your pretty little mind.
These monsters aren't in your closet,
they only hide in mine.
I know it must be scary,
to see them make me cry.
But I promise they won't touch you,
and I promise I'm just fine.
Sophie you can sleep now,
I'll turn your night light on.
When you wake in the morning,
these monsters will be gone.
I'll sing you a lullaby,
if you would only close your eyes.
Focus on my voice,
everything will be alright.
Sophie have you finally,
given in to sleep?
Forcing them inside myself,
these monsters I will keep.
Jefferson - InsanityThe candlelight was waning, but I took no notice. I couldn't, even as the wax dripped down the holder and threatened to hit my paper--I had to finish this letter; I could not leave it for the morning. With my back hunched over my desk, my fingers cramping after writing for so long, I was beginning to feel like myself again. I didn't want the moment to leave.Jefferson - Insanity3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

We weathered the dreaded maelstrom,
As the sea displayed her rage.
She danced like a fevered puppet,
Upon her deadly stage...
Within her swirling currents,
My men were cast aside.
Drawn into her hungry maw,
It was then and there they died.
Never had I seen such a thing,
It spoke of darkness before my eyes,
A serpent rose from the watery depths,
As lightning boiled from the skies.
It's screaming call was as a banshee's wail,
It stole the life from our shrieking lips,
Like the chilling touch of death itself,
We fell like slaves before the whips...
Darkness came and darkness went,
My eyes opened to the morning

Nie wstawaj do rana,
nie budź się o zmroku.
Śpij, niechaj w snach Twych
los nas posplata,
złączy nas na zawszę,
aż po końce świata.
Niech sen o miłości
niedługo się ziści,
Proszę Cię, Jedyna,
miej me serce w garści.
Bo w tobie tylko
że Tobie, jedynej
oddam swoje życie.
Tylko mnie kochaj,
obejmę Cię czule,

An Army at Mutiny
By January 1781, the American Revolution is now in its sixth year. General George Washington's Continental Army is now professional fighting force as he wanted it to be.

By 1775, the 13 British colonies in North America were outraged at such high taxation without any representation. The Americans have been burdened heavily by the high taxation. Across the Atlantic Ocean in Britain, King George III is getting outraged. His colonies are in near revolt, they are his subjects, Englishmen, yes not born in England but Englishmen just the same. He is their ruler and it is because of them that his empire is going broke. Decades ago, King George III sent British troops to defend the colonies from French and Native American invaders in what is today called the French and Indian War. While Britain won the war a

Introduction and Early Life
George Washington, the first president of the United States. Perhaps if it had not been for him, the United States may have never even existed in the first place. Today he is typically seen as one of the greatest presidents in American history and is largely looked at. Washington, born on February 22, 1732, gained several traits from his family, including his height and an interest in owning land. He had tragedy early in his life. His father died when he was 11 years old so his half-brother Lawrence took care of him. However, at the age of 34, Lawrence died of disease leaving Washington his plantation at Mount Ver

I am pain full
I am filled with pain
Leaping and dancing
Jumping and prancing
Light as a wave of air
Living life to the full without care
The parasite has grown
Larger than it's host
I never invited it in
Life passes by
On the other side of the glass
Eroded I'm propped in my chair
Eaten out by termite pain
I lie in bed
With heavy head
And watch the days tick by
Pain has invaded my life
It's having a whale of a time
Partying in my body
Pain gate-crashed my party
I have been pain fool

Extraordinary Kindnesses - The ClownMy sister made my wedding dressExtraordinary Kindnesses - The Clown1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
From a pattern that I selected
She instructed me to keep it always
In my wardrobe
Just like she did.
I have read about those
Who don their wedding dresses
On their wedding anniversaries
To ensure that they "keep their figures".
After eleven years of marriage
My husband and I separated
Never to reunite
I sold my wedding dress the next year
Through the local newspaper
A woman and her daughter
Arrived to inspect it
The mother bought it
For her daughter to wear at a debutante ball
And I was happy not only to
Receive some money for this useless dress
That had spent eleven years

The girl with auburn hair slowly stands up and steps over the bags, heading over to the door, "Oh, come on Hilary, it's just Asta. Besides, it would be wrong to leave her out."

The golden sun crept up on the city, bringing in a new day. The morning light shined through a young girl's window, illuminating her rather messy room. Andrea's eyes creakily opened with the incoming sunshine. With a moan, she rolled over in bed, reluctant to get up. As we all know, most children, and especially teenagers, greatly dislike waking up for school. Andrea was hardly an exception.
As she snuggled into her velvet blanket, her mind drifted to yesterday's events. She wished they didn't happen. Meeting those two strange siblings was something she'd rather forget. Especially the brother, she grimaced. T
