Mr. and Mrs. Lowe sat anxiously in the small cluttered doctor’s office. They sat side by side in a red plush couch, waiting silently for the genealogist to enter. The desk in front of them was covered with books, loose paper, and family portraits. Plopped in the middle was a high-tech laptop. Mrs. Lowe gave her husband’s hand a tight squeeze and looked around at the posters on the wall. One had a picture of five perfectly beautiful babies smiling at each other. It read, “Neogenealogy: Creating a society of healthier, happier people.” Another had a picture of five-years-olds dressed up as various professions, a doctor, firefighter, scientist, judge. In bold writing it said, “Neogenealogy: Choose your child’s future”. Mrs. Lowe couldn’t help but shake her head in disgust. “I don’t know about this Dan, are we sure this is what we want to do?” She leaned towards the exit. Her husband sighed a
Perfection isn't a size Perfection isn't a size.Perfection isn't a size1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
"I just want to be perfect."
"I want straight A's."
"I want a boyfriend/girlfriend."
"I want a ton of friends."
"I have none of these and I don't even know why I keep thinking that I will get a perfect life once I'm skinny."
There is no such thing as perfection. You have to earn the grades. You have to be yourself and talk to girls/boys in order to get one. To have lots of friends, you have to put yourself out there and be a friend, but just because you have few friends, doesn't mean you are worthless. Wouldn't you rather have a select few that you KNOW will be there for you or have a whole wad of friends and not even know who's really there for you?
Being skinny is not going to magically help you achieve anything. If you hate yourself, for whatever reason, you're going to loath everything about yourself, whether or not you're skinny. The less you eat, the more it effects your memory and thinking so there goes your grades.

Bobbing at the surface
between light and dark,
here and there…
But there is no
There is no escape,
and I question if there will ever be
a way out of this Hell.
I scream at the top of my lungs
from the bottom of my hole,
but no one helps me out
or dares to try.

And past skipped down the memory lane
Nothing matters much
when all is said and done
So we should keep walking
On parallel roads, yet never talking
Just as life goes on
When all is said and done
If life is to be led this way, so be it
No sighs will be heard, no tears shed for it
No reason to fear pain
When all is said and done
My FriendsMy friends are so important to meMy Friends1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't know where I would be
If I didn't have them by my side
They are always on my mind
They always know how to make me smile
I would run a thousand miles
Just so I could be with them
I can't think about what my life
Would be like without them around
They always brighten my day
Even when I am in such a low mood
They know just the right things to say
I wouldn't be who I am today
If it wasn't for my friends
They made me who I am
They made a part of me
Come out that I never knew I had inside
They accept every side of me
The good and the bad
They put up with all of my problems
And they are always there
When I need someone to lean on
Or someone's shoulder to cry on
I love the fact that they are always there
Whenever I am in need of care
When I would be sitting alone
They would always come and sit with me
They never make me feel like I'm different
Cause we are all different in our own ways
I would like to thank every single one of them
For always being the

There is no such thing as perfection.
You can strive to make that perfect line, but the moment you think you have reached it, when you lower the last block into place: It vanishes.
perfection cannot exist in Tetris and it cannot exist in the real world either.

RespiteNow I restRespite3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in this warm embrace
guarded from my troubles
for a time
such a short respite
from my cares
yet I am at peace
even as the moment
and I return to the flame
to bath in blood
thinking every second
I long to lay my wounded soul
on your breast
I can almost feel your hands
mending my cuts
with every life my sword ends
guilt tears my heart
one touch from you
and I am free
cleansed by your love
resting in the sun
your voice calms my fear
though I have the strength
to face calmly
that stills the hearts
of greater men
the slightest thought
the peace you gift
from my harrowed eyes
I say farewell
the weakness in my soul
tempts me to forsake
and wisdom teaches
that without us
there could never be
such perfect peace
so I willingly
gather these scars
my greatest pain
comes not from
a thrust or burn
over the hurt I impart

