Dear Mom do you remember yesterday?
Do you remember that we were out walking in the woods?
It was so wonderful mom, I ran and I was playing. I had no worries, because I was your dog and you were my mom.
Do you remember that another dog was walking by? I saw him before you, and I ran joyfully forward.
I was not so old mother, so my legs wouldn't stop, it was an accident, but I fell into the lady.
Then she pulled the dog away from me, I followed him, I just loved to play. The lady took him up, why wouldn't she play mom?
She yelled at you, I didn't like it. She said the words "dangerous" and "fighting dog", and pointed at me.
I was no "fighting dog", I was your dog!
At home, two men arrived. Happy as always, I welcomed them, because I was your dog.
They taught me a new word: "Banned".
,,But mom" I said; ,,I'm just your dog?"
When the men went, you cried mom.
I pushed my nose under your hand, I would just wanted to comfort you.
Why do you cry mom?
I slept in your bed, for the first time, a

Marching through to Potsdam Platz, he
Came to meet a Figure clothed
In a torn brown mantle with a
Grizzle matted beard. And lost then,
"Where's the line?" the man did ask.
"Follow me," the answer came and
Down they marched. Coming to an
Open field they took the left – the
Appian Way, and further down they
Stopped to take a drink by a
Rancid breathing river. Boatman,
"Give a tired soul to ride," he
Told the weary travelers. To
Make their journey simple they
Cast the coin. Toward the blackened
Marsh they went and noted acres,
Dark to liquid dark. And here they
Made the stop. Without a yield they
Ventured deep and down to find the
Figure's answer. Starting out at
Last among the frozen corpses,
Seeing Owen's Abraham they
Knew this couldn't be the place and
Went on further to the sun and
Up and up they went, past all the
Frauds and gluttons, heretics and saints. But
Still they could not find the line.
Now they met with Aenid's shade, but
He hid quick and gave up no
Aid. With downcast eyes u

I found myself in a dank, dreary part of the world eventually: Canada. After some years running around Europe, trying to find similar cases, trying to find clues, I figured it was best to go to the source, where-ever Adonis had gotten his little disease from. Without an real definable clue to go on, I searched around these parts without success for years. I'd lost count of how many. It was a very uninspired, bleary span of time that even now, I don't remember much of. An endless sea of flashing faces, blips and flashes of brilliance, but still tied into the world, I was still apart of it. But my soul was broken.
It was like i lost grip of the edge of reality, stuck in this limbo between what I could understand and what I tuned out. I tuned everything out. It was only when I spent some time in Norway and Iceland, hung around there, took pointless fishing boats out for the sake of it,
Wrong kind of love.My friend you fell in love but this love is all wrong.. you see.. you fell in love with the blood, in love with the harm. This love like a drug, it never goes away. You always want more and can never seem to get enough. Every night, every day, it's always the same. Another cut, another scar, another thing to remember. You can't give it up, the need becomes to strong. You need the blood, the hurt feels good. Your battle scars are showing, better cover them up. You fell in love my friend.. With the wrong kind of love.. You fell in love with the blood. In love with the harm.Wrong kind of love.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

Three simple little words.
The fear that my confession
will be only for the birds.
How to say "I love you,"
When it's bursting to come out?
It's scrambling my insides
and it's mixing things about.
How to say "I love you?"
To let you know I care...
To show you that my days are
dark and grey without you there...
How to say "I love you?"
How, oh, how indeed...
To make it crystal clear
that you're the only thing I need.
Poem To A LoverWhen I'm with you there is no where else I'd rather be,Poem To A Lover1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am a lock and you are my key.
When I'm with you, well, that's where I belong.
Being in your arms feel right, when everything is so wrong.
You are my everything, I'll never let you go
And, love, I just want to let you know,
I love you more than I could ever explain...
I want to be your shelter in the pouring rain.
I want to be by your side, not even in death shall we part.
Forever side by side... and how did all this start?
With a kiss on the cheek and a "That's all you get."
It seems so silly, a small little gesture, but yet
I am the happiest person alive with you by my side.
I want to be called yours, and I want to call you mine.
We will get there together I promise, no, I pinky promise.
I love you.. Forever. <3

