standing behind the wall;
i wonder of the people who
live/will live in that house now as i
stand yonder on the neighbor's
my face illuminated in a yellow
i wonder if they'd listen to my winding
stories; the nights i'd scream
back at my parents as they screamed
at each other -
the tornadoes and storms that ripped
through the back yard, leaving us untouched
but devastating others -
the christmas and easter mornings, good
times and bad, dreams and heartbreak
and so much cigarette smoke staining
the walls and my lungs.
(we were a good american family with
good american values and traditions,
i wonder if they'd listen to my twisting
roots, sitting calmly as i'd tell them
of the horrors of standing naked
in front of my mother to have her tell
me my body was wrong.
i've always been told that people
abuse in myriads of ways, but never
that the walls of my old home
would abuse along.
You Won't Control MeYou Won't Control Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You strangled me
As I snuggled into your hugs
I remember your joy
Toying with my lungs
I remember the excitement
The bruises you left
Told me to "look at the concept"
As you sneered at me, you never left
Oh I smiled as you burned my flesh
There I go thinking of the past, it's dead
Here I go feeling no peace, just dread
You'll never get to break me
Emotion's ran me deep
They had prevented me from sleep
I looked elsewhere ignoring them
And yet the emotions tried to brush my lips again
I want to tell you, my sweet emotions,
I used to be yours
The past is, the past
And little by little, I don't know you anymore
I remember how you buckled me
The ground felt so heavenly
Your needle pierced me deep
You held on tight
I waited on you; you never gave me the time
I remember the dead silence
The hard stop, as everything slipped
And suddenly all was balanced
The nothingness ringed
Your silence made me scream
There I go thinking of the past, it's a

The beach is my only piece of mind…
So with the waves lapping at my feet I relinquish myself, believing, truly feeling and believing for the first time in a very long time that this was the girl I was meant to be. The salty air I breathed made me feel alive, and that was something I had been lacking for far too long. The waved were chilly but not unbearable, and the nighttime city flickering with electrical problems behind me was a sight to see within itself. Sunnyshore was not always so sunny it seemed, not with its stubborn and ignorant gym leader blowing fuses and making things power out more than often. I didn’t mind however, since the blackness of the night made it possible to see the ships coming in the distance—things that the lighthouse once brought Cianwood’s small town.
I let it all go however. I was thousands of miles away from Falkner and Morty and the other gym leaders. I was free, I was untouchable, and I was whole. Jus
The JudgementIn the darkness of closed eyes,The Judgement9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
there is fear.
There is a chill
down the spine,
an unknown place.
This stillness is foreign
until the hand grasps yours.
"I will guide you.
Come with me."
In this perfumed hall
peopled by the Names of faith,
ruled by truth and justice,
where the great ordeal is carried out,
the soul stands terrified.
This great beast waits to swallow my heart
should I not be worthy.
This great beast waits to devour me.
This great beast may eat my heart.
"I will protect you.
I will ensure that you are fairly judged.
I balance the scale so that it tippeth not
unless it must.
I will speak for you."
When the feather's scale drops to the floor
the soul lightens.
The child of He of the Embalming Place
moves on, guided by her Father's hand.

It's fever season
and the city shutters
its walls and streets,
closes up shops
and drops an awning
over the river.
Pontchartrain is clogged
with yellow flies again
and the soft warning
of women's skirts
disturbs the dust.
Breathing does no good here -
the lungs still sag
in the heat
and skin is soon pocked
by travelers in the dark.
Each brick shifts and protests,
wondering what is wrong
and why no one
is growing old.
Only the doctor moves,
stepping on cracks
like a criminal
in search of miracles
After the silenceLike so many other civilizations, that ancient people had a myth explaining the creation of the world. Generation after generation, they learned that the entire universe was created by music. Just as the music fills the silence with beauty, one day, the harmonic vibrations of a composition had created structures in what was once the void. These vibrations reverberate until today in all matter, perceived as heat. Nobody knew the notes that made the miracle. So there was the fear that, if they were played backwards, they could undo all that was done.After the silence3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Aware of the legend, the shamans, in a time before the advent of writing, decided to hold all the music to themselves. They convinced the leaders of the villages that it was dangerous to be used by anyone, since the composition of the end of the world could be performed involuntarily. Thus, the art of music was banned, and musical instruments were forbidden, to teach or even speak about it was suppressed, becoming the biggest taboo.
ShatteredSilent. Everything was silent. It seemed as if the world around him had stopped. Froze, in that single moment when his world shattered. He began to slowly descend while the ice fell all around him, and the trap that he had carefully built for his enemy crumbled down in thousand of little pieces that reflected the sun like thousand little diamonds. But the beauty of this vision couldn´t cover the cruelty of what just happened.Shattered3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
He held her fragile body gently as if she could break into pieces in every moment. Yet he couldn´t stop the tremble in his body, and his breath that came out grasping as if he didn´t know how to breath anymore. The shock was too much for him to keep cool. Her blood was on his face.
It couldn´t be. Not him. He, whose only purpose was to protect her, to keep her safe, for he lived for her smile, for her smile that had the special power to make his black days alright.
He joined Shinigami Academy so that he could learn how to control his power, so

It was the morning scent of the blooming daffodils that carried on the cool breeze that nudged Link from the edge of embrace of sleep. The brilliant, radiant glow of the morning dawn, Link stood up and stretched, embracing the certainty that a new day had marched in to drive off the darkness. Suddenly he recalled last night's events, what had happened during the storm, frantically he looked around for Zelda...then it all made sense.
A dream....a passing, illusion of the mind.
But how? He questioned himself, how could such a vision be so.....real. He could nearly recall the bliss that lifted him off his feet, and the soft, caressing touch of her creamy skin. He accepted the fact, the mere lust seemed to slip away when he let it pass. The best way was to try to put your mind off, so he stretched, and stood up to the daylight. Slowly strolling down the pathways of the tree, the crisp sound of the clopping as his boots hit the oak, the honeydew that

She couldn't believe it. She didn't want to believe it. A few minutes ago, the man of her dreams, left her with just saying 'Goodbye'. The man of her dreams left her and didn't tell her where he was going. She wouldn't see him again. She tried stopping the tears flowing down her cheeks but she couldn't. Only one thing was on her mind; N.
Reshiram neatly landed next to White's house. The brunette shakily got down from her legendary teammate and got its Pokeball out of her bag.
Master, are you- before the Vast White Pokémon could continue, it was surrounded by the red light and sucked into its respectful Ultra Ball. She put it back in her bag and ran to her house.
She wanted to be alone. She didn't want to see anyone. She slammed the door open and ran upstairs to her room. Her mom barely saw her but she knew it was her.
The brunette shut and locked the door of her bedroom. She slowly walked to her bed and let her body fall on the soft sheets. She let her tears freely now roll
