Butterfly KissesI wasn't always so small,Butterfly Kisses2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
my waist not so slim,
my ribs not as hollow as my heart.
I was just scared again.
I never took my life,
but you know I tried.
I just couldn't do it.
part of me didn't want to die.
and I wasn't always so fragile,
so quick to flinch from touch,
but I didn't know how to love you,
that's why I ran so much.
Your eyes were always gentle,
brown but filled with tears,
of the future's painful years.
but still each day you held me,
and I wouldn't let you know,
that everyday it mattered.
Every day, you didn't let me go.
You never really noticed,
because you weren't the first.
but I was getting thin,
and my weight was getting worse.
Until one day you decided,
it was time to let you start
It began with the butterflies,
the wings against my heart.
At first I still resisted,
I fought and kicked and screamed.
but then one day you showed me,
this is what love means.
Every single day,
I threatened to take the knife,
you painted one more butterfly,

I untangle its cellophane bindings

So I pluck out its

And sew them
Onto other dust poems
Like the mismatched socks
Of a child
Just like murder is an art,

She unbuttons her dress
She undoes her bra

The Man With The Paper MaskThe face you've seen and recognize,The Man With The Paper Mask1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The man you thought you knew,
He's nothing but a coward,
Hiding behind his paper mask
He thinks it makes him invincible,
But all it really does is show
How vulnerable he truly is,
On the inside of his soul
The mask is up, he stands aloft
Declared the king of the world,
But in the darkness of his home
The paper falls, and his pain and sorrow show.
He wants to end it all,
Finish with this cruel, pointless charade,
But he can't show his weakened state,
He can't reveal his true face
His mind filled with the imagery
Of worthlessness and shame,
He doesn't seem to realize
His mask's what's standing in the way!
The mask is up, he stands aloft
Declared the king of the world,
But in the darkness of his home
The paper falls, and his pain and weakness show
Why continue down the same road?
It's time to kill this alter ego!
Light the flames!
Set your former self ablaze!
The mask is up, he stands aloft

Chapter 7: From Deep Within
Dark came out from the mirror in the Minish Woods which was still laid on the ground. It was as if he just came out of a swimming pool, grabbing onto the mirror's edges. He spotted Link near one of the fallen logs of the forest. With the magical cap in hand, he approached Link, who never turned back to look at him.
"Hey Link. I got it."
"Dark look at this."
Link turned around that made Dark's eyes widen and his mouth agape. What Link was holding in his hands was the stuffed cucco, Robin. It got a bit dirty due to the forest's dust and mud, but it can easily be rubbed off.
"Link, where'd you get him?" said Dark, not knowing whether he should be happy or baffled.
"I found him right here, on this trunk over here."
Dark still looked a bit bewildered, but he tried his best to shrug it off. He knew that there was something they both needed to go to and fast! He returned the cucco back to Link's house, then settled himself to their plan.

Scarlet Demon SacrificeScarlet Demon Sacrifice7 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Scarlet number one was killed
From human hates and hand.
Brought up from his own grave,
He became the most feared.
Stronger than the gods
He had his agenda in mind.
He would avenge all of the chain demons that had lived.
Fell for (a) human
He could not draw her blood
Even for himself.
Starving himself to his death
He fought for all wrong
No such hunger could have been more any defeating.
Scarlet number two were twins
One male and one female.
Sibling fights and different paths,
They never got along.
Having children with someone else
That he did not care for
He betrayed and he was simply taken as a fool.
Mad Cyclops Tarian
Loved no one truly
He would die thinking of greed
No one’s there for him.
Not even his sister or wife would dig his grave
No one would know what remains of his lone ash.
Scarlet number three was free
Until when she married.
She became a slave to her
Unloving husband’s dad.
She would die with the Scarlet curse through her veins.

The Story Of The Bench From the top of a grand tree, a single brown leaf, having been buffeted by the breeze, broke free from its branch and floated gently down, coming to rest gently on an old wooden park bench.

