SometimesSometimes a person isn't as happy as they seemSometimes3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sometimes that person has a really hard life
the girl that smiles everyday cries so hard at night
that boy who is so loving and caring wants to be loved and cared for back
the one who helps people deal with their own hurt
may very well be one who doesn't know how to deal with their own pain
life isn't as simple as it seems
sometimes people are afraid
sometimes the don't know how to ask for help
sometimes they just want a friend, someone to talk to
sometimes those who care the most for you want to be cared for
sometimes the ones who love you want to be loved
sometimes the ones who help you want to be helped
sometimes the ones who seem unbreakable are already broken
sometimes people just don't bother to look past the mask
sometimes people just don't get it.
Dragonflies..Dragonflies..5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A night so warm upon a breeze
Sending shivers through the trees
Breathing life within the night
Creating beauty from the sight
As many dragonflies did fly
Their splendor lighting up the sky
and floating gently to the glow
The warmth, a guide of where to go
Wonder followed the candles blaze
A misty sight in pleasures gaze
A dream she held within her heart
Until the dragonflies did part
A memory stored, to remember when
A simple thought is needed then
To place a smile upon her face
This gentle girl of calm and grace..

The tide of time recedes and leaves
a bittersweet taste on my gentle lips
of your goodbye kiss of bliss and sorrow
that death, closely keeps
darkness is filling everything
in the nothingness of the night, I have no more light
even memories of what I used to be are dissolving
my past, my present, my future... blurring
surrounding my veins, closing me in this molding
The many-hued honeymoon painting is fading
also broken by your hands, lusting for the opal on my wedding ring
yet… the ghosts you have forgotten in your life
returns with the grass fields and seeds every Spring
awakening me from my sleep,
sweet was my name pronounced by the wind
I still hold my black-rose and my lace dress wing
the sand clock disappears,
frozen in contained tears
I have cried alone on for so many years
- comeback, please release me
from the cracks in these walls
where you've been hidden your sins
spiders crawls, myriads of roses they weave
they move in my company, vengeance lullabies,
TicklishJack tried very hard to hold in a laugh as he looked at the scene below him from a tree branch; Bunny was curled up asleep beneath the shade of the tree, arms tucked under his head, and a pleasant smile on his face. A few decorated eggs were settled beside him, sleeping as well.Ticklish3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
'Oh man, this is too easy.' Jack thought, before jumping from his perch and landing quietly beside him.
'Okay, what pranks can I pull on an unsuspecting, sleeping rabbit…?' He pondered, various pranks going through his mind. Whip cream in the hand, boring; barking dog ringtone, overdone; covering the eggs in frost patterns, dangerous. It figured, the one time he had the upper hand on Bunny and he couldn't think of a decent prank.
He idly poked the rabbit's side with his staff as he tried to figure something out- and stopped. Bunny's nose twitched a little, and small smile tugged at his lips. Jack paused, before doing it again. He got the same response, and smiled a little.
He traded his staff for

My hand feels cold where yours once held, empty as I let it fall by to side.
Staring into space as I watch you pace away, almost expecting you to spin
around and hold me in your arms once more. I still need you, but know that
you have chosen the next path I must take.
I still think about how my name seemed to glide from your mouth effortlessly
and how your voice was like a lullaby to me. Whenever you were by my side, it
couldn't concentrate on anything else.
I gave you everything I had to offer and thought you understood my heart.
Looking back I feel as if I've created an illusion, but everything seems so
clear. I'm baffled on how drastically things have changed between us in such
a short time.
I miss the warmth of your arms wrapped around me, they way you used to look
into my eyes and tell me I was the one.
You said that you'd never leave my side but now I'm sitting here, in love alone.
The place stories come from'Sometimes people wonder where stories come from. A person can tell a story about something so unbelievable, yet so wonderful that it seems real. That's because it is.The place stories come from4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I don't wonder about it, though, because I know where stories come from.
It's a magical place with thousands of enchanting creatures, beautiful plants, trees as high as sky scrapers and heroic people. Whatever you can think of, it exists there.
Every once in a while, people come to witness all of this. They watch the talking trees, dance with the fairies and feel the heat of a dragon's fire. Eventhough there are many people at the same time, you don't walk into them. No matter how long you stay there, you won't meet any other visitors or even know that they're there.
Stories come to us for a reason. It's because we saw something, met someone or did somewhat unusual things that we remember. We remember them and write them down or tell them to others. That's how stories are born.

UnderstandingIt's just a phase, you're just kids.Understanding5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You don't know what it's really like out there in the world.
You can't possibly fathom it, especially
when you are in love.
Everything's chocolate and rainbows and soft words with long touches.
We raised you better than that.
You're not doing that, not on our dime.
How can you possibly even think of that, especially
when it's only been 3 months?
Everything is not about you and your relationship.
Just stupid kids.
You don't know.
You will never know.
YOU'RE the one who doesn't know!
What we've been through already, what we know,
what we feel, what we want...You don't know!
Yes, we are in love.
But we also know the real world...
Life hasn't been easy.
It's been cruel.
We know the bite of life and it's stabbing venom,
we both have struggled.
But now we have each other.
And that's all that we'll need.
So shut up.
You're just kids.
And we'll take this world for all it's worth.

Will you come in?
The clock is turning.
How long has it been?
Wrap all your arms around my body,
it is such complete bliss.
Others would run, screaming,
but this, I would never miss.

Please, run away."
My heart won't leave you.
I'll always want to stay.

I pray for you,
while others pray for light.
I hear you coming.
Will you kill me today?
I try to live normally,
as you watch children play.
You've been merciful,
growing fond of me.
Stare out into the darkness,
is that you I see?
Afraid of your return,
but I hate when you go away.
I'll continue to sit right here,
waiting for a new day.

The Shades Of My Eyes
Treading along a path of healing
Within an aura of rejuvenation
Restore the strongest force of life
Renew these weakening limits of mine
Devotion has no means to an end
There is only hope and strength to be lent
Just like the void called the sky
Even the clouds don't hinder sight
A storm could be brewing
And lightning could be striking
But there is no fear dwelling
Only a calm, tranquil feeling
A rarity itself
An enigma that stands out
A peace that transcends
An energy that ascends
A strong person who is still only human
An outcome of living within the moment
Like a stunning sunrise
Shunning out an ominous evening night
Piercing through that unending blanket of darkness
To see the light of day again, it tells me that I've made it
The sun rays hit and land
And starts to melt the doubt from my hands
The will to endure
The wisdom to acquire
There are no word

-First, middle and last-
And like ebony veins it seeped within
Satin soft scarlet paper.
The night whispered mine
And I followed
Ignited with the flame of my love;
I watched my heart fly..
..Through constellations of silent stars.
