sat underneath a shade
where the leaves didn't shake
and the flowers just didn't like the pressure
of the sun- it's making them feel like being baked in an oven
He looks up into the sky
and I can see Heaven crystal clear in His eyes
a lady bug crawled up His arm
and boy it felt warmer than warm
I felt the heat crawling up my cheeks
He gave a sideways look and inched a little closer to me
I tried to look the other way
and God, I tell you, I tried
He gave me a little shy smile and asked
What's on my mind
I shrugged and said
something the world said to me
made me feel a little smaller than I am
He didn't say a thing till I was done
His arms around me was warm as the sun
His voice erupted like a symphony in a concert hall
which really made me want to sway
the weight of it all
I tried to sustain and yet sanity did maintain me...
the glorious lips did part and said
"What did the world say?"
The world wants me Lord, to be the one who makes lots of money

Fiyero opened the door at the sound of Elphaba's voice. He had never actually set foot inside the dorm room before – when he came to pick Galinda up for a date, she'd usually hurry to the door to meet him. He couldn't help smiling to himself. What secrets would he learn about her? Was she messy? Did she have embarrassing pictures on her walls?
There was nothing messy at all about the room, however. Galinda's side was neat, her extensive wardrobe lined up neatly in her closet, her shoes perfectly straight, and her pink, frilly bed made. Elphaba's side appeared even neater, but that was only because there wasn't much there – besides the book-lined shelves, she only had a few simple dresses.
Elphaba was sitting on her bed, absorbed in a book. She looked especially green in the lamp from her bedside table, and she didn't even honor him with a look to see who he was. "Galinda's not
Dark FeelingsI can’t stop myself from having themDark Feelings3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even when I try to push them out of my mind
They creep into my heart
They corrupt it
I always think, it’s not right to feel this way
Sometimes when they’re strong
They leak out of my eyes
But they always come back
These dark feelings will never leave.

Good MorningGood Morning.Good Morning3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I have a distressing tendency of waking up too early.
The sun escaping from the blinds always begins to stir me.
Just as I begin to behave sullen and surly, her presence averts me.
I turn to my side to see the vein in her left arm pump overtly.
She's completely immersed by the covers.
I have to resist temptation not to hold and hug her.
Her body suddenly moves with a spontaneous shudder.
Her mouth moves but not a word or sound does she utter.
I stare at her intently and push her stray hairs behind her ear.
Realising that loosing this woman will be my most dreadful fear.
Her eyes momentarily open just to make sure that I am near.
I was born alone in this world but I live my life in a pair.
She has no idea that I watch her while she sleeps.
Or that I tingle when her newly painted toes brush against my feet.
I often think what my life would be like if me and her didn't meet.
Would she even look twice if we crossed paths in the street.
Her hands move against the pillow as if
Free WillFree Will.Free Will3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Is free will a devout gift or a curse?
Was it free will that granted a desperate man to steal an old lady's purse?
Was it free will that resulted in multiple bodies carried in a hearse?
Was it free will that justified a police officer to shoot the accused first?
Was it free will that allowed a family man's mentality to be so perverse?
Could this world of ours get any worse?
Free will gives us the chance for all of us to be distinctive.
But as a consequence people can act corruptive and vindictive.
But without this choice, our lives would be constrained and restrictive.
Undoubtedly these two differing perspectives are contrasting and conflictive.
Without free will our actions and thoughts would be controlled and predictive.
But with this gift our proceedings maybe considered as harmful and afflictive.
Of course free will does has have it's varied betterments.
This advantage allows us to direct and assert our developing intelligence.

If we break promises then why do we promise in the first place?
If hate is bad why do we carry it within ourselves?
If change is good why do we cling to the past?
If revenge is pointless why do we seek to carry it out?
If life is unfair why do we seek to change it?
If humans are smart then why do we fight?
If people die then why do we seek friends?
If what goes around comes around why do some people never get their retribution?
If people fight why do we seek peace?
When all is lost why do we so desperately cling to hope?
If we care why do we ignore the people that need us most?
If life is precious then why do people kill?
If love is always there why do some never feel it?
A darkness in herDear boy, it seems that you're falling,A darkness in her3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Falling for a girl with dark eyes, dark hair
And though she tries to hide it , deny it,
She has a dark soul
She will never admit it, but you shine a light
On the darkness that she keeps locked away
Hey fear, anger and sadness are masked by a smile
And a carefree laugh
We all have a darkness, you might say
But is it not shameful to have
A place inside you consumed by fear, desperation, lust,
Love, and greed?
She cries now, crying because she thinks you're falling for her
And she will break you, intentionally, into shards of child-like love
Because there's only so far a heart can stretch
And 7,657 miles is probably too far
She hopes that you can stay strong, but at the same time
She hopes that you are feeling the same dark desire
To never see her leave
Like she will
Boy, if you are falling
Don't look into her eyes
Because those dark eyes will absorb you
Into a universe of love

That's somebody's mother.
Who was beaten and raped by another
Individual who couldn't control their seedy sexual desires.
Just because you can't smell the stench of burning skin.
Doesn't mean this world isn't intrinsically on fire.
That's somebody's daughter.
Who was kidnapped, molested and tortured.
By another who couldn't control their dishevelled cravings.
Super heros do not exist in this reality.
Does that mean this world is not worth saving?
That's somebody's father.
Who was shot by another individual who would rather
Resort to violence to settle a trivial dispute.
The things humans can do to each other.
No one can deny this world is not filled with ill repute.
That's somebody's son.
Who was a victim of a hit and run
Situation that should never had occurred.
His family are now seeking solace from a church.
But can anyone really say that in the end
We all get what we deserve?

Never so all-consuming… Not such a worry.
I never used to care about you; not a sliver of emotion was attached to your essence.
At least… that’s what I told myself.
I actually hated you. But; I also loved you.
I love you. .. But that’s not the point, or perhaps it is;
Because maybe that’s why I think of you so much now,
Because maybe I don’t hate you as much as I used to…and maybe I love you more?
No. Not possible. My love has always been unconditional.
…even when you damaged it so badly… And I thought I would love no more,
Trust no more. Smile no more…
But I still love you, and I still can love others.
Though I don’t trust you, never will I trust you again.
And my trust of others takes many times my original effort to create, let alone keep.
And I will never again smile for you.
No, you will only receive the fo

Unbeknownst to us all, I was lost. He loved me and I froze in time.
Hungry for that flesh of mine.
I stayed. Always faithful on a physical level, but attachments did grow.
The want to please took over me, and that caused my pain. In an effort to push my feelings aside, I grew detached.
My life was a song on repeat, and I couldn’t break the habit. Then I met you. As always, I took interest. I did not try to suppress it. It was there. It flared inside me, bright and beautiful, and I was happy.
I saw what I wanted in you. I saw everything that could be, but I thought never would be.
Someone told me to get my act together. He’ll understand. If not, then he’s not worth it. This cut deep. I knew you were something, not nothing.
You were worth it.
So I changed.
I cried, let it all out, which seemed to not be much at all. Makes you wonder how long I’d been living in a loveless relationship. Not that it matters anymore.

He comes home late, surly and disorderly.
Tears streaking from his eyes because he's so morbidly
Depressed and continues to drink unlawfully.
He notices I'm awake and sits me down forcefully.
He tells me to come close as he whispers to me reassuringly.
Then he thrusts me around the room, beating me unremorsefully.
He said its my fault that mum decided to leave.
He pulls me closer as he venomously adjusts his sleeves.
He said he regrets the day I was ever conceived.
He lifts me up towards the ceiling with supreme ease.
Grasping at my throat making it difficult for me to breathe.
He intensifies his grip whilst gritting his jaundiced coloured teeth.
He loosens his hold and my body slumps to the floor.
I inhale distressingly, not knowing how much more I will have to endure.
He holds his head in his hands and stumbles towards the door.
I crawl to the side cabinet to gaze at our family picture that once he tore.
Thinking to myself could it really be true.

You are always there for me
no matter the time.
If I am able to love,
I love you, my eternal valentine.
Black, strong body, perfumed,
and a bit bitter, I confess.
But your warmth and your taste,
gently, my mouth, caress.
Bolder with your warmth,
the black ink in my veins.
When I'm losing my mind,
you help me to keep sane.
I need you to keep alive,
you make me awake, you make me keen.
But even if I were mess,
I'd be a mess full of caffeine.
The planet may go stray,
and it'd be all right to me.
I forget all my concerns

This same old nightmare that I grimly fear
An image of my life haunted by your shadows
I'm frozen in place, waiting for daylight to soon appear
But I don't know if I'm ready to take on another loveless tomorrow
Why am I the one who suffers when you're not even really here?
I should not have to be the one inflicted by your falsely bestowed sorrow
You made and broke every one of those promises
You left even though you knew that you'd be greatly missed
You were not the one saying that you're so sorry
You were not the one who was left crying uncontrollably
You didn't feel your heart being ripped away
You never considered the other side of the pain
For you I completely broke down
For you I remain in countless pieces now
But I vow to never go through that again
Because I will never give my heart to someone in vain
I want you to know that this is the cost
For I am the outcome of when you throw away your love

Some of you know me--especially if you watch me and keep up with the goings on with my profile. Some of you don't. But I can assure you that I am not a mean nor malicious person.
So why is it, when I give some people constructive critique, am I pinned as:
A: a troll
B: a 'Hater'
It's an interesting concept for me to debate and discuss. And rant about.
See, I have a rule:Avoid critiquing people on a subject I haven't studied and theorized on an extensive amount...or one I wouldn't automatically welcome to receive critique about in return.
Those who dish out critique with 0% experience is just mean, and cruel. Not that I'm saying that I'm all knowing either. ESPECIALLY in the thing that I critique most often--What do I critique, you ask?
A:Written pieces (I have a group for it, too!)
B: Character bios and character creation (especially fan characters).

“Approved?”I asked. “I don’t like the shirt.”he said. “Why not?”I asked a bit hurt, because it was one of my favourite shirts. “Because it’s not mine.”he replied. “Oh, I see...”I said and walked over to his closet. Out of it I pulled one of his black shirts. I threw my black and white checked shirt onto the bed and pulled his shirt on instead. To be honest, hanging open like it did now, it was a really cool jacket.
