Thank YouPlease, stop running from me.Thank You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Please, you're scaring me.
I know were playing, but please.
You run to fast and I can't keep up.
I'll reach out but you run faster.
You start laughing and as if on cue the colorful leaves fall.
I smile, your laughter is sweet and I wish I heard more.
This is it.
I'm going to catch you.
You're going to be mine.
I pick up speed and run off the sidewalk and around you.
Almost at light speed.
You don't even notice.
I smile now is my chance.
Your mine now.
I hope back on the side walk and open my arms.
A huge ass grin on my face.
Your eyes open you see me.
You stop laughing and your eyes grow wide.
Not in fear, no, but in shock.
I keep the grin and you don't stop running.
You run in my arms.
I close them and hold on to you.
Tight but not to tight to suffocate.
Firm but soft.
I start laughing and so do you.
I pick you up and spin you around.
A still hold on but stop spinning. I put you down.
On your tippy toes you whisper in my ear "I love you."

She is all I needBeast Boy slowly walked from the shower to his bedroom. He ran his hand through his wet hair as he pondered about his morning. The Titans were awoken early that morning with a distress call. The Hive Five were causing havoc in Town Square. Most of the fight was a blur for him, except when Mammoth threw a bench towards his head. That's when she had appeared. She was right there the whole time but he had forgotten for brief second that he wasn't battling alone. A black force engulfed the bench sending it straight back towards Mammoth. He caught himself staring at her exquisiteness. She looked towards him and eying his look asked if he was hurt. His mouth instantly dried like a desert and a soft cough came out instead of words. He shook his head and smiled. It was little things like that made him so crazy about her. He thought about the times when Robin would be blaming or accusing him, and there she was sticking up for him. She always knew when he was having a bad day or was lonely, andShe is all I need3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This

Dashing through the streets
In search of rubber-duck
All the stores sold out
And Flash is out of luck
The last one in the world
Gets mangled in a fight
Crashed into tiny pieces
By the Ultra-Humanite.
Jingle bells, Wally fails
Ducky goes bye bye
Big bad monkey kills the Ducky
And makes the orphans cry
Jingle bells, back to jail
No more breaking toys
Guess they'd settle for Nutcracker
Instead of poopy noise.
Christmas with the Kents
In their lovely Smallville farm
Super-mom and dad
Await with open arms
The boy scout's full of cheer
But J'onn's all doom and gloom
They hole him up in Kara's happy
Pukey girly room.
Jingle bells, Jingle bells
What a tragic day
Oh how wonderful is sulking
And scaring cats away (yay)
Jingle bells, Martian wails
Presents wrapped in lead
Next year J'onn would rather run off
And kill himself instead.
Crashing through the walls
In a dodgy alien bar
Hawkgirl's choice of fun
Disturbing and bizarre
Shayera's on the loose
Her eyes are

If you were to see it, it would grab your attention.
It is a dangerous, horrible, forbidding place.
Thankfully it's far away, in extremely deep space.
The awful planet is called Apokolips.
Avoid it. Don't seek it. Those are my tips.
A dark evil monster here sits on the throne.
He is very powerful and so feared he's left alone.
The dark evil monster's name is Darkseid.
To destroy Kal-el, many times he has tried.
Approaching his throne is his minion Desaad.
He hopes that his scheme his master will applaud.
He noted that his master seemed extra angry and melancholy.
He'd have to be careful, to anger him more would be a great folly.
Desaad asked, "Great master what is the matter?"
Darkseid hissed, "It's Kal-el. I want his head on a platter!"
Desaad smiled, "I know of how to hurt him worse than taking his life.
You could destroy Kal-el forever if you took his wife."
Darkseid knew that here he had many pretties.
But Kal-el's wife had even nicer

believe in 'forever'.
maybe i believe that things
change and people grow
and that good things can
only be good for so long
before they turn bad
or at least get boring.
maybe i find it hard to
believe that love can last
and that the world is inherently
good and two people really
can feel the exact same way
for one another for years and
years and never start to tire
of their bad habits or old
jokes or mannerisms.
maybe the idea that one
person can be someone's
everything confuses the hell
out of me because no one
has ever been mine and i
have never been no one's.
What is it worth?What is it worth?What is it worth?6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To accomplish enough to place myself among giants
And stretch higher than them?
To receive a love that banishes all sadness
And turns each tear to a diamond?
To be admired enough to ignite with pride
That out-burns the sun?
Or, to turn it around:
What is it worth to believe that I am worthy
Of what I desire? Of who I am now?
More than I know, it seems.

Looking through timidly blinking eyes,
Breathing a sigh like a biting wind
As my heart explodes into beating life.
Never have I felt so unprotected,
Never an ordinary sky so bright
Though I embrace a new beginning
To dispel the cold and shame of the night.

