Life's Journey - What It Takes To Come Alive pt.2Life is a journey. One's destination is unique to our hearts and lives in our souls. It is a state of the mind. A new way of seeing things. An altered perception. A notion of achievement. An idea of happiness. Our destination is never a place, nor are the things we want most really things at all. We take the journey. Our destiny is shaped in our moments of decision. As fate looks down upon us, we follow the roads of desire with home in our hearts and our hearts on our sleeves choosing our paths, making new ones, searching until our destination sits in sight on the horizon. We keep moving. We take others along with us. We wave hellos, we wave goodbyes. We take our journey. Our treasures of love, collections of loss, bundles of experience, wisdom, and memories we've picked up along the way are carried high on our backs and we grow. We have courage. We take risks. We observe. We change. We develop. We cry. We fall down. We get up. We smile. We follow our dreams. We listen to our hearts.

PainPain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An unpleasant feeling you may think
The feeling cannot be described in only ink
It can come and go in just a blink
It would be the bitter taste if life would be a drink
It's what gets us down
It's what leaves us with a frown
Sometimes makes us want to leave town
And sometimes makes us want ourselves to drown
It sure isn't much fun
We always want it to be over and done
We can't make it undone
Pain, is a measurement of will power
Recovering from pain may take more than an hour
But in the end you will blossom like a flower
Soul of a WriterI see a blank page, and I feel a spark inside my heart. The spark ignites my mind, raising its ever-glowing embers to a slowly building flame. The cold white blankness of the page angers me.Soul of a Writer3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Wasted potential, that's what it is. Any space of white could be used. I stare into its emptiness and my mind begins to turn its gears. My hand itches for a pen.
I am a writer and my soul is fire. This page shall feel my flame.
I need to bring heat to the paper and that is what the words are. Hot. The black ink smolders on the white of the paper. The words charge from my mind, down my arm and on to the page.
They are the army of my soul, warriors of fire and ink. They enforce my will upon the cold of the paper; bringing the stories in my mind to life on the page, and the more ink on the page, the more fire for my mind. The warriors of words fight back the emptiness, charging into it and slashing away with flaming swords lighting the page aflame.
It is a soul-powered machine, constructing my linguis

As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine

When I woke up, I was lying in bed with only boxers on. Wait... I did fall asleep on the couch... full dressed and Pewdie was sleeping on the couch too. What happened? Did he carry me up here? Why didn't I wake up? Normally I wake up by the smallest things that happen. But now to the most important question... Why am I only in my boxers? And where the hell is my mask? Did he... Did he take off all of my clothes and my mask?
Felix cut off my thoughts as he walked in and said: "Good morning, my dear Ryan. You ready to head out?" Then he kissed me. I was confused, happy and shocked at the same time. I didn't understand what's going on. Why would he kiss me?! And why did he call me Ryan? He never calls me by my real name! I slowly raised my hand and stroke over my lips where they connected with Felix'.
He walked over to the closet, picked out some clothes and put them right beside me on the bed. He looked me in the eyes and smiled. I was shocked and started to cover my face.
A Welcomed ChapterI've traveled a long way,A Welcomed Chapter2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
endured all the tragic hardships.
Faught through emotional decay,
all the while, the shadows binded;
carrying me to the abyss of styx.
So I give in, I've said goodbye,
to another chapter in this ever changing life.
I've carried the burden of my mistakes
along this path that's been so long;
fighting with the eclipse of right and wrong.
I wait for the next challange to unfold,
with determination written on my face.
Tell those close that I've finally left this place,
with heartache and so much left untold;
the world has been much too cold.
I keep my distance, staying withdrawn
because there is no one that I can count on.
Maybe no one will notice, I lay my head down
waiting for the chance to be so far gone.
with the unfathomable darkness enveloping around.
Continuous VoicesIt all began when I was tenContinuous Voices2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I found what lingered in my head disturbing
And it wasn’t until I grabbed a pen
And saw what truly lingered when I began writing.
There were continuous voices within my head
I was not one to favor them dead
Although, they had violet images attached
The way I wrote them matched.
Since then, the voices have changed
Octaves have risen and lowered
Their words have exchanged
And eventually became uncensored.
These continuous voices have brought war
Ones with an uprising roar
And at moments I want to kill the sound
For they are so profound.
Yet, they continue to crescendo
And welcome me to a hidden story
And sometimes they decrescendo
Leaving me alone to the world’s beauty.
Eight years with these continuous voices
And they have given me remarkable choices
One with the most beautiful fiery star
To the one with an unforgiving scar.

