The Unseen Life
I thought pain was created to fade
But it seems like my life was crafted to break
So I apologize to the mirror and say "I'm sorry, it's too late."
I can't even look at my own face, as I can never accept my mistakes
I realize that I am brokenly made
My mind bleeds away the memories I've wasted
Remorse begins to slowly fill in the gaps that are left
This stained razor blade leaves every dark moment perfectly divided
I try not to indulge in act of prayer, because I refuse to ever confess
Even in death I will never rest
All visible colors descend into the ground
And time drifts off to sleep
Every sharp outline ascends into the clouds
As this reality begins to dream
This world has truly abandoned me
I keep on doing what I've done
So I can't deny that I've forsaken hope
I couldn't stop the emptiness once it had begun
But I had no other choice, because I was left alone
All I have ever had was myself to disown
Dawning self-hatred with no e
One Last ThoughtOne last thought before I go to bedOne Last Thought4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One last emotion to get off my chest
Forgiven the shadows of the midnight hour
Given in to my need for disease
And it grows like a fire
Hotter then the surface of the sun
And it explodes out beyond the edges of the universe
One last thought in my head
What am I doing?
What have I done with my life?
Why do I feel so alone, so lost?
I am a lost cause
In a sea of the forgotten
And in it I drown in my emotion
My eyes get heavy and I drift away
Never to remain
The last thought I have
Before I shut my eyes
That last thought I have
Before the rest of my soul dies.

The Words I Didn't Mean
Your last steps seemed to echo
While I watched you walk away
You're leaving me in our love's shadow
And all I can feel is a piece of me break away
The shock starts to sink in
Every pore is conquered
A fissure begins within
I'm torn asunder
Liquid memories drip from my face
My heart will always remember this kind of pain
The love that was shown on this day will remain in vain
I didn't know how much passion could weigh
Or the damage it could do when it betrays
Fused with the words that I never even wanted to say
Compassionless by nature / A lonesome torture
Unloved by liars / Sought by manipulators
Breathing in shards / Tearing out hearts
Caught off-guard / Soul is scarred
The regrets won't let me breathe
The thick tears protect me from what I don't want to see
This fresh wound over my chest is where your place used to be
Pathetically rooted by my knees
I reach for you through the debris
Even though there's no one who can salvage me

Praying for the prey
A saint so blissful
Don't let the old scars awake
A storm of rage comes my way
Idle hands yearn to be unfaithful
Even the heavens won't feel safe
I am my greatest fear
I am my own worst enemy
The glares I give myself are fierce
I barely hold onto this false harmony
My twisted thoughts flicker / The acts of a sinner
The silence of a confessor / A secret held forever
The madness took over / Becoming hell's harbinger
I am the lawless; I am executioner / This is my will; this is my terror
I hated my own reflection
Knowing the truth behind the lie
I destroyed my own protection
I tore down the walls in my mind
The light has darkened
A past so painful
Forcing fury to descend
No more trespasses to repent
I am the child who became spiteful
I have been devoured by my inner demons

I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day, I promise they will fade into yesterday,
And be erased for the next tomorrow.
Your most frightening nightmares could transform
Into your most glorious daydream.
Remember to say goodbye to your tears,
Because once they leave,
It will be quite a while before they do return.
Darling, lift your sleeves,
And show the world that what was once hidden
Behind fear and lost emotions,
Is now exposed and ready to flee from your
I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day…
I promise, they will fade into yesterday…
And be erased into eternal tomorrows.

morality without God"Without God, everything is permissible."morality without God1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
It is unknown who originated the quote above, but it is pretty clear that it was not an atheist. Many religious people, from the most intolerant to some of the more tolerant ones, find it easier to relate to those of other religions than those who have no religion at all. Some of this may be because of encounters with the fervently anti-religious, but much of it is simply bigotry. Those who use the above quote are not simply stating that God is the basis of morality; they are implying that atheists cannot be trusted because of this. In the nineteenth century, much of the United States banned atheists from testifying in court or holding public office because of this view that atheists are untrustworthy. It was not until 1961 that the Supreme Court finally declared that it is unconstitutional to ban atheists from holding public office. Several states still have these laws on the books, and there are still some countries in which being an atheist

