wonders of wisteria
glowing in warmth
of soft spring lights
such beauty invites
calling me to life
breathing colors bright
winds wash over
with hues of new life
i hear her call
as winter rains fall
for now must stay
waiting for wisteria
for seasons song to sing
I'm missing Spring.

"Lin? Sis you alright?" I was disturbed from someone shaking my shoulders, I opened my eyes in shock and saw Caitlyn kneeling down in front of me in panic slightly. My eyes just softened at her and looked around to where I was, still unable to move.
"Caitlyn, I'm fine. Just sorting things out." I stood up slowly, shaking still from slamming and paralyzing myself. "Damnit Lin, don't do that to me! I hate it when you pass out randomly like that." I just looked at her stupidly,
"Caitlyn, I didn't-"
"Why did you run off like that?"
"Because they we're-"
"Get another vision or something?"

She covered her mouth then sat next to me,

"When I grow up I want to be a fireman." Little Bobby Bryar's voice floated through the small circle of children, everyone's eager eyes on him. He enjoyed the attention, especially the attention of one little boy sitting on the opposite side of the circle.
The young boy was named Frank Iero, though he insisted everyone called him Frankie. However, there was one point in time where he went through a stage in which he ordered everyone to refer to him as Princess Frankie the Third. But that stage has long since passed.
Now he was sitting criss-cross-apple-sauce, staring out the window with a dazed look on his face. A bird was cleaning its wings on a tree branch, and he watched it intently.
The circle continued to the next young boy, Raymond Toro. "Well, when I was really little, like 4, I wanted to be a astronaut, but I know that they don't even get real food and plus they can't control when they float, which is almost always all the time, so I think maybe I don't want to be

It's just some words that will mean nothing
in just a few years.
We don't know what we want yet.
Yet we know what we want to want.
So tell me,
Why does my heart hurt when I think of you?
Why when I know I won't see you as much does it bring tears to my eyes?
Why do I feel so alone,
So without a love to call my own?
Why do I want you so bad?
I need you to love me.
I need you to take me in your arms,
And tell me everything will be ok.
I need you to return my feelings.
Even if it's faked,
I will give you my love.
Nothing like this has had my heart so twisted.
No boy, or man, no death,
Has made my soul so tortured.
Why do I love you so much?
When I know it will all just be a lie
In just a few years.
I just tell myself that,
To keep my heart from tearing in two.

"Happy Birthday Gerard!" squealed Frank. Gerard blushed. "You're a whole 6 years old! I gotted you somephin," he said as he pulled a shoe box out of his backpack. It was wrapped in Spiderman wrapping paper and tied with a messy blue bow. Gerard just stared at the 4 year old. He shook his head.
"You didn't need to get me anything, Frankie," Gerard smiled weakly. Frank's eyes started to water.
"B-but... I gotted it for you myself and I wrapped it and errything! 'Cause you're my bestest friend in the whole world! I needed to get you somephin'!" He stuck the box out towards Gerard. Gerard furrowed his eyebrows and took the box from Frank. Frank's huge hazel eyes looked at Gerard hopefully. He had a big smile on his face. He was just too damn adorable to defy. Gerard plopped down on the ground and untied the bow. Frank sat down in front of him and rested his chin in his hands. Gerard stuck his tongue out at Frankie as he proceeded to unwrap the present. When the wrapping paper was off, he r

"There is nothing wrong with gay people. They're just like you and me. You're so homophobic," I say to you. I hate that you are like this. I know you are my best friend but if you know if you say things like that, I feel embarrassed to be seen with you.
"I'm not homophobic. I just find gay people disgusting! " You say coldly.
"Thinking that they are disgusting is homophobic."
"So what if I AM homophobic? Why does it matter if I AM?" you question me.
I shrug my shoulders. I know that if I say something wrong, you will get mad at me and yell. I've put up with a lot from you, but not this time.
"Exactly. Why do you even care anyways? The things that I say don't apply to you anyways, do they?" You look at me strangely.
I care because it's hurtful. Not to me, but to other people. Some of my friends happen t

1. Do not have sex. Having sex is basically signing your own death certificate.
2. If you're either blond, big boobed, refuse to wear a bra, or all of the above, you're going to get killed, usually when you're fucking your boyfriend (who will also be killed, might I add.)
3. Never joke around and play pranks, because when you're really in trouble no one will believe you or care.
4. Don't go to the toilet at night, especially if it's an outside one, or if you're wear no or minimal clothes.
5. Same goes for showers, whether they're outside or not. Not only will you be unable to defend yourself, you will also die naked, which can be kinda embarrassing, and awkward for whoever finds you. Besides, who knows what the killer does with the body… *Shudder*
6. If you're running away, which you will be, make sure you're wearing proper shoes. High heels or bare feet usually end up in tears. And blood. A lot of blood.

