My EverythingI cried when you started to walk away.My Everything2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
A life without you was too much to bear.
(I love you so, I wish you would stay.)
A broken heart formed when I watched you stray.
All alone, with nothing left, in despair;
I cried when you started to walk away.
My life is falling into disarray
Because you and I were the perfect pair.
(I love you so, I wish you would stay.)
When you yelled, my world turned to shades of gray;
I felt lost and broken beyond repair.
I cried when you started to walk away.
Your harsh departure made my life give way;
I yearn for you and your passionate stare.
(I love you so, I wish you would stay.)
If I was in your arms I'd be okay
Cause when you hold me I'm no longer scared.
I cried when you started to walk away;
I love you so, I wish you would stay.
How to Identify a 'Nice Guy'Girls! You've just met someone new. A boy someone. Your friends are giggling and making jokes about how the two of your are flirting, but you're just rolling your eyes and shaking your head. You tell them with conviction that he just wants to be friends; he's one of those nice guys that doesn't see girls as sex objects. Someone that you can open up to without ever having to worry that he has weird, ulterior motives like everybody else seems to have towards people their sexual orientation deem could be compatible. You and him aren't playing those strange, manipulative games, you're just friends, and you're both certain that's all you ever will beHow to Identify a 'Nice Guy'4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
What's that slight twitch of the jaw when you mention that boy across the street you have a thing for? What's with that little sigh whenever you tell him about how you saw a totally hot guy when you were out with your other friends yesterday? And how come whenever you have problems in a relationship he's just a comforting
She speaks in sighsShe speaks in sighsShe speaks in sighs2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
melancholy dripping from her eyes
to her lips, leaving salty trails
on her pale cheeks
She wanders through a whirling fog
tormented by shadows
of things never there
things that will never come
to break through the misty grey,
to stop the whirling in her mind
the flooding in her eyes
She speaks in sighs
of evaporated hopes,
of disintegrating dreams
She walks hand in hand
the two so intertwined,
there is no room in her heart
the cold so permeating
warmth is simply kept away
The night, the song and the poem of the deadKiller inspirationThe night, the song and the poem of the dead2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Brought me down to tears
Brought me to my fears
In the night of the "living" dead we smile
We greet the starry whispers of the swaying infernal abyss
In the song of the "living" dead we dance
We breathe particles of dead matter that engulf our souls
In the poem of the "living" dead I must
While there is nothing else to be said I must still say the truth before you
I believe there is nothing either alive or dead in this world
For this futile representative of the astral dimensions is a failure as big as our own
For we humans do not know how to pat, do not know how to "exist"
We only destroy!
This will be the night, the song and the poem of the "living" dead
The dead creatures in our own hearts and minds
They are our sorrows
As this apocalyptic song has got no rhythm
I sway to this dead beat
I dare you to follow me!
White LieIt's a stupid and childish saying,White Lie2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Everything will be okay"
Because it's not
And everyone knows it's not
But I wish
And they wish
It's a white lie
That everyone's accepted
As some sort of brief conspiracy
When everything is falling apart
And the world is crumbling around you
When you're five years old
And you scrape your knee
Your mother holds you tight
Kisses your knee
And tells you,
"Everything will be okay"
If only everything was that simple,
As simple as kissing
The broken, scraped
And fixing it with a shower
That it's not some circus act
That you only had as a child
Cloaked in innocence
And veiled from lies
Because everything is not going to be okay
But everyone says it anyway
Perchance to ForgetA single rose stands in the midst of a dreary grey,Perchance to Forget2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The only remnant of a time long ago,
A reminder of a brighter past.
I sit here day after day,
Doing my very best to keep this rose,
To keep my dream alive.
And thus far I have been successful,
But I know I can’t keep this up,
For time will eventually run out.
And so I take this rose,
And gently dig her out from the dirt,
Leaving the field barren.
I take this chance to start anew;
I till the soil and plant new seeds,
And water the foundation.
Perchance, I can take this opportunity to forget the past,
And place my focus and energy in the present,
So that I might make a better future.
Please Don't Go"We put things in the ground to grow"Please Don't Go2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I sat at a park
with my cane at my side
along the frame
of my leg
when a girl
"Then why do we bury people?"
I shot a glance
towards my feet
at her bright ruby
tap your shoes three times and say
you want to go home
"so that they can grow."
I looked at her,
deep in thought.
"Why would they need to grow when they're dead?"
crinkled at the question
then I spoke
"a seed starts from the ground, but unlike that, that is where we end. We grow for our death to become real to others."
the girl smiled
and then grasped
for my hand
I am her grandfather
I am a ghost.
The AnswersThere are so many mysteries left in the dark.The Answers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like what ever happened to Noah's lost ark?
Why did the Nazca draw there lines?
How did the Maya keep such good time?
Was Napoleons death natural or foul pay?
Is Amelia Earhart alive to this day?
What is at the bottom of the Money Pit?
Is the Holy Grail real, and were can we find it?
They say Lizzy Borden was devoid of all good,
And was there really someone called Robin Hood?
The crew of the Mary Celeste, where are they now?
We know the druids built Stonehenge, but how?
The Ark of the Covenant, were could it be?
Forever these questions will puzzle you and me.

