SugarSometimes I think my mother took thalidomide,Sugar3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Except the phocomelia struck my heart and not my limbs;
My hands, left all too capable, too strong perhaps
For one without two ventricles, or even one.
But that is not to say that monsters can’t be angels,
Angels monsters. My mercy is as heaven’s: by the coin,
One transient side to each unwanted fate, for no one
Is of saccharine, through and through.

Take a seat here and enjoy the show.
This is a review of the things that we find,
The things that we may not even want to know.
Some of these things are quite terrifying,
But some of the terrors are worth facing.
Some of these things will send your heart flying,
While others will easily send your mind racing.
We begin by going through the things we keep
On our mind all the time, the wonderful things.
The moments that sweep us off of our feet,
The ones where we feel like queens or kings.
These are the times where we laugh without fear,
Those times when our smiles can light up the world,
When our life can't be affected by anything we may hear,
And those thoughts that can make our minds madly whirl.
Next are the times where we struggle with life.
The terrors that slowly rip us apart.
The memories that are filled with strife,
And forever send pain coursing through our hearts.
It was then that we became utterly depressed
Or insanely wrapped up in the never-

Zori de praf se-aştern încet, încet

Aruncând umbre peste oraşul dement.

De mâine, juri, ai să faci ceva
Ai să te ridici, ai să fugi undeva
Ai să spui tot ce te-apasă, ai să fugi
Sub un soare viu, sub un cer senin
Ai să-ţi aminteşti să trăieşti
Ai să ştii să simţi, să iubeşti.
Încet, încet, încetişor
Dar nu azi. Azi e altă zi de beţie
De revoltă închisă-n suflet,
De-o frântură dintr-o nebunie.
O altă zi luminată de soarele
Desenat neîndemânatic pe perete
Te speli iar in noroiul din televizor
Te-nchizi între vise care, totuşi, dor.

Maybe if I look at those pictures every day, every time I want to cry, every time I want to just give in and die. Maybe then there will be a little less asking "why??".
Maybe if I replay that accidental voice message you left, over and over.
Maybe if I go through the messages I saved.
Maybe if I pull forward every memory I kept safe in my mind.
Maybe if I put on all my make up, dress all pretty, and act my sweetest. Maybe if I smile a lot, and use my soft voice. Maybe then your family wouldn't hate me so.

Anywhere you go
Whether it be across the world
Or right in my home
The smell of you hair and the touch of your skin
Is imprinted in my mind
If I close my eyes and think about you
I learn your not hard to find
Nothing will ever change between us
I've loved you from the start
No mountains, oceans, or distances
Can keep us apart
I want you to know that I've been faithful
I know you've been true to the test
Because if your here in my heart
Then you've never truly left

The media industry has been taken over by the geeks. The rise of the internet has allowed more and more adults to indulge in their love for cartoons, sci-fi and fantasy. This has in turn led to a rise in producers investing in nostalgic franchises, with revivals of classic series such as My Little Pony, The Muppets and Transformers proving to be big hits, and many more in the works.
One of the classic shows due for a revival is Inspector Gadget, with a new series confirmed to début sometime in 2013 . The original show, produced in 1983 by DiC Entertainment, was a major success during its original syndication, lasting 86 episodes and is still shown in reruns around the world. Little is known about the alleged new series at the time of writing, but this isn't the first time that the franchise has been revived, with previous attempts including two live-action films, three an

"No! Amy! You have to get up!" I scolded myself. "Where would it get you in life if you just laid around and did things the lazy way?"
I pulled myself up and jumped out of bed. "Working hard equals success, Amy!"
I marched into the bathroom and brushed my teeth. I combed my hair and arranged it into a neat pony tail. I saw how the tip of my hair reached my shoulders; it was growing. Then I quickly pulled on my work clothes which were a red shirt with the words "Juicy Fruity Smoothies" on it and some khaki shorts. I then checked out my appearance in the mirror.

Pebbles and cobblestones fill your pillow
And level all simple boundaries
Imagine for a moment
That they'll never know your name

In a place that never sleeps
The sounds of the street a quickening drum
To wake you from bad dreams
Believe me my friend
You'll get there someday
Time will soon descend
To take you to the city, far away

"I sure hope he does," Roland the Smeargle growled quietly in irritation.
