Remember the children who were abused
The whole affair makes me so confused
How could it have gone on so long
Why were they taken somewhere they didn't belong?
These children were hurt for something so stupid
They were punished and killed for things they never did
Who would be so utterly cruel, to cause such pain and misery
Why did it take so long for others to see?
Many years and many more deaths
So many young children lost their breaths
Why snuff out a candle if it can still burn
Why snuff out their lives, didn't you learn?
These children were innocent, they had no idea
They were mistreated and filled with fear
Why would anyone want to cause such a thing
It really is quite madening.
The ChanceHe tore me downThe Chance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He made sure I was never found
He inflicted those scars
He locked me in those bars
He hid me from you
I hid the pain he insued
He screamed at me
I made sure I did not breathe
I carried on like life was fine
He made sure that I was in line
I did every thing that popped into his head
He made sure I was lead
His abuse is becoming more than I can bear
Talk against him- I wouldn't dare
Then a chance- it now called
I would run away I would never fall
I ran away from this place
I made it like a race
It did not matter the cost
As long as I was lost

Through the tears, through the agony
Because one thing is real
And I am no longer letting YOU take it away from me

Stop being there
It is not like you really cared
You said I will be alone again
So let me be that
It has never stopped you before right
You used me the whole time
Like I was nothing
Why are you suddenly acting
Like you give two cents
about me now
"I did care for you."
Cut the crap
I no longer want to hear it.
Just stop, just stop please.

This nightmare that we make.
When you think you have got away,
You only think you rule the day.
But all you know is that there is fear,
Trapped forever in this place of fear.
Can you hear the screams?
No one can seem to escape,
This nightmare that we make.
Can you learn to escape,
It's much like the endless landscapes.
You can never seem to escape.

Sing unto me,
Say how you know me and care for me.
Say that you know how things could have been,
And the way things would be,
Here I am to be alone,
Trying my hardest to atone.
Do not weep over this day,
For I did not fall away.
I will lift my head knowing my sins,
Battling this fight I must always win!

Tell me now that I'm safe,
Even if this life is fake.
Sing to me and tell me now,
How far this life has come,
That I can say for now,
"I know that I am alive and well."
The voice tells me truth,
When you say how false it is,
Cause I can see how true it is,
That you are not who you are.
The truth is before me,
I know that it will set me free.

"I'm turning you in"
It took a moment for his words to register, for the shock to sink into your heart and slowly turn it acid with betrayal. You stared at him for a few moments, your eyes wide and shocked. You lips parted in an attempt to speak, to form any sort of words to reply, but your throat closed and the speech you had tried to voice vanished.
Rivaille gazed evenly back at you, his face expressionless. His hands were clenched at his sides, his mouth drawn in a taut line.
At last your voice returned to you, but it wavered uncertainly, choked with the sound of hurt.
"You're lying." You whispered.
Rivaille held your gaze for a moment, just a few seconds that seemed to bleed into eternity. His eyes met yours, cold and unfeeling.
It was then that you knew he was telling the truth.
"You're lying!" you said, louder this time,as if to deceive yourself into beleive that he truly wasn't telling you the truth.

Touching your feelings with my mind all the while
Being gentle and pure to the ones that i love
Treating the broken and fragile with sensual silk gloves
A mind full of horror from all of the bad
Stories you hear so tragic so sad
Stories full of demons and anger and rage
Of innocent victims in their own life made cage
But the other side of me no one See's so much
So sexy and sensual makes your hands want to touch
Touch the place that's forbidden for women like me
Women controlled by religion; not meant to be free
Desire from my spirit lies out on a page
Through depression, to lust lovers at a young early age
If I could be me I would be this girl
In a dark sexy fairy tale my mind would unfurl
To be what I want and feel such passion
To have my mind set free, never going out of fashion
To live like a dark angel, sharing feelings within
Being free to be me without feeling the sin.

You woke the the feeling of clean sheets and sunlight streaming through the window. Your eyes fluttered open hesitantly, unwilling to leave the comfort of the bed, but they suddenly flew open when you recalled the strange events of last night.
You bolted to a sitting position, your hair flying messily into your face. The cold of the room outside the sheets was shocking, and your hands instantly flew to your arms to conserve what body warmth you had.
Your eyes scanned the room cautiously; For what , you were unsure. Your vision floated towards the window, where soft morning rays penetrated through the glass.
You allowed yourself to relax for a moment, knowing there wasn't any imminent danger towards you. A hand raised itself to rub sleepily at your eyes. A yawn stretched your jaw. You blinked sleepily, glancing around the room.
It was a simple room, a small bed for one person, a wardrobe, and wash stand. You swung your legs over the be

Another comment about Allen’s attitude, oh she hated it. Ever since the town had started to grow, so did the number of people visiting the restaurant. Every passing day the restaurant was becoming less and less of a quiet place to relax and eat lunch. For Rachel Harper, she used the free time she had to read.
“I know, right?” The group of girls giggled. “For a guy who is really good looking he has the kindness of a wolf.”
Their obnoxious giggles made it hard for her to read. She would end up having to read the entire page over again to reprocess what she had just read.
“I bet he is an abusive boyfriend!” They busted out into another fit of laughter even more loud than the last. One of the girls even snorted. Rachel slammed the book she had been trying to read onto the table causing a break in their annoying laugh. Anger was boiling within her as she walked over to the table that the girls had resided. Sh

My senses tell me that they are there,
a life I had to leave behind.
Dancing gently in the falling snow,
I smile watching my children go,
Playing to and fro with the falling snow.
My eyes water in happiness,
But I know they are not really there,
Not caught in this war of the land.
I hear the laughter and whispering,
I know that my love one is thinking of me.
I close my eyes and listen,
I know that my love is there.
I am a solider in this war,
I will serve till it over,
When I can return to my lover,
And say that it's over.