I had always somewhere inside my heart,
Searched for you, the only missing part.
You were the only one, who could truly understand.
I was fine the way I am.
I feel the winds blow,
The trees sway to and fro.
Yet my heart feels, like it's not quiet the same.
With your gentle voice, you would call out my name.
That's all I would ever need.
When dawns starts to come in,
A new day would begin.
In this bright world, where I know you can laugh.
I will sacrifice if it's everything that I have.
My wish to protect you all my life.
Even through all I sacrifice.
My wish is to protect you,

One stormy night, a weird vampire/sorcerer/punk rocker stood meaningfully on a steep ledge in a forest called the Spine. His name was Durhurza. He and his Durhurgals watched silently as three elves strode by on unicorns. One of them was carrying a shiny dragon egg. Durhurza bellowed and, whipping out his magic guitar, he jumped off the ledge and attacked one of the elves, while his Durhurgals attacked the second one. The woman carrying the egg jumped off her unicorn and ran into a clearing where she sang a magical tune that made the egg disappear. Durhurza caught up to her and furiously strummed his guitar. The soundwaves knocked her unconscious and Durhurza dragged her away.
Some kid named Eragon (not Aragorn) was just about to shoot a deer, when all of a sudden, BOOM!!! An egg appeared out of nowhere in a flash of sparkly lights. Entranced, Eragon picked up the egg. “Wow, this would make one yummy ome
First ImpressionsI remember the first time I met herFirst Impressions2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a tower of books tucked under her chin
glasses sliding down her nose
that she wiggled like a hare's
I helped her carry the tower
to her brother's truck
him ever so persistent to return home
and her just happy to escape into literature
she slumped into the seat
the tower resting at her bare toes
she stuck out her hand
and told me her name
and laughed at the common of it
she would be a freshman after summer
same as me
her brother still urgent
had the engine roar to life
and drive away
her hand waving at me
with a broad smile bubbling over
that danced for me
and all I could think was
Love at first sight is real.

Eragon sat on a durhurgal corpse, eating a chili cheese burrito, when he saw Ajihad riding a llama onto the battlefield all triumphantly. “Aaaaayyyy!” he shouted to Eragon. Eragon called back, holding his burrito in the air.
Suddenly, Ajihad fell off his llama! Eragon dropped his burrito and rushed over to the great king. He kneeled down next to Ajihad, who was bleeding, and yelled, “NO!!! YOU CAN’T DIE!!!!”
Ajihad grimaced and wiggled away from Eragon. “If I’m dying, then it’s from your breath”, he said, covering his nose.
“I’m so sorry, Ajihad”, he sobbed. He held Ajihad’s hand. “Is there anything I can do for you?”
“Yeah, first eat a breath mint.” He offered Eragon an Altoid. “Now get me some nachos…..” With that, the king’s eyes rolled into the bac

The asylum was just as creepy as I had expected it to look. It was indeed a very old asylum that had been shut down back in the mid 90's for practicing illegal experiments and treatment methods on patience...many of which were inhumane. In fact, there were legends that floated around saying that the asylum was haunted by the ghosts of the patients that had died within its walls...making it the perfect Halloween attraction. What teenager doesn't want to prove their bravery by wandering into a place that has such a spooky backstory...and Eva was practically floating all the way there, she was so excited.
"This is going to be so cool!" She cried.
"If you say so." I answered quietly from within her cauldron. She shot me a questioning look at me.
"Do you think we'll see any ghosts?" She asked. I shook my head.
"Eva...you can't possibly believe that stuff." I answered. "Ghosts don't exist...they're made up fantasies." Eva shot me a cold look.

I found out recently that I may truly despise that boy.
I'm rather jealous of him.
My stomach churns and twists whenever people applaud him.
I'm jealous of his eloquence and outgoing personality.
I feel denounced every time he wins an award, wins a smile. He's almost better than me in each and every way. Sports, grades...life.
And yet, despite my trapped and bitter feelings,
I'm intrigued by him as a moth by the glowing lamplight.
Like a magnet, he pulls my attention closer and closer.
I can't help but admire him, respect him, laugh with him….My heart is pulled in two directions each time he laughs….each time he successfully jokes about something.
I am really jealous of him….Yet, at the same time, I'm awed by his appearance. He feels like an alien…
I think he lives in another world.
The people he interacts with are so different from mine…
The conversations he shares with others….the way he looks at his sur

She smiled and looked around
The people she loved
All in one room
She learned to love the simple things
Gave up her old impressions
Gave away her fears
For no one else to take
Finding herself in her unusual self
Opening her eyes and heart
People she would never have considerd
Take a turn to her best
So she smiles for them and laughs
Lets them make her feel loved
Takes away their frowns and tears
Always will there be a time
When rough the world appears
But here and now
In this only room
Used to be filled with bad memories
She sees everyone and smiles

You're many things. In my head I swear worse than a sailor thinking about you but when trying to put them into words verbally and on paper, I'm at a loss. I stumble over my words and I cry harder and I want to hit something because trying to find a proper way to describe you is the hardest challenge I've ever been faced with.
But, in a way, I found one. A word to describe you. It's a word every Elementary student is fully aware of because they're taught about it early, encouraged not to become one. You should have listened to our teachers, brother. Because what you are is a bully.
My brother is a bully.
You say things in a most patronizing way. "I thought the broom might be hiding in here since your room is a mess."

He would never cheat on her.
He would never hurt her.
He would never stop talking to her.

She waits by herself for something to happen.
Nothing ever does.
