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
and you will probably catch him
Playing Wild Boar
Dallas is the home
Of our boy ShippD
Not quite a gnome
But still pretty shifty
He knows what he wants
He knows what he likes
Instead of dating the girls
He's home playing with trikes
On his computer - 3D
He' trying to render
A new gas tank
Or a new front fender

Chocolate MonsterOnce upon a time there was a little girl named Cecilia. She was very sweet looking and very polite, therefore people were always giving her sweets."Such a sweet girl deserves sweets," they said and patted her on the golden-haired head, smiling at her bright-blue eyes. And as it is the way with people, nobody wasted a thought on what was best for the child, as long as it smiled happily, which it always did.Chocolate Monster6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Cecilia, on the other hand, started to be very vain, because she could not help noticing that she always got more attention and a lot more sweets from the grown-ups than all the other children. "I must be really special," she thought, "like a princess. One day I'll be the queen of them all. But I don't want to wait that long, they should start bowing to me now." But the other children refused to treat her like a princess, or indeed a queen. Instead, they threw mud at her and were told off for it by the adults. After that they laughed at her behind her back and never talked to or play
PerspectivePerspective2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The looking glass extends throughout
All splatters of pure clear
A reality that hasn't begun
All innocently of mind
The stares of the unknown
Are stepping stones across
The bridge of perspective
The perspective from within
Redden streaks merge with white
Staining all lies inside
Bringing them all out into the surface
Over the edge of the terrence
Crossing over that gap
With the sharpened demons below
Waiting to devour
Waiting only to steal
The planks upon which they walk
Creak and fall with every step
With steps further they take along
A new perspective of reality
DawnDawn2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How dawns the morn so very bright and bold
that night's dark face can only turn away;
and all our dreams in sunlit skies are sold
as eventide gives pardon to the day.
She feels the cloak of dreams unclasp their sway
and fading softly spun into the gold,
that she will rise from sleep and make her way
ere morning grows another second old.

Of all of them, one was his favorite. A fat eight inch male emperor scorpion. His glistening black chunky carapace, heavy looking stinger and huge claws made him look like the stuff of most peoples nightmares, but Neil could handle him with ease,
To Whom It May ConcernYou address the press,To Whom It May Concern5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Preach the issues
You place your people in a box,
To the ones whose trust you've stolen.
You wage war against the world.
You candy coat your cold blooded culling,
Make the people praise your prowess.
You cater to critics,
Proving points to problems they approach.
You say that we'll see change,
Yet we witness it only for the worse.
So now a word from the wise.
Take a bow.
Gaze upon the masked masses
Waiting for your promises yet unfulfilled.
We the people of the United States,
In order to form a more perfect union

from clouds in the sky,
A honk of the horn
from cars passing by,
The aimless chatter
of crowds in the street,
The rustle of leaves
as air feels the heat,
The pound of a heart
A tempo. A beat.

What crosses your mind?
But do you care what I think?
I could answer it for you,
And I would not want you too.
I want all the peace of mind to stay,
All the things that have been said,
won't be remembered,
just like we have never saw each other,
never to say hello again.

Questions I ask, but no reply is heard.
This beast, the likes of which I never encountered,
Numbing pain, but still a shadow ripping at my soul.
Why does sorrow escape me, and to where has Emotion flown?
These things I do not know, but will one day learn.
Without hope or doubt,
Fear or courage,
What am I but an empty shell?
I do not hate,
Yet I do not love.
I lust for these things.
I long to feel these sensation, but alas...
I walk as a zombie in this cold, dark world.
When will they see my sufferings,
The things that make me who I am?
Who will cast a warm light on this cold, dead soul?
For now I shall stay lost.
For now I will find no way out.
My life blood shall pour from my body into that fathomless pit called Humanity.
Alone and lost I may be, but I must try,
Try to find a companion,
My hope to feel the slightest of sensations will only end in pain.
But I think to myself...
At Desperation's End,
Pain is wel

