Tired Of This PlaceEach scar is because of you.Tired Of This Place2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You're the one to make my blood bloom.
The empty pain I feel inside,
foreshadows my deep demise.
I'm sick of crying,
I'm sorry for trying.
I should have ended when I was born,
then maybe no heart would be torn.
I wish my breath did not start,
and maybe even my heart.
Growing up is the hard part,
I really didn't want to start.
I wish it was easy to say goodbye,
so then maybe I could die.

"The spirits of these five ponies got us through every challenge you threw at us!"
Twilight Sparkle glared at Nightmare Moon, her five friends at her back. The shards of the broken elements hovered about them all, radiating with awakened power. Honesty, Laughter, Generosity, Loyalty, and Kindness had gotten them this far, and now all but the final element lay in their grasp.
"But you still don't have the sixth element!" scoffed Nightmare Moon, with only a twinge of worry on her face. "The spark didn't work!"
"But it did," continued Twilight, "a different kind of spark." She turned towards her friends and continued, "I felt it the very moment I realized how happy I was to hear you, to see you, how much I cared about you. The spark ignited inside me when I realized that you all are my friends!"
Nightmare moon stood visibly shaken, and as twilight turned away from her friends their eyes sharpened from humility to confidence. They knew now that the Elements of Harmony were in their gras

"GOD why?! Why aren't I beautiful!? Why am I fat!? Why do I feel like a big blob no one wants touching them?!!? Why didn't you make me skinny?! Why didn't you make me beautiful!?"
She held her sobs in, so no one would hear. Covering her face in her comforter, she muffled the strangled noises erupting from her throat.
"Oh GGod," she cried in a tiny strained voice, unable to find the words to verbalize her pain. "God, hold me please," She closed her eyes and knew His arms embraced her. Her sobs slowly subsided, resurfacing ever so often, but calming again. The peace encased her, every nook and cranny of her world was sealed, and peace overwhelmed her.
Without warning she was looking through a crowd of silhouettes. Everyone was staring at someone. She tried to see who it was, that held the throngs attention. They were lined up on either sides of a path, and at the end of the path, was the throne of God.

I went to bed around 10:40 PM, but my body woke me up a few times in the middle of the night. First around 5 AM, then again around 6. Then I shut my eyes and dozed off once again at 6:23 AM, and I experienced an unusual dream as I slept for another half-hour:
~ I woke up lying in the backseat of my dad's car. It was nighttime, or so it seemed, yet everything was clearly visible and not very dark through my eyes. I heard a familiar voice and identified it as TobyMac. I looked out and watched from the back window of the car and saw TobyMac singing his song, "Hey Devil", while standing behind the car in the driveway with a microphone in his hand, getting into the song as if it were a music video.
"She dialed him about 6:00 pm / She checked her hair in the mirror and she stepped through the door like this / Three flights down and she's out on the streets / Walking brick sidewalks lined in grey concrete..

"Indeed," he replies, "my little bird. And yet you still feel drawn to me."
A smile on her face as she prims her lips.
Red stains are bequeathed as soft flesh blends with metal.
"A man like you stirs my interest. Arouses me; oh very so."
They embrace each other and a candle is lit; her chest is pressed against his.
How remarkable are the kisses they share; an embodiment of lust.
But more so than a tale of passion, they do teach us such a valuable lesson.
Blood runs down those rosy cheeks, taints the crinkled bedsheet red.
"Trusting a stranger, what a fool." is heard whispering the masked one.

Essay: Double Standards and "Shoving Them down My Throat"
This stamp can apply to anyone, but I am particularly addressing this to certain members of the atheistic community who make the rest of them look bad.
Some things that need to be said up front:
This is not meant to be a statement against atheism in general, nor is it intended to incite hatred against the atheist community. Many if not most atheists I've met are people for whom I have great respect.I am among the first to admit that the Christian community has many shortcomings of its own, and this stamp is not an attempt to deny that fact. The words and actions of fellow Christians are often just as offensive as the words and actions of those challenging Christianity.In this essay, I am referring mainly to the extreme, militant atheists. When I simply use the term "atheist" in this essay, it is not from an intent to generalize: merely a shortening from "extreme, militant atheist" for the sake

We live to die
We hate to serve
We want to kill
We deserve to avenge
All is one
We all die

Escape the blade
Escape a bloody embrace
Escape the media

Another one destined to live
There is no way to survive this

Dying in the dark

We won't die
Escape the shells,
escape the bloody embrace,
kill or be killed
No one runs scared
We either survive
No one runs without a limp
For the death toll
a sweet embrace,
you call out
and no one listens
a distant battlefield
stained with spite
Everyone is left on the ground
No graves, no stones
No peace six feet under
We live to die
We live to kill
Scarred, horrifically beaten
Left to rot
Left to burn