When you're talking to my face
I don't accept it
That you treat me like shit
But this is what we have become
We have gone too far
From pride we have fallen
Let's rearrange this and build It up
I don't understand when
You're treating me like shit
I don't want to hurt you
But I'm falling for your tricks
How did we become this
How did we lose all hope
Lets rise from the ashes
Let's rearrange this and built it up
So now we have walked a thousand miles
But we haven't learned
We crossed the corners of the earth
But this just won't work
Why do we keep hoping
This has gone far enough
Let's watch this crumble
I won't even try to help
If you fall down
Don't come crawling to me
I've moved on
And now I can finally breath
Now I'm free from you

Came to haunt me today
The tears I spill tonight
I hope they will quickly end
I'm blessed with this curse
I can't forget who you are
And at times that make me hurt
For every stab I've felt
I know they're mostly from you
From yesterday all the dreams
They come to haunt me today
I need somebody someone
To hold me tonight when I realize this pain
I'm blessed with these memories
I'm bless with this hurt
For every step that I make
I know you won't be there
On my way
All this came from yesterday
And I know it sounds like dirty
But this is my life
And I hate it so much

Today was supposed to be good
I did this myself, I brought myself down
Today I was supposed to be outgoing
Today I was supposed to laugh
Why didn’t I call, they wouldn’t say no
Today I was supposed to dream
Today I was supposed to be me
Used this mask of mine, once more
Today was supposed to be the reason
Today was supposed to be the feeling
Why didn’t I tell her, how much I love her
Today was supposed to be happy
Today was supposed to be good
I ruined today myself, I locked myself inside
And told myself, that it would be a good day

The sun was setting as the soldiers silently chanted those two words that they had never expected to be in the same sentence. They had rid all titans from the world. Like any other battle, there were a lot of casualties. Unfortunately, in the end even the great ally of humankind was killed. Some quietly cried for victory, while others cried in grief.
In the vast field, some were still standing, looking at the setting sun up close for the first time in peace. Soon, everyone was looking for the lost companions that couldn't; who hadn't made it. Moments of standing in silence after, they slowly started to wander off a bit. But two soldiers with the famous wings of freedom covered bloodied remained there, unmoving, still staring into the big, blinding red sun. Rivaille stood next to Hanji, who was crouched on the grass, her glasses removed as her hands were covering her face, weeping loudly.
Normally Rivaille would tell her to s

A Bleeding Rose Slowly Healing
I’m going to tell you a secret
The biggest of them all
I will tell you this secret
The happiest I’ve ever told
A year ago on this day
My heart was broken
My rose was bleeding
And when I’d lost all hope
An angel came to see me
I’ve never felt these feelings
These emotions they are so great
And when I wake up in the morning
The angel is on my mind
A year with her is closing in
And I just want her to know
what great of support she is
And that I have kept
Every secret she has told
I used to be bleeding
My heart was a rose
Pouring out red
But you held it in your hands
You kissed my bleeding rose
You tended it everyday
You slowly warmed it up
You healed it everyday
I know you think you are a bother
But you are not even close
I love you my angel
With every bone
My rose is healing
You’ve been patient so far
Please don’t let me go
I’ve gotten used to your warmth
My heart was shattered
My rose it bled
But I know my darling
All of These ChangesIt was a big day and a little day.All of These Changes1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
Something's didn't really change at all,
and something's changed very little,
and something's changed in a really big way...but all of these changes
are for right now temporary until things change again.
To put it any simpler than this, changes were made
and changes for right now were made...but to just call them changes would be best then to
call them good or bad changes at all.
I suppose that there's many positive ways at looking at today,
but for right now the best thing that could be said about today is that
it's over and tomorrow looks much more hopeful than today had managed to be.