Question reserved for underwater hallways
Immersed in dreams of the deepest blues
Comets and black holes are drawn to her
Engulfed by auras and spectres alike
Ethereal footsteps expose her paths
Through the boondocks of thoughts unsaid
Diminutive whispers through enchanted keyholes
Such waste lays stained with anticipation
As dust flirts with the wind and light
Yet another perfect moment shared in time

Made up of liars and thieves
Echoes of tragic events
Though no one is yet to see
Water curdles in lakes and puddles
Old men biting at bloody nails
Mistakes and misunderstandings
This world all have come to know
Mouldy family paintings
Hang in this once dusty mote
Histories locked away in old books
Unable to read a single thought
Vacuums in space hide truths
As oceans ascend to the clouds
Animals sense something wrong
That the end is actually right now

Reflections gleaming like pearls
Starring at infinite darkness
This is the curse of night
As we begin to burn eternity
Thoughts lay limp as bruised tongues
Stupor giving way to malice
Slipping into an orgasmic coma
Thoughts oscillating. Disembodied
Noisy like a rusty lawnmower
Simple desires now coagulate
Suffocating me in the cold
Empty rooms echo my whispers
My heart shattering like hailstones
Love now sodden and waterlogged
Embroiled in this sheer disappointment

Between her supple breasts
A concerto of ubiquitous love
Stains these thoughts of regret
Broken ruins lay cheap
Between rotting shadowed arches
Cascading pattens and vortexes
Translations written in blood
Tear stained rose petals
Powdered in bonemeal and devil dust
Thought swollen in hypochondria
Emotions now fossilised in decay
Lost speech in mourning
Spidery sour sounds erupt
Torn apart and disassembled
Suffering the fate of the unloved

Eyes unite in travesty
So lovely and haunting
A foolish lovers fate
As emotions detonate
Lost within mazes
Though fingers not parting
Through sun showers
And invisible thunderstorms
Hands holding heads
Lost in hairs and tears
For what we are
Why is this so hard?

Supple flesh upon her only glows
But mirrors are incapable of lies
As reflections of monsters emerge
Perimeters. Walls. So violated
Sand castles completely flattened
Returning home to the land
As the waves tried to drown us
Crawling. Disillusioned by storms.
I try to fly away from myself
Bleeding. Blistered. Such agony
But you have me by my toes
These sheets are now so unfamiliar
Stains from a life no more. Forgotten
Like deleted memories of dead gardens
This afternoon. Soon. Everlastingly.
The entire world shook. Violently
I lay here with aroused insomnia
Then it happened, so suddenly
Like bullets penetrating my heart
Once upon a split second

Body aching from colds convolutions
Never asleep, not exactly awake
Her harsh nightmare, this awful place
Her neglected body, rigid with hunger
Curled up upon her bed of concrete
Covered by rags and forgotten news
Clutching a bag, her bear, her muse
Thoughts gliding upon clouds
Within memories and dimensions
Where she could never be harmed
This place, her untouched youth
Reality comes crashing around
The bitterness of night becomes true
A realisation that not a soul cares
Will no one reach to capture her tears?

Such articulation and beauty
She weeps from her journey
And I hurt like anguish. So completely
I have never been so fragile for another
Vulnerable to her vivacious hallucination
As I try to hide under clean sheets
History once again suddenly repeats
Again, Im alone at the end.

"I love you to the moon and back"
12 years ago...
I remember you told me that you loved me
And how you carried me when I was three.
I remember your tight hugs
And your your white gloves
And wondering what I was gonna be.
12 years later...
I'm walking down a narrow hallway.
I'm still thinking of what I'm gonna say.
And it hurts me deep inside.
And as I walked though that wide door,
I almost hit the floor.
But I just closed my eyes and sighed.

So many tubes are connected,
This is not what I expected.
Right then and there I had to cry.
You eyes weren't even open.
My heart was absolutely broken
As I watched your pain and kept asking "Why?"
I couldn't even look at you
And everyone felt it too.
