Ch. 4 of ImprintChapter 4 When Strangers Know Your Secret, It's Never A Coincidence
I woke up to my mom screaming. It was only four o'clock in the morning. Not even close to time to wake up for school this Monday morning. I assumed that she had a nightmare about me, or the rest of the pack. I sighed and plopped my head to the side of my pillow. Then she screamed again, louder and more fearful. I then realized it couldn't have just been a dream. I shot out of bed and got a head rush, it ached but I managed to walk out of my room dizzily. My eyes instantly grew wide when I saw my mother's door had been slammed open and was laying ﬂat on the ﬂoor, with claw marks and splinters hanging oﬀ the front. I looked inside her room and I saw it, the creature she was so afraid of. "No..."I breathed aloud. As soon as I spoke the creature looked at me with its hateful eyes. "Mom!"I cried and ran to her. I dragged her into the kitchen and told her to run to our neighbors house. 'Henr

The night have fallen and it was time for the Freeman brothers to go to bed. For some reason, did both not feel very sleepy. But they didn't say anything, they just lay down quietly. Almost a whole hour have been going, and no sleep yet. It was pretty unsual. Huey would have heard Rileys snoring by now... but his breathing was calm. Was he asleep? Huey just sighed and looked at the clock. 10.09 pm.
Huey blicked. Did he just fall asleep? No, he was just so into his thoughts he forgot everything around him. How long have it been? He looked at the clock again. 02.03 AM.
That was enough. He sat up in bed, but he didn't come any thuder until he heard Rileys tired voice.
"Huey", he started off.
Huey stopped, and looked over to his brother. Riley wasn't looking back, he was just staring right up to the ceiling.
"Yeah?" Huey answered.
"I had a nightmare..." he said.
"Too bad", Huey said and stood up. "I can't sleep".
He walked out the room. Riley watched him all the way out. He sat up in his b

This wretched pain drowns me.
This heart may be bleeding
but inside my mind im truly dying.
Maybe you cant see it.
But these tears should surly make you see.
That this heart is withering.
Just dying to be free.
Wont you please let me breath?
Cant you please just set me free?
This war keeps waging on.
These scars keep opening up.
I keep losing my heart and soul.
Set me free and let me go.
This cage keeps getting smaller.
This heart keeps breaking more.
This white flag keeps burning.
But inside im still fighting on.
But these wounds you make are getting sharper …
how much could one bleed on?
Words Cannot DescribeWords can't describe an emotion so real,Words Cannot Describe3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A heart held together by your thread.
Just over the ships edge, knowing,
I was going to fall.
And with each pulse of my heart
With your stare, your blazing eyes,
your brush, an accidental softness,
and your entrancing soft laugh
You set my timer-ridden heart to detonate.
My voice falters, trying to help you comprehend
but no words escape my lips.
Instead I smile, and watch you walk away.
I cannot ruin myself in your coal eyes
by expressing under such short time.
But, I still dream,
with our short time left together,
maybe I can make you see-
what words cannot describe.

Please try to calm your mind and forget about tomorrow
I know that life can hurt, but from my happiness you can borrow
Please don't cry anymore, I will help you with the troublesome morrow
Even if the bad seem to be everywhere you go
Just keep in mind that you have to stay away from what’s below
And I know that you’ll learn from these bad experiences
So then you can help those who are inexperienced
Please don’t be sad, everyone has a reason for his or her existence
You can’t ever give up, push through and have resistance
The worst thing you could do is to lose all of your hope
Just promise me that you will try to never mope

It wasn't my choice
I never learned to... be quiet.
Graves are only boxes
I'm not dead yet, but who's counting?
The clock is
Time doesn't exist-
I don't cut my wrist
I'm not pissed
But I'm sad.
I want to be a writer
But instead, I'm bitter
Down comes the rain,
pitter patter pitter
Against the window pane
I don't really know how to rhyme
But if I had a dime
For every time
I crumpled up a piece of paper,
I'd be rich.
But I'd have to give it all back for wasting trees.
You can't win against society
They don't get that people come in variety
Causing people anxiety over their body
And the way they look.
They bring out the book
I say, "What book?"
They say, "The bible."
Is it really that reliable?
Christians are undeniable

So others can shine.
So others can lead.
I break my own heart,
So others will be complete.
Because others will smile.
I stay up all night,
So others can sleep.
When you go to play,
I’ll be a toy
So you will have someone to play with.
I’ll be walking in the background.
When you read the book,
I'll be a random character.
When you look at me,
You know my name.
Even if just for a day,
Or an hour,
Or a second,
I would like to stand in the front.
I want to be seen by others.
To see people know my name,
Instead of standing in the background.

