Run Away With MeRun Away With MeRun Away With Me1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
To the mountains far
and the oceans wide.
Take my hand.
Down winding paths,
a road; unpaved.
It doesn’t have to mean much…
With an engine roaring in our ears,
summer’s breeze blowing our hair.
Look at me. Smile.
Leaving the past so far behind
I forgot to ask directions—
Your hand meets mine as I shift
First gear; gets us running
Second gear; gets us going
Third gear; don’t think now
Fourth gear; down the on-ramp
fifth; look at me. smile.
What do I look like now
an adventure? am I fun?
Close your eyes
if only for a moment

Sadly AloneLoneliness and sorrow were sitting at the parkSadly Alone2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
When sorrow noticed it started getting dark
So he leaned down to lonileness and he said
"I'm going to go home, and cry in my bed"
Loneliness shook her head, and whispered a plea
"Just a little longer, would you stay here with me?"
With that said, sorrow wouldn't leave just yet
They both sat and watched as the sun began to set
Then loneliness said, in a cheerful tone
"when you are with me I'm not so alone"
Sorrow laughed gently and said with pure glee
"when we are together you make me happy"
So happiness and friendship sat at the park
After the night became very dark
They spoke with each other up until dawn
And now loneliness and sorrow are forever gone

I RememberI remember those blue-grey eyes that watched me with curiosityI Remember2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When life used to mean a little something more to her.
When living was more than just breathing in and out.
The darkness I drifted into, and the lights that faded away.
People in her life used to give her joy, now only give her pain.
I remember the first time I ever got high--
The new places that I was shown,
I felt exhilarated.
I could open my mind.
I finally felt free.
I remember that neighbor girl whom I adored so much.
The silky and sheen golden river that was her hair,
The sweet tintinnabulation that was her laughter.
That big, orange and white moving van that took her away.
I remember how it all went down.
I remember sitting next to another one—one who claimed more broken than me.
I can still see the blue of her eyes and the light brown shade of her hair.
I used to read her favorite book to her.
There was a certain ring to her voice when she would say she loved me.
I remember the day we decided to grow illegal p

and they seemed to match the atmosphere when we would sit at park tables,
eating our words with silver spoons
and sitting next to each other rather than across because we didn't like the rules
of platonic relationships.
You were left handed and your fingers and elbows would sometimes
accidentally collide with mine and you apologized
and I said that it was okay
when I really wanted to beg for more.
The truth was that I only ever wanted to know you and
touch your jaw and your fingers
and your elbows and your collar bones but that was not
appropriate for park tables and silver spoons
and you only wore cardigans around people who you thought of as just friends
and nothing more

we brush our teeth,
workout everyday all the while forgetting
that these temporary mechanisms,
these compilations of pleasures and blood,
of bones and bruises,
of vessels and kisses are just hosts

I am here to talk about
a boy that I loved.
The one I held in my hands
like a baby as he breathed like
a leaf sunburned by the June sun
he held on to me,
more than physically,
begging me to understand that we, as human beings
are not bodies with souls,
but we are instead souls

A crippled man walk through this hall
He passed the mute who told me lies
About birds who swim and fish that fly
Then the mime who shouts his act
Turned to me to face his back
Pulled a knife from his gun holder
Aimed and shot me in the shoulder
The stab wound blistered like a burn
I fell to the ground and stood stern
The armless woman reached for my hand
The police were called by the mute man
When they came they arrested me
For his crimes, the mime was set free
And the blind man just there stood in awe
At what he’d seen inside this hall

"Oh I kind of remember this. But why are we here?" Maka questions, looking around the gothic styled room.
"I'm always here when I'm not conscious. Sleeping, knocked out, etcetera, etcetera." Soul explains. "At least that damn little ogre isn't here this time." He says looking where he usually saw the grinning demon near the record player.
"Oh " Maka sighs. She remembered their battle with Crona, how Soul jumped in front of her to save her from Crona's blade. If he hadn't he never would have become infected with the Black Blood, and he wouldn't have to suffer the way he did afterwards. And he wouldn't have that scar. Maka gets a tear to her left eye to the thought, catching Soul's attention.
"Maka, whats-?" He asks.
"Its my fault. That you have to go through all this If I wasn't so weak when we fought Crona, you wouldn't you wouldn't " She begins to say before choking up and almost breaking down. Soul walks to her

kindergarten, my teacher caught me
nestled between crayons, and towers of neatly
stacked voodoo drawings, darting to find
the perfect color, saying, "Mommies f-f-feed
their babies through the b-b-belly button;
that's why I have one. But they cry,
I c-c-cried, because I came out of my mommy's

that day; the teacher explained that
I was s-s-stammering a lie and it needed

let my scarf darken under the reign of
a lightning-mustachioed sky,
bellowing a thunderous roar