Keep On ShiningThis truth it has stabbed my heartKeep On Shining1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a thousand needles slowly making their way
This love has made me fall apart
I'm broken glass, I'm the broken glass of man
The stabs gets harder every day
The needles they come closer to my heart
As I grow it tears me to pieces
I'm tattered cloth, thrown in the litter
As I try to recover and stand straight
I realize how crocked my back has been all this time
I can't walk straight
Cause my guilt and my shame, brings me down
But even thought through all this
I have still small light that shines to me every day
Cause even in my darkest days
It can still make me smile, it always wants me to live
I talk like this is all over
I talk is as I'm soon to die
But the truth is
I'm here to stay, just to watch that small light, every single day

Those who I have broken I will fix
I'm done with this thought that I'm nothing
Cause I'm something that no one will never be
I'm done crying myself to sleep
I will laugh at the thought
I will never pick that blade up again
Cause if I will cut something it will be paper
I will cut paper
With my pen
I will write my emotions
And I will not hide
I'm not evil
I will cut my paper
I will use my deadly weapon
I feel bad for the item I'm covering in ink
I know how it feels to be covered
I know how it feels to be cornered
I will not take any pills
This is my medication
I will learn
Something that we all have known
When we were kids
I will learn to

He is a jumble of emotions
struggling to form an opinion,
but they don't have enough ammo.
But it's safer that way cause
when I'm scared I shoot.
He never misses a target
with his shotgun,
but he hasn't seen the speed
at which I can take down a mans heart.
We lay together in the window light
but he doesn't weave me romantic lyrics,
and he never gives me foolish promises.
Instead he watches me trace
the lines of his tattoo.
He's not magic, just painfully realistic,
when I'm used to silly boys
who treat relationships
like short romance novels,
then start on a new one
when it's over.
But in his eyes I see
that he has no intention of
putting this book down.
It scares me wildly
and I take aim.

UnattainableThose who are lucky enough to have friends are lucky indeed. For not everyone is so lucky.Unattainable2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It must be nice to have someone's shoulder to cry on. Someone you can bitch to; someone who'll hold you when you're hurt. Not everyone has someone like that.
Some of us just have friends, only a few, whom we call best friends, but they don't say such things in return do they? No, because we aren't their best friend, we're just a friend. Or worse that weird person they hang out with.
You see they have someone else that they uncover their heart and soul too. Someone they've known since they were children; or someone they met several years ago and became inseparable. I envy them. I envy all of them.
Some of us don't get those people; some of us don't get relied upon. We aren't all so lucky. Some of us are shunned, through no fault of our own, or perhaps through only our own fault. It's a mystery that will always escape me.
How do they do it? How do they make these excellent friends? How do they beco

For a long while, the two just stood there, wrapped around each other as they waited for the end to come. Their thoughts were of nothing more than the one they held, and their regrets for their future were almost overwhelming. Their heads bowed, their tongues silent, both of them were struggling with the tears that threatened to overflow as the voice interrupted their last moment of peace.

Cries rang out in the hospital room as a young woman, barely eighteen, gave birth to her son. A bastard child, he was...born from a one night stand that she'd done only for money to buy more drugs, more poison. She was screaming, and the tears tracked down her filthy, bedraggled face as she clutched her sheets for dear life while her baby boy got pushed into the world. "Get...h-him away from me..."

or music, or even trees,
but all that came out were visions of you.
So I guess I'll just confess that
your face splatters across my mind in pieces,
because they don't all come together until
your fingers touch my lips.
I don't think I'm crazy,
but you are singing every song on the radio
and you are whispering in my ear
while you stare at me in the mirror.
You must be magic to be everywhere.
The kind of magic that
makes trees reach up for celestial beings
while we curl up between their gentle roots.
I've always wished on stars,
but I now have a reason to change my wish.
We're still too young to understand forever,
and I know the lights will dim for a while.
(I know of plenty of sad songs to keep me breathing.)
But you know where my star lives
so come back to me when you're ready
to tell me that I can stop wishing.
it doesn't matter what I try to write about,
because you are embedded
in every image
in every sound
in every word.
