Do I need a stained-glass window?
Do I need a choir of heavenly voices?
Do I need an altar and pew?
Oh Lord what do I need to worship you?
Do I need a message of salvation?
Do I need a teaching of forgiveness?
Do I need a word of encouragement?
What do I need to worship you oh Lord?
Do I need to say the Lords Prayer?
Do I need to fast and rip my clothes?
Do I need to fill the collection plate?
Oh Lord do I need any of these things to worship you?
Or will my dark room be enough?
Will the words I read from Your book be plenty?
Are my humble tears sufficient?
All I need to worship You,
Is the breath you give me.
All I need to worship You,
Is to trust in you.
All I need to worship You,
Is to live for you.
All I need to worship You,
Lord, is You,
All I need, is You.

with a bucket on my head,
I wheel barrowed down ten story stairs last week --
trying to prove that I am not as alone as I feel.
'I was wrong', the sun slobs
behind curtains, wanting me to play
all these laughing games, while meteoroids orbit
the wire in my throat,
and I gathered up socks and shirts in plastic bags
week by week. This is a slow process
of climbing over your heart-hedge,
I am not there yet. I saw you staring
at the food particles on clean sheets.
I tried to explain -- I have problems under my tongue
but they sat under my fingernails instead,
the smell turned vile.
I am here still, you know,
in plastic cups that do not keep me safe
but I make-believe they do.
This is a climate change only half welcome,
the air conditioning angers the ten man band
hacked into my skull.
I've lost two pounds in ten minutes
trying to stop their drums,
these dancing digits and these shrinking arms --
they throw tantrums
and I wept a thousand chemicals to help you see

"The cow is a successful animal. Also he is quadrupud, and because he is female, he give milk,but will do so when he is got child.He is same like God,sacred to Hindus and useful to man.But he has got four legs together. Two are forward and two are afterwards.
His motion is slow only because he is of asitudinious species. Also his other motion is much useful to trees, plants as well as making flat cakes in hand and drying in the sun. Cow is the only animal that extricates his feeding after eating.
His only attacking and defending organ is the horn, specially so when he is got child. This is done by knowing his head whereby he causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and instantly proceed with great velocity forwards."

Chapter 4: Wish Fulfillment
I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.
You dont remember me, do you?
I was confused. I liked dragons a lot, but never did I imagine seeing one up close, and this one was a little too real for comfor

Flare awoke the next morning on his living room floor to hear voices talking over him. They werent his parents, but someone elses, and there were a lot of them. He cautiously opened one eye a crack, and instantly shut it. He was completely surrounded by animals, and not just his house pets, but wild ones as well. Flare wondered why his dogs hadnt protected him whats more the voices seemed to be coming from the animals. Josie, the most faithful of his dogs, was lying on the floor beside him. A stag was talking to her, and apparently the conversation was about him.

He was lifted clear off the ground by a comet of pure light. If thats not a sign, then I dont know what is. Wait, shh. Listen, his breathings changed. I think hes awake.

Chapter 2: Destined for Greatness
Fare was not your average 14 year old boy. No matter what he did, no one would accept him for who he was. Sure, you could blame it on the fact that he was a four-eyed brace-face looser who did nothing but watch T.V., surf the web, and play video games. But the real problem lied deeper than that. The real problem was his personality. He was what most people would call "immature". Although he was 14 and in fact was mature, he had a deep, burning, passionate obsession, Dragons. Of course everyone teased him about it, but he didn't mind. He was more of a loner himself and liked his space. If he could he would much rather hang out with his pets and talk to them instead. He always felt so awkward in large groups of people, but seeemed to feel right at home with animals.

Stanęła w progu jego drzwi. Nie zrobiła jednak kroku, nie weszła do środka.
Nie dla tego, że cuchnęło papierosami.
To była jego przestrzeń.
Przestrzeń, w której było miejsce tylko dla jeszcze jednej osoby.
Nie dla niej.
Wiedziała to od chwili, gdy zobaczyła jego twarz tak blisko tej drugiej. Gdy zastała ich razem, leżących i patrzących sobie w oczy. Może nawet zobaczyła fragment tego, co było kiedyś między nimi?
Wtedy się wycofała... zostawiła ich razem, uśmiechając się do siebie.
Nie chciała psuć tego obrazka.
Wszystko nagle się poskładało. Stało się tak oczywiste. I była w sumie pewna, że nazajutrz będzie jakoś inaczej. Po prostu cieplej.

His eyes were bluer than the sky,
And his teeth shined like spot lights.
He had his cute, little quirks,
And those things that were quite annoying.
He always looked hotter than everyone else,
And he always loved my compliments.
His kisses were passionate,
And his hugs were comforting.
Oh why did you take him away from me?
He was so kind,
Never hurt a fly,
But you killed him just the same.
I loved him with all my heart,
And he loved me too,
But you distroyed that all,
With one gun shot.
You killed him for being gay,
But left me.
I hate you.
He was mine,
And you took him away from me.
I shall never kiss those lips again,
Or feel his hands on my back,
As he holds me close.
You destroyed us.

And I lost the love of my life,
But you lost nothing.

Tiny fists and feet drummed on the unseen barrier in unison.
Little screams of frustration reached his unremarkable ears.

The white of her wings was as snow, if snow were pure.
Her tiny body, taut with anger, nude and nubile, struck again and again at the offending pane. Symmetrical markings ran down her sides, expanding and contracting with each breath. Ebony Hair flowed to her waist, highlights shone like stars in the midnight sky, if the sky were clean and stars were perfect.

Plain hands cupped her gently.
