Helping the WeakI stand here
cheerful as ever
I left my old life
to start anew
I am still the same
I still help the weak
who are in need
I still care about my friends
I still would rather be loved
I may be in a new place
yet I still am the same
when people are dying
I keep them living
I wish there was more
yet I still stand here
cheerful as ever
Encampmenton day one we cameEncampment8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we were herded and we learned many things
things of screams
and things of law
then the torture
on day two
tired and weary
awakened by horn
forced out of bed
crying for sleep
slowly dying inside
we spent hour after hour
in the blazing sun
hoping soon we will be done
on day three
still we worked
but I died
I broke to tears
the pain I felt never ceasing
calling on who I love
to bring me out
for to no avail
so again I wept
the days becoming years
never knowing when
lost forever in time
on day four
I finally saw the light
if not only a flicker
yet a light just the same
In the events of the day
I came to terms
with many things
yet I was still in the dark
on the fifth day
I was in joy
I had friends
brothers in arms
we fought our battles
together never dying
we learned together
more than any alone could
we played together
winning every game
on the sixth day
we did many challenges
then feasting tog

"Class, we have a new student today." Said our teacher. This is the story of Jessica McCormick, and how she slithered herself into my heart.
It was on that day that Jess entered the classroom. She had rather gaudy sunglasses and had very poor taste in fashion. It was sad, people would make fun of her every day, and she never said a thing. Andrew was the biggest dick in the class. He was relentless. Everyday Jess would enter the class, and everyday Andrew would call her an unattractive bitch. It hurt me. I wanted to kick his ass, or maybe punch him in the face, shutting him up once and for all. Unfortunately, Andrew picked on me too, and his imposing frame kept me from doing a thing.
One day, I was on my way home when I saw a bunch of student crowding around something. Great, another fight. But as I walked past I saw that Jess was being confronted by Andrew and his troupe. I didn't think. As I watched, something came over me. I pushed Andrew over, "Fuck off you asshole, leave
Missing YouOnce I was lost,Missing You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And you saved me.
From the darkest place
So deep within this world
Where my heart is breaking
I look to those who are lost,
And just like me
They refuse to let me near,
Anything that can help
Becomes infected and incurable.
Ghost of a shell of a chance
When my other half is missing
I miss you, darling.
When will you come home?
Love Songs to the MoonHe's lonely, just another dreamer-boy with his head in the clouds.Love Songs to the Moon3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For a boy who would never be loved, he had so much love in him.
She runs her tongue along her teeth. Are you afraid of dragons? she asks.
I imagine her with scales and wings, breathing fire. I tell her no, I'm a knight in shining armour.
Oh, she says with mock seriousness, you're fearless then.
I'm afraid, I say softly, I'm afraid of falling.
She leans in close. I feel her breath on my lips as she whispers, What about falling in love?
I forget how to breathe. The world starts to spin and I close my eyes.
Then she kisses me full on the mouth and my spine turns to feathers. I feel hollow, weak, like I just might blow away in the wind with this fairytale reaching across my tongue. I feel her lips against mine; my heart starts to beat too fast and I feel a tingling sensation across my chest. I think my lungs are going to catch fire.

Hall of MirrorsThrough the dark and through the tearsHall of Mirrors9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I met you in the Hall of Mirrors
I didn't know you at all before
And now I seem to all the more
Your past, your present and your future
A story of time to hold and treasure
Of hopes and dreams lost and gained
Of fears and scars all sustained
A life that's neither good nor bad
A life of confusion that drives you mad
And somewhere along the journeys way
I notice our likeness day to day
And without thinking who is who
I realize; you are me and I am you
Complete with all my faults and fears
I found myself in the Hall of Mirrors
The Warrior's RoseDown shadowy paths the warrior tread, not certain of his way,The Warrior's Rose8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When he came unto bushes of rose, surrounding a sylvan glade.
And from the branch he stole the gift, deepest red in shade,
And knew this rose he would bestow unto his elven maid.
A rose for his forbidden elven maid.
Even as he thought of her from the mist she did appear.
She ran to him and held him fast, shedding silver tears.
And though their love was forbidden, this human and this elf,
As the moonlight broke to day, they thought of nothing else.
And although his heart ached, he knew he must away.
It would mean death to them both to be caught in light of day.
And the warrior must battle on to make his meager pay.
As he left sight of her, she clutched the rose he gave.
She clutched the rose, deepest red in shade.
The battle was waged at dawn, and the warrior joined the fray.
But fate had not destined him to make it through that day.
And to that selfsame glade the dying warrior made his way,
And as he died he saw her there, h

Being so far away
Can't wait for the day
That I see you again
Time stands still
Waiting for you
If only you knew
How your smile makes me feel
I miss you
Hearing your laughter
I wish time went by faster
So I could see you again
A Helping HandPeople need a helping handA Helping Hand8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To guide them to something
That can make a life better
Improving someone's state of mind
Just being there for someone else
Making miracles happen
That's what life should be
With people who care
With someone to share
Doing good where it's needed
Changing someone's life
So their fate is better
Lending a helping hand
So they can stand
Changing the world
One step at a time
Where one's are needed
Being there for someone else
Thinking of them not just yourself
Lending a helping hand
So they can stand…

yet the one who discovers a world
a world of others like themselves
