Lost in my past,
and I cant get
Trapped but content
in this little window
where none pass....
How can I not take
the comments to heart
when you are
Lost in what I called the past
Lost in shattered time
Lost in what I call time
Lost and alone
In a small temple,
flowers lay around me
and tears stain the concrete
as I think of your shining eyes
I reach out,but the link is broken
and broken it will stay
you told me,and so did she
It will remain this way.
How can I break the door
to my future,
when the whereabouts are unknown
the rain of the past will pin me down
in a rushing,torrential downpour.
The feathers from your wings
drift slowly to the ground
as you leave my world behind but remain connected
somehow,it will work,
we have always been in sync
but far apart
nevertheless you and her.
I wish a gentle flight.
spread your wings
unto the world

America Home For Equal Rights Unless You Are GayWe're all familiar with our constitutional rights as American citizens, even if we don't have the amendments memorized by heart, we still know when we're justified in saying "that's unconstitutional!" Furthermore, we're familiar with the phrase "separation between church and state." While many people believe this is the literal amendment, it was in fact taken out of a letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists back in 1802 (Separation Part 1). To be entirely factual, our amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" (U.S Constitution). To put this in simple form, our government cannot interfere with the practice of religion, or claim one sole religion as the one of our state, or country.

Where is she hiding, and why did she go?
Daddy, don't lie to me, please, pretty please
It's like I can hear her voice within the breeze.
Daddy, don't lie to me, where did she run?
Daddy, I know all the things you have done.
Daddy, don't lie to me, I've seen her scars
Hidden from me like the faraway stars.
Daddy, don't tell me, I don't wanna hear
I'm hoping these thoughts are just worries, just fears.
Daddy, don't tell me, I can't stand the facts
I just wanna think this is some silly act.
Daddy, I love you, you know this is true
But honestly, why do you do what you do?
Daddy, I saw you when you pushed her down
She screamed and she cried, and you made not a sound.
Daddy, I saw you when you stabbed her back
She fell to the floor and again, you attacked.
Daddy, I saw when you stole her goodbyes
And Daddy, I saw when you silenced her cries.
Daddy, don't lie to me, I know the truth...
You hurt her, you killed her, you've darkened my youth.
Daddy, don't hu
Save YourselfDear mommy…Save Yourself2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I could have saved you.
I know you promised me you’d save yourself,
But I should have known you were lying.
I could have protected you.
I know you said you were fine,
But I should have been able to see all the tears behind your eyes…
The lies, I should have seen straight through them,
I should have known better than to believe you,
I should have known better.
I should have known.
I should have saved you...
I'm sorry Mommy.
I shouldn't have let you save yourself.

with that being said
Are you happy with the last words you said to me?
Or the time between talks
the distance in our walks
How would you feel if you never got to see me again?
Death can happen to anyone
It can happen at anytime
Do you comprehend what i'm trying to get you to see?
You can make excuses if you want
put me lower on your priorities
You can even ignore me when im alone and in need of a friend
But when its my time
And I've walked too far
I hope your conscience will one day find peace
Because you'll feel the guilt
of abandoning a friend
And watched from afar as I crawled slowly to my end

- in a crust of broken leaves.
And when she hit the ochre bottom,
- by little, winged thieves,
her breaths were stolen away.
And she fell in a blanket of foam
- in waves of roaring blue.
And she reached her final home,
- where singing winds blew
smelling of freesia.
And they said she sank in clouds of white,
Like a bird diving too deep for prey,
And they said that in the swirls of the night,
They could hear her voice say:
A child plays in the yard.

Valentine's DayValentine's Day4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On this day is love so grand?
How does this change from before?
Now it seems like a simple brand,
but love is love and not a law.
It comes and goes like little black swallows,
you can choose with the heart and mind;
than just the face in which you might follow
a path that's blind and entwined.
Oh the lost and alone do not weep,
the stars can only start to spring and sprout
as the coils of clockwork are truly deep
it can be hard to find and come about.
Time is time do not rush,
one day I am sure you will find that crush.

