I Am No Writer.So this guy had a problem.I Am No Writer.2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
he had a problem with me
and was asking questions about my mentality,
trying to make me realize
that it's no use being a writer
because they can never make green
and while their minds are unchained,
they will never be free,
stuck in an apartment in front of a computer screen
destined to fail and never make it to the big leagues
because there's a million writers
and only one of me
and that I'll never be able make a difference.
Well, I told him this.
I am no writer.
I am a construction worker building on a foundation of sand,
building with ideas and thoughts,
ink and sleepless nights,
and I'll keep on building until I reach another mind.
I am no writer.
I am an artist painting words on a page
and living and breathing characters
living in an age that wouldn't have existed
if it wasn't for black ink
and rainy days.
I am no writer.
I am a pilot guiding a plane,
picking up travelers along the way
so that they can see through my eyes
and feel what
Still Into YouWhy am I still so hung up on you ?!Still Into You2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It's been 9 months 8 days ...
The clock chimes midnight
Another day has passed.
Another day of nothingness,
Another day without you.
I still think about you,
They'll tell me I'm stupid and
I should get over it , but I can't
I no longer sleep at night.
Looking desperately for a deeper meaning,
A deeper title than 'just friends' as you repeatedly called us.
I do wonder..
What's it like from your perspective ?
I pass your workplace everyday
That maybe you'll look up and notice me
That I'll see regret, sorrow, anger
Something in your eyes
But you seem apathetic by the whole thing
Perhaps you have moved on
And I really was nothing to you
And that hurts the most.
For a while I actually thought I was over you
A new face to replace yours
New memories and laughter to share
A different shade of eyes to fall for
But somehow you crawled your way back in

and I thought it was my soldier,
but it was only a letter
that didn't have a sender;
just an handwritten letter
left by my front door.
There comes a moment in life
where the glass ceiling crumbles and cracks
under the weight of a summer storm,
where the beauty of the world
fades to black and white and gray
as you stare off into the distance
too numb to think
and too shocked to question why.
When everything boils down to a moment -
when your past and your future
collide with each other
and obliterate the present,
when the things you had taken for granted
and you're just left with an empty shell,
a blank easel with no paper to draw on,
while paint is being thrown left and right
but you're untouchable,
just you, pure and white,
yet blacker than the ash you walk on,
the remnants of the explosion
that broke your heart and soul and mind.
That is the feeling
when there's a knock on the front door
and you think that it is your

Wendy typed quickly, and sent a message before she could talk herself out of it again.
Wendy: Hey. Can I come get my stuff? I’ll bring you all of yours…
To her surprise, he answered. Immediately.
Stan: Sure. Come by whenever. I’m home all weekend.
Wendy: I can’t stay…
Stan: Didn’t ask you to.
Wendy: Ok… Do you still have my iPod?
Stan: Let me check.
Stan: Putting in a box for you now.
Wendy: Thanks. I’ll be over in an hour or so.
Stan: That’s fine.
With no warning he logged off and she was left staring at what might be their last conversation.
She didn’t want him back; not this time. She never would’ve imagined it before, but Eric was everything she wanted in a boyfriend. He was little arrogant, a little bit of a prick sometimes, but the arguments added to the attraction. Their chemistry was off the charts - even more so when they were angry with each other. He was all th

Butters was taking a walk down the empty road of South Park at 8pm. His parents had started yelling at him, again, and he couldn’t take it. He didn’t normally sneak of out his house, but the young, blonde boy felt a little rebellious that night.
He had been walking for a good 15 minutes when he suddenly saw a figure underneath a dimming street light. Butters, who never feared of strangers, slowly walked up to the lone figure. As he got closer, he saw that the person was turned away from him. He noticed that it was a boy around the same age with dirty blonde, unkept hair and tattered clothing. The one thing that caught Butters eyes, though, was the orange jacket.
“Ken?” Butters called out, getting closer to the boy in question. When Butters was about a foot away, the taller boy turned around. Butters gasped, holding his hands up to his mouth in fright. Kenny McCormick was covered in bruises and was bleeding from his mouth and

You walked down the street briskly and cheerfully. Today you were wearing a checkered button up shirt that was open in the front so that the white shirt you wore underneath it was visible, distressed blue jeans, and a pair of cowboy boots. You knew you looked out of place in the getup, but you didn't mind receiving extra glances today.
The entire day had been spent exploring Tokyo. Really you just went on a walk, got lost once or twice and bought a English-Japanese dictionary you had been lucky enough to spot in a shop. You really hadn't spent too much time getting lost though, because you slept until 10am after having an until-midnight-in-Japan-but-even-worse-in-America video chat with your best friend about everything that had happened with the two of you in the last week. She was especially excited to hear about that days events.
Now you were on your way to McDonalds to get an early dinner/late lunch. You had waited until shortly before four so that Kiku would be getting

