"Trick or treat!" You griminaced, grabbing a handful of candy.
"Ya." You threw it into the kid's pillow case, and slammed the door. You flopped down on the couch, cursing your mother for taking off with you little brother, leaving you here to hand out candy. You didn't mind Halloween, but you hated handing out candy. You yelled as the door bell rang.
"I'm not home!"
"Yes you are." Came the snood reply.
"No I'm not! T-this is a voice recording." You dropped to a monotone voice. "Leave a message after the beep."
"Open the stupid door!" you sighed and ripped open the door.
"here." You shoved a hand full of candy into the kid's bag. She smirked, and left. You scowled, and watched her walk away, bragging to her friends.
"GAHH!" you jumped back into the house, tripping over a stray shoe.
"sorry." You looked up, and blinked.

Drowning Out The World
I find myself in the sounds-
I release my secrets in the lyrics
Inner peace is found-
The melodies calm my spirit
But when silence falls
The walls in my head break down
I'm consumed by stinging thoughts
And every regret cries out
Reality and time stop
The serenity within – goes silent
And then my mind floods
My past memories become violent
I get this sensation-
That I'm just too damaged
A truthful realization-
There's nothing left of me to salvage
Music is just a distraction-
To blind myself from the carnage
I remain lost in the destruction-
Where darkness has the advantage
The remnants of rhyme hinder-
The memories and I resist to coexist
As I let the essence of fear become louder-
I can't defy this quiet pestilence
I don't want to be a part of the silence
But it keeps pulling me back
It's erasing the meanings of every promis

They’ll never know
And we won’t hold it against them.
It’s not like they owe
It to us to make us feel like men
And women that are destined for greater things.
They have a higher purpose and calling.
It is they who have a bigger say in the world we live in.
Yes our lives may be predictable and boring.
But we have all in some way earned our positions.
In this life there are followers and then there are leaders,
And it’s the leaders that make those cut throat decisions.
Just like in school, you have the underachievers and the divas.
They have abilities and talents that are deemed useful
And it doesn’t matter whether they are dishonest or truthful.
Because we will still look and depend on them regardless
And the routines we enact everyday are ordinary and far less
Interesting, glamorous or meaningful.
That’s why we need them to be on a pedestal.
They can never know what its like,
To be so close to the lime light.

We wait for the last possible moment.
Even when confronting our opponents.
How we truly feel.
We hide behind our counterfeit expressions.
Conceal and contain our countless confessions.
Failing to announce,
What our mouths long to pronounce.
We purposely squander opportunities.
Maintaining our positions within our communities.
Avoiding any disclosure,
Reducing the risk of exposure.
We use humour to dilute what we actually say.
Because the truth does not have to be revealed today.
We know there always is a tomorrow,
So today has not got to be filled with sorrow.
We wait and wait.
Stall and prolong.
Until it’s too late
And the moment has gone.
There is never a convenient time.
For us to say what is really on our minds.
It takes the sight of a death bed.
Face on the WallLove, anger, blood, or a rose bedFace on the Wall3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A path of stardom upon which chosens tread.
Danger of a poisonous apple to be fed
to an uncrowned beauty whose lips tell a tale unsaid.
The wall inside his head,
With imagination it is all set to be painted.
Imagination lit by the color-Red.
The depths of the ocean that can never be seen through
An open mind like the limitless sky, flying in freedom found new.
Of the beauty that lies in her eyes, she had no clue.
The wall inside his head ready to be born anew,
to unravel the mysteries that it held-the color blue.
Darkness, negativity, engulfed the sad sack.
So lonely, no one to catch her when she falls back.
But there is another face to this, that should not be held back.
Elegance, simplicity and beauty in those locks of hair falling on her bare back.
The wall inside his head says, "Explore! Experiment, with the most versatile of all" -the color black.
Peace, purity, everything that is right.
The moon in the night, pearls and diamonds sparkling in sunl

The Words I Didn't Mean
Your last steps seemed to echo
While I watched you walk away
You're leaving me in our love's shadow
And all I can feel is a piece of me break away
The shock starts to sink in
Every pore is conquered
A fissure begins within
I'm torn asunder
Liquid memories drip from my face
My heart will always remember this kind of pain
The love that was shown on this day will remain in vain
I didn't know how much passion could weigh
Or the damage it could do when it betrays
Fused with the words that I never even wanted to say
Compassionless by nature / A lonesome torture
Unloved by liars / Sought by manipulators
Breathing in shards / Tearing out hearts
Caught off-guard / Soul is scarred
The regrets won't let me breathe
The thick tears protect me from what I don't want to see
This fresh wound over my chest is where your place used to be
Pathetically rooted by my knees
I reach for you through the debris
Even though there's no one who can salvage me

No lights, no earth, no sound.
Free floating, but not flight.
No solid, no gravity, no ground.
No up, no left, no down.
An endless space with no walls.
No locks, no rooms, no halls.
Must be in the deepest part.
No running, no lagging, no stalls.
Yes, I must be in space after all.
But the emptiest part.
I stay floating.
Neither one way nor the other going.
Trying in my deciding of what to do.
Simply breathing. Still not showing.
Contemplating every decision, outcome, need for knowing.
And then there was you.
You floated with me, clung together, tender tightness.
We sat together in the familiar silence.
Mystified with each other’s presence.
But this just waiting, stalling, not flying or falling.
No voices, no hearing, no motivation, no calling.
Wasn't doing either of us any justice.
Fed up, blindly, undecidedly, I leapt out of the dark.
From my safe known unknown to a new part.
Perhaps for the better, perhaps for the worse.