shiny in my palm,
the ticket to my peace,
to my eternal calm.
They're so perfectly round,
and soon they'll be in me.
The closest to perfect
that I'll ever be.
They go down so smooth.
Five, ten, fifteen and twenty.
Soon I'll be gone.
Twenty-five and Thirty.
That should be enough,
but I'll play it safe.
Thirty-five and forty.
Now I have no more to take.
The bottle is empty,
as empty as I feel.
None of this is happening,
too good to be real.
But soon I start to drift
into a dark unknown fog.
Somewhere quite distantly.
I hear a muffled sob.
But I blow it off as fake.
Nobody could possibly care.
I doubt anyone's noticed
that I'm no longer there.
But then I hear my name,
just a distant call.
I feel myself lift higher.
No! I want to fall!
I ignore the voice in earnest,
but it's calling me up, up, up.
Please let me be.
That life was too tough.
I like this fog,
this numbing haze,
free from the ridicule,
from the judging gaze.
But inevitably I come up,
eyes open so slight.
Graduation~Graduation~Graduation7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Here we are together
We've been through it all
The fights, the break-ups,
The drama that was everywhere
And through it all we made it
Standing here today
I don't know what to say or do
Tears are running down my face
I'm not sure what for
Is it because we are finally here
Or is it because we are saying good-bye
I wish so much that I could say
"I'll see you in the fall!
Have a good summer!"
But then I might be lying
Some I might never see again
Graduation is finally here
Seems like yesterday
We were freshman so unsure
God how could the years go by so fast?
We promise to keep in touch
But twenty-years from now
Will we really be friends,
Or will we just be memories
One things for sure though
We'll always have the memories
That we managed to make
The good ones, the bad ones,
And the straight out ugly ones.
I know the good ones will
Out number all the rest
Good luck with your life
And now let us go
Our different ways
And always remember
The fights, the break-up
Your Winter SongIf you can hear meYour Winter Song3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Because I have a feeling you're there
I want you to hear my winter song
So you will know I care
So here it goes,
I have nothing to lose
So I will sing my winter song
And I will sing it to you.
I know its Jack Frost
Who paints my windowpanes
And I know you are there
When I’m playing winter games.
I know that you bring the snow
That makes all of us smile
And I know that you linger
And watch us a while.
I know that you make
The icicles on each tree
Your beautiful work
Isn't over looked by me.
So if you are listening,
I want you to know
That I wanted to thank you
For the beautiful snow.
I know that others
May not be as faithful as me
But you should never feel doubtful
Because I will always believe.
So please never feel alone, dear Jack
Because you are my guardian true
And I want you to know
I will always believe in you

From the time that she could walk and talk
she could never quite get it right.
Her mommy would call her spiteful names
and then scream "Get out of my sight!"
Nothing she did was ever enough
no matter how hard she would try.
The pictures that she would draw for mom
never got more than the usual sigh.
But when she would go to grandpa's house
greyish skies would turn sunny blue.
In grandpa's eyes she could do no wrong;
his love for her was kind and true.
Her grandma had been ill for some time
making it hard for grandpa to cope.
But when she came with those dark brown eyes
her visits would fill them with hope.
By the time that she was twelve years old
her dear grandma had passed away.
Her mother had found a new lover;
they left her and went their own way.
Alone and afraid and feeling low;
suddenly, a knock at the door!
Grandpa was there to rescue his girl...
and he promised to be there for her evermore!
The reasonThe reason4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sunlight is shining on the top of my head,
should I stay or leave the warmth of my bed?
Drinking beer while birds sing in the rain,
what the hell lets drown the pain.
Eat pills or cut my throat with a sharpened knife,
does it really matter when all I want is to end my life?
Even though I stumble through the darkness at night,
I keep my head up high and my eyes straight at the light.
When I see your face my heart starts to beat,
but I have to stay cool in case I overheat.
All the joy and love that you share and give,
I've finally found a reason to live.
this is half-hearted living.i know i'm going to have to say goodbye soon. and i can't stand it. i won't even think of it outside the confines of this sentence and the sinking feeling I get anytime i'm driving too fast just to get away from this place. these four walls have left me feeling more alone than i ever expected. mostly because this house feels empty. even when everyone is here and even when i can't think because of all the yelling pulsating down the hallways, it's unspeakably hollow. i know it's because this place isn't home anymore. since home is a person and i lost that. i'm not where i'm supposed to be. i'm not with who i'm supposed to be. and i'm not who i'm supposed to be.this is half-hearted living.5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The kind of darkness said to have made
shadow monsters of seen-too-much eyes
& the kind of war lands made of
desecrated, dandelion wrists.
I am the wind, the morphine pump
& I’ve carved my bones into stars.
I wear them around my neck
like outward sun marrow
warming my carotid pulse.
These little glow-in-the-dark blankets
aren’t enough to stifle the sounds;
but my anatomy never seemed to fit
together the right way anyway.
That Wall is Coming DownFlipping through the papers on his desk one more time, William made sure that every section on every form was filled out in a satisfactory manner. He frowned at the chicken scratch that was Eric's handwriting. It had taken him fifteen minutes alone to decipher what the Shinigami had written. He just sighed and skipped over re-reading the looping scrawl that was Grell's, peered a little closer at Alan's-he had a tendency to put the letter 'e' where it didn't belong- and stopped. There was a report missing. The single report that he rarely ever had trouble reading. Ronald would always put little notes everywhere in his report. It could get a tad distracting, trying to decipher all the notes and figure out how they related to the entire report, which was always written in careful, strained handwriting. Comparing it to the notes, William knew that writing neatly was not what Ronald was used to. However, no matter how many times he flipped through his stack of reports, he couldn't find thatThat Wall is Coming Down5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

But on the outside I'm trying
To pretend that I'm alright
As I'm battling this fight
I dress in long sleeves and jeans
I hide my scars so they can't be seen
No one would suspect
That inside I'm so wrecked
That I feel so empty
'Cause no one's by my side
'Cause I've been a jerk and lied
Just trying to protect myself and hide
So many nights I've cried myself to sleep
Hurting myself wishing the cuts were more deep
How I'm aching inside and out
That I'm filled with so much doubt
That I've hated myself for all these years
That behind the smile I hold back the tears
That in the end I know I've become so weak
That if I told you the truth, you'd think I'm a freak
That I feel like everything's all my fault
That I wish my heart would come to a halt
That I was dead a long time ago
That I'm ready to be sent down below
