Clear WristA clear wrist, barren of scars,Clear Wrist9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
as opposed to skin sauntered in marks,
tells a trickier story than it's soiled and raw,
uncaring, unkempt counter part.
Bravery, I think it holds,
the strength to bare unimaginable loads
of pain and suffering through endless times,
and withstanding the agony of sleepless nights.
Some think it is fear, the reluctance to cut,
but I believe it opposite, it show courage and guts.
To bear your pain without a nick on your wrist,
is like a solider braving his terrain while being torn limb from limb.
Agonizing as it is, to hide your pain,
you do it so well, and no attention you'll gain.
At the end of the day, it's not cry for attention,
rather a cry for the victory that's silently mentioned.
Your scars are those not self inflicted,
and despite the gnawing intention,
to harm yourself and ease your pain,
the scars you earn are rightfully gained.
In a room of those who have jumped the gun,
and left traces of blood deep in their arms,
do not be tempted to do the sam
If a Feminist Were HonestWhat if a feminist were forced to say what’s really on her mind, like Jim Carrey’s character in Liar Liar? This is how a poem by such a feminist might read.If a Feminist Were Honest1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I need feminism because…
Women need more,
Scholarships for college,
New business grants,
Even though they already outnumber men,
In college and entrepreneurship.
We need more female CEO’s and political leaders,
But not more women in…
Forestry, sewage, or mining,
Truck driving, or taxi driving,
Or garbage collection,
Or more men on magazine covers,
Or higher-paid male models,
Or fewer men dying on the job,
Or fewer men dying in wars,
Or fewer homeless men,
Or fewer male suicides,
Or fewer men in prison.
You see, men losing is sexual dimorphism,
While women losing is sexism.
Should be made EQUAL to
The most successful men
Whether they earn it or not.
That’s gender equality!

It was now near dinner time, and I sat myself down, with a cup of tea, next to Hanji who was still as energetic as before.
She turned her head towards me and smiled, laying an elbow down on the table followed by leaning the side of her cheek in the palm of her hands.
"What?" I mumbled under my breath annoyed at her actions, I noticed her smile wasn't one of happiness or joy, but of mischeviouse and trouble and I cocked an eye brow, waiting for her answer.
"Oh nothing...just been hearing rumors...that's all..." The women sang in a truanting voice.
My head perked up just a little bit but I rolled my eyes somewhat before reaching down at the cup in front of me and bringing it up to my lips.
"You know I could give a rats ass about rumors...." I huffed out before taking a sip of the warm tea.
"Oh, but it's not just any rumor~ it's about you and (y/n)" she retorted while a small gleam appeared in her eyes.

With my elbows propped up atop the windowsill, my hands cup my face as I stare out into the world that is slowly being devoured. Light fading, the sky stained with dark blue ink, colour dissolving into darkness. Only the playful melody of the blackbird resounds across the night, giving us feeble and desperate humans hope that spring would soon arrive once more. Even in the time it takes for the smile to pull my lips at the sound of the hidden bird, I feel the world become darker and darker, the bird's calls becoming less and less frequent, until the world now lies silent. The warm glow from the lamp in the corner begins to shine bright in its reflection on the glass in front of me, making the fading universe outside even less visible. It is nice to feel the silence, that emptiness that feels so whole, that fullness that makes me feel so empty.
It’s odd being in the house alone at night. During the day, there is always some sort of amusing kerfuff

Due to expectations and isolations.
Adaptations, illustrations, separations.
It's not how it used to be.
I wonder will it last?
One words replies,
Now it's lies, cries, guys and skinny thighs.
Oh I despise, but I'll advise,
Do not trust a soul.
Blasting music in our ears,
Hiding from the sneers and leers,
They're picking on the queers.
Aren't they our peers?
Alone, and other feelings I've never known.
Upgrade your phone.
Dye your hair a darker tone.
Wear cologne and dig the drone.
Welcome to the cool zone.
Break and clatter.
"I'm fine." or "it doesn't matter."
Am I flatter or fatter?
Definitely the latter.
Watch my heart shatter,
And the pieces scatter.
Cause we're just kids, who grew up too fast.
Due to expirations and deprivations.
Situations, innovations, realizations.
It's not like it used to be.
Now we're an outcast.