You know, there has been a long history of Butters Coming over to my house to hang out, and walk with me. That has happened for as long as I could remember.
Every Saturday morning since 2003, Butters started to show up at my front door at exactly 9:00 a.m. I still have the faintest idea how it started. Possibly because whenever the both of us showed up for another day of school, I think that he would notice all the self mutilations that were on my body, like cuts, bruises, and cigarette burns on my arms, legs, and neck, and all that somehow made him feel sad for me; he maybe wanted to make sure that I was okay (and still alive), and take me out of my depressed state. I think those might be the reasons why he would come to my house.
I don’t want to say it’s cute, but: every Saturday morning, Butters would wear the same, exact cloths that he would usually wear on a cold, snowy Saturday. His cloths would include his sky blue cotton jacket, his sun

Twenty six days.
The first weekend wasn't so bad. He tried to keep himself as busy as Kyle must have been. There was little time for texting and even less for phone calls. Between Kyle's courses and conferences and his own football practice and weightlifting schedule, there were only a precious few moments that overlapped comfortably enough to allow them to catch up with each other. But it was worth the effort.
Kyle hadn't been allowed to bring his iPad, or even carry his phone during his courses. It had been days since Stan had heard his voice. Short messages sent when either of them had the time had to suffice. It wasn't really enough, but it was all they had.
When he had free time, Kyle usually didn't. Instead, he spent most of his spare waking hours with Kenny, which even resulted in hanging out with Cartman a time or two. It was oddly natural having Eric around again. The three of them played video games and talked about his newfound wealth, carefully av

After that morning, Sonic didn't really know what to do with Scourge. Sonic knew perfectly well that Scourge was still his opposite, and that they would have completely different interests. While Sonic suggested going on a walk out to the town, Scourge simply wanted to stay home and play video games. Sonic kind of figured Scourge would be a little more active, but soon figured out that Scourge actually never wants to really do anything.
Sonic decided to go Scourge's way this time, because he quite frankly still felt bad for him with his situation. After so many bad experiences with him, seeing Scourge in a somewhat sad light was kind of depressing for Sonic. Sonic first pulled out Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube. He really liked the game, and he used to play it a lot with Silver whenever he came over. Scourge quickly turned it down, though, because he wasn't the type of person who played RPGs. He looked through the array of games that Sonic had

Nothing crazy happened. We pretty much just hung out. But, fuck it was great.

_____ nodded in comprehension and glanced around her for a moment, adjusting her grip on her suitcase.
Kiku mentally raised an eyebrow at her. “_____-kun, why did you ask me what ‘How are you?’ meant if you were not going to ask anyone?”
She shrugged. “I dunno. Just curious.”
A small smile, barely visible, crawled across Kiku’s face as he turned his attention forward. “I am glad that you were able to come with me to visit my relatives. . .but I did not expect to be your translator.”

When you first started working at your company you had met this group of women at one of the tables in the gigantic lunch room. You'd quickly become friends even though you rarely got together outside of lunch. Michelle was generally accepted to be the gossip queen in the group. This week, her hair was bright red with white highlights and she had been wearing only black suits and high heels. She was also the most eccentric of the group.

Tuesday, September 3rd: Tuna Salad and Macaroni, with a thirty percent chance of barfing after lunch.
I was really glad I brought my lunch, even if it was just another bologna sandwich.
Senior year was going pretty well. It was that Tuesday that the girls in the twelfth grade had picked to go on some field trip thing. According to Wendy Testaburger it was an "enrichment experience". She arranged it, being class president and all. I think it just like an easy way for all of them to ditch class. I'll give them that - really great plan on their part. Us guys would've never come up with something like that; hence, we were all stuck at school.
Although the day pretty much reeked of testosterone, it wasn't really too bad. Having the girls gone made things funnier and more laid back, but otherwise it didn't really affect anything. I sat with Stan and Kyle at lunch like I always did. It was pretty obvious that neither of them had even not

Everyone seemed to be having a good time at that point, and no one was fighting. This put Scourge at ease, but he still wasn't comfortable with talking prominently with the rest of the group. He just listened on some of their conversations.
