HateI really hate the way she lies. She says she’ll listen, but she won’t. She promises she’ll be there, but she isn’t. She tells me it wasn’t her, but it was. I don’t hate her you know. I just hate everything she is, everything she does. Her smug smile. Her mud brown hair. Her green eyes with a drop of evil. The way she knows how to hurt me. The way she can make me cry. The way she likes it. She knows me too well. She knows how to hurt me. Knowledge is power and power corrupts. She’s the most corrupt person I know.Hate8 months ago in Emotional More Like This
But I can’t hate her; not entirely. After all, hating yourself isn’t healthy.
Why I hate Justin Bieber Quite a few people have asked me why I hate the insufferable wretch that is Justin Bieber as much as I do. Well, it’s not just his horrible music that makes me burn with an extreme hatred every time I even hear about him. There’s a rather sad story behind this.Why I hate Justin Bieber2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
About two or three years ago, when he was in his major prime, (which was about the time I first got into anime, and this will come into the story later.) I had a friend. I shall only refer to her as “Marlene”* for now. I knew Marlene for many years, and we rode the bus together. Marlene was a tomboy at the time. She was one of the best soccer players I knew, and she was amazing at drumming. And then, that fateful day arrived. She was using her phone on the bus, and I couldn’t help but glance over at her wallpaper. To my utter disbelief, it was a picture of Justin Bieber. I asked her, “Hey, did your little sister mess with your phone or something? You may want to check your wallpaper.

The Blame Game. The Blame GameThe Blame Game.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How about we play a game.
So we will know who is to blame.
We'll spin the dice and take a turn.
And hurt each other until it burns.
I can't believe what you have done.
Filled us with lies of Kingdom come.
You preached of a God oh so great.
Yet now it seems we are of different fates
There will be no hypocrites beyond His door.
Nor salvation for the wicked to their core.
No place for the deceitful with silver tongues
or those who have been lost since they were young.
For you who cant stand to see your mother.
Have only become a dreadful bother.
Spewing your hate from here to there.
You will one day face a life so bare.
You speak of a Kingdom and Father's love,
Yet when faced a problem; were the first to shove.
A coward hiding behind twisted lies.
Then questioned why we broke all ties.
Don't get me started on your transgressions.
Your problems you caused with pure aggression.
You fought, and screamed, and manipulated.
Your husbands left beaten and berated
TransgenderTransgender I always thought strange.Transgender2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What is in a pronoun change?
Don't understand what gender means.
Just a label it would seem.
Sealing yourself in a different box,
Boarded up, covered in locks.
Why can't we just break free?
Won't anyone join in with me?
No longer define by a gender.
No meaning behind him or her.
These labels won't get you far.
Everyone should be who they are.
From Your Fingertips (You Let It Go)She dreams of frost at night. It seeps from her skin, spreading out to daintily touch the floor, the windows, the wall, the ceiling, completely encircling her in the room, until its been wound so tight she can’t even hear anything aside from her own breathing, just in and out, in and out. An odd comfort, to say the least, but she can’t help but find that in that confinement of her own making - such a blatant, unchangeable prison of her subconscious - she’s never felt more free.From Your Fingertips (You Let It Go)1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

suckles the marrow from your bones

deep within your soul
Follow the beast
as it breaks your heart
shatters your mind like glass
cuts through your very soul
Follow the beast
as it rips you apart
leaves your chest open

Become the beast
deep within your heart
inside your poisoned mind
pushing aside your soul
Embrace the beast
one beating heart.
And remember then
what it takes to be human.

My boots knocked against the wooden planks of the ships steps and i sauntered down them to meet my newest captive. I blew the blue feather of my hat away from my eyes and tipped it back so my face could be seen. The floor creaked as it rocked to the side and a few unsecured boxes tipped precariously.
"Get off your asses and secure those boxes!" The men that had been sitting around smoking jumped at my voice and scrambled to their feet yelling "Yes Ma'am" and "Sorry Captain." I mumbled something about useless crew members and continued to the large wooden door that marked my chambers. I looked myself over quickly and straightened my askew blouse and coat, took a deep breath, smirked and slammed the door open and traipsed in. I took in the scene before me, the scene that was expected, a chair and three men. One man stood on either side of the wooden chair with their hands behind their backs looking straight ahead, each nodded their head as i walked in.
"At ease boys."

