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.
Weren't you here last year?
I just started a new lease on life.
My credit score is above average.
Oops! I just read it backwards.
My mom use to say: Be whatever you want.
Mom I want to be adopted, just kidding.
My mom said: I want to be taken serious, just not too serious.
I wish I knew.
That's it, I just wish I knew.
Well that and many other things.

I'll slay the dragon you fear.
The temptation is right in front of you
I beg you not to give in.
I would pluck out all of my lashes,
Break all of my insides for you to see.
I would pick roses from the deepest bush,
The center of a maze of thorns.
Which would result in a bloody death,
But all will be fine if you see me.
As long as you look for me I'll do it all.
A cat has nine lives, so does my heart.
You can break me all you want.
I'll be krazy glue, cement dried onto your hand.
I'll be your gauntlets and chain mail.
Your helmet, sword, and lock.
I'll keep the key in my heart.
You have my key in your heart.
The soles of my feet are in pain,
All the times I walked on glass, repeatedly.
The pieces are still stuck,
They're in my spine and my heart.
I can't shake you.
It just seems that I'm a camel.
Parched beneath the desert sun,
You tease me with water.
It's like I'm hanging from the edge of a cliff.
And you just remove one finger at a time.

Is beyond me:
A yellow jacket
Or, a bumble bee?
What do I hear,
Is very clear:
A soft melody,
Is quite near.
What do I taste,
This sticky paste:
What do I feel,
Is an electric eel:
This surprised shock,
What an ordeal.
What do I smell,
That's really swell:
In this hell.

But you’ll never understand others pain
Life is like a merry go round for you
‘Can you feel this beat?’
“Go take a chance what’s the worst that could happen?”
Your words spoke with clear certainty
Forgetting the worlds surrounding you, not just your own
‘Hey, do you understand the pain deep inside my throat?
Can you bear to live, while others die on your watch?’
There’s an error amongst our world
No one’s able to see the goal,
He’s living amongst the depths of our lives
Hidden out in the open,
He smiles as we weep
Why do you insist he isn’t real?
He’s there smiling as we fall
As we run for our lives, suffering just fine
He’s out there watching, smiling, laughing at all us
Days passing by like there are no worries
The pain in my throat remains the same
Unable to speak of the dangers,
‘Is this a curse?’
“You shouldn’t worry life is quite peace

"Silly child, can't you see the truth? You're always left behind."
"Don't say that.. Doesn't everybody think I'm visable?"
"Question yourself will not help your yourself, but if you're curious, then no."
"Dear, look at the friends you have, they will never see your presence. Everything about you is
just stupid, your dress, doll eye, and everything about you disgusts everyone you know."
"I didn't know I was so disgusting.. I'm so.. Invisable?.."
"Yes. You will be more happier if you killed yourself." Hands the knife. "You will be more happier."
"Rest in peace, child."

To look out to another world,
To see the magic, so perfectly curled.
To see these creatures dance, twirl.
I once saw them as a little girl.
He had claws, fangs and angel wings.
He said we could sing with kings.
Then pulled me into his cold embrace.
Alas he disappeared without a trace.
The leaves have changed with the seasons.
Sense he has left me without any reason.
Many moons have pasted.
Once again I see him in the broken glass.
Man-I am returning for you my sister.
So go to our place become bestir!
Go to the place buried in mist.
The clearing in which the sky and grass kissed.
Girl-I remember this place so clear as crystals tops.
You brushed my hair and made my tears stop.
Compared to you the wet ground was warm.
I held fast to you even though I had been warned.
Man-So meet me there my old friend.
Everyone is wait for your new life to begin.
Girl-I will met you there my brother.
Where we shall, cry up to our new mother.

One morning she awoke to find workmen in her garden. They had already pulled up the sage bush, dumping it unceremoniously, root side up atop the rosemary, atop the basil so that it looked like a miniature baobab, or whatever they call those trees in Africa with the habit of growing upside down. She wished she could shrink down and scurry off into that diminutive landscape. She wished she could call to the workmen and tell them to get out of her yard, to tell them that sage could be burnt to ward off evil spirits. Instead, she let her teacup slip through her fingers. It greeted the floor with the expected crash, a hundred tiny shards singing and reveling in newfound freedom, tracing wet trails across the tile.
She stepped over the puddle and pressed her forehead against the kitchen window. One of the workmen was standing in the corner of the yard, conversing with the policemen she knew would be there. Another trekked slowly around the yard with a metal detector while two more stood wais
Stain's StoryWhen Stain was born, he wasnt called Stain. He was called Junsui (which means Pure in Japanese). His coat was pure white. His mother was proud. She was the type to take pride in bloodline and give little for the personality of a hyena. She felt he was going to mean much success for her family. When he was about 3 months old, however, his coat began to change. Light spatters of red began to appear. His mother thought they were blood stains at first, and as they grew darker, she became more and more disgusted with her son. Soon, his coat seemed to be splattered with blood and the other hyenas took him for a demon.Stain's Story4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