He made his way out of the bathroom, still dressed in his pajama pants but being shirtless, letting anyone admire his inked body. Rubbing one of his eyes to get rid of the desire of going to bed once again even though he wasn't that sleepy anymore, he narrowed a bit his eyes, listening some noises coming from the living room of the apartment he shared with his boyfriend.
It was like someone had burst into their apartment and was throwing everything down, like looking for something specific. He also noticed something else; Frank, his boyfriend, wasn't in their bedroom anymore. He had gotten up before Zacky, saying that he wanted a sandwich and stood up, leaving to the kitchen. Not long after he left, Zacky decided to simply obey his body when it said he wanted to pee.
But he knew Frank too well, that man as tall as a girl, black hair with a fringe falling to the right side of his face, hazel eyes and a very adorable smile. Whenever he wante

I sat on the couch of my best friend Mike's house. We've known each other for a while and although he was much more popular than me, he still hung out with me.
I make my way to the kitchen to get another beer. By this point, I'm more than a little tipsy and set off to find Mike.
I stumbled around the party for a while until I busted into the bathroom and found him brushing his teeth.
"Hey man." He said, smiling over to me. He spit out the toothpaste and foam out of his mouth and put away his toothbrush. "What's up?"
"I felt alone." I responded, slouching against the sink.
"You gotta learn to socialize a bit more, huh?" He joked, still smiling.
I smiled back and something came over me. I don't know what it was but the next thing I knew I had kissed Mike. He pushed me away and wiped his lips.
"Dude, what the fuck? You're a fag?" I felt my eyes water immediately.
"I..I don't know. I'm sorry." I blurted guiltily.

"Uh..." I was trying to conjure up an answer that didn't sound too pathetic. "Just couldn't think of a reason to live." He nodded at me, then it was my turn to question. "What about you?"
"Well I really didn't. I overdosed by accident and my parents put me here. If I deny they think I'm crazy so I just go with it to get the fuck outta here."
Oh. Maybe now I just seem pathetic to him...I don't know. I don't even know why I care so much.
Then a bell rung, singnaling that lunch began.
"You can sit with my table, if you want. It has like, all the people in our group and some others. But you can join, if you want." He informed me lightly. I nodded and followed him down the hall to the cafeteria.
The lines weren't too long so Gerard and I got our food in no time and sat down next to the quiet guy from the group therapy, Mikey.

"Bob... I'm so sorry"
"Frankie..... YOUR DEAD IERO"
I honestly did NOT mean to wreck Bob's favourite shirt, it just sort of happened. I tripped over my own feet, as I always do, and crashed into Bob, the blood red juice that was once concealed in my cup now soaked into the fabric of Bobs crystal white t-shirt. I legged it, running into the hallway and up the stairs. A furious Bob was hot on my tail, as the last step approached I felt a rush of relief as I was out running Bob.
My foot slipped sending my whole body crashing into the stairs, my teeth colliding with my tongue and lower lip. I felt the burst of a metallic taste in my mouth, red liquid streaming down my face before dripping onto the Persian blue fabric that carpeted the creaky stairs. I screamed out at the top of my lungs in pain. The stinging sensation in my mouth was phenomenal. I looked back at Bob; he was frozen at the step just below the one I was cradled on.

Let me start off by simply saying that you are one of my biggest heroes. And no, it's not because you sing in a band I like (although like is a painful understatement), because I find you aesthetically attractive, or even because you take the time to write your own music. It's because you inspire me. You've overcome drug and alchoholism. You managed to pull yourself out of a depression that probably would have ended in your death. The fact that you saved yourself has inevitably saved others-myself included. All in all, you're an amazing human being and I aspire to possess your laid-back demeanor and your rationality.
But there's also another thing. If you've managed to find this, you've probably already noticed that you tend to be a character in many of the things that I (along with several hundred-if not thousand-other people) have written over the past several months. I suppose there's a strange sort of taboo in doing this, seeing as you're a real, breathing h

Shit was all I could think as I watched the doctor's stitch up franks tongue. Each tiny thread ripped through the flesh and came out the other side, sending another tiny bead of blood down franks chin. I held his hand, he only flinched slightly at the pain. N'aww my big brave Frankie, soon Il get to kiss him all better.

What? Out of the corner of my eye I saw a small wad of paper fall to the floor, and my right hand subconsciously reached for the back of my neck. Making sure the teacher wasn't paying attention, I turned around and scanned the room for anyone looking suspicious.
One blonde girl wearing a Jonas Brothers t-shirt giggled obnoxiously, while the two jocks on either side of her smirked. I flipped them all off. I kicked the paper ball away from me, praying for the bell to ring soon.
As I power-walked (I hate that word, but it was accurate.) down the hallways, I remembered that I was getting a locker partner today. Apparently the kid had been having some troubles with his other partner, and I was he only kid without one that was convenient for his classes. He was a grade younger than me, too.
I remembered all of this because as soon as I turned a corner and was within spitting distance of my locker, I saw a midget brunette kid jumping up to reach the top shelf. I smirked, feeling
