Maybe thats why,
I cry so much,
Maybe thats why,
I don't want,
To breathe so much,
But thats okay,
Cause don't we die young?
Maybe that'll make it easier,
To take myself away...
Maybe it'll make it easier,
To fill my lungs with paint,
Instead of air
Maybe it'll make it,
That much harder to,
Erase my existence,
From this universe,
Cause paint stains are,
Very hard to remove
And glitter is,
Very hard to clean
And lipstick marks are,
Very hard to forget...
So I'll take it all in,
And the glitter,
And the lipstick
And it'll be okay,
Cause don't we die young...

Because She Lived
by Kelly Michelle Baker
Because she lived,
In time of the green,
I look back on the years,
And all I have seen.
Because she lived,
My greatest desire,
The world bears a prospect,
To muse and inspire.
Because she lived,
I pick up the pen,
And draw out her beauty,
Again and again.
Because she lived,
To speak without shame,
She'd lead her own march,
In a head bobbing game.
Because she lived,
I've lost the ability,
To wriggle my fingers,
With peached-leopard agility .
Because she lived,
In a time not so long,
The music of outside,
Plays a much stronger song.
Because she lived,
With vigor so busting,
We argued her cuteness,
Not ever adjusting.
Because she lived,
Some seeds by and by,
Hide hidden in corners,
In the places she'd fly.
Because she lived,
I now see so much,
For me and the others,
Of the lives that she touched.
Because she lived,
The feelings to feel,
Evade me at times,
When the memories are real.
Because she lived,
And though I long knew,
A life without wingbea

My dark eyes can no longer show emotion,
I am numb to everything around me.
You were the one to make me this way,
Cold and heartless, filled with only fury.
I believed your good intentions,
I endured your playful ridicule.
I followed you with unyielding devotion,
But you were a fraud. And I? A fool.
You turned away when I needed you most,
Leaving me to a fate so horrendous.
I had lovingly given you my fragile glass heart,
But you broke it into a million pieces.
For a moment I could feel nothing
But the dull throb of ache and depression.
Then it all came crashing down on me:
The sadness, the grief, the anger, the desperation.
I realised my grave mistake,
I had let you use me as your own.
There was nothing more I could do now
Except whimper, scream, thrash and moan.
I pushed you away, shunned you out
And steeled myself for pain.
I slowly began to put my heart back together,
But it was imperfect, never again to be the same.
Now here I stand, emotionless and bitte

“Thank you for coming, Doctor. My name is Henry Carver, and I’ll be your escort,” the heavy man in the white coat greeted.
Patrick took his hand. “My pleasure. Where is the patient?”
“We have to go down a ways.”
As the two men walked into the elevator, Patrick stroked his white goatee and asked, “What is the situation?”
“Well, the subject appeared to be accepting the treatments. She gained increased strength, speed, agility, and perception. Also, her mental intellect greatly increased.”
“Wait, wait, she? I thought the patient was male.”
“She was. It’s one of the side effects.”

A boy around 15 years old ran across the rain. Breathing heavily and on the verge of collapsing he ran on from street to street, building to building. Finally he found a dark alleyway to rest at. Leaning against a door trying to catch his breath, a girl with long black hair and brown eyes slowly approached him.
"Is this your idea of revenge?" the boy asked.
"Revenge? No, it's not like me. You just know to much."
"What is this? The Mafia? Your secret is safe with me."
"I know it's not, you already sent an email to your friend Josh. I have already arranged his extermination."
The boy laughed "So this is the mafia? Kill anyone who knows your secrets, interesting, Josh will definitely be interested in this."
"Not kill, you should know that. Anyway you or 'Josh' poses no threat to me, actually maybe Josh, but not you. It will only take a few minutes."

In a place just a little left of normal time and space, you can find Kersi's. Most find it by accident when taking a highway with a number which can be divided by four just at dusk on Wednesdays when the air is completely still. There are, of course, other ways to find it.
Kersi's, also known as Kersi's Hall or Kersi's Pub, sits on the edge of a road labeled '416' by bright, metallic-blue signs. The road itself is quite smooth and takes travelers to their intended destination twice as fast if they don't stop.
But, if they do stop, they will find the soft-gravel parking lot nearly full. There will always be at least one spot left.
The building, two stories tall and similar in style to old west American architecture, is painted red with accents of blue. Large, saloon-like windows cast a soft, pale light, especially once dusk settles into evening. The entrance to Kersi's is almost in the back, through a silvery door which seems to barely contain the light leaking o

-General Tips for Competing in an OCT
Believe it or not, being a host isn't as great as you might think. Being a judge is no better. Often times people create an OCT without putting forethought into what they're committing to, which is why so many OCTs usually end up abandoned or never getting off the ground.
Qualities for a Good Host
+While anyone can make a group and start up an OCT, here are a number of things you should consider before doing so.
-Time: Being a host requires having lots, and lots of free time. You may think that the biggest aspect of time is spent on judging, but that's far from truth. Hosts are constantly answering questions, making sure things are submitted to correct folders, posting updates, organizing events, planning, and dealing with members.

It may be in my head,
But, I can see him in that bed.
She comes in too.
whispering "I love you."
Her hair across his chest.
His hand up her dress
Slipping it off of her.
They don't even hear me stir.
And his hand's in her hair.
She tells him how much she cares.
The covers go over, Her dress is on the floor.
He took off his shirt after he locked the door.
Their lips lock together as they kiss,
I never believed my love would be like this.
And she's going now. And he comes back to bed.
They just killed me even though it was in my head.
And he thought I was asleep, he made the wrong call.
But, he has no idea....that I heard it all.

don't trust my appearances or what you think of me.
despite the age, I will need your hand to hold:
when the light will shine on me, I may lean my weight upon it,
while walking through the crowd of people, I may squeeze it hard.
if I look sick, don't worry, just remind me to B R E A T H E;
my heart will learn to beat more silently and steady with time, I believe;
please don't count my sudden trips to the ladies room,
as my stomach never rests, expect it to be awhile before I come back.
I like receiving compliments, although I contradict them; it's not your fault.
my hands will be cold and trembling, but I don't need you --

I can’t look in the mirror for fear I’ll see
Another part of me that I can’t let be
I want to cut it out of my soul
And just live with the gaping hole
Take control and choose to lose
The part of my heart where the insides bruised
I didn’t fall; I was caught by the lonely, crushing darkness
Of this I’m sure; it was there more than you ever were
I don’t know why the love I need
Is flowing in the blood I bleed
Yes, I’m confused and, yes, I’m a mess
Frustrations magnified by stress
I don’t know why I pushed so far
New cuts cover where the old ones are
My scars are scarred, my heart’s in shards
I’m breaking down like a house of cards
I fell already blind into decimating blackness
And used what I could find of my heart as target practice

No, not the me wrapped in pretty ribbons,
Meticulously layered in that vomit-inducing, festively designed wrapping paper you like so much
Those are the distractions I made for you
The real me, she's hidden in a deep dark place inside that carefully crafted box you see
And when she is no longer covered in all the pretend
There is nothing festive or pretty about her...
I never knew how easy it was to lock myself away forever with fear
Fear of rejection, pain, fear of the world beyond the make-shift walls I built myself
Not until reality showed me how disgusting people can be
The cruelty that was once myth, I now see, shining in the eyes of my closest friends
And it's staring me down, constantly
Every god damn day
Every god damn time I get too close!
Will you still love me? If I open myself up to you?
If I allow you to unravel that stupidly sarcastic ribbon?

When I was little, my dad would bring home paper from his job. He worked with computers and stuff and often had tons of it lying around, so I'd make use of it and draw. (With his permission.
