Tails leaned against the tree at the edge of the forest. He folded his hands on his stomach and sighed as his eyes made their way to the night sky. He could see the millions of tiny dots that lit up the heavens, creating its constellations and making the entire dark blue canvas more beautiful than it already was.
However, Tails' mind was far away from the magnificence of the stars as he remembered times past, spent in the sky and traveling with familiar companions. Some he still saw on a daily basis while others...
"I wish you were here," he sighed again as he closed his eyes and tried to remember happier times.
His thoughts focused particularly on one person who had journeyed with them on their last adventure. He could still remember when he first met her, how he had been entranced by her eyes, her figure, her voice. Her voice, he thought. It could make his heart burst out of his chest like a flower.
He chuckled as he remembered the fun times they had together, especially w
Love was my mistakeWhat hurts me the most,Love was my mistake2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is the fact that I care.
I care so much,
My heart breaks.
The pain in my chest will never go away,
Never, until my dying day.
My dearest love, how could you go?
Leaving me here to die alone.
I loved you so,
Yet it wasn't enough.
If you told me so,
I could change.
I lived off of lies,
The lies that I once believed.
I guess that it is no use anymore,
I have figured out my mistakes.
Who was once my true love,
I shall never forgive you,
Not after what you have done.
Yet life must go on,
With you here or not.
I won't let it kill me,
I know what it's worth.
The lies you fed me,
Day after day.
Yet you still say,
I'm the one to blame?
I'd rather think not,
As I know the truth.
I knew I was wrong,
For ever loving you.
Quotes IIIIts amazing how much somebody can break your heart and still you love him or her with every broken piece of it. Its when your mind says let go but your heart tells you to hold on. Its when your mind says be still but your heart screams go on. Its when your mind says lets leave but your heart whispers lets stay. Its when your mind says this isnt right but your heart knows no other way. Stuck? Some would say the best thing to do is move onQuotes III6 years ago in General More Like This
Theoretically speaking: accepting and trying to move on sounds easy right? But application of that theory simply means: die first and live again! When do you move on anyway? You move on when your heart finally understands that there is no turning back. You just have to accept the fact that some things can never be and that you should be contented with things as they are. Leaving is a choice. Staying is a choice. But you can never really ask someone to stay or to leave. Its a choice they have t

QuotesHave you ever felt that feeling whenever you see someone, you freeze and your heart starts to beat so fast and you have to hold on to something so you wouldnt fall? Sometimes when they talk to you, do you utter stupid words and end up embarrassing yourself? Its not that you want it, but just the presence of that person makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time. Would you be brave and admit your feelings? What if its simply not meant to be, do you give up? Or keep trying and end up with nothing? Well, thats love. Its irony speaks, but you got to take risks to get answers. When you meet someone and you gradually fall in love with that person, try to express your love to her because every moment you wasted would be equal to tons of regret in the end. Dont wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they are gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry they wont hear you anymore.Quotes8 years ago in Teen More Like This

Your promises kept~
Breaking Breaking Breaking
I tried to hold those hopeful words you said
But you've always managed to hurt the both of us in the end
Our tears shed~
Seething Seething Seething
Down and away like liquified memories of regret
While every stinging mistake rushes back and quickly spreads
My hands left~
Trembling Trembling Trembling
I find myself feeling lost in this inner emptiness
As all my love for you continually escapes from my chest
This is our last resort / Please, don't say it's so
There's no trusting me anymore / Please, you don't have to go
We tried, but it just can't work / Then I swear that I will change
I lied, and made everything worse / Then give us more time, and just wait
I don't want to make you cry ever again / I'd rather have you than nothing
I can't stand being the source of your pain / I want you to know that you're my everything
I know you're better off without me / But I will

Words on paper

conscious and subconscious
painted on the wall
Call on your conscience
Monsanto's is poisoning your Kids
in your subconscious
the government poisons your head
The FDA feeds you lies
'cause there's no money in the cure
Honeybees can't pollinate
Bayer, there's more you should know
and even less you can trust
Look out the end game is clear.
Global warming or climate change
fossil fuels refined
subconscious; we only have one earth, what should we do ?
Lovers wear blinders
the rich are still fat
conscious, help us
Population control is a fact.

