you're ready
I don't want to be let down again

Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't give a f***.

Running out of words
Cant express my thoughts
So much emotion
Losing my mind
Trying to find solid ground
Paper is so blank
Ink is so full
I cant think
No feeling left inside
Dont stop moving your hand
Let it out
Tell the world how it is
No holding back
Theres no way out
Everything is crashing down
Faster, harder than an avalanche
Clouded thoughts filling my head
Poison to my heart
Bleed it out
Hidden box of secrets
Swallowing me whole
Swept by a toxic lust
Im not your pretty prize
Excuse me while I break this pen on my wrist..

Breathe in, breathe out
Don't be afraid to scream
Don't be afraid to shout
If you dare to dream
Then don't you ever doubt
Don't you ever doubt
When your world is turned on its head
Be strong, young one
For your journey has just begun
If you give in to fear and dread
Then you let your enemies win
Don't let them get in
Don't go easy, don't settle for less
Because if you know what's best
You'd take the path of most resistance
You have to fight fire with fire
You gotta take a chance
Take a risk or two, lay it out on a wire
If you just go through the motions
Then you're not truly alive
If you want to survive
Then you need to swim
Swim against the current, let your heart be your guide
When you reach your destination
You'll look back at your trials and tribulations
Don't be afraid to smile, you made it through
You're a fighter, tried and true
Life has many hurdles and obstacles
But at last you know now that nothing is ever impossible

-Who is this girl staring at me?
-Her eyes are painted blacker than the darkest night's sky
-Her long black hair falls gently over her face, hiding her eyes
-She looks sad..
-Her make-up smears as silent tears fall from her eyes and down her pale cheeks
-Why is she so sad?
-Her white gown is stained of a deep crimson
-Perhaps she is hurt.. Should I help? How?
-She is afraid.. What are you afraid of little girl?
-Why are you hiding behind this cold wall of glass?
-Take my hand, you're so close, yet I can't reach you..
-A small pool of red liquid is forming around her feet now..
-I really think we should help her
-Please, little girl, take my hand, know that you're not alone! I want to help you..
-She has a dark look in her eyes now... it's as if she is staring right into my soul..
-I feel a shot of ice cold sadness run through my body
-Why are you staring at me so? I don't understand..
-It's getting so dark and cold.. my body feels numb..

Alone With 50 CatsShe lives alone in a creaky old houseAlone With 50 Cats2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No one around but those darn cats
Too many of them
A circus full of chaos
All because she missed out on life
Because she didn't want to get married
Look at her throwing her life away
To take care of the cats
That have taken over her home
She must be so lonely
Doesn't she ever get tired of talking to them
How could she have wanted this
What did she do to deserve this
Surely something must have gone wrong
For her to end up in such misery
Alone, with no one but her 50 cats
