If I Told You I Was A LesbianMommy,If I Told You I Was A Lesbian5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I dont know how to tell you.
I dont like to keep secrets,
But Im so afraid of your reaction.
Would you hate me
If I said there was someone I liked?
And that it wasnt a boy?
Would I still be your baby-girl,
Your pride and joy,
If I told you,
I was a lesbian?
Would you be angry with me,
Or at me,
If I thought another girl was attractive?
Would you scream,
Would you yell?
Would you still have your dreams,
Of watching me grow.
Or giving me away,
In a flowing gown of white,
If I told you,
I was a lesbian?
All my life,
I wanted to make you both so proud,
Make you both smile,
Make you see how great I could be.
But can a lifetime of work be undone,
By three simple words,
Which are not so simple?
I would rather have you be angry,
Than be disappointed in me.
I cannot help the way that I am,
The way I feel,
But I know its the way Im supposed to be.
Would I still be your daughter,
If I said Im
StrongI have to smile.Strong2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have to scream.
I have to be in denial,
Cuz If i'm not,
I have to be strong,
For everybody else.
When I'm weak,
Everybody else will lose me.
They can be weak.
Cuz I will stay strong.
They don't need to be.
I want them to stay happy.
I want them to stay safe.
I want to protect them from the world,
With all of my strength.
But I don't want to always be strong,
So I lean into the music,
The other worlds,
Where others are strong for me.
Where I can cry,
Be free from the pent-up wounds
Where I can dream of anybody,
And they'll be strong.
I hate being strong.
Sometimes its overwhelming
When I wake up in the morning,
But I have to be strong for them.
But I have to be strong for myself.
Because sometimes, they're weak.
So I'm the only one
I can count on to be strong.

Don't let your doubts make you give up.
God's Love for you is so Great!
Don't lie and say he hates!
God took upon himself every sin you've ever done, you're doing now, and ever will do! He gave his all for you!
Now multiply that by the countless people God has ever created and ever will create! It's too much to Fathom.
He gave his all for you!
His Love for you is like: if you were his only creation.
He hates the sins you do, but he Loves you!
Don't sit there denying this, but accept his offer for Salvation.
His will is for you to be saved, but you have to do your part before he works in you.
God is Faithful.
God is Able!
What are you waiting for?
Give your Life to Jesus today, or throw away the only chance you'll ever get to be saved by an all powerful, Loving, Compassionate, Caring God!
God bless you in the name of Jesus Christ!
Whosoever calls on his name will be saved
She's tough.Hey look, there she is.She's tough.2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Her hair is always a new colour and she wears hats to shade her face. Her piercings just keep increasing.
You see she's tough.
She smokes and drinks and stays out all night. I even heard she sleeps around.
And those clothes, can you believe it?
But she gets away with it, because she's tough.
I heard she even knocked out one of the teachers. Have you seen the bruises? She doesn't bother to cover them up.
But it's because she fights every night, because she's tough.
I mean, it wouldn't be the other option would it?
It wouldn't be that really her appearance is battle gear? She wouldn't be doing it to keep us away would she?
And the bruises, they really are from fighting right? She does hit them back doesn't she?
I mean, she's tough right?
Well, yeah, of course she is.
I mean, its not as if she's pretending. She's not faking it. Because that would mean that she was lying, and not just to us but to herself.
She couldn't be that fragile surely.

May break my bones.
But words can do much more.
I find them scribbled on notes strewn about,
And I hear your voice when I read them to myself.
They come in soft whispers,
Or thunderous shouts of anger.
They can inspire a masterpiece
Fueled by joy or pain.
They're sung sweetly in sunshine
Or bitterly in rain.
They can serve to begin or end
Something wonderful or terrible.
They are how I know you.
The bridges between our minds.
They are the art of the commoner.
You're lips, a brush, you're words, the strokes
The air is your canvas.
You paint your perception with your voice,
Giving me a portrait of what my eyes could never see.
Will you show me who you are or who you want to be?
With your words, you
Can tell the truth or fool me.
You create or destroy.
With your words,
You love or hate,
You give or you take.
Your words are your choice.
There is life and death.
In the power of your voice.
No EscapeThere is no escape from yourselfNo Escape2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crossing a river you return the same
There is no alternative reality
Where you could exist
There is only now and here
And all else is a neural construct
There is no running away
Lost you could not loose yourself
And there is no mindlessness
As no mind could comprehend it
There is only natural movement
In a mind that is untouched
In a body that is liquid
Undefined by its shape
Unconstrained and wide open

Those were the first words she spoke to me.
At the time, I was packing up, getting ready to leave the library.
I had another long day, spending the majority of my free time at the library, loitering around on my laptop,
Staring at my open wordpad as I contemplated about what to write about.
Just as I was readying to leave this girl, out of nowhere, asks me if I'm a writer.
-"I like to think I am."-
That's the only answer I could give her.
I had taken up writing as a hobby,
But no matter how hard I tried, all of my work felt underwhelming.
Could I get you to help me write a poem?
If that is too much trouble than anything else will do too."-
She starred at me with her big blue eyes,
Long golden hair,
Holding her hands together at her chest -
She was quite pretty at that,
Making me question why such a person would come up a complete stranger such as myself, and ask for something so absurd.
-"Why do you need something like that?"-

