Twilight Review The clumsy new girl, a crazy killer, a really wet town and a vampire with a superman complex. At first glance, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer may look like a cheesy romantic paperback and bad horror story rolled into one, but it wont take you long to find out that you are wrong, wrong, wrong. Before you know it, you will find yourself deep in a story that has you cheering for our danger magnet of a heroine and falling madly in love with the gentleman with a craving for blood.Twilight Review5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

I watch her,
The thirst for her blood making me angry.
She looks around, untroubled
By the fact that a monster wants to kill her
She glances at me with deep, brown eyes
And I know then that killing her isnt a possibilty
But, the thirst for her blood makes me stay away
I cant risk exposing my familys secret
Or murdering the one I love.

You're no longer mineI cried to youYou're no longer mine3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You listened with one ear
I pleaded and cried
And watched fear disappear
In the streets they gathered
To see this act, this crime
They did not know you
Or the fact that you're mine
You belong to me on Earth
And not with them above
I wanted to scream and yell
But you just carried on
One step closer
And then one step too far
The crowd gasps
And I let my scream out
And death catches you
Welcomes you in his arms
You are gone now
You're not longer mine.

fallen angels sleep inbetween the broken colonnades
olive leaves rustling in the distance—
carved letters on marble grooves in an odd edwardian print
a soft legend from the book of ages
of faithless men
the wind carried the whispers from the groves of yore
an antiquity unremembered;
the morning eternity spilled from the heavens
the night the ground shook and ocean broke from the dam
yellow-gray robes draping a delicate form
shrouded in the shadows of hazy afternoons
your skin was the color of ashes
gathered the stillness about you as the new moon the night

I have always wondered how far I had gone with my life. But no matter how many times I look back, I still see the same old me. The difference is Ive changed from the inside. Ive come across many people. From them I gained influence, although I never thought I would have given something back.
The time I took the position of a director, I always have doubts in my mind. I always thought that maybe Im not good for them. I have always uttered words of defeat, but Im very grateful for what God has given to me. He gave me friends

I love you so much if only you could see
But apparantly you fail to notice me
I stand in the shadows and watch you smile
Wishing I was the one making it worth while
You're so beautiful and yet I weep
Because of you, I can not sleep
Your face it haunts my very soul
Why, oh why, must you torment me so?
I lie awake thinking of you
Dark and alone feeling so blue
Everytime I close my eyes
You start to haunt and time sure flies
So please my lonesome beautiful stranger
Be free at heart and always from danger
And please stop following me everywhere I go
I love you but I can't have you so

It was an out of the way place, perfect for being alone to think. Parking her car by the side of the road she started up the trail.Pain6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Walking the trail lost in thought, she didn't need to pay attention to the trial since she had walked it so many times before. She thought about everything that had happened. She thought about Him. As if she could ever not think about him. It was a curse and no matter what she did to try and break it she could not stop think
No Time To CryI want to hold the hand inside youNo Time To Cry9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Want to slit your throat within
Oh I want to hurt you as deeply
As your killing me
My head shines against the moonlight's glow
Tears rain and dampen my rugged cheek
I want to walk this road always
I wished to walk this road never
Never said I'd run from you
Said I'd never leave you too
In my world it rains too long
I'm so frozen still
This pain is fading slowly
In fact it fades not at all
I wipe my eyes of sorrow
But then misery kisses me
I want to take you into these arms scared
Take away your despair
With depression overwhelming me
My world would be calmer with you living without tears

It was a year ago this very day
My heart it turned this ashen gray
My head surrounded by its haze
For in my loving of you dear
I blindly trusted without fear
Placing my soul within your care
No sweeter gift had I to give
For you were what I had to live
To touch & taste to feel your skin
For this, my heart, is sinking in
To the blackness deep within
A spinning hole of mass and matter
I heard something within me shatter

Crackle in my palm
Bursting with prophecy

The sky opens.

Broken pieces like glass
Why do I care?
But I'm social,
So I'll try.
Sweet to my lips
I undress your knowledge
with my hunger.
Cracking your spine
and shattering your very shield,
You have been consumed
And think to myself,
What's it like to be eaten?
But shake my head.
my eyes cloud,
And lips part
giggle with delight
As my sticky fingers

What makes me beautiful to you?
Everything about you, precious darling - if only you knew.
Would I still be beautiful if I was made new?
The sun and the stars would not hold candle to you
What about me caught your eye, turned your head?
I've watched you since before you were concieved, by my hand you were led
Was it something I did, or something I said?
I wrote a letter about it, read my answer in red
Was it my beauty, in the shape of my face?
I made you as you are, unique and perfect among your race.
Was it my patience, or was it my grace?
For who you are. I am perfecting you as I teach you new ways

Next to the graffiti wall, she slid in
Her cart and her dead, empty face

I was walking in the woods, not sure where I was going. Everywhere I looked, there was darkness, or the infrequent low hisses that would erupt from somewhere in the distance. I ran.

I heard his soft voice emanate
Oh how wonderful it was
and I loved it just because
It brings back every memory
of the day I turned eighteen
He sang me my own lullaby

I didn't dare to make a peep
As Edward's voice lulled me to sleep
And now I thank him once again
as I fade off to sleep with him
It almost makes me want to cry,

But now there's nothing left

it turned out I was losing after all
Now that you're gone
the game has ended
the candle's out
but I still feel it burn
and I can't let you go
although I wish I could
because you're trapped in my mind
and now I find...

And every night
I want to say the same thing

In 2007, Adam heard about Kurt Vonneguts death on a Sunday News program. In about two minutes, the program had neatly and concisely summed up the writers life and the details of his death, then cut to commercial. Adam had never read any of Vonneguts books or even heard of him before, but he was intrigued.