They said well stay friends forever,
And to separate? Absolutely never!
But now where I stand,
In the middle of a dangerous hound,
How come theyre not together?
My friends, my favorite pals,
Have all chosen completely different paths,
Not for once daring to look back,
At wonderful memories we had.
We were packed with a strong bond and combined,
With the strength of our friendship we bind,
That no matter what or when,
Youll know always and then,
Your friends are always behind.
Youd never fear for you always knew,
Thered be a friend to protect you.
A friend you go to in need,
To help you laugh,
Or join when you weep.
But were not friend anymore, remember?
No more bonds or faithful protectors.
And now that youve got a vulnerable back,
Believe it or not,
Your friends are the ones to attack.
I wish all this chaos would end,
And theyd all stop this game of pretend,
To know how wrong,
And how far they have gone,

Is it real
Is it true
Tell me tell me

It happened again.
I swore to myself it wouldnt.
I look - horrified - at my heart.
Laying broken and helpless on the floor.
I had only myself to blame,
It wasnt his fault.
He said it just wouldnt work.
That we didnt belong together.
So I make a promise to myself.
To be stronger this time.
But then I look at him as he passes by,
And my broken heart mends itself again.

built up in the storage area during its years of neglect. Flicking his rag at her, Taasha pulled his lips into a smirk that showed
wolf-like fangs protruding from his gums. "Tired already, Aka?" he jeered.
Akaea tugged the rag from his grasp as it whipped towards her a second time. She tossed it over her shoulder and stuck
a tongue out childishly. The man stalked over to her and reclaimed the dirty cloth, reaching down to hand Akaea her broom once more.
"We still have half the room yet to clean," he reminded her.
"So? We have all day." She ignored the proffered broom and sat, reclining on a wooden box that had been shoved against the wall.
"Chief said to clean until we're done, so if we hang out in here, we get the day off. He won't know."
Taasha frowned. "We're in enough trouble already, Akaea. How I ever let you talk me into that stupid stunt, I'll never know."

When lifes' circumstances throw us for one reason
Or another into a state of stress and depression...
Think of beauty - that which life has given us - with nature.
Share laughter, and smile; to enlighten our thoughts.
While smiling on the outside...the natural beauty of life
Smiles with us: and all around, so...
Laughter: uplifts the spirits of all of us.
With laughter...come smiles.
In your thoughts - of the mind.
When some of life seems again; impossible to bare...
PoemAlone as the darkness outside spreads deep within mePoem8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I feel so empty and yet so full
A paradox of emotions
But one that has been haunting me for a while now.
My body moves through the house that has many ghosts within,
The voices that I think are in my head are too real and are all around me.
How can this be?
I feel the presence that makes me want things...
Things that I have never felt before
My life has been void of this sensation
As I lived each day in repetitious nothingness
How can I suddenly feel this emotion that I can only call red?
Black is darkness that lurks within my soul that needs to be released,
Red is the passion that fuels it,
The fire spreading through every part of me,
My existence commanded by the torrent flames
As I try to breathe as my mind plays tricks on me.
I want to be engulfed with this wondrous darkness swirling with red,
And hug myself as I tremble with ecstasy and then...
The emptiness making me shiver with coldness,
As ice replaces the fire t

"I do not understand," Omi said. Although he had grown taller over the years, he still was too short to see over the bars of Jami's cradle without a stool. "Why is our son wearing skulls and crossbones on his pajamas?"
"Because he's going to grow up to be evil like me," Jack answered flatly.

She's a shy young woman, who's nervous around me,
She's worried that I'll try her as just another fling,
But I see in her eyes lust and desire,
I have an idea of what she desires.
I pull her close and to test her desire,
As I kissed her neck,
Her blood become fire,
I drew her closer, pressed my body against hers,
She becomes flustered, trying to stay in control.
I kiss her lips, I hold her still,
She draws away slowly, drying not to blush,
I caress her chest; I left her in awe,
I twirled my on her breast, she lost her Breath,
I gripped her waist close, she felt my desire,
I turned of the lights, and fulfilled her desires
I walked her into my office, in the middle of the night,
Laid her on the table, slipped her pants off slow,
I admired the site of her sweet essence in front of me,
I kissed her thighs, my pants tightened slightly,
I moved the match that would strike an inferno slowly across her lips,
And I gave her soul a nice long kiss.
I felt her squirm as I started that fire,