This is an issue very close to my heart, so I'll be putting it into rhyme:
Hang on a moment, STOP!
And think in the frame,
You pickin' up that glass,
With a hint of disdain.
Knocking back the shots,
One, two, nine, twenty!
You're pukin' in the alley,
And the scent is heavy!
Every moment that you pass off as some fun,
It's like you're playing tag at the point of a gun!
I'm sick and tired,
Watching you sink into despair.
Your life is in the gutter,
But you're already there!
Now how do you escape this,
What is the truth?
You're blinded by the lies,
That you think is the proof!
You lookin' down into the glass...
At a demon and it may be your last!
You better start waking,
To the smell of your breath,
Or the alcohol WILL,
Be the reason for death...

You always loved them and cared for them deeply
They were the joy of your life and you held them close.
Until one day, sadly, they were taken from you
and your heart was torn by the pain and grief...
But remember always, that they will watch over you
though you might not feel them presently
You can hear their whispers when the wind is blowing
and you can feel their warmth on the lonely nights
They will always remain in your memories
For that is where you keep a part of them
A loving part that will never fade
Therefore, do not think of them as being 'gone'
Instead take heart in the fact that they are waiting
So that one day, you might both embrace each other once more...

You have no right,
If you're that much full of yourself.
Then I will put up the fight.
You can judge me all you like,
That won't make me change,
I am the master of my fate,
Like a bird escaping it's cage.
I am more than you can ever be,
And thats a fact.
But if you have so much time to judge,
Obviously it's knowledge that you lack.
Your ignorance shows through,
And that's not good,
Don't laugh at me just because I come from the hood.
I may be born less fortunate than you,
And that may be a fact,
But when I get older,
You'll see where I'll be at.

Leave me hanging loose.

The Simple DelightsThe Simple Delights:The Simple Delights2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world is a place of simple pleasures
of the simple delights that we fail to see
Like a rose whose thorns will prick unwary
we focus on the negatives that be
But if we chose to hold the rose
Gentle and with grace
Its thorns would simply press our skin
Not pain or poison laced
If we could learn the simple lessons
of looking at all the good things in life
Then food would be the only object
to meet the edge of my knife
I see so many different ways
to enjoy the life that I have today
I could go to the store and buy a snack
A treat for me I say
Perhaps I'll choose to walk the distance
or maybe I'll take the bus this morn
But none can take the simple pleasure
of the rising sun at dawn
The simple things are what I wish to share
For like my heart, they are always true
and if you were here, sitting beside me
then I'd share this sunrise with you

A man once told me that blue eyes were best
So I decided I would put these words to a test.
I ran across the globe and found a blue eyed fish
It tasted very tasty when served as a dish
I then went to Ireland to find a blue eyed gnome
Instead I got a Lephrechaun whose name was 'Jerome'
I used him as bait to catch some blue eyed mice
I suppose he now regrets that he lost at dice...
I then used the mice to catch a blue eyed cat
I then used the cat to catch a blue eyed dog
I then used the dog to catch a blue eyed witch
I think I left that one down in a ditch...
In any case...
I returned back home to my quaint boulevard
Where some band named 'Greenday' was out in the yard
I asked the singer what he thought of eyes
But all he muttered was 'cakes are lies...'
Feeling quite unsure about the blue eyed theory
I decided to talk to my friend named Mary
She had a cute face and her eyes were green
So I told her those were the best I'd seen
She invited me home for Coff

Everything about Wally West's current situation was really ironic.
Everyone else thought girls were the only thing on his mind these days. They as in the people that knew him all had every right to think so, after witnessing nearly every fancy pick-up line he threw at M'gann.
But Wally himself knew that just wasn't the case. In fact, this odd change in him occurred a while before the team had formed, but it was only afterwards that he realized there was so much more hiding deep within his subconscious.
He figured was just his luck to have two relatively attractive girls working with him nearly every day, back in the team's younger days. But M'gann was always off trying to impress Superboy, and Artemis found him too annoying to want to engage in any kind of conversation with him. Overall, they both ended up being complete turnoffs, and the team thing didn't turn out as awesome as he expected.
What put him down even more was the fact that he had no one else to run to out

Nezumi walks up the last hill and stands facing No.6 with his foot over a jutting piece of rock, one he had overlooked the city on top of many times before, his backpack hanging loosely at his back and his hands in his jacket pockets. The wind blows his hair to his face. It isn't really cold nor is it warm. The sun has risen a few hours ago over the mountains behind the city and No.6 without the wall glows under the golden rays like a snow globe only one made with sunshine.