"Unnnh...what the fuck...how did I pass out?"
To her right, she could hear some quiet whimpering....it was then that she remembered exactly where she was and what had happened. She looked and saw two girls about her age, both tied tightly to chairs and both of them with tape across their lips. She recognized one of the girls, Miyumi, right away.
"That's the girl from earlier... aww, dammit!"
Ivone's eyes widened and she snapped right back into lucidity, her fists instinctively clenching. She was tied up just like the other girls, her wrists, legs, and midsection tightly bound, while more ropes held her to a chair, the same as her fellow captives. Marie was sitting in the chair next to her, very calmly tugging at her bonds and testing to see if they had any give. She was completely silent, not even bothering to test

"I am grateful for what You give me, Jesus," Jacob said as he stared at the ground.
Jesus smiled at him.
"I may not be able to live in a beautiful mansion, or a beach house where I can see the sunsets. But at least I have shelter. At least I have these people and these things that You have given me, that You have placed in my life. I am blessed in so many ways." Jacob smiled.
Jesus replied, "My blessings to you are like the flowers you see."
Jacob looked around and Jesus bent down to grab one.
"There are...so many blessings, Lord." Jacob said in awe.
Jesus smiled at the small daisy in His hands and said, "Very few pick them up, and embrace them. Others step all over them. Others simply ignore them."
Jacob blinked several times as he stared at the all the flowers below him. Jesus put His hand on Jacob's shoulder. Now he knew. Whenever he saw a blessing sent from God, he would be one of those few who would pick them up.

He had worked her hat awkwardly on his head in an attempt to cheer her up, but as cute as he looked, it hadn't helped in the slightest. He squeezed his way under her arm and into her lap, giving her face a lick.
She lifted her head and picked him up, placing him back where he had been. An obvious sign that she didn't want comforting. Taking the hint, Beloved jumped down from the bed and exited the room, leaving her alone.

He hates them all
He hates what they show him...
what he is,
So clearly reflected back that it can't be denied.
whether from tears or something else, even he doesn't know anymore.
And he hates what that means,
what he's become,
what he isn't any longer...
And maybe he misses who he used to be,
but what that is, he can't quite remember,
for it's lost in a fog of forgotten memories...
and broken dreams
And his mind is shattered to unrecognizable fragments
So even he doesn't know who he is anymore.
So maybe that's what he's trying to find;
the lost fragments...
The pieces of himself that broke along with all he'd ever loved.
But maybe they can't be found,
because maybe he doesn't know what love is anymore,
and maybe he doesn't want to...
He can save himself pain...
by being heartless.
And if he keeps himself numb,
he doesn't have to know sadness
And he can live without caring.
And he does,
but he hates his reflection

Your hair glows like the purest snow

Your eyes linger on my lips
begging, inviting me with the fire in your eyes
A new feeling bursts into my body, I feel it down to the core

Thinking about you, so far away
Waiting, I feel so alone
I finally found someone, and hes already gone
I will see him again, the day will come
and when I do, we will become one
I was tempted, with that look in your eyes
That fiery gaze, with it I could die
My lips met yours, and it was so sweet
Savory and sinister, soon again we will meet...

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.
This verse speaks to us in the "teenager" stage of life. It tells us that God doesnt want us to be influenced by those who thing less of us or expect less of us as "young adults" and "teenagers" in sociaty.
In the book, Do Hard Things, these twin "teenagers" tell us and explain to us that we are not TEENAGERS but ADULTS. They even found out that the word "teenager" was never used until the early 1940's.
Ever read or heard of a book from back in the early 1900's and father back. The girls married at a young age, around 14 or even lower, and the boys went to work, the kind of work your father or mother do to pay for a living. That is because, at that age, they were considered ADULTS.
Brett and Alex Harris, the authors of the book, have a good point that we, as "teenagers" are given such low expectations that we act like childre
