Yin and Yang
An artist's soul
Two halves, each make
The other whole
One a façade
A mask to wear
To hide from sight
What's really there
The other's hidden
Out of sight
Where it shall never
See the light
To show the world
Within our words
And through our art
And music flowing
From the heart
We wish to say
But cannot seem
To find a way.

That I'm Gay.
My parents, family, and friends are homophobic they would hate me if they found out.
My dad would beat me.
I know because I saw the video before I was born he said to my mother's womb. "To my Unborn Child if you're gay I'll beat you till you die." My mother smiling and nodding as if silently saying that if I was gay she would not care if I died.
I'm 16 years old in 2 years I'll be free to leave this place and go to a place where I'm free to be me.
Where I can love whoever I want and when I find my one true love I'll even adopt a child.
To My Unborn Child
If you're Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender
I'll love you no matter what.

Hey! Are you free? Alec stared at his phone hopefully until Caleb responded:
Sorry I'm on my way to practice… ):
Alec frowned, flipping his phone shut and throwing it on his bed. He hadn't seen Caleb for weeks and it was starting to make him depressed. The last time he'd dropped Danni off at practice, Caleb had been passed out in the locker room. One of the instructors had told him it was the prodigy's hour break and that he'd been training there since 7 in the morning, so Alec hadn't woken him.
Alec looked up when someone knocked on the door to his room, breaking his train of thought.
"Alec? Can you take Danni to fencing?" His mom's voice called through the door. Alec wanted to see Caleb so badly, he immediately answered with a yes.
Danni didn't talk to him at all in the car or when they got to the fencing club. When he walked through the door he instantly looked toward the strips for Caleb. He was there, leaning against the

Of all the places to drop me off with a wave and a smile, a distinct lack of directions, why here, why now? Was there something I was supposed to do? If so, I hope it was accomplished by somebody else, because I doubt I was the one to do it. Is there something I'm supposed to do yet? If so, will I have the chance or do I need to forge my own way?
Of all the times to drop me off, why here? A world free of pirate ships and privateers, where there are only a handful of kings and queens and the revolutions can no longer be romanticized, due to media coverage. Stark pictures of violence and blood. But also beautiful pictures of hope and the quest for freedom, signs in a language I can't understand.
Of all the places to drop me off, why here? I've been to Israel, I've been to London and Paris and Toronto. New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Atlanta. So why here? Why did the ribbons of fate twist in the directions they did, across states and years and schools a
PleaseI want you to love mePlease3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A little like I love you.
Like lovers kissing
For the first time that
It sets the world on fire.
And I plan to burn down
With it because I keep failing
To realize that I'm more than
Just a body for you to touch,
A body for you to hold.
You arms around my ribs
Makes me feel so fragile,
But so safe that I could not
Possibly break while you
And I can feel you hand slipping
From mine even though I beg
You to stay because I hate
The word goodbye and how
You look as you walk away.
I want you to remember me
When you arrive.
And I want you to remember me
When you leave me behind.
Midnight DanceYour fingers slide in between mine,Midnight Dance3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Our hands perfectly entwined.
Your arm wraps tenderly around my waist,
As you whirl me around and we trace
imaginary patterns on the floor.
Everything about you I adore,
as my head lies gently on your shoulder,
And we dance a dance that is older
Than time itself.
Your scent engulfs my mind,
And brings with it memories so refined,
Filled with pure emotion,
To you I promise complete devotion.
My senses are drowned out,
So that there is no room for any doubt,
Past worries and fears I twirled
As I fell into another world.
Hope and love fill my heart
As we perfect this dying art.
My dreams fall into place,
Made real by the smile upon your face.
And as we dance,
Our minds filled with true romance,
I mirror your movements
As we step backwards and forwards
To the slow, steady rhythm inside our heads.
We Will Never BeI met you on August 18th of 2008.We Will Never Be3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I remember how hot it was in the classroom
That day and how your eyes widened with confusion
As I sat down next to you.
I will never forget those eyes.
You loved Mondays and dreaded Fridays.
I thought you were crazy and you told
Me that the only reason was so you
Could see me in school.
I still thought you were crazy.
We would do our math assignments on the
Playground and talk about our lives.
We were so different, but you always
Insisted that we were absolutely perfect.
I wish I would have known how right you were.
I miss you so much that I can't sleep.
But I have to keep moving because you
Promised me that we would be again, remember?
You held my hand for a second too long and
Told me that you would see me tomorrow.
And I believed you because your eyes had that same
Warm look in them that you always got when
You would tell me something important.
I've seen you three times since then, and we

At one time I thought so
But never before had I felt
The earth cry with me
For so long I had missed
Not only its tears of sorrow
But Its hands reaching out as if to say
"I'm with you"
All it took was a moment
The breeze carrying messages
I so long had missed
The wind whips like a sigh
Thunder, a shout of joy
It knows it's not alone
I'm not alone
You're not alone

Ib walked into her school, forced to squeeze her way through the corridors to her first class: art. It was time to see if the substitute teacher was any good. As she settled down into one of the chairs, she looked around and saw that there was no one. She sighed; that was a good start. She had arrived before the teacher himself.
"I am so sorry I'm late I-" A roughly twenty-year old man with fascinatingly purple hair and a maimed blue coat stopped as he took in the fact that there was only one girl here, "Ah. How are you Ib?" He said with a smile and said girl looked up immediately from her book. Garry frowned; who was Ib? How could he possibly know her name? If it was her name; it probably wasn't. Although, come to think of it, 'Ib' wasn't a very common name in the first place. Garry didn't even know it existed; yet the name had felt so familiar and normal rolling over his tongue. Anyway, it would only make matters worse if the girl responded.

