(1) In old stories we are informed of many wonders. Of famous heroes, of great struggles. Of happiness and festivals, of tears and lamentation. Of the strife between bold warriors, you can still hear about these things today.
(2) A noble girl grew up in Burgundy, There was none more beautiful in any land, Kriemhild was her name: She became a beautiful woman. Because of this many men would lose their lives.
(4) Her caretakers were three kings, noble and rich: Gunther and Gernot, the famous warriors, and the young Giselher, an excellent knight. The lady was their sister, the princes cared about her.
(13) In these noble surroundings Kriemhild dreamed. She was raising a falcon, strong, beautiful, and wild, Then as she watched, two eagles ripped it away from her. It was the most horrible things she had ever seen.
(14) She told her mother Ute about the dream. The best interpretation she could make of it was: "The falcon you are raising is a noble man, if God doesn't

German prayer to Wotan
Wotan, spin your hammer
that the lightnings sparkling spray,
when the horses pull your carriage,
through dark clouds.
Because of our diligent people,
the stranger's greed is big,
for many thousand years,
we fought for our eternal freedom.
This country wants only peace,
quarrels and disputes are unwanted.
All Germans want to work;
And calm after all that effort.
Come again to earth,
Arminius noble figure of light,
so that we find our eternal peace!
The foreign violence must end.
Days become brighter,
when the foreign force passes.
And in the light of the new morning,
a new time arises.
Order will be in the country,
our effort is worth it,
help the people to strengthen their spirit,
no one will need a shield or sword anymore.
This spirit should inspire us,
to fight for the German Good.
Let us all be united,
give the people courage!
Behind The "Truth"Behind every "just kidding" is a spark of liesBehind The "Truth"5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Right after every "it's not your fault" is a thought of "I told you so"
Underneath every "I'm fine" is a tiny whisper for help
Inside of all the "I don't want to talk about it's" is a beg for sympathy
Behind every "I love you." Is a desperate "Don't leave me."
All of the texts of "it's fine," are lies.
And all of the "whatever's" are "leave me alone's"
Inside of every fact there's a question
And with every lie comes an answer.
She's Beautifully GoneHe's wearing thin now,She's Beautifully Gone4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
thirsty for her daylight
to his tired eyes
He sat there,
heavy hearted and afraid
of the truth in her voice,
Replacing yesterday with
photographs and letters,
little by little.
Behind his eyelids, there are
fire works, embraces &
captured champagne kisses
-he's sure the bubbles still linger
In her hair.
Her smile is beautifully
Her eyes are perfectly
Slow motion memories.
It's painful to remember;
It makes him sick.
Sweet warm from Monday night,
still on his skin, left from her
promising caresses. He sits there,
waiting for days to fade, to wear away.
He can't forget her.

Was a girl I met on the
She knew not of the difference
Night or day
Or child's play
But whether or not she'll make
It past seven.
Was a girl with cold, dark
under her eyes, and bruises on her
She's spent weeks
On low peaks
Since her supplier's been getting' lazy
Wakin' at eleven.
Was a girl with no yesterday, and no
An angel who slept in old, dirty
Once turning heads
her body's dead
And all that's left of her is broken wings and empty
bottles of bourbon.

That was the agreement.
Yielding pink skin parting to whisper
"This only happens once."
Two years and I hear nothing from that careful mouth. Two years and not one of your fingers found a way to hit "send."
Unexpectedly your feet
you called them "pussy feet.")
carried you close
after two years.
I can't argue with the force in your words.
Two eyes that brighten to compliment the smile on that careful mouth when after two years all of your fingers wave, "hello."
Ten toes support a tentative step forward and two years are forgotten.

It wasn't long till she discovered
His promises were hollow.
He didn't love her.
The truth was hard to swallow.
And so he left
Afraid of the after.
She had to accept the fact

Think of anything,

Faceless InsanityThe horror, of sickening literature.Faceless Insanity4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With malicious insanity, shed so pure.
Behind her venomous eyes,
Beneath the wavering lies.
I declare sane on this blackened night!
For am I mad, because I feel no fright?
Wandering unto the dark side of my mind,
Though it's a twisted mystery, what I'm trying to find.
Complaints of morbid dread,
Writing vigorously to drive insanity out of one's head.
Concluding this pathetic, empty woman is broken!
As we ridicule each other for words unspoken.
A conspiracy theory, they all criticize.
If I am crazy, how much louder are my cries?
Do they ring dementia in your ears?
Causing your children, to cower in fear?
Tormented I am, conjuring my own misery.
Summoning my own demons, of purgatory.
I am condemned for all of my crimson pleasures.
Am I damned for all my gory treasures?
The anguish enclosing around me,
Cloaking me in it's embrace.
Yet it will always be very difficult,
For insanity has no face.

the forever in my never

Flip me over, flip me off
Take my heart out, rip me off,
Even raging tortures can't hear my apology.

Still, you wrap me in a world of wishing whispers,

BUDDIES WITH PERKS Pt 1

Mark Collins hit pause on the Tivo remote to answer his front door. As he suspected it was his good buddy Josh Taylor. Josh was tall, handsome and had a friendly smile. It was common for him to show up at Mark's front door on Saturday mornings with some odd treasure he had bought at a garage sale.
"You will not believe what I found at a garage sale today," Josh told him.
"Let me guess, is it another brand new TV remote that doesn't work any of the sets you or I own?" Mark asked.
"No, that was still a good deal though, it was only $5.00. This is a magic rock. Just hold it, make a wish and it comes true," Josh said.
"I wish you would stop wasting money at garage sales on junk," Mark said grinning.
"Its real man, I swear, come look at my new car," Josh said.

Thirteen year old Terry Norton looked in the mirror and winced. Until today, just an hour ago in fact, he had been a boy. Now he was a girl, a thirteen year old girl, thanks to his twin sister Tracey. His face, make that HER face, was smooth and round with high cheek bones and a cute turned up nose. She wore pink lipstick and her dark brown hair hung to her shoulders with bangs covering her forehead. She wore a pink tank top over a training bra that supported her barely 'A' cup breasts and a far too short (in her opinion) denim skirt. On her feet were wedgie sandals and her toe nails were painted red just like her fingernails.
"Oh Terri, you look so pretty. Maybe you can be my sister always, wouldn't that be fun? Of course then I'd make you look just like me so we really would be identical twins." The girl talking to her was her sister Tracey. They were twins but not identical. Terry was born male and until early this morning he had been very happy to be a boy.
