Don't BelieveDon’t BelieveDon't Believe1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You tell me he’s in Heaven and I’ll see him again someday,
But what if I don’t believe in God? What if I never pray?
Is he drifting in the wind, because I can’t believe where he could be?
Is he floating alone amongst the trees because I can’t believe?
I choose to think he’s in a better place, a place of joy and light,
Where people go who’ve run the race and fought the fight.
I can’t bring myself to believe in a God who hands out disease,
Or takes children too soon and leaves mothers bereaved.
I choose to think that he is happy, whole, laughing, smiling, strong,
And because I choose these thoughts I can daily struggle on.
Until the day I join him, because wherever he may be,
Even if I don’t believe, he’ll always welcome me.

Her hands, long, pale, and slender, never shook.
Those hands, that held the knitting,
held the knife,
those hands, that were strong forever,
those hands, that held mine tightly,
those hands, that clenched as we ran from the flames,
those hands shook
as my life
faded to black.

Shoot me, Kill me, Take my Soul.
For I have no use of it. I'm just stuck here, in this Undenying Hell they call life.
Around and Around these feelings go.
Why lead me to suffer so much? Just end it all, I'll feel no pain, For I am already numb. But thinking of you, brought my thoughts straight.
So please, Love me, Hold me, I need that feeling.
As I lay dying. Explain that you love me more than anything.
I think my feelings are going to come back again...... just dont leave me be.
I Love The Way You Love MeI Love The Way You Love Me10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I love the way I can talk to you
And say what's on my mind
I never have to look away
Or keep a thing inside
Tears fill my eyes when you're not around
Or when you just don't care
But I know in my heart you will do what's right
For me, you will always dare
Material things will never matter
As long as I have you
You make every day that passes
So much easier to get through
My worries disappear when you're around
No thoughts of pain or doubt
I feel your love when you hold me close
And kiss me if I pout
I don't care what they are talking about
All I care for is you
I'll jump off a building to show you my love
If that's what I have to do
I love you for everything that you are
Not what you promise to be
I know you can't see why or how
You're the most important thing to me

Their old home was the same as when they had last left it. It was a pile of rubble on the ground where seedlings of trees were growing. The sun was coming down, and with it went the warmth of the day. What replaced the warmth was a sudden cold wind, threatening to make Ed keel over with pain vibrating from what was left of his right arm.
The aching that invaded his body warned him that a storm was coming soon. Judging by the amount of pain, it would be a pretty bad one. Ed looked up and saw the orange sky being overcome by clouds of grey. As he looked up, another gust of wind came upon his face, it felt like tiny needles trying to make their home on his cheek, desperately trying to get away from the coldness that they themselves caused.
Seeing this new development in the sky, Ed and Al hastily searched around their old home for the promised letter; Hawkeye had stayed behind at the train station, wanting to give them some space, considering where the brothers were heading. They looked a

Must Love Cats
Fur of gold to pet and rub,
Perfect cat for me to love,
Razor claws and pointed teeth,
All the better made to keep,
A quick brush along silky fur,
Rewarded with a rumbling purr,
Given a glancing nuzzled kiss,
He is mine and I am his.