A small girl, no older than six, sat with her mother and father by the pond in the middle of the Death City Park.
Frogs croaked from the top of water lilies as they hopped from one to another. Dragonflies and butterflies flew about, gliding from lily pad-to-lily pad, flower-to-flower. Birds chirped and sang to their visitors from atop the high trees in the park; the sun peaking through its branches and leaves.
The girl smiled and pointed at a butterfly resting on a nearby flower. She, a bit un-swiftly, ran over to the flower, scaring the butterfly away in the process. She ran after it as it flew around the park and eventually flew too high for her to keep up, so she gave up. When she stopped she realized she was a great deal away from her parents. She glanced around and couldn't find them, but only found a small figure sitting against one o

A young grey haired man walks down the street, with a bag over his shoulder in hand. He looks up and sees the grinning sun, it always creeped him out, and especially with the day to come, it was no real comfort. He walked past the townspeople, as though even as if nothing ever changes in a world you leave, or return to. The man looks at the train times, nothing leaving until 3:30, another hour. He walks into the train station, ready to leave this world behind.
"God why " Maka cries, crunching into a ball on her bed. She was finally fully awaken. She had when Soul was speaking. She had heard the song, but was still unable to move to sit up, but she wishes she could have. "Where is he? Is he still here?" Maka frantically asks to the group. Liz and Tsubaki look to Kid and Star, who both look down, avoiding the crying girl in the bed.

His head was killing him and he felt dizzy and tired. He had no idea where Maka was, but vaguely recalled her telling him she was going shopping with Tsubaki.
He shook his head. He would never understand girls and shopping. Soul was the only one who saw her real clothes. He didn't understand why she bought so much of something no one ever saw.
Groaning, he rolled out of bed and clutched a chair while he waited for the world to stop spinning. It didn't. He stumbled through the hallway and into the kitchen and poured a glass of water. Remembering Maka's advice from last time he was sick, he sipped the water a little at a time. His throat still felt dry.
He leaned on the counter for a moment and realized he had nothing to do. He didn't feel like going anywhere, he didn't want to talk to anyone, and he certainly d

He cruppled the note into his large hands. "What in the world is she thinking it's dangerous to be out without protection" He panicked a little. He wondered where she could have been and why she was out at such a late time.

spewing pretty metaphors at me,
for with each elaborate comparison,
I feel a bit more
detached from this world
And maybe I don’t feel so strong at the moment,
but would you be
if you felt like the entire universe
was resting upon your shoulders,
and someone was just there saying:
But you’re stronger than the powerful beats
of a butterfly’s wings
And maybe I do need more confidence,
but would you exuberate it
when the part you hated most about yourself
were the freckles that have speckled your face for years,
and someone was just there muttering:
They’re not flaws,
but rather stars that form constellations
Yes, I can’t help but hate
all those unrealistic metaphors
you choose to pelt at me when I’m low,
yet the irony is,
I know that those beautiful words
are realistic in your eyes,
So I can’t hate you.

Don't let me fall out of myself again, the parts might fit together, but the breaks are never clean.
Sometimes I feel like glass in the middle of a war zone, just the sound of goodbye may destroy me.
I've picked up the pieces before, cut myself with shards of who I was, carefully pasted them together with who I am, hoping no one would notice.
The trouble is the masking tape I used, doesn't seem to mask anymore.
The trouble is I leave tiny bits of myself behind me, just so I can be found.
The trouble is my heart is made of clay and it might just break with one more fall.
Maybe that's the wonder of me, even once i've broken…I can break again.

"Maka please talk to me." Soul continued to beg.
"No! This is your fault!" Maka tried to hide the tears falling down her cheeks from Soul.
"My fault?... Ugh. Maka, just please stop fighting with me."
Maka wiped the tears from her eyes and looked to her friend, he seemed just as tired, if not more tired then she was.
"Just please come here, it's getting dark." He motioned to the 'shelter' he made for them.
Lord Death had sent the two on a mission after a man who's soul had turned into a kishin egg, but unfortunately, neither of them clued in to where they were, so they were lost, and they lost their target. Maka blamed it on Soul since she was the one running, which lead them to a fight. While she was off crying, Soul tried to make a shelter for them to use since it was almost dark, but Maka was being stubborn and wouldn't get in it.
