The Star Dragons First KissAt night I flew back home to earth missing my home as I stared down at normal people instead of them being creatures from another world like dragons, ghouls, and other creatures I have witnessed. I am staring at the home of the human world my real home.
"Ah...it's good to be home again!" I said as I viewed a city I have never seen before. "Hmm wonder where I am at?" I flew back down and landed in some empty ally and turned back as a human so no one would go crazy seeing a dragon that would get anyone all riled up. As I walked around I found an old newspaper blown from the wind as I picked it up and read to see where I am and as I read it said San Diego.
"Oh wow I am in San Diego California!" I was excited as I looked around the city and mountainous area. "Wow I sure wish to live here this place feels very nice." I smiled.
As I walked down I saw a girl running scared and being chased by three men and those men didn't look friendly. "Can I ever get a break...for once?" I rolled my eyes a

shiver and drop to the ground
As my whispers resound
Echoing over a clichéd fortress of solitude,
Of my own interlude
Mirrors and glaciers, to shade me from your warmth
Your forsaken light, your waytoomuch
Of degrees and brightness I'm unaccustomed to
Of elegance and coldness I'm grown fond of, for you
And Your opposite, your pre-requisite
Of new life where my own dies
Of locked doors where my own surroundings lie
Not at all. Simply lacking the colour-tainted
Honesty, That yours so sorely lacks
For give me an overcast silence and I'll show you where my true personality stands
For I govern over your loudness by
H u s h .
Did you catch that sound?
That echoing fall as your own hit the ground.
I am cold, I am indifference, I am all you hold against your very own fate
I am the one who you'll no longer see as you go against me to stand your day.
Oh hush, l
Men Who Hate WomenThey wear their bones upon their sleevesMen Who Hate Women3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And each one crackles with a touch and
Spreads her soft insides upon the table like
A butcher spreading jam (unsuited to the task,
Yet artful still), and sheds a perfumed powder
Of discarded exoskeleton.
They are beautiful this way, each painted specimen,
And I retain their wings upon my wall for days:
Opera cloaks, fur coats, and old refurbished jackets
Purchased from the Emmaus down the street.
Sometimes I say to them, I am Bluebeard and
This chamber is the moonI have pinned you
Through the thorax to its paper claws.
Yet still they writhe, forgetting that the moon is sterile;
That the bats catch moths in silence on the lunar steppes.

I am the girl wanting to fit in,
Who doesn't want to be bullied everyday she goes to school.
The girl others call weird for no reason,
The girl people speak to as if she is retarded.
I am the girl with few friends,
Because I have been betrayed by others,
So therefore doesn't want to risk being betrayed and hurt again.
They called me names I now ignore,
But still try to steal my things to get a reaction from me,
I can't take it so I go to the one place I know I'm safe from them.
When school ends they follow me back,
Making me paranoid.
I know I cannot run,
So I stop in place until they walk in front of me.
I am the girl who likes strange things,
The things being the only thing to get me through the day.
Yet these things most people don't know.
When I get home and am asked how school was,
I shrug and just say ok.
I go to the computer for hours writing to get away from life.
When I finally get off and go to bed,
The voices in my head never stop,
Telling me how worthless and usel

"Well," Hoodie looked at Masky. "He's your friend. What do we do with him?"
"I don't know. We can't kill him."
"Why?" Hoodie asked, confused."
"I don't really know. I just feel like we shouldn't." Masky crouched down and shook Jay a bit. Hoodie gave a small smile. Masky was in control, but Tim had that slight influence over him. Masky lifted Jay over his shoulder. "Come on. Let's find a place to drop him off."
"Alright." The two walked through the forest. Hoodie laughed at Jay, who looked like a ragdoll over Masky's shoulder. They walked for a good mile before finding a small building.
"Here." Masky walked into the building and placed Jay down.
"What?" Masky looked out.
"Look what I found!" Hoodie lifted up Masky's mask. Masky smiled and ran over.
"Thanks!" Masky slipped his mask on. "That's much better." The two stared at Jay again. Hoodie growled.
"I hate him so much."

It started several years ago, one day, me having been invited to sit with some guys[we geeks always find each other] and you walked up and kissed me on the cheek. It was odd, surprising, and left me blushing. We hit it off, maybe just because I'm the new guy. A little ways down the line, and your friend asks me to the dance on your behalf. I say yeah. We go, have fun, and go back to my mother and her husband's place[I was 17, big deal]. Time marches on, and I get kicked out of my mother's place shortly after turning 18. Oh well, huh? I stay elsewhere for the remainder of the school year, you and I still meeting up and hanging out whenever we could. Two little lovebirds we were.
Things get nasty at your home, your mother threatening to kill you and I [maybe crazy really does run in the family], and you wind up moving in wi
A Discourse on Fear, Motivation, and Harry Potter Almost every kid and teen, and even adult, in the United States and the United Kindom, if not the entire world, has read, or at least heard of, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. While there is ongoing discussion on the morality, possibility, etc. of magic, it cannot be denied that these books have topped the best-sellers lists multiple times. They speak to people because they are something we all can relate to, even if only in our imagination. They are interwoven with positive messages, paradoxically hidden and obvious, that can be applied to real-world situations, behaviors, and emotions.A Discourse on Fear, Motivation, and Harry Potter2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
One of these most prominant messanges can be found in the third of the seven-book series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban. In this installment, Rowling introduces creatures, or more accurately monsters, called dementors. These being feed off of happiness and optimism, leaving one with only his or her worst memories and feelings:
