You finally say you love me, too?!
Well, that sucks
Because I don't give a fuck about you.
You say you want me back?
Oh I see how it is.
You just want to twist my arm around my back.
Maybe I'll show you what pain is!
You can't live without me, right?
Well have fun committing suicide!
Because you broke my heart to pieces--
You left me here to die.
So now I return the favor,
I'll let you feel my pain.
You wanna clean this mess up?
That sucks--because you can't use bleach on a red shirt's stains.

Blacks and whites now that you're away
I color in the lines where you once were
With possessions and fantasies and failures
An emptying crayon box sits idle
While I spend on colors little by little
Until I whittle my selection down
To rainbow nubs, blacks and brown
Once.Once there was a girlOnce.3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and she was born in the winter
and her parents were young
but they were happy; and so was she.
Once there was a girl
and people thought she was very smart
and she went to school and she learned and listened and did her work
but she didn't like to do so.
Once there was a girl
and she was always dreaming of something amazing
and she loved to sing songs and draw pictures and read stories
but she didn't like her voice and she didn't like her drawings and stories made her sad.
Once there was a girl
and she thought she should be better
and she tried to change and she tried to be better and she wanted folks to like her
but she couldn't change and she never was greater.

After all we were just kids then, sitting beneath the trunk of the oldest apple tree in town like royalty. I watched as the riveting words rolled off your tongue plunging into the crisp air executing all sorts of somersaults and flips before finally reaching my eager ears. The other kids called you the king of stories.
Why were your tales always so welding? Was it because your voice reached the various highs and lows like the valleys of deep mountain ranges? Or was it because your face would start to turn purple? Perhaps from all the words carrying oxygen molecules out of your lungs in a rather humorous way.
Or maybe, just maybe, was it because I loved you? I guess my clumsy, youth filled, little heart couldn't help but fall in love with the boy who gallantly sat

The trees are screaming,
And the ligers are pooping out skittles with the old zebra talking in an English accent,
The pink giraffes with the sombreros are row-boating to the chimpanzees,
And the lady bugs with the mustaches,
And toaster strudels are kicking the narwhals with baby traffic cones singing lollipop with a train,
And the UFO with the Christmas mistletoe is trying to gum the eyebrows that are eating the socks with big hairy Sasquatches,
And party poppers that are tanning with tinfoil,
And s'mores that are licking the gravel that have bedazzled underwear,
And swimsuit models attacking killers bees with superman,
And the island that hails the teddy bear that kills llamas,
And nyan's with gingerbread houses,
And fiddles with the paint that defeats the evil muffin,
And chews the man in the moon with pumpkin pie howling with some neon flying cars,
And heading to Narnia with my cookie that Kory sent there last year.

Lure me in with silk and gold,
beaded velvet, satin threads
drawn across lips still red with wine.
Draw me down beneath the world
into some secret, wanton lair
while Carnival still beats within our veins.
Wall me up behind the dark
and leave me with my silver chains
to think on wiles byzantine,
Montresor's bleak design.

Iridescent flickers of color
Float carelessly throughout the air
Resurfacing the wanders of the unknown
While exposing the passions within
The flames of the heathen blaze
Burst forth in sentimental dance
Exploding the tendencies of lacking thus
The infliction no longer dispersed
How I long of that fire
That flare of confession
Which leads and forgives and disappears
While leaving behind charred souls
My heart is made of coal
No longer of the nightly failings
But rather of the sky light sparks
That disappears behind rusted remarks
The spirits of the flourish
Tend to all my worthless cares
They bring up to the feelings of thus
The life circle...
Of the spirit blaze

Zelda sat up and yawned as she stretched, completely forgetting about what had happened that night.
Slowly, she got off the bed and looked down, seeing Link there cooking breakfast. She smiled and instantly remembered about last night. Her eyes widened and she blushed bright red.
Reluctantly, she climbed down the ladder and smelled the breakfast that was being made. It smelled delicious ..
"Zel? You up?" Link called, looking up, seeing Zelda standing there looking at him.
Zelda's blush got worse as she saw his smile and saw he was headed to the ladder.
He climbed up quickly and stood up next to her, still smiling.
Zelda looked down and moved some of her loose strands of hair behind her ear. "Good Morning, Link."
Link took her right hand and she looked up at him. "Is something wrong?"
"Oh, no! I'm just still not awake yet "
Link nodded and squeezed her hand.

They were two bigger kids who were 7, they towered over you being as small as you where.
They saw you marrying Barbie, to another Barbie, and decided that, that wasn't right, so they confronted you about it.

With political intrigue, conflict, and unrest all across the galaxy, the political scene of the galaxy is rife with turmoil. Each faction has their own agenda, and the council often dissolves into useless bickering and grandstanding. Despite the flaws in the system, the people of the galaxy mostly manage to get along with their lives, and technology, information, and resources are traded, if not openly, at least often. The dream of a unifying council of the races is full of corruption, but somehow or other manages to keep relative peace nonetheless.

"Why didn't I ask them to stay with me?" I asked myself sadly.
I sighed and looked at the park ahead. It had a small playground but it was more for the couples and parents to enjoy some time together. No one appeared to be there today so I waltzed right up to the swings and sat down, beginning to pump my legs. The eerie creak of the swing made the silence seem so loud. I had a strange feeling I was being watched but there no soul in sight.
Finally, I stopped myself from swinging and stood up, feeling uncomfortable. Suddenly, I heard heavy breathing behind me. I froze up and turned very slowly. A large man with a large cigar in his mouth was watching me with a smirk. I looked around nervously; I didn't understand how I didn't see him before.

"Welcome, Dara!" Leo said, embracing his niece. "How was your trip?"
"It was fine, thanks," Dara said. Leo was her late mother's elder sibling, although she saw only a fleeting resemblance, perhaps because her uncle wore the large, bushy mustache that was traditional to ringmasters of Alorian. He was a tall man, and of solid build. He stood roughly a head taller than his nineteen year old niece, and was finer dressed as well. Her plain white shirt, brown leather vest, green denim pants, and worn boots paled in comparison to his pristine white suit coat and polished black boots. Even his dark hair, its shade only a tad darker than hers, was slicked back and neatly trimmed, in contrast to her own plain hairdo consisting of a simple half-ponytail.
She supposed it made sense. The circus he ran was quite successful, from what she heard, while her and her mother had slightly less means. They were not poor exactly, but had never had much in the way of luxuries.

Being a farmer's daughter would have meant a life of hard work but self sustenance would almost certainly be guaranteed. However, being a farmer's daughter whose father had abandoned her and her mother meant a life of poverty. Mother was hard working and strong willed but even her resolve couldn't bring us enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle. One day tax was due but we hadn't the money to pay, so mother brought me the last cow and told me to take it to market. I reluctantly agreed. The farm lay in a small field surrounded by a seemingly never ending montage of trees, so tightly packed that sunlight failed to break through the expanding shield of emerald greens and Vandyke browns. The path I trod pierced the hallows of the dark woods like a knife through butter. Small animals rustled in the bushes and birds chirped soulful serenades in the background. Over all the years I had made the journey from the farm cottage to the market, the mys

He followed the rope until it disappeared into the depths. He let out a long sigh, eyes rising towards the horizon, gently rising and falling as the boat made its way across the open ocean. As his eyes scanned the horizon he noticed a little blip where the sky met the ocean. He squinted at it but after a minute forgot about it. He turned his back to the water and looked up to where his father was steering the vessel. His eyes scanned across the blue letters painted on the cabin, "Juliet" the mother he only remembered through old polaroid photos. He sort of blankly stared at the name until he heard a knocking.In a Giant Land4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

She didnt know why but she knew that the girl was here, directly at her side and she knew it was right.
It was normal and it felt like it never had been others. She sat up and rubbed her head, looked around. It seemed to be night or evening because the sun was away and she could only see the stars shinning at the sky.

The Monster WithinThe Monster Within2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It is so hard to tell anyone, you never want them to feel the pain you do, don't want to bring them down or make them worried so you keep brushing it under the rug looking forward to the moments you can be alone in your room just to listen to sad music and let the tears stream. You recover and relapse in cycles. You do not 'have it", you suffer from it and will for the rest of your life. It can be put away in a box but will randomly catch your eye and as you open it back up to see what's inside the blackness envelops before you have a chance to escape. You plaster a smile on your face and only letting the mask slide when you think they aren't looking. Seeking real pain to sate the torment in your mind, replacing one pain with another that is tangible and more logical. Numbness sets in, you see your body performing actions and are subconsciously aware that an alternative force is controlling your body as you watch.

for lines to pull

glistening with eel
hauling the afternoon
