Lay me down
On a bed of thorns,
That I might suffer
For my sins.
Bring my enemies,
One by one,
So they might see
That no one wins.
Take from me
This heavy burden,
All the guilt
And all the pain.
Raise me up
And dry my tears;
Can stop the rain.
Lay me down
On a bed of roses,
Free my soul,
Make it clean.
You're the one
That I believe in;
You're the one
That I have seen.

1. My sister destroys Wal-Mart
Hey guys its TAG but more commonly known as Teddy Andrew Grant Verlo (strange I know) 'til about 5 weeks ago I thought I was normal. I had a public school to go to friends. A mom and dad, also a twin sister Lucy, but I know now what I really am, and I'll tell you from the beginning the very beginning.
It was the last week of summer vacation, and my parents were trying to find us a new school because sadly Lucy and I kind of accidentally destroyed the science lab on a school holiday. Believe me when I say that it was not our fault that our chemical exploded and no we weren't aiming at the fish tank. Really! Our

The "she" is me,
I am "she".
My thoughts just bound across the air,
as if.. not even there.
But always I have thought,
"Who would even care?"
"My heart has lost to much.. to a lot"
And will "she" live eternally?
No one will ever know..
then again her true feelings were never shown..
The "she" is me,
I am "she".

Sinnocently of Chicago
This groups mighty creator
From the windy city
No group is greater
Relinquishing the rights
She has to digress
After work at nights
She has to de-stress
Wants to cut her hair
And someday be a mother
Waiting for a proposal
From her significant other
PomPrint's in Scotland
Mending his plaid kilts
They're all torn and tattered
From wearing his stilts
Don't know what's under there
But when nature calls
You better be careful
Of your dangling belt :)
Sometimes he's ired
He likes little dogs
But they get so darned tired
From retrieving his logs
Walk past his window
Look through his door
Eagle's LullabyA tree stands by the waters edgeEagle's Lullaby5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tall and proud and strong
And on a limb there sits a nest
And from this nest a song
It doesnt sound like much at first
Just chirps and squeaks and cries
But listen closely and youll hear
A tale from the skies
It all begins with two young chicks
At their parents side
Learning all they need to know
To live and to survive
Fly high and free, and eagle says
Take every chance to dive
Eat many fish so you will grow
And proudly you will thrive
As great bald eagles you are seen
As symbols of a nation
Power, honor, strength we have
We have survived througho

of not so long ago
this time alone.
Walking under a march sky
Knowing the walk with you
will remain in my memory
my whole life through.
The trees then had leaves golden
each knew what we were thinking
with out speaking.
This time the rays of Easter sun
flowers blooming is all that
will accompany me.
Alone with my thoughts of then
happy and smiling.
Each step along the way
will make my legs heavy
Remembering the way
we were that day
how now we are
so far away.
Highway to Hell - poemHighway to Hell - poem3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Highway to Hell
I'm traveling this road to nowhere;
It's a road I know very well.
I know it's absurd,
My vision is blurred,
But I'm going like a bat out of hell.
I'm searching for something that may not exist,
What it is I can't even say.
And in my despair
I don't even care
If anyone gets in my way.
What makes me a fool is the fact that I know
Where I'll be at the sound of the bell.
My fate's nearly sealed
By the sword that I wield,
And I'm going down the highway to hell.

LustLust in the jungle, lust in the street,Lust6 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
lust has a feel that can't be beat,
a case of the trembles, adrenalin sweet,
souls all aflame from lust's burning heat!
Love is fine music that two people play,
but lust is the dance, no piper to pay,
love is the smile that hopes you will stay
while lust is the grin that says, "Now go away...
...but come back sometime, perhaps next Tuesday?"

Nathan hurriedly moved out of the way of the door, getting several feet away and almost next to Micah before he opened fire. Each shot hit its mark with a loud clang, and the last hit the window square in the center, but not a single one left any dent in the door. Not even a chip in the glass. A faint blue glow from the freezer revealed why.

I have a feeling she'll try to help, no matter what I tell her to do. Best I explain things to her.
The writer drew a deep breath and looked out the window: Micah was leaning against his car, waiting. He'd have to be quick. "Sit down," Nathan said to her, letting out a sigh. "I'm about to make myself sound completely insane."
Susan did as told, slipping down onto the couch, her hopeful gaze never leaving his face as he ran his fingers through his hair and began to pace. "Does that mean I can help?"
He swallowed the knot in his throat, but nodded. "Yeah, but this is a lot more complicated than you can imagine. A lot more... wei

Releasing Michael probably won't help Avery any more than waiting will. I'll have to distract him with one of his belongings so Lumiel can do whatever it is he needs to do before Gabriel gets to him. This could be painful...
"I don't know what you're talking about," Lumiel said, eerily echoing Nathan's question. The writer was sure he did, but just like him, he was trying to buy time. Again, Avarice rolled his eyes.
"Give me a break; you know exactly what I'm talking about," the Sin mocked him. "You might be a force of chaos, but even that is tempered. For one, you can't attack anyone directly unless directly attacked first, and

"Hey, Epsilon," said Zeta, tapping his shoulder. The two dropped back behind the other kids, walking at the rear of the tour group.
"You seen Chi?"
"Yeah. She was in the earlier tour group, so they're probably further ahead."
"Heh-heh," grinned Epsilon, elbowing him. "Better watch it, lady-killer, or Delta'll get mad!"

I'm past 40 ... I do not think extraordinary progress has been made
In harmony and cooperation among states, solving the problems of the world in general
I am 54 years old, and I must say I am not very impressed.
What have I done? I did my best, I assure you.
For a proletary of love, betrayed by heartless friends
Thrown into an imperfect and corrupt world through mo fauly of my own
Left without love as unworthy beings
enjoyed what they did not deserve.

"I love you," he whispered, hoping it was what she wanted to hear. Her lips formed the only smile that could make him wince.
"I know you do," she replied, looking down at the ring on her finger.
"It's not enough, is it?" he asked, already knowing her answer.
She shook her head once again, this time slowly, and with an air of sadness. "No, it's not. I love you too, but I can't trust you. And that means more to me than anything." H

Luck, we all crave it. Yet many do not know when luck applies.
Luck cannot help you in the middle of an exam, nor aid you after it's completion.
Luck exists only in the form of choice, and the choice you make will judge the outcome.
Luck therefore never existed, it is only the point of choice which falls between good and bad fortune.
Luck being wished brings no fortune, after all, how can you wish for what no-one can posses?
Luck cannot alter the physical prescence of objects, it cannot alter the order of the draw.
Luck you can have however, when making a choice, depending on weather or not you choose well.
How "Lucky" are you t