We are in communion
A lucid fusion
Heroin is movin
Through your veins
Your neglected sense of change
Only touching what is
Within your range
When you should be exclusively walking
In this day and age
His fury is locked in it's cage
And his soul is waiting on that freedom day
When we find that we are one in the same
Forgivin the blame
Removal of shame
Flippin upside down to learn your own

Lord, what does the Devil think?
Does he think that we, us mortals on earth, are just pieces of a giant chess game?
Does he think that I am just a pawn to be lost to you?
Or does he think more of us?
Lord, how does the Devil act?
Does he act like an arrogant prince about to take the throne?
Does he act like he deserves to be respected and looked up to by all?
Or is he kind and deceiving?
Lord, what does the Devil look like?
Does he wear all black to show that he is the mirror image of your angles in white?
Does he wear bright colors to grab the attention of sinners?
Or does he dress like us so that he can blend in and stress our minds to do the wrong thing?
Lord, how do we recognize the Devil?
How do we, your servants, see past his clever tricks?
How do we keep ourselves away from his path and stay on yours?
Lord, how do we recognize you?

that lovers consigned to hell
must be cut in half and then
surgically attached again,
flesh to flesh,
and in that state will know
what it really means to
never be apart,
tearing and screaming
at each other forever
in vain, to be free again.

FallingThat same dream again...Falling6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My face was turned to the sky as I fell,
With a cliffside retreating from my sight
And the ocean looming miles below.
But this one time I thought
I saw someone standing above me,
And I thrust up a hand as I descended
In the first true display of hope.

A wonder such as you.
I see twin moons in your eyes,
lidded by milky layers of cloud,
and ink-black down in your brows.
You are a dream painted on fancies
beyond my comprehension,
a symphony of light and laughter.
No woman's form could describe
the elements that were woven together
to make you; no waves on the ocean
could be as graceful, and no thunderclap
could compel me like your voice.
The blessing of the angels would not be
more welcome than yours, and their presence
could not be more sacred.
I would be content to die in your presence,
If only you would grace me with your touch at the end.
UnloveableWhat is it that makes you hollow?Unloveable6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A staring statue with faded eyes
Standing behind a wall built of crumbling
Dreams, and hopes you never dared to have.
They swore they did it for your own good
As they constructed that wall, brick by brick,
And from that point the laughter you heard
Was far away, and drowned your own sobs.
You're not worthy of being heard, you think.
Even if it's not true, it's easier that way.
It's not that the universe is so very unfair,
It's that you're so damn unloveable,

And he gives thanks for each drop of blood
That falls from his lips when he steals a kiss.
He chases her like a spring wind in scorching heat
And only laughs as she stirs his hair and spins away,
Teasing him with the indifferent blessing of her breath.
He seeks to drown himself even when the water
Rejects him for a fool and a causeless martyr,
Because even suffering is sweet when she gives it.

Does it hurt to open your eyes?
Is your body shaking and your heart aching?
Are you crying there as you think about your life?
I'm so sorry that you've got to carry this
Because it wont be an easy load

And eventually learn to let it go

And your beautiful mind
I guess the buttons have begun to fade
From pressing rewind so many times

Without your persistance of existance
Coursing through my veins
And now again I feel as though I've gained
A reason to live
And a reason to carry on and grow strong
Now again I feel as if my heart has been resealed
As my mind desires to be healed
I thirst for Youth
And I feel that if I am not living to the fullest
I will be letting myself down
So I wish to embrace my vision
With a new and courageous ambition
Because I know I can puill myself up from the floor
To find meaning and keep on believing
Let love taste as rich as before

Plastered into the golden sand
Every moment; cherished
Toss your words into the ocean
Only to have the waves bring them back
It's vast isn't it?
You just have to stop for a minute
Let the warm breeze caress your face
As the rip curl sends sounds of soothing sighs
Find release from within
Island; so secluded yet so liberating
So much beauty
The danger in the water
Open, endless ocean
And still it calls my name
To be carried away
I am not afraid

As windswept ghusts carry me away
From the old and past news of my yesterdays
Rain gets sucked into the ground
As gravity pulls each droplet down
And steals the life right out of this town
Cold crisp air that tastes like snow
And wont let go of my numbers; no
The ground will freeze as we continue to grow
Pull the stars out of the sky
The cleared out space of your dreams that die
Nothing left but darkness and street lights

'Cause I can swear that I still love you
And I know how much I need you
In my life
Every time I falter
I fall right into your arms
You always catch me when I'm broken
And make everything alright
I could never try to change you
Or even begin to ask
Everything that you are
Are the things in me I can't get back
No matter what I'm facing
You're always by my side
Even if it takes forever
I know you'll stay with me all through the night
When my heart has been shattered
I always seek you out
'Cause you've always been willing
To figure this whole thing out