Selfless Lover-RepriseI had a dream, about me and youSelfless Lover-Reprise2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We had finally made it
and both said I do
you were as beautiful as I remember you in life
I was your husband and you were my wife
It was the happiest day for me and you
I had another dream, about me and you
I was alone, you were with another
but that was fine, we had said adieu
I still loved you, only as a friend
You were happy, all that mattered in the end
The dream has become real it would seem
I am not angry, how could I be?
I hope you find what you are looking for
Ignore my tears, don't worry about me
We were good, that's what I will remember
I hope you are happy and loved, even if it's with another
I am here, still the selfless lover

Thine ending glow, thy downfall casts no shade
Of deepest black against thy glow. Uncaught
My breath, unstirred my heart. I bade,
I wished, I wanted naught but breathless joy.
Cold is thy heart to mock me with such lack
And falling in such pallor to annoy,
To taunt and to be brash behind my back.
Thou art, O Sunset, longing of my heart,
To bring this day to end which I have loathed.
Glorious fire, hues of gold impart!
But why dost thou remain thus poorly clothed?
You see my longing, mourning end with day--
And still you will not end with gold, but gray.

A bird crosses the universe

a spiral path to madness.
Hansel and GretelWhat kind of motherHansel and Gretel10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
sends her children out
without their shoes or coats -
nothing but a trail of crumbs
to find their way back home?
They all find their way here.
Maybe it is the scent of holidays
freshly baked inside my kitchen
or the sight of spice drops
glistering in the rampant dusk.
The children like my house -
my rich ginger carpets
so easy to get lost in
and the pink pillows
puffed and glossy with promises.
They do not notice me watching,
how my fingers slip around their wrists
to measure their meager lives
or how I can smell when
they last ate their supper.
They only smile at me
and beg for more chocolate
in greedy little voices
and ask if they can see
what's baking in my oven now.

Back in May of 2012
I was going through a really tough time
I was losing some people whom I thought were really good friends of mine
But as time went on I realized I was wrong
Feeling lonely and melancholy I felt as though I had no one to lean on
But come the middle of May and that very fateful day
You and I began to talk
And I think I even felt it back then
That you and I were meant to be good friends
And towards the end of May I’m saying to myself,
“Man, this person’s really cool!”
I often wondered if you thought the same thing too
And don’t laugh when I say this
But I began to believe
This was payback for all of the bad friendships I’ve had to go through
Then June arrives

Uncertainty of BetrayalUncertainty of BetrayalUncertainty of Betrayal2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Wandering alone in a world of nothingness, wishing for something to return to you. The dust of your wandering soul forever shattered, echoes the cruelty and teachings of people you thought you could love. Betrayal is a weapon that is used too horribly. The wounds that betrayal leaves behind don’t heal so easily. If you look really carefully you can see that agony it leaves behind within the tears of all it touches. Those tears beg for the pain to end, it wishes to end the torment brought on by the people they loved.
Betrayal’s blade makes learning to trust and love an uphill battle. Like a God that allows for no miracles to occur. Curing betrayal’s disease is nearly and certainly almost impossible. Forgiveness does not cure this, forgiveness does not take away the pain, the hurt, the decades of suffering. Forgiveness simply renounces the resentment of what they did. How can it be that we can forgive and heal anger, but not the pain? How can we

Sitting here in my room with nothing but some tea, I ponder the lives of so many others. Beyond the futile judgments and ideals of mainstream cursed people, I throw away the morals and values of the targeted individuals and I follow my right path. Using the light from the true friends of gold and silver, I achieve my inner harmony. I have seen through the lies of others and I have abandoned them long before they realized it. I rejected the reasoning of a large community, and I will never accept faith in humanity. I ask this with an imploring heart, trust in yourself and the miracles you create with your own hands. Trust in the people who you deem worthy of it and rip away the bonds of the detrimental. Bring out your true love and friendship slowly and steadily, and show it to ones who are valuable to your sweet and unwavering glow. Erect the walls against those who try to harm that light; defend it with everything you have. Break the illusions people have put into your head