Fighter of evil,

Fire of red,

Technologically advanced and often looked to.
Color of orange,
Bubbly and bright.
The goof of the team,
Always filled with delight.
Hidden heroes dwell.

They are nothing,
With one gone.
Though all together,
They can pull on.
The mutant heroes--
The pillars of a tower--
Hold up the town.
With their Turtle Power.

She had noticed it since this morning. When she served him breakfast, he didnt smile but thanked her and remained silent while they ate. Later, as he got ready to go to the meeting, he had an odd air about him. She watched him as he had slipped his jacket on and you could see a look in his icy, cerulean eyes. The blue seemed a deeper shade and the ice in them was more than just frosty or cold. Even when she kissed him good bye and wished him luck as he left, she didnt see the look disappear. When she thought about it, he seemed a lot like this yesterday too.

We become it's biggest addict.
It has no faith.
It has no love.
It comes too late into the age,
And chokes all who feel it hang,
To evict us from our home.
Without a fault.
Without a soul.
It's nothing we should know.
Guilty of sitting alone,
Unworthy of what others deserve.
No need for fears,
No need to pretend.
Only a desire to disappear.
Don't reach for the brightest hand,
Just crawl away.
This idea of none,
To some a magicians hoax.
Without a friend for fun,

To those who never know.
It forever persists,
It will never leave.
While we can't be saved,
And with nothing to be,
At our core we're not gone.

Through the woods
I came to a pond
In the moonlight
To take a seat
So I did
And I looked in
And it showed me
A myriad of mysterious messages
Like the face of the cancer
That ate my mind
And the ice that froze my heart
And the bitter sting
Of many a loss
All the things that tear me apart
And I realized looking there
That no matter how hard I tried
To push these things aside
They were always there
They were a part of me
But then the image changed
I saw a heart made whole
A life renewed
And an aged face
A long time from now
And in that moment I knew
These parts of me

there's a distance erased with the greatest of ease.
-Vienna Teng, Eric's Song
In a world of puzzle pieces
dumped out of the box and scattered on the floor,
colour and pattern align for a brief instant
and two pieces snap together.
One edge fits.
Their place on the box-cover still unknown
but wherever it is, it is together.
A white-striped fish
teases through the hair of a mermaid with her head buried in the sand.
The blades she keeps in that upwards cascade
don't touch him.
The poison she uses when she's scared-
as dearly known to him as his own skin.
He will dwell in her hair forever if she will have him
combing out the tangles she can't reach.
He feels safe there, buried in her curls
and her fronds.
The floor is littered with discarded
chests, brightly painted but still opaque.
The keys long-gone.
Inside each an angel-devil pounds on the lid of its painted prison-
fortress became coffin.

Spock and his two Vulcan guards walk down the corridor of the I.S.S. Enterprise.
Terran redshirts and ensigns look at Spock with a mixture of fear and respect.
It was more logical to assume fear, since if he showed even a second of weakness, he would lose his life.
The trio stops short of the entrance to Sick Bay.
His target: Doctor Leonard Mccoy, Chief Medical Officer of the I.S.S. Enterprise, accused of treason against his Captain.
"Stay." Spock utters as his two Vulcan Guards turn their backs to the door, standing vigilant guard over the entrance.
This was one assignment Spock was hesitant to accept.
For he had his eyes on the Doctor for quite some time.
Now, Mccoy was NOT an admirable man.
He had killed the original Medical Officer, M'Benga, to receive this job.
He has raped a countless number of his female patients before, during, and after operations.
He has also tried to assassinate Kirk on two occasions, both of those attempts quelled by Spock.
