40 children a year drown in 5 gallon water pails. In your lifetime, you are almost 14 times more likely to drown in a 5 gallon water pail then be killed by a Pit Bull.
Pit Bulls were known as the number 1 family dog in the 20th century. But the very same qualities that make this breed such a wonderful pet are also valued by those who use them as fighting dogs, training them in brutal methods, some even going as far as to sew bottle caps under the dogs skin to ensure they're in constant pain, to make them more aggresive.
150 people a year are killed by falling coconuts, making you 50 times more likely to be killed by a palm tree then by a Pit Bull.
Pit Bull puppies, ones that have never fought before, are often killed because their parents were fighters.

It's even been said a million times.
But now I think this is the last time it will be said.
Not by everyone.
But by these lips.
This is the last time these lips will speak those five words.
These lips have no motivation to speak.
These lips have no reasons to smile.
These lips are dead.
These lips are gone.
This heart has no reason to love.
This heart has no reason to hope.
This heart is dead.
This heart is gone.
This mind has no reason to think.
This mind has no reason to dream as in this realm, only nightmares exist.
This mind is dead.
This mind is gone.
These hands have no reason to feel.
These hands have no reason to wipe away tears, there are none.
These hands are dead.
These hands are gone.
This soul has no reason to exist.
This soul has no reason to posses this body.
This soul is not dead.
This soul is not gone.
This soul is trapped in something that is dead and gone.

I can always expect
Anything other than happiness
A cry in the night is what I hear
To be shown the light is what I fear
Why should I Scream or cry?
Ive left everything behind
A sound comes from my soul
That cries for me instead
That way a single tear has never been shed
Cant I always expect the same?
I'm to afraid to change
I believe there is no more hope
left for me
So I left my heart out at sea
Sent it away,didn't need it any more
It just seemed like some useless chore
They scream at me
Like I'd ever dare to dream
My brain has dried of imagination
Leaving me with no sensation
I wont cry,I know I'm fine
So I humbly decline
All the pity everyone gives
Cause its to much trouble just to live

"We're pals, aren't we?" he says "the best of friends."
His eyes gleam red like rubies in the blackness of the darkened room,
Beacons to a rocky demise
Avoid the Dark-house at all costs, its blood red signal does not steer ships away
From the razor sharp outcroppings
The red light beckons them towards it with the lust for wealth, fame,
The promise of untold power
"Kick the bucket."
Gripping the steering wheel of the ship tightly,
Blisters begin to form on the palm of my hands like small mountains
The pain is raw, potent
The schooner does not obey
As the needle thin tower grows closer,
Rising triumphantly over the ship as if it were a toy
Fear seizes the heart with a vice like grip,
Cold like the hands of Death
It beats loudly within my chest,
Trying to escape
A flash of lightning reveals the looming structure,
Black as onyx
An inescapable nightmare
Watching, always watching

when your all alone
and you find out that your dream

to something thas already gone
to be the wrong
no matter how
bad things seem to go
you got to know
how much he really loves you
take your pigs out in the snow
make your lies out in a line
when you fall and go
and to look at the sky like a fiend
it's your lust that is busting the scene
to something thas already gone

cuz ive been here for a while now
and ive started to see the dream
for all that it is and a lie down
when everyone runs and hides
holding on to something thas already gone

Constantly making mistakes.
Doing and saying things
that I later regret.
I never meant for this to happen.
If only I had a time machine
so I could go back
and fix the mistakes I made.
But I don't.
All I can do
Hope for you to forgive me.
And try harder in the future
to be more perfect than I was with you.

to her? She’d have come back to protect those destined to die. None of us have completed
We were out of hope.
The cavern ceiling finally began to fall, the rocks crashing on the ground and crumbling

But it was too late. She couldn’t do anything.
And the silver light of her essence washed over me, and it was the last thing I saw before

I woke up in the same light I had been buried in. My body, being pulled by an invisible force, was drawn from the rubble. I was barely awake, my entire body burning

Crying, shaking. Scared.
These dreams taking their toll.
Too tired to do anything, but too frightened to sleep,
I get up, go outside. Breathe. Look up.
Expecting a blank sky, city lights,
I was wrong, awestruck. Speechless.
I actually saw stars.
And suddenly, the hell I live
Seemed so far away.
Oscar Wilde once said:
"We're all in the gutter,
But some of us are looking at the stars."
I've always thought that cynical, somewhat.
But now I like to think he was looking at Mars.

A skeletal page for all to see
Beneath this five feet of somber stone
Lies the epitaph stolen from me.
This desolate church entombs my ghost
Listen to my song.. each note..
Read the rhyme within each shattered bone
Seek the gift at my severed throat.
I once possessed such magic
My beauty bound him like a spell
And for his captivating witch
All hate he did expel
He wrote and sang songs in my name
Music I shall never hear again
Death prized him from my loving arms
Pain rendered me insane.
Our castle where we had danced in love
Then echoed with my own deaths prelude
Lilith's disdain and howling wolves
Shared my mournful solitude.
No conjuration would bring him back
Thus my heart, like him, did decay
I suffered through a lingering death
Whilst my body withered away.
I longed for release; to see his face
Yet my family ceased my flight
With a stake through the heart that loved him so
They imprisoned my soul that night.
How I waited... how I'm waiting still

Watch as the only path is swallowed
No way out, no where to run
Dont worry, its just begun
Frozen by fear, blinded by smoke
Tears flow as you start to choke
Can't move, fall to your knees
No one to help make the pain ease
The flames climb forever higher
No safety net from the path of fire
And as you take you final breath
Just open your arms, and welcome death

The Photo FrameThe fatigue pulls on my eyelids.The Photo Frame3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sleep deprivation tearing and scattering,
The fine machine that used to be my brain.
I see you, you know, every night that I lie awake
When dream forces itself upon me,
With visions of broken glass;
Glass that used to be a photo frame.
It stood in the hall, facing the foyer
Waiting to bestow its little piece of heaven
Upon every visitor to enter our home.
And in the summer, when the days were warm and the door hung open,
It and its thousand words stood in all their inanimate glory,
Sharing itself with the entire world.
Between its glass face and velvet backing,
It held a memory very dear to me.
Looking at it took me back to times of happiness,
When everything was fresh and new,
Giving me appreciation for the things I had,
For the things I loved.
But when the things I loved were gone,
I became addicted, and the past became my drug.
I would often take that photograph and shut myself away,
Gazing into the picture, losing myself in the past;
And in that mom

She sucked in her lip like she had something to say but she was trying not to cry as hard as she felt she would if she let go.
Her wings were clipped off with her lover's loss of faith and everything was over, and everything was hurting, and empty, and anger. She couldn't fly in the pink air anymore, and she crashed to the ground with the rest of them, the hurt and the lonely.
Her heart may never mend but her wings could grow back, they could with someone's love, a friend, anyone, to care for her, to tell her that it'll be okay.
She's all alone though.
She hasn't eaten in a week and her stomach is concave and her back is lined with her ribs and spine, and she looks broken.
Underneath her blue eyes are gray and sunken circles above her hallowed cheek bones. She's becoming ill.
And she's all alone.
Everyone "cares", everyone is "concerned" and everyone is "there"

From night after night of waking hours,
And kicked my system into gear this mornin,
With caffeine, caffeine, and then some more.
Are you alright?
I stayed up last night,
Silently screaming through,
hallucinations, of me and him,
Bring those feelings, back again
How are you?
Last night I was reminded,
Of everything I hate about me,
Everything you once told me,
And it all seemed true again.
Are you sure?
Beat up inside, crying,
unable to function,
I hope one day,
You know I'm lying.