Sometimes A Smile Isn't EnoughOn the outside, she's confident and strongSometimes A Smile Isn't Enough3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She's so smart and she loves to prove you wrong
She loves the small things and always tries her best
She never puts you down or puts friendships to the test
She'll do almost anything, she always loves the truth
She's more comfortable in sweatpants, but she'll wear nice clothes, too
She's always smiling, coming up with a joke
She always makes you promise you won't drink, do drugs, or smoke
She always acts like nothing's wrong
She really good at playing along
On the inside she's not okay
She faces challenges every day
Her friend is dying, she's failing a class
She's sick of hiding behind a mask
She keeps all her secrets and hides all her fears
She's still being abused after all these years
Her parents call her worthless, they yell at her each night
She doesn't know how much longer she can keep up the fight
Even though on the outside she seems so strong
On the inside, you couldn't be more wrong
Maybe someday someone will see her bluffs

LifeI hate my life.Life3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to die.
Now I know
That life would
Move on without me.
But that doesn't matter.
That my family
Would miss me.
That we don't know
What happens after death
It's a permanent solution
To a temporary problem.
Those reasons don't really matter to me.
It doesn't stop my way of thinking.
Suicide still sounds appealing.
People call me a coward
For running away from my problems
And maybe they're right.
But I don't see the light anymore.
And I just want to go away.
My life doesn't seem worth living.
My family would move on.
Things might now get better.
I believe we are reborn after death.
This 'temporary' problem has lasted years.
So I don't want to live.
I want to be a coward.
I want to run from my problems.
I want to die.
But for now
I'll hang on for a little longer.
Maybe I'll find hope again.
But I can't promise
That I'll always try to stay around.
SmileLook at your smileSmile1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
its as bright as the sun,
one look at it
and everyone is in love.
It's so beautiful and frail
is that even fair?
But just look at my smile
its as dark as the night,
one look and everyone
flees with fright.
Why do you have a better smile
Is it because I no longer have light
I envy your smile
I want it so bad,
but deep down inside
I know that won't happen because
my smile was meant
to be a silent tragedy.
Broken wings won't flyBroken wings won't fly3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The pain inside me makes me,
tells me who I really am.
In silence I suffer, locked myself up
to feel the peace I once had.
I got strangled in my thoughts.
I know that what is left only is to suffocate.
They take my breath away slowly
only there to share the fear.
And i'm all that is left.
I cannot tell what is fake and what is real.
Caught in my own world
I spread my wings they hit the walls
Take my broken wings
Let me learn to fly again
and teach me how to swim
bring me please my speech
now matter how long I stumble and stutter
let me fall
because the pain inside me makes me,
tells me who I will become.

Please, look me in the eyes

I did it to live. I did it to survive.
God didn't have this happen 'cuz I did something wrong.

And I no longer care if others call me absurd.
I'll keep silent no more.

To put you away
Somewhere far far far Away
I don’t want the ceaseless reminders
The everything about you
I can’t survive with your burning flame
This close to my heart
I’m sweating on the inside, consumed
Like the forest to a fire
So maybe, I thought, I could file you away
I could wrap your bright smiles
And contain your beautiful laugh
And put your big brown eyes
Into a box
And just hide them away
From my straying eyes
Somewhere I can’t even feel their presence
Because I can’t, really, trust myself to
Keep you from my mind
Despite my preoccupation with fire
I don’t want to burn
The memories away
Like old love letters or pages
And, I don’t really want you to go away
I want you to stay, just
A certain distance away
Where I can still reach out when I’m
Feeling faithless that we ever were

Don't rush.Don't rush your life, what exactly are you trying to prove, and to who? Live at your own pace, appreciate the moment, and stop measuring your life by the years you have been around, put more life–– in your years, more sincerity in your actions, and more love in yourself. It is not a race, it is not a competition, the journey is the destination, this moment is what matters. Stop reminiscing on the past, stop worrying about your future, and be aware of yourself, your surroundings, your mind and your life, right now, because this… is it. The only reason you will have regrets, and say that life passed you by, is if you stand still, while everything blurs around you, be the centre of your universe, you are the leading man/ woman of your life, do not act like an extra, take charge, grab onto what you want, learn from your mistakes, let others learn from yours.Don't rush.1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This

"I really start to wonder if that supposed forest wasn't a lie !" Rue pestered.
The three dragons had been flying for a quarter of hour now. The faint light of the moon and stars was barely enough to see the ground, so spotting a forest at a distance... The worse was that there didn't seem to be anything under them. Just a vast, featureless plain. Nothing that could help them keep track of their direction or guide them.
"We've only been flying for a quarter of hour, the forest is just a bit far that's all." Mei shrugged.
Her magical way to fly allowed her to look back at Bargy and Rue while continuing to fly in the same direction.
"Meh, it's only a quarter of hour for you !" Bargy exclaimed. "I didn't thought flying was so intense !"
Rue nodded. "Yeah, my wings already start to burn ! I wonder if we're doing something wrong, but I'm certainly not going to continue for long like that !"

This box had something special. Indeed, it was the next on the delivering list of the driver, although it was completely unaware of it. We don't say these things to a box, you know. Anyway - it was laying there, wrapped in plastic in the colors of the sending company, with a sticker bearing the recipient's address on its top, shaken by the bumps of the road in the back of the van, dimly lit by two small lights.
The vehicle slowed, then stopped, and the engine noise and the vibrations that shook it stopped abruptly. After a few moments, the rear doors were opened, and the bright light of a spring morning entered the compartment. Two hands grabbed the box and picked it up.