The Unseen Life
I thought pain was created to fade
But it seems like my life was crafted to break
So I apologize to the mirror and say "I'm sorry, it's too late."
I can't even look at my own face, as I can never accept my mistakes
I realize that I am brokenly made
My mind bleeds away the memories I've wasted
Remorse begins to slowly fill in the gaps that are left
This stained razor blade leaves every dark moment perfectly divided
I try not to indulge in act of prayer, because I refuse to ever confess
Even in death I will never rest
All visible colors descend into the ground
And time drifts off to sleep
Every sharp outline ascends into the clouds
As this reality begins to dream
This world has truly abandoned me
I keep on doing what I've done
So I can't deny that I've forsaken hope
I couldn't stop the emptiness once it had begun
But I had no other choice, because I was left alone
All I have ever had was myself to disown
Dawning self-hatred with no e
The DrowningTo the lake of dead serenity, so harsh, wintry, and pale, my sinking ship grudgingly dances without a single, tarnished sail.The Drowning1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
For I am utmost weary and always searching a way to my coming demise; never displayed in the public's horrid view, I truly loathe their lively cries.
I swim to the bottom, around the dead bodies, never glancing up to eye the land again; the water calls to me, whispering my existence, it's now the clock to determine the pain.
A tombstone and shackles sleep endlessly down, to them I see the way, I stand in Death's hands, so brittle yet immense; my drowning is initiated today.
The shackles clench tightly to my sickly ankles, the tombstone etches the placement and roll; assuring not a breath is drawn from my body, I clench the organs from my very soul.
The final glimpse of dark moonlight shatters, darkness gives way to my closing eyes; a bubble implodes on the rotting surface, Death's toll had been paid without the lies.
Can't Go On Without YouBaby I know it took some time,Can't Go On Without You1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
For me to realize
That my love for you is true
And i can't go on without you.
How come I never saw it before?
I didn't see it 'till you walked out that door
Since then I've been missing you
Now I know what not to do,
I won't let you go this time,
Because I know I won't be fine.
I can't believe we let us go
But this isn't just some show,
me and you are something more
And I wanted to let you know.
Baby I know it took some time
For me to realize
That my love for you is true
And I can't go on without you.
This time we'll make it work
No matter how much it hurts
We wont mess it up this time
Because you're meant to be mine
I want you in my life
I want you in my arms
I want to hold you close
And never let you go.
I know this doesn't really rhyme
But I had to show you why
I need you in my life
And I'm glad we have this chance to make it right.

Commas Before AND in a SeriesIn American English usage, a comma should precede and with three or more items in a series.Commas Before AND in a Series3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Example: I would like to order a salad, a sandwich, and dessert.
Newspapers and magazines do not generally use this rule, as print space is too valuable to use on what might be considered extraneous punctuation. However, print publications will use the final comma before and if it is needed to avoid confusion.
Example: Her $10 million estate was split among her husband, daughter, son, and nephew.
Omitting the comma after son would have led the reader to believe that the son and nephew had to split one-third of the estate (each receiving one-sixth), rather than understanding that each relative received one-fourth of the estate.

Nightmare: The Tragic Lover
In the silence
I can hear the lyrics
Of my mind's awareness
You're hidden from the world
Only to be known by me
My fate is foretold
You're the end that I wait to see
The remnants of rust consume
The taint covering my heart seeps through
I am dying from a cancer that was caused by you
All it took was a wound
From the kiss that would seal it soon
I just wish that I could take you down too
From something so blissful / Bore a mask of deceit
I remain so resentful / I don't know what to believe
A being that could damage / A feeling that could heal
You pushed me over the edge / You made me wish it was real
I find myself pathetic
That you were just an anesthetic
I used you until you fulfilled your purpose
Now I don't know who the real monster is
What have we really become of this?
One whose heartless and the other is painless
These dark mirrors
Are the protective barriers
Of the true lies of one another
You were my angelic desire
A hope that I h

