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
and, oh, so

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

All the things he's doing, the seem so wrong

It makes me worry, were this life will lead

I wonder how long this would last

The only blind one here is you!
I've seen it all, and suffered through the pain
Even if I can't see it, I still feel the rain
So ask yourself who's blind and who's not
Cause I can see your chances are shot!

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."

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.

A tear streams down my face.
I'm sitting right next to you,
but you have no idea.
I'm always there for you,
but have you been there for me?
All I do is give,
and all you've done is take.
I can only be so strong,
and I can only give so much,
before I crumble and break.
Is this how you treat someone who cares?
'Cause if it is,
I'd rather go back to when I didn't.

Even if you went and tore it apart

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

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?

Argonner Wald um Mitternacht - Argonner forest at midnight
by an anonymous soldier 1915
Argonner Forest, at midnight,
A sapper stands on guard.
A star shines high up in the sky,
bringing greetings from a distant homeland.
And with a spade in his hand,
He waits forward in the sap-trench.
He thinks with longing on his love,
Wondering if he will ever see her again.
The artillery roars like thunder,
While we wait in front of the infantry,
With shells crashing all around.
The Frenchies want to take our position.
Should the enemy threaten us even more,
We Germans fear him no more.
And should he be so strong,
He will not take our position.
The storm breaks! The mortar crashes!
The sapper begins his advance.
Forward to the enemy trenches,
There he pulls the pin on a grenade.
The infantry stand in wait,
Until the hand grenade explodes.
Then forward with the assault against the enemy,
And with a shout, break into their position.
Argonner Forest, Argonner Forest,
Soon thou willt be a quiet cemeta

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.

Knife to my chest,
Strike a match,
Light a candle,
Baby you know the rest.
We're going down this road together,
You've got my head in a whirl,
I'm so confused,
What to do about you girl.
You scare me,
Make me laugh, smile, and cry,
You make me feel alive,
And I think I know why.
The atmosphere is calling for rain,
And I'm going to pour my heart out,
My heart's popping out of my chest,
And the pain inside my chest makes me want to shout.
You went straight to my heart,
Put it back together,
When it had been torn apart,
Please stay with me forever.
You started up my broken heart,
Fixed it up so now it beats again,
I'm so glad you did so,
The emptiness was making me insane.
If it weren't for you I'd be dead,
Out of the fight.
I love you,
So pull the trigger baby,
And light up the night.

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.

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.

Since at the grenadiers,

There´s noone being as faithful,

And noone is as beautiful,

Not even the captain himself,

My heart is leaping for joy,

Of our battalion.
At Whitsun, we will celebrate,

There´s none as happy as you,

hollowed out logs lugged towards

I am from the muscular cupped hands
that only those whose palms have the look
of the patchwork of handiwork can carve
and caress a staked splinter out of my arm,

And when you think you're getting somewhere
I turn you down and walk away.
It's not your fault you're not perfect--

I don't understand why.
Can you not see the broken tears around you?
That's just not for me.
I'd rather be single and free
Than be chained down by someone who isn't right for me.
If you're trying to woo me, try again.

"Come in!" Pete shouted as Rod knocked on the door. He opened it and drove in, his eyes looking down at the ground. He didn't want Pete to know he had been crying, since it would have been embarrassing for his director to see that his top agent had broken down.
"So, what did the wife say?" he asked, not looking up from the work he had at his desk. Rod had decided on his way to the office that he would not talk about his wife, since he didn't want any sympathy and it was no real business of Pete's anyway.
"She said I could go," Rod said, playing it off that everything had worked out when they met. He wished that all had gone well, that his wife kissed him and told him everything was all right, and that she loved him. But that was far from the truth.
"Good, good!" Pete said happily, then reached into a filing cabinet behind him and pulled out a large manila folder, placed it on the desk and opened it. The front said, "Classified" in big red letters, meaning that thi
