how could something
so obviously in my mind
hurt me so bad
when you touch my hand
my arm is shocked
with an electric bolt
when you look me in the eyes
my stomach all but
when you kiss me
my knees grow weak
and threaten to give
when you whisper in my ear
my cheeks burn
a hot crimson
and, i love it, so..
should you say
that you would leave
my heart would begin to ache
straining to pump my thickening blood
heavy with sorrow
the thump of my pulse
would hurt slow
until it just might
beautiful, mental, physical

I see you have moved on
Our relationship like that is gone
You are happy once more
I feel rotten to the core
There's another man in you're life
Who one day may ask you as his wife
This makes me feel so blue
There's nothing I can do
You seem so happy with this guy
And all I want to do is cry
I still love you my dear
Each time I think about it I shed a tear
A tear I can't tell if it's happy or sad
I really should be very glad
You're happiness is all I wanted to this day
However I really do wish it wasn't this way
I want you back in my life my dear
I say this for every person to hear
If you were standing here for all to see
I would instantly drop down on a knee
You are the best part of my life
And I would want to make you my wife
But it will never be that way
For it's with him that you'll stay

And you failed miserably
You said you loved me
And would always be there
That we would be together forever
Then out of nowhere
You said you wern't ready
I should hate you, but I don't
So I gave you another chance at love
And you failed yet again
You convinced me I was the only one
But there was someone else
You cheated and you lied
You broke my heart
I should hate you, but I don't
So I gave you a chance at friendship
At this, you also failed
You kept sayin you still loved me
And told me you wanted me back
You said you'd do anything for me,
But you never have
I should hate you, but I don't

with strangling smog.
The constant noise
shatters peaceful scenes
of natural beauty.
The lights fracture
the looming darkness,
chasing it into
its own lonesome
oblivion. . .
The homeless mans
cup jingles with
coins, grasped by dirty
fingers which creak
a criminal runs,
a baby dies,
a mother cries,
a father arrested.
The willow bears
witness to all,
its tears float
above the ground,
kissing it softly.
Maybe, just maybe,
all of this is
why the willow weeps.

Blaine, lying on his stomach, rested his chin on his hand and looked down at the page of the book of poetry lazily. The book lay open on the naked back of Kurt, a few rays of sun filtering in and illuminating his pale skin.
"You should never stop reading poetry," sighed Kurt, clutching the pillow and his head turned toward Blaine. "You can make those boring words sound interesting."
"Poe's words are hardly boring, sir," commented Blaine, turning a page absently. Blaine's hand fell from the page and onto Kurt's skin, his fingers languidly tracing patters down his back, raising goosebumps o
Kristen vs VictoriaKristen had been planning. First off, she left the city. Even though nobody cop could take her in a fight, she knew Ashley could. Second, she went back down to 530 pounds. At 900 pounds she was getting so powerful to the point where just breathing can put a dent in whatever was in front of her. She figured out that her machine can also produce negative calories, which was only useful for the previous reason. Third, she figured out all of the functions of the nourishment machine, or what Kristen later found out was called the N-machine.

Even if you went and tore it apart
It would not hurt as much as me not being with you
Because in my heart and soul my love for you grew
I'm always here for you when you are sad
I never want it to be me that had made you mad
I want to hold you close in my arms
Away from any type of harm
You're all I ever think of
Please be with me my love

the whole house sears in white-purple motion:
the cat streaking for cover, the clock notioning out of time,
an earthquake worth of thunder rumbling through the ground.
Front to fronts, the cold sinks in through the North windows
pulling the last candle flames into taut slivers that shiver a story:
When the age of fire sputters,
when bulbs are shuttered and wires fray, we will lay
in silence, wrapped in the cold of ice-aged dreams.

A Rod/Nicky Avenue Q story.
*Rated PG I guess. This story is dedicated to Demona1 who won my 40,000 Kiriban and requested a Rod and Nicky story based on a conversation the two of us had last summer.
*Obligatory legal jargon is implied. You all know the drill. Don't own 'em. All non-profit, etc.
I think of myself as a logical person. I'm punctual, fastidious, precise like numbers. I'm a numbers guy. I'm no math genius or straight A student. But I love how consistent numbers are. They fascinate me. I put a lot of trust in them, in figures and formulae. They always add up. You never have exceptions to the rule, only unknown factors. So if you add 2 and 2, you will always get 4. No mystery.
I was a teenager at the time 17. Like every other almost-adult, I suffered through the necessary trauma of self questioning and found the figures didn't add up. Well, they added up, but the sum was a figure I was unwilling to acknowledge.

You're watching relationships that seem
Like they are meant to be
And the first thing you think is
That won't happen to me?
That somehow in this messed up world
There is no happiness to behold.
That every one has an angle,
A point to get across maybe it is all because
I can't see past these
These walls where there is no sunlight
There is no joy.

it's demeaning and disgusting for one
to love their own gender. How we
are encased and suffocated by the
chains of society's realms.
We have been brought up to believe
that a problematic equation would
be a gender in addition to the same
gender that it is ''weird'' for one
to embark on a relationship with
the same gender because it screams
and shrieks of abnormality.
I despise how people refer to being
''homosexual'' or a ''lesbian'' to be
disgraceful. The irony strikes me that
for a society that claims to be ''accepting,''
we have not made any progress
whatsoever in terms of same-gender
relationships, be it: boy and boy or
girl and girl.
Regardless of gender, they are all true
emotions. SO WHAT if a girl likes another
girl? SO WHAT if a boy likes another boy?
This is to our apparent ''accepting''
society that is refusing to acknowledge
how there is actually no abnormality in
Who are YOU to judge what is abnormal?

GLaDOS was displeased. Her unstoppable test subject was slowing down. The problem didn't seem to be physical; she had rested earlier, and her oxygen supply was laced with adrenal vapor. Judging by her past performance, she should have been able to keep going for several chambers, yet. Perhaps the trouble was psychological. Well, motivating a test subject to test was a science GLaDOS was well versed in.
"You seem to be slowing down, test subject. Is your weight finally getting the better of you?"
Chell ignored the AI, continuing her slow trek through the chamber.
Okay, so gentle taunts weren't working. Time for the guilt trip, if a murderer like her could even feel guilt.

In a private jet, which was now sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from overhead, a muscle car gloomily looked out the window at the sea below. He was completely drained of all energy, his eyelids heavy and his eyes were bloodshot. He sighed as he reached into a compartment in front of him and pulled out a pack of cigarettes, where he took one out, popped it in his mouth and gave it a light. He breathed in and then out, sending cigarette smoke curling lazily around his front bumper. Out of all the cars in the world, he should have felt far much better and had more of a reason to celebrate, since this successful mission was his own. The muscle car's name was Rodney Redline, or Rod Redli

It was three days later. Alyson relaxed in a jasmine-scented bubble bath, humming along to the music playing from her iPhone. The heat of the water soothed her aching joints. Absently, she lay her fingers across the scar on her stomach. She'd told no one about the scars, but a few found it curious that she'd become jumpy for "no reason" overnight. Sighing, Aly buried her thoughts and focused on cleansing her body.
Completely relaxed, she visualized a bright, white cleansing light just above her head, a healing energy. Then, she watched it move down through all seven main chakras, changing colors from red to purple as it went. At the base of her feet, just below it, the orb of light turned white again. Her body felt lighter, and she lingered in the moment before allowing the orb to travel back above her head. The thought of performing reiki on herself flashed briefly across her mind, but she stamped it out as quickly as it came, grounding herself and opening her eyes. She reached for th
