There was a bear, covered in hair,
lead by a rope at the county fair
they'd crack the whip and he'd do a flip
but he just couldn't take it and he lost his grip
He ate little girls with bouncing curls
He dined on a mayor and two visiting earls
So the keeper said, "Run!" and he pulled out his gun
He took aim and muttered, "This bear's days are done."
"Wait!" came a cry from down near his thigh
'don't kill this bear--I don't want him to die!"
The shout of denial came from Anthony Kyle
who thought killing the bear would be terribly vile.
"You never gave him a chance! You just made him dance!
I'd crack too if I had to constantly prance!"
Said Anthony Kyle, with a shy little smile
"You should have found out his wishes once in a while."
The bear growled, "Love--I just wanted love.
You just cracked that whip and you push and you shove.
I wanted a smile, once in a while,
but got one from no one but Anthony Kyle."
The little boy grinned at his new friend,

Doi tineri işi nenorocesc plămânii,

A luat-o în braţe
Continuă să fumeze,

Sun Dust and Sweet Shadows
It is seven o'clock AM.
Five hours after we walked in the door
and two hours before the end of this poem.
Thinking back -
it was a long, drunken night
and full of those games
that drunk people play.
And for the final game,
I played the gentleman and gave her my bed
while I slept on the couch.
I never liked this couch -
and I like it even less when I'm stuck to it
with sweat and the dirt of the previous day,
acting like a glue
but I'll take a little irritation
and lay in this consequence-mud
if it means she rests well.
I'm just old fashioned.
Isn't that what they call it?
Needless to say,
I'd rather be sweating under a blanket with her
but it didn't end up that way -
the way I hoped.
My conscience won the coin toss.
Back to present -
The sound of footsteps
breaks my fragile thought process.
the scent of her body
and her shadow on the wall -
I'm missing two senses
but my heart is racing
as every footstep sends white pulses

she was ice
that wasn't cold.
She was stone
that wasn't hard.
She was sour
that tasted sweet.
I gathered up

I slammed my foot

"Wake up! Come on! Wake up!"
I lifted my head from my pillow, rubbed my eyes and removed my bangs from my face. My foggy eyes caught sight of Amata. She was shoving me, trying to get me to wake up. My eyes finally cleared and all I could see of Amata was her panicked face. "What's wrong, Amata? Are you hurt?" I tried to alert myself.
"You've got to get out of here! Your dad is gone and my father's men are looking for you!" Amata sounded very scared.
"Wait! Hold on!" I said to Amata. "What do you mean my dad is 'gone'?"
"He's left the vault! I don't know how, but he's gone! And my father, he's kind of gone crazy!" Everything was quickly turning into a nightmare as Amata explained this.
I stood up. "I've never seen you so scared, Amata! What's happened?"

Tod's a mute, it doesn't matter why. It doesn't matter why, but Tod's a mute. He sometimes wants the world to spin so fast that he's on the other side and he's singing, he's singing so loud that the crows in the rooftops stop their noise because there isn't any point because no-one's listening, because they're all listening to Tod. God stops to hear Tod sing. But Tod can't sing, not at the rate this world spins. He can't sing.
Tod starts to paint. Starts in his room at the sound of the door, but the sound's only so loud because it never comes from his mouth the way we sometimes surprise ourselves with words we never planned. Starts to paint with his right hand and learns to spoon chicken noodles into his mouth with his left, and Tod paints around a plate and stares at the daubed red sun that's hollow and always mouthing Oh.

Last week, we had a rat infestation at headquarters. There were swarms of them. Everywhere. All the time. And they stormed into the kitchen one evening and raided it. L was so pissed, he started squishing them with his bare feet, but there were just too many of them. Eventually, they carried L off with them.
Well, being the utter fool I am, I decided to first eat an entire watermelon, all the rat poison, some baking soda, vinegar, soda, and dead rats. Once my anus had stopped bleeding , I dug a hole in the baseboards and vowed to rescue L.
Unfortunately, L had already been devoured by the rats. So I joined the furry rodents and ate his bones. They tasted like cupcakes. Which reminded me that I

I was a selfish child then,

And so we did not speak;
we still do not really.
We cross paths in the street,

We've grown into something new.
I don't know your life,

Fly through galaxies yet uncharted,
past worlds of beings too strange for description,
past all the stars that guide the way
And here, a landing base that stands firm
amidst the swirling chaos of Elsewhere--
strong, powerful, and familiar.
Call it home.
Call it friends, and family, and love.
This is the source of sanity.
For some, it is hidden
behind mad dreams and desires--
delusions of a fantasy world that’s become much too real.
But it’s still there. It exists.
This place, this home, is a locked chest,
protecting the heart within.
Though the world outside is a wonderful place,
it’s only for visiting.
For home is where the heart lies.

"Come on, just a few more," the other called back. "They can't have taken everything with them. There's bound to be some food or a bottle around here someplace."
"There probably is," Edwards shot back with a deep sigh, "but it's getting dark and we need to get back to the regiment before the sergeant has us swinging KP duty for the rest of our tour."
"Alright, alright," Henderson shrugged reluctantly as he closed yet another empty cabinet. "Just one more house."

The rain came so quickly, few of the camping trailers had time to move. Though the flood was minor and came up to your shoulders at its highest, many of the trailers that couldnt be moved in time lay stuck in the muck.

Nate River had gone by many names over the years, and yet he often felt that none really suited him quite the way he would have liked. Most recent had been the addition of a new code name, L, along with the sub-categorical personas of Erald Coil, Danuve, and a few others that he had developed on his own. L was fine when it came to work, but it lacked a personal feel to it. Nate wasnt sure why that bothered him, given his pre-disposition to sitting alone in corners twirling his hair. But it did bother him, and as the years passed he had stopped questioning the feeling and simply let it remain, buried, festering.
And so it did remain, like other feelings he had taken a few moments out to classify and then toss aside over the course of his life. Feelings, that went by other names, all blank and invisible letters that identified him by face but not by heart.
N, another name, was an older façade than L. N was the product of a child trying to become a

I closed my eyes
when you said it was over
and I released my breath.
The same breath I once swore
I breathed for you...
And as my eyes roll back

I see my world corrupt.
No beauty in my life
if you're not in it.
So I hold my breath
count to my infinity.
And my hell takes over
as memories block happiness

There is this place
Beyond my fears,
Beyond the blood,
And all the tears
I see it only
In my dreams
But it's more real
Than it seems
A place where I don't
Cry or scream
Where all my thoughts
Are clear and clean
The sun gives light,
The sky is blue
No more memories
Left of you
The air smells sweet
And not like vomit
My skin is new,
No more scars on it
The illussions are gone
And everything's real
I finally know
What it's like to feel
Than this pain
The voices are gone,
I feel sane
I can laugh and be myself
I don't have to fake a smile
I can say those words "I'm happy"
And living all seems worth the while
A place where I don't have to hear
"You'll never get you're life in gear
You'll never be normal, you're nowhere near
You'll always live in pain and fear"
This is the only place
I wish to be
The only place
I can be free
Free from the sickness
That is me
And one day I'll find this place,
Someday I'll be

how impossible it seemed

innocence has died
pain floods through veins

stare at the stars
as they fade away
no one wishes for immortality
at least not today
wishing for death

we long for the things
that can set us free
release us from pain
and torture we see
the things we wish for

we could never live up to
the lessons life teach
instead we'll settle
for second best
a heart so scarred
will soon be at rest
immortality would hurt

everything we loved
would all fade away
watching it go
we wave goodbye