She wished for miracle,
an answer from up above.
Sitting alone at night,
wishing to die.
As she cuts her skin,
she also cries.
She looks at what she's become,
nothing in her eyes.
And every time she self-destructs,
It's cold in her world,
on the inside.
But she doesn't know how to cope,
her hands are tied.
And although you may already see,
the girl in this story is broken,
this girl is me.
Friendship Is More ThanFriendship is more than just being there,Friendship Is More Than2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Being there through the good times,
And being there through the bad times,
It is being there for everything in between,
For being wisdom when wisdom is needed,
To call out the things that we need to change,
But to do it in a loving way,
To be a person that is there through everything,
And to give a small to get you through the roughest days,
It doesn’t have to be a friendship based in reality,
Although those are important as well,
But the bonds we make can trespass,
Through any limitations of different locations,
Friendship is more than how many years you know someone,
How well that you might know the very depths of their souls,
It is dealing with the changes that we all go through,
And trying the best we can to be there,
Even when we disagree with personal choices,
It is about the hard part of life,
And about trying to be there,
But also to be the voice of reason,
When no reason exists,
It’s about forgiveness,

I hate the thought of coming home to an empty room.
It is a scenario my mind is not able to consume.
Even though I know you will be back soon.
I still have to wait for your return,
In order for my life to resume.
BrokenLooking through the mirrorBroken2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Into my reflection eyes
I look back
And the memories still burn
To be half awake
I lie in my bed, eyes open
Bloodshot, I wish I wasn't here
Wish I wasn't here today
Feeling empty on school days
And shattered like mirror pieces
They pierce like needles, shards
Cutting open my heart, leaving me broken
Blood stains my soul, coloring it dirty
Look at me now
I am crying
I am crying out loud!
Almost to a screaming point
Everyday, I wish I would disappear
Wish to disappear today
Flying through glass
I lean away, drifting in the distance
And tears crystallized once they fall
Bubbles is what I see
Underwater, I am suffocating
Let alone a frozen body
Sinking further and further
I wish I can stay here
Stay here forever
Opening my eyes slowly,
The reflection of the mirror’s dream
A broken frame
Tears blend with the blood
That cuts open with sharp glass
A fragile heart, a lost soul

My heart would beat faster when I looked into your eyes.
Even then, as I held you warmly in my arms,
Every word you said put me under your charm.
Dozing off, I sent you a little smile.
And told you that it’s fine to fall asleep for a while.
When you awoke, the sun was setting for its own time to sleep.
So I pulled you close and breathed in so deep.
Quietly, in the dark, I slowly fell in love.
Gently in my arms, I called you my little dove.

For fame and lust was society’s race.
Laws were built on the lies of the just,
And to falsely disdain was seen as a must.
How better the days we have as of now,
After all, liberty is what our hands plow.
Women are allowed to rule and to plan,
And the love of a man to another man.
Yet how come there exists a silent cursing,
Hatred broods swiftly like fires a-flaming.
Demons arise twice as much of days old,
More of children’s souls are for sale and sold.
And so tonight as we sleep and dream,
We’re not as free as we think and we seem.

I've given up.
I am tired of trying,
tired of crying and
tired of people like You...
In all my miserable life,
people have kicked me,
treated me like dirt...
Only a few have gained my trust and my heart.
But then soon they too stabbed me in the back,
twisting it to the hilt, opening up old wounds...
To watch me bleed out slowly in agony,
their stained hands still holding the blade,
as my blood drips to the cold hard cracked floor...
Each time with the most wicked of smiles,
as if their joy is to torment and upset me.
To make me suffer and hurt more than the last...
Each one had known the pain I harbored,
from past failed relationships with no love.
Each promised to treat me better, to be different...
But in the end they were just as bad,
as the ones that came before them
and some times even much worse...
They used and abused me.
Kept me around as a rebound
and then tossed me away like trash...
To ignore me completely,
never to speak to me again,

That just screamed “Save me!”
If you could only just scream out to.
Everyone to save you from.
There are just so many to save you
From. How I wish I could help.
I tried to look in your eyes and say to you
“Trust me! I can’t stand watching you hate it!
I could never stand watching you hate me!”
But your eyes went blank; I could see how
You stopped to look, no longer searching,
And you glared at me, knowing that I couldn’t
Look at you.
Broken, you watch as my heart is broken,
With a blank face and screaming eyes.
Painful words slither out of your mouth’s
Barely open like the tears that wanted to
Stream down your face, while you scream
Out your hate for the world, instead you
Mutter your hate for me, and I scream instead.
Broken pleas are all I can hear.
What Is Life?What is life and what is living?What Is Life?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What is life and what's worth giving?
Is there purpose to my breathing?
Is there purpose when I'm seething?
I demand to know!
I have every right!
I have come too far to be turned away!
I demand an answer!
I can't sleep at night!
I've come from afar and not for delay!
I demand to know why I exist and why I am here!
I just want to grow and live without fear!
I demand to know my destiny, yet I'm not a seer,
But even though that is so I still have my spear
Of knowledge, of wisdom and gain
To carry with me until slain!
I have my spirit in my flesh and I summon rain
To fall on us all and unleash the pain!