Temptation is immune to rejection
Yearning for the taste of a blurred salvation
Thirst is my disgraceful enemy
And sometimes it gets the best of me
Thoughts caught up in warfare
Arguing with the worst side of my personality
These dark circles around my eyes lead nowhere
The center of it is the source of my frailty
Isolation is the last resort
The final stand against another end
But only until reality distorts
And then there's nothing left to defend
Bottom of a bottle / Bevel of a needle
Betrayal of a lifestyle / Blessing of a smile
Immersing my mind in numbness
Temporarily freed from this destiny
The cruelty fades into darkness
I indulge in this sensation heavily
Forcing a long-awaited blackout
I feel that it's desperately needed
And when my tired eyelids come down
The power of my pride will finally be defeated
Dependency is fueled by weakness
Once broken- I become shapeless
I abandoned all insecurities
So here's a toast to the death o

I'm a little distracted and sleepy right now as I have a lot on my mind and didn't get very much sleep last night, but maybe a little writing exercise will put me in better form.
Well, another strange snippet of a memory just came back to me. As is usually the case with these sorts of recollections I can remember a few highlighted seconds and I have a loose web of vague impressions holding them together, more or less, into a sort of situation or short series of events. Well, it may not sound like much, but great events from the ancient past have been chiseled out of the marble of history using considerably less. Maybe with a little deductive reasoning and common sense I can flesh this one out with a certain degree of reliable accuracy.
This happened back over 30 years ago, between '81 and '83 I believe. I was at Santa Monica beach. I don't recall who I went with, who was with me, but I usually went with someone else. I did upon rare occasions go all by myself, but I don't recall that

How you taunt me so.
Plump from my ideas,
With none for me to show.

So messy in my head.
Each scrap a banquet,
Each page a tasty treat.
You grin at my failure
And swell from my defeat...

Who thought a heart could break this quickly?
One glance, one stare
Did you even remember that I was there?
Your eyes locked on her face
Who thought a heart could crumble into decay?
There are so many things I want to say
So many things I want to scream in your face
So many tears I tried to hide
When I said I felt better, could you tell that I lied?
Could you tell that this is eating away at me?
The image won't go away
I try to remind myself of happiness and glee
But I remember when you were with her, and not me
Now you tell me you love me, I trust you with that
And I want you to know that I love you too
But seriously, I'm starting to feel insecure
I want you to know that I love you, and only you
But, please tell me, could you tell me that too?

According to a new Thomson Reuters survey of women in management at firms between 2005 and 2010, it appears that technology companies are remaining tight-lipped about their efforts to 'promote' women.
An analysis of the survey by the Huffington Post shows that, when compared with other sectors, technology firms aren't as open about reporting how many women they employ. Only nine of the 254 tech companies included in the study shared the breakdown of women among their overall work forces and management teams. Of those that submitted data, the researchers found that women occupied 15% of management positions at tech companies in 2010, compared with 33% in financial services and 34% in health care.
In fact, the number of women in the IT field and those who are heading to college to pursue technology degrees is actually on the decline.
Women control more than 83 percent of all consumer purchases, including 66 percent of home computers, and they outpace men when it comes to buying consumer

Remember being little?
Hard to believe we were ever small enough that people could actually pick us up and carry us around.
I remember when I was really little my uncle Frank used to give me...I think they call them "airplane rides"? I don't remember what we called them, but he would spin around real fast while holding me by the hands or forearms. It would be pretty hard to find someone who could do that to me now though.
I remember back when I was in kindergarten I had fallen off of the top of the monkey bars and landed flat on my back. If something like that happened to me now I'm sure a few bones would have been broken. I remember the teacher holding me up in her arms as she told the other kids she had to take me too the nurse's office. Amazing that I was so light a young woman could pick me up and carry me around so easily. But we were all little once.
