avec cette flamme entre nous deux.
Quelque chose brûle en moi
et c'est mon désespoir.
Je ne pense qu'à dire que non,
que c'est une illusion
mais je brûle et je me perds
quand tu es si, mais si près...
Ne le vois-tu pas ?
Je te veux en flammes, tout comme moi.
A Polished White SinkA Polished White Sink:A Polished White Sink1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
If I had to call this world a blessing;
I think I'd say 'I find it damn depressing.'
You might think I'm stupid from how I'm dressing,
But this is just the heart I feel like wearing.
I see street corners and absent youth;
Don't pretend you don't ever see the night.
Cause when it turns dark, the maggots start crawling;
Looks like God decided to shut out the light.
I can warm my hands on fire and watch the people go,
They don't know who I am, I just go with the flow.
I see streets that seem empty, clogged to the brink;
But that's the reality deep beneath the sink.
It looks clean on the outside, polished porcelain white,
But inside of the pipes are what you keep out of sight.
Yet they're already straining and distorted with strain;
Soon the flood water comes flowing, wash away with the rain.

I Am FlawedFrom body to soul and in between,I Am Flawed9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
They blotch the parchment that is me;
I know of worse flaws I have seen,
I am flawed.
I sometimes lose my temper,
Use my mouth before my mind;
I ponder things I could do better,
And regret them for a time.
I can be harsh, I can be blunt,
I tend to hide my thoughts;
But this is far from what I want:
To be in someone's heart.
Comparisons are hard to make
Since we are all unique.
But half the time my words are fake;
The real me is a freak.
These flaws define me, describe me—
They make me what I am.
In that light, I'm proud to say that

Every year between the ages of ten and eighteen, I sent a letter to NASA. I told them a little bit about myself, the same general description year after year, and always insisted that despite my medical condition, I would one day love to sail through the stars. My dream was to be out there in the universal abyss, exploring every unknown corner until we knew all that we could.
Art would taunt, “Sick kids don’t go to space” before Mom slapped the back of his shoulder with a spatula.
NASA was as nice as they could be, but the bottom line was that we all knew I couldn’t do it. The spaceship would need to have extra space just for the amount of medication and equipment I’d have to bring along, and that was if I could even survive the zero-gravity environment. Whoever wrote the responses encouraged me to keep dreaming, and boasted about donations the association made to various sickle cell charities.

This is not the first time I have come face to face with this foe. Nor will it be the last. Soon I shall annihilate him! And the safety of humanity will fall upon me. Tiddle's the superior!
Well what did you think I was going to say? Do you really think there are such things as super heroes? Don't be silly! Kittens however. We exist. Sadly not all of us have homes and we are forced to roam the streets, keeping those nasty rodents and their diseases at bay. Sadly, though, your human minds do not see us as the reliable cleaners we are, you see us on the streets and assume we are worthless or broken.

It's kinda short but, oh well... Enjoy!
You laid on your bed, crying and sobbing on your pillow. You had a fight with your parents earlier because you had finally told them about your relationship with Julchen.
You have been dating the Prussian woman for three years now and you finally decided to tell your parents about her. They weren’t happy that their only daughter was a lesbian.
You three entered on a big fight that went on for hours. At the end, your father threw you into your room and told you not to get out until your mind cleared.
And there you were. Sobbing as the words your parents told you at the end of the discussion:
“______, make a choice: be our straight daughter…” your mother started but then your father finished the sentence. “Or a lesbian stranger”
As you replayed the words over and over, just to make sure you’ve heard right, m

That my soul could not erase
The design of the dotted line
That my finger slowly traced
It's so easy to cry and I've
Never had to force any tears
So, it's safe to just cut away
Before thought can interfere
This burning in me lasted, filling my veins
The sun beneath the clouds continued my way
But then it gleamed in front of me
Like a star it dropped and blocked my vision
Simple yet unfinished
Love is a palette mixed
With colors I have never known
Folded it up and watched it fall
A crumpled mess of everything
Even if it's "not my problem"
And though I try to hide it deep within my heart
The tears in my eyes amount to lies
And cut away into another day
To let go of this aching soul
That I stole away so deep
Quietly, I began to speak
As I strained to find the key
I'd created my own charade
And a world that I'd concieved
All the colors began to run
In this lie that I believed
I gave away the bags
I'd filled with regret
I threw away the thoughts

