SnowblindThe moonlit sky has shrunk away to little more than a blackened husk, greyed with the bobbing clouds of a coming storm. Yet, I am undeterred as I tromp, step by step, beat by beat, through the icy snow, it burning through the gaping holes in my tattered running shoes. I need to be gone. I need to disappear into the night. Looking back against my own judgement, I still see the lights, and faintly hear the music, pounding away at a constant, repetitive bassline. A single image trounces all others in my mind, though. A single balloon, an elliptical red star shimmering with a metallic film, has been released and is flying far above the beat of the drum, and the twisted mass of bodies crushing the snow with their desperate feet and hopeless hearts. Lucky, that one, I think. What I wouldn't do to float up above all of this, to transcend this primitive ritual. My nose twitches in response to the bitter cold, and I can't help but agree. It felt much warmer back there, though the dance was outd

Vermin crawling, for nothing but fortune and fame
Are we all just one and another?
Grabbing the world, taking all to smother
Are we all just one and nothing?
Forgetting the truest meaning of all loving
The tap is leaking, it's soon to run out
The clock is ticking, it's soon to count down
All too soon.

Only gentle reveries, to soothe the mind
Soldiers marching, breaks the silence
Not proclaiming peace, but bringing violence
We will escape, I know it's true
We will escape, with all of you
Escape this life, of death, of fear
Escape this life, to skies so clear
To a place where freedom is always free
'Cross rolling plains and blue seas
Where the birds sing
Of a life worth living
We are Children of War

But dont choose
To just bury it
In the darkness
Of the earth
In the soil and dirt
Or hoarding it
Like something secret
Without a care
What happens to it
Dont leave it
Instead choose to care
Guard it from
The chill killing frost
Warmth and light
To let it grow
So nourish it
And nurture it
The little seeds
That weve sown
Tend that precious
Til love blooms
And fully grows

Will you live by staying on your knees?
Or will you die standing on your feet?
Will you make your life known?
Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Or will you eat what you're fed?
Will you protect those you love?
Will you stand up to the darkness, make the world better?
Or will you stand idly by in your luminous globe of ignorance?
Will you rise above?
Will you end the chaos, will it away?
Or will you facilitate it, by letting it stay?

My world was black and white and red all over. Her jet black hair, her snow white teeth and her crimson red lips, along with the scarlet liquid that dripped from her mouth. The liquid didnt seem to stain her teeth, nor blend with the shade of her lips. That is when I noticed what she was. That is when I noticed who she was. Me, and this was the destiny calling me.
I woke shaking, everything felt so surreal. It was just a dream. I whispered to myself, then I turned to see my sisters bed empty, then I looked to my apparent alarm clock. It read, 7:29am, in it neon red hatred toward me. Fuck, was the only thought that past through my head. I threw the blankets over the bed and got out. Stretched, and then began running around to get ready to go to school. I was supposed to of left by now if I wanted to meet Eric at the coffee shop before
Broken-Hearted BisexualIs it strange that I think he’s cute?Broken-Hearted Bisexual1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it wrong that I think she’s hot?
Ask me a question – I’m not mute.
Is this wrong? Of course it’s not.
Why should I care if I like a guy?
Why should I care if I like a chick?
I think I love him – don’t know why.
It’s time to party – I’ll take my pick.
I love his hair, his boyish smile,
I like her eyes, the way she winks.
I’m in his arms – come dance awhile,
I’m happy, who cares what society thinks.
I feel his chest, the soft tender skin,
Her cheeky grin, her tongue on my lips.
I’m safe with him – I’m lost within,
The flick of her hair, the sway of her hips.
I’m a bisexual; I know it’s hard,
For you to admit I’m not like you.
Society’s disapproval left me scarred,
So get out – it’s time you flew.
I’ve loved a lass,
And I’ve loved a guy,
My heart shattered like glass,
So I guess again I’ll try.