Tell me what you see
What you see with your eyes
What is deep in your mind?
I'll stay in my disguise
You're not looking at the real guy
The real guy is hiding inside
Talk to me and you'll regret all the lies
Stop judging from a distance
Come close so we can be friends
But truthfully, because hypocrisy will make us enemies
Then I'll start thinking you're a fiend
If we understand and accept each other
We can become closer, even like brothers
Until then, go to your good friends
Even though I'm the real friend you could have gained
These Four WallsThese four walls look at me with unsympathetic eyesThese Four Walls3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
While I stare back blankly, longing for blue skies
Wondering at the absence of anything tangible
A white mist fills the room, dreamy, peaceable
And I scream at the walls I cannot decipher
Longing, lusting, wanting, needing-
I want to feel not sleep nor dreaming
But, rather, the chill of a Russian winter,
The roasting inferno of Hell and Purgatory
The shiver of pain, of living and being real
These all tell a morbid, sordid story
But 'tis a better thing than to kneel
To Build A HopeThere is a place without joy. It is the end of everything. A hollowed tree filled with needles and lighters, nails and razor blades and cigarettes embedded in rotten lungs. A painting without edges, born of monsters and shards of might-have-beens. There is a place where a child used to play, a child that lasted for a billionth of a blink. There is a place and it is my mind.To Build A Hope3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There was a time when I did not sleep. When my feet drummed on spiked gravel from dawn till dawn. When the numbers on a counter dictated everything I consumed. When a bite of lettuce meant an extra 50 crunches. Food was life and life was food and life was not living. Living meant hell trapped within my head in a place without joy. There was a time I was dying.
There was a bed and a skeleton. 12 stabs in each arm to find a shrivelled blood vessel. Drip. Drip. Drip. "This will give you strength," they said. "This will make you fat," I heard. Drip. Drip. Drip. And the radio crackled and sang. Crackled and sang a

No one cares about you, or why you act so proud.
No one knows who you are, you're just another face,
You could just disappear without a trace.
The blood red sky in your mind's eye,
It's always there but you don't know why.
You're just a part of a bigger whole,
And your heart is as black as coal.
You play dress-up with your top hat and cane,
But you can take it off and disappear again.
You're never noticed no matter what you wear,
It's a source of their contempt and your despair.
You could just disappear right now,
No matter who what when where why or how.
ClownYou became a puppetClown3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing more than just a clown
Jumping from here to there
Smiling until your tears make you drown
And you get flashback of the past
That cold November night
When the winds shattered your hopes
It was forbidden to dream of light
You can't help it
You bleed your tears away
The owner of your soul is wanted
Your ship is so far from this bay
You've got nine lives
But you're left with one
Who will take it?
Its killer is unknown
You're a puppet
Nothing more than just a clown
When you cry,
You never leave a sound

Have you ever felt.... like you didn't belong?
Like your whole life has been a lie?
Well you have...
You didn't feel the connection between your family...
All you felt was loneliness....remorse...hatred.... nothingness...
You've always known that they weren't truly your family..
You didn't look anything like them at all...
They had dark hair and dark eyes while you had blond hair and grey eyes that dulled with every passing second..
They knew nothing about magic...while you went to a magical school, Hogwarts...
They were happy and outgoing..while you stayed in the dark and stayed quiet. You read you books while your siblings hanged out with their friends....and not once did they think to invite you...
So much for a family...
You wished you knew your real parents....maybe even your real siblings...

I dare not raise my voice
Peering into the dark
That lies in front of me
What will come out next,
To grab my cold bare ankle
And drag me into Hell?

You stand there, arms open-
I run into them-
Your hands on my throat,
Your face twisted in a smile
And the darkness

RecoveryI feel like I had to recover from you for far too long. I've curled up with this pan in a hospital bed trying not to spit out the bile that is empty as you are, and the bacteria manifests, as I cling to the saline, but the disease eats it all up and morphine only pushes you further in. I'm itching at the IV, but I know I depend on it too much. I'd stand if I could only avoid swaying like the ocean. The sheets are stiff and cold, and in here-the chirps and tweets are not from the birds outside. And I then discover.Recovery3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Words of rebuke and of love,
And dreams of flying up above

Just the TruthYou found me a stranger,Just the Truth3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A man no more familiar to you,
Than you to him.
Time eroded boundaries,
Pushing you closer,
Creating bonds everlasting.
Feelings grew from the start,
Uncertainty warping logic,
Allowing Fear to conquer.
With loneliness sprouted dedication,
A fire burning within,
Conquering foolish doubts.
New meetings presented opportunity,
The truth delivering itself immaculately,
Reaping the reward of your love.
Through the burdens of the past,
Through the uncertainties of the future,
I just need you to stay.
