Why do they think it's a joke?
When all we try is help?
It's not a joke for us,
When we go through it daily.
Just because you don't doesn't mean it isn't real.
Wait until you are in our shoes and tell me how it feels.
Take a step like mine,
Do you see how I limp?
Take a look like I do,
Do you see the spots I see?
Have a thought like I do,
Do you notice the gaps?

"Away from newcomers " the boy replied as the two ran from the onslaught battlefield somewhere behind them.

For quite some time, a few hours with resting breaks, they ran to escape the attack on their people.

There I sat in a small room filled with soft musical sounds, my fingers pressed gently and swiftly along the piano keys. It was my distinct melody, my heart pouring itself out, my time to relax and become one with my music.
To my advantage, the music room was available for me every day after school and always remained empty. It was my favourite time of the day, the time where I could be alone with my piano. I was never the type of person who could openly

You cheered me up when I was feeling down
You bought me small gifts to rid me of my frown
You were the candle that showed me the light
You were the one who held me in your arms late at night
You were there standing by me
You made me smile when the sun failed to shine
You made me laugh when I was in despair
And when raindrop like tears threatened to wash away my dreams
You were there standing by me
And when raindrop like tears fell upon me and there was no one left to care
You held me in your arms
And whispered into my ears
I will stand by you
I always will
That I thank-you
That I care
I will stand by you
You stood by
Losing My Mind And MemoryLosing My Mind And Memory3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Like The Rushing Waves,
My Mind Hinders In All Direction
My Memories Are Carried By The Strings Of The Tide
In & Out
In & Out
Disappearing On The Calming Sea Of Knowledge
The Tide Run's Out, & I Forget
The Tide Bleeds In & I Regret.
But The Moon Still Comes Out Night After Night
Bathing the Sea its Arc light.
Sometimes I Think My Mind Is Still Strong
Strong Like The Tide But Slowly Decayed
Wile On The Outside, I Play The Masquerade
But Deep In My Heart, I know All The Same
I Am Just Like The Rocks The Sea Whittled Away
Me & My Mind, We Aren't Hear To Stay
Sooner Or Later
We Will Just Fade Away...

The PassionThe Passion2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Sitting with my dad in our big glass tent drinking coffee, is a usual routine in my life. I started the conversation by saying: "Dad, I'm passionate about birds, I really want to own one ". He looked at my face but it wasn't just a look, he was staring at all the details in my face and said: "let me tell you about your father's passion."
The story of my passion started since I was a teenager. I couldn't think of anything but falcons and hunting, it was moving in my veins with my blood. Mentioning the word hunting at that time could make me fly in my own world so proudly like a falcon brave and strong free as a king in his sky, but my fiction
How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies6 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier. :)
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice

My Life In a Nutshell
I (That's just another word for me.)
I tried to reason with myself today.
I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me.
By the way, why did you fall in love with me?
Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms?
I saw the truth today.
It wasn't pretty.
Yesterday I had a dream.
You lost me.
I found me.
The world use to look so dim.
Oh wait, there's the light switch.
Damn, the light just burned out!
The future looks so bright.
No wait, that's just car headlights.
I think I died and went to...
Not you again.

It was another thing to be sitting face to face across the table with your crush.
But it was another thing to be this, sitting right next to each other. So close that one tiny movement could lead to something unexpected.
If only Jinki had the courage to move his hand and make the spark. He wanted to make the move. This moment was the moment he had been waiting for. Seungyeon was here, sitting right beside him. Her hand three centimeters away from his.
It was quiet, maybe too quiet. But Seungyeon was fine with it. She was here. He was here. They were sitting right n

Your words are hate.
You are worthless, useless. You can't do anything and you will never do anything of any importance. Anything you do is a waste of time, no one cares. WORTHLESS!
Hate, bitter, rage without reason, those are your words to me and have always been towards me for as long as I have been alive.
Why do you hate me so much?
May break my bones
Why are you not like me? Why must you be so different from what I demand you to be? I gave you life, why can you not do as I demand and be exactly like me?
When I work hard, you criticise me. When I am doing something I enjoy, you criticise me. You call me usel

Winter is a month for such farewells, and December takes the brunt of it;
Who could have ever guessed that a time as bright as spring could rip us apart?
You were always one for watching the sunset;
I was always one for watching the stars.
Your letters were floating around my ceiling that night, and I tossed a

The Lost Dream"Beyond the bounds of being, behind the shield of reality, it dwells within belief but only exist in actuality. A lost dream, conjured from the ghost's whispers and the angel's lyrics, rest in the palms of man and beams with power throughout the collective universe. Man, the vessel, the host; constantly viewing dreams, yet they remain ignorant, but a few are enlightened. A man with this knowledge of the dream, this power, can manipulate any reality." -Abdul-Basir Abdullah on DreamsThe Lost Dream5 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The story unfolds
Like a knotted piece of string
One by one undone
With each of them a little piece
A little piece more comes
Giving me more insight
Into what once was
And maybe will be again
I can see us there
More of us each time
Clicking, one, two, three
More of us involved
Then I could have known
We have danced this dance
Together for quite some time
We have spun this together
Linked throughout time
Some of it nice
Although for some we paid the price
Not always pleasant
Not always kind
We have loved and fought
We have drawn our weapons
We made our choices
We have carried some with us

Not a person in sight to bother us.
Just you and me.
Hands held tight.
Both of us sweaty from the hot day.
I get us lost
(Partially on purpose).
It starts with a tender hug.
Arms wrapped around each other,
Breathing in rhythm.
My head is on your shoulder.
I feel safe and secure.
Then I look up, and you look down.
Did I close my eyes?
Who leaned in?
How long was it?
Who pulled away?
Does it really matter?
I just got my first kiss.
None of my questions matter.
I just know that it happened.
And I'm in love.