His favorite mare Aida was beside him as always watching his every move. Blaze, Common, Tatyl, and Zant were already by the cool waters drinking in their daily H20.
Spook, however was standing alone watching them with ears back. He had his own herd. It was small just him ,Tatyl and another gelding. Then the infamous altivo took it over. True, spook could have just take off to a bachelor herd but it was too much of a bother for him. so he stuck it out and watched Altivo take over his mares, breed with his mares and give orders to his mares.
He yawned after awhile and looked at Zant who was standing barrel high in the water.
That stallion was weird. Spook couldn't stick his hoof on it but something about him was not right. I mean how could Altivo allow such a stallion in this herd? It was a threat that would only grow bigger as time went on.
Spook's favorite mare Tatyl walked over to him and nuzzled his chin.

"Spirit, our baby is coming- now!" Rain groaned. Her belly looked like someone was poking it from the inside. Spirit stared at her belly- thats when Rain screeched, "SPIRIT! Did you hear me?!" "Uhmm- Erm. Yes Rain. And I'm here by your side the whole time." Rain gave him a soft look. She pushed and finally gave out a signal to her newborn foal. The baby was a bit crosseyed, like Spirit. Then when Spirit saw her coat, he thought of Starlight. He gazed into space- thinking about her. "Hey Spirit. Spirit- SPIRIT!!" Rain yelled. "Huh?! What? What?" Spirit jumped. "Should we name her..... Ghost?" "Ghost..... is a great name. She looks like a little ghost, too." Spirit agreed. Rain licked down her perfect filly, and dazed into her dark blue eyes. They looked just like hers! Rain happily nuzzled her filly. Spirit nudged Rain and looked south from where they were. There stood Maroon. He glared at Ghost. Ghost crouched down- hoping not to be seen.

The night dragged on in the silent household, and the sound of Kiras steady breathing eventually lulled the feline into a comfortable sleep.
The next morning, Kira woke up to soft laughter and a small clicking noise. Then, a bright flash. She opened her eyes and sat up quickly, looking around alertly. She was still at Renas house, on the couch. Wait, the couch?
Good morning, Kira! Kira glared up at Sukis cheerful face, suspicious of her brilliant smile.
Suki, what did you just do?
Nothing! You were sleeping so peacefully there with Shonus jacket on... Suki held up a small silver box. I just had to get a picture! Kira recognized Sukis camera and leapt to her feet, stumbling as her pounding head protested the quick movement. She slumped back down onto the couch with a low growl, trying to stop the room from spinning.

No, thats fine, Kira said, embarrassed. Theyre very comfortable. Suki grinned, patting a space beside her on a small, pine green couch. The boys sat across from each other at a round, wooden table. Maira stood by the door, looking superior and important.
Please have a seat, Kira, and I will begin my story. Kira decided to lean against the wall instead, her arms folded over her chest and a look of disinterest on her face. Maira cleared her throat, and everyone leaned in slightly to listen, eager to hear the details of what they were here for.

sticking up for one another no matter what the problem maybe

with claws and teeth making our way up in this world

The night is softly falling
I must go home to sleep.
But I'll stay one more hour,
For the mountainsides are steep.
Your cottage is so high up,
I'm afraid I might fall.
Or a wolf might find my scent,
That's why I always stall.
So don't flatter yourself,
I want the time to creep,
Because the wolves are out tonight,
And the mountainsides are steep.

Force it through my heart
And up through my eyes,
I will never forgive
I will never forget

How you treated so lightly
that ripped the heart I loved

Is all that held me
Stood me up to look you in the eye,

Has left me black inside
Charred and burned.
Finally, you too

And cried out

Years creep across the walls of tinted panes
and mingle with all things green.
This sanctuary is my home- my cage.
Secured safe inside are all my birds and I.
On dusky nights they emerge
from foliage and mist,
to spread their feathered fans,
play masquerade to lure me deeper into Dark.
These feathered kings place a trap
to keep me hidden within
this wooden box-
this imaginary forest,
inside a tall-tale book.
I'll return to the emerald sea-heart
and dive deep down into
the leaves of broken, shattered glass.
I'll lift a mirror and stare back
at black jade eyes-
hallow, lifeless, pools of ethereal celadon
holding my dear Squanderbird inside.
Look close now,
she'll flash her stained glass feathers
of vermillion and azure, just for show,
for dreams, assisted existence-
Their Greenhouse lives.