The scratches and cuts are always covered.
The smile always plastered on your face (except around me).
I remember what you said that day,
when your words broke my heart.
How long can you wear that mask?
You make me smile
when all I want to do is break down and cry.
But I'm not too good at cheering you up...
Please don't ever let me lose you.
I can't even handle the thought of you
crying on that dirty bathroom floor.
You came to me already damaged.
I hope I light up your world
if only just a bit.
I can't glue all of you back together,
because you're missing several pieces of yourself.
Ah, but you're so beautiful.
Love, the strongest drugLove, the strongest drug6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The first dose makes you happy
The second holds you tight
The next dose keeps you smiling
In the middle of the night
Then comes the perfection
Then love will unfold
then comes, the reflection
Of all good in your world
But the next dose keeps you longing
And the next ones takes its hold
Then comes, the possession
Then comes, the control
Did you realize you've gone to far?
the next dose starts the fighting
the next one brings the pain
the next dose makes you feel
like you're all alone, again
Have you gotten, to the regretting?
Did you take all, that you could
Is it almost, time to quit him?
Some alone time may be good.
But don't realize? you're addicted?
Its poisons lay instead
And even, when you've left him
There's no place you can hide
Its withdraws, cut your body
its poisons, take your mind
you'll be looking for your next dose
And ill be looking, too, for mine.

When the entire world has turned against you?
When all hope seems to disappear?
Can you tell me what to do here?
When all hope is lost, and the good times fade,
When good memories and smiles die away.

To help me, somehow, make a breakthrough?"
"Thinking dark thoughts will get you nowhere,
If you do think dark thoughts, then you'd best beware.
To ruin one life, you ruin countless others'
And you'll be the one who is 'under the covers'.
So remember this when going through life,
At the end of a tunnel, there is always a light.
And whenever you're feeling very sad or blue,
Remembering this is what you can do"

Every single kind.
The good, the bad, all of them.
Even if you think they have been forgotten.
But it's still there.
Just buried in the depth of your mind.
They can not be truly forgotten.
So look for them.
Activate them and re-watch those days.
Even if it is sad.
Go through those emotions and look ahead.
Remember the marks they left on you and move forward.
Unless you're Donna Noble.

I know now that I don't want this anymore
You have just shattered my soul
Ripped it into to pieces you insignificant mole
My life torn, shattered, and left in the dirt
So many ruined memories, and hurt
It all went by so fast
My happiness left in a cast
Picking up the shambles of a broken life
Staring at the blade of a sharp knife
I could end it all now
But there is no fun in that anyhow
I walk through this life alone
Without any hope or a home
I really need you tonight
I am a broken man in a losing fight
You blew your chance with me
Why can't you just take the time to see

It took four years after our last meeting with Jamie Bennett. Now he was 22 and soon he will culminate his studies in college.
Sophie on the other hand was still in high school, but after Jamie went to college, everything changed for her.
At 16, she still believed in the guardians and this gave her a lot of trouble at school because she was teased for believing in us. Whenever I could I tried to cheer her up to make her forget what others told her, but it was very difficult to avoid the bullies when the teasing became physical harassment. Once, I had to intervene to stop them from bothering her and I caused many problems for Sophie. They all began to exclude her from the others and some of them stopped talking to her for thinking she was a freak. Sophie was very upset with me after that incident and because of this, I went away for a couple of months so I could concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing and forget about the whole incident.

Kagome chewed the end of the pen, her concentration centered on the paper before her. The answers to the small questions on it, those were always the most difficult. Months, she had spent months preparing, knowing that this faced her eventually. Now that the day was here she was still confused. There were only three questions left. She stared down at the paper thinking through her answers. A small gurgle brought her attention to the small bassinet at her bedside. "So little one which shall it be, hmm? Kenmaru or Kenyasha? Kenyasha ... hmm ... That was your Uncle Souta's choice. It is close to your daddy's name. Yes, it is. I do like it but ... I think I like Kenmaru better." Quickly she wrote her son's name down in the correct box. "One down two to go." She told him. Her thoughts turned to the one box she dreaded, Father's name. She could lie and put unknown.

All words you have been called,
words that 'reflect' who you are.
Words you have grown used to,
words you can hear with only a sinking feeling.
It was worse.
There were tears,
believed "i'm fine's"
But thats all in the past.
you moved on.
because I was by your side the entire time.
No matter what you did,
not speak to anyone but me,
I never judged you.
I helped you,
tried to make you forget those jerks.
It worked, too.
Look at you now.
Those are words that reflect you now.
Words that always have.

Snuggling on a cold winter night.
Telling inside jokes and laughing like hyenas because of it.
Being by each other's side like there is no tomorrow.
Falling asleep in each other's arms.
Walking on the beach in the moonlight.
Not being afraid to show your romantic side around others.
Doing spontaneous things to show your love for me.
Looking at me with the that burning, fiery passion in your eyes.
Reassuring me that everything is alright.
Careful fixing my wounds as I fix yours.
Taking time out of your busy schedule to check up on me.
Telling me how you really feel at times.
Letting your emotions file out of you at anytime.
Giving me compliments every time we see each other.
Always being chivalrous even when its not needed.

In time wounds heal, scars may remain
Laugh a little
Eventually it will be effortless
Upward you climb
Never lose sight
Till you reach the top

In the end, you'll be fine
Try to hold your head up and smile
Soon you will feel better
Remember the things that made you smile
Even laugh sometimes
A heavy heart just drags you down
Life will look nicer if we all learn to smile