The woman sat only for a minute, however, before standing up and pacing behind the bench, checking her watch frequently, rubbing her hands together and otherwise jittering. As she paced, she noticed a couple, a young boy and a young girl, walking arm in arm down the sidewalk.
“Honey-man,” the girl whispered as she kissed the boy on his cheek.
“Sugar-plum,” he whispered back, kissing the girl’s forehead. The two were, at that point, right in front of the bench, and the boy nudged the girl’s side to indicate it before the

Then when the magic's faded,

With my battered red sneakers,
As we curled ourselves into the floorboards of your attic.
Letting the dank air suffocate,
the screaming angels
Residing in the back of our lungs.
Aching to be burnt out with surges
Of nicotine fueled suicide.
We we’re the type to store pain in ounces
And place them in jars,
As though they held some kind of worth,
In a world in which pain is the latest trend.
Teenagers are the hormonal disease spread out like
A plague, that everyone grows out of
Or at least can medicate.
We were the lucky ones, who made it out alive,
Or so they say.
A chip off the shoulder
A fish in the sea
We we’re nothing special, just burnt out carcasses
Trying to get by.
We’d spend our days on concrete rooftops,
Humming constellations under our breaths
Hoping for our dilated pupils to focus on the ground ahead
And not the oncoming traffic.

And you replied

The music flowed out of the small radio/alarm clock Otera used most often, with the clicks and crinkles that would confuse her younger sister, the second one. Otera understood the song on a level her little sister never would be able to. Otera was a child of the 90s, but her younger sister wasn't. The thudding of little elephant steps on the stairs up to Otera's room warned Otera of her younger sister's oh-so-stealthy approach, so she hit the stop button on the clock-radio, turning off the music. Tigre, Otera's sister, came you with a small scowl because the computer wasn't working, one that almost made Otera laugh, as the computer was: a) turned off, b) unplugged, and c) disconnected from the internet. "Otera, the computer won't work! I can't play!" Tigre complained. Otera frowned, what

-The Qur'an says, "O ye who believe! Turn unto Allah in sincere repentance! It may be that your Lord will remit from you your evil deeds and bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, on the day when Allah will not abase the Prophet and those who believe with him. Their light will run before them and on their right hands; they will say: Our Lord! Perfect our light for us, and forgive us! Lo! Thou art Able to do all things," (66:8-9). Notice how it says if you are sincere you </i>may receive forgiveness.
-The problem there is this: how do you know you're sincere enough to be forgiven? If you say yes, are you being boastful? If you say no, are you being too humble?
-As a Christian, I know there is no 'may' or guesswork. By calling on the name of the Lord, I am Saved.

I've worked for decades studying the conversion of biological to mechanical electricity and have found that only through animals does it prove more successful. (laughter) Believe me, I've tried on one or two human subjects. Criminals. Noone will miss them. I cannot explain why but it may be because the neural activity of these "animals" is more devoted on locomotion which requires the most energy.

If the police caught her…if she was thrown in jail…it would all be over. Julia ran as hard as her legs would allow and gripped her only treasure in her arms tightly. Clutched in her sweaty and shaky arms was a simple statue, about 2 feet long and a foot tall. It was some kind of long and elegant dragon made of red crystal! It was so beautiful, and it seemed to catch every ray of light that hit it and bounce it back twice as bright. It was the only thing she’d ever stolen that she could never bring herself to sell. She’d been holding onto it for almost 2 years now and she’d grown a sort of attachment to this dragon statue. She had to protect it…she had to keep it.

Vaati merely let his friends chase each other as he deeply stared into the embers of the flame before him.
It was then that something black flashed through his eyes. He blinked to confirm if he was only seeing things. Half-expecting that it was just his imagination, he just shrugged it off.
Vaati lifted his head to see the hero. The hero quickly passed by him and dashed inside the tent, where he supposedly saw that 'something black' that just passed by.