Like every other day,
Not feeling like P.Diddy,
I go and get dressed,
And grab my things then leave for school,
I listen to my iPod the entire ride,
Trying to disappear into my own world,
Like every other day,
Once I take a step inside those blue doors,
The doors that seemed so big that day,,
Like the entrance to a castle in a nightmare,
That will haunt you for the rest of your life,
I enter through the gate and suddenly,
All eyes are on me.
The girl that doesn't talk much,
The one that sits in the back of the class,
The teenager that doesn't state her opinion,
The child that has always loved the darkness,
The weird kid with the cuts and scars,
The ones everyone was told about last night.
I walk to where I usually sit,
People still looking at me,
Watching my arms and thighs,
The pain for each step I take,
They can see it in my eyes,
The hurt I inflict on myself,
My friend gives me a giant hug,
Like one of those hugs you can only get from a teddy bear,

I wear so many they're all so heavy
They hurt my back and strain my neck
But matters not any pain I feel
Layer them on, more masks to wear
I don't care
I dance through the grey ballroom
Across this ugly stage of living and life
I look so beautiful to all my onlookers
My masks are all they see tonight
But that's alright
For one I met, I tried to show, one dancer I felt was equal to me
Together we danced the salsa and a brief tango
And in some moment of passion, I lost my mind
I started shedding masks along the floor
Like a fool
This masquerade has gone on too long
Eighteen years of dancing to boring songs
I can see through all their masks, as I swayed on by
But just this once, I wanted to show what I held inside
Tears I cried
Off came my mask of steel that everyone saw
I showed her that I wasn't impervious to pain
I wanted to be human, but it hurt to be such
So I became this ugly Golem that no one could harm
I left it behind
Next were the scarves I wore to lure others in

But what exactly is a “friend?”
By the definition in which I read
That is not how you relate to me
You yell and scream at me
That’s all you ever seem to want to do
And I can’t seem to find
The strength to fight back
You blame me for your pain
You blame me for your suffering
When you are the one who shreds me to pieces inside
While I sit there and take it
What have I done to you?
Why won’t you leave me alone?
You follow me all day
And all night I hear your
How can you blame me
For everything bad that has happened to you?
And even then
If those words, unlike most, are true
Is that really an excuse?
You complain about how hard your life is
And I try to understand
Every day it’s a different story
One day your mother died in a car crash
The next she has cancer
Then a fatal pregnancy complication
You say your father’s a drunk
He died in the war
Love Is...Love Is…Love Is...11 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Love is patient, love is kind, it does not boast, it does not envy,
It does not delight in evil; but with the truth it does revel in
Love isn’t proud, it isn’t dishonorable, it doesn’t record right or wrongs, nor is it self-seeking,
It always protects, it always hopes, it will always carry on despite oppositions
Love, when it is true, will never fail you or me,
It will take two beings and form them into one,
Love will always conquer evil, no matter the circumstances
It will live on forever and ever, it will never be done
Love lives on through children, and their children’s children; this is why it will forever stay in existence
It is a smile on a child’s little face; it is the protective holding of hands between siblings
Love is a warm embrace between a daughter and her mother
It is tried, it is true, and it is unwavering
Love is a son playing catch with his father
It is most of all real, and I feel everyone can have th

I do hurt.
I do cry.
I do love.
I do feel.
I do get crushed.
I do regret.
But please never think that while I may never show these things in front of you, that I don’t feel them.
Because I do.
More than you could ever imagine.
I’m a hyper sensitive person, forced into a role of strength.
It is just a rare occasion when my reserve breaks and I show it in front of people.
And when this happens, I reach a state of such openness and vulnerability that I fear.
Because I can withstand a thousand blows, but just one word can cut me down. And at that moment, I fear what could be said to me.
I’m very sorry if anyone who see this thinks of me as cold, or heartless, or unfeeling.
It's just in my life, I have had people who rely on me to be the strong one who keeps a level head and calm emotions.
And so when I break in front of someone, I apologize profusely.
Because what if they were someone that needed me
