His smiles cons his way out of problems he created, his voice speaks nothing but lies and breaking promises, and worst of all are his eyes.

To be so kind, so nice, to people then to turn and stalk and break others around him. It's sick how he does it to! He'll bring you in with that lying voice and conning smile, wanting only to be a friend, and quickly he weaves his way into your life. Almost like virus." I smile a bit as I look at him and though he looks back at me with the same smile. I can tell that he is a disgusting creature.
"He's a pitiful thing honestly. When it comes to important things he has a very hard time letting go. The worst part of i

My only sunshine.
You made me happy
When skies were gray.
You always knew, dear,
How much I love you.
But now my sunshine has gone away
The other night, dear,
As I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
When I awoke, dear,
I was mistaken
And I hung my head and cried.
You were my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You made me happy
When skies were gray.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I miss you.
But now my sunshine has gone away.
Now my sunshine was taken away.
Why the wolf howlsOnce a long time ago, wild cats and wolves shared the land. After years of living next to each other for so long both the wolves and cats planned to over throw one another. The wild cats soon fought against the wolves for the woodlands, and wolves fought against the wild cats for the mountain lands. It was never clear who stuck first but what was clear is that both sides suffered for their war, both in lives and in mental state.Why the wolf howls10 months ago in Literature More Like This
One day as a wolf from a warrior pack was patrolling his pack's border, he came across a Wild cat who had stalked its prey into his land. The wolf confronted the wild cat, claws ready to fight, but to his the surprise, the wild cat did not try to stand against him. "How dare you enter my land!" The wolf growled, keeping his guard up just in case of a sneak attack. "I-I'm sorry, I didn't know..." The wild cat replied, and as the wolf looked into the cat's eyes, he saw no threat. "It's okay....why are you here?" the wolf asked, though a lot more relaxed now. "Try
EyesStaring eyes, that's all I feel on me,Eyes9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not clothes, not comfort,
But judging, cold eyes all over,
Searching for the one little flaw,
One cold area.
I whisper to myself it will be alright,
But I think about how I'm lying to myself.
I'm being tested, and I'm almost at my breaking point,
They laugh at me, my hair, my clothes.
It's new to all of us, and I hate it.
The eyes, all from the dark shadows,
Of their souls.
Le Belle Dame"Never wake, stay with me. Stay with the one you love."Le Belle Dame9 months ago in Literature More Like This
That's what she says to me every night, or whenever I go to sleep. I try my best to resist her, I really do, but I always give in. Sometimes I don't see giving as a bad thing, it makes me happy, and I seem to get a lot more rest when I do. Despite that, I know this is wrong even if it makes me happy, I can't be happy this way. So I'll fight and search for a way to get her out of my head.
This all started happening three or five weeks ago, when I lost the love of my life. She was beautiful kind, understanding, as cute as a kitty, and was more fun then twenty college parties. And she left. I was forbidden to see or talk to her, so I decided to let it go, move on, and try to be happy with someone else. It's what my friends told me to do, and I tried my best to. Then it started. one morning as I tried to wake up, I saw her in bed with me. Lying with me just like we use to. Before I could say anything,
A Once Faded MemoryI remember.A Once Faded Memory9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I remember when I was young,
You came to my bedroom and tucked me in,
Turned on a nightlight to help me sleep,
Played the snow globes sweet melody,
And say, " Night night."
And I replied, " Love you."
And you did the same, " Love you too."
I remember when I searched my closet,
And found a small snow globe,
That played the sweetest sound a little girl once knew.
Mickey in the glass,
Once faded into the past,
Has brought out that little girl once again.
I now live.
I live in memory of the light bathed onto my bed,
And before you left you kissed my head,
What was once forgotten,
Has been reminded by a s
Unfinished BusinessSo much unfinished business,Unfinished Business10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
So many broken promises,
So many dues to pay,
On my table of apologies and sorrow.
All my apologies,
stuck in my head,
All my apologies,
waiting to be said.
As days pass by,
doubts gather more
I lose much time,
and only deplore.
I owe too many things,
and time has no mercy,
to fulfill lost undertakings,
I think and forget my sanity.
All these things I miss,
are on cards I deal with swiftness,
They lay corrupting my cognizance,
and my unfinished business

To turn your back
On the feelings you know
They surround and guard you
In your oven kept warm
Don't open the door
You will get burned
Your underworld so dark
Yet I see
your layers, pulled apart
they become me
I bask in your elusive train of thought
Left on edge
Not knowing if it will stop
These walls that were built
Conceal my heart
And the truth that lay within
Racing through the forest
That is my mind
What has happened?
Why am I so confined?
Resilience slides by
You think unnoticed
I've seen your kind
It's been my focus
In my thoughts, they're stained
I don't want to let

quietly sipping from a cup of coffee
while watching the morning news.
What you may or may not have known
is that, from birth, all I ever wanted
was to be just like you.
I've never met a nobler man,
who put all else before himself,
carrying his family in his loving hands.
A soul with a past that few could handle,
yet you carried yourself on iron legs,
teaching me that weakness is unacceptable.
A tenderness about you that no mother could match,
the protectiveness that only a father could know.
From birth till this day, I only feel peace when with you.
I told you "I love you"
and gently kissed you

Pride's old throne, an empty seat.
Once inked paper now found bare,
As my muse's whispers now turn rare.
Questions sent to looming corners,
Treading blindly to tear down barriers.
I must look like the losing warrior,
Thrust in battle without an armor.
Inspirations seeped from dry wells,
Like squeezing flame from a million hells.
The spill of flow embedded in night,
My soul's sanctuary trapped in fright.
The stars of hope flicker far,
Watching me grovel in this hour.
A fool I was to deafly pretend,
A blank canvas would never descend.
Yet in these spells of solid bind,
Are plenty gold and treasu

So let's get things straight: I USED to be a PETA supporter. I was all crazed and everything, but then I sorta fell out of it. I only realized until now how completely and utterly moronic the nice ole' folks down at PETA are. I'll just say a few little things you probably didn't know about PETA.
Firstly, according to government documents, since 1998 PETA has killed 21,000 dogs and cats. This has actually continued to go on, despite PETA condemning farmers, scientists, restaurant owners, circuses, hunters, fishermen, zoos, and pretty much

you once said one day we'd button it up

but now it's been so long
and I can hardly remember

I will never know who made this promise to me

suddenly this ghost

I go dancing in the stream

Dave walked through the apartment, rubbing his eyes while still wearing his shades, a practice he had grown quite skilled at. There was the clicking of Bro on his computer not far away, but Dave was too tired to see from where.
He hadn't slept well again because the birds that nested on top of the apartment had gotten a little restless at night. Every time Dave tried to get a little shut-eye, one of them would dive-bomb his window, giving him a heart attack.
But he wasn't going to admit that. He was too cool to get scared by some weird, likely suicidal birds.
He shuffled his way into the kitchen, stifling a yawn. Food. Th

I found you drifting among the dead tossed waves, where dreams lie shattered like tumbled
sea glass. Star sand glimmered along your face and kelp tangled in your ebony hair.
You were the abalone shell of colors and wonder.
Gulls echoed my worry that your breath was lost among the ocean floor, and my tears mixed with the saltwater spray. Yet your chest rose and fell with the tide.
The sea foam cradled you, and I was envious.
As pale as driftwood with pearl lips, I reached for you hesitantly: a child daring to touch a starfish. You couldn't recall my face, and my heart mirrored the crushed cockle shells beneath my fee