scold him for walking uninvited into my home.
I empty the pockets
of his worn out coat
and the happiness of a city,
scatters across my kitchen's floor.
"Aren't you ashamed?
You steal our dreams,
our long awaited goals,
the hope, the memories,
the fleeting I love you's,
and a newborn's first yawn.
Give it back to the people!
That's not what they had planned at all!"
He's old and weary, yet he smiles,
words form in a soft tone,
a total contrast to my screaming voice.
"Oh, but I am a servant of Time,
I can't bring back what's lost,
some dreams are meant to be stolen,
they're too grand to come true."
He twitches when he sees my gun,
a little revolver I load and aim to my skull.
"My dreams are mine you can't steal them tonight,
I'm not a puppet in your parade,
I'll not be driven by your strings and galore,
It's my life and I choose to defy!"
It doesn't even hurt when my blood spatters to the floor.
The IndividualYou wear your skin, with mask of sin,The Individual1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A spiderweb of lies. Of "individuals",
Breaking ties, alone at last
They seem to hide, a fixation of vanity...
I am the "individual"!
This is my golden ritual,
Refuse all that is me,
A web of lies I be!
But can you see, what you've become,
Showing these scars made by none-
Other than you?
They were made just for you...
They were made just by you...
Made to be pitied too...
You are the "individual"!
Lies are your golden ritual,
Refuse what you should be,
To live with agony!
I'm Putting Out Your StarI've spent so many hours looking at you. I know I shouldn't, but I'm drawn to you regardless. My eyes connect with your own magnetic and remarkable pair creating an impossible, but perfect match. Sometimes, when you looked my way, I pretended that you were the one watching me. Even though I know there was someone behind me I dare not look; to know who is capturing your gaze would be a torment I lack the courage to bare. I've taken out my heart and laid it undisguised on the floor, but I don't think you ever noticed it.I'm Putting Out Your Star6 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
From time to time I saw you embrace that other boy and I cannot help but wonder what it was about him. I watched as you hug, as you touched and talked in a flawless symphony that was rightfully mine to be in. Did he know how lucky he was to once be in your arms? To hear your soft voice being poured solely into his ear, whilst I had to strain to catch a whisper? Did he hurt as much as I when you were not around?
You were a fascination of mine; one that was impracticable t

I saw the shadow of death floating above me.
I was told,
today would be my last day.
It was then,
I realized how much I need you.
What I would do to see your face,
the journey I would make.
I'd go the distance,

Walk until my very soul starts to bleed,
because when night falls,

The key to your heart,

You only ever can see me
The side long glances complete with a wink and smile
Send my heart pounding
I miss your touch
The way you fingers held my hips
The way you're hands play with my hair
The way you're arms take me to a new world,
Where it is only you and me
I miss you're hugs
The way you pull me close
Where I can feel only you
Where I can only think of you
I miss your kisses
The way you would just give me a look as you lean in
The way you hold my head
The softness of your lips pressed against mine
And you still find a way to pull me close,
When I thought that there was no more room,
You are all that I can think about,
I can't wait until you come home
I miss you're love
I know you'll be back soon
Because you miss me too
But I need you
With out you Im missing part of me
I LOVE you,
And - I miss you.

It began and ended with a word.
Not a particularly strong or powerful word, but a word that changed everything. It wasn't too long or difficult to spell. It wasn't uncommon either. In fact, it was a perfectly ordinary word, but, I suppose, its commonplace origin is what made it so special.
I loved that word.
But the word doesn't mean much without the story along with it and I was always one for telling good stories.
I ignored the call from the other room and remained seated. That tone wasn't unfamiliar. Taking a bite from my toast, I waited for him to call again. It wouldn't be more than ten—
"Sammy! Come quickly! I've gone an' done it!" he shouted. I turned just as he poked his head into the room with a bright smile across his face.
"What did you do?" I asked as I walked towards his study. Chris had said those same words nearly twelve times this week. Every other day he had called me in for some discovery.

He removed his back from a leaning position, looking interested. "Really? What happened then?"
She sipped a coffee and looked outside.
"When I was 6, my parents are keenly looking at the television because of a woman of success, leaving me to play at the background. I was playing with both dolls and cars then. Mom took a look at me and began picking up some toys. I have a usual habit of jumping off things, so I climbed up a chair near me. Suddenly, the broken car of mine moved and bumped on one of my dolls, alerting the cat. It ran across the room and nudged the chair hard, tipping it over. The next thing I knew I lay on the floor."

where trees would bend
and the grass would sway
A little girl had the strangest thought
and did't like the feelings it brought
She saw it much clearer
when she looked in the mirror
that she wasn't what was expected at all
Her hair was too brittle
and she was too little
and her nose was too big
so she looked like a pig
She used to be happy
she used to be glad
But today she was not
Today she was sad
She put away the glass
She put it on a shelf
She wanted most certainly not be herself
She hated her legs and she hated her arms
She had forgotten to think of her charms
She told all her friends
and her thoughts only grew
until everyone else also thought it was true
Her thoughts were like a contagious disease
It even began to infect all the trees!
The birds felt imperfect
and the flowers so cheap
So all of the insects began to weep
The sky started crying
Like the whole world was dying and
Even the rain
didn't want to remain
so runny like blood in a vein