Every little promise that I foolishly made up-
Slowly melted back into nothingness
The sliver of hope will never be what it once was-
As my former prayers are rendered wordless
Silence is a massacre of thoughts
It's the aftermath of trauma
The walls in my head are flawed
The cracks leak in the karma
Slit Slit Slit
Blood from my fingers escape
Drip Drip Drip
Tears from my face evaporate
I scrape away at the barricades
Just so noise itself will never fade
It comes with a price I will gladly pay
A fragmented mind that will soon stray
Memories replay and recreate the despair
Of when I once felt an unrelenting desire
And then the dark corners of my soul flare
As my irises burst with a new shade of hellfire
Mist Mist Mist
My darkness devours my light

Ava woke up groggily. To her amazement she was no longer on top of Cole's chest and quickly struggled to figure out her surroundings. It was always unsettling to not know exactly where you where in a giant world. As her head cleared, she saw that Cole was now sleeping on his side, his head facing her, and she was down near his chest where it met the bed. His hand was a wall on the other side of her and it was clear that he had continued to hold her close to him throughout the night. Slightly flustered, she was surprised she hadn't woke up during all that movement in the night. It wasn't as though he could get away with much sneakiness around her. Due to his size he had the tact of an avalanche. She figured he had purposefully done so as she was still carefully situated. Having figured out where she was, Ava laid back down and continued to relax since Cole was still sleeping. Her eyes traveled up his bare chest. His very toned, bare chest. She watched it rise

Embers In The Rain
My blood contains the power of the sun
Instigation becomes dangerous
And when control is reduced to none
My rage is monstrous
There's no turning back when it begins
I will be searching for a source to blame
I will unleash a torrent of hell from within
For I am known as the bearer of the flame
I loath crossing that line
Being locked behind blind eyes
But I won't regret the ruins that I will create
As I leave supernova footprints in my wake
I destroy everything more than once! / My limits are undone!
Infinite ashes haunt darkening lungs! / My heart becomes numb!
Consuming infernos help me cope
As I bathe in the smothering smoke
Cleansing the vengeance
A cruel repentance
Searing the memories that I yearn
As soothing water puts out my roaring fire
My traumatized eyes sting and burn
I can never call myself a survivor
The aftermath is my salvation
For I am alone

Only inches away, the tiny girl was perched delicately on one of the small stone pillars that lined his garden. He looked at her with curiosity, overtaken by the sheer impossibility of it all. Never in his life could he have imagined such a miracle; it baffled him to no end. Karyn appeared chilled and frightened, a look he was becoming accustomed to. He wished he could offer some comfort, yet had no true understanding of the predicament at hand. With a sigh, he plucked her from her pedestal, placing her squirming figure in his palm, and walked slowly about his verandah.

Embrace sweet calamity,
The darkness which engulfs you now.
Apollyon, of that intrepid verse,
Now awaits, drooling with a gaping mouth.
Of temptation, the liars tongue,
Striking up the deals that bring you only to ruin
Just below, Tartarus waits for you...
And the patient welcoming shall be of no surprise.
Embrace now, bitter calamity...
The retribution that has longed for thy touch.
The clustered storm, prolonged, procrastinated,
hovers over to knock you down.
The portal, that vortex, to plunge you down.
Have you to own, no peace...
only what is allowed to your filthy hands...
The Gentle GiantRobin Hood on one occasion being hunting with his men and finding the sport to be poor, said:The Gentle Giant9 years ago in Historical More Like This
"We have had no sport now for some time. So I go abroad alone. And if I should fall into any peril whence I cannot escape, I will blow my horn that ye may know of it and bear me aid." And with that he bade them adieu and departed alone, having with him his bow and the arrows in his quiver.
Passing shortly over a brook by a long bridge he met at the middle a stranger.
And neither of the two would give way to the other. And Robin Hood being angry fitted an arrow to his bow and made ready to fire.
"Truly," said the stranger at this, "thou art a fine fellow that you must draw your long bow on me who have but a meager staff"
"That is just truly," said Robin; "and so I will lay by my bow and get me a staff to try if your deeds be as good as your words."
And with that he went into a thicket and chose him a small ground oak for a staff and returned to the stranger.

Good girls are really bad girls that never got caught
Kings and queens are insecure people that hide behind their forts.
Survivors are cowards that run away when they could’ve fought.
Celebrities are strategists and opportunists that utilise their thoughts
Teachers are failures who couldn’t make use of the lessons life taught.
It would seem then you are either one way or the other.
There is fine undefined line between enemies and lovers.
So pick and choose wisely when deciding what side you are on.
Because you can never know the person you one day might become.

I dashed between the trees in the forest, trying to get home as fast as possible. I didn't want to be outside at

couldn't find any freaking milk and had to keep running from store to store and that wasted about an hour of my time.
I started to come up to the swiftly flowing river and came to a stop on the bank. I had set a few stones across the middle
when I was a child so that I would be able to walk across. They had been almost completely submerged now and I had to be
careful going across.
I slowly stepped onto the first rock and it felt relatively dry. "Hm. I guess the water didn't go over them too much

Ladies and gentlewolves, I come before you today,
To speak on an issue that is close to our hearts.
For many centuries, we Wolves have struggled;
Continuing to seek a final solution to 'the Human Problem'.
Many of you might have heard of the horror stories,
Of these furless creatures lurking in the outer reaches.
Some cities have found them living in underground caverns;
Preying upon the young pups that stray too close to their nests.
It is sad, to say the least, but that sorrow ends today;
For it is my privilege and honour as Chairman of Lycanthropes United,
To unveil our newest means of combating this parasitic pandemic.

Discovered a particular genetic weakness in the Human cell structure,
When sprayed with this particular gas, 'Cynofium',
The human cells stop producing an important chemical;
Causing a quick death in mere moments...
